Joe and Melissa Gorga's money troubles could soon be a thing of the past, because has exclusively learned the reality TV starlet is pulling in over $1 million!

While the couple remains largely in debt — unable to afford the build on a dream house they were planning — Melissa's latest book venture combined with her role on the hit Bravo show, is bringing in big bucks for the family.

"Melissa Gorga is making over $1 million right now. Her salary and her book sales have pushed her into a 7-figure earning bracket," a source told Tom Murro .

"Unlike Teresa, she isn't worried about her finances because she has been quietly making good money and doesn't have nearly the expenses that the Giudice's do."

Melissa's co-stars and in-laws, Joe and Teresa Giudice are in dire legal and financial trouble — found guilty of fraud and tax evasion, the couple will face sentencing shortly and could land Teresa 27 months behind bars, while Joe could get five years and be deported back to his native Italy.


As previously reported, Melissa is earning around $250,000 for her season on RHONJ, and she's raking in big money on the sales of her 2013 book, Love Italian Style: The Secrets Of My Hot And Happy Marriage.

"Melissa has negotiated good deals with Bravo," the source continued.

"They've been willing to pay her well because she delivers the drama each season."
