Real Housewives of New Jersey: Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile… WHO PAID $10,000 TO DINE WITH KATHY AND RICHIE???

April 30, 2012  3:35 pm… 

While looking for something else, came across THIS…

…from January 2012…


There is so much speculation about Season Four of the Real Housewives of New Jersey…

… but, there is one person that will definitely appear on the upcoming season of the RHONJ… and he has strong ties to MeGo and Kathy.  So, who is it?

Before we get to that… who is “anonymous” who shelled out $10,000 to have some spaghetti with Kathy and Richie Wakile???

The presence of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” stars Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile helped raise extra money at a Saturday-night fundraiser for the family of Larry Bourquin, of Washington Township, N.J., who died in September.

The event raised $40,000 including $10,000 from an anonymous donor who bid that much to dine with Gorga and Wakile. Wakile brought along her husband, Richie, and children. Victoria and Joseph.

… It’s James Leonard…  famed hard-workin’ New Jersey attorney-at-law!

 James Leonard… remember him?  Really??

From the Leonard Law Group:

In May of 2010, Mr. Leonard was retained to represent Nicodemo Scarfo Jr., son of jailed Philadelphia / Atlantic City mob boss Nicodemo “Little Nicky” Scarfo on racketeering charges based out of Morris County. 

Later that year, Mr. Leonard was retained by Joe and Melissa Gorga to handle their contract negotiations with the Bravo TV network regarding the Gorga’s joining the popular reality television show The Real Housewives of New Jersey.  Rich and Kathy Wakile, who like the Gorga’s, joined The Real Housewives of New Jersey, also retained Mr. Leonard

Mr. Leonard appeared in two episodes of The Real Housewives of New Jersey / Season 3 and is scheduled to appear in at least one episode of Season 4, scheduled to air in 2012. 

Melissa still can’t sing!
