Ridgewood Patch reported Wednesday night that at a grand opening of the Posche 2 clothing boutique in Ridgewood, one of the guests at the opening was thought to have made comments about cast member Jacqueline Laurita and Chris Laurita's autistic son, leading to a fight.
"Joe Gorga and Albie Manzo came to Christopher Laurita's aid during the confrontation," the Patch article quotes a witness as saying, but it does not specify that either man was involved in any physical altercation. At some point, however, the tenseness led to a brawl involving some (but not all) of the RHONJ men. Sources told the newspaper that Manzo is not named in a subsequent police complaint.
The new season of the show will reportedly begin airing in May.
