Insider Dishes on Melissa Gorga and Says Melissa Thinks Teresa Giudice is Behind Fame-Whorgas; Melissa Received a $300,000 Advance for Her Advice Book on Marriage (She Asked for $1 Million); Teresa Giudice’s Parents Wanted to Disown Melissa After She Accused Teresa of Calling Antonia Ugly
On July 6, 2013, Fame-Whorgas received the following e-mail.
I am writing to you regarding an article that RealityTea posted as an exclusive on July 3, 2013:
I would like for you to add to it by addressing other facts and issues.
I personally know the Gorgas, Wakiles and Giudices. I knew Melissa before I knew Teresa, so there are a few things I would like for you to address:
– Please address: Melissa is convinced that Teresa is behind FameWhorgas. Melissa can not seem to understand why someone would dedicate so much time to a blog about her – negatively!
Note from Fame: I am in no way affiliated with anyone on the show, including production. I have never had any contact with Teresa or any other cast member, their family members or friends. Teresa has nothing at all to do with this blog, and I am not part of any “army”!
Here is where the double standards comes in:
– Other blogs such as AllAboutTRH and Reality Tea – Melissa does not seem to understand that bloggers are merely giving their opinion; in other words; they call Melissa’s bluff and it drives Melissa crazy. She always says she knows it is Teresa behind it. Melissa does not see that these sites see how Melissa is so transparent!
Melissa will contact a blog and throw Teresa under the bus – exactly why people like yourself report what you do about Melissa!
– Speaking of… You all see through her transparent ways.
In one of Melissa’s Bravo Blogs last season, Melissa wrote ( I am paraphrasing here). “All I wanted was for my big sister [Teresa] to accept me.” That is a crock of shit. Yes, Melissa always envied Teresa. You saw for yourself how Melissa copied Teresa’s every move – down to the way Teresa had her original font on her website, among the million other things that Melissa copied off of Teresa. Caroline thinks Teresa should have been “flattered” or handled it better? Some would agree. However, despite the feuding that went on before Teresa was on the show, Melissa and her sisters were bashing and doing anything they could to sabotage Teresa. They went on blogs ridiculing Teresa. Lysa Simpon’s (notice the spelling) biggest mistake was signing her name to many of the comments. No one knew who Lysa was when the comments were made. You have posted the comments on your blog (Thank you!). No need to rehash.
– Melissa went out of her way to contact AllAboutTRH and tried to intimidate AllAboutTRH. The Gorgas and Wakiles were convinced that AllAboutTRH worked for Teresa.
Have you noticed every time an “fan” account pops up it never lasts long? GorgaFans.com, MarcoSisters, GorgaArmy, MelissaFans, etc? It is the demands they set forth. Melissa and her sisters cannot seem to understand when someone volunteers, or is even paid, people do not want to bash family members for them (Melissa and her sisters have paid or promised things in the past).
What is horrible about the Gorgas and Wakiles is they attempt to intimidate bloggers when the truth is reported. Makes them look worse. Their PR tried to tell them, but when you are trying to restore your reputation and have things to hide, that is how one acts.
GorgaFans.com did not get enough hits to qualify for ads, so they asked Melissa and her sisters if they could be paid until they build up traffic. You know how that went. But Lysa (again) promised to have them on the show. Lysa needs to stop making promises she cannot keep and needs to understand not everyone wants to be on camera. GorgaFans did not live near NJ – they live on the West Coast – and that is not what they wanted. They have families to support and blogging a fan site takes time. GorgaFans received more negative comments than it did good. Imagine running a fan site and getting negative comments constantly. Melissa and her sisters (the sisters are not Gorgas but, as always, have their hands in everything) wanted them to post everything they were doing, down to buying a family a hotel room during the Sandy disaster. The GorgaFans advised it was not a good idea because Melissa and Joe were getting enough grief for only helping people for attention. Melissa and her sisters wanted GorgaFans to attack anyone back who spoke negative about Melissa or them! GorgaFans did not want to handle things in that manner. GorgaFans advised them to simply ignore.
The main contributor at GorgaFans still cares for Melissa, so do not be surprised if she retracts – they had her sign a contract because of the falling out of a twitter fan account.
– Melissa wants Teresa to take blame for all the family problems while Melissa takes no responsibility. Have you noticed this season Melissa always excuses her behavior by saying, “I was giving Teresa a taste of her own medicine”? That is also complete bull shit. Reality: Melissa has always been this way. Melissa is great at playing the victim and manipulating the truth. You have covered these issues as well. (Thank you!)
– Melissa is the first to mention that Teresa’s marriage is fake – did you notice how angry Joe Gorga was when Joe Giudice said at the reunion, “Lets talk about how you met Melissa”?
Speaking of Joe Gorga! Where to begin? – Yes, Joe is on steroids.
– Melissa knows that Joe Gorga is insecure so she uses it to her advantage. It is really sad.
– Have you noticed how Joe whines about his and Teresa’s relationship, saying things like his heart is broken, constantly asking people to “talk” sense in to Teresa – but when it comes time for them to meet up, Joe treats Teresa like shit.
So your readers understand, the show is scripted to a point. Conversations are cut up as well. Here is an example: When Joe said he would start calling Melissa out on her behavior, that is not what Joe originally said. I know for a fact because someone who I speak to often was there.
Note from Fame: In the scene where Joe calls out Melissa on her behavior, Melissa’s hair is not as curly when she’s sitting on the bed typing on her laptop before Joe comes in to the room – when Joe enters the room and she hands the stack of clothes to Antonia as an excuse to get her out of the room so that Joe can call her out on the tweet about Teresa being the bankrupt one, it is curlier – so there was an obvious break in taping before they continued with the staged scene (a long enough break for Melissa to curl her hair). Hat tip to Longtimelistenerfirsttimecaller for pointing this out.
– Teresa and Melissa are encouraged to keep the drama going on and off season by staying in the tabloids. However, if you noticed when Teresa was in the tabloids last year, she was apologizing – but that upset everyone.
Note from Fame: Us Weekly publishes positive articles about Melissa; recently RadarOnline published a series of anti-Teresa articles (see the first comment to this article for links).
Melissa was saying things such as Joe Giudice hit on her and Teresa called Antonia ugly. That even threw BravoTV off. The “story” about Joe Giudice was funny.
When Teresa got on the show, Melissa started to wear extensions. Melissa’s hair was not that long then and still is not – if you re-watch Season 4 when they are at the shore house, Melissa has her hair pulled back in a bun; her bun is not full and you can see her natural Indian tail. You also can see her hair color is different colors in different scenes. Bad editing, but it shows you how things are shown out of sequence.
Melissa changed the way she dressed, stopped associating with people who she thought would not fit the “Reality TV Mold”. So, if you saw Melissa pre-RHONJ, lets just say, Joe Giudice was not interested. Joe Giudice never cared for Melissa – Joe Giudice never cared for Melissa because of the problems she started in the family.
As far as Teresa calling Antonia ugly? Teresa explained that well in her blog. What your readers do not know is that Teresa’s parents wanted to disown Melissa after that. Hopefully BravoTV does not manipulate the scenes. It is things like this, that Melissa does, that causes problems. Melissa is the stem of all family problems.
Look how everyone on the show blames Teresa for everything. It’s jealousy. The Gorgas, Wakiles, Manzos and Lauritas are all using each other. It is hard for Teresa to watch as Melissa hangs out with Teresa’s old friends.
So you understand, Melissa is on FameWhorgas constantly. :) Melissa has to read Joe the comments and posts. He can read things like text messages and tweets, but a whole post? No!
P.S. I forgot to mention that Melissa and Joe decided to shop a workout video when they heard Teresa was working on one. Here is the thing: you never heard Melissa mention a word about working out. Last season you saw how Teresa copied the lyrics of Survivor by Destiny Child on her blog. Teresa also mentioned in that blog post, as she did in her book, that she needs good workout music. Read the post again. Teresa has always worked out. Joe Gorga has always worked out as well, but Melissa would complain he spent more time at the gym than he did with her. And he smelled like sweat all the time. If you look at earlier pictures of Melissa, she is not as toned as she is now or as Teresa always has been. Melissa should just say, “As I get older, I realize I need to workout,” just as Teresa did with her first book – told the truth! Teresa said she never cooked before she and Juicy got married and that she wanted to share her family recipes.
Teresa making NYT best seller three times? Drives Caroline and Melissa nuts. Sad. Did you see Teresa laughing at the epic fail of Kathy’s cannoli kit ? Or her trash Kathy like Rich did on TV? Or laugh at Melissa for writing an “advice book”? No. Melissa had wanted to write a book for a while, however, the publishing companies were not offering what Melissa wanted – $1 million dollars!
Melissa got around $300,000 for this book up front. Get this: Melissa gushes that Teresa only got $250,000 for her first book. That was in a bad economy over five years ago. Not bad at all after only appearing on six episodes! Teresa had presented the book to publishers as the show aired. Contrary to Bethenny saying Teresa copied, Teresa started the book before the season aired and filmed. Teresa had also kept quiet about it because she did not know if anyone would publish it. So when Caroline and Jacqueline talked about a family cookbook, Teresa mentioned she was one writing one. Teresa did not copy. Teresa likes to be original.
Note from Fame: On July 8, 2013, StoopidHousewives published a story from a source using the same term, “Reality TV Mold.”
Melissa Gorga’s Fans Turn Against Her; Jacqueline Laurita Rejects Teresa Giudice’s Apology (Updated 9/4/2013)
“Kim told me that she and Lysa expected to be on the show by next season. They told me they would be taking Teresa and Kathy’s place. So we should show our support by tweeting about them too.” – ExMarcoSistersFan, May 4, 2013, Faux Reality Entertainment
Melissa Gorga Twitter Fan Site Shuts DOWN!
C’est la Vie: Potpourri
April 24, 2012
Today, in surprising news, the Marco Sisters Twitter fan site (@MarcoSistersFan) owner shut the site down, claiming that Melissa Gorga, sister in law of Teresa Giudice, has a double persona.
Melissa first became famous for joining the Real Housewives of New Jersey, where Teresa was already starring on, in an effort to defame and publicly humiliate Giudice.
The owner of the Twitter site acknowledged Melissa’s malicious motives in joining the show and also stated that she found the first episode to be “extremely disturbing.”
The twitter site owner also states that Melissa’s husband and Teresa’s brother, Joe, is a “vile man who will stop at nothing to bring his sister down unless he gets camera time.”
Season four of the series premiered Sunday to the Bravo network’s highest ratings, however many viewers were disappointed with the Giudice bash fest by all four other castmates, including both Melissa and Joe.
I believe that this is an interesting development for this family. I’m not surprised and will be happily awaiting for others to jump ship as the season and true motives and intentions continue to come forward.
From MarcoSistersFan on Twitter:
I am sorry to say that I will be closing down this [Twitter] account very shortly. After some time, I’ve become aware of Melissa Gorga’s double persona. She has proved to be a narcissist and has showed an extremely passive aggressive attitude. I also found Joe Gorga’s actions in the premiere episode [of season 4] to be extremely disturbing. This family will stop at nothing to bring Teresa down. Joe Gorga is a vile man who will stop at nothing to bring his sister down. Teresa has showed us viewers that she can rise above the pettiness.
Melissa came on the show with the intent to hurt, and that’s something I can no longer support. Her makeup artist should be reprimanded for talking ill of her sister-in-law.
Melissa Gorga, you came on the show to air out your dirty family laundry and did not care who got hurt on your path to “fame.” You’re a lousy singer. Your husband is a famewhore; he just wants to be made into a 6th housewife!
I am tweeting to let you all know that Melissa and Joe Gorga are not innocent. They try to portray themselves as such, but it is an ACT! Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga are phonies. They want America to believe they are victims when in reality they are SCUM.
This season [season 4] will put more things into perspective for all you fans of the Gorgas! Team Teresa! Teresa Giudice, I am so sorry if I ever wrote anything negative about you. I see the truth now! You’re amazing, as a mother, sister, daughter, friend, etc. Don’t ever let anybody tell you otherwise! Shine on!
Caroline controls Jacqueline. It’s sick!
I once tweeted Jacqueline something in defense of Teresa, and I was immediately DM’ed by the Marco sisters asking to delete my tweets because Jac was their friend. They never once asked me to delete anything negative I wrote about Teresa!
RHWGOSSIP, give it a rest, and take your head out of the Gorga’s ass! We see the truth! RHWGOSSIP, you would love the world to believe that everyone HATES Teresa, but the truth I see is that she clearly has a bigger fan-base than you can fathom!
Yes, I did lie about @bino989 sending me DMs. I’m sorry. I was told that you and that blogger site were harassing the Marco sisters! I was used as a shield to protect them!
Lysa Simpson, why don’t you tell everyone how you had no problem letting me speak in defense of you guys and how you had no problem if I threw Teresa under the bus. Lysa believes that Bino and AlllAboutTRH are the ones who were starting the most mess for them.
I am not proud of my actions. I was just merely a fan in the beginning trying to protect those I was a fan of. I’m glad I realized what a mistake that was.
Note: MarcoSistersFan is now ExMarcoSistersFan on Twitter.

UPDATE on 4/27/2012: MarcoSistersFan shutdown her Twitter account in disgust over Melissa Gorga and her sisters’ behavior. The fan site owner then needed a break from all of this nastiness on Twitter, so she took a hiatus to regain composure. The Marco Sisters then DM’d her to DELETE her account [direct messages here]! This was the breaking point and when she decided to reveal the truth about these sisters.
There seems to be one common denominator which which permeates all Teresa’s failed relationships. Teresa and Joe were close. Then Melissa entered the picture. Kathy and Teresa were close. Enter Melissa. Jacqueline, Caroline and Teresa were close. Enter Melissa. Caroline has said that her problems with Teresa stem from more than the cookbook. She has alluded to “rumors” that got back to her. There didn’t seem to be any rumors until season three. Enter Melissa. If I were the Church Lady I’d say, could it be Satan? But, since I’m not, I’ll just say, could it be Melissa? [Njonlooker, AllAboutTRH.com, April 26, 2012]
[In season 2]Melissa AND Joe wanted to come on to surprise Teresa and be on-camera friends with Danielle. I wish that did happen because maybe Caroline and Jacqueline would not be believing all of Melissa’s lies like you will see in season 4… Melissa knows how to lie and get what she wants, but the truth will come out… Melissa is a complete fake. She has tried to get on the show; it never happened until she stalked Danielle and made a video WITH Joe (nice brother) saying they will ‘destroy Teresa’. Yet, they call Teresa garbage for working to support her family and keep a beautiful roof over her family’s head… Like Danielle can confirm, Mel was dying to film scenes with her similar to the ones she does with her sisters and Kathy, where she fabricates lies and bitches about Tre… Joey G and Melissa filmed a tape where they, in the style of the Sopranos, promised Bravo execs they would ‘expose’ and ‘destroy’ Teresa. They also guaranteed to give Tre what she has given them ‘…their whole life’. [Insider Commenting at Reality Tea, August and September 2011]
Melissa’s strategy this season was to play victim during filming. She is just a better ‘actress’ than some of the other girls. She really is playing the game of the ‘victim.’ Melissa is very happy the way things turned out. She couldn’t wait to get in the group and turn them all against Teresa. [Inside Source at Reality Tea, May 6, 2012]
When Danielle brought up Melissa at the reunion, Teresa figured out that it was Melissa and Kathy who were leaking her private information to tabloids and online. Melissa was making money off of Teresa! So why would she turn around and tell Melissa, Joe and Kathy ANYTHING about herself? So THEY can profit off of it? At least this way [selling her apologies to In Touch], Teresa can ensure the only one profiting off her misfortune is Teresa and her children. They are just angry they can’t make money off her anymore. [Say What??, AllAboutTRH.com, May 3, 2012]
Conspiracy to Defame Teresa (29 Against 1)
The Marco sisters and their cronies will not be happy until Teresa is no longer on RHONJ, her husband is in jail, she is broke, and her four children are homeless. It was Melissa and her evil sisters who instigated this whole thing that turned the show into such a train wreck. Theirs is a well-planned conspiracy to ruin Teresa’s reality career so that Melissa can have the spotlight along with her husband and sisters. Caroline signed on to the plan because she wants Teresa off the show just as bad as Melissa. Jacqueline is a sucker and fell for the lies being fed to her by the Marcos.
So in this conspiracy to defame Teresa, we have the following, lead by the Marco sisters, working to bring Teresa down (28 against 1):
Joe Gorga (blood relative of Teresa and her children who told her that “you need to fall”)
Kathy Wakile (blood relative of Teresa and her children)
Rosie Pierri (blood relative of Teresa and her children
The Wakile Children (blood relatives of Teresa and her children)
Donna Marco (Melissa’s mother)
Lysa Simpson (Melissa’s sister)
Kim Pirrella (Melissa’s sister)
Joe Pirrella (Kim’s husband)
Lou Marco Orlick (Melissa’s aunt)
George Miguel Costa (Melissa’s makeup artist)
Tara Bogota (Melissa’s cousin)
Bonnie Grippe (Jacqueline’s mother)
Sheila Marino-Giudice (Teresa’s SIL who finally came to her senses and left the dark side to support Teresa)
Jacqueline Laurita Conspires with the Marco Sisters and Rejects Teresa Guidice’s Apology
“I once tweeted Jacqueline something in defense of Teresa, and I was immediately DM’ed by the Marco sisters asking to delete my tweets because Jac was their friend. They never once asked me to delete anything negative I wrote about Teresa!” – MarcoSistersFan, April 25, 2012
“@JacLaurita You look beautiful!” – Donna Marco (Melissa’s mother), April 25, 2012
Jacqueline shared with others private discussions that she had with Teresa when they were friends. She is a backstabber and the most disloyal of friends. She ‘direct messages’ people on Twitter with negative comments about Teresa and then blocks them so that can’t reply. All of these housewives and their husbands, their children, and their other relatives and friends ganged up on Teresa and talked trash about her.
