Real Housewives of New Jersey's Melissa Gorga Has Her Own Lawsuit

So You Wanna Be Sued seems to be the theme for Real Houseswives of New Jersey's Melissa and Joe Gorga.



Currently, they're trying to evict their homebuyer from the property after not paying as promised. Or so the Real Housewives of New Jerseys Melissa Gorga exclusively tells Us Weekly in "Melissa, Joe Gorga Try to Evict Purchaser of Montville Mansion After Failed Payments."

Rachel McRady reports that when Melissa and Joe sold the house in August 2013 for $3.8 million, the couple began construction on their new home in Franklin Lakes. 

A rep told Us Weekly that a buyer entered a "purchase agreement with an extended close option for the sale of their Montville home." But the buyer isn't living up to the promise. 



"Bounced checks totaling $20,000 as well as failed to pay rent for the months of April, May, and June 2014" break the financial obligations. Repeatedly trying to reach the buyer didn't pan out. So "the Gorgas were left with no other choice, but to pursue legal action and filed a summons for eviction" because of continued carrying cost while the house is still in their name.

Melissa told Us she believes in giving people "the benefit of the doubt." However, that doesn't mean she's "going to continue to pay for a complete stranger to live in a multi-million dollar home."



Of course, there's always more to the story.

Reality Tea exclusively reports the buyer who initially wished to remain anonymous has lawyered up (Richard Koppenaal, Esq.) and has a strong defense. "Kai Patterson Responds To Joe And Melissa Gorga’s Eviction Attempt – With Repair Claims, Photos, And More" details a lot more than what Melissa told Us Weekly.

Kai Patterson's spokesperson tells the website that the rental/purchase agreement's been changed more than once to accommodate parties, so the Gorgas are purposely excluding information. Not to mention the Real Housewives of New Jersey couple’s inability to uphold the repair agreement that demands all problems be fixed within 15 days.

And the reciepts are all in photo and print for the world to see.



The questionable construction is a head-scratcher since that’s Joe Gorga’s livelihood and career.

For instance, "none of the bathrooms throughout the house have shower doors." Once the Gorgas reneged on fixing the problem, it's easy to why Patterson would be upset. Especially since the Jersey sellers didn't fix the master bathroom shower head, either. 

Of course, it's also important to have hot water—period.

The hot water heater was broken for the first month and was finally replaced on April 1, 2014—the same day the April's rent was due yet allowed no credits to the days without hot water. "The purchaser and his 79-year-old stepfather were without hot water" and forced to use hotel rooms to shower during the time. That’s not cheap if all you want is to clean off.



Plumbing seems to be a problem in all areas since they spent $250 to replace a broken faucet and used Gorga's construction partner. Unfortunately, the man skipped out on doing the actual work and Patterson had to buy the faucet and find a replacement plumber. 

Of course there’s also the broken sprinkler and lack of use of a guest bathroom at all. You know, little things when you’re putting out $10,000 a month in rent and $10,000 a month in mortgage. (One agreement states the rent was pushed back until October 2014 anyway.)



It’s also important to be credited when paying the Jersey sellers' unpaid water bill to the tune of $4,416.60 just so the water will be on at all. Hot or not.

Bizarrely, "beavers enter the house through areas not properly constructed and live in crawlspaces in the walls between the office" and make loud noises throughout the day and night. Who wouldn't be hard-pressed to withhold money when purchasing a house that has crawlspaces wide enough for beavers?



Raccoons are bad enough.

If Patterson paid a deposit of $25,000 “to be applied to the purchase price of the home and used to make the repairs,” the Gorgas may find themselves in some hot water of their own.
