Real Housewives – Liars and Fake Storylines
Real Housewives of New Jersey tomorrow will have Joey Gorga having a fit over some tweets. He’s shown yelling at Terea and throwing his drink against the wall. Apparently we’re to believe that the tweets were from Penny – Johnny the Greek’s wife – and somehow Teresa is to blame. Here’s the thing, it’s all BS.
Timeline – They flew to Arizona March 16, 2013.
The Milania Hair Care Party was almost a month before – around February 20th (documented in this old blog).
Two weeks after that confrontation, Melissa and Joe Gorga were caught having a sit-down with Penny Drossos – (I wrote it up in our March 2nd, blog see link here,)
To recap – MeJo confront Penny at Milana’s launch party, then have a secret sit-down with her a few weeks later sans Teresa and Bravo cameras. Then … on air and a few weeks later … drama erupts over tweets.
I checked the blogs from that time – nada, nothing, nyet about any unusual tweets from Penny, Johnny, or Bulldog. That’s not to say Penny didn’t tweet something – but it was not enough to catch my attention – that’s for sure, and I think I still was watching back then (since then I’ve ceased to care about this motley crew).
Bulldog was vociferous on twitter during the winter – well before this particular period of time. He never actually said Melissa cheated with him, but he did call her out as fake and a liar. Johnny the Greek was buddies with Bulldog on twitter during this time. He was clearly encouraging Bulldog to spill, but I got the impression both were looking to “sell” the story to the tabloids.
That never happened.
Johnny was also leaking stories about Penny becoming a new housewife – later downgraded to friend of a housewife (with paycheck) – later retracted to basically nothing.
About the time of the Milania hair care party, rumors surfaced that Teresa had distanced herself from Penny – allegedly calling her a “stalker.” Penny then cosied up to MeJo to get herself some air time (don’t quote me on this – I’m going on memory and gossip).
Meanwhile Johnny was self-imploding on twitter. He deleted his old tweets after being called out on BS, and went on a few twitter rants. He was very erratic.
So when Teresa tells Joe she doesn’t want to give Penny any further attention – she really means it. She’s really trying to distance herself from this colossal mess. But I suspect that MeJo were trying to flip the script on Teresa with Penny’s help. We’re too smart to fall for it. There are many people out there that want to expose Melissa Gorga. They don’t need Teresa’s help – nor does she have the power to stop them. That ball has been rolling downhill since Melissa joined the show.
Now AllAboutTRH is reporting that the final big fight between Joey, Jaq, Chris, and Johnny the Greek didn’t make the season finale. My guess is Joey cooked that one up as his “big scene’, but when Jaq got in there with her stiletto (allegedly) and Johnny the Greek filed charges – Bravo decided to drop it. I hope Bravo drops the whole lot of them – but that’s just my dream. A girl can dream, can’t she?
Vicki is a liar, a liar a LIAR
Who didn’t fall off their chair laughing when the “lost footage” of Orange County aired, and Vicki was documented as a full and outright, bald faced liar? Laurie Peterson (who much be just pissed about her edit this season) is calmly trying to expose Vicki’s cheating ways. She’s calmer than I’d be – you see Vicki has a habit of bragging about her cheating ways off camera, and then denying it on camera. Laurie mentions something about a Greek with bad teeth. Vicki calls Laurie a liar and filthy in her indignant, Vicki way. Laurie says – “we talked about it on the bus on the way to Whistler.” Vicki says – you’re filthy Laurie. And then Andy plays the clip of them discussing the Greek with bad teeth on the bus to Whistler. ROFL.
So now everytime I see Vicki acting all confused and indignant I think – “she’s lying.” Remember the scene where Brianna tells Vicki she got married. It turns out that RadarOnline got hold of a series of text messages where Vicki tells Brooks she’s filming that night with Brianna, and Brianna will tell her she got married. So that entire scene, Vicki’s indignation, shock and surprise, was FAKE.
On episode one of Tamra gets married again, Tamra and Vicki are tasting cake and Tamra goes over her maid of honor and bridesmaids. Vicki doesn’t flinch when she learns Heather has been asked to be a bridesmaid, and acks all shocked that Tamra has asked a guy to be her maid of honor. Then finally Tamra asks Vicki to be a bridesmaid. Obviously Vicki knew Tamra was going to ask her – otherwise she’d have been all pissy when she heard Heather was asked. She’s just like that.
So now that we know she a LIAR LIAR pants on FIRE and films FAKE scenes with over the top reactions, does it make us care even less???
Jungle Gold “When reality tv fails.”
I don’t know if any of you heard about or watched a show called “Jungle Gold.” Its about two miners from Utah George Wright and Scott Lomu looking for gold in Ghana. Its nonstop excruciating failure after failure from bad decisions. I’m amazed they made it to second season. Aside from poor decisions about finances, purchasing bad equipment and underhanded partners. Sooner or later conflict would arise among the militia, government or vigilantes. Its unfortunate but Africa is always in conflict. It surprised me that these guys would risk soo much for gold.
Despite failing the last two seasons Scott asked his father in law for money. Though his father in law pretty much knew it was a bad investment. He gave them the money anyway and was funding their operation for 2 months. They made a deal with an Australian land owner Dave 70/30 split. They provide the equipment and him the claim after forking over 50k. After nonstop equipment failure, wash plant striped of parts destroyed by flooding and an excavator on its last legs nothing stops them. Not even news of Ghana cracking down on illegal miners sending militia to stop these operations. Should have been their first clue.
The claim next to theirs was raided by rogue militia. All the miners were severely beaten and robbed of their money and gold. They had no choice but to abandon their claim. Before they fled their partner Dave shows up with bad news. No paperwork they are illegal as well. No surprise there I always felt that Dave was scamming them. In a last ditch effort tried to get them to continue their operation. The only wise decision Scott and George made they said no and left.
It only gets worse…… they are now wanted by the government. On the news their faces and show are broadcasted. They are portrayed as illegal miners and we are led to believe Ghana never allows foreigners to mine their land. The government is asking its citizens, police or military to capture them then later the film crew.
Now their situation is dire they are hiding out at one of the production crews house. U.S Embassy can’t help them just told them to leave the country however they can. Problem is both neighboring countries require visas to enter. The nearest international airport is a seven hour drive filled with check points. Their only option is to via helicopter fly in while the production crew take the roads.
On to the theme of their show non stop problems. They do land in the airport but now they have an issue. They are exposed and at any moment they will face capture. Their only choice is to hid out in the airport hanger till dark. They can’t leave just yet and are forced to stay a night at hotel. One of the members of production goes in to reserve a room. Unbeknownst to them the same minister that was rallying for their arrest is staying at that exact same hotel. The following morning a decision is made to split them up. Fortunately luck is on their side they clear all check points only a minor hiccup for Scott as he is pulled aside by customs. All board and take off safe and sound.
I have to give it to them despite constant failure and now threat of death/imprisonment they still keep going. They still have plans to continue but I highly doubt Ghana unless they have a serious death wish.
