On screen on The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6, Melissa Gorga is currently embroiled in some major drama in the middle of winter. But in the real world, the hot mama is actually living it up in the Bahamas, where she's flaunting her banging bod in a beautiful photoshoot.

Yesterday, Melissa posted the Instagram photo of herself above, writing, "In the Bahamas doing a photo shoot for@ginjerboutique #paradise." She looks fab in a red dress with cream accents from, presumably, Ginjer Unisex Boutique.

She also posted the photo to the left, which shows her in a flowy, clingy dress while standing in the water. "Hi Bahamas!" she wrote. You can also see her in a mini-trench and killer heels in this pic from the photoshoot.

Man, we're not sure what we're more jealous of — Melissa's amazing bod, or her beach vacay! It certainly looks like she's having lots of fun in the sun. She even saw some sharks. Cool!

This is all probably a great way for Melissa to keep her mind off the drama from months ago that is currently dominating Real Housewives of New Jersey — not that this trip stopped Melissa from writing her weekly Bravo blog, where she weighed in on the big fight.
