Melissa Gorga Defends Controversial Book, Says It Was Taken Out Of Context


Melissa Gorga is defending herself amidst the controversy surrounding her book, Love Italian Style. When a report stated the RHONJ star was advocating marital rape, E! asked Melissa if she has any regrets about what was in the book. “Not at all,” Melissa said. “I stand by what I said. I truly believe in everything I said in it.”

“Men, I know you think your woman isn’t the type who wants to be taken,” Joe Gorga wrote in one passage. “But trust me, she is. Every girl wants to get her hair pulled once in a while. If your wife says “no,” turn her around, and rip her clothes off. She wants to be dominated. Women don’t realize how easy men are. Just give us what we want.”

But Melissa is standing by her husband’s remarks and saying they were taken out of context. “I think if you just read the one line that Joe said you might take it the wrong way,” she said. “But continue to read and you’ll see where it belongs.”
