Despite claiming that they pay their bills, sources are telling Star Magazine Melissa and Joe Gorga are not really living the lifestyle you seen each week on RHONJ. The source reveals that they are constantly borrowing money from staff, friends, and family and never paying them back!
Joe Gorga has been scamming for years,. He owes everyone money. And Melissa is on board. Joe’s the liar, and Melissa swears to it. Or Melissa lies, and Joe swears to it. They’re a perfect team.
Joe has been known to borrow money from everyone, including his staff. In one case, Joe borrowed $10,000.00 from a construction employee of his, who makes approximately $50,000.00 a year, and never returned the money he borrowed!
Joe never paid the guy back. All his employees hate Joe for what he did. He owes money to a bunch of them.
Worst of all Joe may have pulled the same stunt on his parents! According to Star, multiple sources have confirmed that Joe convinced his parents to sell their home in Paterson, NJ so he could use the money to help him fund the construction on his mansion in Montville. Joe moved his parents into a home in Wayne, NJ, taking out a $500,000.00 mortgage in both his and his parent’s names. Since then the house in Wayne has been sold, and Melissa and Joe have left the Montville house to build a new bigger and better home however Joe’s parents have still not been paid back.
Lastly, the source reveals when it comes to paying their bills Melissa and Joe have been known to bounce checks in order to maintain their public lifestyle.
We already know that she’s bounced checks, and she asks to borrow clothes for events. She supports her husband 100 percent, as long as she can drive around in those Bentleys and still have all her stuff.
I am sure the desire to maintain a lavish lifestyle is challenging, but if you can’t do it just don’t. What are your thoughts? Do you believe Melissa and Joe and faking their lifestyle?
