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!
