Margaret Josephs The Real Housewives of New Jersey - RHONJ

Is Margaret Josephs Still Moving Forward With her Children’s Hospital Gowns?

Other than feuding with Danielle Staub, this season Margaret’s main story line has been working on a children’s hospital gown line. Marge says she was inspired after her stay in the hospital, which left her heart broken after seeing sick children, which made her think that there had to be a better way. Up until the last episode, Marge seemed full steam ahead until she realized that someone else had already thought of this. So is she still moving forward with her idea?

In short, the answer is yes. Speaking with Page Six, Marge stated that the gowns are:

“being manufactured. They’re a little expensive right now. They are in some hospitals. So we are working overseas to get them made less expensively. So hopefully in the spring they’ll be a lot less expensive.”

“People are really just buying the gowns and donating them. That’s what we’ve been doing right now to hospitals because they are expensive because they’re made in the States.”

While I (obviously) applaud anyone hoping to make things a bit brighter for sick children, I was a little put off by Margaret at the charity gala. The fact that she was now a partner vs. creator seemed like a footnote as she barely mentioned the creator of Brave Gowns, Summer Germann. Perhaps she did and Bravo chose not to show it; however I thought it would have been appropriate to hear from Summer as well.

According to Bravo, Margaret founded the charity, Hospital Heroes, which provides “superhero-themed hospital robes to young patients.” Regarding Brave Gowns, Marge is noted  to be working with the company which has a similar mission. According to Margaret’s own website, you can ‘give the gift of a Brave Gown’ by donating on her website. Am I the only one confused on her role? At the end of the day all that matters is that money was raised for a great cause; however I would like some clarification on Margaret’s company as it seems a bit murky.

Thoughts on this?
