Kim Granatell is no stranger to controversy. When Danielle Staub was still a cast member of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, she and Kim were, as Caroline Manzo would put it, “As thick as thieves”.
And on last week’s explosive episode, the Manzos unceremoniously booted Kim G out of Melissa Gorga’s holiday party after she turned up with an attorney who was suing Teresa and Joe Guidice.
But now Kim is making shocking allegations exclusively to RumorFix about incidents during the party that never made it to the final cut.
“Caroline Manzo is all about respect. Well, that night there was no respect,” says Kim. “It’s clear that Chris called me the c-word during that scene — it was bleeped out. When my son called Chris right after I left, it was to confront him about calling me that word. And it was never addressed, because the Manzos are presented as this clean-cut, goody two shoes family. But he said it. Is that respectful? If my son ever called any woman that, the next day I would drag him to her front door and make him apologize. But then, my son would never do that.”
Kim also claims that Chris’s brother, Albie, violently shoved her during the fracas. “I could have sued him for assault,” says Kim. “And my lame security did nothing to help me. I brought security with me to prevent trouble. I have three children, my life is valuable. If anything happened to me they would lose their mother.”
RumorFix reached out to Caroline about the incident, and she had a few choice words for Kim: “The actions of Kim G. speak sufficiently to the events of that evening and I don’t care to dignify this matter with any further comment.”
Wow, so much drama in NJ!
