Broke?

MELISSA GORGA: ANOTHER FAKE NEW JERSEY HOUSEWIFE !

We just had to laugh when we learned that Melissa and Joe Gorga are too broke to make their mortgage payments and THAT’S why they just put their New Jersey mcmansion up for sale for 3.8 million. It seems like all these Real Housewives of New Jersey are anything but real. According to Radaronline, Melissa and Joe were living in a modest $500,000 house with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths before she was cast on the show. Joe had built the gaudy mansion on spec, hoping to find a buyer. As a builder, he got an interest free loan for a certain period of time until he sold the house. When his wife was cast on Housewives, they decided to move into the big house so they’d look wealthier than they are. And they ran up a LOT of bills keeping up the image. Now the interest free period on the loan is over and they can’t afford the huge payments so they have to sell. We wonder if exposure on the show will make the house sell faster…

WHITNEY HOUSTON MAY BE BROKE BUT SHE’S FILMING A MOVIE

Whitney Houston’s financial status remains a mystery despite RadarOnline’s claims that she’s dead broke. Back in 2006 she was accused of being broke, denied it, and then held a giant garage sale and unloaded all her touring stuff collected through the years. Whitney IS a big spender and drugs are not cheap either. But she’s been through rehab and Whitney is filming “Sparkle” with Jordin Sparks – she plays Jordin’s stage mother. It’s a remake of the 70’s movie starring Irene Cara and Lonette McKee about a 60’s girl group in Detroit. Her people deny that Whitney is hurting money-wise, but we’ve heard that before. Hopefully her new film will set her on the right path.

ANNE HECHE DOESN’T ALWAYS GET WHAT SHE WANTS

Maybe Anne Heche WASN”T exaggerating last year when she claimed she was nearly broke and couldn’t afford to pay $15000 a month to her exhusband Coley Laffoon for spousal and child support. Since then she had a baby named Atlas with her new boyfriend James Tupper and her series “Men in Trees” was cancelled. She started appearing on “Hung” but money problems still haunt her. Recently she tried to purchase a two million dollar house in Hancock Park (where she once lived with Ellen Degeneres) but her loan was not approved and it fell out of escrow. She didn’t come up with the necessary cash for a huge down payment, so she lost it.

RUBEN STUDDARD'S BRIDE MIGHT BE HAVING SECOND THOUGHTS

Ruben Studdard’s new bride is freaked out by the news that her American Idol seems to have serious financial problems. Ruben, the second Idol winner in 2003, and his girlfriend Surata Zuri McCants met at a CD signing at Wal-Mart in 2006. He followed her all over the store until he got a date. They’ve barely been married for two months and it’s just been revealed that he owes back taxes and has liens on several properties. Ruben has no record contract at this time and it’s not known if he has the money to pay the nearly $200,000 in back taxes. Surata might be wondering what she’s gotten herself into.
