Melissa Gorga is following in the footsteps of some of her fellow housewives by trying on a new career hat — designer. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is set to premiere the Melissa Gorga Collection this July on HSN.
Despite the extravagant jewelry that Melissa may flaunt in her everyday life, her pieces are meant to be affordable statement pieces that are wearable with any look. "The collection is very versatile and features high-fashion statement pieces that are trendy and take you from day to night," she told Us Weekly exclusively. "The overall tone of the collection feels like a mix of sexy and sophisticated where you can wear a piece with a blazer or a black dress and a killer heel and rock it either way."
Melissa Gorga was a ray of sunshine in a teeny yellow bikini this weekend. Melissa and Joe Gorga frolicked around in the sand together and played a little catch with a football as they enjoyed some one-on-one time in Miami Beach.
Earlier this month Melissa made an appearance at a home show in Florida and answered audience questions about the new season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. She does confirm that along with Dina Manzo coming back,Kathy Wakile and her sister Rosie will be a part of the show and confirms that Jacqueline Laurita isn't returning nor is Danielle Staub – despite rumors. She dishes on Rosie's dating life, the new cast members and more. Check out the videos (and bikini photo gallery) below for the scoop.
We know how much many of you love the baby, kid, and family pictures in our weekly photo roundup. So, when the reality TV stars started to share adorable Easter pics, we decided to round them up for your viewing pleasure. For me, it was a much needed break from the mess that aired on Bravo last night.

Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!
I'd like to think that reality stars learn from the mistakes of their peers, but then I remember that they are reality stars. They aren't revered for their brains, but rather for how dramatic their lives are at any given time. Hey, I'm just jealous!
Watching all of the financial strife (to put it mildly) of her family members/co-stars hasn't deterred the maybe recently demotedKathy Wakile from pursuing her dream home. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is hoping that her dessert making skills will be the perfect foundation for a brand new custom home. Sweet dreams, for sure!
This weekend is a busy one for Bravolebrities! So many events going on – like Lauren Manzo's engagement party!
Lauren Manzo and Vito Scalia gathered their friends and family at the Brownstone to celebrate their engagement tonight! A few of the photos from the evening made their way to Instagram via Jacqueline Laurita and others and it looks like it was a good night – and a drama-free night! So rare for a Bravo event, right?
Among those in attendance to celebrate the upcoming marriage (which may be filmed for their spinoff show): Melissa and Joe Gorga, Jacs and Chris Laurita, Kathy and Rich Wakile and of course the proud parents – Caroline and Albert Manzo. Caroline was even caught on camera dancing with her future son-in-law's father. Since the show finished filming its first season already, I wonder if it was filmed for possible use in a second season?
It doesn't look like Dina or Teresa scored an invite…..
Following the event, Melissa Gorga tweeted many thanks to those who helped make the event a success, including a shout out to DJ Pauly D. "@DJPaulyD thank you for being so generous with your time and donating a meet & greet to Project Ladybug!! Much appreciated!"
