RHONJ Husband Says He’s ‘So Afraid’ of His Wife

The cast of RHONJ.

Bravo Dolores Catania says the RHONJ season 12 reunion was "the worst."

“Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Joe Gorga appeared on an October 2022 episode of his wife, Melissa Gorga’s podcast, “Melissa Gorga on Display.” The father of three shared that his wife will reject his attempts at physical intimacy. He then noted he empathized with Maroon Five singer Adam Levine, who wed model Behati Prinsloo in 2014. According to Us Weekly, Levine has been accused of having “a year-long fling” with social media personality Sumner Stroh.  

“I give [Melissa] a wink, I go to grab her, ‘no,’ and then I start thinking of Adam Levine, and I heard that he got caught texting everybody, he’s texting all these girls. I’m like the poor guy, he probably did the same thing,” said the RHONJ personality.

Joe Gorga also stated that he did not believe it was a “big deal” for Levine to allegedly send messages of a sexual nature to Stroh. His wife proceeded to inquire whether he thinks “that it’s okay to DM and text other women.” He responded by asserting that he was fearful of his wife. 

“I’m going to be honest with you, I’m so afraid of this woman. This woman — she’s got my Instagram on lockdown, she’s got my text messages,” stated the father of three. 

Melissa Gorga asserted that she does not “read [his] text” and asked her husband if he had “a guilty conscious.” He stated that was not the case, but reiterated he understood Levine. 

“Adam Levine obviously had a little more freedom, the poor guy. He probably came home from work, he went into the studio and he tried to come up with all these songs and he was having a bad day and he just couldn’t do it,” said the 43-year-old. “And then he came home, he went to touch his — isn’t she a model? I mean, I don’t know, maybe the poor guy didn’t do anything, maybe he just wanted to feel something like ‘hey you’re hot.’ Sometimes you just need that.”
