RHONJ stars Joe and Melissa Gorga had big plans to build their dream home in Franklin Lakes, NJ, but a new report reveals that the Gorgas have moved backÂ into their Montville mansion, where lived when they began filming the show.
Melissa and Joe entered into a lease to purchase agreement with Kai Patterson in 2013, and they started construction on their new home. But the tenant later claimedÂ heÂ discovered thousands of dollars in repairs that were needed when heÂ began the home inspection.
The Gorgas were renting a smaller home in Franklin Lakes while they waited for their dream home to be built, but earlier this year Joe attempted to evict Patterson based on the claim ofÂ non-payment of rent. The judge denied Gorga’s request.
The land where the Gorgas planned to build their new home is now on the market for $1.2 million,Â RadarOnlineÂ reports.
Patterson has moved out of the mansion,Â and because Melissa and Joe were stuck with the bills they have moved their family back into the home.
Montville Neighbor Alex Glushanok tells the site that the Gorgas introduced themselves to residents in the neighborhood and informed them that theyâ€™d be filming on the street.
â€œWeâ€™re anticipating what is going to happen,â€ he told Radar. â€œWe donâ€™t want there to be disruption with trucks, traffic and cameras. But nobody asked our permission so thereâ€™s no point worrying about it now.â€
Melissa was excitedÂ to reveal on Instagram that her family was back home in Montville and says she’s never leaving again.
