Melissa Gorga and her husband Joe Gorga are one of Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s cutest pairs. The two seem completely in love and after 7 years of marriage and 3 children, they still can’t get enough of each other. So how did it all begin?
For their first date, Joe invited Melissa to his place for a home cooked meal. “He wanted to make me dinner, which I later learned was a fake dinner! I found out once I moved in with him; I realized that he ordered it from the Italian place down the street,” Melissa reveals. But it’s the thought that counts, right? Joe wanted to impress his future wife and if he wasn’t capable to do it alone, he has every right to call for back-up. He probably shouldn’t have lied, but it worked out in the end, so no harm done.
Joe didn’t just order the food and have it waiting for her. He did everything in his power to make his place look as if someone had just been slaving in the kitchen for hours. Melissa adds, “That night he put it all in pots on the stove as if he made it himself. It was like a big scam and I fell right for it.”
Who would have thought that a scam could have worked out so perfectly?
