Tension has been building on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" for two seasons -- and things finally erupted on Sunday night's show.

Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Kathy Wakile and their husbands grudgingly agreed to go on a weekend retreat in the Adirondacks (or as Kathy's lesbian sister Rosie calls them, the "Adriondykes") and patch up their dysfunctional family relationship.

With the help of two "team builders," things seemed to be going well, until discussions turned to family loyalty. Melissa felt Teresa wasn't owning up to her involvement in last season's "Strippergate" and literally begged her to stop:

But things got physical when Teresa's brother (and Melissa's husband) Joe Gorga called her "scum." Joe Guidice (Teresa's husband) stormed in to defend his wife. Not since the "christening from hell" have we seen the Jersey cast behaving so badly. Watch the fight (which continues in next week's episode):

Whose side are you on? Team Giudice or Team Gorga?
