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:

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:

P: She invites me places. I don’t just appear . . . In response to Gorga’s statement that Teresa thinks you stalk her.

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.

RHONJ: Melissa Gorga Fails to Silence Her Past

A few months ago I was told that a man by the name of Anthony Arater could confirm many of the rumors regarding Melissa Gorga’s past and her alleged cheating.  Unfortunately, Anthony no longer lived in New Jersey, I didn’t have his phone number and he didn’t have a twitter account so it was difficult to contact him.

Then one day, I was able to speak to Anthony by telephone and his insight and detail clearly showed that he had dated Melissa at a young age and continued to maintain a
“relationship” with her well after her marriage to Joe Gorga. Anthony had proof in the form of letters and photographs.  Clearly Melissa remembers Club Karma – where Anthony worked at the time.  Anthony was able to explain many of the missing pieces in Melissa’s sordid history.

anthony arater club karma melissa

Anthony at Club Karma with colleague

Anthony also explained that he was negotiating with a certain publication to print his story.  Unfortunately, the negotiations were allegedly leaked to Melissa’s camp.

Anthony claims that he was contacted by Melissa Gorga’s cousin. Anthony said that Melissa’s cousin and he remained friends throughout his relationship with Melissa.  Melissa’s cousin asked why he would “want to hurt Melissa by disclosing intimate details of their relationship.” Anthony also alleges that Melissa’s cousin told him that if it’s a matter of money, he should “let them know.” Anthony refused any further discussion and told Melissa’s cousin that if Melissa or Joe Gorga wanted to talk to him they knew how to reach him.

Shortly thereafter, according to Anthony, Melissa Gorga called him. After exchanging minor pleasantries, she asked him if he would reconsider publishing his story. Melissa told him that it would hurt her book sales. When she realized that Anthony was not swayed, she allegedly asked him how much he was being paid because “her publisher would be interested in the story.” Anthony explained that he was not interested in any payoff and ended the conversation.

Anthony has confirmed that he arrived in New Jersey last week to finalize negotiations to tell the Real history of his relationship with Melissa Gorga before and after her marriage.

Stay tuned because Anthony leaves nothing to the imagination! Anthony Arater has confirmed “I won’t be bought off and I won’t be silenced.”

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

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.

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.

RHONJ: Is Bravo Liable for Bravolebrities’ Raging Assaults

RageChristeningBravo introduced Joe Gorga to RHONJ viewers as he raged at his son’s Christening.  Gorga turned his infant son’s religious celebration into a battle royale: guests were punched, kicked, thrown, pushed – all because Gorga was unable to control his anger.  With the addition of Joe and Melissa Gorga, RHONJ has become a series of vignettes wrapped in insults, screaming matches, threats, heartbreak and violence.

In fact, Bravo was unable to air most of the Punta Cana footage because of a lawsuit which alleged that Bravo and 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.

See specifics on Punta Cana lawsuit.

In Season 4, Gorga continued his failure/refusal to control his violent outbursts through out the season. During the Wakile pool party, Gorga raged at his sister, cursing within ear shot of the children.

pfs joe gorgaIn the season finale Gorga attacked Kim D at her own fashion show, calling her a scum of the earth, whore and accusing her of being high, etc. Fellow RHONJ castmates tweeted their support by indicating they admired Gorga for “rescuing his wife.”  On what alternate Universe does a man bellow insults at a woman, call her scum and a  whore in front of a crowd and is admired for doing it? Oh, yes the Faux Reality known as BravoTV.

Season 5 premieres on June 2, 2013.  Several cast members, including Joe Gorga have been charged with assault and terrorist threats for causing bodily injury to a third party during filming.  Notwithstanding the pending charges, Bravo is promoting Season 5 by previewing a brawl wherein Gorga attacks Joe Giudice (or so he tried.) The following are still shots of the melee:

QUESTION: Is Bravo liable for the Bravolebrities’ Raging Assaults in StilletoGate?

ANSWER: YES, Bravo and Siren Media had ample proof of Gorga’s propensity for violence, his outbursts were encouraged, within the scope of his employment and thus foreseeable.

In New Jersey, there is a legal doctrine that holds employers liable to third parties for the acts committed by an employee “within the scope of his employment.” The question as to whether the employee acted “within the  scope” is fact sensitive to each case. Courts use the following factors to guide their analysis:

  1. whether the act is of the kind he is employed to perform;
  2. whether the act occurs substantially within the authorized time and space limits;
  3. whether the act is actuated, at least in part, by a purpose to serve the employer; and
  4. whether the use of force is foreseeable.

As to Factor (1), Gorga is employed to create drama. The fact that Bravo used Gorga’s outbursts to promote the upcoming season indicates that he is employed to participate and perpetuate these violent outbursts.

As to Factor (2), there is no question that the alleged assault occurred while filming on site. If reports are accurate, Siren Media prepared the site for the physical confrontation by rearranging furniture and putting security into place.

As to Factor (3), the violent outburst served Bravo’s purpose to create the type of over the top drama to attract viewers and pump up ratings.

Regarding Factor (4), Bravo has filmed Gorga’s violent outbursts for years. Foreseeability of the employee’s act is “crucial” to a finding of liability and Gorga’s outbursts are easily documented.

In the instant matter, Gorga’s repeated consistent rages (without consequence by Bravo) make it clear that his violent behavior is both foreseeable and within the scope of his employment. Thus, Bravo may once again be forced to pay for the bad behavior of it’s Bravolebrities.

The aforementioned analysis deals with the civil liability associated with injuries/damages caused by Bravolebrities.

RHONJ Marco Sisters’ Fan Tells All

marco sisters fan blog sizeFaux was recently contacted by a woman who was entrusted with running one of the Marco Sisters’ Twitter Fan Pages.  Due to reasons that will become evident hereinafter, this woman shall be known by the alias Jane Doe.

Jane sought a forum to reveal the alleged underhanded tactics employed by the Marco Sisters in pursuing their alleged goals – those being the following:

  • Ensuring Melissa Gorga’s longevity in the limelight
  • Teleporting Kim and Lysa into the RHONJ; and
  • Tarnishing Teresa Giudice’s image so that she would be compelled to depart from Bravo.

silhouette-womanJane agreed to a telephone interview to ensure a free flow of information and follow up questioning.   She agreed to answer all questions without reservation. Not once did she “take the Fifth.”   Jane was brutally honest; accepting responsibility for lying to assist the Marco’s propaganda machine. Her awakening shows the truth shall always prevail:

Faux:    Jane, I understand you ran a Fan Page for the Marco Sisters, is that correct?

 Jane:    Yes, I did.

 Faux:   Tell me how running the Marco Sisters’ Fan Page come to pass.

 Jane:    I was a big fan of Melissa Gorga and I used to tweet her all the time. I was supportive of Melissa and Joe. Eventually Melissa’s sisters Kim and Lysa followed me. We would tweet.  Then Kim asked if I would be interested in running a fan account for Melissa. I was flattered. I loved that Melissa took care of her family, she is beautiful, she was sweet to her fans.

 Faux:   Did Melissa’s sister, Kim, tell you what “running a fan page for Melissa Gorga” would entail and whether you would be compensated?

 Jane:    Kim told me that I would have to tweet and retweet things in support of Melissa & Joe Gorga, make sure I kept up with all her appearances, show what a great wife and mother she was and what a nice person she was. She told me not to be negative. I wasn’t getting paid but she said I would get to know things about Melissa in advance and I would get invited to events.

 Faux:     So how did you go from agreeing to run a Melissa Gorga Fan page to running a Marcos’ Sisters’ Fan page?

 Jane:      Kim told me that her niece wanted to run the Melissa account and told me I could run Marco Sisters account instead.

 Faux:     So tell me about your experience running the Marco Sisters’ page. Was it everything you thought it would be?

Jane:    At first it was great. I would get recognition from Melissa and her sisters. I kept it positive. I worked with their niece who ran some of the other accounts. It was loads of fun. Kim told me that she and Lysa expected to be on the show by next season. They told me they would be taking Teresa and Kathy’s place. So we should show our support by tweeting about them too.

 Faux:     It sounds like things were going well, yet eventually Kim asked you to deactivate the page, correct?

Jane:     Yes.

 Faux:     So how did you fall out of grace with the Marcos?

Jane:     Everything Kim told me was a lie but I didn’t realize it. Kim and Lysa told me that some of Teresa’s fans were doing evil things to Melissa and the fan pages needed to focus on them. Lysa told me a fan named Bino and a blogger named AllAboutTRH were trashing the Gorga family and part of my job was to go after them.

 Faux:     What did you understand her to mean by “go after them?”

 Jane:      Lysa told me that those two were making up lies about Melissa and  run interference, spread the word that Bino and Roxy who ran a blog called All About The Real Housewives were getting their instructions directly from Teresa. It got dark. I spent all my time attacking Bino and AllAboutTRH. It got worse like a snowball. Kim told me to tweet Bino sent me messages. I was doing things I was so uncomfortable doing. I was sliding into a negative place. All of us that were running fan accounts spent more time trashing the Giudices than we spent promoting the Gorgas.

Faux:    So was there a water shed moment for you?

 Jane:     Yes. One night Melissa’s make up guy started bashing Teresa bad. I mean he worked for Melissa and that was her sister in law and he was saying disgusting things. I told Lysa and Kim and they wouldn’t answer me. I told him stop but he got even more nasty and told me to mind my business. Before this when I tweeted about Laurita, Kim sent me a message to take down my tweet before Jacqueline saw it. I didn’t like attacking Joe Gorga’s sister. I wouldn’t do it and one of Kim’s friends told me that I wasn’t a team player. I did everything they asked and I was pissed when they said I wasn’t a team player.

 Faux:     What did you do?

Jane:     I sent Kim and Lisa messages telling them what happened and how I felt. I thought if they knew what the makeup guy was doing, they would tell him to stop. I was wrong. They didn’t get him to stop. They stopped talking to me except to tell me to deactivate the account. Kim’s friend came after me and wouldn’t leave me alone. She threatened to expose me. I saw what she did to people when she went after them.

Faux:    Did you deactivate the account?

 Jane:     At first I was. Then I thought it’s better if I tell what was going on. I posted some of what happened. Kim’s squad came after me full throttle.  They knew they had to destroy me because I knew the truth about them. It’s all an act and they use fans like me, feed us lies and make us attack and make up rumors about Teresa and her supporters. The make up guy and the people that work for Melissa know if they don’t do what they’re told, they’ll be replaced with people who will. I won’t deactivate the account because I created it, I worked at it, so why should they find another unsuspecting fan to use it for spreading lies about Melissa’s sister in law.

 Faux:    Jane, what do you want our readers to know about the Marco Sisters?

Jane:     Thanks for giving me a chance to tell what happened to me. I want everyone to know that Melissa, Kim and Lysa are after fame and money. They don’t care who they have to slaughter or who they lie to get those two things. Kim and Lysa want to be on the show so bad they both work on losing weight and getting plastic surgery like Melissa, but they are so ugly on the inside.  I have the messages saved so I can prove everything. I know how they use people to attack Teresa, family and her fans. They have 5 people handling at least 40 accounts that I know. I stopped watching the show because of them. It was a terrible experience I don’t wish on my worst enemy.

The interview lasted in excess of two hours. The aforementioned excerpts are intended to reveal the reality behind fan pages, and the dark world of Gorga Marco Fan pages. This interview sent us tumbling down the rabbit hole.

UPDATE: May 5, 2013 -True to Form: This evening, the account @MarcoSistersFan tweeted that it never gave an interview to Faux Reality Entertainment. It claimed that it stumbled upon the within interview and felt compelled to set the record straight.

Gorga / Marco Spin continues:

  • How could an account that hasn’t tweeted since September 2012, remarkably return the SAME day as the posting of the aforementioned interview?
  • Why would an account who when last tweeted sparred with Gorga/Marco suddenly be united on the SAME day of the posting of the aforementioned interview?
  • Why would a person who claims he/she runs the account fail to email Faux or post on the Faux site to proclaim imposter, but instead took to twitter?
  • Why would anti Melissa Gorga tweets by @Bino989 suddenly disappear from the TL of the account?

marco sisters caption

Simple – Jane Doe’s telephonic interview occurred on April 12, 2013. Prior to the interview, in order to prove custody of the account, Jane allowed me an opportunity to log into @MarcoSistersFan. Jane confirmed that she would relinquish the account on or about April 16, 2013 (prior to the publishing of the within interview). Jane was certain that upon the posting of the interview, the new custodian would react – and react they did.

RHONJ: Melissa Gorga GUILTY – Failing to Use Child Safety Restraint

melissa gorga courtWith all the rumors swirling around, this will confirm that Melissa Gorga was in fact a guest of Boonton Township Municipal Court!  Missy was charged with the following violations:

  • NJSA 39:3-76.2A – Failing to have proper safety restraint on child
  • NJSA 39:8-1 – Failing to have Vehicle Inspected
  • NJSA 39:3-33 Failure to properly display license plate
  • NJSA 39:3-29B Failure to have Registration 
  • NJSA 39:3-29C Failure to have Insurance Card 

On April 30, 2013, Missy appeared in Court for what was supposed to be a first appearance to enter a plea.  Due to the confrontation that Missy had with the police officer, the Prosecutor indicated that he could not amend or dismiss any violations.  Missy’s request to seal the record (so that it would not be available to the public) was rejected.

In an effort to do damage control, the Gorga team requested to plead Guilty and be done with the entire matter. So, on April 30, 2013, Defendant Melissa Gorga pled as follows:

  • GUILTY to Failing to have proper safety restraint on child
  • GUILTY to Failing to have Vehicle Inspected
  • GUILTY to Failure to properly display license plates

The remaining violations were dismissed with court costs assessed against Melissa since she produced a registration and an insurance card for the Prosecutor.

We look forward to Melissa Gorga’s explanation on how Teresa Giudice is responsible for her failure to use proper safety restraints for her child.

Exclusive: RHONJ – Bryan Bowen Sets the Record Straight

Season 5Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 5 is scheduled to premier on June 2, 2013 and rumors are rampant.  Speculation is abound. Viewers want to know:

  • Will Teresa Giudice receive the “bad edit” yet again;
  • Will Melissa Gorga’s infidelities be exposed;
  • Will Jacqueline Laurita’s foreclosure and financial crisis be acknowledged;
  • Will Caroline Manzo stop breast feeding her adult children;
  • What Kim D event will be used as the backdrop for Season’s 5 “set up;”
  • Will Penny Drossos, Jennifer D and Elvira run for the hills when they see the crazy workings of RHONJ?
  • Will Kathy Wakile get a story line that doesn’t bore everyone to sleep?

So many questions and so much speculation. . .

One of the most anticipated questions revolve around Melissa Gorga’s infidelities. Various media outlets have opined that discussions of Melissa’s infidelities have been filmed.  There have been reports that Melissa’s ex-boyfriend, Bryan Bowen was included in the filming of Season 5.

On February 11, 2013, Radar OnLine reported that “a source close to the show” stated that while filming the December 3, 2012 Fashion Show, Penny Drossos telephoned Bryan Bowen regarding Melissa Gorga’s infidelities:

radar on line brian bulldog phone call

Anyone who knows Bryan Bowen or who follows him on twitter  (@Bulldog_NJ) for more than a New York minute knows that Bryan Bowen does not cower or go by an alias “Mike.” The Radar OnLine story as described by “the source close to the show” seemed contrived and unbelievable.

Express permission photo

So I asked Bryan if he would agree to SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT to a very limited series of direct questions about Radar OnLine’s story and he agreed.  The following is my Exclusive interview with BRYAN BOWEN:

Faux: Bryan, did you talk to Penny Drossos on December 3, 2012 regarding Melissa Gorga?

Bryan: No, I didn’t talk to Penny or anyone else from the show about Melissa Gorga on December 3rd.

Faux: Have you ever been known as “Mike” on the show, and by show I mean Real Housewives of New Jersey?

Bryan: (smiles) Not that I know of.

Faux: So is Radar OnLine’s source incorrect when he or she stated that you were on a telephone call, known as Mike and you validated things regarding Melissa?

Bryan: The source was wrong.

Faux: Have you been contacted by Bravo or Production about Season 5? Okay, Okay, I withdraw the question, but you can’t blame me for trying. 

Thank you Bryan for setting the record straight. On behalf of viewers and your fans, we all look forward to you telling your story on Bravo or elsewhere.

In the Life: The Story of Mob Royalty – Little Linda Scarpa

Growing up in an Italian neighborhood in Jersey City, NJ, I was fascinated by those ” In The Life” – the term used to describe the men who kept the neighborhood safe. Those men drove fancy cars, lived in amazing houses and their kids were treated like royalty by the locals. We knew who the wiseguys were, but not exactly what they did for a living, nor did we care. To us, they were our friends’ fathers or uncles who gave us money for ice cream, bought boxes of our girl scout cookies (and let us keep the cookies!!) and threw the most lavish parties for their kids.

linda scarpa and her dadDecades later, I have again become fascinated by a young woman who grew up “in the life” – Little Linda Scarpa, daughter of the late Greg Scarpa (Greg Scarpa was legendary in our neighborhood).

Linda Scarpa was one of kids that would have been treated like royalty in our neighborhood. Linda grew up privileged: parents who adored her, private schools, drivers, designer clothes and anything money could buy.

Fast forward to 2013, the young woman from the privileged past lost her father as she turned 25 years old. She was forced to reconcile the loving father with the stories of his “alternate” life wherein he played “judge, jury and executioner.”  The life, which surrounded her, while tragic, shaped Linda Scarpa into the woman she is today.

linda scarpaI Married A Mobster. She is currently writing her memoir as the daughter of the man feared by all wiseguys. In addition, Linda was just slated to star in an upcoming show entitled Boss Ladies.

So why does Linda Scarpa stand out among the wives, daughters, etc that have recently come under the spotlight?  It’s simple. . .

Linda is real. She tells it as it is – good, bad or otherwise. Whether Linda is interacting with a celebrity or the street sweeper, she treats people with the respect she deems they deserve – unaffected by financial status.

Anyone who follows Linda on twitter (@LindaScarpa) can readily see that she enjoys interacting with family, friends and fans. She has been and continues to be outspoken regarding the Mobwives Series – often questioning how “real” the “reality” show is.

Linda does not shy away from any question, but do not cross the line because her straight forward approach is never more evident than when Linda is schooling someone on proper respect. Linda uses words as her weapon of choice.

When a blogger sought to question Linda’s parent’s marital status, Linda shut the blogger down faster than “a speeding bullet.”  When a Mobwives groupie crossed the line regarding Linda’s family, Linda made it her mission to expose him for the fraud he turned out to be – she revealed that he faked being twitter “verified.” Shortly thereafter, he announced he was shutting down his account.

From Daddy’s privileged princess  . . . to the harsh family tragedies . . .

. . . Little Linda Scarpa . . . her star keeps rising.

RHONJ Brawl Leads to Criminal Charges – StilettoGate

Jacqueline-has-had-enoughSome people never learn . . .

The blonde girl is always the first to get hacked up in horror films;

The guy wearing the red shirt is always killed on Star Trek; and

A brawl always breaks out at Kim D parties with Jacqueline Laurita at the center of the controversy. . .

. . . it’s as certain as paying taxes and death.

So let’s tell a tale, a tale of a Grand Opening and Kim D’s promise to Bravo to deliver with a little help from her friends . . .

Throughout filming of Season 5, Kim D continued to schedule “events” and invite her RHONJ “friends” because her orders were to sponsor events until “something of interest” was captured on film.

Kim D scheduled the Grand Opening of a second location for her store in Ridgewood, NJ.  The event was scheduled so quickly that Production failed to obtain the requisite permits and insurance (town retroactively issued one of the requisite permits the following day). It is unclear whether the landlord’s permission was necessary pursuant to the provisions of the lease. Furthermore, it is unclear whether the State provided the proper licensing for hair/waxing services (all of which were offered and captured on film).

In order to lure Penny Drossos (known as PDKhair) and her husband, John Karagiorgis (known as @JohnnyTheGrk) to the March 30, 2013 event, Joe Gorga and Richard Wakile spent the weeks preceding the event contacting @JohnnyTheGrk, offering to have their wives film with Penny and obtaining Karagiorgis’ commitment to attend the event (in order to publicly prove that any strife was behind them).  Production asked Karagiorgis to attend in writing, confirming same the evening of the event.

On March 30, 2013, the invited guests were permitted entry according to a pre-arranged time table. As invited guests, Penny Drossos and her girlfriend were escorted into the salon, John Karagiorgis and three remaining guests were told to wait outside for their cue (they along with other guests waited for over an hour).

Upon entry, Penny Drossos was immediately confronted by Jacqueline Laurita who in a span of minutes went from asking if they knew each other, to making accusations about her autistic son, to apologizing to Penny Drossos and bursting into tears. Surrounding guests were stunned!!

Production then ushered Penny Drossos to Teresa Giudice. When Teresa asked Penny Drossos to back her up that it was Penny who brought up Melissa’s past at a prior event (this Season), Penny Drossos reminded Teresa that it was Teresa and Kim D who asked Penny to confirm who Melissa’s ex was because of a phone call Juicy allegedly received.  [In fact, last year, Twitterland was abuzz when various individuals  tweeted about Melissa's alleged infidelities and compromising pictures from Cancun, etc.]

As the drama among the housewives continued, furniture was rearranged, security moved into position and Jacqueline Laurita removed her shoes.  John Karagiorgis was cued to enter the salon and greet Joe Gorga, which Karagiorgis thought was in accordance with discussions he and Gorga had prior to filming. Instead of the friendly banter that Gorga had promised, Gorga turned purple with rage and was unable to “find his words” as soon as Karagiorgis greeted him.  Gorga erupted into a physical assault upon Mr. Karagiorgis. The Lauritas followed Gorga’s lead and Jacqueline Laurita ultimately attacked striking Karagiorgis in the head with the heel of her stiletto.

Production refused to contact the police. Mr. Karagiorgis proceeded to the Ridgewood Police Department. While Karagiorgis was reporting the incident, Joe Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita and Chris Laurita ran home.

While at the Ridgewood Police Department, Mr. Karagiorgis’ demeanor was evaluated, he received medical attention, his injuries were documented and he was permitted to file the following charges:

  • Joe Gorga: assault and terroristic threats
  • Chris Laurita: assault and terroristic threats
  • Jacqueline Laurita: assault

On the following day, while Karagiorgios sought further medical attention, Joe Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita and Chris Laurita celebrated Easter with their families.

Classy Easter table March 31 day after fight

Shortly thereafter, Jacqueline Laurita commenced her all too familiar campaign of sending text messages (via cell phone) and direct messages (via tweeter) to Karagiorgios’ family members and friends and on twitter. Her messages ranged from insisting that she didn’t hit anyone with a shoe, to messages insisting that she “didn’t mean to hit” Mr. Karagiorgis.

On April 2, 2013, on World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD), Jacqueline Laurita took the time to taunt an autism advocate by falsely alleging that the advocate wanted Jacqueline to keep her son “a secret.” Laurita knew her tweet was false and was fully aware that such a tweet would cause her fans to attack @RealityJulie.  People who knew @RealityJulie to be a true autism advocate were outraged by Jacqueline Laurita’s blatant disregard for the truth and the harm to Julie.

On Thursday, April 4, 2013, Joe Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita and Chris Laurita learned that they were charged with criminal complaints. The same day, they filed cross complaints against Karagiorgis.

Fortunately, the charges filed by Gorga and the Lauritas forced them to testify as to their version of the incident.  The testimony was predictable and inconsistent with the lapse in time from the brawl to reporting, etc. The unedited footage of the event has been demanded by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office.

Contrary to Jacqueline Laurita’s advice to her daughter (when Ashlee assaulted Danielle Staub in Season 2), Jacqueline refuses to take responsibility for her actions.

There are so many unanswered questions:

  • Why would the Gorgas who claimed they have been stalked for “years” wait until they were charged to file cross complaints?
  • Why would Joe Gorga and his wife film with Penny Drossos less than a month earlier at Chakra in Paramus if they felt they were being stalked and cyberbullied?
  • Why would the Producers insist that Drossos and Karagiorgis attend Kim D’s event?
  • Why would Jacqueline Laurita send dozens of messages contradicting her Court testimony?
  • Why would Karagiorgis go to the Police and seek medical attention the night of the brawl if he was “on drugs” (as alleged by Jacqueline Laurita)?

Unlike Bravo, all unanswered questions will be answered courtesy of the Courts

#StilettoGate was coined by Autism Advocate and twitter personality extraordinaire @RealityJulie

RHONJ: L&S Magazine – Melissa Gorga’s Image Shows Cracks

Since Melissa Marco Gorga was first introduced to the viewers of Real Housewives Of New Jersey, she has worked relentlessly to create an image of the perfect wife and the perfect mother with the perfect life.

The February 25, 2013 edition of Life & Style Magazine reports that Melissa Gorga’s perfect life is crumbling . . .

In Touch Story Melissa does not want

and Melissa is “scrambling to save the image of her ‘perfect marriage.’”

Melissa expected Season 5 would concentrate on her “blossoming” music career.  But it appears that the dream is quickly turning into a nightmare that Missy never anticipated.  Not only has her music career tanked, but the image of her perfect marriage has hit a Titanic size iceberg.

shamlsLife & Style Magazine questions whether the Gorga’s “love at first sight” story is ALL A SHAM.  The story seems to have been created without much forethought since Melissa’s past is coming out to contradict her head on.

“The only reason she [Missy] went with Joe is because Bulldog didn’t want to settle down. . .”

Scenes filmed on January 31, 2013 for Season 5 have opened the door for a very rocky road for the image created by Melissa Gorga.  As the “wholesome image” crumbles, where oh where does Melissa turn?

The Marco camp spin machine seem to be relying heavily on viewer sympathy, “why ruin the reputation of a wife and mother?” Yet, it is Missy who attempted to build on the “wholesome girl victimized by evil sister in law Teresa Giudice.”

Who can forget Joey Gorga’s Reunion declaration that he followed his father’s advice and picked a girl that “walks a straight line.” Well, it appears that the only walk Missy has done is a walk of shame.  

melissa

Hopefully Papa Gorga will counsel Joey Gorga on what to do about the latest allegations of Melissa Gorga’s infidelity.

kim and melissaSources confirm that Kim D “smiles” and plays one cast mate against the other as she peddles her merchandise. Kim D banks on the fact that no one is talking to each other so her treachery is safe for the time being.

pennyWhen Kim D was unable to deliver, Penny Drossos-Karagiorgis was summoned to the rescue. According to Life & Style, “Penny is Bringing the Drama.”

Until recently, it was unclear whether Penny would appear on Season 5 since she refused to be Kim D’s side kick.

Life & Style reports that Penny will appear in Season 5.  As a successful salon owner, Penny was able to answer many of the yet unanswered questions about Melissa’s past.

Inside sources confirm that Penny’s responses to questions regarding Missy’s past will not be evasive or vague.

RHONJ EXCLUSIVE: Bulldog Bryan Courted By Media Outlets

bryan bowen

UPDATE: FEBRUARY 9, 2013

Several weeks ago, twitter exploded when Fame Whorgas identified Bryan Bowen as Melissa Gorga’s ex boyfriend. Within minutes, Melissa’s camp attacked Mr Bowen with vile comments about his recent brain surgery. Bowen responded by wishing them well in their endeavors, maintaining his composure, never stooping to their level.

An inside source close to Mr. Bowen has advised that Mr. Bowen is being bombarded with requests to tell details of his and his family’s dealings with Melissa Marco Gorga and the Marco Family.

While initially resisting such requests, the inside source stated:

“Bro thought they were joking. Then her and her family started in on him opening their mouths. He’s not lookin’ to hurt her. But the truth is the truth and seems psycho forgot he knows it.”

When asked who “they” were, the inside source identified “they” as various media outlets that have already offered to provide Mr. Bowen with a platform to tell his story.  When asked to clarify who “psycho” was, the inside source responded “that’s Melissa Marco, she’s psycho girl. We used to call her fatal attraction girl”.

Mr. Bowen has revealed some of Melissa’s bizarre behavior during their relationship in recent tweets. He tweeted that his father threw Melissa out of their home after an 8 months stint when Melissa moved in to the Bowen family home. Donna Marco, Melissa’s mother immediately apologized to Bowen’s father so there was no need for police intervention.

Mr. Bowen detailed some of Melissa’s obsessive behavior indicating that Melissa went thru his parent’s mail, tried to hit him with a vehicle and would hide in the bushes.

Mr. Bowen further tweeted that one evening Melissa gave him an ultimatum or she “would marry the millionaire.” According to Mr. Bowen’s tweet, Melissa was married to Joey Gorga 3 months later.  Bowen also tweeted that Melissa continued to wear a cross pendant that he had purchased for her.  This puts a serious crimp in Melissa’s “love at first sight happily ever after” story.

It appears that Mr. Bowen has ignored Melissa’s sister’s telephone call to his friend and tweets requesting that he stop making public statements.

With the scintillating tidbits that Mr. Bowen has disclosed on twitter, it is no wonder that the media frenzy to get the details of the volatile Bowen / Melissa Macro relationship has begun.

Our inside source has indicated that Mr. Bowen is close to making a decision on the Media outlet that will get the REAL and UNCENSORED story regarding Real Housewife of New Jersey Melissa Marco Gorga.

As we sit and wait for the great reveal, we wonder how Melissa Marco is handling the unraveling of her most guarded secrets.

It appears that Melissa Marco is terribly concerned about what Bryan intends to say because she has vocalized her support for those posting the most vile attacks against him.

Our inside source has advised that Mr. Bowen is in the final stages of a deal with a media outlet for a tell all on all aspects of his relationship with Melissa Marco Gorga. Perhaps Missy shouldn’t have issued such a public challenge because it appears that her challenge will be met.

Sandy Relief: Time to Help JR’s Ocean Bar & Grill

The power of twitter has recently brought us someone from Melissa Gorga’s past, Bryan known as @bulldog_nj. Byran has been attacked, ridiculed and tormented by the Macro clan for just existing. His response to these unwarranted attacks has been to explain that he owns his past and he looks forward to his future.

Throughout the twitter storm, Bryan has asked for nothing. In fact, while being attacked, he mentioned that his friend JR’s Ocean Bar & Grill lost everything during Storm Sandy.

So while we may not be able to stop the attacks on Bryan, Faux Reality Entertainment wants to help in a constructive way. We have contacted JR’s Ocean Bar & Grill and seek to coordinate any assistance, financial or otherwise that we can provide. We ask our readers do the same. We will post the information as soon as we receive same from JR Ocean Bar & Grill, located in Seaside Heights, NJ.
