RHONJ FIGHT!!! And it didn't involve the ladies!
It happened Saturday at the grand opening of fellow cast mate KIM DEPAOLA'S new clothing store in Ridgewood, New Jersey.
Sources say a guy named John Karagiorgis came into the store and made fun of the Lauritas' 3-year-old son Nicholas, who is autistic. A nasty brawl ensued.
A woman who owns a beauty salon that shares the space with DePaola's clothing store says, quote, "Three of Kim D's clothes racks were destroyed and three of our custom sinks were broken. There was blood on the walls."
There are also reports that Jacqueline took off one of her shoes and bashed the guy on the head with it. He claims he still has a mark on his forehead from the heel.
Even though the attackers were charged, a source says, quote, "Everyone felt as though Karagiorgis came in there confrontational, and instigated the fight."
The three "Real Housewives" stars filed a counter-report against him. There's no word yet if he'll be brought up on charges.
It should be noted that Bravo's cameras were rolling during all of this.
Bravo has canceled KATHY GRIFFIN'S late-night talk show, "Kathy", after two seasons. There's no official word from the network, but Kathy talked about it during a stand up show in Cincinnati on Friday.
By the way, Kathy may already be working on her next move. Last month, we heard that she filmed a pilot for some show with ANDERSON COOPER at the CNN studios, but there weren't any details on what that was all about.
Anderson's syndicated talk show is also on the way out. Back in October, he announced that it wouldn't be returning for a third season.
Jordan!!?? Will you be ok?!
JONATHAN KNIGHT abruptly walked out on a NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK concert in New York last Thursday.
Jonathan looked uncomfortable from the beginning of the show. He hung out by himself behind the group as they were performing, and at one point, he even checked his phone in the middle of a song.
About halfway through their hour-long set, New Kids launched into their new song "Survive You". Jonathan has a solo in it . . . but when it came time, he couldn't get the words out.
DONNIE WAHLBERG joked, quote, "Jon, these people paid thousands of dollars for these tickets. For one reason: They heard that you're singing on this record." And he put his arm around him.
Jonathan laughed, but then walked off the stage shaking his head.
After the show, Jonathan Tweeted, quote, "I'm sorry."
The general consensus is that Jonathan just had a panic attack, and everything is COOL with the group . . . because he was back with New Kids when they performed on the "Today" show on Friday.
Jonathan has struggled with severe anxiety. 12 years ago . . . in an interview with OPRAH WINFREY . . . he said, quote, "The whole New Kids thing was crazy. The more it grew, the more I just felt like I was trapped.
"I just always had this feeling inside me of always being nervous and afraid of situations."
