Melissa Gorga has had a dramatic ten seasons as a star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but one thing is always constant, and that is her family, including husband Joe, and kids Antonia, Gino, and Joey.
Melissa and Joe’s kids have grown up in the public eye, and viewers have loved seeing how they have matured over the past 11 years. Fans might tune in for the crazy fighting between the Gorgas and the Giudices, but they stay for the dynamics of each Housewife.
Now the Gorgas have a great reason to celebrate: their oldest son, Gino, has graduated from middle school and is officially on to high school!
Melissa Gorga bragged about her ‘shy boy’ Gino
Melissa showed up and showed out at Gino’s graduation ceremony, looking gorgeous, matching her son in black and white. She sported a black, low-cut jumpsuit and a white blazer, both from her own boutique, Envy by Melissa Gorga.
The 14-year-old graduate wore a white suit jacket with a white dress shirt, a black bow tie, and black pants. The proud mom Melissa took snaps of Gino by the pool, and a group shot of his friends, all wearing the same ensemble.
Melissa captioned her photo, “GINO is going to high school😩😩😩 Congratulations to my shy boy💙👨🏻🎓 I know you’re going to do amazing things! You impress me everyday💙.”
Dad Joe Gorga missed his son’s graduation due to a comedy show that he had scheduled previously in Red Bank, New Jersey. It does look like the couple met up later than evening for a night out. Joe commented on Melissa’s post a message for Gino, telling his son, “So proud of you, I love you. Wish I was there.”
Melissa and her family are preparing for Teresa’s wedding
Melissa’s sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, is awaiting her August 2nd wedding to fiance, Luis Ruelas, and although there was much discussion about it, Melissa is in the wedding party.
Teresa revealed on an episode of Watch What Happens Live that she was not having any Bravo Housewives in her wedding, and that included Melissa. Afterward, Melissa said she had no hard feelings about Teresa’s decision, but Joe was very upset about his sister’s choice.
It does appear Teresa had a change of heart, and by way of Ramona Singer’s wedding invite slip-up, it was discovered that Melissa is now a part of the wedding party, although it is not known in what capacity. Neither Teresa or Melissa have commented on the wedding party change, so fans will have to wait until the big day to see what happens!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey is currently on hiatus on Bravo.
