In her Bravo blog, Caroline addresses the multiple family bonding, therapy sessions, and misguided team-building exercises. It was so much more believable when these folks weren't getting along? How much more passive aggressiveness between Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice can the viewing audience take? Give us (and the poor therapy horse!) a break, Bravo!
The Manzo matriarch begins by stating the obvious, writing, "The past two episodes of RHONJ were pretty intense, wouldn't you agree? As promised, the viewing audience witnessed a few very real and emotional moments from cast members that you would least expect, my husband Albert being one of them. I'm not gonna lie, that knocked me for a loop, I wasn't expecting that at all."
Melissa took to her blog to explain that she didn't purposely exclude certain people at her birthday dinner raising of the glass. "I was grateful for the opportunity to thank our family and friends at my birthday dinner. I addressed individuals as part of a couple and I gave extra love to those who needed the positive attention and appreciation. Joe Giudice, Kathy, and Rosie really opened up in Arizona. They showed their hearts. I was proud of them for it, and said so. Somehow, my singling out some with special admiration got twisted into “snubbing” others. That was not the vibe in the room or my intention. Frankly, I was upset to hear that anyone interpreted it that way."
Things begin with yet another fight about Melissa Gorga allegedly cheating on Joe Gorga. I was rolling my eyes and guzzling my wine with my Milania Hair Care Hairmuffs on so I really don't know what that man was yammering on about. I was all prepared to throw my wine glass at the TV in my own Incredible Hulk Man-angsty moment when Bravo flashed us back 12 hours earlier.
And I really wish I had been prepared with my blinders on! We are greeted by Poison grinding his junk in Melissa's face. 'Happy Birthday baby – just call me Justin Timberlake cause I got you some d*ck in a box!' Melissa is like 'Where? I don't see it… Oh. Yeah that little guy. Awwww… thanks… Hi TUHREEEZA!" If I got Poison's junk in my face for a birthday gift I would cancel birthdays for the rest of my life. And Melissa had never been so happy to see her sister-in-law.
In the preview clip, we see Joe Gorga sucking on Melissa's toes as Teresa walks in their room at the Miraval spa in Arizona (yes, we're stillllll there!!). Teresa gifts Melissa with a pair of black lace underwear with a peace sign bedazzled on the crotch for her birthday present. Ya know, because there's peace in Jersey now.
Melissa shared a photo of the moving truck in the driveway. She wrote, "It's been a long 2 days.. 12 hrs yesterday & still going strong. Can't believe it's actually happening." There probably wasn't too much to pack as that house was pretty empty for its massive size! Which I'm not knocking – I'm all about less is more. I hate "stuff", so I'm a minimalist when it comes to that.
The Gorgas hit spent their Labor Day weekend at their Jersey Shore house before heading home to Montville to pack up and finalize things. The couple is now renting a place in a Franklin Lakes and are reportedly planning to build a new mansion. She can furnish it with her new home decor line, right?
There are still some disputes over the selling price of the home and questions about whether or not the Gorgas owned or rented it. We've been checking every day, but so far the closing and sale price haven't been updated on the government site. We'll keep you posted!
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!

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."
