Before we get into the details, we should make it clear that Natalie Guercio is (mostly) OK. The Mob Wives star sent fans of the VH1 reality show into a tailspin this week, when word got out that the Season 5 newbie was involved in a violent nightclub altercation — one that resulted in her allegedly being hit by a bouncer! But it appears that things have since smoothed out.

According to the reality starlet’s camp, Natalie was at Delilah's Gentleman's Club in Philly on March 27 when she found herself at odds with one of the club’s security guards. After a verbal spat, sources say the bouncer dragged the Mob Wife out of the bar and literally punched her square in the face! Anyone else getting flashbacks to poor Snooki on Jersey Shore?

The origin of the altercation is still unknown, though TMZ insiders say Natalie was calling the doorman “every name in the book.” Even if that’s true, since when is it OK to hit a woman — let alone anyone?!

After all of that, however, Natalie has supposedly decided to not press charges against the nightclub employee. She sustained bruises to her face, which prompted a trip to the hospital, but is said to not be seriously harmed.

Feel better soon, Nat!
