It was no table-flipping, prostitution-whore-calling public melee, but Amber Marchese and Nicole Napolitano left their own mark on Bravo last night.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars got into a heated argument at a first-responders-themed costume party, and it quickly got very uncomfortable.
Good thing most public servants don't behave like this ...
The impetus for the reality stars getting physical?
Nicole Napolitano confronted Amber Marchese after Melissa Gorga said that Amber had called her a home-wrecker (Marchese says she told Melissa this in confidence).
The gossip didn't sit well with Nicole. At all.
Dressed in a sexy cop costume, Amber approached Nicole to say hello, only to be rebuffed. She asked what the deal was, and one thing led to another.
Before you knew it, Nicole had clenched a fist full of her Garden State adversary's hair; Amber Marchese attacked back verbally as well as physically.
Eventually, the ladies (term used loosely) were separated, only to segue into another feud involving Amber's husband Jim and the other guys.
Having skipped their guys' night out because Joe Giudice was going, attorney Jim got into it with the fellas accusing him of snubbing the group.
And so it goes. If you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey, you know you can count on explosive, sometimes violent drama. Some things never change.
For once it isn't the Gorgas and Giudices brawling, though. Weird. Maybe their looming prison term has cooled that tension? Or it's just a matter of time ...
