‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’: Melissa Gorga’s diet secret — exercise

Melissa has no real secret.

For any television star, one of the biggest challenges is always going to be finding a way to stay in shape with there being so much public scrutiny coming in your direction. As many of us know, this sort of attention is magnify when you are a star of a show like “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” — one that seems to value the superficial things such as appearance in such high regard.

So how does one star in Melissa Gorga keep in shape? Speaking in a new interview, one of this season’s new cast members exclaims that really her secret to success has nothing to do with diet — and everything to do with exercise:

“There is no dieting going on in the Gorga household! I can’t diet! I stay active so I can eat what I want … I’m not a huge meat-and-potatoes girl. I tend to go for lighter meals, because that’s what I enjoy.”

New episodes of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” season 3 air Sunday nights on Bravo — but before you get set to watch this new installment in just over 24 hours, check out the video below featuring some bonus footage from the season thus far.
