MELISSA GORGA: MeGo Addresses “Rumors”… Gorga’s Lawsuits…

May 16, 2012  9:45 am

                                               Melissa Gorga, Joe Gorga…

Melissa Gorga recently addressed “rumors” about why the Gorgas are selling BOTH their Montville and Jersey Shore homes.

MeGo insists that the Gorgas are financially stable (MeGo says to check public records!) and the reason they are selling their homes is to move BACK to Franklin Lakes, where MeGo says they lived before their present Montville home.

Of course, MeGo told all of this to HuffPo/Shuter, a Bravo mouth piece, where no questions are asked!

“The rumors that Joe and I can’t afford our mortgage payments and bills are 100 percent false,” Melissa said. “Since when does selling your house mean you are broke? We moved to Montville to be closer to Teresa [Giudice] and the cousins. We gave Montville a try, but ultimately we want to move back to Franklin Lakes before the kids reach an age where changing schools will have an effect on them. Plus, it’s closer to Joe’s work, and that’s where we see ourselves living in the long run.”

Still, rumors that the couple were living beyond their means in the Jersey mansion, “pretending” to be wealthy in order to be cast on the Bravo show, have followed the family. But Melissa insists that public documents held under her husband’s full name reveal the truth.

“For the record, we moved into our current house in 2008 and lived there for two years before I was signed to ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ in 2010,” Melissa said. “Joe built our last house in Franklin Lakes.  When we sell our house in Montville, we will move into a rental while Joe custom builds our next house.”

In checking public records, it seems as though the Gorga’s had some problems paying their bills!   A lot of people had to sue them to get paid!

  1. There is a link within the HuffPo article to a zillow.com page for a property in Franklin Lakes that was previously sold in 2006 for $2.45m, which is the amount MeGo referenced.

    • It’s the “149 PULIS AVE, FRANKLIN LKS, NJ,” which is also referenced in the two civil suits listed above. Too lazy and not interested enough to look further. ha.

      • And then it sold in 2008 for $1,750,000. Wonder if the Gorgas took it in the shorts?

  2. Just imagine how many people didn’t actually file….I don’t understand how people can not pay what they owe and then “flaunt” what they have ) or don’t.

    • You are so right. Most people just take the loss especially if the legal fees our way the debt. I think they just enter into contracts and don’t pay and bank on not going to court or negotiating down the original debt. Sad.

  3. Of course they didn’t pay. How else can you live large and spend like you mint money. She should never have said “we pay our bills”. Heffa please, the records above [prove quite the opposite. I know that running a business there may be an issue here and there with a contractor but not that many. Just goes to show how full of beans MeGo is. Looking down their nose at Joe Guidice when they are no better.

    • Well, at the reunion when Andy asked her if she regretted anything she said and she said the one thing was the “way pay our bills” comment. At the time I thought she was throwing Tree a bone but it looks like she had other reasons to regret it.

    • Joe giudice told chris lauritathat joe Gorga owes money at that dinner, and Manzo boys and Chris laurita looked like they did not believe him. Well looks like he was right and the gorgas are fake. They are all nuts.

  4. BOOOM! Say what horse face🐴? Say that again! 👂

    I’m loving it 🎶 pay back is a B!+€h
    Only because of your comments, making your self to be mighty and
    Better than Teresa.

  5. Wow wow Wow……..lol.

    I remember the reunion last season when Andy was prying Teresa about her bankruptcy….Melissa said in her annyoing voice…”its public record…” Well Meho….your financial and legal stuff is publice record too boo.

  6. I took some flack for apparently making Teresa sound like the Virgin Mary in another post, which I obviously know that she is not. But let me say- THIS is why I like her and think that her old-school ways sometimes lead her into getting outdone my Melissa, espcially during those camera confessionals. You see- Teresa KNOWS all this and could throw this at Melissa or her douchebag brother as soon as the cameras are rolling. She could talk about them behind their backs to the other ladies and basically revel in the Gorga hardships. But she doesn’t. Right or wrong, good or bad, table-flipping troublemaker or not, Teresa is honorable in her relationship with her brother and cares more about protecting his ego and name than fighting back. She’s let all the arrows they’ve slung strike her without using what she could to strike back. That’s precisely why I think she told him in private about the Melissa leaving him stuff- she thought she was protecting him. Maybe her methods are not always well thought through but I think her intention is good.

        • And even if by some stretch of the imagination all of this is in error and the Gorga’s are financially well off and having no issues… Teresa could still spin this to use to fight back. You know what I mean? The rest of the women have had no problem using heresay and spin to their advantage.

          • I agree. I can’t imagine what Melissa will be doing as she reads this on SH! Karma is a B..tch!

    • I give Teresa a break for the table-flip. She apparently invited Danielle to her home and she allegedly acted skanky. I sure wouldn’t have wanted to change those sheets. Teresa is quite naive. Then she realizes her mistake and gets mad. Danielle played innOcent and lied in her face then a sex tape comes out which made it look like Teresa was right all along.

      • Yes, and the Danielle thing of two seasons ago is very different than the Tree thing of today. I never really saw it as all the women ganging up on Danielle. I saw it more like someone who had ZERO connection to any of these women forcing herself on them and DEMANDING that they accept her. Whereas Tree of today would be just as happy if all these women would leave her the heck alone… including the skank her brother married. Yet they are the ones that set up these little get togethers and invite her knowing if she declines she will look like a douche so she goes and then BAM. Richie did have a point about his arm being important to him but if he got cancer in it then he would cut it off(purdy much same thing Juicy Joe was saying minus the bad werds) Sometimes families take way too much advantage of the fact that you are “stuck” with them so they take the green light to be buttwholes.

        • There is one thing that makes me think ” it’s deju vu all over again” as Yogi once said. When back then Don Caro used the same phrase , ” she’s going after my kids/ family” (paraphrasing here) when talking about Danielle and she recycled that line again while talking about Tre and the cookbook comments, yada, yada, insert more BS.

        • You are right! Just because your brother marries someone doesn’t mean you have to love them. I hope Tre can acknoledge this in time. It was a little heartbreaking to watch her brother Joe trying to talk to her at the pool party. You can see how much love is in his eyes for both his sister and his wife and looks like its breaking him apart. The bills? No excuse for that if you live the way they do…..either the Guidices or the Gorgas.

    • That is because she is his big sister and still sees him as her baby brother so she will protect him. She is very emotional about him and joe Gorga looks cold as ice when he talks to his sister. Unfortunately he does not give a shit about Teresa.

  7. They’re so fake. I know people that are in the same business as Joey. They LIVE in their home while they are building the new one, they don’t RENT something. Paying a mortgage is usually cheaper than rent isn’t it? Obviously they can’t afford to live in the mansion, they moved in when it was interest free and didn’t have to pay anything. They JUST converted the loan to a mortgage not long ago. If it was their ‘dream home’ intended to be lived in then wouldn’t they have had the mortgage from 2008. Unless they were trying to do something shady by living in ‘their’ home under a construction loan. Either way Melissa spins her story it still comes out shady and fake.

  8. According to public records, the Gorgas sold the 149 Pulis Ave, Franklin Lakes, NJ property for $2.45M on 7/14/06. Appears they have quite a few unpaid bills on that property. I see a pattern developing. Tee hee!

    • That was around the time their daughter was born. When they couldn’t afford diaper money.

      • and and and IF they ever had a time that they couldn’t afford diaper money then shouldn’t Mel have got her butt out there and got a job? This is another area that Tree mops the floor with her on.

      • Actually it was when Gino was born. So how couldn’t they afford diapers when they just sold their house for 2.4M and building a 3M one? So if it’s true, why not move to the Toms River house instead of renting a house and why build a house above your means? I guess diapers weren’t that important?

        • I think that diapers comment was b.s. for the cameras. I have a toddler, so I know that NOBODY with half a brain doesn’t make sure they buy diapers, (and food for the kids), before they buy anything else for the house. Wait, I said “half a brain”, so maybe that doesn’t apply to the Gorgas…

          • i agree with you. i don’t think i’ve ever met one person that didn’t get diapers for a baby. did she ever say when that was? i thought tre has said melissa told the family that there’s no way she’d not marry joe gorga when she saw his house…or something to that effect. so, wouldn’t he have had a big house when they first got married? you’re right about the diaper comment.

            • yes When she met him, he lived in the house in Franklin lakes they sold for 2.4M. So how exactly didnt they have money if he made a huge profit on that house, which he bought for 345,000 in 2001. I am sure he fix up the house but I doubt he put more then 500,000 into it.

  9. Wait until the lawsuits start popping out of the woodwork (literally) for Joey Gorgyle’s thoughtful decision to leave lead paint and black mold in his buildings instead of removing the toxic materials when he remodeled them. There is a page of contractors rattting him out. I wish I had bookmarked it.

    • Please find that page your talking about, I could follow up and find out more. Because if the allegations are true (which I know for a fact they are because no one in their right mind would come out with their real name in a lie), Joe Gorga is facing lawsuits from the families, the state, the federal govt. and also possible prison time. They take asbestos removal and not removing it serious and if not done right your in a heap of trouble.

  10. Melissa and Kathy were on Wendy today and Melissa gave the same story almost word for word. Oh and ps, did anyone notice Kathy’s eye makeup on her right bottom side was smugged? She was a mess.

    • Mego also appears to have borrowed the dress that Lisa Vanderpump wore at Andy’s Book Party in LA

      • Just like she wore the same dress to the reunion show that Teresa wore on her book cover. Originality is not her strength.

  11. Random thought. Antonia & Milania are like best friends. They were both born in 2006 A in January and M in February. this would put them both in Kindergarten. In the same town. They must see each other everyday at school no?

    • Good question. Hopefully they go to two different private schools. Heaven forbid those two fought over the treacherous who-is-the-best-homeroom-mommy territory. Class picture day would be another nightmare too.

  12. Anyone realize how Teresa always liked Lisa Vanderpump? Everytime someone asked about her favourite housewife she would say Lisa, even on the questionnaire Ms. SH sent out. HOWEVER Melissa always loved Bethenny even going as far as to say she would be the next Bethenny. Now all of a sudden she’s team Lisa? Mego needs to stop being so obvious with her copying.

  13. Does this mean that she’s the one about to file bankruptcy?
    Hey, I still wanna know who that was.

    • It’s Melissa and Joe Gorga, thats what I believe. It could be Chris and Jacqueline to head of that multimillion dollar lawsuit on them, but there lawyers have to be smart enough to know that filing a personal bankruptcy to hide ill gotten gains from a corporate bankruptcy won’t save them. In fact it opens them up to another charge federally.

      • I understood that they had already filed bankruptcy and it went through. Isn’t one of their creditors suing them and claiming they raided the company? I’m not sure how far they will get with their claims. Not saying it’s fair but usually the way it is.

  14. I live in the same town as Melissa and Teresa. Antonia and Milania do not go to the same school and neither Melissa nor Teresa are involved in school in any way. There are very active PTA’s in both schools and plenty of opportunities for both of them to volunteer. Neither one of them ever do anything in the schools. They go to back-to-school night. That’s about it. And the girls are both in public schools.

  15. What cracks me up is the $760 for the sprinkler guy. Seriously? Melissa wears shoes that cost more, they couldn’t pay that without a judgement? Talk about poor business ethics…
