Drama is brewing within the RHONJ cast! Margaret Josephs doesn’t want to film season 14 of RHONJ with Louie Ruelas because she doesn’t “feel safe.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast is set to start filming for season 14 in August, but The U.S. Sun reports that there is still plenty of offscreen bad blood between Margaret Josephs and Teresa Giudice‘s husband Louie Ruelas.
According to sources close to RHONJ production, Margaret doesn’t feel safe filming season 14 of the show with Louie. Margaret reportedly doesn’t want to film with Louie and is threatening to involve her legal team if Bravo tries to push them to film together for season 14 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
“Margaret has made it clear that she does not feel safe filming around Louie,” a source close to production revealed. “She said that she was going to get her lawyers involved and had threatened not to film with Louie. The cast is still very much divided, and there is still a lot of leftover tension from the reunion.”
At the RHONJ season 13 reunion, Margaret went head to head with both Louie and Teresa.
Teresa called Margaret “a devil” and said she was a “f***ing criminal.”
Margaret fired back: “You are gaslit every single day. He belittled you. He makes you look like an a**hole.” She added that she never wanted to see Louie’s “f***ing sham of a face again.”
The full cast from season 13 of RHONJ has been asked back for season 14 of the show. Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs, Jennifer Aydin, Dolores Catania, Rachel Fuda, and Danielle Cabral have all been offered contracts and are expected to return for season 14 of the RHONJ. Jennifer Fessler and Jackie Goldschneider are also expected to return as friends of the Housewives.
Contracts have not been signed, but negotiations are underway. Stay tuned for more details as they emerge.
Filming for season 14 of RHONJ will reportedly kick off in August.
