Melissa Gorga Clarifies 'Housewives' Drama
May 23, 2012
The Real Housewives of New Jersey reality star Melissa Gorga has faced plenty of rumors in the past couple of months, from her alleged inability to pay her mortgage payments on her home to drama with her friend and sister-in-law Teresa Giudice. In an interview with The Insider, Gorga set the record straight on it all.
The news that Gorga was selling her home in Montville, New Jersey sparked rumors that she could no longer afford to live in her luxurious multi-million dollar home, which she said couldn't be farther from the truth.
"Joe (husband) is a builder. This is what we do. We buy and sell and build and sell. He custom-builds homes all the time," she said. "We love Montville. We love the school system here but Joe wants to be back in Franklin Lakes...It's not the we can't afford it...We've been doing really well."
Gorga also gave her honest take on fellow housewife and sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, who has had her fair share of circulating rumors as well. "It's not that she can sit there and claim victim because it's just what she's doing and what she's saying," she said. "So, it's hard to feel really bad because it's what she does and what she says."
As for her personal relationship with Giudice, Gorga admitted that there is some tension between the two but she would like to eventually be on friendly terms with her. "I'm not going to sugar-coat it for you," she said. "We definitely have some things to work out but I am hopeful that one day we could all work this out and be together because it's just such a waste of time."
