Melissa Gorga isn't proving too popular as a snap of her in yoga pants circulates the digital space. The reality star and clothing designer is fresh from posting a shot promoting her Envy by Melissa Gorga line, and while plenty of thumbs-up came in, not everyone was digging the photo.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star posted for her 2.4 million Instagram followers last weekend, showing off both her luxurious home closet and her killer figure. Clearly, fans have thoughts.

Showing Off Her Merch

Scroll for the photo. It comes as Melissa expands her career, overall - in late 2021, the mom of three announced she's kicking off a podcast.

Posing by silk wallpapers and backed by neat shelving showing off her brand's clothing, the 43-year-old was photographed in tight dark yoga pants, plus a hot pink and knitted sweater. All poker-straight hair, Melissa sent out her plump pout via a glossy pink lip, with the gallery including photos from her entire range. More after the snap.

Melissa, who gained over 11,000 likes for her share, also caught a like from Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan. She took to her caption, writing: "Happy Saturday Lovers💕 Some of my favorite New Arrivals @envybymg"

Haters gonna hate, although here, some might say that the complaints were warranted. "Only size small and XS??? Come on now!!" one fan wrote. Another replied that Gorga's store is "basically just clothes she would wear." A third user said it was "so true" as they chimed in.

Fans Say It's Over-Priced

Others, meanwhile, threw shade at the price tags. "So over priced," one fan moaned, with another replying:

"And so many places come down here to the South for the large trade shows and buy up these clothes in Atlanta etc for just a fraction. If you really knew how cheap many of these pieces were you would laugh." Singer Carrie Underwood has also faced backlash over prices from her 2015-launched CALIA by Carrie brand. Melissa has not responded to the backlash. More below.

Launching Fitness Gear

2021 saw Melissa excitedly announce more merch from her brand as she capitalizes on the pandemic's home fitness trend. Posting in leggings in October of last year, the Bravo face told her followers:

"I listened to what you all wanted from me, and fitness seems to be the number one thing! So I created 80 different pieces of workout accessories!!!" She also stated:

"I’m super proud of it and will keep you updated on all of the places you will find it!!"
