Melissa Gorga Also Has an Interesting Connection to Teresa Giudice's Pool Contractor

It seems Tony has been in The Real Housewives of New Jersey social circle for quite some time.

By Laura Rosenfeld

This season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, we learned that there's another rather handsome man in Teresa Giudice's life: her pool contractor, Tony, who she dated before she married Joe Giudice when she was a teenager.

How to Watch

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

And we just found out that Tony has a big presence in Melissa Gorga's life as well these days. "Tony is at my house five days a week," she revealed during her January 29 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. "He's Joe Gorga's best friend since they were in third grade."

So it appears that Tony goes way back with both of the Gorga siblings, having grown up in the same neighborhood in New Jersey. But when Teresa received a shirtless selfie from Tony, which she showed to Melissa, Margaret Josephs, and Jackie Goldschneider during dinner in the Hamptons in the January 29 episode of RHONJ, it raised some eyebrows among the Garden State crew.

However, Melissa assured us on WWHL that Teresa and Tony have and always will be strictly platonic. "They are really just a friendship, they really are," she said, adding that Tony is "a good guy." "They grew up together also. They lived across the street from each other their whole life."

Teresa opens up more about her life before marriage in The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 After Show, above.

Check out Melissa's WWHL appearance, below.
