If at first you don’t succeed; try, try again, right? Such is the case with Melissa Gorga trying to sell her Montville, NJ mansion! Melissa and Joe Gorga have once again listed their 9,000 square-foot behemoth, this time with an asking price of $3.5 million in hopes of finally unloading it.
The Gorgas supposedly purchased the home in 2007 for $950,000 – even though Joe was actually the builder (essentially they purchased the home from his company?). Rumors even swirled that Joe, a luxury home developer, initially built the house with a construction loan only sell, but they moved in when Melissa joined Real Housewives Of New Jersey to provide the illusion of being uber wealthy.
Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga always have something in the works when it comes to real estate on Real Housewives of New Jersey. It seems as if they are always remodeling, decorating, or building a home.
To throw it back to Melissa’s first season on RHONJ, she claimed that she and sister-in-law Teresa Giudice had a competitive relationship and some of the tension stemmed from their Jersey mansions. Now, Joe and Melissa‘s Franklin Lakes mansion has a buyer.

Melissa Gorga has a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Like a beaver-free home! The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her family are back in their Montville mansion after their former purchaser/tenant Kai Patterson finally vacated the property.
Melissa shared the pic above of her three kids enjoying the snowfall in the front yard. “There is NO place like home especially for the holidays. #happiness #family #neverleavingagain #nobeavershere #byefelicia.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Melissa and Joe Gorga are still embroiled in a back and forth legal mess with the renter/purchaser of their Montville mansion, Kai D. Patterson. There have been a few new developments – mainly that Kai wants out and the Gorgas aren’t letting him off the hook so easily.
Kai has shared several new emails and documents over the past few days. As we’d prepare to share it, something new would pop up. So, I’m going to summarize up here and paste the rest in full down below for those of you who love the nitty gritty “total package.”
After the judge ordered him to pay Melissa and Joe almost $30,000 in fees, rent and attorney fees, Patterson is ready to leave the Gorga mansion. Kai attempted to persuade Joe to accept a termination agreement that would get him off the hook for both the rental and the purchase of Casa de Beaver, but Joe is not on board. Patterson even found a new rental, but is stuck until the Gorgas agree to let him go – but he may be leaving anyway.
Kai claims he is giving up on the Gorga mansion because he has received estimates from contractors on what the repairs will cost. He claims the repairs will cost between $300,000-400,000! He’s sending Joe a notice that he’s terminating their agreement and leaving the premises and feels he’s well within his rights to do so without further issue.
This may be Joe and Melissa Gorga’s lucky day! Kai Patterson is planning to vacate their mansion and terminate the rental agreement and the purchase arrangement!
In case you’ve been asleep or visiting another planet over the past few months, you can catch up on the Gorga Mansion drama here, here, here and here. And here. Also here. For the rest of you, read on!
Guess what?! A Real Housewives Of New Jersey star is back in court. Bet nobody is surprised to read that.
Joe and Melissa Gorga are continuing to battle their tenant and prospective owner of their Montville mansion in eviction proceedings. It’s been back and forth for a couple months with the Gorgas vs. Kai Patterson. Kai was ordered to move out, but then had it reversed when a judge uncovered the Gorgas had never legally declared the property as a rental. Kai believe that is because they wanted to deceive people into believing they had sold their
dilapidating mansion instead of renting it out.
The unresolved issues resulted in a trial, which is supposed to conclude tomorrow. Yesterday Joe testified in court in an attempt to evict Kai stating his tenant owes $192,557 in unpaid rent. Kai argued that he was withholding rent because of incomplete repairs (including massive plumbing problems) which Joe promised to make.
Trying to prove he was like all serious yo, Joe toted along not one, not two, but THREE attorneys in an attempt to remove Kai from the property so Melissa can move out of her “disgusting” rental and move back into the mansion she once couldn’t stand. How are they affording all these legal fees, I wonder? The garbage business?

It seems all is not well in Poison Paradise! Melissa Gorga may be stuck in that “disgusting” rental for a while.
Reports are emerging that the Gorgas financial problems are far worse than it appears and Joe Gorga is borrowing money from friends, family, and co-workers to keep his businesses and personal life afloat.
Joe reportedly sunk “millions” (of pennies?) into his document garbage business, and the couple is having a helluva time “selling” their house (aka lease-to-own disaster). Melissa was just forced to give up her Bentley after the $5,000 lease was too expensive. A source claims the couple was only leasing it for Real Housewives Of New Jersey, anyway!

Melissa Gorga is hitting back at the information being shared by her renter/purchaser Kai Patterson regarding the status of his purchase. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star took to her blog to set the record straight..sort of. Melissa explains her current housing situation and confirms that she is planning to move back into Casa de Leaky Beaver (aka the Montville mansion).
Melissa backtracks and now wishes she hadn’t said that she was moving away because of sister-in-law Teresa Giudice. “So as you already know, we moved to Franklin Lakes last September and you will see us in our rental home this season. We bought a property there and are building a house a couple miles away from where we are renting. Watching this episode makes me think about two things that I wish I could go back and erase. The first was making that statement about why we wanted to move and the second was not listening to my gut and going through with the sale of our Montville home to the person who bought it.”
