What you see is what you get with Melissa Gorga. On Real Housewives of New Jersey, she's that beautiful, ambitious woman with a successful career who puts her family first. In fact, her stable yet sexy marriage to lovable Joe is a welcome antidote to the constant fighting and backbiting on the show. Despite the pressure of life in the spotlight, she makes marriage look easy. How does she do it? Melissa's overriding principle: Treat your husband like a king. And in return, you'll be treated like a queen. In Love Italian Style, Melissa shares her (and his) secrets to relationship success - generations-tested old-fashioned values served up with a modern, sexy twist. To her, the four tenets to a happy marriage are respect, honesty, loyalty, and passion (underscore passion). By sharing her and Joe's life together - from the story of their first date to how they keep it hot in the bedroom a decade later - Melissa admits that, yes, marriage has been a lot of work, but the rewards are ten-fold. With her time-tested strategies, you can Gorganize your own relationship, strengthen your bond, and amp up the passion for lifelong bliss.
MELISSA GORGA and her husband, Joe Gorga, have been married for nine years. They have three beautiful children-Antonia, Gino, and Joey. A housewife and proud of it, Melissa blends old-school Italian values with a modern lifestyle that allows her to follow her passion. As a recording artist with multiple songs breaking the top ten Dance/R&B charts on iTunes, including On Display and How Many Times, she has a blossoming music career. Love Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage is her first book, and she hopes you have as much fun reading it as she did writing it!
