(upbeat music) Please welcome Melissa Gorga. (audience cheering)
(upbeat music) Oh yes. We’re ready to go. (audience cheering) Hi, gorgeous! I have not seen you in a minute. I know! How are you? Thank you for coming. Of course. Hi! (applause)
(cheering) I love this outfit! It’s so easy when you’re you to just throw something on, with no undergarments. Little envy. I have a couple undergarments on, I was trying to cover– No you don’t. the nipples and everything No, pull over the crotch. Hold on, hold on. Yeah, uh-huh. Okay. I saw something. (laughing) Look, put your feet on those feet and lets– Okay. Uh-huh. (audience cheering) beautiful! Look, look. Uh-huh. Beautiful. Do you like? Yeah! Rene Caovilla. Well, congratulations on the place, I’ve never been by there but, so its still going on, the envy thing?
The Montclaire, Yeah.
Yeah. Yeah, thank God. That’s one of the best things that came out of the show for me, is really being able to open a small business and do something outside of the show. That’s what I say for all of you girls. Whatever your franchise is, that’s what I say, whether its a Vanderpump or you or NeNe doing something– Yeah, you need something– That’s what the show is for. You need to make something of it other than the chaos that it is. And the possible ripation of your marital situation. Right. Oh God, you and Joe are a hot couple, you’ve ridden that wave. Yeah, I mean listen– (audience applauding) How do you have three children? Were they all vaginal? I had three C-sections. Okay so its way down then? So its down there, I remember when she got, I was like, “real low, real low” Yeah, uh huh. Uh-huh (laughing) And you healed well. Thank you. She doesn’t have a bowel movement in front of Joe either. we talked about that,
Oh me God, I said– now we– (audience applauding) you don’t fart in front of him, you don’t have a bowel movement. No, I just don’t, Some things I like to keep private. I’m that girl, I just don’t do it. You know what, last time I met you, or last time we sat, I was married, and so I was saying how “what? Are you kidding me, Melissa? But now that I’m single and out here in these streets, I agree. Are you going to take my advice on this? I have a few bathrooms in my apartment. Here you go. I escape to the bathrooms with a lot of spray. Even the spray that goes in the toilet so that it doesn’t even emanate. You know what I’m talking about. but you get my drift here right? Yup. Yup. I like to keep that personal. Yup. Okay. I don’t think I’m wrong for that. And listen, being on reality TV– It’s hard though. Yeah, definitely. Listen, its not easy. If you have to poop, I literally have to go in a closet and slam the door. (audience laughing) You know, behind me and then spray the– uh huh. I love you. But I get it. Yeah. I mean, I just never did. I never started doing that, and he always works. He’s always out of the house before I am so– it’s easy
Yeah you got all day to fart. It’s (laughs). (audience laughing) (laughing) I can’t. Yeah. (laughing) Do you feel the show has tested you all’s marriage because all I see is cuteness. Every once in a while he’ll say something sexist to you but I find it sexy, because men– they’re stupid. Yeah. You know what I mean. Sometimes he says some really stupid things. I will say, like, “go cook” or something. I thought that we had, in the beginning, we were like, “we got this.” Everyone on the housewives gets divorced, no one stays, we got this, but as the years went on, I’m not gonna lie, it’s been a little challenging for us. We’ve definitely had arguments because I have to be taken out of the house so much now, I travel a lot now, he never was really comfortable with that and I feel like it’s tested us the last couple years. We’ve argued a lot more and I’m just being honest because I don’t want people to think its so easy. It’s not. Reality TV really does test you, who you are, your marriage, but at the end of the day, Joe and I have the same goals. We just love our kids, we want family, we want– that’s what we want, so– (audience appluding) Yeah We fight for that, and sometimes you can I mean, it doesn’t make it perfect, it doesn’t make it easy, but we do argue but we come back together, you know what, there’s love there. How old is your oldest daughter in the beautiful white dress? Oh my God, Antonia is 14 years old now. Really? Her boobs and butt are bigger than mine, Let me tell you something. I don’t even know where she got all of the boobs and butt from. Has Joe had to fight people off? I mean, she has a boyfriend, Antonia has a boyfriend. But its not someone that’s allowed to come over. It means that they talk on the phone and– Do they go to the movies? No. In groups, she’s always in a group, like they’ll go to a house party or, but never alone, its not like, “Oh my boyfriend’s coming over to hang out,’ Joe would start to convulse. Yeah. And then your youngest is nine? Nine! I have a nine year old, my little one. So I was watching you, your mother, and your two sisters and I have to say, you remember we were talking about on Hot Topics, Melissa over here, wants to have maybe another child, whether its through, she gets pregnant the natural way, or whether she has a surrogate, she’s 40 years old, everything snapped back, she and Joe still got the sexy going on. And my thought is, all right, a baby at 40 is fine for a woman who’s never had kids and still fighting the fight. Right But why would you want to, what if you don’t snap back like that? I know. I know. Well, I had already said that if I do decide to do it, it would have to be through in vitro and, because my tubes are tied, and I would probably use a surrogate. But we did– Do you have eggs in the Petri dish? I don’t but I’m in the process of, I’m going to freeze my eggs, just in case. Just in case. Just in case I ever– What does your 14 year old say about that? She thinks I’m nuts. I’d be pissed! Yes, she’s pissed! She’s like, no! Its kind of what has been talking me out of it. Just like my sisters, you saw my sister and my mother– Yes, I agree with all three of them! They were all like, “are you out of your mind? I’m looking at you through the TV, I’m fighting with you but I realized that in one week you’d be on the show so then I can fight with you on the couch. (audience laughing) What are you doing? All right. I know. I know, I know. (audience applauding) I know, I have it set up so good now, I work so much now, I need to just, I’m looking into it. And you’ll see how that ends up and what I decide with all that because we go through the whole process on the show. But its a real thing when you have to let go of that part of your life. No it’s not. You like it? Mm-hmm. You’re happy to let go? You really want to change Pampers? I mean I really– You want to breast feed? Not really, no. I don’t want that part. You want to express? (laughing) You want to stay in town and not do your work because you got to take care of a baby because Joe is out driving a cement truck over to the mall that he just bought to feed the whole family? To feed the whole family of five, yeah. Yeah No, its really something that I Just… Melissa. Okay. I know. I saw you say this and I was like, “all right Wendy.” I was like– No! No, 40, you could still have a baby but just, if you already have your kids– Well a lot of people do, a lot of people do but… Yeah. You don’t need this anymore. I know. What is Gino going to say? Gino freaks out. Gino is like, “What? I don’t want to hear no crying baby!” That’s what Gino says So as I’m saying. “And I don’t want to split my inheritance.” (audience applauding) And they’re not even to that point. where they think, “All right, Mom and dad, and we live in this mansion, we got a nice lifestyle, and we gotta split our inheritance with another one?” I thought they would be so excited, they all looked at me like I had 10 heads, nobody was excited, it was not happy news at all. So, All right. There’s that. Let’s move on. So, Teresa and Joe are split up? Yes. How do you feel about that, in terms of your sister in law, the girls, and the whole family? Of course everyone knows its super sad for the girls. Obviously Teresa held on so many years, for the girls. I think everyone was holding on, and to see what the outcome was going to be with the deportation. They don’t even live in the same country anymore. He gained all that weight back too. I think he’s probably eating good in Italy. I’m going to assume he’s eating some meatballs over there but I haven’t seen him, I haven’t talked to him, just through the phone if he calls and I’m by Teresa, that’s it. I don’t really have a relationship with him. I mean, even though he and Joe are brother in laws, they were friends before any of it. They were, they were. Does your husband talk to the other Joe? No. They don’t talk. They really don’t talk. If the other Joe called you collect, do you say “I Accept”? Of course. Yes. No, of course. I mean, if he’s calling me he’s got something to say, I don’t know… Yeah, I would accept. Of course. Listen, I’ve known him for a long time too, he’s family to us. That’s my nieces’ father. And they’d die for him. They love him. You know how it is, Daddy’s Girls. They’re daddy’s girls. By the way those girls have really risen to the occasion. They have. Teresa’s daughters. They really have. Yes. They really have. They have to. They had to. Well, no, a lot of girls don’t have to, they go wayward and then they blame their parents for why they’re in jail or whatever they’re doing
They’re good girls. They’re really good girls. Yeah, they really are. They really are. They’re good girls, they held up through it all, and its time to move on, that’s it. I would love to play cupid with Teresa. I’d love to hook her up with– Do you like the pool boy? I love the pool boy, he’s a close friend of ours. He was the best man at my wedding! Wait, wait, now hold on now. What? He’s the best man at my wedding! That’s Joe Gorga’s best friend. That’s his best friend. I gotta tell you something, if I had a choice between him and Joe, the other Joe, You going for Tony? Is that his name? (laughs) Tony. Yeah. All day. Oh, you’re comparing? (audience applauding) Tony likes young chicks. But how old is Tony? Tony is, I want to say, 47. Well, Teresa’s age appropriate to that. Oh yeah, they’re the same age. I think they’re the same age. So you think he’s going to break her heart and go for somebody 22? They’re not dating. They are not dating. All right, break it down. They’re not dating, they’re not dating, they’re both going through, Tony is in the process of getting a divorce also. I don’t walk that way with my friends, (laughing) believe me, you. It’s two friends that are just leaning on each other because they’re both– Mm-hmm, that’s a hard lean. (laughing) I mean, he’s cute. He’s really cute, Tony. So who’s he dating? I think he’s just dating around (laughs). I’m not trying to call Tony out over here. Look, I really like black Dolores, a lot, also. Oh, do you love her? Yes I do. She’s very sweet, she’s a very very sweet soul, she’s a good person. All you girls are like, ” Margaret, the older one,” “Margaret, the younger” there’s one that I don’t really know though. And that’s the one
Which one? with the blonde, behind Margaret. Jackie. I don’t really know her.
It’s Jackie. Yeah. Jackie is awesome. Not her. I mean, that’s Jennifer. What do you think of this? Tell me what you think of this. Well, I think that Jennifer was wrong. Okay. I feel like when you have a birthday party for kids, is that what you all were fighting about? Yeah, well she threw a birthday party, Jackie threw a birthday party for her child– And had pizza and Kool-Aid or whatever. And pizza, cake and there was a there was a whole– And then the other one got all snobby, like, “where’s the good food for the adults?” Nobody was checking her at that restaurant in the Hamptons. You checked her hard, though. I had to check her. I was like, who calls someone out on the way they give a birthday party to her– I don’t know but you read her real good. She was so rude and– I was uncomfortable watching you read. Yeah, she says– You went in hard. I went in hard because she deserved it! Right? (audience applauding) It was so rude. You guys come on tonight? Yes, tonight! What are we going to see? Okay, we’re going to the jersey shore, who doesn’t want to see the jersey housewives go to the jersey shore? Okay. You know the Jersey Shore? From there? We get a little wild, we get a little– At Toms River We go to Point Pleasant. Okay, okay. Yeah. Point Pleasant. We go to Jenkinson’s, you know. Yes, yes. My old stomping grounds. Are there any fights? Yeah, there’s some truth though. There’s some crazy truth that’s going to come out tonight about relationships.
