Bear in mind, I didn’t say good or talented. But at least Melissa Gorga treated her music debut like a viable career option when she performed “On Display” on last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Before her, we had people like Simon van Kempen warbling out the lyrics of “I Am Real” in the Bravo clubhouse on Watch What Happens Live. How much more self-indulgent can you get!
And yes, it is a sad state of affairs that the definition of “professional singer” involves a slutty outfit and massive amounts of Auto-Tune. The best moment of this video might be Melissa’s husband Joe Gorga making some sort of “thank God for my hot wife!” motion at the ceiling.
