My Darling BEAUTIFUL Niece

There were another million crazy hurtful untrue stories about me this week and I ignore them all, but one I can't ignore. Again, Melissa is using our children in public, telling lies about them, to try and hurt me. Please Melissa, say whatever you want about me, but leave innocent children out of this!

I'm not even talking about her ridiculous claim that she's leaving her "dream house" because she doesn't want her kids to go to school with my kids. Our kids are all in school now and they don't go to the same school already. She can stay in her dream house. We all know that's not the issue...

But while I can protect my own kids from her lies and keep telling them that their uncle and aunt love them, I don't have any access to my own niece and nephews anymore. Someday Antonia will be old enough to make her own decisions and hopefully I'll have a relationship with her and her brothers then, but I have to answer the INSANE LIE that I ever, ever said anything mean about Antonia. Someday when Antonia is able to Google her own name, she'll find the evil story her mother told to a magazine about me calling her "ugly" (I can only pray Melissa's words were taken out of context by the magazine and I hope Melissa sets the record straight with Antonia privately, even though she didn't publicly) but I want Antonia to also see my response: it's absolutely NOT TRUE. I adore you Antonia, and I adore Gino and Joey. You are my blood. You are Gorgas. You are beautiful inside and out! Zia Teresa will always, ALWAYS love you and always be here for you with open arms. My children love you as well. They always treated you like their own sister growing up since you didn't have any. I hope one day you'll be able to hang out again.

And Antonia, don't ever, ever let anyone tell you you are anything but BEAUTIFUL! Know how I know? Know how everyone knows this horrible story about me calling you "ugly" isn't true? Because you look just like me when I was a kid! To be honest, you look almost more like me than my own daughters. You are like a daughter to me and will always be in my heart. I love you Antonia! xx
