It’s no secret that The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Melissa Gorga likes to unwind with a glass of red wine every now and then. And even the driest bottle is made sweeter when she gets to enjoy it with her husband, Joe Gorga, at her side. After making it through another day, Melissa and Joe took a moment to enjoy the fruits of their labor, sharing an adorable couples’ photo to Instagram on August 10.
“Only the strong survive,” Melissa captioned the photo of them casually enjoying their beverages alfresco, adding wine glass and pink heart emojis. “I love you [Joe]. Wine for [two] please.”
Several Bravolebrities raised a glass to the couple in the comments section, including RHONJ’s Margaret Josephs and Jackie Goldschneider, as well as The Real Housewives of New York City’s Ramona Singer and The Real Housewives of Miami’s Larsa Pippen. “Love [you] Gorgas!” Jackie wrote, adding clinking glasses and red heart emojis.
Though running her Envy boutique and hosting the Melissa Gorga on Display podcast keeps the mom of three booked and busy, intimate moments such as this are part of her and Joe’s strategy to keep her family close. “We eat dinner with our kids together every night,” Melissa recently told New Jersey Family, also sharing her favorite local date-night spots. “Nothing comes before our family and keeping it as regular as possible.”
She also has to remind herself to “put the phone down and stop checking emails” from time to time. “I’ve learned to stop and put it down to spend time with my family on a Sunday or after dinner, when we’re talking for that hour, when everyone’s home after dinner, before homework and bed,” Melissa added. “I’ve learned how to juggle a little bit of everything and just give a little bit of me to everything that I do all day long.”
