Hi Tre! I too am upset with Bravo. They never post my comments! Anyhoo, I love you and Caroline. I love you because of your wild and craziness and I love Caroline because she is a straight shooter and that’s kinda how I am. I could tell Joe was sick at Christmas, especially after Gia got sick. I figured they had a bug. And some people, even me, might have thought he was being a bit of a scrooge because he was laying on the couch videotaping and not looking, but that’s real life. That’s what people need to realize. I think Joe is real. He may say comments that might not be so good but as reality stars you shouldn’t be playing a part because a camera is there, you should be yourself right? Sometimes we say mean things because we are mad at someone. I am glad that you owned up to him saying that though because sometimes you sweep things under the rug. Just stay real!
The whole thing with Kathy and Christmas Eve: Do I think Kathy was trying to tear your brother away from you? I don’t really know, but your brother should have a mind of his own and say “this is where we always are for Christmas and this is where we are going to stay.” The thing is you can’t just change how you feel overnight after you’ve been fighting with someone. It takes time. So hopefully he will start feeling more comfortable and not do that again. I do understand how you feel though especially after cooking all day. They could’ve at least let you know ahead of time they weren’t staying. And I do agree with Joe in that he should’ve gone to Kathy’s first and then come be with his family for dinner.
Now onto Melissa. I do agree with you that alot of times her actions don’t match her words. She acts like the good cop but there’s no doubt she puts the bug in Joe’s ear. One thing I would like to know? They have said several times that “Teresa has changed and she’s fake” talking about your fame no doubt. Anybody that is going to become famous is going to change. Then why would they thrust themselves into this world? I know this was filmed almost a year ago so if she doesn’t understand today how you are as a person then I just don’t get it. If I were you I’d bring that up to them. Love you, keep being real!
