New Trailer for RHONJ Season 5 — More Scripted Than Ever!

May 3, 2013

s5 81

Us Weekly has an exclusive on the release of the new trailer for RHONJ season 5 (see video below). From the looks of it, it’s a repeat of seasons 3 and 4, with the bickering between Teresa and Melissa and Teresa and Jacqueline continuing. It looks and sounds totally scripted. They are playing their parts well. Such good employees!

In the trailer, Milania, on a bus or train, in front of the entire cast (photos above, with Melissa’s reaction), climbs on a pole and says:

“I’m Melissa, I’m going on the pole!”

Quotes from the trailer include the following:

“Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before it gets better,” Melissa says in her testimonial.

“I do regret things that I’ve done,” Teresa tells her brother Joe.

While navigating an obstacle course, Teresa tells Melissa, “After this, we’ll never fight again.”

“We have to meet each other halfway if we’re ever going to make this work,” Teresa says in her testimonial.

Of course, after therapy sessions for the entire cast in Lake George, NJ, a Teresa and Melissa reunion appears to be short-lived (see the trailer at the link below for clips of their therapy). In the trailer, we see Melissa get on her knees and beg Teresa to “stop hurting us!”, and then we see Joe Gorga charge at Joe Giudice, who easily tosses him into the wall (photos below).

“We’re asking you like this, on our fricking knees, please stop hurting us!,” Melissa screams at Teresa.

Us Weekly, Bravo’s mouthpiece, reports:

When the ‘On Display’ singer is accused of cheating on her husband, Joe Gorga loses his cool. As a result, alliances begin to shift. “Teresa said you don’t know the real Melissa,” Caroline Manzo says. “You know what? Maybe I don’t.”

When Teresa calls Kathy Wakile and blames Jacqueline Laurita for getting her involved in Melissa’s alleged affair, Laurita grabs her pal’s phone. “Are you talking over me because you’re guilty because you asked me to call out Melissa and I wouldn’t do it?” she shouts at Teresa.

Melissa later gets down on her knees and pleads with Teresa to “stop hurting” her family by spreading rumors about Melissa’s past. (In another scene, one of Teresa’s three daughters climbs onto a stripper pole and proclaims, “I’m Melissa!”)

Teresa and Joe Gorga’s father’s health is in decline, putting them in an even more uncomfortable position. “You don’t want your father to die and not see his kids together,” Manzo tells her frenemy. In the most dramatic scene, Joe Gorga and Joe Giudice come to blows at a family gathering — and Melissa gets caught in the fray.

Manzo and Wakile come clean about their marriage problems.

The trailer shows Melissa dancing like a stripper (photo below); and there is a scene where Jennifer Dalton, Bravo-paid “friend of Housewife” Teresa (a Fame-whorgas’ source says Jennifer was paid $20,000 to be the go-between), tells Melissa that someone is saying she is cheating on Joe:

“Somebody said that you’ve been cheating on your husband.”

s5 81e

Yadda, yadda, yadda… it’s all Teresa’s fault! Maybe Teresa is OK with being made the villain. But the sad thing is, it upsets the fans and gets them worked up into a frenzy (this must be Bravo’s plan: the fans will want to remedy the situation by buying Teresa’s products). We need to remember it is faked and staged, edited and out of sequence (with some really bad acting), and they are all in it for the money!

“I have a theory. I think Teresa and Bravo have a deal that it’s okay to keep Teresa as the bad guy. Look, here is a whole blog (FW) against Melissa and Joe. When someone is victimized, as is plain to see with Teresa, more people come to their side. More people means more fans, more sales, etc. I’m sure Bravo gets a cut of Teresa’s profits because they helped launch her little empire. In order to keep that train rolling, there has to be drama surrounding Teresa or else no one would watch the show or buy her products. At times, it becomes really bad for Teresa — and I am a Tre fan and I feel for her — but remember, she had a huge bankruptcy to iron out and all this drama brings money to her debt. Most of the show is fake too: they shoot and re-shoot fights, tell the housewives what to bring up, etc., so it makes me wonder about some of the other drama. I believe the whole issue with Melissa’s past is true and the recent fight was real, etc., but much is set up. I may be wrong, but I wonder why Teresa would go through all of this crap just for a small chunk of change. She must be getting quite a bit more than any other housewife in the entire franchise to keep this train rolling, and she needs it. So I hope she can stay strong through all the mud that may be coming with a bad edit, but I think she knew ahead of time — she must have known that they were going to do this to her, and it’s all for the money. If I’m wrong, and Bravo really hates Teresa — and she is being set up again and she’s not getting tons of money for the pain — then, wow, poor Teresa, what a fool.” – corky21, April 4, 2013, Fame-Whorgas

    Fame Did Melissa stop dancing once someone threw money. It look like it huh?

      May 3, 2013 at 1:54 PM

      Se probably just stopped because, in her own words, she isn’t used to getting $1’s, she is used to getting $100’s.

        Wasn’t that Danielle that said that when she was on the pole and Danny and his friends were there? She said something very similar to that. Danielle doesn’t seem as distasteful to me as she once was thanks to Melissa. Melissa has brought the repulsiveness of one’s character to another level.

        • Bullie
          May 4, 2013 at 12:20 PM

          I love that you brought that up. Yes, Danielle did say that, but Melissa also said it to justify why she was a bikini bartendress. Because who wouldn’t schlep a few drinks for old dudes tipping $100’s? 🙂

        Right! And that is probably why Milania said that about Melissa when she was climbing on the pole, BECAUSE SHE SAW MELISSA DO IT, not because she (Milania) heard it from her patents. Melissa is GROSS!!

      Does it make me a bad person to get some pleasure out of the fact that Juicy throws stumproid into a wall like a rag doll? I normally complain about violence. But I’d pay big bucks to watch Joey fly into a sink or a wall any day. For betraying his parents and sister for the notoriety of a reality show. And for being a big, fat, liar just like his wife.

        May 4, 2013 at 3:20 PM

        No Gessie, at some point we all want to see a bit of retribution for Teresa and family. Right or wrong . I want to see the little whiny punk shut down. Probably orchestrated like a fight scene in a movie tho rather than the real kick in the pants JoGo deserves.

            May 4, 2013 at 10:24 PM

            You mean hypocritical as in Messy “we pay our bills” Gorga? Hypocritical as in “ours is a business bankruptcy” Bubba Jax ? or perhaps Caroline? Who is a walking advert for hypocrisy at it’s finest? Trust me Gessie ,it’s not the struggle to be moral , we all struggle. It is the person who cannot admit to the occasional lapse or even frequent mistake that we relate to. The others set my teeth on edge and make me long to go all Juicy Joe Guidice on them.So please sit down here by me in the naughty corner.

        • May 7, 2013 at 8:17 AM

        Gessie, I am in the naughty corner with you and Pittypat! I would never want to see family (or anyone) fight. But, we are only human, and I am beyond tired of watching the gorgon yell about how tough he is and how he is going to put a beat down on whatever WOMAN he is angry with this millisecond. Sometimes actions do speak louder than words, and Juicy defended himself. I would have lost it before now, and I am such a pacifist. I am VERY glad it does not appear Juicy was hurt. …in the corner now…

    On to reading the article.

    May 3, 2013 at 3:38 PM

    Look at all my typos!! Role Playing. My thumb, predictive text and touch screen makes me look like an idiot.
    Yes there was a comment or an article which says they got into it at therapy- these guys wrestle in card games remember that’s the mentality we’re dealing with. I’m sure if it was an out and out fight it would have “leaked” a whole lot better than that. But you can ‘t deny that Joey charged him by the looks of the pictures. A scuffle at therapy.

    Bravo is totally using the drama to reel us in or should that be melodrama? The whole on her knees thing was probably prefaced with a “is this what you want” because they always talk about Teresa expecting them to now down before her.
    Anyways – I’m just spitballin’

    • May 4, 2013 at 11:15 AM

      I agree. Things aren’t always what they seem. The way Bravo pieces things together for the teasers is insulting. And if they do it for the teasers, I can only imagine what they do to the final edit. All I know is what we’re watching is NOT real the majority of the time. I know I was so disappointed in JoGu and that infamous phone call. I’ve discussed it here that I believe most of it was actually how it happened. Now I’m not so sure. I’m not confident in anything I see anymore. It’s such a let down because I really used to enjoy the housewives shows.

      • May 4, 2013 at 11:24 AM

        “It is so scripted, but it’s real”? HUH? LOLOL… I’m sorry… I’m not laughing at you but it’s just funny to me how much these shows have twisted us up our perspective. I can remember my cousin being concerned about her kids being confused by cartoons and worried that they might think they were reality… that being pushed out a window, for instance, would not result in injury. These shows are like cartoons for adults.

    As funny as the Milania scene is, I’m not buying for a second that she came up with that line herself. Someone put her up to it. “Going on the pole” is not a phrase a kid at that age would have at the ready.

    • Jeannie5233
      May 3, 2013 at 5:23 PM

      I completely agree. There is NO way that line wasn’t fed to her. Totally fabricated and staged to make it look like Teresa actually taught her (a) what a “stripper” pole is and (b) what Melissa would do with it. Come on Bravo – absolutely ridiculous and insulting you expect viewers to believe this BS!

      What is worse – portraying Milania like that – any idea what kind of flak she will get for this scene?! And she will because there are alot of sick people out there. Remember the horrific Milania onslaught verbally insulting her on Bravo’s Facebook page?

      • May 3, 2013 at 8:27 PM

        teresa would never teach one of her girls to talk like that. she is a good mother

      • Rachel
        May 3, 2013 at 8:32 PM

        I found it really interesting that Milania -an 8 year old child- knows what a stripper pole is, what a stripper is and what he or she does on the pole. My 12 year old sister does not know and therefore I do not believe Milania does either, besides Tre does not look like the type of person who would fill that kind of trash to her kids (remember the table flip, she asked her kids to leave because she did not want them listening?) I also loved how she said that and coincidentally Melissa’s kids were there. Remember what was said at the reunion? Messy was moving her kids away because she did not want Tre’s kids to lie to them about their mom being a stripper? Yeah, it is all a coincidence….How stupid does Bravo think we are? Seriously, Bravo you are disgusting and should be ashamed to be fooling your viewers. I refuse to condone violence and therefore REFUSE to watch Bravo, MTV, TLC etc.

      • Aint Pittypat
        May 4, 2013 at 3:42 PM

        ITA. Jeannie. I have nothing to add. Bravo must be attempting to broaden their appeal. As distasteful and repugnant as it may be portraying a child like this is exploitation and will on some level bring on the crazies. Perverts love this sort of thing and I apologize if I offend anyone by bringing it up. Any educator or criminologist will verify that hyper sexualizing children is wrong. Bravo should be more respectful of Milania. Time for the Guidices to exit stage left!

        • ChemGeek
          May 4, 2013 at 8:15 PM

          Yes! WTH was that scene all about? There is NO need for drawing the perverts to Milania or ANY of the children on the show. The children are innocent! Why even portray a Giudice child as an enemy of Messy? The people that write these scripts are absolutely sick and twisted.

          Milania’s lines can stand on their own. Imagine the attack that Milania will receive from the Messy-lovers that have no qualms about attacking a child. Bravo is disgusting.

            I had a young man, a student in one of my classes abducted and brutally assaulted on his way home from school. He was 10 . At 21 he committed suicide . He was sexually assaulted and mutilated. Sorry if I am not amused by Bravo. I learned the hardest way possible that the devil walks among us ….in human form. I will not share the details of what happened on an ordinary spring day to an innocent child that destroyed his life, his family and a community. I will say that if Andy Cohen or Jac Laurita had those details they would never ever out a child at even the slightest risk….

    • May 3, 2013 at 5:31 PM

      Did she even make those statements together? She may have said “I’m going on the pole”, because that is what she did, the same little girl who feel into the fruit display I believe. A kid being a kid. She more than likely said the “I’m Melissa …” at some other time. The magic of Bravo.

      • Jeannie5233
        May 3, 2013 at 5:39 PM

        You’re right, moma – “the magic of Bravo” could very well be involved with this scene but either way, it is a terrible to portray that little girl like that on a pole and possibly opening up a can of sick worms.

          Trailers are misleading. I’ve lost count of the bad movies I’ve seen due to trailers. You’re right, it’s terrible that Bravo has put this little girl in the firing line again but I just think it’s innapropriately funny after seeing her in action after 4 seasons. She’s got so much personality!!!! The stripper scandal was so big that it would be impossible to shelter their kids from it which is why they all want to take a long hard look at themselves – schoolyards can be tough.

      I just re-watched the video. They hardly show any of the words with the faces they should come from. Clearly, Milania went straight up the pole, a child climbing a pole. To even suggest Milania, an eight year old, was imitating her aunt as a stripper is totally shameful on Bravo’s part. I hope Bravo sinks and I think they will.

      The video is poorly put together, too much, too soon. I thought I would have a hard time staying away from watching the RHONJ this season, Bravo just proved me wrong.

      • May 3, 2013 at 11:21 PM

        Bravo is sick, sick, sick. I’m with you Moma, a child climbing a pole which is normal. The “frankenbytes” that Bravo put into that clip are beyond disgusting. I know that Teresa is pulling her family out of debt, but they are now using her kids in a bad bad bad way. It disgusts me that she is tolerating that negative portrayal.

        • May 5, 2013 at 12:59 PM

          Hi Everyone! I have been so MIA in this blog for some time now. I just saw the “dramatic” trailer of the new season. Did you see the way Melissa looked on Milania? Like she was going to attack the poor child and tear her to shreds? I know that perverts are watching these kind of shows especially ones with children wearing skimpy outfits like Dance Moms. Knowing Bravo editing skills (which are poor) the producers probably told Milania to go on the pole and say “go on the pole and say you copying Melissa! go on and do it!” I am not watching this season. I have better things to do with my life and different goals to do. Watching them live, is not going to pay my bills, rent, car, food, gas and other necessities. I will continue to read the blogs when I have the time. Laters!

    Hold up. Kathy is pretty irrelevant to me so I almost missed the line which says she and Caroline come clean about their marriages. Didn’t Kathy deny marital problems at the reunion claim Teresa just projects her issues on to others to make herself feel better or am I blending Missy and Kathy together.

    Also are Manzo cheating rumors bought up hence Caroline’s interview answer about Big Al and cheating?

    • May 3, 2013 at 4:42 PM

      Kathy did deny marital problems, called Teresa’s mother a liar. It was the conversation that caused Kathy to state that Teresa’s father was a coward and Rosie (why is she relevant?, she’s gross) threatened to cut Teresa’s tongue out from back stage.

      Bottom line to me re: Kathy and Caroline the marriage issues are their story line to keep them relevant. YAWN

    They spliced together this tape to make it look like this season would be good. But we know it won’t. Teresa will be the bad guy, and I do think that she expects no less. Her mongoloid brother and his whore of a wife are victimized again by her diobolical plots. F.U. Bravo. Not gonna watch.

    • May 3, 2013 at 11:12 PM

      I agree gessie. They are going to demonize Teresa again this season since she has so much spare time on her hands to try and ruin her brother’s marriage (SMH). Caroline is redeeming herself as she didn’t get how big of a fanbase Teresa has and her book sales are less than stellar. Kathy … who cares. Jac, chick needs to get help on take care of her family.

      I probably will watch with a different attitude … it’s a poorly scripted soap opera.

    I don’t trust ‘previews’ of upcoming episodes/seasons! I’ve been made a fool of by watching a show expecting it to be the best episode ever! Then when I’m done watching the show, the scene that had me excited was irrelevant to what I expected! I hope that makes sense. I guess I’m cynical regarding ‘previews’ now. It’s like someone telling you so an so makes the best lasagne and when think your going to eat the best lasagne ever, it turns out the restaurant only serves sandwiches! For right now, that is the best analogy I can come up with because it’s close to dinner time and I’m debating on what to cook?
    I did like the Milania scene. Boy the look Melies gave Milania looks cold and scary! Oh, and the scene with Jennifer Dalton telling Melies rumors are going around about her cheating on her husband looked fake, practiced, phony! If that was the orginal take and the first Melies heard of rumor than Melies looks more like, ‘Oh Crap! Who told?’.

    • May 3, 2013 at 6:27 PM

      I really do not like to comment on a person’s look, however Jennifer Dalton (in that scene) looks like a walking advertisement for plastic surgery or makeup gone wrong.

I hope they were treated with kindness and respect while filming! I hope JoeyHoey didn’t scream and cry like a little sissy boy while they filmed. You know he only ‘acts out’ when the camera’s are around! I guess I should have emphasized that I hope JoeyHoey treated his parents with kindness and respect while filming! He’s such a lil’ brat when mommy and daddy are around!

        • May 3, 2013 at 11:01 PM

          I doubt that Cee_See since he told MeHo that his parents think of her as the devil. I was surprised to the Sr. Gorgas on the show and hope they are treated with respect .

    Like I said, I much rather grab my cup of coffee and go to the beginning of the article comments to the end. This afternoon it took me over three hours of course taking time out, to start dinner, run a quick errand and check on the baby. Over three very relaxing hours for me.

    The link helps me to see how many comments are being made, as in things are getting busy, I need to read the comments right now. Or there are only two new comments, I can read them after doing the laundry. It also shows all comments made on all articles. I had a bad habit of moving on and not looking back. lol

    • May 4, 2013 at 11:51 AM

      I love reading the comments but I’ve had to resist because I lose track of time and don’t get done what I need to get done. I miss it so much though and I feel so out of the loop! All of you here have such great things to say and 95% of the time I agree. I do like reading opposing views but when it comes to Teresa, etc., I see enough conflict I don’t care to debate on it any more with those that think she’s the devil and Melissa is an angel. I’d much rather see validation on my views.

      It does bother me when I see that I’ve missed reading about those sharing things in their personal lives, whether it be good news or bad. If someone needs prayers, for instance, I want them to know they have my support. Or on the other hand, I love hearing about the fun, happy and exciting happenings also. Just miss that stuff is all. 😦

    2) Juicy is driving again? Woot woot!!
    3) Jax’s face when she grabs the phone from Kathy, oh my holy hell, woman, you need to lay the eff off the injections and whatever else you’re doing to make your neck lumpy and your face waxy.
    4) Richie’s mouth open with his hilariously bad sweater/golf shirt combo. Bitch please. He’s become a parody of himself with those ridic glasses.
    5) Melissa fake-crying, no one is giving you an Oscar so sit down.
    6) If Kathy was on that plane-crash-in-the-mountains movie where they start eating the dead passengers, they would totally go for Kathy first. She’s like the fat that keeps on fatting. I do not comprehend how she is gaining weight at this furious a pace. Does she have her cannoli mix on speed dial?
    7) Juicy kicking JoeGo’s ass. Omg. Omg. Omg. Worth every dime I pay for cable!!!

    It’s sad to see the show will be using Mr. Gorga’s health to push the facade of reconciliation between Teresa, Joe and Melissa. Although the show hasn’t aired in the last few months, it doesn’t mean we haven’t followed them. Please…How many times did Sr. go into the hospital and zero connection or bonding with Tre & JoGo? No checking on or kindness shown between them during Sandy. The show starts filming and ta da – they’ll forgive just to be a family again. JoGo flat out said – it’s all for the camera’s and then made peace. I guess they believe if they push it far enough down our throats eventually we’ll swallow it, but my gag reflex is working perfectly because it keeps coming back up.

    Honestly, it’s a great idea especially with Sr.’s health issues. But if that was truly the case it wouldn’t be done in front of the cameras only. I believe there is nothing Teresa wouldn’t do for her parents and if pretending to make up is the answer – so be it. However, the Sr. Gorga’s aren’t fools and know what Melissa and Joe have done. I dare not say they’ve chosen a side, but they clearly acknowledge the issues and by Teresa’s off camera actions have accepted the relationships for what they are – broken. If Tre’s Dad asked her to fix it – Tre would do anything including swallowing her pride to try and do it but that isn’t what happened during the break. You can’t will everyone to get along and want to be a family. All must want it – it can’t be done alone. JoGo has issues with his father that can only be solved between them and until that happens he can’t begin to repair his relationship with Juicy. Until they resolve their problems, he can’t begin to repair his issues with his sister and so on and so on. It’s not just one problem or person that created this mess.

    I’m curious as to why the Sr. Gorga’s are allowing to be filmed again? Is this a last ditch attempt by the “family” to bail out Melissa and Joe?

Its the same crap over and over again! Tre is evil, Joe cheats on Tre, Mel is a stripper, Caro is miss know it all, Jac’s problem with Nick. Honestly, Bravo let it goooo! Give us something new, fresh, funny! Seriously, if Tre does not go off for them making/editing to make it seem that Milania said that then I will know that Tre has a deal with Bravo like the commented piece on the article said. What kind of show would edit a piece to make it seem like an 8 year old said that?!?! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again I am DONE with Bravo. Why can’t they make a show about women uplifting women? We are supposed to help each other out not tear each other up! We are all daughters, sisters, mothers, wives, friends c’mon we need to help each other!!!

    I really think a smart producer somewhere could blow bravo out of the water by filming real people of NewJersey revealing these moron sleeze bag’s real life. The Lauritas deserve at least that for what they have done and continue to do illegally on multi-levels. To use their children for a storyline – expose their shell companies, the real truth about blk and how it doesn’t do crap – much less cure autism. Federal Fraud. The Manzo crooks and their shady connections and backroom deals. And the Gorgas and how truely disgusting these creeps really are. Teresa needs to save her brand – get her own show and leave all this family drama off camera. It isn’t helping her and I really want her to succeed without hurting all she has worked for. To constantly be the bad guy does turn off new viewers and honestly creeps out some loyal viewers. She is not using good sense to protect her future. Ugh – so tired of Bravo and their uncreative, small minded, predictably sorry joke of a show. I get the feeling Bravo is gonna make a deal with JohnnyTheGreek to save this season and some legal hiccups – and I FEAR he and his wife are gonna buy anything Bravo sells them. If they could only see how much power they could have independent of Bravo. Their restaraunt or her salon would be the perfect place to film real people and their real experiences with these losers – exposing real truths about their scuzzy lives. I would watch that – not Bravo – in a heartbeat.

    • May 4, 2013 at 1:32 PM

      I agree with much of what you say. Unfortunately, JTG (JohnnyTheGreek) doesn’t really have power without backing from a network wanting to work with them. I agree that it is something that may be interesting to watch although there is already Jerseylicious which takes place in a salon(s) in NJ. Then again, all these networks copy cat off each other… how many storage unit shows are there… towing shows… tattoo shops… etc. etc. For a while there, it seemed when one network came out with a premise for a show, all others followed right behind.

      What bugs me so much is they revealed all the bad things about the Guidices, but when there’s even worse done by the others, it’s like it doesn’t exist. Soooo frustrating. I think of the many out there that don’t bother reading blogs, etc. that are buying everything Bravo sells them. How else would it be possible for the Lauritas, MeJoGo, Wakiles and Manzos to have the fans they do have? The Guidices wouldn’t seem as bad as they do to some people if the truth be known. I still can’t believe it when I read comments from people telling Melissa how bad they feel for her to have to put up with Teresa and her crap. I just don’t get it. Though I have to say, even without reading the blogs it’s hard to believe anyone would feel that way. Just the fact that they came on the show and then the way the first episode went down should show them what type of people they are. I don’t get it at all… *shakes head*

        • May 5, 2013 at 12:40 PM

          Faux has a new story about a former fan of the Marco sisters, who used to run one of their fan accounts. The following is an excerpt and the link:

          Faux: So tell me about your experience running the Marco Sisters’ page. Was it everything you thought it would be?

          Jane: At first it was great. I would get recognition from Melissa and her sisters. I kept it positive. I worked with their niece who ran some of the other accounts. It was loads of fun. Kim told me that she and Lysa expected to be on the show by next season. They told me they would be taking Teresa and Kathy’s place. So we should show our support by tweeting about them too.


          This former fan is the same one who spilled the tea on the Marco sisters a year ago, in April 2012. The following is an excerpt and the link to the April 25, 2012 story here at FW:

          I am sorry to say that I will be closing down this [Twitter] account very shortly. After some time, I’ve become aware of Melissa Gorga’s double persona. She has proved to be a narcissist and has showed an extremely passive aggressive attitude. I also found Joe Gorga’s actions in the premiere episode [of season 4] to be extremely disturbing. This family will stop at nothing to bring Teresa down. Joe Gorga is a vile man who will stop at nothing to bring his sister down. Teresa has showed us viewers that she can rise above the pettiness.

          Melissa came on the show with the intent to hurt, and that’s something I can no longer support. Her makeup artist should be reprimanded for talking ill of her sister-in-law.

          Melissa Gorga, you came on the show to air out your dirty family laundry and did not care who got hurt on your path to “fame.” You’re a lousy singer. Your husband is a famewhore; he just wants to be made into a 6th housewife!

          I am tweeting to let you all know that Melissa and Joe Gorga are not innocent. They try to portray themselves as such, but it is an ACT! Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga are phonies. They want America to believe they are victims when in reality they are SCUM.

          This season [season 4] will put more things into perspective for all you fans of the Gorgas! Team Teresa! Teresa Giudice, I am so sorry if I ever wrote anything negative about you. I see the truth now! You’re amazing, as a mother, sister, daughter, friend, etc. Don’t ever let anybody tell you otherwise! Shine on!

          Caroline controls Jacqueline. It’s sick!

          I once tweeted Jacqueline something in defense of Teresa, and I was immediately DM’ed by the Marco sisters asking to delete my tweets because Jac was their friend. They never once asked me to delete anything negative I wrote about Teresa!

          RHWGOSSIP, give it a rest, and take your head out of the Gorga’s ass! We see the truth! RHWGOSSIP, you would love the world to believe that everyone HATES Teresa, but the truth I see is that she clearly has a bigger fan-base than you can fathom!

          Yes, I did lie about @bino989 sending me DMs. I’m sorry. I was told that you and that blogger site were harassing the Marco sisters! I was used as a shield to protect them!

          Lysa Simpson, why don’t you tell everyone how you had no problem letting me speak in defense of you guys and how you had no problem if I threw Teresa under the bus. Lysa believes that Bino and AlllAboutTRH are the ones who were starting the most mess for them.

          I am not proud of my actions. I was just merely a fan in the beginning trying to protect those I was a fan of. I’m glad I realized what a mistake that was.

          Note: MarcoSistersFan is now ExMarcoSistersFan on Twitter.

    Okay. I am a long time lurker and a first time poster. I just have to ask if anyone else thinks that at about the 27 second mark on the season trailer video, Jackhole-in and Creeper Chris are discussing CJ masturbating. When Chris says he “found himself” when he was about CJ’s age and then Wacky Jacky says in her talking head that she going to take all of the socks out of his room. (For those not in the know, guys sometimes use a sock to rub one out.) Maybe I am totally off base here, but if Jackal-in is discussing such a potentially embarrassing thing about her son on national TV, she has sunk to a new low. Even for her. Anything for a storyline, eh, Jax?

    I am sorry if my post is too graphic or offends anyone. I just had to ask if anyone had the same interpretation that I did. Or am I way off base here? I hope for CJ’s sake that I am.

        It feels good to be out of lurker mode. It isn’t often that I feel I have anything to contribute on this site because y’all express most every thought and feeling I have about the train wreck that is Bravo TV. You guys keep me LOL with your observations and biting commentary.

        As much as it appalls me that the Loseritas were discussing their son masturbating, it is good to know that it wasn’t just me having a dirty mind to interpret it that way.

        Oh, I also thought that it was wildly inappropriate for Joey Marco, er, Gorga to ask Joseph Wakile if he has “dipped his stick yet”, while holding a pool cue as an obvious phallic symbol. What is wrong with that “man”?

        • May 4, 2013 at 5:56 PM

          Post more often Ann! Joey is just disgusting! It’s no wonder why Melissa cringes when he tries to touch her.

        • May 4, 2013 at 11:22 PM

          I watched the trailer, yet again. I am not so certain Chris said that. I have noticed that whenever Bravo captions the words and does not show the person saying it, they are manipulating the situation. I am no fan of the Laurita’s and I know most who post here know that.

          I am shaking my head in disgust that Bravo would stoop so low, setting up innocent children, one as a stripper, the other finding his manhood. I do not think emailing Bravo would help change the agenda Bravo has in mind. I do think a few letter to news editors might do the trick.

          Hi Ann – Welcome to you and your first post definitely contributes to the site – you had the guts to state what alot of us saw but wouldn’t comment on. I really hope you continue 🙂

      Welcome Ann. I caught the same thing. There is no doubt in my mind this season will be the most vile and disgusting season yet.

      While searching “Teresa Giudice” this morning, I noticed an article that Radar was running about Gia posting “LMFAO” and Teresa reprimanding her about it. I also saw Perez Hilton was spewing something a few days ago about Joe Guidice having an affair. The Bravo spin machine has been turned on full blast.

    • May 4, 2013 at 3:01 PM

      I was left with the same impression by their “conversation”. Can’t they leave at least one of their children off their exploitation train? Ashley, then Nick and now CJ – parents are supposed to protect their children not make money off of them.

I hope when Jaz is old her boys allow her to be filmed vegetating in a facility for long term alcoholics . Maybe Jax will be drooling and sitting in a puddle of excrement . She has no respect for her children so why would they respect hers? Get ready for your close up Mama Elsa er-uhm Jacs . The Real HW of NJ , Where are They Now 2035.

      I thought it was disgusting, inappropriate, and horrifying. Bravo puts in their promo, a discussion of a little boy masturbating & a little girl on a stripper pole. Who would do that to children? I suppose we should be relieved that she isn’t discussing her autisticson (one word) masturbating. Way to go Jacqueline. Now you have publicly humiliated all three of your children on national television. You should be in a f***ing looney bin. You are sick in the head, very, very sick. And you husband is right there along side of you. Pigs.

          ITA. It is creepy to put a little girl on a stripper pole and to talk about a child masterbating. Is that Jacaloon’s story line to distract from her REAL problem (ahem, stealing from Susan Koman)? So now she has another child as a story line? Jeez, Jacaloon will stop at nothing and Andusky (love that nickname) is a creepster for letting it go there. ICK!

      Ann, it’s either a case of ‘great minds trod like paths,’ or we’re just a couple of twisted sisters. Whichever it is, we’re it together because your interpretation of that snippet is exactly what I got out of it too. And I thought Jax’s exploitation of Ashley was despicable. This is a new low – an unspeakably low act inasmuch as we can pretty much predict the mockery they have guaranteed their son will be subjected to by his peers once the scene airs and we are, unfortunately, proven right.

        I didn’t get what she was saying either. how could a mother say something like that on national tv. was she trying to be funny??? she has hit a new low. I feel so bad for her kids. Bravo has also hit the bottom with allowing something so personal, about children, to be aired.

  25. May 4, 2013 at 1:14 PM

    I don’t know if anyone’s mentioned it but I saw the Star in the grocery store line and on the cover a headline saying JoGu is cheating on Teresa again and they have PROOF. I didn’t get a chance to read the article but I got a quick glimpse at the pics of JoGu with “other women.” Like I said it was only a QUICK glimpse… I saw two pics but I can’t be sure there weren’t more. The ones I did see were of Joe and it looked like he was sitting across a table, or something, with an unknown woman in each. Really? We have no idea who these women actually are and the pics looked totally benign although I didn’t get that good a look at them. But it wasn’t like one was sitting on his lap or anything cozy like that at all! For all we know they could have been taken at a party and Teresa could have been present! Let’s face it… we know the lengths these media sources go to to make it look like JoGu is a horrible, cheating husband. They would do anything to make him look guilty. I’m sick of it… truly sick of it.

    I never thought I’d say this, but I really don’t know if I want to watch NJ this year. I have watched every franchise every season and after discovering how much we’re being misled I still watch but with a different outlook. I do still believe that there is an underlying truth in much of what we see, but the RHs amp it up to add over the top drama… some of it is the ladies over reacting purposely and some of it is manipulation from Bravo in the editing, etc. and a big part of it is the producers working the women… either by coaxing them in a direction or by feeding a RH info of something done or said by another RH that they know will create backlash. The same is done in their THs. Some of the crazy and/or nasty things they say in their THs is because a producer is provoking them in some way. Saying all this, I still don’t believe they are scripted in the true sense of the word. “Manipulated” is a more accurate description IMO.

    I watched the searching for Big Foot show that was on recently. One episode was a sit down with the “hunters” talking about their experiences. They showed one clip of an image the hunters caught through the night vision apparatus that showed a large, ominous figure in the woods. The show cut off at that point as if they actually caught something unknown and unexplainable. The hunters were really upset by this. The reason being was they did determine that it was actually a head-on image of a horse. They spoke about how wrong it was because it’s misleading and such things hurt their credibility which is obviously questioned by many in the first place. They were adamant that they wouldn’t be associated with a show that used those practices if it happened again. It was soooo refreshing to see and hear that. Too bad they all don’t have that standard.

    Anyway, I guess this just proves that there are few people that have exciting enough lives to keep people entertained… at least among those that are willing to share them with the world. Makes me feel a bit better about my mundane life… lol

      Saw the article in Star – the “proof” they have is ONE picture which is blurry and supposedly taken April 22 at some club in NYC. The other picture is recycled from the past.

      Same old story – Jacqueline’s mouthpiece, Tom Murro, is just trying to stir things up for the Giudices’ being that she has been under a microscope lately. Clearly she still hates Teresa and will do anything to continue to deflect her own issues onto Teresa. I would think by now Murro would know most people are onto him and know what he is trying to do – another worthless famewhore.

    I have been cheated out of an inheritance by one brother, my other brother sold me a boat and by the time I got it from West Palm Beach to Miami it sank. Plus the title was illegal. And he wouldn’t give me my money back. My Dad sold all my Mom’s jewelery when she died young, some of which was mine because we traded, and then told me if i wanted the silver I would have to buy it from him. He forged my name on student loans and never told me, so the government is suing me for $30,000. The original loan was for five thousand dollars. Had I known about it, I would have paid it off immediately. The government admits it is a forgery and so does my father, but they know he has no money so they are going after me. What is my point? I’ve been hurt by my flawed family, some would say it was unforgivable. I can forgive them because I don’t want to carry around resentments which might make me ill. I’ve had therapy. I love them. Would I ever forgive my brother if he went on national t.v. and called me garbage? Claimed that it was my fault that my parents aren’t thrilled with his choice of a wife? Lied about me incessantly and disparaged my children? Never. Never, never, never would I speak to Joey again if I were Teresa. The difference is if somebody called me garbage, my brother would beat the shit out of that person. He has never called me a bad name in my life. At the end of the day, both of my brothers would never disrespect me in public or even in private. I hate Joey and Melissa. I know hate is a strong word, but they deserve it. He truly is the worst brother in the world, as Teresa said. I don’t know why I got so personal, but I guess it is because I really do believe that what Joey has done is unforgivable. Sitting there at a reunion show where everybody is attacking his sister and saying nothing. Not a , “Hey you guys that is my sister, take it down a notch.” Nothing. No wonder Juicy wants to beat the shit out of him. He is a horrible evil little man.

      gessie –

      You and I have discussed this before and I am completely in alignment with you. I think Joe Gorga, the little piglet, is a horrendous human being. It is one thing for your sibling to continually malign and betray you throughout the years. Sometimes you put up with it just to keep peace in the family and out of respect for your parent(s)’ wishes. But when that same sibling betrays and abuses your elderly parent(s), that, for me, is the point of no return. I will never, ever forgive my sister for what she did to my mother. As I have said, she has been cut out of the family – good riddance.

      Not only did that POS Gorga sit at the Reunion and NOT defend his sister (let’s not forget he also allowed his mad dog cousin physically threaten Teresa too – another animal), he also sat there MUTE when Kathy went after his mother and father – on television. No defense whatsoever! That, to me, is unforgiveable. How Teresa would allow that is beyond comprehension to me. Of all the “characters” on the show, he is, by leaps and bounds, the worst – even worse than his wife. I definitely get the feeling Melissa would never turn on her own family. This animal has, for his own selfish reasons and to gain his one minute of fame. That was more of a priority than FAMILY. Disgusting.

      You are right – the word “hate” is a strong word and I completely understand why you feel the way you do. I don’t “hate” Joe Gorga – I don’t know him well enough and he isn’t significant to even be on my radar but I do dislike him immensely and those like him. I only “hate” one person in my life and that would be my sister – I struggle with that every day but cutting her out of my mother’s life was the best decision I have ever made and I don’t regret it one bit. My mother lived in fear and with that decision, now has been able to live the last two years in relative peace and serenity – as it should be. She deserves nothing less than that.

      gessie – I always could tell you were a strong person- now I know why – because you have to be. I am glad you shared that part of yourself. Thank you.

    This might be a little controversial, but I’m wondering if anyone else thinks Caroline’s “advice” to Teresa that “You don’t want your father to die and not see his kids together” is kind of stupid?

    I mean, family feuds are nothing new to Tre’s father; he’s estranged from HIS sister (Kathy’s mother) and I believe Teresa has said that he told her that everything can be fine when you’re growing up and you are a family, but when you get married “new blood” comes in (Melissa, Kathy’s father — who I think was the one Tre and Joe’s father really had the dispute with) and it changes people.

    I think Tre misses the old Little Joey and it’s tempting for her to try to find a way to get along because, when Messy’s not influencing him, it looks like they really could have a good relationship.

    But Little Joey is SO simpleminded and it’s clear that Messy really manipulates him. As long he’s in the sewer with his wife, it’s difficult to see Little Joe making any of the changes to his behavior and character that are needed. In light of the above, I’m really not surprised that Juicy is inclined to think Tre’s just beating her head against a brick wall and she should just throw in the towel, but I suppose as long as she thinks there’s even a small chance of helping her brother, she’ll keep trying.

    Hello my friends, hope everyone is doing great !! I watch the trailer and let me tell you, I can’t believe they are doing it again, something is very wrong if people is not so much watching, but believing what goes on in this show, Unbelievable. Teresa as to be a very sick individual to have so much to do, and also dedicate time to bring her sister in law down, dontcha all think, i mean that takes time, especially if all is not true???!!! the cheating, the stripping, Melissa is a saint, and she’s married to an angel from God !! I don’t understand how they expect us to believe that Teresa, by herself, is trying to destroy poor, naive, innocent Melissa, right?? How is it that people think this is real, I am sorry to say it again, but it blows my mind!!!

    I am sorry Teresa, but if you are not vindicated this season, I will no longer support you, I don’t believe you are going to stay silent again, especially if they are trying to portrait Milania in that bad light and you by association, because where else would she be hearing about this stuff??!! Thats what they want us to think, and if you don’t say anything when that episode airs, and it turns out that the editing is what it seems in the trailer, you will have to say something in your defense, and not only blame it on the editing, I get it that you are a good employe and that you are bound by a contract to do all they ask of you??!! Well I am sorry to say I will not continue to be a fan, because it means you are not a victim but a player making a living, but theres always a line that we need don’t cross to keep our dignity. And believe me this not easy for me to realise, since I am a BIG FAN

    I see Melissa, and Teresa for sure & Kathy are all plastic surgeried up. Melissa had another nose job, that’s more than apparent, lightened her hair, looks like the same money grubber as usual, even though they’re broke as hell and she can’t sing worth a shit. Teresa will always be the same asshole as usual, I can already see where this is leading and they’re going to gang up on Melissa even though her husband is Gay and she gets paid to do the show and play as if they have an actual marriage. The gay vibe was always strong on Joe Gorga since he began the show. YOu can tell by the way he acts towards men. Melissa looks so fake now, ugh! Teresa was never attractive in my opinion with that stupid forehead of hers, can u say planet of the apes, Caroline may or may not have things done., I’ve seen her on talk shows and she looks natural. Kathy nose job, but that was stated on last years reunion and Rosie looks like she may have lost some weight .. it looks like it’s going to be grosser than what it was before and I really doubt from this clip that I even want to see it because it looks fake as hell and the cameras and scripts are ready for them One thing I can tell about is when people have no class and they’re trash. Melissa definitely has that vibe along with her sisters and that one whiney voiced idiot brother in law that talks all naisaly.. he’s gross. get him off the show and all those ugly tatts off melissas sisters. Yuck. They’re just there to get pay offs and get perks from the stupid show. Melissa is a crap singer she’ll do lounge shows but it’s been 3 years now and usually if someone doesn’t see a good singer within 6 months to a year, t hey’re not going anywhere with their music and they usually start much younger. She’s older in her 30’s and I see Gia is an idiot as well as Melania acting like jerks that have no self control because Teresa and Joe are crap parents. I can’t stand Jacqueline because she’s so immature. I thought Ashley was smart enough to move away to CA and get the hell away from her psycho mother. They are all making me sick at this point. So Rich and Kathy have no money, I can see that by the house they don’t have, and I don’t believe they have millions either. Why did Kathy wait to get a nose job if that had that kind of money? Hello they’re broke .. I believe it. they’re all broke and trying to look like they have cash..what a joke ..goodbye rhonj .. I coudln’t stand the shitty drama and idiot behavior of immature women with kids last season and I won’t watch this year because it’s all fake garbage anyway. They’re all assholes..I’m beginning to think that Christopher manzo is gay because he’s well into his 20’s and hasn’t dated a girl yet ever. So there’s something wrong there. I don’t even think Albie is that good looking any longer and he definitely has commitment issues because he’s about to knock on 30 not too long from now and has no girlfriend in site. Mama’s boys.. and you can see they’re afraid their parents will cut them off if they don’t listen to every word they say, so I wouldn’t read Carolines book, Melissas joke of a fake marriage to a gay man book , teresas joke cook books, waste of time and money on anything she sells. I hate her.. and Jacqueline is lucky she has chris because she’s just stupid. I feel sorry for her kids because all she does is get drunk, pop xanax, act like an immature moron and I don’t understand what her husband sees in her. She’s a joke.. Case closed. They’re all losers.
