Monica Chacon, Kim G, Kim Hiza and Tom Murro’s Connection to the Gorgas and Wakiles and to Each Other
Kim G and Monica Chacon sat at a table with Kathy, Melissa and Melissa’s sisters at the Posche fashion show (PFS) in season 3 episode 2 (photos below). This was at the very beginning of the Gorgas’ and Wakiles’ first season – how did they get so close to Kim G so quickly? Because they had known her for a while, although earlier in the same episode Melissa and Kathy pretended to have met her for the first time at the Posche boutique (first photo below), where Kim G said to them about Teresa, “She doesn’t know who she’s messing with,” and neither of them defended Teresa or were shocked by the statement.
When Teresa saw Kim G sit down at Melissa’s table at the PFS, she asked Jacqueline and Caroline: “Why is Kim G talking to my sister-in-law? It’s just weird that my sister-in-law’s friends with her.”
In the same episode (season 3 episode 2), before the PFS, Kim G came over to Melissa’s home (photo below), and they went clubbing on Halloween, Kathy included – Melissa and Kathy talked smack about Teresa with Kim G the entire time.
Bob and Kim Hiza are mortgage brokers who were credited in season 3 as being the Gorgas’ accountants, but in reality Bob Hiza co-owns with Joe Gorga at least 10 low-end properties in Paterson, NJ.
The Gorgas and Wakiles dined with the Hizas in their home during season 3 episode 6, at which time they talked about the Giudices’ bankruptcy – the Hizas snarked on their impending remediation auction and called Teresa “rude,” while Kathy commented on Teresa’s shopping habits by saying, “Mindless spending will catch up with you eventually.”
Kim Hiza, Kim G and Monica Chacon attended the Gorgas’ 2010 Christmas party in season 3 episode 10 (photos below). The producers invited Monica and Kim G unbeknownst to the Giudices but Melissa was fully aware that they would be attending, even though she feigned knowing Monica at the time. Teresa became upset that Monica was there because earlier that day she had a confrontation with her at the courthouse during a break in a fraud case that Juicy’s former business partner had filed against him.
“Teresa’s bankruptcy was exposed by Danielle at the 1st Posche fashion show when she said Teresa’s house was in foreclosure (Melissa, Kim G or Monica fed Danielle this information, which was a lie). After that episode aired, the wave of articles on the web and in the magazines started. Monica Chacon, whose husband was the lawyer representing Joe Giudice’s partner, fed a lot of dirt to Kim G; she, in turn, fed it to Danielle and the bloggers. When they were ready to film season 3, Teresa was forced to talk about it because the producers invited Monica to the 2nd Posche Fashion show (season 3 episode 2 – she sat with Melissa and her sisters) and the Gorgas’ Christmas party (season 3 episode 10 – she came with Kim G). Remember when Monica introduced herself to Melissa and Kathy as the lawyer suing Teresa. Let’s not forget, the Wakiles and the Gorgas were asked to be on the show if they would address Teresa’s personnel finances.” [Lee, May 15, 2012, AllAboutTRH.com]
“We [Melissa and I] did never meet; however, it was because I wouldn’t allow that to happen. She wanted to film during season 2, and she thought it would be a good way to get back at Teresa. And I said I wanted absolutely nothing to do with that; however, I would forward all her e-mails, which were a lot, to the producers, which I did. Which is how, after two seasons of her being behind the scenes — on camera but behind the scenes — she all the sudden became a person of interest and that’s how she landed on the show. Um, I think that it would be good for her to just come clean. I wanted nothing to do with what she wanted to do to Teresa. It’s not my place. I don’t play with that. Karma has a return policy and it isn’t an exchange.” [Danielle Staub, WWHL, September 9, 2013]
No matter how intelligent you try to come across in your blogs, I cannot get over how you allow other people to dog and disrespect your family, mainly Teresa & her husband (season 3 episode 6, dinner at the Hizas’). First, in Poshe you allowed Kim to talk about Teresa and didn’t defend your cousin, and then again in last night’s episode you sat by idly as the Hizas talked about Teresa and her problems – only her brother had the decency to defend the honor of his family, while you and Melissa just sat there complacently while these two business associates/”friends” tried to snicker about the Guidice’s personal affairs. Many viewers have made this observation and I will reiterate it too – you and Melissa are both probably great women in your own right. But neither of you are doing yourselves favors by trashing your family on TV – just makes you look bad. Looks bad in your blogs too. Keep the skeletons in your closet – and when in public, put on good face about your family. We all have family problems, all of us, but I would never allow strangers or business associates to dog my family in front of my face like that – makes YOU look bad, not the Giudices.

The worst thing about Melissa is that she’s dumb in a boring way, not a funny way (aside from the “wench like me” line, which was even funnier because she sang it!). Melissa clearly needs this conflict to continue if she wants a storyline, though, and she drives me crazy when she fusses that Teresa doesn’t care, insists Joe get it sorted out, and then rebuffs any apologies. Maybe she wants Teresa to apologize while hooked to a polygraph. The only solution she desires is unconditional acceptance of her, and that won’t work either. Sometimes there’s only room for one tacky bitch per family, and Teresa got there first. Melissa will have to settle for being the tacky bitch-in-waiting. Maybe Kim Hiza didn’t need a plate of food because she feasts on the miseries of others? [foucault, TWP, June 20, 2011]
