'Real Housewives' Melissa Gorga Performs 'On Display': What the Viewers Are Saying (Video)

During Sunday's episode, viewers voiced their thoughts on the housewife's pop debut.

After months of working on her single, “On Display,” The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Melissa Gorga was able to take her mind off the drama with her sister-in-law for a bit and took to the the stage for her first public performance of the song.

 

It all went down during a launch party for Caroline Manzo’s sons Chris and Albie Manzo’s new branding company and their client, BLK – a naturally black colored water. Gorga considered it a modest debut, but did she forget that millions of viewers would be tuning in to see the performance? I'm assuming that she didn't.

Compared to the other housewives who have released singles, I think we have a real contender here for the Kim Zolciak “Tardy For The Party” crown. Viewers’ opinions seemed equally split on the performance.Here’s a sampling of the tweets that I felt represented the range of opinions on Gorga’s performance.
