Melissa is a fun-loving and sassy Italian from New Jersey. She and her charismatic husband, Joe Gorga, have been married for 11 years and have three beautiful children -- Antonia, 10, Gino, 8, and Joey, 6.
Melissa defines what it is to be a modern housewife. Known for having an eye for style, she successfully launched a jewelry line called the Melissa Gorga Collection with multiple sell outs every time a new line is introduced. With her youngest off to school, Melissa is able to put her fashion and design know-how to use as she opens her first clothing boutique Envy by Melissa Gorga in Montclair, NJ.
This season Melissa is learning to balance family, friendships, and career, while doing it all with her own personal style.
