Victoria Gotti Exposes How MotherF*ckerGate Got On The RHONJ

Posted on Nov 11 2014 - 9:33am by BeachSpin

Victoria Gotti

The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” finally wraps tonight with the final part of the reunion plunking the cherry on top of a season that has been part snoozy, part scandalous, and part shady. The one glaring morsel of remaining unfinished business is clearing up a little ditty affectionately known as Motherf*ckergate.

We all know by now how this supposed rumor was revealed on the show…with Victoria Gotti sharing the dirty info with Teresa and Amber, Teresa dishing the dirt with Dina, Dina spilling the tea back on the twins, then everyone in New Jersey blaming Teresa for choosing to  confide in someone so drab to begin with. Victoria Gotti appeared on the Wendy Williams Show yesterday, and uncovered how the whole seedy fiasco began. She frightened me a little with her quasi Catwoman ensemble and butt length frayed yellow hair, but I do admit I was interested in what she was going to spill. The key point that Gotti revealed was that this bombshell was absolutely premeditated….lucky for us it dropped just in time to save the most mundane season to date.

“The rumor was basically that Rino had had an affair with his mother-in-law because this is something he said sometime back…it gets discussed way before we shoot this, by the way.  It’s brought to me months an months before this show.  I had heard it from him.”

Rino Aprea was married, separated, and remarried to Teresssa, with the alleged affair supposedly playing a key role in their marital problems. Gotti explained that the pivotal conversation evolved when a post appearance dinner date with Teresa ended up at her house. The telling exchange was instigated, and the rest is Housewives history. She also shared that she was not paid to appear on the show, and later passed a lie detector test, verifying her story.

My guess is that Teresa leaked the dirt to Bravo, and Gotti was hunted down to take part in the big reveal. Gotti’s TV special premiered last night, and her cooperation would have revived public interest, and breathed new life into her outdated and forgotten reality. It was a win win for all involved, except for maybe the key players involved in the scandal. As we leave New Jersey in the dust tonight, let’s hope that some candid truth and closure is kicked up in our tracks.

  • Vince Foster, Jr.

    As someone said before, Teresa is trying to deflect from her crimes.

    • nan/4

      I have to agree with you Vince. This whole new group (Teresa, Nicole, Bobby, Amber, Jim) were all brought on to take the emphasis off of Tre and Joe, and only show them being WONDERFUL PARENTS to their four beautiful daughters. I guess they thought that it would affect their sentencing, but it didn’t work!

      Happy Veterans Day! Let us all remember the men and women who have so bravely fought for the safety and well-being of our country. They are all heroes.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Hi, Nan and Vince. I agree with you both. It was an effort to distract from Tre. Happy Vets Day.

        • Birdie11

          WCF!!! NICE to see you!!

        • nan/4

          WestCoastFeed!!!!! How the heck are you honey??? I’m SO HAPPY to see you posting again. I missed you, and hope that you’re back to stay!!! 🙂

        • Yeah!!!!! welcome back my lovely friend. Your presence was MISSED. Glad you’re back. 🙂

          • WestCoastFeed

            I am still just trying to type on my kindle. It is frustratingly slow.

          • nan/4

            But it’s working and that’s all that matters!!!!

          • Oh I see. Hang in there until you get your new laptop. It’s nice seeing you tho.

        • Yolie

          Agreed and Teeerresssa makes this point in part 3 of the reunion.

          • nan/4

            Yeah. I’m so looking forward to Tre saying “This is probably, maybe, could be, I’m not quite sure yet, who knows?…..my last reunion.” hehe

          • Pinky Pie

            I’m so happy to see you again. You bring sunshine to the comment board! All smiles!

          • nan/4

            Hiya Pinky Pie! It’s so great to see you again! How have you been my dear?

            P.S. I want to thank-you for caring about me. You’re a very special lady, and I think the world of you! 🙂

          • Pinky Pie

            And I of you Nan. I’m pretty good. The newest dr. Was checking my lungs and heart. I was having problems breathing. I was really laughing when they did one of the tests, as I kept thinking someone was knocking on the exam room door. I asked the dr. And he said it was my heart. Next thing I knew, it sounded like someone was playing a snare drum. My heart again! I laughed so hard, and thought, wow! Am I lucky?! I have a happy little heart. 🙂 I must say though, I never have been a good dancer, but I always want to dance. It must be my heart…rhythm. I finally know I have some.

          • nan/4

            LOLOLLL! That’s funny, but what’s with your heart? Did they find out why you are having trouble breathing? Now you have me worried! What did the doctor say?

            I’m slowly regaining my strength, both physically and emotionally.Thanks Pinky!

          • nan/4

            Where did you go Pinky Pie????

            No problemo. I can wait. 😉

          • Pinky Pie

            Oh, sorry, Nan, I didn’t mean to,leave our conversation hanging. No heart problems. I’ve had a “spot on my lungs for nearly 2 years. It hasn’t grown, and they are watching it. I never thought I had a heart problem, and I didn’t. They think I can’t breath because a simple thing called asthma. 🙂 I mean, I know there are people that really struggle with that disease, but mine is here for 15 minutes, then gone. Because the doctor’s are watching me so closely, and because the type if cancer that I’ve had grows on the end of a nerve. So, I’m constantly “watched” apparently, you’re talking to the big lottery winner. My special nemesis only bothers 200 other people in the world. (Wonder how they got their numbers?) anyway, because of the way this stuff moves, if I say ouch, I have to have 5 billion tests. I try not to ever say ouch, because hospitals scare me. I am phobic. The only way for me to go in is with humor. They gave me a whopping cough vaccination this time. I told them, “we will make the evening news, and you will get hazard pay.” My plan was to take off running, they weren’t suppose to capture me until we got to the parking lot and the choppers were circling over head. 🙂 seriously, I use to be really phobic, now I try to laugh it all off. Laugh with me.

          • nan/4

            I am laughing with you! Run Pinky RUN!!!!! LOL!!! Well, there is an upside to all of this. They are watching you very carefully, and as annoying as that may seem, they are being vigilant so if God forbid anything were to show up, they would be right on it!

            Only 200 cases? Wow. That’s so few! I’m so happy that they are giving you the attention that you deserve. With Danny, who had testicular cancer, there is very little money spent on research because it is considered a “small” cancer. That infuriates me!

            As long as I know that you’re doing well, and are being well taken care of, then I’m happy Pinky. 🙂

          • nan/4

            Paging Pinky! Pinky, please report to the board. LOL! 🙂

          • Pinky Pie

            Why are you going to give me a PETSCAN? Because, currently, all I have is a goldfish. So if it is a bring your own pet, I may be sunk!

          • Pinky Pie

            I will run, Nan. See Pinky Run, Run Pinky.:) I don’t understand that about Danny’s nasty nemesis. I would have thought it would have gotten more attention. I’m shocked by that fact. How old was your Danny? I hope my questions aren’t painful. I just want you to know if you need to tell me about him, I’m here and I promise to listen. Xox!

          • nan/4

            Aww….you are so sweet. Danny was 19 when he was diagnosed, and 20 when he passed away. There are only 8000 cases a year, and 95% of the young men with TC survive. Danny had the form of the disease that is virtually incurable. He was in the very unlucky 5%. But he fought it with such a wonderful attitude. He never lost his sense of humor, and he was so brave, Pinky. Here is a picture of my wonderful son….

            I miss him with every beat of my heart.

          • Pinky Pie

            I believe you do miss him, Nan. I’m truly sorry for your lose. You have my deepest sympathy. I’ll bet he was a wonderful young man. Full of fun, and smart like his mom.

          • nan/4

            Thank you so much sweetheart.

          • Pinky Pie

            You’re so welcome. I can’t imagine the hell you have been through. Xox

          • nan/4

            Yeah, we both have Pinky. That’s why I feel a very strong bond with you.

          • Pinky Pie

            Oh, Nan, sweetheart, you’ve been through so much more than I have. I think it is harder to watch someone you live be ill, than to fight the battle. I really don’t know how you do it. I admire your strength. Xox!

          • nan/4

            We both have Pinky, but yes, the pain is immeasureable. My strength? I was strong for him till the end, but fell completely apart after he died. Oh well. We will talk soon through email about this kind of private stuff! YAY! 🙂

          • Pinky Pie

            I didn’t get the photo for some reason.

          • nan/4

            Refresh the page?

          • nan/4

            Can you see it yet?

          • Pinky Pie

            Holy smokes what a good looking kid! He looks like he was a really fun guy. You did a good job Nan. Was he funny?

          • nan/4

            Very funny, and very charming too! The ladies loved him! He was quite a guy. It’s just not fair, you know?

          • Pinky Pie

            Not fair at all. Not in any way shape or form. It is anger inducing as to how unfair it is. You’re 100% correct. No rhyme or reason can explain it. I hope we understand it better in the afterlife.

          • Pinky Pie

            And, I really do believe that one day we do see our loved ones again. Xox

          • nan/4

            I hope you’re right my friend!

          • Pinky Pie

            I’m sure the ladybugs all loved him. He was adorable. Holy smokes what a cutie. So, how many angel babes do you think he has following him around in heaven?

          • nan/4

            Lots and lots, I’m sure! 😉 Yeah, he was kind of cute, but then again, I’m a wee bit partial……

          • Pinky Pie

            Well. I’m looking with clear eyes, and is see what you see! Xox! He better get it all out of his system before his mom shows up. Which, I hope gives him a long time to get it out of his system. And, Nan, you will see him again. I actually believe he is around watching over you. He is your personal angel. Xox. I’m not joking, I really do believe it.

          • nan/4

            If I could give you a great big hug now, I would. Thank-you so much sweetheart! You’re the BEST!

          • nan/4

            You know Pinky, if you are ever interested in sharing email addresses so we can talk privately, the moderator can provide us with one another’s addresses. No pressure at all though Pinky!!! It was just a thought sweetie. 🙂

          • Pinky Pie

            I would love to share email address, but am unclear how to do that.

          • nan/4

            I’ll try to reach the moderator, and have them get back to you as well. Sound good?

          • Pinky Pie

            Yes! I’d like that!

          • nan/4

            GREAT!!!!!! I’m doing a happy dance!!!!

          • nan/4

            I just tried to email you Pinky! I hope it went through!!!!! 🙂

          • Awww Nan. Danny spirit lives on. What a handsome young man.

          • nan/4

            Thanks Doc. I do feel him around me from time to time.

            You’re very kind.
            xoxo

          • Pinky Pie

            How about you, dear Nan, how are you!

    • Chloe

      Bingo. Teresa brought the rumor to Bravo to deflect from her legal mess.

  • Yolie

    The blonde hair looks so tacky. She needs one of Wendy’s wigs.

    • BeachSpin

      Ew, her hair is seriously beyond disturbing. NeNe’s wigs would look better.

      • nan/4

        But only slightly……LOL!

        Morning Beach Spin. Hope all is well. 🙂

        • Yolie

          Ditto on that lol.

          • nan/4

            LOL! Hi Yolie. It’s so nice to meet you. 🙂

          • Yolie

            Thanks and nice to meet you. Everyone is very inviting here.

      • Yolie

        That’s the scary part.

  • Nene robs kids

    No doubt for me Teresa brought this to Bravo to deflect from her legal woes

    • Gabby

      She’s proved over time that she’s willing to throw anyone under the bus, even her OWN family, so I’m not at all surprised by this.

  • September24

    I don’t think Tre brought it to the show. I think Rino shot off his big mouth to the producers that he knew Victoria Gotti! And the producers contacted her for her side of knowing him. And the rest is history…….

    • Yolie

      That’s a good possibility since he’s so desperate to be mob connected.

  • nan/4

    All of her sons live on the “compound.” That has an eerie sound to it to me!

    • nan/4

      Guess it’s just me. Neverrrrmiiind! LOL!

      • I’m here but all over the place today. How are you?

        • nan/4

          Good thanks. And you? Hope all is well there.

          I’m looking forward to the final reunion tonight! Should be tons ‘o fun!!! lol 😉

          • Me too! Can’t wait, should be real intense seeing Tre act like she’s at her last supper. Are you ready for Thanksgiving? Do you usually do the cooking?

          • nan/4

            I usually do, but my son and DIL are coming in, and since I’m not 100% yet, we will be going to one of the casinos here for a FEAST! Yummy! 😉

            You cooking this year?

          • Aw, I wish I could join you. While I love to cook, I’m just not in the spirit/mood this year (not sure why). I want to go to a nice restaurant but all the really nice ones will be closed. My little Suessies like helping mommy cook so I’ll be doing it.

          • nan/4

            Aww, I know what you mean when you say that you just don’t feel up to it, but with your family pitching in, I’ll bet it will be fun!

            Yes! I wish that you could join us too!!!!

          • Thanks Nan. I hope my spirits pick up between now and now. I do enjoy shopping for my “ingredinces” at Whole Foods. That’s my fav store, btw. LOL!

          • nan/4

            LOL!!!! You have something in common with TRE!!!!! Yup, you just have to have the right ingredinces! OY! I LOVE Whole Foods too!!! And Trader Joe’s.

          • Raine Woman

            Hiya Lefty!!!!

            Sorry, I’m just drive-by commenting on a quick break and wanted to say Hi. So nice to see you posting! Keep that chin up, you have lots of people cheering you on! 🙂

          • nan/4

            RAINEY!!!!! I have been so worried about you! How are you sweetheart? I’ve missed you SO MUCH! Come back and play with me! Pweeezzze? 😉

            Love ya’!
            xo

          • Raine Woman

            You’re so sweet!! I’m fine, just busy working. Someone has to pay Uncle Sam, half of Bravo doesn’t.

            How’s the arm? And everything else? You doing okay?

          • Raine Woman

            What up, DOC! A blue Seuss is not good! Does “54 days and counting” help?

          • Pinky Pie

            How nice for you that they help. I wish I could accept help, but it always makes me nervous. It must be my control freak that comes out to play. So, tell me, I really want to know, do they say what they want to do, or do you ask? I just really wish I could just let go. You have my complete admiration.

          • Pinky Pie

            Oh, Nan, your talking my language! Last year we went to the Winn Buffet in L.V. Let me know where you end up for dinner. I can’t wait to hear about it. Last year was our first year out with no children. They are all grown up. We had so much fun. It will be stress free for you. I hope you really enjoy yourself.

          • nan/4

            Oh my. The Wynn is very fancy. I love it there! We live very close to The Red Rock Casino. It’s off the strip, but it so beautiful! Oh Pinky, we have a guest room with your name on it the next time you’re in town!!!!! It would be so nice to meet you!

    • RealitytvJunkie

      How is she still affording the compound is my question. Her house was in foreclosure a few times. I wonder how she’s still surviving.

      • nan/4

        That’s a VERY good question Reality!

        Good to see you, btw. 🙂

    • Chloe

      Lol, it sounds mafia like.

      • nan/4

        Me too Chloe! Or some kind of a cult!

        I hope that you’re having a nice day today. 🙂

        • Chloe

          Yes, it’s creepy. Thanks Nan. You have a great day.

          • nan/4

            TY. 🙂

  • WestCoastFeed

    I watched a bit of the Show last night . It seemed to just be a little modern commentary about a number of old clips from her show.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Hi WestCoastFeed. Nice to see you posting again. Hope you’re feeling better. I watched the show also and was disappointed because it was what you mentioned, old clips and commentary. Frankie never came out of his room. I thought that was very immature.

  • Chloe

    On the show, when Victoria shows up to Teresa’s Fabellini event, she says that she heard about the appearance on the radio and decided to show up, not that Teresa invited her. This show is so fake.

    • Gabby

      Lol that sounded so fake, I just laughed out loud. Teresa knew what they were about to discuss. Sad!

  • itsjustme

    I saw Victoria on Wendy’s show yesterday. I am POSITIVE Teresa told the powers that be about Rino. I’m sure Teresa told Victoria who the new people were and that Victoria told Tre how she knew Rino years ago and what he supposedly told her.
    I still don’t believe the whole thing. They all look too comfortable in each others company to have had that kind of scandalous act happen in that family.

    • nan/4

      Hello again my friend! I totally agree with you. Everything you wrote.

      Have a good day! 😉

    • BINGO!!!! You NAILED it. That’s been my theory too and the one that makes the most sense imo! 🙂

      Hope you’re having a good day.

  • Shelly Jones

    C’mon….I don’t think Teresa has the capacity to come up with a master plan to deflect from her legal stuff. Sorry

    • Pinky Pie

      I think deflecting is one of Teresa Giudice’s strongest skills. She is a master at it.

      • She even says in the preview video, I don’t want the attention proving she was trying to take the heat off of her.

    • Teresa says it in the video that she doesn’t want the attention on her. And “deflecting” is her middle name. She’s done it for 6 seasons now.

      • nan/4

        Yup and yup. ITA!

  • Dave

    Finally the truth is coming out about this ridiculous rumor and storyline. Just when you think Bravo can’t sink any lower, they go and seek Victoria Gotti out.

  • Nene robs kids

    I would love to see ANY of the RHONJ take on Victoria face to face

  • Gabby

    Ok, so wait a minute…is she implying that she discussed this with Teresa weeks or months before filming and T’s reaction was fake? I’m pretty sure Amber knew nothing but Teresa has been faking not knowing this entire season? LMAO!

  • Get out

    What’s the deal with Victoria only wearing white or black? Pick a color Victoria, it will help you not look like a walking corpse. Had it not been for sub-titles, I would have never known what the boys were saying.
    Of course Teresa knew, I knew she was being shady when she was almost jumping out of her skin till she brought up to Ambur (I just love the way Victoria says it) that Victoria knows Rino – opening the door for Motherfucker Gate to come out.

  • She Stinks!

    VG’s weave is ridiculous. Its not for an old woman, but for a 20 year old stripper or porn star.

    • Pinky Pie

      Didn’t it look really cheap, as well? I thought it looked like an old dirty wig that children had played dress up in at school. Like dragged around, stomped on, maybe a bike rode over it. It just looked really bad. And, the color was really cheap looking. The color combined with the color of her skin. Awful!

      • She Stinks!

        Yes! It looked like Mama Joyce dragged it thru the streets like an old tacky rag! lol

        • Pinky Pie

          I think all the housewives look so much older with their long haired weaves. It seems like they are trying too hard to look like teenagers and just end up making themselves look older than they actually are.

        • Ahahahahahaha!!!!

  • Gabby

    Ummmm…”the compound?”

    • nan/4

      I know, creepy, huh?

      Hi Gabby! Hope that you’re having a very nice day. 😉

      • Gabby

        And Wendy even acts like it’s nothing out of the ordinary lol. WTF?

        Yes, I’m doing well, thank you for asking. Hope you’re the same! ♥

  • Gabby

    I wonder if Teresa knew Victoria was about to rat her out? lol

    • I wonder if Tre even understands she’s been ratted out. The forehead is incredibly dense.

  • nan/4

    OT: You’ve got mail Pinky! 🙂

  • TartLemon

    If it comes out of Teresa’s mouth, it’s a lie. Even her good friend Victoria verifies Teresa is a liar.

  • getreal

    Gotti said on the WW show that the reason she appeared on the HWONJ episode was because TERESA CALLED HER … you know, just like how Teresa just happened to be present for all the trash talk about Melissa … she was the instigator then and now.

  • Norrth

    I guess Teresa’s innocence is nonexistent if Gotti is telling the truth. The twins took a lot of flack and they were right all along. They knew Teresa set them up. I can’t stand the sound of their voices, but they were the only people truly being themselves, in my book. I’m so sorry that between Gotti, Teresa and the Marcheses they were tortured by having their mother thrown under a bus. That was the sleaziest thing I’ve seen from a HW show. I guess teresa thought it would take the focus off of her legal issues.

    • dj j

      0h come on! If this really happened to someone you know, everyone would talk about it. It is disgusting her mother did that to her own daughter. I don’t know how they get to turn it on Teresa just for telling one person. People don’t want to believe this stuff happens in families, but yes, it does.

  • Lisa Pat

    I believe the Don’s daughter.. she doesnt exactly need money! I believe it 100% and it explains the divorce.. and let’s be honest, if the mom is anything like the twins, it isnt exactly hard to believe. Rino is supposedly a “Don Juan” although I don’t see it (cough). The Mom was lonely, her husband was locked up and this was 20 years ago.. the Mom would have only been 51 then and she’s hot now!! So I think it’s very possible this happened. Rino would bang anything, according to his own wife. So, not hard for me to believe that he banged a woman who looks exactly like his wife.

    • fred

      she is NOT hot now

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    I agree Beach Spin – Teresa knows how to keep Bravo happy and used the same tactic as she used in previous seasons filming with Angelo and Penny. She doesn’t care who she hurts as long as it secures her place on the show. She seems to have no comprehension of the fall out from these rumors.

  • Jersey

    Interesting. . . . So Teresa is not as innocent as I thought she was in this situation. I’m not a fan of Teresa but I believed that she was innocent and thought the twins were going after the wrong person.. I now see why they went after her.. She’s horrible.
