Don’t get green with envy, but Melissa Gorga just celebrated not one but two major career milestones. 

How to Watch

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

The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member posted a carousel of photos on Instagram on Thursday, December 1, to “give credit” to the current employees of her Ridgewood, New Jersey, women’s clothing boutique, Envy by Melissa Gorga.

“I have to give credit where credit is deserved!!! I’ve been in business for six years! Best staff I’ve ever had!!” she wrote in the caption of her post, which featured three photos of the mom of three posing with four members of her staff. “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you... I appreciate these girls!!”

The business owner posted the pictures after hosting a “holiday party for [her Envy] girls” at Lefkes in Ridgewood. 

As RHONJ fans may remember, Melissa opened her first Envy boutique in Montclair in December 2015. The store has been featured on the show throughout the years, and she opened a new location in Ridgewood, which she said was “double the size” of her first store, in the spring of 2022. 

In addition to paying tribute to the women who work at her store, Melissa had another big reason to celebrate that same week.

On the day she held her holiday party, Melissa dropped the 50th episode of her podcast, Melissa Gorga On DisplayTo ring in the accomplishment, Melissa brought her husband, Joe Gorga, on as a guest. Their three kids, Gino, Antonia, and Joey Gorga, also congratulated their mom at the top of the episode, which Melissa said was “so cute of them” because they “never want to come on the podcast, really.”

The RHUGT alum admitted that having a podcast series was “out of [her] comfort zone,” but that she was “overwhelmed” and “very happy” to have made it to 50 episodes.

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