When it comes to gender roles, there are definitely differing opinions between Melissa Gorga and husband Joe Gorga. And as an empowered business owner, Melissa is hoping to instill in her tween daughter, Antonia, that same sense of ownership in her future. "I've always been very independent — and just because I fell in love with someone that kind of took care of me and I didn't have to run around and go to work anymore, it didn't mean I didn't want to," the Envy boutique owner shared in this week's The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 After Show.
