Melissa and Jackie revealed Margaret’s wicked ways long before Jennifer Aydin and Teresa Giudice ever warned the RHONJ newbies about the Macbeth Collection owner. At the start of season 13, Teresa and Jennifer told Rachel Fuda and Danielle Cabral that Margaret was a friend than an enemy.
After doing a little digging, AllAboutTRH uncovered an episode of the RHONJ: After Show from season 12 where Melissa and Jackie discussed Margaret‘s “gossip arsenal” that she uses against people when they cross her.
“Margaret knows everything about everyone, and she holds it in her pocket, and she’s not gonna take it out of her pocket unless you make her. So you don’t want to make Margaret your enemy because she has ammunition on everybody,” Jackie said on an episode of the season 12 RHONJ: After Show.
Melissa agreed, “Like I call her dynasty like she’s gossipy like she’s the one who’s like waking up in the morning. She doesn’t have little kids, so she has the time, like she’ll wake up in the morning, she pours her cup of coffee, she gets on, and starts talking to all her little girlfriends. Margaret knows everyone and everything.”
“Margaret won’t try to ruin your life, but if you come for her, she has got plenty on you. So you don’t wanna push her,” Jackie adds with a laugh.
This isn’t the first time Jackie exposed the real Margaret on RHONJ. While chatting with Dolores Catania during a season 12 event, Jackie said, “You do not want Margaret to be your enemy? See, Teresa’s got a loud bark, but Margaret’s the one you gotta keep on your good side.”
On this week’s episode of RHONJ, Rachel informed Margaret that Teresa “said that it’s better to have you as a friend than an enemy.”
She then spilled more tea.
“And then when I was shopping with Danielle this week, she was saying how you have this arsenal,” Rachel revealed, “you have it locked and loaded like you have information on every single one of us. She was saying you were judgmental.”
Obviously, Marge was angry when she heard this news and quickly shut down the claims.
“I’m not judgmental, I think I’m opinionated,” Marge insists.
RHONJ airs on Tuesdays at 9 pm on Bravo.
