Penny and John Karagiorgis Are Not Friends with the Wakiles But They Were Friends with Teresa Giudice; Teresa Giudice v. Kathy Wakile Dessert Line; Kathy’s Dessert Cookbook Hits Shelves September 6, 2014

Melissa Gorga

The entire cast knew of the Greeks, Penny and John Karagiorgis, since the season 3 Posche fashion show, which was taped on September 27, 2011. Plus, the Greeks’ niece, Marigo, booked members of the cast for Wendy Williams’ talk show (she now is the booker for Bethenny’s talk show).

1. Melissa knew Penny through mutual friends (Penny took over the salon where Melissa used to hang out, and when she took it over, the staff remained – they knew Melissa and her stories well, but Melissa stopped coming into the salon after the old owner, Robert, who paid for her boob job, left).

2. Kathy knew of the Greeks through her daughter’s friendship with their niece and nephew (who are rubbing shoulders with the Wakiles in an obvious attempt to share in their spotlight – even calling Rich, Kathy and Rosie uncle and aunt on twitter, a very public display of disrespect toward their real uncle John and aunt Penny, indicating that there is discord in the Greeks’ family). She and Rich called the Greeks the night before the Posche 2 ambush to convince them the cast had made peace and to encourage them to come to the event and celebrate with the them.

3. Penny said Caroline and Jacqueline had been calling her from the Arizona spa in March 2013, telling her that Teresa was trash talking her. Along with the rest of the cast, they met the Greeks at the S4 Posche Fashion Show finale taped on September 27, 2011.

Teresa Giudice

4. Teresa has known the Greeks since 2011 (see photos here, here, here and here), and she and her makeup artist Priscilla know John Karagiorgis’ sister Vasilia (the mother of the niece and nephew who are friends with the Wakiles), tweeting photos of themselves with her in August 2012:

So how many agree with me that @JohnnyTheGrk and he’s sister are identical !!

On September 29, 2013, FauxRealityEnt tweeted about the Wakiles using the Karagiorgis’ niece, Marigo, to get him to agree to meet with Rich and Joe Gorga and call a truce:

So @RichardWakile used his daughter’s friendship with #JohnnyTheGrk’s niece to go see him, but “doesn’t know who he is?”

@donna627lee @MarigoPR @WendyWilliams Now she books for Bethenny & besties with Wakiles, calls Rosie, Aunt Rosie.

So let me understand, Bethenny’s booking girl who is #VictoriaWakile’s friend is #JohnnyTheGrk’s niece but “who are these people”

On February 28, 2013, QueenzOfMedia (QOM, aka Grace Alexis) commented on my blog to intimidate me to take down one of my blogs (the one published in March 2012 where John Karagiorgis helps Pete Giudice take on QOM):

“I have developed a friendly relationship with the Giudice family and personal friends so your continued use of my twitter feed to generate content for your blog Must Stop!…. I suggest you remove all content involving me.”

QOM “developing a friendly relationship with the Giudice family and personal friends” struck me as extremely odd since they had been bashing the Guidices up until then.

Joe Gorga

At the link below, you can see John Karagiorgis and Pete Giudice backing each other up on Twitter as QOM bashes the Giudices in January and March 2012:

The following are some of those January and March 2012 tweets between Johnny and Pete:

The following are Pete Giudice’s tweets from September 18, 2012 (just before the season 4 strippergate finale), where he denies that his family is friends with Penny Drossos and Johnny Karagiorgis.

Pete Giudice ‏@PeteGiudice
I want to make this clear. Me and my family including Teresa and Joe have no relations with Johnny and Penny Karagious we are not friends.

Teresa Giudice

John Karagiorgis then backed up Pete’s assertion that the Giudices weren’t friend with them, which was an obvious attempt to cover for Teresa’s involvement in setting up Melissa at the season 4 finale (strippergate).

“For the RECORD & TO BE CLEAR: @Teresa_Giudice in no way, shape, or form knew about Angelo being at the Posche Fashion Show!!! #FACT #TRUTH” – John Karagiorgis ‏@JohnnyTheGrk, September 20, 2012, Twitter

Then next day, Penny retweeted a link to “an interesting comment” from an insider who was present for the taping of the season 4 finale.

“#RHONJ Here’s an interesting comment from some one (“I was there”) who claims to have been at the finale taping: From: (cont)” – Retweeted by Penny Drossos, September 21, 2012

The following is the content from that TwitLlonger.

Well now we know why Penny & Johnny were told to play nice at the Posche Show. Penny was about to confront Melissa while she was talking to Teresa but producers told her not to interfere. Johnny was going to come to Kim D’s defense while midget Gorga was verbally abusing her but producers told him to stay back as well. Even better, producers told Johnny to play along when confronted by midget because this was their way of introducing Penny to the show, Bullshit!!! Producers were con artists.

I saw the crap unfold in front of me. Johnny told the black haired producer that he’d play nice only for Penny but if “the midget” made any stupid moves he’ll “put him through the F’in wall”. I even heard one of the security guys tell Johnny “relax bro, no one needs to see you hurt anyone on camera”. Then I heard Johnny laugh and said “I know bro”.

Believe me or not, I was there as a guest and all unfolded in front of me. That’s all I’m saying.

There was just so much happening. I found it odd how the producer grabbed Penny aside & kept asking her and her employees if they were certain about the whole Lookers thing. Penny kept saying “what don’t you understand? She was managed by him”. There was a short blond haired girl next to Penny who kept saying something like Melissa always came to the salon and Robert always went to go see her there (Lookers). As well as another girl who said “I was friends with the bitch and she acts like she don’t know me because I know who she really is”. All this in front of the black haired producer, I guess her name is Kat. I did see Johnny rush at the doors when they told him Kim D was getting attacked by Joe and the security and producers held him back. They really sold him some bull how to just let it play out. Wow was he pissed. Yes I was nosey ;) . I was sitting at the table in front of Penny and the HWs.

Have you seen Penny & Johnny’s tweets geared at Melissa? Johnny said she doesn’t know the difference of sauce or gravy “ragu isle 3″ & something to the fact if you can trace your roots back to the motherland it’s sauce. Then the team account commented back “ragu? More like Goya” WOW.

Penny then commented about knowing other salon owners & for Melissa to stop talking shit about her family and ended it by calling her a stripper. It’s getting hot & spicy.

SH, how do you feel about Penny and Johnny? Maybe it’s time for you to interview Penny & Johnny. I mean, she did a radio interview with Will Love.

cookbookgate 5

At 11 PM on October 6, 2013 Teresa tweeted, “Where did these people these strangers come from?,” with the link to a blog at RealityRow which implied that the Wakiles are friends with John and Penny Karagiorgis (the Greeks), but John tweeted and denied that they were friends or acquaintances. The Greeks’ niece (@marigoPR) and nephew (@gmihalos), who seem to be estranged from John and Penny, have recently become very good friends with the Wakiles, and tweeted photos of themselves with the Wakile family, referring to Rosie, Kathy and Rich as aunt and uncle. It’s likely the Wakiles hired the Greeks’ niece to handle PR for the family (based on tweets, it looks like that may have occurred around June 2013).

On October 10, 2013, Teresa Giudice tweeted that she is coming out with a new dessert and coffee line under her Fabulicious trademark:

Teresa Giudice ‏@Teresa_Giudice Oct 10
Joe, team & I are on our way to Boston to promote my new Fabulicious Dessert & Coffee line. Can’t wait to share it with my adoring fans! LLL

Two days later, on October 12, 2013, Kathy Wakile told OK magazine that she is expanding her dessert line, Dolci Della Dea (which presently has one product, cannoli making kits), to include coffee:

“Rich and I went up to Boston and we had the best time. We were meeting with a lot of people, and it looks like my dessert business is going to expand considerably, and what better to expand it with than dessert and coffee? I’m really thrilled to be going that route.”

A year earlier, in October 2012, Kathy announced her cannoli making kits, which became available on QVC in December 2012. They are no longer available on QVC, but you can purchase the 24-piece kit for $39.99 PLUS a shipping and handling fee of $38.61 (almost 100% of the product price!) on Kathy’s website (includes 24 cannoli shells and two cannoli cream pastry bags shipped using dry ice).

kathy 2

During season 4, Kathy met with Italian dessert company Bindi, which also has a plant in Totowa, NJ, to negotiate a partnership for her Dolci Della Dea dessert line. The deal must have been solely for the cameras because it seems nothing ever came from it.

Also making matters worse, Kathy announced in July 2013 that she has a deal with St. Martins Press to write a dessert cookbook, “Indulge: Delicious Little Desserts — 75 Recipes that Keep Life Real Sweet.”

Teresa told Kathy in season 4 that she didn’t think there was a demand for a dessert-only cookbook (although Teresa includes dessert recipes in her books, she has not written a cookbook only about desserts). The following is a partial transcript (video here) of the conversation in season 4 when Kathy and Rich attend (for the first time) one of Teresa’s cookbook signings – this one at a bakery.

Teresa flips through her cookbook and points at photos.

Kathy: Oh, my mother’s pizzelles! Oh, my mother’s cookies too! Oh, my God!

Teresa: Well, they kind of almost have, like, the same recipes, but like (Kathy, not listening to Teresa, interrupts).

Kathy: Oh, that’s cool (pointing at the photo in Teresa’s cookbook).

Teresa: In my next cookbook, I’m going to put the recipe of the pizzelle in there.

Kathy: So your next cookbook it’s going to be like a a baking cookbook?

Teresa: No. You know what? Everybody watches their weight. Like, nobody’s going to buy a straight up dessert cookbook, that’s what I think.

Kathy and Rich look at Teresa but there is a noticeable pause before they speak.

Rich: Alright, well, listen, congratulations.

Kathy: Congratulations.

Rich and Kathy leave.

Rich: That was kind of awkward!

Kathy: I didn’t know that she was that good at baking, but that’s great, you know?

UPDATE 9/6/2014: On September 3, 2014, Kathy stopped by Bookends Bookstore in Ridgewood (image below) for her first appearance to promote her new book, Indulge: Delicious Little Desserts That Keep Life Real Sweet. []

Kathy’s dessert cookbook hit shelves on September 2, 2014. Early release sales in August were less than 40 copies; sales in September as of the 6th are less than 30 copies, according to

Kathy took several digs at her cousin Teresa during an interview about her cookbook for New York Daily News on August 31, 2014. The following is that article.

Giudices Distance Themselves from Penny and John Karagiorgis; Giudices and Gorgas Present a United Front at Teresa’s Milania Hair Care Launch Party

Starting February 4, 2013, Pete Giudice and some of Teresa Giudice’s fans started tweeting @QueenzOfMedia (QOM), a known “enemy” of the Giudices and a big supporter of Melissa and her clan. It was also at this time that Teresa started following QOM on Twitter.

qom tweets

On February 5, 2013, FW was alerted that QOM was asking around on Twitter about who “Fame” is. Then on February 28, 2013, QOM commented for the first time on FW, threatening to have WordPress take down my blogs (particularly, the one where John Karagiorgis backs up Pete Giudice on Twitter). Plus, QOM made sure to let me know that they had “developed a friendly relationship with the Giudice family and personal friends.”

“@bulldog_nj and one more sincere comment, ask yourself why the Giudices have distanced themselves from @johnnythegrk …think about it.” – Skylar & Grace (‏@QueenzOfMedia), February 8, 2013, Twitter

“I have developed a friendly relationship with the Giudice family and personal friends so your continued use of my twitter feed to generate content for your blog Must Stop!…. I suggest you remove all content involving me.” – Grace Alexis (@QueenzOfMedia), February 28, 2013, Fame-Whorgas

This shift occurred right after Bryan “Bulldog” Bowen, provoked by QOM (they posted about his assault charges and his brain tumor surgery and then brought his parents into the mess), tweeted on February 4, 2013 about the alleged rape charges and John Karagiorgis, also provoked by QOM (tweets too numerous to include in this blog), tweeted on February 2, 2013: “Talking about priors with man to man altercations, let’s talk about who assaulted women.” Bryan quickly deleted his tweet, and it probably would have gone virtually unnoticed had AllAboutTRH not published a story about it.

Remember, Bryan didn’t sign up for this and isn’t being paid by Bravo to air his dirty laundry (he is a private citizen) — the Gorgas and Giudices signed contracts agreeing to give up their privacy (they are ‘public figures’) in exchange for fame, the perks that come with being a ‘celebrity’, a Bravo paycheck, and the opportunity to market products on the Bravo network and the Bravo website via their blogs (and on their own personal websites).

The following are the tweets right after Byran’s tweet at 2:53 PM on February 4, 2013 (the one he quickly deleted) including tweets about @franksabean (who Pete and Sheila Giudice follow and tweet – see “Frank” to Teresa’s right in the photo above).

According to @FauxRealityEnt, RHONJ storylines are now being dictated by Twitter for damage control and spin. Also according to Faux, who supposedly attended the Milania Hair Care launch party, someone named Mario Petris (@MarioPetris) was at the party while Bravo was taping, and the entire night was a discussion about Twitter.

Pete Giudice Denies His Family is Friends with Penny and Johnny Karagiorgis; Who Was the Person Texting Jacqueline Laurita During Strippergate?

September 18, 2012 140 comments

Melissa finally made the cover of Us Weekly, on news stands September 19, 2012 … the headline is about strippergate, which is a year-old story. The whole purpose of the Posche Fashion Show setup was to boost Melissa’s career; it’s her ‘sex tape’. Now she can spend the next six months talking about it on talk shows and trying to get more tabloid covers, all at the expense of her husband’s family (because we all know she doesn’t consider Teresa family… Melissa has her sisters; she doesn’t need or care about Teresa). Funny thing is, in this video of her interview on ‘The Couch’ she’s still denying she was ever a stripper. One of these talk shows needs to use the correct term ‘dancer’ and get her to deny that.

“I’m wondering if the ‘bulldog’ and her crony Jacqueline are going to crucify Melissa next season for being on the cover of US Weekly and bashing one of the other housewives? What a hypocrite.” – 4evanyer, September 19, 2012, Melissa’s Bravo Blog

“I just want to say congratulations on your US Weekly cover!!! All your hard work scheming with Danielle, then getting on the show, then turning Teresa’s friends against her for the SAME things that you do are really starting to pay off!! I thought Teresa was crazy for saying you were jealous of her, but this cover cements EVERYTHING. You are out for the same money and fame as her. I don’t think there is anything worse than a jealous hypocrite.” – BrittBrittasco, September 19, 2012, Melissa’s Bravo Blog

“Melissa is behind her own setup. Why is this an issue? Because Melissa is making it one.” – CaraLinda, September 19, 2012, Melissa’s Bravo Blog

“What about wondering how Jacqueline went running to Melissa telling her that Teresa set her up? I want to know how everyone figured out what happened so quickly after the guy just came up and said a very innocent ‘hi, remember me’? How is that threatening and a set up? Melissa promised Bravo she would take Teresa down. She had to find a reason to rile things up again and blame Teresa for something awful. She knew a story line of her getting along with Teresa wouldn’t cut it. Hello!!!!” – NotAfraidofReality, September 19, 2012, Jacqueline’s Bravo Blog

“It looks like anybody can get on a housewives show these days. I remember when the Real Housewives used to be about rich women in gated communities living luxurious lives. Now we have reformed strippers that are brought on the show to ‘take down’ their family members so they can get a singing gig at Six Flags. I think we have hit rock bottom folks!” – swiss_miss, September 19, 2012, Melissa’s Bravo Blog

“The rumor is that the ‘mutual friend’ is a biased producer named Cat Rodriguez (who is no longer with the show). The producer was involved in the set up and texted all the ladies except Teresa when they were at the table about who the guy was and what supposedly was going to happen (if you watch the episode, you’ll notice a lot of the ladies checking their phones at the table). This is why Melissa knew it was coming and (in the final episode) baits Teresa in the bathroom to tell her who the guy was so that they could all then turn around and blame Teresa. Teresa confronts Jacqueline and asks her why she told Melissa that Teresa was setting up Melissa, to which Jacqueline responds ‘my friend was texting me and told me everything that was gonna happen and that you were behind it’. Teresa then says ‘what friend?’ and Jacqueline says she doesn’t want to ‘sell out’ the friend. Since the friend is the producer and Jacqueline didn’t want to be called out by Teresa the next day at the reunion 3 taping (and Bravo certainly didn’t want this information to leak out), she decided not to show up to the reunion, and this is also supposedly why the network did not enforce its contract and make her come since a producer would be implicated in the drama.” – Maggs, September 19, 2012, Fame-Whorgas

cat & melissa and tre 41

Was RHONJ Executive Producer Cat Rodriguez the Person Texting Jacqueline at the Posche Fashion Show?

According to Jazzyg, commenting at Fame-Whorgas on September 20, 2012:

“I know a friend of Cat Rodriguez who lives here in Los Angeles, CA and she can confirm with me that Cat was let go for her conflict of interest when she produced season 3 and 4 of RHNJ. She was also the person texting Jacqueline and intervening during the PFS blowout, which is what sealed her fate.”

Jacqueline Laurita’s Mother Said ‘Bravo Asked Jacqueline to Do Things to Teresa to Put Her in a Bad Light’

“Bravo asked Jac to do things to Teresa that would have put Teresa in a bad light but Jac wouldn’t do it!” – Bonnie Grippe (Jacqueline’s mother), May 16, 2012, Twitter

“Bravo DOES NOT ASK TO BRING DRAMA!! They ask for the TRUTH 2b told. NO faking ur life 4 cameras. GET IT NOW? My Mom was confused… THE TRUTH=DRAMA!! GET IT NOW? MOST people wouldn’t want their truth 2b told, would they? Some people are more open. @Bgrippe STAY OFF TWITTER” – Jacqueline Laurita’s response to her mother’s tweet on May 16, 2012 (above)

“These loons tatally twisted what I said. Trying to make the point that you were a good friend to t and even refused to film a scene if it wld make her look bad. They twisted it of course! Love you xxoo” – Bonnie Grippe’s response back to Jacqueline’s tweet on May 17, 2012 (above); shortly after this tweet she protected her Twitter account

“Jacqueline tries to convince everyone and justify what she has done, however, her own mother took to Twitter to state that Bravo asked her to take Teresa down. Which is it? Who is lying? Since Jacqueline likes to share everything with family and friends, wouldn’t you think she shared that information with her mother? Did her mother try to make Jacqueline not look so bad, so she took it upon herself to say that was what Bravo had her do, paid her to do? And, if Jacqueline was such a good friend, why would she deliberately do that, because she was paid to by Bravo–that doesn’t sound like what a good friend would agree to? I hope Andy will address this in the reunion, as I would like to know the truth about Bravo’s involvement in this take down and exposing of Teresa. At any rate, even if Jacqueline subsequently denied it, calling her mother a liar, it was calculated and underhanded. Therefore, I believe nothing that Jacqueline has to say to try and cover her ass at this point in time. It is all bs.” – MelindaK., August 5, 2012, Jacqueline’s Bravo Blog

“I just finished going over some of the comments on BubbaJax Bravo Blog…and while reading it I realized something. I’m starting to believe that Bonnie was right when she said that JaxAss was asked to do some things to Teresa to make her look bad…the whole cast and production was in on it… I believe Jackaholic’s job was to get Teresa to admit on camera things about her bankruptcy, her relationship with the tabloids, and to admit that she was jealous of Melissa and wanted JaxStabber to side with her in the feud. That’s why BubbaJax is so emotional: she does not want to fall in line with the rest of the cast and turn on Teresa. Think about it. Jacqueline tried to get Teresa to admit to all of those things at the backyard ambush, and many other conversations with Teresa. She kept bringing up the same things… and Chuckie’s and JackStabber’s response were, ‘there, you just admitted it’. The insane clown posse lead by Chuck Droopy Jawled Manzoid. What a sick bunch of people.” – Meadow (@improgressing), August 16, 2012, StoopidHousewives

Who Is Jacqueline Laurita Waving to as Angelo Vrohidis Approaches the Table?

Jacqueline Laurita waved to someone as Angelo Vrohidis approached the table at the Posche Fashion Show on September 27, 2011; and after waving, she immediately pointed to her mic (?) and then started to chuckle.

As several readers have pointed out, there is a blonde woman behind Angelo that Jacqueline may be waving to. This woman can be seen saying ‘Oh my God’ as she looks in Angelo’s direction. If she’s not talking about him, it could be something off camera to her right. If she is reacting to Jacqueline and Angelo, then it is very suspicious because how would she know who Angelo is? And why would Jacqueline be motioning to her and then her mic? Maybe Jacqueline is motioning for her to be quiet because Angelo is mic’ed and because the staged scene is about to go down.

Angelo didn’t say anything to Melissa about knowing her when she was a dancer; he simply walked away and no one at the table paid any attention to him or questioned who he was (which was strange since moments before Pete Giudice approached the table and they all asked who he was — see Pete Giudice’s tweets below were he calls out Caroline for pretending she didn’t know who he was). However, before walking away, he made it a point to ask Teresa, ‘How are you, good?’

The only reason there was a scene is because Melissa made one in the bathroom by calling her husband to come rescue her, which was what the producers asked the cast to do.

Just re-watch episode 19 (youtube video here; embedding has been disabled; go to 41:30), and it is so obvious that they were all acting. Here are screen shots:
