Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Melissa Gorga has something to celebrate besides her nine-year anniversary with husband Joe.

The Bravo reality star has just sold her six bedroom, seven bathroom home in Montville, N.J., US Weekly reported Tuesday, for the full asking price of $3.8 million.

The Gorgas first put their mansion on the market back in May of last year. Joe, a developer, had the property custom-built for the family.

The family is moving back to the neighborhood of Franklin Lakes, where fellow "Real Housewives" cast member Caroline Manzo lives.

“I feel like this was meant to be. It happened just in time for the kids to start their first of day of school,” Melissa said of the transition.

“It’s going to be a lot of work designing and building the new home, but Joe is an incredible builder and I’m excited to go back to where we started our family.”

"This is what I love to do. I can't wait to begin building another dream home for my family," Joe said.

The Gorgas have recently had to fend off infidelity rumors. On Sunday night's episode of the show, the "Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage" author denied accusations that she had cheated on her husband with an ex.
