RHONJ Former Producer Says Outsiders Were Involved in Setting Up Strippergate

September 25, 2012

The producers invited Angelo, to the Posche Fashion Show because they needed a big drama to lead into the reunion, a hook. The people who connected Angelo with the producers of the show were not part of the cast. The cast are angry with each other because of what they were being fed by the producers, who were only trying to up the drama.

Angelo actually went and approached the table before his interaction with Melissa and was stopped by security at the table and turned away. Melissa saw him at this point. She didn’t want to let on she knew in front of the cameras, but she texted her husband under the table to come to the fashion show and let him know what was going on, and she texted one of the producers who let her in on what was going to happen and who was coming over to say hello.

A producer texted all the wives, except Teresa, and told them why Angelo was there and that Angelo had told Teresa at an earlier time that Melissa was a stripper and he was there to embarrass her. To avoid getting their conversation on camera, the woman all texted each other under the table. The other cast were angry with Teresa for not letting Melissa know what was going to happen, but she was told not to by producers because they wanted a ‘reaction shot’ from Melissa — so either way, Teresa lost out.

Teresa was told by the producer to discuss with Melissa who Angelo said he is, but she refused to do it until pushed by Melissa. Melissa then made a call in the bathroom to her husband to tell him about the situation, and he told her he was on his way. That phone call was faked: he was already aware of the situation from her texts earlier and was actually just next door. Melissa knew who Angelo was, and he is who he says he is.

- Former RHONJ Post Production Supervisor, September 17, 2012

Fame-Whorgas received more from its source who is related to a former post production supervisor for the RHONJ. The source is still editing the transcript, but here is the section related to the Posche Fashion Show.

A: “(edited*****************************) at the Posche fashion show.”

Q: “I actually haven’t seen the episode. I know the basics of what happened, but it hasn’t leaked.”

A: “Well, it hasn’t screened yet but (this interview was conducted on 17/09/2012).

Q: “Sorry, can you just clear up who invited the man who outs Melissa as a stripper?”

A: “Angelo, he was invited by the producers. He doesn’t say she was a stripper, just that she worked for him at a gentlemen’s club. Cat and Caroline (producers Cat Rodriguez and Caroline Self) needed the season to go out with a dramatic ending because they knew without the drama the audience wouldn’t have a hook to go into the reunion, and they were getting pressure from the network. I mean, the reunions are always the highest rated shows of the season anyway. It was after Andy started to have more input in the series once again, after seeing disappointing and confusing early footage, that Cat started getting worried about her job, so she knew she needed to bring the drama.”

Q: “Wait, so the producers invited him because they needed…”

A: “A big drama to lead into the reunion, a hook.”

Q: “But you said earlier that the season is planned, that there is a basic structure and plan; so if there was a plan, wouldn’t they already have a big finale planned? And did everyone know what was going to happen?”

A: “No, the only cast member to know about Angelo before the evening was Teresa and that is because she meets him at the salon. Melissa knew that someone from her past wanted to say hello to her and that was all. The original plan for the finale was that they (the producers) were hoping on Danielle or Kim G to be there: they pretty much begged them to attend the fashion show. The dramatic end for the season was supposed to be Danielle confronting Melissa about getting in contact with her behind Teresa’s back, but Danielle refused to attend. So the next plan was to have Kim G make an appearance and attack Teresa about comments made in the media about her, but she refused as well. Then Jacqueline was asked by the producers to attack Teresa over comments she had made on Twitter about her daughter, but Jacqueline refused. All scenarios had Teresa as the sympathetic character.

Q: “So who connected Angelo with the producers of the show?”

A: “That was organised by people who are not part of the cast. You have to remember, there are so many more players in these shows than you see on screen.”

Q: “Did Melissa know she was going to be outed as a dancer?”

A: “No, but she was made aware that someone from her past wanted to say hello and we were to film her reaction to that. Angelo was kept away from the ladies on purpose so that Melissa wouldn’t see him until the right moment, but Angelo actually went and approached the table before his interaction with Melissa and was stopped by security at the table and turned away. Melissa saw him at this point.

Q: “And she didn’t do anything?”

A: (abridged due to privacy of source) “Well, I don’t think she wanted to let on she knew in front of the cameras, but she texted her husband under the table to come to the fashion show and let him know what was going on, and she texted one of the producers who let her in on what was going to happen and who was coming over to say hello. Shortly after that Angelo enters, says hello to Melissa, then says hello to Teresa: that was intentional (his hello to Teresa) to show the other ladies that he had met her before, but that backfires because she plays it off as a friendly hello and he then leaves the scene. It was at this point Teresa realises she is being set up to take the fall for bringing Angelo to the fashion show, so she confronts one of the producers.

Q: “So why didn’t Melissa just deny recognising who Angelo was after he left the table?”

A: “She couldn’t because she suspected Teresa was involved in the storyline somehow, so she knew she couldn’t lie.”

(edited – in regards to the bathroom scene)

A: “Teresa is told by the producer to discuss with Melissa who Angelo says he is, but she refuses to do it until pushed by Melissa. Melissa then makes a call in the bathroom to her husband to tell him about the situation, and he tells her he is on his way. That phone call was faked: he was already aware of the situation from her texts earlier and was actually just next door.”

Q: “Did Melissa know who Angelo was, did she recognise him? And is he who he says he is?”

A: “Yes she did know who he was; and yes, he is. He went through checks before appearing on the show. We don’t just put microphones on anyone and say ‘go nuts’. We checked with the owner of the establishment if Angelo was who he said he was, and if Melissa worked there, as well as numerous other checks.

(edited) ON THE FASHION SHOW

“The Posche show was advertised as having the cast of RHONJ there, so in that situation you get everyone who wants to be cast on the show up and try and get noticed by the cameras. It’s a nightmare because the reality of the situation becomes too fake and dramatic as every woman wants to get in on the drama to have her 15 minutes, or even better, get noticed by a producer. We had a lot of that happening this night: suddenly everyone who had ever worked with Melissa happened to be there and so did past friends, old roommates, the list went on and on. Everyone knew she was a dancer and it was no big deal — all of this was edited out.”

Q: “Why did Angelo leave?”

A: “The producers told him to leave because Joe Gorga was texting (name removed crew), asking him what the hell was going on and that he was on his way to the fashion show.”

Q: “If the Angelo part was producer influenced, then why does the cast hate each other so much; why was everyone so angry?”

A: “Because of what they were being fed by the producers, who were only trying to up the drama. (name removed – producer) texted all the wives, except Teresa, and told them why Angelo was there and that Angelo had told Teresa at an earlier time that Melissa was a stripper and he was there to embarrass her. To avoid getting their conversation on camera, the woman all texted each other under the table. [Section removed by source to protect privacy.] The other cast were angry with Teresa for not letting Melissa know what was going to happen, but she was told not to by producers because they wanted a ‘reaction shot’ from Melissa — so either way, Teresa lost out.

Q: “It doesn’t seem normal to not talk to your sister for a year because of such a trivial thing; there must be more to it?”

A: “Of course, I mean you won’t see it (the media blitz, because I am overseas) but there’s been interviews and leaked stories to the press where they go after each other, attacks on twitter, on each others fans — they have sold each other out for stories — so, yes, there is more too it but the fact that Joe thought his sister would rather listen to producers and shut her mouth than make Melissa aware that she was about to be outed as a dancer on television. Also, Season 3 was screening and you have to remember they lived one experience, then 8 months down the track they have to relive that moment again, but with everyone’s opinion added to the mix — it’s hard for anyone, let alone a family that already had problems.

Q: “So what are we going to see in the final edit of the finale of RHONJ then.”

A: “Teresa and Kim D will get the blame for Angelo being at the fashion show. Angelo has several conversations with female guests and a conversation with producers that gets edited into one conversation that implicates Teresa and Kim D in setting up Melissa.The truth is, Angelo was just trying to impress these other guests (by saying) that he was part of the show and had filmed with Teresa earlier in the day. They (the producers) got lucky: he outright lies to impress a woman and says to her that he is a vital part of the finale and was asked to be there by the producers; and that audio track is what is heavily edited and used to incriminate Teresa.”

(edited out)

The Napa Trip

Q: “But they all seemed to be getting along in Napa?”

A: “For the cameras, yes.”

Q: “Oh, so the whole Napa trip was a put on?”

A: “They all decided to put the past behind them for the sake of making the trip bearable because they all had to be there, but no one was happy about going on the trip — they all just grinned and bear it.

Q: “So, do you think Teresa and Melissa were wanting to put the past behind them and be a family at any point in season 3 or 4, or was it all a put on?”

A: “No, I think, at times, they were both wanting to put the past behind them, but when one was ready to, the other wasn’t, so they butted heads a lot.”

“Andy Cohen does play a role in the editing process. He has said so directly in interviews. With that said, overall Cat Rodriguez [@yourfriendkitty] and Caroline Self [@carolineself] have the most editing power. They are the executive producers of Season 3 and Season 4 of #RHONJ. They work on location and off location. They send the editors what footage to use as well as tell them what to keep in and what to cut out. Caroline Self is tight with the Manzos while Cat Rodriguez is tight with the Gorgas and Wakiles. Cat edited @PDKhair as well as multiple ex-coworkers of Melissa’s, who were present at the salon and fashion show, completely out of the two-part finale. Their interactions made the Angelo incident look g-rated. Obviously that move was deliberate. Furthermore, Cat held Penny back from defending Kim when Joe Gorga called Kim a drug addict, a cunt and went to punch her. Even worse, as you will see in the finale, Cat completely butchered the conversation Angelo had with a friend at the bar to make it appear as though Teresa masterminded everything. The unprofessionalism of Cat Rodriguez and Caroline Self is disgusting. In this economy, why are these the type of people who have employment? Only a network like @BravoTV would believe that their viewers are so incompetent that they wouldn’t see past the blatant bias.” – Will Love, September 18, 2012, Twitter

    Just as I thought. The one big, unanswered question is why did Angelo say what he said? I know from reading Johnny the Greek’s tweets that he claims that Angelo’s statement was edited so the meaning of his statement was completely changed. Does your source have a comment on that?

    • September 25, 2012 at 11:33 AM | #2

      This interview was conducted on September 17, 2012, before the final episode aired so the interviewer wouldn’t have known to ask that question. And the source hadn’t actually seen the final cut of the episode to even know those subtitles would be there.

        • September 25, 2012 at 6:06 PM | #4

          I doubt it. The source is still transcribing the tape from the interview. The story is from another country, and it a piece on the reality of reality TV, so it isn’t just about the RHONJ:

          “I was asked by my country’s main news website to write a piece on the reality of reality television. My cousin worked on RHONJ, so I asked for an interview.

          I’m just receiving the parts about the RHONJ.

      Angelo says, “Teresa knew about it too.” Teresa knew about Melissa dancing because of her interaction with him at the salon.

      Angelo says, “Johnny calls and says Kim and Teresa want to blow the whistle on her.”
      My bet is that Johnny lied to Angelo about Teresa being a part of it or Kim lied to Johnny about Teresa being a part of it.

      Angelo says, “They had me do this thing.”
      Due to editing, they could refer to Kim&Johnny, Bravo producers, or a combination.

      Still nothing to implicate Teresa.

      • September 25, 2012 at 6:09 PM | #6

        From Teresa’s blog just published on Bravo:

        “Why did I go to the new salon with Kim D? Because she asked me to go with her. And it was just for make-up, not hair. And it wasn’t just some random place. They were a major new sponsor of Kim’s fashion show as you could see from their name on the step-and-repeat, Chateau Allure Salon. Kim’s fashion show raises thousands of dollars every year for charity, and I support it. So do all the other ‘Wives. I know Melissa now calls it a “trashy party,” but that’s only since she started supporting a competing local fashion show. And Melissa seemed pretty excited when Kim D. asked her to walk in the show last year… I don’t want to forget my old friends just because I got more popular and met new ones.

        “Am I friends with the people who owned the salon? No. It’s owned by Johnny Karagiorgis (@JohnnyTheGrk on Twitter) and his wife Penny Drossos (@PDKhair). I’ve met them at a few of my appearances, and they seem nice enough. I know they like me, I just don’t know them very well. I only heard after the fashion show that Penny and Melissa don’t get along, but like I said last week, I can’t keep up with everyone in our town that doesn’t like Melissa! All I can do is tell people not to talk about my family and excuse myself from the situation, which I do every time, even to Kim D! I have heard since then that Penny used to be a special needs teacher and has a Special Needs day every week at her salon where she pampers kids and adults with special needs, which is pretty amazing.

        “How does Penny know Melissa? I don’t know, you’d have to ask her. From what I understand, it’s actually Penny’s family member, not Melissa’s, who owned Lookers (weird thing to lie about). Maybe their argument is from something back then.”

    When are the ladies going to eat crow and stop the Teresa bashing nonsense?? We all know deep down Melissa is loving this. They say, bad publicity is better than no publicity!!
    Do we know the status of next season? I can’t imagine the ladies wanting to film with Teresa and without Teresa they have no storyline. Btw, why are they allowing the husbands and the Manzo kids to not only do TH interviews, but why the reunion? We now have truth, why the continuing Teresa bashing?? I’m exhausted. I really hope Bravo listens and gets rid of the dead weight.

      Dubbalicious, they, the other ladies are so personally invested intaking Teresa down that I don’t think Jesus himself could get them to stop. How sick and creepy is that, what is wrong with these grown a$$ women???? Their hatred and animosity towards her has crossed the border into sick the kind of sick you call Dr. Phil for. No wonder Mr. Gorga Sr. has been so sick, I can’t imagine being a parent and having one child with other relatives make it their mission to destroy a sibling.

        I can not believe you people. The only person ever starting any problems is Teresa. Teresa enjoyed every moment of that fashion show by the smirk on her face. She kept pushing Melisa in the bathroom. She could have just dropped it but instead she got all dramatic about how her heart was pounding. If she cared that much about her “family” she wouldn’t had let this get as far as it did ON CAMERA. She may not have known that Angelo was coming to the fashion show but she sure enjoyed every minute of it. The only thing Melisa is loving is Teresa’s own self destruction.

        • September 25, 2012 at 7:56 PM | #13

          If Teresa was involved, she couldn’t have stopped it once it was set in motion.

          You know what really bothers me about this post? The “you people”. Honestly, everyone is entitled to an opinion and has a unique view point but part of the frenzy about this programme is the division between viewers. I hate the fact that people who clearly see the positive side of Teresa and the underbelly of Melissa are pigeon holed and insulted by voicing an interpretation and explanation of a very seedy situation.

          You are an amazing person…the best shows are the ones that come back every so often. Even tho, Danielle and Kim G., got some punches along the way, was so much easier to watch..you basically didn’t see the line, it only lasted a few mns. and poof…Danielle was gone!! The past 2 yrs. were so challenging for me and my circle. We saw how tough it was 3rd season..thinking maybe Bravo decided to keep everyone in the same place for Season 4. I can’t remember any part of this season, that felt comfortable…..instead Bravo is playing it to get the highest ratings! I honestly don’t know who to trust…how do we bring closure to Caroline’s behavior? Every member of this show needs the money, so I guess they put up with a lot, all is good when pay check arrives. Am so happy to see someone else saw Caroline’s smile..woo-hoo!!

Here’s a link to an extended version of the reunion show that isn’t yet put up on Bravo’s site. http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20632954,00.html

      I just read on Radar Online that Bravo might be giving Teresa her own show. That would be great! Melissa must be so pissed off. I am not watching the reunion all it will be is crazy Jac and the women screaming at Teresa the whole time. How much proof do they need that she didn’t do this? They don’t want Teresa to be innocence cause nobody will care to bother with any of them. They should be thanking Teresa for giving them a storyline. And why is Miserable know it all Lauren at the reunion? I can’t stand the Manzo family her kids are not what I thought they were. And Jac she needs help. Her 16 blog reasons that Teresa did set Melissa up is insane and blocking everybody on twitter on doesn’t agree with her to. Shouldn’t she be more involved with her Autistic son? Melissa is loving the attention it’s all about her now she thinks she is the star! Lmao. She ruined a family she is the real problem . I hope it’s true Teresa gets a show. Better for her to get far away from those women.

            I agree, I would love watching Teresa and her girls. It won’t be dull, for sure. With husband Joe’s trial just around the corner..Teresa needs to be active and stay busy. She’s all the family has. I get so upset and frustrated watching the cast and viewers coming at Teresa…I respected brother Joe, when he left with Teresa/Joe, after the falling out between Teresa and Caroline. (Caroline’s crying was a fake), I’m banking that Caroline was filled in with details before Melissa was approached. Caroline’s behavior/appearances seem to play right into the timing etc. I am very sure that Caroline knew it and added more to it. I love how she hugs and kisses brother Joe..he’s a lose gun, and if he continues to fall for the bate coming his way, someone’s going to get hurt. He’s wreck less and Melissa knows what button to push and she tells exactly what to say!! Either Bravo needs to give her own show, or the New Jersey Housewives needs some editing, get rid of the Manzos!!

    Was Joe Giudice brother and or wife in on this?

    • September 25, 2012 at 12:39 PM | #30

      I’m guessing that Johnny & Penny gave Pete Giudice the heads up that Angelo was introduced to Teresa at the salon and what he said to her, and that Angelo was going to be at the fashion show.

      The producers “kept Angelo away from the ladies on purpose so that Melissa wouldn’t see him until the right moment”… the problem occurred when “Angelo actually went and approached the table before his interaction with Melissa and was stopped by security at the table and turned away. Melissa saw him at this point. She didn’t wanted to let on she knew in front of the cameras, but she texted her husband under the table to come to the fashion show and let him know what was going on.

          Not to mention how all of them at that table except Kathy said how something isn’t adding up. Angelo just said hi, somehow that’s suspicious.

      • September 25, 2012 at 6:12 PM | #34

        Teresa just published her blog on Bravo. Here’s what she said about Pete being there:

        “Why was Joe’s brother Pete Giudice at the Fashion Show? (I got this one a lot!) Pete wasn’t there randomly alone.

      I agree, I wish they and angelo would sit down and do a media interview confirming all this. I’m sure their contracts are null now that episode has aired, unless there is some further confidentiality agreement for what they HAVE filmed- in which case they could do something a la’ Alex McCord’s vlogs…

    Why is Theresa getting all the shit from everyone including the producers, I dont understand why beat up on her, I think she has enough on her plate. Caroline would have been a better choice, she needs to be taken down a notch!!!!!!!! Melissa got her just deserve, I believe she was a full on stripper and Joe knows about it, he was her biggest client! She should just say so and get on with her life who really cares enough about her for it to make a difference. Her singing career wont suffer it is already in the trash.

          Was that Rosie screaming at the end of that clip? Where the phuck did she come from? Kathy looks like she got some surgery done on that face. I was also told by amusing Melissa fans that when she was on Wendy Williams show yesterday that she said that Kim D comes out and tells everyone that Teresa was part of the setup too. I was on Twitter telling them that Kim D. is on Twitter saying that Teresa is innocent. So who’s lying? I know it’s Melissa but, I just want to know your point of view from it. Other than that–I’m so OVER Jacqueline and her crying. She is a terrible friend and I hope Teresa calls her out! She LOVES to play the victim right along w/ Melissa.

          • September 25, 2012 at 11:48 PM | #49

            I think Jacqueline’s crying has more to do with family issues. I think there’s more going on in the Ashley story than will ever make it on TV, then the baby she wanted so badly is found to be autistic. She has a lot to be sad about. I also think Teresa’s idea of denying the truth and smiling no matter what is unhealthy. It’s bad for her entire family.

            October 2, 2012 at 1:11 PM | #51

            way to go Monique…exactly what I have been saying and posting!! Jacqueline is an emotional ship wreck! Her and Kathy are posting texts that they sent to Teresa, turning around showing that Teresa just answered briefly..no one understands the position that Teresa is in..she’s damned one way or the other, so her responses were one liners!! This is only another low attack, no matter it still hurts!! All anyone is focusing on, is the Reunion and how mean Teresa is..Are You Kidding ME! Teresa has had 2 yrs. of this shit…first one led into this last one, and it was almost unbearable to watch. Jacqueline cries over everything…it’s the same when it came to Ashley. Don’t know what Jacq expects from Teresa after she dismissed her friendship…very very sad. Everyone was set up one way or the other, and I can just about bet, Caroline Manzo was included in a lot of info that Teresa wasn’t, and this continued to be incorporated into the apology that Caroline never got!?! Truth is, she got one, Teresa style, now some 10 or so years, both Caroline and Jacqueline, don’t like that style or anything about Teresa…just another situation that was set up…Teresa has been hit and hit and hit, with no warnings, out of the blue attacks. I’m surprised Teresa didn’t seriously crack up, all those betrayals coming at her, and no one listening…I did, and I hope other viewers did to, I wish it was possible to sit on the couch with Teresa!! I’d be there at any expense!!! I’d wear GREEN!!!!!

        That is an intense preview. Maybe I’m crazy or blind, but I believe Teresa didn’t do most of what she was accused. She seems genuine with her tears and, based upon the lies of everyone else and all the backtracking and changing of stories. I also don’t think Teresa told her father Melissa was a stripper the way she’s accused of here. SO sad.

        • Cathy
          October 2, 2012 at 1:17 PM | #53

          so sad indeed, Teresa is being slammed by 4 women who have a check list that came out of the sky…Teresa is definitely in defense, offense and hysteria mode…bad enough you have 1 person bringing up the past, and you have to remember spontaneously, 4 times that, and her head must be ready to blow!!! The odds need more players on Teresa’s end…Team Teresa, all the way. Hopefully she is reading or getting notice of the support she is getting. I wish I could tell her that she doesn’t have to put up with the shit anymore, any of us who see it for what it is, would be by her side all the way! She doesn’t need t defend herself to anyone but God! Team Teresa doesn’t need any defense answers, so just keep it light and smooth. It’s over for her, filming has stopped, but her fans are just not getting the feel, and it doesn’t feel good…we can’t let her know!!!

          I agree with InHWFan. I at first really could not believe Teresa was setting up Melissa, after all the work on the relationship, that all truly seemed to be genuine. After reading the above article, I do believe Teresa was set up. The whole situation is a mess, just like Hollie said. The one thing I still have a hard time wraping my head around though, is why would anyone chose fame/fortune over family and the importance of those ties. They have kids, who are learning from thier behaviors and the cycle is only going to continue into future generations. I really do understand the need to have debts paid and wanting to maintain a particular life style, but at what cost? At what point is it to much, and at what point do you say family before money /fame. To me family should always be first. That’s my thoughts on the subject anyway.

          Another issue is if BravoTV really did those things in the article, I am disturbed by there ill intent. No matter the ratings, they are messing with people’s lives and families. They should have some kind of moral since when dealing with real TV. All I can say is karma is real and it may not be now, but those who did this milisious act will have karma on there back. We may never get to see it, but they will know when it’s time for pay back. They always do!!!

    • September 25, 2012 at 1:45 PM | #62

      At the reunion, Kathy may have not known if she would be back as an official housewife, so maybe Rosie’s anger was compounded by that:

      Q: “Cast changes for next season?”

      A: “I’m not involved next season, but I know Kathy is gone as an official but will likely still be around. Casting went out months ago.”

        WOW, so happy to find this site today..best news ever! Kathy is going, and that’s a great thing. Yes, that was Rosie, fuel fired remarks from sister Kathy, basically all season. Rosie is cool, I hope to see her in and out next season…from what I’ve read, Kathy was embarrassed that Rosie was Gay. Only just begun to accept it, why? it’s on national TV and Kathy didn’t want anyone to know she didn’t approve of Rosie’s choices! Screaming that you want to kill someone is sad, scary and a final reflection on how bad this season was!!! Kathy is manipulative, and has been egging Caroline, Melissa/Joe, by siding with them, or giving them info that causes sides….her dirtiest, was the last night in Nappa, WTF prompted her to start in on Teresa, on how wonderful Caroline is…good move Kathy, you impressed no one, including Caroline. Still shaking my head on this one. Kathy is the victim…and she needed saved by Caroline. Kathy can’t be trusted, and has caused alot more than we have witnessed. She doesn’t like being in Teresa’s shadow…I think that brother Joe will fare better if Kathy/Richie are gone!!!

        No, Fame, don’t do it!Twitter is like letting in the Darkness on an otherwise light-filled world. Those on Twitter post plenty of links to FW, and I think will continue to do so. Twitter is corrosive imo, b/c bloggers are then obligated to ‘compete’, self-publicize, vie for attention, etc.

        This is obviously just my opinion–you know I’ve been really vocal about how much I love this site b/c it’s pure–NOT tied to boasting about how many views it gets, running ads that interfere w/reading topics, sucking up to Z-list celebs to scoop everyone, etc. It’s the quality of the information & purity of the blog owner, that is making FW so popular.

        Again just my opinion. I’m sure plenty of ppl can argue the other side!

        and congrats on the scoop–! Fame, you deserve to be recognized. You put a lot of work into this for what appears to be a TRUE hobby, not disguised as a money-making business, etc.

Thank you for acknowledging how I’m trying to keep the environment here on FW clean.

        September 25, 2012 at 4:16 PM | #96

        Fame, I can’t remember where I saw Teresa’s interview but I do know that Teresa said in her own words that she was in fact offered her own show but she said she didn’t want to expose her daughters, her family like that. Cameras aren’t around all the time for Real Housewives, but if she chose her own show, they would be around too much and she said she didn’t want that for her children. That’s what Teresa actually said. She was offered her own show.

          You’re right Rosalie. She said it, but it was in her Bravo blog, Teresa in Wonderland, August 28, 2012:

          “I have no reason to bring down or (further) humiliate my own family. Caroline and Jacqueline however have a million reasons to want to hurt me and my family and make us look bad… The show started out as all about their family. They were the stars, I was just the silly friend. I wasn’t interested in doing a show with my family at all. I’m still not. I turn down opportunities for my own TV show all the time, because I won’t do a show that exploits me and my kids. I know other people are super into that and would jump at the chance, especially for all the money, but I won’t do it. I won’t sell out my family.”

          Can’t you just see it? They’ve must have thrown some serious temper tantrums: How is it that people like the ‘girl from Paterson’ more than us ‘ham game’ boyzzz? Mommy promised us. And, the producers always laughed at our jokes… they told us we were hy-sterical! And, we have the obligatory ‘Bravo Gay’ on our show! That’s not fair! Pout. Pout. Pout.

    This explains why Melissa got a big grin on her face in the bathroom with Teresa after Teresa finaly came out and told Melissa who the guy was. Melissa got a big grin as if she were thinking, “Teresa, you stupid bitch, you just fell right into the trap!”
    If Teresa had kept her mouth shut about the guy, there would have been no story and the set-up would have been a flop.
    If anything, if Teresa had kept quiet about Angelo, we would have seen the tension in the other women’s faces thinking, “Come On Teresa, Bring Up Angelo!”

    They were waiting on Teresa to speak. This plan required Teresa to speak up. That’s why all the women ignored Teresa the entire night until she went into the bathroom with Melissa. That’s why Melissa pushed Teresa to tell her about Angelo and when Teresa did, Melissa was happy with herself for finaly getting Teresa to talk.

    In the end, God has a way of revealing the truth and showing people the ugly in others.

    Most viewers turned against Caroline, Jacqueline, Kathy and Melissa.
    Since then, we also see the attractive faces for the monstrous appearance. See, Kathy and Melissa who I thought were attractive, had their faces done. Botox, Lips Plumped, Nose Jobs, and now their faces are distorted, ugly, freaky. The angelic appearance is now monstrous, evil and very unattractive. They can never get their natural looks back. Their faces are ugly.

      From the interview:

      Q: “So why didn’t Melissa just deny recognising who Angelo was after he left the table?”

      A: “She couldn’t because she suspected Teresa was involved in the storyline somehow, so she knew she couldn’t lie”

      (edited – in regards to the bathroom scene)

      A: “Teresa is told by the producer to discuss with Melissa who Angelo says he is, but she refuses to do it until pushed by Melissa. Melissa then makes a call in the bathroom to her husband to tell him about the situation, and he tells her he is on his way. That phone call was faked: he was already aware of the situation from her texts earlier and was actually just next door.”

      Rosalie I thought the exact same thing the grins on Melissa and Jacquelines faces were to revealing! They were loving the fact that they can pin the “set up” on Teresa so she can be hated! It looked so fake! For the most part I am upset with Jacqueline!!! Who does that and then claims thats the reason she skipped out on Season 3 reunion RIDICULOUS!!!

      Fiery Sicilian, it takes one Sicilian to another to understand what has been going on here! Real Italians, who do/have the proud life style surrounding their world/family, is refreshing. I love how Teresa/Joe speak Italian, promote their culture, even stating times have changed, but they try whole heart filled efforts passing it on to their daughters. I don’t know what happened to brother Joe. Stay true to yourself, and after all this drama, the Olive Garden is a good description of Caroline’s Italian family!! Kathy’s “old school”..right? She didn’t marry and Italian….and she slams Teresa anytime, anywhere she can. She needs to go, and stay away from Melissa/Joe to stop interfering and pulling them towards her….in the Italian family, there’s plenty of room for everyone…there’s no room for jealousy, lots of room for love, no room for back stabbing…and there is no room for Kathy/Richie, they don’t know how to give and accept. Kathy is/has always been jealous of Teresa. She was miserable being in that camper along. When she surfaced, she would right away start, “how’s it going with Teresa”, or throw a nasty thought suggestion when it seemed things were fine. That toast the last night, had nothing to do with her. You can see, right before dinner, how Caroline and Jacqueline were involved, telling her to sit by Teresa. Then Teresa makes that loving comment, to her brother and his wife, for the great time spent with them, on the RV, etc. Kathy wasn’t there, and why should she play the victim for the 100th time? It was so tensing..before Teresa could say another word, which has been the case the whole season, Caroline or someone else jumps immediately in, and orchestrates the trouble. It has been awful, and I hope Caroline does get called out on it. There is no recovery of the lost past year, as far as Melissa goes, I would focus on my brother and his kids, she is just the neighborhood entertainment!!!

Lets not forget poison all over your TV screen. Her just getting canned would be great. She really has nothing to offer anymore.

      Surprisingly short blog from Melissa:

      “There you have it. I don’t feel I need to waste my time and give you a blow-by-blow of what happened in this episode. I think there were far too many “kawinkydinks” and the writing is on the wall. I know by now you all know me, you know my family, and you know my values. I live my life by three words: trust, loyalty, and respect. I have forgiven and forgotten many things, but I will not let anyone, whether it is an aunt, cousin, sister, mother — I don’t care who it is — ruin my family. I am a mother and a wife, and that comes first with me. I have to protect my family, and if that means staying away from negativity, then that’s what I will do. I would do the same if it was my own sister. At this point I think I only have one word to describe what has happened and what’s to come: D-E-L-U-S-I-O-N-A-L.” – Melissa Gorga, September 25, 2012, ‘Family First’

      • September 26, 2012 at 12:58 AM | #134

        The words trust, loyalty and respect do not belong in her mouth. She has shown none of these traits in two years. She has ruined her family, end of story…. she has just never seen or accepted the Gorgas as her family.

    UPDATE 9/25/12 11:28 PM EST: My source just e-mailed me the following, which was inadvertently left off at the end of the story when copied and pasted:

    Q: “So what are we going to see in the final edit of the finale of RHONJ then.”

    A: “Teresa and Kim D will get the blame for Angelo being at the fashion show. Angelo has several conversations with female guests and a conversation with producers that gets edited into one conversation that implicates Teresa and Kim D in setting up Melissa.The truth is Angelo was just trying to impress these other guests (by saying) that he was part of the show and had filmed with Teresa earlier in the day. They (the producers) got lucky: he outright lies to impress a woman and says to her that he is a vital part of the finale and was asked to be there by the producers, and that audio track is what is heavily edited and used to incriminate Teresa”.

    (edited out)

    The Napa Trip

    Q: “But they all seemed to be getting along in Napa?”

    A: “For the cameras, yes.”

    Q: “Oh, so the whole Napa trip was a put on?”

    A: “They all decided to put the past behind them for the sake of making the trip bearable because they all had to be there, but no one was happy about going on the trip — they all just grinned and bear it.

    Q: “So, do you think Teresa and Melissa were wanting to put the past behind them and be a family at any point in season 3 or 4, or was it all a put on?”

    A: “No, I think, at times, they were both wanting to put the past behind them, but when one was ready to, the other wasn’t, so they butted heads a lot.”

            I just found your site yesterday, and I really like it. The amount of information is overwhelming! This post explains a lot of things I had noticed during the finale. I really think Teresa was blind-sided at the salon, and I think she had no idea what to do when Angelo came to the table. He made a point to speak specifically to Teresa, which made me think he was trying to make her the bad guy and it worked. When spoke to her, you could see Manzo and Laurita faces reacting. Teresa has done a lot of things wrong, but this wasn’t one of them.

            Thanks again for shedding some light on this murky situation.

    Wanted to add how disappointing it is to see the cast behave so vile’y. They MUST KNOW by now they were manipulated into believing things that just aren’t true. Not a one of them has decency enough to admit it, to come forward and say “I was wrong”, & apologize to Teresa.

    Jac was all over Twitter for 48 hours (and may still be) going strong, trying to justify her behavior, make excuses for herself. She was trying REALLY hard-of course b/c she knows she made a buffoon of herself.

    As the h’wives say on every franchise, they always want each other to “own it”–in this case, none of them are owning their wrongness. (I mentioned Sunday night how Kathy Wakile automatically assumed Teresa was involved–rather than defending Teresa & saying NO, I don’t believe it! Kathy believed it all. Now she’s proven wrong–and it’s ((crickets)).

    FYI- the actual owner of Lookers confirmed that Melissa Gorga was a bartender for a short while over a year ago (probably right after the fashion show). I don’t know what is in it for him to do an interview confirming this, but I also don’t watch the show anymore….they have turned me off of watching tv, altogether. Bicker bicker bicker yell yell yell- ack-all of them on all of the shows. Just disgusting. Really a big insult to all of our intelligence. We deserve better.
    Here’s the interview:
    http://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/former-boss-real-housewives-melissa-gorga-was-never-a-stripper-2011309

    As for Theresa, it sounds like she is getting a bad deal, but I think she probably brings it on herself with her attitude and condescension. I have never met anyone with a mouth like that- and I hope I never do. Sure words can be twisted, edited- but she says some mean things in those confessionals. Heart like a stone. And not one bit funny.

    • September 26, 2012 at 12:27 AM | #154

      A similar story came out last year:

      In December 2011, Melissa Gorga’s lawyer obtained a “sworn affidavit” from Lookers’ club owner Chris Kontos that stated Melissa “worked solely in the capacity as a bartender.” The affidavit denies that Angelo ever managed Melissa, then Melissa Marco (her maiden name), during her part-time employment at Lookers and that her actual manager was named Larry Guarino, who previously stated: “She was a bartender for a couple of months years ago, it was such a short time. She was never ever a dancer.” Melissa Gorga said that she can prove she never, ever stripped during her stint, unearthing payroll sheets which list her as a “bar servant” and getting a confirmed sworn statement from longtime club owner Chris Kontos, in which he confirms Melissa Gorga “worked solely in the capacity as a bartender.”

      Melissa hosted Friday Night at Chris Michael’s Steakhouse and Club in Woodbridge, NJ, on May 11, 2012; this club is owned by Chris Kontos, the same man who produced Melissa’s ‘pay register’ for Lookers, which he managed (he owns Chris Michael’s and Breathless The Men’s Club).

      “The ‘affidavit’ from Chris Kontos is about as kosher as Melissa’s ‘pay stubs’. Kontos is not the most trustworthy character either. In 2007, he was charged with breach of contract and fraud (trying to skip out on $250,000 in the purchase of the restaurant that he names himself the owner of ).” [Cara, January 9, 2012, AllAboutTRH.com]

      “So the former Lookers employee is doing promotion for the ex-manager of Lookers Chris Kontos. The same man who signed a sworn affidavit corroborating those claims that she was not a dancer. By the way when the former Lookers DANCER tried to sue Angelo he supplied PROOF that she did dance and Ms Lookers dropped her lawsuit.” [old NJ girl, May 14, 2012 at 1:51 pm, AllAboutTRH.com]

      “I heard a rumour MeHo did an appearance at Chris Michaels’ bar the other night. This bar is owned by none other than her former employer at Lookers Chris Kontos who also happened to supply her with those “pay slips” to prove she was a bar girl when all the stripper rumours surfaced. I wonder why she wasn’t paid for her appearance at Chris Michael’s bar? Anyone? Anyone? Okay, I’ll tell you. She made a deal with Chris if he gave her those pay slips then she would make free appearances at any bars he owns. Win win for him because it gives his bars free advertising and exposure and she can continue to live her lie of a life. [MeHo Gorga, May 14, 2012, AllAboutTRH.com]

        And the rest aren’t any better…they all accuse each other of stabbing each other in the back with a knife in their hand. They are fame hungry, greedy s.o.b.s-no one is right…they are all just so wrong in so many ways, there is no defending any of them. End rant.

      Not as much as what it would cost to have actual real programming and entertainment…like paid actors acting, with a real script and actual writers.
      We all get ripped off watching these shows. They do them because they have a higher profit margin.
      I looked at how much I paid for cable each year and decided until they yank these crap shows, I am not paying them a dime. It’s been quite liberating not having cable (been only about a month now).
      I love that I can live stream on my tv with no commercials and I don’t have to reduce myself to watch backstabbing liars because there isn’t much else on.

    My wish for Teresa is that she will follow FW advice and get her own show with editing rights. If she is recast for S5, the only topic Bravo will have a witch-hunt festival with the trail of Joe and everyone else’s inputs on it. But then again I really think she needs to keep pursuing the books/hair care and put all this behind her. She doesn’t need to be a pawn to Bravo any more.

    so Caroline’s book is going to include information about Theresa……SHOCKING! If it didn’t would anyone buy it? Melissa can’t stop giving interviews about Theresa. If she did stop, would anyone even know her name? Jacqueline is absolutely obsessed with talking about Theresa, if she wasn’t would any body tolerate hearing her voice? and everyone else associated with this show: #1 topic Theresa! so wouldn’t it be interesting if everyone just stopped “listening”. How long before these women would be obsolete? another idea…..how about boycotting Bravo period…..I wonder how their tune would change…….hurry up Bravo, step up……..after all; the viewers are not as dumb as you think they are………we have “bought” what your selling for the sake of entertainment, but changing the channel is as easy as……..

    Ok, how much of all of this set up all season ,and the fashion show did Jacqueline know about? I have a feeling that she she is up to her eye ball in all this mess!

    I wonder what the hell is going to happen next season?

    Will Bravo give Teresa a break, she has taken shit for 2 freakin seasons!!

            September 26, 2012 at 1:19 PM | #192

            No he doesn’t get it because he’s ‘gettin it’ from Andy…..

            It went down just as I expected it. He was a total jerk to her and didn’t let her speak and IMO basically chided her as though she were a 9 yr old. I wish Teresa was better at expressing herself under pressure so that she could have defended herself better.

            September 26, 2012 at 3:57 PM | #193

            I hear you, I guess my perspective was I thought he would of been more professional and showed some respect (for himself, his viewers, his guests, audience and his own show) than how he went about it and the interview. It showed me he doesn’t have his facts right or chose no moral compass at all with not showing both sides.

            I have a child that is diagnosed within the Autistic Spectrum, *Aspergers* believe me its not easy. My child is 19 -I have jumped through hoops for my child and changed careers, lifestyle, schedule, how I run my household to make life easier (structure) in everyday ways for him to get through what others do with out a second thought. Jac should be lucky there is a lot more awareness, information, diet, education etc etc etc. With the way she has conducted herself within and outside of this show, stupid twitter wars with herself and that the agrument from Anderson to Teresa not reaching out to her (Jac) was beyond ridiculous to me. He was fully aware of the timeline and that they were not on speaking Terms (T & J) I was disappointed in the whole interview especially when he said- he won’t watch CA when that brings awareness and $$$ to charities and how well Holly Robinson Peete did and won tasks also how much awareness she brought to Autism Speaks…Seriously…but no, lets have a pity party for Jac by Teresa not reaching out to her-whoa! So if Anderson wants to sit on the Throne with the Queen Bitch-Than Bravo for Him!!!

            Wait til Jac sees what bullying really is when her child gets out in the world to people who are not aware of Autism. She might want to put her life in Perspective!!! NOW! She has no idea what kind of ride she is going to endure with a child in the Autistic Spectrum.

            Teresa goes on a show probably thinking and most likely, was told there is going to be *some* trash talk) not the *whole* interview going to revolve on *EDITED CLIPS* again WTH?? Teresa comes walking out with her book and BAM walks into yet another Sh*t Storm!! I thought He would of had more respect for his viewers and audience-yet I was Wrong!

            All I know is I want an apology from Jac for Swearing on her Autistic Child *in yet another EDITED CLIP* for such… as Anderson calls as a *silly reality show*. Those kind of comments really don’t sit well as a mother of a Special Needs Child!! At ALL!

            Sorry for the my lil’ rant..I *used to enjoy* this show RHONJ, well at least some of the cast and their segments. Not so much anymore!!

    Dear Fame,

    I respect your opinion to stay off twitter I totally agree. It is a dark and mean place. I have seen our little Gia be attacked, also Lysa teenage daughter. Lysa daughter was only defending her mom and aunt not saying anything nasty about T. I am not their parents but I would keep them both off twitter monitored or not until this reunion and bullshit plays out. Minor children are off limits….

    Granted I think the Gorgas are famewhores, Caroline is mean, Jac needs help, Kathy signed up for the ride, and Teresa is working her but off to pay her bills and secure her children’s future. At the end of the day this is a Reality (not really) Show that Bravo let me become the dark twisted monster it is now.

    There are many crazies in this world. Do you remember last year when Taylor Armstrong was receiving death threats from a teenage girl in NJ on twitter? This is a very trying time for people with the economy, unemployment, underemployment, health insurance crisis, election year; the list goes on and on. I think people are taking there frustrations out on each other on Twitter and their opposing points of view.

    Caroline Manzo said one thing on the Bethenny Show please attack us not each other. This reminded me a little of the women I loved on Season 1 and 2. Well times have changed.

    I am asking all the tweeters out there to please not to get too rapped up in this cesspool. At the end of the day this is TV, meant for entertainment, I am officially staying off twitter until this nightmare of a show is over.

    Thank you for letting me vent.

        I saw that, she also presented screen shots of her messages (albeit only SOME of them). She should have just ignored those statements, which leads me to believe that Jacqueline is truly obsessing about all of this.

          I tend to believe Teresa when she said that Jacqueline continually/keeps on texting her. For those that ‘watch’ on twitter, that would be in total keeping with Jac’s established ‘twitting’ habits (to text in excess at times) and the questionable content.
          And the screen shots of ‘one liners’ she has left on her twitter today I’m sure are only the tip of the iceberg. After all, she hears/sees that Teresa made that comment on A/C and her has already left 10+ tweets PLUS ‘re tweets’……

            I do too – I hope she’s keeping screen shots of this stuff cause Whacko Jacko just might think she has a case – I have no idea how this stuff works and if forensics can recover the actually contents – I have no doubt jac has sent T some doozy texts

    Do the housewives even know about this blog? How can they sit there and just bash her still when all of this has come to light? It’s ridiculous what these fame whores for woman will do to get on TV. I’ve lost respect for all of them. I only wonder what the producers have set up on other real housewife franchises! Bravo is after all responsible for the death of Russell Armstrong.

      Hi Betty – I felt the same thing about Russell Armstrong and wrote about it and the respoonsibility they have for the destruction of a family and freindships on the Bravo blogs. I was completely obliterated from their website and have been blocked. it is amazing how Bravo feels it’s okay to play with their casts AND their viewers – reminds me of a movie many years ago NETWORK – famous line “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!!!” Well, I sure am mad about what this network is getting away with and I’m not going to be watching it anymore. Further, I will do everything I can to get my social circles to follow likewise. SHAME ON BRAVO!!!!

    This blog is amazing. I’m addicted!!! I think Jacqueline is harassing Teresa with a million texts per second. And yeah..you can sue based on that and maybe even get a restraining order of some sort (if Teresa proves Jac is a danger to her and her family, I guess). Jacqueline is always tweeting. I never believed it until I actually went to her twitter and saw it with my own eyes. There’s a comment every few minutes. WTF lady! Does she have someone helping her autistic son? I don’t get it.

  54. September 26, 2012 at 6:02 PM | #213

    I personally don’t believe this article…it was soooo obvious that Teresa knew what was going on that a blind person could’ve seen from far away. Why would she go to the bathroom and bring it up to Melissa…seriously!

  55. September 26, 2012 at 6:40 PM | #214

    Just watched Anderson Cooper’s little Teresa “interview” didn’t Cohen go out on his yacht? I don’t get why a reputable journalist would do such a hack job. I feel like a nut bag saying this but honestly why is she getting bashed on his show about message he’s not privy to and conversation about Jac’s kid’s autism. I mean Jac got to infer all she liked with a giggle no questions asked and Teresa got attacked for actually stating she did approach her but there relationship has deteriorated past the point of communication.
    I don’t doubt for a second that Jac gets on text rants to Teresa, we see it on twitter! Disgusting AC! Wonder if he realise that there is an audience will to boycott suppliers/supporters of these the other women…. bugger it, might go sign up on his website…..

T is supposed to be on again tomorrow to discuss the fall-out of today’s interview. He was very biased and I think he’s taking some heat for it. Hope so, just made me so angry…….she gets bashed on the show does she need to get bashed in interviews as well?? geez

    Yes. I have always heard this is how reality TV works. Producers instigate, the cast can’t speak on a variety of different topics, including that they’re angry about the show, or say; promo’s.
    I struggle to believe Teresa is the unstable one. She doesn’t let a lot of things bother her, it’s like water off a ducks back until it involves her family, which tells me she really does love them and fears losing them. No matter what she might say in anger! Everybody says things they regret when they’re angry.. well, most everybody. Maybe Andy is so used to the insane drama, that he can’t comprehend how Teresa can have an I-dont-givea-shit attitude. Who do we, as viewers, see on the internet degrading fans of the show? Not Teresa. It was Caro who insinuated she would hang a black woman from the tall tree in her front yard. Is that stable? It is Joey G, who got caught flirting with himself on twitter. It is Mel and her sisters who behave like gutter trash, it’s like they are to stupid to realize without us there is no show. It is Melissa who doesn’t realize she is hated in the music industry, and it’s Melissa who has an avi of herself lip syncing. lol ‘Look ma, I can move my lips to music”. She can’t dance. She can’t sing without lots of assistance, and I think we can all do that. I think she doesn’t realize the media is mocking her just like they did Kim. She should try be a ma to all those chirrun. How is Teresa the unstable one? She seems to be the only sane one. She is climbing out of debt alone, she is working her ace off, and by all accounts she is supporting her children’s dreams and her own. It’s not all about her, like it is with Mel. I find her so strange. Her kids are not first in her world. So obvious she is the only baby in that family. I won’t comment on Jacqueline.. she has more issues than Vogue. I will say this, she needs help.

    (edited – in regards to the bathroom scene)

    A: “Teresa is told by the producer to discuss with Melissa who Angelo says he is, but she refuses to do it until pushed by Melissa. Melissa then makes a call in the bathroom to her husband to tell him about the situation, and he tells her he is on his way. That phone call was faked: he was already aware of the situation from her texts earlier and was actually just next door.”
    Watch the bathroom scene: Melissa is calmly putting on lipstick until teresa starts in with her pounding heart baloney. Teresa is the one “pushing” Melissa about this creep, not the other way around. Seems to me that Terrsa did what the producers wanted her to do after all…
