In his own confessional, Joe blamed Melissa for the supposed changes not on her business, but on her reality TV gig.
“I call the celebrity the devil. The devil enters your soul and you forget who you really are, ”he said accusingly.

“I think you are too involved in the work,” he says. “You have to realize what happened to you.
“I feel so bad when you say that,” Melissa replied. “What did I do to you wrong?”
“You just changed,” he said. “You are just a little different.
