"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."

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?

Jay-Z and Beyonce
Scoping Out Ricky Martin
in Miami Beach House Hunt
Jay-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.
