Margaret Josephs has no regrets about publicly fighting with her husband Joe Benigno during a cast trip to the Jersey shore.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star dished to Page Six on her solid eight-year marriage despite the few hiccups she and Joe endured during season 11.
“He is the best husband. He gets me. We get each other,” Margaret said of Joe.
In the March 24 episode of RHONJ, fans saw Margaret yell at Joe after co-star Jennifer Aydin claimed Joe also heard the rumor that Evan Goldschneider cheated on his wife, Jackie Goldschenider. Jennifer then insinuated that Joe had heard the rumor before Teresa Giudice revealed it at Evan’s birthday party.
Jackie and Evan denied the rumor while Joe insisted he didn’t believe there was truth to the gossip.
“Everyone’s like, ‘Oh, you screamed at him. He’s a baby,’” Margaret said. “What did everyone want him to do? Scream in my face if I’m having a temper tantrum? What do you do when someone has a fit? Any normal husband is going to address it later. Just like if he was very upset about something, I’m not going to start screaming at him. I’m going to diffuse the situation and then react later.”
Margaret says that while she loves how well the RHONJ husbands get along, their guy’s night gossip session was a “bad game of telephone.”
She also quipped that RHONJ, in general, is notorious for being a game of who-said-what.
Despite the backlash Margaret received from some fans, she has no regrets about how she acted at that moment.
“I think I hold everybody accountable, even my husband,” she said. “I didn’t even care. Everyone’s like, ‘You spoke to your husband so poorly!’ My husband behaved so poorly in a scenario that was unacceptable to me. So, yes, I was a bitch about it. I’m not going to lie. Am I sorry? No.”
RHONJ airs on Wednesdays at 9 pm EST on BRAVO.
