Real Housewives of New Jersey

Joe Gorga Supports Wife Melissa Amid Controversial Marriage Book (PHOTOS)

Melissa Gorga is making headlines for her new book, Love Italian Style, but even with tons of backlash, her husband Joe Gorga is sticking by her side.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple was seen holding hands in NYC on October 3 while arriving at The Wendy Williams Show to promote Melissa's memoir. After writing in her book about feeling pressure to look good for her man, it comes as no surprise that Melissa looked dazzling for the outing. The aspiring singer wore a one-shoulder black shirt, black pants, and boots, while her hubby rocked jeans and a ;casual shirt.

Melissa's book touches on topics like sex in marriage. She controversially wrote, "Men, I know you think your woman isn't the type who wants to be taken. But trust me, she is. Every girl wants to get her hair pulled once in a while. If your wife says 'no,' turn her around, and rip her clothes off. She wants to be dominated."

Now we know why these two look so content during their day out in NYC! Click through the gallery to see Melissa and Joe walking hand-in-hand and let us know what you think of the book controversy in the comments below.
