“Mob Wives” star Marissa Jade still has hard feelings when it comes to Season 6 co-star Brittany Fogarty. The two clashed during a recent episode, and the bad blood has yet to subside. Jade detailed their fight and her dislike for Fogarty during an interview with Radar Online Thursday.
Jade, 31, and Fogarty, 25, didn’t like each other from the beginning. But tensions rose when Fogarty threatened to fight Jade. But it was the Staten Island, New York, native who landed the first blow. “[I smacked her] because she got in my space,” Jade told Radar Online. “I mean, her mouth was going, then she kind of walked around the table and was like, ‘I want to fight you.’ I just blacked out, like, ‘Oh you want to fight me? Stupid move!’ ”

Jade said putting her hands on her “Mob Wives” co-star was the right thing to do. “I mean I tried to speak to her like a woman. I tried to tell her to lower her voice. I tried my best to resolve what I could have to appease her because at the end of the day, I could care less about the conversation,” she said.
VH1 portrayed the incident properly, Jade said. “But as you saw on the show, that she did not wanted to speak, she wanted to fight me,” Jade said. “She thought she was tough, and she got her --- handed to her.”
“Mob Wives” aired a new episode Wednesday after the death of Angela “Big Ang” Raiola. During a separate interview with Hollywood Life last week, Jade said she was “shocked” by Raiola’s death. “She went from being okay to really bad,” she said. “I had a great time working with her. I wish I got to know her more, she’s a great person, fun-loving I could only wish to spend more time with her. It’s very sad.”
Big Ang died from stage 4 brain and lung cancer Feb. 18. She was 55. She is survived by two children and six grandchildren.
The final season of the hit VH1 reality show, “Mob Wives: The Final Stand,” airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EDT.
