This season Danielle Staub shocked the ladies (and viewers) when she revealed Teresa Giudice had encouraged her to pull Margaret Josephs’ hair during an argument at a clothing boutique. She also shocked production who was unaware that Teresa had anything to do with it. Margaret Josephs stopped by Grants Rants Hollywood Talk and revealed that she had no idea about Teresa’s involvement. She told the podcast, “None of us had any idea – not even production. It was not a setup. It was a very authentic moment when Danielle revealed that the only people who knew about it at that moment were Danielle, Steven Dann, and Teresa. Production hadn’t even looked at the tapes at that point so Melissa was in shock – it was very crazy. So when Melissa came back and told us, you saw all our mouths”
She adds, “This was the whole thing – they [Danielle and Teresa] were whispering. Production was filming us. The audio person knew they were saying something, she wasn’t hyper-focusing. Their intimate moment there, you saw, they had what Teresa was saying, obviously turned it louder so the viewers could see it. But – they also subtitled it. They weren’t sure what was happening at the time. – – You know, they don’t review the footage right when it happens. It’s when they go to edit the episodes. They weren’t even up to it. We were still in filming season.”
Marge SR. even chimed in saying that Danielle tends to encourage Teresa’s drinking saying, “Danielle is crazy. Danielle actually – Teresa I really like. But, what happens is, Danielle made sure she was drunk all the time whenever they were together. She kept giving her alcohol and unfortunately Teresa doesn’t think very clearly when she’s drunk.”
I am shocked production was unaware and didn’t catch the conversation between Teresa and Danielle. It seems like they may have missed this had Danielle not said anything. But like Danielle has stated she holds onto everything no matter who you are to her.
