A Whole New Level of Famewhoring!
On May 16, 2011 NJ.com asked Melissa: What was it like for you, airing your family’s dirty laundry on television?
“It was rough. It wasn’t easy. It wasn’t something any of us wanted to do. We knew most likely what was going to happen, how it was going to come out. We look at it as an incredible opportunity, that if we go in and we’re telling the truth and we stay true to who we are, hopefully we’ll come out shining.”
On April 12, 2012, Melissa told Reality Tea:
“Teresa and I were not speaking before the show. Do you think that would have happened at the Christening if we were a happy family?”
On May 6, 2012, on WWHL, Melissa said the relationship between her and Teresa was good in the beginning but hasn’t been in years. She also said that, if anything, the relationship between the two of them before she was cast on the show was worse than than it is now.
This would explain why Teresa was against her joining the show. They were feuding, but not as bad as they are now. They spent holidays and special occasions together, but nothing more. Now because of their intrusion on the show, they don’t even speak! If there were problems between them before the show, then why would Melissa join the cast, unless she had an agenda, which from the first episode she and Joe clearly had.
For Melissa to sit on Andy Cohen’s show and say that the situation isn’t any worse since filming cannot possibly be true. And, if it is true, then, obviously, both she and Joe knew full well that the situation could deteriorate even more once they joined the show. So, they made that choice to benefit themselves and didn’t care at all how it would affect Teresa and her family.
The video above has been removed from YouTube. The clip was from Regis and Kelly Live (July 1, 2011). In the episode, Regis urged NJ ‘Housewives’ Teresa and Melissa to end their feud for their parents. Here’s what The Huffington Post had to say:
Reeg stepped up Friday and got real with ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ stars Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. They’ve been feuding on the show this season, and Regis zeroed in on how the reality TV drama was affecting their real-life families, particularly Teresa and Joe Giudice’s parents.
“What do your mother and father say about this?” he asked Teresa.
“I don’t think they ever want to be on the show again, because they’re disgusted. Look, my legs are shaking now, just saying that about my parents.”
“You’re picked to be on the show because there could be a conflict. You know that, right?” he asked Melissa, who’s married to Teresa’s brother Joe. “So you’re giving them what they want, but it’s to the disadvantage of your parents,” he continued, as they both nodded silently in agreement.
Melissa is the reason why Joe Gorga and Teresa are not on such good terms… Melissa and her evil sisters. And she should remember the reason she is on the show is because of Teresa… and the reason she got one single song out is because of Teresa – she seems to be forgetting this.
If Joe and Melissa really cared about their family and wanted to make amends with everyone, then they should be congratulating and praising Teresa publicly just as they disgraced her publicly. That’s if they were smart, but they’re not!
Why would you need to explain to anybody what Melissa did to Teresa. The Gorgas and the Wakiles sold out their family, promising to air out the dirty laundry just so they could be on TV. Teresa never said anything negative about her family in the first two seasons: she kept her wounded relationship with her family away from the camera. Her famewhore SIL wanted a music career so badly that she roped in her husband and his cousin to bring drama.
Teresa was on this show for the first two seasons and never said anything bad about her brother or his wife or her cousin. There would have been nothing wrong with them coming on the show IF they had NOT tried to bring Teresa down because of their greed and envy. This is why many people cannot look at these two people and see nothing but bad from them… and the fact that they cannot see anything wrong with what they did to Teresa and continue to do to her.
It is clear that Teresa loves Joe. During season 1 she mentioned him during her talking head interview when she flipped a table; during season 2 she announced to the entire crowd at her housewarming party how much she loved her brother (it didn’t air season 2, but was included in season 3), and she made a scene with Danielle at the reunion telling her not to bring up her family… namely Melissa and Joe. During season 3 she was genuinely and obviously sad that her relationship with her brother was broken (i.e. the book signing) when it used to be so good.
Joe Gorga, on the other hand, treats his sister like crap: calling her garbage, telling her to walk the f–k away, calling her a f—ing bitch, airing out their dirty laundry on national TV, being a famewhore, and not going to his goddaughter’s and niece’s birthday party, who he claims on TV to LOVE SO MUCH (and publicly stating on twitter that he wished he was invited to Gia’s quiet party). Joe Gorga tweeted a complaint that he was not invited to Gia’s party, trying to slam Teresa and shame her for not inviting him… it is pretty appalling that he did not attend the party which was held after her birthday.
Joe Gorga is such a hypocrite! In the first episode of season 3 he was all “sad” that Teresa wanted fame instead of family and was jealous of her relationship with the Lauritas and Manzos. The Gorgas want fame and will do anything or go anywhere to get it! Disgusting!! (Don’t they get it? Their 15 minutes of “D” list celebrity are almost over)… Even though it’s sad he didn’t go to Gia’s birthday party, it’s probably for the best: he would have made Gia read her birthday card to him like he did to Teresa when he went to her book signing! (Awkward) LOL
Joe Gorga is a typical child that never grew up. He is in competition with his wife for attention and would compete with his own kids if he thought it would advance his own popularity. He will definitely burn out his 15 minutes of fame; and his family will not be there for him at all… there is only so much a person can forgive and forget and, fortunately, for his nieces they will ALWAYS remember this… and if they should forget, there is always the film/internet to remind them. It is better that they learn at this early age exactly what they are dealing with in regards to him than to invest a lot of their formative years with him only to have his true colors show later on in life. He is one sad piece of “garbage”… zero respect for a “man” that calls his sister garbage, makes his niece cry, and screams at his parents.
Melissa and Joe are a textbook case of what instant fame without working hard (talent) can do to people. They are narcissists and pathological liars. Simply put: they are users and they do nothing unless it benefits them.
All anyone has to do is watch the first couple of episodes of season 3, the first season that Melissa and Kathy were on the show. They trashed Teresa, her husband, her kids, her intelligence, her books, the way she talks, her mothering skills, and more. And yet they want her to keep her opinions to herself .

This blog is dedicated to anyone who has ever had someone, whom they trusted, conspire to destroy their well being and livelihood because of greed, envy, pride or revenge, as Joe and Melissa Gorga, Kathy Wakile, Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo and Andy Cohen have done to Teresa Giudice and her family.
Our main goal for this blog was to expose Melissa as the liar she is and to provide a source for people to reference when explaining to her defenders what she did that was so wrong (it’s exhausting to have to explain your reasoning over and over again). For the most part, this site is a repository for the truth — we tried to include the best stories and comments from online sources so that the truth wouldn’t get lost in the blogosphere. Others do a great job blogging about the latest happenings, so please check out the sites referenced in our blog (see the Blog Roll). We hope this blog will serve as an archive of Melissa Gorga’s antics as she attempted to become famous at her sister-in-law’s expense.

To “SylviaFranken” viewer: Thank you for telling us about Gorga website. I was up all night reading it, and I’m was so happy to see someone else has documented everything I have seen and suspected. Melissa sure has done a lot of damage to Teresa’s family for fame. She wanted it BAD, and boy oh boy, did she get it. It’s VERY disturbing. Thank you for passing it on.
SylviaFranken said on May 29, 2012 at Teresa’s Bravo Blog (excerpt):
Anyone can absolutely see every move they made if you go to Fame-Whorgas web page. It’s absolutely brilliant and gives Teresa’s fans a lot of relief to see what we’ve been seeing with our own eyes for 2 seasons, but the media hasn’t caught on. Wow.
