Most former Housewives do not admit that they still keep up with the Real Housewives show. I don’t know if it’s because they have bruised egos and don’t want to admit that they watch or because they really don’t watch the franchise anymore, but Brandi Glanville is not one of those alums. She is a very avid Housewives viewer and she has a lot of opinions about everything and everyone on every show. One person that she took major issue with was the New Jersey new girl Margaret Josephs.
For the most part, the audience is really warming up to Margaret (minus the initial shock from the pigtails), and I just figured that Brandi would be one of those fans who loves her since they both take pride in their unfiltered humor. Unfortunately, part of Margaret’s story line struck a very personal cord with Brandi. Nope, Brandi does not have a desire to run a lifestyle brand or rehash childhood nicknames or claim a friendship with Joan Rivers. This is actually a LeAnn Rimes-related issue.
We are in the middle of Hanukkah and just a week away from Christmas. This means that all of our favorite reality stars are attending holiday events, rocking holiday outfits, and spending lots of time with their families. It also means that they’ve shared a lot of photos- just in time for the weekly Instagram Roundup.
The war between Siggy Flicker and her ego everyone else on The Real Housewives of New Jersey has reached a boiling point. And Margaret Josephs, once again, finds herself on the receiving end of Siggy’s latest barbs – this time about being anti-Semitic. Thus, the drama that has gone well beyond cake-throwing, heading now into straight up character assassination (and, dare we say, defamation?) territory.
Margaret visited The Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM Stars this week to dish on the latest drama between Siggy and her. Asked to briefly describe this season of RHONJ, Margaret says, “Good, bad, ugly, epic, and – amazing!” When asked who she’s pissed off so far this season, Margaret does not mince words: “Soggy and Dolores.” Yup. That just about sums it up!
This season, Teresa claimed Kim D spread rumors that she is “reigniting old flames” while her husband is locked away in prison. Kim stirred up so much shit made such a major impact that she was invited to argue with Teresa to share her side of the story at the Season 8 reunion.
Siggy called out Margaret Josephs for referencing Hitler and accused her of being anti-Semitic. Danielle Staub felt excluded from the scene argument and dismissed so she threw a glass in the middle of her screaming match with Siggy. Worst of all, it looks like they left before anyone got to eat food at that Italian restaurant.
Our apologies, Italy. Please don’t judge us based on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey visiting your fair country! As the ladies storm into Milan, breaking glasses and acting like a$$es, Danielle Staub finally goes, well…Danielle Staub on everyone. Having no more stale cake to metaphorically drag around, Siggy Flicker decides it’s time to up the ante by calling out Margaret Josephs on her Hitler remarks. Dolores Catania tries to ride the very sharp fence of loyalty to Teresa Giudice and Siggy, while Melissa Gorga pretends to be an entrepreneur as she scours the fashion houses of Milan for feather boas and plunging necklines. Envy needs some sh*t on its shelves, after all.
After packing montages where everyone discusses what an epic disaster the trip is bound to be, we cut to the ladies landing in Italy in one piece. Marge is just glad no one has breathed a word about the Posche fashion show, but Melissa thinks it’s nuts that no one’s discussing the elephant – or in Kim DePaola’s case, the leathery lizard – in the room. In the van on the way to their hotel, Dolores asks what the agenda is? Ladies, it’s time to channel your inner Beyonce and get in Formation! The teams shall be: Siggy/Dolores, Margaret/Melissa, and Teresa/Danielle. It will be a six-women-enter-five-women-leave situation, a la Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. (Except set in a swag hotel rather than a dusty mosh pit.)
“There was everything from bullying my children behind the scenes – remember, there were eleven of the Lauritas and all of them had children as well,” says Danielle, whose girls were “terrified” of the backlash they received at school. Caroline, who was originally a Laurita (along with sister Dina Manzo and brother Chris Laurita), was likely the ringleader of the harassment, according to Danielle.
