John Karagiorgis, best known to us as “Johnny the Greek” from the Real Housewives of New Jersey has died of a massive heart attack according to Vicki Hyman at NJ.com.
Here at Tamara Tattles we are especially saddened by the news. I was once coerced by Johnny to speak with him on the phone, something anyone who knows me knows I am loathe to do. Johnny was always quite funny and upbeat during our occasional chats. He was usually out somewhere with Penny who would chime in at times and give me updates on all things RHONJ.
Johnny the Greek was front and center in one of the biggest dramas ever on RHONJ, Stiletto Gate 2013.
You really must go back and read this post. It was Jac Laurita at her most batshit crazy.
The article also says that Jac testified that JtG “came dressed in clothes like he was ready for a fight.”Well there is some damning evidence. HE WAS DRESSED IN CLOTHES! Give these people their warrant judge. He.was.dressed.in.clothes. But wait, Jac has more to say. The article continues… “Moments before the altercation, Laurita said she was part of a “tsunami of people” packed into the boutique for the grand opening. That’s when she claims Karagiorgis “lunged towards me, and I heard him yelling, ‘I’ll [expletive] kill you.” She said Karagiorgis “had a crazy look in his eyes, like he was on drugs or something,” and, in lunging at her, may have “bumped” her, causing her to fall to the ground. But she acknowledged before Pfund that, amid all of the confusion, security guards who stepped in to usher Karagiorgis from the event could very well have knocked her over. “I can’t be 100 percent sure he caused me to fall.”
John seemed like a fun guy in our brief encounters, and TamaraTattles.com sends out its deepest condolences to John’s wife Penny, and her family.
