Margaret Josephs jumped right into the drama on the Real Housewives of New Jersey and immediately rubbed co-star Siggy Flicker the wrong way.
At this point, it’s pretty obvious that Margaret and Siggy will NEVER be friends as the RHONJ co-stars have a long list of unresolved issues.
In a new interview with Us Weekly, Margaret opens up her and Siggy’s feud and also dishes on season 9 casting rumors.
When asked if she has talked to Siggy since wrapping the reunion, Margret replies,“Umm, who?” making it clear she hasn’t.
While Siggy made her fair share of attacks, Margaret says Siggy’s accusations at the RHONJ reunion pissed her off since Siggy has NEVER been a businesswoman.
“I think she was desperate to discredit me, but she’s never ran a business or had a career, so she knows nothing of the real world and business,” Margaret confessed. “She’s never ran a business, had a business. She’s not a licensed professional, nor has she ever had a business, so I could never expect her to understand anything regarding business. I have nothing to hide.”
Another hot button issue between the RHONJ co-stars was when Siggy called Margaret anti-Semitic after Margaret referenced Hitler during an argument.
Andy revealed that he nor his parents were insulted by Margaret using Hitler’s name nor did they think it meant she was anti-Semitic.
“I love that Andy took my side considering he normally doesn’t get in the middle of any housewives drama. He stays impartial,” Margaret explained. “I felt great that he came to my defense. I felt validated. He did what he thought was right.”
However, Siggy wasn’t the only co-star Margaret didn’t get along with. The RHONJ newbie also had issues with Siggy’s BFF Dolores Catania.
“I was very upset the way she treated Danielle [Staub],” Margaret said about Dolores. “I was devastated, I would never treat anyone that way. I haven’t spoken to Dolores, but I’m hoping we can seek and work out our differences now that Siggy — the unmentionable — is out of the picture.”
As for season 9 casting rumors and the possibility that former RHONJ stars Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita could return, Margaret says she wouldn’t mind getting to know them but hopes Bravo brings on someone new instead.
“I don’t know them,” Margaret said about Caroline and Jacqueline. “I’m sure they are lovely, but I hope we get someone new and spunky. New is always fun.”
To wrap Margaret says she has no regrets about season 8.“I don’t have any regrets. I usually regret what I haven’t done, not what I’ve done. I think it’s quite clear who came out on top … and it certainly wasn’t the cake.”
Thoughts on Margaret’s interview? Do you think Margaret will have issues with Dolores moving forward? Did Dolores treat Danielle terribly? Should Bravo bring back Caroline and Jacqueline or hire someone new? Are you surprised Andy took Margaret’s side? Sound off below!
