By Joe Dziemianowicz

Call it realty bites, because BravoCon 2023’s first panel of the day on Friday, Nov. 3 started with a session of realtors versus renovators at Caesars Forum in Las Vegas.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

The panel featured Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Million Dollar Listings Los AngelesJosh Altman and Shahs of Sunsets Mercedes “MJ” Javid.

Moderator Jenny Pulos, who’s known for Flipping Out and the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen theme song, which she performed for the live crowd as she descended an escalator to the stage, posed this provocative question: Which Housewife would make the best realtor?

From there, Joe made a surprising confession. Read on for details.

Joe Gorga Thinks Melissa Gorga Should Make a Career Change

Joe didn’t pause and looked directly at his wife to answer the question: “I think Melissa Gorga would.”

“He wants me to get into selling real estate,” said Melissa. “So, be afraid.”

“Let’s go, let’s open an office,” said Josh.

“I’m more into the decor, the design, like the architecture, figuring that all out. But I eventually maybe when I'm done with reality TV...”

Asked to look beyond his spouse, Joe said Kenya Moore, of The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Melissa concurred. “I think she would walk in there full glam and force you to buy it,” she said. “You would have no choice by the time you left.” 

But Mercedes chose to differ. “I don't think Kenya has the patience to be a realtor.” 

Josh’s take on the hot topic?”I feel like a lot of the Housewives are also realtors. There's at least a handful, no?”

His fellow panelists said nope to that. 

“Here’s the thing,” Josh added. “I think they're all bosses. Here's the thing in real estate, everybody's got their own style. So I feel like if I spent some time with a lot of them, we could turn them into just killer real estate agents. Yeah, because they’ve already got the attitude.”

Jenny said, “They just need to be Josh-ified.”

That quip was met with a round of cheers from the panel, along with the suggestion that Jenny trademark it.
