Gorga Vs. Giudice: The Feuding Joes Come To Physical Blows
“Joe Gorga charged at Joe Giudice, and Joe Giudice put him in a chokehold,” a source said.
The second source added that Teresa’s burly husband used his fists first — and Bravo caught all the wrestling action on camera for the group’s hit show, The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
“Joe Gorga got behind Joe Giudice and had him in a bear-hug — but not the affectionate kind,” said the insider. “Joe Giudice punched Joe Gorga in the side, twice. Teresa was there, but she left the room mid-fight.”
season 4’s Strippergate, and a whole lot in between.
So what caused the family feud?
“Nothing specific — it’s everything. It’s them being them, all the back-and-forth,” said the second insider. “There wasn’t one thing in particular. It’s their history.”
“They were civil afterward,” said the source. “One minute they’re arguing, the next minute they’re nice and family again.”
But the family feuding hasn’t been taken quite as lightly by other RHONJ castmates: Caroline Manzo left Lake George after only one day, while Jacqueline Laurita decided not to go at all. Kathy Wakile and husband Rich, meanwhile, toughed it out.
A Bravo spokesperson had no comment.
