Bessy Gatto is a dog enthusiast, and sits on the committee for the nonprofit organisation Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs.

She’s also on Instagram (link; 109K followers) and TikTok (link; 9.6K followers), and has addressed – directly and indirectly – her and Joe’s separation on both platforms.

Two days later, on TikTok, she spliced another user’s question, “What’s that broken thing in your house that everybody just accepts and lives with?”, with a video of her raising her hand while cuddling her dog.

Bessy and Joe Gatto are, at time of writing, still married – neither has said anything publicly about divorce proceedings.

She will turn 40 in April this year. Joe Gatto, meanwhile, is 45 years old – his birthday falls on June 5, 1976, meaning he will turn 46 two months after Bessy turns 40.

Bessy Getto’s net worth is not publicly available, since she’s not so much a public figure as her estranged husband. 

However, depending on whether or not they get divorced, and if they do so in a state that uses a community property system, it may become possible to estimate at least a chunk of Bessy’s net worth in a few months’ time.

Bessy has two credits on IMDB, both as ‘self’: one for an appearance on Impractical Jokers in 2015, and one the year before, in Jokers Wild.
