Margaret Josephs reveals why she didn’t join the Real Housewives of New Jersey during season 6 after Bravo invited her to join the cast.
“I had prior obligations for a different show, which I discuss in the book [that never transpired], I couldn’t do it,” she told HollywoodLife. “It just wasn’t meant to be, and timing is everything. It wasn’t the right timing. And obviously, I didn’t get my own show. [It] never happened. Then, that contract expired, and when [RHONJ] had come back to me, it worked out perfectly.”
She then explains why joining RHONJ during season 6 wouldn’t have been good for her or the show, noting that she knows she would NOT have gotten along with Amber and Jim Marchese.
“Maybe they wouldn’t have had Amber and [her husband] Jim [as part of the cast], or maybe — I don’t know. I just think I was on at the right time. I don’t think I would have interacted very well with them. I think I would have gotten along well with Dina [Manzo], but Jim and Amber were totally different people. I just don’t think it would have worked out as well. Season six just wouldn’t have been the right time for me, even though my career was going great,” she confesses.
RHONJ airs on Wednesdays at 9 pm EST on BRAVO.
