“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.” – Melissa Gorga, Penny’s Not a Reliable Source, September 16, 2013

Although FW will no longer be giving scoops or doing research on the Housewives, the blog is still a forum for you to discuss their shenanigans and the fakeness of the show and other things of interest. Once the season is over, FW will be covering new topics – I’m open to suggestions, so please don’t hesitate to let me know what you’re thinking! Until then, the following is a preview for episode 17 (the full episode should be comical since you get to hear Melissa sing a few notes live, with Joe admitting she doesn’t have the best voice)...

If you plan to amuse yourself by watching the remaining two episodes (and the season 5 reunion special, which premieres on October 6th – RumorFix reported that the 15-hour production was so boring that serious consideration is now underway as to who will return and who will NOT be invited back in season 6), remember that footage is shown out of sequence and most of it is fake (except the ambush on Penny Drossos-Karagiorgis and her husband John – everyone was in on that but them):

1. The Posche 2 grand opening at Moxie Salon was on March 30, 2013 (this is when Jacqueline and Caroline confront Penny, and then later Joe Gorga and the Lauritas assault Penny’s husband John).

2. Melissa and Joe went to Johnny Wright’s “compound” in Orlando, Florida on June 28, 2013, and this is also when Melissa sang live without autotune at XL106.7 (FW was the the first to report this on August 27, 2013) but all copies of her live performance have been removed from the internet since the video proves she can’t sing.

3. Melissa’s and Joe’s testimonials (THs) seen in the screen shots below were taped in July 2013, when Bravo decided they needed more scripted interviews for the revised ending to season 5.

UPDATE 11:00 PM EST: Commentary after watching season 5 episode 17.

Well, now we know why producers didn’t show the December 3, 2012 footage with Penny, Kim D and Teresa where she takes the phone call from Mike about Melissa cheating in the Sushi Lounge parking lot the summer of 2009.

It’s because they couldn’t ambush the Greeks if they had shown that, especially when it actually occurred, at the very beginning of season 5. It would explain that Teresa does indeed know Penny.

Teresa is an idiot for denying that she knows the Greeks. JohnnyTheGrk gave her a donation when she was raising money during her stint on the Celebrity Apprentice and he got her a gig at a family member’s business, which explains text messages between them.

And, MOST IMPORTANTLY, the Greeks and Teresa all met at the season 4 Posche Fashion Show on September 27, 2011 (the season finale), if not earlier.

greeks 28
All of this is really no big deal, since producers are the ones behind it all, but it becomes a big deal because Teresa denies any involvement.

It’s all so ridiculous and a repeat of the season 4 finale, but this time it’s about cheating vs. stripping, and this time Bravo made sure the entire cast set out to takedown the Greeks.

This is the MO of RHONJ – the cast always has to be ganging up on somebody (seasons 1 & 2 it was Danielle, seasons 3 & 4 it was Teresa; and season 5 it’s the Greeks)! And this is why I hate this show – nothing but lies and deception and always a target for their fury when it should be directed at themselves for being low-down, dirty, rotten famewhores! Have some integrity people!

Caroline isn’t enraged because the Greeks “came between a family,” and she knows the Greeks didn’t say anything about the Lauritas or Manzos (at that time) – she’s trying to discredit the Greeks because she knows they can spill the tea on Al Manzo’s long-term affair with Jill (which Penny mentioned when Caroline got in her face at the Posche 2 grand opening in the Moxie Salon, but Caroline ranted and raved until the producers agreed to edit it out). And they all think the Greeks are behind Fame-Whorgas, but nobody other than me is behind this blog!

They are blaming the Greeks for the blogs about the Lauritas exploiting autism – NEWSFLASH! – they had nothing to do with it! And Chris and Jacqueline know the Greeks never said anything about Nicholas not being autistic, which is why Jacqueline had to get drunk before approaching Penny with that big ole lie (fed to her by production and reinforced by Caroline because she needs to shutup Penny to keep her secrets hidden).

If JohnnyTheGrk had tweeted about Nicholas, Bravo would have shown the tweet.

autism 1
autism 2

They all are pretending they don’t know Penny (notice how Penny was smiling when Jacqueline approached and that Penny addressed her by name). Caroline and Jacqueline called Penny when they were in Arizona a week before the Posche 2 event, trying their hardest to upset Penny by telling her that Teresa was saying hurtful things about her. And the week before that, Joe Gorga and Rich Wakile met with Penny’s husband John to convince him that if Penny agreed to say Teresa put her up to revealing Melissa as a cheater, she could be on RHONJ next season. Just a few weeks before all of this, the Gorgas met with Penny at Chakra (a meeting arranged and filmed by production) to tell her that Teresa was calling her a stalker and telling everyone that she didn’t like her at all.

But psychological manipulation didn’t work on Penny, so they had to come up with a new plan.

The new plan was to convince Penny that they had all made up. The Wakiles were put in charge of hoodwinking the Greeks into believing this new plan, so they called Penny the night before the Posche 2 event, telling her that because Teresa told her to squash the rumors, they had all made up, and the cast wanted the Greeks to celebrate with them by coming to the event. Producers also called the Greeks numerous times to make sure they were coming.

When the Greeks got to the event, producers made Penny go into the party right away, but told her husband John that he had to wait outside with their friends until Penny was done (without further explanation). Of course, the reason he was made to wait outside was because the cast was inside ambushing Penny. When they were done with Penny, production brought in John, who was immediately confronted by Joe Gorga. Joe charged at John and started throwing punches, and Chris Laurita jumped in, throwing punches as well, all while John was being held back by security. Then Jacqueline stood on a chair, took off her stiletto-heeled shoe, and began to hit John in the head with it.

And that, my friends, is premeditated assault.

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 218 comments

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, “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.

@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.

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 Gorga Sings Her New Single “Never Let Me Go” Live Without Autotune and Attends VMAs; Giudice’s Friends and Relatives “Cause Ruckus” on Ship Bottom Beach Over $5 Per Person Beach Fee

Melissa Gorga’s Live Performance Without Autotune of “Never Let Me Go” on XL106.7

During her appearance on XL106.7′s morning radio show with Johnny House in Orlando, Florida on June 28, 2013, Melissa Gorga sang her new single “Never Let Me Go,” which was released on August 25, 2013.

Play the video above to watch her dance and listen to her sing without autotune, or click on the link below for the actual interview as well as her live performance (8:50 mark): (like all the other copies, this one has also been taken down by demand)

For some reason the radio station waited until two weeks ago to upload the video – perhaps they were trying to spare her the embarrassment. However, it is more likely that someone at the radio station wanted us to hear her real voice instead of her singing along to a backing track, where her vocals are barely heard over the autotuned recording. Before the video was uploaded, the track with her vocals must have been isolated so it could be heard over the backing track she was singing along to – thank you XL106.7 for allowing us to hear the real Melissa Gorga, without autotune!

UPDATE 1: The video uploaded to by the radio station XL106.7 was taken down on August 28, 2013 shortly after this story was published at FW.

UPDATE 2: The copy of the video at also has been removed as of 1:45 AM on August 29, 2013.

UPDATE 3: Another copy of the video at youtube was taken down around 3 PM on August 29, 2013. Melissa doesn’t want people to know how bad she sings without autotune – she even demanded it be removed from youtube by the radio station that recorded the live performance (however, she has no problem with the dubbed over version of the performance in the video below).

Another version of the video was uploaded two months ago by one of the backup dancers – the auto-tuned recording of the song is dubbed over Melissa singing live (see video below).

Melissa Gorga’s Live Performance Dubbed Over With Auto-tuned Recording

FW published a story on July 13, 2013 (link below) about Melissa’s trip to Orlando, where she also sang off key with a backing track at Red, Hot and Boom:

Melissa Sings Off Key with a Backing Track at Red, Hot and Boom in Orlando

Joe and Melissa Gorga attended MTV’s Video Music Awards (VMAs) on August 25, 2013 – Melissa boasted that Justin Timberlake’s manager, Johnny Wright, who has been managing Melissa’s music career since October 2012, gave her tickets (seat fillers), which she shared with her two sisters (what kind of parking lot favors have Melissa and her sisters promised Johnny?!).

s5 205 d

“Joe and I got to go to MTV’s Video Music Awards last night in Brooklyn. It was my very first time at the VMAs. The energy there is amazing and vibe is so relaxed. Fans were screaming at their favorite celebs going down the red carpet and everyone had a smile on their face! All of the performances were great, but there is no denying that Justin Timberlake blew the roof off. His performance gave me chills. He is one of the most humble and sweetest guys out there. He deserved his special award on so many levels. He was beyond amazing. God Bless him. I’ve been watching the VMAs for as long as I can remember, and to be there was more than I could have ever asked for. Thank you Johnny Wright for making it happen.” – Melissa Gorga’s Bravo blog, Melissa’s Trip to the Emergency Room, Season 5 Episode 13, August 26, 2013

Click the link below for a compilation of the ‘Real Housewives’ singing without autotune:

Us Weekly, the magazine Bravo is using to push Melissa to the forefront, included a photo of Melissa in their coverage of the VMAs. RadarOnline (shocker!) and OK! magazine put her on their “best dressed” lists for the event.
