Real Housewives of New Jersey: Cast Have Bloody Brawl at Boutique! [Details]

A bloody brawl broke out during filming of season 5 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The fight took place on March 30 at the opening of Kim DePaola’s Posche 2 boutique in Ridgewood, N.J. It all began when Melissa Gorga’s husband, Joe, confronted a man named Johnny Karagiorgis who has been spreading rumors about his wife. Karagiorgis claimed Teresa was giving him the information.
Jacqueline Laurita’s husband, Chris, got involved to confront Karagiorgis about making fun of his autistic son, and things turned violent.
“Jonathan [Karagiorgis] was not backing down, and that’s when they all started to exchange blows!” a source told Radar Online. “Jacqueline kicked off her shoes and bitch smacked Jonathan on the back of his head! This is where the Manzo boys along and Lauren Manzo jumped in out of nowhere to break up the fight!”
Ridgewood-Glen Rock Patch reports that by the time the brawl was broken up by security, clothes were trampled, sinks were destroyed and blood stained the walls of 74 East Ridgewood Avenue. Karagiorgis said Jacqueline Laurita struck him with the point of her stiletto heel.
Karagiorgis denies he made any comments regarding Lauritas’ son and claims he was “set up” by producers of Bravo. Karagiorgis filed a complaint Saturday night. He claims his nose was broken.A judge ruled Thursday night that there is enough probable cause to have complaints of assault and terroristic threats issued against Jacqueline, Chris and Joe.
The three cast members filed counterclaims against Karagiorgis on Thursday, alleging he made terroristic threats and committed assault. The trio have a first court appearance scheduled on April 18 in Ridgewood Municipal Court.
