Melissa Gorga of the The Real Housewives of New Jersey is closer and closer to having all of her dreams come true, including the perfect home for her, Joey, and her three children. In a recent interview with TBB Reality, the singer and new author confirmed that her custom-built house is about a year away.

In the meantime, the Gorgas decided to rent in Franklin Lakes, so that the kids can be incorporated into the appropriate school district from the get-go.

"We are currently in Franklin Lakes and we are building a new home right now so it’s going to take a good year to build," Melissa told the media website, elaborating, "We’re renting right now about two miles away from where we’re building so it works out really good and we’re happy. We wanted to get over to Franklin Lakes so that the kids could be in the school system starting in September so we didn't have to switch them in the middle of the year. I didn’t want Antonia to get any older before we had to pull her out of one school and switch her into another so we hurried up and we found a house to rent."

That makes sense to us!

The family sold their former Jersey home in Montville Township for a cool $3.8 million, so that they could start on their new abode. Joe Gorga, himself, is apparently in charge of the project.

"It's going to be a lot of work designing and building the new home, but Joe is an incredible builder and I'm excited to go back to where we started our family," Melissa gushed to Us Weekly over the summer.
