Why am I selling my house?
There are some of the most ridiculous rumors out there that we can’t afford it and that we are broke. Joe and I have worked very hard for many years to get where we are today. When we first started the show, we only owned one building. Now we own four or five. Joe was the only one bringing in money for the last few years, because I didn’t work and I was with the kids. Now we are both bringing in money. Why on earth would anyone think we are in that position? It’s just ridiculous. We do pay our mortgage and we are NOT broke.
There is a wonderful thing called the internet where you can look up public records and find out what we paid for our house, the rate on our mortgage, pretty much everything. The truth is this: we put our house up to get away from the negativity. I have to protect my family.
AT THE 2:20 MARK: Melissa says that her Montville house is SOLD and she and JoeyOrgan are now building their new house in FranklinLakes. This chat with the non-stop-gum-chewing Melissa is from her visit to a Florida Home and Garden Show eight months ago, March 2014… where people actually paid to see her! Before she explains her house situation, she also says that people are begging her to write another book; that she is STILL working on her “singing” career with JohnnyWright; she doesn’t watch TV (except for Bravo); and she’s very “hands on” with her kids… except when her mother, aunt and sisters are watching them:
