'RHONJ' Star Joe Gorga Trolled By Fans For Letting 8th Grade Daughter Out in This Dress

By Whitney Vasquez

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Joe Gorga may want to stay off the Internet today because fans are trolling him for allowing his daughter out of the house wearing this dress to her 8th grade dance.

His daughter, Antonia, wore a hip-hugging, red dress to her middle school dance on Thursday and people have mixed feelings.

Some think it's not an appropriate dress for a 13-year-old to wear, but many are just LOLing when they think about protective Papa Joe.

The comments are hilarious!!

"Joe must be having a heart attack," one person wrote. "He's at the gun range right now practis[sic]ing," teased another.

Other responses include: "I can picture Joe volunteering at the dance to keep an eye out" and "he must be holding his heart" and "Joe Gorga must be freaking out already."


Joe's wife, Melissa Gorga, didn't seem to be sweating the dress choice, posting several pictures of their teenage daughter.

"And just like that she’s off to the 8th grade dance. I can’t believe she’ll be in high school next year," she captioned the snaps. "I’m so proud of the strong, good hearted, athletic young lady she has turned into."


Antonia is seen wearing a short, form-fitting dress with a strappy back.

She paired the red number with beige heels and simple jewelry including her name around her neck.

While many fans are shocked this is how kids in 8th grade are dressing, it doesn't seem to phase any of the housewives. Several of the ladies from different franchises showed love to Joe and Melissa's little girl.

Melissa's "RHONJ" co-stars sent positive replies their daughter's way too.
