Joe Gorga: My Marriage to Melissa Is Stronger Than Ever!
Take that, Teresa Giudice!
Giudice, 39, may have tried to poison her brother Joe Gorga's seven-year marriage to fellow Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa, 32, by telling him she'd leave him if a richer man came along, but as a new clip from Sunday's episode shows, the Gorgas' bond is stronger than ever.
Settling into a romantic dinner at home without their kids, Melissa tells Joe she has a major surprise in store. "This life I'm living right now is a dream come true, and I'm just happy, so I took all these things I'm feeling and made a ballad for you," she tells her husband, before debuting "How Many Times (Dear Joe)," which she recorded in the family's basement studio.

"I had these feelings that I can't explain," Joe later says in a voiceover. "She has proven to me that she loves and adores me and loves our life together. That's why I know she's an amazing woman and I'm going to spend the rest of my life with her."
Despite Giudice's insinuations on RHONJ's April 22 premiere, Melissa confirms that future episodes of the Bravo series will prove her sister-in-law wrong.
"It's very clear to everyone what she is trying to do, so I'm not going to get into it that much," Melissa recently blogged. "I think watching me and Joe [on the show], it's quite obvious how we feel about each other."
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Sunday at 10 p.m. (EST).
