Today (April 2, 2013) is the sixth annual World Autism Awareness day, and no one can be more mindful of the day than Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita. Her son, Nicholas, was diagnosed with autism when he was 18 months old.The subject is a sensitive one for the family, so when it was rumored that John “Johnny the Greek” Karagiogis (friend of the H’wives Penny Drossos’s husband) insulted her son, the Lauritas were fuming. But John claims that he never said a bad word about Nicholas.  

@ReeReeOO @realilanaangel Don't believe it. I've never spoken negatively about any child. NEVER!!!” John tweeted to a fan on Apr 1.

Apparently, John alleged that the Lauritas lied over their son, Nicholas’ autism diagnosis. While John says he never said anything about their child, Jac and her husband, Chris Laurita, didn’t get the memo. On March 30, the couple attacked John during a “brawl” at Posche 2, Kim D.’s popular New Jersey boutique, for allegedly saying things about Nick.

According to Reality Tea, Jacqueline allegedly “kicked off her shoes and hopped up on a chair then bitchslapped Johnny on the back of his head with her left hand.”

Chris, along with Joe Gorga and Albie Manzo, continued the fight with John until it was finally  broken up (along with the sinks and glass at the venue) and a badly bruised and bloodied John was escorted outside.

Sheesh!  We guess that’ll teach John to keep his mouth shut!

Do you think Johnny the Greek made those allegations about Jac and Chris’s son? Tell us below!
