Margaret Josephs Suffered “Whiplash” After Real Housewives Costar Pulled Her Ponytail

It’s no secret that there is no love lost between Real Housewives of New Jersey co-stars Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub. After dealing with Danielle’s bridezilla tantrums last season, Margaret decided that she had enough.

At a legendary dinner in Cabo, Margaret tossed a glass of wine at Danielle after Danielle brought up Margaret’s stepchildren. Then chaos erupted at the table with glass and insults flying. Thankfully, the table appeared to be bolted down, and flip-proof. (I’m looking at you Teresa Giudice!) During the RHONJ Season 9 finale, when Danielle’s then-husband Marty Caffrey insulted Margaret, Margaret and her husband Joe Benigno, “helped” Marty take a refreshing swim in Jennifer Aydin’s pool.

In a trailer for Season 10 of RHONJ, Margaret said, “These women would hold a bloody knife, stab you in the back and say they didn’t do it. I don’t trust anyone.” Then viewers see someone’s hand yanking Margaret’s ponytail hard.

In an interview with HollywoodLife, Margaret and Dolores Catania broke down how Margaret’s ponytail was pulled so hard that Margaret experienced whiplash. “We see my ‘unbeweavable’ ponytail pull right in the trailer. I had it a little rough this year,” Margaret remarked on the HollywoodLife Podcast. Dolores said, “You got assaulted.” So, who attacked Margaret’s ponytail? Someone who preferred her pig-tailed look from earlier seasons?

“We all know all our friend group, so I’m sure you guys could assume who it is, though I’m not going to say. But, it was a sneak attack from behind–The worst kind,” Margaret explained. “I mean I’ve got whiplash, I’m going to leave it at that. I definitely got a whiplash from it. No bleeding, thank God. But definitely a whiplash.”

Margaret credited Dolores for helping Margaret “clean up the mess” after the attack. Dolores had her back turned during the assault, so she isn’t the culprit. “I know she would have jumped in. I know she would have jumped in to save me,” Margaret stated. Dolores responded, “Yes, of course I would have.” It looks as though tension is high between Margaret and Danielle during the trailer, so it is obvious probably Danielle who pulled Margaret’s hair.

Margaret felt like she has dealt with drama since she joined RHONJ during Season 8. Margaret said, “I don’t think anything really gets me down. I’ve been trashed, I was called an anti-semi, homewrecker, this and that. But, I think if you believe in yourself and you’re confident in your being and stand by what you believe in and are authentic, you can survive anything,” Margaret added.

One former Jersey Housewife has her finger pointed at Danielle as Margaret’s attacker, and I will leave it up to your imagination which finger it is. Remember that crazy fight at the country club in Season 2, when Teresa chased Danielle through the building? Then Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter Ashlee Holmes pulled on Danielle’s extensions? Danielle promptly started legal action against Ashlee. Oh, and Danielle also brought a mannequin head, complete with hair extensions, to the Season 2 reunion so she could re-create the traumatic event.

So, this scenario is giving Jacqueline serious deja-vu, and she took to Twitter to share her thoughts. “It’s interesting to me that Danielle Slob prosecuted my 18 year old daughter for pulling her weave when she, as an ADULT, ripped out @MargaretJosephs hair in a tantrum. God I hope Margaret brings a mannequin head to the reunion to demonstrate the attack and sues her ass. #RHONJ,” she tweeted.

Time will tell who pulled Margaret’s hair, but the good news is that Margaret, like her hair, survived the sneak attack.
