As mentioned in Monday’s blog post, it’s going to be one, big Jersey party tonight at The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City. And no one brings Jersey to the party more than the host of this Friday Night Live, Melissa Gorga!
That’s right, this Real Housewife Of New Jersey is ready to mix, mingle, and have a good time with her fans.
Diplomatic as ever (and that’s why we love her), she sat down with us and endured our
Teresa Guidice implied dirt-seeking questions.
TAC: You have had so much family drama surface from The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Do you have any regrets?
Melissa Gorga: There’s always good and bad with everything. It was a great opportunity, and I’m glad I took it.
TAC: What is the best experience you’ve had on the show?
Melissa Gorga: I love watching how my kids have grown since filming a year ago. It’s amazing how much they have grown. It’s like I’m watching family videos.
TAC: Was there ever a situation that happened off camera that you wish was caught on camera? What was it?
Melissa Gorga: I wish that some of the non-dramatic times were caught on camera, the quiet family moments.
TAC: What is one huge misconception that regular viewers should know about reality TV and your “character” on the show?
Melissa Gorga: I think the show is a pretty good representation of who I am, but i always want viewers to know that family is the most important thing in my life.
TAC: Changing gears, what can we expect from your appearance at The Pool After Dark on Friday night? A little On Display or Rockstar, maybe? Will there be any surprise guests?
Melissa Gorga: I’ve always loved AC because you never know what is going to happen. I am also excited to meet the fans, that’s one of the best parts, and of course Joe will be there with me!
TAC: Yay! Joe Gorga in the house! Back to your music, what song of yours (released yet or not) are you most proud of so far and why?
Melissa Gorga: The ballad that I wrote to Joe, How Many Times, is my favorite. I have a new dance song coming out in September that I think people will love!
TAC: And we have to touch on beauty. How do you look so amazing after birthing 3 children?! Can you share a favorite workout or workout tip with us?
Melissa Gorga: I eat in moderation. I eat whatever I want to eat, but I practice portion control and I work out 3 times a week with a trainer. I don’t believe in dieting.
TAC: What are your personal and professional hopes for the future?
Melissa Gorga: I hope to remain a tight, happy family. Nothing is more important than my husband and children. Professionally, I just want to keep on having success with my music.
