In a segment for 'Entertainment Tonight', the 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' cast member dons a fat suit to 'get a crowd reaction' in Times Square, New York City.
Melissa Gorga has hidden her slim figure under an unflattering fat suit for a TV show. The star of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" went undercover in Times Square, New York City on Monday, October 24 for a segment of "Entertainment Tonight" which will uncover whether overweight people are discriminated in America.
"I don't even know who I am looking at in the mirror," the reality star said of her appearance after putting on fake extra pounds covered with a pink tracksuit. The preparation for her temporary transformation, which involved make-up artists and designers, reportedly took five hours.
"Jersey Shore" guidette Snooki reportedly joined Gorga during the filming, and gushed that the 36-year-old looked "sexy" in her fat suit. The "ET" segment which features the Bravo star as a huge woman will air Thursday, October 27.
