Melissa Gorga’s household just got a little bit bigger. At the end of the season finale of Real Housewives of New Jersey, the Love Italian Style author’s latest update was that she hired an au pair.
Melissa, 40, revealed that she hired an au pair, who is expected to move in with the Gorga family. The reality star shares three children with Joe Gorga — sons Gino and Joe, along with daughter Antonia.
With the live-in help, the mother-of-three will now have more time to focus on Envy, her Montclair-based boutique. The store sells fashionable, high-end designer tops, dresses, shoes and accessories.
“Melissa Gorga’s eye for fashion and style truly reflects the boutique, as she hand picks pieces from an array of emerging designers to prestigious fashion forward brands. With that in mind, you will be sure to find something for almost everyone,” the shop’s website stated.
“Quality, style, and unique choices are top priority, but second to our customer service and the impeccable experience,” the boutique’s page continued. “She, and her team of fashion stylists are talented, creative, energetic, and knowledgeable. At Envy the atmosphere is vibrant, lively, and one you will be sure never to forget. For the experience alone, one should give it a look. The Reality is – Gorga Delivers!”
During the RHONJ season finale, Melissa also stirred up old drama by bringing up the infamous hair-pulling incident during a party. Danielle Staub previously told her that Teresa Giudice egged her on to pull Margaret Josephs’ ponytail. Teresa confirmed the information to her fellow housewives. “Danielle said she was on the fence and said, ''I don't know—should I? Should I?'” Melissa recounted. She looked at Teresa, 47. She added, “And then you said, '’Do it.’”
“I remember her saying something to me,” Teresa replied, as her friends' jaws dropped. “I was drinking and everything happened so fast.” The Standing Strong author said that she felt bad about the incident, and hoped the segment wouldn’t wind up part of the finale.
Melissa insisted otherwise. “They are going to use it,” she said, referring to the camera crew for the reality show. Teresa subsequently flipped off the camera and threw her drink before she shoved all of the drinks off the table and ran upstairs in a fit of rage.
The first of three Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion episodes will air next week on Bravo.
