Joe Gorga is Not a Real Estate Developer – He’s a Landscaper Who Also Installs Pools and Does Stucco Work

January 2, 2013

“He [Joe Gorga] is one of the best developers in New Jersey… Joe surprised me with the plans for this 15,000 SF home for Christmas. I was beside myself. I was crying. It was like this amazing thing. But my sister-in-law never said my house was beautiful. It’s like, eh, crickets… as Joe and I built his business together, their [his and Teresa’s] relationship started to diminish and my relationship with Teresa started to get competitive. ” – Melissa Gorga, Season 3 Episode 1

A blind gossip item from December 13, 2012, says a reality TV star is faking wealth and success. Here is the story:

Hot Scandals Brewing For Fake Housewife

I know, I know, this could describe almost every single one of the reality TV stars of late, right?! Being rich seems to be the exception and not the rule.

This little blind item tidbit has to do with a more up and coming Housewife/reality TV star and that’s all we can say about that.

The alleged dirt:

“Mrs. X has several kids from (possibly) two different baby daddies and there may be another on the way. Her husband, who has been touted as a “very wealthy man” doesn’t quite live up to that title (when do they ever?!). His profession is not what it has been presented as. He is actually a general laborer of sorts. Considering that the application process for many reality shows include a full and lengthy questionnaire on financial details, it’s safe to assume they may have fudged the numbers a bit – or a lot. They borrow luxury brand items to make it seem like they have the best of the best – including clothing. The show may have a hot scandal on its hands since he reportedly has wandering hands and she and the kids spend a lot of time at a friend’s house because of it.”

It sounds like it is Joe and Melissa Gorga.

Joe Gorga must be taking tips from Chris Laurita on how to spread your money around to different business accounts so it’s harder to track when you use company funds for personal expenses. Here is an excerpt from the lawsuit filed against Chris and his brother Joseph explaining how the Lauritas embezzled funds from their company Signature Apparel:

Chris Laurita and his brother Joseph directed Signature’s vendors, including certain of the petitioning creditors, to make payments to certain of the Laurita’s other companies of funds that were rightfully owed to Signature Apparel LLC. They also directed Signature to pay the personal expenses of, and make outright payments to, the other Laurita family members (Jacqueline and other family members accepted funds they knew belonged to Signature and for which they each knew they had performed no services and/or provided no value). Instead of being used to sustain and develop Signature’s business, pay Signature’s vendors and creditors, Signature’s assets were misused to make outright and unjustified payments to Laurita family members, and to fund the operations of the Laurita brothers’ other companies and business ventures.

After Signature’s bankruptcy, Chris and Joseph conveyed the Licenses away from Signature while retaining for themselves a percentage of gross fees from the licenses, further damaging Signature and effectively rendering the Company an empty shell with no means to pay its creditors [coordinating the transfer of the Rocawear License and the Artful Dodger Licenses to a third-party, as a new license, while retaining for themselves, rather than Signature, a percentage of the gross fees from the Licenses]. That transfer provided Chris and Joseph with continuing income from the Rocawear and Artful Dodger Licenses, while reducing Signature to an empty shell with little or no means to pay its debts or continue its business.

The other Laurita companies at the time included Pyramid Trading, Inc., Pyramid Trading Corp., Retail Solutions, Four Brothers Retail and Cool Five LLC (collectively referred to as the “Laurita Pyramid Companies” ). From the lawsuit:

Chris and Joseph failed to respect the separate legal existence of Signature Apparel LLC and the other Laurita companies and treated the assets of those companies as if those assets were Chris and Joseph’s own personal assets.

Chris and Joseph, in concert with one another, have wrongfully siphoned corporate funds from Signature which resulted in Signature becoming grossly undercapitalized to the point of financial extinction, while amassing personal assets for themselves and their family members. To this day, Chris and Joseph, while claiming the financial crises of Signature, still drive luxurious vehicles, own buildings and residences, and have assets which may be worth millions of dollars. Signature was so controlled and dominated by Chris and Joseph, and its separate legal existence so ignored, that Signature primarily transacted the personal business of Chris and Joseph, and is therefore a mere instrumentality and the alter ego of Chris and Joseph.

With their new venture blk., the Laurita’s already have more than one company name associated with it:

Blk Brands LLC
blk.beverages, LLC

What is it called when you steal money from a company? Answer: it is called fraud, theft or embezzlement, take your pick, these crimes are all felonies.

Hat Tip: Thank you long-time FW reader Sackem for the tip!

      I’m willing to bet that he doesn’t even own those properties that he told Melissa about. Because if he did, why doesn’t he put that information on his website that he is also owns rentals and such. Either his “investors” or people who he borrowed money from took those buildings from him. Or he never owned them in the first place and was working for someone else.

        It wouldn’t make sense for him to put that info on his landscaping business website. Not saying I don’t agree with you in some respects about the properties he pointed out on the show. It may have been Fame who did an in-depth blog about his dirty dealings in real estate. I don’t recall if it included those properties, but I would assume he didn’t purchase them outright. There is some sort of financing, whether it be investors or with bank loans.

      The Melissa messy past may not get in, I think Andy doesn’t care for the Guidices, but Bravo gets cuts from books that the wives put out and he he will get a cut of Melissa’s book too. Teresa is a money maker and PR star, yet talk is Andy doesn’t like her, so I won’t be surprised not to see the history of Melissa make it on air, it may get edited out and Teresa will look even worse trying to get the info out. I think Andy may have a plan to make Tre look even worse so that her fans leave her, and she will fail with her products. But to me Tre with all her quirky comments and such is more interesting than any of the others, and I would watch her on a cooking show, or some other show with her and her kids.

        January 2, 2013 at 4:30 PM

        Andy may try to ruin Tre, but blogs like this keep all the fans up to date on the real deal. I don’t think Tre has anything to worry about. She handles herself well, particularly in not bashing people, but just talking about family and food which is what we really wanted anyway. Not all the mud slinging.

      • dch60
        January 2, 2013 at 4:52 PM

        This is what doesn’t make sense to me. Teresa’s products do better than most of the housewives… probably by a large margin. Why would Andy but off his nose to spite his face? Bravo has to know they will make more money from Teresa’s books than any Melissa or Caroline have published. If Andy is trying to destroy Teresa it has backfired. There are sooo many that say they weren’t a fan of Teresa’s until her family came on the show and even more so, since the bullying season 4. Teresa is also one of the highest paid housewives and the highest paid on NJ. It is apparent that Andy doesn’t like Teresa and targets her at the reunions and such but it just doesn’t add up. It is so conflicting it raises a lot of questions in my mind.

          I agree that (on the surface) any dislike, much less outright hatred, that Andy Cohen might have towards the Guidice’s seems totally illogical. However if you pay close attention, Andy’s attitude has changed dramatically over the years – from amusement to “in love” (when T’s fame rose, her products sold & viewers began tuning in – whether it was to witness her crazy antics like flipping tables or out of loyalty & support) to annoyance & then outright despising the Guidice’s. The latter two having EVERTHING to do with homosexual slurs made by Joe G. on & off camera & T’s refusal to publicly excoriate her husband. Andy is Rabidly political on Gay Issues and this was “crossing the line” behavior in his eyes. You can clearly see this for yourself by reviewing the footage from the past reunions & when T has been a guest on WWHL. Andy now regularly calls both Joe and T out, pointedly questioning how they can claim “ignorance”, “accident”, “misunderstanding” & “miscommunication” for all of their “slurs” & “bias” & “gay bashing”…….and then is completely incredulous (& lately the disgust/hatred on his face is barely concealed) as first Joe, then in more recent years both Joe & T, insist that they “love & support the gay community” and Andy shifts in his seat looking as if he wants to both puke & pummel Joe Guidice as Joe makes horrifically awkward attempts to prove that he’s “down with the homos” & that “fag is a term of endearment”. (Yikes! !)

          I am NOT speaking of my own beliefs or political affiliations whatsoever. …This is absolutely a restating of ANDY COHEN’S beliefs and politics and an unbiased rendering of the Guidices’ behavior. These observations have been supported, if not verified, by Bravo/RHONJ staffers, insiders & others.

          Again. …if you want to see it unfold for yourself, then just review the Reunions & WWHL. ..the progression (whether you go forwards or backwards in time) is staggering, startling & sad. The Guidice’s filled out their own pink slips with playground trash talk.

  3. January 2, 2013 at 7:51 AM

    Great read! I feel like we haven’t heard much about the Laurita bankruptcy. Weren’t they called for depositions or is that still pending? When is Juicy going to court – it’s dragging on forever!

      January 2, 2013 at 8:23 AM

      I know, I heard the Lauritas were called for deps also. I think in Dec. early part maybe? I have heard nothing more..Hmm

      I think the last I read about Joe Guidice was his court date is coming up this month, like the 8-or 13 seems to come to mind.

      • January 2, 2013 at 8:33 AM

        Yep and the media will focus on that and not Wacko’s court.

        January 2, 2013 at 8:44 AM

        Depositions have been suspended pending all motions, from all parties, to be heard on March 14th, 2013. Once all motions are decided which could take weeks, months, then Fact Discovery, as well as expert testimony and depositions, will commence with an appropriate time table due to the Federal Bankruptcy court. By the time all is said and done, this case will probably not come before the Court until well into 2014.

        While this is disappointing, to say the least, and more than likely none of this will be filmed by Bravo as I doubt any of the many attorneys and representatives for all of the parties involved would agree to it, let alone the Court, I am willing to bide my time and wait and see. I have made it very clear several times how much I want to see justice done – especially for those hardworking people who lost their jobs. If the Lauritas are guilty – karma will come around. It will be worth the wait.

          Just to show how long these lawsuits can drag out and to give a little more background click this link to an article written in the Wall Street Journal in 2011, which also explains the JayZ link and what the Lauritas allegedly did to him – I’m sure he’s not too happy with them. Signature Apparel filed for bankruptcy in 2010.

          http://blogs.wsj.com/bankruptcy/2011/11/04/maker-of-jay-z%E2%80%99s-rocawear-dragged-into-real-housewife-bankruptcy-drama/

          It is very important, especially in this case, that all the t’s are crossed and all the i’s are dotted. Chris has already admitted to lying to authorities; both he and has brother as well as the others named in the suit have filed delay after delay in giving their depostions as well as presenting requested company records; files have gone missing; and possible evidence tampered with – not really smart when dealing with the Feds. They don’t like being messed with, so consequently, THEY don’t mess around – if there is any truth to all of this – they will find it out and will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

          January 2, 2013 at 9:27 PM

          I worked with the disitrict court system for 25+ years before my present (much more relaxing employment), if one has the resources, cases can be continued “almost” forever. Federal Court seems less forgiving. But, remember the Laurita’s were forced into this “business bankruptcy” in 2009. I am also aware of the way a hurricane can disrupt a court docket. In my opinion, this case will not be heard until 2015.

          I still do not understand suspending the depositions. Depositions are usually done at an attorney’s office, a law library, really almost anywhere you can get the parties together with a court reporter. Depositions are done as soon as possible, in case a relevant witness passes and/or while all the facts are fresh in their minds.

      As we all know, he was supposed to appear in October 2012 and that got pushed off – it was rumored he was considering a plea deal and then Hurricane Sandy hit and that further delayed things because the court calendars got all screwed up. According to an article at RealityTea in August, it stated Joe Giudice’s trial would probably be some time before June 2013. I don’t know how updated this information is though.

      They stole, money, from a company they set up, sent it to another company and also into all their names. They stole money, that is much different then spending beyond your means as in the Guidices. But also, Joe’s businesses suffered during the Real estate crash, so probably went bust with that and whatever they personally spent. They didn’t steal and divert money. And Wacko Jacko family has now sort of stolen the black water concept too. Anyone can make similar products, and market, but they went to a show, found this product, then started their own. Not original, not illegal, but to me, build something on your merits.

    Has anyone ever seen Melissa actually wearing that Rolex? She wears a gold watch sometimes but it’s not THE Rolex. Also, wonder if the Lamborghini and the other car – can’t remember if it was a Bentley or not – are still in their garages – highly doubtful. Bravo probably filmed some shots and then the cars were returned back to the dealer they got them from – the same dealer Melissa had done publicity shots for in the past (a gig Teresa passed over to Melissa when she didn’t want to do it.).

    Melissa constantly gets things gratis – as is so obvious by her nonstop hawking and giving a shout out to different vendors on Twitter just like her tweeting the name of the car dealer several times Joey Marco did as well. Their fans are really gullible – it amazes me! Antonia just got a new bedset – which is nice – but is it necessary for Melissa to include where she got it from (wakeupfrankie)? Of course it is! That is how she “paid” for it! Her clothes, her makeup, her trips are all free in exchange for publicity. That trip to Jamaica had to have been “comped” – she let it slip out how one of the pictures taken there was her favorite from the”photoshoot” with full on hair and makeup! Who has a planned photoshoot while on vacation supposedly to get away from all the stress, especialy at Thanksgiving? Then, Melissa tweeted who made her bathing suits as well as Antonia’s. Blatant.

    Both Richie Wakile and Joey Marco have the same dentist – how do people know? Because both have given several shout outs on Twitter to a Dr Allan Rauchberg – The very same dentist who did the Toys for Tots publicity stunt with the Wakiles and Gorgas. There’s another fame whore! It would be my guess Richie got those new teeth either for free or at a reduced cost – good thing because he sure didn’t get his money’s worth.

    It doen’t take much intelligence to figure it out – the way they live their lifestyle is all on the backs of other people – but for them it’s free! They get caught, time and again, in their pretenses.

    • Maynardfan
      January 2, 2013 at 11:21 AM

      I’ve always noticed in pix of Melissa that she hardly has any jewelry on and wears the same clothes repeatedly (aside from her tank tops and pleather pants for performances). We all know the fame whores with money wouldn’t be caught dead wearing the same things twice when cameras are around.

      • Laram
        January 2, 2013 at 3:07 PM

        I’ve wondered about the Rolex, as well. Did you see her thanking the designers of Antonia’s Communion dress–which I’m sure will be filmed.

        The funniest was her promoting her Wifey tea in a stupid pose, and no wedding ring! Things that make you go, hmmm!

      • dch60
        January 2, 2013 at 5:12 PM

        I haven’t seen her wearing the same clothing… as a matter of fact… supposedly it’s in their contracts that they have to have a certain number of outfits for shooting so they’re not supposed to wear things more than once.

    • Anonymous
      January 2, 2013 at 3:15 PM

      I agree. But, if it were me and companies wanted me to wear their products, I’d do it too. But I wouldn’t pretend that I’m so rich and fab if every trip, car, etc. is provided to me. But that is reality TV, it’s not really real is it? My brother watched a taping of NYHW at a hotel and he said the wives were talking then sort of arguing and the producer cut and started over several times, so how real is it right? I believe Tre and Melissa and Caro were real in being angry with each other, but I’ll bet the scene with Tre and Jacko on her porch was re shot several times, b/c it was light out and then very late when it was all over. So how real is reality tv?

      • Jeannie5233
        January 2, 2013 at 3:59 PM

        I read somewhere that what happened the night on Jacs patio lasted several hours with them talking and arguing back and forth and then Caroline showed up. I know that some of the scenes are done over as well as the Talking Heads – we all saw outtakes of those on the Reunion Lost Footage episode. I also know, that, first hand, being at the Gulfstream Restaurant in Newport Beach the night Vicki found out her daughter eloped, that particular scene of OC was not reshot. And I really don’t think the ambush of Teresa was reshot either – I think it unfolded the way we saw it – Teresa was clearly distressed and her face was genuinely shocked when she saw Caroline. She is not an actress by any stretch of the imagination, that’s for sure. Just my observation though, and with all that said- I agree with you that “reality tv” is not “real”!

        • dch60
          January 2, 2013 at 5:18 PM

          Exactly… I gave my opinion on this previously, but I just don’t believe that the ambush wasn’t genuine. If it was, Teresa should become an actress just like NeNe did. I can think of many times that I felt there was no way they could have seen what was coming. I’m sure Bravo makes certain to include those moments so it doesn’t look completely phony and scripted.

      • Jeannie3011
        January 4, 2013 at 9:05 AM

        It’s not period! These shows are all planned out totally from every single thing stated and edited so shitty. All ratings and ALL for money to make for Bravo. How do you think they keep this going. It sure isn’t going to be from fuzzy, sweet moments where the girls are going to be nice to each other. Who on earch would ever watch it. People live to watch drama, death, murder, affairs, people divorcing, drugs and all that’s shit in the world to keep your attention going and you’ll never see them get ratings when they’re acting proper and let me tell you, when these cameras are off, I’m sure these so-called ladies are even worse than what you’re actually seeing. Teresa is disgusting. The sheer stupidity flowing out that mouth is enought to make you want to cut across your own jugular!! Daniel wack job from hell, BRAVO loved because she caused drama galore, she’s insane, she’s wicked psycho and look at the past. I think she’s the EXACT same person she was 25 years ago. How many people do you honestly see emotionally change their ways into sudden mother Theresa qualities. You don’t. If you were a shit when you were younger, you’re still probably a true ass, what’s changed. If you were nice, you’re probably nicer.. Not too many people change unless somehow they’ve come up with a brain transplant. So insanely ridiculous. They all know each other well, stupid, dumb pre school arguments over the most mundane of things. If Dina, whose very strange herself, (cheesy smelling no cat hair grandma, off the wall weird voice and tries to threaten people with her tough talk which is so stupid, grow the fuck up, her UGLY home and she calls herself an interior designer. ) She’s pissed at Chris and Caroline and anyone in her family who has anything to do with the show because she feels like it’s a betrayal. Caroline states she’s on the board and founded Project Ladybug, which Dina hawks as if her her mere life depends on it.. and if you take any credit for it, you’re on her shit list. You can see very easily she’s this type of person. She, as well as Caroline are so suspicious of everyone, in reality I don’t and wouldn’t ever try to be their friends. I don’t like when you have to be analyzed to death and investigated. One thing that is so stupid about the Manzo’s they’ve repeated so many times, “If a person brings a body guard with them, that means they’re expecting something to happen. ” They should know that considering their past endeavors and so forth. Things they admitted have happened in their family. Why did these things happen in their family. I also remember one cast member stating “it’s very brave of Caroline to talk about anyone’s family problems because of things I won’t say, but it’s very brave of them to even go there.” That stupid, dump party for Xmas that Melissa threw and had the attorney thrown out – she was in the midst of stating the horrid mess Teresa was so disgusting to deal with and has been a three year nightmare with her…Teresa demands she be thrown out and for Jo&Mel to throw her out to be a so-called good sister n law & brother makes me gag. I would say Hey unless this woman came armed and has intentions of maming, hurting you in any way physically, why they heck would she give shit if she was miss innocent,which we know she and joe are not because they owe in the tune of over $8Mill to creditors because they live wayyyyyy beyond their means and Joe makes about $75,000 a years. It’s called living way beyond your means and getting your ass in so much deep water to make yourself look wealthy when in fact your’re not even close.. You’re just getting yourself closer and closer to seeing your hug go to jail.. I do believe he will serve time for the jack ass crap he pulled with the dmv. Then the Manzo’s once again at a party that they had no business even going there with Kim G, ( a pain in the ass) but at the same time, I don’t think she was even there to cause any crap. Caroline starts a high school bully fight with her and starts her whole family in on a dumb, stupid, ridiculous argument when it was ZERO, NOTHING WAS HAPPENING AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE WHOLE FAMILY as Chris is taking care of the no – situation, that Caroline actually caused because Kim wasn’t doing a damn thing but just talking to the other women. Wow, didn’t know that would cause a scene. This is where Car should have just shut the fuck up. Gag me.. she made me sick because when her son Chris was peacefully talking to Kim outside, you would think he was being helf up by Kim with an Ouzi.. what the frig? What a load of shit ..talk about a weird family. Chris had every right to be pissed over unnecessary drama and have all of the family come out there from Chris, Al, Albie, Car, the whole damn family. Possibly Austin as well. Dumb, immature drama and immaturity on the whole family’s part because are you kidding me, the whole family steps in because of a talk between Chris and Kim.. having her out as well over the objection of a guest. I would as, Melissa, have kicked Teresa and Joe and Caroline and her whole family out for even suggesting that I kick anyone out of my party; Something none of them had the right to do. They all make me puke. 4th season made my mind up about how disgusting I think the whole fake assed crew is, how stupid they are, how immature women that age are. I could punch Jacqueline in the face her stupid incessant crying, shit mother to Ashely..She’s 21 years old, skypes her from LA, which I’m sure Ashley is soooooo happy to be away from stripper past, asshole, shitty mother Jacqueline. As ashley pointed out she always puts herself in the midst of drama, lives for it, is pimping out her autistic kid now for money and for press and you name it all for her. She’s a disgusting pig. I would love to take a wack at her because she’s trash, I hate her botoxed up ugly fake face and fake boobs and fake lips and everything else that’s fake about her. most important being a sickening disgusting person coming across as being a victim all the time when in reality she’s full of shit and I wholeheartedly believe she stripped in Vegas. Chicago my fucking ass!! All lies.. As for fake assed Melissa, another joke. Now she’s plastic surgeoned out to death. I completely believe she swam in the lady pond and had many realtionships and still does with women. They, she and Joe have that air about them that they have a sickening open marriage with various men and women. I do believe definitely she stripped. She’s the type. Her sisters are white trash and they make me sick being on there. You can see they’re all low class trashy whores.. ugly, disgusting and shit. FAKE teeth, fake boobs, fake lips, fake cheekbones, everything about her fake as hell now.take a look.. now as far as singing. HORRID.SHE’S SO HORRIBLE. awful, take her off any air. Thank god I’ve never heard her on the radio .. she’s fake, her hub is fake ..these are all a bunch of broke mothers and I can’t stand any of them.. by the way bravo..your editing sucks so much, all scenes go back to weeks of filming before because the exacts same clothing worn, the kids play date v the day that caroline brother got married. Filmed when the kids were playing some weeks earlier making it look like it was that day.. the oh somethings going to go down from cheezy,sleezy, coke whore kim D who owns hooker are us shit store.. ugly, immature, disgusting.. I hate her.. she’s so gross and trashy and 50 years old and acting like some 5th grade scumbag.. I truly have grown from what I’ve read on these website and from what I’ve read and heard about them on twitter.. all of them are scuzzy… trashy people.. They’re all scumbags and there all liars. Those manzo boys had their apt paid for. They didn’t have $1million dollars a piece from working Daddy gave all that money to them. Daddy opened up and gave them money for blk and daddy gave money to them for laurens stupid face bar.. it won’t last.. so that’s that on the fakeness of the show and stupidity.. they’re all fakes, liars and bullshitters and you can tell they’re all fake.. it’s all Bravo ratings. It’s not real. It’s pure FAKE CRAP!!!! NEVER AGAIN CRAP SHOW.. ALL THOSE HOUSEWIVES SHOWS SUCK AND ARE SO FAKE..

          You are certainly entitled to your opinion that these shows are ALL fake – I would agree that some – perhaps even most – of it is, and I also definitely agree with you that we are being majorly manipulated and played bigtime by Bravo.

          However, as I said in my comment before, and this is not opinion, this is FACT – I was at the restaurant in Orange County when the filming crew came in and filmed Vicki Gunvalson of RHOOC with her daughter Briana and Ryan, Briana’s boyfriend. Vicki’s shocked reaction to Briana’s news that they had eloped, as captured on film, is geniune, completely backed up by what transpired AFTER the cameras STOPPED rolling for the evening, which was also very real and emotional. She was upset – no question, and definitely not an act. When Vicki is upset, she is very loud and can be heard from quite a distance.

          With no disrespect to your comments, I completely stand by my statement because it is FACT.

      I believe it was Fame who wrote a blog about something that happened with Richie and his son. I think there were some pics shot of Richie and his son at a clothing store. The clothing store in turn offered them some clothing, but it wasn’t good enough for Richie. He wanted something more and the store refused. Richie had his attorney send a letter demanding that the photos not be used. Talk about fame going to a person’s head!

      I agree, so disgusting. And how are Melissa’s kids going to feel when one day they find the picture of Melissa pretending to give Joe a BJ while his shirt is off. And how will they feel when the see their Dad in shots flaunting his privates for the camera all the time. And how will they feel hearing that his children are “cock blockers” and all of the other disgusting, unclassy things those Gorga’s do. I’d be ashamed of my parents. Tre and Juicy at times show a bit of a nasty side, but not like the Gorgas. And Rich with all his nastiness too, how embarrassing.

Now it makes sense – Chris is showing Lil Joe how to scam for REAL. Guaranteed Chris is involved in Joe’s new business ventures.

    Thanks for wrapping the Laurita dirty-dealings in with the shyster Gorgons, Fame – (love love love the fredo corleone moniker holyc! lol every time! perfect!) And for the Sackem tip – enjoyed reading that site the other night – along with the one that tracks the Laurita court case sporadically<<<think it's called "faux reality entertainment"? There's another one with frequent NJ updates that I hadn't seen before the Christmas Holiday called All Things Real Houswives? I try to post on all of these sites, just in case BRAVO/NBC is tracking or gauging fan reaction. Think I like to believe it has an impact, lol . . . I think the reduced status of Kim D has sparked my optimism.

    I thought Gorga the second I read the blind item but saw that some theorized Alexis Bellino. Not sure what her scam artist hub is doing lately . . . and definitely don't believe "Jesus Barbie" would have cheated on him (kids paternity in doubt) during his financial heyday, altho' ya never know.

    Anyone familiar with this HW's hubs occupation?

      I thought about Alexis too but the part that says “His profession is not what it has been presented as. He is actually a general laborer of sorts.” matches JoGo more so. Jimbo has never even suggested what he does for a living – he hasn’t presented anything. And I’m quite sure he’s NOT a general laborer.

    Fredo doesn’t have any money to invest in anything. He had to refi his house and pull $500k out just to pay his property tax that was sold to 3rd party and the electric that was turned off at this home around the same time.
    Don’t even get me started on how he was able to prove that:
    1. they home was worth more that it was 2 years ago in a down real estate market
    2. how they were able to refi when the house was on the market. BIG no no in mortgage lending
    3. how they were able to prove to the bank less than 2 years ago the they could not afford the home and need a loan modification and now two years later they can refi for more money.

    Smells like major mortgage fraud to me. This type of financing is exactly what lead to the crash of the real estate market and the downturn of the economy.

  16. January 2, 2013 at 12:49 PM

    PS: Someone made a good point (can’t remember where,lol) that in the wake of Sandy, business should be booming for construction contractors . . . but Fredo’s tweets indicates he is at vodka bottle signings in obscure locations instead of working. (????)

    • Jeannie5233
      January 2, 2013 at 12:56 PM

      Yup. Exactly – if you have no financial worries and you are a legitimate construction contractor, why are you out riding your wife’s coattails – these appearances Melissa makes Joey/Fredo is at just about every single one – I wonder if he gets a cut as well. Regardless, while this may be quick, easy money – it’s peanuts compared to what he could be making in construcition right now in NJ with all the work that needs to be done. Problem is – as someone else said – he probably can’t get any construction loans and has no cash flow.Oh right – I forgot – they pay their bills.

      • old NJ girl
        January 2, 2013 at 1:06 PM

        In order to complete any insurance repairs to the homes damaged by Sandy the contractors need to licensed, bonded and insured. Same with any FEMA work. Even personal property homeowners are encouraged to ask for this information before any work is done on your property including removing trees.
        Something tells me that he no longer has his license to build. In other states if you have multiple law suits and a history of money problems you can not get or renew your builders license.

          That is exactly what I thought old NJ girl. After Katrina we had to get EXTRA insurance for my husband’s painting business. Working a disaster can be lucrative, but licensing, insurance and bonds are very expensive.

          January 2, 2013 at 5:42 PM

          I read that his license was current but about to expire. The bonded and insured part my guesses would be no he is not.

          As far as him going with Melissa to the bottle signings… do you really think he would let Melissa go without him? I’m sure he’s worried she’ll meet someone with more money… lol

      Well if he is in the business of installing lavish pools with fake stucco architectural details, I would bet my bottom dollar that the last thing on the mind of New Jerseyans is digging big holes in their back yard to fill with WATER. I would venture to guess they are using their meager FEMA proceeds to try to get the moldy drywall out of their houses. Plus it is the dead of freaking winter so the ground is frozen. Dipshit. I think this is a shell corporation.
      Yes, Joey no balls, there is nothing more enticing in New Jersey than blowing your wad on a disneyesque body of water in your backyard and drinking a bottle of black water after everything you own has been destroyed by black water. Something does not make sense here.

        was 24 in jersey this morning,little too cold to think about a pool. just curious, poison joe is a contractor,why didn’t he bring his crew to toms river, check on his summer home here,then at least fix up one of the storm victims home for free,instead of chopping up one tree and answering phones on mtv.

          You’re right. JoGo’s profession is only part time. It can only be done from at best April to possibly October. Come to think about it, that’s perfect for him because it frees up his time for RHoNJ filming. I’d like to know how he finds the time during his working months to travel so much with Messy. He must not get many pool boy jobs.

They do not have several children as the article states, but it seems to be them, but maybe it’s not all true. People can feed a blogger or reporter a lie and if it’s told enough and repeated, it sort of becomes truth, but maybe it’s all bogus.

    This is what The Ubiquitous Source at Reality Tea had to say about the Gorga/Giudice NYE. I just think that parents can never have favourites (at least I HOPE they don’t have favourites because I’m not an only child!) so Missy and Joey can’t be as innocent as they would have us believe!

    “Teresa is celebrating the New Year like she always does, with a big family party mainly made up of her husband’s family and her parents. Every year the Giudice family rents out a restaurant and their family and close friends attend,” our source shares. Indeed, Teresa posted many cute family photos on Twitter of her New Year’s.

    Sadly all was not well as they welcomed the new year. “Once again, her parents are with her ringing in the new year just like they were with her Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. There is no place they would rather be.”

    The reason: “They cannot even stand to be near Melissa. Of course they love their son and their grandkids but, there is no love for Melissa.”

    Our source reveals that Teresa’s parents continue to see Melissa as the sole reason their family is fractured and to them that is unforgivable. I guess they didn’t inherit the famewhore gene… “They blame her for destroying the family,” our source explains. “It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks or who is right or wrong in their eyes, Melissa is to blame. It breaks their heart.”

    Sad sad sad! We all know, at the end of the day, Melissa and Joe had a choice to come on a reality TV show and hurt their family or quietly go about their lives happy for a family member’s “success”. I’ll never “like” watching them.

    • Jeannie5233
      January 2, 2013 at 6:57 PM

      Thanks Sackem for bringing this here – I went to read ithe actual article and saw the picture of Joe Giudice with Gabriela. I looked at it for a time because it is one of those that touches the heart – to me, that picture says it all – what life should be about – the love of children and the sharing with family and friends. The love and happiness in Joe G.’s face – priceless. Certainly not what Joe and Melissa are about. I don’t think I have ever seen either one of them, either on the show or in still pictures, with that look on their face when interacting with their children.

      And this is why I have such a problem with Joey/Fredo – probably, in some way, more so than with Melissa. This is HIS family – HIS parents – the people who brought him into the world; wiped his nose when he was sick; hugged him when he had a nightmare; saw him through all the ups and downs of growing up – well, you get the drift. He turned his back on the people who loved him most – all for a piece of ass. And knowing full well what he has done, he continues it happily, allowing his wife to lead him around by the ring in his nose with no thought or regret.

    For those wondering what Jacs has been up to here is an excerpt of her interview with TBB aka The Bravo Bitch, titled Nothing to Hide, published January 1st.

    TBB: Thank you so much for talking with me today. I have to let the fans know that you certainly are as “Real” as Real Housewives come. Is there anything else you would like to tell my readers?

    JL: I’m building a Beauty & Wellness MedSpa in Oakland, NJ with Dr.William Song and Michele Caputo from Omni Aesthetics (right next to the BLK Beverage offices)… so… stay tuned for more details…. I hope to see you all there. I also have a few other projects in the works that I am looking forward to sharing with everyone later! Also… BLK is doing incredible, growing like wildfire! They just opened up a beautiful brand new office. So proud that all of their hard work is finally paying off. They work hard every day. Lastly, best wishes and happiness to all in 2013!

    If Jacs face is any indication of Dr. Song’s expertise and it is because she has been going to him for years as per her mad tweeting, there is no way I would ever visit that MedSpa for ANY kind of treatment. Notice the plug as well for BLK too.

    The interview also reveals that Jacs intentions about Nicholas and still maintains she overheard Teresa tell Melissa that she hates her in the RV. At least she is sticking to her stories of lies.

      If she overheard Teresa say that, then why did she answer that everything seemed to be fine with them when she was next asked by, I think it was Melissa, but whoever it was doesn’t matter… would anyone say “everything’s fine” after overhearing someone say they hate them? So many things the GLM&Ws say just do NOT add up. Like Judge Judy says… if it doesn’t make sense, it’s not true.

      • January 3, 2013 at 3:18 PM

        I’m sorry I don’t buy that for one minute. If she heard it she didn’t say a word at the time? I mean come on not even a hello I’m right here?? or knock on the door, and ask for a cup of sugar, something to make your presence known. Doesn’t make sense and of course it wasn’t caught on tape — not buying it.

          That whole “story” made no sense then and makes no sense now. What would Teresa have to gain by telling Melissa such a thing?? If you have just made up with someone who you consider one of your best friends, and then overheard, right afterwards, them telling someone else they hated you – what would your response be??

          Jacs can be volatile and her emotions were so raw about the whole thing that night, if she really heard that, I have no doubt in my mind she would have stormed her way in and confronted Teresa right then and there. She gives the excuse her mind was elsewhere, primarily with Nicholas. Again, the son with autism card. Such BS!

          But that’s her story and she’s sticking to it. And, no doubt, Melissa backs her up on it as well.

          • January 3, 2013 at 5:31 PM

            I don’t believe a word Jac says re: Teresa. I remember S3 when she had tell her mom, Bonnie Grippe, to hush up on Twitter. Bonnie stated that “they” told Jac to be mean to Teresa. It’s hard to tell what is real and what is not. I either want a real show or a scripted show — one or the other not a mish mosh of both.

    I know this has nothing to do with this article, but I found this advice to Melissa gorga and the other housewives who create music. It’s too true.

      Thanks! Nice to get validation from someone who has “insights in the music industry.”

      Interesting you bring this up today, xxCiaoBelloxx!! We are sort of on the same page! I just happened upon some videos by a certain lovely Miss Tracy Sorensen; aka Tracy Caprioni, Tracy Lyn Caprioni-Sorensen, Tcap, or TracyCeeModel (Not to be confused with TreyC Cohen who is also a singer). According to her bio, she is an aspiring singer/songwriter, rapper, actress and model who is in her early 20’s. This young lady sings beautifully, completely without the benefit of AutoTune – unlike her cousin Melissa Marco/Gorga.

      (The first video is not her – it is Tracy DiMarco from the Jerseylicious cast.)

      The sound quality of some of the videos is terrible but her voice comes through. And while the crowd noise makes it difficult to hear, her cover of “I Will Always Love You” which a difficult song to sing, is terrific, especially the very last note. I would love to hear Melissa’s rendition – without anything but a mike.

        Just curious as to why young girls lump together “singer/songwriter/rapper/actress/model.” In other words, she’ll just throw it all against the wall to see what sticks in her desperate quest for fame and attention. Sure she can sing nicely, but acting and modeling? Give me a break.

          I get that Honnie – she’s a kid from East Stroudsburg, PA who just graduated high school in 2009 who probably doesn’t have much help in trying to get herself started. I agree – she probably would do best sticking to singing/songwriting but she is young and, through life experience, she will learn – pay her dues so to speak – and maybe, just maybe, get that break. Doubtful though – there is so much untapped, immense talent in this world. The entertainment industry is a tough nut to crack. Alot of it is who you know, being in the right place at the right time, or just plain old luck.

          In my opinion, all she uses is a mike and has a much better range and voice than her cousin, Melissa.

    She is really great, she has what it takes! I get why Melissa is jealous and threatened. I think Melissa songs and the rest of the housewives suck. I think it takes a great vocalist, catchy lyrics and great hooks to have a great song. Look at Call Me Maybe, that was probably the best pop song ever written in the last 10 years. ..The whole auto tune thing was popularized by T-Pain but that was his thing- he made it sound cool. He used it as an effect while he could really sing without it.

    I love teresa and im tired of bravo giving the bad edits.I know andy coHen has to be behind it because of the gay slurs made by joe giudice.Anyways i love the giudices and i know karma will get andy if he is the one behind it. Also what i think melissa should do is make up with joes parents. She should try harder. Caroline needs to look out for her family or else she will be facing the same problems as the giudices/gorgas I know the rest of the housewives are scared of skeletons coming but, put on a face. Hopefully things work out i know teresa will be made to look like the bad guy but thank goodness for this website:D

    MomaJackie May Have Cracked

    Sorry, I did not read the new comments, yet! But, I will.

    I think I just lost my mind. No doubt I watch reality tv (Real Housewives of NJ) because it makes me feel better. Knowing all these women have all this money (or not) and their lives are so messed up. Well, it entertains me, to say the least.

    I just cracked and maybe lost my mind at about 9 p.m. It seems, in my mind, I actually saw an advertisement about a new show on LifeTime. Double Divas! About women who make big bras.
    Tell me I have cracked, please!

    Back in my day, people who appeared on T.V. and in movies could not only act, but they could sing and dance.

    Were is this going?

    • January 4, 2013 at 2:19 AM

      Double Divas!!!!!!! Bwahahahah! That sounds terrible!!!!!! Ugh, our brains are being fried. My husband thinks he started getting dumber when we started living to together because of all the crap I “made” him watch…. so I got him a subscription to the New Yorker…..

      Looks like Melissa did as well – she tweeted: “Love this! Check out#DoubleDivas”. World’s going to hell in a handbasket!

      Hi Kelly! Your comment is appreciated – it reminded me of MomaJackie’s suggestion for people to comment as much as possible on FW, even if it is a short one or just a couple of words. Bravo does read these blogs and it wlll send a message to them just how many of us are out here who question what is going on. 🙂
