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”:

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