TV Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey
Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Jacqueline Laurita, her husband Christopher and Joe Gorga are facing criminal charges after a bloody, sink-throwing brawl reportedly broke out at a grand opening party for Kim DePaola's new clothing store in Ridgewood, N.J., on Saturday.
The trio allegedly attacked a guest after he made fun of the Lauritas' son Nicholas, 3, who suffers from autism, the couple revealed last year. Bravo cameras were reportedly rolling throughout the fight.
According to the Bergen Record, Ridgewood Municipal Judge David Pfund determined there is probable cause to charge the Lauritas and Gorga with assault and terroristic threats after the alleged attack against John Karagiorgis of Paramus, N.J.
Given the particularly toxic ending to season 4 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the reunion show wasn't likely to be cordial.
And it's not.
Judging by this preview, it's going to be a loud and nasty sequence of epithets, curses, insults and degradations.
It wouldn't be a Posche fashion show without the drama, and in the season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, there's plenty of name-calling, finger-pointing and bleeping to go around.
After last week's episode, during which a man appeared claiming to have employed Melissa Gorga as a stripper, everyone is all riled up. Was Teresa Giudice involved in setting up her sister-in-law? Joe Gorga seems to think so.
But he's also steaming mad at Posche owner Kim D., who manages to insert herself in all the drama, too.
"You're the scum of the Earth," Joe tells Kim D. outside the show, while Caroline Manzo and Melissa look on.
Jacqueline Laurita had tried for years to have another baby, so when she finally welcomed son Nicholas three years ago, the proud mom celebrated his every achievement.
But then, at around 18 months old, Nicholas began regressing with his speech and motor skills, then refusing to answer to his name or notice people enter a room.
"We had no idea what was going on," the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who hid her son's medical issues from the reality cameras as she continued taping season 4 last year, tells PEOPLE exclusively.
After an agonizing wait to see multiple doctors, the Lauritas got a diagnosis: Nicholas is autistic.
Who's Joe Giudice talking to?
The husband of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has been caught on camera using some highly offensive language while speaking about his wife.
While the New Jersey cast, including the Manzos, the Lauritas, the Wakiles and the Gorgas, are all in Napa, Calif., to celebrate Caroline Manzo's 50th birthday, Joe excuses himself to take a phone call – for work, he says. (Watch a clip of the footage below.)
What he says on the phone at first – in English – to the person on the other end isn't necessarily incriminating. But once he sees his wife walking over to him, the name-calling begins.
Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita haven't exactly been close lately, but no one could have predicted that their issues run this deep.
Case in point: On last night's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, viewers were treated to a hefty Teresa vs. Jacqueline showdown which started innocently ... but ended disastrously.
When celebrity chef and designer Jaime Laurita wed his husband Rich Lane last summer at their home outside Chicago, his sister, Caroline Manzo, gave a poignant speech that brought tears to the grooms' eyes.
That speech, which you can watch below now, will air on Bravo's The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sunday (10 p.m. ET).
"I was thrilled," New Jersey's tough yet tender matriarch Manzo says of finding out her brother was going to tie the knot. "Everybody wants to feel accepted, loved, at peace, at home in their life choices. It was great ... for him and Rich to finally feel like their relationship is recognized."
Let the games – er, shows – begin!
Bravo's summer programing slate is heating up, and the network has recruited a fleet of its "Bravolebrities" – more than 30 in total – for a fun, fast-paced new promo, and PEOPLE.com has a first look. (The commercial will make its TV debut during Wednesday's Watch What Happens Live.)
The Olympics-themed clip finds various Housewives – NeNe Leakes, Kyle Richards and Ramona Singer – facing off for race ... in heels! And with drinks in hand.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey ended its third season with a moment of calm, as 'Teresa posed for a family portrait alongside her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa.
That was then, and this is now: On Sunday's season 4 premiere, Teresa is in hot water with her costars.
"I believe that she's living a rough life with her husband, she's unhappy and misery loves company," her brother Joe Gorga said.
Fans have already caught a glimpse of the drama that is set to unfold in season 4 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey – most of which is centered around Teresa Giudice.
Now, Giudice is speaking out to PEOPLE exclusively about what went down on – and off – camera.
"I am still saddened by what transpired," she says of shooting the season. "There are a lot of hurtful and shocking moments."
