envy by Melissa Gorga

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.”

Plenty of people were skeptical over Melissa Gorga‘s latest business venture last season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.  When the reality star opened up a clothing boutique with a partner, many stories circulated that Melissa was just the “face” of the store and not the actual owner. Turns out that might be somewhat true, at least according to Kim D.  Melissa’s business partner packed up the store and is now selling off the inventory at Posche Thursday night!

Our source shared, “Melissa’s store, which was really never her store, is closed down!! All of the merchandise is out. Nothing is left but the fixtures! The real owner, Jackie Robinson, took everything.”   Our source adds, “The store was always just a storyline for Melissa. She wasn’t the real owner. It was never about her having a career. It was just for the show! Melissa would have had zero storyline with the store. Same like the singing, the book, and the jewelry line….”

Melissa Gorga opens Envy

In the past few seasons of Real Housewives of New Jersey, I felt like Joe Gorga was a pretty lovable side character. He liked the camera way too much and got uncomfortably naked at random times, but he was still seemed like a good and humorous person.

But this season is not a good look for Joe, especially when it comes to his thoughts on Melissa Gorga opening up her clothing boutique Envy. Not only was he not down with the business idea, but he also seemed uncomfortable “watching” his own kids and sharing the home responsibilities with Melissa. I’m calling it now that Melissa will be bombarded with questions about this at the reunion, but for now it seems like Melissa is focusing on the bright side when it comes to her husband and her business.

And that’s a wrap! Tonight was reportedly the taping of the season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, with Melissa Gorga’s fashion show serving as the backdrop. Melissa sold tickets for the Envy Fashion Show to her fans and followers, which was held at Macaluso’s in Hawthorne, New Jersey. Proceeds from the show will benefit the Deborah Hospital Foundation. 

Melissa was supported in her event by sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, husband Joe Gorga and friends Kathy and Rich Wakile.

Jacqueline Laurita skipped the cast event, but was reportedly a hot topic of conversation – namely her argument with Robyn Levy on the cast trip to Vermont.

Take a peek at the photos below, but first: let’s observe a moment of silence for the good old  days of the Posche Fashion Show brawls.

Melissa Gorga is getting ready to open her new boutique, envy by Melissa Gorga and this week she participated in the Montclair Fashion Night: Holiday Preview to give shoppers a peek at what they can expect.  The Real Housewives of New Jersey star showed off a glimpse of the fashions via her new “EnvyEttes” (the Jersey version of Dash Dolls?) on the runway to model a few of the pieces.

Melissa Gorga is a busy woman – wife, mother, reality TV star, author, jewelry designer, pop star… is there anything she can’t do? I mean, besides get her own show, write a book that isn’t vomit inducing, wear the jewelry she sells, and sing on key. But hey… when all else fails, open a clothing boutique!

Yes, it is true. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star revealed yesterday that she is opening a clothing boutique in New Jersey. Melissa, who launched her own jewelry line last year, said, “Moving into apparel was a natural next step for me. Fashion and styling is something that I have always enjoyed.”
