‘RHONJ’: Nicole Pulls Out Amber’s Hair During Major Cat-Fight

'RHONJ' headed to a costume party on the August 3 episode, but true emotions couldn't be disguised behind the ladies' scantily clad outfits -- especially when it came to rumors of Nicole being a home-wrecker. Warning: major showdown ahead. What would The Real Housewives of New Jersey be without a good old fashioned fight? No, Teresa Giudice didn't flip another table, but the housewives did flip out on each other. Like, really flip out. Read on for the details -- alcohol consumption, hair pulling and screaming ensues.

‘RHONJ’: Teresa & Joe Giudice Focus On Family

On the August 3 episode of RHONJ, Teresa kept her focus on the family. Teresa who’s known for her hot temper and table-flipping abilities (yes, we were gifted with a flashback scene of that beautiful moment on the new episode), made sure that everyone knew she’s focused on family over everything else.

“I used to have a hot Italian temper,” Teresa says, adding that she wants to teach her children not to react to others who push their buttons. “Through this legal issue we’re dealing with, I’m just a mom.”

Teresa and Joe tell their girls that their “sisterly bond” should stay strong forever, but Teresa couldn’t help but to shed a few tears. (She must be thinking of her potential future — in jail.)

Nicole Pulls Out Amber’s Hair In Major Cat-Fight

While Teresa and Joe were focusing on the kids, Nicole Napolitano was pulling out Amber Marchese hair. At Bobby’s (Nicole’s boyfriend) first responder costume party, the ladies showed up in full life-saver garb — sexy firefighters, pleather bodysuits and Dina Manzo‘s unsexy scrubs to deflect her blind date (gotta love her).

Unfortunately, the housewives’ slutty Halloween costumes weren’t the focus of the night. And either was “Jimmy James” — even though he did spark a fight with Melissa Gorga‘s husband, which we’ll have to wait until next week to see in action.

Melissa had heard from Amber that Nicole broke up a family, and the aftermath wasn’t pretty. Nicole pulled Amber’s hair, drinks were thrown and F-bombs were unleashed. Seriously, Nicole literally pulled out Amber’s hair — and Jim held onto a giant clump of it, after the fight. For extra ammo, he threw it onto the kitchen counter where the housewife husbands were having some peaceful guy time. (Not for long.)

Thank god for the housewives — they make us all feel so normal.
