Was Melissa Gorga a dirty dancer?

Angelo Voorhees, salon public relations manager and former owner of Lookers Gentleman's Club, claimed she danced for him while Gorga maintains she was a fully-clothed bar tender. 

Voorhees approached Teresa Giudice and Kim DePaola for DePaulo's "Posche" (her boutique) Fashion Show, and tells Guidice he knows her sister-in-law. When asked how he knew Gorga, he replied that she used to dance at his club.

"I've heard a lot of rumors about Melissa dancing, and this person kind of confirmed it," she later said, though she was surprised to hear the news.

Voorhees told AllAboutVRH.com, "She was very defensive of Melissa and said, 'Listen don't talk about my family like that.' She didn't like the fact that I mentioned that Melissa and I worked together. I apologized to her repeatedly and told her that I had no idea she didn't know. You know, I would assume she would know this about her sister-in-law."

The former Lookers owner approached Gorga and asked, "You remember me, right?"

Melissa made small talk with him then told the other ladies, "You know when you know somebody?"

In a tweet referencing Voorhees, Gorga posted, "Btw, I feel for him, I hear he has a major drug problem... Don't wish it on anyone.."

According to Voorhees, Giudice, who has been accused of a "set-up," was not involved in the incident and he said Gorga has contacted Lookers' employees telling them she was only a bartender and not a dancer. Voorhees, however, claims she was an exotic dancer for less than a year.

Earlier this year, The Huffington Post spoke to a secret network insider of the showdown.

"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...and Melissa ran away from him and refused to film with him."

Once the rumors emerged, Melissa took to her website and wrote, "This is 100% NOT TRUE."

Gorga said she was briefly a bartender at Lookers. "My outfit was a tank top, shorts and sneakers. SORRY, no bubbies there," she commented in a blog post from last year.

Larry Guarino, Gorga's former manager at Lookers Gentleman's Club in Elizabeth, N.J. confirmed Gorga's story last year to Us Weekly: "She was a bartender for a couple of months years ago, it was such a short time. Lookers was really upscale then too; it wasn't like she was bartending in some hole in the wall."
