Everything You Need to Know About The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Melissa Gorga

On the Season 13 premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, viewers got a peek at Melissa and Joe Gorga’s three kids. And mamma mia… they’re growing up fast! The New Jersey natives are the proud parents of Antonia (17), Gino (15), and Joey (12).

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

In an interview with E! News, Melissa shared an update on her soon-to-be college student. Yes, THIS spunky girl is about to graduate high school! Time flies in the Garden State.

“[Antonia is] turning 18 in August — I cannot believe it!” Melissa said. Previously, the boutique owner shared some exciting news on her daughter’s college search. The teen has been accepted to the University of Delaware, the University of Rhode Island, and Penn State University. 

“We are literally looking at colleges right now,” Melissa told E! “She’s really picking between two, I would say… Delaware and Penn State. She loves both of them, but we’ll see! Whatever she decides. We have a lot of Penn State alumni around us — my family, a lot of them went there. But we’ll see. She loves both.”

The Gorga family recently shared photos from their trip to Delaware, where they braved the rain to check out the university campus. 


Meanwhile, Gino is making his dad proud in the wrestling ring. Back in 2018, Gino won the Tri-County Youth Wrestling Tournament for the second year in a row — and he’s still going strong.

On February 5, Joe shared a video of his son in full “beast mode” at a match. “That’s my boy,” Joe wrote. “Just like his daddy.”

Melissa later took to Instagram with a “La Famiglia” appreciation post. Captioning pictures of herself posing with Joe, Gino, and her sisters Lyssa and Kim, the fashion buff wrote, “I am blessed in so many ways. I recognize that. And I cherish all of these people.”

Melissa went on to say, “Let’s continue to make beautiful memories in this beautiful thing called life.”
