Melissa Gorga Needs to Kiss Teresa’s Behind if She Wants Peace

melissa gorgaWhen Joe Gorga told Melissa Gorga that his parents view her as the devil, The Real Housewives of New Jersey audience recoiled in horror. It's not because the words were so harsh, but because it was hard and fast evidence that Teresa Giudice's plan had worked. She'd somehow managed to turn her parents against their daughter-in-law -- the ultimate power play in any family, but especially a "tick as teives" Italian brood from northern New Jersey.

Had we underestimated Teresa's power? Her prior attempts at shaming Melissa had epically backfired -- the Porsche fashion show set-up was more obvious than Joe Giudice's drinking problem -- we weren't quite sure that Tre could do anything stealthily, anything under the radar, anything that could actually hurt Melissa.

Leave it to Teresa to drag her parents into the drama and take her own family down with an inside job. Stealth at its best.

Melissa blogged on Bravo that things are way better with her in-laws now, explaining that Joe and Teresa's parents were only getting one side of the story, the bad side, and that they now know that their marriage isn't as horrible as Teresa makes it seem.

But Melissa learned a valuable lesson -- if she wants to have her in-laws' respect, she has to be kind to Teresa, or at least make up with her. Teresa's evil enough to try and pit her parents against her brother and it's up to Melissa to make nice.

Frankly, though, it probably isn't worth it.

What do you think?

Maybe we don't know everything that is going on. Joe was right when he told her that they view her as the devil. And one of the reasons is because what she tweets and says. Of course Teresa is going to say something. And I dot believe Teresa was smart enough for that set up. I think and still relieve it was Kim D and Jacqueline. Jacqueline and Melissa are not innocent.

Melissa is the one who is manipulative. Teresa, bless her heart is really not that smart.

On a different note, was anybody else stunned when Joe Gorga defended his sister and gave Melissa a "talking to" about saying mean stuff about Teresa on this recent episode? I was kind of shocked because Teresa NEVER defends her brother when her husband Joe talks smack about Melissa.

Do you really think Teresa should defend that little pussy?  Hell no, he told her she was dead to him.  As far as I'm concern Meho is evil, evil and will stop at nothing to get what she wants.  Hopefully everyone sees her for what she is.  Look at what she is doing to her dead fathers reputation.  She threw him under the bus for $.  She is a witch.  Look at her.

   I'm sure Teresa's parents watch the show and have decided for themselves.People cannot turn people against someone.

Who cares.  If parents can't make their own decisions based on what they've seen on TV, the eff them.
