For years, Melissa Gorga has denied getting a nose job. She’s always said her makeup artist was excellent at contouring, but on this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, she finally addressed the rumors.
Jacqueline Laurita accused Gorga of having four nose jobs, and now Melissa is speaking out about those accusations. “Let’s be honest, it’s the worst-kept secret that I’ve had a nose job, but it’s my secret to tell, not hers,” Melissa told the Daily Dish.
So why did she keep it a secret? “It’s a personal thing,” says Melissa. “It’s not hurting anyone. It’s your own business. Some people like to say, ‘Hey, I injected this, tummy tucked this,’ and that’s fine, too. It’s something that’s personal to me. It’s one of the very few things that is personal in my life at this point.”
“I have children, and there are certain things I don’t feel like I need to blurt all over the world. That’s private, it has to do with me, myself and I. That was one of the things I wanted to keep to myself. Unfortunately, I had a crappy friend who has told the world for me.”
However, Jacqueline defended her comments, telling the site, “She never told me she had her nose done. It wasn’t like I spilled a secret or broke girl code, because she never admitted it to me. To me, it was just blatantly obvious, and I knew.”
Laurita said it was Melissa’s constant lying that got to her and she had to say something. “I have a lot of friends that never admit to [having work done], and I respect that, but when someone asks them if they’ve done something they say, ‘I don’t answer that question.’ The reason that it came out of me in the moment with Melissa was because when she was lying in my face. I looked at her and I had the flashback of every time Andy would ask her, ‘Have you had your nose done?’ and she kept a straight face and was blatantly lying. Instead of just saying, ‘I don’t talk about those things, think what you want,’ she was like, ‘No, it is contour.’ Like, that ain’t contour, honey.”
As for the accusation that Melissa has had four nose jobs? Melissa says, “There was definitely not four nose jobs. Four nose jobs? I would look pretty deranged, I would think. That is insane to say four, and I don’t like that the seed was even planted, because I think that’s wrong. You never know what’s going to happen in life. That’s why they say ‘friends come and go, but family is forever.’ And that is so true.”
