MELISSA GORGA: Another Housewife who thinks HW viewers are interested in a recap instead of her “inside” views… MeGo’s passive/aggressive blog… BORING!!
Does everyone see why I love him so much? He said it himself, he’s weak for her whenever she is in front of him and he forgets about everything. That’s a great brother who loves his sister. He would never look at her and turn her away when she finally wants to mend the relationship.
I know a lot of you are concerned that she is running to Kathy, Joe, and me because things have gone sour with her friends and they don’t want to deal with her anymore. You know what, that may be the case, but to be honest I’m going to give her the chance to prove it. She is family, she is Joe’s only sister. She may need us now, and we won’t turn our backs on her. It’s not our style.
There is love there if she could just get past the competitive BS. I’m going to be optimistic and put my all into the relationship. I really do want it to work. For the first time in my life, I feel like we are both really going to try and fix this. I truly want to enjoy her company and not because I have to, because I want to.
One last thing, when we taped the episode, I referred to when Jacqueline punched Caroline. I had heard about the situation from Teresa, and she has talked about it in previous episodes. But as I have gotten closer to both Jacqueline and Caroline, I learned that at the time Jacqueline was suffering from post-partum depression. I realize now that it was a bad example to give Teresa during our conversation. Post-partum is a very serious issue, and I shouldn’t have referred to it. NOTE: Missy throws Tree under the bus… bet Missy was all ears when Tree was telling her about DonCaro and Jax!!
I’m so happy you all love the remix of On Display! It’s my favorite! That was my first song, it’s my baby, and I will never forget what it felt like to hear it on the radio with Ryan Seacrest! Thank you, Jesus! NOTE: How delusional is MeGo to think that anyone “loved” her ‘baby’!!!
CAROLINE MANZO: DonCaro immediately sucks up to MissAndy: Hello again, and for those who celebrated today, Happy Pride!
This is DonCaro’s ENTIRE blog… why bother???
They say when one door closes, another one opens; I think that’s the best way to define tonight’s episode. The tides have certainly changed, and I believe the dynamic of the show will change as well, do you agree?
I felt bad for Jacqueline, but at the same time I was happy for the Gorgas and Wakiles. I meant what I said when I told Kathy and Joe that removing myself from the situation could only help in their healing process with the Giudices. There’s no denying that now as I watch from week to week that my instinct was correct. We’ll see where it goes from here.
I’ve said it a million times, we fight big and we love big, but in the end there’s always forgiveness. I’m happy to see that Joe and Teresa are going to therapy. I don’t know what the outcome was, so I guess I’ll find out when you guys do. I was also happy to see Kathy and Melissa respond in a positive way to T’s request; all you can do is try, right? Baby steps.
One thing I want to address is the Jacqueline/Caroline punch in the face comment. As you all know, we’ve discussed this before and neither Jac or I have tried to hide it. NOTE: It’s ‘neither Jac “NOR” I’… not “OR”…
What bothers me is the fact that it was brought up again, so many years later. This happened over ten years ago, shortly after Jac gave birth to CJ. She was suffering from post partum depression and going through a really tough time. I’m insulted and disappointed that T would use Jac’s suffering as a sticking point. There’s nothing funny about post partum depression, shame on her for that. The bottom line is we forgave and forgot, and we have a wonderful relationship. Yes, we have disagreements from time to time, but it never lasts long. We talk about it and move on, TOGETHER.
Congrats to Melissa on her success with On Display! Every time I watch her reach another goal, I remember how she spoke of her dad and the hopes and dreams he had for her. I can’t imagine how she feels at those moments, bittersweet for sure.
Well, that’s all I have for now, see you next week and as always thank you so much for watching!
It seems like there has been an epiphany here in New Jersey overnight. I was certainly skeptical about the shift in sentiment coming from my cousin Teresa, considering that just a day before (to my surprise) she was on Jacqueline’s deck telling her and Caroline that I was fake. (Well, not in those exact words.) NOTE: It’s “Caroline and ME!!!” When will these Housewives EVER get “me” and “I” right????
But when she actually did call me and suggest that we meet, I was genuinely happy to hear her voice. I imagine that everyone has their time to feel ready to make amends, and I have always been willing to go in that direction. I wasn’t happy about the tabloid articles, especially that things were said about me that were absolutely untrue and hurtful, but I truly wanted to put those feelings aside and look at the bigger picture.
Our lunch together went well. I was cautiously optimistic and did not want to rock the boat, so I did not ask her about the tabloids. As we all have witnessed in the past, Teresa does not like talking about certain situations, and the last thing I wanted was another big blow-up. It’s always been very confusing for me to read all the negativity that has been written about me and quoted by Teresa. It’s one thing to hear the words being spoken first hand and another to read what someone is saying about you. Only to have it be denied. It’s pretty simple, if you disagree with what a particular tabloid is writing, then why continue to do interviews or “photo shoots” with them?
Maybe I’m just being naive, but wouldn’t that make sense? The problem for me is that I need the people close to me to be honest with me. I’m easy. I cope much easier with the truth. Show me your genuine feelings, good or bad, and I will deal with it. I don’t like to hold a grudge, however, I do get hurt, mostly from disappointment. I thought it would just be best not to pepper the situation in any way and keep it positive. I thought that if things still bothered me in the future, perhaps Teresa and I could talk about it when our relationship was stronger and she wouldn’t feel like I was attacking her. It felt like Teresa was ready to get back to a happier place and so was I. It was a good feeling.
It is so sad for me to see that the Manzo and Laurita families seemed to be the sacrificial lambs in this whole process. After all, they have been wonderful friends, and from the time I first met them, they were always trying to help get us all back together again. Let’s hope that they won’t give up on any of us. You can never have too many caring friends. Let’s all hope for the best, I for one am tired of all the fighting.
