Joe Gorga has long prided himself on being a protective father, but how did he really react when he sat down with his daughter’s boyfriend for the first time?
The dad, who shares daughter Antonia and sons Gino and Joey with The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Melissa Gorga, appeared alongside Frank Catania on the November 11 episode of the Chicks in the Office podcast. He opened up about what it was like when he first got to know his high school senior daughter’s beau.
“He’s very nice. He’s actually a tall kid, like 6'4" or something, plays football,” Joe said on the podcast. Though he’s trying to be open and receptive to Antonia’s boyfriend, old habits do die hard.
“For me, as a dad, you look at [him] in [the] eyes like, ‘You son of a bitch. What are you thinking?’” Joe continued. “It takes a minute.”
In addition to making an effort to get to know the teen, Joe is trying to be as welcoming as possible to his daughter’s significant other.
“People [ask if I’m] old school,” he added. “Now I’m starting to say, ‘OK, you want him to come over? He can come over.’”
