Season 5 Finale: The Phone Call from Melissa Gorga’s Past About Her Cheating on Joe Was Taped in December 2012 But Has Not Yet Aired – Why?

August 26, 2013

s5 200 h
Recently, the Gorgas taped testimonials (THs) which plant the seed that Teresa is behind the cheating rumors (Joe Gorga comes right out and says so). It appears Bravo is re-working the ending to season 5 – an ending that will paint Teresa as the villain and Melissa as the victim, AGAIN.

Why has Bravo gone back to the editing room to alter how the season ends? Is it because of the federal indictment on money fraud handled down to the Giudices on July 29, 2013? Are they expecting Teresa to be unavailable because she may be “going away” for a while, or are they planning on a spinoff for Teresa and her life without Joe because he may be “going away?” Is it because ratings for the season are down and they think painting Teresa as the villain is what viewers want to see?

Footage from February and March 2013 – the Lake George retreat and Arizona spa retreat – shows the cast reconciling and agreeing to move forward, putting the cheating rumors behind them. Teresa had no idea when taping the scenes that Bravo would air the phone call she took from “Mike” on December 3, 2012 at the holiday Posche Fashion out of sequence, using it to implicate her in spreading the cheating rumors AFTER the Gorgas and Giudices had cleared the air.

The phone call was taken out of sequence for a reason. I believe this call, taken out of sequence, will be used near the season’s end to deflect attention off the cheating rumors and onto Teresa for being behind them. My suspicion is heightened when listening to the recently taped testimonials of Melissa and Joe Gorga which were included in the last two episodes (Melissa with her new blond hair and low-cut black top; Joe with his shaved head, white cap and blue polo shirt with white collar).

In the last two episodes, Teresa stated that she feels vindicated based on the discussion with Penny and Melissa at the Milania launch party on February 18, 2013. According to Teresa in episode 13, the rumors are behind them now, so the phone call to “Mike” must have been addressed at some point on camera, probably in Lake George on February 11, 2013 (we haven’t seen the footage and probably never will) since Joe said to Dr. V at the retreat: “My sister’s involved with this rumor saying my wife cheated on me.” And Teresa responded by asking Melissa in front of Joe and Dr. V: “Don’t you want to know what’s being said about you?”, which is basically what she was asked when she took the phone call from Mike (a source tells FW that Penny asked Teresa, “Are you sure you want to hear it, because it’s bad?” and Teresa said, “Yes, I want to hear what he had to say”).

The cheating rumors were first recorded on camera on December 3, 2012, and Life & Style picked up the story from the blogs when the identity of Bryan “Bulldog” Bowen, the subject of the call, was revealed at FW on January 16, 2013. When Teresa taped these scenes and THs, she had no idea that the phone call to “Mike” on December 3, 2012 was going to be taken out of sequence.

  • Penny places call and Teresa agrees to talk to “Mike” from Melissa’s past, December 3, 2012
  • The identity of Bryan “Bulldog” Bowen, the subject of the phone call, revealed at FW, January 16, 2013
  • Joe and Melissa address rumors with Teresa at the Lake George retreat, February 10-12, 2013
  • Joe and Melissa address rumors with Jan and Penny at the Milania launch party, February 18, 2013
  • Penny meets with Joe and Melissa Gorga, February 28, 2013
  • Cast reconciles at Spa retreat in Arizona, March 16-18, 2013
  • Joe Gorga and Chris and Jacqueline Laurita assault Penny’s husband, John Karagiorgis, March 30, 2013

The holiday PFS was taped at the beginning of the season, when the families were estranged because of the season 4 reunion – the only Housewife present at the event was Teresa since the others weren’t speaking to her – at the reunion, which was taped just two months earlier, they all implied Joe Giudice was a cheater, and Melissa told Teresa she was done with her and so were her kids, so Teresa definitely would have been in the mindset to take a phone call from someone from Melissa’s past.

The holiday PFS taped on December 3, 2012 either will be cut from the season or it will be shown out of sequence. If it isn’t cut, it will appear that the Gorgas, Wakiles, Lauritas and Manzos refused to attend the event because of the rumors Kim D and Penny were spreading about Melissa; and Teresa, the only Housewife present at the event, will be portrayed as betraying her brother and sister-in-law by continuing to associate herself with Kim D and Penny, even though she knows they are behind the cheating rumors. Plus, it is at the holiday PFS that sources say Teresa asked Penny about Al Manzo cheating.

Most likely producers will tie in the phone call with Mike on December 3, 2012 to the fight at the grand opening of Posche 2 on March 30, 2013, where sources says John Karagiorgis, Penny Drossos’ husband, told Joe Gorga to ask his sister who is behind the cheating rumors.

With all this being said, Teresa must know by now what Bravo plans for the season’s ending. She was blindsided in seasons 3 and 4, and the emotions of all the cast members were real, but not this time around (sources were leaking information and bloggers were covering the events in real time as they were being taped for season 5). Much of what was taped for season 5 is being re-edited and re-dubbed for dramatic purposes, which means we can ignore the tabloid stories about the sister-in-laws feuding – they may not like each other, but they seem to have come to terms and made peace with the situation. The cousins are spending time together, and that’s probably as good as it gets as long as their parents choose reality TV fame over family.

The following are FW blogs, published before the season 5 premiere, about the holiday PFS, the phone call from “Mike”, the united front presented at the Milania launch party, Penny’s meeting with the Gorgas after the launch party, and Joe Gorga’s assault on Penny’s husband, John.

The following are excerpts from Teresa’s and Melissa’s Bravo blogs for episode 13.

In Teresa’s Bravo blog for episode 13, she said she has no idea why her brother and Melissa “keep lying about her” and why they “keep believing the worst about her,” plus she explained that she meant no harm by her karma comment when talking to Jacqueline. In Melissa’s Bravo blog she explained that she had to go to the emergency room in Arizona and spent the night in the hospital on morphine because of pain resulting from a virus. She added that there will be some interesting revelations on the next episode and said “as the trip continues, you’ll see everyone really open up – it turned out to be an amazing trip for all us.”

“T and I were in a better place at that time but we still had a few things we still needed to work out. I asked T 2ce about the Karma comment. They didn’t air it. I wasn’t sure what she meant at that time so I had to ask her. To be continued… Nicholas is the best Karma I ever got. I honestly feel he is truly a blessing. :0) I know my husband @chris_laurita agrees. XO” – Jacqueline Laurita, August 25, 2013, Twitter

Teresa Explains the Karma Comment
By Teresa Giudice
August 26, 2013

Teresa was not referring to Jacqueline’s son when she was talking about karma.

How funny was Gia trying to throw away my sparkly bikini? She’s so protective of me. All my girls are. Did you see Audriana chasing Gia to get it back? So cute!

I missed them when we went to Arizona, but I was happy for the chance to hang out with my family and friends again. It’s been a long, hard road, but I’m really hopeful that we can stay in a good place.

I was really happy after the Milania Hair Care party, because I felt like Penny had put the rumors about me being involved in any Melissa rumors to rest once and for all. Apparently, though, she didn’t. I guess no one could. My brother and Melissa are going to believe whatever they want to believe – even if dead people are telling them! The medium even tells them that there are other people who will meddle in your life and you have to stay strong as a family, just like Dr. V was saying. And still, they don’t believe it. How many people can tell them the same thing? At this point, Jesus himself could come down from Heaven and tell them I have never tried to “bring them down,” and they wouldn’t believe it because they are so desperate to hold on to their hate and anger.

It makes me so sad since he is my brother and they know the truth about me. They know that by constantly accusing me of things in public that some people will believe them because they are my family. Why they keep lying, why they keep believing the worst about ME, I have no idea. I really want to keep my family together especially to set a good example for our kids, but I can’t do it alone. What more can I do? I’m done defending myself. At this point, the rest of my family, my friends, and my fans know me better than my brother and Melissa anyway. All I can do is just keep love, love, loving!

I do want clear up the Karma comment: I meant nothing by it, I certainly wasn’t referring to Jacqueline’s son, and I don’t even believe in Karma. I’m a Catholic, not a Buddhist or energist or whatever. I don’t believe that you should do good things to rack up good points for a later life. I believe you should do good things because that’s what God wants you to do, to be a good person. I don’t think people have bad things happen to them because they did something bad. Bad things happen to good people all the time. Life is a journey and you need to handle everything that’s thrown at you with grace, not superstition. And I certainly don’t think Autism is a punishment! It’s part of Nicholas’ journey, and I believe like Jacqueline has said, that it’s a gift. Being a mom of 4, I would never wish harm on anyone else’s kids or judge them.

What I was trying to say is an Italian phrase that doesn’t really translate well in English. It kind of means that you don’t talk about or worry about other people’s business because you should be worrying about your own. You shouldn’t judge anyone because you don’t know the details of their situation and you’re not supposed to know. I said “Karma” because honestly it was written all over that resort, they even had sweatshirts in the gift shop that said “Karma.” I didn’t mean Karma, because I don’t mean to sit in judgment of other people. It’s not how I live my life, and you’ll see how it all plays out.

Melissa’s Trip to the Emergency Room
By Melissa Gorga
August 26, 2013

Melissa explains why she was taking those giant horse pills.

Thank you, Joe, for planning a beautiful birthday weekend for me! I just wish I wasn’t sick. I felt pretty bad when I woke up the day we flew out. That was why I squeezed lemons down my throat on the plane — an old tip from my grandmother. A truckload of lemons wouldn’t have helped this time. The dry air in Arizona made my throat even worse. A single drop of water felt like swallowing glass.

My throat closed up. I couldn’t breathe. It was agony, like no pain I’ve felt in my life. Joe took me to the emergency room in Arizona and I wound up spending the night there on morphine. When you see me the next morning I had just gotten back from the hospital, that’s why I had the hospital bracelet on my wrist and I was just taking my first round of medicine. I thought it was strep, but it turned out to be a virus. The horse pills knocked it out in a few days and I started to feel better.

Tina the energy reader. I wasn’t so into it. I’ve always been skeptical of mediums. I don’t believe you’re supposed to know about spirits or the future. If I need guidance or feel uncertain about my next step, I pray. That’s what works for me. No judgment about what works for others. A positive experience is a positive experience. Kathy and Rich got a lot out of what Tina had to say. Her words helped them open blocked doors. It was very moving. Not a dry eye in the room. If a medium can give people comfort, help them move forward and put aside past hurts, great.

I wanted to join everyone on the desert hike, but I wasn’t well enough. I have to admit, as horrible as I felt, it was nice to have time alone and just sit in the sun. Of course then you see me drinking water like it was nothing! LOL! Believe me, I had to psych myself up for each sip.

As the trip continues, you’ll see everyone really open up. It turned out to be an amazing trip for all us. Keep watching to see some interesting revelations.

    I think with the way they are editing Caroline and Al this is very likely. At the end of the season try to trick viewers into thinking Caroline and Al has marital problems and TSIL and TB are the victims of Teresa gossiping with Penny and friends.

    • August 27, 2013 at 11:07 AM

      Guys, Melissa the lying whore who had morphine given to her in an emergency room for a virus (lol) just released her new single on itunes and it is filled with glowing reviews. It is truly, truly awful and should be the nail in the coffin of her musical career. Those of you who are computer savvy should go there and (sorry) listen to it. (it’s painful) and leave a review. We can’t let her sisters leave all these fake reviews that she is better than Jlo now can we?

The labels aren’t taken many risks and they know she would fail.

    This makes me sick. The whole thing makes me sick. The fact that the Guidice’s are in such trouble makes me sick, as I think Juicy is basically a good guy who wasn’t as slick as he thought he was and got very bad legal advice when he declared bankruptcy and then withdrew it. All on national t.v. I think he has just been trying to stay afloat as has Teresa, and I think Teresa is innocent of any wrong doing as she would just trust and go along with what her husband told her to do, which I know is stupid but I do the same thing so i guess I am stupid, too. My husband borrowed money against the house for my son’s college and medical school and I didn’t even know it. Even though the house is both our names, I never signed anything. If I did I don’t remember. When he tells me to sign our income tax returns, I just sign everywhere and don’t even read it. The difference is it is prepared by an accountant. We always ask for an extention so we don’t get audited. Why? I never asked. I trust him. just like Teresa. But back to Bravo.
    I can’t watch them shit all over Teresa again and again, pardon my language, but i just can’t do it. To blame all these people who say Melissa is a whore on Teresa is just ridiculous. She did not do that. And the reason is is that Melissa carries the Gorga name. Do you think she wants to disparage the Gorga name? No. So fuck Bravo. You are disgusting. No wonder so mant reality stars are committing suicide. Yes, it is an epidemic. Bravo ruins lives. I am sure they are trying to ruin Teresa’s life. By airing footage of Juicy saying something incriminating. What they did not expect, is that Teresa would get indicted, too. That kind of messed up their spin off plans. But that is the spin off that they have been plotting and waiting for. too bad things went too far and now Teresa is in big trouble. I reiterate, fuck you Bravo. And for you to end this season by throwing Teresa under the bus, you are disgusting and shameless and unfair and the scum of the earth. Live with that. You will get yours someday. Bastards. I am so tired of this! (rant over)

      My sentiments exactly! I believe the season ending would have been the fight at Porshe 2, but for obvious reasons that can’t happen. The question is, what exactly did the producers want to happen at Porshe, how were they going to edit it, and who was going to be the fall guy for the sensational season finale? We know that the Johnny was blamed for saying something negative about Nicholas….. Lies , lies, lies! I don’t believe he would say anything of the sort since penny is involved with kids with special needs and we know there was a make up session with Johnny before the scene was filmed so he could be set up and feel comfortable coming to Porshe 2 opening. But of course Johnny wasn’t the real target… Why would producers target a non hw and not relate it to one of the housewives? They wouldn’t! So who were the producers really setting up to take the fall? It only makes sense that once again they were setting up Teresa! From the very beginning! Teresa made the karma comment which they relate to Nicholas planting the seed ! And Johnny says that joe Gorga should ask his sister! So I don’t believe that bravo has changed endings for this season… I think they had it planned all along, they just had to figure out a different way to edit it! Fucking scumbags!

Jac needs some serious HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There were comments on the Bravo blogs getting through that were sticking up for Teresa- thank goodness!! But come reunion time, I can see it NOW!!!! And Joe Gorga is pure TRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Acting or no acting, he is garbage to talk about his sister like the way he does and expect respect from her and her family.

    Hi all, first post on here.

    I only found the blog on Friday and spent the whole weekend reading each and every post and all the replies…..

    Thanks for opening my eyes to the crap that bravo are pulling and for getting me back on team Tre!!!!

    I find the whole thing disgusting and even though I disliked miss Cohen beforehand I now dislike him even more for his slyness and backhandedness in setting up the giudices!

    Slick Rick, well I never liked him, a dirty old man with way too many skeletons I suspect. Kathy, dour as dishwater.

    Meho? I felt sorry for her until last Mondays episode and I started to see through her bad acting, she’s almost as bad an actress as she is a singer. Karma is just like her, a baitch.

    Josie? Grow a pair! He tries to act like an Italian stallion but is more like a Shetland pony……

Before you found this site, what was your read on the show? I am always curious how ppl don’t see how Teresa would be upset when the whole Danielle stuff happened (among others) and I would love to hear your thoughts (JUST SO YOU KNWO THIS IS A FRIENDLY QUESTION!!!) I just like to try to understand all points of view and on other sites, the “Team Melissa’s” are so attacking…thanks if you don’t mind sharing 🙂

          • August 28, 2013 at 2:19 AM

            Hi Jack and thanks for your welcome.

            The first 2 seasons I was team Tre and I hated tranielle for the lies and upset she caused. I backed tre 100%. Until the reunion and then, I’m guessing now because of the editing, bit the whole ‘you haven’t seen your new nephew’ thing got to me. I now know it was meho playing tricks.

            Season three I started to like meho and thought Tre was a complete and utter bitch. Yes, I fell for the editing and lies bravo wanted me to fall for.

            Season 4 I was team anyone but Tre. Just like bravo wanted.

            This season I started to have doubts about mehos bad acting and I started to search the usual blogs, but they too are pro meho so when I found this site in one of the comments I started to read, and couldn’t stop.

            Thanks to this site, and the comments I found the truth. And i feel a fool for ever having believed bravo.

            I agree that team meho are very attacking and bitchy in their comments and defense of meho but what do you expect from people who are defending the devil in person?

    I don’t think Andy Cohen has a conscience about the “Housewives” – he considers the cast members almost like toys.

    • kayswhims
      August 26, 2013 at 4:21 PM

      Andy is much like TSIL but a different subtype.

      “The Housewives. According to The New York Daily News’ Gatecrasher gossip column today, anyway. They report that Cohen, feeling like a real legit celebrity these days, is trying to distance himself from his trashy roots.

      An “insider” (read: disgruntled assistant/boytoy) told Gatecrasher that Andy, “wants to have his fancy celebrity friends, and the girls don’t fit.” Oof, burn. This new haughty attitude was apparently evidenced by the fact that Anderson Cooper, one of Cohen’s swinging bachelor pals (when will he settle down?), recently held a party at his house in celebration of Cohen’s new memoir, and that Bethenny Frankel was the only Housewife out of the approximately 12,000 extant Housewives to be invited. Oh, Andy. For shame. And you too, Anderson. (“Andy & Anderson, a new OWN original series.”) Quel rudeness. Cohen is apparently ambitious enough to aim his sights at the likes of Jimmy Fallon and Chelsea Handler, so I guess he’s willing to totes diss his old galpals in the process.”

        How many times is the name of Melissa’s shit song but it is also a question inquiring minds want to know, how many times Andy has blown Cooper Anderson trying to get into his little Hampton Circle of avante garde bon vivants.

          OMG. ROFL. Let’s think on this a little bit::: Anderson is a Vanderbuilt, so knowing the mega wealthy and how they operate, Cohen will never be anything but a favorite pet til Cooper gets bored with him. Then it’s back to the pound. For anyone who doesn’t get the way superrich operate and how they cloister themselves, read or watch the movie, The Talented Mr. Ripley. Another great overview of old rich is Gossip Girl. Cohen will never be viewed as anything more than a nouvue riche clingon.

      IMHO, due to the severity of the legal fully blown shitstorm hitting the Giudice family(Joe and Teresa possibly facing long term jail sentences), the rhonj franchise existence is at risk and will very well be at it’s end… this will be the last season or next season will be re-vamped/re-invented and re-cast… This show and Fame truly have given me such an interesting insight about how unreal, scripted, manipulative, sick and immoral reality-tv and their producers/directors truly are. What a shame the 4 young girls and the elders will be the real victims of this tragedy… so so sad…

        August 26, 2013 at 5:04 PM

        I think Bravo is going to try and squeeze one more season out of the current cast, they have to be salivating over the upcoming trials for Joe and Teresa. I think I read that that were gearing up to film again soon, they were in negotiations for the contracts. I wonder how long it will take to get the Manzo spin-off on the air, that might be the replacment if Joe or Teresa are convicted.

        • Gianni
          August 26, 2013 at 5:48 PM

          You might be right Bobby, you made a truly valid point about BRAVO trying to squeeze another season using the upcoming trials footage if they get the necessary permissions, perhaps Al Mobster…ehm I mean Manzo (sorry for the Freudian slip…) can lean on someone in Jersey in order for BRAVO to get the required permission, other than these
          kind of services, the Manzo’s have nothing to offer… The Manzo’s are as interesting as watching paint dry, can’t imagine a show based on them… The audience just don’t like them… any show with them is doomed to fail. With all the positively biased editing/treatment towards the Manzo’s by Mandy and BRAVO , people still don’t find them interesting…

        Well put. If I was Teresa’s lawyer, I would sue the shit out of bravo and write a tell-all book. She is in so much trouble that a breach of contract dispute with bravo is the least of her worries. Somebody needs to expose Bravo, Heather McLean! That would be a roaring bestseller.

I was talking to my husband last night, and I’m thinking that maybe this FURLOUGH the government workers had to go on, was a Blessing in disguise… I don’t really think my nerves would let me view it, at this point… Last year, while many were laughingly saying they had to take xanax before they watched it… I too had too, it was too intense, more so than, any of those cinematic movies made today….

    I think their gonna twist what Teresa said about her karma affecting her daughters and somehow link her comment to what Johnny the Greek said when Chris and Jacqueline attacked him. Production is up to something. Why are they painting Melissa out to be the victim? I just don’t get it! She lied about being sick TWICE and lied about seeing her ill FIL. If Melissa does not get called out on her lies publicly I’m done watching the show. This is getting so old now. They will never give this woman a damn break!

    • Monique
      August 26, 2013 at 3:29 PM

      ALSO– Teresa has swallowed her pride A LOT this season and took the blame so that they can move forward. NOT ONE of them Caroline, Jacqueline, Kathy, Richie, TB and, TSIL! Ever apologized for what they did to Teresa DEFINITELY TSIL. You have TSIL throwing digs at Teresa trying to insinuate that she’s still trying to spread rumors on her. What about the rumors you told Danielle? Why till this day have you not own up to it or, apologized. TSIL has NEVER apologized to Teresa for how she treated her but she expects Teresa to kiss her feet and apologize to her? No way she got things backwards.

    I just checked the US Magazine website and the new issue isn’t up yet–they still show the current issue as the one with Gia from the bachelor on the cover. So I guess they must release the new issue on Tuesday or Wednesday.

    I am hoping the new issue will be the one with Anthony Arater’s story…we’ve been anticipating this for almost a month now and it’s really f-ing annoying that the Araters don’t know which issue their story will be in, but I think that’s because US magazine will bump it to a later issue if something big happens in entertainment news that they need to cover instead.

    Have hope, people. I just read new negative stories about Teresa on RadarOnline and RealityTea about how Teresa lied about getting an invite to the VMAs just to stick it to Melissa, and how she made a comment about Nick’s autism being due to Jac’s bad karma. I’m really shocked at how Teresa always gets the bad press and Melissa doesn’t. WTF?

    Oh well, the cheating stories will be out soon! I just hope we’re not disappointed with how the magazine spins it!

    • Monique
      August 26, 2013 at 3:42 PM

      Only reason why Melissa got invited is because New Jersey is right next to Brooklyn. They even invited irrelevant cast members from “Love & Hip Hop: New York”! VMA’s sucked trust me Teresa doesn’t even care if she got an invite or not. Get an invite to the Grammy’s then talk crap. Smh!

      • yup
        August 26, 2013 at 3:47 PM

        RealityTea said Melissa’s manager got her the invite:

        We reached out to Melissa Gorga’s rep to see how she got the VMA invite and were told, “Melissa’s music manager Johnny Wright arranged her invite to the Video Music Awards.” Johnny Wright is also the manager for Justin Timberlake and The Jonas Bros, etc, so he’s a legit player in the industry. 😉

        • August 26, 2013 at 7:10 PM

          I am sure she did tell them that. Johnny Wright is her manager because he is just another famewhore. Why did it take so long , from early July until late August, to release it on show tunes. The song stinks! She could care less, her and Joe will take any fame they can get, she isn’t a hard worker, it is all one big game. Well, enjoy it while you can, because the ride will soon be over.

        • August 26, 2013 at 10:27 PM

          Melissa as usual is blowing smoke out of her ass. They were filling seats with housewives. Big Ang (who I love … show starts on 9/8 — VH1) was there too.

      • August 26, 2013 at 10:18 PM

        Yep and Sackem what kills me about that is that they vilified Teresa for a whole season for articles where they were just quoted. Teresa didn’t get quoted saying derogatory things against them. Melissa is on full attack mode. It’s disgusting as Melissa is quoted saying those things about Tre. Mel is trying so hard to be Tre and get her fanbase — she’s fake and does not have the it factor. She ruined the show.

    • August 26, 2013 at 11:31 PM

      I can’t believe he would sell his story to US magazine! That magazine is pro-TSIL and anti-Tre! I’m wondering if US magazine bought the story in order in kill the story? I’m wondering, now, if there was ever a story?

      That reminds me!!! Fame, remember when Jay Mohr tweeted that Melissa asked him to say negative stuff about Teresa and her books/businesses? I just saw that somewhere–not sure if it was hear or somewhere else.

      I would LOVE for someone to bring that up to Melissa’s face when she claims teresa always hurts her and talks about her to the press, etc. Is she going to call Jay Mohr a liar? He had no reason to lie, he was blogging about RHONJ for bravotv.com at the time.

      I forgot about that but it’s sooooo messed up, and Melissa can’t deny that she did it.

      • yup
        August 27, 2013 at 1:49 AM

        Here’s a recap from reality tea (sept. 2011):

        Jay retaliated by Tweeting: “Listen up! @melissagorga I CRUSHED Teresa four weeks in a row. I CRUSHED Joe G. Too! WHY ARE YOU ON REALITY TELEVISION THEN?!!” Touche, Mama Gorga, Touche. Go back to being off display if you don’t want people “critiquing” your hypocritical behavior!”

        Jay launched another Tweet: “@melissagorga Did you think I was mean when I said your daughter was the most beautiful child I had ever seen? Don’t remember a thank you.” “For the record @melissagorga tonight told me to blog negative things about @Teresa_Giudice books and businesses. #fact #sad”

        In Melissa’s defense (she needs one bad!) it appears Melissa did not ask Jay to trash Tre but rather asked him why he trashes her singing but never Teresa’s books and businesses. Melissa then responded with: “Never her books or business, crush? Hardly… Mean doesn’t =funny” Yeah, Melissa – family comes first!

        Real Fan Club also called Melissa out on her nonsense, Tweeting: If @melissagorga can’t handle @jaymohr37, a comedian, then she has no business trying 2 break into the industry! #Lifeofanentertainer. Melissa responded with this ridiculous Tweet: “@REALFANSCLUB @jaymohr37 I can handle him just don’t like him, Don’t get it twisted!” With Jay snarkily responding: “DONT GET IT TWISTED is my new single. ”

    At this point I am done with this show. It has crumbled like one of the crappy cardboard sinks in the Gorgon Mansionette.

    I’m tired of watching a show that plays the same broken “Missy is the Victim. Tre is the Villian” record over and over and over. Enough is enough. Why that Little Bitch Cohen reveres that filthy slop bucket of a whore is beyond me. Maybe it’s a gay fetish to idolize coke snorting, bed hopping narcissists. Maybe Our Miss Andy also believes (like Easy Missy) that a fun evening involves knee pads, a parking lot and a bottle of Scope?

    I started watching the show because it was a hoot to see my “domain” on the tube. To see local places featured made a connection with me. Also, since I have quite a bit of experience with eccentric Jersey-Italian families and *their* drama made it all identifiable. At first it was fun. Then that Spray Tanned STD showed up with her Lawn Jockey husband and it all started going to hell. Stuff started to make less and less sense and the whole shebang thing got darker and darker. I kept waiting for some sort of redemption, some justice, some atonement. Nothing happened. Mel-Syphilis and the Carnal Cretin keep spewing lies and venom. Bravo/Sirens editors keep running around with their hair on fire, re-editing and re-dubbing until it’s like watching a Fellini movie dubbed in Mandarin.

    And Bravo wonders why the ratings are dropping? The show SUCKS. The only person anyone actually cares about is being constantly tortured by a cast of despicable morons. There is no satisfaction for viewers. Maybe some Comcast executive will actually feel guilty about the rubbish that Bravo spews out and reformat the channel…

    • August 26, 2013 at 7:36 PM

      I just can’t help myself..shebang=she bang, this my friend is what happened to this show. (she banged everyone and then some) I wonder if Lapband is happy this season? From the looks of things..daddy’s money was wasted. The comment from Albie, about not being in a position to TAKE MONIES from BLK was in itself very unsettling, knowing what we know now. I swear to God if any man other than my husband EVER said that to me I would be done, done, done. (camel toe) Bravo has dumb down we the viewers and we have had enough. HURT THEM WHERE IT COUNTS…….$$$$$$. speaking of that, what the hell has happened to Miley Cyrus? Now maybe TSIL will have a “twerking” video to go with her new song. Teresa, you were very smart not to attend the VMA’s last evening. …..WHAT A WASTE:{

      Amen!!! They have been over painting Melissa as the “victim”! I really do believe that Andy has something to do w/ it. The only thing that can shut Melissa up for good is Bryan. There needs to be visual proof to demolished Melissa’s glass house reputation. Jan knows more than what we know but there has to be proof to validate Melissa’s past. I believe EVERYTHING that has been said towards her BUT 3 seasons of “hearsay” and STILL nothing on this self absorbed clown?! She’s a terrible person and Bravo is gonna paint Teresa and Joe as criminals next episode along w/ their legal troubles that has finally surfaced. I believe Jacqueline or Joe/Melissa played apart of this huge court case Teresa and Joe are in and I hope that they ALL will be called out in their wrong doings. I’m more disgusted by this than Miley Cyrus performance. HAHA!!! 🙂

        I have a feeling that nobody is going to step forward to tell the truth. Everyone (Brian, Jan, Anthony, Penny, etc.) throws out a few shocking lines and leave it at that. Maybe they do know the truth and even have proof, but are not wanting to get sucked into this dead-end mess. Seriously – where the hell can this show go? Meli-Syphilis could give STDs to a Frat House on video and still get a saintly edit. The Neanderthal Nut Nibbler could smack a nun with a 2×4 and then sit sobbing in a corner about his broken heart and get the same edit. There is nothing left of this human train wreck to exploit. Our Miss Cohen played the victim vs villain card to boost ratings on all these shows. Now that *he* has emerged as an even slimier fame whore, he could give a rat’s ass about the shows. In his crack-addled fantasy world he imagines himself as a gay Johnny Carson in that pissy little clubhouse. I hope Teresa walks away from the show after the “reunion”. Then what’s left of the show? Who in their right mind would join the show knowing that Dandy Andy would feed alive them to the Crack Whore and her Poison filled Stump? Caroline will keep phoning it in while using each appearance as an infomercial for her kid’s half-assed attempts at playing businessman. That leaves the Cannoli Queen and the Lebanese Letch? Folk are going to tune in for them? Don’t think so.

        Only way to salvage the show at this point it for Dame Cohen to go bat shit crazy on Meli-Syphilis and her STD laden past. Hang the bitch out to dry in the most undignified way would satisfy viewers like us, and I’m sure it would boost ratings, which is all that matters in Bravo’s universe…

          A lot of these people who are close to the cast have to sign contracts with Bravo stating that they won’t speak about certain things. It is all engineered by Bravo. Bravo asked penny the questions about Bryan but she can’t say that on the show. They do this so they can spin it to make Teresa look bad.

They are ALL delusional, all in cahoots with each other. There is no Team Teresa, or Team Melissa. Neither one is a victim, they are both selfish morons who will undoubtedly pay for their horrible life decisions long after the spotlight of the soon fading Bravo series fades.

    August 26, 2013 at 7:02 PM

    I watched the Jan episode yesterday and the first thing I thought was “Why are they STILL trying to pin it on Teresa?” All she was saying was “see, I didn’t do it”

    I felt like they were at cross purposes and that perhaps the little producer birdies had told each party a different thing. Of course Penny wasn’t going to say who was asking her – that’s when the GREAT TWITTER WAR of 2013 was erupting, for all we know she was protecting a tweeter, a writer, a producer, her own interests (lets face it, bringing the drama means something in the Reality world) the kid down the street. Bravo continues to sway us with the two against one TH. I almost want to go back and count how many times we cut to Missy and Joey vs how many times we see Teresa.

    I think Jan was right : this is Missy’s storyline and girlfriend is working it. What else does she have going for her? A house with no furniture (how she’s going for a home wares line is beyond me a) we don’t see inside her home b) Teresa helped her furnish it), children she doesn’t play with in case she breaks a nail, a husband who’s career is changing behind the scenes and two sisters who are suspiciously absent this season: insert old friends. Jeez her makeup artist, the one who goes to war is also MIA. Trying to keep Andy happy?

    The setting up to go to Arizona – she was pained to think Teresa was going. Good place? Hardly. She’s inching her further and further upstage with the hopes she fall into the orchestra pit!
    Why was there so much grumbling on behalf of Joey to go to the thing that Teresa organised and yet he appears to be doing exactly the same thing proclaiming he wants to “save the family” – I want to barf. When the chips are down and they need screen time, it’s Teresa’s burden to fix the family, when they need to prove themselves to the cast, all of a sudden “the angel from God” is the white night. Why would you ask Chris and what’s his face if you should invite your sister when you’ve hugged it out already?

    The outting of Bulldog was a lucky break for the Whorgas, keeps them relevant, Godforbid they actual make up with Teresa, where’s the drama in that? Missy would be a bit player to Teresa’s enterprises, Milania’s one liners alone blows them off the screen. I have to ask, who is really keeping who down when they start to succeed?

    I also can see that the army they talk about does not comprise merely of Jan, Penny and Kim – they are alluding to us! Don’t you get it Missy? We don’t trust you because if the way you weaselled into our living rooms! You flung so much dirt in the hopes it would stick that we felt compelled to find out your motivation – the hypocrisies and lies that tumble from your lips show us everything. You had the chance to be real with us when you got the converted spot and you blew it. Everyone loves a flawed character, not a pious one, and I’m not talking religion.

    I agree that the key to ALL this is the charges and what Bravo needs to do to ensure the survival of the franchise without it’s main player. We know that the investigation has been going on for two years, for Bravo not to know is rediculous. I think it’s safe to say this is why Andy doesn’t like Teresa, this scandal threatens his empire with negative press.

    I’m trying to figure out why NJ is more about drama. NY, BH OC bring glamour and location, location – it’s all colour and movement, I can’t comment on Miami and Atlanta because they never sucked me in. No offence to NJ folk but they never show us the beauty of your state. All we see are back rooms and kitchens, the drama’s all they got.

        @ Meri

        Congratulations to you too!

        My baby’s baby is due March 6th! It was March 16 up till yesterday, lol 🙂

        They will not know the sex till the baby shower Jan 5. The Dr’s office calls the bakery and they do something to the cake to differentiate boy/girl! What fun!

        I’m going with the Italian for grandma as well. If it is a girl I hope they use my mother’s name – Tomasina – I’m still sorry I didn’t name my daughter after her…

        The countdown will be fun!

    If Bravo once agains ends the season with Teresa being the evil one and TSIL the victim I will stop watching I don’t care if Teresa is in it next season. Enough is enough. I really hope Teresa is wise enough to not renew her contract with Bravo.

    Okay so this is a different tirade but Bravo lets some vile and hateful comments show up I just saw one in Kathy’s blog so I replied stating that the person who said that should not have and bravo shouldn’t have posted it. My comment got rejected (I just tried again leaving Bravotv out) but seriously that was wrong! Basically my question is do they block all newbies?

    • August 27, 2013 at 12:11 AM

      No, I think the interns have instructions on the to post and not to post comments and sometimes they just play darts or roll dice to determine if they are going to post you. There is no rhyme no reason. I still post and about 1/2 of mine get through.

    TSIL’s blog is so laughable! She’s a cu next Tuesday and delusional. She went to the ER and her sore throat was not strep but viral and kept her overnight and gave her a morphine drip? WTF? If she were in that much pain that she required morphine, she would not have been discharged and sunning on her patio in make-up the next day. The chick can’t help herself but to lie. They might have put her on an IV drip for dehydration, but morphine nope.

    • yup
      August 27, 2013 at 1:42 AM

      I agree, the morphine drip has to be complete BS! I don’t care what kind of virus she has, hospitals don’t hook people up for morphine drips just because they whine that they’re in the worst pain of their life–check out an ER waiting room and every patient is saying that. you think they all get morphine drips??

      It’s insane because it’s a weird detail to lie about for no apparent reason. Is this just to assure viewers that she was in pain while she was lying by the pool in a bikini instead of working on her relationship with her sister in law? It’s fucking weird. BUT pathological liars will lie about a lot of details that seem unimportant.

      • August 27, 2013 at 1:54 AM

        I’m sorry when I’m sick, I’m not going be lying by the pool in makeup after a morphine drip. She’s so full of shit.

        I’m an RN. They don’t give you morphine drips for a sore throat or antibiotics for a virus. She is completely full of sh#t. They also would not have kept her overnite. She is a pathological liar and a drama queen

        • Jessie
          August 27, 2013 at 4:26 AM

          THIS!! I’m an RN and the only people that get morphine drips are people that have MAJOR surgery. And antibiotics are only used for a bacterial infection (like strep), viruses have to run its course. I have had strep before where it felt like my throat was closing up and I was swallowing glass. I got a shot of penicillin in my ass and I sure as shit didn’t feel like laying by the pool the next day. Not saying she wasn’t sick, but what a drama queen!

        • elemcee
          August 27, 2013 at 12:58 PM

          The urologist does not give my daughter morphine when she is passing a kidney stone. TSIL is beyond ridiculous. My bestie was on a morphine pump when she had her spine fused. But, I am sure TSIL’s pain was comparable to a spinal fusion… Idiot. Morphine was probably the only legal drug name she knows, so she had to say that one, couldn’t use a street drug name. She knows all of those.

        • vallygirl
          August 27, 2013 at 1:08 PM

          Becca I just posted almost the same thing as your post. Morphine would of slowed down her breathing a bit right? Meho claimed her throat closed up so she went to the ER. Motrin would of made more sence in my opinion. How does this freak keep up with so many lies?

        • August 27, 2013 at 2:04 PM

          I find it odd that a mother of three does not know that a doctor doesn’t give an antibiotic for a virus related ailment….

          To add in an antibiotic and morphine in TSIL’s blog is just another example of how badly the liar wants to be the courageous victim.

      • August 27, 2013 at 3:52 AM

        I worked at a hospital and if a patients throat is painfully sore they usually order a viscous lidocaine swish and spit med for them. It numbs the throat! I’m sure they ordered her to take liquid motrin for pain and inflammation, which is OTC but morphine? I really doubt that! It’s been a year since I worked at the hospital and the anti-viral drug the hospital would order for patients usually were for the flu! Also, the drugs, from what I remembered, are given, not to cure you, but to help your body recover from the virus 1-2 days faster! Maybe she had a herpes outbreak on her tonsils? That might be painful and would warrent antiviral meds to help her recover faster? I am fortunate to be herpes free but I do hear that there painful so maybe she did get some pain med to help her pain? I still think the viscous lidocaine would work better for her, though. That’s the only thing I can think of! I hope no one drank after her! You know, Tb did say something like he’s not worried catching any disease she has, so maybe she had herpes simplex virus 1 on her tonsils, or down her throat? Ewww….

          OMG!!! You reminded me of something. A good friend of mine had a rather nasty upper respiratory infection many years ago. It was misdiagnosed and manifested itself into her mouth and gums being riddled with cold sores. The pain was terrible and she did end up with the viscous lidocaine. It was almost mucous like and numbed *everything*. She was warned not to speak or eat after swishing because she might bite her lip or tongue and not notice.

          The fact that this is the *second* time that Meli-Syphilis has gotten a “sore throat” might mean she should stay clear of parking lots…

            I was hospitalized with mouth sores like that when I was receiving chemo for breast cancer. I did actually get admitted overnite for IV fluids because I was a little dehydrated and an IV drip of Dilaudid for pain control. Does she have cancer? That and herpes are probably the only things that will give you mouth sores bad enough to get you admitted and IV pain meds

            • August 27, 2013 at 11:42 PM

              I hope your doing better now, Becca! I do recall a patient who was admitted for severe thrush! Which is, basically, an overgrowth of yeast in her mouth. She wore denture’s and wasn’t cleaning them properly! She was admitted until the swelling in her mouth/throat went down so she could take oral pills. The Physician ordered IV meds for the thrush, inflammation and pain! I don’t recall this patient getting a morphine drip, though.

    • August 27, 2013 at 3:26 AM

      Morphine for a sore throat??? Yeah right! Plus the fact, if I’d been kept in hospital overnight my husband would do one of two things, take me straight home (not to a resort) and if I insisted (or production insisted) we stay, he would not leave my side. Plus he wouldn’t be offering me ‘Tarzan’ at the breakfast table!!!

      Doesn’t bravo feed on all meho related drama and make her into the victim? Her being rushed to hospital and on a drip must have been TV gold for them…..wonder why they didn’t show it? Or she didn’t mention it in her th? Missed a golden opportunity there bravo to show poor wee meho, on her deathbed, still staying in Arizona so her hubby could work things out with his sister! She is the next mother Teresa…………….

      Smells like bs all the way from Italy meho……just saying……

        20 bucks said the hospital wouldn’t allowing filming, although it is strange they didn’t show any of MeHo’s “adventure” in the ER.

        • August 27, 2013 at 4:50 AM

          Exactly a midnight rush to the er would be gold to the production team trying to make her look like the perpetual victim. Plus I find it strange that when they went hiking and the guide asked where meho was Josie just said ‘she’s sick’ and not ‘my wife spent the night in the er’.

          I wonder if any of the production team stayed behind with meho while josie was out hiking……..

      August 27, 2013 at 9:38 AM

      that is exactly what I thought. When I am sick, no matter how much makeup I pile on and how high my heals are, I still look like crap! This woman is delusional, they gave her morphine for a sore throat? Is this the same hospital that she “rushed” her husband to while her FIL was sick? Or the same wonder hospital that performed wonder surgery on Jac – that she was able to bend down a “couple of days” after her it to pick up nick? Notice how TSIL “cant drink anything” but when she is laying out she sure was drinking something and IMO it was too cloudy to be water, looked like alcohol. She did not hesitate to say “ewe no” when stumpy offered Tarzan, she said “ew” instead of saying “honey I’m sick” As much as T is getting the bad edit, Bravo is not realizing how bad they are making TSIL look, the all about family girl is BARELY with her family and T, “who always leaves her kids with her mother,” is always with her kids! Bravo please hire smarter people not only as housewives, but as producers as well, this season is a crap show at its finest -totally unprofessional.

    • August 27, 2013 at 9:38 AM

      My husband and son are doctors, and they told me that no E.R. would ever give a morphine drip to some idiot with a virus. She is lying again. Does she really think we are stupid? These are controlled substances, and she makes a mockery of people who are genuinely in serious pain. What a whore,.

      I figure when she she says she spent the night in the ER, she was spending most of that time waiting to be seen! You can easily spend 6 hours in the ER for minor things, it takes so long to get anything done. I don’t think they admitted her, and they probably gave her some codiene at best. I do think she was sick, though, because she looked like hell during that scene when she’s taking the meds. She was trying to look good, but it wasn’t working!

  22. August 27, 2013 at 1:06 AM

    From Teresa’s blog …

    It makes me so sad since he is my brother and they know the truth about me. They know that by constantly accusing me of things in public that some people will believe them because they are my family. Why they keep lying, why they keep believing the worst about ME, I have no idea. I really want to keep my family together especially to set a good example for our kids, but I can’t do it alone. What more can I do? I’m done defending myself. At this point, the rest of my family, my friends, and my fans know me better than my brother and Melissa anyway. All I can do is just keep love, love, loving!

    I have to give Tre a standing ovation for this and say it’s about damn time.

    Honestly, the thing that really makes me sick is that Andy has supposedly always had a fondness for Teresa’s daughters. How can he so callously hurt those girls the way he has by picking on their mother over and over again?

    I’m sure there are plenty of mindless lemmings who love the Gorgas, and hate Teresa, but even those people must be tired of the same heartless scenario season after season. I can’t stand Melissa, but if the ENTIRE cast (including the husbands and ancillary extras) were all ganging up on her time and time again, I’d quickly become outraged and sympathetic toward her.

    To think T’s own family is so selfish to abuse her repeatedly for their own gain is nauseating, but knowing they are all shamelessly hurting those innocent children is simply unconscionable!

    Andy, and the Bravo network, is the epitome of evil, and that kind of ugliness can’t go on forever. Eventually a line will be crossed that will land THEM in some serious hot water, and I’m truly shocked that it hasn’t happened already. To them human life is cheap, and morality is just a word in a dusty old Webster’s.

    • bobby brooks
      August 27, 2013 at 10:05 AM

      I’m not a fan of Bravo, but it’s ridiculous to call them “the epitome of evil” when we have things in the world going on like chemical weapons attacks against civilians in Syria. That is a demonstration that to some people, human life is cheap, not the Real Housewives of New Jersey. I’m not trying to be antagonistic, I just hate that words like “evil” are thrown around so casually, when there is true evil happening.

      At the end of the day, this is an entertainment television show that every participant willingly signed up for, including Teresa and Joe. They are the ones who are responsible for protecting their children, not Andy Cohen and not Bravo.

    • elemcee
      August 27, 2013 at 1:06 PM

      Andy does not have children. He is not smart enough to figure out what affects the parents will hurt the children. He is too selfish to understand that concept. If he had children of his own he might figure it out, maybe.

      • bobby brooks
        August 27, 2013 at 1:39 PM

        Teresa and Joe have signed themselves and their children up for this show for five seasons now. Sorry to say but they are responsible for their own children’s well being, not Andy.

  24. August 27, 2013 at 4:40 AM

    You know what, I’m going to say Melissa planted the story about her cheating – that accusation seemed to work about everything printed about Teresa…. She has a magazine deal right? She’s trying to get sympathy from the viewers right? She got paid for the story right?

    • Dubbalicious
      August 27, 2013 at 8:38 AM

      Sackem, I’ve often thought the same!! Melissa is behind her own “storyline” anything to stay relevant!

    • August 27, 2013 at 2:23 PM

      Thank you! I always found the fact that Joey decided to put the rumor Teresa had heard about his wife on tv was the seed of this cheating storyline. I have always believed that Melissa and Joey are behind the cheating story – Melissa to deflect from the real cheating as she has Joey believing his sister, whom she hates, was the one who tried to stop their storyline.

      Teresa has an army trying to break up her brother’s marriage? Teresa found Melissa’s friend Jan and got her on the show? Teresa made Penny trash Melissa, who claims she doesn’t know Penny? As their excuses for blaming Teresa get more lame and the real truth is knocking at the door they just keep blaming Teresa! So I wonder, do the Gorga know more about what production is doing than the rest of the cast? IMHO, Melissa and Joey really think they brought Teresa down as promised and that now Bravo Andy will award them the breakout, fan favorite stars of the RHNJ franchise. Considering the subtle changes in the direction as this season heads to the finale…they just might be right!

    Just one more point. Meho claims she doesn’t believe in mediums and ‘prays’ for guidance (didn’t know devils prayed), so why then last season when the 2 sisters came rushing over to her house to tell her about the message from her dad via medium about her ‘singing’ career did she bust out crying and believe every word???? If I remember rightly that was aired last June.

    I think she is afraid of meeting a real medium, because they will be able to call her out on all her bs!!!!!

    • mktgdrivethru
      August 27, 2013 at 11:02 PM

      And for someone who is so religious, does Meho not realize that mediums are “false prophets” ? Jesus does not approve.

  27. August 27, 2013 at 6:49 AM

    I’m wondering if Melissa wasn’t sick, maybe had another procedure? Why get 4 bottles of pills and the morphine is ridiculous. She tweets every move she makes, but nothing about being so sick she had to go to the hospital? I also agree that this would’ve added some drama to the show, even if they couldn’t film in the hospital. Something fishy here!

    Thanks for all the comments from medical experts…when my first sketti kitten was born via Csection circa 1986 I enjoyed a post op morphine drip. And Boy Howdy, do I mean ENJOYED! When the 2nd kitten came along same way circa 1997, I actively faked symptoms hoping for the same treatment I hadn’t fully realized I’d been jonesing for it all those long 11 years, lol! 🙂

    Guess what? NO DICE. Some very nice drips in ’97 but no morphine. 😦

    A virus AND morphine? #suchaliar

    Also yes, Lil Joey Gorga is such TRASH.

    I can barely watch anymore…I DVR late so they don’t get the ratings. Saw that Trump is getting sued? Indicted? Hope he sends some lawyers T’s way. The Manzo spin off will be as successful as her book.

    Got my Milania set…used the 1 serum already and love love loved…and I don’t like anything, lol.

  29. August 27, 2013 at 7:01 AM

    Your right, Irishitaliankitchen, she did say something in regards to mediums. It’s from the Melissa’s August 15, 2011 blog, “Dreams do come true”. Here is the paragraph your talking about:

    “This was kind of a sad episode right? A lot of crying going on… I think so many people relate to us because we put it all out there. We show you guys what’s really going on. When my sisters stopped by and let me know that my father reached out to me with a medium, I was really in shock. My whole body got the chills and I couldn’t hold back the tears. I just could visualize his face and those were words that he would say, “Stay grounded.” Sorry I just lost it. I don’t usually believe in that kind of stuff, but something hit me inside, and I felt it was true. I know he’s jamming up there to On Display! Love him!”.

    Good catch! She does say she doesn’t believe in that stuff but decided since it was her father’s spirit she felt it was true! It just proves that she has such hate for Tre that she doesn’t want to believe anything good about her! No matter what, Tsil is always going to see the “bad” in Tre. I’ll say a lot of it is due to the show. If she likes Tre then she becomes boring, which she’s boring hating Tre, too! I guess hating Tre is her bread and butter and tickets to events where she is interviewed about Tre!!! This storyline is getting old and there is no solution to the Whorga vs. Tre fight. Tsil is just going to manipulate any proof that Tre is nice into making Tre look like the villian! Only evil sociopath’s think like that! I’m sick and tired of watching the Whorgas tag team their own family! They enjoy picking on Tre and bullying her because of Tsil’s skanky azz past! I guess Tsil thinks Tre is jealous of her since she worked at Lookers and had a parking lot encounter with an ex-BF? It makes no sense!

        All I want to know is there some kind of law that can help teresa go against bravo? Like unlawful entrapment? If this goes as deep as it seems(like a setup)?!? Can’t she sue bravo?? They used her as a pawn in their little game!!Now they are going to throw her away like garbage!! Fuck bravo,miss andy and friends;/ No longer a friend of mine;(!!!!”

          I’m confused, what would Teresa sue Bravo for exactly? What kind of entrapment? I think in the contract they sign, it says that Bravo can use the footage in any way, shape or form that they see fit, and that the housewives have no control over how they are portrayed. They really sign over everything to Bravo, I can’t imagine what Teresa could sue for considering their contracts.

        • August 27, 2013 at 2:32 PM

          The Feds requested all film from the show – is it to further their case against the Guidices? Or is it also going to be reviewed as it relates to the other cast members who show a life style that doesn’t match their declared income? Teresa claims it was Bravo’s idea for her to be throwing cash around with wild abandon on purchases the rest of us save up for, put on credit, etc – but IMHO, I don’t see how Teresa can sue Bravo. Strangers things have happened and only a cast member from this thick as thieves franchise would ask about audits and wiretaps! We may just be at the tip of this iceberg….

            But if they have 6 takes of Tre “paying cash” for furniture and you can hear a Bravo producer coaching her to hold the bills so it looks like more cash, that could be explained as staged and not reality. Just an example – but it would be interesting to see what is “on the cutting room floor” and if some of the other cast members attract the scrutiny of the Feds. Imagine is Cracker-Jax is seen spending some of that Signature Apparel money….

    • August 27, 2013 at 1:03 PM

      Wow! I’m impressed! I’m just so tired of the story lines revolving about who might have said something about Melissa. As soon as Teresa can say “who cares” and the others stop wanting to talk about it, then maybe they can move on. I think they all are just out for themselves! If a producer asked me to attend a party to talk to a cast member, I would get the money up front.

    Completely off topic…I’m bored so I decided to check out everyone’s twitter sites. ROL and OK mag posted there best dress list for the VMA’s and Melissa made their best list (not that those magazines mean much), what makes this so amusing is that no RHOJ cast congratulated her not even her husband only her skanky sisters and her horrible mother tweeted about it. Oh and a side note no one but tb, and the skank family congratulated her about her new single. Seems like everyone continues to distance themselves from her.

    I posted this on Bravo but I doubt it will be approved so I’ll leave it here. In response to TSIL’s blog:

    Oh what a massive surprise, no accountability or explanation as to your actions again this episode apart from to play the victim card. You make me sick. I’d also like to point out that if you believe in the Christian God there IS something fundamentally wrong with using a medium…..God is the only one who can heal you from your pain and past hurts and He should get the credit 100% every time. You need to practice what you preach Melissa, and if you really took Jesus teachings to heart…..you’d be a little more gracious and less of an absolute snake. There is nothing redeeming about you whatsoever and every single week…your facade gets a little weaker and more transparent. However….there are still a few people that haven’t quite caught on yet and I’m sure we’ll hear from them. P.s…..I’d rather listen to a bag of cats drowning in a river than listen to your sad little single….and I’m a major cat person. PEACE.

    I hate the fact that Bravo are redoing the season’s end. I am glad there are sites like this where we can all read about it and get the truth….but there are some poor ferret heads out there that just will not accept that this is the case and Bravo are running a friggin’ racket. I can see the comments now, the pro Meldusa comments on Bravo are enough to send me into a rage as it is….this will make it soooo much worse. PAY ATTENTION PUH-LEASE!

    I came into some interesting information while I was in Jersey this weekend. I can’t say who I had this meeting with but it is someone close to Monica Chacon! The disgusting lawyer who has ruined the Giudices. Okay here goes…. this women I was speaking to told me that when the 1st season of RHONJ aired & Teresa became the breakout star her sister in law Melissa & her lovely Brother Joe began contacting Monica Chacon & Kim Granatel. Melissa & Joe & the Marco sisters where the ones feeding Monica all the dirt on the Giudices finances!!! Melissa did the same thing to Danielle but she didn’t take the bait. Monica Chacon did. During season 3 when Melissa tried to pretend she didn’t know Monica it was just to hide the fact that she DID know her! For years Melissa & Joe Gorga told Monica everything the Giudices did. When they got Mortgages, when they were building on, when they went shopping & bought expensive clothes & furniture. When Teresa had appearances & if she got paid for them! Monica & Kim were compiling all of this information to make a case against the Giudices for fraud! It was Melissa who has done all of this to Teresa! She was the one telling them the house was in forclosure & that the Giudices lied on taxes & Mortgage apps & that Teresa made more money then she was admitting to. All of this shadiness was going on during seasons 1 & 2 & then on season 3 there was the devil herself… Melissa!! She then preceded to play victim & act like Teresa did something wrong to her when it was the Gorgas who purposefully lied to Monica & Kim to take Teresa down!! The Gorgas have known this whole time that there was a case being made against his own sister to put her in jail. WHO DOES THAT TO HIS SISTER & NIECES!!!!!!! The Gorgas fed all of this info to Monica Chacon & Kim Granatel! And half of what Melissa told Monica was not even true. Monica Chacon should be disbarred since she constantly breaks client confidentiality! She talks about the Giudice case all over jersey to whoever will listen which I think, is not what a lawyer is supposed to do. Finding out this info has made my head spin but I also know it is completely true. It makes complete sense about how Monica Chacon came upon all this info about the Giudices. Melissa also told Monica about the magazine articles & said Tre gets paid for them. I was also told that Joe Giudices ex business partner, who filed a suit first & was represented by Monica, was also in cahoots with Melissa & Joe Gorga. The Gorgas went to the business partner & that’s how they met Monica & told her they would help her take the Giudices down!! Then low & behold suddenly Melissa got cast on the show!!! Someone needs to look into Monica Chacon & needs to report her for her illegal practices as a lawyer. If I knew how to go about that I would do it myself. These people make me sick! There are 4 little girls who need there parents!

      • xjrsygrl7733
        August 27, 2013 at 11:12 AM

        Kim G was on the show in the 1st 2 seasons & Monica made her appearance in season 3 at the Gorgas party when Melissa denied knowing her but Monica said she knew Melissa & Joe. Monica is the one suing the Giudices & it was Melissa & Joe who was telling Monica & Kim G about the Giudices Finances. Melissa did the same thing with Danielle Staub & wanted to film with her. She told Danielle about Tre’s Finances & that her house was in forclosure. Melissa was trying anything she could do to get on the show a bring Teresa down!

        • Sackem
          August 27, 2013 at 2:16 PM

          Kim G was only a bit player, she didn’t get more airtime until season two with Danielle’s antics. We’d never heard of Monica until season three – I just don’t understand how Missy would benefit from blabbing to those two in season 1. Danielle – definitely.
          Not being argumentative – genuinely curious as to why these two do early. Could it be Danielle was venting to Kim G then the Granny insult came out do she used it?

          • August 27, 2013 at 2:48 PM

            I can see Melissa doing this – it would take awhile but if her goal was to get Teresa off the show so she could be her “replacement” as fan favorite (which you know she believes she is), then it appears that she is reaching part of that goal. Seems Melissa will enlist whoever furthers her personal agenda (using Jan as an alibi so she could hook up with an old boyfriend, feeding info to Danielle that she knew would drive Teresa crazy, etc, etc., etc!).

          • xjrsygrl7733
            August 29, 2013 at 1:47 PM

            Um because they knew Monica was suing the Giudices on behalf of Juicy’s Business partner so they were in contact with her even though the Gorgas denied knowing her. Melissa told Monica & Kim the same things she told Danielle. It doesn’t have anything to do with how much air time they have had. These were things going on behind the scenes. Why do you think Bravo had Kim & Monica go to Melissa’s party season 3? Bravo was fully aware of all the people Melissa had contacted trying to get on the show! Danielle, Monica, Kim G. & probably many others. Both Monica & Kim G both said in interviews that they did indeed know Melissa but Melissa kept denying knowing them. She was feeding info to Monica & Juicy’s ex business partner. The business partner who also was working with Joe Gorga during the time he was suing Giudices!

    • bobby brooks
      August 27, 2013 at 10:56 AM

      I’m sorry to say, I think someone is yanking your chain. The Giudices themselves filed for bankruptcy, the bankruptcy trustee was assigned to verify the accuracy of the filing as with any bankruptcy and found discrepencies and concealed assets, and filed a motion accusing the Giudices of Bankruptcy Fraud which is a federal crime. That is what led to the investigation and charges by the Federal Government.

      Monica Chacon is just trying to get her 15 minutes, and she’s overinflating her involvement wiht the Giudice case, probably both to get attention and because she hates Teresa and Joe. The Feds were alerted to fraud by the federal bankruptcy court, they started digging and unearthed a mountain.

          Monica has been on Tv & in magazines talking about the Giudices & their court cases. She also talks about them all over Jersey. The Prosecutor doesn’t seem to have a problem with that which leads me to believe that this is a witch hunt & they just want make an example out of the Giudices. The whole thing has been a set up, with Teresa’s cast mates & her brother &Sil all in on it from the beginning. That’s why Caroline & Jac wouldn’t stop talking about the magazine articles & if she gets paid or not or what she has bought recently. Why isn’t the prosecutor filing charges against the Lauritas, Gorgas & Wakiles? They all have stolen more money from the Government than anyone else. The Lauritas stole 300 million dollars from their company. Wheres the justice for them?

    Yeah I understand that but Melissa was spilling financial info to Monica about the Giudices as well so more info was out that Monica could go after them for. And no one is yanking my chain I know these people & I know what they are about. The point is Melissa denied knowing Monica when she came to her party but for over 2 years she was in contact with her telling her everything she could about what the Giudices are doing. She stalked the producers for years trying to get on & contacted anyone she knew did not like Teresa. Danielle, KimG, Monica, the ex business partner ect….. That’s why Bravo finally cast her, because she said she would bring Teresa down!

    • bobby brooks

      I just don’t believe that Melissa or Joe would even know about Teresa and Joe’s finances, how does Melissa know what Teresa makes or how much Teresa gets paid for an appearance? I don’t think Teresa is calling up Melissa saying “hey, I just got 10 grand in cash for an appearance!”. It’s just not believable to me.

        I can see Melissa talking about Teresa’s spending, whether to Kim G or Monica or anyone who would listen really, but I don’t believe she would know the details about how much money is coming in and where it’s coming from. I just don’t think Teresa would let her that close, if Teresa herself even knew all those details.

          xjrsygirl17733….I have to agree with bobby brooks, I don’t see how Melissa or TB would have access to the type of information that is now under federal investigation. I definately believe that they would talk out of their @sses to anyone who would listen, but they are so full of smoke and mirrors that I doubt they had any real documentation.

          Even if they got their hands on the Guidices tax returns or mortgage information, they would have no idea if income was factually stated or not. It makes more sense to me that Joe did a lot of business dealings on his own and on behalf of Tre. He may have gotten bad advice….I certainly hope they successfully defend themselves!!

          Maybe I am just an eternal optimist at heart. I would be so horrified if what you heard was true and they really did in fact make real attempts to bring Tre and her family down like this. That would have to be the worst kind of human behavior there is. And while I believe that slimy scumy Melissa is more than capable of pulling it off and not losing a moment of sleep at night, I cannot believe that Joe Gorga would participate in this type of activity. If for no other reason than the impact it would have on his nieces and his parents. I have to believe he is human…..underneath all that hairspray!

          • August 27, 2013 at 12:42 PM

              I have to believe that was an unfortunate deal gone bad on his part as opposed to an intentional act. Again, I’m just trying to be realistic. He tried to make himself look good on the show by saying he will support his parents, but deep down he has to be ashamed of himself. He is a lost soul!

                  ITA – he played with other people’s money (in this case his trusting parents!) and didn’t care about it! Sorry but he is an angry, pampered little manchild and whatever he has to do to make himself look better than his sister – he will do. Plus he has a wife who has an agenda based on being rich and famous – their goals dovetail perfectly.

            I had read somewhere that when the senior Gorgas still had their house that Teresa took Melissa’s set of keys to their house cause Melissa had took some important paperwork. Maybe she was stealing info on Tre from the Gorgas’ house so she could give to the hags Monica and Kim G.

            • August 27, 2013 at 8:29 PM

              Tsil did say she had a key to the parents house because that’s were TB office was and she would work there and heat up baby bottles. I am wondering if Teresa gave monies to the parents in order to hide it and have them hold it for her. That would leave a paper trail that Tsil could steal and that would be a big no no in the Feds eyes. I also remember in season 3 Tsil and TB go to dinner at his accountants house and I am almost Monica was there. Ugg can’t find the episode. maybe Fame remembers

          • August 27, 2013 at 4:47 PM

            xjrsygirl17733 is this what you mean? TB use to work for Juicy and he would know some things about business. It is not accessing what the authorities have, it is knowledg of what it is because they are the ones who provided it.

              yes, the gorgas & giudices worked with all the same people along the way & they both know each others business. They were giving info to Monica so she could find the evidence to make a case against the Giudices.

      • August 27, 2013 at 12:12 PM

        Doesn’t matter, if she’s got to bring down Tre she could easily lie about finances to make it look like the giudices were hiding money. Her evil knows no bounds and I would believe she had a hand in all this, it could also be why the feds aren’t investigating the Shetland pony for the same business practices as Joe giudice.

        • bobby brooks
          August 27, 2013 at 12:21 PM

          If they were lies, I don’t believe they would result in charges brought by a Federal Grand Jury. The Feds need something to trigger the investigation, they don’t just go on fishing expeditions.

          I think Melissa is bitchy, manipulative, and self-centered, but I don’t think she’s smart enough to fool the feds into bringing charges against Joe and Teresa based on lies.

          • August 27, 2013 at 12:36 PM

            She may not be but those she fed lies too are well learnt in the US laws. Plus Josie has admitted that juicy ‘taught him the ropes’ so revealing that info and what was taught, if anything, would send those well versed in the laws and with reason to hate, running to the feds with lies and half cocked stories. Plus if the IRS are convinced you’ve hidden money from them, its up to you to prove your innocence, and that’s not easy especially if you’re paid in cash for some events. Josie and meho are in the same condition, with the same ‘liar loans’ as juicy, living in a spec house (and therefore evading taxes) so why aren’t they being investigated and charged? The lauritas too. Why is anyone’s guess but I’m fairly certain they cut a deal. Meho wouldn’t be able to do without her parking lot trysts!

              August 27, 2013 at 12:44 PM

              The reason Joe is charged with Tax Evasion is because he submitted unfiled tax returns with his bankruptcy petition, when questioned by the banruptcy trustee, he admitted that he had not actually filed the taxes for those years.

              Also, who knows who is being investigated, it may be that others don’t have charges brought against them YET. However, all of the Giudice charges can be traced back to that bankruptcy petition that they filed and the fraud allegations by the bankruptcy trustee. If the Giudices hadn’t filed, I am doubting there ever would have been an investigation or charges.

            If a spouse in a divorce proceeding coaches a child to tell authorities the other parent is physically abusive, there will be an investigation and most likely charges will be filed if the story is believable enough. Likewise, if the Spray Tan Puta really had it in for Teresa she could create a living hell. With Joe being sued by his former partner, it would be easy for the STP to fill the ears of opposing counsel with massive lies and partial truths. STP wants to take down Tre. Monica wants vengeance against the Giudices for her client. Throw enough crap on the wall and something will stick. Only real problem is that STP is setting herself up for one massive audit from the IRS. Did she declare the value of the Bentley that Emporio loaned her? If the use of the car is for compensation as a “spokesperson” then the value of that loan needs to be declared. What about all the other crap she gets? Same deal. ‘Da bitch is putting waaaaay too much financial information out there that is sketchy at best. I posted a large listing of Pepe le Poison’s slumlord real estate holdings. Funny how he has all these “holdings” yet he lost his dad’s house to “personal financial advisors”. I have a feeling that the IRS is probably pouring over the Gorga financials as we speak. They are too close to the Guidices to escape scrutiny….

Melissa can fill anyone’s ears with lie or mistruths, it doesn’t really matter. At the end of the day, the feds are following the paper trail. That’s where the charges come from, not Melissa.

      It makes sense. Spray Tan Puta spills confidential information (and makes up crap too) to Monica so she can “take down” the Guidices. Then Monica goes off on some vendetta of her own to get even with Tre and Joe. This whole thing is going to implode on them all. Pepe le Poison will have the IRS up his ass for all of *his* financial misdeeds. And playing contractor without a license? How many properties *does* he actually own? Monica and her little habit of broadcasting client information? How much “free” stuff doe Melis-hepatitis actually declare as income (since neither she nor the giver can claim they are gifts) That karma boomerang is going to hit hard…

    See this whole (I was on morphine all night in the hospital) doesn’t sound right especially if Meho is claiming that her throat closed up. First of morphine can slow down a patient’s breathing that’s why a patient’s vitals have to be checked you know like blood pressure.

            Patch isn’t really a paper per-se. The actual papers here in North Jersey like the Bergen Record, will publish sales after the actual closing. They will list the town, address, selling price and closing date. I doubt a potential buyer announce to the press that they paid full price. We’re left with that Running Sore of a Housewife “leaking” info. Chances are quite good that *if* an actual sale closes, the price will be a lot less that asking.

I will say one thing though, I live about 20 minutes from the town where the Gorgas and Giudices are originally from so I might take a road trip to see some friends there tomorrow to see if I can get some inside info on the how and her shenanigans lol

            It’s not supposed to close/record until the end of the month. Once it records with the county it will be public record.

    I think Fame is right, the phone call to Mike will be shown at the Posche 2 Grand Opening.

    Of course it has to be all tied up neatly and pinned on Teresa – this is Bravo. I wasn’t sure the brawl would be shown, considering the charges and such but now that I think about it, Teresa said on WWHL there were 2 fights this season. I wouldn’t doubt if Bravo stretches the fight out over 3 episodes for the ratings boost. Even if they only show the footage while JTG was held outside (45 minutes) before the fight, there’s still plenty of time to bring up and flash back to the phone call with Mike, implicating Teresa.

    Every scene with Jan and/or Penny has involved Teresa and Kim D. with the exception of TSIL’s book lunch. All the scenes edited and twisted to seed the notion that Teresa is the mastermind behind the cheating rumors and the final showdown to end where else but Kim D.’s Posche 2 Grand Opening.

    When the brawl took place – I was thrilled that it didn’t revolve around Teresa. I should have known Bravo would label Teresa as the cause of it. You know, TB & TSIL at least had a legit reason for a confrontation but Chris and Jac claiming JTG was texting about Nick was BS. This isn’t the first time Jac’s inserted herself into a situation that was none of her business. I think they were all cracking under the pressure of their own self-inflicted legal/ money issues but after a few drinks, what was supposed to be a filmed heated conversation turned into a brawl.

    I still think the cast making up is a charade. Everyone has their own products and agendas to push, Bravo included, and they all want a paycheck. I do believe there were some genuine moments shared, but mostly they were just good employees. If memory serves, the only news of any of them together after filming stopped was at Teresa’s birthday party which TSIL and TB attended. I don’t remember the kids being together between the end of filming and the indictment – which was the whole summer. TSIL posted an instagram pic of Gia & Antonia at cheerleading practice that Gia sent her in June but I haven’t seen anything outside that, not even before or after the girl’s communions. It makes me wonder what happened between them after the indictment that spurred the play dates again. Meanwhile, Lysa is still trying to prove Teresa and Penny are friends?

    wasn’t melissa all giddy when her sisters told her her first season that they had gone to see a medium and their dad said,melissa was going to be ‘great’ one day or something like that?
    i think she wasnt ‘feeling’ the medium this time because she didnt hear what she wanted to hear…smh

    • August 27, 2013 at 1:42 PM

      1. Why is Teresa expected to forgive everyone talking about her marriage, kids, and businesses, and Melissa contacting Danielle which she admitted? Teresa didn’t make a story line over it and drag it out or her magazine covers

      2. They are going tit for tat again… Melissa talking about her new song on iTunes at the same time going to the VMAs trying to make it seem like the two are somehow related.. Then teresa posts something about Gia tell her mom she’s silly for skipping it..someone tweets trying to stir pot between them (just as medium said) and teresa says bravo invited all housewives. ..melissa and Joey surprised Melissa’s sisters and brought them

      Someone asks Jac if all housewives were invited and she says no.. Just Ashlee is going for her job

      So either bravo invited a select few or someone is co fused but in Melissa’s blog she decided to say thanks Johnny Wright for vma tickets

      Anyways my ramble is over.

      • August 27, 2013 at 4:16 PM

        Fame.. Where can we submit questions for the reunion? I heard Andy is asking for some. Facebook page? Bravo site?

        He better ask melissa why she lied on WWHL about her nose and lips

        Little Bear, I read somewhere (don’t remember where) that Johnny Wright bought the gorga mansion and I also read she begged for tickets to VMA

    Bravo had a blog up this morning. I can’t remember what it was titled, but it had something to do with the “karma comment”, and not written by any of the housewives. Well, now it’s gone! And every one of the comments were saying that Tre’s comment was not about Jac and her son. I had left a couple of comments as well. I wonder if they took it down because they didn’t get the response they wanted….

    • August 27, 2013 at 5:00 PM

      It’s still there and so is the poll (Teresa is in the lead)

      • August 27, 2013 at 5:12 PM

        what is Teresa in lead of

        • August 27, 2013 at 9:15 PM

          There is a poll on bravo re: the Karma comment and if Teresa was innocent and Jac made a big deal out of it, Teresa is leading. If you haven’t voted, please do as it appears they aren’t rigging this pole.

    Hey everyone! I know I haven’t posted in a while, been kind of busy and don’t have the internet at home and my phone is basically useless but I can still read the posts and keep up. I soooo wanted to post yesterday but couldn’t.
    First off, Jeannie you have my condolences regarding your mom, sending you (((((BIG HUGS)))))!!!
    And that’s coming from a 5’9” 250# women with size DDD breasts, so you should feel it straight to your backbone!
    Praying for you through this trying moment in your life.
    Adiolunatic, congrats on the coming of your new grandchild, we will keep your daughter in our prayers.
    And Saddle_River_NJ, you had me in stitches in the previous article, I couldn’t stop laughing, damn near pissed my pants! You guys on Fame have some really great posts, old posters and new ones, I enjoy you all.
    About the show, last week I only caught parts because company dropped by and I was whipping up some grub. This week I said I wasn’t going to watch, caught the repeat show at 11:00PM and wished I hadn’t. Between Melissa and Jax it was truly sickening the way they twist shit around. And why is Jax trying to bring up this karma thing again? Didn’t she say something like this before that Dina told Teresa Nicolas’s Autism was karma for all the bad things she had done? I know I read that somewhere on here. My highlight was Millania with the chuckalina quote. I love this kid!
    With all that’s going on with Teresa I have been a little down it the dumps about it and ROLies, Out Of Touch, and Not US rag mags putting all the negativity out there doesn’t help matters.
    I am still in Teresa’s corner, I will keep her family is in my prayers also. I was drawn to Teresa because she believes in family and it exudes through filming of the show despite what others may say about her. She has that certain “ je ne sais quoi” and the other cast members don’t. I have never had any celebrity or famous person touch me in such way where I cared about them and their family and I don’t think it’s a stretch in my imagination to like her.
    People always ask my kids if they are part Italian because of how they describe our family. Good friends, good food and good wine! That’s my motto. I swear I was a fat Italian peasant woman that was partial to hairy men in my past life, lol.
    We are a loud, passionate and loving bunch. Even at get togethers, we will argue and cuss each other out only to call the next day and say, so………, what are you doing today? Phone calls always end in “I love you”. There isn’t a day that goes by without me saying it to my children and family.
    So I’m going to keep up the good fight for Tre whether she quits the show or not, whether she goes to jail or not, it doesn’t matter. I’ll just have to stuff sausage and peppers, bread, cheese and a bottle of wine between my ample breasts to sneak past the guards during her visits.
    (((((LOVE YOU FAME-BILY!!!!)))))

      Love you too, Enga!

      I’m with you regarding T. When the news first broke of the indictments – I’ll be honest, I didn’t know how I felt about it. But like you, there is something about that woman that makes me root for her. I’ve never felt so strongly about someone on television before, but I love a fighter.

      I don’t have enough boobage to help you into the jail with the sausage and peppers, but I can cause a diversion while you slip in with the goods 🙂

      Hello everyone,
      I am a first time poster here, but I have been reading for quite some time now. I am so glad for this site though because if people really want to know the truth they can come hear and find it. And black enga I totally agree with you about Teresa, there is just something about her. I first saw her on Celebrity apprentice and I just loved her. Shortly after that they were showing reruns of RHoNJ so I was able to catch up and learn more about her. I was so appalled at how her brother and SIL treated her and how all eventually ganged up on her that I wanted to jump through the screen and shake them all up. And now to read this latest of how Bravo could end this season just makes me sick. I hope somehow this truth about Bravo and the others gets to the rest of the public to see what scums they really are. Thanks for this site. Hope all have a great day!!

    Is that a horse whisperer on the next episode? No wonder TSIL is playing sick. She doen’t want a saddle on her back and tied up in the barn….or maybe she does lol

    One of the things bugging me about this season is Teresa’s screen time is small in comparison to the Manzos and Gorgas. I don’t really care about Caroline’s new house, all Melissa talks about IS Teresa BUT the thing that gets me is her brother is getting equal screen time to the women so in effect, a third if the show is heresay regarding Teresa then Teresa being surrounded by clingons when she’s trying to wriggle free of the crap.

    I want a show about housewives, not husbands.

    NBC news just reported that Teresa and Joe were with a large group of people at Shipbottom beach that created a raucous over paying for beach tags. “Witnesses” say they were screaming profanities at the poor beach tag girl to the point where she was crying and left!

    This sounds completely fabricated. Does anyone know where Teresa was today? Aren’t the kids in school?

    Can someone speculate as to what TB meant when he said to Joe Giudice “you made me a bum, just like you”, after the fight at Lake George.

    This video was uploaded on 2011, why is she making the comment of scamming ppl, and that Teresa can’t even afford the down payment! she seems very in the know at the time, no?

  48. August 28, 2013 at 3:45 AM

    oh my god, this is why i stopped watching the show, its disgusting and drives me crazy,a;ways teresa always, common.
    and little joe grow some balls and open your eyes for F sake, none of those housewives were accused of cheating so why your meho? cant u see there is something wrong with that pic? no? so stop crying and maybe, just maybe that will help u to see some things? take your eyes out of mehos ass and ull see there is something wrong with your marriage.

    i dont even want to see the reunion, i know they gonna blame tre for everything and i think its gonna be even worse than it was last season, so im done.

    oh and that jac, jeas she needs some help, real help, not plastic fantastic help lol, she is so plastic that she cant even show emotions anymore.
