  1. He looks like a show off and you just know he is a sleep-around hound who found a grateful, sugar mama divorcee. This house didn’t need a remodel. My heart feels for the little girls who, according to reports, broke away from him and ran to find their grandma, grandpa, and mommy. He was a stranger to them. Poor kids.

  2. This is a tragedy that could have been avoided if either of the two (the lady and her boyfriend) had had the good sense not to leave smoldering embers behind. It is sad that you have used this as an opportunity to malign a man. They are both adults. If you have an issue with their relationship, please blame them both. She is not a 16 year old, is she??

  3. The guy left the embers outside by a trash and then removed the girls from the 3rd floor to the second while firefighters were heading to the third per Madonnas screaming. In addition his construction work made the house like a match book.

    His terrible errors or bad luck caused all of this. I highly doubt she will ever speak to him again. I also hypothesize there will be lawsuits against him.

    Guy is bad news in every way.

  4. Mike Borcina is a “high-end” NYC contractor overseeing the renovation of a $1.7 mil waterfront mansion and he removes live coals from a working fireplace and puts them in a “paper bag” which ends up either in or near a mud room – ALL AT 3:30 AM. As president of permit holder Tiberias construction he not only allows his client and 3 young children to live in a dangerous active construction site – he knew or should have known the fire alarm system was inactive. If detectors were in place but not connected this could have given the client and her parents – by all accounts responsible and sensible people – a false sense of security.His narcissistic statements never mention Lily, Grace, Sarah, Lomer or Pauline. I am SO relieved he is taking care of himself and will be OK. I hope Madonna’s family is keeping this psychopath as far away from her as possible. One more thing – if “Borcino said he couldn’t recall exactly what happened after the blaze broke out” how does he remember “Mr. Borcina told fire officials he had tried to flee with two of the girls. But, perhaps in the chaos of the smoke and flames, the girls seem to have panicked and turned around, Chief Conte said. One of the girls ran back upstairs, and the other was found with her grandmother on the stairs between the second and third floors. ” ?

  5. I grew up w/Madonna Johnson, yes, really. I have known her since age 13. She is a self-made woman. In my heart of hearts I feel she did everything she could to get the kids out. I haven’t seen her since a HS reunion, but since this whole thing started, I have had a bad feeling about this boyfriend. As for her parents being in the house with the boyfriend, they were always more modern thinkers IMO.
    Madonna was popular in HS, but she was down to earth as well. She was not stuck-up like many of the popular crowd. I always saw her as being a leader and an individual. I really think she got caught up w/the wrong man.
    I can’t believe his comments, they were so self-centered. He needs to shut up and stay out of this. It is up to the Johnson and Badger families as to how this should be handled.

  6. Sounds pretty suspicious to me. Who emties out a fireplace at 3:30AM. NO ONE does that. You let the embers burn out in the fireplace. I agree with another poster, this is a big guy but could not grab two of the kids who he had in his grasp??? I don’t believe one word he said. I think he wanted kids and parents out of the way. Then he can marry and share the wealth of the mom. I feel so sorry for this mom. How horrible. Her world is totally gone. RIP little ones and parents. Fire and police should be investigating this guy a lot more than they are. And what is up with tearing down the entire house the VERY next day ater Xmas?? How is that done? Did he organize this with his construction business to cover up something else he did??? I hope this mom never speaks to him again…I would probably take my own life if that happened to all my children and parents…but before I went…someone else would be going with me….Just saying…WHERE is the dad in all of this. I know they are divorced, but you don’t hear much about dad. Prayers for dad also..SO sad. I hope they can survive this tragedy.

  7. I know someone that worked for M. Borcina a while ago, he had to quit because Borcina treated him like an animal, screaming and yelling constantly. My friend had worked for over 30 years in construction as a carpenter and project manager but had to quit after working only 2 weeks with Borcina complaining about saftey issues like not having a railing around an open staircase from one floor to another and being owed money which he never received. How could someone that is supposed to have so much experience in construction place embers in a bag and leave them in a foyer or against the house. He caused the lives of 5 people. I hope the father of the 3 beautiful girls takes legal actions

  8. Too much alcohol no doubt, played a part in this careless, tragic blunder.

    I am curious, if the parents did everything for the daughters, why were they divorcing? Seems like they were both good people. Bizarre Borcina, tatoos and all is the one who doesn’t fit this perfect picture.
    He looks like a convict. Really dumb ‘bad boy’ choice on Madonna’s part. Sad. Sad. Sad.

  9. I guess Michael Borcina was also responsible for killing their family dog, Pippi. Not sure if the dog was in the house but strong possibility.

  10. Humm “I have had a bad feeling about this boyfriend” did she bring him to your high school reunion??? and you failed to say where they meet eachother, could it have been in AA or maybe NA. whay is nobody bringing that up

  11. I have a friend of a friend of an uncle of a cousin twice removed form my great aunt side that worked for michael also. Well he said Michael paid very well

  12. I just read where Michael Borcina was quoted as saying they are trying to stay “positive” are you kidding me dude? This is a seriously sick man! How on earth are you staying positive you idiot, you have this hanging over your head, that all this is your fault? Who on earth in their right mind places burning embers in a BAG and then sets them against a wood framed house? and who doesn’t have working smoke alarms in the house with 3 children residing in it? And he was also quoted as saying he has spoken to Mrs. Badger and that they were both trying to stay positive, I was shocked as to why she is still even SPEAKING to this idiot bird brain! God have mercy on their souls.

  13. Exactly, she probably gave his a job because he needed the money and this way she could have him around all the time, the house did NOT need to be remodeled at all. This is a sad situation. This woman was a sugar mama catch for his broke show off self. She just wanted a boy toy and that’s what she got. The little girls didn’t want anything to do with this creep that’s is exactly why they broke away from him. If he is able to stay “positive” as he was quoted, there is something seriously rotten in Denmark! My gosh, I wouldn’t even be able to speak yet.

  14. Exactly, she probably gave him a job because he needed the money and this way she could have him around all the time, the house did NOT need to be remodeled at all. This is a sad situation.

If he is able to stay “positive” as he was quoted, there is something seriously rotten in Denmark! My gosh, I wouldn’t even be able to speak yet. This idiot construction BAD boy is bad news, he needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent, It doesn’t sound like he is not one bit remorseful for putting the embers in the bag. All he cares about is himself. It’s a total lie that he had 2 of the little girls, there’s no way. I thought that that the firefighters investigate fires, so why was it torn down the next day? There is no way that could of been investigated that quickly? Please, lets hope this idiot does not get away with 5 murders.

  15. does anyone notice his facebook pictures? all showing off type pictures, disgusting. She must of had a lapse in judgement when she chose to date this gold digger.

  16. Many commenters are so very close to the terrible motive here but no one has connected the last few dots.

    An experienced contractor would know better than to discard smoldering ashes as he did, as many have said. But that experience can also direct where to create the tragic accident. The top floor where the girls slept had the most damage? In structure fires there is the risk of “chimney effect” – air currents through walls that suck hot gases up as in an intended chimney. This is amplified by temperature gradient- hot air from below races up, cold from above pours down like a fountain to feed a fire with fresh oxygen. An experienced contractor would know this because construction codes require countermeasures like fire breaks – horizontal members in wall studs to minimize (slow) chimney effect possibly giving more time to escape or limit damage. On these points, he would well know the least risk locations (where he and the Mrs likely slept) and the most risky (a chimney effect from where he placed the smoldering bag, up to the 3rd floor). Bet is he and the Mrs on the second floor, slept where that damage is least. Again, note the first floor hardly damaged, the second floor more damaged at one end not the other, 3rd floor totally gone.

    So that speaks to means: his knowledge and the innocent looking act of cleaning the fireplace slbiet 3AM????

    Now motive. A few have hinted it: money. One commenter said it best – sugar mamma. But he’s got three people between him and her money: the daughters. Say he marries her with the girls alive. They’d be heirs to the Mrs’ wealth. With them gone, the husband is sole beneficiary. Now some will say wait, he’s not her husband. Wait for it. If investigators don’t nail this evil opportunist, the bells will be ringing. In fact, a commenter pointed out his “we’ll be fine” statement that made no mention of the girls or parents. This guy didn’t have wired fire/smoke detectors he installed online. He does with smoldering embers what no contractor in the wildest imagination would do. He does it at the oddest time – but maybe a Christmas tragedy and his accounts of heroism (no one in there to witness), he expects makes the Mrs all the more vulnerable ready to start a new life with him as hubby. Her divorce is pending so he’s removed the only other obstacles that would block his full access to her wealth and also her affections.

    Hope investigators are running this to ground. Not 100% certain but cannot be brused aside given all the suspicions surrounding this.

  17. Mr. Borcina is a sleez!! I knew him from a share house situation in which he was a womanizer and self centered!! He once cooked an Italian dinner for the entire house (to impress his date at the time no less) and he managed to burn the tomato sauce and undercook the meat! Fire is not your thing Mr. Borcina!!

  18. he paid his laborer $12 an hour and carpenters $15 TO $25. That is less than half the union wage in New York and did not have any type of health insurance for his workers

  19. Agree Borcina is an @$$ and I honestly think he’s to blame but, a lot of people are getting caught up in “facts” resented on a celebrity news and GOSSIP website. Did anyone notice how poorly this article was written? I suggest you find a decent news source before making such self-righteous comments.

  21. Diane, I believe the friend you speak of — the one who had a bad work experience with Michael Borcina — shared his experience in comments on another Web site (http://mommysdirtylittlesecret.com/2011/12/29/photos-survivor-michael-borcina-speaks-out-on-fire-that-killed-madonna-badgers-family/). Here are copies of his posts:

    I worked for Borcina in that house last year. After more than 25 yrs in the trades I never experienced anything like it. The guy was impossible to work for, nobody was good enough ( in his opinion ). I lasted 5 weeks. In that time I saw at least 15 highly qualified workers,either quit or get fired. Although I had no other employment I had to get away from the madness. A revolving door of workers some only lasted a couple of hours. There is a word for this type of individual psychopath. The authorities really should take a long hard look at this marginal individual. Dangerous on many levels

    Just a few more points.
    At the time I was working for him, he was not romantically interested in her (he was dating another woman), but he was interested in her wealth. Commenting to me that she is rich and if we (Tiberias Const.) play our cards right there is the potential for alot more work to be had.
    The other point concerning his character. Borcina would regularly steel from his workers, wage theft. Every week he shorted us our hours. In my case 4 to 6 hours.
    By the way I do not write these comments because I’m disgruntled.
    I write them because five people lost their lives.

  22. MJV, that is actually someone else, not my friend , but thanks for showing it to me, I also saw in the Huffington Post comments from other former workers of his all saying the same thing

  23. I’m sure they will be charged with criminal negligence, in my opinion this guy should be locked and throw away the key

  24. I pray to the Lord, that In the following weeks and months Madonna’s mind will be replenished with clarity and purpose so that she can pursue what is rightful by her mother, father, Matthew and their beloved children. Personally, I could not be at peace until I had investigated the slightest possibility of wrongdoing. While I cannot judge whether this is the case here, my instinct can’t rule this out either. Clarity may just be what is needed. God bless Madonna, Matthew and the family.

  25. I read that about staying “positive”, and it made me sick. How could Madonna stay positive? How could he when it was his fault?

  26. You people are very uneducated and need to find something more constructive to do with your time than to place judgement on people and situations that you have no idea of the underlying circumstances. Placing judgement on others often helps people take the heat off of themse;ves and their own faults, perhaps this is the only way you can deal with your miserable selves.

  27. I HAVE KEPT SILENT SINCE THIS MOST DEVASTATING OCCURENCE SIMPLY BECAUSE I WOMANS LIFE WAS SUCKED OUT FROM UNDERNEATH HER. MY OLDEST SISTER LOST THREE CHILDREN IN A 20 YEAR SPAN AND ANOTHER SISTER LOST ONE, SO I UNDERSTAND THE LOSSS OF CHILDREN AND HAVING THREE OF MY OWN MAKES ME SHIVER TO THINK ONE MIGHT CLOSE THEIR EYES BEFORE I DO AS MY LATE MOM WOULD ALWAYS SAY.
    2004 AND 2005 MICHAEL BORCINA CAME TO WORK FOR ME BECAUSE I WAS STRICKEN WITH CANCER, HE PRESENTEDE HIMSELF VERY PROFESSIONALLY AND WE HAD ANOTHER SOMETHING IN COMMON (I THOUGHT). WITHIN TWO DAYS MY CREW STARTED CLASHING WITH HIM, THEY WERE COMPLAINING OF HIS AGGRESSIVE COMMANDING OF THEM, HE WAS ABUSIVE AND PLAYED THEM AGAINST EACH OTHER SO TO GATHER ALLIES IN HIS QUEST FOR TOTAL DOMINATION. I PAID HIM MORE THAN I EVER PAID ANYONE AND GAVE HIM A BRAND BEW VEHICLE TO DRIVE BACK AND FORTH TO MANHATTAN. AFTER MEN QUITTING ON ME AND THEN HIM BRINGING SOME MEN WHO WORKED FOR HIM HE BECAME VERY SNEAKY AND DEMANDING. HE PILED UP NEARLY $6000 IN PARKING TICKETS, STOLE OVER $140.000 IN WORK FROM MKE. DESTROYED A JOB THAT EVENTUALLY THE HOMEOWNERS CAME AFTER ME FOR. WHAT WAS WORSE IS HE DID THOSE JOBS WITHOUT PERMITS OR LICENSED ELECTRICIANS AND OR PLUMBERS. WHEN IT ALL CAME TO THE END HE WAS NEVER ABLE TO HUMBLE HIMSELF AND SAY THANK YOU WHICH BY THAT TIME HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN SAYING HE’S SORRY. HE DIDN’T AND STILL DOESN’T HAVE A HUMBLE FONE IN HIS BODY. MISS BADGER MADE A BAD CHOICE IN HIM AND IS SUFFERING NOW FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE, AND THOUGH I TRY DESPERATLEY TO FIND THE zen IN ME TO FORGIVE HIM THERE IS A PART OF ME THAT WANTS TO HELP CONVICT HIM FOR THIS CRIME. ALL OF MY MEN TOLD ME TO GET RID OF THIS GUY, HE’S A TERRORIST. THEY CALLED HIM “BALDHEADED MIKE THE NATZI”! THE TOOLS HE SAID WERE “STOLEN” AMOUNTED TO THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AND I KNEW HE DID IT BUT I WAS SICK AND LIKE MADONNA BADGER DIDN’T SEE THE OBVIOUS. GOD BLESS THOSE CHILDREN AND THEIR GRANDPAPRENTS, GOD BLESS YOU MADONNA BADGER!

  28. Wow – I cannot believe the enormous magnitude of issues that you had with Mr. Borcina, while dealing with your own serious illness at the time. The thing you and Madonna have in common is that neither of you did an extensive background check on this guy yet continued to let him run and ruin your business, your relationships and your lives in both cases. It’s hard to imagine any one individual can be totally responsible for such chaos, disaster and tragedy as in Madonna’s final outcome) without at least including the people who employed this man and allowed him into their lives and those of the other victims. There is a lot of evil out there in the world, some of it is highly intentional and the rest of it is not necessarily by design. None of us have the answers while we’re here but hope and faith and common sense and good judgement need to prevail until we are further enlightened one day. We all make choices is life, at least we are given the opportunity to do so, and when we are told as children not to hang around the bad kids and to find better quality friends, that level of common sense should prevail throughout our lives. Some of us are better at spotting it than others. And sadly, many are paranoid about everyone they meet to the other extreme letting good people out of our lives.

    As for both you and Madonna, you have a lot in common actually. Both were swindled and nearly destroyed by a person who does not have the level of scruples, work ethic or integrity that you both have . However, you both have done a lot of hiring in your lifetime, presumably through your work. It just makes me wonder why you were not able to let this man go, before he was allowed to commit so much time and energy into ruining your contractor and customer relationships? Even if you were ill, your employees came to you and you chose not to listen to them. I suspect Madonna, a very smart business woman, had seen some telltale signs w/ Mr. Borcina on numerous occasions. Yet, she did not relieve him of his duties and then allowed him to hang on and destroy yet another life.

    This man needs a lot of help and is no doubt a very troubled and disturbed not to mention conniving and evil guy. He has burnt too many bridges to not say he has no ill will or malicious intent – clearly he does. But sending him to jail is not the answer. He is already ruined for life financially, emotionally, psychologically and no one will ever hire him again unless it’s to do work that is on the sly. Unfortunately, when one reaches a certain age, over 50, and has burnt so many bridges and destroyed so many lives, there really is little chance of turning it all around without a serious intervention – either divine or behavioral. I’m not sure either will ever happen to this guy so maybe on some level this will give everyone some peace of mind. We all carry an albatross through life, even if some are more apparent and transparent than others. Madonna had it all and now she has lost the most important component of her life; the only people she loved more than anything else. She too will have to find a new path in life in order to sustain. Life can never go back to what it once was for most of us after dealing with such catastrophic loss. I just hope that she finds something out there to hold her together. Whether it be an organization or her work. We all need a purpose in life. Without it, we are forever broken.

  31. I am watching Madonna’s interview on Piers Morgan. The entire story sounded suspicious from the
    very first. The lack of smoke detectors, like someone else said, removing hot ashes. You let them burn
    out in the fireplace. How convenient that her Father did not survive. Sad, I hope the girls fathers demands
    a better investigation. Some people should not be allowed to have children.

  32. Last Christmas eve it was Madonna’s daughters and parents and this year the Newtown, Ct . massacre.
    What is happening to/in Connecticut?
