BUZZ: Melissa Gorga shuts down report she wants ‘RHONJ’ spinoff: ‘I like where I am’

Melissa Gorga says she isn’t going anywhere.

The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star took to Instagram Thursday to shut down a report claiming she’s interested in leaving the ensemble cast to star in her own spinoff show.

“I actually don’t want a spinoff,” the Envy boutique owner commented on a post about the rumors.

“I like where I am 💁🏻‍♀️.”

OK! Magazine had recently cited sources claiming that both Gorga, 44, and her estranged sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, were gunning for their own separate shows outside of the popular reality series.

“She’s not having fun anymore [on ‘RHONJ’],” one source said of Gorga, who’s been a “Housewife” since Season 3 (2011).

“She’s given it her all for years and feels she can do it by herself with her family and break out on her own.”

“I like where I am 💁🏻‍♀️,” Gorga said amid her ongoing feud with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice.

Another source claimed to the outlet that Giudice, 51, “has always thought she should have a spinoff,” adding that the OG would “love” to document her new marriage to Luis “Louie” Ruelas.

The couple actually did get their own wedding special, which aired between the Season 13 finale and the three-part reunion.

The first source went on to allege that “Teresa wants to leave if Melissa stays.”

Giudice has not yet weighed in on the rumors, nor has her rep responded to Page Six’s request for comment.

However, as we exclusively reported, “RHONJ” — which was supposed to begin production on Season 14 earlier this month — has been put “on pause” amid the ongoing feud between the sisters-in-law.

In May, insiders told us Bravo did not know how to proceed under the strained conditions and that no one had been offered a contract to return — nor had anyone been fired.

At the time, the latest update the cast had received was that the network was not even sure cameras would pick back until 2024.

The Season 13 reunion, which concluded last week, was particularly explosive.

At one point, Teresa accused Melissa and her husband, Joe Gorga, of being responsible for putting her and her ex-husband, Joe Giudice, “in jail.”

“Teresa, we didn’t commit mortgage fraud — you did, dollface. Like, stop,” Melissa responded to the allegation.

Later, Teresa called Melissa “fake and phony” and a “gaslighting bitch” who has “dragged [her] through the mud for 10 years.”

Tensions boiled over once the men made their way to the stage, as Joe referred to his sister’s husband, Ruelas, as a “woman abuser.”
