The reality TV couple had a playful squabble, which was filmed by OKmagazine.com and a harmless fairytale character was at the heart of the argument.
The E! News correspondent’s husband resorted to calling his mother-in-law when Giuliana denied that her own mom once called her Pinocchio.
But the 37-year-old was horrified when she heard her mother’s response that she indeed had once used the name in reference to her daughter.
Giuliana yelled: “Mama! Shut-up-a-ya face.”
In the end Giuliana – who was born in Naples, Italy – claims that her mom didn’t understand the question.
