Melissa Gorga’s Sprawling New Jersey Home Is Being Invaded… by Wild Turkeys

The Real Housewives of New Jersey boutique owner had some rather large, feathered visitors.

Upon returning to her home yesterday, Melissa Gorga came across quite a surprise. Filming the experience and sharing it to her Instagram Stories, Melissa showed what she found waiting for her in her stone-lined driveway. “Guys, I am pulling down my driveway and I don’t know if you can see this, but I am being invaded; is this real life?” she said, while showing a slew of large wild turkeys… who had no intention of moving for The Real Housewives of New Jersey mama’s car!

“Are they gonna move? Oh my god. Um. Hi, everybody, what the hell! I mean, Thanksgiving was a month ago, guys! Holy s--t,” she joked, as the turkeys slowly crept near the front door of Melissa’s New Jersey mansion, which has been on and off the market for several years. (Update: Most recently listed for $2.948 million, the couple took the 9,100-square-foot, six-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bathroom home off the market shortly before the holidays.)

And this isn’t the first wildlife sighting Melissa has had in her suburban neighborhood — just this summer she shared a video of a pack of deer running through her front yard.
