    Does Caroline favor her sons and dislike her daughter as much as it appears she does?

    • September 29, 2012 at 3:10 AM

      Good question! They all treat Lauren terribly! Her mother should love her and shut up about her weight, and she ought to crack down on the way those boys talk to her. A person shouldn’t have to endure ridicule in their own home.

    Why don’t you reveal the sources if you are not involved with the show any longer, it may clear up a lot of questions….?

    I have a question — They said the reunion was taped a couple weeks ago, but I find that hard to believe, too. Lauren Manzo is still overweight in the preview. A recent photo — posted September 25th — shows how much weight she’s lost. (And believe me, she looks completely different). I understand the angle would play a huge part, but it doesn’t shed THAT much off…especially in 20 days…just curious to hear your thoughts…

    Season 4 Reunion:

    * Edited by Fame-Whorgas to replace RT link of photo with FW image of same photo, which Lauren Manzo tweeted on July 22, 2012: “I love Skinny Girl.. Love that it doesn’t taste diety!!! #WWHL @BravoAndy”

    • September 28, 2012 at 10:46 PM

      I believe the reunion was taped on September 7. So it must be the camera angle.

    • September 29, 2012 at 3:26 AM

      Is it possible Lauren already gained her weight back? Also, why do those women insist on wearing such tight clothing when they aren’t built for it? They’re stuffed in there like a sausage casing. Clothing that fits is much more flattering.

    • LifeIsGood
      September 29, 2012 at 12:34 PM

      The photo where she’s holding the bottle is not new – I remember seeing it a while back (not sure when). I think she is starting to gain her weight back. Look at her face it looks much chubbier in the reunion photo.

      • September 29, 2012 at 5:00 PM

        Yep I saw that a while back also..she may have gained some weight back or the camera is said to add pounds also.

        September 30, 2012 at 9:47 AM

        That was when Tre said something about Skinny Girl and Lauren ran with it as though she was defending Bethenney. She was is and will always be ygly, because that is how she is on the inside. All 3 of the Lauritas/Manzos look huge in thatpic.

  4. September 28, 2012 at 10:46 PM

    I’d like to know if Andy Cohen is aware to what extent the producers are manipulating & conniving behind the scenes, or does he get to play the part of the ostrich & just put his head in the sand. *See no evil. Hear no evil*

    1. Was Albie’s girlfriend Lindsey a plant?
    2. Did Chris Laurita ever care about Ashlee or were his affections for TV only?
    3.There have been rumors that the real issue that Caroline had with Teresa was the problem in Punta Cana. Is the real problem with that or BLK?
    4. How did Kathy get on the show?
    5. Does Gia hate having cameras on her? It seems her agitation with her mother and father had grown between Seasons 3 and 4.

  8. September 28, 2012 at 11:24 PM

    Can you explain how the talking head interviews work? Are they semi scripted and rehearsed? Did Melissa know how her lie about babysitting was going to be used to support a false storyline? Jacqueline told quite a few lies as well in her talking heads… does this mean she knew the timelines were being manipulated?

  9. Brooklyn
    September 28, 2012 at 11:24 PM

    Is Penny Drossos and Danielle Staub coming on to RHONJ for season 5? Hopefully they will, to expose Melissa!!

    Why does Caroline hate Teresa?

  11. twitterfiend
    September 28, 2012 at 11:28 PM

    Is the Punta Cana incident really true, and if so which story? Were the women present when the fighting occured or had they already left? And was Teresa really “malicious” (meaning she did it on purpose & didn’t apologize) during the incident and the cause of the fight?

  12. September 28, 2012 at 11:29 PM

    Do the producers encourage the cast to lie to support a storyline? For example, Caroline lied about what she overhead Teresa saying to her mother over the phone about Melissa. She said that she called her a stripper, golddigger and whore. Is any of this true?

  13. September 28, 2012 at 11:30 PM

    What was the extent of Joe and Melissa’s relationship with the producers, especially Cat Rodriguez?

  14. Jeannie523
    September 28, 2012 at 11:36 PM

    Fame – maybe you can answer this as I am new to this site and I can’t seem to be able to find the answer but what I would like to know is where is the audition tape of Melissa and Joe? Another question: I know cast member sign contracts and cannot speak about what will happen. Is there a time frame when they no longer have to remain silent?

    • September 28, 2012 at 11:54 PM

      The former producer confirms that, like others, there is an audition tape for Joe and Melissa, but didn’t describe it as mafia-like. However, in it, Melissa, in a joking way, says she’ll take down Teresa. The tape apparently has never been leaked.

      From the transcript:

      Q: “So tell me about the casting of the Gorga family? Did they really send in an audition tape saying they would take down Teresa, mafia style?”

      A: “They auditioned, as does everyone. Look, it’s not like just because she is Teresa’s sister-in-law we instantly cast her because we had heard of bad blood between them. Teresa’s brother and Melissa were filmed for a short period and that was edited into a small compilation to see if they were interesting enough to be on television. This happens on every single show. Melissa does say that they will take down Teresa in the video, but in a playful manner. I’m also sure it’s been leaked onto the net, so it wouldn’t be hard to find.”

      • Jeannie5233
        September 29, 2012 at 8:06 AM

        Thank you, Fame!

        So then the only question I would have for Tuesday is about when the contracts terminate and when all the people involved can be open as to what really happens! Have a great day!

      • September 29, 2012 at 11:32 AM

        I don’t believe Jac. She’s trying to get them to keep her on because of Nicholas, and based on her tweets, she thinks Tre has worked against her (nonsense!) I think Bravo is done with her, though.

      • Brynn
        September 29, 2012 at 3:23 PM

        I thought they couldn’t reveal anything about contracts or who was asked back until it’s all said and done? How many times are they gonna allow her to break the rules?!

        September 30, 2012 at 2:15 PM

        Not true, can no body see her tweets have turned into wanting to promote herself for next season? Everything she retweets has been alonegthe line of “I hope you come back to the show to tell the world about Autism”, yeah because that’s what I want to see all over the real housewives franchise.

  17. September 29, 2012 at 12:01 AM

    Would you ask your source if the producers are allowed to offer the “stars” benefits (money, tickets to show, etc.) in order to persuade the ladies to throw one another under the bus? I get the sense this occurs, but would love confirmation.

  18. September 29, 2012 at 12:05 AM

    Many of the scenes seem scripted and staged? Are they and can you give examples? Is it true that Melissa will do whatever the producers want to stir up drama? Is it true that the producers and Andy hate the Giudices because they think she is stupid and Joe won’t play along?

  19. Connie

  20. September 29, 2012 at 12:31 AM

    What will the format be for season 5? Will Teresa and Melissa be expected to film together? How can the producers expect that to work?

  21. September 29, 2012 at 12:35 AM

    Can you tell us the names of the three woman being considered as new housewives for season 5? Is it true that Priscilla, Teresa’s hair stylist, and Alisa Maria, Melissa’s former stylist, were/are in the running for season 5?

  22. September 29, 2012 at 12:43 AM

    What is Joe and Melissa’s relationship really like? Does he talk to his wife when the cameras aren’t rolling like he talks to his sister?
    The Gorga children are hardly on camera? Why is this?
    What cheating rumors have you heard about the cast and their husbands?
    Melissa is rumored to have a lot of skeletons in her closet… which will be exposed in season 5?
    How will the stripper storyline be handled in season 5?
    What does Bravo really think about Melissa’s music career?

    • September 29, 2012 at 3:55 AM

      Does BRAVO make any money for any of Melissa’s music?

      • LifeIsGood
        September 29, 2012 at 12:41 PM

        Good one! I would go a bit further and ask if, as a “business”, she has reached the break even point. The basement studio, the services of Chris Judd, Soul Diggaz, etc. I have a hard time believing that she has brought in enough revenue to cover that nut. I’m also sure that Bravo isn’t seeing their fair share from her $10.00 CD’s she hawks at flea markets.

        • September 29, 2012 at 1:02 PM

          Building that in home recording studio is absurd. There are tons of studios in that area that can be rented by the hour. The only reason I can see for it is to keep Melissa away from as many musicians and industry people as possible. She’s not working 8 hours a day, after all.

          • isolde
            September 30, 2012 at 4:07 PM

            Did or does Bravo pay for or help offset the costs for Melissa’s “singing career”, i.e. the recording studio, Chris Judd, Soul Diggaz’ fees? If not, how much money are the Gorgas making off the sales of her CDs and how much have they spent? In other words, is Melissa just putting them into a financial hole, just for her own personal selfish quest for fame.

    Why do Andy Cohen HATE Teresa Giudice?

  24. Meri
    September 29, 2012 at 1:25 AM

    In one of Joe Gorga’s tweets after the final episode he said that Teresa knew the cameras were on in the bathroom scene and she could have stopped filming if she wanted to…that they can stop cameras, meaning the cast, if they want to. Is it true that the cast can stop the cameras? And I read on this site that Teresa did not want to go in the restroom with Melissa and ask those questions and told producers no, but Melissa insisted. Is this true? If so, this would prove to Joe Gorga that it was his wife, not his sister, that caused the whole “set up.”

    • September 29, 2012 at 1:04 PM

      Now that you mention it, Melissa had to drag Angelo’s identity out of Teresa. Remember? “Speak, Teresa!”

      • October 1, 2012 at 12:56 PM

        Oops! MELISSA SAID “Talk, Teresa!” not speak. Either way, Melissa wanted to frame Teresa and everyone, especially her “good friend” Jac, helped her. If I never see those harpies again, it would be too soon.

    • Meri
      September 29, 2012 at 10:34 PM

      Melissa caused it to escalate by calling her husband and if, she insisted on having the talk in the restroom with Teresa. I don’t think Melissa planned the “set up”, but I do think she caused it to become as big as it did and she took advantage of the opportunity to make Teresa look like the culprit.

    • Confused RHNJ viewer
      September 29, 2012 at 11:09 PM

      Only if you consider that there are many who are lining up to expose her (and, by the way, for much worse than just waiting tables/dancing in a titty bar), It’s called deflect and make myself look like a victim. But mostly, one can never predict what a narcissistic maniac might due — that’s beyond the realm of most normal people’s imagination.

    • isolde
      September 30, 2012 at 4:11 PM

      Joe Gorga tweeted that he holds his sister responsible because they can stop the cameras and tell the producers they won’t do something, and he felt Teresa should have done that regarding the bathroom scene. Is this true? I tweeted back that why then did his wife not stop the cameras, instead of insisting Teresa talk. She was already texting her husband and had met Angelo, so why didn’t Melissa stop the cameras or refuse–again, can they do that, or did Melissa then become a willing participant, in order to set Teresa up?

  25. Confused RHNJ viewer
    September 29, 2012 at 1:48 AM

    Per Teresa’s personal blog about Nicholas’s autism, “She (Jacqueline) asked me not to talk about it on camera, and even though I was asked to, I did not.”

    Did the producers ask Teresa to out this info on camera?

  26. Cass
    September 29, 2012 at 2:14 AM

    Is Jac an alcoholic? why was Caroline’s intro into the show season 4 that she doesn’t have time for drama, yet she caused either directly or indirectly most of the drama surrounding T for the entire season. I am also curious as to the Manzo children in the show. THey film constantly with the housewives but add nothing to the show. Why are they included?

  27. Tanya
    September 29, 2012 at 2:33 AM

    Can they help prove that Andy Cohen hates Teresa. It’s of popular opinion that Andy hates Teresa and can’t believe that she is the star of the show. NO ONE WANTS MELWHORE BACK!!! Fame you better hear us….NO ONE!!!! What would come of Melwhore being back on the show? So she can get to play the victim even more and try and garner public sympathy! There is no resolution to the gorga-guidice fight. Melwhore will always be jealous and spiteful. Also, how much exactly does the network get from the housewives in terms of money in their product placement?

    • Meri
      September 29, 2012 at 9:33 AM

      agreed!

  29. September 29, 2012 at 3:06 AM

    What really happened in Punta Cana?
    Why didn’t Gia go out with Melissa, Antonia, Gabriella, and Milania?
    Why didn’t Joe Gorga go to Gia’s birthday party?
    Is there any chance Dina Manzo might come back, maybe as an ally for Teresa? She’s the real fan favorite.
    Are the cousins allowed to see each other now?
    Why are Lauren & Teresa so possessive of their brothers? Neither seems to have proper boundaries. Is that an Italian thing?
    Now that Jac won’t be around, will we ever find out what happens to Nicholas? I love that kid!
    Why do the production crew members socialize with the housewives’ families?
    Is anyone ever ordered or asked to lie on camera?
    Are we ever going to get our funny, crazy Teresa back?
    Caroline won’t be back – does that mean Lauren, Albie, Chris, Greg & Ashley are out, too?

    Thanks!

      I was going through season 2 reruns and found the one where the Manzo`s hold a $1000 plate party at there home.I was stunned at the reaction from Albie over Vito and Lauren dating.He came off more possive then I have ever seen Lauren and Teresa act.I got the fact that Vito was Albie`s friend first but the Manzo kids hold a very strange outlook about their siblings.

      • September 29, 2012 at 11:39 AM

        It’s not just the Manzos, Joe Gorga is the same way about Tre when MeGo isn’t whispering in his ear. Is that a cultural thing? Would Kathy’s son behave that way about his sister?

    Hi, Was wondering if this mess is going to be addressed as per Andy as to how far this show has gone off the deep end? Especially before this 3 part reunion?

    It truly is a disgrace and knowing this is a family and how vile & hateful most of these women and others have become to take down Teresa & Family

    Also was Jay’s blogs during season 3 part of the plot to keep us off the track?

    I have went back and been viewing season 3 and when most of the voice overs or text on tv screen, you can not see the person’s mouth when some/most of the nasty comments were said about each other. That really stirred up this mess!!! I personally feel that should be addressed.

    I would like to know if Bravo lost any sponsors because of the mess Bravo produced? Think about it, a show that is based on four women and their families united to gang up on one woman, her husband and even their children.
    If I sponsored this show, I would think about Russell Armstrong and pull out for fear that the army of people ganging up on one woman could have fatal consequences. I would not sponsor this.

      I can’t stand that Andy won’t even clear T’s name in this supposed set up! It just proves that Andy hates T!

      • September 30, 2012 at 9:18 PM

        mc, I don’t have any proof, just this: one person whose roommate is a producer for WWHL commented here and said he hates her, and another person who knows a storywriter for RHOBH and RHOC e-mailed me and said the producers hate her. That’s all I know.

        • October 1, 2012 at 2:39 PM

          Oh, and this too about Cat hating Teresa, but I don’t have anything from the ex-producer about Andy’s feelings regarding Teresa:

          “In relation to Cat Rodriguez sending a tweet to Teresa: “She would of been asked to make it public by the producers. They are aware of the what is being said on Twitter and blogs. Cat hates Teresa and Teresa knows it. I don’t know for a fact, but I can bet Cat was told to appear mutual to squash the rumors and Teresa would of had to go along with it.” – Former RHONJ Post Production Supervisor, September 23, 2012

    September 29, 2012 at 7:29 AM

    Specifically, what led to the dismissal of Cat Rodriguez?
    a) Was she the the person texting the Housewives during the Posche Fashion Show?
    b) Were she and Melissa Marco involved in a relationship that went outside the bounds of professional colleagues?

    Also, in your opinion, what would be the logical story arc the series will take during season 5?

  36. holy cannoli
    September 29, 2012 at 7:39 AM

    Jacqueline said on twitter she was asked back for season 5, Why?

    Is it because Bravo won’t fire her because she has a special needs child, and are afraid they will look bad?

    Jacqueline quit a ton of times on twitter, her parents confirmed this. Also drunk tweeted all the deets about thePFS and season 4, besides blowing off the filming of the season 3 reunion.

    Seems to me that would be complete favortism on Bravos part!!

    Also do you know what is going to go on for season 5? All the ladies hate Teresa..

    • September 29, 2012 at 11:42 AM

      I think Jac lied about being asked back because she’s hoping they’ll change their minds and keep her because of Nicholas.

    • LifeIsGood
      September 29, 2012 at 12:47 PM

      Bravo will probably allow her a graceful exit. They’ll allow her to “lie” and say that she was asked back but declined. The Manzo’s and kathy will probably be given the same courtesy.

      I believe they do. They have to submit them and bravo will tweak them. I think Teresa put that up on Facebook. That they didn’t publish all that she wrote and so she put the missing info on her personal site.

        And why bother having a blog response if Bravo is going to only allow the responses they want? My posts are not put up lately…they are pro Teresa, but I am careful not to bash Bravo. I noticed very negative posts up against Teresa and few pro Teresa posts this week.

    My question would be for Andy. If he supposeably doesn’t dislike Teresa then why is her Fabellini bottle the only one turned around on his WWHL show so we can’t see the label, but all the bottles show the front label? It’s like he isn’t willing to promote her?

    Why is Andy so anti – Teresa when she pulls in viewers and Bravo gets a cut from her product lines? Which have to do better than crappy dirty water or itunes songs.

    Was the tabloid storyline an attempt to prove that Teresa owed Bravo money for her participation?

    1. WTF is up with all these NJ shows with people from mob families or have mob connections? Why in the last 5 years has there been so many shows with these people at the forefront? RHONJ, Jersey Shore,

    2. Who ultimately makes the decisions on what gets aired or not on Bravo? Andy Cohen or someone higher up? Whose ass does Andy Cohen kiss?

    3. What are your thoughts on the illuminati? Do certain networks have an agenda that goes beyond entertainment and advertising revenue? Some ex reality stars such as Tila Tequila have recently spoken up about mind control amongst celebrities and how if they didn’t follow the orders of a network (in her case MTV), they would be casted in a bad light or worse things would happen. She also said her ex fiance Casey Johnson who died gave her inside information about certain things before her death. Tila may just be a fame whore, but I’m not so sure she’s lying about things that happened to her and Casey.

    Why was footage of Penny Drossos left on the editing room floor?

    Is this true:

    “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 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. ”

      Yes, I would like to know that one too, Fame. Her husband claims that this was used as the enticement for them to cooperate at the show and keep their mouths shut. He clearly is angry on Twitter about it. Who actually contacted Angelo? Was it Penny and John? Did Bravo want to expose Melissa’s past, and when did it seem to switch to blame Teresa, and set her up? Who made the decision to chop up Angelo’s conversation to implicate Teresa, or was he just out and out lying about Teresa, since he never met her before, and she didn’t know about him or Melissa’s background?

    my question is this: Is Andy Cohen really a huge shit stirrer who pretends to be a jovial, fun loving “everyman”, or is he a nice guy?

    What’s the deal with Anderson Cooper and Mark & Kelly Ripa and their relationship with Andy? It seems they are in cahoots with Bravo to keep the drama going with the housewives’ feuds?

    Here is what some are saying about it:

    “Andy Cohen and his team of sinister producers activated the chip they implanted in Anderson Cooper’s brain, then fed him talking points, and then watched as he eviscerated their prey [Teresa].”

    “I just can’t help but wonder if this is all a brilliant ruse by Bravo (and the cast) to garner sympathy for Tre to help her product sales (which also boosts Bravo’s bottom line) and keep the show relevant since no one on it has any sort of story line of their own outside of hating Tre.”

    “I thought of that, too, that the bullying of Tre would rally her troops to support a spinoff show.”

      Anderson Cooper has allowed his involvement with the Real Housewives franchise to drag him down some notches below “professional” journalist.

    2. What is the real reason that Caroline doesn’t speak to many of her siblings?
    3. What is the process a woman must go through to get cast as a real housewife? How long does that take? Just wondering because I know Tre was mad that Mel didn’t let her know that she was going to be on the show. In reality she probably had a long time to tell her and just chose not to.
    4. What was Mel’s relationship like with Tre before the show?
    5. What is Mel’s relationship really like with her mother and father in law?
    6. What is Tre’s relationship really like with Joe’s family? I heard that Shiela used to hate Tre and was wondering if you could explain that further.

  53. September 29, 2012 at 11:14 AM

    Is it true that Melissa stalked producers for three years, trying to get cast? Why did Bravo pass on them for the first two seasons?

    It seems as if the fourth season was an after-thought. The cast pictures and bios from the previous season where re-used. The rush to film it while season three was airing had to be a disruptive point of contention for all involved. Whose idea was it to (shall we say) 1/2 ass the last season, to put far less focus on the stars of the show and allow things to become too contrived and producer driving?

    Was the incident in Punta Cana which resulted in cast members being held by authorities filmed and will there ever be further information released regarding it? Exactly how did the fight start?

  59. September 29, 2012 at 12:37 PM

    Is it an open secret that one or both of the Manzo brothers are gay? If so, is Andy involved in keeping one or both in the closet, and why? Also, if so, was /is GregB the lover of either?

      interesting. T said that Dina said to her Caroline has skeletons in her closet regarding marriage. I always thought her husband is either annoyed or not that much supportive of her.

    September 29, 2012 at 2:53 PM

    This is what I’d like to know once and for all…WHY did Melissa and her hubby join the HWONJ KNOWING there was family issues with Teresa? Especially since it was basically Teresa’s show. It’s obvious the show out Teresa on a pedestal, then decided to villainize her during the last couple seasons. I know they are all trash, but I think it’s a despicable for the network to play with people’s lives like that. To present them all funny and cute, and then add elements that put people on the defensive. it’s like adding a kitten in a cage full of dogs. Not that I’m defending Teresa because I think she’s so worthless as a person. they all are in my opinion. Anyway, the point I’m getting at is why can’t everyone see right through Melissa, she says all these things about Tre, yet, knowing all this she came into Tre’s playground, and basically stole the spotlight, and ON TOP OF IT, is now making her look like a total looney, which granted, she is, but they all are, not just Tre. Just seems odd that Andy Cohen, Anderson Cooper, and the media question and put teresa on the spot, but they don’t the others. WHY???!!

    September 29, 2012 at 5:03 PM

    1) Events. Are the Housewives obligated, contractually, to invite a certain number of the other housewives to events that they throw. Are they contractually obligated to attend?

    2) Friends. Are the Housewives allowed to be filmed with a certain number of “normal” friends in their lives — i.e. how does the show navigate filming other people who are not being paid by Bravo to appear on the show?

    3). Trips. Do the Housewives receive any added monetary incentive for going on trips with the other Housewives (this seems to be a staple of every season). Does Bravo pay for travel, lodging, dining on these trips?

    4) Enemies. How do you balance a Housewives’ level of ‘toxicity’; i.e. how, if in any way, do you navigate the dynamics of a show when all of the Housewives refuse to film with another one (like Danielle). Are they contractually obligated to keep filming with a Housewife if they don’t want to?

    5) Casting. Do the Housewives undergo any kind of psychological testing or background checks prior to being cast? Would any history of violence or abuse (such as in the case of Taylor Armstrong) be subject to disclosure before entering the Housewives’ home to film? If a Housewife has a business or product, how does Bravo decided how that business will be incorporated into the show?

    6) Past Fame. Years ago, Dina Manzo and Caroline were featured on a wedding documentary for Vh1. Bethenny Frankel also appeared on Celebrity Apprentice before joining the Housewife franchise. Does past experience in reality tv help, hinder, or in any way affect the decision to cast a woman as a housewife?

    7) Cast and Crew. To what extent do the producers interact with the cast on the day-to-day level of filming? I.e., do the producers encourage housewives to re-shoot certain scenes, to say certain things, or do they send them information about other members of the cast that we do not see on camera? Are producers required to intervene if they see any illegal activity, i.e. underage drinking, drug use, etc.

    Is that why he’s punishing the Giudices, to make examples of them because of Juicy’s slurs? Are others favored for the opposite reason?

    What is the real story with taping at La Chateau Allure? Were any of the other housewives told to come and then backed out? Did Teresa suspect she was being setup before or after arriving? Did the producers plan all along to use this scene to setup Teresa? Did the cast know what happened there before they got to the PFS or did they not find out Angelo outed Melissa at the salon until Cat texted them at the show? Was Cat the only producer that inserted herself into the drama? Did the producers edit the footage to intentionally create backlash for Angelo, Kim D and Penny & Johnny?

    Why not expose the fact that Joey Gorga met Melissa at Lookers and not Spring break in Cancun. Wtf would he be doing at spring break anyway. He’s not a college kid.

  71. September 29, 2012 at 8:34 PM

    Melissa pretended she didn’t know Monica Chacon when she came with Kim G to the Gorga’s Christmas party in season 3, and then gave herself praise for kicking Monica out of their home to ‘show support’ for Teresa. However, online reports say otherwise. Did Melissa conspire with producers to invite Monica to cause distress for Teresa? Was Joe Gorga in on it?

    “Missy and Bravo TOGETHER invited Kim G with Monica Chacon.”

    “Kim G. did not invite me to Melissa’s party,” said Monica Chacon, who is outraged over having been set up for a public fallout. “I went as Kim’s guest after a producer of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ invited me to a charity event, supposedly with the consent of the hostess, Melissa Gorga.” I was also assured that Teresa would not be at the event since she and Melissa did not get along. Without getting into specifics which are irrelevant at this point, Bravo should be ashamed of themselves for setting someone up who did not sign up to be a part of the show or have a venue with which to defend myself. There are always three sides to every story. But as far I knew, I was simply going as a guest to a charity event. It is unbelievable how everything unfolded.”

I wouldnt be surprised if MElissa was in on the set up because she was quick to conclude that Teresa was behind it, but ‘supported’ Teresa unconditionally at Napa and left with Teresa and Jo.

    It seems like the producers realize that Joe Gorga is completely brainwashed and controlled by his wife, and they take advantage of this by using voiceovers, taking scenes out of sequence, and other editing tricks to convince him that Melissa is telling the truth when she lies about Teresa. This would mean they are intentionally causing the destruction of Teresa’s and Joe Gorga’s relationship. How do they justify doing this?

    “She feeds him lies and then let’s him loose on his family. Joey is so obviously pussy whipped that it is sad to see this poor excuse of a man say such abusive things about his sister. All I can say is if the Marcos think that Joey is so wonderful after the way he treated his sister on national, no, international television, then all I can say is that ‘like really does attract like’ and trash belongs together. Sammy, defend him all you want, but like Smelly Kat said, when you hang with garbage you start to smell like it.” – NonnaGabi, AllAboutTRH

    “He probably doesn’t know how to read and has no idea what the trashbag sisters are saying on his Twitter account. Besides, Melissa tells him what to say anyway: ‘Joe, tell my sister she’s your real sister. Use those exact words’.” – Seven, AllAboutTRH

    It’s pretty clear that Andy Cohen hates the Giudices; he uses the editing to make Teresa look stupider than she is, and Joe more awful than he is. The way he treats them, it makes it seems like he wants them off the show. But why is that? Whether he likes them or not, Teresa is the reason why the show is still going. Is Andy really trying to get the Giudices off the show? And if he isn’t, why is he so biased against them, that it appears that’s what he’s trying to do?

    I would like to know why the producer’s think it’s ok to show TG’s kids in a bad light? Let me say that as a mom to 5 kids ageing from 13 to 5 months all kids have moments where they act out, get mouthy, bossy exc….don’t go after kids!!!
    also are they paying Tre more because of the role they are putting her in and as a way to keep her from going after bravo?

    OT: but I’m sitting here watching rhonj reunion s1 and domc is saying that Danielle stab is the reason for all of her family drama but fast forward to S3&4 and it’s all Tre’s fault!!! I think dom c can’t own up to her own actions and feels the need to point the finger at everyone else to make herself feel better. Also Lauren manzo’s salon will only survive because of dom c!! I am a mua and her work is far from up to par!!! Gi back to school Lauren!!!!

    I have been trying to post here and never see my comment, I will try one more time. I am using a different email address because someone suggested that may be the reason, which I don’t know why it would be.
    I am so disgusted with Jacqueline.
    I read this post http://photoshoppedpics.wordpress.com/2012/09/30/wacko-jaco-deleting-tweets-called-teresa-white-trash/

    Jacqueline called Teresa white trash and had the nerve to bring up a conversation that Teresa talked to her about when they were friends. The blogger made a good point when he or she showed the tweet for the second time when Jacqueline asked if she left the part out about baby Joey.

    Even if Teresa did say it, why would she say that about Gabrielle? Jacqueline is scum as far as I am concerned.
    Does anyone know which Autism program Jacqueline is representing? They need to know about this. I’m sorry, but this is the wrong person to be the voice for any cause.

    I heard that Lysa Simpson left a comment on a blog before the housewives came out and someone said it was here where she was actually dumb enough to sign her name Lysa Simpson. Which post is that?

    Q: Is Andy well-liked by everyone at the network? IE: He received a “promotion” that is telling in how it limits his input & direction within the hierarchy.

    He has had his finger on the pulse of pop culture well before most network execs-and understands the importance of social media. Does anyone think he has gone too far, especially considering the obvious gay slant Bravo has been focusing on for years.

    Why if Melissa and Kat did’t told Teresa about joining the show, why the producers stay silent also, was this a ploy then to make Teresa angry on purpose, that tells me the producers of the show already new of the problems in the family and wanted to exploit that for rantings, so that means, Teresa was setup from the beginning..

    Is Bravo considering anything in the way of a spinoff for Rosie Pierri, since Andy Cohen seemed enamored by her and her personality? If so, did her vile threats at the reunion make them reconsider, since she seems very angry and volatile? What did Bravo think of Rosie’s threats at the reunion, were they appalled?

    When Teresa revealed the texts that Jacqueline sent her, Teresa texts about someone setting her up at the Posche Fashion show, but crosses out a name, whose name did she black out? Also, Jacqueline does not argue that point, but responds in her text, “none of us are safe”, so she is acknowledging that Teresa was set up. So, my questions are…why did Jacqueline promote the idea that Teresa set up Melissa? …what did Jacqueline mean by the statement that yeah, none of us are safe?…Caroline was smiling and laughing at the fashion show table when the women were all texting each other …so, was she part of the scheme to turn this into a setup of Teresa?

    Also, since Bravo took delight in airing Joe Giudice’s phone call, making it appear he was/is cheating on Teresa …has Bravo any other footage indicating cheating by him or the other cast members? Have they caught any of the other men or women in situations of meeting with or flirting with other people? If so, why did they only single out Teresa and Joe’s relationship?

    When Bravo knew that the producers, Cat and Caroline were biased and manipulating footage, why didn’t they go through the other footage, and re-edit, so that the actual truth was portrayed?

    Will Bravo do any “lost footage” of Season 4, and will they show footage that will be more favorable to Teresa, without the biased editing?

    Why are Caroline and Lauren and Al(?) taking an apartment in Hoboken, so far from Cafface and the Brownstone? What is the real status of these businesses? Does Bravo have any plans to feature the Manzo family in a spinoff, and is this why they are all moving closer together, so it is filmed in Hoboken? (I hope they realize that this would be a huge mistake, and I would stop watching Bravo altogether if they did)

    Don’t the people at Bravo realize that Caroline Manzo and her kids (to a lesser degree) are bullies? Each season, she has made someone the target to talk about and name call behind their back, and confront in an argument with name calling (Danielle and Teresa)

    What really happened with Dina Manzo leaving the show, and what did she want the rest of the cast to do when she didn’t want to film with Danielle? Did Dina want the others to back her up and get Danielle off the show? Did they refuse, and this was the issue between Caroline and Dina?

    Have the legal issues over the incident in Punta Cana been resolved finally? The Chicago men were suing members of the cast, has this been resolved?

    What, if anything, did Andy Cohen say or do, when Melissa puts her hands on Teresa at the reunion? Did any of the men get into an altercation verbally or physically, at the reunion? Did they keep them all separated until they appeared on camera?

    Did they try to get Dina or Danielle to come to the reunion, and if so, why didn’t these women come? Dina, I get why not, but I would have thought Danielle would have.

    Sorry, but there is so much that I would like to know to see where Bravo stands on this and the conflict they have helped to cause.

    I know the producers were pro Manzo-Gorga-Lauritas, but what about other production staff, cameramen, etc., especially when they saw Caroline and Jacqueline, Melissa and Joe, attacking Teresa? Didn’t anyone feel bad that they were ganging up on Teresa? Did Teresa ever breakdown off camera, since she doesn’t want people to see her cry? If so, did she ask them not to show it, or they chose not to show it, so she came across as she wasn’t affected or didn’t care?

    • Meri
      September 30, 2012 at 8:29 PM

      I would like the answer to this question, also. I just can’t believe someone on the Bravo staff isn’t repulsed by the way Teresa was attacked for two long seasons and how editing put a bad light on the entire Giudice family. Does anyone on the Bravo staff have any morals or values?

      “I know the producers were pro Manzo-Gorga-Lauritas, but what about other production staff, cameramen, etc., especially when they saw Caroline and Jacqueline, Melissa and Joe, attacking Teresa? Didn’t anyone feel bad that they were ganging up on Teresa?”

    1. Is the ill treatment of Tre simply b/c Tre cannot express herself well at times and it makes for great entertainment to see what she will say when provoked like poking a stick in the face of a helpless, caged Tiger?
    Is it a smug, elitist view driven by 2 powerful, jaded female Bravo execs and a misogynist gay guy?

    2. Does the face of Bravo truly believe that most viewers are ignorant, uneducated females who cannot recognize the bias and predjudice being overtly shown toward Tre and Joe G.? Unbelievable!

    3. Why is the hypocrisy of all the players except Tre and Joe G. encouraged, protected and accepted repeatedly? Tre and Joe G. are not let off the hook for anything they say or do yet far worse things by the others is given a wink and a nod.

    4. Can I force Bravo to pay for my upcoming HWectomy before it’s too late?

    • October 1, 2012 at 12:55 PM

      Andy Cohen and Bravo are in this for ratings, never considering Teresa’s feelings and
      they should be aware of the destruction this could cause – she is already reaching out for help
      what more can they do to her? I think it’s time they help her and get this situation resolved
      so people can move forward and make a better RHONJ show, it’s too awful to watch –

    If this website is commited to exposing the truth, why are all the comments pro-Teresa? She is clearly as dumb as a box of hair. And her husband is no better. They’re both SO dim, not that any cast member is a Mensa candidate, mind you.

    Also, why do cast members swear on the lives of their children? It’s ridiculous.

    Another question: Does Teresa know she’s likely The Missing Link? (I realize, of course, that she won’t have any idea what that means. Sad.)

    • October 1, 2012 at 1:47 AM

      What truth can you contribute? The comments are pro Teresa because the majority of contributors can see through the Bravo charade and are appalled at the volume of hate levelled at one family with immense hypocrisy. If people who don’t support Teresa would care to comment here, I know that I, as a regular poster, would welcome it, checking the insults at the door which is very rare i.e. “She is clearly as dumb as a box of hair” or she is “The Missing Link”. Always up for a good, constructive, enlightening, evidentiary debate. Unfortunately, the anti Teresa folk are yet to bring that. Maybe you’re up for it C. I know I for one have never said Teresa is the epitome of perfection.

          Oh my question:
          1) since Andy sees how much stripper gate has damaged this family (until the reunion I wasn’t sure if bravo & the cast were just playing out a storyline but u can see the hurt is real) why doesn’t he speak up about the setup? Even if he does it off camera.
          2) since we know each major character is assigned a producer to build out the story arc they agreed to at contract, can ur source speak to how the producers work together to mesh the individual story arcs?
          3) the source made note of Jac being “the good friend”, and not storylined for merchandising or product deals. Hw is this decision made? Are the characters asked before hand what commercial endeavors they hope to achieve? Details please…

            I’m sorry one more q: a lot of the women (on all shows) rely on the old “I have emails, I have texts” yet the only one I’ve ever heard as having third party confirmation are the exits and emails between melissa & danielle. Do the producers compel the women who have made these claims to show proof? Or at least does the producer assigned to the maligned character try to further the storyline to include proof – like reality? (lol I know how dare I expect reality) I’m just amazed at how much is allowed to slip by unproven.

  98. October 1, 2012 at 12:47 PM

    Why doesn’t Andy Cohen inform everyone at the Reunion that Teresa did not set up Melissa,
    and that it was set up by Cat Rodriguez to get Teresa in trouble, also why doesn’t he tell people
    to leave Teresa and Family alone. He knows that Melissa and Kathy joined to hurt Teresa,
    why not ask them reason for this. Why doesn’t he ask what the real reason Jacqueline and Caroline are mad at Teresa – Black Water (Teresa wasn’t interested in partnership) and money making opportunities (Teresa had these first) – wouldn’t this help explain why these women are
    so mad at Teresa, and aren’t mad over Melissa?

    How much did Bravo spend on launching Melissa as a singer? Did the network pay for the basement studio? Did Bravo pay the songwriter, Soul Diggaz, Chris Judd, or are they doing it free for the publicity? What’s the total of iTunes downloads for her songs and how much does she make per download? What is Bravo’s cut? Is Bravo serious with these HWs trying to break into the music industry or are they just amusing the viewers with this storyline?

      Fame – Is it too late to ask a question? I just thought of this awhile ago. Jacqueline made all kinds of gestures at the Reunion while people where shouting at each other and proclaimed “This is what it was like behind the scenes!” or something to that effect. I would be curious to know how did everyone act towards either while cameras were not rolling – especially during the Napa trip when everyone was supposedly getting along with the exception of Caroline and Teresa? Surely the production crew were witness to the REAL behavior towards each other. Thank you.

    I want to know why Caroline is always so miserable, she never has a kind thing to say to anyone uinless she feels like she will get a new buddy to spread garbage around about Theresa? Why is Melissa even on this show, she and her husband are ridiculous and its so obvious that they want Theresa off so (as they might think) can be the STARS of the show. When are you going to get rid of them and turn this show from a Theresa bashing session to A housewives show as it was intended. I am pretty sure if we dug deep enough we can find trash on any one of these cast members, why is it that only Theresa and Joe get all the BS? I want to know is Bravo really doing this, because if they have set all this up to get viewers than God help them because you can not ruin peoples lives for money and think it will be forgotten. One more question, why is Jacqueline with all her money not taking this autistic child to O.T and Speech therapy and special ed and therapists, I have a grandson who is diagnosed at the age of 2 and ever since He has been getting help, I have gotten every opportunity available helping him. He had speech therapy at 2 and in special Ed at 3. Jacqueline should not have time to be on a stupid show if she is in fact working with this child. Its a 24/7 job. Anyway, I guess thats it but I will tell you that I am starting to dislike every player except Theresa, she may not be the smartest or even the prettiest but I feel like she is a strong,dedicated woman who even if Joe goes to jail will contineue on and not complain to everyone who will listen, I love her and I praise her for acting like a lady and not an uneducated bitch like the rest of them do, especially her ass of a cousin and Carolines ridiculous daughter who can not stop crying about her fat, be a woman and own who u are, and Caroline should support that, she is so mean no wonder the kid can’t stand herself.

    Why do you hate Teresa so much?
    Why would you portray Melissa as a perfect person and never question her motives, her past, her finances? Why would you want Teresa fans to hate her & possibly stop watching the show. Why can’t you show all Melissa’s dirt ? That would be fun for Teresa fans.
