Melissa Gorga Reveals Plans for Her Soon-to-Be New Home: "Big Closet, Big Kitchen, That's All I Asked For!"

In August 2022, Melissa Gorga shared a glimpse of the “glam room in progress” in her new house. At that time, all we saw of her getting-ready space was chic tile done by “the best” (Rachel Fuda’s husband, John Fuda) and a beaded chandelier. Finally, on May 1, Melissa shared a full look inside the room before heading to a very special event. 

How to Watch

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

As Melissa showed in her Instagram Story video, her finished glam room has a gray-and-white vanity area with a backlit mirror, a salon-style chair to wash and style her hair, and beautiful white floors.

“Love my little glam room vibes,” Melissa wrote, noting that she was getting ready to do something “fun” related to the Met Gala.

Melissa and Joe moved into the Franklin Lakes home in November 2022 after COVID-related construction delays that she detailed in an exclusive February 2022 interview about the project

"It took us so long just to get the permits to frame, you have no idea," she said. "First of all, it's costing us double the amount of money and it's taking triple the amount of time to get the materials. So, we're probably building a house in the absolute worst time possible, but we're doing it anyway."

In addition to the newly-revealed glam room, the new home boasts a chic black-and-white exterior, a massive white kitchen, a neutral-hued living room with a fireplace and fancy chandeliertwo bars, and a glamorous 1920s-inspired bedroom with custom lighting.

“Love waking up here,” Melissa posted on Instagram of her new space in January 2023.  

The event Melissa was referencing in her post about the glam room was the Live from E!: The Met Gala 2023 watch party, where Melissa joined fellow audience members, including Paige DeSorbo, Amanda Batula, and Ciara Miller, to chat about all of the night’s fabulous fashion. 

Melissa looked beautiful in a black backless minidress from Envy ($398), which she paired with strappy black shoes. The Summer House cast members also rocked show-stopping looks. Amanda looked sultry in a long-sleeved sheer black dress, Paige dazzled in a column gown with a mirrored leather belt, and Ciara stunned in a V-neck black number.

On May 2, she declared in an Instagram post that her sparkly blue hooded Walter Mendez gown for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 13 reunion was “giving superwoman.” Melissa completed the dazzling look with Stuart Weitzman shoes and jewelry from Marvelous Diamonds.
