Melissa Gorga spoke to Us Weekly on February 1, ahead of Tuesday night's premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 12 about the current status of her marriage to husband Joe Gorga.

“We’re doing great,” Melissa, who has been married to Joe since 2004, confirmed. “The pandemic was a little rough. I think it brought out a lot of our real feelings.”

Amid the pandemic, Melissa, along with the rest of the world, was spending a lot more one-on-one with Joe and their kids, including daughter Antonia, 16, and sons Gino, 14, and Joey, 11, and understandably, that posed its challenges.

According to Melissa, she and Joe had “way too much time” together during the pandemic. And much of that time was spent speaking about their relationship and the issues they faced during the 11th season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, when Melissa was spending too much time away from home for Joe's liking.

“We’re just both sitting on the couch, looking at each other,” she recalled. “And I’m like, ‘I got a lot to say.’ He’s like, ‘So do I.'”

Luckily, after hashing things out, Melissa and Joe got to a better place.

“We’re so much better now,” Melissa stated. “It was probably good for us to talk it through. I didn’t know how he was feeling, and I don’t think he was getting where I was coming from.”

Last summer, during a separate interview, Melissa explained her and Joe's issues.

“Joe is not big on change," Melissa admitted to Us Weekly in July 2021. “He likes to know that everything’s going to be intact and probably, that’s what makes him a great husband. But for me, I’m all about change right now.”

As fans saw during Tuesday's premiere, Joe has taken up comedy. And according to Melissa, he's not half bad.

“He’s shockingly good,” Melissa said earlier this week. “And he’s doing a great job. I just look at him like, ‘You’re so busy. You have so much going on. Like, why do you wanna do this?’ But you know, I don’t want to knock it because there were things I wanted to do in life, and I went ahead and did that.”
