Source Says Executive Producer Cat Rodriguez Was Fired for Conflict of Interest

September 20, 2012

JerseyGirl, whose roommate is a producer for WWHL, told FameWhorgas on August 25, 2012 at 12:34 AM:

Well… okay, I don’t have a good full account to give you really, because my roommate is actually pretty tight-lipped about it, as it refers to his job. Andy is supposed to act neutral about all the housewives and is not supposed to play favorites, but it’s just known among the staff that he dislikes Teresa, particularly because of the homophobic stuff her husband has said, and also because he thinks she’s emotionally unstable. I don’t really know specifics. I think he likes the Manzos; when I suggested maybe they could leave the show, my roommate said, ‘OMG! no! They have SO many fans, their fanbase is way too huge, and it would sink the show if they left’.

I can try to ask more. I don’t think Andy sits around bitching/gossiping about the housewives… he has to act professional and is not supposed to play favorites, even though he clearly does. I asked a bit about Melissa going behind Teresa’s back to get on the show and he took the same adamant line that Melissa takes, which was, ‘Teresa knew! She knew they were going on the show! She didn’t go behind her back!’ But I think what Teresa means (this is just my own opinion) is that Melissa had been angling to get on the show for a while, and went behind her back in that aspect, and was not open about her blatant attempts to get on the show… especially when Melissa had to know how damaging it would be to their relationship if she went on the show.

I know they (the producers) have gone out with Dina… Andy LOVES her as far as I know. I’ll try to find out more, I just also don’t want to be rude and prying, since I know there are probably confidentiality things. The only other tidbit I got was that he knew ahead of time (like a few weeks ago) that there was going to be a huge explosion between Caroline and Joe.

In the photo above, tweeted by Melissa Gorga on December 4, 2011, Joe and Melissa Gorga party with their ‘favorite’ RHONJ producers. Seated between Joe and Melissa is executive producer Cat Rodrigruez, who allegedly was fired for conflict of interest. Cat was a producer for RHONJ from November 2010 – October 2011, according to her website, yet the above photo was taken in December 2011.

“Cat Rodriguez [was the ‘friend’ tweeting Jacqueline and the others, except for Teresa]. She was the only person at Penny’s salon who was also at the fashion show that would tell Jacqueline.” – Will Love, September 30, 2012, Twitter

“Andy Cohen does play a role in the editing process. He has said so directly in interviews. With that said, overall Cat Rodriguez [@yourfriendkitty] and Caroline Self [@carolineself] have the most editing power. They are the executive producers of Season 3 and Season 4 of #RHONJ. They work on location and off location. They send the editors what footage to use as well as tell them what to keep in and what to cut out. Caroline Self is tight with the Manzos while Cat Rodriguez is tight with the Gorgas and Wakiles. Cat edited @PDKhair as well as multiple ex-coworkers of Melissa’s, who were present at the salon and fashion show, completely out of the two-part finale. Their interactions made the Angelo incident look g-rated. Obviously that move was deliberate. Furthermore, Cat held Penny back from defending Kim when Joe Gorga called Kim a drug addict, a cunt and went to punch her. Even worse, as you will see in the finale, Cat completely butchered the conversation Angelo had with a friend at the bar to make it appear as though Teresa masterminded everything. The unprofessionalism of Cat Rodriguez and Caroline Self is disgusting. In this economy, why are these the type of people who have employment? Only a network like @BravoTV would believe that their viewers are so incompetent that they wouldn’t see past the blatant bias.” – Will Love, September 18, 2012, Twitter

It is rumored that Melissa likes to take a dip in the lady pond. From the looks of the photo above and the tweet to go along with it, I wouldn’t doubt that Melissa had an affair with executive producer Cat Rodriguez to secure her spot on Bravo. Joe Gorga flashes the producers and crew and gives lap dances to Andy Cohen to secure his spot.

“Cat stepped in at the Posche Fashion Show — something that is a no-no for a ‘reality’ producer — to assist in defending Melissa Gorga when things got a bit rocky after Melissa’s ex-boss from Lookers showed up!” – StoopidHousewives, August 8, 2011

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 intervening during the PFS blowout, which is what sealed her fate.

Whether Cat Rodriguez and Melissa Gorga were having an affair, and whether that played a part in Jacqueline not showing for the season 3 reunion taping, the friend doesn’t know but it seems like that would fit the equation. 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).

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!

    With the help of Caroline & Jacqueline . Don’t people know we are living in an age where everything you do will and can be put on blast? The internet exposes everyone. How does this Cat think she can get work? Was it worth ruining her career just to be scene & rub elbows with D List Celebs?

    • September 20, 2012 at 7:36 PM

      The hand on Melissa’s arm in the picture seems very possessive – wonder if they rubbed more elbows? Someone else tweeted a similar sentiment. If Cat was fired for getting (ahem) too close then can Melissa be fired too?

        Exactly- she has a ‘death grip’ on that forearm….speaks “she is MINE”.
        Can’t wait til more comes out in the wash, because people are now really beginning to speak. Always knew Andy had a hard on for Teresa because of the ‘homophobic’ statements Joe made. He needs to be fired since he is using Bravo to promote his “Gay Agenda” so vigoursly via ‘his’ shows……

          Those unfortunate comments (very distasteful and unnecessary), gave a platform to address an issue that had been long overdue. Personally, I make sure they are not spoken aloud within my earshot. Bravo has enlightened many on the subject, IMO. However, I can see them (producers & BravoAndy) writing those comments into the script – everything else has been! Plus they have complete control of what is edited, scenes being re-shot, locations, activities, conversations and all aspects of the show, nothing goes without planning.

            That photo was taken on Dec. 4, 2011, and Melissa also tweeted a group photo of the Gorgas and Wakiles partying with their ‘favorite producers’ on that night.

      I like your comment! but I read that their might of been an affair between MELISSA and CAT and I read this in an article.I can believe this and it answers many questions.Andy wont give Teresa more money.I read that last year. Jac and Caroline gets more money.And when ever there is a negative rumor about Melissa like her financial issues he brushes them of.Even the rumor of Caroline Brown Stone Mortgage problems and Jac’s husband credit cards declining rumors only heard it once on Wendy Williams show.

    OMG! If Teresa had a hand in it should no longer be the question. The question should now be why did Bravo allow this to happen. I’ve got my opinions. Everything else falls away. Set up of mass proportions on Teresa….. I don’t care if she did (not that I think she did), we’ve just watched 19 episodes of setup. We could all see she wasn’t getting a fair portrayal from day dot! Whatever happens in the next ep, I’m done. Done, done, done!

  6. Dolores
    September 20, 2012 at 7:16 PM

    The “reality” producer openly partying with certain cast members, tweeting with them and their relatives, and Andy and Bravo do nothing but fire her? Meanwhile, Melissa Gorga and her ilk gets a free pass and Teresa is vilified left and right to the point that Bravo lets f*ckwits make fun of her children on their official Facebook page. Dang it. After reading this, I am finished with RHNJ. I know I will barely be able to stomach the reunion but I will watch just to END IT. After this, unless seriosu casting changes are made, I will never watch this show again. Or WWHL. I dislike smarmy, queezy, fake Andy Cohen. I cannot wait for the day he falls. And he will.

    • September 20, 2012 at 7:31 PM

      I stopped watching Bravo other than RHONJ since I have to in order to expose the lies and deception. If you want to be heard, boycott the network.

        • September 21, 2012 at 7:46 AM

          I started this blog to call out Melissa on her lies because her lies were hurting other people. Bravo was backing her 100% so she was getting away with her despicable behavior. I was compelled to counteract the BS with the truth. Simply put, I hate liars, especially when they set out to hurt other people.

      Agree with Fame- not watching RHONJ is only part of the ‘solution’- a boycott of ALL Bravo shows, so the network as a whole is impacted is a bigger ‘punch in the gut’ to them.
      Unless something drastic happens Season 5, AND Teresa is kept on- I won’t be watching ANYTHING Bravo.

    Andy is a jerk in many way. To let actual or perceived homophobia influence his, what should be, professional opinion about the Guidices, is himself being prejudice. Did they have to answer an application for employ ment on the subject? I would doubt it.

  12. WindyCityWondering
    September 20, 2012 at 8:49 PM

    Knowing that the information regarding the producers’ behavior would come out eventually – why didn’t Bravo do a re edit of the PFS episodes? They had plenty of time before it went on air and they had the proof of Cat’s bias and cast relationships. So we have to assume that Andy knew and did nothing and by doing so has destroyed this franchise?

    • Brynn
      September 20, 2012 at 11:43 PM

    Can somebody explain to me what Teresa & Joe did for the producers for them to hate the Giuduces??

    • September 20, 2012 at 10:42 PM

      Andy is Jewish and gay. Cat may be a lesbian. Andy was offended by Teresa’s comment about her Jewish friends wondering why she didn’t leave Joe after filing bankruptcy, and he also said he was offended by Joe’s use of the F-word (plus the gaylord comment in season 1), even though Richie and Joe Gorga also use it to rib one another (it is not uncommon for people of their generation from that area of the country to use it against other straight men in jest or as a wisecrack).

      Joe and Melissa pander to the LGBT community. It’s their shtick. Who knows what BS Melissa and Joe have told the gay and lesbian producers of Bravo about the Giudices. Joe flashes the producers, and maybe more… and Melissa may be on the casting coach as well (trading sexual favors in return for career advancement).

        Everyone in northern NJ is pretty homophobic… I was raised that way and only broke of it when I got older. Or, they’re “accepting” in the sense of “oh isn’t it cute I have my gay boyfriend!” but if one of their sons/daughters turned out to be gay, they’d be disowned. The whole episode about Rich’s wedding really made me uncomfortable, frankly, they couldn’t stop saying “omg a GAY wedding! look at the GAYS! the GAYS are so cute!” It was like they were some kind of novelty.

    I am sure this sight is hard for Melissa to stomach. But is it right to rip a brother and sister apart for a chance at fame? I think these blogs are the only place for fans to hold her accountable for her actions. I for one think Melissa under esimated the passion and persistance of the Housewives fans. She needs to re evaluate her actions and make peace with her in laws. Trashing posters here simply adds fuel to the fire.

    wow, This is why Jac started acting all crazy around the time when Tres brother called her all thoes names at Kathy’s pool party( the producer was in on it). Then remember the next day when he made sure to read the text. You could tell they were all talking about it when Craig asked Melgo about it. These people are gross. I wish Tre can see her brother has a perfect match-mate and just leave them both alone. They are made for each other, they are both…well,,we can all see.

    • September 21, 2012 at 6:05 AM

      They are perfectly matched, though I think Joe Gorga could have been a decent human being had he married someone with more morals and integrity (Melissa is a pathological liar and doesn’t care who she hurts in her quest for fame). Their union is a wicked attraction.

I mean she is not too unfortunate looking, but she is not as great as she makes herself out to be. And really isn’t that young anymore either.

A Florida woman claims that the reality show’s newest member once had a sizzling love affair with her and led a hell-raising life nothing like her squeaky-clean motherly image.

        Ms Fame- off topic somewhat but, I know that there have been numerous alligations of drug use (especially noted in front of kids) about M&J gorga, and as of late, posters on SH have said they believe that ‘whipits?” were involved w/the episode of the ‘party at the shore house’ this season (whipped cream aerosol cans). Is there any more out there regarding drug use?
        I know P&J K inferred coke use in front of kids….and believe Kim D inferred the something during the ‘twitter battle’ after this past ep….. just wondering if there was anything more/new.
        “Partying” with the ‘old crew’ or things of that sort?

        • September 21, 2012 at 7:35 AM

          In season 4 episode 7, at the Gorga’s shore house party, there were many cans of whipped cream, which aroused the suspicion of viewers commenting in the blogs. Some were saying that the only reason for them to have so many cans was if they were doing whipits. It is all rumor from people commenting in the blogs.

          FW reader JerseyGirl wrote that her roommate, who works as a producer for WWHL, said the Gorgas are ‘the party people’, and go out drinking with the producers. Melissa herself proclaimed that their shore house is a ‘party house’. We saw how roudy they got in the hot tub at Kathy’s rented shore house, and how drunk they all got at the shore house party in season 4 (with the kids present).

          The drug use accusation came from an anonymous e-mail sent to SH.

          “The narcissistic Melissa and Joe Gorga may be coming after the Karagiorgis family in hopes that their bullying tactics will shut them up like it did Tre. However, this family is not stupid, nor desperate, and they know everything about Melissa from the manager who purchased her breast implants down to the hardcore drug ‘Missy’ and Joe Gorga used in the same party environment that their children were present in [multiple times].”

    Um can anyone figure out why currently, if you go to Cat’s twitter: @yourfriendkitty, even though it’s protected, her profile pic seems to be her smiling sweetly and standing in front of a giant Fabellinii display with Teresa’s face? It seems she is aware and reading this blog or others like it wherein her name is being floated around; so, is this an attempt to show us that she is actually not biased or is it a tricky attempt to disguise her true feelings about Teresa? She was at the launch likely because of her job, naturally she would take photos- but why the deliberate effort to share it publicly (subtly) and why now?

      Interesting. Anyone know when she just changed her Twitter photo? SH had a screenshot of it with a different photo on August 2, 2012. I’d say she just changed the photo to send a message, and not a positive one. Her pose in front of the Fabellini step & repeat screams sarcasm.

        Just another FameWhore, it had to be the last 24 hours. Some people just love attention, good or bad, the fact we talk about her most likely makes her happy.
        **** If she wants, I can make a scrapbook for her…

    This woman Cat is some kinda POS. not only did she insert herself into a players role in RHONJ S3 & S4 but she then butchered her doctored story arc so badly the story makes no sense to even the mot casual viewer. Sadly, it looks like the woman had some kinda career until RHONJ and she threw her career away on it. Very strange. Watching S1 & S2 you can see the difference in the story arc – the way the story unfolds. It unfolds naturally, the editors paid attention to some level of continuity. Cat just dropped the ball. Not to be crude, but since the final product was so bad, I hope she at least got a little Melissa lovin for her troubles.

    Cat should also stand as a cautionary tale for other reality producers, cast and even viewers. We all know its partial script TV. We all know it’s nod nod wink wink. But it’s only partial script and often the setups only include some of the players so others show real surprise. Also, the fallout from the viewers once the edited version airs can leave people irreparably damaged. People’s psyche isn’t built for seeing twitter bullies endlessly bash them. Sigh….. What a messed up individual this Cat is.

    Does anyone know if she was still working for bravo when she hit the step nd repeat at Teresas fabellini launch?

      On Cat’s website she lists her employment with RHONJ as November 2010 – October 2011 (taping for season 4 ended in October 2011). Melissa tweeted a photo on December 4, 2011 with Cat and other RHONJ producers, so she was still part of the team in December 2011.

    Cat butchered this show. Season 1 and 2 was so great. Cat can post her little pic all she wants. But, she was still fired. So she is the joke!! She will always be known as that! Everyone is finding out about her

    Did anyone else see that Teresa tweeted a response to Cat Rodriguez last night? Are they trying to send a message between the photograph and the tweet?

      I checked her timeline and it isn’t there, so I went to and found it. So something fishy is going on here. It makes you wonder if they are all part of the staged drama, if the fighting is all fake, and if they are playing the viewers to drive up the ratings and to sell their products.

    From Blind Gossip, using FW as a source (although uncredited):

    [Blind Gossip] This popular reality show had to fire one of its producers because of a “conflict of interest”. The producer kept interfering in established storylines to set up one of the cast members to look bad. Why would the producer do that? Well, it’s not just because they personally didn’t like the cast member. It’s because they were having a affair with the cast member’s nemesis! The nemesis is desperate for fame and will do anything – anything – to boost her popularity and her own storylines. Even more startling is the fact that both the producer and the nemesis are women! Maybe they could introduce a lesbian affair storyline for her next season.
