Despite the fact Melissa and her husband, Joe, decided to close their restaurant after not even a year, Melissa is making it apparent to her fans that they won’t be working on too many projects at once. During a chat with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, Gorga said they’re “moving to a new location.”
Melissa said their restaurant has been so busy that they need new management because of a line going out the door. The reality star added she and her husband are “making it bigger” and she stressed for her fans and followers not to go to the old location.
According to the restaurateur, “that location is not ours,” and her fans should stay tuned to hear “a lot more.” Earlier in the day on the Morning Breath show, she stated they are “overwhelmed” by the number of customers walking through the entrance.
However, despite the good news, there was a “major situation, unfortunately.” Gorga revealed there were “shady things going on” behind closed doors and they weren’t particularly fond of the management and how they ran the restaurant.
A source who spoke with Us Weekly on Wednesday said Joe is angry because of his co-owners being dishonest with him. The insider claimed Joe was “furious” and he felt “duped” by their partnership.
Celebrity Insider reported yesterday that the other owners didn’t own up to their part of the deal which forced Joe and Melissa to back out.
Even though things went sour, Joe is no longer worried because his name wasn’t on the lease and he isn’t tied to the restaurant by law. The source claimed if that would’ve been the case, the situation could’ve been much worse.
