MAKE A STAND! LEARN ABOUT WHO THEY ARE AND BOYCOTT THE BUSINESSES THEY RUN! READ ON TO FIND OUT!
Our last article found here, documented the kosher “puppet masters” who put the show “Growing up Greek” on the air last night, This article will instead focus on the puppets themselves who make up the cast.
THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION WAS OBTAINED IN A COMPLETELY LEGAL MANNER AND CAN BE FOUND IN PUBLIC DOMAIN:
The first family we will cover is the Memisakis family, on the show there is Mike, Irini and Pete Memisakis, who goes to St. Petersburg college. The main focus we feel should be on the adults in the family since they really should know better than to mock our heritage.
Angelo and Georgia Memisakis own a successful restaurant called “Mama’s Greek Cuisine” at 735 Dodecanese Blvd Ste #40 in
Tarpon Springs which can be reached at +1
Despite Greeks complaining about the show, they felt this bad publicity would get their restaurant more attention. This is why they do not care what Greek-Americans think of the show, as they are convinced negative publicity will only serve to make them richer.
Some have been asking where some of the degenerate behavior seen by the kids on the show came from, and the head of the family Angelo Memisakis may provide a good explanation:
Angelo Memisakis, arrested once for domestic battery at his house located at 204 N Florida Ave in 2011, and a second time in 2013 for drunk driving. Angelo decided he was a “pillar of the community” and wanted his family to have center stage on “Growing up Greek”. He felt he would be the best role model and representative of Greeks in Tarpon Springs with his family making a mockery of Greek culture. Feel free to call his number at +1 (727) 942-1290 and ask him if any of the money he makes will go to help starving Greeks in Greece or simply to his own pockets.
Next we have the Koursiotis family:
The girl on the show is Ioanna Koursiotis, and like the Memisakis family they also are in the restaurant business. Ioanna’s mother Catherine Koursiotis is the patsavoura pictured below:
The day before the show aired, Catherine Koursiotis gave an interview arrogantly expressing her lack of regard for why Greek-Americans were so angry about “Growing up Greek”. She really did not care what any of those Greek people think, and why should she? She felt that the show can only bring in business for her Salon “CK Designs” at 1201 North Pinellas Avenue in Tarpon Springs. She also said the day before the show aired that people should not say anything because they have not even seen it yet. Well, now that people have seen it feel free to call her at the Salon at +1 (727) 937-4811 and tell her your opinion of the show.
Next we have Mike and Costa Koursiotis who run the family restaurant called “The Original Mama Maria’s Greek Cuisine” located at 503 N Pinellas Ave right down the street from Cathy’s Salon. Phone +1 (727)934-5678
Mike and Costa live in a world of Styrofoam Parthenon statues and cheesy laiko music, yelling “Opa!” as they light saganaki on fire for the amusement of non-Greeks down at their restaurant.
Costa who is the registered owner of the place lives at 1423 Meres Boulevard and like the others, he hopes this new show will bring them money and publicity, and to hell with what the other Greeks think.
Below is a list from a Florida Corporate Registry which shows what businesses are registered to what names in the Koursiotis family.
Sadly, these families above are not the only ones, this is merely a reflection of what is wrong with some people in the Greek-American community today. These people do not care about Hellenism, or what is happening to starving people back in Greece under the Junta of Samaras. They do not even care that other Greek-Americans are upset over their actions. The one thing they do care about however is money.
AND BECAUSE MONEY IS ALL THEY CARE ABOUT, LET’S SHOW THEM THAT OUR HERITAGE IS NOT TO BE SLANDERED AND MOCKED BY BOYCOTTING THE BUSINESSES THEY OWN AND SPREAD THE WORD. THIS IS SOMETHING WE ALL CAN DO IN ADDITION TO SIGNING THE PETITION AGAINST THE SHOW ITSELF!
