Kai Patterson Vacates The Gorgas Montville Mansion

Posted on Oct 21 2014 - 11:27am by Nancy


Every long road has an end and the tenant from hell saga seems to finally be coming to an end for the Gorgas.

Real Housewives of New Jersey” stars, Joe and Melissa Gorga’s tenant eviction case has finally broken new ground. After a long arduous court battle, Patterson has conceded and moved out of the couples Montville mansion.

“It’s done. I moved out,” Kai Patterson told RadarOnline. “It’s a relief.”

The RHONJ stars, claim they rented Kai Patterson their Montville, NJ home for $20,ooo a month in a rent-to-buy arrangement for the $3.8 million purchase price. According to the Gorgas, Kai Patterson defaulted on the agreement when he failed to pay his rent. According to court docs, Patterson’s rent check bounced in April, then he failed to pay rent in May and June.

Patterson has said his dispute with the Bravo channel stars arose because they failed to make promised repairs on the mansion after he paid $25,000 for repairs in lieu of a security deposit. Patterson has cited numerous problems with the house, including plumbing and heating issues, a leaking ceiling and beavers living in crawl spaces.

The Gorga’s attorney responded to Patterson’s claims by calling it a smokescreen for the court to elude his personal obligations.

According to Patterson, he vacated the premises on September 26th which he occupied for eight months.

Patterson made the following statement:

“The purchase agreement was terminated and we worked it out,” he said. He [Joe] defaulted on conditions related to the lease and purchase agreement. He wasn’t ever going to write me a check so the only way I could recoup my deposit was to get it back in rent.” “I didn’t want to purchase [the Gorgas’ house] anymore,” he said. “I don’t need to bash him [Joe]. It’s a closed chapter of my life.”


The Gorgas have maintained their desire to move back into their Montville mansion once Patterson vacates. Stay tuned.

    Have to admit I don’t mind the Gorga’s as RHONJ cast goes. They seem pretty honest about things, like not being able to afford to build until they sold their home etc. They don’t seem to play the whole delusional “oh we’re just downsizing as a business move” game.

    • WestCoastFeed

      I like the fact that they have been very low key this past season and have just centered their story line on their own personal lives as a loving couple. And they have stayed out of the drama as much as possible.

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        Me too. They seem like a pretty fun pair too. Would be interested to see them in a season without Teresa or any other OTT drama.

      • Sick_Pleasure

        My theory on why they are low key? Their house of cards is crumbling and they can’t declare bankruptcy for fear of running into the same problems Joe and Teresa ran into. Remember? Joe Giudice taught Joe Gorga the business. I doubt they can afford the mortgage on the Casa de Beaver. Next up…foreclosure ? If I was their lender s I would be scrutinizing every inch of their mortgage applications!

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          The only ones who claimed Juicy taught Joey were Teresa and Juicy, which Melissa said Joey hated hearing. I honestly don’t think Joe Gorga followed the Juicy Model for Making Money. He said early on in the show that Juicy was lazy and didn’t like to work.

          • Sick_Pleasure

            Even if they have not committed mortgage fraud, there is no visible means of support for the lifestyle they are leading except for Melissa’s Bravo paychecks. The garbage truck, no way. If it was raking in the bucks it would be front and center in the. Bravo episodes. What better advertising?

          • I agree with this 100%

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            TBH I have no clue what income they have other than the show – he did have some apartments he owned and was developing in earlier seasons? I think they look like they have scaled back a bit – that house they are renting is nothing special. I can see them moving back to their old house and trying to make things work there. Everyone is probably afraid to be seen spending on that show now 🙂

          • WestCoastFeed

            They owned an entire block of buildings in Paterson.

          • Where did this info come from? I don’t believe they own property.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Since I am still having computer problems, I am not going to try to google this, but my memory is that the judge told Kai Patterson that he had to get out and gave him a date to comply.

    now what…if I were them I would be a wreck…that mansion has to cost a fortune to run…..no wonder Joe didn’t fix anything they were probably just breaking even……lesson don’t ever do a lease purchase deal…lower the price sell as is and get rid of the money pit….I hope they are saving and not spending…didn’t seem that way when they were leasing a Bentley…they don’t even have the money to build the new manse……

  • Raine Woman

    Who care about Kai Patterson. What happened to the beavers?

    • HAHAHAHA!!!

    • WestCoastFeed

      He took them to his next rental scam.

    Looks like Ms Marco will have to go back to bartending at the bikini bar!

    I would like to see them move back to the mansion and take Teresa’s girls, joey g’s parents and keep all the kids together. Mellisa could take the girls to school and keep them all together. They would have to put a lot of past grudges behind them. Even Joe Guidice could live there until he go to prison.

  • What people and the media are do no understand, is the complaint the Gorga’s filed misrepresented the amount they claimed they were owed. The amounts they represented they were owed, started at $80,000 in the articles published in July 2014 and the initial complaint they filed, which was misleading. By August and four (4) court appearances later, they claimed the amount was over $510,000. When I realized the repairs of the more than 37defects found in the home inspection were never going to be repaired, I withheld making any payments towards the purchase, and the contract we executed between us provided me a credit of my $25,000 towards rent.

    The Judge ruled in my favor, ruled that I paid the rent, and denied the Gorga’s the $510,000 in false claims. The Judge ruled that I could continue renting the home if I continued to paid the rent for September 2014, but I excessed my option to terminate the lease and purchase agreements, because of the conditions of the property.

    Most of the defects within the property were not visible or did not exist at the time I entered into the agreements to lease and purchase the home. The inspector stated some of the defects were covered up prior to the execution of the agreements, and others developed while the house was unoccupied between September 2013, and February 2014.
