The Real Housewives of New Jersey will sometime focus on who has had what done, especially Melissa Gorga, and her nose job. The wife of Joe Gorga has been at the center of multiple storylines that usually include her feud with Teresa Giudice. Melissa and Teresa have never gotten along, with Teresa often throwing out accusations about her sister-in-law.
In 2011, Melissa joined RHONJ as a permanent member of the franchise; she is now on her eleventh season with The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13. The mother of three was not welcomed with open arms as Teresa made it very hard to branch out on her own. Over the years, Melissa’s personality has changed in order to preserve her family’s well-being from attacks made by Teresa. While Melissa’s character may still be the same, her looks have undoubtedly morphed over the last few of years.
Melissa Gorga Admitted She Had A Nose Job
For years, Melissa was able to dodge questions about whether or not she had gone under the knife and had her nose done, claiming it was just good contouring skills. However, during RHONJ season 7 in 2016, Melissa finally outed herself after a table fight with former RHONJ star Jacqueline Laurita telling her frienemy it was the “worst-kept secret.” At the time, Melissa was annoyed that Jacqueline kept bringing up her surgical history to the other women, sharing with Bravo cameras that it was her secret to tell. However, Melissa set the record straight, noting she had one procedure, not four like some of the women had claimed.
Melissa Gorga Had Other Procedures Done
Melissa has been open about her procedures since she admitted she tried Botox and fillers, just like the other housewives. In January 2023, on the Jeff Lewis Has Issues podcast, the RHONJ star shared that she had also had her lips done, revealing she tried the procedure on a whim. However, her protective husband, Joe, was initially not a fan. Joe, who may be fired from RHONJ, was afraid his wife would turn into a “glamazon,” but in time, he has grown to accept her tweaks. Melissa has also tried Emsculpt to enhance her abs.
The newest season of RHONJ has recently kicked off, showing Melissa stronger than ever. She and Joe have decided that they will no longer be under the control of Teresa as they choose to finally draw a line in the sand. For years, Teresa and Melissa have been comparing themselves to one another, but Melissa is ready to step out from the OG’s shadow and embrace all of her truths.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
