Melissa Gorga’s Instagram followers aren’t fans of her interior design choices — and they weren’t afraid of letting her know.
The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star was trolled in her own comments section on Thursday after sharing a glimpse at her latest home improvements — including new black fabric chandeliers.
“Foyer design???? Its all about simple elegance this time. The ceiling design is so simple yet so important,” the 43-year-old wrote alongside a video of her new “glam chandeliers.”
However, her 2.7 million followers were less than impressed by the three large, studded light fixtures.
“It’s giving babadook in the Valentino rock stud shoes,” one person joked, while another person called the lamps “hideous.”Fans had mixed reactions after Melissa Gorga showed off her new chandeliers.

“It’s almost like Victoria’s Secret isn’t doing so well anymore so they decided to repurpose their holiday lingerie pieces into light fixtures ????,” a third chimed in.
“She better get her patronus ready dementors are coming,” another added, with a fifth person saying “it appears as though you covered your lights with three huge garbage bags.”
Melissa and Joe Gorga, who have been building their dream house for over a year, finally moved into their New Jersey mansion this week — but just like their foyer, fans have had a lot to say about their new digs.Melissa and Joe Gorga have been custom building their home for over one year.
“The one that I want???????? Always wanted a chic white brick house,” Melissa wrote alongside a video of the sprawling exterior. “We love what we do????????Work hard play hard. Can’t wait to show you inside.”
While some people sent the controversial couple congrats on the “beautiful” home, others said it looked “like a [sic] institution instead of a home.”
“It’s giving holiday inn express,” one person wrote, while another person said, “every element of this house looks accidental and unharmonized.”The reality star has shared snippets of the home online.
Despite the harsh housewarming, fans of the Bravo franchise are sure to see more of the new home on “RHONJ” — if the Gorgas even come back.
During BravoCon last month, co-star Jennifer Aydin said that the couple’s future on the show was in jeopardy and that they were “holding on for dear life.”The 43-year-old didn’t respond to any of the negative comments.
The comments didn’t sit right with the Gorgas who got into an altercation with Aydin at a hotel just days later.
Melissa later spoke out about the now-infamous, drink-throwing incident, saying the 45-year-old should have stayed in her own “lane.”Filed under bravo , celebrity homes , celebrity social media , instagram , interior design , joe gorga , melissa gorga , real housewives , real housewives of new jersey , 11/23/22

I can’t afford presents for my little girl or Christmas dinner this year – I’ve worked hard for years & can’t believe it
A SINGLE mum has revealed her devastation over only being able to afford two Christmas gifts for her daughter this year.
Sally Luck, 38, from Bromley, Greater London, has resorted to using Facebook Marketplace to find second-hand bits for little Charlotte-Rose.4Sally Luck, from Bromley, is struggling to buy Christmas gifts for little Charlotte-RoseCredit: Sally Luck 4The youngster, now two, has been upset over not being able to play with toys that need electricityCredit: Sally Luck
Like many families, she's struggled as the cost of living soars and, due to her daughter's disability, struggles to hold down a job..
Charlotte-Rose, now two-and-a-half, was born six weeks prematurely and has an autoimmune condition, which leads to frequent hospitalisation.
Sally claims she has been left in a financial rut because potential employers are put off by her need to take time off for regular hospital appointments.
With Christmas just over three weeks away, the single mum is preparing herself for a lean festive celebration.
She told The Sun: "I can’t even afford to buy any presents this year.
"All I’ve got my daughter is a doll and a toy kitchen from Facebook Marketplace and a coat costing £2 from a second-hand market.
"I can’t believe I’m in this position and know Christmas will be very different this year.
"I can’t afford to cook Christmas dinner – I am avoiding using the oven altogether because it costs so much and will have to make a cheap curry using the hob instead."Most read in FabulousAMY'S TRUTH GMA's Amy Robach breaks silence on 'romance' with cohost TJ HolmesMOVING ON GMA’s Amy ‘moves out of $5.2M marital home’ just days after ‘affair’ revealedIN WITH THE NEW DWTS execs to make 'huge shakeup' & 'could replace' host Tyra for season 32WHERE'S ROBIN?

We are not a third-world country... we shouldn’t have to choose between heating, food or taking the bus to the park!Sally Luck
Heartbreakingly, Sally says it's not the lack of new toys that will upset her daughter, but being unable to play with her favourite toy.
The item, a bubble tube with fish in it, has been taken out of her room because her mum can't afford to turn it on.
This has deeply upset the youngster, who has sensory issues and is awaiting an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) assessment.
Sally said: "Charlotte-Rose loves the lights on the tree and last year they were on for around six hours each day.
"This year they will be on for 15 minutes max – I can’t afford to switch them on for longer. She is going to be very upset.
"The thing she will care about most won’t be the lack of presents, it will be the tree lights."'Cut backs risk daughter's health'
It's not just the gifts. Sally says her daughter - who suffers from asthma and respiratory infections - is more likely to be hospitalised because she can't adequately heat their home.
"I can’t afford to heat the house properly so I take Charlotte-Rose to the library where it is warm," she said.
"We are not a third-world country, we shouldn’t be in this position, we shouldn’t have to choose between heating, food or taking the bus to the park."
To reduce the strain on her purse-strings, Sally has been using Little Peas Baby Bank to get clothing and basics for her daughter and also local food banks.
She said: "I was so grateful to get some help, but I had really mixed emotions. I felt embarrassed.
"Using the food bank had such a psychological impact on me. When I cooked dinner with the food I’d been given I cried – I realised for the first time I couldn’t provide for her.4Charlotte-Rose has an auto-immune condition, which severely affects her healthCredit: Sally Luck 4Mum Sally has been forced to take her child to a library to keep warmCredit: Sally Luck
"I felt ashamed and embarrassed. She’s my daughter, I should be able to."
Sally also has an older daughter, Chloe, 21, who is going to give her sister a battery-operated lava lamp for Christmas to replace the toy she loves so much.
"I had Chloe when I was 16 and things were much easier for me then," she said.
"I was working, I didn’t worry about money and she never had second-hand clothes.
‘I really worry about the next generation. Budgeting should be taught to children in school. It’s awful when every day is a struggle.
"I feel that the decision-makers need to have more discussions with those of us most affected so that they are more able to relate.
"I contacted my energy provider and they said, ‘We can provide an electric blanket.’
"But I can’t afford to plug in the electric blanket… There needs to be more help available for the most vulnerable."'Majority of disabled families hit hard'
Sadly, Sally is not alone - a survey of 3,000 disabled families by Contact - a charity for families with disabled children - found 71 per cent are cutting down on presents because of energy price rises.
Una Summerson, Contact's Head of Campaigns, said: “It is a really desperate situation for many families with disabled children right now.
"They have always had higher than average costs and this has been magnified by the current cost of living crisis.
"Our research shows they are paying £1,600 more than the average household on energy due to running essential electrical care and medical equipment.
“They are having to make tough choices about what to spend their ever-shrinking cash on and Christmas is the latest challenge.
"We’ve heard parents saying they are restricting themselves to buying a smaller number of presents for their children this year, or not buying for any adults in the family.Read More on The US Sun'FROZEN' 'Snarling' Amy 'showed suppressed anger' when breaking silence on TJ 'affair'BUMPIN' ALONG Keke Palmer reveals she's pregnant on SNL in shocking live TV moment
"It is made harder because toys for children with additional needs can be up to eight times as expensive."
