The Secret to Melissa Gorga's Smoking Bod? Chasing Kids

Diet? What's that?

By Lauren Metz

Melissa Gorga of The Real Housewives of New Jersey
Love her or hate her, you have to admit that Melissa Gorga has a hot bod (just ask hubby Joey). But diet is a four-letter word that's not in this Real Housewives of New Jersey star's vocabulary. "There is no dieting going on in the Gorga household!" the 32-year-old "On Display" singer tells Life & Style. "I can't diet! I stay active so I can eat what I want."

The Gorgas three children -- Antonia, Gino and Joey -- act as Melissa's trainers most of the time. "I'm up and down the stairs and running around the house, so I feel I get cardio that way," she adds. The rest of the time the petite brunette focuses on toning by hooking up with trainer Kelly Giordano three times a week for hour-long weight workouts.

And cover your ears, old-school Italians. Melissa says she's not into the ginormous family meals that include no less than three pasta dishes. "I'm not a huge meat-and-potatoes girl. I tend to go for lighter meals, because that's what I enjoy." We bet Teresa has a few recipes for that.
