RHONJ News: Is Someone Feeding The Media Fraud Stories About Melissa & Joe Gorga?

In another installment of ‘Felons by Bravo,’ Real Housewives of New Jersey stars,  Melissa and Joe Gorga are in the felon hot seat this time.

According to a source of Star magazine:

“Joe and Melissa definitely have a bad reputation, and their credit history doesn’t track well. With their past legal troubles and current financial woes, no one can figure out who would be dumb enough to loan them money or what they did to get the loans. When Teresa and Joe started flaunting their money on the show,the Feds watched them very closely-and busted them. There’s no way they aren’t watching the Gorgas now.”

Now, I want to make this abundantly clear, especially to all you Trehuggers, Joe and Melissa Gorga have NOT been charged by the feds with any crime. NOT ONE! The above accusation is mere rumor not an official statement from the government. 

What I know of Melissa and Joe Gorga are, they pay their bills and are honest hard working people. And until fraud charges are officially filed against them, I won’t label them otherwise. 

Frankly, I doubt the validity of the “source.” This sounds like the handy work of Joe Gorga’s sister, Teresa Giudice. She can’t stand to be the only criminal in the bunch. *SIGH* Misery loves company!

Joe Gorga’s sister, Teresa Giudice and her nefarious hubby, Joe Giudice are they only couple on the RHONJ to hold the esteem title of CONVICTED FELONS! Both Joe and Teresa Giudice were convicted of felony fraud charges on March 4th for scamming banks and bankruptcy courts out of millions. The Guidice’s are awaiting sentencing on July 8th.

Teresa Giudice

This Star Magazine article will hit stands on May 12th. The story also mentions that the Gorgas have in $35,000 tax liens pending and $130,000+ in civil lawsuits.

    Wowzers, here we go!!!

    Gnomes!!!!

    • Birdie11

      With tropical savage tans.

      • Tigerlily

        Hi’ya Birdie.
        He’s not tan yet. Hmmmm maybe he should stop by ‘Sizzle’ Tanning Salon before he heads out to LA!

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Love the tan and really love juicy (I mean the gnome!!!)

          • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

            NAWS…now you have to apologize to all the “gnomes” in the world for that comment. Or else the media will jump your case for racism against gnomes, ay. Arn Arn Arn!

            P.S. Is there such a thing as a Guido Gnome??

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Only if it has no forehead to speak of. Hats don’t count!!! (females)

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Both Joes are Guido Gnomes, as far as I know!!!

      • Bryan

        I was going to say wouldn’t be SIZZLE TAN, the real true to life tan that all the GREASY NASTY JERSEY GUIDOS get!!!

        • Babson_Chick

          OH goodness, LOL.

  • noarguingwithstupid

    They are all beginning to look alike–gnomes!!

  • Sara

    I’m also having a hard time believing the Star Magazine source. Sounds like Melissa and Joey landed on someone’s shit list this week.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      I know Treape uses In Touch to put out her propoganda. What is Star Like?

      • Star is the same crap and I believe they are owned by the same company.

      • SAMRA1116

        Worse, but 50% or more, the story is true.

  • WestCoastFeed

    The blog that was created for the sole purpose of attacking the Gorgas once published a list of construction liens that had been filed over the years against Joe Gorga and his construction company. Many of the filing dates were very old. And they have probably all been paid.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Fairly common occurance in the construction industry. No Big Deal.

      • Vince Foster, Jr.

        Common when you don’t get paid. Good contractors not have liens filed against them.

    • Hi WCF…Are you referring to Star Magazine?

      • WestCoastFeed

        No, to famewhorgas

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      Maybe not, when a lien is paid, they file a discharge.

  • TartLemon

    Interesting these stories started coming out the moment Teresa’s attorneys put the kibosh on her public appearances. I mean, really, what’s she supposed to do with 2 months (until sentencing) of no ‘cash only/no receipts’ events curtailed? No more VIP concert tickets or trips to LA for Gia. Lots of expensive end of the school year events for the girls.

    HUGE fine to pay at sentencing, too. Plus routine living expenses (utilities, food, insurance, vehicles, all those phones with social media) on that faux manse. Add the city, state and Federal taxes continue no matter what.

    Buh-bye CONVICTED CRIMINAL.

    • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

      ITA. Heck, her extended family is going to go broke paying for both T&J’s mortgages AND the living expenses for all of the properties they “owe…I mean own”.
      I wonder how long it’s going to take for all of those “other” family members to get back on their feet after the T&J Fraudices drain them dry too.

  • Birdie11

    Who knows how true this is…however, while Star is labeled a tabloid…they have blown many stories wide open with on point reporting. The headlines are dramatic…but the core of the stories themselves are often true. Just saying.

  • SAMRA1116

    They said Joe n wife is heading in the same direction, as his sister. Melissa was never like, by Teresa’s fan n the hate she spread. Not my brothers wife – I don’t have to like her, but I’m not going to talk about her. Teresa is a jealous woman, period. That’s why she’s going to jail…

  • Babson_Chick

    This has come up before so am not sure at this point. Did their McMansion with the faux interior sell? Are they’re still renting somewhere? (because she wanted to get away from Teresa)

    • WestCoastFeed

      They are still renting in Franklin Lakes.

      • Babson_Chick

        OK – Thanks!

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      I don’t think that they had their closing yet. Something doesn’t smell right.

      • WestCoastFeed

        My guess is they are renting the McMansion on a least purchase plan.

      • Babson_Chick

        Interesting and I agree – can smell it clear down here!!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Melissa is going to be on Good Day, Philadelphia tomorrow, Perhaps she’ll be asked about this, But more likely she’ll be asked when the show is going to premiere.

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      When is she going to be on Good Day Camden?

      • WestCoastFeed

        Well, if the season is about to begin soon, that could be in the works now.

  • Babson_Chick

    O/T Word is coming out that Apollo pleads guilty – faces up to 30 yrs. and will pay restitution of $2.3 – $4.5 mill. we’ll see what else is being said and if this is true.

  • Bryan

    “We pay all our bills”

    • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

      Great likeness of these two!

      • Tigerlily

        Hi’ya Twits! Hope all is well with you! Happy Hump Day! Think maybe the artist was a little generous with the shading on Joe’s hair. LOL!
        Hey maybe they used the same pencil!
        Wasn’t that hilarious after the fight between the Joes at the retreat & everyone was covered in black schmutz & Joe Gorga was like…

        <('o'<)
        ^( ˚,˚ )^
        v(*.*)^
        Doody-doo-doo… I know nothing. (◐.̃◐) I see nothing. (◑.◑)

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Let’s just say it–Joe Gorga is going bald–He’s going to be a short, bald man!!!! (Not exactly Prince Charming!!) And if he is still supporting his scumbag sister, I feel sorry for him!!

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Joe Gorga is a muscular Gnome!!! Juicy is a fat sloppy gnome!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Teresa Giudice ‏@Teresa_Giudice_ 12m

    • noarguingwithstupid

      LOLFOFPIMP!!!!!!! Hilarious!!! Just Hilarious!!!!!!

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      Help me Clarence

      • WestCoastFeed

        Vince, I am beginning to believe you are as old as I am. But then I remember that movie is now a Christmas staple.

  • Julie

    these rumors are old. If you look back to 2011 the same rumors as were about Teresa were Mel & Joe. this site seems to like Mel & Joe, I cant stan them just as I cant stand Teresa & Joe. guidices would neer got caught if they had not filed for bankruptcy. joey G learned from Joe. G. Go figure. this has greek written all over it.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Or perhaps it is Teresa’s doing. ROL recently had a story that said that Tre had not changed and was still the same mean, vindictive woman. Just that she had learned how to hide her part in the vindictive attacks better.

      • Julie

        no, the greeks are beoke if you happen to know who i am talking about.

        • Julie

          broke I meant to say. sorrry, my key pad really sucks.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Yes, I know who the Greeks are. And I know they are penniless. No pun intended.

    • Maybe…..I think Teresa is behind this story. It just reeks of her handy work.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Or Milania!!!!

  • Julie

    i hate this keypad.

        Mini Teresa? Audriana poses just like her mother! LOL! Not sure if that is good or bad…

        • WestCoastFeed

          Looks like Sheila Giudice just went to Macy’s to get her little girl’s dress. But Teresa had to get a custom-made dress for Milania that probably cost a fortune

          • Tigerlily

            West, ITA. I think we all know that. She will be spending beaucoup bucks for sure. our bucks! Surprised she didn’t go to Sondra Celli for it.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            A custom made Communion dress is a first for me. I am so not impressed.

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Hey, Tiger!!!! Only Treape would find a way to ruin a Holy Communion Dress for a child!!!

          • Tigerlily

            Hi Naws! Happy Hump Day! ITA. Only Tre could take something steeped in Religious tradition, turn it into a fashion show, make it all about her & have it be an absolute spectacle. Even the Traveler’s have more class. Hmmm, maybe not , but they at least OWN it! LOL!

            I was thinking, since Tre claims to be such a good ‘Catholic’ girl, lets ask her to explain what the meaning & purpose behind making your “First Holy Communion” is. Hah! Who am I kidding!?!?!

          • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

            Hey, wait a second…Little Joe likes to “dress” it up. Maybe Joe Gorga should go to Sondra Celli to get a dress made for his next appearance.

            Ooooo, sorry, that was a bit low of me…but a fun thought…picture it…Joey all Sondra Celli’d out.

          • Tigerlily

            Bwha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha. Like the ‘Mini-Me’ version of the “Rock”, Dwayne Johnson from the movie “Tooth Fairy”!!!

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I am still laughing at what you said yesterday about the wine and getting wings!!! You have really tickled my funny bone–Thank you, West!!

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Audriana is going to be a beauty!!!

      • Vince Foster, Jr.

        Looks like two men to me

        • Tigerlily

          Well the one on the right is definitely prettier, imo Vince.
          You saw her up close Vince. Question, is she honestly apricot colored like most of her pics?

          • Vince Foster, Jr.

            I would call it copper color

          • Tigerlily

            LOL! Hmmm, copper? Does that clash with beige? Maybe we should consult Leopard boy!

          • Vince Foster, Jr.

            He is busy looking for other Trehuggers on Grindr

          • Tigerlily

            & BOOM there it is!
            LOLOLOL!

          • Vince Foster, Jr.

            If Leopard Kitty was on a lifeboat with Cher, Teresa, and Liza and had to throw someone off, who would she choose? Inquiring minds want to know.

          • Tigerlily

            Wow Vince. I’m stymied! What do you think?
            I know!
            He’d throw himself overboard to save his idols.
            Fall on his sword so to speak. A self-sacrifice maybe? Idk. I’m really stumped! LOL

          • Vince Foster, Jr.

            I don’t know either. What if we add a lamb to the lifeboat, would that help?

          • Tigerlily

            FOTFLOL! 😀

          • Vince Foster, Jr.

            Would a jar of vaseline in the lifeboat make your decision easier?

          • Vince Foster, Jr.

            Heck, Tiger, let’s make it a little harder (no pun intended). What if this was in the lifeboat?

            OMG, that looks just like Johnny the Greek!

          • Tigerlily

            Wow Vince what a conundrum. Hmmmm… I say he picks Tre, the lamb & the doll. No need for the vaseline cause I kinda get the feeling he could be a “Eat Me-Beat Me” / “I’ve been a very bad boy Mommy” type. LOL!

    • frankswif3y

      OMG STOP!!!! Is this real? Too funny!!!! Aaahhhhaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • WestCoastFeed

        Hi, Franks. It’s a new parody account. She is very funny!!

        • frankswif3y

          Lol. I have to start following her. Thanks WCF!

          • Vince Foster, Jr.

            I just noticed that Kim D was following the parody account. Odd.

          • frankswif3y

            She’s probably following to spy for Tre. Teresa is probably trying to get it shut down.

    Call me when the feds have a case on the gorgas in the mean time

    THE BANSHEE got 62 days to wear the fugly tan fake extension and eyelashes

  • frankswif3y

    The source is obviously Teresa’s PR. Probably Teresa herself! LOL! Being in debt or having a tax lein doesn’t make you a criminal….forging signatures to obtain loans, creating fake tax returns, paystubs and scamming people and the government out of money DOES!

    • BOOM!! Tell it, Franks!

      • frankswif3y

        Hey Doc did u see Dina and Danielle’s tweet battle?! Danielle has apparently turned on Tre too. You have to check it out.

        • Hi Franks! I saw it but it’s such old news (to me). Everybody knows the truth behind Dina leaving RHONJ. Dina is such a liar and I’m glad Danielle is calling her out AGAIN. I can’t stand the Dina. You remember we chatted about this endlessly on the “other” site.

  • Vince Foster, Jr.

    I have a question, if M&G actually sold their house for full listing price last summer, why hasn’t it closed yet? Are the monies being delivered by mules trekking over the Rockies?

    • WestCoastFeed

      My guess is that it was a lease-purchase plan.

      • Vince Foster, Jr.

        If that is true, that would be the only reason they got “full price.” I guess any rent paid would come off the listing price. Maybe it is an option? Melissa has been known to bend the truth as to her book reviews.

    • I’ll tell ya one thing, Mel and Joe’s house looks 10x better than TreApe’s.

  • WestCoastFeed
