Joe Gorga’s Black Spray-on-Hair-in-a-Can Gets Rubbed Off When Joe Giudice Kicks His Ass
“I watched the preview for next week’s episode. I believe I know what the mysterious ‘black tar’ substance was that everyone had on them after the fight. Once Joey Marco breaks away from the fight, you see Melissa RUN, not walk, but RUN over to him with his little hat and put it on his head. During the worst part of the fight, this is how she reacts? That’s because that mysterious ‘black tar’ is probably the black shoe polish Joey Marco used to cover up the bald spots on his head.” – Anoneemouse, July 17, 2013 at 8:35 AM, FameWhorgas
Now we know why Poison Joe took off his shirt after the fight – it was covered with black spray-on hair paint from a can (GLH Spray on Hair for covering his bald spots) that was rubbed off when Juicy Joe kicked his ass (rule of thumb: men who have spray-on-hair should not wear white).
“The First Look has me on the floor. Not only is the behavior disgusting, but the talk of the ‘black stuff’ is hilarious. My assumptions have been confirmed: Joe Gorga uses the spray on hair for bald spots… obviously in black.” – STLHousewife, July 16, 2013 at 9:52 PM, FameWhorgas
In the First Look that aired on July 16, 2013 (video above), there is something like black tar all over everyone after the fight.
After Rosie pulls Poison Joe from the death grip he has on Juicy Joe’s testicles (in a fight that Poison started by charging at Juicy), Melissa runs like a bat out of hell to pick up his ball cap and put it back on his head (just after this, Joe pushes her when she tries to get him to stop barking at Juicy). You can see Melissa looking Poison over, checking for the black hair paint. Then after Teresa and Juicy leave, she attempts to pull up Poison’s shirt, as if to encourage him to take it off (but he jerks away from her and slams something to the ground).
It’s funny because one of Melissa’s fans even asked her on Twitter why she ran his hat over to him so fast:
@melissagorga Theresa is truly a selfish delirious person….I have one question….Why you run to put Joey’s cap on very fast????? – Kelly Martin (@KellyDaizeekel), July 17, 2013
Melissa, acting innocent and trying to cover up the obvious, that it’s Joe’s hair paint all over everyone, says it’s shoe polish and tries to get Poison to leave the area:
Melissa: This fucking black shoe polish all over.
Poison: What the fuck is this shit? (as if he doesn’t know!)
Melissa: I don’t know.
Melissa TH: Everyone was a mess. Shirts were dirty. Everyone was covered in black shit.
When Juicy and Teresa return to their room, this is what Juicy has to say about the “black shit”:
Juicy: What is this black shit?
Teresa: Maybe her makeup?
Juicy: What the fuck, she wears that much makeup?
Juicy: What the fuck is this shit?
Teresa asks Juicy (as he’s washing his arms): Why do you have black all over you?!
Juicy: I have no idea.
Richie asks, “What the fuck is all this black tar?” Kathy says, “I have no idea.”
“The majority of it was on the underside of Juicy’s wrists and forearms where he had a hold on Joey’s head as shown when Juicy and Tre are walking upstairs to the room. IMO they can’t deny much because there it is in Black and, well, Black.” – Calypso, July 17, 2013 at 5:28 PM, FameWhorgas
It looks like there may be black smudges on Poison’s hat and on Richie’s left arm. Plus the black stuff is all over Juicy’s chin, under Melissa’s left arm pit, and could possibly be what’s on top of the security guard’s head – finger smears of hair paint.
“I was wondering what that black stuff that was on the security guy’s head when they were able to pull the Joe’s apart. It would explain why he wears hats all the time on TV. I bet he does spray his hair before he does his talking heads.” – Stefanie, July 17, 2013 at 5:07 PM, FameWhorgas
Knowing that he was going to be exposed on camera for using spray-on-hair, Joe came clean in a TH interview (they tape the TH interviews as the show is being edited, usually a couple months before the season premiere) and just before the season 5 premiere on June 2, 2013, he ditched the hair-in-a-can and shaved his head instead:
“You know, I take a little hair spray, black hair spray, and I spray my hair with that. It makes it look a little thicker! So everyone was like, ‘What the fuck is the black stuff?!’ I don’t know what the black stuff is (laughing).” – Joe Gorga TH, Season 5 Episode 8
Poison Joe feigned stupidity (which isn’t a stretch, by any means) at the dinner table after the fight in episode 8 when Richie asked again:
“What the fuck is this here (lifting his arm, showing black stuff on cuffs)?
Joe chuckled, saying:
“I got it all over me! I don’t know what the hell it is!”
Melissa screamed at Teresa for not helping her brother, calling her a disgusting pig, more than once. Back in their room, Teresa told Juicy:
“I want to punch Melissa in the fucking face. It’s like, I had to come in there and break it apart, thank you very much! Why didn’t she get her husband off of you?! Why?! (When Poison charged Juicy and the other four joined in, Teresa ran from the room, like a normal women, to get help from security. Warning: Ladies, never jump in and try to breakup a fight between men!)
Best line of the season so far: when, with everyone covered in “black shit,” Melissa says to Poison:
“We’re white trash now! You understand that?!”
