Former Employee Accuses Joe Gorga Of Being Broke!

May 1, 2012 |By Continue Reading


Uh oh! Looks like Joe Gorga in is a bit of trouble! And when I say a bit I mean a lot! Many of Joe Gorga’s former employees are accusing Joe of not only being broke but building unsafe properties for undercutting costs!

Joe Manno was Joe Gorga’s former employee and is a veteran of the construction business. He tells Star Magazine that Joe ignores safety in order for things to be cheaper. Gorga goes as far as to telling his employees to leave deadly black mold, lead paint and more! This caused Manno and several other employees to speak out against Gorga.

Joe Manno says, “He is supposed to remove any kind of hazard before any construction begins. That’s the law. The whole building should have been gutted, but he just didn’t want to do it. “I saw little kids running up and down the hall of one of the properties and I thought to myself these poor kids… they have no idea. I’m not going to keep my mouth shut so guys like this can hurt people just to make a buck.”

John Prevete is another one of Gorga’s former employee’s and he claims that Gorga owes him $70,000 and accuses him of being broke! “Nobody showed up for work, because he’s broke.” He adds that Joe Gorga failed to pay the electricity bill.

I bet Melissa is slapping herself in the face for making a comment last season saying “we pay for our bills!”

Does anybody believe for one second, that Melissa’s latest ~cough~ song is number 5 legitimately on the R & B download list on i tunes? How many copies of the song @ .99/download would Joey and her hobbitt sisters have to buy to make her song make the charts. Let’s be serious, we know that she is not selling more copies of her song that Usher and Justin Beiber for crying out loud. So how do they manipulate the system? They buy $10,000 worth of downloads.

Regarding the mold and lead paint issue. Is there some agency that could get involved with that? Some environmental agency or attorney general of NJ or something? I don’t know much about that stuff, but surely there is some place that should be contacted to investigate that. Mold and lead paint are deadly.

Joe “flips” houses for a living. amiright? As soon as i saw the Shore house I wondered if it was a flip and they showed it simply to “keep up” with Teresa and her Shore house. I guess if we see it on the market soon (or already on the market) we will know the truth!

Serious allegations! If it pans out that it’s true, then I can’t imagine how the tenants feel about it.

I read on reality tea that “one of Joe’s former employees, Joe Manno (is everyone in NJ named Joe?) told Star Magazine (via their print edition) that the developer is ignoring safety in order to cut costs – even telling employees to leave deadly black mold, lead paint, and cancer-causing asbestos dust in old factories he converted into apartment buildings.”

Asbestos? Yikes…hopefully for the kids and their families this is not true. 🙁

I could be very wrong but I read somewhere that the house Joe and Melissa lived in actually belongs to a construction company and that it was up for sale. When Joe and Melissa realized they were going to be casting members on RHONJ, they actually moved into the house. I don’t think it really belongs to Joe. I could be very wrong.

JanShe

@Rosealie Marie – Gorga recieved the mortgage for a constrution loan. It was supposed to be sold, then Gorga claimed that he convinced the bank to change it into a personal mortgage. Then it was reported that a sizeable balloon payment would be due to the bank sometime this summer. If I remember correctly the balloon payment is due in July.

Say What??
Guest

See , i had been dismissing all these stories because I heard they converted the construction loan (which Joe got to build their dream SPEC home) into a personal home loan with a bubble payment being due back in December. So, the home and the mortgage is actually theirs now but they have a huge monthly payment.

What is true here? I dont know anything about realestate!

Parents, children are all being damaged, and it is beyond being repaired on TV – it needs to be resolved privately w/in their family.

I can’t believe how Team Giudice I’ve become. I really respect Teresa for going out there and WORKING. When times got tough, she got out there and starting supporting her family. It’s pretty easy to see that no matter how terribly either Joe treats her (and they both seem to have zero respect for her) she is utterly devoted to the two of them. The way the Manzo’s and Laurita’s have treated her is rediculous too. They’re allowed to insult her intelligence, marriage, and children behind her back and yet they expect apologies for things Teresa has said publicly (and… Read more »

Annabet, you aren’t the only one who has started to think more favorably of T. for all the reasons you stated. She has claimed she has made a lot of changes in her life and deserves a chance to prove it. It may take a while, but if she is sincere, it will prove out. The others have definitely just gone beyond the pale and are achieving the opposite of what they wanted to do — no wonder Caroline looks so haggard: her plans have been thwarted, and we all know that is NEVER acceptable!
