Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga is putting the "marital rape" controversy surrounding her new book, Love Italian Style, behind her.

At least that's what it seemed like earlier this week during a family outing to New York City.

Melissa and husband Joe Gorga were all smiles when they took their kids Antonia, 8, Gino, 6 and Joey, 3 to see The Art of the Brick exhibit at Discovery Times Square.
