Proof the Gorgas Lied About Being Sick When Joe’s Father Was Hospitalized, Plus They Lied About Driving Him to the Hospital; Bravo Tells the Marco Sisters They Are “Too Ugly and Negative” for TV
FW reader Autumn (@AutumnLeaves61) sent me the photo above from Melissa’s Facebook page which proves that Joe and Melissa Gorga were lying about being sick when Joe’s father became so ill late Saturday night, January 5, 2013, that he had to be rushed by ambulance to the hospital (per Joe’s mother in season 5 episode 3).
On that night, Melissa posted the photo of the two of them out on the town with the tag, “Happy Saturday Night!” So the Gorga’s story that Joe was sick with the stomach flu and Melissa had a sore throat when Joe’s father was rushed to the hospital is a complete lie conjured up to protect themselves from blame and criticism.
This is the real story: After partying that Saturday night, Joe was in no condition (he probably was too tired, wasted or hungover) to drive his father to the hospital when his mother called in the early morning hours, but he didn’t want to tell her that, so he said he was sick. Since season 5 was taping at the time, they had to come up with stories, and act them out on camera, to cover their asses.
Joe and Melissa lied about being sick because they knew that Joe would look bad for not driving his father to the hospital and Melissa would look bad for waiting four days to visit him in ICU.
When Kim D confronted Melissa at Gia’s birthday party in season 5 episode 3, she asked Melissa if she visited her father-in-law in the hospital, and Melissa told Kim D she visited him the next day. Teresa overheard her and stepped in to clarify that it was four days later. Caught off guard and unable to keep her lies straight, Melissa said Joe drove his dad to the hospital at 3 AM that Saturday night.
To make matters worse, Melissa gave an interview on June 23, 2013, with The Hollywood Reporter and said:
“My husband was the one who rushed him to the hospital” [Melissa is labeling Joe’s mother a liar]. He got up in the middle of the night. Teresa was not there that night. My husband was, and he was coming down with something.”
Just five days earlier, in her June 17th Bravo blog, Melissa worded her story a little differently, saying:
“On Sunday at 3:00 AM, my mother-in-law called us to say Joe’s father couldn’t breathe. Joe didn’t hesitate. He got up and rushed to the hospital.”
Notice the subtle difference and intentional vagueness of her words: she told The Hollywood Reporter that “my husband was the one who rushed him to the hospital,” but wrote in her blog that “Joe got up and rushed to the hospital.”
Apparently, in November 2012, Joe Gorga did drive his father to the hospital for his scheduled pacemaker surgery (photo below) – Melissa thinks she is being slick by substituting this scheduled hospital stay in November 2012 with an emergency visit in January 2013.
Only a pathological liar would give an interview and flat out lie about an incident which was clearly recorded and televised during episode 3 (Teresa’s mother told her that she called an ambulance at 4 AM because Joe was sick too).

In an unrelated story, Bravo has decided the Marco sisters are too “ugly and negative” for TV. According to BlindGossip:
“For the past couple of seasons, Don Caro and Ashlee’s Mother and Stripper and Cannoli thought that if they teamed up against Teresa, that that they could bump her out and replace her with their own family members. Well, that plan didn’t work out for them. First of all, Teresa is the freaking star of RHONJ! She is the one who rakes in the viewers and the advertising dollars. Secondly, the entire plot of the show is about the Juicys fighting the Gorgons in an intergalactic space battle. They’re not going to kick off the Juicys just to make room for some more Gorgons. Finally, The Gorgonettes (Melissa’s sisters) hold absolutely no appeal for Real Housewives producers. So, back off, Gorgonettes! The producers don’t want you or your ‘ugly and negative’ Bumpits!”
“No, no, we get what they try and do on twitter and it takes the sparkle off the series; they won’t be housewives anytime soon.”
“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… Kim and Lysa want to be on the show so bad they both work on losing weight and getting plastic surgery like Melissa, but they are so ugly on the inside. I have the messages saved so I can prove everything.”
Another source told FW in April 2013 that Kim and Lysa are obsessed with the show:
“I have been told on good authority, and this has come from Kim (Melissa’s sister), that Kim was heartbroken when Melissa decided to ‘follow her dreams of being a singer’ because it is completely untrue. The footage you have seen of Melissa singing as a little girl is just that, a little girl being a girl. Her dream was never to sing. It was actually her sister Kim’s dream! Kim was devastated because she can actually sing and can sing very well, much much better than Melissa. I heard this before from a friend [edited out], but heard it again from another reliable source recently, so I truly believe that it is truth. [Edited out] Scottie Simpson (Lysa’s husband) hates the show and thinks that it has caused nothing but drama, and he really doesn’t want anything to do with it, but his wife (Lysa) is obsessed with it and would love to be on the show.”

Melissa Gorga’s Sister Dares BravoTV to “Keep Coming for My Sister”
On April 6, 2013, Melissa Gorga’s sister Lysa Simpson (also their nanny) tweeted BravoTV about messing with Melissa, saying: “Keep coming for my sister, I dare you.” It looks like Bravo is planning to air the cheating rumors about Melissa, which could be the reason for Lysa’s tweets (which she deleted the next day). Perhaps Melissa should have thought twice before making one of her season 4 storylines the rumor Teresa repeated to her brother, the one about Melissa leaving Joe for a richer man.

Melissa Gorga is Following Her Other Sister’s Dream of Being a Singer
Melissa’s other sister, Kim Pirrella, retweeted Lysa’s tweet: “If you want to get to my little sister, you have to go thru me! If you want to get to me, you have to go thru my big sister.” A source tells Fame-Whorgas that it was Kim, not Melissa, who dreamed of being a singer, and she “can sing very well, much much better than Melissa.”
The following is part of the e-mail Fame-Whorgas received from the source, who wishes to remain anonymous:
Things are getting really crazy in NJ!! I have heard that things are going to get way crazier.
All the stuff about Bryan and Love being friends and her hating Mel are very true. Bryan did not sell any stories, but they have been talking to his friends, and more of his friends will be coming forward because they are tired of what the Marcos are trying to do to Bryan. I think no one came forward because Melissa was pretty much a joke around TR (Toms River); but now that she is trying to hurt people (outside of Teresa’s family), people are getting angry.
I have been told on good authority, and this has come from Kim (Melissa’s sister), that Kim was heartbroken when Melissa decided to “follow her dreams of being a singer” because it is completely untrue. The footage you have seen of Melissa singing as a little girl is just that, a little girl being a girl. Her dream was never to sing. It was actually her sister Kim’s dream! Kim was devastated because she can actually sing and can sing very well, much much better than Melissa. I heard this before from a friend [edited out], but heard it again from another reliable source recently, so I truly believe that it is truth.
[Edited out] Scottie Simpson (Lysa’s husband) hates the show and thinks that it has caused nothing but drama, and he really doesn’t want anything to do with it, but his wife (Lysa) is obsessed with it and would love to be on the show.
[Edited out] said that Kim doesn’t even really like Melissa, and she has said that Melissa is selfish and not really a good person. I personally think that part of the reason Lysa and Kim are so ‘close’ with Melissa is because they want to get on the show (other family members definitely do as well); it seems to me that Lysa gets much more involved where as Kim seems not to (even more reason that I think Kim does honestly feel that way about Melissa).
Kim was featured as one of the “The Real Housewives of South Jersey 2013” in the The Boardwalk Journal (photo below), which is published by James Leonard Jr., the Gorga’s attorney. Kim, as well as Lysa, would like to be a reality TV star.
Danielle Staub Tweets Andy Cohen to “Fire Them ALL” and Says Caroline Manzo Should Apologize to Her Daughters for Saying They Have No Light in Their Eyes
Caroline Manzo appeared on Watch What Happens Live on March 28, 2013, to promote her book, and a caller asked her what was the one thing she regrets over all the seasons. Caroline replied:
“I regret my meeting with Danielle Staub. I was mean to her. And I don’t like being that person. I called her a clown. I just don’t like doing that, but it’s something that I had to do.
Danielle tweeted about Caroline’s comment:
“Let’s not forget saying my kids have no light in their eyes…my kids have beautiful light in their eyes and, if she were genuine, she would apologize to them.”
In response to the physical altercation at the grand opening of Posche 2, Danielle tweeted Bravo and Andy Cohen:
“STOP promoting this behavior! I’m truly disgusted that this continues. Fire them ALL.”
She also used the hashtag “#KARMAhasARRIVED”.
The following are the tweets from/to Danielle about Caroline and how disgusted she is with Bravo for promoting this type of behavior.
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.
