Melissa & Joe Gorga Rent a Downsized $4,500/Month New Jersey Panty-Dropping Palace

While Teresa Giudice is hoping to dodge jail time under her own swanky roof in New Jersey, her sister-in-law moved into new digs.

And it’s not quite what you’d expect from the high-rolling reality star who just sold her colossal crib for $3.8 million. Let CB! take you inside for the first time.

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga and house hubby Joe Gorga are calling this $4,500 a month Franklin Lakes pad their temporary home away from home while their dream house is being built.

Coming in at 3,700 square feet, it’s a far cry from the 13,500 square foot Montville Township McMansion made famous on the hit Bravo show.

We're sure Melissa will try to fancy up the place with her over-the-top taste in decor, but the brick Colonial already has a few built-in charming details from hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings to a pretty parklike backyard for their three kiddos.

Though it’s missing all the bells and whistles of Chateau Gorga -- 6 bedrooms, 6.5 baths, Italian marble, sweeping double staircases, decorative moldings, 4 fireplaces, enormous kitchen, billiards room, screening room, and library, to boot.

Melissa's just going to have to settle with 4 bedrooms and (gasp) 2 baths for now. We can’t wait to see how she handles this next season.

The upside -- they're saving a ton on housekeeping.

    Hey, you all got your information wrong. The Gorgas are not renting this house. I emailed his office and they are not happy that you all are started this rumor. Please update your post for this man's sake. The listing is in this link. Homes By Richard
