Was she a stripper? Was she not a stripper? It depends on who you ask and truthfully, do we really even care all that much? Probably not, it’s just curiosity, right? I know. Anyway, so on the last episode a (ahem) chance meeting between evil Teresa Giudice and a man claiming to be Melissa Gorga’s former boss proved to be, educational. Angelo claims Melissa danced for him for nearly a year at a club named Lookers. He also had to throw in there what a great moneymaker she was and how sad everyone was to see her ditch the Lucite heels for good (probably). Teresa feigned horror and disgust at even hearing the news and it went downhill faster than a stripper sliding down a pole.
Angelo eventually walked up to Melissa at a fashion show to exchange pleasantries and her reaction resembled a deer in headlights. She admitted knowing him but said she couldn’t place where they had met. After the episode aired Melissa is rumored to have bunkered down at home with her family and now fellow housewife, Kathy Wakile is going to bat for Melissa as she says,
“She wasn’t really a dancer,” Kathy tells the website in an exclusive sit-down interview. “She worked in a club and she was kind of like a Hooters girls, a hostess, a bar maid. She wasn’t a dancer. And even if she had been it doesn’t matter because I know her now and she’s a great mom, and wife and they have a beautiful life. She wasn’t a murderer. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it,”
While Kathy gently tries to spin things in another direction she does entertain the idea that Melissa could have danced and if so it’s not the end of the world. Do you agree? It was about a decade ago if Melissa did dance, should it be held against her now after her life has changed so radically? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
