Melissa Gorga: Stripper or Bartender? Exclusive Interview With Her Ex Manager!

I had the opportunity to get in contact with Angelo Vrohidis. Angelo was the general manager at “Lookers” for over 13 years. Lookers is a Gentlemen’s club that Melissa Gorga was rumored to be dancing at. Melissa Gorga immediately shut down those rumors and claimed she was a bartender there for a short period of time. I thought I should investigate this and see what really happened…

AllAboutTRH: Was Melissa Gorga a dancer at Lookers, or a bartender like she claims?
Vrohidis: She was a dancer.
AllAboutTRH: How long did she dance for?
Vrohidis: It was less than a year
AllAboutTRH: So you attended the fashion show?
Vrohidis: Correct
AllAboutTRH: Did Teresa Giudice contact you to attend the fashion show?
Vrohidis: No.
AllAboutTRH: So is it true that you went up to Melissa and as soon as she saw you, she ran to the bathroom?
Vrohidis: No, actually, I was at the bar talking to some friends because a lot of my friends were at this event. I began talking to my friend, Mike, and his wife. We all started walking back over to our table. I happened to see Melissa so I walked up to her and said hello. She looked like she recognized me and seemed very, very embarrassed and shocked. I just said hello and briefly had a conversation with her and then sat down. I stayed for a while and then I left.
AllAboutTRH: Were you there when Joe Gorga came?
Vrohidis: What?
AllAboutTRH: Were you there when Melissa’s husband came to the event?
Vrohidis: No, I had left. I received a phone call and had to be somewhere else. I had no idea her husband was coming and had no idea any of that stuff was going to happen. It’s not my place to know that.
AllAboutTRH: I heard you had a microphone on you, is that true?
Vrohidis: Yes I did. I was asked to help promote my friend, John’s, salon and I was at the salon while Teresa was getting her hair done. Everyone in the salon had a mic on them.
AllAboutTRH: I heard Teresa was getting blamed for you being there and you were mic’d because Teresa knew that you used to work with Melissa.
Vrohidis: No. I did not know Teresa at all. Teresa knew nothing about this. When she was at the salon getting her hair done, I introduced myself to her and Kim D was there. I said hello and told her, you know I know your sister in law. She used to work for me. And she was very shocked. I never met the girl before in my life. That was my first time.
AllAboutTRH: What did she respond back to you when you told her Melissa danced at lookers? How did she react?
Vrohidis: I don’t want to say too much but she was very defensive of Melissa and said, “Listen don’t talk about my family like that.” She didn’t like the fact that I mentioned that Melissa and I worked together. I apologized to her repeatedly and told her that I had no idea she didn’t know. You know, I would assume she would know this about her sister-in-law. But you’ll see what happens when it airs.
AllAboutTRH: So she didn’t dance for years?
Vrohidis: No. It wasn’t even for a year. I don’t know what she did before that nor do I know what she did after that. It’s that type of industry where I was concerned solely with that club. Nothing else. My main concern was the bartenders and the bartenders cannot work anywhere else. When they work for you, they can work for you only. On the other hand, entertainers…they can work wherever they want. My friends from ‘Lookers’ did contact me but there also have been people that I have spoken to who claim Melissa tried contacting people from ‘Lookers’ to tell them to say she was only a bartender, not a dancer.
Vrohidis: I wasn’t out to hurt anyone. I just met the girl (Teresa) at the salon and said to her, I know your sister in law. I didn’t know anything was going to happen. I wasn’t trying to be malicious or hurt anyone. That’s not my intention and I’m just not that kind of person.
Vrohidis: You have to understand, bartenders got paid by checks. Dancers were independent contractors that did not get paid by the establishment. It’s different now but she worked a long time ago and that’s how it was back then. When Melissa worked, we didn’t pay the dancers and they didn’t pay us.
Vrohidis: Dancing is not a bad thing so I don’t know why she is denying it. A lot of girls I know that danced have made such a name for themselves. I know dancers who have become nurses and someone who is a lawyer right now. I’m glad to see Melissa do something good for herself. I have nothing against the girl. I barely know her anymore. It was just one of those things, you know. And you will see it all when it airs out. You’ll see how off guard I was when Teresa came back at me and reacted angry. I was completely off guard and you can’t fake or make up stuff like that. I was really surprised. I was just shocked that she didn’t know because I wasn’t trying to hurt anybody.
Vrohidis: She’s going to keep denying it because she’s already denied it so many times. But do a lot of people know? Absolutely. Of course they know.

Well there you have it. My interview with the general manager of the gentleman’s club, Lookers. On 11/13/11 I went on my twitter page to tweet about my interview with Angelo. Melissa got word of this and quickly went on her twitter to once again deny that she has “danced.” Without seeing the interview, she immediately tweeted me and said “Honey..u r interviewing with a guy that is lying to u for some sort of recognition, I’ve meet him twice in my life…” Keep in mind, she did admit to “bartending” at Lookers for a couple months while he managed it but says she only met him twice. She then tweets someone and says “btw, I feel for him, I hear he has a major drug problem…Don’t wish it on anyone…” She then got countless angry tweets at her for accusing someone of being on drugs. Someone even said “drug problem?? Wow thought you were a God loving woman, the way you put people down for your benefit is so UGLY.” Her tweet sparked so many backlashes that she deleted it. Many people asked her why she deleted the tweet. She ignored until one of our amazing followers sent her a screenshot (that is pictured below) of the tweet. She responded “honey..I deleted bc it’s not fair to put that out there..not for me to say. He shouldn’t go around lying.” But Melissa, honey, the damage is already done! Why would Melissa call Joe the day of the fashion show if she only had met Angelo “twice?” Why was she so afraid? What are your thoughts?

  • I am not a Melissa fan, but some people take this show way too seriously. T let this shit go and some viewers are getting way too aggresive over this.

  • While think this kind of Real estate property industry hope against hope turn back in the positive course? Or maybe can it be at a standstill very young to tell? We’re glimpse many terracing property foreclosures modish cggedceekgec

  • ” Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone….” words to live by, if Melissa danced in her past, it is her past and she has moved on, found God in the process, and by all accounts is a great mom and a loving doting wife. She has nothing to be ashamed about and I do not blame her for not wanting to admit that, as most young woman who have stripped are not normally proud of something they may have had to do a lower point in their lives. If anything she is a great example to many young girls that you can turn your life around and that everyone deserves to find love. In Melissa’s case she is now living the American dream, and it seems that many people out there are very jealous indeed, what a shame. Melissa enjoy the wonderful life you have been blessed with and remember it is when you are at your best that they will try to tear you down – All the best lady!!

  • I say who cares if Melissa was a dancer. I do think if she was a dancer she should own up to it. Lying about it would be wrong. I hope Theresa didn’t set up Melissa. Both women should quit be so vicious to each other.

  • what a storm in a teacup , who really cares what these girls did or did not do , they are married to decent men , raising young children looking after their homes and making themselves look gorgeous , it’s just drama to make the tv show get more viewers, is there ever an ephisode where there are now rows or arguments and no one screaming over some one else ? Its worse than a chicken run ,its a shame I like these shows I like to see how the other side of the world lives etc , but guess it wouldn’t be much different here in Aus , same kind of thing would happen , all human nature I guess to try to put some one else down , keep up the shows please

  • Who cares it all RUBBISH!!! from the guy that wants his 15minutes of fame to MG who is getting her 15 minutes of fame. For people to have such strong opinions for things that do not add one minute to quality of life for starving, sick human beings its pretty petty non-sense.

      • Actually read all her tweets about Teresa. It’s always “T’s right and everyone is wrong” and “T doesn’t start things everyone is so jealous of T”. Teresa is as fake as they get. I just hope that they fire her and she can actually take care of her kids and keep pretending her Juicy Joe does’t do anyone w/a skirt. She has ruined that show. Shame on Bravo for not firing.

  • I almost forgot Melissa was at an event yesterday for a million dollar car, Melissa was not their first choice Teresa was, i thought i would let her fans know.

    • I thought I saw a bunch of articles about Teresa hosting that event and then Mel tweeted she was doing it… so I replied on her tweet that I read Teresa was doing that event and of course, princess mel did not respond.

  • Melissa is a Teresa clone, the show, the hairdresser, the stylist, and Teresa said season one she no cooks and nannies guess who’s saying it now? Melissa!

  • The Gorgas were willing to say and do anything to get on the show, even if it meant bringing the drama and taking down a family member. Pathetic. In my opinion, they believed and still do, that they were smarter than everyone and could use the show to bounce them to stardom. What I do not understand, is how they believed their past would not come out? I understand she called employees at Lookers to ask them not to reveal her position but they can’t expect that everyone is in love with them and loyal to them.Wait…I think they do believe that.

  • I would like to point out that Melissa always twists words n manipulates ppl. At the reunion she said “Teresa threatened my life” which isn’t true. Her idiotic mind translated ” Danielle is crazy” 2 above statement. She’s always instigating, manipulating n lying. Her in-laws (justifiable) hate her. Imagine how much they h8 her now after watching the reunion. What In-laws would like u after watching u tear their daughter apart??! Melissa if u read this.. Ur trashy, nasty, 2faced n should own up 2 ur trickery shit!

  • Wow I can’t believe someone would deny their past like that. I mean we’ve all done things we may not be proud of, but when you’re a public figure you have a sense of responsibility to say the truth. Nice job getting the interview!

  • Melissa just signed her own fate. Who can believe her now! Teressa tried to warn her prior to the show what could happen and Melissa thought she could handle it. Guess not! She wanted money and fame and now she has it negatively, so now maybe she can stop doing the signs of the cross. She has Don Caroline on her side so maybe she can get consuled by a pro on how to turn it around, or maybe start some other gossip about Teressa so that the focus will be off her and her behavior.

  • I really am curious about the whole “who paid for Melissa’s boob job”. I wonder if they are saying Lookers paid for the bubbies??? On twitter I have read that is what some of the ‘dirt’ Penny and John have on her.

  • So Melissa was a former stripper? Big deal! Why did she have to lie about it? I guess now that she is a “famous” entertainer and on a housewives show, she has a certain image to maintain. Always be true to who you are. It isn’t like Melissa broke any laws or did anything illegal.

    To think she used Teresa as a scapegoat speaks volumes about her true character. I actually felt bad for Melissa when talk about what went down on at the fashion show said Teresa was behind it. Tsk tsk Melissa.

    I do find it funny Rich Wakile said Melissa can’t dance. LOL Little did he know…..

  • “Keep in mind, she did admit to “bartending” at Lookers for a couple months while he managed it but says she only met him twice.”

    So True.

    Gotta keep up with your lies, girl!

  • At times, when you try to set up and hurt other people, YOU come out looking worst. She exposed herself and her pathetic family by coming into the show. BTW i don’t think the Gorgas like her at all. Teresa probably defended her only on camera, i think Teresa knew she probably was a stripper.

  • Ain’t it funny now, she’s tweeting pics of her kids…Trick please, you have been on twitter for the past months and have less than 3 pics of your kids…Now all of a sudden. Scripper Mel needs to stop.

  • Oh, for heaven’s sake. NeNe Leakes TOTALLY owns her stripper past and she’s the queen bee of RHOA. Melissa should do the same and move on. Really — it’s just not that big a deal.

  • Thanks for the good scoop. Way to go on your interview. If Melissa was not a dancer then why is she trying so hard to discredit this guy with all the “drug” accusations. She is such a famewhore its funny who her and Joe say Teresa never acknoldged them yet you see her in the backround at T’s house party on the first season and she looks totally different like a normal person fast foward to now and she looks like a mini T. Oh and she definitly got a nose job. I just can’t stand her at all she is so fake and phony. People just don’t wake up one day and say I think I am going to start a rumor that Mellisa from RHONJ was a stripper. Give me a break you are not Justin Beiber.

  • Ok first of all, some are questioning if this is true and where’s the proof.
    well, here’s the thing – Melissa’s manager denied her being a dancer, BUT what relevance does that information have? he could have been paid to say that. The Gorga’s have money and we know this since Melissa LOVES to brag about how spoiled she is. It would be so easy for her to pay off anyone to lie for her. Don’t get it twisted. Teresa isn’t a saint but Melissa is dangerous. She’s a liar and a snake. Most people who have to constantly remind themselves that their lives are wonderful and happy are just trying to convince themselves ..ahem Jac and joe G. Jac knows what a fool she has been..she’ll believe a 5 year old just to have some action in her life. The poor woman is so delusional , It’s quite sad. SHE was absolutely a dancer/stripper in Vegas. Guess what? They are not bad people. They are real! they do what they have to do in order to survive. The fact that she is denying/hiding it is stupid. If tabloids can figure out sex scandals from celebs what makes you think the truth will stay buried for you? Get over yourselves! non of you are perfect and one of the reasons why I root for Teresa is because she’s the realest one of them all.

    Also Jac “claims” that she’s not mad at Teresa for that whole situation…Um right.
    is that why you dedicated a whole twitter letter post calling her scum and telling everyone “She PLOTTED it SHE KNEW, SHE TOLD ME SHE KNEW MEL WAS A STRIPPER – SHE BLAMED PRODUCTION” Sooo Jac what do you have to say for yourself? go ahead, give Caroline a look and make sure it’s ok with her first.

    • Jac is too busy worrying about the huge lawsuit her and her husband are facing. Melissa needs the world to think she is this classy, talented, person. She needs to stop saying “Thank you Jesus” and making the sign of the cross incorrectly. She goes overboard with the whole religion thing.

      Perhaps Teresa was correct about Melissa only wanting Joe Gorga for his money. She certainly is living a lavish lifestyle compared to what she had.

  • GREAT interview !…
    thanks for the effort & honest reporting .respect .
    a big shout-out to mr . vrohidis for clearing up the lies & attacks on tre’ ….
    na eisai poly kala paligari’ ! xaxaa

  • you seen it from day one all she wants is fame at watever cost lil does she know karma is a bitch n it will get ya. a few bucks in the bank doesnt give class nor much less erase your past, once a hoe always a hoe and the hoe married a ahole who bought her lies and pays for her past. sorry for them kids mama’s a lying hoe. melissa n sisters r trash n unfortunately her daugther will follow suit. look at caroline n her porker same thing. also jacqueline n her mess lol she’s another one paying for her mistakes thru ashlee and all them bread bracelets cant erase karma. lol you reap wat you sow, lmao

    • Melissa is hypocritical, manipulative, passive-aggressive, and petty — but she clearly loves her kids. The crack about her daughter is way out of line.

    • I take offense to a couple things in your post. One is the comment about Antonia. She’s an innocent. No matter what her mom has or has not done…Antonia is a doll and has done nothing to deserve negative comments. So…please…refrain.

      Secondly, “A ho is always a ho” is such a sad comment. It is also, fortunately, very untrue. People can look in the mirror, see things they don’t like and make changes. It happens all the time in EVERYONE’s life. You don’t like your job- you go back to school and get a different profession…you don’t like your hair color…you go to the salon and get a different one…etc. etc. People can and DO change. (Thank you Jesus!) It’s one of life’s best blessings!

      Now, having said all this- I cannot stand Melissa’s attitude. Period. And I love, love, love Teresa!

    • Can we get some info of PDKHAIR? This woman looks so pretty!!!! There goes Melissa’s spotlight. I actually live in Franklin Lakes, but grew up in Paramus. I don’t know them. Anyone???

  • Wow why not post my comment??!! You know where I called your exclusive interview BS!! I SO CALL BS.

    Prove you really talked to him. WHAT’S THE PROOF?? I don’t buy it. Don’t you think you should move on??

    • Melissa needs to bring the proof that she was never a stripper, but only a bartender. She needs to show her tax and her 1099. Because if you work as a bartender you must file a 1099 for the tips. So, sit down.

    • What reason would she have for fabricating an entire interview that could get her into so much serious trouble? Think before you type.

      • Actually I am not her sister. Anyway, I know first hand that this blogger gets paid by Theresa. Think about it….why all the good post. It’s always T’s not lying everyone else is, blah blah blah blah. Look I have a interview with a reliable source I wanna post.

        Me: do you think this blogger is a: paid by Theresa B: stalking Theresa C made the whole interview up

        A bravo source. It’s A.

        there you go. THATS A FACT.

        • Lol, I get paid by T? I WISH! That would be amazing. A. I don’t think T would pay someone to make a website discussing all the housewives but whatever makes you feel better. B. I wouldn’t risk getting seriously sued by Angelo and by Melissa for “making this up” And C. You seem very upset that the interview exposes the truth about someone who has been lying. D. Don’t leave comment and say false things like i’m getting paid by a housewife

          Thanks in advance 🙂

          • Can you prove you have actually done the interview. And if you haven’t been paid then you seriously need a hobby. Get over it, who do you think you are the next Perez Hilton?? If that is the case find other more interesting people to write about then T..kinda makes you seem…um in love/obsessed with her. Either way, move on.

          • In regards to the response from notobsessedwithTG, if you pick apart the interview, it’s not as if Angelo ever stated anything that would be deemed as favouring Theresa in any regard. He claims to not even know her. Also, he claims that she acted fairly rude towards him in his friend’s salon that kind of makes her come across as aggressive over the simple statement “Oh, hey. I used to work with your sister-in-law.”

            That brings up two scenarios, really. The first being that Melissa got drunk and then told Theresa about what she actually used to do and Theresa, being Theresa and too damn loyal to her family to just ignore it, told her to do her best to convince everyone that she was just a bartender. This leads to Theresa knowing the Angelo’s name and being able to put two and two together, causing her to be immediately defensive.

            The second and less likely scenario is that Angelo bumped into Theresa, watched the show, happened to be mic’d for the salon promotion, annoyed Theresa by saying hi, and then he took it personally and made up a REALLY elaborate lie that involved going back in time, becoming the manager of a strip club, fixing the books where Melissa worked, and then coming back to the present to bump into her again at that very same salon to maintain continuity in the time stream.

            I actually kind of hope that it’s the second one because that would make for a better show. lol

            If Melissa had nothing to hide or be afraid of, she’d just laugh at the stupid thing and it wouldn’t have any weight to it. If she’s erasing tweets and carrying a “pay stub” from years ago that she just happened to pull out of thin air on the off-chance that questions would be asked, there’s obviously something going on.

            “I can’t be an alcoholic, all these bottles are empty and that means there’s nothing to drink!”

            Yep. Great logic.

          • I admit that I just started blogging, but have read your and Fame’s blogs most of 2012. How is this all knowledge in 2011? When it was just after PFS? So, all this was known that long, and right after….lol, I should’ve been on a lot longer than spring and summer of 2012. :-).

    • Oh Lysa, you must be so upset your sister’s star is fading. Maybe your “one side” should be Teresa now, since you crave attention like your sister. I bet you were a dancer at Lookers before Melissa and got her a job there. Skank!

  • Now we need the truth about Jac… She denies that she was a stripper, too. I truly believe that’s why she went off the deep end at the fashion show…she knows she’s next. The sad thing is, Jac was my favorite of the nj housewives until she (and het mother) went nuts on twitter. I really started disliking her when she started tweeting comments during the reunion show(s). If you decided not to go, shut the hell up behind your keyboard!

    • Girl…. you took the words right out of my mouth! lol I do think Jac was a escort/stripper and she flipped out on Teresa cause maybe she really did think Teresa outed melissa and she was worried that she would be outed next. IDK But her mother really is crazy!! Know I understand why Jac is a little crazy…she get it from her momma. Jac was always my fav not anymore they made me a fan of Teresa. Never liked Caroline and her babies.

  • Good for you, I don’t know these ladies but she had to have known that when she put her life ” ON DISPLAY ON DISPLAY” lol that eventually the ugly truth would come out. She shouldn’t be ashamed the past is the past.

  • I’m sorry I just don’t see how this is anything different from what we already heard went on at the fashion show. And who was the guy that came forward as Melissa’s manager and said she was not a stripper. What makes this guy more credible than the other?

    Just seems like he said/she said w/o any proof…

  • I also do not care what she worked as what bothers me the most is that she let T take the blame for something that didn’t happen. I never trusted Melissa or Kathie; I also never trusted Joe & Melissa and Kathie and richie I believe they are all fame whores. Including all the Manzo’s and their kids and their friend Greg. They talked about Teresa and Joe like that and all of a sudden they are sensitive about a stripper/car wash wasn’t an entire episode dedicated to Chris Manzo and his career choice? Are we watching the same show and their are all sorts of stories out now about Jac and her husband finances but they want to drag T through the mud. Teresa is out their busting her Ass working for Jac to call her scum? Over this; she claims there is another reason; lets have it big mouth. THey have ruined the entire show for me; all back stabbers, and quite frankly being of Italian American decent I am ashamed how they have treated family and friends. Any man to call a woman and his sister garbage He isn’t a man to me; he is a punk and they to claim Joe Guiduice started the fight he defended his wife. Can’t anyone see how desprate they are for camera time. And Caroline is the fakest phoney of them all if it is true they are out season 5 I say adios losers!!!! Great infor. and I do believe this guy.

  • That’s proberly where Joe met her and not on in the D.R. as they sed. Glad she got caught hopefully now they will just go away and take their cousins the Wackadoes with them. Thank you Jesus now whose on display hahaha

  • I could give a rats hiney if she was a stripper or not. That’s not the point. Point is, she allowed T to get all the blame for something she had nothing to do with. She (Melissa) purposely allowed this to happen. She could have at any moment stopped the madness, but didn’t. I think it’s hysterical because all the others on the show just LOVE her and blamed T for everything. Mind you, I’m not a huge T fan and I think all those ladies are nutso..LOL but that’s why I watch the show. Anyhoo… do I think this guy is telling the truth? You bet I do and as MELISSA herself said on Twitter (I saw the tweet myself) “he’s a liar and just wants recognition” Oh really? Then why not go to a major magazine and sell the story to get a butt load of $$$ instead?

    • I also think Joe Gorga has been neck deep in this cr*p. He has been awful to Teresa. He also went on twitter ranting that he thought “blood was thicker than water.” He publicly accused her of setting Melissa up without getting her side. That is the saddest part of all for me. He is LETTING Melissa ruin his family and it’s not cool! He’s mad that Teresa “ignored” him or that she didn’t invite him to the Season 2 Premiere? Really? Hello- she’s “paying her bills”. Someone has to bring home the bacon. He has the integrity of a flea. Shame on him.

      • AND, I totally go with what Teresa said, that she did not invite him because Melissa just had a baby and thought that he would rather with his newborn. How would Teresa know that being in the spotlight was more important and besides HE is her brother and I am sure that if he went to the Premier he would not have been turned away. He is a big boy, and if you love your sister that much then hop in the car and GO!

      • I think the problem with JoGo is that he’s still pissed off that his family thinks his wife is trash. He married a ho and thinks everyone should embrace her with open arms and from what I have seen, it’s not going to happen.

        • Now we know why his parents do not seem to like her. They always acted cold towards her and Joe. It has to be a small town where everyone each others business.



  • Ok kudos yo u did deliver the goods. Congrats on interview, for a new blogger that is obviously a great win! I do have some clarifications, not sure if you know the answers. I know Looker’s is a Gentlemen’s club but still not specified Melissa’s role as Dancer vs Stripper. Some strippers go full nudity, other’s partial and still others scantily clad but important parts covered even if with fig leaf so to speak, lol. Which category is Angelo claiming applies to Melissa?

    Also when he met Teresa at Salon, did he introduce himself by name and profession then I know your SIL? Did he tell Teresa Melissa danced at the club? Not dealt with in the interview and how was it that Teresa knew to be upset with him? An innocent my name is John Doe and I know your sister in law would not incite a angry retort or defense from Teresa.

    Angelo is also dancing around the facts, alluding like Jaquelyn and her stupid tweets, more to come as it unfolds on TV. Does that mean he is under Bravo contract and can’t speak out on things? If under Bravo contract how did he get there? Did he contact Bravo or did they contact him?

    Always enjoy reading the skinny on reality figures, especially the ones who make out to be above what the viewer sees. I do believe you in your telling of the story, not sure I believe Angelo because of the questions that are left unanswered and in my mind that is either because you didn’t ask, he was not being honest with you or it didn’t happen.

    I think your intentions are in the right place so I will continue to read your blog and look forward to seeing what you do with it. To protect yourself from slander lawsuits, would suggest that you be a little more detailed getting to as many facts as possible when you are attacking someone’s reputation so you can live up to the moniker “all about truth”. Good luck going forward.

    • In NJ, dancers do not dance nude or even fully topless in any establishment with a liquor licences (serves alcohol). Unless Lookers is a “byob”, she did not dance nude.

      • Accidently hit “post comment” before I finished…
        So,most likely she danced “scantily clad”, which leaves the question, why work so hard to squash it??? Does she really think anyone with even half a brain believes she is the innocent, holier than thou, prude she thinks she portrays??? I mean, honestly, look at the outfits she lip syncs in??? She dresses like and dances like a stripper now. Really… Get over it and get honest with yourself, MeGo!!!

        OMG, I’m hearing her voice again “Tur-Reese-Aaah”! Aaaaaahhhhhhhh Make it stop!

      • learn to spell, melissa gorga must have been your teacher lol spell check on display on display lmao your an idiot , thank you Jesus learn to spell hunny!

          AllAboutTRH: Great job on your new site! I can’t wait to see what you’ll post next!




            How was my spelling? lol

  • Wow,I don’t get why Melissa or some feel the need to lie if they were dancer’s!! Dancer’s made good $$ & it does’nt make her a bad person! Lieing does & running to castmates to WRECK your sis-in-law makes her a BAD PERSON!! Anyone with eyes & a brain could see how uncomfortable Teresa was from beginning of season, then she got defensive & Melissa is so phony..well she got what she set out to do & I gotta believe Karma’s gonna bite that a**. NOT because she was a dancer not even for lieing abt. it, hey maybe she’s embarressed, but because she’s NOT REAL, phony’s can’t keep up the pretense for long, the real Melissa will come out eventually.At least Teresa IS REAL
    & I like she’s silly,hardworking,has a temper & not afraid to jump, she’s a great mom & wife & trying so hard to help her family outta their $mess that played out on t.v. Cousin Kathy I like her too..I THINK she is/was sincere.
    I liked ALL the ladies till this season & THEY ALL changed alil here alil there but they ALL changed. Teresa due to circumstances!! I saw the HURT but people love to kick ya when your down just didn’t expect to see that from these gals or her family.
    LOVE DINA TOO- She’s real & she’s not evil. Hey best to all, Melissa wanted the fame train.well she got it..Love Love Teresa, & I pray all good things ahead for her & her’s!! She might’ve been down but she’s NOT OUT!!! Strong woman to endure all this!! I’d love to know how many idiots won’t believe this’s easier to think the worst & blame Teresa..

  • Yay on getting the website up and the interview! There is one thing that is still a big mystery. When all this drama happened, Teresa tweeted that “what happened was much worse” than Melissa being a stripper. So what was so much worse? Was it that Teresa was so upset that everyone thought she set Melissa up? I feel like there is something missing…. Does anyone have any thoughts? Am I missing something?

  • No lie ever stays hidden, I’m upset because she allowed everyone to think a different way of T to cover her ass and make herself “look better ” not cool! I have always liked T and so proud of her successes….. This was interesting to read thank you!

  • Melissa can easilyprove she was a bartender by providing pay stubs or SS printout for hours worked, The dancers were not paid by Lookers but the
    bartenders were.

    • I’m sure she will produce them soon if I were her I would sue Angelo for slander and liable… she was in fact a bartender..

      • Actually, producing a paystub that proved she bartended for a few weeks out of a month doesn’t mean she never danced, it just means that when she wasn’t on the pole she was serving drinks.

        I used to work as a doorman at a club in a border town myself, and it’s not like the two jobs never intertwined.

        I thought she already produced a doctored paystub, not to mention she’s been threatening to sue people if they so much as say she “danced”, and I haven’t heard anything about Angelo being charged with libel or any sort of public defamation.

        Honestly, I can’t really blame her for trying to hide it. She probably doesn’t want the possibility of illicit pics from those days circulating around ala Vanessa Hudgens. I actually kind of figured that Melissa had a past that involved some kind of barely clothed frolicking just from the way she carried herself in public. That’s a practiced false confidence right there.

        • “I used to work as a doorman at a club in a border town myself, and it’s not like the two jobs never intertwined.”

          I mean the bartenders dancing. Not my stripping a gentleman’s club. That would take way too much waxing and I don’t have the right equipment for it.

  • Brilliant!!! I am stunned at how Melissa thought this would never get out. No wonder how she keeps saying in interviews that her and Teresa are in a better place. She KNOWS she is about to get egg all over her face, and has calculatingly decided to become closer to Teresa. She knows Jac and Caroline are off the show, and her allies are gone (except for Kathy, who does not have a brain for herself). The tides are changing!!!!


    • She can try to get close to T, but when Penny unleashes the wrath of the past I’m thinking T will be neutral because underneath T wants to hear it all!!!!!



  • I do believe you are being played/used. I don’t believe this is true at all. Didn’t Melissa’s REAL manager (Larry Guarino) at Lookers already confirm that Melissa was only a bartender and never a dancer. It is obvious that Angelo, John, and Penny are desperate to be on RHONJ. I am already so turned off by these three that I will find something else to watch if they are in fact asked to join the cast. How disgusting.

    • Seriously, who cares if she was a dancer or not…sheesh…the whole point is…Teresa did not set up the situation or put it out there that she was a dancer…Melissa allowed others to say that Teresa set the whole thing up. She did not stand by her family!

      • Hey DonnaLee,

        I agree with you. I really don’t care if she was in fact a dancer either. I went back to read the interview again since you pointed out the fact that it also proves that Teresa did not set Melissa up. I agree with you on that in a way too. I think that it was set up by others including Bravo producers. In addition I would like to point out the fact that based on the information provided in this interview it does appear as though Teresa was being filmed at the salon and knew he would be attending the fashion show. Did she warn Melissa and her brother ahead of time? Did she protect Melissa and her family by refusing to attend the fashion show? I am thinking that is why she is being accused of being involved in the set up. I mean come on…Teresa is not a stupid girl. This wasn’t her first year of filming and I think she knew what was going on. I can say with certainty that if it was me I would have let my family know and spared them the humiliation.

        On the other hand…I could be completely wrong. Let me tell you girl it would not be the first time. I guess we can only speculate for now until we see it air. Hey…for all we know they were ALL in on it and they are sitting back laughing at all of us for arguing about.

        I do respect that everyone has their favorite and will disagree with my opinion and that is fine. I respect everyones opinion (even if it differs from mine) and I am not looking for a fight at all. I will continue to read the comments left here and ya never know…maybe one of you will be able to change my mine.

        • I thought I read somewhere that Teresa did try to tell Melissa that someone she used to work with was coming to the show and that Melissa did not take it as a warning but a threat (from Teresa instead of from the guest). Just goes to show that if you think people come from the same place that you are in (jealousy and deceit) you can twist their words no matter what is said.

        • LOL @ Yeah right! If it ever comes out that Bravo set this all up…I would not even be surprised. I just had a feeling all along that it was not Teresa who set Melissa up.

    • Ya and its obvious that Mel and Joe was desperate to get on the show to look what they did. They tried to destroy Teresa for their own fame. Their own family! At least their not going after their own family like the snake and pervert did.

      • Hey Monica,

        Ouch….o.k. it probably wasn’t nice of me to use the word desperate in regards to John and Penny. Wish I could take it back but since I can’t I will just say sorry and admit it wasn’t nice. I would agree with you that ALL of the cast members are there because they want a little fame and fortune including Joe and Melissa. I watched all of the episodes and I fail to see how they tried to destroy Teresa though. I am all ears if you care to point out what they did. Personally I think they are all horrible to each other with the things they say behind each others backs but I wouldn’t go as far as to say anybody tried to destroy anybody. I will admit that I am not a huge fan of Teresa’s however I will give credit where credit is due. Teresa is a star and I don’t think there is anything that Mel or Joe could do about it even if they wanted to. Teresa has built up a fan base that will stand by her no matter what she says or does. I also admire all of her hard work. Like she said she is bringing home the bacon.




          OCCUPY RHONJ !!!!!

    • Oh, hello Gorgas/Marcos. What a ridiculous comment!!!! Real Manager? Obviously Larry was asked by Melissa to lie for her. He worked for Angelo as a manager, Angelo was the GM. Learn to read. Angelo stated in interview he was commented by friends and coworkers that Melissa scrambled to cover her tracks. You won’t watch if John and Penny get on? Its ok, because the rest of us will.

  • Thank you for this!! Melissa is a fraud and a phony scumbag. I really don’t care that she stripped, it’s the fact that she tries to portray this good girl image that we all know is not true! Stop blaming Teresa for everything. I can’t STAND her, and this interview only solidifies it for me. I can’t wait for Tre to come out on top and I hope they cast the salon owners in Season 5 so Melissa can get the villain treatment.






      • Just tell us who bought Melissa’s ta-ta’s. Tell us something that makes us want you on the show, entertain us, don’t tease us or expect us to tweet Andy for you.

  • omg! best interview ever, finally the REAL story comes out, i hope melissa and caroline eat their words with what they said about teresa. Teresa deserves a BIG APOLOGY! Melissa is nothing but a sneaky slithering SNAKE who got caught in her lies. Now what Melissa???????

  • Excellent!! BRAVO to you for this epic interview=) I knew you were good people when I started following you on Twitter. And a very fair person, as well. Thank you for keeping it real AND honest! Being a GENUINE person gets one far in life. xoxo

  • I think the person who mostly tried to make it seem like Teresa set up Melissa was Jacqueline via Twitter like a fool and now she should apologize along with Caroline plus Kathie…I never got the impression that Melissa totally blamed Teresa for that but she sure was happy to have others do it for her and THAT she needs to apologize for…she did not stand up for family! She was more worried about being family to Caroline and Jacqueline!

    • I asked Jac if she found out that Teresa didnt set Melissa up would she say sorry to Teresa for blaming her and she DM me and said thats not why I’m mad at her! She could of fooled me cause she sure had alot to say about it on twitter.

      • Hmmmmz, I guess now that this truth has come out, Jacqueline is most likely going to switch it to she is mad because Teresa blamed her for the pics of her husband and that girl at the TGIFridays hitting the internet. Saw that on Twitter also. However, I believe that Kim G was the one who let those pics out. In that regard, Teresa owes Jacqueline an apology.

  • HAHA I knew it! Great job getting it confirmed I really hope that someone has a pic of her dancin. That would be great!

  • Finally we know the truth! She was a stripper! Do I dislike her more because of it? No. Simply because I couldn’t dislike her anymore than I do now. For being a liar! If you do something right or wrong, you own it! You have to stay true to your fans. I will always like Teresa Giudice because she doesn’t pretend to be perfect, she’s real! I can accept her faults because of this. Thanks for all your hard work creating this website and putting yourself out there so fans would know the truth?

    • Very interesting story. However, has anyone read the statement by Larry Guarino, the manager at the time Melissa was working? In the end I’m thinking so what if she danced. Look at Nene from RHOA she owns it and it didn’t seem to stop her money flow.

      • Alegna,

        Very interesting indeed. I have seen the statement put out by Larry. I think he claimed to be the manager on duty during the hours of Melissa’s shift. It is all very confusing. Somebody is lying for sure. I certainly don’t believe that this blogger is lying. Somebody gave her an interview. I hope she can prove that it was in fact Mr. Vrohidis. What if he denies giving this interview? Then what? Is this blogger then left holding the bag? I have already read somewhere (I think it was on twitter) that he was already denying it by the way. I had previously commented below that I think she is being used but I sure hope I am wrong. I don’t know…something about this just isn’t sitting right with me. Thoughts??? Anyone???

          • AllAboutTRH,

            Hey thanks for responding. I definitely saw someone make that comment on Twitter somewhere. It was probably made by some random person though with no real knowledge and probably should be taken with a grain of salt. I certainly didn’t take it as gospel and I haven’t read it anywhere but there. If I happen to come across it again I will let you know where I saw it. I am happy to hear that you are confident that you are not being played. I can’t even explain why this doesn’t feel right to me though. I guess I am just to old and cynical…lol. I am definately not trying to make trouble here. You seem like such a sweet young girl…and yeah I am probably old enough to be your mom. I was just trying to look out for you is all. I do love your blog and the fact that I can share my opinion without being attacked. Well…for the most part anyway. I am going to just ignore the one that accused me of being a Gorga/Marco. I do however find it ironic that that very same person can be found commenting on another blog and has been accused of being Johnny The Greek. He/she didn’t really appreciate the accusations made there but didn’t hesitate to accuse me of being someone that I am clearly not. Anyway…best of luck to you with this blog….just don’t let it get in the way of your studies girlie 😉

            • That’s one of the reasons I made this website. Just so us TV junkies can state our opinions no matter what it is and discuss! Lol! Thanks so much for being concerned. I really appreciate it and thanks for the well wishes!

        • Really!! Wake up, What land do you live on seriously now , The f-ING girl was a ex-stripper so just leave it at that.. IT’S THE TRUTH ! DO YOU GET IT BY NOW, MELISSA IS THE LIAR WE ALL KNEW ABOUT, COME ! GET REAL FOR ONES. DAM, I JUST DON’T GET IT WHY PEOPLE ARE SO DUM…..

      • NeNe is from a very Italian family. She can’t come clean now, it would hurt and change the family (Joe’s mom and dad) Read my comment above. I truly believe it is to save them.

  • melissa is a pathological liar and needs to publically joe and melissa both apologize to teresa and her family

  • So the truth is out 🙂 Efharisto, Mr. Vrohidis for being so honest and clearing Teresa’s name for the fans. It is disturbing to hear that Teresa stood up for Melissa, and told you not to talk about her family, only to have the very person she stood up for, and her former friends throw her under the bus for it and, in the words of Caroline “crucify” her for something she never did.

    • Does anyone else remember the first episode with mini man Joey stating that when he met meho, she was working 3 jobs and that he promised to put her on a petestal and give her a “Pretty Woman” life. Pretty Woman was about a prostitute who met a rich man who took her out of “the life”. Anyone else reading between those lines?

      • who cares what she did or didn’t do…if her hubby don’t care why should we,,really people grow up!! you should all be looking at the Giudices girls, when they grow up they are going to be so messed up, having to watch their mom, doing all this stuff to family and them.What 2 scum bags raisinng their daughters on tv showing the world whatt low lifes they both are..

        • The main problem is that Melissa is DENYING she was a dancer. If she were to fess up there wouldnt be a problem. Own up to what is yours and everything will be fine. If ppl cant handle it, then they need to grow up.

          • The fact of the matter is that Angelo is saying whatever he needs to get his 15 minutes of fame. I was a regular at lookers back in the day. I remember melissa very well. She was definately a bartender and never a dancer. The fact of the matter is that Angelo was one of the most hated managers that ever worked there. His brother Tommy is a local cop that everyone knows. This is probably the only reason that anyone ever even tolerated him. He has no clue how to run a club. He has also misled people into thinking that he owned the place. Thats a big fat lie. He wouldn’t even have had a job there if his deceased father wasn’t friends with the actual owners cris and manny kontos. Melissa was just a nice italian jersey girl who was making a few bucks bartending. I think the whole thing has been blown waaaaay out of proportion. Why isn’t anyone talking about angelo’s crackhead ex girlfriends who get high while thier kids are crying in the next room???

      • The more I read and watch the show the more I know Melissa and Joe aren’t telling the truth. People seem to forget one thing Joe and Theresa’s parents. Joe slipped at the reunion when he was explaining the kinda girl his father told him to marry. There is no doubt in my mind he knew she stripped, but they are trying to save their parents the embarassment. People of our generation don’t care if she stripped or not, but the parents generation is different. I understand why Joe and Melissa are denying it. If the parents found out they would have a much different opinion of Melissa. It is ok for Joe to strip but not Melissa. I’d keep it a secret also and for all these wacko’s to try and destroy a family should be shot. Angelo said Theresa didn’t know and I believe him. I saw it on her face at the hair salon. She might have known something was going to happen at the fashion show but I don’t think she knew exactly what it was, I do think if she knew she would have tried to stop it. I don’t think Theresa or Juicy Joe know how to articulate what they want to say, so when they talk it comes out wrong. Donna

    • Did anyone see the finale? This Angelo clearly says it was a set up!!!! Teresa meant for this to come out! Shame on her

      • Thank you! It seems people hear what they want & form their own opinions based in their own envious insecurities. PLUS Kim admitted it was a set up because she’s “vengeful” so people have to accept what is. Teresa is a jealous b*tch, period.
