A Question for Patti Stanger — Do You Think Joe Gorga Should Leave Melissa for Cheating on Him?
February 16, 2013 286 Comments
From Bravo’s The Dish:
During her Watch What Happens Live special on Valentine’s Day, Patti Stanger was doling out love advice for Bravo couples. In true Patti fashion, words were hardly minced, and when it came to Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe, Patti said that she thought Teresa should consider dumping Joe. In fact, here’s what she said, verbatim:
“Ugh. Teresa, you know that I got your back, you know that I love you, but this is a bad dude. Get rid of him — and call me.”
Needless to say, Teresa isn’t exactly thrilled with The Millionaire Matchmaker’s humble opinion, and on Friday she decided to hit back on Twitter. With a seemingly calm and loving demeanor, Teresa tweeted:
“Last night @pattistanger with @bravoandy all relationships are a work in progress. One can only judge by walking in someone’s shoes. XOXO”
Patti was quick to respond, replying directly to the tweet saying that she was only hoping for the best for Teresa and the family:
“@Teresa_Giudice @bravoandy I love u n want the best for u n the kids.”
Now why would Andy ask Patti what she thought of Teresa’s marriage — the heavily edited scene in the vineyard was from a year and a half ago (September 2011)?
When asked, “Was Joe Giudice talking to a woman on the phone in Napa; did he forget to turn off his mic?”, a former RHONJ post production supervisor, speaking to a cousin on September 17, 2012, responded: “The call was 100% innocent. He called Teresa a c*** because he didn’t want to be there filming, and was taking it out on her. He had a legal mess at home he needed to deal with but was contractually obligated to be there.”
Of course, Andy Cohen did not ask Patti what she thought about the Life & Style COVER story with the headline “Melissa Cheated on Joe!,” which came out the day before, February 13, 2013.
“Melissa went out to dinner at Sushi Lounge, a local restaurant, and left early to go hook up with Bulldog.” – Source for Life & Style Magazine, ‘Melissa Cheated on Joe!”, February 13, 2013
“Bulldog’s real name is Brian Bowen, who is her ex boyfriend & she met with him in Sushi Lounge parking lot [in 2009]” … Their friends who were with them at the Lounge witnessed them hooking up in the car… the car was rockin’! (not an exact quote, but paraphrased). – Source to Fame-Whorgas, October & December 2012
“A scene was filmed at the season 5 Holiday PFS on December 3, 2012, where Kim D and Penny approached Teresa with information about Melissa’s infidelity, and Teresa agreed to a phone call with someone (not Bryan) who confirmed that Melissa cheated on Joe multiple times after they were married.” – Source to Fame-Whorgas, October & December 2012
“Penny Drossos-Karagiorgis, Teresa’ friend and a salon owner, is responsible for getting Bulldog to spread his story.” – Source for Life & Style Magazine, ‘Melissa Cheated on Joe!”, February 13, 2013
No woman has ever come forward alleging Joe cheated on Teresa, yet there are strong allegations against Melissa; however, the Andy Cohen machine (Us Weekly, Wendy Williams, Anderson Cooper, Kelly Ripa, Kathy Griffin, Patti Stanger, etc.) wants to stifle the truth about that.
“I don’t have to look in her mirror or live with her. She has to do that all by herself. I know the TRUTH & so does she.”
“Follow the arrows it will all ad up! I have nothing to gain or lose.. Didn’t even wanna be involved in this.”
“So I get the phone call today that she says she’s not worried about me making it on the show because my tmor is back and I will be dead.”
“They’re hoping I will just go away ‘NOW’ or like she said, Die from my tumor. We’ll I’m not and I am ALIVE TODAY! Never wake a sleeping Giant!”
“Just so this clear, I’m not trying to make anyone believe anything. I just speak the truth! It’s how I roll. “
“I am in to good of a place in Life, they can say whatever they want about me far far away.”
[I live close to the sister, all they want is fame! They have nothing worth noting] “@krafte63 1st off, u just said I was in with them, now u say they have nothing worth nothing. Wrong, they have Children! U shouldn’t go there!”
“She can’t make me look bad cause I have made mistakes in life and I own up to them. I am not perfect, who is!?I can look myself in the mirror.”
[She won't meet you on a show. She will "leak" bs] She won’t cause I can say too much. I’m the one who has all the answers to everyone’s questions, the TRUTH.”
“I have to say I have chewed tougher steaks then anyone that has every been on the show rhwnj #justsaying. If the time comes I will keep it real, that is a promise.”
“Some things are right some are wrong. I don’t have to proof anything to anyone, but if this keeps up, the best is yet to come & I haven’t even gotten started…always be yourself.”
“Right now there thinking how dare he lol, but it’s ok when you do the dirty work to others right!? lol no one knows better than I do.”
“It’s ok, she’s so desperate to keep her fake image & fake fame, that’s the level she is going to. I’m all good! Xo.”
“Let me set something straight I don’t Hate anyone, it’s not in my heart TODAY! Like I said if confronted I will just tell the TRUTH! “
“Man talk about the possibility of the “perfect storm” coming… Hmmm I just found some interesting pictures with dates on them.. Hmmm.”
Patti made matters worse by later tweeting (at 4:25 PM on February 15, 2013):
“When a man doesnt work is in trouble with the law, talks to other woman n gets callin his wife a biotch, should a woman stay?”
Some of Patti’s Twitter followers gave her a piece of their minds about her comments regarding Joe and Teresa’s marriage, to which she responded in typical Bravo fashion (her responses are in italics):
Patti Stanger @pattistanger
“@JennaDeVine: @FauxRealityEnt @pattistanger Richie 4 making that horrid comment bout Kathy smelling like fish!” love kathie, so real.
@pattistanger @Teresa_Giudice @BravoAndy you are a very mean oldmaid might be better to clam it you are making it worse phoney
Patti Stanger @pattistanger
“@FauxRealityEnt So why didn’t @pattistanger have the balls to tell #ManzoBoys and Caro to cut the cord already!” not my place.
Patti Stanger @pattistanger
“@Dorisrocky: @girl0nFlRE @pattistanger @Teresa_Giudice @BravoAndy that is why you are single bitch!!” not single sweetie catch the f up.
When asked by AllAboutTRH on October 10, 2012, if she ever told Jacqueline that Joe cheated on her, Teresa said:
“I never told Jacqueline any of that. If I had proof of Joe cheated on me, I wouldn’t be with him. I’m just not made that way. I know some people would stick with their husbands even if they did that but to each their own. It would be unfortunate but I would definitely not stay with Joe.”

[The whole Marco clan was retweeting the RumorFix article blaming Teresa for Melissa's cheating scandal]
This is the summation from RumorFix blog:
Talk show host Wendy Williams has quickly come to the defense of one of her favorite Housewives.
On Friday, Wendy opened her show with a rant against the Bravo network’s Real Housewives of New Jersey. Williams took a stand and defended Melissa Gorga who was called out for cheating on her husband, Joe, in this week’s Life&Style.
The outspoken host made it clear that she does not believe the accusations against Melissa and sharply warned Bravo that RHONJ producers are gonna have to “do better than this or just shut down the [Real Houswives] franchise.”
Wendy went on to point her finger at Melissa’s enemies on the show, Teresa Giudice and Kim D. She called them “troublemakers” and said the the whole plot line to destroy Melissa is “very tiring” and that it’s time for producers to “come up with newer and fresh material!”
So let me get this straight Wendy…………it’s perfectly fine to disect Teresa’s marriage but once it comes to your beloved Melissa, now Bravo is going too far???????????
She doesn’t believe the accusations. That’s okay. Her opinion. But to call out Teresa as the one doing this is just plain wrong.
This, again, is why I go crazy with NJ & defend Teresa. Teresa’s the troublemaker. Teresa is out to destroy the family.
In MY opinion, it has been Melissa all along. But Wendy Williams, Kelly Ripa, all of the WWHL guests that Bravo books…………they are all against Teresa. Saying she should leave the show.
My rant is done!!!
