Best Reality TV Couples: Todd and Julie Christie, Melissa and Joe Gorga and others


A couple who shoots a show together! Reality shows have led to the end of many relationships, but these two are still strong, cameras and all that.

Melissa Gorga and her husband Joe Gorga made their television debut in the third season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which aired in 2011. The Bravo franchise has a reputation for testing even the strongest marriages, but the Gorgs have withstood it all—including a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic.

“We’re doing great,” the Bravo personality said of her husband, whom she married in 2004. — The pandemic was a bit severe. I think it brought out a lot of our real feelings.”

However, after talking about it, they came to a new understanding of each other. “We’re much better now,” she explained. “Perhaps it was useful for us to discuss this. I didn’t know how he was feeling, and I don’t think he understood where I was from.”

Todd Chrisley and Julie Chrisley, who married in 1996, have been hosting a reality show in the USA since 2014, “Chrisley Knows Best.” “I realized I was in love with her as soon as she walked into my friend’s house: this is the first night I met her,” the Georgia native told us about his wife in February 2022. — And the moment she entered the room, it was the only time before and after I caught my breath, except when I passed by the mirror. ”

In addition to filming the reality show together, the Chrisleys went on another journey together: to lose weight. “I’ve been a Nutrisystem partner for several years now, and I’ve officially lost 30 pounds,” Julie told us in January 2022. — It took a while. It really changed my lifestyle because I love cooking and I love eating. …When Todd saw the results I was getting, he decided to join me in a partnership plan.”

The family patriarch, for his part, lost almost 18 pounds after gaining excess weight during quarantine related to the pandemic. He thanked his wife for helping him stay on track when he took control of his health.

“I think Julie and I always knew we were better together, but we’re better at handling this weight because we’re responsible to each other,” Todd told us at the time. “I think with the partnership plan and with what Nutrisystem offered us, we were very successful because I lost 18 pounds. Now I’ve lost two and a half pounds less than in 1986, when I graduated from high school.”
