Real Housewives of New Jersey newbie Traci Lynn Johnson never expected drinks to fly when she joined the cast during season 12.
As the RHONJ cast kicked off their cast trip to Nashville drama erupted between Teresa Giudice and Margaret Josephs.
Teresa threatened to “beat the f—king crap” out of Margaret. This not-so-subtle threat came after Teresa accused Margaret of spreading rumors about her man Louie Ruelas to “bloggers.”
While Margaret denied the claims, Teresa didn’t buy it and tossed several drinks at Margaret while calling her a
Traci was sitting next to Margaret during the altercation and was flabbergasted by the “shocking” moment.
“I did not see that coming quite honestly. I don’t think I ever would’ve anticipated an almost 50-year-old woman clearing a table of drinks at someone. That just isn’t people I associate myself with,” Traci revealed on the Wednesday, April 13, episode of Us Weekly’s “Getting Real with the Housewives” podcast. “So, that was shocking and what Marge was saying, wasn’t something that warranted that reaction.”
“I don’t think Marge would ever do that. I think Marge has the 4-1-1 on everyone in New Jersey. I’ve never met someone that knew more people, knows about everyone. She knows my landscaper’s brother’s son. I mean, she knows everyone in this Garden State, and I think people just come to her with information and what she does with it, she does,” Traci explained. “But she would never, ever give information to the press about Luis because that was her friend. She only wanted the best for Teresa.”
She also admits that the fight left her emotional and stunned.
“I cried. I don’t think they showed it, but I cried,” Traci admitted. “I was like, ‘I am so sorry. I brought you [Tiki] into these crazy people.’ It was like an image of a zoo. It was like they let the animals out of the cages.”
As for the future of Teresa and Margaret’s friendship, Traci says she’s not sure they can mend fences.
“There’s always hope out there, but I’m not really sure,” she said.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
