RHONJ couple Melissa and Joe Gorga may lose their spot on show ahead of the upcoming seventh season. Luckily, Melissa doesn’t appear to concerned.
According to a January 31 report by Real Mr. Housewife, Melissa recently took to Twitter, claiming if she and Joe do get the axe, they won’t be left unable to support their family.
“Those asking how r we going 2 live if #RHONJ doesn’t come back makes me lol… Do U really think Joe doesn’t work?! He’s a crazy workaholic!”
Although The Real Housewives of New Jersey season seven has yet to be confirmed there have been a slew of rumors in recent months in regard to possible casting changes and filming start dates.
As the Inquisitr reported earlier, the RHONJ couple may be unnecessary to the series if Teresa Giudice isn’t on it, which is a possibility because of her 15-month prison term.
“Melissa’s story line has always depended on Teresa, and now that she’s in prison she’s not sure what will happen to her,” a source close to production told Radar Online. “The fights between their two families have been major plot lines on the show, but without Teresa what is Melissa going to do?”
Last season, Melissa was one of two housewives kept on the show full-time. The other wife was Giudice. Meanwhile, the rest of the cast changed entirely. Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo left the series, and Dina Manzo, along with three new wives, took their place. Kathy Wakile’s role changed as well, with her going from full-time to part-time on the show.
“Melissa is definitely concerned that she is on the chopping block. She doesn’t want to be irrelevant and is not sure what will happen to her. She loves being a part of the show and is devastated for Teresa, Joe and the girls. But she feels like producers might only want her if Teresa is there.”
While the RHONJ couple claims they are doing fine financially, they have canceled plans to build a new dream home after ending up in a legal battle with the tenant at their former property.
The Gorgas are “now selling the Franklin Lakes lot where they had already started construction, and have moved back into their dilapidated Montville mansion,” Radar Online reported last year.
“The couple entered the Montville mansion into a lease to purchase agreement with New Jersey businessman Kai Patterson in 2013, and started construction on a new house of their own. But the tenant later claimed to have discovered thousands of dollars in repairs were needed when he employed his own home inspection.”
Rather than pay to have the home repaired, the RHONJ couple moved back to Montville.
