'Jersey Housewife'

Call Me a Stripper Again ...

AND I'LL SUE YOUR ASS!

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Melissa Gorga is adamant she never, ever STRIPPED during her stint as a bartender at Lookers Gentleman's Club in New Jersey ... and now she's threatening to sue anyone who says otherwise.

Gorga's been hounded by the stripper talk ever since a former Lookers employee began calling BS on Melissa to the media ... insisting she was an exotic dancer at the club.

But Gorga claims she can PROVE she never got naked -- unearthing payroll sheets which list her as a "bar maid" ... and getting a sworn affidavit from longtime club owner Chris Kontos, in which he testifies Melissa "worked solely in the capacity as a bartender."

Gorga has also hired attorney James J. Leonard Jr. -- who tells TMZ, "At this time we are aggressively pursuing the commencement of litigation against any and all individuals, in any jurisdiction, who have or continue to disseminate false statements against Melissa Gorga."

Was Melissa a stripper or an exotic dancer? I had heard that Melissa was an exotic dancer in a club and that she was very popular with ALL of the men

I can't believe TMZ even did a story about her.. I'm sure she is jumping up and down that someone is finally paying attention to her. And all the "we love Melissa, she is so nice, Teresa is bad" comments ? - I'm guessing those comments are coming from Melissa herself and her crazy "I wanna be on TV " sisters. Those people disgust me.

She is right. You should never call a whore a stripper. They are quite different.

It's so obvious the kiss ass comments are from Melissa's family. Come out come out where ever you are. Melissa is a famewhore, prostitution whore, & stripper. She joined the show and aired her dirty laundry out. Ugly bitch. Teresa will always be better then you. The only reason you're relevant is because of Teresa. KNOW THAT!
