Melissa and Joe Gorga‘s marital woes are more than just a storyline for the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The reality tv couple’s marriage struggles will be playout on season 11 of the show; however, an insider reveals that the drama isn’t just another storyline.
Melissa and Joe have reportedly been fighting non-stop as Melissa’s career continues to grow and grow.
“She’s distracted with work and doesn’t have time for Joe,” the source tells Star Magazine.
As a result, Joe, who has previously complained that he needs to “release his poison” daily, aka have sex, feels neglected.
“He isn’t one to hold back,” the source adds.
It also doesn’t help that Melissa is rumored to be getting close to another man, as seen in an upcoming RHONJ preview.
The RHONJ couple is trying to work out their issues for the sake of their family and three kids, but a source hints that Melissa may be done.
“She’s been with Joe most of her adult lie, and the thought of leaving him has crossed her mind more than once,” the source notes.
Even on the couple’s recent vacation to Miami in February, they were reportedly on “two different wavelengths.”
I’m sure Melissa and Joe have their fair share of ups and downs, but I don’t see either of them walking away from their marriage anytime soon. I think it’s all growing pains and Joe needing to adjust to Melissa being more than a Housewife who stays at home with the kids and cooks and cleans.
Season 11 of RHONJ airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
