The event — which raised money for Friends Adoption, Clinic & Ranch — was also attended by the reality star's husband Joe, Tinsley Mortimer and Family Karma's Vishal Parvani and his fiancée Richa.

During the event — in which the TV personality also auctioned off a day of shopping at her boutique, Envy by Melissa Gorga — the brunette beauty dished all the details about what fans can expect from the highly anticipated upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey.

For starters, Gorga echoed costar Jackie Goldschneider’s recent statement (the writer previously told OK! that she was most surprised by “unexpected relationship drama” that went down during filming), noting, “I think the tables turn a little bit this season.”

"I think that relationships that were challenged last season .... turns on other people, so do I think there is a lot of relationship back and forth that’s going on,” the mom-of-three — who shares Antonia, Joey Jr. and Gino with her husband — admits to OK!. “There are also a lot of friendships that you would never think would be made, but then they ended up being friends."

"There’s a crazy... there’s a moment or two in there that I would say is as crazy as the table flip or the christening," she tells OK!. "If I’m saying that, that means season 12 is major."

(As loyal fans of the franchise know, Gorga's sister-in-law Teresa Giudice became a household name after flipping a table during an argument with Danielle Staub in season 1. Two seasons later, Gorga's husband — and Giudice's brother — became enraged at the couple's youngest son's christening during an explosive family confrontation.)

Gorga also opened up about Peacock's spinoff Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip — and revealed the fellow Housewife she happened to hit it off with.

“I was surprised by the people that I ended up being close with and that I loved,” Gorga tells OK!. “I feel like everyone was worried about Kenya [Moore] because she was going to bring high drama — and she ended up being my girl the whole time. Loved her so much.”

Gorga is starring alongside Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Kyle Richards and Teresa Giudice in Peacock’s Housewives mash-up, which will begin streaming on the platform on November 18.

In addition to her upcoming series, Gorga also tells OK! she has another project in the works: A fitness line coming out in time just in time for the holidays. "It’s going to be in huge retail stores like Ross, so I’m very excited about that," Gorga says, adding, it's "huge for me."
