THE REAL Housewives franchise made household names out of several of its cast members.
Along with Teresa Giudice, Caroline Manzo, and Margaret Josephs, Melissa Gorga also rose to prominence for appearing in the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Who is Melissa Gorga?
Born on March 21, 1979, Melissa Gorga is an American reality TV star from Toms River, New Jersey.
In May 2011, Melissa began starring in the Bravo franchise RHONJ.
Since then, she’s been a regular cast member in the series and has appeared in over 100 episodes.
Aside from her television tenure, she’s also ventured into music and released her first single On Display in 2011.
In September 2013, the Housewife’s first book Love Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage was made available everywhere.
On November 16, 2021, Melissa joined fellow Bravolebrities Kenya Moore, Kyle Richards, Cynthia Bailey, and LuAnn de Lesseps for the Peacock spinoff The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip.
While teasing what fans can expect on RHUGT, she shared with Cosmopolitan: “This is definitely something that the fans have been begging for over a decade, just for Bravo to put us all on an island together and see what happens.
“It’s like a love letter to the fans and it’s just so different. Before we even got to the island, there was drama on the plane.

“You know what, better than that, there was drama when we were still in our own cities and just talking about the trip.”
She added: “I was just curious to see, like, how everyone was going to mesh together.
“You’ll definitely see some moments between Teresa and I that go back to, like, me getting on this show.
“There are moments between all the Housewives with the other girls from their cities.”
What is Melissa’s net worth?
After more than a decade of reality TV stardom, audiences have questioned Melissa’s net worth.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, she amassed an estimated fortune of $3million.
This reportedly places her ahead of fellow RHONJ alums Danielle Staub and Teresa Giudice.
However, Melissa’s wealth is ranked behind that of Margaret Josephs, Siggy Flicker, and the Manzo sisters.
