Before the influence of Jersey Shore and the Lights of Bravo, Joey Gorga was a family oriented, loving son and brother. He was devoted to his parents and adored his only sister.
Joey wasn’t stripping, he wasn’t ridiculing his sister or flat out lying about his parent’s financial condition, he wouldn’t have stood for anyone calling his father a coward or his mother a fucking liar, he wouldn’t have turned his back on Gia and he would have cut off his arm before hurting his family.
Joey was a loyal friend that would drop everything to lend a helping hand.
Joey was proud of working for what he acquired, he was proud of who he was and he always acknowledged the assistance he received from his parents, from his sister and from his brother in law. ALWAYS.
So what changed? Why did the down to earth Italian boy from Paterson become a money hungry self centered sell out who not only turned his back on his family, he assisted in the attempted carnage?
In his early years, Joey wasn’t afraid of hard work. In 2000, he incorporated Gorga Sanitation & Recycling Services, Inc. which as the name states was in the business of “trash removal.”
So while Melissa Marco was playing girls gone wild in Florida, getting arrested for shoplifting, living with various males and females, getting musty balls to pay for her new titties, Joey was picking up trash to make money and put food on the table.
Now, you may think that I’m going to say that’s why he was so experienced picking up trash, but that is just too easy, so I will refrain.
There is nothing wrong with hard honest work. However, in order to be approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency, a sanitation and recycling company must have a bona fide facility. Joey listed his parent’s one family residence as the sanitation facility:
So Joey worked in trash removal. After Teresa married Joe Giudice, Joey learned the construction business from his brother in law. Slowly Joey moved away from trash.
Who knew that Joey’s love for trash would pull him into the clutches of The House of Marco.
