Was Melissa Gorga Really A Stripper?

December 9, 2011 |By Continue Reading

For quite some time now, there has been some speculation that RHONJ star, Melissa Gorga WAS a stripper. Rumors started when Angelo Vrohidis (general manager of lookers) went to the Poshe fashion show and revealed that Melissa danced at the gentlemen’s club. AllAboutTRH was the first to interview the former manager and he confirmed to us she was in fact a dancer. We contacted lookers after and they responded “no comment.” Melissa Gorga has denied several times and stated she was only a bartender. Gorga wasn’t lying either..

AllAboutTRH is the first to reveal the corresponding pay stubs from 2003 (pictured below)when Melissa Marco was working at Lookers. If you go back to the interview with Angelo, he says “You have to understand, bartenders got paid by checks. Dancers were independent contractors that did not get paid by the establishment. Its 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.”

Clearly the existence of checks issued to Melissa Marco disproves Angelo’s assertion that she was a dancer.
It is clear based upon his statement and his recollection of who got paid and who didn’t, that if she was receiving checks she wasn’t dancing. Chris Kontos owner of lookers also signed a sworn certification that Melissa did bartend.
AllAboutTRH is All About bringing the truth and there you have it. If that is a real pay stub, it proves Melissa was bartending when she worked at the gentlemens club.

 

 

Do you think the pay stub is real? What are your thoughts?

If you are like me, there just are not enough hours in a day. I build and promote websites. Sometimes I work 16 hours a day. It’s a constant chore to keep up with all the different tools that are needed in order to promote my sites and get some visitors (and sales). The only thing that is saving my sanity right now is this new tool that takes all of the guess work out of promotions. It actually does a whole lot of stuff but it does it all behind the scenes. All I have to do is plug… Read more »

I agree with Belle557 that something is VERY off with not only these pay stubs but this whole situation. Roxanne is just blogging the information that is given to her – whether she likes the information given or the people it is about or not. So nobody should fault her for it or accuse her of being “in on” something. But I want to point out a few things I noticed about these “pay stubs” and about a few other things: 1. First of all, they are not pay stubs. I worked long enough in corporate accounting to know what… Read more »

Clearly, we all have an actual brain and can deduce that someone is lying/falsifying docs. That they “gorga team” might have bribed a blogger is not at all far fetched. They have done this before so of course they tried it with this new blogger- Did she take the bait? I don’t know but this post is being ironic, or naive (doubt it) OR she was paid for PR/hush up. Sad really..because bravno and Mego are just a waste of our time. No reason they should get rich off a shoddy product that does nothing but distract us…I am so… Read more »

Why did she work once Feb and March and not at all in April? I think she would fill in as a bartender here and there but was a stripper. Or that is a query on someone else and was photoshoped to have Melissa’s name. Is that even her last 4 # of SS. I call BS on this! Where are the stubs she claims she has?

Anyone can run an excel spreadsheet that is now dated to November 21, 2011. I want to see W2s they sent into the IRS. They should be able to get that as well. I think this is absolutely no proof, especially when this is only a Certification. I don’t believe it at all. Melissa was… Read more »

Rox, don’t you dare apologize for reporting a story. There’s more to this then you think. These bullshit papers can be doctored up anytime by a business owner. Was a W2 issued? Were Taxes filed? Who’s to say she didn’t dance and bartend? I smell bullshit. I actually see her MILF loving lawyer sending a letter to Angelo as a scare tactic threatening to sue. Then I see John and Penny sending in their lawyer and putting her FAKEASS on blast. So many fake twitter accounts created within a few days are attacking you, John, and Penny demanding retraction and… Read more »

I’m sorry but I don’t think she is ever going to get on the show. You cannot have a hairstylist whose own hair looks like something out of the eighties. So, if what they say is true and they are seeking justice and fairness for Teresa, like they claim, they need to put forth some sort of information now. So far, karma is a bitch is not cutting it for me. The time for karma is now. Melissa wants everybody to think that Teresa set her up with false accusations of being a stripper. The time to come to her… Read more »

I don’t understand how being a bartender means she wasn’t also a stripper?…. She did say she worked a ton of jobs at once. I wonder if she was a student teacher at the same time of all of this.

Just wondering if you ever gave a public twitter apology to Melissa once you found out the manager gave the wrong info? I mean seein as you were quick to believe a manager who hadn’t worked with her in 8 years. You were persistent with your tweets that you had the “truth”…. I think she deserves an apology whether u like her or not. It would be the right thing.

You are joking right? This blogger that got harrassed by the hag family on Thanksgiving, had her personal information posted online by them, was called a skank by their lawyer deserves to give them an apology? For what these fake papers she made on ms word? What are you smoking?

Why should Rox issue an apology. There is no public apology from Mel’s lawyer when he called Rox a skank . Further, these people would not evan apolgize to their own relatives. Do you remember what Joe called his sister?

She really doesn’t have to do anything! At the time she was given an interview with what she thought (or may be) a reliable source, and that was enough evidence at the time to believe that she was guilty. Now with further evidence she’s been proven innocent. (at least as innocent as working at a gentleman’s club can be). Do you think that Lawyers and Detectives apologize directly to people who are proven innocent? No they just send a retraction statement, which Roxanne just did. She is in no shape personally attached to this woman and is just a blogger.

And really? She got paid the EXACT same amount every time she worked and got the EXACT same amount of tip every night she worked? Highly unlikely. I don’t bartend, but I sure as hell know that bartenders and anyone who works in restaurants don’t get paid the same amount of tip EVERY. NIGHT.

Just because Melissa can “provide proof” that she was a bartender doesn’t mean she wasn’t also a dancer. Like the guy said, only bartenders got paychecks and strippers/dancers didn’t. So maybe she got a paystub for bartending but obviously didn’t get one for dancing. All this proves is that Melissa was a bartender there but it doesn’t prove that she also wasn’t a stripper.

agreed. I am a bartender and you are required to report every dollar you earn, for tax purposes, just like every other US citizen. If the amount of all the reported tip income from a particular business comes out to at least 8% of the sales, supposedly the business is ‘safe’ from an IRS audit. However, IF this is the actual paysheet, and I was an IRS agent, someone reporting exactly 8 hours every week and exactly the SAME amount of tips every week would raise a red flag for me! No one in the service industry who gets paid… Read more »

The link to the site where people talk about strip-clubs in 2004 is funny because it mentions Franks Chicken House which was a notorious full-nude club in Manville, NJ. I wonder if its still there? Some people call the nudity-allowed clubs “milk-bars”, but that place got-around it by serving chicken/no booze.
The fact that they had bartenders/served alcohol at the club that MG worked at is enough to tell me that she wasn’t dancing naked for money. It sounds to me like they were trying to copy Hooters with the name Lookers?

I Googled Frank’s Chicken House (LOL) and it seems to be open still.

Incidentally, in south Tennessee, just over the state line from Alabama, there’s a club called Big Jim’s Boobie Bungalow.

Look at the way Joe talks to her, and treats her when it comes down to sex. Do you think he would talk that way if she was not a “dancer” in the past and as she says a “teacher” he doesn’t respect her at all and still sees her as property.

I worked as a food server in NJ years ago. Tips are reported as extra income. The State requires that employers base the amount of tips earned, by taking a percentage of the amount of hours they work. Therefore if someone works the same hours each week, the tips will be likely the same amount. This is just a guesstimate and the servers are encouraged to add more when filing their taxes. The state is aware that this is not the actual amount that employees are actually making, but it is a way for them to collect what they can.… Read more »

This is a load of crock. I was a bartender in nyc and nj. My best friend’s dad owned part of a strip club in ny. All of this looks so contrived and badly done. The bottom line is that someone invested in her boob job, and she did not work for two months at a bikini bar like she said. If she is spending a year serving drinks in this club, then she is dancing on the side. That is what most of those girls do. This could be a ploy to make us viewers get riled up for… Read more »

Bloop! Why would your boss pay for a bartender’s boob job if they weren’t getting any return from it. They would pay for a strippers boob job because that make her and his club money (when customers keep coming back).

These ppl are not very smart because they can’t even lie correctly. LOL!

I know this may ruffle feathers but I think Roxy has been intimidated or threatened to do this…if not she’s just tired of the negative backlash and wanting to appear unbiased. I say this b/c a few weeks ago when MeGo claimed she could prove she only bartended Roxy tweeted (and RT’d PKHair et al) that she anticipated that MeGo would try to falsify documents and warned her that falsifying tax documents was illegal. Now MeGo shows these bogus documents w/ more holes than swiss cheese and Roxy just accepts it as truth…I’m not buying it. Either she was intimidated,… Read more »
