Jacqueline & Chris Laurita, Joe Gorga Charged With Assault; Initial Hearing Set For April 18!

April 5, 2013 |By Continue Reading

Jacqueline and Chris Laurita, along with Joe Gorga, of Real Housewives of New Jersey, have been charged with assault and terroristic threat following a municipal ruling late Thursday evening! The photo above is of Chris and Jacqueline at the event, before the heels came off and the blood was spilled!

Johnny Karagiorgis filed a complaint following the nasty brawl that took place at Kim D’s Posche boutique, leaving Moxie Salon a complete wreck with blood on the walls and sinks ripped out! NorthJersey.com reveals that a judge found enough probable cause and the RHONJ cast members have been charged!

The Lauritas filed counterclaims against Johnny, but they will not be decided on until next week. For now, a hearing will take place on April 18 with the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office!

Can any of our knowledgeable readers shed insight into what may happen to the Lauritas and Joe Gorga if they are found guilty of this? Do you think the fight will not make it to TV now that it has become a legal issue?

Im interested to see how this plays out; will the Lauritas throw little Joey under the bus to save their own asses? Maybe- ” It was all his fault, he told us JTG said those things and we snapped”. Do you think Stumpy will try throwing them under?

Joe Guidice said that Chris was shady. I am telling you, it is a shame that he is not on the show anymore. He always said the truth, and he didn’t play along with Bravo and their scripts. In return, they gave him the bad edits and tried to make him look like a horrible person. But, he didn’t give a crap. gotta love Juicy.

That is why I liked him! I do not like some personal things between he and Teresa, but as a whole and on the show, that is what I did like! “Bunch of momo’s”..

Never mind assault from what I understand getting hit with the terrorist charge can be very serious. I think they are in a world of trouble. Lots of lawyer fees too. I actually feel sorry for them, and I am not a fan of these few. Is this worth it. They all talked about Joe Guidice, remember Chris saying how stupid Joe was with the court issue. Who is stupid now. They all should hold their tongues.

I am beginning to think this show is lost. Last season all we had every episode was hate. And now this season we have physical violence. Come on Bravo! We don’t want to watch this garbage!

Sorry off topic. Meho is a pos. She talked crap about Teresa’s girls at the reunion and now she has been posting pictures of them with Antonia. Grrrrr, I can’t help but think Meho is trying to have Antonia follow Teresa’s girl’s coat tails the same way Meho and Slowjoe are holding onto Teresa’s coat tails. After all of the crap Meho has said about Teresa’s girls, etc., I’m sure Teresa has nothing but love in her heart for Meho’s kids. Grrrrr, the hypocricy…

I dont think its that- I think its more so that she gets caught in many many lies, contradicts herself obviously, and wants even more attention. Now she is trying to “change” her public perception by acting as though she remotely cares for family. BUT, I do see your point 🙂

as much as I like watching the drama on these housewives shows. the new jersey drama goes too far. I don’t even think this is funny anymore. this is getting very serious. I really hope this will be a wake up call for all of the new jersey casts and they’ll let go of their hatred for each other and just grow the hell up already.

I agree- its definitely not funny @rukidding. Its disgusting and disturbing. What makes it worse is that Bravo got used to it, saw the ratings, and promotes it I guess. They definitely need a wake up call because I do not even want to know how it can get any worse. Very shameful.

From what I read from the article, the cross-complaints to be heard on the 18th are the charges that the lauritas and Joe Gorga have made against Johnny K. Joe and the Laurita’s could be charged at any time now. Probably what will happen is that their attorney will schedule a time for them to turn themselves in, they’ll get booked and be immediately released on bond. The hearing on the 18th is to determine if JTG should be charged as well.

I talked to my brother who is a da and he said if JTG did not throw a punch and he was held down and was being attacked its considered a criminal assault. The heels can be viewed as a deadly weapon especially if they are the source of the injuries to the head. Jax may get the most charges because she used her heels as a weapon. The prosecutors have to file the charges and lead the investigation. He also said if bravo interfered with the police call criminal charges ca b file against them as well. It doesn’t… Read more »

Thats what does it for me Paula- Gorga has has heard all of this, most likely longer then 2 years! Why wait until a camera is rolling at an event? He has spoke to Penny and her husband at least twice now regarding his marriage and his wife. And still, there is NO excuse for beating someone up, (well there is one excuse) but it would not be for that. Why would you risk, as a father, a criminal record because of rumors? After years of hearing them? He is an idiot!

@Paula

I hope the info about the Justice dept investigating the violence surrounding RHONJ is incorrect. The Justice dept needs to focus on actual crimes. If these idiots want to beat each other up for Tv time, let ’em. Our govt is too stretched for cash to waste resources investigating a group of people who sign up for this.

Was Bryan(?) even at the event?

After all the twitter rantings and warnings, it seems like it (Melissa’s ex emerging) has become such a non factor.

I think the most pathetic part about it is that the whole thing really blew up from the on line shenanigans of the Greek and the Marco sisters.

I wonder if there is any culpability for whomever was holding JTG down while the beating occurred. Seems to me- security should be holding down those who are being aggressive- not those that are being attacked.

If Joe goes to jail he better watch out because some guy is going to “release some poison into him’. Pretty boys like him don’t stand a chance.

If watching the 4 trollops Melissa, Jacqueline, Kathy and Caroline have every last thing they bashed Teresa for happen to them and worse does not convince you Karma is real then nothing will. These women were fully prepared and happy to watch T&Joes house forclose and the lil girls packing their toys and moving to a shelter but it didn’t happen as they planned. Teresa you have your revenge darling and they did it all on their own. You never even had to chip a well manicured nail. Especially Melissa Gorga with her fake everything bringing those innocent lil girls… Read more »

I can remember jac’s season 4 talking head when she giggled psychotically saying joe guidice thought he was above the law. She looked bloated so it may have been the booze talking. I also have not forgotten Melissa and Joe’s many attempts to paint Joe Guidice as being guilty. Pay back’s a bitch ladies

Most likely what will happen is the three will take a plea and the aggravated assault will be reduced to simple assault. The terroristic threats will most likely be dismissed.

If the judge find a legit counter claim from the Laurita’s and Gorga, this might all just disappear.

Bravo will probably decline to show the footage to protect them from any claim that the contributed to the brawl for rating, ie monetary gain.

I need to vent here,guys… I was really annoyed with some articles saying that T was to blame for this brawl. Keep in mind,this is coming form a person who doesn’t like and sometimes can’t even stand T. Could T be spreading rumors about M? Yes,sure,those 2 hate each other (my opinion). I don’t believe all those fake “make ups” for the camera. But is T to blame for the fight? Absolutely NO! Joe had a choice to walk away and confront T later. He chose to start a fight. Same goes to Chris and Jac. I don’t condone making… Read more »

These people are thugs, and should pay for their crimes. Who does this? Jacqueline standing on a chair and hitting a man in the head with the heel of her shoe–she has given Bravo ample reason to fire her (first, not showing up for a reunion; then tweeting details of an upcoming season, and now this! Bravo needs to fire this woman, immediately. Bravo comes across as condoning the violence and the bullying, and enough is enough. Sponsors should be putting the pressure on to clean up their act.

I’m surprised at Jacqueline and Chris, given what happened when Ashley simply pulled Danielle’s hair a few years ago! So trashy and foolish of them to do this. A bunch of 40 year olds getting into brawls? Only Jersey. I’m so glad the other casts don’t get this low…although Adriana in Miami is classless too.
