WhenJoe Gorga wanted to give Melissa Gorga a fun week celebrating her birthday at a spa with her co-stars and family, what she got isn't quite she was expecting.
Melissa took to her blog this week to share why she was just not into the therapy sessions at Miraval. Melissa says she's just all therapied out after the weekend in the mountains with Dr. V.
Melissa shared about this week's episode, "This was a strange one for me. I’m not going to sugar coat it, when I was told we were going to a spa resort in Arizona to celebrate my birthday, this is not exactly what I pictured. I don’t even think Joe quite understood what Miraval was."
About the horse therapy: "As I said that morning, I honestly did not want to do therapy and healing. Not that I didn’t want to heal our family, I just wanted to relax and for everyone to have a good time and enjoy our vacation. We had just done therapy at Lake George. We needed a break."
Because Teresa Giudice has nothing more pressing to worry about in her life, she's making sure we all know that her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga was not the only Real Housewife invited to the MTV VMA's last night.
Sunday afternoon Teresa Tweeted that she turned down an invite to the VMAs to spend the weekend with her family, which might not be the whole truth. You're shocked, I know.
Reality TV stars turned out for the MTV VMAs last night, while not too many other celebrities/musicians bothered.
Melissa Gorga,Joe Gorga, Snooki, Farrah Abraham, a few Mob Wives, and more were snapped on the red carpet before the event and also at a few of the after parties going on around NYC. But if you watched the VMAs, you know that barely any big name stars were in attendance. I tuned in and lost count of how many times the cameras scanned the audience and only focused in on Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Will Smith and family, Lady Gaga and One Direction. That's it. No Kardashians cheering on their beloved Yeezus, although I swore I saw Kylie Jenner sitting behind the Smith fam. It didn't feel like they gave away very many awards, either. The whole thing was just "off". I will give props to Justin Timberlake – he's the real deal and performed his ass off!
Did you watch the show last night? I think I would've been more entertained watching Melissa Gorga perform than a few of the duds they had on.

Hmmm… well color me surprised! Last year Melissa and Joe Gorga listed their Montville mansion for $3.8 million dollars. Some reports speculated they were having financial troubles and had to move, other sources claimed they were illegally living in a "spec house" built to promote Joe's business and were responsible for sudden mortgage hikes if they didn't sell the property.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Melissa started off gushing about how happy she is that the family is getting along. "It’s such a beautiful thing to be able to have Sunday dinners together and really enjoy one another's company. Antonia and Milania are priceless together! That’s all I ever wanted; just to see the kids happy and see Joe and Teresa happy and be able to have all our children at one dinner table."
Teresa Giudice's life got a little more complicated this week, but the reality star still has time to blog for Bravo.The Real Housewives of New Jersey star took to her blog to serve up a few backhanded compliments and digs at family, friends, and former public relations reps.
First up, she talked about the dinner with Melissa and Joe and then added "I really am trying to let things roll off my back. I just want my family together and at peace, no matter what. Insult me, make fun of me, do what you will. I'll keep being a "good little girl."" Teresa is, of course, referring to Melissa Gorga's dig when they were in the kitchen. "Keep being a good little girl and then we can all always be friends" Some media outlets were assuming Teresa's quote was in reference to the negative press over her fraud case – they obviously don't watch the show.
Last night's Real Housewives of New Jersey was all very…orange. From Caroline Manzo's hair as she bossed around her family and tried broker a treaty between Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice to Joe Gorga's billboard extravaganza, orange was definitely the color scheme. Thankfully, it's a color I like. What I don't like is all the underhanded quips and lack of accountability, but I've learned that behavior is par for the course with this crowd!
Melissa Gorga takes her boys to visit Joe at the job site and he gets a call asking him to model on a tanning salon billboard. Mel doesn't want to join him in his highway advertising debut because Tre once did a commercial for the same salon. What a throwback! Melissa doesn't want Teresa to assume she's copying her yet again. She's content just to drive the bulldozer. All of the bouncing and shrieking and "make it stop" is probably something Joe is used to hearing in the bedroom.
Teresa is hosting the first family dinner in ages. She has her girls help her prepare the table, and they are excited to see their cousins. Teresa asks the always entertaining Melania if she plans to cook for her husband when she grows up. Um no. Melania's husband will definitely be cooking for her.
