It seems that a certain group of Real Housewives of New Jersey fans want Melissa Gorga fired from the franchise.
According to the petition, Melissa should be fired because she doesn’t “provide real-life content that the viewers are looking to watch” and because she is “not honest about her personal life.”
The petition reads:
MELISSA HAS BEEN A CAST MEMBER OF “THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY” (RHONJ) SINCE SEASON 3. SINCE THEN, SHE HAS NOT PROVIDED REAL LIFE CONTENT THAT THE VIEWERS ARE LOOKING TO WATCH. SHE IS NOT HONEST ABOUT HER PERSONAL LIFE (LIKE HER CHANEL COUNTERFEIT ITEMS, CHEATING, ETC.) SHE IS ARROGANT AND HAS NOT BOUGHT ANYTHING TO THE SHOW AT ALL. THERE ARE WOMEN IN NEW JERSEY WILLING TO SHARE THEIR LIVES OPENLY AND HONESTLY, UNLIKE MELISSA. FOR SEASON 11 SHE NEEDS TO BE FIRED. SHE IS TAKING UP SPACE AND IS NOT NEEDED. VIEWERS ARE OVER HER AND SHOULD NOT BE SUBJECTED TO FALSE STORYTELLING. JOE GORGA, HER HUSBAND, NEEDS TO GO TO.
WE THE VIEWING AUDIENCE DO NOT WANT MELISSA GORGA AS A CAST MEMBER OF “THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY” FOR SEASON 11 AND BEYOND!
Andy caught wind of the petition and laughed it off tweeting, “The fans = 12 people?” alongside the laughing-crying emoji and the waving hand emoji.
At the time of writing this story, the petition STILL only had 80-something signatures.
AllAboutTRH posted about this story on our Instagram Tuesday night and fans were baffled at why this petition was even created. In fact, many fans seem to enjoy Melissa on the show and don’t want her to go anywhere.
I have to admit I like Melissa on RHONJ even despite some of her fake and ridiculous storylines. I think Melissa just needs to cut it out with these clearly made up storylines about a long-lost sister and having another baby at 40. Instead, Melissa should just be herself and dig a little deeper for her storylines every season. I’m sure there are quite a few things viewers don’t know about Melissa but she has to be willing to share them with us.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
