Real Housewives of New Jersey: KimG… How Teresa Giudice Gets Away With (Not) Buying Stuff

Real Housewives of New Jersey ex-cast member, Kim Granatell now writes a weekly tribble for celebritymagnet.com.  This week she’s writing a first-hand account about a scammer ‘acquaintance’ of hers… but it’s so obvious that she’s writing about Treetrunk Joo-dice.

So, here’s the question:  Why is she writing this now?  This is such old news… about two years old, at least.  Everyone knows this is how Tree rolls and we all know about how she and Juicy built their marble mausoleum.  So why now???  And why the secrecy?  Why not just come out and name names?  And, really Kim, is this all you got about Tree and Juicy???  How about answering the question about who TaraD is???  Now that would be some interesting stuff!!!  The best person to have any say whatsoever about the Joo-dice’s marble mansion would be Joe Mastropole, the guy they ripped off to build their place…

KEEPIN’ IT REAL WITH KIM G

I so often talk about this subject and wonder about two things:

1) How does one sleep at night and

2) How do they get away with it?

I took the title, “Catch Me If You Can,” from a real life story of a man who, before his 19th birthday, successfully conned millions of dollars from people by posing as a Pam American pilot, a doctor, and a lawyer. His primary crime was check fraud; he was so good at it that eventually the FBI turned to him for his help to catch other check forgers. The movie’s worth watching if you haven’t seen it!

I have, throughout my life, been surrounded by people who have committed fraud and scammed others. Not that these people were my friends, but people I have known and come across.   I actually was approached by a guy to invest in a business that I found out later never existed. He was just so convincing. I saw the lifestyle he had: several homes in all the right zip codes, a private jet, a fleet of luxury cars in a parking lot the size of a mini mall… (and all with other peoples hard earned money). But I was too smart and way ahead of his game, playing him like he was playing others.

These people want what other people have. They basically do not want to work for it or do not have a strong business sense to succeed on their own. Instead of being happy in their own skin, they desire to excel, but at the expense of others…and get away with it!!!

They are Pros. They have a lot of self confidence and feel they are above the law. In many recent conversations with my girlfriend, who is a high powered attorney, I have discussed this topic with her. Some people skirt the law with their actions… often worse than morally bankrupt. They are morally empty.

The example(s) I am about to cite are true and committed by basically one family or person. I have left out the names to protect the Not-So-Innocent individual’s family. The story may be familiar to you. So, here’s how it goes.

It starts with the little things. In one instance, this person went into a local boutique and took (I can’t say bought) hundreds of dollars of clothing for her children, and said “oh I will be back to pay you,” and never went back. She did this on several occasions throughout many boutiques in the area, not just for the children but for herself also.

                                                                                Pay ya later…

From there she graduated on to bigger and better things. She had “wild” spending on credit cards, racking up hundreds of thousands of dollars without a thought in mind to ever pay them. She built an add-on million dollar house (of course not in the right zip code) and bragged about how many more millions it was worth and that it was, indeed, brand new. So not true. It was built on swamp land with a major highway in the backyard.

Further information states that “privacy and tranquility reigns” at the Joo-dice digs but we have to wonder how much tranquility there really can be at a property that backs up to I-287, an extremely bizzy, 4-lane highway out in the middle of nowhere.  She gave minimal deposits to all the contractors on the job and when the time came to make the final payment after the jobs were completed, these guys were “you know what” out of luck.

 

Can you hear the echo???

Like herself and so many others, she felt a sense of entitlement with her brazen ways and personality, not ever thinking about the people she scammed and the consequences of her actions. In her eyes, she did no wrong and continued to shove it in people’s faces by driving around in brand new cars, designer clothes, etc. etc. without a conscience or any kind of remorse.

In the eyes of the victims and so many others, they look at her and some say “crime pays”. She got away with it and will continue to until the law finally catches up and does something.  And that may take years.  Or it may be sooner than she thinks.

In the meantime, she continues to cruise around like “I did nothing wrong”, continuing to be something that she never was. Something she will never be.

HONESTLY…”

NOTE:  Tree and Juicy’s bankruptcy case continues in July.  Judge Morris Stern has done a great job so far of seeing through these two scammers and, hopefully, will continue to do so…

Real Housewives of New Jersey: Kim Granatell and Tom Murro… Huh?! What!?

I got this email from Tom Murro, the Real Housewives of New Jersey Kim G’s boytoy, also known as the ‘celebrity magnet:’

Thanks for the posts. Thought you would put these to good use. I would be happy to continue sending pics and info providing you keep things positive.

Tom Murro

 

Well, first, I never requested that he send me anything and, second, I have no idea what he means by ‘keeping things positive.’   Maybe he’s referring to the posts about his relationship with Mrs. Granatell?    (see:  http://stoopidhousewives.com/2010/12/28/kim-g-and-the-celebrity-magnet/ and http://stoopidhousewives.com/2010/12/30/uh-ok-you-two/)

Tom and KimG have gotten extremely chummy over the past year and a half… more than rumor has it that she gifted him a red Mercedes, flown him to various locations via private aviation, and that he had visited Kim while she was at the Canyon Ranch Spa in Arizona.

KimG appeared on the ‘celebrity magnet’ site in August 2009 and there are numerous photos of just him and with KimG… photos of him driving her car, of them working in her front yard, of them in her house and photos of the two of them acting like ghetto santas at a Payless shoe store in Wayne NJ… but his wife is no where to be found… interesting that these photos not only include a photo of him and his wife, but one of KimG with his wife, too…

Here are photos that were attached to the email:

I have re-posted the photos several times and they keep disappearing… if there are no photos below, click this link:  http://plixi.com/p/73658219

Real Housewives of New Jersey: Kim G and Tom Murro… the ‘Celebrity Magnet’

There is something up with the relationship between Kim Granatell (Kim G), part-time housewife on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Tom Murro, the ‘Celebrity Magnet.’  I wrote about this previously on November 22 and I’m still intrigued…

Since my November post, Tom has written additonal items for his www.celebritymagnet.com site, including photos, re Kim G.

                                                Tom Murro, the ‘Celebrity Magnet’ and Kim Granatell… lookin’ pretty happy

Since meeting Kim on July 15, 2010, Tom has posted ten items on his site, the CelebrityMagnet.

So, in five months, Tom has written two articles a month which include mention and/or photos of Kim G…there may be others that I’ve overlooked, but that’s quite a bit for that length of time.

Interestingly, October 14 was the first time Tom’s wife, Kelly, was included in stories along with Kim.  I guess after three months of Kim G getting Tom’s attention, Kelly finally jumped in.

Tom Murro, the Celebrity Magnet, brought his lovely wife Kelly and the always interesting Kim G along to the event…” Well, we see Tom and Kim…

I am not the body language expert, Dr. Lillian Glass (http://drlillianglassbodylanguageblog.wordpress.com/), but I do recognize body language that blatantly shows romantic chemistry between two people. The top photo shows Tom and Kim clearly happy in each other’s company, arms wrapped around and holding each other at the waist. The middle photo is the same as the first, but Tom’s wife is included.  And the photo above shows Tom leaning into Kim, and she is comfortably relaxed with Tom…they are both happily smiling…again.

AND…Kim G’s tweets don’t lie.  Back in August, Kim was really looking for some luv from Tom and he doesn’t disappoint:

August 20:

John (Kim’s son) fabulous apartment at U Of Ariz with beautiful furniture we bought today. on my way to Canyon Ranch tomo. Tom Murro wish u were here.

Canyon Ranch bound in Tucson AZ. The fiinest spa in the U.S. So happy to splurge & pamper myself. Not using other’s money; it’s all mine!!!

Kim G let Tom drive her Ferrari F430.                                                                                              Tom Murro, the ‘celebrity magnet,’ crusin’ in KimGrannytell’s  Ferrari with KimGrannytell in passenger seat…

A comment on TMZ.com after a post re Kim G:

“Tom Murro has a website Celebrity Magnet. A 35 year old
Married, Father of girls under 10 years old who Kim Grannatell on her numerous tweets has indicated that she is presently in a torrid sexual relationship with this Lothario. She has tweeted that she has purchased as per his request a Rolex Watch and a Mercedes Benz SUV which she tweets are waiting for him with a red ribbon for his return from Martha’s Vinyard where he had a 4 second interaction with Barack Obama. There are people in our town starting a campaign to hold our noses when we see Mrs. Grannatell or Tom Murro”     Posted at 12:16 AM on Sep 9, 2010 by MaryAnne

Kim G and Tom Murro enjoy Why Men Love Bitches 1                                                     Tom, da magnet, and Kim in Kim’s house

I know this is ‘aging’ news, but I really want to know what’s been going on with these two. I wrote to Tom via his website, asking him some very pointed questions re his and Kim’s relationship. I have yet to hear from him. This leads me to believe that they are still going strong, otherwise Tom would have replied to my email with a simple “we’re done….or something to that effect.”

SOOOO…. how does his wife, Kelly, feel about all this? Is she in on it with Tom to get whatever they (or she) can from Kim G?

WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THESE TWO???!!!!
