And heck, she seemed to really play the part.

Gorga competed against Real Housewives of New York City’s cast member Ramona Singer, who was often shown reacting to Gorga throughout her performance. And yes, it was a rematch for these two, who went to head to head on the same television show just four months ago.

Certainly, Gorga sure looks like she is loving her status as reality show superstar. Yet, a brand new interview in Cosmopolitan magazine seemed to hint that her husband Joe might not love it much as her.

“Sometimes I think he sits back, and he’s like, ‘If we could take it all back and just make you come back home and sit on the couch and play with the kids….’ And I’m, like, ‘The kids got older.’ I’m able to go to work. They’re at school,” Melissa says.

“I think it just bothers Joe, because he just wants it to go back to when everyone was a baby and mommy was home all the time,” she continues. “I think if he could trade it all in, he would go back. I wouldn’t, but he would.”
