Melissa Gorga Is Reopening Her Envy Boutique This Weekend After Temporary Closing Store And Cutting Ties With Ex-Business Partner Jackie Beard Robinson!

Melissa Gorga is reopening her Montclair boutique Envy, less than a month after temporary closing the store after the she cut ties with her former business partner, Jackie Beard Robinson. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star posted on Instagram that Envy, at 609 Bloomfield Avenue will reopen on Saturday.

"So excited!!! @envybymg will open its doors on Saturday! I will be there from 12-3 to meet you all❤❤ So happy that Envy is all mine!😍😍 Thank you so much for believing in me & I can't wait to see you Saturday," she wrote.



A spokeswoman for Gorga told NJ.com that her former partner Jackie Beard Robinson is no longer on the lease, and that the partnership has been dissolved without litigation.

The boutique's website, which had been down since the split in early January, is back up, with the same body-con styles that Gorga favors and that have been staples of Envy.

Gorga and Robinson opened Envy in late 2015, but ealier this month ended their partnership over creative differences.

Gorga was blindsided when Robinson emptied the store without telling her. Robinson teamed up with Kim DePaola later sold off the merchandise at DePaola's Posche boutique, and there had been murmurings that Gorga would not have the capital to reopen.

In what may or may not be a coincidence, DePaola, who rarely resists an opportunity to make a dig at Gorga on social media, posted a notice on Instagram -- around the same time as Gorga's reopening post -- about the apparently ongoing "Envy Liquidation Sale" at Posche, with prices starting at $10.
