Top 10 Fights on The Real Housewives of New Jersey

Ding, ding, ding! Round 1, fight! Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Fights on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

For this list, we’re taking a look at the craziest verbal and physical altercations to ever occur on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey”.

#10: The Fight at Posche

Whenever the ladies of RHONJ hit the town there’s bound to be drama! While crashing the annual Posche Fashion Show, Teresa and the rest of the girls get into it with Dolores, Siggy, and Kim D. The primary topic of discussion? The rumors that Kim D has been spreading about Teresa, involving her alleged infidelity while Joe’s been in prison. While all of the RHONJ ladies are quick to get in Kim’s face, Teresa is the one with the biggest ax to grind. However, after Kim refers to all of them as “dirty bitches”, things start to get out of hand. Soon chairs and insults are being hurled indiscriminately, culminating with the ladies storming off.

#9: Jennifer vs. Margaret

At Margaret’s invitation, the “Real Housewives” take a girl’s trip to Oklahoma. Unfortunately, some of them were at odds with the local customs, particularly Jennifer. After attending a party hosted by Margaret’s friends, she launches into a tirade about her hatred for the country music they played. The other women don’t take kindly to her attitude, chastising Jennifer and calling her “socially inappropriate”. This does not go over well and soon the entire room is engulfed in a petty argument over Jen’s behavior. It’s another classic RHONJ example of drama that just didn’t need to be.

#8: Caroline vs. Danielle

Whenever two of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” sit down to hash out a problem, sparks inevitably fly. Case in point: this season two summit between Danielle and Caroline. After spending much of the season in constant conflict, the two women decided to sit down together with the hope of resolving their issues. Primarily, Caroline tries to convince Danielle to drop assault charges against Ashley, which she refuses. This effectively ends any chance of the women coming to an agreement, and the sit down soon turns into a shouting match, with Caroline calling Danielle “a clown” and “garbage”.

#7: Danielle vs. Dolores

When a conversation between two people gets to the point where one of them is screaming “scumbag” at the top of their lungs, you know you’re watching “The Real Housewives of New Jersey”. This little brewhaha actually started off quite civilly, with Teresa, Dolores, Danielle and others sitting down to peacefully hash out their problems. However, when Dolores vehemently claims that she’s never let anyone speak badly about Teresa behind her back, Danielle pipes up, revealing that Dolores came to her in private to badmouth Teresa. This sets off a firestorm, with Dolores getting in Danielle’s face and calling her the aforementioned insult. As far as RHONJ fights go, we’d give this one a 7.

#6: Kim G. vs. the Manzo Family

During a Christmas party at the Manzo house back in season three, Kim G couldn’t help but stir up trouble. The primary reason for the altercation was Kim’s insistence that her lawyer friend, Monica Chacon, be allowed to stay at the party. However, the Manzos felt that it would be best if she left seeing as how she was the prosecuting attorney in a case against Teresa and Joe! With both sides refusing to budge things quickly got nasty. Kim G and Monica ultimately got the boot, but not before the former had said her piece.

#5: The Blowout in Milan

They should have called this episode of RHONJ “Fights Without Borders”. During a trip to Milan, the ladies couldn’t resist getting into a screaming match in the middle of dinner. Past indiscretions are brought up, battle lines are drawn; and soon the women are less concerned with their hors d'oeuvres and more concerned with tearing each other’s throats out. However, the women do unite against Siggy when she calls Margaret anti-Semitic even though Margaret is married to a Jew and raising her children to be Jewish. The whole thing was a big ugly mess. However, the real losers are the people dining in the background, who just wanted to have a nice meal.

#4: Joe vs. Joe at the Retreat

We’ve seen a lot of different fights so far, but this is the first where actual blows were thrown. The incident occurred during the appropriately titled season five episode “Scum One, Scum All”. On a retreat in Lake George, New York, things got messy when Teresa’s brother Joe Gorga called her “scum”. Upon hearing of this, Teresa’s husband Joe Giudice confronts him and demands an apology. Without thinking twice Gorga attacks him and soon everyone in the room is trying to separate the two warring parties. Once they’re pulled apart it’s revealed that Gorga bit Giudice on the testicles! Talk about fighting dirty!

#3: Teresa Chases Danielle

Few RHONJ fights have been as memorable as this one! During a night at the country club, Teresa and Danielle couldn’t help but let their emotions fly. The fight gave us some of their most unforgettable quotes, from the “I’m from Patterson” line, to Danielle reminding Teresa that her $5 million-dollar home is in foreclosure! Despite mobs of people trying to hold them back, they just keep going; with Teresa straight up chasing Danielle around the room – all the while calling her a “coke whore” and a “bitch”. With the country club in disarray, Danielle in tears and Teresa ready to scrap, this fight is one that viewers will never forget!

#2: The Christening Fight

RHONJ fights are like car crashes: you want to look away, but no matter how hard you try you can’t tear your eyes from the screen. One of the best – or worst, depending on your point of view – occurred in the first episode of season three; and at a christening no less! Problems arose when Teresa attempted to congratulate Joe and Melissa, despite already having done so earlier. With tempers running high, it was only a matter of time before things got physical; and boy did they ever! Joe Gorga and Joe Giudice were at each other’s throats once again. And while someone was screaming “You are family” over and over it clearly fell on deaf ears. This christening can be summed up in one word: mayhem!

Before we unveil our top pick, here are some honorable mentions:

Teresa Pushes Andy Cohen

Teresa & Caroline & the Cookbook Fight

Kathy & Teresa Fight on the Beach in Punta Cana

Rosie Freaks Out at the Reunion

Danielle vs. Kim G (Square Tits)

#1: Teresa Flips the Table

In the pantheon of RHONJ’s craziest moments, Teresa’s infamous table flip stands alone. The outburst was the culmination of a night filled with profanity-riddled tirades and constant squabbling from all the housewives. The night started off with Danielle and Caroline going toe-to-toe, as they’ve been known to do, but the fight soon grew to include the entire dinner party. However, it wasn’t until Danielle and Teresa started exchanging words that things truly got out of hand. Taking place all the way back in season one, this remains one of a handful of moments fans will never forget!
