Melissa Gorga's stripper past has been circling the Bravo rumor mill since day one of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. This week, however, was the first time we got some actual confirmation via a salon manager named Angelo.

According to Angelo, Melissa used to work for him as an exotic dancer about eight years ago. Her clients were very sorry to see her go, he emphasized. When Angelo exposed Melissa as a stripper, Teresa Giudice's heart raced, and Kim "D." glowed with glee.

Yes, it is some juicy info, but is it really that big a deal? Not only was it a super long time ago, but Melissa wouldn't be the first Real Housewife to hit the pole (ahem, NeNe Leakes). Regardless, there's sure to be some explosive aftermath on the upcoming episode.

What do you guys think?
