We have to be honest. We watch "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" for two reasons: the wild cat fights and the chance to peek into some seriously luxurious homes. And Melissa Gorga's Montville, NJ mansion that husband Joe Gorga built is definitely a show-stopper. From the ornate exterior with Italian-Renaissance inspiration to the grand foyer with double curving staircases, it's seriously one of the most over-the-top homes we've seen on reality TV.
And if you're into her style, you're now in luck. Gorga is curating her first home decor event with flash sale site Joss & Main on August 27 called "The Home Italian Style" collection, which includes furniture, upholstered pieces, rugs and accessories. The pieces she chose are a mix of modern and traditional, the look she strives for in her own place. "I want you to walk in and feel like our home is something you haven’t seen before. I always strive to find pieces that are unique. I love the wow factor," she told Joss & Main.
Apparently someone else really loves her home, too. Allegedly, according to Us Weekly the Gorgas just sold it for their full asking price of $3.8 million. The magazine reports that they will start building a new house this fall and until then will be renting.
