REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY: Dina Manzo Separated “Since October”… Melissa Gorga “Who Is Butch”?

The reason why Dina Manzo was so expressive re Brandi Glanville’s marital issues last month…

Dina confirmed what has been rumored for quite a while… from SH January 8, 2012.

Dina and Tommy Manzo are over, according to @DinaManzo.

There is quite a stir being caused by a former friend of Melissa Gorga’s on twitter…. @Bryan_bulldog.

It’s a great time to take a look back at those “Damn Melissa Emails”… could “Bryan” be “Butch” who is mentioned in the first “Melissa Email”?
Melissa Lookers PG

For some reason, there is a suspicion that “Bryan” is a newer and actually REAL version of “RoxyPoxyGirl“!  It will be interesting to see if this person does a tell-all re his relationship with Melissa Gorga.  IMO, this is all to build up interest in season five of the  RHONJ.

May 11, 2011  9:54 pm

I received the following email:

Melissa is a complete faker. Worse than Teresa b/c she never even intended to live in her “dream house.” It was a construction model her husband built, and they are staying there (illegally) until their construction loan balloon payment becomes due next year. They want to look rich for Bravo, but they plan on bailing on their house and moving to LA when it’s due next year (to pursue 31-year-old, mother of 3 Melissa’s dream of being a “pop star”).To build their “dream house,” Joe & Melissa Gorga got a “construction loan” — meaning a short-term loan to build the property to sell it for profit to a buyer, what builders do. It’s not a mortgage. You’re not supposed to live in your own house. It’s totally scamming the system. They had the house up for sale, but when they got cast on RHONJ, they pulled it so they would look like they were rich (they are not!) Next year, Joe & Missy will have a $2 million balloon payment due! They can’t pay it and are screwed!The proof is in the public records:(A link to the Morris County Real Estate records was included; however, the link did not work.  I did find the information from the link and can verify its accuracy.  Actually, the balloon payment of $2.25 million is due July, 2012  Update:  Missy and Joe Gorga modified their mortgage and a balloon payment is not due in July.  Their mortgage payment will be $15,000 a month.) liens on Melissa & Joe Gorga’s house:  (There are liens also from the fireplace installer and garage door installer totalling approximately $30,000.)

They tried to sell house, and it was removed:

This also shows that Melissa lies about how big her house it. She repeatedly says it’s a 15,000 square foot house on the show (even the previews) just so she can make it seem so much bigger than Teresa’s, but as you can see from public records, it’s only 13,000 square feet.

Melissa has been jealous of Teresa since the day they met. Melissa was a plain Jane. Teresa has been fabulous and over-the-top since high school. Look at how Melissa has transformed herself into Teresa (I attached a picture–you can find them all on the web). Melissa copies EVERYTHING Teresa does: where she get her hair done, which pediatrician she uses, she literally follows Teresa into stores. She wears the same shoes 2 weeks later… Here’s a classic example (so Leann Rimes/Brandi Glanville!): Teresa got a hot designer dress in Vegas with a feather skirt in Sept. She twittered it. The next month, Melissa showed up at Audriana’s birthday party in the same feathered dress.

Melissa copied the way Teresa set up her Twitter name: Teresa_Giudice and Melissa_Gorga. Who does that? Melissa’s new website is black with a diamond over the “i” just like Teresa’s Fabulicious logo on her site. And producers did know about Melissa for 3 years — they interviewed everyone of the Housewives friends and family every year for new blood, and they passed on Melissa every time. Then last year, Melissa and Joey got drunk and made a tape where they parodied The Godfather, sent it to Bravo, and promised they’d humiliate Teresa on TV. Bravo bit. Teresa didn’t know anything about it until they were signed! She was completely betrayed by Melissa, her brother, and Bravo. And unlike what was reported, Teresa was stuck in a 2-more-year contract, so she couldn’t get out of it and leave the show. She tried b/c she didn’t want to expose her parents or her kids to Melissa’s fame whore nonsense.

If Teresa always hated Melissa, why is Melissa Gabriella’s godmother? It’s Melissa who can’t stand that Teresa got famous, and now she wants what Teresa has. Missy is stalker scary.

PS– One of the reasons Teresa does hate Missy now is b/c Missy & Joe have an “open” marriage, and Teresa thinks it’s disgusting. Missy leaves her kids with her 2 nannies all the time to go clubbing and hook up (she’s usually with an exflame called “Butch,”) and Joe sleeps with everyone in a skirt. Joe actually had charges pressed against him for rape back in the day, but his family pressured the girl to drop the suit. Look up the court records in Patterson, NJ though… the charges were filed….

show details Nov 9
Stoopid Housewives:

I have detrimental information pertaining to BRAVO’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” franchise, specifically regarding Season 4 and Season 5 of the series. As you know, ever since Melissa Gorga came onto the scene, former friends Teresa, Jacqueline, and Caroline have been broken apart at the seams [for good this time].

As viewers and yourself will see next year, the 2011 POSCHE Fashion Show is the climax of all climaxes. I know this first-hand, as I was present and working at the show that very evening.

Had Melissa Gorga and her amateur pro-bono publicist not immediately went to the press and reality blogs, claiming Teresa Giudice and her friends tried to “set-up” Melissa – the cryptic housewife would have never ruffled the feathers of a woman who could very well be the biggest liability to Gorga’s simulated image.

The exclusive beauty director of the 2011 POSCHE Fashion Show was none other than Penny Karagiorgis, the owner of New Jersey’s full-service salon and euro spa, “La Chateau Allure.” Penny has a long history with Melissa, and knew Melissa long before her housewife days. In fact, when Melissa was casted for RHONJ, she actually called Penny [who she was not on good terms with her at the time] to boast. Penny, a well-educated former teacher turned businesswoman, was never a fan of Melissa ever since the self-proclaimed “Christian” worked as a stripper at her family-owned strip club [Looker’s Gentlemen’s Club in Elizabeth].

Melissa must have never took a moment to think about her own skeletons when she made it her mission to “…destroy Teresa Giudice…” As luck would have it, the minute filming began for Melissa she stopped speaking to anyone who knew her well, which included all of her best friends. The reason being? Melissa has much more to worry about than her stripper past. There is a reason Teresa never liked her, but refused to “go there” on the reunion [for her brother]. One of the [many] reasons being c*ckaine…

However, the major difference between Teresa and Penny, is a filter. Penny is not Joe Gorga’s brother, and therefore has no reason to bite her tongue while simultaneously crying herself to sleep at night.

This is evident in the recent Twitter war Penny and her husband [John] were in with Melissa and her unqualified publicist, who has since removed all of her tweets directed at the Bergen County family.

There is much more to Melissa than the Britney Spears character she tries to emulate. Joe did not meet Melissa in the romantic way of which they self-promote. Moreover, Joe Gorga was not even the man who Melissa was truly out for. In fact, the man [Mr. X] who Melissa obsessed over was a very good friend of Penny’s, who Melissa tried to strategically use to receive the approval of Mr. X and his family. That, and much more…

Any educated human being would think Melissa has some sort of psychological disorder for passive aggressively going after the one woman who knows more about her than she probably knows about herself. Maybe this is just the mentality of “Jersey rednecks.” After all, something many viewers, and especially none-New Jersey residents are not aware of, is that “Real Housewives of New Jersey” is not filmed in the area of the state where one would think the show would be filmed. Franklin Lakes, Montville, and Wayne – while all are safe, above-average communities to reside in – are certainly not [by any stretch of the imagination] the Manhattan (RHONY), Beverly Hills (RHOBH), Atlanta (RHOA), or even Orange County (RHOC) of New Jersey. In fact, Franklin Lakes is merely hanging on the border of Northern Bergen County [the wealthiest sector of the entire state].

The narcissistic Melissa and Joe Gorga may be coming after the Karagiorgis family in hopes that their bullying tactics will shut them up like it did Tre. However, this family is not stupid, nor desperate, and they know everything about Melissa from the manager who purchased her breast implants down to the hardcore dr*gs “Missy” and Joe Gorga used in the same party environment that their children were present in [multiple times].

The family’s twitter handles [where one can view the side of the tweet war which was not deleted] are as follow:

From SH November 11, 2011…

OK… here’s what’s goin’ on with the email received and posted regarding “detrimental” information about season four (and even five!) of the Real Housewives of New Jersey…

After reviewing the email many times and doing further research, there may be two reasons for the email.

  • One is stir the pot to keep the New Jersey franchise relevant…
  • The second is to put the spotlight on the person mentioned in the email as a candidate for a spot as a Housewife on the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

I sent an email yesterday to the person who was mentioned in the post inviting them to a Q & A session on this site.  If these people were interested in getting the word out about Melissa they would welcome the opportunity to answer questions directly from very intelligent SH readers!   However, I have yet to receive a reply…

If the person mentioned in the email is reading this, the offer still stands!  I would be happy to announce a time that you would be available to take questions from everyone very interested in all the information which you claim to have regarding Melissa and the next TWO seasons of RHONJ.

NOTE:  The Q&A obviously never happened!

Melissa book pg

NOTE:  Melissa’s ghostwriter is ValerieFrankel… as mentioned on SH December 20, 2012.  The Housewives are always trying to top one another; therefore, with Brandi Glanville’s revelation re her personal plastic surgery, can only imagine the detailed information which will be brought forth in MeGo’s book.  

RHONJ Melissa Cover SH

Of course, other Housewives must throw in their two cents… Ramoaner Singer was given the opportunity to comment about Brandi.  

ALSO… the sub-human NewJersey crew’s next season will be premiering in April.  Doubt very much if there will be any coverage re season five on SH.  

The RHONJ are simply the lowest of the low and are leading the pack as to WHY more and more viewers are switching channels; don’t schedule Housewives on their DVRs; and are not interested in the formulaic Bravo franchises.

  1. Hey, I’m a taker downer from way back. I just don’t waste my time on someone who needs to be built up first. The only reason I can see to attack Melissa is so Teresa can seem like a reasonable, better person. That’ll never happen in my opinion.

    So what if Melissa was a stripper, hooker or had unsavory boyfriends? Is/does she still?

    Teresa and Juicy have what they have because they stole services and goods and are slum lords without showing any remorse or propensity to change. It’s on tape! Juicy was admitting to driving with a suspended driver’s license when he told Teresa ‘Every time you drive, you drive like sh*t’ or ‘Every time I let you drive…’ So what’d Juicy do? With what I believe the full knowledge of Teresa. He blatantly commits another fraud. Juicy did not need that fraudulent license to drive. He needed it to conduct business.

    I’ll never be convinced Teresa did not know Juicy is a crook.

    Melissa making bad youthful choices in no way equals the considered and continued choices of Teresa. Having allies or not does not have anything to do with why I don’t like Teresa.


    • Well MeGo was a prostitute in the parking lot of the go go bar, basically. Then choosing to have sex with bulldog while she was married. That’s bad. Just to be clear I feel what Juicy did was terrible and I believe Teresa knew about it too. Sooo they are even stevens on my score card. Except Teresa isn’t a ho.


  2. It’s all Teresa’s fault! Wa-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-! She is a secret agent with super powers all seeing , all knowing…..wa-a-a-a-a-a!


  3. MeGo is nothing but a skanky cry baby. She thinks she is hot but she is a butter-face (at best), looks about 10+ years older than her biological age, and has very tacky super stripper fake tits and her new nose is way too thin with bulbous nostrils. Her indulgence in self pity and victim-hood makes her doubly grotesque. I can’t believe this talentless arse clown makes a paycheck for having cameras follow her around while she sings karaoke with a few backup dancers in a pleather leotard that induces a severe moose knuckle. It is absolutely absurd.


  4. I was wondering if part of the reason the Don was so pissed at Tre had to do with the fact that Dina went to Tre instead of the Don when she was having problems with her hubby. I would find it hard to discuss my marriage concerns with someone who is married to my husbands brother. That could be hard for both parties. I would not want to talk with big sister about the fact that her husband might be as much a scum bag as his brother. Marrying brothers can be good as well as bad. If breakups occur it can put sister or brother relationships at risk. I feel bad for anyone going through a breakup. I feel even worse knowing that in this case all involved are going to be horribly effected just because of the blood family factor.


    • After all these yrs. if Don can’t see what her husband is doing while not at home, I don’t think she’s the type that would learn anything from a talk. I think she started turning a blind eye years ago because she can’t eggmitt she’s not the perfect wife just like she can’t eggmitt she’s not the perfect mom. It’s everyone else’s kids that are messed up not hers. (mmmkay) & if the spouse makes up reason’s not to come home she’d agree that’s a really bad sign, unless it’s her spouse & then it just doesn’t count :P Funny how that works. But I’d totally forgotten Dina said she was aware Tommy cheated before the wedding. If that’s the case, she really shouldn’t have gone through with the wedding. But I guess money speaks loudly even to a very Zen girl.


    • Oh, good catch! I don’t watch Mobwives so I don’t know who that is, but I wish she would just drop her truth bomb already. Enough with the teasers!


      • I just got through reading a story about the newest Mob wife. Love is one scary bitch. If I was MeGo and her sisters I would watch my back and shut my trap! She is well known to not be adverse to use guns,knives make sure that people who piss her off learn a lesson. I think its funny as hell that those two have stepped into some serious shit when they opened their big mouths again. Love,Love that this time someone they have messed with wont take it lying down. I think Love should show up on the Jersey side and maybe befriend Tre. Wow! What a great story line.


  5. Bryan seems like a very decent fellow if you folllow his tweets. He is battling some health issues (a brain tumor, not cancer yet). I think he has gotten pushed out into the open because people kept badgering him and now the tweets from Melissa’s sister Lysa has gotten really out of control with him. They are nasty, nasty people. I hope Bryan does speak up. He obviously knows the real story and was taking the high road. But that may change with Melissa and her sister’s taunting him. One of their friends, Hunnie, was so incredibly psycho and vulger to him. I’ve never seen anything like it. It was so appalling.By the way, he is friends with Roger of TheJerseyShore and LoveMajewsky of Mobwives so a lot of people know the real Melissa.


    • lobstah: WHY even create a twitter account? We’ll have to see which of the many offers from the many mags which are knocking on his door he accepts. Just as “RoxyPoxy”… will believe it when I see it. Until then, it’s all BS from “Bulldog”… to create interest in the upcoming season of the RHONJ. I, for one, will NOT be watching. TFC!! SH


      • Thats where I stand Ms SH, until i see proof, Bulldog is full of Bulldooky. If he had anything he would have spilled by now.


          • Yea right, no one held a gun to his head and forced him on twitter, he is playing along like he is being paid to much liek roxypoxy did/


            • He has been on twitter a long, long time. Long before all this came out, so I respectfully disagree. But time will tell.


            • He hasnt been tweeting this nonesense a Long time
              His posting about Melissa is only a few months old I think MS SH said he sarting tweeting non stop In sep. So something happened in aug/sept that made him start. hmm maybe that when Bravo started paying him to tweet,


            • lobstah: His twitter started 11-11-11. He really started tweeting A LOT around September 2012. The guy practically lives on twitter these days. IMO, every one of those NJ people are shady. TFC!! SH


          • I agree it seems to me that Johnny the Greek is the one that relishes keeping it stirred up and THAT I dont understand. If Bravo gets their hands on Bryan then no need whatsoever for Johnny(I leave Prenny out of this since she stays in background) So maybe… just maybe Johnny is hoping to gain entry via the backdoor with his continued association with Bryan. And I could be wrong but I don’t see Bryan foolin with them too much longer. And that seems to be a pattern.


            • Johnny loves being in the mix & all the attention he’s getting bc he’s a friend of…or married to…or knows this…
              He’s annoying, Bulldog said he didn’t know Johnny b4 this all blew up but you wouldn’t know it from all the brothas! he gets from Johnny.
              He needs to settle down now and not try so hard. We get it, he’s on the edges of pseudo stardom and just staying relevant.
              I’m getting tired of waiting for all these secrets and truth bombs to come out. What is everyone waiting for? Spill it already.


      • I’m assuming he was already on twitter before as he has a lot of conversations with Roger of Jersey Shore and Love Majewski of Mobwives. I know you don’t agree, but I tend to believe him. Probably because I don’t see him acting like Roxy saying there was going to be magazines and they were threatening her. And Lysa’s emails to him are obvious in reaction to truth she knows that he knows.


  6. Bryan ‏@bulldog_nj

    I wonder why they don’t talk about crazy’s husband when he raped a girl in college & payed off the family. And how he had 2leave school hmm

    This tweet surely aint Bravo endorsed. Right? Or am I losing my mind?


    • Maybe because it didnt happen. There is no police report no evidence what so ever this “rape” happened. If the Gorgas paid a victim off what does THAT say about the Papa Gorga..not the saint people think he is.


        • Barb: Plenty of holes which would need to be plugged before that person would come forth. They would need some type of proof. If the offense took place 20 years ago, that proof would now be very difficult to find. There are people who come forth truthfully; pass lie detectors; and are shot down because of no backup “official” documentation. All the chicks that Clinton was having affairs with were still called liars and were not believed! TFC!! SH


            • And IF she was paid off back in the day… then her detractors would VICIOUSLY use that. What I figure is when MeGo was having her backseat get togethers with da Bulldog she spilled that lil nugget about JoGo. Trying to knock the stink off of what she was doing… as in he is not a person worthy of her fidelity?
              Now IF Tree and her parents think bulldog is gonna spill THAT one then I can see them trying to discredit him before it comes out. Kinda overplayed the hand.


        • If that happened to me as a young girl and I was now married with kids, there is no way I would let people know.


    • MP: Hopefully, “bulldog” will be real. However, there is a pattern of stirring up controversy and making chaos before one of the HWs franchises’ next season begins. HEY!! Am I answering myself?? LOL!!! TFC!!! SH


      • Thank you self for your reply to myself. Self, I get soo lonely sometimes. Nice to know that myself is still here for me. :)
