New Jersey Real Housewife Gorga Wants Out — Out of Her House, That Is
The show is “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” But maybe a better name would be “Family Feud.”
What else are we supposed to infer from the newly re-listed New Jersey home of “Housewives” star Melissa Gorga, 32, and her husband, Joe Gorga? The couple has priced their 13,500-square-foot house for $3.8 million amid speculation that Gorga wants to leave the Montville real estate market and head to the hills — Hollywood Hills, that is, to pursue her singing career.
I’m a builder. I custom-built the houses we have lived in and will do the same with our next one. We tried Montville, but it just wasn’t for us. We want to go back to Franklin Lakes, which is closer to where I work, and we’re looking at a couple of properties now.
When Joe Gorga says it wasn’t for us, that could be confirmation that his wife of seven years and mother his three kids has had it with his sister, Teresa Giudice, who also lives in Montville. The 40-year-old Real Housewives’ star has apparently tried to patch things up, saying that her stint on Donald Trump’s “The Apprentice” has made her re-evaluate the cat fights she’s engaged in with her “Housewives” co-stars.
But with this lavish listing hitting the market this week, less is going to be more when it comes to social gatherings among the extended Gorga family.
Meanwhile, the home that was built in 2009 is being marketed as a home fit for royalty. Hard to argue with that sales pitch, given the oceans of Italian marble, stucco and hardwoods that anchor this lavish 6-bedroom, 7-bathroom estate set on over 2 acres.
