Me and Joe! on Twitpic They’re moving on, in more ways than one. Bravo reality stars, Joe and Melissa Gorga, are planning to move out of the New Jersey mansion that they proudly showed off on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. According to Us Weekly, the couple have recently listed their Montville Township, New Jersey home for a reported $3.8 million. The home, which was built by Joe Gorga in 2000, boasts six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, four fireplaces, and a three-car garage, Us reports. Unlike some of their Real Housewives franchise counterparts, this couple claims that they are not leaving their beautiful home as a result of financial trouble. In fact, Gorga claims that the next house will be even better. “Wait till you see the next house I build,” Gorga told the magazine. The couple, who originally moved to Montville to be closer to Joe Gorga’s sister Teresa and her four children – they are now somewhat estranged – are no longer happy living there. “We tried Montville, but it just wasn’t for us. We want to go back to Franklin Lakes, which is closer to where I work, and we’re looking at a couple of properties now,” Gorga said. However, according to his wife Melissa, this will be the last move for the two and their family. “I absolutely love our current house and will be said to leave, but Joe is an incredible builder, so I have no doubt that I’ll love the next house just as much. Although this is the last time he is getting me to pack-up!” she told Us. The Daily Mail reports that this isn’t the first time that the lavish home has been put on the market. Apparently, in 2009 it was listed for $4.1 million but was later taken off the market in 2010.
