Joe Gorga is sharing his side of the story about what happened Jennifer Aydin and him this year BravoCon!
If you need a refresher, The Real Housewives of New Jersey a co-star got into a verbal altercation in the lobby of a hotel near the hotel Javits Center at the conference last month. According to a TikTok video from Jennifer’s social media assistant Erica Madelynthe 45-year-old TV personality “decided to go to the BravoCon after-party” after the convention, while her husband Bill Aydin sat behind Gansevoort Meatpacking Hotelwhere they and other stars stayed at the time.
At the party, Erica said Jennifer grabbed “a cup of water with ice.” However, they decided to leave the event early and returned to their hotel. That’s when Jen saw Joe Melissa Gorga in the lobby and tried to walk away from them. Erica continued:
“It was when we walked into the hotel lobby that everything came crashing down. As we walked in, Jennifer Aydin obviously noticed that Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga, and their team were in the lobby. She looked, looked away [and] we went straight to the elevator. There was no communication from Jens.”

But Melissa clearly wasn’t going to let her slip away that easily. She saw Jennifer in the lobby and called her “a loser, a fucking loser, a wannabe,” according to the aide. Aydin did not stand for it and clapped back:
“Shut the hell up.”
Joe then got in the middle of the situation and yelled at Jennifer:
“Shut up you bloody dirty bitches!”
Wow!! Erica said Jennifer felt “threatened enough” by Joe’s words to throw her drink at him. The Real Housewives Crew never fails to provide drama wherever they go, ha! You can watch the TikTok video (below):

Now, weeks after the situation, Joe is calling out Jennifer Aydin for LYING about details of the infamous situation! During the performance of Chickens in the office Friday’s podcast claimed that everything everyone heard from Erica wasn’t entirely the truth, saying:
“Everything you heard is a lie. Whatever you heard Jennifer’s assistant say, it was all lies.”
While Erica pushed in her video that Joe and Melissa started the drama, Joe insisted that Jennifer started it:
“The story is out there that she threw a drink at me and I was saying these rude things to her – no. First, I was 50 feet away with my wife … Jennifer likes a lot of digging and she’s involved in my family business.”
He then admitted that Melissa “said something” to their co-star that may have angered her at the time, but he only expected them to fight, noting that Jennifer is “not like that.” He continued:
“If you watched her on the TV show over the years, she drinks a lot, she’s violent, she throws things, she breaks glasses, she wants to stab you, she throws knives. I mean, this is who she is, she’s crazy. Picture her in real life. It’s a haircut!”
The owner of the construction company also admitted to yelling at Jennifer. However, Joe said he only did it because she was allegedly “crazy”. He then clarified that the drink was “never thrown” at him but instead at his assistant:
“She was out of control to the point of embarrassment. Screaming at the top of his lungs like a madman.”
In October, Melissa opened up about her situation For show podcast and said it started when Jennifer looked at her “snarky stary in [her] eyes” as she headed toward the elevators. She backed up the assistant’s story that Joe called Jennifer a “dirty bitch,” but claimed he said it to “other people” and not Bravolebrity. Hmmm…
Jennifer has yet to comment on the situation, so we’ll see if she’ll clap back at Joe’s claims! Feedback, Perezcious readers? Sound OFF in the comments below!
