Margaret Josephs

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Walking On Broken Glass

She’s managed to behave herself for long enough – now it’s time for Teresa Giudice to start breaking sh*t in restaurants again! This week on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, Tre goes bananas when she hears Kim DePaola is spreading rumors about her rumored side piece. But her real issue is with Dolores Catania, who she claims didn’t defend her against the three-headed snake that is Kim D. While Siggy Flicker and Melissa Gorga come to a better place after a “healing” exercise about cake -(yesss! please let this be the frigging cake’s final gasp!) – Danielle Staub silently plans her next move against Dolores. As for Margaret Josephs? Well, she just continues to be kind of awesome.

We begin at Siggy’s hellish retreat, where she’s mimicking Margaret in a far inferior sketch than Marge just pulled off. No one is impressed. Furthermore, no one understands how this lame game is supposed to bring them closer together. Essentially, it’s like we’ve all died and gone to corporate retreat team building hell. But anyway, here we are. At least Siggy and Margaret get over the exercise fairly quickly, returning amicably to their spot on the wall of shame. But not so fast for Siggy! Get back in the ring, woman!

Margaret Josephs

This week in her blog entry, The Real Housewives of New Jersey newcomer Margaret Josephs gives us a look at her family’s ups and downs. She also weighs in on the ridiculous over-the-top behavior of Siggy Flicker, most specifically her trying to make the cake drama seem equal to Margaret’s family heartache. Same, right? #sarcasm

She starts off her blog talking about her complicated relationship with Margaret Sr. “Family is sometimes hard work, and it’s definitely always a work in progress. Life’s journey doesn’t come with a road map, and there are pitfalls at every turn that no one can plan for.”

Margaret Josephs Thinks Danielle Staub Should Have Been A Full Time Housewife & Was Scared To Meet Kim D

There is no doubt that Margaret Josephs is a major factor on Real Housewives of New Jersey and it’s only her first season. She’s been feuding with Siggy Flicker since episode 1, her mother Marge Sr. is hysterical, and she even has a signature hairstyle. Meanwhile, some other cast members aren’t doing much aside from plugging their own businesses.

Love her or hate her, Margaret is definitely keeping things interesting on RHONJ. She is not at all shy when it comes to sharing her opinion.

Siggy Flicker Discusses What Wasn’t Shown On RHONJ, Jacqueline Laurita Leaving The Show, & Why Teresa Giudice Is The Number One Housewife In History

There’s no doubt that Real Housewives of New Jersey has centered around Teresa Giudice and her family for most of its run. While the Giudices bring the most compelling moments to Season 8, this season’s arguing is focused on Siggy Flicker. Almost every conversation leads back to Siggy and she hasn’t been showed in the most favorable light.

Siggy opened up about what wasn’t shown that led to her explosive reactions, Jacqueline Laurita leaving the show, and what makes Teresa such a great Housewife.

Danielle Staub Addresses Dolores Catania’s Drug Accusations, Siggy Flicker’s Hormone Pellets, & Love For Margaret Josephs

Like carbon monoxide, Danielle Staub is the silent killer of this season’s Real Housewives Of New Jersey. She might not be a full time Housewife, and she might not be screaming in anyone’s face (yet), but she is certainly here to play. In her blog, Danielle addresses each of her cast mates, sharing her reaction to their behavior thus far on the series, and specifically who might be lying – cough, cough, Dolores Catania.

First, Danielle praises Teresa Giudice’s connection with her family, especially with her dad in the wake of his mourning. “It’s sweet seeing the connection you and your dad have. You are so good with him, Teresa. Honestly, it’s heartbreaking to hear his pain. Although you are heartbroken as well, you remain so empathetic to your dad while going through your own emotions. I personally think you’re doing an amazing job!”

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: A Retreat To Remember

We knew it would happen. Siggy Flicker threatened to test out her “empowerment and healing” techniques on innocent victims friends and family before she unleashed it on the paying public – and she did just that to The Real Housewives Of New Jersey this week. It was, as expected, a splendid sh*t show. And maybe I’m a glutton for punishment, but I’ll openly admit I loved every messy minute of it!

I still can’t help thinking this season’s cast has stepped it up a notch. Maybe it’s been Siggy losing her effing mind (which, though bizarre and troubling, has been strangely entertaining!), or perhaps it’s the reintroduction of wild card Danielle Staub, who Dolores Catania sees as a snake in the grass. In any case, we’re lucky that cameras finally stepped back from the heaviness of Teresa Giuidice’s family drama this week, instead entrapping gathering the women together for a forced getaway – always a solid gold Housewives move. Even though the trip is to Siggy’s retreat, at least Margaret Josephs is there to provide comic relief! Plus, Melissa Gorga brought three Hail Mary’s in her pocket just in case Satan caused confusion.

No one has adjust so easily to becoming a Real Housewife the way Margaret Josephs has on Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Right off the bat she was talking about “pot puss,” getting with her husband Joe Benigno while she was married to someone else, and she opens up more and more with each episode. So of course she has a lot of colorful things to say in response to each episode.

Danielle Staub Was Initially Jealous Of Margaret Josephs Becoming A Full Time Cast Member; Says Her Kids Have “PTSD” From Her First Two Seasons On RHONJ

 As much as I hoped it would happen, I never actually thought I would see the day when Danielle Staub is back as a cast member on Real Housewives of New Jersey. What a time to be alive. If anyone was meant to be a reality TV star, it was Danielle Staub.

That’s why it’s so upsetting (and unjust) that Danielle was not asked to be a full-time cast member for her big return to RHONJ. She is at every group event. She knows how to stir the pot. Danielle is doing the most and getting the least. What is going on?
