Melissa Gorga Admits She Wanted Book Controversy


Melissa Gorga is still addressing the controversy surrounding her book, Love Italian Style, and she recently sat down with VH1’s The Buzz to discuss the book and The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Gorga admits to VH1 that she wanted “controversy” to get people talking about her book. Melissa even compared herself and her situation to Miley Cyrus, saying,  “She wanted controversy, her plan worked!”

“The book is about putting your marriage first. I think it’s about loyalty, it’s about honesty. It’s about respect,” Melissa says. Melissa also says viewers of RHONJ can instantly tell that her and Joe Gorga “back each other up.”

Melissa also revealed that she was wearing the “peace panties” Teresa Giudice gave her for her birthday. “It was a little strange,” Melissa said of her sister-in-law’s gift. “But it was a nice gesture.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
