An attempt to patch up family differences erupts into a brawl on next week's episode.

on Jul 8, 2013 - The Dish0

Blood may be thicker than water—but in the case of the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast, they may start drawing actual blood.

On next week’s show, the Gorgas and the Giudices head to a family retreat to work on their issues—Teresa's rift with her brother; Melissa's ongoing feud with Teresa—but they don't actually reach a truce. In fact, things erupt into a full-blown brawl. Watch a preview below.

“You’re disappointing our family!” Teresa yells at her brother. “Get balls, be a man, stick with your blood.”

“I’m not sticking with scum like you,” Joe responds.

Teresa and Joe aren't the only ones to have an overheated moment. When he hears about Gorga's comment, Joe Giudice enters the fray and demands that Gorga apologize. The interaction boils over into a full-blown brawl.

Will the Gorga’s and the Giudice’s finally be able to find a little bit of peace? Tune in Sunday to find out!

OMG I have sat here and read all the posts and everyone is entitled to their opinion but the reality is these people are family and I have never seen any family fight like this, I do understand families will argue, disagree, say things that can be hurtful but come on all ready get over it or stay away...I will not put the blame on one side because it takes all 4 of them to act this way, being stupid on national tv   and where are the kids in this ?? suffering because they can not see the other side of the family who really does this ???? Time for all of them to get a set and sit down talk like adults they are suppose to be and stop already

Needless to say, I wasnt really expecting much from this retreat, but the brawl just proves how tense things are between this family.  I just woud like to state a few facts.  Joe Gorga rushed at Joe Guidice thereby taking it to the physical level.   Joe Gorga has said many many things about Teresa and her husband on camera.  The things Joe has said to Teresa's face as his sister,I would of personally slapped his face off myself if that were my brother.  See I have an evil sister-in-law and I have only one brother.  My family is estranged from my brother, his wife and their children because of the BS of my sister in law finding fault and placing blame on my family where it shouldnt belong.  My heart goes out to Teresa because I know how it feels to lose a brother that you were so close too.  I miss my brother every day and I am especially sad to see the effect it has on my parents.  While I believe Joe Gorga has to stand by his wife, I also believe he needs to make room in his life for his parents.  If Melissa cannot tolerate being around Joe's family then she needs to stay home and allow him and the children to attend family functions and share time with their Grandparents, Aunt and cousins without her negative influence.  Blood is thicker than water and children should be permittied to explore, embrace and enjoy both sides of their heritage.  Parents need to grow up and do whats best.

Melissa has no desire to work any issues out and it's so obvious. Melissa has started the trashing talking from day one and her victim act is no longer working. Joe Gorga has no loyalty and respect for his entire family. He is an embarrassment!

Joe Gorga has the common sense of a dress shoe.  How did this guy make it?  Oh thats right:   Joe Giudice taught him the real estate business....

Am I wrong or did Teresa say leave her father out of this he didn't sign up for the show, she did?    Why is she filming with her father??  Why don't she leave him out of it.  Don't have  anything against him but she said he didn't like the show, so why involve him.

Teresa, I think the underlying issue is... You are jealous of the happiness in the marriage of your brother and his wife and because she took the spot of you and the closeness you had with your brother. That's just what happens when men meet their life partners. You aren't hearing your brothers words...own up to the sh-t you have said and done, apologize and move on. Im not saying its all you but you are definitely playing your part. Jealousy is a MF! Take the high road.

Joe Gorga is very jealous of Juicy and Melissa Gorga is very jealous of Teresa and they have every right to be because Juicy and Teresa are very successful people and they did it thru hard work and Melissa wants in on the action or a piece of the pie by going after these 2 people instead of doing it thru hard work...but Melissa needs to stop focusing so much on Teresa and start focusing on how to be a faithful wife to her husband...and a faithful friend to Kathy...After all in the last episode..Melissa girlfriends told on Melissa and said that Melissa cheated on Joey...and all of America witnessed Melissa being unfaithful to her husband when Ritchie told Melissa that he has fantasizes about her...instead of Melissa putting him in his place...as a good wife should of done...she allowed Ritchie to disrespect her husband...because she loved that comment...a faithful wife would have put that man in his place...and as a good friend to Kathy...Melissa also disrespected  Kathy...she goaded Ritchie on by putting on a big smile and she seemed to enjoy it.. A faithful friend and a faithful wife would have stopped Ritchie in his tracks....Just sayin

I'm routing for Guidice to kick Gorga's butt.

This is just plain sad - it seems that Joey Gorga doesn't care about his parents, his sister or his beautiful nieces! Why can't he just accept the fact that not everyone likes his wife?

Joe and Melissa aren't worth the pain they cause Teresa. He and his wife are miserable human beings. Sorry Teresa and her parents have to suffer because of those 2 and their selfishness

 @cindyk64 Amen! It breaks my heart to see them act this way. RHONJ was always my favorite…..I don't know if I can keep watching this. So sad.

 at the Gym...Joe Gorga said that his problems began when his sister married....so I think you got it wrong.  He's jealous that his parents have a better relationship with their son in law than their own son.   Tre' has nothing to be jealous of Melissa...NOTHING.

 @ccdiva That's what you concluded without watching the show?

 @Debbieinmissouricitytx Are you serious? Do you even know the history of failed businesses that Joe Guidice has had?Lol! Teresa makes the money.

 @WCW When you get married, you should demand respect for your spouse. What you are saying is crazy. They are a package. Who wants to be around Teresa and all she does is criticize his wife. I would never let someone sit and talk about my husband. Teresa sees that hes not coming around until his wife is respected and all of the bashing stops. I dont blame him.

 @WCW Everyone likes his wife but his sister who just told him to leave his wife and choose Teresa over her. Teresa is not only without education and extremely ignorant but she must be crazy giving ultimatums like that.

 @happybrenda How do Teresa's parents suffer? If not talking is causing such a suffering for him, shouldn't Teresa's dad start talking with his own sister?

 @bravofan12  @Emily19  How does a parent pick one child over another?  The father has had an ongoing fight with his sister - so what kind of example has he set, a very poor example of family loyalty.

 

"You’re disappointing our family!” Teresa yells at her brother. “Get balls, be a man, stick with your blood"  Melissa and his children are his family and that is where his first loyalty should be.

 @carom  @WCW So right. When you marry, you become one with your partner. I have a lot of respect for Joe Gorga. So far, Melissa has said something about Teresa one time and her husband jumped down her throat about it. It's funny everyone on the show dont get along with Teresa. So your are saying everyone else is wrong?

 I think love for your kids is a little deeper than love for your siblings...as proven on this show...
