Some interesting categories!!

RHONJ melissa gorga amazon review categories arrow

These are just a few of the NEW customer reviews:

  • I can’t believe this book was actually published! Don’t publishers check the work first? I thought the title was cute and wasn’t expecting a master piece, just some simple entertainment. After reading the first chapter, I had to go back and read it again. I couldn’t believe how it had been written! Very choppy and no continuity. Don’t get me started on the grammar. I felt like I needed a red pen to start correcting things! Kind of like my kids middle school book reports. I never did finish the book, my head was killing me. Life is too short to waste time on this book. I feel cheated out of fifteen bucks and my time for someone else’s gain.
  • I think that the publishing house should be ashamed and called out publicly for publishing this tripe. I do believe that this may be the worst book I have ever read. There is no shame in meeting your husband while you worked in a Gentleman’s Club that he frequented. There is no shame in marrying a man for his money and then falling in love with him. But, even the true version of her life prior to being on RHONJ would have been boring. I was not expecting a literary masterpiece. But, as a teacher, I wanted to slash nearly every sentence with a red pen, until I got so exasperated I could read no more. How in the world did this woman get into college. She mangles the English language as if she was angry at it. As to the content of the book and her hot and happy marriage. I am surprise a woman with three children could be so immature, shallow and vapid. If she really believes this idiocy that she writes about, which is the antithesis of feminism and reality in 2013, then she won’t be married much longer. She truly does not know what love is. And that is very sad.
  • Shame on whoever green-lighted this book as a favor to Bravo. Have some standards.
  • This book is ridiculous. Everything she says contradicts what she said on Tv & in Magazines. She didn’t get married until 2004 & met Joe in 2003. In the book she says she married Joe in 2000. She is so fake & is the biggest liar I know. There is nothing in this book that is even true. It is a work of fiction. Her marriage is a joke. Don’t waste your money on this farce of a book!!
  • She sounds like a cat in heat but even her singing is better than this garbage. I think maybe one of her kids helped her to write it because it appears it was written by a 5 year old. She is in love, I will give her that, but not with Joe the worm. She is madly in love with herself. I am still trying to figure out how she got a publisher to publish this nonsense. Stick to being a wife and mom Melissa, you have no other talents. Don’t waste your money on this. I could barely get through it but I read it in an appropriate place, the bathroom. Too bad I couldn’t flush it.
  • You want some essential newly wed advice from this fabulous book? POOP!!!! Yes, poop. Apparently you aren’t supposed to let your husband know you do it, nor are you supposed to let him know you grow hair on your legs and armpits. Human women are so last year! Why have a breathing female when you can have a fake one, right Melissa Gorga? Don’t forget not to poop!
  • This book made my IQ drop 20 points!!! I never liked her on the show and thought she was a big fake but got her book just to see if I can find another side to her and maybe she can b honest in her book…guess not all boring crap that I didn’t care to read ! U can tell that everything she writes is just as fake as she is on the show! Whoever gave her a book deal is crazy! The language and grammar is that of a 8th grader ..with all her money she should have paid for some1 to write the book for her! Good thing I read the book in an hour because I’m bringing it right back to the store ..I refuse to pay for crap !
  • Since I’m just learning to read books with lots of pages, my tutor thought this would be a good starter book for me. Before I started, I shaved my pits & legs, gave myself a good bikini waxing, threw on some yoga pants, and put on a super hot top over my to small push-up bra. I also ordered Chinese food & put it on a plate for when my man came home. I wrote a quick note to my “King” on the napkin next to the Chinese food. The note said, “Dear King, This is your queen, I’ve shaved, haven’t pooped , and prepared this meal for you. You can find me in my recording studio, reading my first book with lots of pages. Your Devoted, Queen.”   I don’t understand all the hateful reviews. For a first time reader, I found the sentence structure to be very simple. Perhaps this book should be required reading for middle school girls. My favorite part of the book was, “Loin & The Ram: A Wild Love Story”. Who doesn’t love a great zodiac story! I hope Melissa Gorga’s second book with lots of pages in it, has more zodiac stories.   If you haven’t read this yet, download some of Melissa’s iTunes songs, strap on some headphones, and engross yourself in the tale that Melissa Gorga wove. Just be sure to properly groom yourself and put some Chinese food on a plate for your “King”.

RHONJ Melissa gorga amazon review

Just to be fair, a sampling of the FIVE star reviews:

  • I love Melissa and Joe and I read this book in a day. Their marriage is similar to mine and I agree with most of what she says. I enjoyed it. Not sure why there is so much hate going on. If you aren’t happy in your marriage you should take some pointers instead of saying nasty things. Hmm…
  • They are a perfect couple! In addition to all the fascinating background information, Melissa also shares fashion and beauty tips and advice. I love getting the inside scoop! So fun that Melissa included her make up artist in her book! (I hope he writes his own book one day…soon!)   I was also happy to find the book is completely in Melissa’s voice. It sounds like her when I read it.   I didn’t get the feeling there was a ghost writer involved with this at all.

NOTE:  Nice try to quash those ghostwriter questions!  ‘Cause everybody knows that MeGo slaved away, writing EVERY night curled up in a corner of her sofa from exactly 10 pm to 2 am!  

Maybe that last reviewer didn’t get the “FEELING”… but, as EVERYONE knows, MeGo’s book was written by the same ghostwriter who wrote Snooki’s Pulitzer-prize-winning books… Valerie Frankel, as mentioned on SH back in December!  Val’s dream is to write a NYTimes Bestseller.  YO!  Val!!  Creep on over to TreeJoodice’s marble mausoleum…heard she’s looking for someone to collect more recipes for her next cookbook!   Somehow it always winds it’s way back to Tree… poor MeGo!!

Well, what else is new???  According to, da Lauritas used Mark McGuire, one of their Franklin Lakes comps, as their attorney during an interview with police!

RHONJ bubba jax four

“Mark McGuire of Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, spent 45 minutes with the couple  during their interview with police following an altercation in April at a salon  opening in Ridgewood. McGuire drove off with the Lauritas after the couple’s  interview over the tiff.

Detectives later discovered that McGuire was not a lawyer, and he was  promptly arrested last week and charged with “unauthorized practice of law.”

NOTE:  Mark McGuire is another phony baloney associate of the NJ crew who filed for bankruptcy.   Obviously, McGuire was used by da Lauritas as he looked and acted the part!  

“Mr. McGuire uses the Franklin Lakes Property as his mailing address and sometime residence, as he goes weeks without being present at the Franklin Lakes Property.”

McGuire also, according to these documents, ripped off his own sister… denying any knowledge of the whereabouts or sale of IBM stock given to him by his sister!

McGuire’s occupation?  Pizzeria manager in Franklin Lakes!

Real Housewives of New Jersey: Somebody Alert Andy… Phony New Jersey Housewife and it Ain’t KimG!

Well, isn’t this something!

Isn’t it considered a felony crime to describe oneself as an ‘upcoming Real Housewives of New Jersey star’ without kissing Andy Cohen’s ring and receiving his blessing first?

                                                              Uh, it explicitly says right here in your contract, that you signed, Taylor, that you must kiss my ring before your show airs.  I only let you slide this long ’cause your mouth is so huge I thought I’d just have an elbow left…

This blurb was on a local Louisville KY site:  “Playboy centerfold and upcoming “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Annika Bruggeworth will attend Saturday night’s shindig with her husband, Dr. Scott Bruggeworth.”

Here’s what… this ‘upcoming’ self-proclaimed ‘star’ of RHONJ is an attention diva and her husband is a dentist.

So, the following scenario probably takes place during the next season of Real Housewives of New Jersey on a “very special episode” of RHONJ

“Albie made all by himself a yummy surprise for his mommy... her favorite chocolate walnut cheesecake, which took him two days to make ’cause he was studying hard for a place in next year’s law class at Phoenix University of Online Law.   Albie knows that as a lawyer, he must understand and follow the letter of the law and he applied that understanding to the cheesecake recipe.  The recipe said to grind walnuts for the bottom crust and since the recipe assumed that everyone knows to not use the shell, that was not fully explained in the recipe and, of course, Albie ground the walnuts for the cheesecake crust, shell and all.

                                                Albie, you idiot… look what you did to Tree and lil Milania… make sure you wrap the rest of that rock-riddled cheesecake for Juicy…

“All the Manzos and Joo-dices are seated in their giant king and queen diningroom chairs, fully sated from the meal they just devoured when Albie enters with his masterpiece chocolate walnut cheesecake… it’s especially special ’cause even Chris can see that Albie didn’t swipe it from the Brownstone.  All the ooohs and aaaahs are over and before Jackie can get a forkful, Tree and little Milania have already attacked the cheesecake and began screaming.

“Forks drop and everyone covers their ears from the eerie sounds coming from little Milania amplified by Tree’s shreaking.  Little bits of white tooth chips are landing on their dessert plates and blood is dripping from their lips.  Caroline has seen this before (when Lauren beat the hell out of Christopher and Albie ’cause they told her she would never be flight attendant…) and knew a dentist was needed.  Big Albie and Caroline whisk them off to the nearest dentist, (Juicy wasn’t there… he had to attend an ‘important meeting’ at the apartment over the pizza shop) which is the above-named ‘upcoming star’ of RHONJ‘s husband.   As they rush into the dentist’s office, they are met by the ‘upcoming star’… her screen time lasts for five seconds.”

                                                Danielle warned about havin’ a non-Manzo on the show… losing teeth won’t make ME quit…

And that is why this particular fame-seeking wife of a dentist thinks she is the next ‘upcoming star’ of RHONJ… try as she may, poor thing will never be another Kim G.

                                                Yo, dental assistant… keep your drill and suction equipment out of Franklin Lakes… this is MY town, honey.  Got it???


Real Housewives of New Jersey: Caroline Manzo…BigAlbie Manzo Fired… Albie Manzo Had a Cush Job With The State of NJ!

Gov. Chris Christie today suspended two members of the North Jersey District Water Supply Commission and said the agency had stonewalled his administration’s efforts to reform it for more than a year.

Gov. Chris ChristieYou’re fired, Big Albie…

Gov. Chris Christie

Commissioners Albert Manzo and Michael T. Cricco were given until Monday to submit their resignation or face disciplinary action. Christie, appearing at a Statehouse news conference, said the men had abused the public trust and were prime examples of an unresponsive “shadow government” of independent agencies and authorities statewide.

The governor cited Manzo, co-owner of the Brownstone restaurant in Paterson, for telling officials during his nomination to the seven-member board that he lived at his place of business and for failing to reveal that he owned a home in Franklin Lakes.   The misleading information enabled Manzo to avoid scrutiny and a possible senatorial veto during his nomination hearing, Christie said.

Manzo is the husband of one of the stars of the television series “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” and their house in Franklin Lakes has been a shooting location for the series.

Christie targets Commissioners Cricco and Manzo; Manzo says he won't resign on guv's time line                                                                    Just look at my Big Albie… does he look like he would lie???   You better answer “NO”, ’cause I got friends…

Christie said Cricco was paid for attending commission meetings at NJDWSC headquarters in Wanaque  while still on the clock for his job at the Schools Development Authority, where he made $80,000 in 2009. Cricco, who like Manzo makes $7,500 a year as a commission member, attended 20 meetings while still on SDA time and had been warned by the school agency to stop the double-dipping practice, according to the governor.  “He will be fired today from the SDA,” Christie said.

                                                                     Yeah, we share Albie’s apartment is right next to my apartment at the Brownstone…

Christie also said Wednesday he was introducing legislation that would grant him new powers to control all regional agencies whose jurisdiction spreads over multiple towns and counties. The NJDWSC, which runs two reservoirs and provides water to 3 million North Jersey residents, is one of a handful of such agencies that is not subject to a gubernatorial veto.  “No one is paying attention to what’s going on in these places,” Christie said.

During an interview conducted at his house in Franklin Lakes on Wednesday, Manzo said he would not resign.  He also said that he maintains an apartment upstairs at the Brownstone and voting records would show that to be his legitimate address. He oftens spends the night there when business at the restaurant/catering hall keeps him late, he said.

“Call me nuts, but I love Paterson. I was born there and I was raised there and my heart is there,” Manzo said.    NOTE TO BIG ALBIE:   You’re nuts!
