Melissa Gorga is opening up about plastic surgery, Real Housewives, and health and fitness. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star recently shared about the plastic surgery that she’s had done over the years in a commercial for Fiber One, along with Real Housewives Sonja Morgan and Porsha Williams. According to Page Six, Melissa also thought about getting butt enhancement surgery but said her husband, Joe Gorga, wasn’t into it. Melissa shared that she had breast implants when she was in her twenties, and had a nose job after she started the RHONJ. She’s into fitness and has been doing a lot of “squatting.”
Melissa had to be open about her nose procedure after then co-star, Jacqueline Laurita, said on the show that Melissa had done four nose jobs. Melissa recently shared with Glamour magazine, “If I’m being brutally and totally honest, I think [I wanted to get a nose job after] watching my first season of ‘Housewives.’ When you see yourself back on TV sometimes you say, ‘Oh, I didn’t know I had a little lump in my nose.’ My nose was definitely from suddenly going from being a Housewife to being on TV and in magazines. I was like, ‘I never noticed that. I think if I do that little tweak, it’ll make me feel better.’ And I did it and was happy with my results.”
Melissa also said that she had ideas of what procedure she would have done next, but her husband Joe wasn’t into it. Melissa had been seeing booties on social media but Joe wasn’t feeling it. She said, “I’m seeing a lot of butts on Instagram. But my husband’s not into it. I was like, ‘fine.’ I’m just so sick of squatting.”
She’s being honest about whatever she has done. Melissa shared, “I think it goes with the territory of being on reality television. There aren’t many secrets, and you kind of know that getting into it. Anything you’ve done in your past is coming out, and whatever work you’ve had done is probably going to come out also.”
Melissa also opened up about the pressure to be perfect. She explained, “It’s natural to feel pressure. I mean, even if you’re not on reality television. Right now Instagram and social media have brought so much pressure to everyone. I think you have to learn how to balance it. For me, it’s about teaching my daughter that, you know, it’s just a picture. It’s not reality with a lot of that because I think people set up situations to make it look like they’re in paradise when they’re just sitting in their backyard with some props.”
I think Melissa looks gorgeous! I don’t think she even needed a nose job, but if it makes her feel better about herself then that’s great. I think she looked good when she started, and I think she looks good now. I’m all about people doing whatever makes them happy. I think it’s nice that Melissa is opening up about everything. I’m super excited for next season of the RHONJ! Season 10 – here we go!
