'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."

Absolutely. "Stripper" is entirely inappropriate language .. "pole dancer" is more appropriate.

Maybe a stripper in New Jersey, but she'd go broke stripping in California, Florida or Vegas.

Hmm, I am beginning to doubt Melissa Whorega was ever a stripper? Have any of you seen her perform her song On Display? It's bad enough she can't lip synch to save her life but her dance moves are horrific. I say whore.
