Melissa Gorga Talks About Joe's 'Big Scam' First Date

"I fell right for it," the Jersey 'Wife admits.

Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga

The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Joe Gorga certainly knows how to woo the ladies. For his first date with future wife Melissa, Joe invited her to his place for a nice home cooked meal.

"He wanted to make me dinner, which I later learned was a fake dinner! I found out once I moved in with him; I realized that he ordered it from the Italian place down the street," Melissa spills to The Examiner.

Mr. Charmer didn't just hide the takeaway evidence, he even used kitchen props. "That night he put it all in pots on the stove as if he made it himself. It was like a big scam and I fell right for it," the "Rockstar" singer 'fesses.

Of course, flattery doesn't hurt, either. "He also had an artist do a lot of paintings on his wall and different artwork displayed and told me he was going to have an artist paint my face on his walls," the 'Wife recalls. "It was kind of cheesy."



But it worked! Now happily married with three kids, Melissa says of her hubby, "He's very passionate. When he's mad, he's mad and when he loves, he loves. He's probably the most passionate person in the world."

What's happening in Joe and Melissa's world right now? Keep up with the North Jersey power couple using our Tweet Tracker.
