Exclusive: Melissa & Joe Gorga Have Sit-Down With Penny Drossos-Karagiorgis


Melissa and Joe Gorga filmed a scene for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, last night, and it took place at a restaurant we’ve seen before on the show. Chakra in Paramus is where Dina Manzo and Danielle Staub had their infamous sit down in Season 2. Joe and Melissa met with Penny Drossos-Karagiorgis at Chakra last night to have a sit down about the accusations about Melissa Gorga. Penny is allegedly the one that has all of the information about Melissa’s past and was involved in the rumors Melissa had an affair with Bryan “Bulldog” Bowen.


Photos captured by Richard Formicola from Bergen.com show what looks like an intense conversation between Penny and The Gorgas.

A source close to the situation tells us EXCLUSIVELY, “Joe Gorga, along with Melissa’s encouragement, wanted to meet with Penny to find out when and why Teresa was asking Penny about Bryan ‘Bulldog’ Bowen. Joe wanted to know if Penny approached Teresa or if Teresa approached Penny with questions about Melissa’s past.” The insider continues, “Joe thought he would rattle Penny and get her to bad mouth Teresa by telling Penny that Teresa told him and Melissa that she isn’t friends with Penny. Penny did not fall for the Gorga’s antics, she told them if there was an issue, she would take it up with Teresa.”

When the conversation turned to Bulldog, Melissa denied everything. Melissa said she “doesn’t even remember” Love Majewski (VH1 Mob Wives). Turns out, Reality TV can be a small world! “Love and Bryan go way back, and have been friends for a long time. When Melissa lived with Bulldog she used to like to play ‘dress up’ in Love’s designer clothes, sometimes failing to return them when she was done. Now, Melissa says she doesn’t know who Love is. Melissa also said she never lived with Bulldog, and she denied everything and everyone Penny brought up. Penny didn’t argue, because she can prove everything she has said,” the insider reveals. “Melissa even denied having first seen Joe Gorga in Cancun! She has given interviews on RHONJ admitting she first saw Joe in Cancun,” the source explains. “It was bizarre, but Penny didn’t fight with them, she just left it open ended with Melissa denying every single thing.”

“Melissa is now on record denying everything that can be confirmed by third parties. The question now is if Bravo will reveal the truth about Melissa or if they will do what they did in Season 4 and make the storyline whether or not Teresa set Melissa up,” the source added.

I have a feeling this story has just begun… stay tuned for what’s next!
