Ever since the announcement of Gatto's personal and professional setback, fans have been looking back at the time when everything was perfect in the beloved comedian's life. Impractical Jokers premiered on truTV on December 15, 2011, and presented the remarkable members of Tenderloins to the world.

The duo was in a long-distance relationship till 2010, when Bessy, a California native, moved to New York and started a live-in relationship with Gatto. The pair tied the knots three years later in 2013.

Bessy is a passionate animal advocate, and together with Joe, she has rescued a pack of dogs through the years.
