Margaret Josephs Dishes On Drama With Danielle Staub & Friendships With Dolores Catania & Dorinda Medley

Margaret Josephs instantly resonated with viewers during her first season on Real Housewives of New Jersey. The fans weren’t the only people that she won over. Margaret formed a very close friendship with Danielle Staub.

They really had each other’s backs, but that’s not the case these days. Margaret did what she could to be the bridesmaid and friend. She put up with Danielle’s bridezilla demands and came through on all of her requests. However, nothing was good enough for Danielle and her attitude just kept getting worse. Sadly enough, there was so much drama surrounding a wedding for a couple that broke up shortly after they got married.

Margaret dished on RHONJ Season 9 during a recent episode of the Everything Iconic With Danny Pellegrino podcast.

She admitted, “Danielle is hard to be close to.” Was it always like that? Or did their relationship just intensify once Danielle began wedding planning?

Margaret remarked, “Is there ever not drama with Danielle? Of course, there’s drama with the wedding.” Who could forget that kitchen scene where Danielle got overly offended when Margaret accepted an event invite from Dolores Catania?

Danielle actually had the nerve to say “What do you two really have in common? You cheated on your husband and she got cheated.” Margaret reflected, “This grown woman is having a meltdown. I’m not even going to react to this because I will not cave into insanity.” Good for her. Almost every viewer was #TeamMargaret watching that scene.

Margaret admitted, “I was taken aback by her reaction.” She maintained, “I don’t react to people who behave in that manner.”

Ironically enough, Margaret and Dolores became closer following Danielle’s kitchen freakout. Margaret shared, “I think Dolores and I always really liked each other. It’s just that she had a loyalty to her friend last year. There was a little wedge in between us. This year, we decided we are adult women with a lot of things in common. Let’s have a clean slate.” Will they join forces to shade Danielle?
Margaret might just have her hands full with Jennifer Aydin. We all saw them fighting in the Season 9 trailer. It hasn’t happened yet, but Jennifer didn’t exactly make the best first impression on Margaret. She was extremely rude and shady to Margaret’s friend Polly, the kind woman who hosted the entire cast in Oklahoma.

No one can blame Polly for watching the episode. Margaret shared that Polly “was like ‘Oh my god. I didn’t hear Jennifer say half that stuff.'” However, Margaret revealed, “She actually loved the episode.” Same. This season is just so much better than it has been in years.
Margaret teased, “This season so good.” She credits that to “the right mix of ladies.” Margaret claimed, “It’s not the same story over and over.” I don’t know about that. They’ve debated about the possibility of “controlling your husband” every single episode so far.
However, I believe Margaret when she said, “There are so many events that people are really going to love it.” That clip of Margaret pushing Danielle’s soon-to-be-ex-husband Marty Caffrey in the pool is already iconic.
