The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 premiere definitely gave us a lot to talk about, from Teresa Giudice's homecoming to Jacqueline Laurita's return to newbie Siggy Flicker's facelift. But the one image we're not going to be able to get out of our heads for quite some time is that of Melissa Gorga's husband Joe casually stripping naked to take a shower, which was all caught on camera.
Don't get us wrong; we're not exactly complaining about this. But we are curious to know how Joe has the confidence and bravado to put himself on display like that. Melissa explained it all during the RHONJ premiere after show following The People's Couch's Julie Goldman and Brandy Howard's compliment of the size of Joe's, uh, pixelation. "Don't say that in front of him because he's obviously so proud, and that's why he just, like, lets it all hang out," Melissa gushed.
Joe's sister Teresa seconded that during the after show. "He likes to show off. Obviously, you can tell," she said, adding that her daughter Milania Giudice also likes to play it up in front of the camera.
If you couldn't tell that from the episode, that was made abundantly clear by Joe on social media, as he celebrated the return of Tarzan, his nickname for his penis.
Clearly, lots of people were happy to see Tarzan again as Joe was a trending topic on Twitter Sunday night, along with #RHONJ.

It's easy to see that Melissa loves Joe with or without clothes. However, next Sunday night's new episode of RHONJ shows that there may be some trouble in paradise. Catch a sneak peek of the drama to come, below.
