Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga has downsized from her $3.8 million McMansion to this more modest Colonial home.
The traditional home is in Franklin Lakes, the tony area that is home to many of the women on the reality show.
As Melissa and Joe Gorga build their new home, they're living in this home with hardwood floors and a brick abode. "This furniture was from the previous owners," a source told RadarOnline.com.
Not quite as luxurious as their last house, Melissa has been living here during filming of season 6.
The Colonial home is in the school district where Melissa and Joe wanted their children to attend.
Melissa's rental home has a vast kitchen where she can show off her cooking skills.
Far different from the gilded home she and Joe previously lived in, Melissa is living in this downsized Jersey home.
Melissa's house was sparsely decorated by the owners, but they're just renting as they build a new McMansion.
Melissa's rental is not decorated nearly as elaborately as her old house.
The Jersey home has a lush backyard.
RadarOnline.com can reveal that Melissa Gorga’s Colonial rental home is a far cry from her luxurious McMansion that she moved out of before filming began on the sixth season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
