Melissa Gorga is sick of people calling her a stripper, and rightfully so.

Rumors of Melissa’s former dirty profession have been swirling since at least last year when her alleged former boss Angelo Vrohidis confronted her at the Posche Fashion Show, but The Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers didn’t see the interaction until last night.

Although she has issued repeated denials that she ever stripped in the past, Melissa recently went one step further and tweeted a picture of her college degree, seemingly to prove that she was focused on her studies instead of taking her clothes off.

“My college degree;.) #rhonj,” Melissa tweeted alongside a picture of the document.

While the degree itself doesn’t prove that Melissa never stripped, we get that she was trying to respond to Teresa Giudice’s attack on her character — Tre also claimed that Melissa never worked as a teacher — by showing that she is a college graduate.
