Melissa Is a Reality TV A-lister
The New Jersey native has been a member of the RHONJ cast since the show’s third season in 2011. Her sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, is an original cast member on the series — and their family feuds have been entertaining fodder for fans over the years.
During season 10 in 2020, Teresa was reportedly making $62,000 an episode. Considering Melissa’s status on the show has become as revered as Tre’s, we wouldn’t be surprised if she was making nearly the same amount. However, it is unclear exactly how much she rakes in from participating in the legendary program.
