Reality television stars are often accused of acting for the cameras. But there was nothing fake about ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star Joe Gorga and his outburst at his son’s wrestling match.
Following a decision that went against his son, who wrestles for Ramapo High School (New Jersey), Gorga angrily walked out onto the mat to confront the referee. It took several members of the Ramapo coaching staff to escort Gorga away from the referee and out of the arena.
According to reporting from NorthJersey.com, Gorga was told by the referee to leave the gymnasium.
Per TMZ, who broke this story, Gorga apparently took issue with what an eyewitness claimed was “Gino’s opponent that day excessively slammed him on the mat not once, but twice — and not just that, but he shot a dirty look at Joe upon being declared the winner.”
Gino Gorga lost the match by decision.
At the end of the video, the opponent from Parsippany Hills (New Jersey) who wrestled Gorga’s son appeared to be taunting as he was leaving the mat.
