Melissa Gorga believes she was destined for Real Housewives stardom!
In a new interview, Melissa claims that she would’ve been cast on the Real Housewives of New Jersey even if her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice wasn’t on the show first!
On the ‘Mention It All’ podcast, Melissa said: “it would be crazy to think that [I was the villain of the show]… I was a 31-year-old girl with an opportunity, Just like every other person in new jersey at this point!”
She explained that Bravo had contacted so many women in NJ to be potential cast members that she and Joe would have been cast on the show.
“I am not even going to lie; they’ve hit every girl up in New Jersey. I know people loved to say in the beginning, ‘Oh, it’s because of Teresa, or you wouldn’t be here,'” Melissa continued.
“I mean, Do people think that if Teresa wasn’t on the show and Bravo came to interview Joe and I- we wouldn’t have made it onto the show – but all of these other people would have? I just feel like people are so silly when they say sh*t like that,” she elaborated.
RHONJ will return for season 13 in late 2022 or early 2023.
