Melissa Gorga was more than ready for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 13 premiere last night as she partied the night away with some of her castmates and a surprising Jersey Shore star.

A photo of their night out was posted by Angelina Pivarnick, who joined the cast to celebrate the premiere clad in a black minidress with a corset bodice and draping at the bottom.

The image showed the MTV personality posing with Melissa, Margaret Josephs, and Jackie Goldschneider as they smiled for the snap.


It wasn’t surprising that Melissa was fashionable in a chic cocktail dress at the event.

She opted for a black lace outfit with delicate straps and a low neckline that featured a midi length while paired with clear, strappy heels.

The Bravo personality accessorized the outfit with large hoop earrings, and she donned dramatic lashes and nude, glossy lips. 

Melissa’s BFF, Jackie Goldschneider, also wore black, while Margaret chose a tan sweater dress with side cutouts.

Melissa Gorga promotes Epic

Melissa has several brand partnerships, one being Epic, which she promoted some time ago on social media during National Reading Month.

She urged her followers to sign up with the company using her code “MELISSA,” and they would get access to free content for one month.

“Reading builds confidence in my kids and brings us together as a family!!” wrote Melissa in the Instagram post, which showed her using Epic with her youngest son, Joey.

Melissa noted that Epic gives her kids access to 40,000 books, “everything from Read-To-Me to chapter books–so it’s screen time I feel good about.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
