Exclusive: Melissa Gorga Shares Her Secret on How to Get Her Kids to Bring Home Good Grades

"Joe pays them," the #RHONJ mom reveals. "He pays them for As.”

By Jordan Upmalis

There’s two words (eh, more like two sounds) in the Gorga house that encourage her three children to get good grades: cha-ching! The Daily Dish recently caught up with Melissa Gorga to chat about getting ready to go back to school, and the Real Housewives of New Jersey mom shared how she and Joe get their kids to bring home straight As.

How to Watch

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

”Every time they bring home an A or a 90-or-above on a test, they get money,” she says. “It’s not a lot of money, but it’s something they get excited about if Joe pulls a $5 or $10 out of his pocket.”

It’s also bred a bit of a competition among the clan. “They try to battle each other when they got home to see who got the best grade and who’s collecting all the money,” she explains. “That’s definitely one way: Joe pays them. [Laughs.] He pays them for As.”
