She was in no WAY threatened at that gathering. So, I accept the fact that this was nothing but pure scripting by Bravo. OK, it's what they do. But how stupid do they think we are?
The reactions of Jacqueline, Caroline, and Kathy were equally disingenuous and implausible. Over.The.Top. Goofy. It is totally obvious to me that they were all on the same page, and they memorized it. It's also obvious to me that Jacqueline, wimpy as she is, refused to attend the reunion because she was ashamed of taking part in the trumped up drama whose sole purpose what to humiliate Teresa.
I like Melissa . . . there I said it. Kathy too. They both seem sane.
In the bathroom, Teresa said to Melissa that HER reason for saying something to Melissa about Baldy saying Melissa had formerly worked for him at a "gentleman's club" was that she knew he was going to be going around saying it to other people. To which, Melissa said something to the effect of: "So what? My husband knows me. Who CARES what this guy says to other people?"
Teresa kept pushing the issue until Melissa said, "Let's call your brother right now." At which point, Teresa went straight through the roof and tried to stop her from calling. I believe Melissa said that if the guy said something about her, then maybe Joe would want to come and tell this guy where to go. Teresa tried to stop her. When THAT didn't work, she took off out of the bathroom looking for the guy, ostensibly to tell him off THEN about spouting off at the mouth about Melissa.
She knew she'd overplayed her hand.
Frankly, Melissa never struck me as calling Joe because she felt threatened. Melissa never struck me as being the sort of person that, if she really WANTED to say something --- be it to a man OR woman --- didn't have the balls to go ahead and say it. Again, I read her calling Joe as a result of her being pissed that Teresa KEPT on pushing the Baldy-and-what-he-said-to-her issue, even though Melissa TOLD her clearly: 1. I never worked as a stripper; I was a bartender and Joe knows that, and 2. So he's gonna talk? Who cares? Then, when she got tired of Teresa leaning on her, that's when the "Let's call your brother . . . " came out of her mouth.
And that's when Teresa ran, like she always does, because she KNEW her brother was going to show up, and she KNEW the $#!+ would well and truly hit the fan when he did.
AND OF COURSE BALDY WAS AMAZINGLY NOWHERE TO BE FOUND WHEN JOE DID SHOW UP.
Now, based on that fact alone, just who was it that came across as though they might've felt threatened? Melissa? Or Baldy?
No, Melissa was not threatened, and did not FEEL threatened, either. Melissa was pushed too far by Teresa and called Teresa's bluff by calling Joe. And yes, she DID tell Joe that she didn't know WHAT the guy was capable of or would do if she approached him herself. I clearly heard that come out of her mouth. But, Melissa is no wimp, either, and I think she just called Joe to get Teresa off her back and out of her face, in the first place.
And it worked.
Melissa joined the show with intentions of gaining some of the limelight Tre has. So Melissa should have learned that people who live in glass houses should not throw stones. The glass is shattering in their famewhoring faces and I for one could care less about her and that sad excuse for a man she has.
The notion that Tre is so completely ignorant, yet has enough sense to set up someone as supposedly bright as Melissa is laughable. I like Tre but omg she has a hard time reasoning out small things. Please Bravo,the fired producer and the less than popular cast members have the stench of this coming out their collective pores!
I love how Tre gets blamed for everything under the sun and yet clan Manzo can't seem to get called on any of their nonsense. There are a lot of sleuths out there about to bust this so called setup right out from under Bravos behind.
LET IT FLY FRIDAY!!! That DAMN Melissa Email! … WHO sent the email??? | STOOPID HOUSEWIVES
Apparently the Salon owners are telling all of Melissa's business
I find the most telling thing against Tre is that Kathy, Tre's own biological cousin, finds her the instigator. Some may say it's because Kathy wants to cash in on the show too, but I just don't get that feeling with Kathy.
Kathie's mouth is no prayer book. I have to give anything kathie says the side eye because of her foul mouth husband who seems to have a really over the top addiction to bashing Tre.
