Margaret Josephs Leopard Print

At this point I think a shady backstory and financial problems are pre-requisites to be on Real Housewives Of New Jersey, so no wonder Margaret Josephs makes such a great Housewife!

Margaret lives in a $1.125 million dollar mansion with her contractor husband Joseph Benigno – but maybe not for long, because on December 15, 2017, Unity Bank filed a notice of foreclosure against the couple. 

It turns out that Marge Jr and her husband also own the property next door to their still unfinished home. They purchased the house they are living in plus the neighboring home in September and December of 2016. Records from the Bergen County Courthouse reveal the bank is seeking to “recover possession of both of the said premises,” reports Page Six.

In addition to the foreclosure matter, Margaret is also in a legal mess over allegedly copying designs used in her Macbeth Collection. Vineyard Vines sought action against Margaret for trademark infringement and the court found Margaret guilty. She was ordered to pay $300,000 in damages. To date, Margaret has only paid $190,000, so the company has taken her back to court, now seeking a $9.4 million dollar judgement.

It’s safe to say that Margaret will be returning next season, so I wonder if we’ll see any of this play out on RHONJ? Maybe Margaret and Melissa Gorga could coordinate court dates and make a girl’s day out of it?!

Jaqueline Laurita, Danielle Staub, and Teresa Giudice have all dealt with foreclosure issues. And Melissa has had her own beavertastic mess.
