Melissa Gorga Out Of Money - Cheated On Joe During Marriage

It has been a really bad week for Melissa Gorga and it is only Tuesday. Radar is reporting that in order to stay relevant and look as if they have money, Melissa and Joe Gorga of the Real Housewives - New Jersey are moving out of their current house which will probably be lost to foreclosure and into a much nicer house which is a rental. After buying their current house for $450K about 7 years ago they managed to take out over $2M in additional loans even though the house has not really gone up in value. They don't have the money to pay back those loans.

It was also revealed this week that Melissa cheated on Joe after she was married with the guy she was living with when she first started dating Joe. Not only did they hook up while Melissa was dating, but it also continued well after Joe & Melissa got married. Hmm, sounds like there might be a blind item reveal there.

None of this surprises me. Their house that was shown on RHONJ was so tacky. Didnt Joe Gorga work with Joe Giudice? I thought I heard that but I could be wrong.

Maybe there's some truth to strippergate as well.

JSierra said...

GreenMountain I'm sure she was just a cocktail waitress at the club, albeit a naked one and not as innocent as she described.

I don't understand why it is so hard for these housewives to live within their means and *gasp* god forbid be faithful. I still love 'em though

greenmountaingal said...

You're probably right. I know way too much about these people.

ITA with you re housewives living within their means. I don't get why they don't. Es stupido (my made up Espanol lol).

Laura said...

Theresa is laughing her ass off today! Which makes me not so happy as I think she is vile.

Fijigrrl said...

I just don't get the appeal of any of the RH shows. Enty -- I vote for a month without any reality show "celebrity" news.

So sick of it.

All those homes look like a Kirkland's sale on steroids. Great advertising!

Agent**It said...

Here's the story on the guy in question. http://fauxrealityentertainment.com/exclusive-bryan-bowen-courted-by-numerous-media-outlets/

VIPblonde said...

The first part, I totally believe. Housewives renting a huge house to appear richer than they are is nothing new.

The second part, I'm not sold on. After last night's RHOBH, Radar had lost all credibility for me. They seem like the go-to place if you want to plant a story about someone that no one else will print, and then all the other news outlets report that Radar has reported it without having to fact check the original story.

I love when these fake phonies get revealed, I hate fake people & people who brag about materialistic things (especially when they were purchased on a maxed out credit card that carries a high balance)

JSierra said...

VIP I am assuming you watched BH last night? Fay Resnick is Satan's Spawn, she needs to be banished to sand hill in the Atlantic Ocean with Danielle Staub and Alexis whatever from OC. GOD I have never wanted to punch the TV so bas as whenever they are on screen.

Susan said...

God I love this shit. I know this should be shameful of me. But, fuck it. We're allowed some guilty pleasures in life, right? Shoes, chocolate, Jersey Housewives. It ain't gonna kill me.

Do you how annoyed I am that I forgot to set my DVR last night for Bev Hill? I had to tape the 1 a.m. rebroadcast. Will catch up tonight.

It baffles my brain how these people live so far beyond their means. If I have a $100 Macys bill for which I haven't even received my monthly statement yet, I get stabby. There's been rumors since the Gorgas got on RH that their financial dealings with the monstrosity of the house they live in are shady. Of course, you would think Andy Cohan would address this shit on WWHL, but he's so far up the Gorgas' asses he can't see straight.

When is the next season starting for Jersey? On one of the Housewives blogs, I read that Danielle Staub is coming back. I hope Bravo reairs the seasons she was on, because I didn't watch then. I just would read about her crazy on Dlisted.

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

I'd so much rather have trash tv gossip and stories than kimmy k stories. That said I believe all of this. Can't stand her or Teresa but especially her tbh. Praise Jesus!

VIPblonde said...

@JSierra ITA with everything you said!!!! Count me as another one who can't stand the morally corrupt Faye Resnick

Diane said...

So Theresa wasn't blowing smoke out of her ass ... shame on you Melissa.

greenmountaingal said...

Faye Resnick is the worst! She also looks like a Muppet! I would honestly rather be stuck in an elevator with Danielle Staub than go to dinner with Faye.

Laura said...

I can't stand Fay! Why is she there, becauses she says everything for Kyle? Don't get me started on Kyle.

Susan said...

Don't get me wrong, I think all the girls on Jersey are quite vile in one way or another, but I firmly believe that Melissa worked at a strip club, and had a lot of boyfriends and was a gold-digger of sorts, and Teresa knew it, which is why she was so protective of her brother. Then when Teresa got on RH, the Gorgas got hella jealous. And, there you have it. Now, all of Melissa's secrets are going to come out. Maybe I'm naive, but I really don't think Teresa wants all this dirt to come out about Melissa, because it would probably devastate the old-timey Eye-talian parents.

car54 said...

Ah, so we should hear Theresa cackling with glee at this any minute now.

Karma is a bitch, and last season it was Melissa's turn to be portrayed as reasonable and a victim of how Theresa treated her--and now they're flipping it.

I know it's all for the cameras, but I never liked how Melissa came on the show and how she set herself up from the beginning.

I do feel sorry for her Joe if there is any truth to any of it--he is not the sharpest knife in the drawer about all this but I think he loves her and would be very hurt by it if it is true.

VIPblonde said...

@Laura Kyle has developed a mean case of Jillousy this season. She's always against Lisa!

Hollyweird said...

Also on the I hate Faye bandwagon. Also Adrienne maloof is such a big fat pathological liar.

Laura said...

She does have Jillousy this season! That is a perfect description VIP. Did anyone catch WWHL (Andy's show) last night? Taylor was on and she was bombed, I think she may really have a problem, every time they show her she is drunk.

noseygal48 said...

Yes Laura Taylor was so drunk. It was fun y at first then got really sad

Jolene Jolene said...

@Onyx--I am SO with you on that one. I only watch a couple of the housewives editions (Beverly Hills and Jersey), but at least they're entertaining and DO STUFF. They have personalities. There are so many things about the Kardashians that should bug the shit out of me--that they're money-grubbing whores, awful parents, etc. But you know what makes me extra stabby with Kim K? She is so fucking BORING! Has anyone even seen their show? She has ZERO personality, it's truly like watching paint dry. How can you be so rich and so watched AND SO BORING?!

katydid said...

I disliked Theresa the most last season. That sucks if Melissa cheated. The house thing they all do it and all become bankrupt because of it, good for Kathy from NJ for not sucumming but in return she lost her job.
RHWNJ is not my favorite, I prefer NY, BH and OC.
I didn't get to watch the whole episode last night will re watch again but I thought that was a real mean girl move for Kyle to show up with Adrienne AND Faye in tow. Faye's a real piece of work.
One more thing if they bring back Danielle Staub to NJ I will have to stop watching, she is not good for my mental health!!!

Jolene Jolene said...

Oh, and I FUCKING HATE FAYE too. She's all love and light yet comes off as the most condescending bitch. And yep, Adrienne is such a liar. Deny 'til you die I guess.

katydid said...

Also agree with @VIP regarding Kyle's Jillousy! Great description. Also Taylor was a mess on WWHL. Damn she needs help.

NapAssasin said...

Now i'm googling the WWHL from last night. I hate Faye, she's horrible but is clearly looking to make a name for herself so she can be on screen as much as possible. Ugh, vile. The Gorga things make me sad, but that's because I hate Theresa and her slimy husband so much. I hope the cheating isn't true, but I think all of them have huge money issues. Ridiculous. I could certainly live of a minimum 250K per year, but these idiots just burn it at both ends. Dumb.

katie said...

I'm still trying to figure out if Lisa invited Faye or Kyle decided to bring her. Probably the producers made it happen. She's vile.

PuggleWug said...

I loved drunk Taylor bringing shit up at the tea party last night! I can't stand Melissa Gorga. Teresa is an idiot, but I like her far more than the other harpies on RHoNJ. I don't like to watch a group of people piling on one person, and that was all it was last season. I've already decided not to watch the upcoming season. Andy Cohen clearly isn't fond of Teresa, and enjoys giving her the villain edit each time. I just can't with that show.

PuggleWug said...

Faye looks like an ape.

Susan said...

Regarding who has money and who doesn't, I always got the vibe that the broads on Bev Hills are fully loaded, with drunkass Taylor being the exception.

On Jersey, I do think Caroline Manzo lives within her means. I no doubt believe the Manzos have some shady business dealings - her husband got in big trouble for a state appointment he had - but the Brownstone is quite successful. Now the rest of the Jersey housewives are no doubt poseurs.

Count Jerkula said...

I love it when the mirrors shatter and all that is left is the smoke.

VIPblonde said...

@Katie Lisa said she did NOT invite Faye. From what I gather, Kyle asked Lisa if she could bring Faye. Lisa tried to discourage her from doing so, but didn't flat out say that Faye is not welcome in her home. So Kyle took that as a yes and brought her despite knowing that Lisa didn't want her there

Susan said...

Oh god. I find asking to bring someone to a party they weren't invited to as being SO tacky. So, I'm not surprised. God. I can't wait to watch this trash tonight. (I can only watch this shit when The Husband and the boy are sound asleep. I need to focus.)

ethorne said...

Sign me up, can't stand Faye. Adrienne is such a liar, I can't believe she could keep a straight (melted) face.

PuggleWug said...

Susan, my husband cannot stand these shows. I think I am liking Taylor a bit more this season. Probably because she is not on as much.

Anna Nonymous said...

yep, def a blind reveal there, but I don't care at all.

Agent**It said...

Joe Gorga has financially destroyed his parents. If Bravo renews them , they will make sure they have"housing".

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

@susan, Brandi is broke too but she's my fav!

And @jolene, after posting I thought abt it and I guess they're part of a trash reality world too I just freaking hate that show haha I don't even group with with the d- list reality shows. She is sooo boring, I don't know how people watch that honestly.

JSierra said...

Ethorne Adrienne reminded me of Jennifer Coolidge at the end of A Cinderella Story "I have never seen my husband's hidden will before"

"I have never sold a story to Radar before"

I couldn't stop laughing at not only the physical similarities, but also the shitty lying.

JSierra said...

Also the preview for ROBH next week when Taylor says to Kyle on the phone "Oh, Kennedy is with you?" she is trashed all the time and I love it!

Mango said...

@ greenmountaingal - I didn't think the Gorga's house was nearly as tacky as Teresa's which she she said was modeled after a "French chateau" - yeah, I know... WTF??

If Melissa used to dance/strip, it really and genuinely was while she was putting herself through college. She has posted photos of her degree. She has kids now. I say give her a break.


***** RHoBH SPOILERS AHEAD *****

Kyle dragged the morally corrupt Faye Resnick to the tea party, but what was sweet was that the camera did not show her once she got there! Sweet!

Taylor stirred up allllll kinds of shit, like last year's white party (??) and suddenly has decided that Brandi is her bestie, and right in the middle of the tea made a comment about people in the clique suing each other! *crickets* Yeah, the lunch went from fun to none just like THAT. Then she shit started going DOWN.

Adrienne actually LIED on camera about sending a cease and desist letter to Brandi.

And Kim -- who is still on the show why??? -- did not show because her dog hit her newly done nose. (I guess the dog eating her homework wouldn't work?) She sounded wasted on the phone. Same ol' Kim!

Mango said...

One more thing about the tea party: Lisa had this gorgeous garden tea party... and two bartenders in wife beaters??

I know it was to show off their bodies/muscles but that guy Jax totally puts me off. The one with the pony tail I find really cute, but Jax - UGH.

Unknown said...

Jax has huge fingers..he must have a giant wang. Rumor has it Joe Gorga is gay gay gay and melissa knows it. She gets the life he gets his men on the side.

VIPblonde said...

So, I just bought Brandi's book (it came out today).. This is officially the second book I've bought from any housewife, the first being Lisa Vanderpump's book on entertaining which is Vanderfabulous! Excited to read about all Falcor

Primadiva said...

@VIPBlonde, I bought it too! My favorite housewive shows are NJ & BH. NJ for the trashy drama, and BH for the beautiful homes and I love Lisa, Yolanda, and really like Brandi now. Looks like the Famewhorgasblog might have some truth to it now?

Mango said...

@ Primadiva - If that Famewhorgas blogs trashed all the Housewives, I'd be okay with it, but it's suspicious that it's so down Gorga/pro Teresa. I don't like the blogs that single out one housewife for a beating. Someone has a motive and the person behind that blog did a huge and I mean a HUGE amount of work to trash the Gorgas. I couldn't even read a fraction of it even if I wanted to. And I don't. Jeez, it's not like they shot JFK. *eyeroll*





PuggleWug said...

I find Yolanda to be wallpaper. She is so boring. She needs to change her makeup. It's all beige. Her lips have no color. Brandi is entertaining, but I think she is an asshole. She is currently Lisa's pet, and once she is bored with her, Brandi will be out for blood.

I like Lisa, but after watching her on Vanderpump Rules, I do not like her nearly as much. Keeping Stassi around to continue to create a hostile work environment, for ratings, is absolute bullshit. She is lucky she she hasn't been sued for knowingly allowing that shit to go down. I basically don't hate anyone on RHWoBH, and have no favorites. I think that is why it is my favorite out of the bunch. I can watch a good fight without being invested in a character. Pure entertainment!

Mango said...

@ VIPblonde & Primadiva - let me know how Brandi's book is. I might get it on Kindle if it's a giggle. Or if LeeAnn is gnashing her teeth over it.

katie said...

Thanks VIP. Did you notice Adrienne's necklace in the confessionals? Arby's logo. Such refinement and class. Not!

old ;ady said...

Wasn't Dear OLD Faye involved in the OJ trial? I can not remember how the story went if she was one of the ones dating OJ or one of the one's looking for their 15 mins. Did not like her then do not like her now and do not get me started on Kyle. It's like Junior High version of "Mean Girls".

ethorne said...

Yes @JSierra, I can't wait! "I'm in love, we're going on his plane, you have Kennedy? What's a Kennedy? Where am I? What's my name? I will go Oklahoma on you! More wine!"

ethorne said...

I always forget Yolanda's even on until the credits, but the shit that tumbles out of her mouth is so unconsciously ridiculous that I die.

"I wish I could afford 2 or 3 horses like everyone else, but my daughter only has 1. It's so expensive with the food, boarding, vet, chiropractor, massage therapist, aromatherapy..."

Lolololololol

Primadiva said...

@Mango, yea I agree, I think it's def "team theresa" maybe as a response to her getting the villain edit the past 2 season? They do trash the manzo, lauritas and wakiles too, I don't read all of it, because someone does have too much time on their hands...but some of the posts are interesting, especially with the producer getting fired. amazon emailed me yesterday to let me know the book was on its way, will let you know how it is!
@ethorne, I agree, the things that come out of her mouth are hilarious, but I do love how she calls out Kyle & Camille. Would LOVE to see her put Fake Resnick in her place. But that horse comment..hahaha I was dying. Oh Yola..."you only live affluent"

katie said...

She wrote a tell all about her BFF Nicole and posed for Playboy. Because that's the typical reaction to a dear friend dying. Her past is even more checkered than Taylor's.

VIPblonde said...

So, I just finished Brandi's book (I'm a very fast reader; a little under four hours). It was cute! It's called "drinking and tweeting" so it was peppered with random hash tags every so often, but I didn't mind them. I would rate it as a fun "beach read." If you like Brandi on the show, you'll enjoy her book. But if you hate her on the show, you'll hate her book too (obviously, because she is one of the few who doesn't really "front" for the cameras). It was fun learning the behind-the-scenes stuff that happened during the breakup. And who doesn't like people hating on Leann Rimes (she may have said something about Leann's "dentures" LMAO)? :)

katie said...

Thanks for the review! I have to get this if only to make LeAnn crazy. Did you see her new bangs?

VIPblonde said...

@katie No, I hadn't seen them! So I just googled "Falcor new bangs" and the article popped right up! Not kidding. Heehee. In case anyone else wants to see them: Falcor New Bangs
And I agree with Michael K's assessment. She'd look a million times hotter if her bangs were about 24 inches longer :)

Primadiva said...

@Vipblonde, thanks for the review! I can't wait to read i!! I was surprised there wasn't a thread for falcor's new bangs, then I remember it's Michael K who despises her haha. love dlisted.

Count Jerkula said...

If you wanna make LeAnne's head explode, drop comments praising Brandi and slamming LeAnne in the Amazon review section for that book. Then tweet her the links.

Count Jerkula said...

@ agent**It: In the comments of that article you linked to, it calls the Gorgas "Lookerz" and "Stumpy". Is Lookerz the club she is alleged to have worked in? I used to go there, back when you could smoke in NJ bars.

Primadiva said...

@count jerkula, I only recently started commenting on the blogs (have been following for about a year) you are hysterical. Did you happen to go to Lookerz in 2003? that's supposedly when she worked there..?

katie said...

I sense another trip to tweethab for poor little home wrecker LeAnn.

Count Jerkula said...

Maybe once. Most of the times I went there were between 1996 and 2001, but have stopped in since. It is very convenient to Rt 1&9 and maybe 4 minutes or less from Newark Airport.

I would not recognize her do to the booze and weed. I remember plenty of Soviet strips bussed outta Brooklyn doin a dollar train. Half the building was a diner, so you could get some good decent food before the drunken ride home.

Just remembered, I was there for the Mike Tyson/Lennox Lewis fight (June 2002). Rain. Direct TV kept cutting out and missed entire rounds, and then the KO. They didn't offer any type of refund on the $10 cover. That kept me outta the place for a while.

Primadiva said...

@Katie, LOL tweethab
@Count Jerkula, weed n booze will do that, sorry they stiffed you, I honestly could give 2 fake tits about mz gorga, but her holier than though attitude irked me, I only got into NJ housewives bc lots of my college friends are from jerz and got on me to watch. even if it's trashy, o well lolits funny seeing all this implode

Primadiva said...

sorry my typing is deplorable

Barton Fink said...

I'm starting to like Faye Resnick. I didn't want to, but whenever she shows up, she's the intelligent one! I know, I know.

Susan said...

OK. This is hands down my favorite thread of the week.

"And I agree with Michael K's assessment. She'd look a million times hotter if her bangs were about 24 inches longer :)"

^Dying. VIPblonde - I can't believe you read Brandi's epic novel in four hours. That is hysterical.

Onyx - Thank you for correcting me regarding Brandy's monetary situation. Of course, she may be raking in the big bucks now with her book deal and stripper classes.

There are elements of Brandy that I like, but overall she seems like a loose cannon. Perfect for trash TV, natch.

Yolanda always makes me chuckle.

Mango said...

I'm starting to like Faye Resnick....she's the intelligent one!

@ Barton Fink - Noooooo! She just speaks slowly, in well modulated tones. Don't mistake that for intelligence! She's a snake! She's poison! Run! RUUNN!!

jgirl828 said...

Joe Gorga flips old warehouses into luxury condos.

The problem with this (and probably why he is BROKE) is 1) The location of these warehouses/condos are in really shitty neighborhoods in New Jersey, aka Paterson NJ...who wants to live in a nice condo, but in a unsafe urban area?? 2) Many people are moving out of North/Central NJ because the property taxes are crazy high (you can do the research yourself...NJ has some of the highest property taxes in the country)

Jacq said...

Joe Gorga should open a School of Finance with Teresa. Melissa should teach marriage classes at a learning annex; down the hall from Juicy Joe's Driving Academy. Why can't they all just get along??

Jacq said...

I wonder if she's talking about her married lawyer boyfriend... I did like how Lisa told her to knock it off lat night & she fired it up anyway. Probably my favorite thing she's done. I didn't understand why she got so upset over forking over her wedding ring as part of the settlement when she'd left Russell already. She is definitely a drunken mess at each event this season.

Agent**It said...

count, yes

katie said...

According to Tamara Tattles, Lisa tweeted that Faye was not invited to the tea party. Kyle and Faye biggest mewlingest quims.

JSierra said...

Argle gargle Faye annoys the shit out of me, I especially dislike people who profit off the murder of family/"close" friends. I'm lookin at you too Kris Jenner.

Why is Kim still on the show? The only reason I can think is that Andy is hoping to get some good Lynne-esque quotes out of her, which are all the more hilarious now that she is "sober".

Barton you must resist! Google Faye and you will understand what a vile person she is. Dare I say, she is worse than Mamma KJ
