On the Season 11 premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the ladies attended a birthday bash for Jackie Goldschneider's husband, Evan. Between the fabulous fashion and the rumors spreading like wildfire, there was a lot to take in. In fact, so much was happening that many guests might have missed the delicious buffet. But not Melissa Gorga

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 premiere May 5th at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

When she appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on February 24, the Envy boutique owner shared how green beans saved the day for her at Evan's party:

As the rumors were flying, Melissa said, "I just kept eating my green bean, and making pretend I didn't know what was going on, because I was like, this is gonna go, like, south, really fast." 

A bemused Andy responded: "The audience likes that you were eating your green bean." See more from Melissa's WWHL appearance in the clip above.
