Look out, ATL! Melissa Gorga is bringing her knack for stirring the pot sexy sass to Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Melissa, who oh-so-innocently instigated the Twins vs. Amber hair-pulling incident of last night's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6, went on Watch What Happens Live after the dramatic show. She and her husband Joe talked to Andy Cohen about all the feuding (the audience was firmly Team Twins), but Melissa also talked about her Housewives friends in other franchises.
Melissa said she went to see Lady Gaga with her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills buddy Kyle Richards, and noted that Mother Monster is a huge Housewives fan. Andy asked if Melissa kept in touch with other H'wives in other cities. Melissa said she has some favorites, and Joe reminded her that they just saw NeNe Leakes. "We just filmed an episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta," Melissa said. Andy, who should really know these things, replied, "Are you kidding?"
Melissa explained, "No, they were filming HSN." (Both NeNe and Melissa have HSN lines.) "And [husbands] Gregg and Joe were so amazing on camera, they were like 'We're just going to film this for the show.' And it was nice, 'cause I was walking off, she was walking on. We were supporting each other. I love her too."
Nice. So it sounds like a rare occasion when neither Melissa nor NeNe will be stepping in drama, they'll just be promoting their lines, and their very watchable husbands.
Are you excited to see Melissa on RHOA? Disappointed that she won't actually be joining the mix beyond this particular HSN episode? Relieved that she won't be taking over the entire franchise?
Catch the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 Sundays at 8 p.m. ET.
