Melissa Gorga blog

At this point in the Real Housewives of New Jersey season, Melissa Gorga is trying to move forward in her relationship with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice. Jacqueline Laurita stirring the pot was the absolute last thing Melissa needed and it is very clear Melissa wanted nothing to do with the induced drama.

To recap, in a previous episode, Teresa remarked that her brother Joe Gorga said something about being careful who to trust and that included Jacqueline so Jacqueline decided to call him on speaker phone right then and there. As expected, the interaction between Jacqueline and Teresa blossomed into a full blown screaming fight. Needless to say, Melissa is so not here for anyone who brings drama to her husband.


Melissa and Joe have had years of discord with Teresa heavily documented on Real Housewives of New Jersey, so Jacqueline coming in between the siblings was bound to rub Melissa the wrong way. Not only that, but it really seems like Melissa does not even have it in her to expel any energy to hate on Jacqueline. Melissa is just not into Jacqueline’s nonsense which she made clear in her latest Bravo blog.

To be fair to all sides, to a certain extent I understand why Jacqueline wanted to go to straight to the source by calling Joe himself, but it just seemed like she was more into stirring up trouble for the show instead of resolving drama. It really didn’t seem like she had any harmonious intentions with that move or her other comments about Teresa

In her blog, Melissa wrote, “This was the first argument we’ve really ever had, and I tried very hard to keep my cool. I was pretty straightforward with why I felt Jacqueline was out of line and to this day I still don’t think she gets it or wants to. When she had her finger in my face, I realized two things: 1) This is NOT the friend I’ve known for years and 2) I have the patience of a saint!”

Melissa is into this show for the opportunities that it can afford her family, not the instigated drama that is being caused for no real reason. I think that calling herself a “saint” is a little bit of overkill, but at the same time, I imagine that it’s very difficult to deal with someone trying to start a fight between your husband and sister-in-law.

Melissa isn’t the most entertaining person in reality TV (that is for sure), but I honestly think it’s just because she’s too nice. So as of now, she’s really not coming for Jacqueline, but she is still looking like the bigger person. With that said, Melissa added, “Something is VERY off with Jacqueline. There is a lot of animosity from her that has come out of nowhere, and I wish I could say things get better from here, but as you will soon see this was just the beginning.”

In a selfish way, I’m kind of happy Jacqueline decided to stir the pot because this season would be pretty boring otherwise. I cannot wait to watch the drama unfold in the upcoming episodes.
