Joe Giudice Demands That Joe Gorga Apologize to His Sister; Joe Gorga’s Black Spray-on-Hair Gets Spread on Everyone After Juicy Joe Knocks Him Clean Out of His Keds
“Melissa, could you talk to Andy about getting Jan on the show? Maybe you can call him Sunday night after the midget tossing episode. A lot of people seem to like her. I wouldn’t be surprised if she becomes a friend of the Housewives. Be a doll and hooker up. Oops…meant hook her up.” – NYGirlie, Bravo Blogs
There is nothing original about Joe Gorga:
- Caroline Manzo called Danielle Staub “garbage” in season 2; Joe Gorga called Teresa Giudice “garbage” in season 3.
- Jacqueline Laurita called Teresa “scum” in season 4; Joe Gorga called Teresa “scum” in season 5.
In season 5 episode 7, Juicy demands that Joe Gorga apologize to his sister for calling her scum (among other things he’s done to her over the past few years), so Joe Gorga charges Juicy, and Juicy Joe proceeds to kick baby Joey’s ass, knocking him clean out of his keds. Afterward, baby Joey cried himself to sleep.
The following is a transcript of the scene from episode 7, when “the bad blood between the Gorgas and the Giudices come to a boil as Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga throw punches” at the retreat.
The group is standing together in the conference room.
Melissa: You are poison! That’s right!
Teresa: Who talks like that?!
Melissa: Melissa! Melissa Gorga! Gor-ga!!
Melissa walks off to the far wall by the windows.
Joey to the counselors: I appreciate everything you’ve done. At this point, it’s a waste of time.
Kathy and Rich are present and looking on.
Teresa: You are disappointing our family!
Joey: I am?!
Joey: Shame on you!
Teresa: Stick with your sister!
Joey: Shame on you!
Teresa: Blood is thicker than water!
Melissa chimes in from the background: Stick with the people who hurt us the most! Okay!
Joey: Shame on you!
Teresa: It’s not shame on me!
Teresa TH: Certain things that he’s saying to me is not coming from him. It’s Melissa chirping in his ear but I’m not going to take his sh*t anymore. He’s being a bitch!
Teresa: You’re believing strangers over your own blood!
Joey: Aw, c’mon! Teresa. . .
Teresa: That’s what you don’t understand. . .
Joey: Teresa. . .
Teresa: Get balls! Be a man! Stick with your blood!!
Melissa is standing in the background, watching.
Joey, sneering: I’m not sticking with scum like you!!
Teresa is taken aback and looks shocked.
Kathy: Joe! That wasn’t right.
Kathy: That wasn’t right!
Joey: I don’t care! She is scum and I’m gonna call you scum!
Teresa: You know what? I’m outta here!
Teresa walks away to go out on the terrace.
Joey: That’s right! Leave!
Rosie and Joe are out on the terrace.
Joe: I’m gonna tell you one thing. One day it’s gonna happen. He’s gonna make me fu*king mad and I’m gonna fu*king flip and you know it!
Teresa comes out on the terrace.
Teresa: Joe!! He just called me scum! I wanna leave!!
Melissa continues to look out the window
Rosie: Wait!! Wait. . .wait. . .wait. . .wait. . .
Teresa and Joe talk to one and other.
Joe starts towards the door into the conference room.
Joe: I’m gonna tell him to apologize!
In the conference room Joey is speaking to the counselors as Melissa still stays by the windows.
Joey: She’s become my enemy and that’s not right! That’s it!!!
Counselor: Let me ask you this . . .
Rich is near the dear and sees Joe Giudice approaching to come inside.
Rich to Joey: Whoa! Whoa! Back up. Back up. Back up.
Teresa yells for Rosie as she tries to stop Joe.
Joe goes storming inside to the conference room.
Rosie: Argh!! See, this is bad!
Joe: Hey! Joe!
Joe (pointing his finger and shouting): Apologize to your …
Joey charges at Joe and a fight ensues. Joe throws Joey to the ground and begins to punch him. There are screams of “No! No! No!” heard.
Melissa, hysterical and screaming: Stop it! Teresa!! Help your brother!
Melissa is slapping, grabbing, pinching, poking and clawing at Joe, and hysterically shouting, “No!!!”, “Please, Joe!!!”, “No!!!
Joey TH: At that moment, I had 10 years of anger and hatred coming out.
Joe is being restrained by the whole crew. They (Richie, Kathy and Melissa) are all slapping, grabbing, clawing, pinching, biting, poking him and gouging his eyes while Rosie is trying to pull Joey away.
Rosie pulls Joey away from his grip on Joe’s private parts, and she is knocked to the floor. Joey scurries to the other side of the room, away from Joe.
Joe to Joey: Hey, you wanna suck it? Get over here! The guy’s bitin’ my nuts!
Rich to Joe: Just go, bro.
Joe to Joey: The next time it will be one shot – me hitting you and you going down!
Joey yelling at Joe from a safe distance across the room, letting Rosie lie on the floor without offering to help her up.
Joey: You made me be a bum like you!
Melissa TH: This is the absolute worse that it can get. We’ve hit rock bottom.
Melissa and Joe leave the conference room to go to their room, with Joe having taken off his shirt (because it’s covered in his black hair paint). Melissa slams the door.
Melissa Voice Over: I’m done!
The extended clip in the video above (and at the link below) shows the brawl after Juicy throws Gorga into the wall. Melissa begs Teresa to help her brother. Melissa got her licks in, pulling on Juicy’s hair, gouging his eyes, pinching his nose, and hitting him while Teresa ran outside to get help from security. Juicy says that Gorga is “biting my nuts” (you can see Gorga grabbing his balls in the photo above).
“Just rewatched the fight scene and you and lil Joey are pathetic. First he calls his sister scum and then bum rushes Joe when he demands an apology to Tre. Everyone had to jump in and save your muscle bound idiot husband from getting his butt kicked. And the whole time he has his mouth clenched on Joe’s crotch! And after all you have done to encourage a bad relationship between them you call for Tre to help your little man. This just proves what an insecure overindulged mannabe manchild he really is, no wonder he clings to your skirts, he is nothing without a woman to stroke is ego. He is NO Tarzan!” – Hulali, July 13, 2013, Melissa’s Bravo Blog
