Remember the Gotti brothers? Reality TV's original guidos and the grandsons of mafia kingpin John Gotti? Time and the emergence of Jersey Shore has made them pretty much irrelevant. Even Dwyane Wade, who hasn't exactly been careful with who he associates himself with in the past, won't talk to them.
Page Six reports that Carmine Gotti, the oldest of the Growing Up Gotti stars, was having his birthday party in the upstairs level of M2, a club in New York's Meatpacking district. Meanwhile, Wade was downstairs, apparently celebrating his win over the Knicks. Carmine thought it'd be the best birthday ever if he could get his overly-tanned face in the same picture as Wade.
"There's no way I'm meeting the Gottis or having my photo taken with them," reportedly replied Wade.
Then the two sides' body guards apparently got in a minor scuffle, before Wade decided to leave. Apparently Wade will not be sending a gift basket full of hair gel as a peace offering.

We wonder if Wade would reply the same way if he wound up in the same club as Snooki. Then we realized, considering there's about a five-foot height difference, it may be physically impossible to get both of them in the same picture.
