Teresa Giudice Blogs That “When You’re on TV, People Want What You Have” and Denies Ever Being Friends with Penny Drossos Karagiorgis (Updated October 8, 2013)

September 16, 2013

s5 206

All copies of Melissa singing “Never Let Me Go” live without autotune have been removed from the internet because of “copyright infringment” – but, of course, the real reason the video has disappeared is because it proves Melissa can’t sing, so Johnny Wright used his power to have the original (uploaded by XL106.7) and all copies removed.

The meeting at Chakra with Penny Drossos-Karagiorgis and the Gorgas was pre-arranged by producers – this is obvious to anyone with an ounce of intelligence and confirmed by FW sources (both Penny and the Gorgas were told to come to Chakra for a sitdown to discuss the cheating rumors on camera), and viewers would appreciate it if the cast would stop lying to us in their testimonials (TH interviews) and blogs.

According to Bergen.com, “Melissa Gorga and her husband Joe Gorga stopped by Chakra with a few friends while filming a scene for the upcoming season of RHONJ.”

Chronological order of events vs. episode in which it appeared (in parentheses):

December 3, 2012 (not shown) – Holiday Posche fashion show

February 18, 2013 (episode 12) – Milania hair care launch party

February 28, 2013 (episode 16) – Penny’s sitdown with the Gorgas

Early March 2013 (not taped by Bravo) – Penny’s husband John’s meeting with Joe Gorga and Rich Wakile

March 16 – 19, 2013 (episodes 14 & 15) – Miraval Spa in Arizona for Melissa’s birthday

March 29, 2013 (not taped by Bravo) – Wakiles call Penny and talk to her for more than an hour to work out what she and her husband are supposed to say, instructing them to put the blame on Teresa

March 30, 2013 (episode 18) – Grand opening of Posche 2 at Moxie Salon where Caroline and Jacqueline confront Penny while her husband John is held outside; then Joe Gorga and the Lauritas John as soon as production permits him to enter the salon (footage of the fight with not be shown due to legal issues)

The following are some of John and Penny Drossos-Karagiorgis’ tweets during the premiere of season 5 episode 16 on September 15, 2013.

#1fanTeresa Giudice ‏@mejiatommy 5h
@HeatherMaclean why is penny doing this?

Heather Maclean ‏@HeatherMaclean 5h
@mejiatommy No idea. I think she really wanted to be on the show & was trying to “take a page” out of Melissa’s book. Backfired.

Heather Maclean ‏@HeatherMaclean 7h
So we’ve all heard directly from Penny by now that she was edited like crap. A blind cow on Mars could see the bad editing.

Daisy47 ‏@anniegardens 6h
@uarethequeen @HeatherMaclean True Pati! Penny has lied @ some point! I’ve seen past tweets of hers that totally jive with 2nite’s scene

Heather Maclean ‏@HeatherMaclean 6h
@anniegardens @uarethequeen I saw that too. Don’t know or follow her but I DO know how Sirens edits. I believe Penny got messed with.

MissAmia ‏@MissAmiaSays 4h
@HeatherMaclean @anniegardens @uarethequeen I do too and Im not a fan. Dina got the same edit when she guest appeared last season.

MissAmia ‏@MissAmiaSays 4h
@uarethequeen @HeatherMaclean @anniegardens it’s hard when the cast plays along, my friend pointed out Jac didn’t even tweet (obsessed)2nite

Heather Maclean ‏@HeatherMaclean 3h
@uarethequeen @MissAmiaSays @anniegardens Oh I agree. She wanted to be a HW. We all know this. Just like Kim D & Jen D did/do.

Heather Maclean ‏@HeatherMaclean
@uarethequeen @MissAmiaSays @anniegardens But Sirens screws with *everyone*. I’m sure they filmed for hours and then cut it badly.

KelliAnn ‏@KelliAnna12 5h
@HeatherMaclean Another QQ….if WE all can see that Tre had nothing to do with this, then why can’t MeGo and Joe?

Heather Maclean ‏@HeatherMaclean
@KelliAnna12 I think they do but they fake it for storyline & to stay on the show. Kills T & her parents though.

The following are Teresa’s and Melissa’s Bravo blogs for episode 16. In Teresa’s blogs, she is evasive when she says that she “only met Penny and Johnny at public events,” that she “just stayed far, far away once I figured out that Penny was just trying to make herself relevant,” and that “it’s not my thing to get cast on the show by offering to bash people, and I wanted no part of it.” As she has done in her blogs for the past two years, Teresa continues to claim that she would never do anything to hurt her family like being a part of “bashing” them. But in another part of one of her blogs, she indirectly admits that she had contact with Penny and Johnny, but covers her ass by saying she “started staying away from them because they were bashing Melissa to get cast on a show.”

Melissa and Joe’s Deflection (Excerpt)
By Teresa Giudice
September 16, 2013

Teresa explains why she thinks everyone wants to blame her for the rumors.

Another roller coaster episode, right? I loved seeing everyone together again. I wish it could stay that way forever! Unfortunately when you’re on TV, people want what you have. They want to be on TV too and they’ll do anything to make it happen or they just want to take you down because they’re sick of watching you. I get it. I’ve seen it happen now on every season of every Housewives show in every city. It’s not fun to be the target, but it comes with the territory. The problem is when newer cast members join and get attacked, they can freak out like Melissa and Joey were. You have to stay united and refuse to let any strangers break you down. But I get that it’s hard. It shouldn’t be hard for family to believe family over strangers, but…

I’m definitely not happy to see where this season is going based on how Melissa and Joey are reacting to the rumors. It’s all my fault again. I get it. It’s easier to blame their own sister/sister-in-law than it is to blame a stranger. It sounds strange, but here’s why.

First of all, blaming me takes all of the emphasis off the actual rumors. Instead of anyone looking into those, they’re all busy looking at me. Fine, deflect away. I’m here for you.

Second, going after family is safe. They know I will never do anything to them. With a stranger, you can’t be so sure. They don’t want to go after Penny because she might take it to a whole new level. Easier to befriend her, right? I wouldn’t be looking to make BFFs with someone who was talking to my ex-boyfriend and threatening to expose rumors about me, but that’s just me.

And third, family will always forgive you, and they know it. Family will always be there. To save themselves, they feel like they have to throw me under the bus. I don’t like it but I can’t do anything about it. They are going to believe what they want to believe. Their beliefs make no sense to me — they don’t believe Penny one minute and the next they do. Pick one! They already confronted Penny at the Youthful 8 Milania Collection launch party and she told them I had nothing to do with it. But it wasn’t enough for them. They had to keep going after her. Why? And when they did, suddenly Penny changed her mind that I had something to do with it. Why would she suddenly do that? Why didn’t she say that when I was right in front of her?

But it’s how they’ve chosen to deal with this and I can’t seem to stop them. I’ve done everything I could possibly do, and now I’m done. Done.

I was very happy to go support Kathy at Dylan’s Candy Bar with my 4 daughters. They had a great time! Love to see people’s success!

I was also so happy Jacqueline asked me to help her with her speech. It wasn’t as random as you might think because in November I had just given my own first big speech at the NephCure Countdown to the Cure Fundraiser at Capitale in NYC (www.nephcure.org). It was a black-tie affair with tons of press and I was so so so nervous. But I worked it out and was excited to help Jacqueline work hers out too.

I love Nicholas and so does Joe. Since Nick and Audriana were born so close together, Joe always looked at Nicholas like sort of a son too. We missed him a lot.

Penny’s Not a Reliable Source (Excerpt)
By Melissa Gorga
September 16, 2013

Melissa shares her thoughts on what Penny had to say.

This episode was a lot about all of our new endeavors and it was nice to see what everyone is working on.

First of all, major congrats to Kathy and her delicious cannoli kits! If you haven’t tried them, you must. She pulled off a great event at Dylan’s Candy Bar. My kids would be happy to live there from now on. Joe can’t get enough of the Slippery Nipples, of course, LOL! We had a blast at Kathy’s event and are always here to support her.

And congratulations to Teresa for the launch her of Skinny Italian Foods line. I’ve tried the pastas and they are so delish!

Jacqueline’s speech at the autism fundraiser had us all crying. Not a dry eye on the entire basketball court. It took a lot of courage for her to stand up and tell Nicholas’ story. She was brave and delivered her speech beautifully.

I’m glad you got to see the lunch with my mother-in-law. It was nice having all of us together and it definitely felt like we were becoming a family again. And for those of you asking, yes of course I hugged and kissed my mother-in-law hello.

Finally, you get to meet my music manager Johnny Wright! I have to admit, my nerves got the better of me when I was singing “Never Let Me Go” in my studio for Johnny and Justin Thorne, the songwriter and producer. Johnny is the real deal. He’s worked with Britney, ‘N Sync, Justin Timberlake, Akon, and The Jonas Brothers. I really wanted to impress him. The fact that he’s interested in me at all was so exciting — and terrifying. I had a lot riding on that recording session. It got better once I got over my nerves, trust me, or he would have walked out and never looked back.

When Johnny suggested my going to Orlando for vocal coaching, I was all for it. I’d never had any formal training and have just used what I’ve got. I’ll take any expert advice I can get! My attitude is, I’m grateful for every minute of Johnny’s guidance. I’m happy to learn and ready to go! Thanks, Johnny and Justin, for your faith in me.

One last thing in this episode: the talk with Penny. Joe and I thought we were going out to a nice dinner. I had no idea she’d be there. We were just as surprised as you were to see her sitting at the bar.

During our talk, I tried to act like a lady. I don’t come at anyone guns blazing. That’s not how you get anywhere in life. Penny was pretty open with us about who she’d been talking to about me, but she is hardly a reliable source. As you can see I was very skeptical about her. I asked my questions and she gave me her answers. Whether those answers were just another flat out lie, we didn’t know. There was Penny’s side and Teresa’s side. The truth was probably somewhere in the middle.

Penny’s news that night wasn’t earth-shattering for Joe and me. When I decided I was going to let go of the past issues with Teresa, I pretty much knew what I was moving on from.

It all comes out in good time in the upcoming episodes. Keep watching to see how everything plays out.

Here’s a link to the finished version of “Never Let Me Go”. I’m so happy with how it turned out. I absolutely love this song!

Melissa and Penny’s Game (Excerpt)
By Teresa Giudice
September 23, 2013

Teresa shares her thoughts on the confrontation with Penny.

On last week’s episode, my brother said something about me to Chris Laurita that really bothered me. I decided to ignore it and not write about it, but I couldn’t sleep all night. But then he was at me again this episode, so I have to say something. Last week he said no one should “take advice” from me. That really hurt because I was good enough for Joey to take advice and help from when he was first starting his business. Then this week he tells some ridiculous story about how I acted when I was 5. Here’s what’s funny: he was 3 at the time. How long is he going to keep talking trash about his only sister? I wish he would stop, but it is taking a toll. You can only get hurt so much before you get numb. This week, when he was spewing garbage about me, I was numb. I don’t know what that means, but that’s how I feel now.

I wish I was numb during that confrontation with Penny at Moxie, but I was more like shocked. First of all, I couldn’t believe Melissa’s questions. We were finally together to confront Penny together about the awful cheating rumors she has supposedly been spreading about Melissa. And the first thing Melissa asks her? About MY FATHER in the hospital. WHAT?

Why would that be Melissa’s sudden concern? My father was in the hospital a couple of times months earlier. Penny and her husband have tweeted lots and lots of horrible things about Melissa’s past for years and THAT’S the only thing Melissa is upset about? My father? Why my father? To deflect from the rumors about her? To distract Penny from saying things she knows about her? To make me mad so I would get more involved?

Whatever Melissa’s calculated reason was, it worked. The entire thing turned around on me. For two years Penny has been tweeting exclusively about Melissa, and in two seconds, it gets turned around on me.

As you all know, I never talk about my parents to anyone. I get upset when my own family like Kathy talks about my parents. Why would I ever say a word about them to a stranger? Especially someone who has been publicly attacking my sister-in-law for years? Why would I go near that person? I’ve only met Penny at events. I’ve never talked to her on Twitter, I don’t follow her, I just stayed far, far away once I figured out (along with the rest of America) that she was just trying to make herself relevant.

How would Penny know about the controversy of when Melissa did or didn’t go visit my dad in the hospital? We had filmed about it in public, me asking Melissa. There were lots of people there that could have told her.

Right then, when Penny brought up my dad in the hospital, I knew what was going on. I knew that she and Melissa were playing some kind of game, and I wasn’t going to play along.

I can’t figure out Penny and why she says what she says except that she wanted to be a Housewife. Her stories don’t make sense, she does talk out of both sides of her mouth. She says she didn’t do anything, then she says someone else made her do it. My favorite line of the night was from Jacqueline: “What are you 5? You make your own decisions. It doesn’t matter what someone else told you to do, you chose to do it. So I blame you.”

Calling Out Caroline (Excerpt)
By Teresa Giudice
October 8, 2013

Teresa gives her side of the argument with Caroline.

Speaking of pretending… Everyone can pretend they’ve never heard of Penny and Johnny, that “these people, these strangers, these roaches” were brought into our family by me, but they all know it’s not true. We live in a small town and we ALL cross paths with the same people all the time. The sad part is after all this, I’m very cautious now about who comes up to be friends with me because everyone knows who I am, and I don’t know them or their families or what their intentions are.As I’ve always said, I personally have only seen Penny and Johnny at public events. When I heard that they were trying to get Penny cast as a new Housewife on Twitter, I started staying away from them because they were bashing Melissa to do it. I know some people think you can get cast on a show by offering to bash people already on it, and apparently it does work sometimes, but it’s not my thing, and I wanted no part of it. I get it that lots of people want to get on TV. If you can get cast, God bless you. Just please don’t do it by bashing my family. Be fabulous and interesting and have a great life that people want to watch and I’m sure Bravo will call you!

Like I said on the Reunion, I’m done done done with all this family drama. If anyone wants to keep believing I did things that I didn’t do, that’s on them. I’ve apologized, I’m trying to move forward with my life, and to me, that chapter is closed. I’m never going to get to that ugly place with anyone again. I just won’t allow it. I won’t allow anyone to drag me in.

    September 16, 2013 at 5:35 PM

    I’m like Teresa, Done, done and done.

    I know everyone here believes that T had nothing to do with and believe that Bravo/Sirens or whomever did a butchers job on the actual conversation, but I’d like to know if there are people out there who actually believe this crap that Bravo is shoveling our way. This should used to be so fun in the beginning but this story line is very tiresome and quite frankly insulting.

    Oh well, T’s blog was a good one.

        My daughter still wants me to watch it with her. We enjoyed it when it first started. She is always telling me everyone sees things from a different perspective. I’m glad she sees Caroline’s true colors at least. She did say she thought it was weird that Penny just happened to be at the place TSIL and TB went to.

I seem to remember Caroline making a dig to Teresa in one of her TH in 3rd season about how just because you can speak the language and Make wine doesn’t make you more Italian so it seems this crew never did the old boat stuff like making sauce and wine and speaking Italian so why they starting now???? Has the brownstone got a new pasta sauce coming out??

      I also saw Bryan’s tweets and he is very upset. I believe that Kim D’s blog referencing Bulldog as the source of the rumors has him pissed off! I don’t blame him for being sick and tired of the accusations, but for the sake of his health he just needs to walk away. They are not worth it!

  4. September 16, 2013 at 5:53 PM

    Well it’s about to get real because Bryan has been tweeting today that he is tired of the bull and he is ready to get the truth out there and if Joe want’s to front him he can sometimes you can pick something into the ground the man is tired of being messed with like Teresa said if you would just leave it alone it will go away but Jolissa keep running behind it. They have really outed themselves by messing with someone who cannot or will not fight back so now the source has opened up and Anthony also the old saying ” pick on someone your own size”

            I do too but I think Joe already knows the truth he just hates that it has been exposed and it makes him look like a fool because of the bragging on his marriage which is actually what made these people come forward why would you question something you already know to be true he is questioning who told it not did she do it. His statement “these people know personal things about me” it’s called pillow talk Joe.

    Melissa is getting slammed on the Bravo and other blogs. This storyline is ridiculous, you have to be delusional to believe Teresa started these “rumors”. I skipped over most of the show last night, it is getting boring.

  6. September 16, 2013 at 5:58 PM

    The way this is going, if Teresa doesn’t put a stop to all this she’s to start losing her fans. At least she will lose me as a fan because I will not watch another of season of this anymore.

    On a side note I want to ask ya to please include my brother in your prayers. He will finally get his surgery to remove his tumor this Thursday. The doctor said its a shame he has waited this long and that hopefully he will be able to walk again, though he is optimistic because my brother still has good strength in his legs. The surgery is suppose to last 6-8 hours and I’m already having anxiety but I have faith that God is going to help him overcome this. Before hand I thank you,

      What exactly can Tre do to stop the editing? Nothing. Will she lose some fans, yes, but a good chunk will stay with her. PS — I’m almost 24 hours free from watching NJ 😉

      I hope and pray your brother’s surgery is successful. Those long surgeries are so darn stressful not just for the patient, but for the loved ones in the waiting room! (been there-done that). I’ll keep you and your brother in my prayers tonight.

      I agree with you about Teresa. Although I stopped watching the show, I still follow the blogs to keep up with what is going on. What I really want to see, like many other people who post on FW, is for Melissa and Joe to be confronted with their dishonesty and hypocrisy. That is not asking a lot and Bravo is counting on us to wait indefinitely for this to happen, but we wont. There are many other programs competing for our viewing time, and they are not nearly as frustrating as RHONJ.

      Unfortunately for Teresa, when interest dies off for the program, it will make it very hard for her to keep connected with her fans.

Also, to add to this dreadfully stressful week, my son in law was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis today… It’s been a whirlwind to say the least. God Bless Nancy! We are all here for you ❤

      My dad had a similar surgery last year. My heart and prayers out to you and the whole family. Piece of advice: while he’s in surgery take some disinfectant and clean his room. Also take some sheets and use those instead. My dad ended up with a Steph infection. If you can get some towels use those to mop the room also. You will want to want to do something with your nervous energy.

      Yes he was and someone outed him it wasn’t Teresa it was told to Teresa he gave a tease interview and took pics with CY interview and said he was not ready to discuss all just yet but last night he left the door open for Joe Gorga to confront him both these guys are connected to penny it’s looking like penny was willing to play along until they double crossed her now she wants to out everybody that double crossed her now everyone has to discredit her and johnny to save face and put this shit stirring on her when they are the ones who set it up but she went along and got shagged in the end now Mel is blogging that penny is not a reliable source so that is to make us believe that the cheating rumors about her and Manzo are coming from a liar..

    Ah the canning tomatoes pic…THERE’S the united front they were talking about!

    • Jack Hole
      September 16, 2013 at 6:25 PM

      Funny about this canning pic, I think it has way more meaning than some might realize. In MY opinion/read of the show, I think that Joe Gorga lost it and went berserk about being left out of the show when Teresa filmed the tomato canning episode w her parents and Jac(remember she had to ask Jac if she had her period? The Italian wives tale?) Well, in some respects, I could see the Gorgas feeling left out of this family scene, But clearly, their reaction has been way out of proportion to the offense. Anyways, to me, that scene was the touch point for the Wakile/Gorga argument of the Giudice’s leaving them out and gravitating towards the “fake family.”

      Problem is, these morons are on this revenge of “she did it to me so I am going to do it to her” train and they are just so hateful. That is why I am perplexed that they have fans!!! I seriously have to question the judgment and integrity of their fans is what I mean. To support this type of response towards a family member really says something about the level of morals one has…

      • eggmitit
        September 16, 2013 at 6:50 PM

        Jack Hole, at first I thought, the Giudices and Wakiles weren’t there. Maybe they couldn’t make it., maybe they weren’t invited, who cares? But then I saw it was MELISSA who tweeted the picture, which leads me to believe she was sticking it to Teresa. In the grand scheme of things, it’s small potatoes, but the bottom line is, Melissa is a BITCH and I wait with bated breath for her and her vile husband’s day of reckoning. They are both beyond revolting.

            • September 16, 2013 at 9:39 PM

              Audriana’s birthday was the day before (Sept 14th), and Gino’s was two days before that (Sept 12th). None of the cast members used twitter to send birthday wishes to the kids, which I think is smart. The birthday messages to each other should be private.

              With the photos the cast posted on Sept 15 and 16 (the sausage making minus the Giudices; Teresa tweeting photos two days after Audriana’s birthday of a second party she threw on Sept 15 minus the Gorgas), I think the cast is trying to give us the impression that there is still estrangement because that’s what keeps the blogs a buzz with discussion about it.

              I’m not buying it.

              birthday 1

              birthday 5

                Teresa should have cleared it up by responding to Sue Cohen’s tweet, but instead she said nothing and is letting everyone believe that Audriana’s birthday was on the 15th and the Gorgas weren’t there.

    wow im starting to think TSIL is the teflon queen ala casey anthony.(well except only difference is TSIL didnt kill her kid SMH) …i have yet to see either one get their reckoning and what is deserved to them. wth is with penny’s botched editing/ showing i guess tre’s number on her phone? i will have to dig thru this site, i did not have the chance to dig thru all the 400+ comments on the last post yet LOL. i noticed in tsil blog she mention of course she hugged and kissed her MIL. ( why do i not believe this? ) what i have a problem with is their supposedly plan to confront penny as a unified front. but of COURSE tsil seen that opportunity to ask penny before they could confront her as a unified front. me thinks that all that “confront as a unit” is malarkey…call me crazy, another attempt to sabotage any effort for tre, tb and tsil to do as caroline and wakilies advised them to do/ confront penny as a family….why do that when its easier for missy to act on her own agenda and oh wow surprise penny rolls on tre? SMH. ive said it again, if i had a brother, you bet i would want to keep a swarmy gold digging skanky snake in the grass ( like tsil) away from him and my family!!! and if she weasled a wedding ring/ marriage into my family, i would not give her one moment of peace. but that’s just me and maybe its a good thing i dont have a brother. tsil says in her blog things work out for the good, just watch and see? why is tre going to take the blame and be the scapegoat or the fall guy just for the sake of moving forward and keeping the peace? never mind jan confronted tsil herself and she would have a good authority on the skeletons tsil has ( vs a 3rd party like penny who may know people like bulldog??) why do people forget about jan, and just figure well if penny said she was doing tre’s bidding to take tsil down???? just unreal.

    Did anyone ever think that actually T is the victim and Bravo plays it like this to increase her product sales and popularity. Two years in a row she has been voted most popular housewife and her products sell better than any other HW. I mean, Bravo and Sirens would have to be a pretty lame excuse for a business by letting all this info leak out to the public thus destroying their credibility. I think it has actually been more profitable for them to play it this way. They don’t care about the Gorga’s or the Manzo’s, they are chump change. T is where the money is and they portray her in a way that she has commanded a strong fan base that will support her through anything even fraud. I love T so I am not saying anything negative here but all of this is just starting to be a little to contrived for me. I mean even T would pull the plug, which she hasn’t, if this was all true. I think she would think about her family before money and if this was being detrimental to her family she would be out. She is able to walk away at the end of a filming day and put it behind her. Even after the last reunion there were shots of her and Juicy in a hot tub taking it easy after that horrible reunion she looked content and happy. I think T knows full well what all this is about and she does her job and goes home…..end of story.

  12. September 16, 2013 at 7:46 PM

    Ah the turning point, the moment I have been waiting for. I am so glad Teresa is satisfied that she has done all that she can and she is done. When a Taurus is done, they are DONE. She has her mother and father’s respect that she has done all that she can. They know their son and their daughter in law, how destructive they are with their mouths as well as their deceitful deeds. Juicy took Mama Gorgas hand and she kissed him on the cheek.

    Look at the canning pic? The Destructive Narcissist does get it, she can never have what Teresa has no matter how much she appears to have it. What adult in that pic really ever cared about Teresa? She has learned something the hard way. She is done. Her brother’s words will be noise. She will have a new perspective of what she thought their relationship was in the past.

    TSIL will not be satisfied. She is always running on empty looking for a supply for her ego. Look at the canning pic. Who is not there is just as telling as who is there. What supply is she actually getting from the adults in the pic? Jac needs attention, TSIL will not give her that unless it benefits her somehow. Caroline is there for TB, she would be there if TSIL was not in his life lol. She thinks TB needs her. Chris may not be able to give TSIL the attention she needs, TB likes to touch him and I think he likes it.

    Meanwhile Teresa’s bond with the friends she has, like Dina, are stronger. True friendship is something TSIL lacks and she knows it. She will never have one because she does not know how to be one. Teresa has a good relationship with her mother in law. Mama Gorga got TSIL’s number, at best they will tolerate each other. Teresa’s children are surrounded by the Giudice family and well loved. Sunday dinner surrounded by food and love. A beautiful thing.

    Love comes easily for Teresa. It is her weakness for those who prey upon it, but it is also her strength that pushes past the pain and grows. Love does not die, it stops growing in places it is no longer welcome.

    1) It appears Asslee is back. Blech
    2) Lapband blech
    3) I do NOT care if Teresa told the entire tri-state area her SIL is a shore whore. Like I don’t care. TSIL AND B are doing this strictly for a storyline and it is old and tiresome and I think viewers are tuning out. I agree they agree to use this as a storyline to keep themselves on the show. I don’t even think these 2 wombats are smart enough to realize how stupid they truly look.
    4) I 100% agree Carowhine would flaunt this in Teresa’s face. Be it Dina, or the fight from DR or the fact that Teresa’s has a huge fanbase Carowhine is “frickn’ jealous.”
    5) I think there was quite a bit of poor editing last night. I also think P&J were trying to get on the show and were playing as many hands as they could juggle and got bit in the arse.
    6) Further I think Carowhine and Albert do have an unique arrangement. I think she is fully aware he has cheated or has a full time side piece and she is ok with it as long as she can keep the lid on it.
    7) Johnny Wright is using this ridiculous storyline with TSIL strictly for publicity. He knows she can’t carry a tune with a handle on it.

    Frankly I wish I could get a refund on my cable bill for this entire mess.

    I don’t know Sushi Lounge all that well, but does anyone know if they have valet parking? Reason I’m asking is that I head through my little grapevine that a person who was working as a valet has some cell phone video of a certain Filthy Slut emerging from a car “needing some Binaca”. I’m assuming it was Sushi Lounge and I’m trying to see if this is really true….

        We’re great! I left you a note on the previous thread! The whole weeks difference in screening eps leaves me out the loop, add the time difference and a baby and my dwindling interest on the “Pin it on Teresa Show” means I’m lost for words but am still reading!

        I think it’s interesting that noise on Teresa’s legal woes is quieting down whilst chatter about TSIL and her charade never stops. You know I’m not really about swearing but let’s face it, it’s all bullshit. Blind Freddy could see that this season is held together with eyelash glue. Whilst it’s plain to see Missy’s hanging on to everything, that the cast are sick of the storyline and that TB has a few kangaroos loose in the top paddock, there’s been insufficient vindication to sustain my interest. My theory, and I’m spitballin’ here, is that they inserted the blonde TH after the indictment was announced, how can the Good Witch win if she’s a crim?

        I just keep shouting at my screen “YOU STARTED THE HOUSE FORECLOSURE CRAP AND YOU WANT OUR PITY?” I don’t see the Gorgas trying to rectify their misdeeds so the expectation they put on Teresa is all for show – Missy loves the drama.They don’t want it fixed!!!!!!!!!!!

            Exactly! I don’t believe for one minute that Bravo/Sirens made Penny or Faux redact her blog. I think it’s all smoke and mirrors. Based on the preview for the up and coming episode, Penny can’t lie or swindle her way out of implicating Tre. I never believed she was Team Teresa and has always been Team Penny. She took a gamble in her previous blogs implying she didn’t throw Teresa under the bus. She implied the same on Twitter. For a miilimeter of a second, i thought maybe, just maybe she was telling the truth. The fact of the matter is, Penny wanted to be a housewife/ friend of the housewives. She was mad because she was not getting paid to deliver the information that Kim D was using. Notice Kim D did not deliver any dirt this season… it’s because Penny cut Kim D off as her source. Penny wanted a paycheck and the notoriety as being the one who “outed” TSIL and Caroline in hopes she would become a paid cast member. IMO,the story from Penny and Faux about Wakile’s calling her the night before Moxie in an attempt to get Penny to implicate Teresa are most likely true. Penny confirmed on twitter the conversation lasted an hour and a half. Tell me, if Penny was Team Tre, why would she even entertain that conversation? Bottom Line: She did implicate Tre and fell for the Gorga/Wakile’s bullshit. IMO, I can add Penny’s name to the famewhore list under the Gorga’s and Wakile’s.

    Reading these 2 excerpts together (thx fame) its looking to me like this is meho’s rehab. Teresa is finally speaking out but meho seems pretty mild after finally getting her ‘proof’ that it was Teresa. So meho sees the bad edit and bugs out, she already sees people turning against her and actual dirt coming out. She is going to go the saint route – I let go, knew what I was moving on from, pennys not reliable, blah blah. Whoever said she was going to give up singing cause shes a wife/mom was so right. So once again meho wins – she plays sweet and contrite right when Teresa is speaking out, the ppl who were going to expose her won’t and she can look saintly during Teresa’s troubles. She may be too late – like caro-they cant put the mask back on and everyone has seen them. I’m not sure I’m making sense I’m so tired! I hope it does!

    Sackem’ Theory #3078

    So in the last ep in Arizona, Meddling Manzo talks about how she’s happy to go without if it means her husband doesn’t have to work hard to support his kids. Is work a cover for seeing “Jill” in his Pied-à-terre. More money due to spinoff, a camera crew following you around makes it hard to get freaky on the side, kids put on career path with maximum exposure equals no Jill. All for playing along this season with renewed interest to get said spinoff. Well played Ms Manzo! Two birds, one stone!

    This needs repeating: melissa & joe gorga remind me of the movie ‘ single white female’
    Where the roommate covets the other rommates life…takes the clothes, the friends, the life. TSIL wanted to be on rhnj when Teresa was on …went to Danielle, talked to producers until she got on and started to take over Teresa’s life…her show…her friends…
    Had the nerve after her 1st season to tell Teresa to leave the show! Bravo convinced the masses that Teresa was bad and Melissa was good. I have watched in horror as Melissa and Joe worked to destroy her in
    every single episode. For Teresa’s sake I
    hope she is DONE with them. She needs to defend herself and stop these sickening family members from destroying her and her family. Im done w BRAVO. Andy and his twisted producers are creeps.

      September 17, 2013 at 1:21 AM

      Bravo is totally responsible for ruining the lives. They edit and twist like crazy. The cast have signed contracts that keep them from leaving or telling the truth. I read that a year ago when Joe Giudice called Teresa the “c word” at the vineyard that T contacted her lawyers and tried to keep it from airing but Bravo put it on anyway. They are completely without morals. Andy Cohen is just sickening how he drools and makes fun of the women on the shows. And Bravo and Andy have gotten rich off of it. I hope they are investing huge amounts in Melissa’s music “career” so they will soon be bankrupt.

  34. September 17, 2013 at 1:23 AM

    Fame… This blog post is great at showing timeline and examples of proof from other shows.. Worth sharing 🙂 hope you repost


    By the way.. It is so irritating when the cast acts like they don’t know how this system works. Example:

    Producer: so teresa are your cousins cannolis edible? (Obviously bitchy question)

    Teresa: they ARE edible.. I’m proud of her blablabla

    Producer: let’s do that again u wre rolling your eyes

    Teresa: was I rolling my eyes?

    Now lets all pretend producers don’t exist. Just look at mob wives.l they all left due to producers causing shit behind the scenes.

    Off topic, but does anyone find it interesting that Manzo Clown announced today about her stupid spin off? Obviously rumors have been floating for a bit, but announced the week before Penny confronts Caroline and allegation of All cheating ? Granted Bravo will probably edit the whole thing out but if shown , I find it very convienent that Manzo Clown can say the”rumors” of the cheating was because people were jealous. I won’t be watching her show, just like I don’t buy the nasty Blk, her disgusting sauce, or advice book. If I wanted to learn how to be a two faced snake in the grass that could tell a lie so good I believed it myself , I would buy her or Meho’s book. Can’t believe Teresa didn’t get her own show. This will hopefully show bravo T is who gets the ratings and the others should be replaced.

    I wonder if the Stump had a violent temper since childhood or if this is a rather new trait due to the roids. Teresa certainly is very concerned about it and worries he will eventually be arrested for it. Oh ya, he was and Teresa saw it coming! Last season’s finale at the fashion show, Tre did not want her brother called, because she didn’t want him coming and flipping out and getting arrested. This season TB has shown increasing violence and rage: charging Juicy like a bull, losing control in Arizona, and attacking Johnny the Greek. Teresa begs TB in Arizona not to get violent when they confront Penny and makes him swear on their family. Whoops Teresa, you probably should have had him swear on his famewhore wife, you know family means nothing to him. The point is, even though her brother and his wife constantly beats her down, Teresa continues to worry about her little brother and to try to lead him away from trouble. That’s one of the things I love about her.

    • September 17, 2013 at 10:48 AM

      Teresa said she had never done a table flip before but her father and brother had. I think TB has been violent since childhood because many people at the christening where not shocked when he started to take a fit. If he is on roids, it probably accelerates what is already there.

    An excerpt from Kim D.’s blog, titled “Episode 16: Rumor Has It”, this week:

    “Question. At Chakra, why does Melissa act so happy when she walks over to Penny at the bar? If she and Joe really believe Penny is the one who is actually spreading these rumors why act so calm around her? And better yet, why is Joe so quick to point a finger at all the women with regards to this cheating accusation? Why not go right to the source? I didn’t start the rumor. Teresa didn’t start the rumor. Jan didn’t start the rumor. And Penny didn’t start the rumor. Melissa’s ex did! It was all over Twitter. Whether it did or did not happen, HE is the one Joe Gorga should be confronting! Maybe it is just easier to always blame Teresa. Hmm…”

      NCGal may be right. Prior to yesterday all of Penny’s blogs were entirely readable. Once the last blog was published, FRE had to redact (edit) because of being strong armed by, what I believe could be the Bravo/Sirens legal team.

      Penny must have signed a document/contract which prevents her from spilling, and Bravo/Sirens didn’t like what she was saying in her blogs. So now, it appears she is on a gag order like everyone else.

      What B/S (Bravo/Sirens) forgets is that those blogs have been copied and pasted by many people so even if FRE has to comply and redact, they still exist. The thing is those who haved saved the originals, should tread lightly – B/S may come after them as well.

      That is why FRE tweeted that all should read before she published Penny’s latest blog. She also tweeted yesterday something to the effect that (paraphrasing here) anyone who signs a draconian Bravo contract should have their head examined. FRE’s tweets are now protected.

        See Saddle’s comment upthread giving a link where Penny’s previous blogs remain intact and can be read in their entirety.

        Thanks, Saddle!!!

    Gia looks so much like Teresa in the above photo, she is turning into an absolutely beautiful young lady! And speaking of Gia, she is the one I feel most sorry for. Her pain and tears have been captured on film and memorialised forever on bravo, her song – that every cast member seems to have forgotten about – was so touching and emotionally charged that I can’t believe her Uncle and Godfather would let his ho-good wife continue her absurd and rather childish vendetta against his only Sister, which is the route of all his “beloved niece’s” anguish and torment. For her to write and then perform in front of everyone took a lot of courage and clearly she hoped it would change things – but Tarzan Boy is so self absorbed he continued on in his quest to take T down and for what, more parties, time away from his children and paps taking their picture and down market events? Sad sad sad…

      Has anyone “noticed” that in the last few episodes that Gia doesn’t even look at Zia TSIL? I found that interesting given the fact that we have heard that TSIL hung up on Gia not to long ago. I don’t blame Gia for not wanting anything to do with Zia TSIL, but I would surely hope that Bravotv would not put neice against aunt into a “storyline” . and on that note, were the children “forced” to sign a contract? If not, well, I think Gia is at the age that she could tell her reality thus far. and she better do it fast before all traces of her are gone as well. (A book about a preteen caught up in grown-up reality…I like the sound of that)*.* I would buy that book

        I did not hear Tsil hung up on Gia?? In the words of Katfish “What a fucking bitch!!”
        I too would buy that book, although I think when the HW’s sign their contract they sign their kids’ too… Shame really cause Gia probably knows A LOT of juicy stuff that didn’t get aired…

    Three years into the marriage, she realized Joe wasn’t going to change — so she decided she would. That’s when she became a woman who “caters” to her man.

      is it just me or is she looking a tad chubbier these days? Ugh TSIL is so cliché it hurts.

        It’s all the “non-drinking” she’s been doing…

    Fame please add 🙂

    Sources tell AllAboutTRH EXCLUSIVELY that they were, “Teresa called Melissa inviting her family to the birthday but Melissa said she wouldn’t be able to come because she and Joe would be at an event. Teresa understood and was okay with them not coming since she had an event to attend. Melissa then posted a photo of her at the Laurita’s house jarring tomato’s. It was shocking that Melissa wasn’t able to attend Audriana’s birthday but she did go to the Laurita’s.”

    As for Audriana’s Godmother, Dina? Sources add, “Dina wished Audriana a Happy Birthday and even took her out. Audriana has a great relationship with Dina.”

      I personally think they were filming for the manzo spin off pilot and melissa just couldn’t miss that camera time

    One of Melissa’s first positive book reviews by…SHOCKER! Her own sister who’s username on amazon.com is “Happily Married.” I click on the username to see a picture of Lysa Simpson and her husband.

    Is this how a sister reviews a book? Or is this how a sister *posing* as a real reader reviews a book? If my sis wrote a book I’d congratulate her, not recommend it to friends..

    “I found this book to be lighthearted, interesting and fun to read. I will be giving this book as a gift to my girlfriend who has an anniversary coming up. Definitely recommend purchasing it.”

    This chick has a public copy of Melissa Gorga GORGA’s repulsive, unautotuned, hot mess of a video on her facebook, https://www.facebook.com/diana.harmon.50. At least…it’s there right now, for the moment. 😉
