Real Housewives Of NJ Brawl - My9 New Jersey

Real Housewives Of NJ Brawl

Posted: Updated:
Ridgewood, New Jersey (My9News) -

In March a fight broke out in Ridgewood during a taping of Bravo’s series, The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Stars Jacqueline and Chris Laurita and Joe Gorga were all involved in the fight and all faced assault charges.

The criminal charges were dropped, but now Johnny 'The Greek' Karagiorgis and his wife Penny filed a civil suit against the reality stars for allegedly severely assaulting them at a party for one of the other cast members. They also believe the network encouraged the fight to take place where Johnny ended up getting injured.

Celebrity gossip expert, Chaunce Hayden said that reality TV fights aren’t unusual, but he agreed that this one got a little too real. “This got serious. I saw the scene after the fight, I witnessed it. There was a lot of blood. It looked like somebody got seriously hurt. There was blood on the walls.” He said.

The lawsuit claims that the Real Housewives show encouraged the fight for ratings. Johnny the Greek and his wife are seeking unspecified damages for the suffering and harm that was caused to them.

Hayden said that even though this fight really did get bad, he expects that it will in fact help the show and both sides will see the benefits. “At the end of the day they’re gonna turn it into ratings gold and the people get the payout and go away. The show will get more popular than ever.” He said.

The questions however is, If the networks and shows are actually promoting and encouraging these kind of confrontations, how much liability do they have if something goes really wrong?

    Fair Lawn, New Jersey Mayor John Cosgrove says that the town’s water tower is in desperate need of repairs, but it seems that a bird’s nest is the reason why construction hasn’t began yet. “It’s a $1.5 million project. We’re going to paint the tower, it hasn’t been painted in 18 years, so we were ready and thought we could get it done in the spring and be ready for summer and now we have to wait between four and six weeks because we have to wait until the hatchlings fly,” he explained.
