Melissa Gorga just turned 39 years old this past week and that called for a celebration! She celebrated by having a birthday brunch this weekend at hotspot Bagatelle in NYC! It’s a celebrity favorite for brunch and booze. (Bagatelle is the place that Ramona Singer went to with Bethenny Frankel in Miami on The Real Housewives of New York instead of going to the sand bar that Dorinda Medley had put together. Remember that drama?) Melissa’s husband Joe Gorga was of course there, along with some of her friends. Plus her sisters Kim Pirrella and Lysa Simpson and their husbands. They ate, danced, drank, enjoyed dessert and watched Michael Jackson performances happening. (This is all visible on her Instagram story.)
Check out her birthday dessert!
Melissa shared a bunch of photos and videos on social media. She captioned a photo, “Love them all.”
Last season we saw her birthday being celebrated on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Siggy Flicker had put together her celebration in Florida and bought her a beautiful cake. It ended in a fiasco with ‘cake-gate.’ Since cameras are now rolling for RHONJ, it’s quite possible that we’ll see another birthday of Melissa’s on TV. Margaret Josephs bought Melissa Gorga a lavish birthday cake this year. Hopefully this one won’t end up in another dramatic storyline. LOL!
I say let them eat cake! It looks like this year Melissa and Margaret are enjoying the cake, and proving that cake-gate is in the past. I’m assuming they had some sort of celebration for Melissa that will air on the upcoming season of RHONJ. I’m glad Melissa’s having fun and she picked a good spot to celebrate! I celebrated my birthday with brunch at Bagatelle in NYC a couple of years ago! It’s one of my favorite brunch spots, I love Bagatelle!
What do you think of Margaret buying Melissa a birthday cake? Thoughts on the cake-gate drama? What do you want to see on the upcoming season of RHONJ? Sound off below!
