Melissa Gorga has emphatically denied cheating on her husband, Joe Gorga, with her ex-boyfriend Brian “Bulldog” Bowen — despite his allegations to the contrary — but now that Brian has inserted himself into the Real Housewives of New Jersey drama, some unflattering details about his past have begun to emerge.

According to Life & Style, Brian was convicted of aggravated assault back in 2005, and was ordered to pay the victim “more than $20,000 in restitution.” Yikes sounds like Bulldog has a temper.

Even so, one of Brian’s associates supports his claims that he was intimate with Melissa after she was married to Joe, recalling an incident where Melissa left a sushi dinner early to “go hook up with Bulldog.”

Does this new information about his criminal past make him less credible, or do you still believe his story of Melissa’s infidelity? Vote below!
