'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Reunion: Joe Gorga Opens Up About His Stripper Past
Last night marked the second and final installment of the Real Housewives of New Jersey's most explosive reunion to date.
After a tumultuous season of family drama and cheating rumors, it seems the biggest insult any Garden State housewife can give another is to threaten knowledge of a stripper past.
Both Teresa and Joe Giudice claimed Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita had secret Gentleman's Club experience tucked away on their resume, which both ladies hotly denied, almost leading to a physical altercation at some points.
Earlier in the season, Teresa rallied up an old pal, Kim D, who told the cameras she knew of a top-notch source who once worked with Melissa at a strip club.
Melissa vigorously shook her head no, which led her husband, Joe, to ask: "What's so wrong with being a stripper?"
After a little prodding from Andy Cohen, Joe admitted to a Magic Mike-like stripper past back when he was in college.
“Absolutely! Look at me! Yes I was. I did it a year . . . you know what?" he proudly revealed. "I had a G-string that looked like an elephant."
Joe claimed to earn "$2,000 a week" and hinted at loving all the female attention.
“I love it. When you got it, you gotta show it," he said about his fondness toward nudity.
