Apparently cat fights between the castmembers of The Real Housewives of New Jersey isn’t enough drama from BRAVO anymore!
Back in February, the ladies of Franklin Lakes got into an old fashioned bar fight while filming in the Dominican Republic and are now about to pay the price for their antics. Â On Monday, two lawsuits were filed against BRAVO, the show’s production companyÂ and theÂ RHONJ cast. Â The lawsuits state that the network ‘intentionally encourages excessive drinking and thus increases the likelihood of violence.’
Is this news to anyone?
According to US Weekly, the cast of the RHONJ was involved in an altercation at the Hard Rock’s Moon Lounge after housewife,Â Teresa Giudice, accidentally sprayed champagne on other patrons.Â Â A witness reported that,
One guy started yelling at her… Then Joe and the Manzo boys told him to back off. That’s when they all started wailing on each other.
The lawsuits were filed by a Chicago-area police officer who allegesÂ that he and his cousin were “savagely” beaten by the RHONJ cast and were forced to sign a settlement agreement. Â And to add an even deeper level of intrigue, they plantiffs also state that they were told if they did not sign the agreements neither they, nor their families would not be allowed to leave the D.R.
This show just gets more mobster-fabulous all the time.
