Melissa Gorga has been making the media rounds lately. From Page Six, asking Mrs. John Legend to join the cast now to The Morning Breath show.
In the interview, Melissa rehashes how she got on the show, saying Bravo messaged her as she was Teresa’s sister in law. Obviously not mentioned were the rumors about her asking to join the show; however Melissa says joining the show has worked out as it opened many doors. The conversation then moved to girl crushes and Mrs. Gorga states that she would love to collaborate with RHOBH’s Erika Jayne; however the only girl that she would kiss would be la Reina herself, Jennifer Lopez.
Melissa rehashes how she met Joe and how he proposed (in case you have not yet read Love: Italian Style) along with the craziness of the past season. Melissa defends Margaret regarding the wreath ceremony and states she apologized many times. I think it’s safe to say that Melissa is officially #TeamMarge.
Danielle also comes up and Melissa states she is misunderstood and “weaker” than she appears. Melissa states she is on the Danielle train and I had no idea that Melissa thought so highly of her. Melissa is even going to be a bridesmaid in her upcoming wedding and I can just feel Bravo producers salivating at the thought of this.
The ladies talk new girl Margaret and Melissa admits that Jersey is the hardest to cast for out of any of the cities (something we reported on exclusively yesterday.) Our exclusive NJ source reported that the affluent local ladies don’t want to be associated with the show and that producers are scrambling to find new NJ wives.
Amber and the twins come up and Melissa described Amber as a ‘clubbing friend’ from High School. Melissa states that the season was confusing as she moved from the Manzos to the twins (honestly not sure what she meant by that.) Melissa says that she loves the Manzos; however no word on her feelings on the other ex-housewives.
The restaurant drama gets brought up and Melissa tries to explain what is going on (ie trouble with management.) She also reveals that Beverly Hills is her favorite franchise and that she may be doing new music as she does not take it as seriously as some of the other musical housewives.
The interview is pretty lengthy so if you are looking to watch the whole thing you can do so at the video below:
Overall I thought Melissa was pretty candid and answered every question honestly. She definitely seemed relaxed and in her element which always makes for a good interview.
What were your thoughts on the interview? Did any of her comments surprise you?
