Melissa Gorga the newest Housewife on the Real Housewives of New Jersey has a lot to say about Tree, Caroline, Jackie and Kathy, but her real reason for signing on to RHONJ? It’s all about her singing career. (Interesting that the email sent to SH (here) that caused such a brouhaha said that Melissa’s whole intention for getting on RHONJ was to further her singing career.)
But, if Melissa is such a world-class singer, why would she go through the constant ‘heartbreak’… now there’s a drinking game… take a drink every time you see a video of the cast of RHONJ and they say ‘heartbreak’ or ‘heartbreaking’… you’ll be looking like this in a matter of minutes….of a reality TV show to get her singing showcased?
Are the rumors true that Melissa was pissed with Tree JOO-DICE for not acting like la famiglia and ‘sharing the wealth’ with Melissa and her husband, Joe during the first two seasons of RHONJ by way of introducing Melissa and Joe and allowing them some screen time?
During last season, Danielle states that it was Melissa who was feeding her information to use against Tree… not just to inflame Tree, but to also get Melissa noticed by the Bravo producers.
According to Danielle, it was Melissa who told Danielle to bring up Tree’s nephew at the reunion, as there were problems brewing between Tree and Melissa and Melissa knew that bringing up the subject of not recognizing her nephew would really steam Tree. Of course, there’s still that rumor out there that the nephew is not Melissa’s son, but a baby that Juicy’s ‘side’, Tara G or T, had. Who knows? It’s difficult to piece this relationship together.
Are both Tree and Melissa playing a huge game on RHONJ viewers? Tree is a pretty sneaky biatch and Melissa can’t be too far behind her in that department… Melissa has been in the family for almost 10 years.
Melissa is very serious about her music. You always stand by a piano if you want your audience to think you’re serious…
So, with that in mind, here’s a scenario: Melissa thinks she is a fantastic singer. Tree says to Melissa that RHONJ would be a great springboard for you, but no one will watch you if all you do is sing. There has to be a really good back story to the reason that you would participate in the show. Melissa and Tree confer and come up with the tried and true story of competing women. Yeah, let’s really hate each other on the show… since we know each other so well, we could really make it believable.
Melissa would only have to suffer through such ‘heartbreak’ for one season and Tree would come out of it a little bruised, but a lot of viewers would have such sympathy for her that they would want to see her back and would even buy cookbooks 3 and 4 “Sauce or Gravy” and “Cumin, Dinner’s Getting Cold: Fast Meals if You Don’t Make it to the DinnerTable.”
After Melissa has her singing career off the ground and she’s relocated to LA, there will be a spot left open for another RHONJ… this time it might be one or two of Caroline’s estranged sisters… now that would be a show!
