Twitter Obsessions

On June 9, 2014, I noticed that an account that followed me @PittsburghCOT  posted a private telephone number and threatened to take further action against @Trial7.  @PittsburghCott was being encouraged by Teresa Cramer known as @SheSharpShoots who had a history of failing false police reports.

I sent a private communication to @PittsburghCOT  as follows:

pitt 1

pitt 2

pitt 3

pitt 4

pitt 5

pitt 6

 

 

 

As soon as the private conversation ended, @PittsburghCott immediately tweeted the following:

pitt tweet starr

thus escalating the matter between Starr known on twitter as @Gator_Girl_2489  and the demons she imagines to be battling.

After wasting the last 2 solid days fighting imaginary, you would think Starr’s friends would intervene and tell her to take a few hours off for the benefit of her mental health and stability.

RHONJ Spoiler Alert Amber & Jim Marchese Full Throttle

amber and jim marchese old siteThe Real Housewives of New Jersey will premiere on July 13, 2014 with the most explosive Season ever.

New addition Amber Corbino Marchese was introduced as an old friend of Melissa Gorga.

Amber wastes no time throwing confronting her cast mates on their skeletons. As soon  Amber and her husband, Jim, confront cast members, Jim’s colorful past comes tumbling out. Jim is no stranger to the legal system: he is a law school graduate although he is not a practicing attorney.

Jim was a sales representative with Cell Therapeutics (CTI),  a biopharmaceutical company who specializes in oncology products.  In  2007, Jim became a whistle blower against his former employer when he accused CTI of fraudulently marketing a cancer drug to bilk Medicare out of millions. The Justice Department joined in Jim’s lawsuit against CTI. As a result, CTI was ordered to pay $10.5 million dollars in fines to the Government.

New Jersey law allows a successful whistle blower to an award of 15% to 25% of funds recovered from by the Government. But when Jim asked for his share of the $10.5 million dollars the  Justice Department charged Jim with orchestrating CTI’s fraud as the “planner and initiator.” The law recognizes that a “planner and initiator” of a fraud should not be awarded a whistle blower’s percentage because to do so would be to reward the ring leader of the wrongdoing.  The Justice Department produced evidence that Jim had allegedly used his participation in marketing the drug as a reason justifying a promotion/raise while employed at CTI.  A hearing was required to settle the issue of whether Jim should be denied recovery of the funds for his alleged participation in the scheme.

The Court ultimately sided with Jim awarding him the minimum 15% of the $10.5 million for a total recovery to Jim of  $1.6 million. The Court found that without Jim’s cooperation, the Department of Justice would not have discovered the fraudulent activity.  On the other hand, the Court also criticized Jim for not alerting federal authorities earlier since cancer patients were being harmed as a result of the fraud.

As if that wasn’t enough interaction with the legal system, in  December 2009, Jim’s ex wife and mother of 2 of his 4 children, was indicted by a Grand Jury. In a 7 count indictment, Rebecca Marchese DePeri Grande and her sister were charged with criminality arising out of their ownership in  Spectrum Title Agency.  Grande was charged with conspiracy, misapplication of entrusted property, theft by failure to make required disposition of property received and misconduct by a corporate official. Grande’s sister was charged with writing bad checks and theft by deception.  Jim’s ex wife took a plea. Thereafter, Jim sought custody of his 2 boys.

Clearly the Marchese Family are full throttle additions to the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Teachers Gone Wild: Defendant in Leann Rimes Case Targets Critic’s Kid

leann rimes photo

UPDATE May 22, 2014 in red

What happens when an unknown teacher improperly records a telephone conversation with an award winning recording artist and then releases it to the public?

Answer: The unknown teacher becomes a household name and social media celebrity. Kimberly Smiley became the modern day David to Leann Rimes’ Goliath.

No one will forget the media storm against Rimes for attempting to hold Smiley accountable for allegedly improperly recording a private conversation – a crime in California where recording a telephone conversation requires consent of both parties. [Rimes refused to press criminal charges but opted to sue civilly.]

The media portrayed Kimberly Smiley as a harmless out of work teacher and mother of four who relied on the charity of strangers to pay for her defense against the Rimes’ lawsuit.

The case was ultimately dismissed. Smiley became a social media sensation and relished in her new found fan base.

Under the bright lights of sensationalism, Smiley’s image began to crack.  Perhaps Smiley viewed her new found fame as an endorsement of her social media exchanges with Leann Rimes and Rimes’ fans as her targets. Smiley with the assistance of family members and a hard core fan base reveled in hate and engaged in ad hominem attacks and vitriol against Leann Rimes and Rimes fans.

On May 2, 2014, Kimberly Smiley jumped the shark.  As soon as one of her critics (known as Ginger on twitter) posted her daughter’s prom photograph, Smiley stole the photograph. Smiley then cropped off Ginger’s daughter’s head and posted Ginger’s daughter with a caption regarding the need to step away from food and enroll in weight watchers.

smiley on ginger blog

Smiley’s loyal followers chimed into the hate fest against Ginger’s daughter:

smiley on ginger obese

smiley on ginger names daughter

“Em” is Ginger’s daughter. The aforementioned accounts are dedicated to tormenting Ginger by discussing Ginger’s daughter. Both accounts are examples of accounts that have been embraced by Kimberly Smiley (an educator), her husband (a high school coach) and their family members and friends.

It is offensive and despicable that educators would engage in such conduct – The prom is a special day in every young girl’s life. To have your prom photo taken by someone who claims to be a teacher and told to “step away from the food” and “enroll in weight watchers” is vile, despicable and the worst sort of harassment.

What is equally offensive are the persons who have come to Kimberly Smiley’s defense by claiming Smiley was justified because of her conflict with the girl’s mother. If only the defenders were in a position where their twitter critics decided to post their children’s photos on social media with equally vile captions, would their reactions be “Well, I deserved it because of the things I said to their parents?” The answer is a resounding NO.

There is a distinction between adults trading insults, vile or otherwise, even when wishing Ginger’s family members dead:

smiley on ginger hope grandpa dies

smiley on ginger gpa dead yet

and resorting to posting Ginger’s kid with a caption regarding her weight.

Society holds educators and teachers to a higher standard because the educators are  entrusted with the care of OUR children – their academic, emotional and psychological development.

How exactly does Educator Kimberly Smiley justify turning a special day in a young girl’s life – her prom – into a social media nightmare?  There is no justification.

You are wrong Mrs Smiley, “EM” does not deserve the pain that you inflicted.

Update: Recently a woman close to Kim Smiley was asked to remove  the photograph of Ginger’s daughter. She promptly deleted the photograph. Kim Smiley tweeted the following to her:

smiley on removing ginger daughter page laney

Teacher Smiley shows no remorse or contrition for ridiculing the teenager. In fact, she continues to justify the indefensible.

As soon as Smiley communicated with another friend of hers,”Marla” changed her profile photograph to use Ginger’s daughter’s photograph as her twitter profile.

ginger kid as avi marla sissy

When pressured to remove the photograph, a troll twitter account known for it’s vile and nasty attacks on Leanne Rimes, Ginger, her daughter (see above) and anyone who tweets with Rimes or Ginger, tweeted that I am an idiot.

smiley troll you are an idiot

We suspected that the troll account was connected to the Smiley family. The troll account was asked the following:

horse asks smiley troll

Immediately, Sean Smiley, Kim Smiley’s husband responded as follows:

sean smiley responds to troll account horse

Sean Smiley outed his daughter’s nasty vile troll account!  Apparently, he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed.

When Sean was asked what he thought of a Teacher posting a Teenager’s prom photograph to ridicule her weight, he was unresponsive and evasive, making light of the situation at times:

sean asked by faux about tweet pic of teen unresponsive

Sean Smiley finally responded that the Teenager’s mother posted a photograph of his kids  (apparently that was supposed to justify a Teacher posting to ridicule a teenager’s weight, but let’s continue):

sean smiley says photo of his kids by ginger troll

 I asked to see the elusive photo since many have mentioned yet no one have produced same. Odd, since Ginger’s every tweet is extensively documented by “Smiley’s Army” as they are commonly known on twitter.  Sean resisted attempts to produce, indicating that “he was over it.” Over it? The only reason given to justify the post and he was “over it” when asked to prove it?

sean identies photo but refuses to produce

When he realized how absurd he  sounded, he reluctantly agreed to have his wife DM me the elusive photograph and in return I agreed not to release or post the photo without their consent:

faux reply not to post

 Contrary to Smiley’s representation, no photograph was produced. In fact on May 22, 2014, Sean Smiley claimed  there is no photograph while cracking jokes and making light of what his Teacher wife did to a Teenager.

smiley admits there is no photo

Then Sean Smiley proceeded to laugh, joke, accuse and flood my twitter time line with explicit and violent rap lyrics.

What does Sean Smiley do for a living you may ask? He claims to be a teacher. But that’s debatable.

sean smiley genius spelling

RHOBH: Brandi & Yolo Play Assault Card Against Ken

ken and lisaOn March 10, 2014, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills aired the Finale. It was the cookie cutter Housewives’ finale where the fan favorite is attacked by the others. In this train wreck, Lisa Vanderpump was forced to endure a night of constant battles as she was confronted by Kyle, Brandi, Yolanda and even Kim – often two and three at a time.

When Lisa’s husband, Ken, attempted to extricate Lisa from a particularly brutal attack by Brandi and Yolanda, he was accused of assaulting Yolanda. Nothing is further from the truth. It was Brandi’s careless actions, Yolanda’s over the top dramatics sprinkled with manipulative editing that gave the false impression that Ken assaulted Yolanda.

The following is a detailed transcript of the exchange among Yolanda, Brandi and Ken. The shoddy editing fails to show a critical component of the exchange in order to make Yolanda appear the victim and Ken the villain.

Yolanda (hereinafter “Y”), Brandi (hereinafter “B”) and Ken (hereinafter “K”) Ken had not even reached the ladies’ table when Yolanda began her verbal assault. . . 

Y: Ken, can you stay out of this, we’re having a girls’ talk and again you’re walking into it. I don’t appreciate it.

K: If your husband was here . . .

Y: He would not get involved.

B: You wouldn’t be talking to her like this.

K: What do you mean I wouldn’t be talking to him?

Y: My husband would not get involved, Ken.

K: One day your husband might come and we can have a chat.

Y: My husband. Do you think my husband wants to hang with somebody like you?

hang with somebody like you

B: Her husband actually works.

Y: . . . who attacks somebody’s woman in public. I mean , do you kidding me [sic]?

K: Your husband . . .

Y: You’re kidding me.

K: Let your husband tell me that.

Now look closely, Brandi grabs Yolanda’s face and turns her face away from Ken in the midst of the exchange.

brandi grabs yolandas face and mouth 1

brandi grabs yolandas face and mouth 2

Ken touches Yolanda’s arm to get her attention.

brandi grabs yolandas face and mouth 3

Yolanda slaps Ken’s arm away violently while screaming:

Y: Don’t touch me!

brandi grabs yolandas face and mouth 4

brandi grabs yolandas face and mouth 5

 Yolanda leans over Ken and screams again.

Y: Don’t touch me!

yolanda screams last

Ken was stunned. In fact, everyone was stunned except for Yolanda who continued her dramatic performance as Lisa Vanderpump pulled her husband to safety.

Due to Brandi Glanville’s repeated desire to take a lie detector test, Faux has arranged for an expert Polygraph operator to administer the test.  We want to make sure Brandi’s wish comes true. We await Brandi’s response to the offer.

RHONJ: “Successful Developer” Gorga Downgrades

melissa-and-joe-gorga-arrive-at-fort-lauderdale-airport cropMelissa Gorga once described her husband as a “successful developer” but it appears that she has taken her Louis Vuitton bags and moved back to Green Acres.

Melissa has given numerous inconsistent reasons for moving from her “dream” love shack: She initially declared to the world that she needed to get her kids away from the Giudice girls. This year, however, Melissa reluctantly admitted that her nieces weren’t “the only reason” she wanted to move; She wanted to move back to Franklin Lakes, where she initially met her husband. Oddly enough, instead of waiting for her “successful developer” husband to build another dream shack, Melissa packed up their love shack:

montville house

and moved to a rental. Speculation and bank records seem to indicate that the Gorgas overextended themselves and had to cut back their extravagant lifestyle.

The following are exclusive photos of the house that Melissa Gorga and family currently occupies:

Rental home Gorga 4By Franklin Lakes standards, this rental is on the low end of the market. Since filming for Season 6 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey begins on November 11, 2013, it will be interesting to see if Melissa Gorga films at her current residence.

RHONJ: Jacqueline Laurita Sees Tweets That Don’t Exist

Jacqueline accusing Dina of lying on S 1 Finale

Jacqueline accusing Dina of lying on S 1 Finale

Jacqueline Laurita made headlines when she claimed that John Karagiorgis harassed her on twitter by tweeting negative comments about her autistic son. Her accusations were reported in numerous media outlets. Notwithstanding the allegations, the alleged tweets were never produced.

Faux Reality undertook an investigation to see if Jacqueline ever responded “in real time” to the alleged tweets.  After all, anyone who is familiar with Jacqueline on twitter has seen her unprecedented melt downs when she perceives she has been slighted or attacked.

Is it possible Jacqueline didn’t respond to such heinous tweets? Or is it probably that the tweets never existed? In this instance, there are no exchanges regarding her son on or before March 30, 2013 (night of Brawl). It is clear that Jacqueline has falsely accused yet another individual (as she did Teresa, Juicy, Dina, Danielle, RealityJulie, etc.)

An observant investigator uncovered something far more interesting; Jacqueline repeatedly retweets and responds to people who praise her for her strength, her “work” as an autism advocate, etc. Here’s the problem:

  • The people she’s tweeting don’t exist; and/or
  • The original tweets were never sent.

Jacqueline seems to be responding to imaginary people and/or imaginary tweets. The following are some, but not all examples of Jacqueline’s bizarre imaginary praise and retweets:

On October 2, 2013, Jacqueline retweeted a tweet from @BradClifton that she is “important, valuable and unique.”

brad clifton laurita fake tweets crop

But @BradClifton hasn’t tweeted since 2009, when he tweeted a total of 4 tweets and he never tweeted anything about Jacqueline Laurita.

brad clifton crop

On September 25, 2013, Jacqueline retweeted a tweet from @Michele:

michele no english clip

Why would a male chef from Italy who tweets mostly in his native tongue of Italian care about Jacqueline’s blog? A review of his time line proves that @Michele never tweeted Jacqueline, he didn’t love her blog, he didn’t say she was awesome and he didn’t tell her to keep moving toward the light.

On September 24, 2013, Jacqueline retweeted a tweet from @Roxygirl calling her “an amazing inspiration2parents”:

roxy girl crop

A review of @Roxygirl’s account shows that it is an egg that has never tweeted anyone.

roxy girl never tweeted

The aforementioned are limited examples of a much more disturbing picture. There are dozens of examples of alleged retweets where the account doesn’t exist.

It appears that Jacqueline Laurita not only sees tweets about her son that don’t exist, but also retweets fabricated tweets praising her and retweets them in her world of illusion.

RHONJ: Caro Caught Between Dina & Protecting Chris

DinaCarolineMergecropFor years, loyal viewers of RHONJ wondered about the Manzo/Laurita mystery: What happened to cause the rift between Caroline and her young sister, Dina? Why would two sisters suddenly stop speaking to each other?

In essence, Dina left the RHONJ franchise after Season One.  At the time, Dina stated that she “wouldn’t recommend that other families get involved in reality shows.” New York Post, June 11, 2010.  At the Season One Reunion, Caroline ranted that Danielle Staub “did something to Dina that was unforgivable” but refused to identify what Danielle had done.  Viewers assumed that “the unforgivable act by Danielle” was the reason Dina left.

Shortly thereafter, Caroline suddenly declared that Teresa Giudice was “the cause” of the rift between her and Dina. Chris Laurita also implied that Teresa was involved in Dina distancing herself from their family.  But the facts didn’t support the statement or the implications.

The true cause of the rift between Caroline and Dina was the unfettered support that Caroline showed  Jacqueline.  Jacqueline repeatedly attacked and undermined Dina. But Caroline has not and will not turn her back on Jacqueline. Why you ask? Caroline views her support of Jacqueline as her attempt to protect her brother Chris from an unstable wife.  Caroline will not leave Chris to deal with Jacqueline on his own and if Caroline turns her back on Jacqueline, she will be doing just that! Follow the bouncing ball: Season One Finale, Jacqueline exploded on Dina calling her a liar and stating that she would no longer be silenced regarding Dina’s deceptions towards Danielle.  The following photo clearly shows Jacqueline ranting (and swearing) at  Dina:

Jac Screaming at Dina

Photo via bravotv.com

Dina was visibly mortified and shaken by Jacqueline’s accusations. Caroline attempted to stop Jacqueline by reminding Jacqueline that she was breaking their parents’ hearts. Jacqueline climbed into Chris’ lap who then stepped up to defend Jacqueline. So Dina left RHONJ but Caroline and Jacqueline remained. The family refused to discuss the reason that Dina won’t speak to Caroline or Chris and Jacqueline. True to form, Caroline blamed Teresa in order to deflect blame from the true problem: Jacqueline. But Jacqueline couldn’t keep quiet due to her twitter tourettes.

One evening, Jacqueline went too far with Dina as her target and tweeted that Dina would be “taken down.” On October 21, 2012 at midnight, Dina finally responded (but never mentioned Jacqueline). As soon as Dina responded, Ashlee (Jacqueline’s daughter) immediately asked that Dina delete her tweet. The following is the exchange:

ashley and dina on their mother more complete blog Dina Manzo stated that Jacqueline should keep as quiet as Dina does because things will never work themselves out “if the behind the scenes stuff doesn’t stop.”

Interesting to note that during Season One, Dina and Caroline incorrectly suspected that Danielle Staub was releasing negative stories about Dina’s personal life and charity. But it wasn’t Danielle, it was Jacqueline; Jacqueline who released negative stories about Teresa; Jacqueline who has lied about autism advocates and other twitter users to satisfy her self serving ego.

After witnessing the Season One Finale meltdown, Caroline stayed glued to Jacqueline, not because she loves her more than Dina, but in order to keep Jacqueline contained for the benefit of Chris and their children. So the reason that Caroline, Chris and Dina don’t talk is Jacqueline Laurita who hides behind the love Caroline and Dina have for their brother. Does Jacqueline sound like another RHONJ cast mate?

RHONJ: Criminal Court Dismissal Means More Litigation

Original Photograph by Don Smith Staff Photographer for NorthJersey.Com and Altered by @AWenchLikeMe

Original Photograph by Don Smith Staff Photographer for NorthJersey.Com and Altered by @AWenchLikeMe

Earlier today Joe Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, Chris Laurita and John Karagiorgis appeared in Ridgewood Municipal Court to answer the charges of assault, harassment and / or terroristic threats.

Pursuant to the private attorneys’ agreements, the prosecutor made a Motion to Dismiss the charges against all parties. Normally this would end the legal maneuvering . . .  but this is Real Housewives of New Jersey. . .  when is anything “normal” when RHONJ is involved?

JohnnyTheGreekStilettoInjury copyThe disposition of the criminal charges has now cleared the path for the civil case. An inside source confirmed that in exchange for dismissal of the criminal case, the “appearance waiver” in the agreement executed by Johnny will not prevent him from pursuing claims against not only Joe, Jacqueline and Chris, but also Siren (Production Company), Bravo, the Security Company, Owners of the Salon and any other parties responsible. The list of potential Defendants may also include Melissa Gorga, the Wakiles and other cast members since the confrontation was allegedly premeditated. In addition, Joe Gorga’s propensity for violence was well known by Defendants and documented by Production.

The within civil suit will be the second strike for Siren and Bravo. They were sued in 2011 for a fight in Punta Cana caused during filming of RHONJ. The Punta Cana Complaint alleged that Bravo & Sirens Media:

encourage, promote and demand that the cast of RHONJ engage in verbal and physical conflict with one another and members of the public, creating a culture, climate and/or atmosphere of confrontation, hostility and violence in order to attract viewers

Paragraph 26 of the Punta Cana Complaint. Full Story on Punta Cana. The Punta Cana Lawsuit was settled for an undisclosed confidential amount.

From the looks of things, the within lawsuit is destined to be a financial and emotional headache for Bravo for the following reasons:

  • Jacqueline Laurita is a “loose canon” who cannot control her impulse behavior;
  • Siren and Bravo already televised Joe Gorga’s propensity for violence, including his wife’s admissions that he has violent outbursts;
  • Johnny was allegedly enticed and misled to attend the function by cast and crew; and
  • The Punta Cana lawsuit put the parties on notice of such dangers.

It will be interesting to see what part the civil suit will be in Season 6 of Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Exclusive: RHONJ: Season 6 Returns to Family Values

The internet is replete with rumors and speculation about the cast shake up for Season 6 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.  Several media outlets have reported that Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are returning; Kathy Wakile will be down graded; Jacqueline Laurita is out; and Caroline Manzo will leave to star in her own spin off.

The million dollar question is who will join a show plagued with scandals of fabricated footage and manipulated scenes. Faux Reality Entertainment has learned by an inside source that two sisters from Colts Neck are being vetted for the slots.

Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Napolitano Aprea have been interviewed and have made the short list.  They have been offered the slots and are currently in contract negotiations – refusing to sign the contracts as presented to them by Production. Both are affluent, beautiful and intelligent women with strong family values.

teresa and nicole napolitano crop

Teresa Napolitano Aprea and her husband are well known in philanthropic circles in New Jersey.  Nicole owns a Diary Queen and is extremely successful.  Teresa and Nicole are “40ish” and twins.  Family is everything to these two and you won’t see the backstabbing that has become common place with Joe and Melissa Gorga.

It looks like Mama Santa Napolitano is going to give Mama Antonia Gorga a run for her money on the fabulous Italian Nonna award.

Stay tuned because Real Housewives of New Jersey has just told Melissa Gorga to sit at the back of the bus or get off.

RHONJ: Analysis of Bad Editing in Gorga/Drossos Exchange

On February 28, 2013, Penny Drossos met Melissa and Joe Gorga at Chakra in Paramus. At the time, the filming was reported in blogs and newspaper outlets including the Bergen Dot Com.  Anyone present at Chakra that evening witnessed the film crew and the participants – filming lasted over 3 hours.

chakra penny drossos 2

On September 15, 2013, the Chakra meeting was aired. The footage lasted less than 2 minutes. Despite the presence of numerous cameras, the critical components of the exchange fail to capture the person while he/she is talking – the reason is that the conversation was pieced together to fabricate as story that the Producers want. Why else would Melissa Gorga tell her husband they have no proof of Teresa’s involvement on the Arizona trip that was 2 weeks after the Chakra meeting! This exchange is disjointed with questions and answers not matching up. In short, the scene is a mess.

The following is a detailed transcript of the exchange. Brackets [ ] have been placed around words that were said without the benefit of seeing the person who allegedly spoke them. The shoddy editing proves that the conversation does not flow, words are clearly dubbed, sound volume does not match – all indicators that words were strung together to form fabricated answers to create the illusion of blame on the part of Teresa:

Melissa (hereinafter “M”) walks over to Penny (hereinafter “P”) 

M: We were over there. It’s date night . . . (points to Joe Gorga at the table)

talking head after Arizona

Melissa Gorga’s Talking Head Interview (taped after the March 16, 2013 trip to Arizona): Teresa and I made a pact that we were going to approach these people together, but the last time I saw Penny it seemed like she had more to say and wasn’t saying it. So if I’m going to see this woman alone, of course I am going to get to the bottom of this. So why did Melissa say there was “no proof yet” when they were in Arizona?

P: So Milania Hair Care, it was great seeing you there.

M: I just feel there was something more you wanted to say.

M: If I’m wrong, I’m wrong. said in response to being told it was not Teresa

P: [You’re right] said several times throughout the conversation but never in response to needing to say more.

Joe Gorga walks over.

M: Joe, you remember Penny.

J: How are you.

P: Good

J: [Can I join you?]

P: As long as you don’t get crazy on me. said in response to whether J can ask about Angelo

J: [Who’s behind] this cheating thing?

P: [I was asked] to attend Milania Hair Care was the actual question.

M: [By who]

P: [It wasn’t Jan, it’s not Kim] words pieced together

M: Where are you pointing?

P: It was your sister who invited Penny to Milania Hair Care.

P: She asked me if I knew who BLEEP [was and she asked me to confront my brother about it] was asked to confront brother to confirm who brought up lover

M: She asked you to confront [him about my ex]

P: Yeah 

J: [Why]

P: [I don’t know]

M: [Wait, hold on. At that Milania Party] she said to you we’re not friends [right you don’t know me right]

P: [Right] That’s a lie when asked about raising money for the Celebrity Apprentice

J: [Then why did you lie that night?] For her?

P: Yes was said numerous times, never admitting to having lied about or for Teresa

M: She doesn’t like you at all

P: As far as her not liking me, there are a lot of things I can say.  . .

P: I can show you on my phone right now, I have her house number and her home number, want me to show you?

J: Yes

M: It doesn’t matter in response to Joe’s question on how Penny knows Melissa

P: [Am I lying]

J: [No]

P: I’m not going to take the bullet for everything regarding the rumors about Manzo cheating scandal.

P: [John has text messages]

M: Who?

J: Who?

J: [You mean . . . Is your husband the one behind the computer doing all those tweets?]

P: Yeah 

J: [Johnny the Greek?]

P: Yeah

melissa talking head johnny abusing herMelissa Gorga’s Talking Head Interview: This guy Johnny has really been abusing me hard on twitter social media. I could see his wife doing this, but now the tie in between Penny and Teresa. It is starting to make sense in my head there is a connection between the three of them.

 

 

Two tweets are shown – – allegedly from Penny’s husband Johnny the Greek. Interesting to note that the photo next to the tweets was never posted on twitter.  RHONJ Production/Bravo used a photo of Johnny the Greek taken at the Moxie Posche II Grand Opening held on March 30, 2013 where all attendees executed written permission to use their likeness on the show:

M: She says you just show up

P:. . .  I have better things to do.

P: She asks Johnny if he could get appearances [That Neo Cafe that she did last year ] That’s John’s family. John got her that gig. In response to questions about Teresa’s appearances

talking head joe train wreakJoe Gorga’s Talking Head Interview (taped after the March 16, 2013 trip to Arizona – no more spray on hair): You’re looking at a woman like Penny and she looks like a train wreak. Could she be reliable? Normally you would not take her seriously, but in these case, she knows too much and that’s the type of person that will go and do someone’s dirty work. A woman who looks like that. Says the angry little man with spray on hair.

M: [Teresa is wrong for whatever she’s done] But you are also wrong for getting involved in the family circle.

J: Honestly, what I would do, as a human being and a normal person . . .

P: So did you approach John? In response to question about how Johnny knew Melissa didn’t go see Papa Gorga in hospital

J: Oh, I, I will.

J: I don’t even know the guy.

P: It’s time the two of you come together.

J It’s terrible what he’s done. 

P: I’m done. Your sister in law told me to squash it.

M: Maybe she’s done now.

J: [Listen, I’ve heard enough. I can’t take anymore. Let’s go]

RHONJ: Gorga Admission Proves Teresa is Target

Tabloids and Social Media is abuzz about Real Housewives of New Jersey. Bravo has once again shifted the focus of whether Melissa Gorga cheated (thus making her Marriage Advice Book a farce) to whether Teresa Giudice was involved in the cheating rumor.

Bravo commenced a media blitz, complete with select previews and E OnLine stories (E-OnLine is owned by NBC) while Siren Media attempts to shut down the target of the blitz from defending herself.

The previews of Episode 16 allegedly show Penny telling Joe and Melissa Gorga that Teresa is behind the cheating rumor. But nothing is what it seems when it comes to RHONJ.

As previously reported herein and on numerous sites,

  • On February 28, 2013, Joe and Melissa Gorga met with Penny Drossos at Chakra;
  • On March 16, 2013, the Gorgas went to Arizona with the rest of the RHONJ cast.

While in Arizona, Melissa Gorga states that there is no proof that Teresa was involved in spreading the cheating rumor. The following is the clip from Bravo TV evidencing Melissa stating “there is no proof”:

Clip from RHONJ BravoTV.com

So as of March 16, 2013, Melissa Gorga acknowledges that there is no proof that Teresa was involved!

The preview that Bravo has released is a “spliced and diced” meeting that the Gorgas had with Penny Drossos on February 28, 2013!

Why would Melissa Gorga say there was no proof if Penny Drossos had outed Teresa 2 weeks earlier? It’s simple.

Penny never outed Teresa at Chakra. Melissa and Joe didn’t have proof in Arizona (2 weeks later). Somewhere along the line, the Chakra footage was edited to give the illusion that Teresa was to blame. But Chakra could not be shown in sequential order because the Gorgas couldn’t confront Teresa with “proof” that didn’t exist. No problem for Bravo. They simply switched the order in which they aired the Arizona trip and Chakra.

Abracadabra!

With some crafty editing and attempts to shut down the parties who know the truth, Teresa comes out looking like she was responsible, Melissa once again plays victim and Penny looks like she turned.

After 5 Seasons of being force fed bad editing, we’re not buying it! Can we have another?

For those still in doubt, perhaps this will help, Production orders Pump Rules star Kristen to leave the location or be arrested then Bravo blames her for leaving:

Bravo plays games Pump Rules

Another glaring example or the “Blame Teresa Game” is Teresa’s conversation with her mother in law, Filomena Giudice, when the dialogue was edited to make it appear as if Mama Giudice was talking about Melissa when she was not:

Mother in law Melissa Filomena

Even though Melissa knew the truth, she played Victim once again, thanks to Bravo.

RHONJ: The Carnage Continues – Blame Teresa

tied_to_the_stakeIn lieu of Bravo’s version of water boarding, commonly known as Season 5 of RHONJ, Bravo should have aired a one hour special where Teresa Giudice is tied to a stake in the middle of the Roman Colosseum; Melissa, Kathy, Caroline & Jacqueline can throw stones, boulders, arrows, xanax bottles or whatever they choose to the cheers of their husbands.

Such a special would have been more humane to Teresa and her supporters rather than the carnage that is presented each week on Bravo as edited and fabricated by Siren Media.

The show is not entertaining. It’s torture – slow, progressive, systematic inhuman torture. Furthermore, it is infuriating to know that viewers are manipulated by shoddy editing, with no regard for the real life chronological sequence of events. Truth means nothing. Time means nothing.  At the end of the day, all that matters is that Teresa must be blamed for “victimizing” Melissa. Has anyone seen Groundhog Day?

The September 8th episode ended with the cast having an after dinner drink at the Miraval lounge on their last night in Arizona.  Everyone was enjoying their final hours at Miraval when Caroline interrupted the joking to proclaim that it was imperative that they reveal any additional issues that remained unsettled.  Why would Caroline feel the need to open old wounds after days of endless therapy sessions with paid unbiased professionals?

Let’s put a few things in prospective in order to understand Caroline’s self serving motives in cranking up Joe Gorga and shifting the focus back to Teresa.

The following is a time line of relevant events in Season 5:

  • December 3, 2013 – Posche Holiday Party
  • January 18, 2013- Kim D Jewelry Launch
  • January 31, 2013- Drinks at Bellisimo
  • February 18, 2013- Milania Launch 
  • February 28, 2013 – Gorgas & Penny Drossos dinner at Chakra
  • March 2013- J Gorga & R Wakile go to Penny’s husband’s business “off the record”
  • March 16, 2013- Miraval in Arizona for entire cast
  • March 29, 2013- Wakiles telephone Karagiorgis “off the record”
  • March 3o, 2013- Posche II Grand Opening at Moxie Salon in Ridgewood

Shortly after the Milania Launch, the Gorgas and Wakiles made several overtures to Penny Drossos’ husband Johnny Karagiorgis (@JohnnyTheGrk), to implicate Teresa for the cheating rumors.  The Gorgas and Wakiles attempted to poison Penny against Teresa while promising Penny future filming endeavors with Melissa and Kathy.  The Wakiles were on the phone with Karagiorgis for over an hour the night before Posche II Grand Opening despite Kathy Wakile’s proclamation that “family must stick together against outsiders.”

On March 14, 2013, a little bird told Caroline that one of the producers sought to reveal a rumor regarding Albert Sr. Caroline sought the identity of the producer. When no one would reveal who it was, Caroline pointed her finger at Penny.  So the anger and hostility that Caroline & Albert displayed at Miraval in stirring the others was not to “help heal the Gorgas/Giudices” but rather to vilify Penny (as she did Danielle in Seasons 1 and 2).

Caroline Manzo tells Joe Gorga ” Joe, hug your sister because she is standing up for you. You go deal with that bitch.”

Albert Manzo chimes in “You’re not wrong. If the two of you confront those pieces of garbage, when it’s over, you will be united.”

Not once does Caroline mention her true motivation. She simply cranks up Joe Gorga, the man she knows to be violent and easily provoked to do her dirty work against her perceived threat.

In order to further the recurring “Teresa’s Fault” theme, Production is permitted to edit and/or fabricate footage to tell it’s tale.  Season 5’s tale is more disjointed than usual since it appears Production can’t make up it’s mind whether it wants to pretend that Teresa is the puppet master for Jan, Kim D or Penny. Furthermore, Production can’t seem to decide whether it wants to portray Teresa as “slow” or a master manipulator.  The truth is clear: these women are not Teresa’s puppets. They have repeatedly declared that Teresa did not encourage, participate or promote the rumor that Melissa was cheating.

Perhaps Siren Media and/or Bravo can finally focus on answering the burning question: Did Melissa cheat? thus making her marriage advice book the biggest joke since the launch of her lip syncing non existent music career.

RHONJ: Tweets To Justify Gorgas’ Violence – New Low

This evening’s episode of RHONJ included the introduction of an UNDATED tweet sent by Penny Dross0s-Karagiorgis.

 she did wt! Really Mel u want to go there! How did u meet Joe ? Bitch

The tweet was used in regards to “cheating rumors for Season 5.” Joe Gorga used the tweet to justify yet another violent tirade against his sister Teresa.

Joe Gorga twitter gate

Once again Production splices the footage with “spit and a prayer”  in the worst editing job in Franchise history. Does Production think viewers are this stupid?

The tweet was sent October 17, 2012; before Season 5 began filming. The following are the true facts surrounding the tweet:

On October 14, 2012, during Part 3 of the RHONJ reunion, Melissa Gorga’s sister, Kim Pirrella retweeted the following regarding John Karagiorgis, Penny’s husband:

Its quite comical that @JohnnyTheGrk banked on being cast on rhwnj even charging a new set of teeth for @pdkhair and BRAVO PASSED!! LMFAO

By Bravo blog dated October 16, 2012, Melissa Gorga threw one of many shots at Penny and Johnny:

As you can see, there are many desperate people on Twitter begging to be on the show. None of them get cast. It’s not Bravo’s style. The more you want it, the less likely you are to get it.

On October 17, 2012 at 7:00 AM – 17 Oct 12, KoKo_Kush @Keena620 alerted Penny to Melissa’s blog and asked Penny to respond:

@MelissaGorga threw a dig at @PDKhair and her hubby in her new blog. Penny plz call this bitch out

@PDKhair she said there are many desperate ppl on Twitter begging to be on the show. Hmmm made me think of u. I wish bravo would cast u.

On October 17, 2012 at 7:32 AM – 17 Oct 12, Penny Drossos responded as follows:

@Keena620 @MelissaGorga she did wt! Really Mel u want to go there! How did u meet Joe ? Bitch

Penny’s reply  tweet was in response to Melissa’s unsolicited ad hominem attack on Penny and Melissa’s sister’s attack on Penny’s husband.

Fast forward to Season 5:

On February 28, 2013, Joe and Melissa Gorga filmed with Penny at Chakra in Paramus where the Gorgas allegedly tried to convince Penny to say that Teresa Giudice prompted the cheating rumors.

In or about March, 2013, Joe Gorga and Richard Wakile showed up at Johnny’s place of business with a proposition. Johnny refused.

In Mid March, the cast went to Arizona to film the Spa retreat at Miraval. Joe Gorga stated “i  don’t know the woman Penny. I don’t know her husband” Joe failed to mention that days earlier he and Melissa filmed with Penny, nor did he admit that he and Rich Wakile traveled to Johnny’s business, Rutt’s Hut to meet with Johnny. Notwithstanding these encounters, Joe  insisted that Teresa must confront Penny about the cheating rumors that plague Melissa.

Throughout the scene, Melissa looked scared: Scared that eventually the focus would shift from who started the rumors, to whether the rumors were true.

If Melissa Gorga wanted the nasty tweets to stop, why did she and her sisters not only attack people on twitter but encourage others to attack on their behalf?

Tonight’s verbal assault on Penny Drossos was staged to justify Joe Gorga’s violent attack on Johnny Karagiorgis which occurred within days upon their return to New Jersey.

RHONJ renamed “The Bash Teresa Till Viewers Hurl Show”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey is not scripted! Something that is scripted cannot possibly be so utterly inconsistent and so far afield from believability.

Instead, RHONJ has become a poorly edited piecemeal series of vignettes patched together with bubblegum and spit.

Teresa at the lunch inThe July 7th episode should be renamed “The Bash Teresa Till Viewers Hurl Show” because every scene was heavily edited to either discuss what a monster Teresa is or to show Teresa reveling in the news that Melissa made a cuckold of Teresa’s brother.  I call bull on Bravo!

Bravo captioned a photo of Teresa  as follows: “Is this the new Teresa? She doesn’t want to be involved in a rumor about Melissa?” thus implying that the old Teresa was involved in setting Melissa up. It never stops!

What is more disturbing than the farce of an episode is the spin that is being played out on Twitter and in blogs to attempt to “save face” from the evil powers of Production.

The Episode aired a scene with Teresa, Kim D, Jennifer Dalton, Penny and Jan at a restaurant. The conversation was clearly choppy and edited. Teresa looked like she would rather be having her teeth pulled than sitting at that table and she has since tweeted that she left (escaped, ran, parachuted away from) the table as quickly as she could.  Frankly, Teresa must have a pit in her stomach every time a camera crew says action.

Why is it that a production crew that normally films with 2 to 3 cameras with little to no action scenes never seems to capture a person talking at the most critical times?  Why is it when someone is filmed actually talking, they never complete a full thought before the camera and sound cut to someone else in the room? 

The scene filmed in late January 2013. It was not the first time the cheating issues was discussed on camera so all the parties present at the table were fully aware about the extent of Jan’s knowledge.

In order to save face, Jennifer Dalton tweeted that Kim D set up the meeting with Jan and Penny to discuss Milania Hair Care:

Jen Dalton says Kim D set up meeting with Penny & Jan crop

Teresa’s close friend and book co-writer tweeted that Teresa, Kim D & Jennifer were out for drinks and “Jan and Penny just came over”:

Heather MacLean says Tre were out for Drinks and jan just came over

How does anyone reconcile these inconsistent tweets? Simple. Both are true depending on the production assistant assigned to each member of the cast.

Production sets up these ridiculous scenes and each production assistant assigned to the Housewives, Friends of the Housewives and Friends of Friends of the Housewives LIES to their respective charge! Production either tells their charge not to tell the others what the topic will be OR counts on the fact the parties don’t communicate outside the bounds of filming.

The cheating issue was initially discussed on camera at the December 3, 2012 Holiday Party. It included “the telephone call with Mike” and the real characters who revealed and discussed Melissa Gorga’s cheating ways. Why Production did not air the truth seems to be to tack the blame squarely on Teresa’s shoulders!

Dear Bravo, Congratulations, the Viewers have finally hurled.

Mobwife Antics Overshadow Fifth Grade Graduation

What happens when a member of VH1’s Mobwives takes her crazy into real life. . .

The following post was spotted on Linda Scarpa’s Facebook page:

Nothing like being slapped in your face by the fakest mobwife of them all at your kids graduation . . . Gotta laugh cant control lowlives even if they think they are living the high life . . . dont change the fact that your still a LOWLIFE. . . who does that shit at a kids’ graduation. . . SMH — feeling annoyed

linda scarpa fb comment cropFacebook comments are comical– (over 100 comments to date)

It appears that Linda Scarpa  is less than pleased with a “Mobwife” making an ass of herself at the Fifth Grade Graduation of Linda’s twins.  So rather than engage at the graduation, Linda is calling her out on social media.

Linda is not impressed by the woman’s  TV show – the focus of the day was supposed to be the children. Instead the focus became the woman’s screaming tantrum.

 

Who is the “fakest mobwife” that would start a scene in front of hundreds of people at a Fifth Grade Graduation with no regard for the other children or parents? None other than . . .

carla knife 2

. . . Carla Facciolo

Looks like Carla Facciolo thinks she’s still filming the show but no one at the Graduation was impressed by her antics. Lucky for her, Linda didn’t want to engage with her twins, family and attendees watching the drama unfold.

Carla’s actions come on the heels of Linda’s unrelenting defense of Carla on Twitter after a disgusting tweet appeared accusing Carla of using a homophobic slur.

carla facc says fag

Horror! Outrage! . . . as all pounced on Carla for the tweet.  Even Carla’s closest allies distanced themselves. Linda, however, hunkered down. As a friend of over 25 years she remained steadfast in her belief that Carla would not make such a despicable statement.

As soon as the tweet appeared, Linda (@LindaScarpa) immediately tweeted that it was a hoax. Shortly thereafter, while the attacks continued on Carla, Linda posted proof of the photoshopped tweet. . . the boy making the accusations inadvertently tweeted a different version of what was supposed to be the same tweet. HOAX REVEALED! Crisis over.

So why did Carla suddenly feel compelled to physically assault Linda and make a scene? A scene that had the attendees asking Linda where were the film crews hiding! Frankly, nothing justifies physically assaulting someone (in front of her children) . . . didn’t Carla say as much when Love assaulted her?

Instead of apologizing, Carla responded by posting the following:

carla says friends of 25 yearsInteresting to note, none of those “friends of 25 years” came to Carla’s defense when the homophobic tweet was posted with the exception of Linda Scarpa.

Linda Scarpa commented to the within story as follows:

RHONJ: Exxon In Hot Pursuit of Wakile & Sons, Inc.

wakile exxonRichard Wakile (husband of Kathy Wakile of RHONJ) is no stranger to the judiciary in New Jersey.

Wakile’s legal escapades, including but not limited to his landscaper’s successful lawsuit against him and Exxon’s lawsuit, have previously been reported by various media outlets.  Discussion of the Exxon lawsuit was  resurrected as a result of Wakile’s famous twitter escapades.

Wakile’s famous twitter escapades are well documented on a twitter feed entitled @WakileMustGo. He has directed his inappropriate tweets at women of varying ages, calling them skanks, douches, dogs, claiming to know where they work, etc. His most offensive tweets are those targeting young women-one in particular stands out where he felt the need to mention the profession of a blogger’s father. After each tirade, Wakile deletes all offensive tweets.

On the evening of June 25, 2013, Wakile commenced yet another “twitter women hater rant.”  The following are highlights of his depravity:

wakile rant 1

wakile rant 2

As a result of Wakile’s rampage, I sought answers regarding the Judgment obtained by Exxon in the Wakile matter.  Wakile repeatedly refused to answer whether the $113,449.46 Judgment had been paid, but insisted that “Richard Wakile” did not appear “in the papers”.

Wakile rich never not paid

(except of course the landscaper) Exxon?

It appears that Wakile learned to answer questions about his legal issues from Jacqueline Laurita.

In accordance with the invitation of Richard Wakile, I read ALL the pleadings in the matter entitled ExxonMobil Oil Corporation vs. Wakile & Sons, Inc. and Adel Abouzid, Civil Docket No. CV-09-1265 (hereinafter Exxon v. Wakile)

The procedural history of the case is replete with strategic maneuvering by Defendants, but not once did Defendants deny any of the allegations made by Exxon.  The Complaint alleged among other things, breach of contract, trespass and conversion (improper taking of Exxon’s property).

The Federal Court issued a preliminary injunction forbidding Defendants from transferring, removing, selling or giving away any of Exxon’s property:

Wakile order injunctive relief crop 1

Wakile order injunctive relief crop 2

Defendants never denied the allegations of the Complaint, never denied that they wrote bad checks, never denied that they converted (improperly took) Exxon’s equipment or that they owed the funds. Defendants admitted that they forged letters from the Bank.

Defendants did nothing UNTIL after Exxon obtained a Judgment against Defendants which awarded Exxon $113,449.56 against the Defendants.

Wakile Judgment

After Exxon obtained its Judgment, it sought to collect it’s money from Defendants.  When Defendants failed to pay, Exxon asked for depositions (questioning under oath) to explore its post judgment remedies and to determine Defendants’ assets.  That is where the games began.

Defendants failed to appear for depositions on numerous occasions in violation of Subpoena and Court Orders. Exxon attempted to to reschedule the depositions on several occasions. On one such occasion, Exxon obtained a Court Order scheduling the depositions to take place on November 19. Defendant failed to appear.

Shortly after the date of the scheduled deposition, Defendants’ attorney faxed a “Bankruptcy Petition” listing Exxon’s Judgment in an effort to discharge (wipe out) Defendants’ obligation to pay the money. Bankruptcy law allows persons to discharge debts provided it was not obtained by fraud or other exemptions.

By letter dated December 1, Exxon’s Counsel advised the Federal Judge that Defendants had failed to notify Exxon of the alleged Bankruptcy (and failed to provide the proper address for Exxon on the Bankruptcy Petition). Exxon contended that it was entitled to question Adel Abouzid to determine the assets and shareholders of Wakile & Sons, Inc. and to determine what happened to Exxon’s equipment.

The Federal Judge agreed with Exxon and held Defendants Wakile & Sons, Inc. and Adel Abouzid in contempt for their repeated failures to appear, Ordered that the U.S. Marshall arrest Adul Abouzid and awarded Exxon counsel fees to be paid by Defendants.

Wakile Order Contempt both Defendants cropAdditional arrest warrants have been issued, but the US Marshal’s Office has not yet executed the warrants.  Without Defendant Adel Abouzid’s testimony, Exxon may not be aware that Richard Wakile was/is a shareholder of Wakile & Sons, Inc. Furthermore, if there is a finding of alleged fraud, Exxon may “pierce the corporate veil” of Wakile & Sons, Inc. and look to it’s shareholders to cover the liabilities of the corporation.

FerrariExxonMobil

Richard Wakile may want to spend less time on twitter calling women douches, dogs and skanks and more time resolving the Exxon Judgment against Wakile & Sons, Inc.

RHONJ: Caroline on Tre & Divorce – Why Not Show Clip?

On May 19, 2013, Bravo aired a special entitled Watch What Happens Live Special: Jersey Housewives Tell All. It was basically a one on one with the ladies from RHONJ and Andy Cohen.

The “Tell All” was an opportunity for Jacqueline, Kathy, Melissa and Caroline to rehabilitate their deplorable behavior from Season 4, while taking calculated shots at Teresa Giudice.

Andy Cohen told Caroline Manzo that viewers were “bothered” by Caroline Manzo’s prediction  of a Giudice divorce and a potential book.

CarolineManzoMad

Without the benefit of the July 22, 2012 clip, Caroline responded as follows:

I didn’t say that.  I never predicted a divorce, that’s not nice. I said if they were to ever to divorce she would capitalize on it. And I was right, because two weeks later she put out a magazine article about it.  It was me saying what’s sacred in your life?

It is difficult to determine what is more offensive, Caroline predicting that Teresa would capitalize on an alleged failed marriage or her predicting a divorce. Furthermore, how does Caroline Manzo know that Teresa “put out a magazine article about it?”

It is interesting to note, that Bravo failed to provide the clip of Caroline’s “talking head” to determine what she actually said about Teresa and Joe. So we are providing it for your review: The following is the relevant portions of the July 22, 2012 transcript:

Teresa wants it all, and I think that the demands she put on him [Joe Giudice] led him to make decisions that weren’t the best. And I think he resents her for it, and he’s going to pay the ultimate price for it.

Prediction: Something may happen where someone has to go somewhere. Teresa’s going to have to pull herself up on her bootstraps and take over. She’ll say, ‘You know what, I tried. I stood by him, but I have to divorce him now. And I’m gonna show my daughters what it’s like to be strong and independent on your own and survive.

There’s a book there somewhere. You heard it here first.

The night when “the Prediction” aired (July 22, 2012),  Caroline Manzo and Meghan McCann appeared on Watch What Happens Live.  Andy asked about the divorce prediction and told Caroline that “you said something that is getting a lot of play on twitter.”  When Andy stated play the clip, Caroline smirked and said “Thank You. ” Here is the clip that was played.

After the clip was played, Caroline stated:

I meant it. I’m sorry that I had to say it. It’s insensitive. It was wrong. But I meant it. Over the  past year, 2 years I been watching someone put things out in the tabloids that are very sensitive to their family, their children to their husband, to their marriage and there is no conscience there, so why would there be a conscience if he goes away.

Meghan McCann indicated that she admired Caroline Manzo for admitting to saying something that was unpopular and sticking to her convictions!

Caroline’s comments came on the heels of Jacqueline Laurita stating that Teresa and Joe “lead separate lives.” So who are we kidding and why is Bravo still looking to hide Caroline’s nasty, self serving, know nothing comments? All Bravo had to do to show Caroline to be the liar she is would have been to show the clip of “the Prediction” OR the clip of Caroline’s response on the prior WWHL. They did neither, because Bravo sought to rehabilitate Caroline’s messy predictions on Housewives Tell All!!

This article has not even touched the surface of Caroline Manzo’s  intrusive comments about Teresa Giudice’s parenting or comments about the Giudice children. Yet during Season 3, the cast crucified Teresa for writing that she does “not condone young girls stripping to bring in business to a car wash.”

Bravo needs to understand, viewers “are not buying it” no matter the spin.
