After her involvement in the huge brawl at the opening of POSHE 2, Real Housewives of New Jersey Star Jacqueline Laurita is speaking out. Jacqueline and her tells PEOPLE Magazine that she is focusing on the positive and she has a good relationship with all her co-stars right now.
“We’ve all been through so much but we are in a really good place right now,” she shares. “We’ve put a lot of the bad blood behind us and worked through our issues.”
It was reported that Jacqueline took off her stilettos and hit John Karagiorgis over the head with her heel, leaving a huge gash in his forehead (photo below). The official complaint made by John states, “Ms. Jacqueline Laurita then struck the victim in the forehead with the heel of a stiletto type shoe. Eventually, security for the television show was able to separate all parties involved without any further incidents.” The police report states Karagiorgis “had obvious injuries to his head,” including lumps and abrasions.
A friend of Jacqueline’s is defending her against the allegations made by Johnny. “She never used her shoe against [Karagiorgis]. And everyone felt as though he came in there confrontational, and instigated the fight,” Jac’s friend insists.
The Laurita’s are alleging Johnny made comments about their autistic son, Nicholas. Karagiorgis completely denies these accusations and says he would never bring up anyone’s child. Chris Laurita tells PEOPLE of Nicholas, “He keeps progressing, and then regressing, but he’s doing so well. We’re really happy with his progress. He’s a great little boy.”
Jacqueline & Chris Laurita along with Joe Gorga have all been charged with assault and making terroristic threats. They have also all filed counter-complaints against Johnny. Those are currently being investigated by authorities. An initial hearing is set for April 18. No arrests have been made at this point.
