Melissa Gorga Defends Her Financial State: “I Own the Car!”

It's no secret that things aren't exactly going the way Melissa and Joe Gorga would have wanted with the dream house they've been trying to build in Franklin Lakes. The person who moved into their old house apparently turned out to be a nightmare tenant, and Melissa even blogged about the financial mess this attempted move has become. However, has been reporting that the Gorga's financials are worse than they've let on, and that they even had to give up their car. Now, Melissa is fighting back.

According to Radar's source, the Bentley that we saw Melissa crash on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 didn't even belong to the Gorgas — it was leased for the show to make them appear like higher rollers than they are. The source also said that the Gorgas have been forced to return the car at this point, and are now driving a used Mercedes they got for free in exchange for shooting RHONJ scenes at the dealer.

However, according to Melissa, this is all straight up wrong.

"I own the car, it's in my garage, we don't have any Mercedes," Melissa tweeted yesterday.

Well, there you go. Unless you think Melissa is straight out lying, it sounds like, whatever else is going on with the Gorgas, they do own that car. Glad to have that cleared up!
