Melissa Gorga and her husband Joe recently sold their mega-mansion in New Jersey and moved into a new home while their next home is being built. However, the size of their temporary home is a far cry from what the Real Housewives of New Jersey couple has become accustomed to.

According to a March 6 report by Celebuzz, Melissa and Joe are now living in a four bedroom, two bathroom home with just 3,700 square feet -- which is not much of anything compared to their former 13,500+ square foot home.

Months ago, Melissa and Joe sold their former home for $3.6 million and began to embark on a new project, dream home #2. Unfortunately, the home is going to take several months -- if not years to build. So, they are having to live in the $4,800 a month Franklin Lakes starter home in the meantime.

As for the progress on their dream home, the blueprints have been designed, but now comes the hard part -- the actual building. Hopefully, things will go smoothly for the Gorgas and they will be able to move into their new home quickly.

Currently, Melissa and Joe are busy filming the sixth season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey which will premiere later this year on Bravo.
