When Melissa Gorga Met Meryl Streep
The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation's star-studded A Magical Evening benefit gala witnessed one of the most unexpected convergences of celebrity in Hollywood history when Meryl Streep met Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Joe and Melissa Gorga! And we have exclusive details about their encounter.
That pic alone is worth a thousand whaaaaaaaaa's?
After posing with fans, the unlikely photo friends bonded over their shared New Jersey lineage. Sadly, for those of us hoping the Oscar winner was a closet Real Housewives fan, it turns out that she's never seen any of the Bravo shows. An oversight Meryl more than made up for by lavishing praise on Melissa's sexy dress.
Later in the evening, Melissa and Joe did run across some famous fans: Mark Ruffalo and his wife, Sunrise Coigney.
Turns out they love the Housewives and despite being initially wary, Mark and Sunrise quickly became Team Gorga over the course of the season.
