The hair pull heard around New Jersey has reared it’s ugly head back in the spotlight. However,  this time around we’ve learned some new information that’s leaving everyone shocked to the core.

On Wednesday’s episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle Staub revealed to Melissa Gorga that Teresa Giudice encouraged her to pull Margaret Josephs’ hair.

“I was done [with the fight] when I dumped Margaret’s bag in the candle,” Danielle explained. “I was finished. But then Steven told me I should go pull her hair.”

“Steven, the owner of the boutique?” Melissa asked, to which Danielle replied, “Yeah.”

Danielle then revealed that someone else was also involved. “When Steven said, ‘Do it,’ I hesitated. And then, I looked at Teresa and she said, ‘Yeah, do it.’”

A shocked Melissa then tried to clarify Danielle’s claim asking, “You’re saying Teresa told you to pull [Margaret’s] hair?” And Danielle said, “Yes.”

At first, many assumed Danielle was lying but then producers showed footage that proves Teresa did tell Danielle to pull Margaret’s hair.

“Yeah, you should,” Teresa could be seen telling Danielle. The RHONJ OG then could be seen saying “Do it,” to Danielle EIGHT times in a row!


Following the explosive episode of RHONJ, Jennifer Aydin appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and dished on the shocking revelation.

“I felt bad for Teresa, honestly,” Jennifer revealed. “I did, I did because I know why she said what she said and I know why she did it. We spoke about it at reunion so I don’t really want to give anything away but she didn’t even think it was going to be that brutal.”

She continued, “Which at the end of the day you could think ‘How could someone pull someone’s hair and it not be brutal?’ but she really did drag her across the room and nobody was expecting that. We even saw by the time we turned around Margaret was half-way across the room and it was brutal.”


As for Margaret, she reacted to the shocking revelation on Twitter, writing,  “Well that was crazy…. I guess it wasn’t a knee jerk reaction, it was after the fact and premeditated. ????”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.

Thoughts on this all? Are you shocked by Teresa’s involvement? Do you think there’s more to the story than what we saw? Will this affect Margaret and Teresa’s friendship?
