Let's Discuss: Melissa Gorga Real Housewives of New Jersey - RHONJ

How Melissa Gorga Keeps Her Marriage — and Body — Strong

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.

Thoughts on Melissa’s interview? Do you think Melissa and Joe are the same? How do you think Melissa looks?

    This is reminiscent of that time the
    choreographer told Meme ” dance . Nevermind don’t dance”.
    Speak on your marriage ; nevermind lol

  • Pokémon

    TreCnt will be divorced soon

  • Kitty Foyle

    Wondering if Melissa’s comment: “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.” is from several years ago. Trying to figure out just exactly when she works hard. Last season, she was so stressed about opening the boutique which was causing problems in their marriage & now the boutique hasn’t even been open a year and she wants to take vacations, be with her kids and party. Now the restaurant that she really doesn’t want to work at. Every season it is a “new” & “improved” business for these two. Every few years, they put that ugly mansion up for sale. Honestly, it would be lovely if the real Melissa would show up & not the “re-done” Melissa.

      Don’t count on it, Kitty.
      She’s been spinning stories and rewriting history for years, because she’s just not interesting. At all.
      Notice the lack of comments on this thread? Every one is sick of her bullshit.

      • Kitty Foyle

        Totally agree. She showed her true colors the very first season & has been trying to reinvent herself since just to stay afloat. Sort of over the whole “Gorga” thing except for the father. He’s adorable & very wise.

  • luvs2ride

    After reading the last sentence of her interview, I sure hope she brushes her teeth BEFORE she goes to the gym. Yuck.

  • Pokémon

    TRex is jealous of Melissa and it’s clear why

  • Pokémon

    That’s why the criminal T Rex is jealous of Melissa

    • luvs2ride

      Because she exercises & claims to have the perfect marriage? I don’t agree with that.

      If Teresa wasn’t on RHONJ, Melissa wouldn’t be either.

      • Betty

        If Teresa wasn’t on RHONJ she would have had to go to jail at the same time as her husband. She got a break. No more breaks though. Next stop for Joe after prison, Italy. YAY!

      • Pokémon

        Agree to disagree

        • luvs2ride

          No problem ?

  • Marty

    Yawn! Hard to stomach a bottom feeder.

  • Srl83

    Yes they do seem to have a solid marriage but to me Melissa is very self absorbed that’s why I didn’t understand why she was trynna call out Siggy when she is the exact same way.. Did she forget about the dang sprinkle cookies??? It happened 7-8 years ago and they were still talking about it at the reunion.. hypocrite much??

    • Khipp

      Good point.

    • Amanda

      Mel has selective memory. I agree, she is so in love with herself it’s gross. Can’t stomach her.

      • Srl83

        agreed.. I was looking at her sideways when she was talking about Siggy overreacting to the cake throwing when if it was the other way around she would stroke out…

  • Betty

    Just another reason Teresa is jealous of Melissa. Being extra gaudy gave Teresa some escape from her jealousy for a little while until they got busted and went to …..PRISON. Bahahaha

    • Pokémon

      Nailed it

  • samael

    I would give M the direction:

    – cancel your plans to give your daughter the spousal rape book
    – stop criticizing the children’s dad – so you can be their friend
    As someone on this site posted – M is just an extra at this point

    • Betty

      The whole “marital rape” argument is so stupid. You’re really grasping at straws. Bahaha. The only one getting raped is Joe…in prison.

      • Kitty Foyle

        For sure “marital rape” or any form of rape is a stupid argument. No grasping at straws as “little Joe” said it & wrote it and according to Melissa is “old school” meaning what he says is gospel. Have a great day & continue playing Pokemon for you amusement.

        • Betty

          ???? What? Again, the only one getting raper is slow Joe in …….prison HA

        • luvs2ride

          It must be Betty you’re replying to. She’s obsessed with prison sex. Naughty girl!
          So glad she’s blocked.

          • michers

            Agree and I’m glad too

    • Khipp
      • samael

        horrible inheritance
