The show is called The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but during Season 6 the real husbands are bringing just as much drama as their wives.

On yesterday's episode, Amber Marchese's husband, Jim, made waves when he refused to go to a guys' night out because he doesn't want to interact with Joe Giudice. Jim's explanation is that he has a mortgage company and sometimes works with the Department of Justice on fraud cases. Joe is under indictment for fraud, and according to Jim that all adds up to a conflict of interest. Needless to say, no one was very pleased about Jim's attitude.


This is reality TV, so of course Jim couldn't avoid running into Joe forever. In this sneak peek of next Sunday's episode, these hubbys come face to face for the first time and yep, it's pretty awkward.

While Joe and Jim don't interact all that much, Joe isn't afraid to get real in his talking head segment, admitting his opinion of Joe is "what I've read in the newspaper." He added, "I just try to stay away from people I believe have a tendency to get into trouble."

Catch the next episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 on Sunday, August 3, at 8 p.m. ET.
