The battle of the boutiques rages on! The sequined jumpsuit (oh how our Jersey girls love a good sequined jumpsuit!) Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga wore for her birthday celebrations was an apparent source of irritation for Posche owner Kim DePaola. Turns out Kim D. had posted the exact same jumpsuit on her Posche instagram (twice) two weeks before Melissa wore it out for her birthday party over the weekend.

So naturally Kim did what all the reality stars and their sidekicks do: headed to social media. Kim let everyone know she spotted the copycat look immediately and she didn’t hold back her thoughts on the situation.

The future was not looking too bright for Melissa Gorga‘s store Envy after her partner Jackie Beard Robinson left. To add insult to injury, Jackie sold the Envy merchandise at Posche, the story owned by Melissa’s nemesis Kim DePaola. Melissa insisted that it wasn’t the end for her store though and she bounced back quicker than anyone ever expected. Envy is already up and running again and some Real Housewives cast members turned up for the re-opening party.

Of course, Melissa’s sister-in-law-turned-best-friend Teresa Giudice was there to lend her support. The always-neutral cast member Dolores Catania was on hand as well. Weirdly enough, all three of them had the same brown hair with blonde highlights. RHONJ friend (and shit stirrer) Robyn Levy came through as well. The more interesting story is who wasn’t pictured.

Just because the clothes are gone and some of the fixtures yanked out at her envy boutique, that doesn’t mean Melissa Gorga is packing up and going home. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star vows to reopen and soldier on with her clothing store. Her costar Dolores Catania also weighs in her two cents on the situation between Melissa and Jackie Beard Robinson.

Melissa took to Instagram to let her fans and customers know that the show will go on. She shared, “Awesome couple of days buying at #intermezzo #jacobjavits for your spring/summer 2017 styles! All for @envybymg.” She added, “Can’t wait for you to see!! Coming back stronger than ever & doing it on my own. #bosslady.”

In just under a year, Melissa Gorga‘s business arrangement with Jackie Beard Robinson and envy boutique fell apart. Jackie wants to share her side of what happened and also wishes the Real Housewives of New Jersey star the best on reopening the store in time for the Spring season.

Jackie shared, “Just to clarify a couple things, Melissa and I were partners. I decided that I wanted out. In the termination agreement we’ve been working on for months, we decided that I would take all of the inventory and I was going to liquidate the store… because I basically own everything.”
