Mohegan Sun Falsely Advertises Melissa Gorga’s “Free Signing Event” – You Must Purchase Her Book to Gain Entry to Signing Line

September 12, 2013

“I just found a website, NovelRank.com. Pre-sale orders from Amazon of Melissa’s book, Love Italian Style, as of September 13, 2013 (both hardcover and kindle editions) total 244 copies. Obviously, it’s bound to be a NYTimes bestseller!” – Maj, September 13, 2013, Fame-Whorgas

According to NovelRank.com, on Amazon as of September 15, 2013, Caroline Manzo has sold 612 copies of her book, Let Me Tell You Something, and Teresa Giudice has sold 424 copies of her latest cookbook, Fabulicious!: On the Grill (both hardcover and kindle editions).

“I attend Rowan University in NJ right by Philadelphia. We have a Barnes & Noble on campus as our bookstore and they have been promoting Melissa Gorga’s book for weeks now. She is coming to sign on September 26th. Her book was listed as 20% off about a week ago when I was in there. Keep in mind this is a college book store, and almost as soon as you walk in, there is a display of her books. Why are they catering this book to us? Most of the college population on campus that use the book store are not married or thinking about marriage anytime soon. I will most definitely not attend this ‘signing’ because I believe we will have to purchase her book.”- North Jerz Girl, September 15, 2013, Fame-Whorgas

A Reality Check event at Mohegan Sun is advertising Melissa Gorga’s book signing on September 20, 2013, as a “free signing event;” however, a description of the event states that to gain entry to the signing line, you must have a bracelet, and to get the bracelet, you must purchase her book (the same was true when Caroline Manzo had her book signing at Mohegan Sun). So it isn’t a free signing event after all.

s5 212 c

From their website:

YOU’RE INVITED-FREE EVENT!
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20TH
The Shops at Mohegan Sun
9:00PM – Free Signing Event *

Things are about to get spicy when Melissa Gorga, star of the hit Bravo TV show The Real Housewives of New Jersey, joins Mohegan Sun for a Reality Check event, signing her new steamy book, Love Italian Style, for fans.

* Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to time restrictions, signing personalization or personal photos for signing are prohibited. Melissa Gorga will only be signing her book, Love Italian Style. This event is bracelet-only. To receive bracelets, guests must purchase her book, Love Italian Style, at Spin Street. Books will be for sale starting at 10:00 AM on the day of the event. One bracelet per purchase. A limited amount of bracelets and books available. Participants must have a bracelet in order to gain entry into the signing line.

Last year, on October 16, 2012, Melissa Gorga appeared at Mohegan Sun as part of their 16-year anniversary celebration (video below). It was billed as a free Q&A and signing of her CDs.

In the past, Joe and Melissa hosted “meet and greets,” charging their fans around $70 each for an inexpensive dinner in addition to the price of her single on CD for signing.

For example, on January 22, 2012, Melissa and Joe hosted a meet and greet at Cafe Buonaros in Naperville, IL, and charged $67.62 per person (which included a $2.72 handling fee) for the event plus $10 for a CD of “On Display” for signing:

Meet and greet Melissa and Joe Gorga in Naperville, IL on January 22, 2012,  Melissa will be signing CD’s of her hit song “On Display” and both Melissa and Joe will be taking pictures and meeting their fans! Ticket price includes: Salad, an appetizer of Bruschetta and family-style Chicken Marley, and Baked Spaghetti, 2 glasses of wine and Italian Ice for dessert. All attendees will receive a gift bag. Melissa’s hit single “On Display” will be available for sale for $10.

    I’ll bet you that Mohegan Sun hands out “free” books to get a “bracelet” to get an autograph.

    They need to sponsor who they “promote”.

    Who the heck wants Messy’s autograph?

    Who wants to go through all that trouble just to meet some F-list celebrity?
    And why even label it “free” if you have to make a purchase at some random book store?

      Because no one is buying her piece of shit book. Having the book about love and relationship but without Umpa Lumpa. She is saying I’m open for the first big dig with money that comes by. She can’t stand being with him.

    Girl bye bye. Does anyone remember Missy talking mad shit about Teresa’s “products” and them being crap? According to Melissa shes never going to a proper company to endorse any of her products. I wonder what melissa had to say about Teresa’s wine being available now at the Giants Stadium, and her haircare line sponsoring a Live and Style event? Aside from Melissa and Joe being superbly stupid and arrogant- they’re thirsty for a piece of Teresa’s success. Who do you think is going to buy that piece of shit book? Discounting those given away and purchased by Joey, her mother and sisters, and her very few “friends” I doubt it sells five thousand copies.

    • MonkeyFighting
      September 13, 2013 at 8:18 AM

      Hey Andrea spot on! The proof of Melissa’s jealousy is this season like epi 3,4,5 (not sure but the one w the fight & Joes black hair debacle) she said a comment about Tre having SO MANY products blah blah blah…. Well Looky here, she’s now a fitness guru, author, home decor along w her singing career…. Looking back now that epi spoke volumes to me! I’m sorry , but anyone who likes this fraud makes me want to slap them back to reality… It’s not about teams , it’s about what is RIGHT VS LIES! I’m so fed up w these GorgaGarbageGoons! Enough already!!
      Also , I play ALOT @ Mohegan (a lot ) and I’m so tempted to call customer service to say WTF? They actually sent me an invite to upcoming events but Hella No will I ever go there when that POS is there!!! I would get arrested for slapping her or saying something … Esp when I’m going to Penny’s grand opening the next night. I would love to get a book and ask her to sign it to Penny!
      Fame, seriously I have most respect for you & your blog!!! This is one of the BEST truthful blogs out there!! We all totally appreciate all your hard work!!!!! I wish the world read this site & finally people will know what scum Melissa really is!! Thanks again!!!

        September 13, 2013 at 9:40 AM

        So did Penny turn on Teresa? On a preview it show Penny saying its your sister behind it.

        • September 13, 2013 at 9:46 AM

          “FYI, ‘your sister’ was in reference to question about who invited @PDKhair to Milania Launch! #RHONJ #TeamTeresa” – Faux Reality Ent (‏@FauxRealityE), September 10, 2013, Twitter

          “When I was asked who invited me to the Milania Launch party, I responded ‘your sister.’ I was told that Joe and Melissa were calling me a stalker even though they knew that Production was controlling my appearances.” – Penny Drosso Karagiorgis, September 9, 2013, FauxRealityEntertainment

          Also from Penny’s blog at FauxRealityEntertainment.com, the Gorgas and Wakiles tried to make a deal with her husband John, promising Penny more screen time next season (as if the Gorgas and Wakiles have that kind of power with producers) if Penny and John “agreed to their demands,” which would be to turn on Teresa and accuse her of masterminding the reveal of Melissa’s infidelity:

          “Shortly after my meeting with Joe and Melissa at Chakra, Joe and Rich Wakile showed up at my husband’s business to ‘talk man to man.’ They tried to entice my husband into ‘giving me more air time in future seasons by filming with their wives’ if I agreed to their demands.” – Penny Drosso Karagiorgis, September 9, 2013, FauxRealityEntertainment

          A friend of Penny and John, present at the grand opening of Posche 2, where John was assaulted, said: “Johnny’s sole purpose [in coming to the event] was to bury the hatchet. Rich Wakile and Joe Gorga went to Johnny’s place and agreed on that. But Joe kept pushing the issue [about who was giving him information] at the event, and when Johnny turned to talk to Teresa, that’s when Joe rushed him. Joe never swung, but Johnny took him down to the ground and then security jumped in.”

          More here:

          https://famewhorgas.wordpress.com/2013/09/09/teresa-giudice-did-not-spread-the-cheating-rumors-about-melissa-gorga-she-listened-to-what-penny-drossos-karagiorgis-had-to-say-about-brian-bulldog-bowen/

          Until we see the entire clip on Sunday, we won’t know how it was edited. Producers can slice and dice to make it appear that Penny is saying, “it was your sister,” to one question when it was actually a different question.

          I am concerned about frankenbyting. And, I will be reading here to see what happens, because I will be damned if I watch any show with the Manzos or Gorgas ever again. After what the Don tried to do to Ms. SH, I will not watch anything she is on ever again. Sorry Juicy and Tre.

          • September 13, 2013 at 2:46 PM

            Hi Elemcee! I watched the preview on Bravo’s website. The frankenbyting is horrible with Penny, TB and TSIL. I’m not going to watch the show because I know it’s a “hoax” to get the viewers against Tre. Sorry, even if Tre was behind the cheating allegations it would not change my view of TB or TSIL. I would think, “finally! Tre is accused of something she really did! Alright!”. TB is just a despicable, disgusting human being! What did Don try to do to Ms. SH? I missed that news.

            • elemcee
              September 14, 2013 at 1:49 AM

              I agree, CeeeSeee. I am starting to wish T would do half of the things she is accused of. Her “family” deserves it, at this point.

              It appears that the Manzos are trying to get the blog, Stoopid Housewives, pulled down for “copyright violations”, something about rights to photos. There is a lawsuit pending. Then one of the Manzo triplet girls tweeted Ms. SH’s real name. Then the day the blog was pulled down Chucky tweeted “It’s a good day”. So, although Ms. SH is not saying specifically what happened, this is what her readers have pieced together.

              I think it is truly pathetic that the First Amendment means so little in reality. It is a good thing Chucky is so damn ugly, cuz apparently she could not have handled rumors in high school since she cannot handle some snark on a blog. But, TSIL has made it very clear rumors are only started about exotic beauties, so that worked out okay for Chucky. Hags.

              Damn, I am mean this week.

              • September 14, 2013 at 2:05 AM

                Ohhh…. Thanks for replying. I was wondering what was up with SH. I always take it that there is some truth to what is being blogged about them when they get “upset”! It’s ok for the Don to straight up lie about Tre in her blog but when her life is “violated” she can’t take it!

          Does anyone have any predictions HOW season 5 will end?…… Every week Bravo is changing stuff and with bits and pieces about the reunion, I still can`t guess how they will leave it. I Def know now they were not in a better place as promised?

          • Grand-Beth
            September 13, 2013 at 9:07 PM

            I ask because I quit watching after the 2nd episode when I saw the previews for full of sh*t and read posts here to keep up.

      • September 13, 2013 at 4:30 PM

        I think many people are reading it. Many don’t post. I seldom post but am an avid reader. This is were I know the information is true and IMO’s are spot on. I read 90-95 percent of posts. It use to be 100% but there are so many now. 🙂

        • September 14, 2013 at 1:20 AM

          If it’s anything like TSIL’s appearance at a liquor store here on LI a few years ago (when she was at the alleged “height” of her F-list popularity), there will be tumbleweeds in the parking lot. I drove by it on my way home from work about an hour after her scheduled arrival — nothing. Read later on that she was FOUR HOURS late due to misjudging LIE traffic on a Friday. Pix released by her camp made it look like hundreds of fans happily waited for her to arrive, but it was staged and cropped.

      September 13, 2013 at 12:13 PM

      The book is 10,526 in books on Amazon. It is 81 in Self-Help Marriage. Not exactly New York Times bestseller fodder yet. We shall see. I hate to wish failure on someone, so I keep trying to convince myself that is not what I am doing…

      • September 13, 2013 at 2:51 PM

        You know, I’m like that, too. Now I did wish Bethenny F.’s talk show tanks because Bethenny doesn’t really need the income. Her stint as a HW paid off really, really well for her. TSIL and TB do need the money but they worked overtime trying to bring Tre down. So, for Tre’s sake I hope they make enough to pay a couple of months rent or pay off one of the loan sharks they borrowed from!

        Sadly it’s moved up. Now #36 in marriage #50 in self help relationships #83 in women/bios. 4380 in all books

        • September 14, 2013 at 1:25 AM

          Those categories are meaningless — I took a course on writing e-books and it explained exactly how to manipulate those rankings by drilling down into more and more specific labels to make your book appear to be a higher ranking than it really is. There’s a team of PR people buying up those books to give away at events or store in a warehouse. Those rankings also do not count returned books — so another ploy is to buy up books in bulk to artifically inflate the numbers, just to return them shortly thereafter.

              Anytime! I’m glad that I had something to share to help clarify the so-called strategy of TSIL’s team. I love reading this blog since I have long given up on actually watching and giving Bravo anything resembling ratings.

    I wonder if anyone has ever said anything honest to her @ events. I wonder that about Kathy too. Someone paying and waiting in line to give their 2 cents is a little coocoo for coco puffs-and I always thought that’s where their bad attitude towards Teresa’s fan came from. It would be a little off but funny at the same time. Melissa needs to hear the truth.

            Why does tragedy keep happening to the Jersey shore? It doesn’t seem fair. My heart goes out to the businesses & families.

            There are no tweets from The Trashy Trollop in the days leading up to Gino’s Birthday about a party and there are none after either these are all her tweets from today so I suspect she’ll imply the red sox game was just for Gino’s Birthday…

          • September 13, 2013 at 2:57 PM

            That is confusing. Does momma Marco mean she’s happy that TSIL celebrated at the US weekly party? Maybe momma Lysa held a birthday party for Gino while his parents were at an event? Or, maybe TSIL celebrated Gino’s birthday the night before she left for the US weekly party? If that’s the case why not just have a celebration on his birthday?

    And, Melissa still hasn’t acknowledged / congratulated her sister for landing a role in a Broadway show. After all the promotion that her sister did of Melissa, and nothing from Melissa! Even Caroline Manzo congratulated Mel’s sister.

    But, the sister will probably continue to promote Mel, because obviously, Mel is the princess in the family and it seems to me that she believes she is the only one worthy of attention and praise.

      Music signings are the same. You have to buy a CD. Of course, there is more than one song on the CD. I have heard of fans that have five or six CDs, all the same from one group, because they went to five or six signings for the same album.

    • GreedisNotgood
      September 13, 2013 at 3:36 PM

      This is not always true! I’ve gone to book signings where I have brought my own copy of the book for the author to sign and did not pay a cent! I just had to stand in line. I’ve done this at small book shops and at Barnes & Noble. You may just have to buy the book at some, but not always- nor is every author out to get a crazy profit from fans of their work(with the whole outrageous amts to buy a bracelet & this and that…); hence, I already had my own copy to get signed. Greediness is so unattractive…
      This is a complete waste in my opinion to even consider doing for MG. She has a completely distorted view of what a woman, wife, mother, friend, daughter, sister, neighbor, Christian/Catholic human being should have as a moral compass, and I truly hope her children will not be scarred from this ridiculousness she is engaging in along with her husband. What kind of role models are they proving to be for their own children to work out issues if they were to have a falling out? Are they going to tell them this whole show was scripted to cover themselves? Continue to blame Tre and everyone else? It’s a sad shame.

  18. September 13, 2013 at 10:42 AM

    At Bravo’s site the have a complete video of Penny telling Joe and Melissa that Teresa was the one who started Penny on her rumor spreading spree. It’s all there in black and white. I have always said what a piece of shit this woman is. She campaigned hard to get on this show and in the end for her fifteen min. she throws Teresa under the bus and rolls her over with it. I seriously hate this show and will never give it another moment of my time. Ever. I will just enjoy this blog like I have always done since it’s inception. Done. finito.

        IF I don’t see their faces when they (any cast member) are “talking” in a scene that is key to the storyline conversation, then I really discount what was said because it is likely dubbed in!

      September 13, 2013 at 11:20 AM

      I’m still up in the air about this – Watch TB’s smirky grin as he turns to TSIL (at the 24 second mark) after Penny says I don’t know. For someone just finding out that his sister is spreading these rumors – shouldn’t he be shocked, surprised, sad but instead he’s grinning?

      • September 13, 2013 at 11:32 AM

        Agree, I am going to see how this plays out. We know these stories have been out there a long time. Her former friends and associates confirm them.I do not believe they were made up by Teresa for one minute. Too many people have stated the same stories. Even if Teresa did confront Penny and John, she did not start the rumors. Also, why be mad at Teresa, when it was obvious Penny, John, Pete Giudice, Jan and Bryan were the ones tweeting about it.

        • September 13, 2013 at 11:36 AM

          Here is what Penny said:.
          On February 28, 2013 I met Joe and Melissa at Chakra in Paramus to discuss the cheating issues at their request. We talked for hours. They tried to shut down any discussion about Melissa’s cheating and tried to focus on who asked me to reveal the cheating. I refused their demands to implicate Teresa. We ended the dinner by agreeing to disagree but on relatively good terms.

          • Calypso
            September 13, 2013 at 12:05 PM

            Another oddity – Why would TB & TSIL meet with Penny if just prior they agreed to confront her together and united with Teresa to end it once and for all?

            It was arranged so that Penny was at the Milania launch so that they could so the same thing but of course they still blamed Teresa. They go to Arizona and agree to confront her again with Teresa, but they decide to go without Teresa? Why – so that Teresa could be blamed again?

              You have to remember that this particular meeting was held BEFORE they went on the spa trip. So, if Penny said it was Teresa, why the hell all the chummy chummy at the spa? Which now makes me think Penny isn’t talking about Teresa other than when she says “your sister” she was answering the “Who invited Jan to the Milania party?” I don’t know…I’m so frggin’ confused! LOL

      • Calypso
        September 13, 2013 at 11:52 AM

        Joe’s expressions don’t seem to be adding up. Look at Joe’s eyes when Penny says “it was your sister” he looks shocked and surprised or maybe hurt. Then he’s not shocked or hurt but grinning at the 24 second mark when Penny says “I don’t know”. His expression and eyes are back to concerned throughout the rest of the scene until off camera JTG comes up, then Penny cracks a smile. It’s odd and seems out of sequence. TB isn’t shown asking “why and Penny isn’t shown saying “I don’t know” and then later TB isn’t shown saying “JTG the one behind all those tweets” but it shows Penny answering “yeah”.

        Penny better do something to remedy the situation. She and Johnny are being set up as the biggest douchebags in Housewifeland. They don’t have Bravo contracts filling their pockets – just Andy Cohen make them look like fools. And – they actually are fools. All of these people who supposedly “got the goods” on Melissa are looking like bigger idiots everyday. Bravo and the Pustular Princess are trashing their names every day and they just sit back and take it. I can’t wait to see them re-edit the fight at Moxie salon to make it look like Johhny was the instigator. And Penny is looking more and more like some desperate, meddling bitch. And Lil’ Missy ends up like a doe eyed victim again…

        • September 13, 2013 at 3:41 PM

          Since Penny said she waited a long time to be called into the salon – the producers must of had a lot of “dialog” to capture before her scene. This will be an interesting episode to dissect because there will likely be too many inconsistencies in the various parts that are needed to turn this into the Teresa really is behind all those horrible rumors.

        • September 13, 2013 at 5:15 PM

            Hmmmm… I’ll have to think about that. I have a bit of an idea but I’ll have to work on it. My inspiration is coming from an incident that happened to me as a child. We had “career day” when I was in grammar school. Parents came in and gave little presentations as to what their job was. Afterwards, we went back to our classroom and my teacher started asking each of us to stand and tell the class what we wanted to be when we grew up. I was thinking so hard of all the grownups I knew and what they did and what their job was called. Jimmy S. stood up and said he wanted to be an astronaut. Feh. Too cold in place I thought. Stephanie B. stood up and said she wanted to be a nurse. A nurse? I hated hospitals. I was next! I racked my brain for the person who did the funnest things. The person who really seemed to enjoy what they did. It was my grandmother of course. But I had to remember they called what she did. I had heard people call her a name before but I wasn’t sure if it was right. The teacher called for me to stand and tell the class what I wanted to be when I grew up. I stood and in my best speaking voice announced “A Drunken Socialite!” True story and it did end up landing me in the principals office yet again…

For God’s sake – the “admission” was not even filmed at the same point was the question the Venereal Vixen asked. The background audio is at a completely different level and is different. Shit – they could splice anything after the question. Bravo can definitely go fuck themselves at this point. I’ll watch to the end of this season just to “finish it up” and I am completely done.

    I have not seen this new “complete” video with Penny yet so I cannot comment on the actual scenes.

    However, I must say we must all remember the editing done at the PFS – remember how it was shown out of sequence and there was “conversation” and talk overs implying those were words being said at that very moment when in fact they were dubbed in. Remember the changing plates? Not many people caught on until others did and wrote about it. Then everyone began having their AHA moment.

    We all have been educated on how we are being manipulated. I will watch the video and see what the context is being “contrived” – because I would bet my life it is knowing what Bravo is capable of – and then I will watch the show in its entirety and then wait to see what Penny says in her blog. And knowing what we know, I will bet she will have plenty to say. Then, and only then, will I make a decision on what I believe really has happened. To me, this has producers’ editing We also need to keep in mind producers have had to change the storyline several times to wrap this all up into a nice package for the mass audience appeal. Fame has told us time and again the majority do not know about all of this crap. They swallow only the garbage Bravo feeds them on Sunday nights and base their judgement solely on that. And that is exactly what Bravo is banking on.

      I agree Jeannie, I reacted before I had my 1st soda and rewatched, it’s definitely a poor editing job. But it is very damning against Teresa. It totally contradicts what Penny said in her blog.

      PS — Faux is indicating on Twitter that Bravo is pressuring her to take down info (I’m assuming Penny’s blog) — asswipes.

        Exactl mzjules! “It totally contradicticts what Penny said in her blog.” And that is why Bravo released this video in advance – to do damage control.

        Everyone remember E! and EOnline is owned by NBC – and is used to spin whatever NBC needs it to. I don’t believe that editing job for one minute.

        And, for sure, now that Faux appears to being strong armed, this adds more to the evidence that we are all being manipulated.

        Penny was blogging about what really happened and the true sequence of events and when what was said and in exactly what context (this is a biggie) and Bravo doesn’t want us to know it.

          There is precious little Bravo can really do. A blogger can post pretty much anything. Instructions on making a nuclear bomb – no problem. Faux (or Fame) can post anything they want to unless they are contractually prevented from doing so. There is no law against the truth and there is also that teeny little thing called Free Speech. So Bravo wants to prevent Faux and Penny from exercising their First Amendment rights? Really???

              That could be the sticky part. If Penny signed anything with Bravo – it might be in the fine print that she can’t discuss her participation in any Bravo production in any venue. At this point its moot for anything already posted. Like the Gonorrheal Gorgon’s banshee singing, copies have been made and saved. I am also beginning to care less and less what happens. Unless some crazed lunatic goes all Carrie on The Toms River Slut so it goes truly mainstream, nothing will change. Tre gets crucified and the Bitch and the Dwarf get away with it.

        • September 13, 2013 at 5:26 PM

          Does anyone else find it odd that when Penny showed her phone, TSIL and TB both immediately recognized Tre’s # without having to check their cell phones to confirm. Most people I know, not all and not me, rely on speed dial anymore. If my hubby or daughter didn’t have their phones they would not know how to call me as they don’t memorize numbers like we did in days gone by. I personally refuse to use speed dial.

            If you listen closely, when Penny says “wan’t me to show you?” and turns toward the bar, it sounds like Meho says “it’s her sister in law”

            They never say it is Tre, they just imply it. I could be wrong but I think they’re talking about Kim D.

    i mean, are people that freaking dumb to believe this BS? First of all, there is a HUMONGOUS difference between :

    1. Teresa made up vicious lies about TSIL that she is a cheater and cheated with her ex bryan, and also her ex anthony. then she went on a crazy spree spreading the lies about TSIL by i guess making fake accounts in bryan’s and anthony’s name on twitter to constantly tweet detailed tid bits of made up vicious cheating lies or somehow convinced these men to spread fake cheating lies about her SIL, oh, and she also got penny to constantly tweet about made up lies and got her on the show to bring out fake lies and rumors……..

    and

    2. Cheating rumors are not lies unless the men that claim they slept with her while she was married are lying and when teresa got wind of what TSIL did, she wanted her brother to know and lord knows she cant go to her brother and tell him herself whats being said because she learned her lesson the last time, remember the whole “gold digger rumor” she tried to tell her mongoloid brother about? yeah, that worked out really well for her, so sure, penny is part of the group saying TSIL did these things and teresa wants penny to tell her brother……ummmm….if i had a bro and found out his wife was the biggest skank in town, and was giving dudes head in parking lots, id want him to know too!

    bottom line: Teresa DID NOT make up the cheating rumors. She may have helped spread the rumors (a big SO WHAT), but she is not “the one behind the rumors”.

    it is utterly RIDUNKULOUS thst we are supposed to believe that these rumors are teresa’s fault.

    I saw the clip on Bravo and couldnt understand it very well, it kept stopping and starting very bad clip to watch..but I did get Penny saying it was all Teresa… Not sure I understand? Bravo has to be behind Melissa on this? Why would Penny suddenly throw Tre under the bus like this? Bravo has been posting ALL the negative comments to Melissa’s blog (which is just about every comment now) and Bravo has to know that the public is not behind Melissa anymore..so why are they still trying to make Tre the BAD ONE? I am so confused??

    • corky21
      September 13, 2013 at 3:18 PM

      Gigi, because we were duped. It’s all manufactured fake drama. Andy is huge soap opera fan, and he created his own with this franchise of housewives. I believe Tre and Melissa and Joe have real issues, but Bravo/Andy uses the others, the Penny’s to move the story line.

      This year, he wanted to show that Melissa’s old friends were out to get her. He allowed Melissa’s whispers to air, or maybe Melissa was told to whisper mean things about Teresa. In the meantime, Teresa is told to organize a retreat and invite Caroline to help. Dr. V comes in (his other show) to try and mend the family. The fight is real, but other forces continue to push Andy’s story.

      Melissa’s ex friends have been tweeting and posting for awhile, so he uses that to fuel the fire against Melissa fully knowing that somehow Teresa is involved because last season during the Fairy Party fight, Teresa was in trouble for telling her brother off camera about rumors.

      From Season 1, when Tre was after Danielle, and flipping tables, and flipping Andy, his show was soaring and he has to keep the lion, Tre, primed.

      Any talk surrounding Teresa off camera is used to keep it going. Melissa knows she needs to play the victim and deny, deny, deny. The fact that she and Joe always say Teresa, this or that, why doesn’t she leave, or stop these people talking, yet they don’t stop trash talking Teresa shows how manufactured this show really is. They have to play it up. I believe there are issues, but they have to make it worse.

      This year, we see Teresa trying to move on, nip it in the bud, she repeats this over and over; she must remember the lines given her. However, she’s still involved in the rumor mill, and she knows that Penny will betray her.

      Andy made Teresa his Erika Kane. It’s so obvious. As for the fight coming up, I believe the tensions were real and what transpired was too, however, surrounding the real issues that these people have, is Bravo/production company telling them what to say, when to say it, who to contact, etc.

      I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, my brother watched NY being filmed at his business. He said the women were arguing, and they cut and started several times with the argument. He said producers were talking with the wives separately, and then they would start shooting again.

      I think it’s time to stop watching Bravo shows. Especially this one.

        Very nice post! I also think that there is a bit of Miss Cohen’s bitchy drag queen attitude affecting the entire show. Cohen would wet himself if he could do the show he really wants – “The Real Bitches of Andy Cohen”. A bunch of bitchy, slutty types all gossiping and back stabbing each other while they imagine they are some kind of celebrity. Before anyone jumps down my throat – I saw that world first hand many years ago in the insular subculture of Tri-State area drag queens. They are *just* like RHONJ. Too loud, too much makeup, too much attitude. But I digress – Miss Andy has driven this version of the Housewives franchise so far off the rails it is a lost cause. Kind of like Jocelyn Wildenstein starring in “Sunset Boulevard”…

          • September 13, 2013 at 8:28 PM

            Knowing that they can edit the show any way they chose, they once again decide to crucify Teresa. Between this and her enormous personal financial problems, why doesn’t Andy just spit in her face on the reunion show and be done with it. i wonder if he is trying to make her suicidal. Or if he takes great pleasure in breaking her spirit. I think he is a sick, evil person.

    September 13, 2013 at 3:08 PM

    Ok – I just watched the clip – three times. The bartender is shaking a cocktail; then he’s not; then he’s shaking it again. There is a woman in a light green blouse behind Melissa – first you see her; then you don’t, oh, and then all of a sudden, she’s there again. As Saddle says, the background noise keeps changing, facial expressions are not consistent with what is being “said” and some of what is being said, you do not actually see the person saying it.

    I don’t believe this conversation unfolded the way we are being led to believe.

    Remember, at the Reunion, Teresa is very happy with the outcome. Ask yourself why. She wouldn’t be if this scene is to be believed. Because if we are to believe it, how do TB and TSIL come to reconciliation with her after all of her denials?

    Makes absolutely no sense – there is more to all of this than meets the eye.

    • sparkle1908
      September 13, 2013 at 3:55 PM

      Just when I had restored my faith in Bravo’s moderators…they keep “poofing” my response to someone posting about how they can’t wait to see the next episode when Teresa is outed.
      So frustrating….

      I didn’t think it was so bad. What do ya’ll think? See below….

      — Make no mistake…Teresa will always be “called out” on the RHONJ. Curiously, with a 4-camera crew, shooting from every angle, we; “the viewers”, will never see the unspliced scene of the question being asked of Penny by the Gorga’s and then Penny answering. You see the Gorga’s ask; then a cut, then Penny answering “something”…then another cut, and so on…and so on. Editing at it’s finest…NOT!

      A prudent person might question, “Why so many cut-a-ways in a 2-minute, face to face conversation?”. That didn’t happen when Jan confronted Melissa and we saw how that conversation turned out.

      The source of the “rumor” that Melissa was in the parking lot with her ex-boyfriend is not a mystery to you, me or anyone else who has watched the past few episodes. Jan; Melissa’s proclaimed “best friend”, replayed her account of the events in question, at a dinner table full of people and cameras. Then, Jan happily retold her same story directly to Melissa, in front of Little Joe and the cameras. How can anyone pretend to NOT know the source of the rumors, if the source told you to your face she said it and has never backed down? That’s just selective stupidity on the part of the Gorgas and anyone else pretending to STILL be looking for “the source”.

      Bravo doesn’t have another story line for any of these women, if Teresa isn’t the villain. Most people with a conscience, would refuse to publicly vilify their family members on national TV for a few dollars and a little notoriety. Luckily for us, the Gorgas don’t seem to have a conscience. Neither do the Wakilies or Jacqueline (Dina), for that matter. Bravo certainly knew how to pick em. Personally, I’m done with this franchise after this season. Now, this foolishness just belies common sense. You’d have to be a true simpleton to believe this crap is “reality”.

      September 13, 2013 at 6:28 PM

      I know that production/editing has been shown to play fast and loose with reality, but considering the information that has already been made public by Penny via Faux I can’t help but think that clip will not be shown as is on the actual episode. Production has been harsh toward Teresa in the past but hitting her with a huge gotcha now seems over the top even for them considering her real life problems. If it isn’t Teresa taking the final blame though who will it be….Kim D., Jan, Penny?

  31. September 13, 2013 at 3:43 PM

    How are we supposed to believe that this conversation took place in the manner it’s being shown? There is NO WAY IN HELL that Penny would have agreed (on TV) with a “Yes” to SloJo’s comment that Johnny has been trash-twittering about Melissa. That certainly looks like (and his wife leads credence) that Johnny instigated trouble. How is Johnny going to be able to pursue those assault charges he has filed against the Gorgas and Lauritas if his own wife admits that he’s a shit-stirrer?

    I can’t believe, with those assault charges heading to trial soon, that Bravo is playing fast-and-loose with taped conversations. Is Bravo simply trying to save its own sorry behind, knowing they were complicit in that whole salon brawl? Ridiculous!!!

    • Confused
      September 13, 2013 at 6:07 PM

      I absolutely agree with you. It’s called tainting the jury pool — albeit in this case the viewer pool. There will probably be some plea deal related to the assault charges along with a big, fat check for JTG on the condition that they can’t speak a word of the settlement. Teresa will be left holding the shit bag.

    It looks like Bravo’s going to silence Penny by holding her to whatever-it–is-she signed to keep her from dishing on Sunday’s episode. I wondered if they were going to edit out the Caroline/Albert cheating confrontation, and by shutting Penny up, I think I’ve got my answer. It must be great to be the Almighty Manzos…

  33. September 13, 2013 at 4:26 PM

    The simple fact is this meeting took place before Miraval, there are pictures to prove it, if indeed Penny put the blame on Teresa, the final scene at the spa would never have taken place.

      There you go dookie56!! BAM!!!

      Bravo/Sirens thinks the viewers are uneducated idiots. It is time they figure out that while the majority don’t know what you just stated, there is a growing number that do. Just the number of new posters here at FW proves it. Once again, things don’t add up and this time there are many more who are well aware of what was going during real time when they were filming this season. It was all over the internet, in the blogs, and on social media. “Leaks” were being let out on an almost daily basis. Just look at Fame’s blog alone and the details she has reported on since February 2012.

      This is all producer-induced, edited, scripted BS and I believe the cast also plays a role in it being the good employees they all are, and that includes Teresa.

      Now when their blogs are written this week, let’s all see how they spin doctor this one because we all know the real sequence of events – not the show’s. How are they going to explain this – should be very interesting indeed.

    I just watched the video on E On Line, and Bravo may be shooting themselves in the foot as far as all of these “reality shows” are concerned.

    They are advertising something as “reality” when it is the farthest thing from it.

    Even casual viewers are savvy enough to know that there is some scripting and editing going on, and some slanting. But this goes beyond that, and It begs the question: are any of their other “reality shows” as blatantly and obviously manipulated as this one is.

    I stop watching RHONJ a few weeks ago, and truthfully, I don’t miss it. I don[t need something that dark on a Sunday night – I would rather have something fun and light. I keep up through here and the blogs, etc.

    I am very close to being done with Bravo entirely; I find myself “flipping to Bravo” less and less. If this plays out the way it appears, it will seal the deal for me.

    • September 13, 2013 at 6:30 PM

      I also have not watched more than a few minutes of the last four episodes and I do not miss them. I cannot believe I feel this way. Last year, at this time, I had invested my entire heart and soul into the RHONJ. I tried to watch Sunday’s episode at Miraval and only six minutes into the show the editing had completely turned me off.

      I do not watch very much television and I do try to avoid Bravo. I can honestly say there is no new show on Bravo that I have even been tempted to watch in the last several seasons.

      As far as all television programs go, I feel I am drowning in a sea of really bad “reality” programs. Most of these programs seem to reward bad behavior, which is another turn off.

      It’s a good one, with it going into detail as to what is going on and reiterating alot of what the commenters here have been and are saying.

      I think with all of the events that unfolded throughout the filming of Season 5, including Kim D. not fulfilling her “promises”, producers bringing in Penny and JanMarie to stir things up, Bryan coming to the surface, the fight in Lake George, the behind the scenes machinations of the Wakiles and Gorgas to get the Greeks to turn on Teresa, the setup of JTG at Moxie, and the indictment handed down to the Giudices, amongst everything else that we know and don’t know (Geez, this is exhausting!!), the producers themselves didn’t know how to end this season until very, very recently; hence, the recent talking heads of TSIL.

    RealityTea is running a “Who Wore It Best?” between Teresa and TB – TB’s red/black outfit for Gia’s birthday party versus Teresa’s orange/black outfit she wore to Fashion Week. I voted for Teresa but Melissa is winning:

    Melissa Gorga – 59%

    Teresa Giudice – 40%

      Teresa is so much prettier, and wore it better. Take it from a fash-hole.

    Off topic. Jax needs to lay off the Botox so Nicholas can see her expressions when she communicates.

    “Women who received Botox had a much harder time identifying facial expressions from pictures. The researchers argue this is because they could not make the face. More importantly, this makes it difficult to feel empathy for the people you are speaking with. With botox literally you cannot feel or mimic their pain. ”

      Jax has botulism overdose, prescription drugs, and alcohol poisoning controlling her brain.
      In addition to that, she is not bright enough to understand what is best for Nicholas. I say that as a teacher who for fifteen years tested children for admission into a private school. He gets therapy all day, then he gets home and instead of unwinding, he has to spell “Antidisestablismentatianism” with his letters if he wants his i pad. He should be outside playing with twenty old moving boxes on the grass, or a ball and a therapy dog. Instead, she tortures him, and makes him say I love you to get rewards. Instead she is stuffing him a in a hyperbaric bag. Explain to me the intricacies of hyperbaric medicine you imbecilic twit from Glitter Gulch. The evidence that hyper-oxygenation can impact mental disorders. Better yet, go have some more plastic surgery and bleach your asshole you low class whore who couldn’t even make the upper echelons of whoredom in Vegas and had to do car show escort work. Allegedly. Now she is a fucking expert on autism. No, she is an expert on being overwrought.

        Sorry, spelled that big word wrong. One cup of coffee. need two.

          May I add this to no one who is listening because we have moved on to another post. Take the damn I pads away from your kids. Their brains are being improperly stimulated by those things, they are stunting their own imaginations, you will see. The research will be there. When I see a two year old with an ipad I want to scream. Ipads are the new babysitter. Very bad for normal development and social skills.

        So true. She posted this on her blog and it bothered me

        “A few family members say I baby Nick too much, cuddling him in my arms and looking directly into his eyes when I speak to him. They don’t understand that it’s the bond between my son and me that pulls him out of his world and into ours. ”

    Total BS on editing by Bravo! I believe Penny and Johnny! This show has hit Another all time low with the lies and deceit and what makes me so angry is how Kathy and Richie felt the need to join the Whore couple once again in bringing down Tre by trying to convince Penny and Johnny to blame T. There is nothing more disgusting than people who pretend to be sweet and wholesome, Ms. Uglyfish, while in reality they are conniving and evil. At least we all know that Richie is a douchebag, but lil Ms. Cannoli Tits acts so innocent …. Oh I can’t leave the water bottles as liter on the ground, but I can backstab my first cousin on National TV! Lets see you protect your big sis on this one Rosie! I can’t wrap head around the why?

      Just wanted to give you a (((Meri))) and hope you are doing okay.

        Yes I’m doing okay. Update is my son spent a night in jail, which wouldn’t have been that bad I suppose except he had his wisdom teeth pulled the day before and they wouldn’t let him have pain meds of any kind so he was awake all night. He has to do 90 AA meetings in 90 days (again) , blow for alcohol 2x a day, random drug testing twice a week (don’t really understand that), and alcohol counseling and be on probation until June which is part of his original 2 year probation. He will be fine and will do the punishment and will never get behind the wheel of a car after drinking alcohol again! My brother will have triple by pass heart surgery next Tuesday morning. I was shocked and scared when I first heard the diagnosis, but decided I needed to relax and believe that God will be at his side. Thanks for asking Jeannie xoxox hope you are doing okay

          Wow Meri, you are in the storm! I hope you are able to rest a little. I will be thinking of you and your family.

        • September 14, 2013 at 10:20 AM

          Just to make you feel better, they recover a lot more quickly from triple bypass surgery than they used to. Just watch out for a period of depression that does not go away. Other than that, they are lucky they caught it! They don’t call heart disease the silent killer for nothing. My mother had a massive heart attack when I was young and never even fell out of her chair.In those days, Women only thought to go to the gynecologist, not to have their heart health looked after. Your brother will be just fine. As for your son, kids do stupid things. All of our kids do or have. He is lucky to have you for a mother.

    I wonder what Hollywood say about Bravo? They should know how professional producers really splice, dice and edit shows. I bet they are the laughing stock of Hollywood!!!!! But they are making $$$ off of these shows, especially HW shows. that’s what kills me.

    If they do this “scam” to sell her book,I hope one of the victims reports to the NewJersey Att General – that is exactly what the AttGeneral’s office goes after – fraudulent, misleading, false advertising to consumers. Gheex I just want this show to end for good. That will rnd this Loser’s exposure.

    I attend Rowan University in NJ right by Philadelphia. We have a Barnes & Noble on campus as our bookstore and they have been promoting Melissa Gorga’s book for weeks now. She is coming to sign on September 26th. Her book was listed as 20% off about a week ago when I was in there. Keep in mind this is a college book store and almost as soon as you walk in there is a display of her books. Why are they catering this book to us? Most of the college population on campus that use the book store are not married or thinking about marriage anytime soon. I will most definitely not attend this “signing” because I believe we will have to purchase her book.
