Fans of the reality show Real Housewives of New Jersey were devastated to learn this week that star Johnny “The Greek” Karagiorgis had died of a heart attack on Saturday.
According to New York Daily News, Karagiorgis and his wife Penny Drossos were not full time members of the cast, but they added plenty of drama to the show. Karagiorgis filed a lawsuit against Bravo and its parent company NBC after a fight took place at the opening of cast member Kim DePaola’s store, Porsche 2 in Ridgewood, N.J.
The fight occurred after Melissa Gorga’s husband, Joe Gorga, confronted Karagiorgis about comments he had made about his wife. When criminal charges were filed against him, Karagiorgis filed the lawsuit claiming that the fight was engineered by the show’s producers.
Please keep your thoughts and prayers with Karagiorgis’s family during this difficult time.
