Things got ugly between Jennifer Aydin, Joe, and Melissa Gorga after they attended BravoCon in New York City.

There were many reports that Jennifer threw a drink at Joe Gorga.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is now speaking out to explain what happened.

She explained that after the Bravo-organized event, she went to an after-party accompanied by her assistant. She explained that her husband Bill Aydin was tired and stayed at the hotel.

Jennifer reported that she didn’t stay long at the party and went back to the hotel. In the lobby, she saw Joe and Melissa.

She explained that she saw them, looked away, and walked to the elevators. At that point, she heard Melissa calling her name followed by insults.

According to Jennifer, Melissa yelled, “Loser.”

She said that she replied to Melissa, “Don’t start none, won’t be none.” Joe, then started yelling profanities at Jennifer. He even told her, “Suck a D**k, Bi**.”

Jennifer further explained in her social media post that although it was Melissa who started the verbal attack, Joe quickly joined in. And they both started yelling profanities at her and even said some derogatory words.

Jennifer went on to say that she felt very threatened when Joe and Melissa’s talent guy came up very close to her and was cursing at her too. She asked him to get away from her, and when he didn’t, she threw the rest of her drink of water and ice at him.
