Melissa Gorga has shared her journey to open her new store, ENVY, on this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. In the beginning, Gorga struggled to balance both her home life with her husband and three children, and her opening the store to launch the business. Melissa had hired a team, including working with a business partner who seemed more absent than herself. She was busy going on vacations but she did tell Gorga that her online sales were down. And while some people admired her for getting a business partner to help balance her life with the business — except Kim DePaola.
According to a new tweet, Melissa Gorga is now being accused of not owning her ENVY boutique. During last night’s season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Kim decided it would be a good idea to blast Melissa for her ownership of ENVY, as Kim didn’t feel that Gorga owned the store all by herself.

“The Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice alliance is as authentic as her ownership of Envy. Total BS #RHONJ,” DePaola revealed on Twitter about her Real Housewives of New Jersey co-star, to which Kim received many tweets from people who simply didn’t believe her claims.
“Kim put down the straw and go to sleep old coke hag is not a good look on you,” one person replied to the business owner hinting to rumors of her drug use, while another added, “[you’re] fake Kim I thought you were Teresa friend. I hope she has Melissa back.”

Of course, Gorga may not own 100 percent of the store. Like fans learned of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump also shares ownership of SUR with a business partner, but she’s still the legal owner as she owns over 50 percent of the establishment. It is possible that Melissa Gorga has the same setup with a business partner as Lisa Vanderpump, but it doesn’t make her any less of an owner.

“Melissa Gorga does not own Envy. It’s all fake. Like her nose and the fact that she didn’t work as a stripper #RHONJ,” Kim D. also wrote on Twitter, bringing up the stripper-gate argument once again, to which people told her to stop tweeting about the show and telling her that she would never become a full-time housewife.
“Why would u make allegations like that when its all over about ur store having roaches? Don’t believe Kim Melissa owns her store she jealous because Melissa is doing very good. Why would she dignify an ignorant Tweet lol all you have to do is check it out and see,” one person wrote to Kim over three tweets, clearly taking Melissa’s side in the argument – and other tweets to Kim were similar in nature.

“It’s funny that you keep popping up on a show that you’ll NEVER be a housewife or have a major role in. Bye Felicia!” one person wrote, while others added, “You need to stop!! You’re at the age where this is not professional or cute! Makes you look bitter!” and “Just because Melissa has a partner in the business doesn’t mean she doesn’t owned it. Don’t hate. #RHONJ.”

For years, DePaola has tried to bring down Melissa Gorga and it sounds like she wants to continue, as she keeps bringing up drama from years ago. Gorga and Teresa Giudice have moved on from their issues and they made the decision to leave DePaola and Jacqueline Laurita out of the group. They didn’t want to keep people around, who couldn’t be supportive and understanding.
What do you think of Kim’s accusations that Melissa Gorga doesn’t own her own store, ENVY?
