Melissa Gorga is right at home in a barely-there bikiniThe Real Housewives of New Jersey mom loves showing off her curves and sculpted abs, and fitness is a big part of her life. But she recently opened up to Glamour about the cosmetic procedure she's been contemplating — and why she ultimately decided against it.

How to Watch

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

When asked by Glamour if there is anything she's thinking about doing, Melissa replied: "Oh no, you mean work done, right? I'm seeing a lot of butts on Instagram. But my husband's not into it. I was like, 'Fine.' I'm just so sick of squatting."

So Joe Gorga convinced Melissa she doesn't need it, but she wouldn't be the first NJ wife to go for butt enhancement surgery: Dolores Catania shared the details of her Brazilian butt lift surgery with The Lookbook back in 2016.

Melissa also got candid with Glamour about the cosmetic procedures she has gone through with, including the nose job that sparked a ton of conversation.

"If I'm being brutally and totally honest, I think it was watching my first season of Housewives. When you see yourself back on TV sometimes you say, 'Oh, I didn't know I had a little lump in my nose,'" she told the magazine. "As far as my breasts go, I've had them since I was in my 20s, so it wasn't about that for me. My nose was definitely from suddenly going from being a housewife to being on TV and in magazines. I was like, 'I never noticed that. I think if I do that little tweak, it'll make me feel better.' And I did it and was happy with my results. I mean, everybody's different but for me that's what it was."
