'Jersey Housewife'

Call Me a Stripper Again ...


12/6/2011 1:18 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"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."

It all went down over Thanksgiving weekend ... saliva was exchanged, embraces were shared ... and they probably banged the hell out of each other.

Ashton Kutcher & Lea Michele

Friendly ... or Flirting?


Ashton Kutcher
arrived solo last night at the premiere of "New Year's Eve" -- was he flirting with one of his co-stars when he got there?

Kutcher and Lea Michele got mighty close on the arrivals line, posing for a few touchy-feely photos together as Lea held onto Kutcher's head, laughing.

The co-stars are both living the single life now, as Ashton and Demi Moore recently announced their separation following infidelity rumors. Lea also recently split from her boyfriend of a year, Theo Stockman, back in September.

"It was such an honor working with you. I cannot thank you enough," Lea tweeted at Ashton after the premiere.

Check out more photos above -- think they were flirting ... or just acting like a couple of cute co-stars?

Scoping Out Ricky Martin

in Miami Beach House Hunt

Ricky Martins 12 million dollar homeJay-Z and Beyonce went mansion-hunting last week in Miami Beach -- and one of the SUPER-EXPENSIVE homes they checked out belongs to one Señor Ricardo Martin ... TMZ has learned.

We confirmed with the realtor that J&B took a walk-through the 9,491 square-foot ocean-front pad  last week -- but it's unclear if the couple is interested in making an offer.

According to official records, Ricky's trying to score a hefty profit on the estate -- because he bought it in 2005 for $10,000,000 .. and now he's listed the house at $12.5 mil.

The place is pretty sick -- boasting 7 beds, 10 baths, a swimming pool ... and it's located in one of the ritziest parts of Miami Beach, close to Miami Heat superstars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

As for Ricky, neighbors tell us he was a great neighbor -- and they're sad to see him leave.

Kristin Chenoweth Busts Out

at American Country Awards


The American Country Awards are going down tonight in Las Vegas -- where all eyes were all over host Kristin Chenoweth and her very revealing dress!

Dressed in all green, the Broadway star-turned-country singer left little to the imagination at the MGM Grand Monday night -- showing off some crazy cleavage and a whole lotta leg.

Keeping it classy as always was Carrie Underwood, who wore some killer heels, and Jordin Sparks -- who looked amazing in a white dress.

I always thought the bar maids in a strip club were as likely to be prostitutes as the strippers.

This useless bimbo needs to get over herself. She's the ugliest woman I've seen next to Snooki. As far as sueing goes, she has to prove malicious intent. Calling her a stripper does not in itself foster malicious intent. Now if someone called her an ugly, hooker looking, cheap bimbo stripper, that might be cause for action...and I'll bet she knows where the action is.

As usual, TMZ, your stories are pathetic and without any real merit or social need.

Who "banged" whom is beneath any intelligent conversation, even the idiots from AOL who continue to pay for your services.

AOL, are you listening?

Let's get some higher-level news so we can have some higher level conversations! This bottom-dweller stuff is rancid.

Maybe she never stripped WHILE she was a bartender but she was a stripper at on time. She is fooling the media people with that trick.

Some of these so called reality stars make me sick. They can't act and I think most of the time they set up the things that are suppose to be real. Kim Kardasian being the worst, along with Dog the Bounty Hunter and the Pit Boss. They also forget they have a past. They can set up things during filming but they can't change the past.

Melissa is a wonderful girl and a wonderful mom and wife. All you people out there are just jealous of her fame and fortune. Melissa, don't listen to anything like this.

Shouldn't a stripper be at least mildly attractive? She is/was definitely not a stripper.

Kristin Chenoweth claims to be a christian, yet the way she dresses and the parts she plays don't match her claim. Maybe by "christian" she means as opposed to muslim, scientologist, mormon, catholic, hindu, etc.

some women think it's fashionable to dress like a stripper; its done in bad taste no matter who the designer is or how well you wear your makeup. If you look the part-better learn to roll with the punches.

Call girl, stripper, name her what you like, but Melissa Gorga is disgusting. She's sooo conceited. I used to watch the "Housewives" but once she came on I stopped. She thinks she's utterly gorgeous, and she is just a hot-headed Italian, with average looks and body at best. Nothing special,and she has a big mouth! Very low class.
