Earlier this year in January, Melissa Gorga parted her way with her then-business partner, Jackie Beard Robinson. Things hit a bump for these former associates, who had been working together on Melissa's Montclair, NJ boutique, Envy, after a "difference of opinion on how the store should be run".
The events caused The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom and businesswoman, Melissa Gorga to temporarily shut the boutique down and she recently revealed that it was a dark time for her.

Melissa told The Daily Dish:
I was devastated when I parted with my business partner. I was pretty blindsided. I woke up one morning and it was completely emptied — and I'm talking about there wasn't even a hanger or a roll of tape left in Envy. So I laid on my couch and I cried for three days straight.

She later revealed that she found a new way to look at the situation with the help of her friends, she found a new way to look at the situation.
And one of my best friends and my husband came and literally pulled me off the couch and said 'You're gonna reopen the store. You got to get to New York. You got to go do new buying right now and get what you got to do.
