Melissa Gorga Fights Traffic Citations for Her Bentley Borrowed from Emporio and Scammer Bobby Khan; Khan is Wanted by the FBI (Updated 4/18/2015)

May 1, 2013

UPDATE 4/18/2015: Joe and Melissa Gorga’s car dealer is wanted by the FBI for fraud. The Bentley Melissa had been driving for the past few seasons came from his dealership. Afzal “Bobby” Khan and his dealership were featured on season 6 of RHONJ. The following is the description from his FBI poster:

Afzal Khan is wanted for allegedly defrauding customers and financial institutions while he was the owner of Emporio Motor Group, a car dealership in Ramsey, New Jersey. From approximately December 2013 to September 2014, Khan allegedly obtained loans for vehicles that were never delivered, obtained loans for vehicles without proper title, and issued insufficient funds checks. Khan also allegedly offered to sell vehicles on consignment and then neither returned the vehicles nor provided any funds for the vehicle sales. One financial institution has an estimated exposure of $1.7 million in automobile loans. Additional fraudulent loans, and approximately 75 individual victims, have also been identified. A federal arrest warrant was issued for Khan on October 21, 2014, by the United States District Court, District of New Jersey, Newark, New Jersey, after he was charged with wire fraud. The FBI is offering a reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to the arrest of Afzal Khan.

According to the May 6, 2013 edition of The National Enquirer, as reported by Celebrity Dirty Laundry, Melissa Gorga was pulled over in Boonton, NJ, driving a white Bentley, and issued five citations: speeding, no proof of registration, no proof of insurance, unclear license plates, and not having her child in a safety seat:

“She tried to talk the cop into letting her go, but the officer told her to relax because it was going to take a while to write all five of her tickets. Melissa had neither her registration or proof of insurance, her kid wasn’t in a child safety seat, and she had unclear license plates. Those things alone came with a fine of $598 and a court date set for this coming Tuesday [April 30]. While relatives have told Melissa just to pay it and move on, the tough mom of three thinks she can get the whole thing dropped and intends to put up a good fight. She insists that she wasn’t speeding and so when that is introduced to the judge they will throw out all of the other charges as well.”

According to a tweet from Julia Meade (@juliameadee) at 3:12 PM on April 30, 2013 (as reported by AllAboutTRH), Melissa was spotted in the Boonton courthouse on April 30th:

“Can’t believe I saw @melissagorga at boonton court today.”

Faux Reality Entertainment reported that Melissa pleaded guilty for failing to have proper safety restraint on a child, failing to have the vehicle inspected, and failing to properly display license plates — “the remaining violations were dismissed with court costs assessed against Melissa since she produced a registration and an insurance card for the prosecutor:”

“Missy appeared in court for what was supposed to be a first appearance to enter a plea. Due to the confrontation that Missy had with the police officer, the prosecutor indicated that he could not amend or dismiss any violations. Missy’s request to seal the record (so that it would not be available to the public) was rejected” [more at Faux Reality Entertainment].

Boonton, NJ is the location of a company that sued the Gorgas for failing to pay for the installation of a fire sprinkler and alarm system in a Paterson apartment complex. As reported by NJ.com on September 9, 2010:

“Melissa Gorga owes a Boonton sprinkler company $50,000 for work on an apartment complex in Paterson, according to a lawsuit filed last week in Superior Court in Morris County. Gorga initially reneged on an agreement to pay nearly $300,000 for the installation of a fire sprinkler and alarm system at a Paterson apartment complex, the complaint said. The complaint accuses Gorga, her husband Guiseppe and their business, Gorga Enterprises Inc. of breach of contract and unjustly enriching themselves by misdeeds, among other things, by failing to pay for work performed by Bravante Automatic Sprinkler Corp.”

Based on tweets from Bobby Khan in August 2012, it seems like the Gorgas may have worked out a deal with Emporio Motor Group to get the Bentley at a discounted price, or as a loaner car, in exchange for using their “celebrity” to market the business (see photos and tweets below and at the end of this blog post):

It seems like the Gorgas worked out another deal with Bobby Kahn in 2014 to keep borrowing a Bentley by featuring him and his dealership on season 6 of RHONJ.

Emporio Motor Group was featured on season 6, episode 4, “A Hairy Situation” (photo below): Joe and Melissa met with Bobby Khan to get an estimate for repairs to the front bumper of the Bentley after Melissa had another fender bender.

Bobby Khan

According to NorthJersey.com on September 25, 2014:

Afzal “Bobby” Khan opened his luxury car dealership, Emporio Motor Group in Ramsey, 17 months ago with a lot of flash. Now, Khan is the subject of complaints by clients who say he owes them a lot of cash. A group of car sellers alleges Khan sold their pre-owned Porsches, Bentleys and BMWs on consignment and never paid them or transferred the titles.

The state Motor Vehicles Commission suspended Emporio’s dealership license Sept. 12 and the state Division of Consumer Affairs is investigating the complaints

Emporio clients said they arranged for Khan to sell their luxury vehicles on “consignment,” with no money changing hands until the cars were sold. They were later told that the vehicles had been sold, but the clients did not receive payment for them. In at least one case, a client is still paying off the car loan for a Porsche that Khan claimed to have sold, because the title is still in the client’s name. The client also hasn’t been paid by Khan.

The dealership appeared to be closed Thursday with a gate blocking the entrance.

When Emporio opened in April 2013, cast members of reality shows “The Real Housewives of New Jersey’’ and “Jersey Shore’’ posed next to $700,000 Lamborghinis at the launch party. Khan appeared on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey’’ this past summer, discussing the repair of a cast member’s Bentley.

According to a TV report on the story by WABC (click here to watch the video), Kim Granatell, who didn’t want to be identified but the voice in the video is unmistakably hers, also was scammed by the dealership:

“He’s a smooth operator, all flash and no cash.” This customer, who is actually a reality TV star says she was rooked by Emporio Motor Group too. “I don’t want or need the money, its about justice for all here and I have to help these people,” she said.

The reality show star says she found out the car she consigned to Emporio Motor Group was sold to someone in Florida. Yet she never got paid in full and they never got her title. “I don’t know how he’s getting away with it.”

Melissa, Jacqueline and Jenny Farley of MTV made an appearance at Emporio Motor Group’s showroom grand opening in Ramsey, NJ, on April 11, 2013:

Back in November 2011, Emperio Motor Group hired Teresa Giudice to unveil the Zenvo $1.8 million sports car (if the November 12, 2011 article by NJ.com is correct):

“Those who have an affinity for flashy women and flashier cars will be able to get their fix next week. On Wednesday, the Emporio Motor Group in Jersey City will be unveiling the Zenvo ST-1 50S at the Liberty House in Jersey City. The event will be hosted by Teresa Giudice of Real Housewives of New Jersey fame. Only 15 models are available in the world, and of them, only three are reserved for the U.S. market. All three are exclusively sold by the Emporio Motor Group. And for those who can afford the $1.8 million price tag, buyers will also receive an Aspen Zenvo Watch valued at $49,000 as a bonus.” [NJ.com, November 12, 2011, ‘Real Housewives’ star Teresa Giudice will help unveil $1.8M car in Jersey City]

However, Teresa was busy taping Celebrity Apprentice, so she handed if off to Melissa, who acted like it was her gig all along, tweeting:

“Looking forward to hosting tomorrow night’s unveiling of the countries most expensive car!! $1.8 million dollar @zenvousa”

Bobby Khan of Emporio Motor Group tweeted on November 19, 2011, that “Melissa was my first choice from day one”:

“Melissa Gorga was my choice from day one!… all the haters can shutup.”

After the event, the press did not mention that Teresa handed off the gig to Melissa because of a scheduling conflict with Celebrity Apprentice:

“Last night guests ventured to The Liberty House in Jersey City to cover the unveiling of the Zenvo ST-1 50s with Bravo TV’s New Jersey Housewife Melissa Gorga and her husband Joe Gorga. The event, hosted by The Emporio Motor Group, started with Jullian James singing his new single, ‘My Sweet Radio,’ as the Housewife showed off the 1.8 million dollar sports car. The car is only one of three being sold in the U.S. and the guests had cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and an up close look at the rare car.” [GuestofaGuest.com, November 17, 2011, The Emporio Motor Group Unveils The Zenvo]

Bobby Khan appears to be a big fan of the Gorgas, tweeting them “Happy Anniversary” in August 2012, and telling them to “enjoy your new Bentley.” He tweeted Joe in October 2012, stating that Joe’s brand new Lamborghini just got detailed and would be delivered that Friday.

The Gorgas are driving Bentleys and Lamborhginis yet don’t pay their subcontractors and workers (click here for the story).

“Hey Joe, you are the biggest a$$, pay us the money you owe us for installing your elevator!” – Stephen Ferrara, Asst. Sales Manager at Standard elevator [NYPost.com]

“Nice house I helped you build. Pay me the money you owe me bigshot.” – Scott Roberts, University of South Carolina [NYPost.com]

The following are Bobby Khan’s tweets to Melissa over the past year and a half (ignore the timestamps, which are incorrect).

    Oh, yeah Melissa! The most important thing out of this is the fact she did not have her child properly restrained. Whether it was little Joey, Gino, or Antonia, kids are precious cargo and should be buckled up. Even Antonia should be in a booster seat. What the heck was she thinking?! Guess it’s not cool to have a kid’s seat in “your” Bentley?! Ya know, the one Bobby Khan lent her for free publicity.

    • elemcee
      May 1, 2013 at 8:18 PM

      I do not remember ever not putting my children in their seats or boosters. Ever. I always had extra children with us, also. My best friend has twins, and my niece lived with us a lot of her childhood, she is the same age as my son, so it was like having twins. So, there were times I had four or five children in seats. You cannot allow a child out of their seat once or you will fight until the end of time to get them in the seat the next time. This makes me sick! No matter how difficult, it is beyond important.

      • Confused
        May 2, 2013 at 11:02 AM

        I’m with you. I ALWAYS had my child in his seat. Never made a big deal about it, so it never was an issue, sort of like changing your clothes daily. Guess what, he’s now 21 and always wears a seat belt. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

        I may be a nudge on this topic, but if I see anyone riding with their kids unrestrained, I always stop and talk with them and kindly remind them that their children are worth the effort.

        • May 4, 2013 at 11:23 AM

          melissa know this has been the law in jersey for yrs.she doesn’t care what people say so i’m glad she got caught speeding,before she killed one of her kids

    “tough mom” foolish mum more like it worried about the speeding charge to get the other ones thrown out wouldn’t you be more concerned about thr child restraint one being in the piblic eye? Maybe she really was hanging out with Britney Spears who also doesn’t like to properly ensure her child’s safety. I know there is no such thing as a perfect mother but protection is kinda up there on the automatic behaviors list.

    • Jeannie5233
      May 1, 2013 at 8:25 PM

      I would agree that proper precautions to ensure your child’s safety would be tantamount on most parents’ list.

      And even though she may not have been convicted, she was stopped for speeding. Speeding while her child is not properly restrained – “I was born to be a mommy!”. . . .Melissa Gorga

    May 1, 2013 at 7:40 PM

    Typical Melissa, instead of owning the fact that she broke the law and apologizing for her behavior, especially the car restraint, she is going to go bat her eyes in a mini skirt and expect it to go away. As stated many times, if she would just own her past, own her mistakes, and own the fact that she is not perfect, people would at least know she is real. Not that I would like her if she straight out said I came on RHONJ any way I could, even if it meant taking down my sister-in-law because I am a fame whore…but at least I would respect her for her honesty. There is nothing to like or respect when we are talking about someone who is fake and a liar. There is nothing to like about someone with no morals or values and someone who will lie and cheat and blame others to get what she wants.
    I am not perfect and I have done things I wish I hadn’t done, my kids are not perfect and also have done things that I wish they hadn’t done, but honesty is a must, compassion for others is mandatory…a moral compass to live life is of the utmost importance. We all make mistakes, we learn from them, own them, and move on and vow to do better tomorrow. Bulldog comes to mind!

    I was absolutely terrified that my children would be injured if they were not in car seats . I always told my kids the car would not start if they weren’t buckled in. LOL. I’m sad Melissa would risk her children being hurt. Speeding and child riding unrestrained , seriously who does that except an idiot?

    The going price for a 2013 Bentley Flying Spur is anywhere from $171,3216 (invoice) to $209,600 (MSRP). Adding on options can bring the price as high as $245,440.

    With $21,244 down, you too can drive one of these luxury cars with a 36 months/5,000 miles/per year lease all for a $2,131 per month lease payment!!

    The Gorgas are driving this car gratis – there is no way they can afford this. Bobby Khan worked out some kind of deal – he obviously is a famewhore hooking up his business with RHONJ. If I remember correctly, the very same week Melissa got “her” car, he delivered a Lamborghini to Joey too.

    This is so laughable and even funnier she got caught while driving this particular car. The girl just keeps bringing it on herself – she can’t help it!!

      • May 1, 2013 at 11:21 PM

        She could very well be (why someone would want on the show, I have no clue) as I couldn’t figure out how their tweets etc. would result in someone buying a lambo or Bentley. Let’s face it, the fans MeHo has aren’t in that tax bracket. I can’t remember if it was jersey or jersy_girl in a previous thread that stated that he all kinds of dealerships from the lower end to the high end. That made a bit more sense but not “loaning” out the cars. Something is definitely fishy there.

        • embee

      May 1, 2013 at 11:15 PM

      You mean a landscaper (mulch anyone) can’t afford a Lamborghini? Really now – most of the houses around here need tons of mulch and a decent pool guy. With such a “classy” website I’m sure Joe is just taking in the dough. As for Emporio – well I was shocked when the abandoned Peugeots were towed from the long closed “dealership”. It’s a dumpy little shack across from the Wendys near the Ramsey Rt 17 Rail Station. Folks around here are a little suspect about it. The fact that it’s “endorsed” by the Gorgas really means it must be a “klassy” place. Makes the whole place just seem like the hobby of a Russian mobster…

      • Jeannie5233
        May 1, 2013 at 11:35 PM

        It does take alot of mulch and compost to pay for a Lamborghini AND a Bentley. Hope Joey has a huge client base. Pretty tough to keep up with business on a day to day basis though, given all he ever does is follow his wife around everywhere she goes and, oh, she does go – they are never home.

        • May 2, 2013 at 12:56 AM

          Who knows what Joey really does other than follow MeHo around like a lost puppy dog. I live in Phoenix, the land of pools and know a lot of independent pool guys. They can actually make a decent living if they get the high end customers — 70-110K a year and that is just for pools and maintaining them. If he is actually doing landscaping etc. as well, I would imagine he’s subbing most of it out. I just don’t that kind of business plus Bravo supporting their lifestyle.

        May 2, 2013 at 9:38 PM

        If it’s for promotional purposes then yes the Gorgas have to pay taxes. It isn’t an outright gift from the dealership , nor was it a prize awarded. The car seems to be payment in kind for promoting the dealership, making appearances and uh ahem services rendered. So I hope they claim it on their taxes.

      • May 4, 2013 at 11:35 AM

        my son who is in army bought us brand new car for christmas, we had to fill out form saying it was a gift,and how he was related to us,so we weren’t charged tax, but melissa and poison aren’t related,to dealer, they will have to pay both state and fed taxes, unless they are doing something shady.

    Hey guys, its been a while since I’ve commented but I’ve been reading all posts. I’ve been very busy cause the hubby and I are getting a house and getting everything set up is a nightmare! That being said, what the heck is Melissa thinking? who does this woman think she is? Does this woman not realize that her child could die? So it’s ok for you to wear your seatbelt and save your life but you potentially endanger the life of your child by not properly restraining him? There was a man who died not too long ago here in SC leaving the same air force base my husband works at and crossing the first light leaving base he got hit by a semi – needless to say, he died instantly. We now pay so much attention when driving, I realized more than ever that you put your life in danger as soon as you turn on the ignition. I feel like children are so precious that I would go out of my ways to protect them -even if they aren’t mine. How much do you guys want to bet that she played the whole “I am Melissa Gorga, star of RHNJ.” If she did, I will pee my pants (excuse the grossness) cause it did not work for Lindsey Lohan, not even Resse Witherspoon!! I hate it when people think they are above the law, I pay taxes and if I get pulled over and get a ticket, you should too!

    As far as the cars, why have something that you do not need? And obviously cannot afford?! Sorry, I don’t care who you are, you’re Bravo paycheck cannot be that much..It’s one thing to own/afford to have a BMW and Mercedes (which are expensive cars themselves) but a Lamborghini AND a Bentley? Ummm, sounds like a favor to me. Now don’t get me wrong, I like things as much as the next person but a Lamborghini? When it’s known you owe people money? When you berated your sister because the “fame and money went to her head?” I’m not expert in law but I’m pretty sure that there’s gonna be problems if you are being sued cause you owe people money but are driving around in a Bentley and Lamborghini. Are these cars for people with 3 kids? If I had a Bentley, -as expensive as they are- I probably would not let a messy 5 year old on the car. Also, where is there place for a car seat on the Lambo? Oh wait!!! The Gorgas don’t use them! It’s prolly Tre’s fault.

    Honestly, why does Bravo hire these people? Yeah, drama sells but stupidity is a hard thing to sell. I give up on Bravo and their housewives…Sorry, I don’t care how friendly they are being with Tre all of them are fake and should be ashamed in their choices.

    PS> She should borrow the carseat Caroline still uses for Alby and Chris, I’m sure she has a couple 🙂

    What makes me bang my head against my keyboard is that I actually defended MeHo (and most know I can’t stand the skankass) and said I didn’t believe that she didn’t secure her child(ren) in car seats. My daughter is 21 years old and NEVER rode without the age appropriate child seat. She was a preemie and was small for her age and was 8 before the seat belt alone fit her correctly (it was 5 back then for the age limits) Was it a PITA, sure but the alternative could be a dead child. I dealt with the “inconvenience”.

    I just hope she comes clean and says yep, I screwed up. Don’t make excuses as there is not one that is valid in my mind. Encourage others to remember of child safety and to use car seats.

      I had a difficult time believing MeGo would speed and her child was riding unrestrained. Can’t fathom it. I wonder if she was buckled up for safety? I thought the only people who allowed children to ride around were crack addicts and drunks or druggies, my apologies to them. Apparently fame whores are not subject to rules like the rest of the population. Whu isn’t MeGo strapped into an orange vest and picking up trash along the highway. Why isn’t radaronline making an example of MeGo and her piss poor parenting skills. Born to be a mom ? Please…I would call het a hood rat, hood rat hoochie mama but I don’t want to insult hood rats.

          As Tre says , viewers either love or hate her and she understands. Tre is one smart cookie. Radar only reflects what we all have been saying Teresa is the Star of RHONJ. Radar Online, RT, all know that an article about Teresa sends site traffic into overdrive. People, Star, In Touch all the rag mags know that gossip about Teresa sells magazines. MeGo should be kissing the ground she walks on because the entire cast needs Teresa to survive and pomp their products. Just ask Caroline how well that book is selling…..

        my children are 17 and 11 and I still tell them to put their seat belt on each time we get in the car. What are people thinking I can understand if a parent decides they don’t want to use a seat belt but the children need to be in one. It’s about safety not even about laws come on parents use the dame seat belts…

          ITA Dave. Your kids will buckle in automatically when they grow up. Mine are now 30-somethings and always buckle up. I am always shocked when people are thrown out of cars in accidents when a good deal of the time a seat belt would save lives. Most auto accidents happen within a short distance of one’s home and there really isn’t ever an excuse.

    Interesting she couldn’t get it suppressed for two reasons. 1. She thinks she deserves privacy 2. She thinks she deserves privacy. It’s pure lunacy and I’m thrilled people operating in the real world don’t tolerate such foolery! Seriously you want to live your life in the public eye and expect everyone else to expose them warts and all but expect traffic violations to be suppressed? I’ll have what she’s having.

          Sorry to butt in Sackem, but I wanted to congratulate Moma too, I have been on just a little bit, and i am catching up to all of this, so a big congratulation on the little one, lots of blessings and happy times for you and family Moma, and it a boy, another boyfriend for little Ava 🙂

          I hope everyone in here is doing great, even though I know some of us are having tough times, it is important to have a positive attitude and realize that in the same way we have problems we do have lots of blessing and reasons to be thankful !!

          OMG, I don’t know if I am going to stay away from the tv coming June, its looking interesting no? I know I say I wasn’t going to, but… lol

          Sackem, its there a way to record the series and send it to you by e-mail, I know is private but I think we can say we know each other a little bit to trust our e-mails, just my opinion, if for any reason is not a comfortable thought I completely understand, I have a recorder so maybe?? if I manage how to work it 🙂

        It’s a landslide…haha.

        I always said when I messed up as a parent…opps, there goes the mommy of the year award! But the most important thing as a parent is to know there is NO perfect parent…you will make mistakes, but not bothering to put your child in a car seat that can cost them their lives is not a mistake, that is just not caring enough. But as long as you show your children how much you love them and teach them right from wrong, keep them safe, they will be flourish. My very favorite song in the whole wide world is “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts , because that song sums it up for me as to what I want for my children:

        I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
        And each road leads you where you want to go,
        And if you’re faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
        I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
        And if one door opens to another door closed,
        I hope you keep on walkin’ till you find the window,
        If it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,

        But more than anything, more than anything,
        My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
        Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
        You never need to carry more than you can hold,
        And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
        I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
        Yeah, this, is my wish.

        I hope you never look back, but ya never forget,
        All the ones who love you, in the place you left,
        I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
        And you help somebody every chance you get,
        Oh, you find God’s grace, in every mistake,
        And you always give more than you take.

        But more than anything, yeah, and more than anything,
        My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
        Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
        You never need to carry more than you can hold,
        And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
        I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
        Yeah, this, is my wish.

Burns my biscuits that she made up a story about okay..future bullying and maligning Teresa’s kids.

        Once again, tonight Melissa is out and about – first a stop at the clubhouse to film a WWHL special with Andy – this is Melissa making sure Teresa isn’t the only one fiming a special with Andy – and next onto the OK Magazine Sexy SINGLES party!! Why is Melissa attending a Singles party?! Does this mom ever stay home with her kids?

        And, yes Aint Pittypat – Melissa burned your biscuits and she frosted my cookies with that “future bullies” crap she pulled on Teresa’s kids. Another reason why I don’t think Teresa and Melissa are getting along. If someone ever said something like that about my kids, their head would be handed to them on a silver platter.

        • May 1, 2013 at 11:40 PM

          Please don’t tell me the skank is getting a one on one with Andy. I just can’t even fathom why. All she does is lie, lie and then forget what she lied about. I won’t be watching,

          Melissa only cares about Melissa, her kids are an after thought. I don’t love Lysa, but thank goodness they at least have some stability with her.

          That whole “future” bully story was so wrong and sad on so many levels. Her nieces will see that one day. I think Melissa really thought we’d buy the victim story and that her kids were in danger from their cousins. Fail.

          The woman just annoys me so bad as she is a true skank.

          Yes it does !! and it is BS, but it is my fault too, I haven’t been taking care of myself that well. But I am going to. Yes, I start solids and theres a lot of mumbo jumbo out there so I am asking my sisters, not that I am a first time mom but after 12 years you forget details about taking care of baby, so far he likes apple, sweet potato, banana, carrots, a little oats, rice cereal, I am having a little trouble with formula, he doesn’t like anything, just like my daughter, I feed her carnation, and she is a healthy and strong girl, but I am reading so much stuff about it that I feel hesitant about give it to him too, I am gonna ask the Dr on next appoinment.

She also likes to smell me, that is weird but i know she will grow out of it soon

            She is. She’s only little due to genetics. The thing I’m struggling with is getting her to sleep. Once she closes her eyes she’s good. We got 7 hours then 3 hours do I know this sounds trivial but in order to put her to sleep, she needs to be in our arms and she has to be in deep sleep to be transferred to bed. Oh and there is no such thing as a day sleep – she’ll grab a nap in the pram or car but that’s it. I’m nervous about tough love though.

              i know it’s none of my business, but I highly recommend the Ferber method… I know it’s hard to wrap one’s mind around, but our pediatrician recommended it to us and I’ve never been more happy with our choice. Our daughter is 3 1/2 and she is hands down the best sleeper/napper ever.

              I had nannied for many yrs before our first and hands down biggest source of misery from every mom i cared for: children having a terribly hard time falling asleep on their own and mom’s not being able to continue doing this as they got older.

              i do think that we did the modified version of ferber…. U put them to bed, drowsy but awake. If they cry, u let them for 5 min, then you can peek in crib to make sure they are safe (no eye contact, no talking, no touching), if they still cry, you let them go 10 min before checking in, then 15 and so on(this is more for your piece of mind that they are safe, not for baby’s comfort). Our daughter never made it past the 10-15 min wait before she fell asleep. It takes about 2 bed times and then the babies have it figured out.

              Not pushing any parenting technique on anyone, my best friend does attachment parenting and sleeps with her 3 children and husband sleeps in another room. They love it (except the husband lol). So it’s totally to each his own. I just love having some alone time for myself or with my husband after baby is asleep so i thought I’d share. 🙂

                Thankyou so much for your advice. I really appreciateit. I’ve started to let her cry a little but cave after about five mins because it seems like an eternity but she needs to know how to go to sleep. She can sleep in any environment but it’s the getting there. I guess I get nervous about leaving emotional scars – this parenting thing is tricky!

              Sackem, my children are both adults now,sniff. But, at three months if they wanted to be held until they went to sleep I would have done so. I also think, looking back, some people just do not sleep well. Junior has never been a good sleeper. Juniorette could sleep 14 hours a day. My husband would not nap unless he was outside, so his mother put him in his pram and buried him in blankets if it was cold (he was born in Rhode Island). He has never slept more than six hours at night. I fear for our relationship when he retires! I am a greedy sleeper! My niece (who lived with us a lot of her childhood) never slept, ever. They say babies cannot keep themselves awake, I beg to differ because that baby just did not sleep. You know your baby best. You will do a good job. You need to sleep also, the two of you will figure it out together.

      Goldie –

      First of all, NO ONE is above the law – whether common or not.

      Secondly, you really have a fixation on the term “low rent” You use it quite often. Usually, when one uses a specific term or phrase repeatedly in describing someone else, that person is projecting their own self-worth. Are you feeling a little morally corrupt yourself? Perhaps you should ask the school psychologist, goldcoins79, for some help.

          I’m not educating you – I wouldn’t even attempt to try to educate someone with multiple identities and personalities.

          You defend someone who has literally put her child’s life in danger. Sorry, not putting your kid in the proper restraint in a moving vehicle is inexcuseable even for the sainted Melissa. For that alone, she deserves a hell of a lot more than dirt thrown at her. Ever see a dead kid lying in the street thrown from a car – well, I have and it is a horrific sight I shall never forget.

          And calling people low rent, which means morally corrupt, is backbiting. You have had no problem backbiting Teresa in your previous comments on this forum. Pot calling kettle black much?! So please, you can either “keep talking that mess” or you can take your own advice and see yourself “to the left”. I’m not going anywhere. Regards to Dr. Chadmichael and guida.

It is a parent’s responsibility to make certain their children are kept safe. Unfortunately, Melissa showers herself with dirt. This was a perfect opportunity to admit she made a mistake and own up to it.

          Pretending to be wealthy on a reality show, I would bet you consider that “class”.

    • May 2, 2013 at 12:37 AM

      Make sure the care seat is weight appropriate for her. There is a certain point that the car seats become dangerous because they weigh too much are too long, etc. The booster seats prop them up so that the normal seat belts fit in the appropriate spots. Way back when my daughter was in that transition period they had places you could go that would measure, weigh and fit them to ensure they were properly secured. I’m sure there is something like that around nowadays.

    Prayers for Mr. Max & Fam momJ………….and may I just add (TIA!) that I totally believed the National Enquirer report from the get go? NE gets a bad rap, but I became a believer during the OJ trial – when the prosectution couldn’t refute “I wouldn’t wear those ugly ass shoes” but The Enquirer found and published pics of OJ wearing them getting a shoe shine!

      NE also outed John Edwards as a cheater, too! I remember thinking, ‘yeah, right, John’s wife is dying from cancer! He wouldn’t cheat on her!’! I was wrong. I’m certain NE won a journalism award for their ‘investigative’ reporting that year? I do believe the story NE wrote about Melissa having a girlfriend in HS while she lived in Florida. Come to think of it, last season when all the ‘Tre backstabbed us by selling stories to tabloid magazines’ came out, did Melies bring up the NE story?

    It’s a BOY!!!! Max Anthony made his appearance last night early and unexpected!!! His first 20 hours were a bit rough as he had to be intubated and put on a ventilator for some respiratory distress but just found out they were able to remove the breathing tube a few minutes ago!!! Please pray my baby continues to improve and we can hold him soon!!!!”

    Our baby is breathing on his own. Please continue to pray that we bring our baby home with his mother. I will check in when I return this evening. Please hug and kiss your little ones, children are such precious gifts.

All the best to you and many blessings for you and family 🙂

      But they are on a reality tv show – they’re the ones asking us to be interested in their personal lives. Here you have a person who insinuated throughout last season that Teresa was a bad, irresponsible parent. So bad in fact that she had to move away from her to protected her children. Anyone else recall the little slights about Tersa’s mothering skills particularly when it came to Gia and yet this brainyac can’t maintain her child’s security. As a new mum, I’m disappointed in myself if my baby scratches herself because I neglected to cut her nails. While she was in the womb I followed dietary instructions to a T so as to protect her from things such as listeria. As a mother it is my job to protect my child and I would be devastated if something happened to her that I could have easily prevented. If the kid takes the belt off wouldn’t you just stop the car? Not drive faster.

    But for this ASSHAT to put to be so irresponsibe, to put her child at risk for not having( I don’t care which child) it was in a safety seat, is beyond ridiculous. This was not a mistake, it was irresposbible parenting period! When this story first came out, I didn’t beleive that she would do that, seriously I am not a Messy fan, you all know that but I never thought that she would put her child at risk and not have them in a saftey seat, I was wrong.

JWoww seems to be loyal to family and friends, plus I don’t think she would destroy her fiance’s family for fame! I hope Melies was worried sick about having to ‘work’ with her! I watched some ‘Jersey Shore’ shows and JWoww can physically fight like a man! Melies probably knew better than to bring up Bryan’s name to JWoww! I wonder if Roger was at the automobile show with JWoww? I wonder if whorey JoeGo was their, too? Hmmmm….

    There was also a tweet from employees at Emporio saying they were delivering a Porsche to Melissa either last summer or this fall. They are not only fake but they are fraudulent. Melissa and Joe are living in a delusion and Bravo is encouraging it by taping this joke. They took the final remaining equity out of the house and when that is gone there is no where else to turn. Melissa spends all the Bravo money before it comes in. ALso lets be honest here, Joe Gorga no longer has a job. Not that 3 flipped building in a Jersey ghetto that he owns with partners are generating enough money for lambourghinis and bentleys. Melissa also put a pic on twitter of her Masarati getting its tire changed. Now shes cocky and thinks shes believable. Go away

      My guess is Jax. The ‘takes a lot of meds’ seems more Jax’s personality than any of the other HW. Plus, Jax is very arrogant and egotistical and thinks having a ‘platform’ makes her a famous celebrity! So, her giving an autograph picture as a way to pay her manicurist seems like something she’d do!

      But then again, Melies fits most of the HW descriptions! The overdrawn account I could believe. Same with having a ‘faux’ house? Melies was known to do drugs in her younger years. And, Melies is so full of herself that she would think an autograph pic of her is worth thousands of dollars!!! I just remembered the episode where Melies babysat her niece’s during Tre’s ‘Fabulous’ (don’t know how to spell it!) wine party. Didn’t she take them all to get a pedicure / manicure? Could be Melies thinks that publicity on RHoNJ warranted free manicure’s for life?

        My mother said lying all of the time was a mental illness. I believe both Melissa and Jac not only lie all of the time, but they believe their lies.

    This little traffic stop on 287 is turning into a real can of worms for poor Missy. Remember how folks say you are judged by the company you keep? So she was driving a Bentley from Emporio. Emporio is little more than a glorified used car dealership. They hold no franchise licenses except for maybe Zenvo. And Zenvo is only building 15 (YES 15) cars. Down the road on Rt 17 (less than 2 miles away) the Jack Daniels Porsche dealer has no idea where Emporio gets its cars from. Paramus Jaguar Land Rover would be quite interested to find out where Emporio is getting its 2014 Range Rover from since they aren’t franchised and can’t sell new cars. Anyway – if the best Emporio can do for it’s Grand Opening is “stars” from a cable TV show, and some D-list ball players and rappers – that gives a good idea of how “prestigious” it is. A real luxury dealeship is something like Prestige Mercedes in Paramus or the aforementioned Jack Daniels. They both LOOK like a luxury dealership should. A dirty old shack wedged between an underpass and a Best Western is NOT a place where I would spend $150,000 on a used car with a questionable history. It figures that cozying up to a “dealer” is the only way Missy and her landscaper midget can drive cars like that.

        Biggest suprise I got was when I went on a “little detour” one day to drive by Jac’s house. How it looks on tv and in real life are pretty different. And Caface is across from the storage lot for Market Basket’s delivery truck fleet. Not a pretty site. When the show first came on I thought it was neat to have a local show and play “we’ve been there”. Now it’s more of a “give me a break” thing. There is such misrepresentation going on and it’s giving a VERY nice area the aura of a nouveau riche trailer park.

              It’s not that the house itself is so bad – it’s the location. It’s in a newer development that was built in a swampy field. The houses are pretty close to each other and the road -given thier prices. Hers is in the worst location possible – its on the corner off Ewing Ave which is a pretty busy road. The builder left a huge stand of swamp maples to try and screen the view, but so many of the trees are dead. It looks shabby.And the trampoline in the yard just adds a touch of je ne sais quoi. The whole neighborhood took a hit in the downturn. Her house was assessed at $2.645 million in 2010 – now it’s down to $2.199.

            I would hardly say Posche is “making it”. Its on the Hamburg Turnpike which is not a great area. Retail here in North Jersey is tough. Paramus (Zip 07652) is one of the top retail centers in thr world (not hyperbole). At one point we had 3 seperate Macy’s stores. Even though the stores are closed on Sunday (strictest Blue Laws in the nation) they are the top performers in their respective chains. Its tough for a single store to open in Paramus. Most single stores will try a town with a decent downtown – Ridgewood, Westwood or Englewood. But those towns have pretty expensive rents so folks will try in older, cheaper areas. Posche is in a hum drum strip with junky stores all around it. Cafface is barely drawing any traffic at all. It’s in the rear of the Market Basket (great prepared food – does a lot of local catering). Bergen County has changed and there aren’t as many idle, rich houewives as you would think based on the show. There is a LOT of wealth but it isn’t as flashy as the Housewives. It’s really hard to explain. It’s almost like cliques in high school. The comment that Kathy made about being “from Paterson” has more meaning to locals than it does to a national audience. It describes a mindset that comes from scrappy beginnings and thinks that sequins, spray tans and hair extensions are aspirational…

    I can’t stand looking at Jacqueline anymore. A of all, it’s not 1985 and you don’t need to wear skintight and spandex. B of all it looks like you were laying around your house in your faded jeans and someone said there was a photo op and you threw on some high heels and waddled out the door. gross.

    I am happy to report Max is making great progress. Sadly, he will not be coming home with his parents tomorrow. The doctor plans to remove the feeding tube tomorrow and if he continues to improve, he should come home on Tuesday. Shelli did get to hold him. That is what we all take the hardest, not being able to hold our new baby. Eli and Libby are still eager and waiting to meet their brother.

    Every night when all are asleep, I plan to come on this blog and indulge in my once “guilty pleasure”, which I now believe would be my “stress relief”. I have just been too tired.

    Thank you all again for your prayers and support.

    • Jeannie5233
      May 2, 2013 at 8:18 PM

      Little “Mighty Max” will fight mighty hard and get home as quickly and safely as he can. I know I don’t have to tell you, moma, he is where he needs to be and Max will thrive. I know darn well you and your family will more than make up for not being able to hold him just yet. That child’s feet will probably never touch the ground!

      Moma, you need to take care of yourself a bit so get some rest so you can be strong for your son, daughter-in-law, and grandbabies. Max came a bit early so even though Eli and Libby are impatient to get to hold their new baby brother, they are lucky to have you to help them get through their anticipation of the big day when the whole family will be reunited under one roof. I know that day can’t come soon enough but when it does, it will be worth it. Hugs!!

God has bigger , better plans than we can anticipate. All will be well You have reassured me so many times and lifted me up when I needed it and now I want to return the favor. We are united and praying for Max and your sweet family. We all stand with you sending positive thoughts to lift you up. Stay strong , rest when you can and take care of Moma Jackie. I know you are more than ready to hold the weight of the world on your shoulders but lay that burden down and rest here for a bit with us, your cyber family. Laugh a lot, post often and let us be your shelter. Hugs.

        I don’t think the marriage has hit the rocks – she’s been promoting her book on her TL again. I think he is just laying low because of the heat brought on by the brawl, possibly per lawyer’s orders? Who knows?!

        But I do like the analogy of Fredo fishing in a boat. . . on a lake. . . .and he is clueless as to what is about to happen.

      Another laugh, Where is Fredo?. I love to play games and I love to look at pictures. Trust me, he is only three feet away from Melissa at all times. At events when one would think Fredo was not present, while going through the professional photographers website, there he is, never more than three feet away from Melissa.

    Mel are you parking your loner Bentley and Lambo in front of your foreclosed or rented house, while wearing your borrowed clothes after attending all the free parties?
    Do your kids a favor and turn them over to Lysa to raise and in return you can have visitation. Wait – She’s already doing that! Ok, well maybe Lysa should make it legal and request Supervised Visitation since she knows how to buckle them up and you don’t. 4-27 Lysa tweeted a pic of baby Joey in car seat saying happy birthday and Mel tweets pic Joey’s Fabulous B-day dinner not party. Just what every 3yr old wants – dinner! Did the kids eat free and did the staff clap and sing to him as they presented his free mini cake or did the restaurant pick up the entire tab? Damn girl, you must be exhausted after all the effort you put into making his day so special…. Were you stopped for speeding on the way to Lysa’s house to drop them off or had you just picked them up?

            He’s been counting the days, hours, minutes and seconds for the past several months until his birthday so he can start driving. My youngest has been calling him Sheldon forever and tried to get me to watch but I thought it was another kid show. With all the “permit” excitement around here he finally said Mom just watch this one episode about Sheldon Driving. I’ve been hooked since.

Where are all the loving relatives, the grandparents? It doesn’t even have to be a pull out all the stops party! It isn’t difficult to rent a bowling alley, a space at a kids museum. It MeGo is so very anxious to brag about her big salary why can’t she splash out on her child. Teresa has a busy career and she manages!

    I watching WWHL tonight and they showed a preview of NeNe’s Sunday one on one and I will now watch it. Bottom line she said for the “newbies” to the shows they have to respect the veteran’s as they were there 1st and she sides with Teresa in that area. Listen Melissa you watched her on her show and you wanted to be on television like she was. Girl take a seat now as you are not a veteran.

    There was an article publshed yesterday by RT – an “Exclusive” of course – about this subject and really downplayed Melissa not properly restraining her child in a car. Here is what they wrote:

    “It doesn’t say that one of the kids was without a car seat/belt completely. It just says “proper” safety restraint, which could mean a few different things. In the grand scheme of New Jersey drama/news, this has the excitement equivalent of Kathy’s nose job. Yawn.”

    I don’t comment at RT, but I have to say this bothers me and I am surprised they would write this. I find it to be troubling as it gives the “impression” it’s not that big a deal and it is okay to just buckle a kid into a seat. It is a big deal. Even an eight year old (Antonia) who is only buckled in by the adult seat belt, could possibly sustain severe internal injuries or be strangled by the belt if the car were to be in an accident. That is why boosters are recommended and required. If it was Antonia in the car, she appears much smaller in build than my grandson who is the same age as her. He is still in a booster when in a car – no ands, ifs, or buts. If it was one of Melissa’s boys who are younger and much smaller, then the possibility of injury would be even greater. SMH

      Rt needs to get the facts straight..Mesy was chargedwith NOT having her child( we stil do not know which one it was, it could have been Gino, or the littlet one Joey) in a safety seat! Against the freakin law, very dangerous and so freakin irresponsible of her it’s disgusting!

      • Jeannie5233
        May 3, 2013 at 9:13 AM

        When my oldest daughter was very little, we were driving on the West Side Highway coming out of NYC on our way to Westchester and saw a horrible accident. There was a little boy laying in the middle of the highway – he had been thrown out of the car and he was dead. Back then, car seats and boosters were optional for kids. You know how certain things stay with you and you can recall it as if it happened yesterday? Well, that is one of them for me – I’ll never forget it. Also, that same daughter was in a bad accident when she first got her driver’s license and her seatbelt saved her from harm. So, buckling up kids properly, for me, is a no brainer because I have seen firsthand the consequences.

      As far as haters making Melissa money – well, she is going to need an awful lot of them to make up for all the debt she and her husband have incurred. By the way, haters are not going to be buying her book and it will tank. Ask Caroline how that works.

        How is an attorney going to take care of it when she was already found guilty? And saying you are going to pay off a judge on a blog is probably not the smartest thing to do. And this hater will not even be watching the show because of Medusa the gorgon, so how will that make her money?

      • jersey_dancer
        May 3, 2013 at 11:02 AM

        Caroline has no star appeal. It is my opinion that Don Caro is a shyster clown who is probably responsible for Jac’s illegal and mental health issues. In my opinion, Caro may have used scare tactics and bullying to intimidate Jac so that she had to stay on the show. it was pretty clear that Jac wanted out of the show after the taping of the season 4 reunion but Caro the shyster that she is, in my opinion forced Jac to stay on so that she could pawn off the cosmetic store her daughter runs and the water her son’s sell plus Don Caro is waiting for her time to shine. Melissa has star appeal and she is Hollywood that is why many people want to bring her down. Melissa just needs a good agent for her to be an A-lister.

        • Jeannie5233
          May 3, 2013 at 12:34 PM

          Melissa already has a very good agent – Celebrity Talent Promotions, They represent Donald Trump, Kelly Ripa, Carson Daly, and Ryan Seacrest, to name a few.

          She can carry a tune, but not any more than countless others. She is working on new music and has a new dance instructor/backup, hoping Johnny Wright will get her the big break. Her use of Autotune undermines any respect of her singing chops. Her stage presence is not one that a real “star” has – certainly no Beyonce, JLO, or Mariah. People are born with that – and she wasn’t. My sister’s friend knows Tommy Mottola – Mariah had the “it” factor, even as a young girl, and he made her a star. Melissa is wooden by comparison.

          Part of Melissa’s problem is she is not honest. She continues to fabricate a fantasy world, never admits to anything she has ever done wrong, and refuses to see that the house of cards she has built is beginning to tumble. That makes her credibility even more questionable.

          Melissa is not an “A” lister and never will be. She doesn’t have what it takes. And she certainly isn’t “Hollywood” – heck, being associated with Bravo, Melissa Gorga is barely “Tinseltown”.

    Teresa Giudice – second only to NeNe, she earns $650,000 with additional bonuses
    Caroline Manzo – $400,000
    Melissa Gorga $350,000
    Jacqueline Laurita – $275,00 OUCH! That’s got to hurt making less than Melissa! Maybe she shouldn’t have skipped that Reunion after all!!

    May God bless all of you young mothers who post or read this site, please know I have nothing but a greater admiration for all you do for your family. I had forgotten how hard raising young children could be. I hardly consider minding them for a few days as raising and I am certainly no stranger to babysitting and having the sleep over. Although there were additional factors involved, it took all four grandparents to manage the lives of two young children for a few days. School work had to be picked up and completed, Shelli did not want Libby to miss her dance class in the evening, nor Eli his art class. Four well educated adults had problems assisting with second grade school work. I could go on and on. It was all, of course, a labor of love for all of us and we would not want it any other way. The children are back in school today and their parents will be home later this afternoon.

    Mighty Max, I love it, is no longer on oxygen and the feeding tube has been removed. He is improving by leaps and bounds. I finally saw his little face in a picture my son texted me. He is beautiful. I would like to thank all of you for your support and prayers.

    I have the most of today to myself and I miss those grandchildren already.

      What fun it is taking care of the grandkids – but oh, how exhausting! And, yes, I find 2nd grade math challenging at times! How quick we forget!

      Take some time to catch up on your rest Moma today – you will need it when Mighty Max comes home!!! And from the sounds of it, that will be very, very soon! I am so happy you got to see his beautiful little face!

      Oh Moma! I’m so happy for you all! I bet you have a good looking rooster on your hands who will be home before you know it. I didn’t want to say it before but I can’t begin to image how it was for your daughter inlaw and son, not being able to be with their son and hold him tight. I’m so relieved for you all that he is off external supports. Mighty Max indeed!!!!!!!!
      I’d also hazard a guess that your grandchild loved being looked after by their grandparents – who needs homework at that age anyway!!!
      Much love to all! Xx

    Melissa is an airhead, I still have a hard time believing that she has a degree in teaching. Then agin you don’t necessarily have to have a 4 year degree to teach. I heard she taught one class, said it was hard and then quit and had Joes kids and never worked again. So therein lies her experience of working as a teacher. So far there are the lesbian rumors and since it’s known that her husband is very gay friendly, more or less gay, but isn’t willing to admit it because they get paid playing this perfect married couple when in reality it looks like a joke. As for the last reunion as we all saw that was filmed back in September, not even a year ago, I heard they had such a hard time finding anyone to film with her that they started rumors on purpose that she was now speaking with Caroline & Melissa, this of course if for show. I know as disgusted as Caroline was in the reunion show, but they have to be dramatic for effect. Let’s call it like it is, bullshit drama. The main thing that I doubt is going to happen is bringing Daniel back & once again started a rumor . She’s also a thief, hence the records that she stole clothing at some boutique or dept store in Fl when she was 18 years old. She was of age, so she should have been tried & put on probation and fined if it was her first offense. I think she speaks grammatically horrible just as Teresa, but as far as speaking goes, Teresa tops them in the stupidity department. Her hair care products and her books and the rest of the crap I see and no longer look at because she’s a joke. She dresses awful and looks so cheap. What is with some of these women, Jacqueline and teresa that is with the way they dress, and Melissa as well. They look like they’re wearing cheap junk.. It’s all ugly . Teresa has this fascination with her butt and all I see in certain lights is definite cellulite. Who is she trying to kid besides herself.

    ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ Stars Joe & Melissa Gorga Give Up Costly Bentley — $5K Monthly Lease ‘Was Just Too Expensive’
    Posted on Aug 6, 2014 @ 4:05AM

    While Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Joe and Melissa Gorga have been seen on the Bravo reality show driving a very expensive Bentley, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the couple recently was forced to give up the luxury automobile because they could no longer afford it.

    “The Bentley was leased by Joe and Melissa, and was strictly done for the show,” a source told RadarOnline.com. ”They felt pressure to make their lifestyle appear to be something it definitely wasn’t. The lease was just too expensive at $5,000 a month, and they had to turn it back in early.”

    As something of a silver lining, the couple “was given a free used Mercedes by a local car dealer, in exchange for shooting scenes at the dealership,” the source said. “The scene in which Joe shows Melissa their new trash truck was filmed at the Mercedes dealership.”

    Indeed, our insider also revealed that Melissa wants to make sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, green with jealousy with her fancy cars, clothes, accessories and jewelry.

    Said the source, “The sad thing is that what Melissa doesn’t recognize is that [that kind of behavior] is what got Teresa into trouble with the law!”
