Last season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Melissa Gorga had to defend herself against accusations that she used to work as a stipper, and on Season 5 — which is currently airing — the married mom of three will be forced to defend her marriage to Joe Gorga after an ex comes forward and claims that she cheated on her man even after they were married.

Several months ago, we told you about the ex,
Brian “Bulldog” Bowen, and his explosive claims, but Melissa is speaking out — and shooting down her ex! The “happily married” gal told Life & Style earlier this year that Brian’s cheating accusation is “all talk with absolutely no proof to back it up.”

And even though an insider is corroborating Bulldog’s story and claiming that her former flame has “a lot of dirt on Melissa,” those close to the H’wife insist she has never cheated on her husband.

A source close to Melissa reveals that Bulldog just wants his turn in the spotlight. “She and Bulldog dated on-and-off for years. Then she met Joe and started her family, and that’s all in the past,” the insider says. “Bulldog’s spreading these claims now because he wants his 15 minutes of fame.”

Other than the comments above, Melissa has been quiet about this latest scandal, but she has no fears that her marriage will suffer because of it. “This is only making Joe and me stronger,” she declared. “I can’t even begin to keep track of all the lies. Everyone is coming for their 15 minutes of fame.”
