|John and Penny Karagiorgis|
When you mess with peoples livelihood, they tend to come out with guns blazing and are willing to spill everything that you are hiding. This is why John and Penny along with Kim D agreed to "set Melissa up" at the Fashion Show.
Melissa used to be a frequent customer of Chateau Allure Salon when it was owned by a former "man friend" of hers. His name is Robert, and he made two purchases that still hang off her chest. She and her bridal party had their hair/make-up done there before she married Joe. Before Melissa was on the show she used to tell those stylists: "I can't stand that bitch (Teresa). I am going to get on that show one way or another and destroy her." Several of the stylists still work for Penny. Melissa has been bragging about Penny not being shown in the Finale Episodes saying: "I got that bitch edited out." Melissa and producer Cat Rodriguez are very close, they tweet each other all the time.
It is true that Penny has since closed the salon at the location that was shown on The Real Housewives of New Jersey and new location is currently being renovated. Will be opening soon Be on the look out for that!

Was Melissa always so superficial and materialistic? O, YEAH! She was envious of what everyone else had. She lived out of a "friend's" closet for about six years. Borrowing clothes, shoes, whatever she could get her hands on. Maybe that's the reason she felt the need to shoplift while living in Florida (Charges and the warrant have since been dismissed). She was envious of everyone and didn't have any friends with designer duds to borrow, so instead she just attempted to steal them.
Her mother didn't help the cause either. A man allegedly showed up at Melissa's mother, Donna's, home to pick Melissa up for a date in a brand new Toyota 4-Runner, still had the temporary tags on it. Her mother told her, "I think you should date the other guy, his car was nicer."
Was Melissa ever a dancer?Angelo has no reason to lie. She was well known at Lookers. She was also well known for a girl who gave "extras" for her alleged "partying", clothes, breasts, jewelry. You name it. She probably got from being on her knees. And Lookers was NEVER owned by a member of Melissa's family. Not a cousin, uncle or any relative of hers. It is still open and owned by the original owner. People that John knows very well.
Now let's be clear; no one is saying stripping is bad or you're a bad person if that's how you chose to pay your bills. But why lie about it? Own it and move on.

Why are Joe and Melissa really selling their house? John doesn't know the exact numbers in their bank accounts nor does he care to know. But allegedly the Gorga's power was shut off a couple of weeks ago. And as the guy was there turning the power off Joe tried to use his "I am a celebrity card'. The guy didn't want to hear it, he was just there to do a his job. Joe is also allegedly borrowing a lot of money from a lot of people. He pays some of his debtors on a weekly basis. Missy proclaimed “At Least We Pay Our Bills” [except for a pesky foreclosure. and the sub contractors. and the service providers]
I asked John if he thought Melissa was outspending what he is able to bring in on a monthly basis. He said he could not comment on it because he doesn't know or care to know what they have in their bank accounts. I stated that I believe that when they first got together Joe probably showered her with gifts, dinners, whatever she wanted. And now in her quest to be famous and "take down Teresa", she has probably spent him into the poor house.
John added, and a lot of aggravation and a lot of stress. I actually feel bad for the guy, he's a worker.
On Joe and Teresa repairing their relationship:
I (Me - Housewives Blog) honestly believe that if Joe and Teresa had time to talk and be around each other without Melissa being there they would be able to repair their relationship without Melissa interfering.
John on Melissa at the Reunion and her smugness and comments to Teresa:She said "Teresa look at me I am done with you and you're done with my kids". To me you are nothing but a piece of shit. You want nothing to do with her, fine. But don't take away your husband's kids, who happen to be her nephews and niece, and say that my kids are done with you to. That right there tells me you are nothing but a malicious, vindictive, arrogant, egotistical & envious bitch; because she is using her kids as weapons. In that statement right there I felt for Joe. I looked at the TV and said that this guy has it bad.
|I don't think it was lies, I think it was from the heart and Melissa |
knows that. And it "hit to close to home for her".
John: If I actually had Joe's number I would call him up and say you know what bro, you got it bad, whatever it is, it is. I felt for the guy. When I saw her use her kids as pawns in that vindictive manner, the way she did, I felt for the guy, I really did. I whole-heartedly felt for the guy. You don't use your children as pawns. If you use your children in that way, you are a piece of shit. That's your husband's family.
Me: When Joe said at the reunion, "My children don't have grandparents because of you." That is probably something that Melissa has said to Joe.
John: After seeing that, I believe it. I think she has literally brainwashed him and as a hard working family man, he doesn't deserve that. I can understand Joe. We both come from traditional families with strict values and expectations. We are family men and will do anything for their happiness.
|Definitely done something to her nose.|
John: O, yeah, she's had a nose job. If you look at her old pictures you can see that it was contoured or reduced.
Who Set Melissa up at the Fashion Show? John put his good friend Angelo up to it because Melissa was bashing Penny's salon & other friend's businesses.
Does he have any idea who Jacqueline was texting during the Fashion Show? Jacqueline was probably texting with Caroline and Lauren because they didn't want to say anything aloud because they were mic'd .
What was Teresa's involvement in the set-up? She had no friggin' idea what was about to happen. She didn't know a damn thing. She didn't know about Angelo. If she did know anything it was that Melissa was going to be the target and that was it. Because she was bad-mouthing Kim's store and Penny's salon. She didn't know that me and Penny brought Angelo, she didn't know that Angelo was Melissa's manager when she danced. She had no idea what was going to happen. Its a shame this whole time Teresa was taking the blame because, unlike Jacqueline, we honored our confidentiality agreement. You know if you play with people's businesses, karma's is bitch.
Me: I think if you open your eyes and look past taking sides, that you could see that in that moment Teresa's anxiety was very real as is her pain now because she doesn't speak to her brother And you could tell that way with the way Melissa sits there like she is bored unless the conversation is about her that she doesn't care. She doesn't care that Joe doesn't have his family, that her kids don't have their cousins, because she is getting what she wants.
John: Look at all her pics, she is keeping her kids around her family.
Me: I don't know those people. But, Lysa Simpson has blocked me on Twitter because I see through the bullshit and don't buy everything Melissa says.
John: From whats been said, Lysa and Kim (Pirrella) have been trying to get on the show forever and they (Bravo) won't even pay attention to them. Kim, Lysa and Melissa are all part of the same tree. Lysa and Kim go to my friends club, go in the back, and get happy as hell and come back out. I have never met them, and I have no desire to meet them. My married friends have told me that Kim and Lysa have hit on them at a party in front of their wives.
So now that Melissa knows the truth, that Teresa didn't set her up, why do you think she isn't speaking to her? She will never agree to that because she will never look at the truth so she has that edge against her and so she has that control over Joe.
I have a feeling in the next season Melissa is going to get what's coming to her? Of course she is. When people are coming forward and say "you're gonna deny, this or that? You're going to tell me I didn't buy you those because you did this for me?" Really?!?! Melissa is going to get what is coming to her. She had her make-up artist attack my wife calling her a "coke-whore" and she looks like a "crack-ho" (For the record Penny has never touched a drug in her life.) Do you really want to go down that road with me? Do you really want to know who the coke whore was? Do you really want to know who it was that sucked guys off to accommodate their habits for free, free nights at shore houses, or for other free shit? I will only warn once and our friends are all ready to come forward when I ask them to.
Does John feel bad about exposing Melissa? Not at all. Did Melissa feel bad when she was bad-mouthing Penny's shop? Absolutely Not. Penny had her whole crew there at the Fashion Show and they all spoke on camera and they got edited out. Until you come out and apologize to everyone you've wronged nothing is to stop this tidal wave and it is going to hit like tsunami.
If Joe knew half of the truth of not only before marriage but during their marriage.
He would cry. - Penny
Me: I don't wish Joe anymore pain he's been through a enough. But, I think he's gonna have to hurt to see through her bullshit.
John: He deserves the truth and should have shut his mouth and listen to what his sister had to say. We know of many people who would go public and speak on camera with explicit info that would expose the truth. Enough is enough. They've bashed businesses, attacked on twitter with troll accounts, had their employees attack, and had others on twitter come after us. We've received threatening phone calls and every time I invite them to step up or shut up. Still never confronted.
Me: I don't want him to hurt anymore, but I think he has to hurt and see the truth.
John: Sometimes truth comes with pain. The good thing about pain is, it let's you know you have the strength to overcome it.
Does Melissa still see other men inside her marriage? His friend saw her a little over four years ago. And he happens to be her ex-boyfriend.
Me: So they were...
John: Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang
Me: So there is a rumor that Joey might not be Joe's.
John: I can't speak to that. I don't know. I do know, that I was told by a friend of mine that he was with her a little over four years ago.
Me: Was Joe out of town or ....
John: No, just because she called him up. Also happens to be the person she lived with for a few years.
Me: Is this the sushi restaurant guy we've heard about?
John: Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! He goes by "Bulldog". He was training to be an Ultimate Fighter but their "partying" habits ruined it. He even jokes about it: says if he knew she was going to get on the show he would have recorded the last few times he was with her.
Me: What's his beef with her?
John: She acts like he doesn't even exist anymore because she is "famous" now. She does that to everyone she knows.
So there you have it.
