Sad News for Joe and Bessy Gatto’s Devoted Fans of “Impractical Jokers”!
The opening days of 2022 have been rough: from Joe Gatto’s departure from Impractical Jokers to the tragic death of Betty White only weeks before her 100th birthday. The bad news is that things have gotten even worse.
Millions of people around the world were getting ready to ring in the New Year when comedian Joe Gatto made a shocking announcement: he and his wife Bessy had separated.
Joe stunned his followers on Instagram on New Year’s Eve with a sombre message on his job and personal life.
Joe wrote, “I’ve decided to end my involvement with Impractical Jokers and I wanted to let everyone know.” “With the help of my pals, I’ve spent the last decade of my life developing this brand, and I’m quite pleased with the results.”
He elaborated, “However, I must withdraw at the present time because of problems in my private life. My ex-wife Bessy and I have mutually agreed to separate, and I must devote myself to being a good father and co-parent to our two wonderful children.”
Joe threw two curveballs at Impractical Jokers viewers. We all know that Joe has serious personal issues (probably the relationship split) that require him to leave the popular comedy group, but what exactly is the cause of the divorce between Joe and Bessy?
