On Sunday, Melissa and husband Joe Gorga met with fans at a book event in at the Coral House in Baldwin, New York. It's the first time since Melissa debuted her new blonder locks in public, which she shared with the world on her Instagram this weekend. Melissa also got some quality time with fellow television personality Jay Gotti, who came out to support the author.
Despite some controversy over her book—one website claims it condones marital rape—Melissa continues to defend its tone and subject matter on Twitter. On Monday, she tweeted:
"I told him if he was going to build me a house, I was going to build him a home" #LoveItalianStyle if you read, it's a book filled w/love!

In the meantime, Melissa continues to strengthen the bonds between her family and the Giudices. She recently shared that her daughter Antonia continues to have play dates with Teresa's daughter Milania. In fact, the two little girls have started doing cheerleading together.
