Sonia: If you're a fan of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, you know drama's never too
far behind. But, these days cast member Melissa Gorga is focusing on some other things, including
a new book, new music and of course what to wear to the ultimate white party.
Sonia: There's something fun about a white party in the middle of the Summer.
Melissa: There is. I feel like everyone needs a good white party. It's fresh, it's clean,
everybody looks nice and neat, that's what I like about it.
Sonia: Tell me about this dress because I absolutely love it.
Melissa: It's cute, right? I was looking for white but I needed something to mix up in
it so this is what I've come up with. Do you approve?
Sonia: I over-approve. I love your style, you have such a fun, playful, yet it's sexy.
How would you describe your style?
Melissa: That's exactly how I do try to describe it. It's sexy with a little playfulness where
I don't like anything that's overly sexy and I don't like to be too conservative. I try
to find conservative and sexy all in one.
Melissa: You know I shop everywhere. I'm a big Neiman Marcus shopper believe it or not.
This dress is from Ambience Boutique in New Jersey, but they're also online at shopambience.com
They're one of my favorite websites.
Sonia: Any hair or makeup tips?
Melissa: I'm a makeup junkie right now. I'm obsessed with makeup. I have the most incredible

makeup, when you're on camera you need more makeup and I'm like how much more can I put
Sonia: So, you came onto Housewives on Season 3. it's Season 5 now. Where's the drama level
on Season 5?

gets very funny from here. It's gonna get funny. There's of course some more drama mixed
in, but there's gonna be a lot of fun times coming up that I think everyone's gonna laugh
and really enjoy.
Sonia: Your book... scheduled release date in September.
Melissa: Yes, September 17th. Love, Italian Style and it's all the secrets to my hot and
happy marriage. So I'm excited about that. Joe and I give all our little tips on how
to keep it fresh and sexy and just keep it flirty and playful.. and I truly believe that
when you treat your man like the king, you will be the queen in your house.
Sonia: Let's talk about your music career.
Melissa: I just recorded my new single. It's called Never Let Me Go. I started working
with Johnny Wright who is an amazing music manager. He works with Justin Timberlake and
Akon and he did Britney and he's done everybody, so for him to be jumping on with me, it's
