MELISSA GORGA: Joe Gorga’s MortgageMess…

October 17, 2012   10:30 pm  

“Oh, the tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!”

Melissa Gorga laid it all out in her last BravoBlog.  MeGo said that anyone could look up her home information online and see that she and Joe Gorga are NOT broke or anywhere near broke.  Hmmmm….

“When Joe Giudice told Joey Gorga to “Pay Your Bills” we wondered why would he make such a statement. . .

Joey Gorga was a successful contractor who lavished his wife with a recording studios, a Bentley and over the top gifts.  Melissa Gorga repeatedly stated that they are not financially strapped, nor was that the reason they are selling their love shack.  So why would Joe Giudice make such an odd statement?”

These people are posin’!!

    • Its a bit late for her to be blaming the economy. Things fell apart for the Giudices RIGHT after the GFC hit. Whilst i’m sure some of their problems are due to living above their means, its not all their fault.
      Also Tree picked a HW related business that would make her money. Melissa can’t carry a tune in a bucket & will never have a proper singing career.

If you fool youself or let someone else fool you because you can’t be comfortable any other way, that makes you smarter than everyone else , right? ;P I’m sure she’ll know Mz.GaGa right off the charts. uhmm, uhmm, (oh that was just me clearing my throat) ;D

      • when you think of all the American Idol contestants with AMAZING VOICES.. that after the show.. no one heard from them again.. and what does this poser think is going to happen to her??? There was a contestant on the Voice from Alaska.. that was i think #3 with the most hits on U-Tube and guess what he didn’t “make it” in the battle round…. So her narcissitic personality and her hubbies “I’ll do anything for attention” is unbelievable.. and i think the whole stripper thing was PLANNED for her to have her covers.. now she’s had 2 due to the story.. Sick people will do ANYTHING TO BE RELEVANT… I hope Teresa keeps HER CHILDREN AWAY FROM SUCH A DIABOLICAL WOMAN.. sadly her hate for Teresa runs sooo deep.. i’d be afraid to have my children babysat or watched by someone with such horrible agendas.. I hate to say that.. but that’s how i feel!

  3. No sh*t they are having money issues. I said this this the first season those to scumbags were on RHONJ. Melissa was to busy blowing it out of her ass how well off they were. Well the type of business her husband is in has not been doing well for years now, so unless he was the ONLY person to step in shit and this economy didn’t affect or she is a bold face Bullsh*tter!!! Also what doesn’t add up is she came onto the show bragging how this was a present for her, her “dream” home, then she claimed they were selling because this house was always meant to be flipped because thats what her husband does for a living, now 1 year later teresa and her “bully” daughters will just torture her sweet child that she has to protect and get out of town. I like to know who was protecting her daughter at that white trash group sex party they had when every adult was under the innfluence of something and her daughter was almost trampled on???

    • Jen, I’m with you. The shore trash party spoke volumes about their priorities. I have worked with children a good deal of my life and I was shocked and appalled that the party occurred in the first place given that I had some expectation of values from the Gorgas and the Wakiles. I can blame Bravo but the adults share equally in the blame.
      Teresa’s concerns are not unsubstantiated.

      • Aint…great comments! I was appalled by that party too. Who was watching the children that night? Also, if they’ll behave like this in front of cameras, can you imagine how they act when the cameras are not there??? It’s frightening for the little children. They should have been reported to CPS when that aired on TV. My husband and I have always had parties and had fun but NEVER anything like that and NEVER in front of our children. Normal people just don’t. do. that. It’s trashy, low class behavior and I can’t believe Bravo aired it.

        • IMO. Bravo encouraged all that risky behavior. It was well past the kid’s bedtime and they should never have been subjected to drunken adults having a gropefest in the hot tub. ITA with you if the Gorgas were not to have that lowlife crapfest whip it party in front of the children then what goes on behind closed doors. Stumpy called Antonia a c**kblocker and while rutting around like an animal in heat.

But, it also got me literally sick to my stomach to see Tree’s kids physically abuse each other too. Throwing a sibling around like a ragdoll while Bravo films, is criminal.

  4. About a year ago I went to the website celebritynetworth.com and it said that JoGo and MeHo were worth 15 million dollars, after the reunion when Juicy told the hobbit to pay his bills I checked again. Now it say they are -1,500,00. Of all the ways MeHo wants to copy Tree………really? JoGo better start looking for a new poison receptacle cuz the one he has now has bled him dry! Now the comment about MeHo wanting to look SEXY for a head of a record label makes more sense. She is ready to trade in her now broke husband for one with real money in their bank account!

    • Yep, she is ready to trade up! I wonder if she was trying to look like J Lo (when she was being trained on choreography by J Lo’s ex husband Chris Judd) thinking that she could land Chris Judd?

She will never, ever in a million years ever come close to looking like J Lo or having an ounce of her talent!

  5. I’ve seen sites going back several months on this also. I don’t know if they ever eggmitted it was a house they were just building to sale or if they wanted everyone to believe it was theirs but, that story has been around awhile. There are stories that they should have moved out a good while back & didn’t & they are said to owe alot because of they stayed & couldn’t sale. It sounds like they were paying more attention to being on this show than what they needed to do to have it sale.

  6. I get that everyone (well lots of people) wants to be a star but they have gone overboard. Mego should be smarter and realize that she does have three children. She let her husband get underwater and continues to sink him further and further so she can look rich. I feel bad for him. He totally looks like a simpleton. When her 15 minutes of fame are up, his family will be torn up, they will be broker than broke and there won’t be squat left for her children. Hope her fake ass teaching degree can land her a job or maybe she will go back to Lookers to work.

  7. You know, and maybe this is just me, but I’ve heard them say how hard Joe Gorga works. Oddly, I’ve never seen it. Say what you will about Juicy, I’ve seen him cooking, doing work on his garage, and even slinging pizzas. I remember that Joe Gorga got really upset regarding that garage and then telling his Sister that she could help with the parents bills, but If he’s paying all his parents bills, why are they not speaking to him? There are so many holes in the Gorga stories. I would love to be a fly on their wall. I think they are jealous of Teresa, pissed off that in spite of their efforts she still has over 1/3 of the viewers on her side and is the most popular (love or hate her it’s true.) I think Joe Gorga is the baby and got used to always getting his way.

  8. hey hate Tre for the same reason any bully hates. It’s not what the other person is or should be , it’s based on what the bully is & should be. I’ve seen people like that sit & cry over what’s wrong in their life but won’t admit to it? I remember a girl from h/s who tried her best to bully some of us .I’m not the bullied type & neither were some of the others so she was ignored but kept her silliness up because she thought she was fooling someone. Then near the last day of school she was in class on time (very rare) & had her head down crying her eyes out. The teacher finally asked her what was wrong & she said she had failed her English class & wouldn’t be allowed to receive her degree with the rest of the class. I mean you would think the someone had harmed someone in her family the way she was so upset. The teacher lectured her a minute on knowing better & just let her sit there & cry. Bullies are thes people who know somethings wrong , might even know what it is, but just can’t face it. Whatever turned Caro so hateful & sad , it’s not Tre & I suspect she knows that but can’t find it in her to face whatever it is. (Bad marriage I suspect) Now what Jax problem is , other than the “liquids” thing , I have no idea. Chris L seems to care about her aleast somewhat. Maybe she just doesn’t care back but stays for the money?? Or maybe it’s the legal thing.??

    • Thanks Made! Loved the clip and so apropos. So Teresa loaned her brother to get out of the lawn maintenance business and start a construction business. Juicy and Tre then loaned money so that Jogo could have a nice home. I wonder why MeGo didn’t mention any of that when she was discussing the Bravo pie that she and Wonkili deserved a piece of? Amazing that when Teresa needed help her brother was MIA. The Gorga Jrs. (MeGo and Joey) must not be playing with a full deck if they thought they could go on a reality show and all this wouldn’t see the light of day?

      • I agree. I can totally see it happening that way since my husband helped my little brother out in a similar way. I saw a flash of fear in JoGo with his “ya bum” thing.

        • Joey Gorga was practically crawling on his belly with that apology to Kim D. Why would Joey G back off very clear allegations that Kim D is a coke ho and how would he know anything about drugs? If he and Melissa wanted to hurt Kim D that allegation alone would certainly harm her business and drive away moneyed clientele who do not want to be associated with even the whiff of scandal. Yet Bravo didn’t edit those comments and how many years has Bravo filmed the fake drama at a Posche fashion show? Bravo does not mind pushing the edge of the envelope. IMO the producers are pushing the boundaries as well as some unsavory characters down the viewers throats. In addition we are subjected to constant PSAs about drugs ,bullying yet Bravo’s agenda and story lines are completely at odds with those messages.

    7:33AM – 17 Oct 12

    Ok, curiosity got the best of me, cause I never heard mention of this Fred Caruso guy, but I found this article dated Oct. 3, 2006 about a guy named Fred Caruso from New Jersey. If Melissa was mixed up in drugs, could he have been her alleged drug supplier?? IF it is the same Fred Caruso? Very interesting!
    Here’s the article:

    NEW JERSEY MAN SENTENCED FOR CONSPIRACY TO: DISTRIBUTE ECSTASY;
    RETALIATE AGAINST A WITNESS; AND COMMIT KIDNAPING

    BALTIMORE, Maryland – Fred Caruso, age 31, of Clifton, New Jersey, was sentenced today to 163 months in prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release for conspiracy to distribute Ecstasy, conspiracy to retaliate against a witness, conspiracy to distribute ketamine and conspiracy to commit kidnaping, announced United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.

    According to the statement of facts presented at his guilty plea, from 1999 through 2000 Caruso conspired with others to distribute ecstasy in Maryland and New Jersey. In November 2000 Caruso arranged to sell ecstasy to an established customer, Thomas Dixon, and sent a courier with approximately 41,000 tablets of ecstasy to Maryland to meet Dixon. Law enforcement officers were conducting surveillance of Dixon and observed the courier place two large shopping bags in Dixon’s vehicle. Dixon and the courier were arrested and the ecstasy was recovered. Dixon agreed to cooperate with law enforcement and made monitored calls to Caruso, who admitted to supplying the pills and sending the courier to deliver them.

    Caruso was indicted in Maryland on charges of conspiracy to distribute ecstasy and a trial date was set for October 2001. In preparation for trial, the government provided copies of the monitored conversations between Caruso and Dixon to Caruso. The trial was subsequently postponed to allow the parties to conduct plea negotiations. On February 24, 2002 Thomas Dixon was shot six times as he left his home. He survived, but suffered permanent injuries as a result of the shooting. Court documents show that Caruso admitted to soliciting and hiring individuals to shoot Dixon in order to prevent him from testifying in the federal case.

    In a New Jersey case that was transferred to Maryland, between October 10 and 17, 2002 Caruso and others kidnaped a victim, beat the victim repeatedly, threatened the victim with a gun, transported the victim from New York to New Jersey and eventually returned to New York where the victim was released. In addition, on December 18, 2002 a Passaic County New
    Jersey police detective witnessed Caruso distribute 300 bottles of ketamine to another person.

    Dixon, age 40, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute ecstasy and was sentenced to two years probation on April 14, 2004.

    United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein thanked the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Baltimore City Police Department and the Baltimore County Police Department for their investigative work in this Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force case. Mr. Rosenstein also praised Assistant United States Attorney Christopher Romano, who prosecuted the case.

One of the articles said the taxes on that monstrosity or a house was currently $68k a year, that is roughly $5700 a month. There is no way in hell they can afford that, their Bravo checks coupled with whatever appearance fees she is earning is in way, shape or form covering that kind of bill. Then you add the mortgage and the monthly upkeep, she better start saying that Tre is stalking her and that she needs to sell that house ASAP.
