July 30, 2012 04:00 PM by Veronica Dudo
Over the past four seasons, The Real Housewives New Jersey have been taking fans on a wild ride as they’ve welcomed cameras into their crazy lives. Joe and Melissa Gorga joined the cast of season three and since then, the country has been watching the loving couple raise their three children Antonia, Gino and Joey. In addition to his construction business, Joe has also helped his wife launch her singing career. Over the weekend the pair made an appearance at the Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City. Before hosting the party at the nightclub, the Gorga’s spoke with She Knows Reality TV Magazine about being on the Bravo reality TV show, family drama and the future.
When Melissa said she wanted to be a singer, Joe did everything in his power to help his wife including building her a home studio, hiring some of the best in the business and financially backing her. Melissa’s recently released songs are “Rockstar,” “On Display,” “How Many Times” and her new single “I Just Wanna.”
Watching the current season now can sometimes be difficult for the couple. “Sometimes it’s hard because you don’t know what goes on behind your back and you don’t know what people are filming behind your back but I’m always hopeful for Joe and for our family,” Melissa explained adding, “The bottom line is that we are family so I am a forgiver. If you look at me in the eyes and you apologize to me I truly forgive you from the bottom of my heart. That’s what I did and that’s what you’re going to see in the next couple of episodes.” Melissa said.
While there always seems to be drama brewing, this season fans have watched the Giudice’s and Gorga’s make attempts to work out their differences.
“For me, it’s very difficult because it’s with my family and you see what your family really says about you at certain times so it’s very hard for me,” Joe shared, “Overall, out of anyone on the show, I take it the hardest so you get to really realize what your family’s really about and how they really feel about you.” He said.
A major focus of the show has been the efforts between Joe and his sister Teresa Giudice to try and mend their relationship. When asked if things were better between the sibling Joe answered, “Not really. What you see it what you get I’m always trying and I think her husband’s a big wedge in it and I believe he changed her; so it’s tough, but I’ll always keep trying.” He said.
On a positive note, Melissa recently shot her new music video and says she can’t wait for fans to see it.
“It was surreal! I get chills if you even say it. It was surreal and I thank God that I had the opportunity to do it. It felt amazing, it felt good and I feel like this new song, “I Just Wanna” is going to be a big surprise to everyone; it’s amazing so I think everyone’s going ot love it!” She gushed.
Health consecious, Melissa has also partnered with a new low-calorie vodka. “I’m the celebrity ambassador of Voli Vodka with Pitbull and Fergie which is pretty amazing!” Adding, “I have a couple other things up my sleeve that I can’t really say just yet but good things are happening so I am very grateful.” She said.
As for adjusting to their new-found fame, Joe explains that his daughter, Antonia is more aware about what’s happening recalling, ”We were walking somewhere and she was like, ‘Why are they taking pictures of us?’ She’s staring to get it now so when people come up and ask if they can take a picture, she poses so she’s getting it but not the boys–they’re too young.” Joe said.
