There’s certainly a long history of Housewife hopefuls looking to cash in on their Bravo notoriety with a ticket to the big time, and all with varied success. Whether they’re telling us not to be “tardy for the party,” teaching us that “money can’t buy you class,” or asking to be “real close”,  we all cringed (but secretly loved) the auto-tuned atrocities that have entered the Housewives Music Hall of Fame.

This week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, however, proved that Melissa Gorga was looking to top all the others, as shown by her extravagant photoshoot, complete with a rose petal garnished room and huge wind machine. Even husband Joe Gorga couldn’t stop the fledgling prima donna from dreaming big, and possibly shopping for music labels instead of groceries sometime in the near future.

So, what do you think? Does Melissa Gorga have a chance at real stardom or is she just another reality star reject?
