"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Melissa Gorga condemned her husband Joe for violently smashing a glass in the midst of a heated discussion during Sunday night's episode.
The mother-of-three, 34, who has been married to the property developer for nine years, blasted the father of her children as an "idiot" after he lost control of his temper during a candid discussion with his sister, Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe.
The group went on a family retreat in an attempt to resolve ongoing issues stemming from rumors surrounding Melissa and Joe's marriage. The Gorgas and Giudices found themselves at odds over a woman identified as Penny Drossos, who alleged Melissa cheated on Joe, who is also Teresa's younger brother.
"Hey Joe forget about that idiot," Joe [Giudice] told Joe [Gorga] in response to his request for Teresa to confront Drossos about the affair rumors.
"WTF?! If it was happening to you...Id rather you straighten her out," Joe [Gorga] insisted to which others pressed for him to simply let it go.
"Do you want any problems? You don't need it!...Do you think I'm gonna give her the attention?" Teresa asked after denying allegations that she had anything to do with Drossos' explosive claims.
"Just end it! That's what I wanna see!" Joe [Gorga] screamed before abruptly rising to his feet and violently smashing his glass.
Teresa, along with her co-stars Jacqueline, Kathy and Caroline, were left visibly shaken as a humiliated Melissa escorted her husband out of the room due to his antics.
"You're so embarrassing! Get in the room you idiot! What the f--- is wrong with you you idiot? You lose control like a psycho," Melissa was heard telling her husband.
The episode aired months after a New Jersey judge ruled that there was probable cause to charge Jacqueline and her husband Christopher along with Joe [Gorga] with assault and making terroristic threats against a man named, John Karagiorgis, in relation to a fight stemming from a confrontation about the rumors surrounding Melissa.
Karagiorgis alleges that on the night of March 30, Jacqueline, Chris and Gorga confronted and attacked him at the Moxi Hair Salon while filming season five of the hit Bravo reality TV show, according to RumorFix.com.
"Joe Gorga approached a guy named Jonathan Karagiorgis and confronted him about all the things he's said about Melissa [Gorga] on Twitter, and Jonathan admitted he was writing about her," an insider allegedly told Fox News' Tom Murro.
The case is scheduled to go before a grand jury.
