Teresa Giudice isn't the only Real Housewives of New Jersey star in legal trouble.

Though the knock-down drag out brawl that occurred amongst the RHONJ cast in 2013 never made it to air, has exclusively learned that both Andy Cohen and NBC have been added to a lawsuit filed regarding the incident.

On March 31, 2013 John Karagiorgis and his wife Penny Karagiorgis attended an event for Kim DePaola's shop Posche 2 at the Moxie Salon, but the night of glitz and glam would end in a brutal group fight. Later that year, the couple filed a lawsuit against Joe Gorga, Christopher Laurita and Jacqueline Laurita but the case has continued to drag.

According to new documents -- obtained by -- filed in January 2015, the Karagiorgis' have added NBC, the parent network of Bravo and Andy Cohen to their lawsuit, accusing both parties of "gross negligence."

Additionally, the couple claims that RHONJ cast members, Cohen and NBC had devised a "plan and/or conspiracy to act in concert to humiliate and/or to create a verbal and/or physical altercation with Plaintiffs that could foreseeably result in the injuries that Plaintiffs have suffered."

The documents state that the defendants failed to provide any medical aid for John Karagiorgis after encouraging/and or permitting Gorga and the Lauritas to "unlawfully attack" him.

Karagiorgis told exclusively that he could not comment on the lawsuit but did offer that "it's amazing and disgusting what we learned."

His rep later told "Based on new information, after a thorough investigation, video and sworn statements, any and all additional parties will be exposed and prosecuted."

The Karagiorgis' are seeking punitive damages, in addition to the cost of attorneys' fees.
