Melissa Gorga is keeping it real when it comes to her marriage and her body.
“It’s not easy,” she tells ET. “I always say marriage isn’t easy. We argue all the time. But we both have the same end goal, I think, and we both love our kids … love family life. We’re the same, we’re compatible.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her husband Joe have been married for 13 years and share three kids together – 12-year-old Antonia, 10-year-old Gino, and 7-year-old Joey.
“I think you have to marry someone who wants the same things you do,” she adds. “We just want to be with our kids, go on vacation with our kids, and we’re partiers. So, we really are. We work hard, play hard. So, it works.”
However, marriage isn’t the only thing Melissa works hard at and admits that keeping in shape is part genetics but also part hard work and dedication.
“It’s a little bit of genetics, I’m not gonna lie,” she says. “But I do work out, five days a week. I’m there every morning. I drop my children off at school and I drive straight to the gym. So, I wouldn’t be so tight and fit, and I wouldn’t have structure in my legs [without that].”
“And I eat right,” she adds. “I mean, I eat whatever I want on Sundays, trust me, but I enjoy working out. I like looking good. For me, it’s, like, it’s not a choice. It’s a lifestyle: you wake up, you go to the gym, you brush your teeth. That’s it.”
I think Melissa looks amazing – especially after three kids! Whatever she’s doing is working! Melissa and Joe seem to have a great marriage and their marriage structure seems to work for them.
