Following the disgraceful Real Housewives of New Jersey brawl that took place during filming for season five, local business owners are complaining that RHONJ not only destroyed their facilities but may be harming their reputation!
"Yes, a fight broke out, but we're not happy about it," Jenntold the Ridgewood Patch, adding that other local business owners were also unhappy about the latest embarrassment to have occurred while filming for the show. Following incidents in previous years the show has been banned from other local establishments.
All the nonsense allegedly started when Johnny and his wife Penny Drossos-Karagiorgis (possibly conspiring with Teresa Giudice and Kim according Melissa to some sources) threatened to bring Melissa Gorga's ex-boyfriend to the salon. Then Johnny allegedly made comments about Jacqueline's son Nicholas. In a new interview Johnny denies all involvement – and he blames producers for setting him up!
“I was ambushed and attacked,” Johnnytold NorthJersey.com. As a result of the brawl Johnny suffered a broken nose, bruises, lumps and head trauma. He also says he was hit in the head and still has “a mark on my forehead from a stiletto heel.” Our source,Tom Murro, tells us Jaquelineyanked off her shoes during the brawl and was slapping Johnny in the head (with her hand)!
Johnny reportedly made fun of Jacqueline's autistic son Nicholas (a charge he vehemently denies on twitter) which led to the incident. Witnesses tell the NJ Patch that the fight was very nasty.
"It was a huge brawl. Three of Kim D's clothes racks were destroyed and three of our custom sinks were broken," salon owner Jennifer Dunn confirms. "There was blood on the walls." Jennifer also reveals that one of the men threw a sink during the incident. Undaunted Bravo cameras continued rolling the entire time!
Since none of the RHONJ husbands have jobs they have a lot of time on their hands to go around getting in fist fights and camerawhoring. Apparently over the weekend there was an event to celebrate the opening of Kim D's newest boutique, Posche 2. It's a boutique downstairs and a hair salon upstairs.
Attending the event were some friends of Kim's who are known to cause much, much drama and be anything but fans of Melissa Gorga. RHONJ twitter users are very familiar with them…
If there's one lesson reality stars never seem to learn, it's "don't throw stones from your glass house", especially when said house could go into foreclosure at any moment. Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita may be regretting all the shade she threw at Teresa Giudice about not paying her bills because it looks like Jacqs is facing more financial hot water herself.
First, there is the pesky business bankruptcy that is ongoing, which Jacqs reportedly has/had to testify for. Then there was the revelation this week that she owes the state of New Jersey more than $300,000 in back taxes. It seems that 2013 is continuing to be a rough year for Jacs, as her home is now in pre-foreclosure, reportedly.
According to Zillow (screen shots below), Jacqueline is in pre-foreclosure on her own Franklin Lakes McMansion. The Lauritas were allegedly served papers by their bank for being in default on their $1.8 million home loan.
Just like Joe adamantly defended Melissa against stripper-gate, he is coming to her defense in the rumors that she had an affair.
“I don’t even know this guy,” Joeinsists to Life & Style. “People tried to bring this up two years ago; they tried to put this bulls–t out there. All I have to say is, ‘Ha, ha, ha.’”
“There’s a lot of lies and a lot of accusations…but I love my wife,” Joe shares. "The poor girl keeps getting all this abuse for no reason. They find a good mom with a good image, and it's like, ‘How can we take her down?’”
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
