'Impractical Jokers' Star Joe Gatto's $2.7 Million NY Mansion Up For Grabs In Divorce From Wife Bessy
Impractical Jokers star Joe Gatto purchased a mega-mansion with his wife Bessie three years before they decided to end their marriage — and the two will have to negotiate who walks away with the property in their divorce.
According to real estate records obtained by Radar, Gatto and his wife dropped $2.7 million on a 6-bedroom, 6-bathroom, 6,000 sq. ft. mansion in the city of Old Brookville in 2018.
The real estate listing describes the home as “Georgian-style Colonial.” The pad features a long driveway, a new chef's eat-in kitchen with a breakfast nook, a master suite with a fireplace, and a massive swimming pool.
The pair sold off their 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home in the city of Lynbrook in 2019 for $675k. They had purchased the property for $485,000 in 2015.

Gatto explained, “due to some issues in my personal life, I have to step away. Bessy and I have decided to amicably part ways, so now I need to focus on being the best father and co-parent to our two incredible kids.”
He added, “Outside of my family, my relationships with Murr, Q and Sal have been the most important in my life. I know they will continue to make the world laugh … I am very thankful to have worked with each and every one of them.”
At the moment, no divorce appears to have been filed by the couple but it appears they have already started the talks.
