Melissa Gorga: This Episode Was a Proud Moment For Me

Melissa talks about opening Envy and her husband's "dramatic" reaction to dealing with the kids.

By Melissa Gorga
Joe Gorga Plays Mr. Mom

Envy’s in the house!

How to Watch

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

Let’s face it, the kids stole the show this episode. From rock climbing to bathing animals in strange places to cell phone etiquette, they can be so much fun to watch!

I laughed out loud seeing Joe handle the kids while I was at work. I think it’s safe to say he was being a little dramatic! Sending the kids outside when our backyard was completely under construction –- dirt piles and all -- wasn’t the best idea.

This episode was a proud moment for me –- Envy is now open! After months of hard work, I am so excited you were able to see how the boutique turned out. I wanted to prove to myself that I can do it all as a mom, wife and now business owner. I could not be more thankful and appreciative of Joe and of the girls for coming out to show their support. The opening was a huge success! I guess it is true, dog poop is good luck. You can check out Envy online at

Joe’s touching words about my father really meant a lot. I know my father is with me always and that he is proud of all I have done.

The relationship between a parent and their children is so emotional and we saw that throughout this episode. Watching Teresa struggle as she read about being away from her daughters was so hard. And seeing how emotional my sisters get when they think about our dad missing these moments is heartbreaking.

Jersey may seem all wrapped up in a pretty little bow, but just wait until next week as it all starts to unravel.

Thanks for tuning in. Until next time…

Lots of love always,
