Joe and Melissa Gorga Are Unloading Their Fancy $3.8 Million Mansion to Move Away From His Sister

Perhaps Joe and Melissa Gorga are operating under the theory that absence, and a little distance, will make his jealous sister's heart grow fonder? The Gorgas of Real Housewives of New Jersey have listed their swanky 13,500-square-foot home in Montville, New Jersey for $3.8 million, with plans to move to the Franklin Lakes community 16 miles away.

That's 16 miles away from where Teresa Giudice -- Joe Gorga's sister and the reality TV nemesis of both him and his wife -- lives. Giudice and her husband Joe have been warring with the Gorgas (and pretty much everyone else on RHoNJ), with tensions growing every episode.

The Gorgas' home, which Joe Gorga built in 2009 and which will certainly look familiar to RH viewers, features six bedroom, seven bathrooms, a screening room, pool room, study with wall-to-ceiling built-in bookcases, loads of marble and stucco and is set on more than two acres of land, Forbes reports.

"I’m a builder. I custom-built the houses we have lived in and will do the same with our next one," Joe Gorga told US Weekly. "We tried Montville, but it just wasn’t for us. We want to go back to Franklin Lakes, which is closer to where I work, and we’re looking at a couple of properties now."

Closer to work, further from the Giudices … yep, that makes sense.

Check out the slideshow below of the Gorgas' home, and tell us:
