Melissa and Joe Gorga put their family drama on the back burner to celebrate a very special occasion over the weekend.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars marked their 18th anniversary this weekend, and they honored the occasion in Montauk.
Melissa shared photos from their stylish outing as she rocked a tiny yellow crop top and jeans. In her post, the mom-of-three noted that 13 of her 18 years of marriage have been on reality TV. Despite it all, the twosome was still going strong.
The same can’t be said for Joe and Melissa’s relationship with Teresa Giudice — Joe’s only sister and Melissa’s sister-in-law.
Reality TV has affected the family dynamic as some rocky moments have played out over the years. However, the upcoming season might signal the end of Joe and Melissa’s relationship with the RHONJ OG.
Currently, Joe and Melissa are not speaking to Teresa, allegedly due to the part she played in a rumor claiming Melissa cheated on her husband.
That didn’t appear to affect the couple’s marriage as they have officially made it to 18 years.
Melissa Gorga stylish in crop top for a beachside celebration
Melissa shared several photos on Instagram of how she and Joe Gorga spent their anniversary. The couple enjoyed a laid-back weekend at a beachside party outside of Jersey where they left all their family drama.
Melissa wore ripped jeans and a yellow bandeau crop top for the occasion and had her brown hair parted in the middle with soft curls.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star paired the outfit with black wedges and a black Christian Dior handbag while Joe opted for a white t-shirt, black jeans, and white sneakers.
“18 YEARS. Ride or die for 18 years🏼 13 of them on reality television. Proud of us @joeygorga,” wrote Melissa in her post. “We are fighting the good fight. Happy Anniversary ❤️❤️❤️I Love you.”
Joe Gorga celebrates his birthday during his anniversary weekend
Meanwhile, Joe Gorga also celebrated another major milestone this weekend, his birthday, and Melissa had a special tribute for the birthday boy.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star shared a photo of her freshly done manicure with the word “joe” written on one finger. The 43-year-old posted the photo on her Instagram Story and tagged Joe.
“Happy Birthday @joegorga put your name on my [nails emoji,]” she wrote.
Meanwhile, Joe’s RHONJ castmate Margaret Joseph also showed him some birthday love.
“Happiest Birthday to my favorite other Joe in my life! You are warm, funny and all heart!! Blessed to have you in our lives!! Love you! Xoxo 🎂🥂🍾❤️💋👧🏼,” wrote Margaret, alongside photos of her and husband Joe Benigno out with Melissa and Joe Gorga.
