Real Housewife Melissa Gorga accused of promoting marital rape in new book

Melissa Gorga, who stars on Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” is facing tough scrutiny since she and her husband Joe appear to promote marital rape in her newly published book.

In her book, “Love Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage,” Mr. Gorga also contributes to the content, the Daily Mail first reported.

“Men, I know you think your woman isn’t the type who wants to be taken,” he wrote. “But trust me, she is. Every girl wants to get her hair pulled once in a while. If your wife says ‘no,’ turn her around, and rip her clothes off. She wants to be dominated.”

“Women don’t realize how easy men are. Just give us what we want,” he said.

The couple’s sex life has also faced scrutiny because Mrs. Gorga frequently mentions how arguments are swept under the rug with sex, or arguments start because there’s not enough of it, the report said.

“In the beginning, Joe wanted to have sex every single day, at least once, if not twice or three times…If I didn’t give it to him once a day, he’d get upset,” she wrote. “I can do something that pisses him off on a Monday, but if we had sex on Sunday night, it blows over more easily. But if we haven’t done it for two days and I give him attitude? It could be a huge fight.”

It’s also mentioned in the book that Mrs. Gorga has to be home when her husband gets home. Mr. Gorga wrote that marriage is about mutual respect.

“After a fourteen-hour workday, if a man comes home and there’s no dinner on the table, and his wife is on the phone, watching TV, or on the computer ignoring him, he won’t feel respected,” he wrote.

“I think it’s controversial in many ways because we do really live an old school type of marriage but with a modern twist,” Mrs. Gorga said in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight.

The Gorgas have three children, and Melissa said she’s be happy to give the book to her daughter when she gets married someday.
