Joy Behar Slams The Real Housewives For Having No Talent And Making Music

August 4, 2012 |By Continue Reading

The View’s Joy Behar recently had a few words for fellow housewives such as Gretchen Rossi, Melissa Gorga, and Kim Zolciak. As most of you know, since appearing on the show, those specific housewives have attempted to make a music career and Joy believes that’s just sad!

Joy says, “Every time a ‘Housewife’ releases a CD, a little something in me dies. I have to admit it. Because it’s like, these poeple who have no talent who don’t really work for it, they get all this money, you have to admit it, it’s annoying. So when they’re off television, good.”

Do you agree with Joy?!

I agree with Daisy, Kandi Buress is the only truly talented & accomplished singer & song writer. I also agree Kim’s first song was kinda fun & I really like her, but please Kim, no more. As for the rest, Luann, Melissa & Gretchen….UGH!

What irritates me is the fact that, with the other housewives, they, at least, started the show and waited a bit before trying to market other things! Melissa got on the show, and by the 3rd, I think, episode, she’s throwing the singing thing in our faces! She didn’t even give the viewers a chance to get to know her first, before shoving the popstar crap down our throats!!
Well, that’s ONE of the MANY things that irritate me, about her! LOL!

I feel so strongly about this, that I have to post this here to….. Kim D. and Penny would be excellent replacements for Kathy and Melissa!! Kim D. takes no crap and from what I gather, Penny doesn’t either. I learned a little bit about Penny and I have to admit, this woman has a golden heart and an iron fist. Penny was a special needs teacher. Nowadays, she has her own salon but every tuesday, she gives haircuts to people with special needs. She is still in touch with the children (now adults) she taught. They love her. Penny… Read more »

As much as Melissa makes me ill because she “whored” her way on the show just like she did to land her mini man and as much as I want to see her get the ax, If BRAVO has the good sense to Put penny on then they HAVE to keep MeHo on also so that Penny can finally tell the viewers all about MeHo and her “Prostitution Whore” past. Penny would not be as relevant if she “replaced” MeHo. Penny and MeHo would be the main story line and MeHo’s worst nightmare. Please BRAVO, Bring Penny and her husband… Read more »

I am a big Teresa Fan, but I don’t think Penny and Johnny should be on the show. I know people who are related to them and they told me that Penny lost her salon. I heard other things but out of respect for the family, I will keep it to myself. Trust me , Pen and John live in a glass house and the Gorga will be throwing a lot of stones.

NA…. Okay Samantha! Melissa isn’t that damned smart. All she knows is how to spread her legs, which she seems to do plenty of that on television, so I hate to see what she’s like off camera. She’s trash. Teresa can say Melissa is family, but as far as I’m concerned, Melissa is not blood, she’s water. Sewer water. I think Teresa should drop the family thing with Melissa and put Melissa in her place. Melissa is PURE TRASH!

I agree. These housewives weren’t doing anything with their lives than suddenly, they were chosen for a reality show and All Of A Sudden, “I know! I wanna be an astronaut! No experience necessary. What really gets me are the viewers who actually buy their junk. If the viewers didn’t buy it, these women wouldn’t be selling it. So far, Teresa is the only one who made sense with a cookbook, so I do respect her for that. Then of course, Yes I do Like Teresa, but she to is getting carried away. Wine and Singing.

She really does believe that this pathetic attempt as a singer is going to happen. She’s past her prime for this pop star thing, she has no talent except to know what to do to get a… Read more »

In a different post someone said HW bought twitter followers. I wouldn’t be surprised if they actually had ppl buy their stupid, ridiculous, obnoxious, auto-tuned, and just not that good, songs instead. Seriously….I wouldn’t ever even consider buying any HW song. Ever. Even if they paid me….lol

Twittergate: http://terryaley.com/?p=6649 Melissa Gorga’s Twitter data also looks suspicious. Melissa’s husband Joe Gorga — He steadily gained exactly 101 followers a day through Feb., then it dropped to exactly 50 followers a day until April, then he gained exactly 261 followers a day for a few weeks. Kathy Wakile gained exactly 855 new Twitter followers a day in Feb. and March, then dropped to exactly 183 Twitter followers a day in April (in other words, she was doing WAY better before the new season of the Real Housewives of NJ started!)

Kandi admitted Kim’s Tardy……. Song helped her career which must have stalled.

Even with talent, you come and go. Mostly go.

Look at the Jacksons, if you can.

Singing @ local fairs. They have talent but no spark

Plus, they are always looking for the easy way to make $$$$$.

Yes, she did. I believe it opened up opportunities in the Reality TV industry for her. It also helped her get a spin off. However, I don’t think she is taken as seriously in the music industry for working and touring with Kim. Everyon knows that Kim can not sing without that auto tune. Real singers will pick up the mic at the drop of a dime and start blowing out a tune. Not look back to see if the equipment is in place before they can open their mouths.

I agree its like they get on reality shows and start thinking they are JLo. its not gonna happen. clearly they know that one day they will get their walking papers and wont have nothing to show for it. but singing is not for none of the housewives…. they all suck! they should stick to making wines and cookbooks that seems to work out for them… or they can do a tubberware line or some cleaning products.

Kandi is the only HW that can claim to a recording artist. She writes, produces and records, not only for herself but major artist as well such as usher,tlc, celine dione, and even whitney houston. Kandi has won grammies. Those other 3 need prayer. You Kandi is the real deal she wrote and produced Kim Z a minor hit and made her sound decent. Melissa should call kandi,she may take pity and help her.

Kandi is the only one that has earned the right to say she is a singer/recording artist etc. She worked damn hard for it.

You know I don’t completely agree….let me explain, in Melissa’s case she has an ok voice. My big problem with her is she isn’t 21 anymore, stop acting like some young tramp Melissa!. put out a cd if you want but your a mommy in her 30’s stop trying to be Madonna. That being said how sad it would be if we didn’t have the Countess’ music to make fun of. I can’t tell you how much that crud has made me laugh when I was a little blue. Thanks for that Countess!.

Melissa has lost her mind.. she has NO clue who her audience is. The people shes putting on these outfits for and trying to sing to should be her fans… which are VIEWERS in the age range of 30-60 not 15-25 lol! She is so DUMB!

Actually, I think she does know who her audience is: she won’t rest until she has played every gay bar/club, hit every grocery store where she can sign her vodka bottles, and restaurants where she can greatly overcharge for a spagetti dinner/personal appearance – Joey won’t let her quit until his last dime is gone because HE LIVES for all that attention as much as she does.

No Countess LuAnus does take her singing seriously and no more so than when she sang with Natalie Cole. Now if she needed a clue that she couldn’t sing, that should of been her CLUE! Another time Countess LuAnus thought she was all that was when she sang for Jilted Zarin at her birthday soiree and made a complete fool of herself. My ears bled after listening to her. smh lolol

Kim was not just having fun, she really thinks she can sing and that has been a long time dream of hers. But, she wants everything handed to her on a silver platter. She refuses to work hard at anything except finding rich men to take care of her. She won’t practice sing, dancing, or even work out. She wants the easy way constantly.
