MelissaGorga’s 2011 Christmas Party Preparations… With “FabulousFred”!

Let’s take a look back at MeGo’s preparation for her 2011 Christmas party… with “FabulousFred.”

“Fabulous Fred stops by to review Melissa Gorga’s Christmas party/event… FabFred said that the party would be at least $50,000… and that was with schlubs for servers.  If Melissa goes with attractive servers who can speak, FabFred’s gonna add another $10,000!   Who has a step and repeat at a private Christmas house party???”

How much money are the Gorgas going to spend on their fabulous annual Christmas party this year??

After their embarrassing Dr.OZ appearance, playin’ a very bad version of TheNewlywedGame which they LOST, da Gorgas made a very special video, sharing their top three tips for keepin’ that love tank full!  Apparently, their playing the MarriageGame was in lieu of MeGo talkin’ about her book… actions speak louder than words!  Their actions showed how much they didn’t know each other!

For you all who really think that MeGo’s hair is real, check out that piece that is out of place as you watch this… just like her hubbend, MeGo has fake hair!   AND… could JoGo possibly get a tighter shirt??  TheHulk he is not!  Poor JoGo needs Danielle to take him shopping ala DannyPro!

There is a customer review on Amazon… showing that MeGo’s book has the distinction of bein’ the first Housewife book to cause a DIVORCE!

“Do NOT buy this Book!!!!!!  I am NOW GETTING DIVORCED because of this book!!! I recently bought this book and took it very seriously as I am just recently married and was desperate to have a hot,sexy, happy marriage like Melissa and Joe.

One of Melissa’s strategies in her book for a great marriage was never ever let your new husband know you POOP! Well my husband my recently laid off and was at home while he was looking for a new job and I REALLY had to poop so bad but couldn’t get away from him. I figured I would wait till he went to sleep to poop.

As I was sitting on my hubby’s lap caressing his head like I always do, my tummy started to rumble and before I knew it I POOPED MY PANTS right on his lap!!! He was so mortified he ran out of the house said he needed to get some milk at the store and has NOT been seen since!! I would NOT recommend this book to anyone suffering with bowel issues! ugh.”

RHONJ Melissa Gorga amazon reviews arrow

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!!

MELISSA GORGA: MeGo’s Book… Amazon ONE-Star Reviews Are In!!


Yes, MeGo’s book… the one she’s been pushin’ on her BravoBlog for months… has finally been released and the customer reviews are in at!

22 out of the 28 reviews gave MeGo’s marriage book a ONE star rating…

RHONJ gorga book reviews amazon

These are just a few…

  • “Melissa is too full of herself and although nine years of marriage is a great step, it is still nothing monumental to say “I have all the answers to make anyone’s marriage hot!” Truth be told, through this book and on tv, her husband is naturally totally inlove with her and they have their fights and bad times like everyone else. This book is just her own package to make some extra money to pretend she has some secret we all don’t know, but there is no secret. BUT if you want to just read a biography about her life, then this is the book for you. Personally, she can seem annoying and conceited and a bit full of herself in this book…but whatever.”
  • “That’s rich, Teresa’ sister-in-law would write a book about family. She clawed her way on to national television to destroy her in-laws. She even attacked her own nieces. This woman has no scruples, ethics or morals.
  • “I read the first chapter online and it was a joke. She wants us to believe that all the girls in school were jealous of her. That’s the same crap she peddles on Jersey Housewives! Because she falsely accuses others of what she is indeed guilty of I don’t believe anything she says.”   Content aside, this book strains credulity in that was even published with it’s inept, nonsensical editing.As for the content, if you are familiar with the Bravo show she is on you can clearly see her relationship with her husband is shallow and all for the cameras. Her book does nothing to dispel this impression. Do not waste your money!”
  • “Marriage advice from someone married less than my 20 year marriage? LOL You are not qualified to give advice, to sing, to dance, to act, to give decor advice, beauty tips etc. AT ALL. EVER.  It would be like taking peace advice from Idi Amin, humility lessons from Madonna, how to be charitable from Imelda Marcos, relationship advice from Terrence Howard or financial advice from Heidi & Spencer. I think you get the idea.  I NEVER will buy anything from anyone affiliated with RHONJ show other than Teresa Guidice. Everyone but her can’t be taken seriously.  Your publisher and music manager are as clueless as you if they think they can fool anyone with the joke that is your book or music. If it wasn’t so laughable and pathetic it would be insulting.  Get a clue and get off the Teresa show.  A forever non fan of yours.”
  • “Nothing about Melissa screams ‘love Italian style’. Italians love big and they love hard , they put their family first . Not just Italians , but all good people in general strive to do this . Melissa on the other hand is 34 years old,ready and willing to give up time with her family to gyrate and lip-sync in trashy NJ clubs while her disgusting sister babysits . A good person would not turn their husband against his own sister out of jealousy and want for control . Tell me Melissa, why should ANYWAY take your advice or want to emulate your marriage?”

Just to be fair, let’s take a look at one of the FIVE-star ratings, which were all like this… all pushin’ the book:

  • “Stop what you’re doing and place your order. This book is a Must Have by all means!! Everything you want to read about and more!!”

We’re givin’ MeGo’s book 937,208,939 Kens…

TERESA GIUDICE: Tree’s BravoBlog… Tree is DONE!… “When You’re On TV People Want What You Have”… Gorgas “Freaked Out” By New Cast Members… BUY MY STUFF!!

Bravo…  Tree’s ghostwritten BravoBlog… we GET IT!!

RHONJ Tree Melissa pg

Hello Baby Dolls!

Another roller coaster episode, right? I loved seeing everyone together again. I wish it could stay that way forever! Unfortunately when you’re on TV, people want what you have. They want to be on TV too and they’ll do anything to make it happen or they just want to take you down because they’re sick of watching you. I get it. I’ve seen it happen now on every season of every Housewives show in every city. It’s not fun to be the target, but it comes with the territory. The problem is when newer cast members join and get attacked, they can freak out like Melissa and Joey were. You have to stay united and refuse to let any strangers break you down. But I get that it’s hard. It shouldn’t be hard for family to believe family over strangers, but…

I’m definitely not happy to see where this season is going based on how Melissa and Joey are reacting to the rumors. It’s all my fault again. I get it. It’s easier to blame their own sister/sister-in-law than it is to blame a stranger. It sounds strange, but here’s why.

First of all, blaming me takes all of the emphasis off the actual rumors. Instead of anyone looking into those, they’re all busy looking at me. Fine, deflect away. I’m here for you.  NOTE:  We’re givin’ the side eye to those “rumors”… not ALL the rumors!

Second, going after family is safe. They know I will never do anything to them. With a stranger, you can’t be so sure. They don’t want to go after Penny because she might take it to a whole new level. Easier to befriend her, right? I wouldn’t be looking to make BFFs with someone who was talking to my ex-boyfriend and threatening to expose rumors about me, but that’s just me.  NOTE:  It’s difficult to sort out who’s friends with whom!  As for Penny publicly communicating with Aarater and BulldogNJ, if you want to believe it all, that is up to you.  IMO, the whole thing stinks ala RoxyPoxyGirl.  Bulldog now can’t put out his expose re MeGo because attys are stopping him?  Let’s see the legal documents!   RoxyPoxyGirl did the exact same thing… guess Bravo/whoever is tweeting thinks viewers forgot about RoxyPoxy!

And third, family will always forgive you, and they know it. Family will always be there. To save themselves, they feel like they have to throw me under the bus. I don’t like it but I can’t do anything about it. They are going to believe what they want to believe. Their beliefs make no sense to me — they don’t believe Penny one minute and the next they do. Pick one! They already confronted Penny at the Youthful 8 Milania Collection launch party and she told them I had nothing to do with it. But it wasn’t enough for them. They had to keep going after her. Why? And when they did, suddenly Penny changed her mind that I had something to do with it. Why would she suddenly do that? Why didn’t she say that when I was right in front of her?

But it’s how they’ve chosen to deal with this and I can’t seem to stop them. I’ve done everything I could possibly do, and now I’m done. Done.

I was very happy to go support Kathy at Dylan’s Candy Bar with my 4 daughters. They had a great time! Love to see people’s success!

I was also so happy  Jacqueline asked me to help her with her speech. It wasn’t as random as you might think because in November I had just given my own first big speech at the NephCure Countdown to the Cure Fundraiser at Capitale in NYC ( It was a black-tie affair with tons of press and I was so so so nervous. But I worked it out and was excited to help Jacqueline work hers out too.

I love Nicholas and so does Joe. Since Nick and Audriana were born so close together, Joe always looked at Nicholas like sort of a son too. We missed him a lot.

Finally, did you see my new Skinny Italian food line? I loved the visit to the showroom with my husband, mom, and mother-in-law. I’m so lucky to have such a supportive husband and parents. I love them so much! I’m so excited for you all to try Skinny Italian Foods! It’s all imported from Italy and so so amazing! We have 7 different artisan pastas — the closest thing to homemade pasta you can get. Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil is harvested exclusively from Calabria, and you can get a beautiful mix of Mediterranean Olives (Calcidica Sweet & Salted, Nocellara del Belice) as well. The Skinny Italian Balsamic Ketchup is perfect for marinating the flank steak recipe in my “Fabulicious! On the Grill” and it’s great on hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken nuggets… once you try Balsamic Ketchup, you’ll never go back to regular! We also have a home-style fresh marinara sauce that you can use instead of the Quickie Sauce in all of my recipes. Go to to order some today!

You can get my four cookbooks in your local bookstore or on Amazon.

Skinny Italian is all super healthy Mediterranean diet food and can help you lose weight:

Fabulicious! is my favorite family recipes, great for entertaining company:

Fabulicious! Fast & Fit are all low-fat, super-easy recipes with 10 ingredients or less that go from start to stove in less than 30 minutes:

And Fabulicious! On the Grill are my favorite outdoor entertaining recipes:

Thank you all so much for your support! It means the world to me!

NOTE:  Kinda amazing dat DonCaro is takin’ the time out to write ANYTHING… she should be scouring the intrawebby for her friends!


Hello and happy Sunday! Summer is officially over, everyone is in work mode, the kids are back to school, and fall is in the air. I love it!

We’re finally back from Arizona, and everyone is getting back to work. Teresa has a new food line, Melissa took her singing career to another level, Kathy’s cannoli make their way into New York City, and Jacqueline conquers her fear of public speaking while raising Autism awareness. As for me, all you got to see was me suffering from another migraine. One of these days I hope to finally be rid of them! I’ve had them since I was eight years old. I think I deserve to be migraine free at this point in my life, keeping my fingers crossed.   NOTE:  DonCaro is a dolt.  Imitrex now comes in pill form.  However, it is important to find the reason for the migraines… and DonCaro simply follows those reasons around!

I enjoyed watching all of the husbands support their wives in their endeavors. They were cute, weren’t they? Joe Giudice proudly showed the two mom’s Teresa’s showroom, Joe Gorga praised Melissa’s talent to her new manager, Richie was running around in circles trying to get Kathy to Dylan’s on time, Chris gave Jacqueline hugs and pep talks right up to the very minute she spoke, and even my Albert made sure I was comfortable with a back rub and an ice pack for my headache. They drive us crazy, but when we need them, they’re right by our sides, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.   NOTE:  Oh, they were so cute… BLEEEECH!!

The conversation between Rosie and Joe was unbelievable. Is it just me or are those two hilarious together? I’m thrilled to know that Rosie took her lessons from Mirival home with her and applied them to her everyday life. Arizona was a life changing experience for her and listening to Rosie tell Joe that she is finally comfortable in her own skin was awesome. Now if someone would just tell them that Joe does not have eggs, all will be right with the world.

All in all I think we finally managed to have a positive episode with everyone moving forward with good intentions. It wasn’t perfect, there were a couple of little bumps, but I’m choosing to ignore them for now. I’ve decided to take the glass is half full approach with this group.

As always, I thank you so much for watching. I’ll see you all next week!

P.S. Check out my new website and don’t forget to listen to our Manzo family weekly podcast on iTunes! “Let Me Tell You Something” is free and fun!
 Follow us all on Twitter @carolinemanzo, @albiemanzo, @laurenmanzo, @chris_manzo, @cafface, @littletownnj, @blkbeverages, @thebrownstonenj.

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY Recap: Season Five, Episode Sixteen… “The Blonde Drops A Bombshell” By Sandi Duffy


rhonj cast

Season Five Episode Sixteen “The Blonde Drops A Bombshell”

by Sandi Duffy

Oh thank goodness.  They are done with Arizona.

Teresa is coming out with her own Skinny Italian food line.  I hope it’s better than that slop the Mangos tried peddling from the Brownstone.

Do any of the men on this show actually work besides Al?  They all sit around and talk all the time.

Chris and Jacqueline are milking their autism storyline.  Theft are doing something with that sludge they sell and Jacqueline is going to make a speech.  I wonder who HER ghostwriter is.

Kathy and Richie are doing something, but no one cares, so I’m not even going to bother to recap this part.

The Guidices and Gorgas are all having lunch together minus Father Gorga, who has kidney stones.  I don’t really like the new Joe Guidice, who has somehow been coerced or blackmailed into cooperating with the producer-induced story lines.

Teresa is at Jacqueline’s house to help her with her speech.  That’s like Forest Gump helping Corky from Life Goes On write a speech.

Joe Guidice and Rosie seem like BFFs this season.  I kind of like the Rosie/Joe dynamic, even if they both think that both men and women have eggs.  I think it’s safe to say that no one in this cast is going to find the cure for cancer.

Does Melissa just go around and sing her stupid song everywhere she goes?  How is this no talent getting to meet my boyfriend Justin Timberlakes manager?  Who is Melissa kidding?  She would sell her soul to the devil for a big recording career.

More Kathy and Richie.  I’m going to pee and get a snack.

A songwriter and producer comes to Melissa’s studio with “Justin Timberlakes manager”.  I would like to point out that with the magic of auto tune, I could sound just as bad as Melissa.



More Kathy and Richie.  Lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala.

Damnit!  I thought it was going to be a Caroline-free episode, and not only is it NOT Caroline-free episode, but we also get miserable Lauren.

Teresa takes a shot at Kathy by describing her cannolis as “edible”.

Jacqueline is on her way to her big speech.  She’s really nervous.  She’d probably be less nervous if there was a stripper pole in the room.

The women are idiots trying to play basketball in high heels instead of sneakers.

They only made $3000 at their event.  Hell, my late husbands friends, who aren’t on TV, raise more than that every year in a charity golf outing in my husbands name for pancreatic cancer research.

Joe and Melissa are out to dinner and se Penny out.  Melissa approaches Penny about the rumors.  Penny’s fake hair is horrid.  Penny outs Teresa as the source behind the rumors.

Next week on RHONJ…


Received this comment this morning from “ToAllSHReaders”:

I can confirm 100% that the PRODUCERS had Teresa invite Penny to the Milania Launch Party.

No Drama = No Show.

SH Readers,
Understand something:
• BravoTV and Sirens Media pay a lot of money for filming; you can bet your bottom dollar that everything to their wardrobe is planned.  

• There is a lot of manipulation that goes on as well. When you hear; “I heard this” and a name is not mentioned; it’s production.

I will digress at this point.

NOTE:    Bravo/Sirens/ANY  HWs ProductionCompany manipulating the “reality” of the HWs shows has been raised and discussed years ago on SH… beginning with the RHONJ producers planning “reality” with the cast!  (If you wish to read the expose from TWO years ago, please enter “Jacob Huddleston” in the SH search bar.)  We all know they plan the  phoniness and the manufacturing of story lines on the Bravo HWs franchises!  Ain’t nuthin’ new at SH…  This latest splicin’, dicin’ and throwin’ in voiceovers on the RHONJ is not a story… it’s BOOO-OO-RING.  yawn.

Thank you, “ToAllSHReaders”!!!   Whoever wrote this comment did not want to be identified; however, perhaps SH readers can take a guess as to the author!?
