Several members of Bravo's reality show, The Real Housewives of New Jersey are facing criminal charges for a bloody brawl that took place on March 30.

Joe Gorga, who is married to RHONJ star Melissa Gorga, and her co-star, Jacqueline Laurita and her husband, Christopher Laurita, had a physical altercation at Kim D. Porsche's Boutique in Ridgewood, N.J. on Saturday.

According to People, the three came to blows together after a guest mocked Jacqueline and Christopher's son, Nicholas, 3, who has autism and a Bravo TV cameraman captured it all on tape.

"It was a huge brawl," Jennifer Dunn, a local salon owner who shares space with the new boutique told the Fairlawn-Saddlebrook Patch. "Three of Kim D's clothes racks were destroyed and three of our custom sinks were broken. There was blood on the walls." 

A Ridgewood, N.J. judge did not charge the couple for assaulting John Karagiorgis, who hails from Paramus, N.J., but has determined there is probable cause to be charged, according to The Bergen Record.  A hearing for the trio has been set for April 18.

In a new report, another source revealed that RHONJ castmember, Terese Guidice, was the real reason behind the fight. Joe Gorga is Teresa Giudice's brother and she does not get along with his wife, Melissa Gorga. She reportedly arranged for Karagiorgis, and his wife, Penny Karagiorgis, to start the fight with the Gorgas to help damage Melissa's reputation.

"Teresa has been talking sh*t about everyone on the show, and she roped Johnny and Penny Karagiorgis into doingher dirty work this season," the insider told Radar Online.

"Melissa Gorga had had enough of the lies she says they're spreading about her, so Teresa finally said she would confront Penny, which did not go well because she denied any of her involvement!" 

Giudice told Melissa that she doesn't know Penny but was later caught in a lie - Penny revealed that she speaks to Giudice on a regular basis.

"Teresa tried to tell Melissa that she and Penny weren't even friends, but Penny called her out!" said the source. "Penny started screaming that she and Teresa talk on the phone all the time, that they talk for hours each night and says that she even has phone records, which makes Teresa furious!"

"Instead of arguing back or denying that she did ever talk to Penny, Teresa just kept screaming over and over again 'Whatever, b*tch!' and then told her to 'F*ck off!'"

The insider said Penny intends to prove her friendship with Giudice by presenting phone records that will confirm they speak on a regular basis.

"Teresa is so scared about these phone records coming out! Even though she tries to play nice her hatred for Melissa will not stop. She's brought in these other people to destroy Melissa and now it is finally backfiring!"

When Melissa realized that Giuduce may have been responsible, she tried to end the argument between Penny and Giudice. 

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 5 will premiere on June 5 at 8pm EST on Bravo.

The entire cast from the show will return for season 5- Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, and Kathy Wakile. Bravo has yet to announce if there will be any new cast members next season.
