Reality TV star Melissa Gorga recently wrapped filming for season four of Bravo’s hit show The Real Housewives of New Jersey. As the newest addition to the cast of season three, fans watched as Gorga launched her music career. It’s been a life-long dream that she’s finally pursuing along with caring for her husband Joe and their children in the Garden State.
Before hosting a party at mur.mur nightclub inside the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, Gorga dished about her music career, staying fit and the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
You’re the newest addition to The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast; what has that experience been like for you?
It’s been a crazy rollercoaster ride to be honest. It has its ups, it has its downs but overall it’s been a nice experience. There’s been some great opportunities like tonight I’m hosting with this great vodka that I’m endorsing which is Voli it’s the world’s first low calorie vodka it’s all about skinny sipping and being able to go out and have a couple of cocktails with your girlfriends and keeping it light and low-calorie.
You have always dreamed about recording and you’re pursuing a music career can you give us an update on that?
Yeah, actually, “On Display” did incredible it went all the way up to number 11 on iTunes which for me as a first-time artist with my first song was more than I could have ever asked for and I have three additional songs coming out as well. My next song is a ballad that I wrote to my husband so, I’m excited! I have three more songs coming out some party songs, dance songs, a slow song–I co-wrote all three of them. They’ll be out in the spring so I’m excited for everyone to hear them.
You’re a mom and a housewife; how do you stay fit?
You know, I chase my three little ones all over the house. Having toddlers and babies all over the place–you keep busy. I’m not that girl that sits home and watches TV; I don’t do much of that. I’m always on the go so I move around a lot and I eat right I do, I try to eat right; things like Voli when you’re out, low-calorie salads, things like that but definitely I move a lot with the kids and it helps.
Where are you currently, are you filming an upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey?
We just finished filming season four which is another pretty intense season. I think the fans are going to like it, I think they’re going to enjoy it. No word on season five yet I have a feeling there will be a season five but no word on anything yet with it.
How has being on the show affected you and your family in either a positive or negative way?
Of-course it’s not easy to put yourself out there and to be in the limelight. We’re opening up our world to millions of people which is not easy but it’s touching to me when I have someone walk up to me and say, ‘You know what? I’m going through the same thing you are and when you said this you touched me.’ When I discuss my father and what I’ve been through with my father it touches someone else’s life and that is the most rewarding part; that’s the part that’s so amazing and worth every minute of it so I have no regrets, I love it, I’m enjoying it and that’s it we’ll see where it goes from here.
Something else fans saw play out on the show as every family has issues was the relationship with your sister-in-law Teresa–where is that now?
Teresa and I are always trying we’re always constantly trying for the kids. I feel in my heart that I have done everything I can possibly do–I know I have done everything. I think you’re going to see a lot more of that on season four, you’re going to see us really, really try to work it out and unfortunately sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t but I can put my head on my pillow at night knowing that I’ve done everything in my power to help Joe reconcile with his sister.
