There have been table flips, screaming matches, and several near-physical altercations on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but some cast members take things to a whole new level in Season 5.

According to Celebuzz, Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga got into a fight last week during a Bravo-filmed cast trip to Lake George, New York — and things got messy really fast. “Joe Gorga charged at Joe Giudice, and Joe Giudice put him in a chokehold,” a source revealed.  

Joe Giudice punched Joe Gorga in the side, twice. Teresa was there, but she left the room mid-fight,” the source continued. Speaking of Mrs. Giudice, the altercation apparently started after Joe and Melissa Gorga were yelling at her and she called Juicy Joe for backup.

Yet even though the fight was intense, the Giudices and Gorgas were able to move on quickly after all the punches were thrown. However, the same cannot be said for some of their RHoNJ cast members, who were also in Lake George.

The Celebuzz source notes that Caroline Manzo left Lake George after a day, while her sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita opted not to go at all. Kathy Wakile and her husband, Rich, were the only other castmates who stayed for the duration of the trip.

While we aren’t surprised that the Joes came to blows, it’s a stark contrast from smiling pictures of them together earlier this week.

Are you surprised that things got physical, or is it just par for the course with this bunch? Vote below!
