Love Italian Style

Well, well – what have we here! A little birdie that went to the press just one day after a story emerged that her family was in major financial trouble? Or just a mere coincidence. 

Melissa Gorga‘s book has been fraught with controversy and negative reviews, and though it never even came close to the bestseller list (in fact it was actually panned for seeming to advocate such concepts as marital rape!), a new report claims Melissa is earning big from her book. And that income, coupled with her salary from Real Housewives Of New Jersey, is pulling the family out from financial failure. Interesting… 

Melissa Gorga is making over $1 million right now. Her salary and her book sales have pushed her into a 7-figure earning bracket,” a source tells Tom Murro via Radar.

Melissa Gorga's new modus operandi seems to be a different day, a different recollection, a different excuse! Recently her book Love Italian Style came under fire for promoting some not so fabulous advice.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey at first defended her book saying that what works for her marriage may not work for everyone. But now, of course, she's changing her autotune.

Melissa sat down with Vh1's The Buzz to discuss the show and her latest attempt to get attention book;claiming she wanted "controversy" to get people talking about the book. Likening herself to Miley Cyrus, Melissa brags, "She wanted controversy, her plan worked!"  So, is that stuff what Melissa actually does in her marriage or she just wanted to sell books? Just. stop. tawking.

When Melissa Gorga "wrote" (as in scrawled with pink glitter pen in her trusty Lisa Frank Trapperkeeper) her book Love Italian Style about keeping your marriage to a poison-shrouded mini oaf hot and sexy, she had no idea that some of her very traditional, shall we say, advice may be called out as disrespectful. I mean it works for Melissa right – she gets to keep POISON! GAAAAAAG

According to the popular blogspot, Jezebel, some of the Real Housewives of New Jersey star's tried and true advice is not only ridiculous, but potentially abusive!*

Among the beliefs Melissa espouses, one central theme is: "Husbands want their wives to submit; wives want our husbands to dominate." That is a direct quote from her book. And husbands want to dominate in all aspects of the marriage – from sex, to the home, their wife's wardrobe!

Melissa Gorga's first book "Love, Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage" released this week and she's been out promoting it. 

Last night Melissa attended a book signing at Mendham Books in New Jersey and this morning she stopped by for a chat with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford on 'Today'.  

I perused Amazon to see the initial reactions to Melissa's book and so far it hasn't been positive.  In Melissa's defense, many of the 1-star reviews left for her were by people who admittedly didn't read the book or only read the free excerpt from chapter 1, and some flat out said they just didn't like her on the show. 

But on the other side of that coin, of the few 5-star reviews written, those users didn't have any history of leaving product reviews except for this glowing summary of how Melissa's book changed their life.  So, that's a little suspect.  But again, the same is true for some of those negative reviewers.  The whole thing reads a little like a blog comment section – filled with both Melissa lovers and Melissa haters and the reviews are nearly all 1's and 5's, with no in-between.

You know, sometimes when the women of the different housewives franchises are promoting their endeavors, they seem real and down-to-earth.  Then there are times when one will try to sound real and down-to-earth and end up coming across as totally ridiculous.  In my opinion, this is what happened in a recent interview with Real Housewives of New Jersey's Melissa Gorga.

I'm neither a fan nor a hater of Melissa, but gracious, she sounds so self-important when all I think she's trying to do is promote her new tome and connect with her fans, but it's just too much.  I'm sure she's a nice girl, but please.  I'll let you decide for yourselves, but in the meantime…bless her heart.

Speaking to the a local New Jersey CBS station, Melissa shares that she's always up for meeting her adoring fans.  I'm sure she is!  She says, “I’m very welcoming to the fans, I always take pictures and always talk to everyone.  I would never come all the way out there and not talk to people.”  Melissa knows who pays the bills!

Both Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga get on my last nerve with their one-upping and back-and-forth and white lies on Real Housewives of New Jersey.  Petty, petty, petty!  However, I don't know what is more humorous…Tre's very thinly veiled insults or Melissa's constant high road antics as if she's never stooped to her sister-in-law's level.

After Tre revisited her table trash can flipping ways at "her" gym with brother Poison on this week's episode, Melissa is all about addressing the situation in her weekly Bravo blog.  Don't worry…she also takes plenty of opportunity to promote her book Love Italian Style!

Melissa writes, "What I saw from my husband’s conversation with his sister is that Teresa can dish it out, but she can’t take it. Come on girl, toughen up! I take it all the time. On Season 3, she mocked my music and called me a gold digger. On Season 4, she said I’d leave my husband for a richer man and I was questioned by her about being a stripper. We already know I’m a bad daughter-in-law. I don’t know how many more negative things I can be accused of."

I bet y'all can't wait until September 17th!  While I hate to wish away the spring (if we ever have one!) and summer, you are going to want to mark this date in your calendar.  Why, you ask?  Well, it's the day that Melissa Gorga's book Love, Italian Style hits the shelves.  Can't wait that long?  You can pre-order it now!  The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is going to morph into sister-in-law Teresa Giudice if it's the last thing she ever does!

Melissa's book is filled with advice on how to make love last by putting your husband first.  It's filled with tips for keeping romance alive and maintaining a fulfilling sex life.  Sadly, I don't think I'm going to be able to get Poison Gorga's little body out of my head when reading about that, so I'm not sure I'll recommend this tome to my book club…
