It seems that the drama of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" isn't kept in front of the cameras. It has merged off the screen as well. On Sept. 11, NBC New York reported that authorities say that the attorney for reality stars Christopher and Jacqueline Laurita was a fake.
The man, 53-year-old Mark McGuire of Franklin Lakes misrepresented himself as a lawyer. He spent more than 45 minutes with Jacqueline and Christopher when they were being interviewed by police back in April over an assault that took place at a clothing store in Ridgewood. As detectives investigated, they discovered that McGuire wasn't an attorney at all.
Christopher and Jacqueline Laurita as well as Joe Gorga have to appear in court on Sept. 26. John Karagiorgis claims that he was injured when Jacqueline Laurita hit him with her heel. The argument took place in the Posche 2 boutique and Karagiorgis says he was threatened, but the defendants claim that John was the one making the threats. The cast of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" have also accused him of stalking and harassment.
Mark McGuire, accused of being a fake attorney for the "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" couple was charged and has been released on his own recognizance.
