One of the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" cast members admitted to being a stripper in the past on the season 4 reunion, but it turned out not to be a housewife at all.
The culprit was actually Joe Gorga, the brother of cast member Teresa Giudice and husband of Melissa Gorga, who admitted he made several thousand dollars a night as a stripper in college during the third and final part of the "Real Housewives" reunion show on Sunday night.

The conversation began as the cast dissected rumors about whether principal cast member Jacqueline Laurita had once been an exotic dancer in Las Vegas.
Teresa's husband Joe Giudice claimed that Jacqueline's husband once told him he met Jacqueline when she was a stripper in Vegas. Jacqueline's husband Chris Laurita cleared the air and said the couple actually met at a trade show, but he pointed out how severe the cast was being about someone being a stripper.
"We're talking about strippers like we're talking about serial killers," he said.
The conversation spurred the reunion's host, Bravo executive Andy Cohen, to put the heat on Joe Gorga and get to the bottom of which cast member was actually a stripper.
"Speaking of strippers, I actually heard that you were a stripper of the Chippendales variety," Cohen said to Joe.
Joe was more than happy to admit his past as a stripper in college.
"Absolutely! Look at me! Yes I was. I did it a year. I had to, I made some money," he said.
The revelation tickled Cohen, who kept the topic alive for a little longer to share his surprise.
"In all the accusations going around about everyone being a stripper, how hilarious is it that Joe Gorga is the smoking gun?" Cohen said.
Gorga agreed, and he admitted further that he made as much as $2,000 a night during his stripping days.
"it was me! I have to admit it! I'm the smoking gun! You know what? I had a G-string, it looked like it was an elephant," Gorga said.
