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

“I know a friend of Cat Rodriguez [pictured above] 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.”

Johnny Karagiorgis Says Teresa Was Not Involved with Strippergate

Pete Giudice Says Penny & Johnny Are Not Friends of the Giudice Family and Questions Why Caroline Manzo Pretended She Didn’t Know Who He Was at the Posche Fashion Show

“@AllAboutTRH No. We happen to be a few functions and they were there with friends. We were at Disney years ago and seen a show for an hr.” – Pete Giudice ‏@PeteGiudice September 18, 2012, Twitter

Pete Guidice retweeted this comment on September 19, 2012:

“Why did @carolinemanzo pretend she did not know who @petegiudice is? Such BS. I smell a rat!… has to be more to it. Caroline & Melissas were sooo nervous. Caroline wouldn’t even look @ him.”

I was wondering if it was meant to be Caroline that was supposed to ask the question, ‘Who was that?’ I say this because she had asked something like, ‘Who was that?’ about Joe’s brother Pete, and yet we know that Pete is nearly a dead ringer for Joe, so wasn’t it obvious who he was? I thought maybe Caroline had missed her cue. She was scripted to say ‘Who was that?’ to the first guy to approach the table. Only they didn’t count on Pete coming over. My main thoughts:

  • Caroline had never gone to any of the previous fashion shows. So why start now, considering she was going to be seated with Teresa who she dislikes.
  • Caroline would have been the obvious choice for the one to deliver the line and push for information because Jax wouldn’t have had the pluckiness to do it, nor Katfish.
  • When Angelo does arrive at the table, both Caroline and her daughter are busy texting (looking overly busy if you ask me). Why did she take so much interest in Pete and not Angelo?
  • I think, in the real world, a girl-friend would have had no problem asking again, ‘Who is/was that?’, but it looks like Caroline knows she has stuffed the scenario and thinks it would be too obvious to ask again.
  • I believe that the whole ‘Melissa having to ask Teresa who the man was is’ actually was an on-the-fly setup. I think what really was planned was for the whole scenario to play out at the table with all of the girls present.

I believe the scene with Angelo talking about Melissa working for him as a dancer was supposed to occur at the table in front of everyone, but Melissa didn’t take the bait and Angelo choked, so producers had to setup the scene in the bathroom between Melissa we and Teresa so that they could discuss what he said about Melissa earlier that day at the salon.

On September 19, 2012, Pete Giudice got into a Twitter conversation about Melissa:

A follower tweeted Pete: “I hate how she can keep on lying and no one calls her on it! #sofrustrating. Pete for your SIL this bish Mel really has crossed the line!”

Pete tweeted: ” @melissagorga Yea long lost fuck of joe gorga back in Cancun! Don’t make me break out the picts….. Actually @frankabba has em on a cd.”

Someone else tweeted: “Strippers of a feather ( boa) flock together lmao #RHONJ.”

And Pete replied: “U got that right “

Another tweeted: “Melissa makes it like the salon was random place. It was in fact affiliated with PFS. Look at the step and repeat” (photos below).

The following are Pete Giudice’s tweets from September 18, 2012, where he denies that his family is friends with Penny Drossos and Johnny Karagiorgis, owners of the salon where Kim D and Teresa got their hair and makeup done for the Posche Fashion Show.

Posche Fashion Show Guest Speaks Out

“#RHONJ Here’s an interesting comment from some one who claims to have been at the finale taping: From: (cont) http://tl.gd/jcgm1q” (see below) – Retweeted by Penny Drossos, September 21, 2012

I was there said on August 11, 2012 at 9:36 PM at StoopidHousewives:

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 say, “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.

I was there said on August 11, 2012 at 9:36 PM at StoopidHousewives:

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.

Hope you don’t mind, I sent JTG/Penny a DM about this possibility of answering followers questions. JTG responded with “ask away”. He’s funny.

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:

“Jacqueline, did it ever occur to you that Caroline set you up. I could see on the play date with Teresa and Melissa that things had taken a turn. I honestly didn’t see it being Teresa either. It appeared to me that Caroline had been telling you things again. Does it ever occur to you that Caroline wants you to be just as nasty and miserable as she is? Why would Caroline attend the fashion show when she is done with Teresa, and no less sit with her? Why, when the first man approached the table, did Caroline immediately asked who it was? Why, when Angelo approached, Caroline turned her entire body, started talking to Lauren, and did not notice Angelo talking to Melissa at all. Why was Joe Gorga right next door when Caroline said it took an hour and a half to find the place? Why was Caroline on WWHL wearing a dress she had recently gotten from Posche. Why did your tweet give Kim D a total pass when it was obvious that she had some part in this. Why was Kim G across the street sitting on the balcony watching the whole thing unfold, while texting you? It looked like you had become upset with Teresa again, and Caroline was not liking the fact that the two of you had made up. When this happened, it obviously sealed the deal for you, and Caroline could rest easy knowing there was no chance of a reconciliation with you and Teresa EVER. As I recall, Caroline had no problem, whatsoever, paying someone to dig up dirt on Danielle, which, by the way, ultimately hurt her children. This clearly shows me that Caroline will stop at nothing to get what she wants. In return, she got exactly what she wanted: you went viral with your attacks on Teresa for what you thought she had done and basically made a fool out of yourself.” – valgal62, September 19, 2012, Jacqueline’s Bravo Blog

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

      Well that ” I’m calling YOUR BROTHER ” said it all. Let me tell him what I think you are trying to do and hope that it drives you two further apart. All of this makes the show so disappointing to watch anymore. I really don’t know who’s paying to see her perform or buy her music,but I am curious as to why. The Manzo’s have a video of them making sauce. Really? Teresa did it first and it was very endearing to watch,something about these guys that doesn’t quite get it.
      I thinks there’s usually some subtle,light,criticism amongst friends and family,but they all want to stomp Teresa into the ground. Reading FW Blog has reinforced everything I’ve been thinking for some time now.

      This whole cast is a disgrace. Caroline is too stupid to know that PEOPLE know who Jill is. We all know that her Sainted Husband has a mistress. AND Jacqueline is the worst actress ever. The whole cast, who wanted to bring Teresa down, did nothing but shame themselves. I wasn’t on Team Teresa before so much, but I HOPE ALL THOSE WITCHES get fires and Teresa is left as the only RHONJ. It would serve them right. And Jacqueline, your husband is way smarter than you. Put downthe wine glass and be big enough to admit that you are a liar.

    It actually looks like she’s waving and laughing at someone behind him. You can see a woman on the left side of the camera behind him facing Jacqueline and laughing, too. She is blonde and is standing there right when he begins talking to Melissa.

    @ Chris stark – excellent point. She dd say “brother,” not “husband.” And, what was up with Kathy’s quick reply to Tre after Tre said her heart was beating fast?! She asked, “did you drink a lot of coffee today?” A normal response would be, “why? Are you okay?” And, her coffee question came out so quick, it had to be written. Tre was set up by everyone. Until this episode, I was on Melissa’s side, and actually enjoyed the show – now that I know it’s clearly set-up, I have no desire to ever watch it again. Bravo should be ashamed.

      Wow!!! You are the first Melissa fan that has admitted she’s not who you thought she was. Kudos! Every fan of hers are so delusional. Season 3 I wasn’t a fan of Teresa because of how her and Jacqueline did Danielle. I was all for Kathy and Melissa. I felt bad for Kathy. I even shed tears for the lying froggy looking bitch because I thought how Teresa treated her was so cold but after watching the reunion something didn’t sit well with me and how Kathy wasn’t defending Teresa when Caroline and Melissa were grilling her. Kathy just sat there and nodded and agreed. She was in a better place with Teresa they made up . Why the harshness? Now I see why Teresa did her so cold and I definitely see why Teresa can’t stand Melissa. It’s going to take a loss in their family like their father for Joe Gorga to wake the hell up. Melissa loves the tension. It gives her a storyline and it gives more reasons to be a hypocrite and see her own face on US Weekly. The only thing about her is you won’t see any of her children posted in the photos w/ her it’ll be all about Melissa. I just hope karma comes to her and hope that her karma is worse and kicked off the show. She’s cancerous to the show and cancerous to Teresa’s entire family. She’s a wicked, sick bitch!

      At the table at the PFS someone said, “There’s something going on outside”. Jacqueline immediately said” The Calm Before The Storm”. How did she know that? How did she know that it had to do with the women. Why was it in a text at the table?

      • October 17, 2012 at 7:58 PM

        It was so obvious that it was a setup. The only part I couldn’t understand is how Melissa’s fans couldn’t see the obvious. I believe KimD was especially in on it because of the smirk on her face that never came off. She took Teresa to this salon to get her hair done. A salon that Teresa DID NOT frequented. From the get go I found that odd. And when the weird guy came in and said ‘gentlemen’s club,” I knew something was up. No one who works in a real ‘gentlemen club’ calls it that. He was phony. Teresa was nervous but KimD wouldn’t let it go. She was in on it. Some friend. Not.

    Fame, I have to applaud you on the pick up of Jacqueline waving to someone and then motioning or pointing to what appears to be possibly her microphone. This all happens when Angelo suddenly appears at the table, and seems to be significant. I didn’t notice this before, but your still photos are great, because they clearly show her waving to someone. We did note the blonde woman before, and perhaps it is to her, but I did notice she was in the one shot, and then the next with the camera on Angelo’s face again, she is gone from the shot. I saw on another blog, and I have forgotten which one, (sorry) that someone is saying that this may be a woman named Lori, and that poster said that she tweets Penny. Penny who, I am not sure, but we all there is Penny Drossos, central to this story. Whoever has the chance to check into this further should to see if they can get more definite background on who this woman may have been, and if she is connected to the story in a significant way. The postings may have been in the comments to a story at the AllAboutTRH. Right after I saw something about this, I had an emergency, and have not gotten back to the web site, and am done for the night. I wanted to read more of the comments, to see who and where someone got the information about the blonde woman to get as much information as possible to post on here, but I had to leave the computer. Hopefully, someone will have seen it and post more, or someone will see this and remember the comments. If not, hopefully one of us will get the chance to read the comments on the other sites.

    Hope this helps shed some light on the significance of Jacqueline’s actions. This person may be someone they all knew, and it did look like she may have been at the next table, which is where Kim D., was supposed to be sitting. If any of this checks out, is it possible that if Kim Granatel was not the friend texting, could this woman have been? As the saying goes..”there are no coincidences”, and clearly the timing of Jacqueline’s actions are exactly when Angelo approaches the table, and the blonde woman, clearly says “oh my God”. Seems like this may be pertinent to the set up, and that would certainly implicate Jacqueline’s actions as suspicious. Hope we will have answers to this soon, it may help.

    I thought it was considered very unprofessional for a production team to get personal and socialize with thr cast-SIMPLY for this reason! I pray they ALL have to find another career and noone hires them ever again. I get really steamed at Andy and his very narrow-minded view on life/people. Unless you are jewish, gay or very famous, he simply hates women. He is so invested in the hate of these women. When he’s not actually targeting one like Teresa, he is frothing at the mouth at all of these females and husbands selling their soul to be famous. He really thrives on the gossip and drama-for him, the meaner and cut-throat, the better viewers love drama, but NOT to a point you are exploiting mental illness and substance (Jack) abuse, etc, and CERTAINLY not when you are literally humiliating and ruining livlihoods of an entire family. I hope he gets this back in his face ten fold. His job should be snatched asap-I see pure liabilty on all these sick pathetic losers part and the Guidice Family should clean out nbc, bravo, andy and every cast memer and production member responsible for this trip to hell.

    I’m reading now that Pete G is further refuting any relationship with the Karagiorgis family, even after a recent photo that had been posted on twitter by his wife showed his and Karagiorgis children dancing, with a caption referencing “uncle johnny”.
    I wonder why now there is a sudden pulling away and denial of friendship.
    Is it because of a suspicion/confirmation of perhaps Kim G/ Karagiorgis/Jacqueline involved in the set up??? Or is it because Karagiorgis has threatened further exposure of Melissa and her sordid past, and they don’t want any further “shame” brought to the Gorga name?
    The more information that is creeping out, along with people’s reactions leads me to think there is much much more to this whole PFS debacle than any of us may suspect.
    One thing for certain, is I completely believe that Teresa was unsuspecting to any of this, and was completely setup to ‘take the fall’.

    {side note}- The Marco sisters attack of Kim D on twitter, yet they did not make any agressive attacks towards Teresa on twitter, although Teresa is the one they are ‘blaming’. I find that suspect…..regardless if KimD’s tweets are considered antagonistic- if Teresa is the ‘mastermind’, why have they refrained? And I don’t buy “loyalty” to Joe Gorga for not attacking Teresa, as he could care less if Teresa was set tarred and feathered and set on flames in the town square….

    I guess we will all have to wait for more information to come out …

    • Joanna
      September 19, 2012 at 1:22 PM

      I had read a comment a few months back that someone said she didn’t just dance, she went home with guys. I had forgotten it until last week at the Salon when Angelo says “the guy were very happy with her” or something to that effect. How would that statement apply to a bartender? I think Melissa is enjoying the attention, she gets to look like a victim, bash Teresas good name and make more covers all at the same time. Jacqueline has a past as well, they are both shady girls and they know it.

    We know the time-line is a little screwy with PFS being falsely portrayed as an event that took place after Fabellini launch but when did the cast learn that Teresa would be on Celebrity Apprentice? That show is a whole new level IMO. It must have ticked off the rest of the cast and producers. Those B’s are seething with jealousy already and then for T to elevated to prime-time, bingo complete meltdown/s! Even Caroline or rep. tried to spin it that she was the first choice (not Teresa) and that Manzo turned it down = BS! The whole cast filmed their interviews while CA is taping – it had to be a point of contention to realize that they are rehashing and spewing the same venomous crap focusing on Teresa ad nauseum. At the same time she’s really the star of RHONJ who is actually working a real gig! I am hoping for a repeat of fun and that Teresa will be on CA allstars this next season.

    This all makes no sense. Melissa is blaming Teresa is US Weekly (a Manzo go-to rag) and on TV this morning http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2012/09/19/real-housewife-melissa-gorga-talks-tv-drama-and-music-career/

    So are they (Bravo and the cast of evil doers) still going to spin this as it was all set-up by Teresa?

    • September 19, 2012 at 12:06 PM

      Melissa finally made the cover of Us Weekly, on news stands September 19, 2012 … the headline is about the strippergate story. The whole purpose of the PFS 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. Funny thing is, in the video 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.

          It doesn’t take a lot to be a stripper at a place like Lookers btw. They don’t have to be professional dancers. All they have to do is fist pump and twerk.

            I think Melissa wants people to think she stripped. Her little trashy brain thinks it would be cool to be associated with that lifestyle. I am sure she told the Producers herself, so that the Grand Finale would be All About Melissa. She doesn’t care about family, children, image, she just wants the spot light on her, good or bad.

Then she keeps the topic going …saying where do I kniw him from? And on and on. Really Mel? Doesnt this happen to you ladies all the time? People from high school, old acquaintances, distant relatives? I would think that this would be part of being semi famous…and nobody innocent to this whole plot would have thought anything of this strange man saying hello to you. No explanation was necessary at all. Mel kept the conversation about angelo going. Nobody else. Guilty as sin.

She seemed very calm, stone faced and obviously faking the lines ‘I think I know him, but I don’t know where’ – but now, wow, to think she wanted this as her sex tape/tabloid stories to run all summer til the new season etc. She & Joey are even more fame hungry than I ever imagined.

    Google says the cast for Apprentice was announced in Jan 2012. We KNOW several of the cast interviewed for their talking head segments in 2012, so they would have likely known about TG filming Celebrity Apprentice, and prob knew rumors about it before it was announced. Someone pointed out recently on Twitter that Caro was tweeting up a storm with Lampanelli all that time-but now not a tweet.

    Good catch. I really don’t think Manzo would be on Trump’s short list, but that’s just my wishful thinking!

    Interesting theory on PFS Jac & Teresa #RHONJ….

    The rumor is that the ‘mutual friend’ is a biased producer named Cat (who is no longer with the show). The producer was involved in the set up and texted all the ladies except Tre when they were at the table about who the guy was and what was supposedly going to happen (if you watch the ep notice a lot of the ladies checking their phones at the table). This is why Melissa knew it was coming and baits Teresa to tell her who the guy was in the bathroom (in next week’s ep) so that they could all then turn around and blame Tre. Tre confronts Jac and ask her why she told Melissa that Tre was setting her (Mel) up to which Jac responds ‘my friend was texting me and told me everything that was gonna happen and that you were behind it’. Tre then says ‘what friend?’ and Jac says she doesn’t want to ‘sell out’ the friend. Since the friend is the producer and Jac didn’t want to be called out by Tre the next day 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.

    Take it with a grain of salt its just one theory I’ve read

    • September 19, 2012 at 12:20 PM

      That makes sense from the little bit we’ve seen of the last episode. It’s a good theory.

      I addressed the Cat Rodriguez connection in the last two articles. To see screen shots of Cat Rodriguez’ tweets to the cast (her twitter handle was @yourfriendkitty), click on the link to the StoopidHousewives article below. The tweets are a must see to really understand why an executive producer would help Melissa take down Teresa:

      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.

      Whether that played a part in Jacqueline not showing for the S 3 reunion taping she doesn’t know but it seems like that would fit the equation.

      • Maggs
        September 20, 2012 at 5:24 PM

        I’ve read other rumors that Cat Rodriguez and Melissa Gorga were having an affair. Any truth to that Jazzyg? I realize it sounds alittle out there but I can’t figure out why this Cat person would suddenly be socializing with the cast and also trying to turn the whole show and fan base against Teresa? If she was “involved” with one of the cast members then that would kind of make sense and I wouldn’t put something like that past Melissa Gorga, I believe she would sell her kids to get Teresa off the show and be the star.

        • Jazzyg
          September 20, 2012 at 5:44 PM

          The person I befriended didn’t know anything about that. I imagine if that is the case, Cat would keep that as quiet as possible. Being fired and the reasons for it spread out more easily within the industry.

          The only reason I was able to confirm this info is because my friend was telling me about having worked on RHOC and other reality shows. She establishes the story lines but she insisted that even then you can’t and should not intervene to change the chain of reactions when filming. I felt confident enough to ask if she knew anything about RHNJ and she told me about her friend Cat who used to work there but was let go for those same reasons. Cat was in charge of dictating to the cast members when they had to shoot, with whom, and what they had to talk about. But she crossed the line and became friends with some of the cast and was let go after it became a huge conflict of interest and caused her to intervene and change the course of filming. (PFS i assume).

          • Jazzyg
            September 20, 2012 at 5:49 PM

            Just to clarify, I do not work in the TV and Film industry but I have met a lot of people in it due to my job. The person who gave me the info is not a close friend or relative. She is someone I’ve known now for about 6 months and has worked for a lot of shows as a “supervising producer”, “creative editor” and as a writer. She certainly has no reason to lie and has good credentials (in my opinion). I believe her 100% and validates everything I’ve read on this site.

            Bravo, Melissa, and Cat have no shame!

I hate envious people and worst, people that are ready to damage somebody just because they are more successful and don’t care about anyone’s business, that’s Tre for me, I guess her fans are smart and could tell that something was off with this show, that is why we read this blog and the other out there that tell the truth of whats happening… I want a show with Teresa G, her and the kids are really funny, especially Milania… I hope she gets vindicated of all the crap they been trying to put on her, I will keep watching, only if shes there and if they cut the meanness !!

They all look crazy saying this is a setup from Teresa and the viewers arent buying it. Do you think this is the apporach Bravo was trying to take in the end that Teresa really didnt have anything to do with it?

            I think Bravo believed that the viewers were too stoopid to read between the lines and to take notice of the bad editing. I believed this Cat (who I believe was jealous of Teresa), along with the Manzos, Jacqueline, Kathy and Melissa, all wanted Teresa OUT. With all of the editing done these past two seasons, I don’t even believe Joe’s famous phone call was what it appeared to be on television. I think that is why Teresa has a hard time explaining her reaction to it.

            Teresa had better not be given to the wolves on the Reunion show. If she is, I am done with Bravo and will also boycott any company who advertises on the network. I have already started to compile a list from this past episode and intend to post it after the reunion. That is, if it is alright with Fame.

              Bravo is definitely aware of it, which is why they edit out any mention of famewhorgas from comments posted on the Bravo blogs. I’ve seen it myself… sometimes it slips through and when I check back it’s been removed. Bravo does edit the comments for other things too.

              I was surprised Teresa linked her blog to AAT and SH and even more surprised that Bravo allowed it. The housewives seem to track what’s being said about them online, so I’m pretty sure they all are aware of this blog.

    Just read Melissa’s blog and got soooo angry! Lies from start to finish so I commented:

    Oh my god. Lies, lies lies! From start to finish your blog is full of lies! 1) It wasn’t a random salon, it was the salon doing hair and make up for the entire show, where you and the rest of the women were meant to be but pulled out at the last minute. Not only that, YOU KNOW THE OWNERS!!! 2) Long lost brother my a**…. the Giudices, as demonstrated many times are a close knit family AND many men were at the show… do you forget meeting a group of them yourself, one of them a possible ex, there’s photographs. 3) If that was acting, why do you think so many of us see right through your charade – because we spot the truth. 4) You knew who that man was. He said hello, that is all. You blew it up. You can see on Teresa’s face she didn’t want to be there. 5)Teresa would have preferred to get her make up done at home, she even complained about the job done. Who’s Cat Melissa? Is she the lady who was texting everyone or is she your producer? You and the rest of the ladies put the stripper thing out there, just like you put out Teresa’s financial problems. What was the lawsuit Melissa? The $49,500 you owe Fabulous Fred. Honestly, you couldn’t sleep straight in bed! Why was your husband conveniently nextdoor Melissa? Why aren’t your sister trash talking Teresa on twitter Melissa? Why was a scene between you and Kim D, someone we hadn’t seen or heard from most of the season placed smack at the head of the episode? This whole episodes reeks of a setup, and not on you… on Teresa! Why was Caroline there, a lady who refused to be with Teresa? Why didn’t Teresa know you were coming? Was it great selling your story and having a front cover all to yourself Melissa? This is your Kim Kardashian moment right? Your faux scandal…. every good famewhore needs one and PS Teresa has not called you a famewhore, that was you whipping it up but if the shoe fits I guess. Why did you come on the show Melissa? Trust me if you were honest once, you may just be able to walk away with a shred of dignity!

    Bravo this had best be posted, we know you cut the programme towards Melissa, we know it was you former Producers who crossed the line and befriended the cast and made this happen and we know we won’t be watching this farce next season. You’ve lost your audience by employing the likes of Melissa and Joe Gorga who have lied and manipulated since the day they got on the show. If this is false prove it, put my post up, unedited this time. I’ve copied and pasted it to post to another blog to prove you’re selective and discriminative against one of your employees.

It really is a win win for them all. Melissa got her a cover on US. I dont think she cares about the stripper stuff coming out. Jac had to go along with it to save everyone from knowing about her past. Caroline can remain like she is…completely against Teresa.

    I always wondered why Jacqueline was allowed to just skip the reunion. It doesn’t seem like Bravo to excuse someone just because they are upset at someone else. Isn’t being upset with one another the basis of this stupid franchise? The reason stated by Maggs in your Blog makes perfect sense – Jacqueline was receiving texts from the producer which is why she wouldn’t tell Teresa who it was. Bravo “excused” her from the reunion because they knew it would come up the next day at the reunion show taping, and they didn’t want Jacqueline airing Bravo’s dirty laundry to the viewers. I am SO SO done with this show. I feel dumb for buying into it for all of these years. I hope Teresa carries on and has a wonderful, successful life. And I hope she slams the door in Gorga’s face when the Stripper leaves him for a backup dancer.

    I love that Melissa Gorga is the Patron Saint of Tabloids, giving away her sad story *for free, even appearing on the cover with a small-Teresa, *for free. Everyone :knows: Teresa got paid–but those same women simply accept that Melissa didn’t receive a thin dime for her outreach services to community.

    What does this say about Melissa’s business sense? “No don’t pay me, i want to give you the story for free!!”.

    Liar or a Dumbazz.

    I don’t really know where to put this followup information, without getting too specific: A twitter user provided some incriminating information today about Queenz Of Media, the source for so much anti-Teresa propaganda from a few weeks ago.

    Recall: Queenz said she was getting her info from a Bravo insider. The insider provided info to Queenz, who then distributed it on Twitter. Some of it was just silly, and not accurate. Some was accurate. Apparently the source has now disappeared.

    Seems the twitter detective found out that: Queenz of Media is partners w/a “shemale” (their words) who sells sex in person, online videocam & phone. The Queenz are very close to the Marco sisters and their entourage, and to Melissa Gorga.

    Melissa just appeared on Q of M radio program last week, as a guest of the cohost/hooker Skylar, and partner Grace. The twitter detective has asked Melissa about her involvement with the QoM, but so far no response back.

    It will be written up & put on another site we will be able to read should anyone want to know more.

    I think pete is saying they are not friends because people are saying T was only acting like she just met penny and jonny at the salon. Then making the case that she set mel up with their help. Pete is defending T by saying they were not and are not friends. Not that they hate each other just that they dont know each other.

    I am wondering if maybe angelo flubbed his lines when he didnt elaborate to melissa about how he knows her. He was supposed to expose her past by saying…. Remember me from lookers where u danced? Instead he got nervous or chickened out so mel had to improvise and keep the topic going by saying ….. Now where do I know him from? And when that doesnt work she has to badger T in the bathroom about it. Give this some thought. It makes sense.

      I was wondering if it was meant to be Carowhine that was meant to ask the question, “Who was that?”

      I say this because she had asked something like “Who was that?” about Joe’s brother Pete, and yet we know that Pete is nearly a dead ringer for Joe so wasn’t it obvious who he was?

      I thought maybe Carowhine had missed her cue. She was scripted to say “Who was that?” to the first guy to approach the table. Only they didn’t count on Pete coming over.

      My main thoughts:

      Carowhine had never gone to any of the previous fashion shows. So why start now, and considering she was going to be seated with Teresa who she dislikes.

      Carowhine would have been the obvious choice for the one to deliver the line and push for information because Jax wouldn’t have had the pluckiness to do it nor Katfish.

      When Angelo does arrive at the table both Carowhine and her daughter are busy texting. (Looking overly busy if you ask me.) Why did she take so much interest in Pete and not Angelo?

      I think in the real world, a girl-friend would have had no problem asking again “Who is/was that? but it looks like Carowhine knows she has stuffed the scenario and thinks it would be too obvious to ask again.

      I believe that the whole Melissa having to ask Teresa who the man was is actually an on-the-fly setup. I think what was really wanted for the whole scene was for the whole scenario to play out at the table with all of the girls present.

    Reading all of these comments has been interesting.. I think everyting should come together and make a list that is a comparison chart of everything Teresa has done and then one the other side, list how one of the other cast members has been a hypocrite or contradicted something they have said about Teresa during that particular incident.. We should post a link to this list to all of their Twitters, even Andy Cohens…


    it should be like a bullet point debate with the rebuttal..AllAboutTRH and FameWhoregas should work on this together!

    What’s fascinating about this franchise in particular is that it explores the dynamics of a family. On RHOBH, RHONY, RHOOC, RHOM, and RHOA, you know those chicks would be content if they never saw the other women again after their run is over because they don’t really have a reason to socialize.

    However, the women and their families are connected and interwoven on RHONJ. That’s why it is horrible to see the effects of entitlement, famewhoring and jealousy on previously close knit relationships. And yes, her brother, the only son of traditional Italians and the baby of the family, believes he is entitled to the same fame his sister has obtained because he’s been told all of his life how very extra special he is and what he deserves. With the combination of a wife who also has been coddled by her family and believes she’s just as special, Teresa cannot win or lose in this situation.

    After Melissa has willingly lied about babysitting her neices so Teresa could attend the Fabellini launch in order to present herself in a good light, she doesn’t have any more credibility. This is not a SIL I would run to when it comes to “dancing” rumors. After all, what happened when Teresa approached her brother (off camera, at that!) to discuss the gold digger rumor? It got dragged up in front of cameras and used against her. I would keep my mouth shut as well!

This season is a true reflection of the trash and enil levels they are willing to go to that has potential to devastate these victims to such mental anguish-Russell Armstrong is the latest example.

    The Mic is in the front, the receiver/wireless pak is in the back. You can’t make it up, it’s on film. Jacqueline Laurita is notorious for lying, gossiping, going to tabloids and destroying people when she gets made at them. A true nut case.

    • Joanna
      September 20, 2012 at 1:29 PM

      I’m not sure you would be able to see the mic. The overwhelming consensus is that Jacqueline Laurita worked with Cat Rodriguez to set up Melissa. I’m sure in the coming weeks more info will come out. But your free to defend her 🙂

    • September 20, 2012 at 1:46 PM

      Typically, the transmitter pack is taped to their backs but the actual mic is wrapped around to their fronts (of course, to be closer to their mouths), normally secured under their clothes so the device is not visible.

      “In television and documentary applications, the mic is typically clipped to the subject’s clothing, such as a tie, jacket or collar or hidden under clothing to conceal the fact that the person is mic’ed. The transmitter pack which the microphone is attached to may also need to be hidden under a person’s clothing. Transmitter pouches are held on with elastic straps and hold the transmitter in various places, hidden wherever the clothing provides a non revealing space, i.e. high around the waist in the space created at the spine just above the belt line, inside the thigh under a skirt or dress, about the ankles under a pant leg, or even on the inside of a boot.”

      Here’s a video of someone removing his mic pac (4:30 into the video):


      Jacqueline may not be pointing at her mic, but it is a plausible explanation (hence the ‘?’). She is pointing at her chest area for a reason.

    Good afternoon Fame

    Like others I want to thank you for taking time to gather all these details so we the viewers (fans) can make sense of what is going on. We all appreciate this very much. I am always copying and pasting your articles and comments when debating with Anti Teresa fans. It’s very helpful. I was thinking about Cat Rodriguez and what would be her motive not to like Teresa. And then The lightbulb went on. In season 1 & 2 Teresa was given a hard time especially at the reunion because of Joes poor choices of words towards gay community. I believe Cat Rodriguez is also gay. I think when shit hit the fan in season 2 reunion and she was given insight to Melissa and her gossip and intensions to Teresa by Danielle who must have been venting. And from this point she began to plant her seeds to turn everyone against Teresa and Joe. why is Joe portrayed as this monster but her Joey Gorga who has called women some very disgusting names, including his sister, is portrayed as a good love ing husband.? I think Caroline & Jacqueline were misinformed by Cat about Teresa and what she was doing ( not) to sabotage them and so they also began to jump ship. This is why Jacqueline’s mothers twitter makes sense. I hope they all get exposed for their evil will spirit. Teresa was not my favorite by all means but I believe she is a good person, mother, friend, daughter & sister and is enduring this to get out of her money trouble. I hope she succeeds and get her own show.

      September 20, 2012 at 2:24 PM

      I think you nailed it. I think that’s why Andy doesn’t like them either. So we need to be tolerant with the gay Community (I support them) but intolerant of other peoples views/beliefs? That I don’t support. This Cat girl must really be desperate for acceptance.

    • September 21, 2012 at 11:04 AM

      I agree! I believe that Melissa will DO ANYTHING for Fame, ANYTHING!! She is just one of those girls (we all went to HS w one like her) . The way her& Joe Gorga talk about s*x is way overboard, WE GET IT JOE, your wife is hot, sexy.. Blah blah blah..( his opinion not mine) so w that I think more went on between Cat&Melissa, makes more sense when emotions r involved! Like a lil girl crush, yikes!! Why would Cat risk her fab job the way she did? Way more to story& let’s hope a cameraman caught it all on tape ! Not that I want to see it but expose Melissa for what she is ; Lying calculating willing to do anything for fame! But I’m just a mom of 3! Whatever! Stay homeon weekends!

She wants to be FAMOUS, point blank period!! Will go to any length to become a celebrity(never gonna happen but let her dumb a** think) she is so obvious, her comment when Kim called to invite her to PFS, said it all, “Oh, maybe she wants a celebrity @ PFS”?? (Something like that). REALLY???? Melissa thinks she is a celebrity, that statement just shows how crazy she is ! She lies straight to our faces each week on TV ! After reading,seeing everything makes me come to a conclusion that Melissa is in love w TRE, pure jealously! Only explanation esp after CA trip where Mego is grabbing Tre boobies& the way she acted was like in awe of Tre! IMO the Gorgas r sick people, comments by Melissa& Joe just show much insecurity. Joe makes rude crass comments that r childish. So not funny! I can go on&on w my dislike for Melissa as she really annoys me along w Manzo, Wakile(gross people) and Lauritas!

    Is it just me or does it seem odd that Melissa, after angelo walks away, and has to continue to talk about him, ONLY looks at Kathy? She says ….I know I know him….but from where? …and a couple other related sentences. But it looks like she is saying this to Only Kathy….not Kathy and T who is sitting very close to Kathy. And I dont think she looks at T at all….T being the only other person who Angelo supposedly knows….And under normal circumstances, she would ask T how SHE knows him because he acknowleged T. It makes me wonder if she couldnt look at Teresa in the eye. I mean really, people. If this happened to you..and someone else at your table obviously knew the person….wouldnt you ask them HOW THEY know him right away???? And also, I really DO think Jac was waving at Angelo…shes is just stupid enough to do that.

    • September 21, 2012 at 9:22 PM

      Good points. I was wondering the same thing. Melissa knew Angelo was there. Where was he before he walked up to the table? Was Cat keeping him in a holding room or was he roaming the place freely. The room isn’t that big, so of course Melissa saw him before he approached the table. And she purposely didn’t look at Teresa when telling Kathy how she can’t remember where she knows him from when it was obvious she should have asked Teresa what she knew since Angelo just somewhat acknowledged her. It was so fake and staged. Please read Scarlet’s comments in this article; she makes some very keen observations.

    It must have KILLED melissa when she gave a 2 page spread/interview in us weekly a few months ago and Teresa was on the cover! She was a little picture in the corner and Teresa had no involvment in it. She finally got her cover at the expense of her husbands family and as she admits in the interview this week that her daughter cries about missing her cousins. This is now 2 reunions that will be the cast AND andy AND her casts family against her. I dont know anyone who would do that. I mean even if you dont like the person (I’m a tre fan) you always have to have compassion and feel bad for someone that has everyone against her. They have been planning what they are gonna say for months. P.s. The Manzo kids are boring! They are not housewives as much as they would like to think.

    • October 1, 2012 at 7:28 PM

      Before Teresa comes on camera in the bathroom, you can hear he say ‘Oh my God’ in Italian because she didn’t want to ask Melissa about it, but the producers made her. A post production supervisor for season 4 said this about the scene:

      “Teresa was told by the producer to discuss with Melissa who Angelo said he is, but she refused to do it until pushed by Melissa.”

      The scene was staged. Melissa was in the bathroom waiting for Teresa to ask her… the producers made Teresa do it. It was all part of the setup. Melissa was acting.
