Melissa Gorga, ‘Real Housewife’ Leaving New Jersey; Will Build New Dream Home In Franklin Lakes

Melissa and Joe Gorga are moving!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars have sold their New Jersey mansion for $3.8 million, which is actually the full price they wanted

An exclusive story in Us Weekly in May 2012 reported that the Gorgas had put their 2009 colonial style house on the market. The luxurious property has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, four fireplaces and a three-car garage.

At the time, Joe said, “We tried Montville, but it just wasn’t for us. We want to go back to Franklin Lakes, which is closer to where I work.

The family has bought land in the Franklin Lakes area and will start building a new home this fall. The Gorga’s have three children: Antonia, 8, Gino, 5, and Joey, 3. They are preparing for their eldest children to begin school.

The Gorgas will be renting a home in the area until their new home is ready,

Melissa, 34, said, “I feel like this was meant to be. It happened just in time for the kids to start their first of day of school … It’s going to be a lot of work designing and building the new home, but Joe is an incredible builder and I’m excited to go back to where we started our family.”

Joe added, “This is what I love to do. I can’t wait to begin building another dream home for my family.”

Melissa and Joe are also celebrating their 9th wedding anniversary. Melissa Gorga tweeted Tuesday, Aug. 20, “I love you Joe Gorga. Happy Anniversary! 9 years feels like 9 days.”
