'RHONJ's Melissa Gorga & Teresa Giudice Can Bond Over Pretending They Own Fancy Cars
No doubt, Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Melissa and Joe Gorga have more cash than your everyday John Q. Public. But! They may not be as loaded as they like to lead on. According to Radar Online, the Bentley the Gorgas drove in RHONJ was strictly for the purpose of making it seem like they lead a super lavish lifestyle, as opposed to, you know, actually living one. And keeping up with the Housewives didn't come cheap for the Gorgas — apparently, Joe and Melissa were paying an unsettling $5,000 a month for their fancy car. That's a really expensive facade.
Melissa and Joe have reportedly since returned their ridiculously-overpriced car since shooting has wrapped, as that would be an insane amount of money to waste each month on the thing that takes Melissa from her home to the nail salon. But an interesting tidbit about this whole thing: a source said that Melissa wants to make her sis-in-law, Teresa Giudice, super jealous with all her fancy clothes, cars, and jewelry; hence, the Bentley. Gross? Yes. Surprising? Sadly, not really.
Melissa and Teresa may be getting along now, and that's important, given all the crap the Giudices are going through. But I have a sneaking suspicion that those two women will always have a little competition with one another, no matter what the circumstance. And I guess if that costs one of said women 60 grand a year, so be it?
Might want to tread lightly, though, Melissa. It wasn't that long ago that the Teresa was doing the same kinda thing.
