Melissa Gorga will likely be mired in more controversy during season five of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," following recent threats made by her ex-boyfriend, who is claiming that the reality TV star has a shady past.
A name identified as Bryan "Bulldog" recently blasted Gorga, 36, as being "fake" and alluded to having an "atomic bomb" that is expected to rock the show, according RadarOnline.com. In a series of tweets he suggested that he may be joining the season five cast which has subsequently infuriated Gorga and her sisters.
"Time and a place for everything just know the phone call was an atomic bomb and not for me tick tick tick lol," Bryan tweeted.
The New Jersey native, who blasted Gorga as being "desperate to keep her fake image & fake fame," reportedly began dating the mother of three before she married her husband Joe.
"I remember the Friday nite u said 2 me, stop seeing other girls or I will marry that millionaire...Keep talking… I will keep exposing ya 3 hamsters," he wrote in a series of tweets reportedly aimed at Gorga and her sisters.

The revelation is just the latest in a series of controversies surrounding Gorga, who joined the Bravo TV reality show in season three.
In October, Gorga's criminal history was exposed more than a decade after she was allegedly arrested for shoplifting. Fans of the hit Bravo reality show were even more stunned when Radar revealed at the time that there was still a warrant out for her arrest.
Prior to the shoplifting saga Gorga's ongoing feud with Giudice, 40, reached new heights in seasons three and four when various sources claimed that Gorga once worked as an exotic dancer at a strip club. Gorga vehemently denied the stripper claims and even blamed Giudice, a veteran housewife, for allegedly setting her up on the show.
During the season four finale episode, Gorga accused Giudice of plotting with outsiders to embarrass her at a fashion show. Giudice was accused of asking Angelo Vrohidis - a former manager of a gentleman's club - to expose Gorga's past, although Giudice has since denied that claim.
The controversy has not stopped there; in June, it was revealed that the Gorgas put both their family home, located in Montville Township, N.J., and their Toms River vacation home up for sale. Radar reported that they did so to ease mounting debts.
"Melissa and Joe are in way over their heads. Joe owes a lot of people money. They have the house on the market because they can't pay the mortgage now that the interest rate on it has exploded," a source close to the couple reportedly said.
"They are portraying a life they that they really didn't live prior to the show. Melissa likes to drop name brands now and has become very arrogant. Joe loves the fact that Joe Giudice has financial issues, yet he's in the same boat!" the insider added.
