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.
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.
