Marge Sr. has become one of the most lovable characters on this Real Housewives of New Jersey season and she’s not even a Real Housewife. Margaret Josephs‘ mom steals the spotlight in every scene she is in and I find myself wanting to know more about her. She needs to be a Housewife next season. We’ve already had sisters and sisters in law on this show, so why not a mother and daughter? Marge Sr. is the most hilarious person on this show. It needs to happen.
Unfortunately I have zero pull at Bravo, but at least we all got to see Marge Sr. out on that double date with Margaret, Margaret’s husband Joe Benigno, and the accountant Steve. So did that work out? Is Marge Sr. playing the field? Is Margaret going to have a new step father? Inquiring minds want to know.
In an interview with Bravo’s The Daily Dish podcast, Margaret shared, “Marge Sr. loves being on the show. She loves the show.” And everyone loves watching her!
It’s not all good though. Margaret revealed, “She feels bad for me. She’s like ‘Oh my god, Margaret. That’s horrible. I’m gonna kill her.’ She gets so upset and I’m like ‘Mom, don’t worry about it. Who cares?'”
Marge Jr. continued, “Marge Sr. feels bad for me. She gets heartbroken if she sees anyone do something mean to me or whatever else, but you know what, we’re tough girls. We’re from good European stock. We’ve been through this. Marge Sr. rode over the border on a bicycle to escape Europe. This is nothing for us.” I would love to hear some more details on that riding a bike across the border story that Margaret just casually sprinkled in the middle of that answer.
Margaret was asked if her mom was “getting any more action since she’s been on the show.” Margaret said, “Yeah. I think Marge Sr. gets a lot of attention. I’m TMI Marge and she’s a TMI Marge too. I don’t want to know everything that’s going on, but she definitely gets a lot of action.” Good for her. Awkward, for Margaret, but great for Marge Sr.
So what’s the deal with Marge Sr. and Steve? Margaret revealed, “She and Steve, I think, have been on other dates. They’ve always had a flirtation. He’s coming for the Christmas holiday.”
Edited to add: no new RHONJ episode tonight! The show returns on January 3rd!
