Melissa Gorga Sings Her New Single “Never Let Me Go” Live Without Autotune and Attends VMAs; Giudice’s Friends and Relatives “Cause Ruckus” on Ship Bottom Beach Over $5 Per Person Beach Fee

August 27, 2013

Melissa Gorga’s Live Performance Without Autotune of “Never Let Me Go” on XL106.7

During her appearance on XL106.7′s morning radio show with Johnny House in Orlando, Florida on June 28, 2013, Melissa Gorga sang her new single “Never Let Me Go,” which was released on August 25, 2013.

Play the video above to watch her dance and listen to her sing without autotune, or click on the link below for the actual interview as well as her live performance (8:50 mark):

For some reason the radio station waited until two weeks ago to upload the video – perhaps they were trying to spare her the embarrassment. However, it is more likely that someone at the radio station wanted us to hear her real voice instead of her singing along to a backing track, where her vocals are barely heard over the autotuned recording. Before the video was uploaded, the track with her vocals must have been isolated so it could be heard over the backing track she was singing along to – thank you XL106.7 for allowing us to hear the real Melissa Gorga, without autotune!

UPDATE 1: The video uploaded to youtube.com by the radio station XL106.7 was taken down on August 28, 2013 shortly after this story was published at FW.

UPDATE 2: The copy of the video at dailymotion.com also has been removed as of 1:45 AM on August 29, 2013.

UPDATE 3: Another copy of the video at youtube was taken down around 3 PM on August 29, 2013. Melissa doesn’t want people to know how bad she sings without autotune – she even demanded it be removed from youtube by the radio station that recorded the live performance (however, she has no problem with the dubbed over version of the performance in the video below).

Another version of the video was uploaded two months ago by one of the backup dancers – the auto-tuned recording of the song is dubbed over Melissa singing live (see video below).

FW published a story on July 13, 2013 (link below) about Melissa’s trip to Orlando, where she also sang off key with a backing track at Red, Hot and Boom:

Joe and Melissa Gorga attended MTV’s Video Music Awards (VMAs) on August 25, 2013 – Melissa boasted that Justin Timberlake’s manager, Johnny Wright, who has been managing Melissa’s music career since October 2012, gave her tickets (seat fillers), which she shared with her two sisters (what kind of parking lot favors have Melissa and her sisters promised Johnny?!).

“Joe and I got to go to MTV’s Video Music Awards last night in Brooklyn. It was my very first time at the VMAs. The energy there is amazing and vibe is so relaxed. Fans were screaming at their favorite celebs going down the red carpet and everyone had a smile on their face! All of the performances were great, but there is no denying that Justin Timberlake blew the roof off. His performance gave me chills. He is one of the most humble and sweetest guys out there. He deserved his special award on so many levels. He was beyond amazing. God Bless him. I’ve been watching the VMAs for as long as I can remember, and to be there was more than I could have ever asked for. Thank you Johnny Wright for making it happen.” – Melissa Gorga’s Bravo blog, Melissa’s Trip to the Emergency Room, Season 5 Episode 13, August 26, 2013

Us Weekly, the magazine Bravo is using to push Melissa to the forefront, included a photo of Melissa in their coverage of the VMAs. RadarOnline (shocker!) and OK! magazine put her on their “best dressed” lists for the event.

Teresa did not elaborate on what she meant by “all of us.” Jacqueline was asked on Twitter if Bravo invited all the Housewives, and she said: “No they didn’t. Ashlee was invited though.”

The Giudices were part of a group of 30 on Ship Bottom Beach, Long Beach Island, NJ, on August 24, 2013, who argued with a fee collector over the $5 per person fee (photo above) – apparently, the misunderstanding was because the group had just paid a $5 per person fee at a neighboring beach.

In a local NBC report, police said beach goers arguing about the fee with collectors is not uncommon, but it usually doesn’t result in police involvement. The local NBC report is summarized below:

The Giudices were among a large group of people – about 30 friends and relatives – who got into a heated argument with a beach tag collector on Saturday afternoon, refusing to buy a $5 per person beach tag. Police officers were summoned because of inappropriate language. The police chief said that officers helped calm everyone down. The confusion arose because the group had another town’s, a bordering town’s, beach badges. According to police, it was a “misunderstanding at that level,” and the group was told they had to buy their town’s badges. No charges were filed. Police said they have trouble every summer with folks who don’t want to buy badges, although those incidents don’t make waves like this.

The video of the NBC report is at the link below:

Of course, TMZ had a cruder take on the story and gave readers the impression that the ruckus was over $5, rather than $5 per person, which the group just paid at a neighboring beach. The following is their report, which has been picked up by other sources.

Teresa & Joe Giudice Clash with Cops Over Five Whole Bucks
By TMZ
August 26, 2013

Five stinkin’ dollars … that’s what started a massive argument this weekend between several police officers and “Real Housewives” stars Teresa and Joe Giudice — all because the couple didn’t want to pay a tiny beach entrance fee, sources tell TMZ.

Here’s the back story — the Giudices were kickin’ it on Ship Bottom beach on Long Beach Island, NJ Saturday afternoon (with roughly 30 friends and family members) when they were approached by a teen girl beach worker.

Sources on the scene tell us, the employee asked to see the Giudices’ “beach badges” — basically $5 admission tickets required to chill in the sand — and the family flipped, refusing to “pay to go to the beach.”

We’re told one family member even yelled at the girl, saying, “F*** you, f*** this we are not paying for the f***ing beach. This is a joke!” Remember: 5 dollars per person.

We’re told the girl started crying, and when beach PD responded … the Giudices continued to kick up a stink, but eventually coughed up chump change.

Of course, Teresa and Joe are facing massive money fraud charges, but still — 2 TV stars oughta cough up 5 dollars without a fight.

The real story here is, “Why are citizens charged a fee to use a public beach?” Click here for a report by a local CBS station on New Jersey beach fees (excerpt below).

New Jersey is one of a tiny handful of places in the United States that makes people pay for the privilege of dipping their toes in the surf or spreading a blanket on the sand.

Under a legal doctrine dating back to the Roman Empire, the ocean, bay and river shorelines are to be open forever to the public. In practice, though, it doesn’t always work out that way.

[...]

But some shore towns seem to be just fine with mostly locals on their sand, and disagreements over who can and should use the beach sometimes take on elements of class warfare.

    So Teresa is and as been for awhile the ugly duckling of gossip rag mags and tv trash talking shows, this is getting old, she is a good person, please stop this, she is a strong women but with school starting and everything else around them at the moment I don’t think they need this, I mention school because I am thinking of those poor girls, we know how mean kids can be, and then TB and TSIL fueling the fire on the show, this situation has become sad and hurtful, not only for the Guidaces but for they’re fans, is getting exhausting to defendem, I don’t back up but some ppl are just too hard to reason with!

    I just like Teresa a lot, and this is beyond! the women can’t seem to catch a break! SAD,SAD,SAD

      Hey Nicole, I just updated this blog to make it clearer that it is $5 per person since TMZ is giving readers the impression it was over only $5 total.

        Also, those beaches only charge adults. I was down there two weeks ago. I believe 16 and up pay.

    August 27, 2013 at 10:35 PM

    Before jumping to crazy conclusions. It was made clear that they had badges from either Long Beach or Surf City. I’ve been in the exact same situation before. You can walk down the beach and be in another town and not even know it. And what folks out of the area don’t realize is what a scam these towns run. They charge ludirous amounts for parking, beach badges, etc. It can get pretty annoying. I had a lovely place down at Point Pleasant many years ago. It was only a block from the beach. I ended up getting rid of it because the fees, parking restrictions, traffic just got more than it was worth. My point is – the group had already paid for access to the sand and water and then were being asked to pay for it all over again. After a point it just gets stupid – especially since anything covered by the tides is free.

      August 27, 2013 at 10:38 PM

      I didn’t know that, that is a scam. I bet that they thought they could use these beach tags for this beach and when they couldn’t they flipped because they can’t see paying 5 dollars for each beach. But still they have been in this part of the state before and know how it works for the beach. They just didn’t want to pay pure and simple.

      • Deb G
        August 28, 2013 at 7:08 AM

        Buck, I live right by LBI and its more then 5 bucks on weekdays. Weekends are more per person and its not fair if you just paid a block away to pay again! If you pay once you should be able to be on any beach. But they don’t allow it.

      • corky21
        August 28, 2013 at 8:45 AM

        Exactly. I vacation there every year, 30 years now, and you always need a beach badge. However, two weeks ago, I visited my sister in her area, and paid 20 dollars for a weekly badge. Then when I was at my house and on the beach they said I needed one for that area of the beach. I said, i paid 20 dollars already, sorry, that was for her area. So I got up and left. Then the next day, I’d watch for them and walk down to the water when they would come to check. That get’s annoying. I think, that it’s always been that way, but this was the first time I actually paid for a badge at my sister’s beach and then realized I wasn’t allowed to use it on my own beach.

        So, yeah, it stinks, because it’s one long strip of island beach, but they charge you if you visit or sit in another township of the beach.

        The money collected all goes to the same place I’m sure to pay for lifeguards, etc. It makes no sense to me. If everyone has a badge, regardless of where, they paid, now I have to pay twice, or three times, depending on where I’m visiting. Not fair.

        This is what must have happened, maybe they had badges from surf city, like one jetty away, lol.

    • August 27, 2013 at 10:54 PM

      Thank you Saddle, the voice reason and facts!! I’d never heard something as ludicrous as a beach fee, but I live in AZ and only go to the beaches in CA or MX (no beach fees).

      • August 27, 2013 at 11:34 PM

    • August 28, 2013 at 6:30 AM

      Is it $5 if you want to be on the beach or $5 per sun lounger?

      I have never paid to use a beach in UK or European Holiday destinations, but if you want to be off the sand in the shade with a little table I can understand a charge.

      On another not Melissa really can’t sing. I can easily sing better than that, so can my mum and she is tone deaf.

      Saddle_River, when I went to Pt. Pleasant 2 years ago, it was $20 to park in a lot (absolutely no street parking available) and $7 or $8 to get on the beach. I think it’s now $10 on the weekends. Not in any hurry to go back there.

      I don’t understand, we just went to Wildwood Crest this past summer and they’re was no one checking for tags. Is this a private area where they were?

      • eggmitit
        August 28, 2013 at 8:50 AM

        Miami, I think the beach in Wildwood and Atlantic City are free, but most of NJ’s beach towns have a seasonal (Memorial Day to Labor Day) “badge” that residents or frequent visitors purchase in advance and are supposed to wear on your bathing suit. For daily visitors, you purchase a daily badge (usually a wristband or a piece of cloth). In the case of Seaside, Pt. Pleasant, etc. where there is a boardwalk, the only access to the beach are these booths where you have to pay in order to get on. In the smaller beach towns, it’s open access, but there are booths where you are supposed to stop and pay. I guess there are a lot of people who don’t honor the “honor system” (assuming you are going to pay) so staff patrols the beach, checking for badges. I have seen it happen on more than one occasion on different beaches. I did consider it a nuisance, but the town would surely lose a ton of money if they didn’t check. The fact they charge fees astounds me, and they go up every year! If I was paying property taxes there, I would be really pissed.

        • August 28, 2013 at 6:45 PM

          I always remember being checked for a beach badge when we rented a shore house, or even if we went for the day… no matter where we went. I believe NJ is the only state to charge for beach access. Wildwood is one of a very few where you don’t have to pay for beach access. Atlantic City is another. I don’t know of any others that are free. However, re: Wildwood… there is actually talk about doing away with the free beaches and charges as most all other beaches in NJ do but as of now it’s still free.

      • Deb G
        August 28, 2013 at 9:40 AM

        Miami53, in my experience with LBI for the past 27 years you have to pay every day or before Memorial Day buy badges. Then you can only use the badge for that beach area. When my kids were little we went to Surf City, when they were teenagers they would only go to Ship bottom. So you had to buy a different badge its crazy.

      • ABetterMom
        August 28, 2013 at 11:02 AM

        North Wildwood, Wildwood, And Wildwood Crest are all free beaches (for now!).

      • Miami53
        August 28, 2013 at 1:25 PM

        I still can’t believe it….our state has several beaches but the water is colder than the Jersey Shore….that is why we went to Wildwood Crest this summer. They don’t charge to use the beach. For parking yes…but that is all. Its not like the Jersey Shore is a small area. I would be very aggravated if I had to keep paying for every beach. What is the money used for….are those beaches much better than other areas.

    • August 28, 2013 at 9:24 AM

      Hey Saddle! I used to go to the beach as a kid and we had a place in Manasquan. Just a little shack, but what wonderful memories. It was all country. But even then, I remember the stupid fees. We would visit relatives in Asbury for like 2 min. have to pay, then move to Point Pleasant and have to pay again. It was so odd to have to pay to go to the beach. I think in those days they stamped your hand. Such fond memories. People thought we were very odd people to summer in New Jersey.
      On another note, you have to watch the Melissa video. You can pass to the part where she starts singing. You must listen to all of it. I used to think she couldn’t really be as bad as we think. She is worse. She is quite possible the worst “singer” I have ever heard. I say that without predjudice, and you will too after you listen to it.

      • Saddle_River_NJ
        August 28, 2013 at 9:45 AM

        LOL! My family started going to Manasquan back in the 1920′s! When I bought the place in Pt Pleasant it was borderline sacrilege. Old Kodachrome slides and shaky 8mm movies keep the memories alive for me. Remember the traffic on the Garden State Parkway on the bridge over the Raritan River and the lines of overheated cars on the side before the tolls?

        And OMG!!! That bitch sounds awful. It is beyond pathetic. Cat strangling awful. Maybe her vocal chords were damaged by too much time spent servicing men in parking lots. I just don’t get it. Did they set this “performance” up as a joke? It reminds me of William Hung on American Idol.

          Funny you should mention Manasquan, because I that is where I went during the 70s and 80s. It was (and still is) such a beautiful town. Even the shacks that remain are immaculate. It’s a shame you had to sell in Pt. Pleasant, as it is beautiful there as well. Smaller and cleaner than Seaside, which always had that seedy vibe, long before the cast of the Jersey Shore tarnished it forever. It’s just too crowded and too expensive to visit anymore.

    Holy crap, I can’t believe NJ charges you just to use the beach! I live in Los Angeles and I feel like the city finds a way to charge us for everything, but this is ridiculous!

    So if I wanted to take a walk along the beach in NJ, would I be charged $5 for every town that i walked through? Are there other states in the US that do this?

    So people that are too poor to pay $5 for each of their kids don’t get to enjoy the beach? Sorry I’ve just never heard of this before–it’s sad.

    • August 28, 2013 at 1:40 AM

      It’s the stupidest thing I’ve heard of in my life. Tollways I get (i think that’s what they call them, we have freeways), but beach fees, that’s just nuts IMHO?

        August 28, 2013 at 5:28 AM

        I agree! Texas has over 300 miles of shoreline and some local Galveston Island beaches have $8 per vehicle parking fees but free parking is usually available if your willing to walk a bit further. Our family has also enjoyed the beautiful beaches along the Mississippi gulf coast (Gulfport to Biloxi) without any fees.

        I don’t mind paying for convenience or amenities but $5 each to go to a public beach is crazy.

    • Deb G
      August 28, 2013 at 7:18 AM

      Yup, its more then $5 on any given weekday and more on weekends. It is sad that you can’t enjoy the ocean and then most of the beaches don’t even offer a bathroom on LBI, at least in Pt. Pleasant they have bathrooms.

      kids under 12 yo are free.

  8. August 28, 2013 at 1:05 AM

    They could have moved back over to the beach where they already paid, or left. After 5 pm the beach is free….everyone who lives in NJ knows all about the beach fees.

    If you are walking along the tideline, I think that is free. There are also boardwalks on most of NJ beaches (set way back, doesn’t interfere with the beach) so you can walk and enjoy. Each town has a different feel, some are more family friendly others are pristine.

    It’s not all like the beach scene on “Jersey Shore” thank God!

  9. August 28, 2013 at 2:24 AM

    Wow….that is ridiculous!! You have to pay to go to a PUBLIC beach?? I live in NC and my family has a condo at Carolina Beach. If that ever happened down here there would be trouble! I would be protesting it too. I thought it was bad when I saw that a pier was making people pay to walk out on it when it was always free before. And of course, TMZ has to cover this story only because it is Teresa. And then to continue to point out that it was only $5…..didn’t they have 30 people with them? I don’t care if it was only $5, it is outrageous to have to pay to go to a public beach! Period!!

      I live in NC also. On the Outer Banks. There is no charge to go on the beach and parking is free as well. NC did just recently start charging to drive on the beach in the 4×4 areas. That had all the locals in an uproar. They are charging $40 per week or $120 per year. We always buy the year pass. It’s so nice just to pull up to the ocean and not have to lug everything you need. Plus the fishing is great!

      Some of the homeowners on Nj beaches complain about too many visitors. Heres the problem though…..You need those visitors to keep your businesses afloat. Most of the money is made in a few short months so if the visitors didnt come, those pizza shops, beer dist, grocery stores, whatever wouldnt be able to survive. So yes, I do think it is ridiculous to pay to use a beach.

  10. August 28, 2013 at 2:30 AM

    Wow, I come from a country where going the beach is a rite – we have some national parks with a fee. To be charged $5 to wade into nature is outrageous!

    In Italy we pay to use the beach, even though EU law forbids it. The beaches around here cost anything from 10€ a day to about 50!!!! Per person! And those that hold the ‘beach rights’ pay pittance for the state in rent and taxes! But, if you go on a ‘private beach’ in Italy you have a sun lounger, umbrella, bathrooms and bars (cafes).

    TMZ is fastly becoming my most hated sight, nothing but gutter snipe and the commenters are no better. Some vile and disgusting comments on all their posts!

      also why do I hear a southwest commercial being played over her? I’m not complaining, but sounds like there’s another audio feed going on at the same time. Unfortunately it doesn’t drown out her godawful voice.

      Thanks for sharing this!

      • August 28, 2013 at 7:30 AM

        Would the commercial, and subsequent songs, be playing because that’s what was actually playing on the radio while meho was caterwauling oops sorry singing? It would make sense, it also means that the radio station can’t be sued in a class action for criminal damage to its listeners…….

    • August 28, 2013 at 3:05 AM

      Lemon what did we ever do to deserve this? That was torture!!

      I also have a tomcat under my window now waiting for what he obviously thought was a cat in heat to come out……..

      And she dares to call herself a ‘singer’. More like a minger……but I’m sure shell come out with a spin like ‘I had a sore throat and had been on morphine drip the night before but didn’t want to let my fans down’

      Lol

      • August 28, 2013 at 5:10 AM

        Melissa not only dares to call herself singer but she fights so much with Teresa over this and now we know what was Teresa talking about – pure lack of voice and talent on Melissa’s side!

        and Andy – shame on you (again) for protecting Melissa and this whole accusing Teresa that for it’s never good enough after previous reunion – now dear Andy u can hear what great singer u have! Embarassment !!!!

        I think I even prefer Kim Zolciak with her whole delusional xxl persona than Melissa acting proffesional like she has real carieer talking crap about people who work with her, that work with Acon or Jackson and many others …
        These people KNOW Melissa that u can’t sing.
        This is your REAL voice and REAL lack of talent and don’t even try to blame it on sore throat or stuff like that – we know u were in your best form that day, don’t even try….
        U can’t sing, just own it (yeah I’m dreaming) !

      • August 28, 2013 at 9:27 AM

        I live in upstate NY and have never had to pay, but some places do charge for parking per car. NY is one of the only states (maybe THE only) that still has toll roads so I guess they make up for revenues there( thank god for ezpass, but I don’t know a worse feeling than being almost to a toll booth and realizing you have no $ or change!!!! Ahhhh!)
        Every state has it’s “stuff” I suppose? I was in LA in 2010 and recall having to pay for parking @ Venice Beach and the Santa Monica Pier…

    • Saddle_River_NJ
      August 28, 2013 at 9:10 AM

      Not every beach has a fee. On the Jersey shore individual towns have turned their beaches into money makers. The beaches are really beautiful and we are super close to New York City. There are areas like Sandy Hook that are part of the Federal Parks System and they are free, but you have to pay for parking. The municipalities usually have limited metered street parking and charge for access to the beaches. Some towns charge as much as $10 a day – yet down in the Wildwoods the beaches are free. It’s also helpful to understand the New Jersey mindset on beaches (helps to explain the term Shore Whore). In the Tri-State (NY, NJ, CT) area people tend to head for specific areas. New Yorkers tend to head for beaches in Brooklyn or Long Island. In Jersey there are several types of people. There are folks who live in the Northern Suburbs and have a second home at the shore. Then people who rent. Then day trippers. Then there are the local beach residents. Some are quite wealthy and commute to New York on the North Jersey Coastline train. There is also the element that Our Little Harlot harkens from. The trashy shore folk. Other Jersey-ites will probably know what I’m talking about. Anyway – what I’m trying to say is that there is a distinct culture that can be described as “Jersey”. It’s complex and unfortunately the ROHNJ only skims the surface. Another poster had mentioned never seeing the beauty that is NJ. Quite true. While our state has always seemed to fall in the shadow of NYC, it is and extremely diverse and beautiful area. And to folks from outside the US, it is also helpful to understand that there are distinctions between our individual states in terms of culture, language and mindset that can sometimes be really obvious or sometimes subtle. I seem to be rambling here, most likely from a lack of caffeine….

      The biggest upset we’ve had here in Los Angeles is that they recently banned frisbees on the beach because they don’t want people getting hit in the head…could it have been that much of a problem? Weird stuff. I think it’s $1000 fine if they catch you throwing a frisbee. So stupid.

    For the record its $5/per person for those over the age of 12. Weekly beach passes are $20/per person or you can buy seasonal passes for $30 (pre-season) or $40 per person. Seniors pay $5 for a season pass.

    Prices may vary from beach to beach and there are several free beaches as well lest you think the entire jersey shore requires payment.

    An FU in Jersey made this girl cry? That is the State’s official word…this chick needs to grow a thicker skin if she is going to be in service with the public.

    I was 12 yrs old when I had a mother tell me to “go f yourself” because I wouldn’t put soda in a baby bottle. It rolled off me like water off a duck. I KNEW I was right (let HER put it in the bottle – I was NOT going to be a party to it) and in knowing I was right gave me all the confidence I needed not to be intimidated by her verbal assault.

    That being said – if they are charging 5 per head at “public” beaches and there are probably 500-100 people on the beach on a good weekend those beaches should be immaculate and there should be gorgeous bathrooms etc.

    I may have let an F bomb fly if I had JUST paid $150.00 5 minutes ago down the street/beach.

    Jersey – the whole state is nothing more than a con game in every aspect.

      I turned it off before she was finished. A few words that I was able to muster was sad, awkward, and tragic. I don’t like this woman and I was embarrassed for her.

      • August 28, 2013 at 12:32 PM

        That was horrendous! Absolutely dreadful! She’s kind of bossy with the crowd, too, “Stand Up!”. Then she says, “Come on I wanna see some dancing.”. I think I seen a middle aged women sway side to side while clapping! I’m hoping Tsil reads this blog so she will know that even some of us who think she’s a gawd awful person felt embarrassed for her! I had to shut it off because it just wasn’t funny anymore! It makes me feel sad that her three kids have a mommy who CAN NOT sing! She is so arrogant and egotistical that she doesn’t realise that she’s kind of a laughing stock right now! Tsil, go home and take care of your kids. Hang up the mic and throw away your dance shoes, it’s just not your calling! I think I might watch that one lady dancing in the audience one more time. Bless that ladies heart for trying to make an egotistical witch feel like a world class singer!

      she is use to singing under the actual finished music track that is blasting over her when she is performing live. guess she thinks no one hears her.. but it’s been caught on video before and even with the music blasting you can still hear how bad she is naturally.

        Do you think she thought they were auto-tuning it when she was singing? She wasn’t nervous to get up and sing. I wonder if Andy will say anything at the reunion…so embarrassing!! There have been so many accusations put out there about her and she always denies it but this is one thing I don’t know how she will explain it…I’m just loving it!!

    This is one of the most sickening photos of fameWHOREJoeyGorga I’ve ever seen – and theres been many. Along with the #can’tstop her BS about VMA attending Melissa. The fake pose/the poochy lips/intense stare…obviously practiced for hours/days/weeks/years. Yeah, I agree as others have said, that he’s “dumb” and being manipulated etc…Katfishvoice,,,BUH…his treachery in all of this…his brazen desire for fame…his dumbazz belief that he or his Shore Skank are or will ever be “famous” are all written there on his 70′s porn star fake face in that pic.

    He’s despicable.

    I couldn’t make it thru the performance/song.

      That video is so funny. I didn’t watch the interview just the attempt at singing. Whatever that was. Yeah and the small audience was so enthused to see her they barely clapped when he announced her. The one lady in the audience half dancing. Lol. I mean come on, she is way worse than I thought she was. Now I’m thinking the other times she was definitely lip syncing because that was godawful. How can she even be serious with this shit? It’s like a joke. Sounds like a bad karaoke performance, actually worse than that because people singing karaoke are just doing it for fun, she is trying to act all serious about it. She can’t dance or sing, the backup dancers? Wtf. She is stupid. I read at SH that Danielle staub might be back next season. I really hope so.

      • August 28, 2013 at 4:58 PM

        She’s horrible, worse than I even imagined.

        Danielle is on the season premier of WWHL … I believe 9/8. I’m not expecting much from her, what does she really have to offer and if she has stuff Mandy won’t let her show it.

    This is total BS Bravo DID take them to the VMA there were a couple of girls from Eat Drink Love and they even did shots of two of them during the awards. Granted that these women are professional chefs, but still, some of them are bloggers too. I do believe that they got invited by Bravo or else how would they have gotten in. I believe that Johnny Wright got TSIL’s sisters tickets because they are cling ons and want to live through their sister like -TSIL and Stump through T- because they think its a right. Jac did not get invited because she is IRRELEVANT! The only relevant women from the franchises are NeNe and Teresa, that is it. These women NEED to get over themselves and realize that without the RH franchise they are NOBODY, I think that is the reason for Tre’s little empire, she knew it wouldn’t last so why not capitalize on it while she could….

    By the way, I know this is old, but if there are rumors about me going around town, I would certainly want my SIL to let me know. I wouldn’t say she is making it up. Loyalty= her telling you. If she doesnt tell you and is hearing it and maybe talking it behind your back then you got a problem.

    “rockyroad: Reading comments on famewhorgas. I can’t take it….Do these people walk among us?”

    “CeeJay > rockyroad
    You cannot argue with stupid Rocky. There’s just no sense in trying. That blot is a hoot and a half to read if only to realize how gullible and deniable people can be.

      I have seen these bloggers too, we are the stupid ones, ever see how they turn on each other? It is disgusting, name calling, very immature. Sometimes they go off on tangents badmouthing and insulting each other. They can read but not comprehend, no one here is saying Teresa and Joe are innocent, just give them a chance to prove their case. Fame states the facts (as she knows it) and we give our opinions, simple as that. They are a Teresa hate sight, for the most part. I am not gullible or in deniel, I didn’t even like Teresa at first, I know she is in trouble and is far from perfect, but I also think people are too hard on her. She will suffer for her misdeeds, no need to kick a person when they are down. I hope she rises like a phoenix.

        Good post, dookie56. Allabouttrh is a good site too, if you’re not a fan of the Gorgas. There are people who post nasty stuff about Teresa, but I think they get their kicks out of antagonizing those who support her. You don’t get that nastiness here. I am a relatively new poster, but it’s a very friendly atmosphere here. Stoopid Housewives can be funny at times, but very catty. The Bravo site is a hoax. It should be called the Land of Make Believe.

    Kinda off topic but this “new” Tre didn’t pay the fertility specialist. I haven’t read any of the articles because I guessed it was old news from the original bankruptcy. Oh and reality tea did an article saying Tre lied about the invite to the VMA’s. I disagree. I am sure she is getting lots of invites due to the press dying for a reason to interview her about her current legal drama. I can see them inviting Tre to bring Gia under the guise she has a tweener but really with alternate motives. Tre and Juicy are the new Brad/Jen/Angelina of tabloid reporting. I imagine TSIL’s heading spinning in circles while venom spews out. I am sure her and Joe will be at the beach Labor trying to find someone to argue with over beach fees. Maybe if she sings they will pay her to leave the beach.

    Listening to Meli-Syphilis “sing” I am reminded of several things:

    William Hung on American Idol
    Nails on a blackboard
    Yoko Ono
    A cat in heat

    It must be nice to live in an alternate reality where that running sore of a whore can imagine she is a role model for marriage. A world where she imagines she has talent (other than those “on display” in a parking lot). And one where that wretched screetching is considered “singing”. Delusional doesn’t even begin to explain the Spray Tanned Putana…

  34. August 28, 2013 at 11:29 AM

    Melissa is a sad, sad example of a fool who surrounds herself with fools to prop up her feeble attempt to create a singing career. I find it very ironic that her niece Gia sings, writes lyrics, dances, acts and dresses better than her tia Melissa. No wonder the skank hangs up on her and won’t allow her uncle and godfather spend quality time with her.

      The thing behind Itunes voting and promoting. This technic is right up Marcos alley

      “Next you will use your accounts to vote for the iMixes you create and also vote for other iMixes that you like. Vote for your own iMixes using your other profiles. iMixes that begin to pick up votes rise to the top where other buyers will begin to respond to them and purchase your iMixes.

      A Note about iMix voting:
      People who are key users who are also heavily promoting their own music sometimes can be competitive. They may try to vote your iMixes down so that the iMixes that they have created rise to the top.

      “These profiles are totally separate and they are not interconnected so this gives you five individual profiles that you can register and you can use each one to help promote your music. One of the profiles you create can be you but the other 4 will be created to help you promote yourself.”

    We all know she cheated! Her own bridesmaid sold her out. There were several witnesses there that night at the Sushi Lounge.

    Blowing her Ex in the parking lot while married is a GREAT storyline for Bravo and this could end up in much higher ratings and a new “long-term” narrative and story that viewers would gravitate to.

    If Tre is possibly going away, you would think Bravo would be all over this considering the RHONJ is on the ropes.

      It will all somehow be Teresa’s fault ;-)

      Sorta looked like TSIL didn’t confront Jan to her face in fear of what it would provoke Jan to spontaneously spill out in a reaction. Same with Penny TSIL was so withdrawn confronting them playing it safe not to provoke them. baffled awkward why she didn’t get in their faces about it when Jan and Penny were right there. Knowing Tre is not going to say anything or doesn’t know is a a safer target to attack. Lame

      Bravo is letting Melissa claim that these cheating rumors came about “all of a sudden” to coincide with her book deal, as if she was being sabotaged. Im watching thinking, “Ive known about the Sushi Lounge thing for YEARS now!” Theres just so much to the fake storylines this year I cant take it. I barely watch.

      I have been off for awhile renovating the great room,but we have the WHOLE house trashed plus school starts this tues. oh the trials of parent hood
      hope all are well,i sure miss all and will be back soon ,oh and someone hacked my aol acc

      • August 28, 2013 at 10:14 PM

        No Miss Celi, I haven’t seen Jeannie on for a bit. I believe her momma’s service was today so I don’t expect that she will be on today or maybe even for a few days. Not sure about Jackie.

        I haven’t been too focused on this either. We had a power failure at our campsite and there was fish in the camper freezer. OH MY LORD. My husband did the first two initial cleanings and wouldn’t even allow me in the camper (not that I was begging or anything…). The last 3 nights have been spent cleaning that hot mess up. There were these little wormy things stuck in the condenser coil thing (and everywhere else) and I had to blast them out with my steamer about 500,000 times. It’s super clean now but a slight odor still in the freezer. I have it turned off with coffee grounds in there so hopefully that will take care of it. If not, it’s not too bad and will be okay for this weekend. We are camping for the weekend and our 23rd anniversary is on Sunday. Woo hoo!!

        Renovations are such a pain in the butt…so worth it though in the end!! Hopefully everything goes smoothly! Hope the kids enjoy their new school year!! Glad mine are out of school…I don’t miss those crazy mornings and all the homework! The kids around here started last week or the week before. Too early in my opinion!

          I talked to ms jeannis down thread earlier and she did sent her sweet mama off today and id say the LORD n our onjo met her cus she said a dragonfly lit in front of her today,onjo is so sweet an is very kind
          my I hope you have a great camping trip.you all have a wonderful time and love each for 23 more yrs

          • August 29, 2013 at 2:49 PM

            I saw that after I posted my comment. Sounds like Jeannie’s momma had a beautiful send off! And how precious that Onjo must have sent that dragonfly as a sign for the two of you that Jeannie’s momma is in good hands!

            Thank you for the well wishes. I am not looking forward to camping much…it is supposed to be sweltering here this weekend! We are only 15 minutes away, so I will probably come home during the day and clean (or do ANYTHING) in the air conditioning and let all the men and kids sit in the creek and broil. I’m a big ol’ sissy!!

    While I agree with many things you say about reasons Melissa and Kathy came on the show and about bravo’s complicity is making this show so toxic, you all have to admit that if Teresa is guilty of these crimes, she should be punished. Right?

    • August 28, 2013 at 4:07 PM

      Yes Wilbur, I believe they should get their day in court. If proven guilty, then yes they do the time as determined by the Court.

      • Silvana
        August 29, 2013 at 4:13 AM

        I was watching Mobwives and it seems that Carla’s husband committed many of the same crimes that the giudices are being charged with and he got 6 or 8 years.

    • GPM
      August 28, 2013 at 4:53 PM

      But Wilbur, surely you must admit that assuming someone is guilty simply because you’re not a fan and then trying them in the press instead of a court of law is beneath contempt?

      • Wilbur
        August 28, 2013 at 9:28 PM

        There are some facts that are hard to argue if you read the charges. Taxes were not filed for four years. That is a serious crime. There are copies of forged W2s and fake paystubs that she presented to the bank and she signed the applications in person ( when closing on a mortgage, you must be present and in be in front of a notary) for jobs that didn’t exist. That will be very difficult for her to defend. The perjury is also very serious and she had a chance to fix that in her bankruptcy filing.

        When she filed her papers, she left out several sources of income, her book advance, her bravo raise and her website earnings along with rental income from property in her name. The bankruptcy trustee caught these errors along with other that involved joe (missing cars, a boat, income, etc but let’s just stick with Teresa for now). The trustee had joe and Teresa appear in court to answer questions on these errors. Please note that they already committed perjury by filing false info on the filing but they had a chance to correct the record. Teresa, at that point, could have apologized for the errors and said she was confused about the dates of the cookbook advance or the website income or the raise. She may have relieved a slap on the wrist but at least the record would have been fixed going forward. The trustee even gave her the correct dates (we are talking a year off, not days or weeks) and she doubled down and chose to, as the Feds see it, commit another act of perjury. It was dumb and that’s what puts you in prison. They gave her a chance and she didn’t take it.

        Sorry for the long response but you asked if I feel she deserves her day in court and of course I do. Do I believe she is guilty? I do and I also know by experience that the govt. has a 95% conviction track record and they don’t bring these cases unless they have the goods. And I also know for a fact that having 4 children doesn’t amount to a hill of beans when it comes to the Feds and prison for these types of crimes. Lauren hill has 6 kids and she went to prison for 1 count of tax fraud. Single mom with an infant. Feds don’t care. Jesse Jackson jr and wife were just sentenced for less serious crimes and used children as an excuse to keep mom out of jail. Federal judge who happened to be a woman told them that they should have thought of their kids when they were committing the crimes. Ouch! So I predict a very long prison sentence for both. It’s terrible that these kids will probably be grown when their parents get out nut these things happen to no reality stars every day.

        • lalala
          August 28, 2013 at 11:41 PM

          I’m curious where the 95% conviction rate stat comes from? Can u link?

          • Wilbur
            August 29, 2013 at 12:11 AM

            Heard it many times but where I remember it recently was on HLN with interview with former federal prosecutor who has prosecuted these types of crimes. My spouse has also confirmed and he is part of this process which is why I have such a interest. I have been listening to IRS and mail, wire fraud, perjury issues for many years over the dinner table. You know how it is when you ask, how was work today and they answer.

        • GPM
          August 29, 2013 at 12:02 AM

          The charges are allegations, Wilbur, not facts.

          Willful failure to file a tax return is a misdemeanor under Internal Revenue Code Section 7203; it is only elevated to a felony when it can be proven that tax evasion was the intent. (If, for example, someone filed a return but left off a significant amount of income — like those 3,000 taxpayers with overseas bank accounts, for example, that the Justice Department didn’t criminally prosecute.)

          No evidence has been presented that Teresa or Joe forged W2s or fake paystubs; it’s possible their loan officer did that in order for the loan to go through. It’s also possible that Joe submitted the paperwork to the bank and Teresa didn’t even know about it. And it’s difficult to establish that there was criminal intent when a blue collar immigrant with a GED and his ditzy and obedient wife were following standard industry practice and the instructions of a loan officer who had the ability to verify everything but chose to verify nothing.

          You would think that a notary would ensure that Teresa was present and signing the loan applications — but then again, you would also think Teresa would have been present when her signature on her Power of Attorney was notarized as well, but that didn’t stop Joe Mastropole from notarizing what appears to be Teresa’s name signed by someone else. And anyone who’s ever signed for a mortgage knows you’re asked to sign a lot of papers when you close, papers with a lot of small print that you aren’t provided with ahead of time to review. You sit and sign and rely on the loan officer who does this for a living.

          There were 60 pages of bankruptcy schedules related to Teresa and Joe’s bankruptcy and bankruptcy court rules require that they be submitted electronically. Teresa would have only actually signed a two-page petition that included only summary totals of the items set out in the 60 pages filed electronically.

          The bankruptcy judge believed Teresa’s testimony that she knew nothing about the Mastropole note and that the signatures on it purporting to be hers were not. There’s no evidence that she didn’t testify to the truth as she knew it at the time and all a person is obliged to do is testify to the best of their knowledge and belief.

          And as to the Justice Department’s much-vaunted 95% conviction rate, that goes down to 66% when you factor out plea bargains. Tre and Joe have a 1 in 3 chance of prevailing in front of a jury. And good luck finding 12 jurors in NJ who have never signed a document without reading it, signed at their spouse’s behest, or trusted a spouse who did something behind their back.

            August 29, 2013 at 12:26 AM

            I agree, GPM. These days, you can perform a mortgage/refi online. The formal documents are then sent to you for signature with notarization required. We refinanced without a lawyer present…signed all the docs, had them notarized…et voila, a refinance. FYI, I have witnessed many documents notarized without both parties present. I’m sure this practice was rampant during the mortgage boom.

          Here in Jersey plenty of people close on mortgages without a notary being present. Most transactions are done with your attorney. Virtually no one in this state closes a loan without an attorney. I can’t speak for the process in other states, but I am quite well versed in how it goes around here. IN Jersey, your attorney is fully aware of all documentation you have submitted. You repeat what was was detailed in the charges as if you personally have inspected the documents in question. You may *believe* in her guilt, but people who might have some involvement in the legal profession would beg parse the discrete differences between belief, evidence and conviction. I wouldn’t predict anything at this point other than things can have a way of taking suprising turns when you least expect them to

    • GPM
      August 28, 2013 at 5:28 PM

        I do and I believe if any of the others did anything wrong, they will be charged. My spouse is a govt. investigator and they do not play favorites. If there is evidence of a crime, they will be charged. There is no team Teresa or team Melissa as far as the justice dept. goes.

        • GPM
          August 28, 2013 at 11:37 PM

          So-called “liar’s loans” ultimately comprised nearly 50% of all mortgages made. The volume was so great that the FBI actually testified before Congress in 2004. Congress it appears, like the Justice Department, is very good at ignoring evidence of crime when it suits the millionaire bankers who profit from it.

          And of the many, many people who either made these false representations themselves or whose loan officers completed the false paperwork for them, for some reason the Justice Department is generally only prosecuting a few, specifically the ones who are on TV.

          It appears to me the Justice Department is Team PR — perhaps trying to make up for the 3,000 taxpayers who were not criminally prosecuted for hiding billions of dollars in overseas bank accounts in a deliberate attempt to evade taxes — or perhaps Team Governor’s Mansion/White House! (I’m thinking, of course, of NJ’s former U.S. Attorney, Chris Christie.)

          But it’s good to see that you agree with me that Chris Laurita should be charged, having had his own lawyers admit to the bankruptcy court that he perjured himself, hid evidence and lied about it.

Is it derailed on was it even on the tracks?

And this is one of the things that he’s going to be the first guy to stand up and say, “I believe in this and we’re going to continue to do this moving forward and I’m going to be one of the first ones to do it.” You’ll see a lot of that happening with the different platforms and opportunities that Myspace will give to other artists and emerging artists. Justin will take a big role in introducing a lot of those things as the site goes live and it becomes official.”

    TSIL you always say you work with Johnny Wright. Can you say I signed with an amazing manager, Johnny Wright. Listen to Katelyn Rose who does say she is signed with Johnny. I can only imagine what Johnny has in mind for VMAs if you and TB are going to be onstage next year. If one can’t get noticed with a voice, one must get noticed like Miley Cyrus. Whatever will you do to top that? lol

    Johnny Wright invited TSIL and her family to his mansion, and the VMA awards ,and allegedly bought her home. Why is he concentrating on an artist that flopped in the music industry? Remember when Teresa said TSIL will dump TB, for a rich man she might meet in the music industry?

    • August 28, 2013 at 5:17 PM

      Johnny Wright has a very good relationship with Itunes. TSIL is not going any farther than that. She is independent with no label. The video was deleted but someone who has a copy could listen and see what she said about her connection to Johnny Wright. I believe it was her publicict knowing his publicist or something like that.

      Johnny made a comment on twitter about learning so much from TSIL’s book and gave the link to read the first chapter. I do believe he owes someone a favor, There is zip about her on WEG website, no articles about her. Myspace is also bare minimum.

      I would not be surprised if she has someone waiting in the wings. Someone who will rescue her from her abusive marriage. TB is so clueless.

I’m not a betting person, but if I were, I would bet that TSIL PROBABLY started a “train” a long time ago and is still movin’ down the tracks with anyone who wants a ride and what I really would like to say is, WHY AREN’T HER SISTERS HER BACK-UP DANCERS. bwahwhahwhahwha *.*

      If she did copy someone’s song, that is copyright infringement and she can be sued! Remember Vanilla Ice “Ice Ice Baby” vs David Bowie “Under Pressure”? And just recently, Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” was challenged in court by Marvin Gaye’s family. They were saying that it is a rip off from Marvin’s classic “Got To Give It Up”. They settled in court, but MeGo should be very careful if she is copying someone else’s music. Is she that dumb? Wait…..yes, yes she is!

          Robin Thicke way to the top :
          Chapter 1: Take Marvin Gaye “Got To Give It up” and call it “Blurred Lines.”
          Chapter 2: Take Marvin Gaye “Trouble Man” and call it “Million Dollar Baby.”
          Chapter 3: Take Marvin Gaye “After The Dance” and call it “Love After War.”

    Wow! The way they’re trying to promote Melissa is a desperate cry for attention. Melissa hasn’t even had one video shown on MTV or, VH1. None of her songs has been played on the radio and you think she is going to be on the VMA’s stage next year? On what planet? Who did Melissa and Joe have to do in order to even get a manager that manages Justin Timberlake? What sexual advances worked for them? I would love some tips! The way how Johnny is promoting her is like she’s some cheap hooker (which she kind of is). Plus doesn’t the name Johnny seem like it’s a rip off name? You know, like going to a car dealership and you meet a car salesman named “Johnny” and he sells you this beautiful car but within 2 weeks you found out the car was a lemon! You bring the car to an auto-repairer and he lifts up the lid and the inside of your car is unfixable, shattered and, rotten and he later tells you that you were gypped! That’s what viewers of RHONJ is getting from Melissa. Doesn’t matter how you advertise her she will always be a broken, dirty, evil, self-absorbed, rotten person in the inside. Melissa can barely sing a note! So keep on trying to get acknowledged you will not get further than where you’re standing now. You can’t do dirty deeds and expect good deeds to come your way. You know….Maybe if you [Melissa] would just admit that you had a “bad year” and say I’m sorry that I hurt you than maybe people will believe you’re not a fame-whoring monster in law. Get OVER yourself.

    I think the radio station was maybe asked to hold off on releasing Melissa’s radio show video where she sings to coincide with whatever Bravo has up their sleeves for Melissa’s story line right now. Everything seems to be timed to try to get Melissa a good edit and it’s all to sell that idiotic book she has out.

    I tried to view and listen to it on stoopid housewives, but the video was removed from youtube before I could listen and apparently, it is not available anymore on here. I’m guessing Melissa is embarrased by her non auto tuned voice and all the bashing she got from those who did get to hear it?

    Or, was it Bravo’s intention to release it, wait til all the criticism came on the blogs, then remove it to get us all talking about her? This whole show, storyline is freakin’ bizzare! I don’t even watch anymore, just come to the blogs to get the latest info. Bravo knows they can gauge viewer response / opinion from the blogs and twitter, so I think they are editing as they go along, as each episode airs since we have been seeing Melissa with her new lighter hair on her talking head, JoeGo acting like the black hairspray was funny and not embarrasing in his talking head, etc.

  57. August 28, 2013 at 5:42 PM

      • August 29, 2013 at 2:16 AM

        I don’t think some people had seen the original singing and they thought just the autotune one existed. I didn’t fully read the blog at first and just skipped to the comments because i thought i was on the link of the bad singing blog, when I was reading them people were like ‘this is awful’ ‘auto tune blah blah blah’ then someone wrote that it wasn’t what they heard this morning I was like hmmmm.

        I went back up to the blog and realised I wasn’t on the same link – it pointed out that the video had been removed by the user and that this one was now uploaded. I was like woah that is a completely different sound. So I came back to this page and clicked the video and it was totally removed. Not that I mind never hearing her sing – loosest possible use of the word sing – live ever again, but it’s not right to try and lie to your ‘fans’ (or the delusional 12 people who buy her iTunes songs).

        • August 29, 2013 at 2:20 AM

          At least two copies have been removed so far. I just embedded the link to another copy on youtube. It’s the video at the top of this blog. It probably will be removed soon.

          TMZ picked up on a non-story about the Giudice’s friends arguing with a beach fee collector, but haven’t reported a thing about Melissa singing off key, very badly. Melissa is a D-lister, not even a blip on the radar, so they can’t be bothered, that would be my guess.

    I think Johnny Wright was paid by Bravo to be part of Melissa’s storyline. I just can’t imagine someone who represents a real star who is as talented as Justin Timberlake would be associated with the likes of her. Same thing with Chris Judd.

    If this Johnny Wright is honestly promoting Melissa, why isn’t her music videos playing all over MTV and VH1 and why isn’t she performing in REAL television programming and not just on Bravo? Let’s see her perform live on the Today show outside at Rockefeller Center without the autotune. I wanna see that!

    Also, if the new auto tuned video is on youtube and replaced the un auto tuned one, I hope that people will call her out in the comment section under the video on youtube.

    • August 28, 2013 at 8:52 PM

      I’m liking your comments, Tulip. You posted something earlier that I was shaking my head, “yes”, to while reading it! I didn’t think about Johnny Wright being involved in the “Tsil is a talented singer/song writer/dancer” conspiracy! That does sound plausible. I do remember reading an interview Tsil did and she was bragging that Johnny Wright only managed Justin Timberlake and decided to take her on, too! Do you know if that’s true? Does Mr. Wright only manage J.T. and Tsil? Hmmmmm…..I’m going to have to research this Johnny Wright and see if he has any connection to anything RHONJ. Andy, maybe? A producer? Things just aren’t adding up. Tsil can’t sing or dance. Period. End of story. So, why does a popular producer with a famous, talented client, J.T. want with Tsil when there are younger, prettier, more talented performer’s out there? Performer’s that can make him millions of dollars? I’ll say that Tsil is a liability to Johnny. It doesn’t help his career backing a talentless HW from NJ with a penchant for lying and doing ex’s in a parking lot!

    Teresa Giudice To Get Financial Help From New York Bar
    August 28, 2013 06:20 PM EDT
    Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe are facing a whole slew of charges following what is being reported as a fraudulent bankruptcy filing. The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple claims to be innocent and have hired top lawyers to help them beat the charges; however, it won’t be easy and it won’t be cheap. Luckily, Teresa is getting some help from a local bar near her home.

    According to new report, the Malibu Oyster Bar is hosting a fundraiser to help Teresa out with her growing legal bills.

    “We believe Teresa will be vindicated soon but in the meantime, we are collecting funds to aid her defense,” a restaurant spokesperson said. “She has four young children who desperately need her in their lives.”

    Teresa and Joe have likely already spent tons of money putting this case in the hands of top professionals and since their freedom and involvement in their children’s lives is on the line, they will surely continue to spend any money needed in order to maintain their freedom.

    In return, Teresa is scheduled to appear at the Malibu Oystery Bar tomorrow night, August 29, which she tweeted about earlier today. “Come see me at Malibu Oyster Bar in Long Island I will be there from 7:30 to 8:30pm,” she wrote.

    Hopefully, the bar can give Teresa the help she needs with her upcoming trial.

      • August 28, 2013 at 9:01 PM

        Yes, I agree, RVC. I’m surprised Teresa is trying to raise money from fans for her defense. The Giudices should downsize by selling the mansion, vacation homes, luxury cars, etc. before asking for donations. No one who is buying designer clothes/shoes/bags, taking vacations, etc. should be asking people to give them cash to help with money fraud charges. That’s insane.

        It’s interesting that Teresa’s tweet and the poster don’t mention that the restaurant is trying to raise money for her defense and any restitution.

        A group of bartenders and staff from a legendary Long Island beach resort and catering facility are collecting donations to support the legal defense of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice.

        They are seeking donations from compassionate fans of the reality TV star, who has four young children.

        The group is dedicated to helping Teresa … pay any fines or other restitution that Teresa and Joe are ordered to pay.

        “I am committed to my family and intend to maintain our lives in the best way possible, which includes continuing my career,” stated Teresa Giudice.

          • August 28, 2013 at 9:26 PM

            I don’t want her to go to jail either, but I’m sure she has the funds to pay for her defense. Her income must be well over $1 million per year. She doesn’t need to live in a 10,000 SF home along with all the other luxuries – if she needs money, downsize and ask Bravo for a raise. There are truly poor and needy people in the world – the Giudices don’t need charity.

            If this story is true, it sound like Teresa doesn’t want to use her own money to pay restitution and attorney fees – it sound likes she wants to use other people’s money so she doesn’t have to give up her life of luxury. Isn’t that how she got into this mess in the first place. She needs to be careful because the feds are still watching her.

              I agree with you fame. This is going to lose her some fans. She needs to show that she is trying to help herself before she starts asking for handouts from others. She is still driving her Mercedes and has her vacation home. Selling off some of her designer bags and jewels would at least show her taking some responsibility. If anything, this is a bad PR move. Her fan base is not rich but middle class and they need their money for their own bills. Your post was excellent.

              August 29, 2013 at 7:21 AM

              My first thoughts were similiar. But I don’t think the Giudices can make any financial movements, however small, until the courts have had their say.

              Their lawyers have probaly advised them against selling any assets until the bankruptcy issues are settled. As for the Benz, it’s probably leased. As for the smaller luxury items, if they were purchased prior to the BK filing, selling them off is a no-no. She may be still using the items she purchased before the BK, but i don’t think she is making any large purchases these days.

              Once the courts have sorted out their financial mess, then you will see their assets sold off. Her creditors and the courts will decide how the funds are distributed. The issue of resistitution will come into play after they are found guilty (I think it’s safe to say they will be).Teresa’s lifestyle will be changing in a very big way in the next year or two.

              I do agree, that from a PR perspective they are not handling things well (note to Teresa – put the luxury items in your closet for awhile). But given the fact that prision is looming for both of them, I’m sure their image is not the primary concern.

              I don’t say this to justify their actions – they are in this mess because of their own stupid decisions. But I can’t help to think about all of the criminals in the boardrooms that will never be called upon to account for their actions.

              I never bet against people like Teresa – she’s a fighter.

              • August 29, 2013 at 1:22 PM

                Because of a lawsuit filed by the federal bankruptcy court trustee, in 2011 Joe and Teresa dropped their bankruptcy petitions in order to prevent “further inquiry or litigation” and so that she wouldn’t have to “make any further admissions.”

                http://www.nj.com/entertainment/celebrities/index.ssf/2011/12/real_housewives_of_new_jersey_108.html

                They, at one point, had their home in the Poconos on the market (I don’t know if this is still the case). If they need funds to pay for legal fees, I can’t see why they would be advised not to downsize by selling the mansion and shore house. This makes the most sense to me. The furniture and luxury items will resale for only a fraction of what they paid, so they are non issues. I don’t know how many vehicles they have and whether they’re leased – if they’re not, then they should be sold if they are struggling financially. Jewelry should be sold since they can get a good price for gold, silver and diamonds. Vacations need to be put on hold.

                The last thing the Giudices should be doing is asking others to pay their fines, attorney fees and future restitution. It’s like asking others to sacrifice before they do.

                From a comment I posted on March 13, 2013:

                The Giudices still have open judgments against them for:

                1. Joe’s former business partners, Joseph Mastropole and Frances Mastropole ($255,000)
                2. PSEG (Public Service Electric and Gas) ($60,142.16)
                3. Burrell Humphreys, lawyer ($6,219.98)
                4. North Hudson I.V.F. for fertility treatments ($11,310.59)

                I don’t know about their investment properties… Teresa said they sold them (some or all, I don’t know) and settled the mortgages with the banks (could have been short sales).

                  I’m confused – Is this something the staff decided to do on their own for Teresa, or was this appearance for the purpose of raising money for her defense?

                  • August 29, 2013 at 2:14 PM

                    I’m confused too Calypso. Teresa’s tweet and the ad for the event don’t say anything about the fundraising, but the press release from the Oyster Bar clearly states they are trying to raise money for her defense, fees, restitution.

                    I just noticed that the press release includes:

                      I would probably give this effort a little bit of side eye, Fame.

                      Most tellingly to me, the PR Release refers to “Malibu Beach Club” — but the name of the place where Teresa is appearing is actually the “MaliBlue Oyster Bar.”

                      In addition, at the bottom of the PR Newswire release it references the “Teresa Giudice Legal Defense Fund at 646-571-3131.

                      In June of 2013 that telephone number was associated with the name “Adam Mazur” in another PR Newswire release headlined “An Innovative Approach to Neck Surgery.” (http://www.kxxv.com/story/22553025/an-innovative-approach-to-neck-surgery)

                      On June 25, 2013 it was associated with a Candlelight Vigil and Free Luncheon at Nino’s Italian Restaurant “in honor of the untimely passing” of James Gandolfini. (http://www.kxxv.com/story/22553025/an-innovative-approach-to-neck-surgery)

                      On May 30, 2013 it was associated with the name “Gino Veneroso” and yet another PR Newswire release headlined “New Survey Finds Popular Priced Alexis Vodka Comparable To ‘Premium’ Brand Grey Goose” (http://online.wsj.com/article/PR-CO-20130531-909518.html)

                      On May 6, 2013 it was associated with a PR Buzz release headlined “Cinco de Mayo 2103 to be celebrated in New York City and Long Island with Dorado Tequila”

                      On April 4, 2013 it was associated with the name “Ken Cohen” in an announcement of a noon meeting as follows: “Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender activists and Paul Hurley of the United Restaurant and Tavern Owners Association hold news conference calling for a ban of Russian food and liquor in response to anti-gay laws; Desmond’s Steak House, 513 Seventh Ave.” (http://tinyurl.com/ntb3v6y – This is a cached copy of the webpage; you have to click on Text Version in the upper right-hand side of the page to read it.)

                      There is a bit of a restaurant connection as Paul Hurley does appear to be the President of the United Restaurant and Tavern Owners of New York (http://www.urto.org/aboutus.html) as well as the beleaguered owner of Desmond’s Steak House, which appears to have opened in April of 2013 (http://tinyurl.com/nwrw6gw). And the boycott did happen. (http://abcnews.go.com/US/nyc-hospitality-association-calling-boycott-russian-made-products/story?id=19867440)

                      I have no idea if this is a legitimate effort — much less one authorized by the Giudices! — but the difference in the names of the restaurant combined with all of the different press releases and names associated with that telephone number in such a short period of time certainly makes it feel a little famewhore-y and sketchy to me.

                      It certainly gives fuel to those who are looking to disparage the Giudices, though!

                      I would hope if a TG Legal Defense Fund was created,it would be set up or supported by a legal firm and not run by wait staff. There are just too many legal risks accepting donations that aren’t properly handled.

                      I still have to wonder because in the world of Teresa’s PR/Media what’s the right move. Do you risk further public opinion by asking for money to defend yourself against these types of charges? What do you do if you are scheduled to make a paid appearance and at the last minute the staff wants to do something special for you – such as a fundraiser – and they’ve already issued a press release? Do you kindly accept and hope it doesn’t gain much attention or do you cancel? It’s a double edged sword either way.

                      Sometimes the road is paved with good intentions….. but IMO, it appears the attention for this article is focused on the club and staff. For interviews call this NYC mobile number???
                      How much $$$ could be raised during her an hour appearance with no cover?? I now have to wonder why it lacked the truly important MEDIA information – If you would like to donate to the TG Legal Defense Fund, please send your donations to??? I’m suspicious because it all seems so last minute.

                      At the moment there are still too many questions but if she is asking for money – It’s extremely shameful.

    So Funny

    “And now there is Real Housewife of New Jersey Melissa Gorga, whose new single “On Display,” attempts to tell off her critics while explaining to them that Gorga is, in fact, famous. Ugh.

    The worst in a long line of Housewives tracks, “On Display” celebrates Melissa’s shameless ploy for celebrity status, but, as if trying to awkwardly squeeze into the Rebecca Black-esque “Stop bullying me!” moment, also attempts to paint Melissa as a victim of relentless pop-culture persecution.

    “Everybody want to steal my crown,” she whines, not realizing that we, too, could spend $3.93 at Party City if we actually did want a personal princess tiara.”

    As I was shaving my pits and legs this morning, I saw with my eyes and heard with my ears TSIL’s original “performance” of her new “song”.

    I couldn’t believe my eyes and my ears, so I asked my husband to lend me his eyes and his ears and view the video.

    We immediately drove to our lawyer’s office and filed for divorce, since we clearly don’t have a hot & sexy marriage. TSIL gave “sensual” a WHOLE new meaning.

    An Irish Blessing

    May the road rise up to meet you,
    May the wind be always at your back.

    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    And rains fall soft upon your fields.

    And untl we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    My mother was laid to rest today and it was perfect in every way – exactly what was hoped for and I know in my heart she is happy. Even the threat of rain gave way to a beautiful sunny sky.

    CELI!!! I could not believe it – as I was leaving the cemetery – a dragonfly flew right in front of my windshield, hovered ever so slightly, and then flew off. I burst into tears and my husband understood as he knows your story and has seen your beautiful Onjo. It was one of two signs from angels today – I truly believe.

    I wish I could thank each and every one of you individually for your wonderful love and support. I have scrolled through every single comment in the last three articles, copied and pasted them (with updates from new ones), and have put them all in a special file. These wishes, blessings, and thoughts will be there and continue to carry me through the difficult days ahead.

    Welcome to all the new commenters and those who have come out of lurkerdom – you have added much to the conversation and are such assets!! Everyone’s thoughts, no matter how big or small, matter.

    And on a wonderful, wonderful happy new note, I am so thrilled to hear of the anticipation of new life – my very best wishes to ADIOSLUNATIC and MERI on the upcoming arrivals of their grandchilden!! What blessed and wonderful news! Please keep posting with updates. So exciting!

    I love my Fame-bly.

      Dear Jeannie. When I was in high school for one of our spring concerts we learned Old Irish Blessing and I have always loved to sing it. My high school music teacher was also my church choir director and a family friend. And he was the director of All Ohio Youth Choir, high students from all over the state. These kids went to Europe on tour each summer and had to take a nurse. They did concerts and raised money for the Red Cross and The Heart Association. Old Irish Blessing is one of the songs they sang in concert. I have such happy memories of that song and am glad you had such a beautiful day for your mom

    • August 28, 2013 at 9:04 PM

      oh my word ms Jeannie I had jus asked bree up thread if you had been on im soooooo happy onjo showed you your sweet mama is up there with her n jesus, I have been thinking of you n asking JESUS to give you n your family the strength n peace to get you throu the valley.
      I cant believe onjo will be 31 the 5th ,BUT we are closer now then we were to going home to be with her,and if I go 1st ill tell your mama you all will be along soon,and if you go 1st you tell onjo oh how we miss her and the signs are all over that she is here with us ,n we love her greatly
      we love you and we all are here for you ,blessings to you and all.

      Jeannie you made me cry reading that poem. When I would post something, lately, it felt like something was missing and I realised it was you. In years and years to come I know that I’ll have to take the same walk your taking now. I don’t know how to put this in words but your life experience right now is done so for a reason. When it’s my turn to let go of my mom or dad I’ll think of you and your mother. Of course, I’ll think of that beautiful poem. Thanks for sharing.

      Jeannie, beautiful poem and post! We have missed you the last few days and have been thinking of you. When my grandma passed away I was in another room and I remember my dad coming out and telling me Nanny was in heaven now. He said I could go in and see her and say goodbye and as I walked into the room there was a white bird sitting on the windowsill. As I walked up to my Nanny and said goodbye the bird flew off the sill into the sky as if she waiting for me before she flew off to heaven. I truly believe it was a sign from God! Know that we are all here for you and that your mom is truly dancing in heaven in her satin shoes! 😀And thank you for your excitement for my daughter expecting for the first time. She has always been my hypochondriac lol so this may be a long 7 months!

      It will be lovely but, I can’t help but wish for simpler times when you had baby/wedding showers at home and everyone cooked…now it’s venues and caterers. Oh well, perhaps when my grandbaby gets married things that are “old” will be new again, lol!

      Take care, Jeannie. Let those angels wrap their arms around you and comfort you. I can’t imagine the pain of losing your mother but, from what I can ascertain, she was very ill and now she is at peace. Many prayers for you and all who love her.

When she is spreading the ashes it a round blur covering most of her body. When she showed them to me I burst out out he was with you and then we cried for a minute.

    You notice that Johnny Wright’s top profitable client Justin Timberlake never takes a pictures with TSIL and TB, even though they share the same manager. The closets encounter with Justin was her kissing his MTV award, which was on display at Johnny’s house.She sure is spending at lot of time at Johnny’s crib, and not making him any profits. I bet Justin is thinking about changing to a Manager that invests in people with talent. Johnny Wright is treating her like should is Clive Davis’s next Whitney Houston.

    • August 28, 2013 at 11:44 PM

      I think you are right. Other people are influencing Justin

      “In March, Justin Timberlake returned to music after a seven-year absence with The 20/20 Experience. On September 30th, he will release another 11 songs from those same sessions, The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2. What prompted such a flood of new material?

      Ben Affleck.

      “We had a month prior to Justin shooting a movie with Ben, Runner Runner, so the idea was to get into a studio and see if the chemistry was there,” Timberlake’s manager, Johnny Wright, tells Rolling Stone of the sessions, co-produced by Timberlake with Timbaland and Texas hip-hop producer J-Roc. “The first thought was just a single or an EP.”

    The more I think about it – this was probably all orchestrated by Our Little Harlot herself. Look at how we have forgotten so quickly about her being a skanky back seat slut. We are all giddy about her jaw clenchingly bad howling that we have forgotten about how her legs are usually as open as her marriage.

    I finally got to see and hear what all the, ahem, hype was about with this video. It is truly bad. The reaction of the middle aged housewives in the audience was positively tepid. If the camera would have panned to their faces I imagine it would be like that scene in The Producers when Springtime for Hitler was debuted. http://daveschneider.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/TheProducers_audience-500-300×163.jpg

      TB probably had that look on his face when he first heard her sing too. He probably has earplugs handy since he goes everywhere with her. No wonder he tags along. He must know her singing is not what she is selling. He knows why she can not get a label and money is going down the drain.

    I had a chance to read Fame’s take on Andy Cohen and bravo’s staging of the housewife franchise and in particular RHONJ and I thought it was brilliant. I have to admit I loved the first season. Being an Italian American from the NE, I was taken by the food, family and family business. It brought back so many memories of growing up Italian. The entire show turned ugly and toxic when Melissa and Kathy showed up. As I learned more about motives, jealously, payback and all the ugliness coming from Melissa I was so disgusted. I also read that she begged to be on the show, she would prance in front of the camera at every opportunity, send Andy audition tapes and became a pest. Her quest for fame was remarkable. Then she did the Daniele thing and Andy Cohen being the dirtbag he is, saw a way to use her and Kathy to increase ratings by destroying an entire family on TV. He didn’t care about elderly parents or children, he only cared about ratings. So Melissa and Kathy came on and destroyed a family and long term friendships. Their motives was kill Teresa. That is why Melissa is hated. Kathy is a bump on a log so nobody cares about her. Joe Gorga is so dimwitted that he went along with his wife and caught the fame bug. Where else can a man with an IQ of 70 live like that? He doesn’t realize that she will leave him.
    I feel bad for Teresa in this way. Melissa won short term. Due to Teresa’s legal troubles, Melissa is flying high for now and I can imagine this is really hurting Teresa. The woman who fought to come on her show just to hurt her family and her friendships is riding high while she is fighting g for her life.

    Here is what Melissa knows and why she is panicking a bit. If Teresa goes away, Andy has no need for Melissa and Kathy. Their only reason to be there was to destroy Teresa. With Teresa gone, so goes Melissa and Kathy. Will Melissa get a spinoff? Not likely. She will become a Jill zarin, Alex mcCord, Lynn curtain former housewife. She can’t sing, they owe lots of money so she will disappear and be a what if.

    That’s my take.

          Have you seen this?
          https://www.jossandmain.com/Melissa-Gorga~E6681.html

          Melissa’s attempt at branding herself on a product that doesn’t exist. “Blah Blah Italian Style”

          What did she say to Joe about Teresa putting her name to everything that came along? Is she seriosuly trying to tell us that she pulled swatches and (for the faux flowers).

          Now “Love _____ Style” is from Love, American Style (I’m sure I don’t need to remind you folk of this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love,_American_Style). What has she said about the word Skinny? PS Teresa has only used the term “Skinny” once…

          I want to see some fake tan come out: “Tan, Italian Style”, some French Letters: “Protection, Italian Style”, are the going to rename their Label “Crap Music: Italian Style”. Is that furniture even Italian style? Looks more French Provincial to me. When I think Italian, I think sexy modern design – can anyone say Missoni? Leather?

          • August 29, 2013 at 1:59 AM

            PS Can she actually claim to be Italian? Controversial question – I have Italian heritage but I’m Australian. How many generations back does it have to be???? I would call Teresa Italian but I wouldn’t say Caroline is…. Am I being persnickety?

            Anyway, we know she’s playing on what Teresa and HER family has established – Skinny Italian – Italian recipes from Italians. It’s not Italian furniture: It’s American furniture based on French Provincial designs…. at best surely. Someone, tell me where it’s made!!!!!

            And another thing – I want to throw my milkshake at my screen every time I hear her tagline – I know we’ve talked about it but jeez, I want to scream “MY LITTLE SISTER INLAW COPIES EVERYTHING I DO”. Wow, that feels better: I think Teresa even had T-shirts made… awe gwad, now I’m thinking about Missy getting HER catchphrase emblazoned on shirts PLEASE! She’s a FORGAZI – and that’s as close to “Italian” as she can get apart from wearing that Versace dress – which was probably made in China.

  80. August 29, 2013 at 2:11 AM

    I can’t sing. I know it. You will never hear (with your own ears) me even try. Melissa isn’t even proficient enough to pass her lip syncing off as close to real. Her dancing looks like a yeast infection itch she is desperately trying to scratch. Why is this “pop princess career” still a storyline?
    Maybe it is time to put the link of her latest “performance” on her Bravo blog so her fans can hear (with their own ears) just what a joke she really is….

    • August 29, 2013 at 2:20 PM

    Looked up Johnny Wright on wikipedia–he’s managed everyone from the backstreet boys to Janet Jackson. NOWHERE is Melissa Gorga mentioned, btw.

    Something’s fishy! I googled and came across a good theory from an AllAboutTRH commenter posted back in June, and it makes much more sense than this guy managing Melissa because she’s a super talent:

    Andrea from Alabama says:
    June 20, 2013 at 2:21 pm
    Carrie, working with someone who thinks you’re talented/marketable and working with someone willing to take your money are two totally different things. How many assistance or interns does Johnny Wright have running around? They’re probably the ones she’s actually “working” with. Do you think he would’ve given her a chance if she wasn’t already on a hit tv show and had not already sold her soul? I’m here to tell you, it’s relatively easy to book her at the Six Flags in upstate New Jersey for her appearance fee and him to take 20 to 30 of that. TRUST ME, Johnny Wright is not working for Melissa Gorga. She’s not in an artist development workshop. Hell no, he’s shoving bull, and she’s buying it.

    Andrea from Alabama says:
    June 20, 2013 at 5:15 pm
    Thank you. I thought about Melissa “working” with Johnny Wright (whom as you’ve stated has worked the biggest and brightest YOUNG pop stars) when Ms. Lawrence Washington was going on and on about Kandi and her contracting and wanting so much. I thought to myself, the boy can hold a note, there is a market for him (in front of and behind the scenes), why wouldn’t he contact a real management company. I thought about Melissa with Johnny Wright. But then I thought about what Lawrence said. He didn’t want to be with a management company because they typically wanted artist to sign 360 deals, and he made a great living in the beauty industry.

    Now that I think about it Melissa probably receives PR services through Johnny Wright’s company (how else was she getting in those magazines that she bashed Teresa for being in), her “book deal” was probably “negotiated” through his company, she probably is fronted clothes and shoes (and cars) through Johnny Wrights company (this would be called an advance), so his percentage is probably higher than 20 to 30%. I wouldn’t be surprised, she’s so desperate.

    Johnny Wright has represented Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and all sorts of Disney stars, do you think he wouldn’t any of them even warm up to that bullshit, much less release it for profit? He probably charged her 25000$ for that song (or shall I say tacked it into her existing bill). Melissa is working for Johnny Wright, and he’s going straight to the bank.

      Andrea is making sense. They PR company is the key. People see a man who is willing to pay money for a wife who can not sing and they know he will keep on throwing money at it. She can not sing and she can not write, yet they are selling Itunes and a book.

      Thank-you for this info, Yup! I Yahoo searched Johnny Wright last night before bedtime. A lot of the info I found was from 2000! He was a judge on “Making the Band” so he knows talent when he see’s talent! Also, I read one article where he didn’t see Bruno Mars’ talent and passed up on managing him. I think that was his one regret! I guess I’ll use “google” this time around and see if I can find something interesting?

    I agree with those who think there is something strange going on with Johnny Wright, Melissa’s manager buying her house. Didn’t I read on here or somewhere that when JoeGo got the mortgage for the big mansion and the shore house and losing his father’s house in the process that the Realtor and the Loan officer were brothers or related somehow?

    This sounds very shady! Not that there aren’t realtors and loan officers out there who are related and do legitimate business, but with this bunch, things just don’t add up! I think the feds should look into JoeGo’s mortgage dealings and all those involved in the process also. After all, he learned everything he knows about that from Joe Giudice!

    Didn’t JoeGo report Teresa and JoeGu for building the “garage” apartment for their parents? I wonder if Melissa’s frenemies will have lil’ Joe investigated?

    I find it weird how Melissa said that she got tickets from her music manager for the VMAs when Teresa said on twitter everyone from the cast got tickets. Jacqueline denied getting tickets but then Melissa’s sister Lysa had photos all over her twitter with the cast of RHOM. I’m sure the Miami cast didn’t get tickets from Melissa’s manager. My guess it had to do with Bravo!

    • August 29, 2013 at 4:40 PM

      Jac-a-loon probably didn’t get any tickets, Bravo was probably in fear that she would stand up and show the crowd her bleached a$$hole and throw Miley off her game…tee-hee *.*

    Apologizing in advance that my comments are so incoherent lately – been back on brutal night shift OT and stay in constant loopy-ville. So glad to see you (with my eyes) Jeannie! Saddle has really been cracking me up – so much to laugh at. The comments here are always priceless.

    I used to like RT but its sad how 4-6 trolls have consistently ruined the comment section. Its not doing the blogger any favors to allow the spamming to go on for so long. The Whorga’s utilized social and internet media long before going on the show, it’s obvious that they comb the internet for places to disrupt and spew. If I landed on a reality show somehow, I guarantee at least 10 friends or relatives who would help me scour the internet and post either favorable things about me or advance my agenda.

    None of it translates into the only thing that matters, Dear Readers: $ale$ lol Yes, of course you can spend hours around the clock posting not really funny the first time gems like “TreApe” “Tre’s Forehead” etc etc but ****THIS JUST IN***NONE of that BS is downloading any itunes or selling any books. double lol :) I also think my planted internet friends and relatives would post awesome things like an earlier comment (Saddle?) nicknamed Joey Gorga “FLYING MONKEY HUSBAND” (I literally choked laughing to that one!) than the lame crap these posers come up with.

    Anyhoo…back to the video. How about a side by side of the cover up auto tune…the “singing” part only?

    I didn’t make it through either version…was immediately stunned by the way she “orders” the audience to GET UP. Like Flying Monkey Hub demanded applause when he introduced her.

    Are they both on crack?

All the fame whores will be slapped in the face with reality.

    • August 29, 2013 at 2:26 PM

      IMHO, Melissa believes her songs are excellent dance/club songs so why not invite the audience to get up and dance? OR she orders the audience to get up and dance so that they concentrate on getting their groove on and are hopefully not watching her pathetic attempts to JLo herself or actually listen to what is coming out of her mouth – auto tuned or not.

    I would like to post a song that is amazing, and these people actually have talent and can sing live. The song reminded me of melissa (the lyrical content). Anyway, does anyone remember when she said she was going to do it on her own and she doesnt need a label? I laughed at the comment. First of all no label wants her because they want money back from their investment. She has no talent and its too much of a liability to cover her lack of singing up. Labels arent taking too many risks because they are trying to survive themselves so they want to know for sure that their artists has a great following, what their brand is, and like their music.
    Melissas new song sounded like give me everything by pitbull at this one part of the song. She is trying to hard to sound like JLO/pitbull, she doesnt even have her own brand. sad really.
    Not that i would buy her album, but she hasnt even come out with an album yet. It took her this long to even produce five songs. Maybe instead of going to these random events, she should invest time and money in singing lessons…maybe she could improve who knows.

    I almost peed myself after checking out Our Little Skanks “Curator’s Collection” at Joss & Main. They juxtapose the pictures of her mansionette with an assorted jumble of Home Goods castoffs. I can’t believe that any serious company would associate themselves with that Genital Wart Dispenser. Did anyone think of doing due diligence?!? So I guess if I grabs some Crack Whore off the streets near the Lincoln Tunnel and ask her to randomly circle items in a Pottery Barn catalog I will have a “Curated Collection” too? What a joke…

Hell even “The Three Children of Privilege” and their sidekick Greggy are being very quiet…..mission accomplished Caroline. Remember, I hate you before I like you? Well, my take is they smelled SUCKERS with the New Zoo Review joining the cast, just look at some of the old footage, Caroline and family used the animals to their advantage.

    If the TSIL wants to be a singing star but she can’t sing, Johnny Wright, Britney Spears’ long-time manager, could be just the ticket!

    Rumors that Britney doesn’t actually sing on her own albums or in concert performances have dogged her for years.

    See:

    Crazy Days and Nights Blind Item dated November 21, 2006 that discusses a matter that began in late 2000 and suggests that, if it were to ever come out, “it would blow the music world up and shake it to its core..This would put the Milli Vanilli scandal and Ashlee Simpson SNL situation so far down the ladder it would be crazy.”

    (http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2006/11/let-me-preface-this-post-by-saying.html)

    Henry Rollins to Sun Media in 2008:

    “They have the black chick come in and sing and Britney sings over it . . . [She] gets her phrasing basically from this older R&B woman. I found that out talking to an engineer . . .
    Britney apparently isn’t actually the worst singer, she just has no feel. So they bring in this older black woman who sings the song, then Britney sings to it, and they kind of make a mix of the two voices, and that’s what you hear on the records.”

    In 2009 Australian fans walked out of Britney’s live show and demanded their money back.

    (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1226326/Australian-fans-walk-Britney-Spears-complain-lip-synching.html#ixzz2dMvcEvCm)

    Rapper Eve in February of 2013 on WWHL — I’m not kidding, on WWHL — regarding Britney’s performance on will,i.am’s single “Scream & Shout”:

    “I heard it might not be Britney. That’s what I heard but, you know, I don’t know . . . it could be Britney. But I heard it wasn’t.”

    TSIL poses a much bigger challenge for Wright, however, as she is two years older than Timberlake (who received a lifetime achievement award at the VMAs in 2013) and Spears (who received a lifetime achievement award at the VMAs in 2011). No one received the award in 2012, which could be an indicator of Wright’s influence with respect to the VMAs and his ability to get TSIL “on stage” next year but, given the fact that, unlike Spears and Timberlake, TSIL is starting with both an expired shelf life and virtually no talent which can be performed on stage, she puts Wright at risk of dumpstering his own career and credibility in the music industry. JMHO

That comment about the Johnny and the train at the beginning of the interview is not something HAPPILY MARRIED woman should NOT SAY; just because it sounds OFF, like subject to anyone’s interpretation. I have been with my husband 25years, and I am STILL madly in LOVE with him and MORE so now, and that kind of comment would be disrespectful to my husband! That phrase sounds more like CODE for “he wants some of me” and my husband is OK with me as long as we make MONEY!! But she doesn’t realize that the joke is on her…

    When Melissa was on WWHL, Andy wanted to play a game with the shark, or dance with the shark and he started playing music. Then he says the name of the song and asks them to get up and dance. Melissa starts to dance, then asks Andy, “what are we dancing to”. Andy says “it’s YOUR song Melissa”. How could she NOT know it was her own song????????? I know when my favorite song is on the radio, I usually just hear the first seconds and instantly I know that it is MY SONG, I get up, get excited and start dancing! So imagine, if you record your own SONG HOW COULD YOU NOT RECOGNIZE IT??????????

      Not precisely on point but my daughter called my cell phone in a panic one day to ask me to pray for her beloved cat, who had escaped out the front door and was nowhere to be found. She lived on a very busy street and was terrified he would be run over.

      I dropped the phone and immediately fell to my knees and prayed my heart out as the cat was very, very dear to her. And when I was done praying, I picked up the cell phone to call my mother to ask her to pray as well.

      It was when I picked up the phone to call my mother that I realized I had turned off the ringer on the cell phone the night before and there was no way that phone could have rung when my daughter called me to ask me to pray for her cat — yet ring it did.

      The cat was located up a tree and is alive to this day. And my husband and I agree that the ground where our dog was buried feels sacred somehow. I think animals go to heaven. JMHO

    I have been reading all the post today and something really disturbs me about Johnny Wright’s motives for so called taking Melissa under her wings. You guys have done a lot of research and found out that he has represented many past Disney stars. Brittany Spears being one of them.

    I have done my own research on Disney kids and how some of their lives are in ruin because of what they have experienced as child stars.

    I was thinking, what does Melissa really have to offer, we all know she is lacking in the talent department. Call me crazy but the only thing she has going for her are her beautiful children and I hope and pray that they don’t get caught up in her blind delusional quest for fame and wealth.

    I pray for all the children in this family and on the HW’s because they did not ask to be a part of them. They are only on these shows by proxy because of their parents. I am sickened and disillusioned by the way these people try to destroy each other because of their love for the limelight. I have watched and read the way this mess with Teresa is unfolding and I don’t like what I am seeing and hearing. You don’t know what to believe anymore It’s like this horrible train wreck, the casualties and the blame just keeps mounting. It is so sad.

I know I maybe a little far out there with my thinking but, “somethin’ goin’ on ’round here, round here”. “Follow the other hand”…..as Andy Cohen would say*.*

  108. August 30, 2013 at 2:22 PM

    First time posting but I have been on this site since it first started. My cousin and I used to watch RHNJ together and we would fight all the time about Meho. My cousin liked her and from the beginning i despised her. There is something so fake about her. I hate how she deflects everything on Tre. I hate that she is always saying “who asked this question or that”. What should be shown is Tre saying “yes i did ask my friends what they have heard, not because i hate u but because u are my brothers wife and i am worried about the rumors that are going around.” But instead everything is edited to be someone elses falt. It has gotten to the point that every sunday night my husband and i fight about watching RHNJ. he says that it is pointless how angry i get. He is sure my first heart attack is going to be during one of my hour long yell fests at the tv.

    As for her singing, i think bravo is grasping at straws. She is about the worst singer ever to emerge from the bravo family. She cant sing, dance or write. Why the hell was she ever added to this franchise i will never know. the only bright side of this is that little midget excuse for a man TB is going to be dumped very soon im sure of it. The fighting has begun again and i think that it has something to do with ole Johnny. HAAAAAAHAAAAA. Karma is going to be a mother sooner then later. He will come crawling back to his family. If only one of them had the common sense to tell him to fly a kite. Oh well thanks for letting me rant. Now i am part of the family and cant wait till ur next blog. Thank you fame!!!!!

      Chris is crazy, I don’t think Bravo is pulling at straws about Melissa’s real voice I think they are pulling their hair saying why did we pick her as a housewife what have we done. We’ve all heard bad singing at one time or another but it’s 100% clear Melissa can’t sing or hold a tune! This also confirms just how bad she has that migdet husband wrapped around her finger because that dumbass thinks she can really sing.
      I knew there had to be a reason Meho refused to sing at one of the reunions remember when Teresa asked her to sing alcappela (did I spell that right)? Anyways Melissa wouldn’t sing now we all know why.

      It may very well be removed by the time my comment has been approved as that’s how fast she is in hiding this video.

    I just watched the video above of Meho singing without autotune. It’s confirmed now Meho can’t sing she confirmed it herself. All I can say is she is really stuck on herself if she believes she can sing she sounds like.. well I can’t put into words! This video explains why Meho wouldn’t sing when Teresa asked to sing on one of the reunions I can’t remember which one.
    Everyone is more concerned with the 5 dollar incident that happened at the beach with Teresa than Melissa’s lies in regard to her so called singing. I’m sure there’s a few suckers that fell for her make belief singing and bought her dumb songs.

    Little Joey’s feet are so small. I’m sure everything is in proportion. The SIL really does think she’s a star. Delusion at it’s finest.
