NOTE: The relationship between Melissa Gorga, Penny Karagiorgis and her husband, Johnny “The Greek” Karagiorgis, and Posche Boutique owner KimD is further explained in these emails received two years ago.
The emails also are the source of numerous items on various Housewives sites…
While looking for something else, came upon THIS very interesting post.
Let’s take a look back to almost a year ago… before Melissa Gorga hit the big time… before her Housewife fame hit.
Melissa Gorga the newest Housewife on the Real Housewives of New Jersey has a lot to say about Tree, Caroline, Jackie and Kathy, but her real reason for signing on to RHONJ? It’s all about her singing career. (Interesting that the email sent to SH (below) that caused such a brouhaha said that Melissa’s whole intention for getting on RHONJ was to further her singing career.)
But, if Melissa is such a world-class singer, why would she go through the constant ‘heartbreak’… now there’s a drinking game… take a drink every time you see a video of the cast of RHONJ and they say ‘heartbreak’ or ‘heartbreaking’… you’ll be looking like this in a matter of minutes….of a reality TV show to get her singing showcased?
Are the rumors true that Melissa was pissed with Tree JOO-DICE for not acting like la famiglia and ‘sharing the wealth’ with Melissa and her husband, Joe during the first two seasons of RHONJ by way of introducing Melissa and Joe and allowing them some screen time?
During last season, Danielle states that it was Melissa who was feeding her information to use against Tree… not just to inflame Tree, but to also get Melissa noticed by the Bravo producers.
According to Danielle, it was Melissa who told Danielle to bring up Tree’s nephew at the reunion, as there were problems brewing between Tree and Melissa and Melissa knew that bringing up the subject of not recognizing her nephew would really steam Tree. Of course, there’s still that rumor out there that the nephew is not Melissa’s son, but a baby that Juicy’s ‘side’, Tara G or T, had. Who knows? It’s difficult to piece this relationship together.
Are both Tree and Melissa playing a huge game on RHONJ viewers? Tree is a pretty sneaky biatch and Melissa can’t be too far behind her in that department… Melissa has been in the family for almost 10 years.
Melissa is very serious about her music. You always stand by a piano if you want your audience to think you’re serious…
So, with that in mind, here’s a scenario: Melissa thinks she is a fantastic singer. Tree says to Melissa that RHONJ would be a great springboard for you, but no one will watch you if all you do is sing. There has to be a really good back story to the reason that you would participate in the show. Melissa and Tree confer and come up with the tried and true story of competing women. Yeah, let’s really hate each other on the show… since we know each other so well, we could really make it believable.
Melissa would only have to suffer through such ‘heartbreak’ for one season and Tree would come out of it a little bruised, but a lot of viewers would have such sympathy for her that they would want to see her back and would even buy cookbooks 3 and 4 “Sauce or Gravy” and “Cumin, Dinner’s Getting Cold: Fast Meals if You Don’t Make it to the DinnerTable.”
After Melissa has her singing career off the ground and she’s relocated to LA, there will be a spot left open for another RHONJ… this time it might be one or two of Caroline’s estranged sisters… now that would be a show!
Melissa has a chat with HubPages and explains how she got on RHONJ and her plans… here.
You can book Melissa here.
Melissa also had an interview with an Atlanta radio station… and chatted about how she overcame being the ‘new girl’ on RHONJ. Melissa says that she, Caroline, Jackie and Kathy get along well. Teresa just cannot stand any attention being taken away from her. AND… Melissa’s singing is just gonna blow everyone away!
THE FIRST “DAMN MELISSA EMAIL”…
May 11, 2011 9:54 pm
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.)

THE SECOND “DAMN MELISSA EMAIL”…
NOTE: The following email was sent to SH eight months ago… November 9, 2011. Knowing what SH readers and viewers of the Real Housewives of New Jersey now know about Melissa Gorga, this email may reveal further information regarding Melissa Gorga and her background…. if you choose to believe the author of the email! In attempting to get someone to own up to writing the email, a call to the person (Penny Drossos) named in the email on November 9, 2011 was placed. That person denies knowing anything about the email.
After reading, you may come to your own conclusions…
Le Chateau Allure Salon is now closed… the phone number is now “Columbos” ***The IP address is blocked… there is no name on the bottom of the email, only twitter addresses, and they deny authorship. SO… WHO sent the email??****

show details Nov 9
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 cocaine…
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 drugs “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:
