Teresa Giudice Takes Phone Call from Melissa Gorga’s Past — Caller Claims Melissa Cheated on Joe

January 7, 2013

tre 601

Based on topics brought up at the season 4 reunion, it looks like Bravo is going to reveal Melissa’s secrets (at least some of them) in season 5. However, based on information from insiders, it looks like Bravo Andy is going to use Teresa to reveal those secrets … just the way they used Teresa in season 4 to reveal Melissa’s secret that she worked as a ‘dancer’ at Lookers.

According to a former post production supervisor for RHONJ, the Posche Fashion Show (PFS) season 4 finale was packed with people from Melissa’s past all saying she ‘danced’, but all of that was left on the cutting room floor; and Melissa still to this day denies she ever ‘danced’ and continues to blame Teresa for setting her up (when Teresa had nothing to do with it and was simply Bravo’s pawn) — and the majority of viewers seem to believe this because of the way the producers edited the final episode (plus Melissa’s coverage in print media such as Us Weekly is positive — no stories about shoplifting, stripping, cheating, etc. or stories about her alleged bisexuality).

In season 5, producers instructed Kim D and Penny Drosso to bring up Melissa’s alleged cheating to Teresa, but this time Teresa knowingly and willingly went along with it — the producers are setting it up so that Teresa takes the fall, again.

According to an inside source, a scene was filmed at the season 5 holiday Posche Fashion Show on December 3, 2012, where Kim D and Penny approached Teresa with information about Melissa’s infidelity, and Teresa agreed to a phone call with someone named “Mike” who confirmed that Melissa cheated on Joe multiple times after they were married. However, the producers will edit it so that Melissa again can successfully deny the allegations by deflecting negative attention onto Teresa for trying to ruin her marriage and attack her character (“Why is my sister-in-law involved in spreading rumors about me?”).

Jacqueline, Caroline, Melissa and Kathy weren’t at the PFS by design, so how Bravo introduces this scene to them is a mystery for now, but Teresa certainly will be attacked by the cast for being part of it.

The producers can edit the footage to make it seem like Melissa is innocent of cheating on Joe and that Teresa is simply out for revenge and trying to destroy her brother’s happy marriage because her marriage is so unhappy (with other footage implying that the real cheater is Joe Giudice).

Why would the producers do this? Is it because Andy hates the Giudices? It seems like he does because they are the ones who have been portrayed in the most negative light consistently for two seasons, while Melissa has been able to deny everything and pretend she and Joe are the perfect couple.

With Melissa’s advice book on marriage backing up that storyline, it is unlikely that Bravo will let Melissa’s fake image be completely tarnished in season 5… maybe they decided to wait until season 6 when Teresa is no longer on the show to expose Melissa (perhaps she’ll have her own spinoff or be imprisoned for money fraud), because without Teresa, Melissa doesn’t have much of a storyline — and then maybe in season 6 they will do to Melissa what they spent three seasons doing to Teresa.

That’s how things are looking now, but the producers could change everything using editing and production tricks like scenes out of sequence, voice overs, crafted dialogue, and coached testimonials (THs).

Had Teresa left the show after season 4, Bravo would have had no choice but to go after Melissa (and, of course, wouldn’t have been able to use Teresa to do it), because other than playing the victimized sister-in-law, Melissa’s only other storyline is that of the obedient wife in a happy marriage (who wants to be a pop star on the side) — and this storyline is weak at best.

    I was just looking in on Ts twitter and 1 hour ago she posted TVfishbowl interview what did teresa and joe do for Sandy, went to fishbowl site holy moly it has crashed, is that because of Ts fans going to it lets hope.

      I got to it earlier, it was a very nice story. It indicated that they did not lose power and helped the neighbors that needed food and a place to stay since they still had power. It also indicated that they gave a family (or 2) a rental property and helped move them. Hmmm, all of this without the need for publicity.

        I’m so glad you said that, Hi by the way, I have only posted here a couple of times. I saw that tweet and didn’t know why the site has crashed but I think you are right, It’s Teresa isn’t it? She’s always the big draw with any of these stories because love her or hate her, people are fascinated and always want to know more about her. I’m really glad it was a nice story and that she was helping people quietly without cameras around, I hoped that she would,
        love this blog by the way, keeps me from doing many things I should be getting on with!

                    Here in Aust we are just viewing the last few episodes of season 4, maybe that is why all of a sudden a influx of overseaers are searching for sites like this one as we are horrified how someone is treated as T is.
                    Hopfully we will be able to watch same time now as we are with RHBH, I think they did it as alot of people around the globe was watching on youtube before it aired on pay tv.

                • January 7, 2013 at 6:38 PM

                  Well, Chim chimery old chap! Hahaha!

                  And you are right Mzjules… I think that what is not realised by the cast especially is that this is an international programme and franchise. We have Brandi doing a back page commentary in one of our most popular weekly trash magazines. We can buy Skinny Girl Margaritas at our local bottle shops (or Off License for you Popsy – am I right?), I can order Teresa’s books on Amazon but I can’t seem to find BLK anywhere and I’ve never once heard Missy’s songs on the radio… what’s that tell you? Jeez even Taylor made a trip Down Under for our Melbourne Cup (a massive international horse race) and did high profile press!!!

                  Missy has made an INTERNATIONAL fool of herself, not content to humiliate her family on a small scale.

                  PS Popsy, we also get Gordie Shore and The Only Way is Essex – I hope you guys didn’t end up with our version of dramality – The Shire. If so, please accept, on behalf of my fellow countrymen, my most sincerest apologies!

                    I say old bean! No I haven’t seen the Shire, googled it and it came up with middle earth first and I guess you weren’t referring to Hobbits? It looks almost as good as The only way is Essex 😉
                    But yes this is an international show and I have never heard a single song, or even reference to a song by Melissa, (and i sometimes work at a local radio station so I must remember to ask) so she’s by no means any kind of star. At all! And I don’t want to be mean but I doubt she will be. You have to be an artist to your toes and ready to work all day and night and most of all have some talent. I dont see it happening.

So glad that you enjoyed the trip to the Wirral, not a part of the country that I have been to yet but I know its interesting there. I’m in the south of England with all the mud and cows

                      They contacted us last year, my husbands dad was 1st married in 1940 and was in British Navy went away to serve in 1943 returned and sadly his wife and 2 children left London with another man. He searched to no avail, cut along story short remarried came to aust never to see them again he passed never knowing.

                      They were told he was killed, but his older son had gut feeling something didnt seem write and after the mum passed out of some respect he began searching.

                      It has turned out so BEAUTIFUL sadly though the brother and sister had terrible life with step-father.

                      We also found and spent time with cousins in High Wycombe once again beautiful.

              BBT? Is that the one I posted a link to on the last feed? I all honesty I only like All About The Real Housewives (FW is the only one I post to though because it’s my fav) which had an excerpt from that interview so I clicked on the link. I know there are alot of people who read here and there so I didn’t think I should just link the two. I don’t read The Bravo Bitch but there were some interesting comments here about that site and the blogger yesterday.
              I also wander over to Stoopid Housewives and Reality Tea, Radar Online because they do tend to have some valid and new info that maybe delivered as opinion based but has some believability about it. Fishbowl is new to me.

        January 7, 2013 at 7:19 PM

        The fact she just talked about it in an interview indicates she used it
        For positive spin. During te hurricane when the Manzo/Lauritas were joining forces to send out truckloads of donations, Tre had to make the dig that she was doing stuff but “just doesn’t need to post photos of it”. It’s all passive aggressive. As far as the show goes, ANYONE who signs on there knows they can get the “villain” edit. They don’t care…they want the fame and fortune. T would rather have the fame and money than be portrayed as having character. They all are willing to risk it.

        • January 7, 2013 at 8:12 PM

          So you’re saying she should just stay quiet when interviewed and let the evil edit not only roll over her, but back up and hit her again, Miss messy? What we’ve discussed here on FameWhorga’s is not that the ManLaurKile’s helped out during Sandy, but they did so in an unseemly slef promotional manner (see: BlK Vans/CalFace location/and endless pics and tweets. I submit that another word for “unseemly” in this instance would be FAME WHORES.

          Teresas’ responses to questions about the effects of this Hurricane is not even in the same ballpark so don’t even try it.

          • January 8, 2013 at 6:28 PM

            I would say it shows character not to have to publicize the fact that you’re helping in a cause. Teresa’s tweet was only in response to one saying she wasn’t doing anything to help victims which was not the case. She doesn’t tweet all day/every day like SOME of these crazy housewives and/or their minions. The others receive a fail and Teresa receives a star.

          Not butting in … I’ve done my share of bartending in the past and the only time I got 100 bucks was at a 5 star resort. When I was bartending at the strip clubs (as they do strip in AZ at least the top) — got maybe 20 on a good night. The girls did quite well in the parking lot, just saying.

          • January 8, 2013 at 6:43 PM

            They have strip clubs in NJ where they girls strip down to nothing, however, they can’t serve alcohol. If someone wants to drink, the strip club girls have to wear somewhat of a bikini. Some do cheat a bit and offer some peaks… mostly in the seedier clubs. In the “classy” clubs they follow the rules. Mind you, these bikinis can be very skimpy… as long as they cover… you know… the certain “spots.”

    I agree Theresa should’ve left after season 4, but does this mean she’ll get some overdue vindication? That would hold my attention for sure, however any more of the same( giudice bashing, families destroyed) and I’m out.

    • January 7, 2013 at 5:16 PM

      I don’t agree that she should had left. Why? She needs the money, she was there 1st and most of know she was the one set-up. Now, if she stays knowing now what she did not in S3 and S4, the backstabbing in TH’s of every single other cast member, without avoiding it or fighting back in a positive manner. Shame on her.

      As a rationale thinking person, I can’t imagine Bravo continuing to try and dump their cash cow. None of the others have the “it” factor or the drive to be successful.

      • happylady
        January 7, 2013 at 5:58 PM

        I agree with Fame she probably shouldve left because Theresa deserves better then this and Bravo would’ve been forced to turn the evil spotlight on the ones who actually deserve it. I would watch Theresa on quite frankly anything she chose to do. I enjoyed celebrity apprentice. I too don’t like the fact that if she leaves its because of the others, however weighing the pros and cons it doesn’t even come close . The wedge that’s been driven in between this family is not worth any price. Even rats know when to abandon a sinking ship.

              I do too happy. I’m probably more optimistic today as I’m on cold meds. Still on the fence on watching yesterday it was a definite hell no, today back on the fence. I hope bravo knows the only reason some of us are on the fence to even think about watching is … Teresa. But won’t tolerate the stupidity of the last 2 seasons and Tre bashing.

          She signed a 5 year contract she couldn’t leave without paying which she can’t afford to do who could..

          • January 9, 2013 at 5:32 PM

            That’s interesting that Bravo had her sign a five year contract. That seems like they were prepared to antagonize her and to the point where she might want to leave, or want to leave to protect her family from further harm. Bravo has her trapped which is exactly where they want her. Also she can’t ask for more money based on the abuse she’s being forced to take… and a five year contract IS forcing her to take whatever they do to her. Every piece of info I hear only shows Bravo/Miss Andy to be more disgusting.

    • January 7, 2013 at 7:20 PM

      I think that Teresa should know the lay of the land over at Bravo this season. I honestly believe that she was blindsided and was a true victim the last two season but this season, she will only have herself to blame if she falls into the same trap and therefore perhaps she should have walked away when her profile was high and left the rest of the cast sans scapegoat. On the other hand, I don’t see why she should be forced from a show that is a form of employment – that would give Missy too much satisfaction. Why should she give up gainful employment and popularity for Missy’s quest for fame and her brother’s immaturity.

      One of the things that stood out for me last season was the issue Missy and Joey had regarding the Giudice achievements and they way the gave advice. Wasn’t there conversations about how Juicy liked to think that he got Joey into construction? Remember the man conversation at poker night? To me Missy AND Joe ARE reaping the benefits of the Giudices’ opportunity. They are walking the exact line Teresa took and are trying to gazump her at the same time. They do want what she has and fail to realise that in this situation, that any reward they receive through notoriety is down to Teresa. Why does Teresa have to walk away from something she has worked for just to appease her little brother and his greedy wife. For all the lip service Missy gave to Teresa not including them and that there was no jealousy – that she in fact encouraged Teresa to take part in the show, there’s a very telling bit of footage at Audrianna’s baptism – you could see on Melissa’s face as it cut to her at the party that she’s thinking “it should be me!”

          January 7, 2013 at 8:01 PM

          ITA, the only way Teresa can come out of this is to truly win and not at the expense of Melissa by bringing her down but by being better than anyone at staying away from gossip and meanness and making a success of whatever she turns her hand to. They SO want to bring her down and if she’s not careful she will stay in this no win situation.
          It seems to me that the very things Teresa is attacked for by the other Hw’s and hate her for now are the very things that they loved her for in the beginning. And why? Because she has become successful in her own right. Its very easy to love someone who is adorably ditsy and dresses up her daughters in loads of expensive clothes and calls a Nor eastern a Norwegian and always fancies her husband has great parties and has a sort of innocence about her, as long as she stays being that person and can be “looked down upon”.
          But oh dear, when she shows that she actually has a brain, that she is the most popular, that she is more than capable of handling herself, all the other women who “think” that they are brainier or have better marriages or are more grownup see this then they can’t stand it. I really believe that they think that because THEY are more intelligent or have better vocabulary (not saying they do but they think they do) or are prettier or younger or have more experience in life, then all of that success should be theirs and not Teresa’s. That’s why we see that resentful face of Melissa’s in the earlier seasons when they WERE included even if they say they weren’t . So what can they do? They have to gang up on her and try to hurt her and bring her down and “put her in her place”
          Sorry for the rant

            this is exactly how i have felt forever. the first time i watched RHONJ (which is the only HWs show i watch) was just a few weeks before season 3. i watched the first two seasons in probably less than a week (i have a problem with, like, binging on watching television) & i was instantly drawn to teresa. she was so funny & carefree & just, well, happy. i know there were problems with danielle, but i honestly think teresa had problems with danielle just because she was hurting her best friends. & when jacqueline was friends with danielle, teresa tried her hardest to get a long with her, while caroline & dina hated her from the start. teresa actually tries to be a good friend. & then, in one of jacqueline’s blogs, she stated that teresa thinks everyone needs to be on her side, it’s her way or the highway or something a long those lines, & i was just in disbelief. teresa never wanted anyone to HATE melissa or attack her, but that is the way jac made it out to be. she just wanted to be supported, like she had supported jac with danielle. which, in my opinion, is what a loyal friend is. but jac said teresa wouldn’t know loyalty if it bit her on the ass. i’m sorry, but i think teresa is the most loyal of everyone. after everything caroline had said to her, teresa was willing to put it in the past & make up, & caroline didn’t. teresa wanted to start over with jac & she just couldn’t because she was so hurt that teresa didn’t tell her about something in a magazine. i just can’t understand jac & caroline’s logic. teresa was so good to her friends & then they tossed her away like she was nothing. i wish they would bring dina back on the show, i really liked her too.

            so, what did everyone else think of dina? i honestly don’t know what everyone’s feelings of her are on this website, so i’m curious to know. i always thought she was fabulous & really did try to rise above it all. i think seeing just teresa & dina on their own show would be good.

              Toxic prince……I think the others are very jealous of Teresa success, it kills Caroline that teresas book got picked up and caro wacko cook book did not, she was so busy telling Teresa she was doing her book all wrong, I do think Dina is a classy lady, she is not into the game of anything you can do I can do better, Caroline’s new advice book will also fail,who will take advice from someone when half her own family won’t even talk to her, what advice?? How to screw a friend in 2 easy steps??????

            • January 8, 2013 at 5:14 AM

              Hit the nail on the head there Prince!! I didn’t mind Dina, a bit mean girl but then again I don’t know if we got the full story. I’m much like you, I watched the first ep of the first season and thought it was a poor reproduction of NY… then I was reeled back in by the table flip/book incident, watched the madness of season two – let’s face it, Danielle was a bit nuts and then thought season three and the introduction of Melissa showed the filthy underbelly of humanity. I was so astounded that I felt like I needed to voice my disgust and well, here I am!

                January 8, 2013 at 8:21 AM

                I agree Prince, she was loyal to her friends, I think, If memory serves that when she was fed up of Danielle and said she was done, that was pretty much it for a long time, then she stayed away, I may have to go back and watch again. I didn’t really take to Dina to be honest, but I thought her walking away from the show showed class and wasn’t there a twitter spat that she handled really well with Ashley?

                • toxicprince
                  January 8, 2013 at 6:30 PM

                  yes there was a twitter thing with dina & ashlee but it didn’t really make sense. dina said something about not being able to take it, but she still loves ashlee. i am still interested in what happened with dina & caroline & jacqueline, but respect that she doesn’t want it public. why should she?

                  i think with the whole dina being mean thing, was just because of danielle. dina is very spiritual & seems to be able to sense drama or bad people (not to say i think danielle is “bad” but she did bring the drama). i don’t know, i really liked dina. when teresa told her that she was audrianna’s god-mother i cried. it was so beautiful & really seemed like a real, genuine moment.

              I also agree with you that Teresa has been a loyal friend. I can’t help thinking that the real reason Carloine and Jac turned on Teresa was the incident on vacation where arrests occurred (not really sure if they actually occurred or what is going on with that situation) because of the fight that started when Teresa popped a champagne bottle…but of course Caroline and Jac and Bravo wouldn’t want that to come to light…so they made up ridiculous reasons like the magazines…which of course is exactly what MeHo is doing now (but that is ok, right?) Whatever the reason, however, to all turn and join the Famewhorga family in bullying Teresa was disgusting and remains disgusting. If Bravo doesn’t change that storyline they will have a huge problem with the fan base, as far as I’m concerned anyway. Something has to come to light that they were all wrong in how they treated Teresa. I don’t care about their past. I don’t care what they do in their private lives. But I do care that they got away scott free on ganging up on Teresa and her family.

              • January 9, 2013 at 5:36 PM

                Caroline had begun to act differently towards Teresa even before Punta Cana however. If it did worsen the situation between them, Caroline is still wrong. Her sons are adults. What they do is on them. It’s pitiful that Caroline always has to find a scapegoat for any of their bad behavior.

        Maybe the big secret is one others have commented on about Teresa and Joe, and that is production think that something is off about them and that Teresa is borderline unstable. I love Teresa, I really do but for her not to be going to Bravo higher ups and telling them that Andy is playing favorites and such says alot about her thinking. She has to know by now that Andy hates her, she has too. I’m sure with all the information about Kat and other things she could get a lawyer or get Bravo to allow her out of her contract and/or get Andy out of editing and her a spin off.

            He is the higher up. Even if he wasn’t… what’s Teresa supposed to do… run to “higher up” and cry that they’re picking on her? I’ve seen a portion of their contract. It’s made very clear that they are signing up for things that may make them uncomfortable… and that’s the least of it. I’ll try to find the document I’m talking about and provide the link. I’ll try anyway… I’ve looked at so many different sites, have followed links upon links, so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to find it. Honestly in thinking about it, I don’t even know where to start. But I will try because it will be worth it if I find it.

I was bed ridden for the first 3 months of my pregnancy so I watched the first 3 seasons back to back before season 4 commenced. Anything that required deeper thinking was a bit hard….

    Good Morning to all

    I am hoping you might be able to answer some questions for me to help me get storyline

    Did Penny own the shop that horrible lauran has now, as she made a remark when her and monster/mother was looking at it to buy, something like they deserved to be shut down (something along those lines)

    Is that the same salon that was seen in ep 1/2 with Dina??? as I remember Dina saying they were her friends in the salon

    Was it Danielle’s salon too?

    Thankyou

    P.S Sackem and any other Aussies if you are in NSW please stay safe with heat that is predictated today as for any in VIC

    • January 7, 2013 at 6:28 PM

      No Penny did not — they are 2 different shops. The one Lauren owns now (can’t remember the former name) is where she set up a make-up chair or something, had a big party for her grand opening and closed up a day later as they didn’t respect her. Hence when she and her mom were looking for properties and found it for lease she made a snide comment along the lines of Karma (can’t remember the words).

      I’ll need others to interject but yes I do believe Chateau something something was the salon from S1/2 and no Danielle did not own it but was a customer. I think that is where Bravo “found them” or I could be dreaming as it’s been a while since I have watched those seasons.

                I also seen a photo of the gorgas and lauratias at a park riding in the back of a wagon with all the kids lets see if that is part of season 5 but used as if it happening now????

                • January 7, 2013 at 8:29 PM

                  Yes, I bought that up on another page because I remembered the same. Someone suggested that the reason he was denying friendship was to eliminate a connection between Teresa and Penny in the PFS setup theory (are you there yet?) which kind of makes sense because he was welcomed onto twitter by Johnny the Greek (don’t worry, we’ve all stalked and I think I’m the poster child of the original meaning of the word fan – it’s an abbreviation of the word fanatic but there’s just something about the injustice on this show which made me stamp my feet – I’ve never engaged like this before ever!!!)

                  It’s all a bit inconsistent. I’m looking forward to the Greeks because I hope they’ll vindicate Teresa by exposing Melissa and I feel they’ve been quite open about their motivation on coming on to the show but I have to ask myself what is behind that motivation to.

    I’ll keep it short and sweet.

    Melissa wasn’t a dancer-but she did work at Lookers. She also never taught second grade, except for her practicum and student teaching. She never took the Praxis to get her license because she hated it. She lied about that at the PFS.

    Melissa does have a past, but like strippergate it’s nothing no one cares about because its not that interesting. Or any different then anyone else’s.

    Melissa doesn’t cheat because Joe doesn’t let her out of his sight long enough for her to do so. Doesn’t mean she didn’t cheat when they dated, but again, no one cares since they are married with kids now. Lots of people cheat on boyfriends especially in the beginning.

    No one knows what is happening season 5 because they haven’t finished filming it. Those involved with the production are not allowed to discuss it with anyone. For the simple reason they don’t want the plot line out there. There are a limited number of people who are in the know, it’s not hard to figure out who talks. Those people end up on the cutting room floor. Or fired from the crew. No one wants that.

    Plot lines are not determined this far in advance. Just talking points that come up during filming. There’s no conspiracy.

    However, it’s NOT a secret that S5 is a transition year. But no one knows what that transition will be until filming is done and the ratings are in. Why do you think no one got fired? Even though therw were a ton if runors and absolute confirmation of firings on blogs that were all BS? Big ratings.

    Lastly, I’ll throw you a bone. The Gotgas have always disliked Melissa. But not for the reasons you think. Why do you think she happily threw 2 elderly people under the bus? She thinks she’s hurting them, but as always with Melissa, she’s just sabatoging herself.

      Do the senior Gorga’s dislike Melissa because of her heritage?

    • January 7, 2013 at 8:50 PM

      I, for one, hope you’re an “insider” and absolutely right when saying the plot is TBD, secret admirer! Give me some hope for one of my formerly fave shows/pastimes/guilty pleasure hobby. 🙂 As to your other points –

      * I’ve never cared one way or the other if Melissa was what we are calling a “dancer.” It was never a problem for Miss LaNethia Leakes, right? I actually think that even in a low budget place that this Lookers “looked” to be, she was unable to work her way up to that position and have no trouble believing from watching her rockin’ videos (lol) that she didn’t have the talent needed for the position. It’s evident from those that Girl mastered a few moves (lots of head shakes and hair swinging) that helped with tips for her low level drink server duties.

      * I’ve also never cared one way or the other if she cheats (ed) on Joe. Whatever those two do or don’t do to each other is strictly between them. Just don’t make the mistake of thinking I’d ever buy a happy marriage book from these two whack jobs, lol!

      * “Why do you think no one got fired?” As another FW commenter posted on the last blog comments – although the polls are rigged on WWHL and the BRAVO blogs are highly censored – it has to be evident even to BRAVO/agenda that these Ho’s are hated. The “like” button alone tells them that much. (Think it was dc who pointed this out) I think the ManLaurKile’s all really were fired – until Hurricane Sandy. I actually don’t blame BRAVO for taking advantage of this filming opportunity – which would have been awkward with (the much needed) brand new cast. But what to do now?<<>>oops *CUT* Film some more with Penny *Maybe*

      What a CLUSTER!

      * “The Gotgas have always disliked Melissa. But not for the reasons you think. Why do you think she happily threw 2 elderly people under the bus?”

      This is the most intriguing part of your comment. I would guess that maybe the Elder Gorgas didn’t so much dislike Melissa, moreso that they blamed her for how their son Joe started behaving maybe? As to why she “happily threw to elderly people under the bus”? I think it’s because she is very self centered and just not a good person.

      • January 7, 2013 at 9:02 PM

        Hey Whaddup, great post and I agree, no one cared that Missy was/wasn’t a stripper/dancer! It was about the surrounding issues.

        And with that, I really must step away from the computer……

      • January 8, 2013 at 6:43 PM

        They disliked her because she got Joey into drugs.

        • January 9, 2013 at 6:04 PM

          aaaah haa… very interesting and very believable. You know dang well that the “classy, sexy parties” they throw… the classy part is an absolute joke… the sexy part… well I’d call it more like sleazy… the “party” part is HARD partying. I don’t doubt that for a second.

      So Secret admirer says are you saying that when topics with unfinished resolve are brought up at the reunion they are not followed through on the following season?
      Also I can see where the Gorga’s would have a problem with Meho and her behavior even if she didn’t cheat, or strip. None of us want our son’s to marry a woman who has a past like hers. Working for breast’s, stealing, sexual promiscuity, drugs, working in a gentleman’s club while dating Joe. I mean who would want their son to bring home a Meho. It would be her job as a daughter in law to seek acceptance from the family and prove to them that she had changed and matured. I would imagine seeing her in a bathing suit in so many magazines making all these sexy poses as a mother of three is not what the Gorga’s want to see their daughter in law doing especially with her past. Then to top it all off she wants to be a singer putting herself out there half dressed acting like she is a sex goddess,singing a song called “On Display” That particular song on it’s own was rubbing everyone’s face in it. That being said I can buy that somethings out there aren’t true and I can say I do see why the Gorga’s would not entertain the fact that she is married to their only son. Last but not least lets add what she has done to the Guidices. I know without a doubt if she were my daughter in law that would end all ties that bind us.

      • January 8, 2013 at 2:08 PM

        I also think we need to remember the fact that Joe Gorga has used his Dad for property investment, culminating in selling the house they lived in – hence the “I pay the rent” line. I read some interesting articles with full documentation over at Faux Reality that implied that Gorga Srn lost some security there… oh and there’s a brilliant love story to read.

        • whodat2112
          January 8, 2013 at 4:54 PM

          When SloJo said that about his dad and implied he’d been paying his dads bills/rent, it truly put a knot in my stomach! How dare a son humiliate his parents like that??? Especially knowing how “old school” Mr Gorga is. It was disgusting! Caring for your parents is the part of the “circle of life”, they cared for you in the beginning of your life and now the children should(IMO) care for the parents! Thats how I was raised and it seems to be the way most people see it!

          • January 8, 2013 at 6:11 PM

            The way I understood the article was that Joey borrowed money against the property (there’s a few actually) and it ended up in foreclosure. The mortgages were taken out in a couple of names.

            http://fauxrealityentertainment.com/in-the-pipeline-the-house-that-came-between-joey-papa-gorga/

            • January 9, 2013 at 6:27 PM

              Exactly. JoGo basically ripped his father off. To even suggest he was paying their rent “like a good son” is deceiving and twisted. It’s a slap in the face. UGH! How dare he! And TERESA is the villain!?!? Teresa could have brought all that up and made a fool out of her brother but she didn’t and I think he knows that Teresa would do nothing but protect him. It makes it all the worse and it was pretty dang horrible to begin with. MeJoGo are scum. It takes A LOT for me to say that about anyone. But they are the lowest of the lowest of the low.

          Oh yes!

    • January 8, 2013 at 2:57 PM

      Very interesting points you make secret admirer. Thanks for sharing.

      Joe must not trust Melissa if he never lets her out of his sight. And why doesn’t he trust her? He must have a reason to keep her on a tight leash.

      Realistically, though, he couldn’t have been with her at every moment of her life since they married in 2004. And how could anyone other than Joe or Melissa know that about them… you would have to have been imprisoned in their home and never allowed to sleep over the past 8 years to know how much time or not they spend together.

      Joe was a regular guy running a profitable business until they started taping their first season of RHONJ in October 2010, so it’s hard to believe he didn’t leave home to supervisor his work crews and check on the quality of their work. He was a successful landscaper (plus he spent 2008-2009 building their dream home) — how can a landscaper be successful if he never visits job sites or never meets with clients, contractors and suppliers? There is no way he didn’t leave their home to oversee his projects so, based on what you’re telling us, this means he dragged Melissa and their little kids (waking them up from their naps) along with him for every business meeting, job site visit, trip to buy materials, meetings with bankers… and every single errand he ever had to run.

      There was a scene in season 4 where Joe was at the gym with Richie. Does he really go to a gym to workout or does he actually workout at home so he can keep an eye on Melissa. Does he ever go to the doctor alone, drop by his parents without her, etc.?

      Melissa stated in interviews that Joe and their sons don’t attend church with her and Antonia on Sundays, so contrary to what you’re telling us and according to Melissa, Joe does let her out of his sight.

      Melissa obviously is not physically on a leash or permanently attached to him. During their normal life before RHONJ, I can’t believe that Joe blew off work to tag along with Melissa to the doctor, hair stylist, grocery store, bank, gym, mall, etc. And weren’t there times when one of them would have been at home with the kids so the other could run errands, etc. Was she never allowed to visit her friends and family without him? It doesn’t seem plausible, even for a man who claims to own his wife and that everything he owns, except for his kids, is for sale.

      • January 8, 2013 at 7:22 PM

        Thanks Fame for a great and logically put response!

      • January 9, 2013 at 6:33 PM

        So true. And, at least one rumor is Melissa was meeting up with an ex for lunch. Lunch… hmmmm… wouldn’t that likely be the time that JoGo is working? After all, Melissa herself made the comment that “HER husband WORKS.” And JoGu was in his father-in-laws ear saying that “Joey works too much.” Right? That’s what they said, no?

    Missed a word there, it should say they don’t want potential plot lines out there. They want a show that surprises people. Not one you watch already knowing the ending. It didn’t hurt last years ratings, but they are wise enough to know that that won’t fly again.

      Not a Gorga fan. Not even a little. Just telling it like it is. 😉
      She’s not all bad. She has had struggles in this family. Which werent all that different than anyone’s else’s.
      Except her SIL got famous and it all went downhill from there.
      As for cheating-it’s just not happening. Joe doesn’t go to work that much. He subs out. She’s on a leash.
      More so now that JOEY made her famous…no one ever looks at his role. 2 peas in a pod.

      • Bayonne Girl
        January 7, 2013 at 9:19 PM

        I’ll try to keep this short myself. Missy the Stalker didn’t cheat while married? Little over 4 years ago in Totowa? 3 years ago in Clifton? Or 5 years ago in Lyndhurst? Careful Secret, I’m from Bayonne, now in Tenefly, still have same friends, and I know the truth.
        She had struggles you say? Chasing guys in club bathrooms in exchange for her habits, perfecting her kneeling skills for other than prayer, parking lot hook ups for bonus, exchanging favors at a shore house for weeks for free tits, or the struggle of marrying a hard working man who provided for her and her only thanks to him was calling her ex to meet her for more than a hello?
        Lets get this straight Missy, you were a Ho, still are a Ho, and always be remembered a Ho. Joe had everything till he got manipulated by you and when he loses everything else he should put you back where he found you, dancing at Lookers. The only thing good he got out of you was 3 beautiful babies and he should keep them far away from your family before they taint them.

        • Secret admirer
          January 7, 2013 at 9:50 PM

          Not Melissa, sorry. Not a fan either, lots if truth in there from before the marriage. Not so much after. Mostly because her kids are close to the same age as these supposed affairs. I’m sure you’ll play the “Joeys not the dad” card. But he is. Of ALL of them. He’s always kept her close and she to him. Besides, using your timetable, during these affairs she already be knocked up or at least with a very young infant or 2-yeah sorry, but no.

          Getting one last one in with the ex before the wedding- that’s true. Unfortunately he still didn’t want her.

            Secret I believe you. Theresa’s sil is not a good person but I don’t believe she’s playing poor stupid Joe. I saw the episode where he said he owned his wife, that she’s his property or something along those lines he’s justas gross as she is. I do believe he keeps her on a leash now and that he rarely works, I also believe he owes any success he’s had to juicy Joe just as the sil owes hers to Theresa. I do not feel the least bit sorry for joey u make ur bed u lie in it.

            You’re mistaken & that will be proven during S5. For you to say she didn’t cheat while married tells me one thing, you don’t know much before she was cast for the show. He might have somewhat of a leash on her now (last 3 years) but not before. I know because our circle of friends are same and were there on different occasions even covering for her. So please save your theory and listen to my facts because plenty of facts will be revealed on S5.

              So I am assuming u were responding to secret and not me but just in case my point came across confusing… I’m just saying ppl need to stop acting like Joe is a hapless boob being tricked by some devil woman, she is Awful but nobody is that dumb. 8 years later he has some idea of what he got himself into he’s at least a little bit of a bad guy too. T needs to stay away from both of them.

              • January 8, 2013 at 6:59 PM

                It’s very obvious what Joey thinks with, and it isn’t his brain. He has always worried that Melissa didn’t love him the way he loved her. Did you see the way he looked at her when she sang that sappy song? “My Joe” or whatever it was. I thought the look on his face was almost like shock. At that moment, he believed that Melissa REALLY did love him after all. (We all know better but whatever…) He more than likely did have his suspicions that she married him “for his house,” that she cheated, and that Messy WOULD leave him for someone with more money. Melissa got what she wanted now… on Tre’s coattails of course, but she got it because she was married to Joe. She probably does appreciate him in a weird way. But do I believe she’s IN LOVE with him? Nope.

                Joe couldn’t care less WHY Melissa is with him, just that she is with him. That song gave him a glimmer of hope he probably never had before that she truly does love him (yeah right). He’s a fool… in love… in lust.

          • January 9, 2013 at 6:41 PM

            Sorry, but what you’re saying doesn’t quite add up. You’re basically saying that since they’ve been married they’ve NEVER been apart for her to have the opportunity to cheat. Sorry, but no. I don’t know either one of them nor any of their friends, but to say that for the last eight years they’ve never been apart for a long enough time for her to cheat is, well, not even improbable, I’ll go as far as saying it’s impossible.

          I added a blurb and link to the Fishbowl story in the FW article “The Lauritas Are Back for Season 5 Because Hurricane Sandy Gave Them a Storyline That Bravo Really Liked”:

          On January 7, 2013, TVFishbowl reported that the Giudices threw their doors open to others without electricity and offered one of their rental properties to a family in need, even assisting with moving them in. And local police are rumored to have relied on the Giudices more than once for such services. However, Teresa never tweeted about it, and it remains to be seen if Bravo filmed it for season 5 as they did the ‘charitable efforts’ of the other cast members.

          I thought it was Albie to begin with but lately I’m thinking it’s Chris!! On the bus ride after Juicy’s horrible “joke” Caroline seemed to comfort Chris. He’s definitely an intimate part of the family to be included at weddings, all the family holidays etc – more than just a flatmate almost like a son in-law. It could just be the lure of the camera but it seems more than that to me.

            maybe since people are catching on… maybe that’s why he hasn’t been filming?

            also, they invited him to california, but not albie’s “girlfriend?” i really just don’t know.

            i also wonder why they would be hiding it? their family obviously isn’t homophobic by any means, so maybe it’s just us looking into something that isn’t really there?

    Good Morning, Good Afternoon, & Good Evening to all

    Fame May I say well done on a great site, I have been browsing and reading your blogs and the comments left by many.

    I asked myself why this show has affected me, as I watch the other RHs and many similar reality shows and NONE of them had made me search the net for info as I did with New Jersey.

    I tried to remember when it started to get to me, and yes season 3 1st episode Joe Gorga calling his sister GARBAGE with help of his wife and her family. That was the start of the rolling stone, for all of them to treat Teresa and her family so terrible, and unbeknown to her, Friends were twisting the knife as well.

    Season 4 begins and it only gets worse, this woman a (Wonderful Mother, Faithful Wife and someone I would like as a genuine friend) is like a lamb to the slaughter.

    I know the Gorgas & Walkies have been the ones fuelling the fire, but does anyone else agree Caroline had the box of matches, I think if Danielle had not been on the show Teresa would have been her target in S 1/2.
    Does anyone else have other episodes that got under their skins, just wondering?

    • January 8, 2013 at 7:48 PM

      Season three got me from the start. I had already been in housewife research mode because of Jill Zarin so there were a few blogs I frequented. There were a lot of Teresa haters after season one because of her bankruptcy. A lot of those turned around this season when it became apparent to them what was happening to her. I didn’t like Melissa and Kathy even before they came on the show… I knew they WERE coming on the show and some of the back story and their obvious motive ticked me off.

      It’s unbelievable to me how absolutely cruel Joe is to his own sister. It floors me. And this is coming from someone who has family problems… my sister is devious and self-centered. But Joe takes the cake. It blows my mind. It’s crazy to me how people can’t see this. I don’t get it one bit.

    • happylady
      January 8, 2013 at 11:16 PM

      I agree , big red was gunning for Theresa after the punta cana incident. She had the matches and has been fanning the flames ever since. No one messes with ma barker and her boys dontcha know? Lol

      • January 9, 2013 at 2:29 PM

        Happy, It truly is the only thing that makes any type of logical sense. I was puzzled by the cookbook comments, so I wanted to read it for myself and bought the book. Well nothing that big to rant on and on and on and on and on about. The good news too, is I happen to love the cookbook(s). Then the mag rags — seriously? Nope not buying it, Caro and Jac switched after Punta the timeline fits perfectly.

        • happylady
          January 9, 2013 at 3:41 PM

          Exactly msjulesaz, i was dumbfounded as to the level of harshness and well let’s face it plain old disgust that was directed at Theresa. I really couldn’t understand how you not only throw away a friendship of many years over a perceived misunderstanding,( the cookbook comments)but not even give her the simple benefit of the doubt . The punta cana incident had to be it, and thrown into that the rift with Dina, which is somehow Theresas’ fault as well.

    Season 3 got to me also. At one point I even thought if it is 4 against 1 Teresa must’ve done something. Well, we still don’t know what Teresa did that was so bad her friends turned against her. I never liked the Gorgas from day one. The christening was atrocious, no one would act that way towards family on such a special occasion. So I started to look for answers and stumbled upon this site. Now it all makes sense. Joe Gorga is the worst of them, to allow this travesty against his family to continue. People do see through them, a lot of negativity towards the Gorgas,Manzos and Lauritas on other blogs. Bravo isn’t fooling anyone!

    • January 8, 2013 at 7:59 PM

      LOL… I posted just above you… before reading your comment… something similar. JoGo is THE worst. Melissa is horrendous, but Joe is family. If this isn’t some big joke on us all, I just don’t understand how anyone could do that to a sibling who obviously never had any kind of serious problem with each other before. I don’t get how ANYONE could think what they are all doing to Teresa is okay.

    I wonder if Jacqueline is having some problems with Kim D this season. I know she’s supposed good telephone buddies with Kim D but seems since the reunion she has been avoiding her and she just tweeted the other Posche Boutique, thanking them for styling her! It just seems kind of odd since Kim D is supposed to be filming alot more his season and I would think she would support her.

    • January 8, 2013 at 7:42 PM

      I’m sure it’s part of the “act.”

        Hi dch60

        Somehow I think so too, I peeked at Kim D Twitter she hasnt been on hers for a while???? you would think after miss wacko quoted other store, she would of appeared in the past she has been very protective of her business.

        Wouldnt it be just so FINE if something has gone on while filming, and miss wako has said to kim I don’t want to be your friend anymore and in spite went to the opposition with my new friends Melissa and Co.

    Off topic, but if you go to the Dancing with the Stars website you can type in a reality star you would like to see on season 16. I think Teresa would be a good candidate and it would give her another avenue other than the real housewives franchise! JMO

    • January 8, 2013 at 7:55 PM

      I’m afraid doing that would cause them to ask Melissa instead just to spite Teresa and her fans. Could you imagine?!?! If Melissa was on DWTS? That would be IT… we’d have to riot! LOL Just kidding!!!!

        January 8, 2013 at 11:36 PM

        If so I remember reading how Kate Gossilen was not to popular and was soon short shifted.

        • January 9, 2013 at 1:49 PM

          I think either of them would do well, but of course would prefer Teresa on the show. I can’t imagine Joey letting Melissa on the show to be that close to another hot man.

  32. January 8, 2013 at 10:35 PM

    Wow I have not commented on something for so long…

    How’s everyone doing?

    I am from London, United Kingdom saying Cheers from rainy and winter skies of gloom!

    Happy New Year to all!

    Let me rant on this post…I am not surprised that Teresa would be the blame puppet for revealing Melissa’s secrets. I just don’t think that she cares anymore about how she is perceived on television as long as she is raking the money additionally to her many products that she has been putting out to pay off Joe and herself debt and to provide for their family needs.

    I am also just wondering if Teresa would leave the show, Melissa would have finally got what she wanted which is to be the star by playing the “victim” by season 6. I think I heard that season 6 would be the final season of the franchise. Bravo knows that reality shows are not long lasting unless they constant spin offs like Keeping up with Kardashians (Don’t get me started on this franchise as annoying as it is.) However knowing that Teresa is their break out star just like Nene is to Atlanta…there is likely chance that if she was to be brought back for season 6 she would obviously demand more money.

    Another thing I like to address is that does anyone notice when Bravo shows Teresa’s family versus Melissa’s family…Melissa’s children are hardly heard or seen on the television…I swear if her children were not shown I would never believe that she had children the way they act towards each other like they’re in early twenties still living single stage. BTW I am in my early twenties. My mother always told me that there is a time and a place for everything and my father always said to me that time waits on no man or woman. So while the money may seem all good and now and parading their sexual details every chance they get…eventually Joe Gorga would realize that time waits on not even him and all his current relationships with his family would have a toll on him and the children probably not now but more than likely 10 years from now.

    • Alissa Rose
      January 9, 2013 at 5:22 PM

      Hi Rushie, great comment! You are very observant, sounds like your Mum and Dad taught you well! Melissa deals with her children (on camera at least) only by imposing her needs on all activities involving them. For example, Antonia’s birthday party was all about Melissa (“I only have one little girl”). Also when she took Antonia and her cousins out for that nail session (“I could take these little girls out every day). There seems no recognition of their individuality as human beings, only how Melissa relates to them as female-child-objects, who should like this and this and this, and aren’t I a great mother/aunt for doing this with them. Also her kids observe some pretty undignififed and inappropriately sexual behaviour from both their parents. And obviously this could just be posing in front of the camera, and most likely she is more responsive off-camera, but this is what she is using as a platform to say she is such a great family member, so my comment is based on that. Not going too much into comparisons, and I am by no means a blind Teresa lover, but Teresa on camera displays a lot more actual warmth and relating to each of her kids as people. Anyway, good luck to other Aussies on here, particularly Queensland, heat is moving there today 🙂

      • January 10, 2013 at 10:08 AM

        Thanks @Alissa Rose! I know right like the whole scene where Melissa was doing a photo shoot for her album cover and the make up artist or photographer was telling her to pretend that she was having sex with Joe and her daughter was right there! She claimed that she did not know how to look “sexy” so she started moaning/sighing (in a moaning voice). I absolutely appalled.

    • LifeIsGood
      January 9, 2013 at 5:24 PM

      Welcome, Rushie!

      I believe that that one day, Joe Gorga will realize he married badly. But I don’t think he is enough of a man to set his pride aside, accept the awful truth, and rebuild. If she finds someone better, Melissa will be the one to end it.

      Listen to your Mother and Father! It sounds like they are giving you very sound advice!

      • January 10, 2013 at 10:04 AM

        Thanks LifeisGood! I have a huge family all my cousins on my mother’s family are girls and my father’s side all are boys!

    A diamond in the rough! I can’t get enough of this website right now!!! What an impressive, investigative effort put forth by the author and commenters alike. While I realize that the NJ Housewives franchise is reality TV and meant for entertainment purposes, it still is somewhat ‘reality.’ Melissa Gorga and her husband are pathetic creatures who sought fame, bottom line, relentlessly jealous of their own relative. Watching the videos of Melissa and her ‘blossoming music career,’ at Six Flags, while looking like a half lame Britney Spears from 1999, is pure comedic entertainment in itself!! It’s the equivalent of someone with a broken ankle pretending that they are going to win the New York City Marathon, just because you say it to a camera- doesn’t mean that it is true!!!! Can’t wait to read future updates— especially on the upcoming season!!!

    I think that Teresa really wants out of the show she really hates how this is destorying her family. I was wondering does anyone know if she signed a five year contract at the very beginning of the show. Maybe this is why and she has to put up with all of this.

    I love this site and I wanted to thank Fame for the blog and all of the posters. I have always been a Teresa fan and day one I spotted Melissa for who she is! The problem is that I started feeling alone in this belief…until I found this site! Also what fully confirmed Jaq as crazed for me was when she had that convo with T at her house and was mad at her for not sharing more of her personal life with Jaq! That reaffirmed all I believe bc if Tre was some spiteful person she would be airing everyones drama and she chooses not to!

    January 9, 2013 at 1:12 PM

    Also I have been seeing some of Andy Cohens tweets to Teresa and how he didn’t send a reply to Melissa’s New Years tweet. I was starting to think he is doing this to try to show that he likes Tre so when he sets her up again he can say no I really do like Teresa see I responded to her. Idk it just seems suspicious that he is being so nice to her lately

    Should a married man of an author documenting her hot and happy marriage be retweeting these types of things?
