The Posche Fashion Show drama rages on for the Real Housewives of New Jersey!
And a new report today by the Huffington Post’s Rob Shuter is adding fuel to the fire. What is clear is that during the Tuesday night fashion show, there was an attempt by one or more parties to expose Melissa Gorga as an alleged past stripper.
A source told Reality Tea yesterday that Kim DePaola was the one heading this attempt with some help from her new BFF Teresa Giudice. The Huffington Post is however claiming today that Teresa was not behind the expose but rather Bravo producers who had the owner of the strip club come to the fashion show. Even worse, the article is claiming that Melissa did indeed used to be a stripper — something Melissa is still denying.
“The ladies were taping a fashion show at Posche,” an insider states. “Teresa [Giudice] didn’t want to go because she’s completely over the fake Bravo set-ups; however, no one knew what was about to happen. Melissa [Gorga] was nervous that ex-Housewife Danielle Staub was going to show up, but it turned out the surprise guest would be much more damaging.”
Teresa The source continues: “Bravo’s surprise at the fashion show was for Melissa: her ex-boss at Lookers, the strip club she used to work at. No one knew him, no one knew he was coming — although, of course Bravo had a microphone on him — and Melissa ran away from him and refused to film with him,” a witness at the taping says. “The producers made Teresa talk to him to ‘hear him out,’ so his accusations would be aired on camera, but Teresa stopped him mid-story and told him to not talk about her family and left.”
A new source today however tells Reality Tea that Bravo producers were NOT the ones behind the attempt to expose Melissa but rather Kim D. with the help of Teresa. The source states Bravo originally wanted to have the reunion on the 27th — the same night as the Posche Fashion Show — but Kim D. freaked out and convinced the higher ups to move the date promising there would be some air worthy drama.
Twitter user @RIONJ1 told Reality Tea the following: “A fact is a fact. [Melissa] used to work as a dancer at Looker’s Gentlemen’s Club in Elizabeth. Her former manager bought tickets to the show and brought it up on camera when he came over to introduce her. She was paranoid and called Joe Gorga and told her “she was being set up” and parroted that to everyone else. She just assumed Teresa was in on it because she still hates Tre.” RIONJ1 adds that Melissa’s former manager is the one who paid for her boob job.
The Huffington Post article goes on to add that Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa continued their twitter battle offline following the fashion show fiasco and that Jacqueline, who believes Teresa was in on the set- up, was the one who leaked out a photo to the press of Joe Giudice having dinner with another woman.
“Jacqueline’s parting shot after she hung up the phone was to text Teresa a photo of [her husband] Joe and [a] mystery lady at dinner and said she was going to leak it to the press to hurt Teresa,” an insider claims.
The above paragraph is pretty doubtful as Joe was photographed having dinner with the mystery lady while the fashion show was going on. So it’s highly unlikely Jacqueline was the one who snapped the picture and then leaked it to the press.
Teresa The Huffington Post “source” however claims Joe wasn’t cheating on Teresa and that Teresa knew about the dinner with the mystery lady. Uh Uh.
“Teresa’s laughing about it privately, because she knew about it already. Joe had told Teresa he ran into the girl, a family friend, the night when he went out for drinks with his buddies,” claims the source. “The girl has a boyfriend, and I’m pretty sure Joe wouldn’t carry on a big affair at TGI Fridays in Clifton.”
Immediately after the Huffinton Post story was published, Melissa once again denied the story tweeting, “I like rob but this is so untrue.” And when a fan stated the obvious which is that the story likely came from Teresa’s camp, Melissa replied: “You think?!?” Our original source yesterday also stated “Melissa was never a stripper” so the stripper mystery continues…
