Fifty Shades of Gorga – A Book Review

Fifty Shades of Gorga – a Book Review by NMD

AKA Love, Italian Style: The Secrets of my Hot Italian Marriage

Melissa Gorga must have been reading Fifty Shades of Grey when she penned Love, Italian Style: The Secrets of my Hot Italian Marriage.  For those of you that haven’t read the Fifty Shades Trilogy, it is a story about a damaged billionaire who entices a young innocent college student into his S&M lifestyle as his submissive.  He’s obsessive, demanding, jealous, and terrifying.  The student, Ana, is painfully naive, but bright and confident, and enters into his world step by step as he teaches her the ropes – so to speak.  She slowly learns to control his volatile temper, by sex.  Little by little she breaks down his barriers – and they have a more traditional relationship.

It comes as no surprise that Melissa Gorga, known for being a copycat, would draw heavily from this hugely popular series to romanticize her relationship with Joe Gorga.

Melissa and Joey have told the story of how they met a few times since they were cast on Housewives.  In this version, they are on separate vacations in Cancun and she catches his eye.  He learns from her friends that she’s from New Jersey and where she bartends.  He pursues her, and eventually she agrees to date him.  In short order she moves into his large home, and they become engaged then married.  The curious thing is the timeline they give in the book has this elapse over the period of 4 years (she was 21 when they met; 25 when they became engaged, which was supposedly six to twelve months later).

By coincidence or through inventive recreation, this almost parallels the Christian / Ana beginning.  After a chance meeting when Ana interviews him for a school newspaper, Christian pursues her, arranging “chance” encounters at her work, and school.  In short order she moves into his condo, and they become engaged.

Like the Christian Grey character, Joe is characterized as obsessive, jealous, and controlling

I love it when I walk into a room with Melissa and men stare at her.  They all want her, but they can’t have her.  She’s all mine!  (Joe Gorga)

This is a theme throughout the book.  When they go to parties Melissa’s not allowed to leave Joe’s side and talk to strangers.  She doesn’t travel without him.  He expects her to be waiting at the front door when he comes home from work.  When they were newlyweds and she was offered a teaching job, he asked her to work for his company so that he could control her schedule.

There are so many other parallels to Fifty Shades it’s laughable.

In Fifty Shades, Christian makes a big deal about Ana getting into shape so that she can keep up with him in the S&M room.  Melissa also touts the importance of being in shape to please her man in the bedroom.

To be a puttana (whore) in marriage, a woman needs to keep herself in shape.  She has to be seductive.  She needs to be willing to try new things for her husband’s pleasure and her own.  And most importantly, she must be available for sex.

Here’s another one from Melissa – she must have been reading Fifty Shades just before she wrote it.

Women fantasize about men doing different things to them, in different settings and in different outfits.  So it works out perfectly.  Men have that instinctual urge to dominate, and women, whether they realize it or not, want to submit.

This is the section of the book that had the reviewer from Jezzebel saying the book promoted marital rape.  I suspect with Fifty Shades being a best seller, they didn’t realize ripping it off would create such controversy.

Men, I know you think your woman isn’t the type who wants to be taken.  But trust me, she is.  Every woman wants to get her hair pulled once in a while.  If your wife says “no” turn her around and rip her clothes off.  She wants to be dominated.  Even if your wife is a tough, strong, businesswoman, who breaks balls all day long – especially in that case – when it’s just the two of you she wants to be dominated.  (Joey Gorga)

Christian Grey was unpredictable when it came to sex.  At times he was sweet and gentle.  Other times he was rough and on the edge of danger.  Looks like Joey wants us to think he’s just like that.

When Melissa gets into beds she rubs her hands together, and wonders, who’s Joe going to be tonight?  Is he going to (be) that guy who makes soft, sweet love to me, or is he going to rip my clothes off and throw me around the room?  I always keep her on her toes.  (Joey Gorga)

Even some of the smaller details are consistent with the book.  Melissa claims she sends naughty texts to Joe once or twice a week – not too naughty that she’d be embarrassed if he read them to someone else, but flirty.  In Fifty Shades Christian and Ana ‘s naughty flirty emails are a main part of their flirtation.

One of the criticisms of Fifty Shades is the horrific writing and reliance on clichés.  Melissa uses so many clichés in her book, she even mentions that she’s using them.  Of course she puts the Melissa twist on them.  My favorite one is:

Confidence comes from within.  Again, I know it sounds cliché, but these tired and true sayings really do have a meaning.  There is no way you can feel as good or as confident when you have hairy legs, are wearing no makeup, or haven’t been to the gym in weeks.

That’s right Melissa.  Confidence comes from within so you’d better make sure you shave your legs.

Another humorous section of the book is Joey Gorga trying to explain why he doesn’t lift a finger to help around the house:

Couples where the man does typical “feminine” chores have less sex.  I’ll tell you why.  When gender roles are confused, sexual roles are, too.  If he’s at the sink, then changing diapers, who throws down who in the bed?  In our marriage, Joe is always the man, doing masculine things.  (Except when he dresses like Snooki on Halloween).  I’m the woman, and I do the female things, including housework.

joe gorga snookijoegorgaSo if I understand Melissa correctly, a man who washes dishes may get gender confusion – but cross dressing isn’t a problem.  The extra hilarious thing is she wrote a whole section about women having to initiate sex (once out of every five times is fine) or your man will get sulky and think you don’t love him.  So maybe on those nights it would be okay if he did the dishes?

For those of you that are interested in the details, I’ve captured a few of the glaring contradictions or outright lies for your amusement.

Inconsistencies and Contradictions:

Timeline.  They met when she was 21.  He found her the next summer bartending – she was 23.  She moved in 6 weeks later, and they were engaged 5 months later – she was 25.  He dated his high school sweetheart for 10 years and was engaged – yet he was 26 when he first met Melissa.  Didn’t anyone proofread this?

Schedule.  Friday night is family night out in a restaurant.  Saturday night is date night in a restaurant.  Sunday is football and family home-cooked dinner.  During the week Joe works 14 hour days.  Yet she claims they have an open door policy and entertain all the time (when?).

Friends.  In Chapter One Melissa talks about having no friends after she made the varsity cheer squad.  Later in the book she says she’s had the same best friends since 2nd grade.

Sweating.  She makes a big deal about working out and sweating to stay healthy.  Didn’t she claim on the show she didn’t sweat in that scene with Kathy.

Speaking of Kathy – – Melissa talks about getting pregnant with Antonia right after they were married, which she doesn’t regret because they are such family oriented people.

Joe had been missing an extended family his whole life.  His parents came from Italy.  He didn’t have any cousins or aunts and uncles in New Jersey.  They were all back in the old country.

A little later in that section, Joe made a statement that was equally confusing:

I was convinced we were having a boy.  My sister had two girls {this is the time Antonia was born}.  Our cousins had girls.  I really wanted a boy.

Huh?  Last I checked your cousin had a boy and a girl.

She has a whole section about being a “cook in the kitchen.”  Since the book was based around her favorite saying – “lady in the parlor, whore in the bedroom and cook in the kitchen,” she couldn’t get around that part.  She does admit that her mother-in-law taught her how to cook, and claims that she loves to be in the kitchen.  That part must have been written before they filmed the segment at the retreat where Kathy and Teresa cooked, Caroline watched and whined, and Melissa drank.

More contradictions.

If the last five years of our nation’s history have taught me anything, it’s that you can’t live the highlife and spend every penny that comes in. (page 169).
Live as well as you can.  Buy the best car you can afford.  Stretch by buying a house in the nicest neighborhood with the best schools (page 168)
I went from a housewife who needed to go to my husband for money, to being out in the world, getting paycheck.
God knows, he’s never considered his money “his.”  He shared his home with me before we were married, and since then he’s supported me generously.
Every dollar that comes into this household belongs to all of us. Our money is “ours.”

So all in all, this book was worth the $7 I paid for it. There were only a few typos, it gave me some laughs, and filled up a rainy morning. My only real issue is I share what I learned with my husband, and he’s terrified to do the dishes ever again.

One more thing – I mentioned Fifty Shades is known for the horrific writing.  One example is the main character – Ana – “bites her lip” no less than 18 times.  Hmm – maybe that’s why Melissa is “biting” her finger in her photoshoot.



Happy Birthday Plainviewsue

    You are a very brave woman NMD. Thanks for taking one for the team. 🙂
    I would rather eat glass than read her “book.

  2. Laineylainey says:

    “It comes as no surprise that Melissa Gorga, known for being a copycat, would draw heavily from this hugely popular series to romanticize her relationship with Joe Gorga.”
    Thank you, NMD! The above quote is Mel and her book, in a nutshell. missusmc noticed and mentioned the parallel with her book and 50 SHADES. But, You took that parallel to a whole nutha level. Had no idea it was such a copy cat…Great review. Those problems with her timeline are so obvious. What a disrespect to the reader’s intelligence.

    I am taking my sweet time posting this….I don’t want to be first….waiting, waiting,…ok post.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Thank you NMD for biting the bullet. So by “writing” this book, Melissa obviously thought she would be the next E.L. James. That’s why she said this was her first “book.”

      Melissa tweeted that the blogger took what she wrote out of context. Looks like once again Melissa lied.

      I remember in season one, Teresa said that she cooked every night, except Friday night when the family went out for dinner. Oh Melissa, do you have one idea that is your own?

      I am glad she didn’t trash Teresa in the book. NMD, did she talk about how she was approached to join RHONJ? Did she mention Caroline or Jacqueline? Obviously, she forgot about Kathy. Kathy truly is the Jan Brady of this family.

    • missusmc says:

      Yep, I totally noticed the comparisons, but I’ve never actually read either book. Way to take one for the team, NMD! You’ve done what few would be willing to do 🙂

  3. TexasTart says:

    Happy Birthday Plainviewsue! 😀

  4. Sam says:

    Thanks for the great review, and for connecting the dots between Melissa’s book and Fifty Shades. Fascinating stuff!

  5. melthehound says:

    I didn’t want to be first either Lainey because, I don’t swing that way 😉

    “Men, I know you think your woman isn’t the type who wants to be taken. But trust me, she is. Every woman wants to get her hair pulled once in a while. If your wife says “no” turn her around and rip her clothes off. She wants to be dominated. Even if your wife is a tough, strong, businesswoman, who breaks balls all day long – especially in that case – when it’s just the two of you she wants to be dominated. (Joey Gorga)”

    Last I heard asshole, that was a good way of ending up in a prison cell and becoming someone else’s bitch. The women I have known were the type that like to be appreciated. Not lunged after with my dick wagging about and my tongue hanging out. They also appreciated having the dishes done once in awhile and dinner ready when They came home. I found they were more inclined to take care of me and my wants, if I looked after theirs as well. I doubt there is a woman here who would argue with that. If you are really the type, Joey, who believes it is okay to belittle and rape your wife, and she believes it too, I hope you are both okay with it when your daughter is living the same life, in a big expensive mausoleum. Impressive… puke.

    • Rebecca says:

      This is so disgusting… she’s just a total waste of space and air.

    • Laineylainey says:

      MTH – funny about not wanting to be first. 😀
      A favor: Please Try to remember how visual I am when you traverse into things that are “wagging and hanging”…still visualizing 😲😬😇👼🙈🙊👓🔎

    • tulsateacher says:

      I actually find it kind of sexy when my husband is doing “female” things and helping out around the house, especially if I don’t have to prompt him to do so! I do think that Melissa thought it would be cute if she tried to portray herself and Joe in a dominant/submissive relationship and really, if that’s what they have going and it works, good for them. The problem is this book is being marketed as an advice book and the title, “Love, Italian Style”, implies that this is somehow normal for those with Italian heritage and that is just offensive and stupid. If she just wanted to put out a memoir (inconsistencies and all!) then fine but she actually thinks that this “advice” would be well received and it’s backfired on her.

      • Powell says:

        Tulsateacher you make a great point. So why oh why did the publisher whose been doing this for a while & is suppose to tell the writer “this is an advice book, this is a memoir, this is fiction, etc publish it as an advice book? It looks to
        me that they are messing w/their rep more than they are helping Mel be a success.

        • tulsateacher says:

          Thanks Powell. Another thing that bothers me is there are so many excellent writers who can’t get a publishing deal and then we have this mess of a book. She’s been given all of this media hype (good or bad) and it’s just a horribly written mess. The publishing house (isn’t it St. Martin’s Press?) should be concerned about their reputation. It’s not just the content that’s bad and offensive; it’s also the poor writing skills. I read that first chapter when it was “leaked” and was actually taken aback by how horribly written it was.

    • lulu says:

      Jeff for future reference please forewarn us by stating do not eat or drink while reading my post. My poor dog has brown spots from me spitting coffee all over him. Even more pitiful he now needs a bath!! :). Rotflmao!!!

    • MTH,
      I agree! Women want to feel appreciated and treated with respect! Is Mel and Joey like the “rough stuff” that is their business, but to suggest that every woman who says “no” really means yes is a bit of a stretch! My book club read Fifty Shades of Grey last year and had a great time picking it apart and talking about how it kinda sorta maybe turned us on…yes, it was a “fun” read”, but no, I did not buy handcuffs or allow my husband to braid my hair! In our fantasies it may sound like fun but in real life I am willing to bet that the vast majority of women are not into being dominated! I would also go out on a limb to say that changing a diaper once in a while is a bigger turn on than six pack abs! Offering to load the dishwasher just might get you 7 minutes of excitement in the bed!
      Find it weird that she said HER book not like Tre’s because it was a BOOK and not filled recipes, but I read all of Tre’s and found them to be filled with fun little tidbits and I would be more apt to PURCHASE (yes, I got her’s from the library) her book over Mel’s. (Also read Caro’s book from the library, too!) At least Tre’s book would be opened more than once!
      Anyhoo…looking forward to the finale tonight! I might stay up late to watch! 🙂

      • melthehound says:

        I figured I wasn’t very far off in my assessment. I honestly couldn’t care less what people do in their own homes and don’t want people into what I do in mine. I haven’t written a book about it though and I doubt you have about your own ‘life’. I have never known the content of 50 Shades beyond reading a review of it over at Empress’ site. It is interesting that NMD drew the parallel between it and MeGo’s book. Either she copied the book for her own, or she models her own life after those characters.

  6. There’s a great blog that tears apart 50 shades as copying Twiglight “biting lip”……One of the criticisms of Fifty Shades is the horrific writing and reliance on clichés. Melissa uses so many clichés in her book, she even mentions that she’s using them. They all are one on the same.

  7. Nancy says:

    NIght, night all.

  8. chismosa says:

    NMD thanks for the review.
    And also for breaking down the stupid Christian Grey story. I heard that the Sylvia Day books are better ps.

    Where is this tiger in the bedroom and whatever in the kitchen crap ? That was in My Big Fat Greek Wedding too… uttered by the wonderful Lainy Kazan.
    Who originated that ????? I wonder

    Have a nice Sunday today not sure how many blogs will be out today !
    Too many shows tonight to emotionally prepare for


    Jill— belated happy birthday to your daughter

    • chismosa says:

      Oh HELLO…..

      Did anyone see what I posted the other day about whispers of Dina Downer Manzo possibly coming back? (Why does she still keep the Manzo name? Is she not divorced yet?)
      v- word …….. Upchuck

      Sorry not sure if anyone had seen that ……
      Ok ttfn

      • VV says:

        I don’t think Dina is coming back. I doubt it. Via tweets and interviews she has expressed that HWs shows are not something she’s interested in going back to doing….Unless Bravo made an offer she couldn’t refuse…💰💰💰💰💰💰

        • chismosa says:

          Yes and she’s not going to be married, maybe not make much in the divorce settlement, no more child payments for her daughter —- has a hamptons house right ? (Which I never understood if she’s from jersey, generally jersey goes to the ‘shore’ not hours and hours to the hamptons)

          HGTV is not renewed ? She may need the $$$$

          We’ll see 🙈👽 🙄

  9. Vegas Chick says:

    Happy Birthday Plainviewsue!!!!

    50 Shades of Gorga, lol. NMD, you made me snort my coffee.

    What happened to Famewhorgas? Gone. Poof!

  10. vilzvet says:

    Happy birthday to our lovely plainviewsue!! Great blog today, still can’t believe the turnouts this chick is getting, who ARE these people?! Let’s hope the bookings trail off soon.

  11. ladebra says:

    Happy Birthday PlainViewSue! 🎉🎉

    I am conflicted about posting this, but too excited about Revenge returning not to. BTW I read and there are some hints of what’s to come, so if you hate hate any sort of spoiler, please skip it.

    • Powell says:

      Ladebra I am so excited. The first 60 seconds there will be fireworks. I love it. 🙂
      I’m looking forward to Betrayal & Once Upon a Time which starts at 7est.

    • plainviewsue says:

      I never read spoilers. Love to be surprised. So much tv tonight. Once Upon A Time, Revenge, Good Wife, Homeland. Oh, and of course, the NJ finale & the Teresa & Joe sit down.

  12. BB says:

    Happy Birthday Plainviewsue! Hope it’s a great one!

  13. VV says:

    Here’s to you 🏆 ! Thank s for the recap and showing the outright lies and inconsistencies of the book.

    So, Mel confesses she is 21 when she met Joey. Did she also mention how old Joey was at the time? I think FW had an article saying he was 30 when they met. If you goggle his name there are conflicting dates.
    I found interesting she wasn’t specific about what family time meant. Is she talking about She, Joey and the kids? Is she talking about going to the Gorga Sr home? Is she talking about going to their mother? “I” always thought she added to the Gorga Sr lust of why we don’t like Melissa that she probably doesn’t allow Joey to visit his parents as often as his parents expect.

    Thanks for posting those pictures of Joey. They are from his first season on the show and is obvious he was much much smaller then.

    • VV says:

      NMD thanks for the “book review”. Why did I type recap?! ….Because I need more caffeine. ☕️☕️☕️

    • He was 26 in Cancun- she was 21. But she was 25 and he was 30 when they were engaged.

      Friday family night is Mel, Joey, and the kids going out to a kid-friendly restaurant. She has a whole section about getting along with her in-laws, but no specifics on when she sees them. And only the one mention of a “sister” by Joey.

  14. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. I just cracked up at your title NMD. “Fifty Shades of Gorga.”. She only wishes her book could be that well written, popular & turned into a movie. 🙂

  15. Back in 2000 I was twenty-six and took a vacation to Cancun. is how Joey starts his narrative.

    • “I was engaged at 20 to my high school girlfriend. I stayed with her 10 years. I wasn’t faithful.” (so if he was 26 now – he must have started dating this high school girlfriend when he was 14 or 15 to stay with her 10 years and be single by 26).

      • VV says:

        I’m telling FW had a blog with dates and timelines. I happen to trust Fame. The article states he was in his thirties if I recall correctly. If the story changes, there has to be a reason. Game took some blogs down. Not sure if the “how we met” blog was one of them. The age they we’re seems to change.

        • I remember that blog. Fame pointed out a whole bunch of inconsistencies in the various times they told the story. The ages were clear in the book. She was 21 in Cancun. He proposed on her 25th birthday. They only dated 6 weeks before she moved in and lived together 5 months before he proposed.

          One thing I didn’t mention in the recap/review. She agreed to date him and their first date was dinner at his 10,000 SF house. 5/6 weeks later he took her to Punta Cana on a family vacation with the Gorgas. When she got back her roommate had cleared out the place. Her other roommate needed to move out, so Joey let her move in. She never left.

          I do believe at love at first sight. He loved her at first sight. She loved his house at first sight when he finally got her to agree to a date.

  16. I know there are all sorts of “verified” sources about who’s in and who’s out for NJ and OC, but having been around the block a few times, there always is and most of the time it’s wrong. Last year it was reported that Jaq and Kathy were out and Dina was back. Funny – seems to be the same thing this year. Until Jaq let’s loose on twitter, I won’t believe it. Producers probably do this so they promise their soul to bring a good story line the next year.

    • chismosa says:

      Oh my apologies I didn’t remember that Dina was rumored last year. Last year was the year of the like 30 episodes it felt like.

      The premiere this season was first week of June so we only had about 4 months. Not bad i must say. Awful season just not bad ####s wise of how many episodes.
      Thanks for the blog NMD ! As always. Hugs

      • No need to apologize – I was mainly reacting to a certain blogger who is going on about how she has the scoop (a few days after I read it in other places) and it’s a for sure thing this time. Nothing seems to get settled until taping is halfway through.

        I’ve also heard Dina is on a tv show and another reality spin off. I think she’s shopping herself around.

  17. chismosa says:

    Oh God VV you are going to have a LOT of editing cuts and splices to look for tonight in the conversation between Joey and Tre. I just read something in a magazine, wish I could just post the pic of it— she says she’s sort of “sorry”, (not exactly) and that she listened to the wrong people ??? And she cries??

    Looks like tons of splices and dices. 🔪🔪🔪🔨🔨🔨📹📹🎤

  18. She doesn’t mention Jacqueline.

    She mentions Caroline in the section on her family. “I vividly remember confiding in Caroline Manzo about my fears {of being able to be a good mom and still be on the show}. She told me “You’re right to be afraid. You’re going to get really busy in a heartbeat. Traveling, going from place to place to promote the show. But you’re a wife and mother first.”

  19. About getting onto the show – she says – “For the record. Joe and I never called a producer. They found us. {singular to plural – who edited this?} If it had been the other way around we probably wouldn’t be on the show. If we’d shown any interest, we’d have been ignored.” Then she goes into an analogy about trying to lure a stray cat in gently.

    Sending emails to producers isn’t calling them I suppose – creative lying is the best I’ll give her for that one – and I’m being generous.

  20. Amalfi says:

    Omg. I love the title of your review. Thanks for taking the bullet.

  21. Amalfi says:

    Joey Gorga as Christian Grey. I am crying. Laughing.

  22. Mene Seela says:

    NMD I’ve been enjoying your review of Melissa’s “book”. It’s rather short isn’t it? Maybe pamphlet or collection of short stories is more appropiate.

    From your excerpts it sounds like the she dictated rather than wrote the book.

    • Amalfi says:

      From the free first chapter, it sounds as if Melissa is capable of writing drivel at a 3rd grade reading level all on her own. If she dictated it to someone capable, it would’ve been readable.

    • About one third of the “book’ is filled with advice on how to dress (let’s just say the tips don’t work for any of us that actually have to work in a professional job and don’t want to show off our naughty bits) slather on makeup (again not great tips for those of us that want to look professional and not like ho’s) and a whole bunch about how she became his submissive over time because it was easier than fighting. I may write a blog on those bits at some time – but I ran out of steam last night.

      • Mene Seela says:

        I still think Melissa wears the athletic cup in that family. Little Peter Poison probably gives her make-up tips.

        • cusi77 says:

          I think that a “tiny bit” of true of his Neanderthal of a husband behavior must be there… Reason for which she (allegedly) went with Jan to a Sushi Bar and had a quickie in the parking lot with her ex boyfriend.

  23. Shiny says:

    Happy Your Day (late, so celebrate today, too) PlainviewSue!

    NMD, that was a great service to all of us curious friends who would never want to read (or buy) that “book”.

    Their writing sounds like How Not to be Married Happily advice. What real woman would put up with such an idiot man or encourage that behavior? Of course, I wouldn’t have married such a neanderthal no matter how big his house was. If my fabulous husband of 32 years ever tried any of that hogwash, we’d be in counseling the next day followed by a divorce if he didn’t return to being a respectful loving life partner.

    Hasn’t she ever heard that a porn calendar for real woman is photos of well-dressed men doing housework?

  24. Overit says:

    Wow!!!! Blown away NMD!!! Great reading!!!! I def wasn’t totally buying the whole “Melissa as submissive wife” thing and wondered what her angle was. It totally makes sense that she is into the 50 shades books and wants this as her image too! Thanks for connecting the dots for us! 🙂

  25. KTinCT says:

    Happy Birthday, Plainviewsue 🙂

  26. cusi77 says:

    NMD_ What a magnificent Blog! I have to read 50 shades of grey- even if it is another shade from another author. I so laughed of the sexy and “masculine” husband of MelGo always dressing like a girl! That woman is delusional and a liar… Good thing is not my SIL!!!

    Thank you for reading for all of us and making a list of all her inconsistencies.

    I just want to know how many hours has her day… and his! Him working 14 hours a day Bwahahah! No way Jose!

    Good Afternoon Everyone! Happy Birthday Plainviewsue! Thank you NMD for an excellent review of Mel’s book. What a bunch of crap. Stupid people. “Karma” not “Comma”. Really.

    Happy Birthday PlainViewSue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nmd awesome job on the review!!!! Of course Ms unoriginal had to copy “50 shades” book. That’s her MO wonder if she’s embarrassed? Surely she is not oblivious to amazon reviews? Twitter? Etc.

    Dilemma Dilemma… RHONJ finale, or The Amazing Race opening day. Which do you want in an official recap? I am not doing both tonight…….. Same with the next two weeks while the reunion of this shitfest plays out.

      Well, given that they don’t repeat The Amazing Race like the do the Housewife shows, it’s an easy choice for me!

      • Sam says:

        I’m an idiot who needs more caffeine today! I thought you were asking about which would you rather watch, not which would you rather have recapped. But my answer still works: I’d prefer a recap of RH because I’ll be watching The Amazing Race when it airs.

      I would get the one I dreaded the most out of the way first. I think I know which one that is.

    Danielle Staub wouldn’t retweet this if it wasn’t true.

    @daniellestaub: I suspect it was #Janax feeding false intel to @daniellestaub abt @dinamanzo. That’s why Jac attacked Dina at table flipping dinner #RHONJ

      I will not be watching Bravo anymore.

      I am watching the reruns and watching these pair of Gorga morons trying to find the truth in the wrong place… Why they didn’t got JAN that night of Milania’s Hair Care IF she was saying I AM WITNESS of your cheating! Does not make sense!

    Diva RHONJ ends tonight and we are still waiting for your “Butchy” story about Melissa. SPILL DIVA!!! SPILL!!!!

    Take this with a grain of salt* I will find IF this really happened in FaceBook, The Blog is “All thing House wives”

    We saw Melissa Gorga’s old friend, Jan DeDolce, on Sunday’s Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Jan dropped a bomb! She claimed she was with Melissa when Melissa met her ex-boyfriend in the parking lot of a Sushi restaurant and allegedly cheated on her her husband, Joe Gorga. Jan also had a lot to say about Melissa and Bravo on her Facebook page as the show was airing.

    “Lies lies and more lies!!! I was begged to go there. This gets better and better!!! Own ur sh*t people!!!!!” Jan wrote on her Facebook when the confrontation between her and Melissa aired. “The best part is she went there to confront me And when i asked if she had something to say she responds NO!!!!,” Jan said in a comment on her Facebook post. “nd anyone who Knws Melissa can clearly see she was lying and sh*tting her pants. ( btw Melissa u need to hire a new acting coach cuz ur waaaay to transparent). It’s funny how she calls me the “backstabber” but she’s the one who pulls me into this so she can have a god dam storyline. Cuz we all Knw she’s NOTHING going on w out this. And Melissa should I tell the real story how u got on the show??? U back stabbed ur own family so u can have ur “5min of fame”. This is actually comical now!!!!

    “Thank u Tommy and yes Ann alot of it is phony and fake and there was alot Of things that were edited and spliced,” Jan said in a reply to her Facebook friends. “As far as my comment goes yes it was necessary. Unfortunately there are alot things behind the scenes that’s led up to this that not everyone Knws about. None of this was supposed to go down this way. If i can go back and rewind I WOULD HAVE NEVER OF DONE IT. But i will defend myself when needed. And I agree let’s move on. And to answer ur question Candice NO I didn’t do penny’s hair and make up!!!!”
