3 “Real Housewives of New Jersey” Cast Members Accused in Boutique Beatdown

Not that this will surprise anyone, but three cast members of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” are set to be charged with assault and “making terroristic threats” after an incident in the brand-new Posche 2 boutique in Ridgewood last weekend. The alleged victim, John “Johnny the Greek” Karagiorgis has said some not very nice things about Melissa Gorga, whose husband Joe was one of the alleged assailants. Also accused: Jacqueline and Christopher Laurita.

Here’s an account of the March 30th altercation, from the entertainment blog WetPaint. See if you can follow along.

Our source tells us that Joe Gorga and Chris Laurita went after Johnny. Joe was apparently angry because he was under the impression that Johnny was setting Melissa up by bringing her ex-boyfriend, Bryan Bulldog Bowen, into the mix, and Bulldog’s numerous tweets to both Penny and Johnny would suggest that they all know each other. As we told you several weeks ago, Bulldog has been claiming that Mel slept with him after she married Joe, so it’s easy to understand why Joe would dislike him.

Or maybe the whole thing started because:

Johnny allegedly said something insulting about the Laurita’s 3-year-old autistic son, Nicholas.

Either way, by the end of the night, the place “was completely trashed (we’re talking sinks ripped from the wall and broken glass everywhere) and Johnny was bleeding and badly bruised.” [AP]
