So everyone is pretending they like each other to head out to Arizona and celebrate Melissa Gorga's birthday at some spa retreat. Melissa isn't feeling too good - I think what Melissa is coming down with is a bad feeling of impending drama…
Before everyone packs up their sequin-sucking chuckalina bathing suits, Teresa Giudice is doing a cooking demo at the mall for the 85 & Older Club. I mean seriously, yeah spinach will probably save your life but you likely have to start eating it before you're eligible for AARP.
Kathy Wakile shows up to support whatever it is Teresa is doing with olive oil, bread, and loud rambling. I remain focused on her hair. It's literally a hair helmet (hairmet?) at this point, all plasticy and just perched there. I'm perplexed. So is Wallpaper; she's confused about how all of the sudden Teresa is absolved of her sins? Kathy tells her, 'It's not like a sponge, Tre, you can't just wipe it over the mess with some kitchen cleaner and have it be gone. This is like a big mess - like you need a hazmat team, but hey – let's go heal on another Vacations By Bravo. Free shit is free shit, right?!' Cannoli and Wine for the Jersey Woman's Soul by Kathy!
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.

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!
Despite the less than inspired decor sparsely populating her own mansion, Melissa Gorga is focusing on her own "Italian Style" home decor venture!
Basing the collection, which will be featured on Joss & Main's site in a special flash sale on her Italian-Renaissance inspired home, Melissa's " Home Italian Style" collection features furniture, upholstered pieces, rugs and accessories which represent her own personal tastes! Yikes.
"I want you to walk in and feel like our home is something you haven’t seen before," the Real Housewives of New Jersey star gushed. "I always strive to find pieces that are unique. I love the wow factor."
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.
Of her take on Melissa's experience at her launch party, Teresa writes, "I was sorry that Melissa got into a fight with one of her best friends at the launch party. For the record, I didn't invite Jan or Penny. The party was open to any salon owners who called in and spoke with the Youthful 8 company reps. As soon as I found out Jan had RSVPed, I called Melissa to warn her and make sure she would be OK with it. If Melissa didn't want them to come, believe me, I would have uninvited them immediately!" I believe that, don't you?
Teresa continues, "I don't really know Jan, I just know she was one of Melissa's best girlfriends, and they were in each other's wedding. I have no idea why Jan and Melissa would have a falling out, but like I said in my interview on the show, I have Melissa's back…When Jan and Melissa were talking, I was right there to make sure it didn't get out of hand. My brother was right there too, and he wasn't upset, shrugging it off as crazy talk, so I did too. My main concern was that Melissa knew I was there for her." Really? I don't believe Melissa as far as I could throw her, but it appeared to me that Teresa didn't want to leave because she didn't want anyone to say something she wasn't expecting…
It seems Melissa Gorga changes her stories faster than she changes her lipgloss. I mean, one minute Jan is her BFF and they were in each other's weddings and the cheating allegation is the ultimate betrayal. And in the next minute, like in her recent blog, they were only friends for like a hot second 300 years ago.
So that means one of two things: Melissa didn't have any real-real friends to stack her bridal party with or she's lying about the nature of her relationship with Jan! Whatever the case, like all things Real Housewives of New Jersey, it doesn't add up!
According to our source Melissa is intent on continuing the "victim act" at all costs. "She just wants to blame Teresafor everything," our source tells us exclusively. "Melissa really needs a story line." What – you mean writing a marriage bible and staging a J. Faux pop star career isn't enough?! <gasp>
