Earlier this month, we heard that an ex-boyfriend of Melissa Gorga’s named Brian “Bulldog” Bowen was a part of the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 5 storyline. And while characters from the past are nothing new to this bunch, Bulldog was promising to drop a “bombshell” that would surely damage his ex. 

Namely, Bulldog alleged that Melissa slept with him after she married Joe Gorga, and that she only married him for his money. Melissa was first to firmly deny these accusations, and now her hubby is following suit.“I don’t even know this guy,” Joe tells Life & Style.

And while Joe is aware that rumors like this come with the territory for big time reality stars, he is, of course, quick to defend his bride and their marriage.

“We knew what to expect and what I was getting into. If there were skeletons in my closet I would never have gone on the show. There’s a lot of lies and a lot of accusations … but I love my wife.”

Aww, Joe, you’re making us tear up! Are you surprised that Joe is defending Melissa? Sound off below!
