Margaret Josephs And Her Family Had Coronavirus; Husband Joe Benigno Hospitalized

It’s been a little under a year since Season 10 of Real Housewives of New Jersey wrapped their final reunion episode. When we left the women, there were talks about the now infamous pony-tail pull between Danielle Staub and Margaret Josephs. The incident sent ripples through the group, and essentially left a huge question mark for Marge and Teresa Giudice’s friendship.

The show reportedly began filming in July. The entire cast was said to be returning. In the meantime, Danielle kept the crazy coming with her accusations against Andy Cohen of all people. She also accused her long-time friend Teresa of living in a trailer during RHONJ filming. I’m guessing that means The Marge and Tre have buried their hatchet? Tre has never been great at keeping a middle ground. And the powerhouse in pigtails still isn’t over Danielle’s chaos, going so far as to call her a “virus”.

The upcoming season of RHONJ is likely going to include the women’s lives in quarantine. Much like our various other franchises. Recently, Marge took to Instagram to share her own experience with the virus! That’s right. She is newly recovered after testing positive for the Coronavirus.

Marge shared a video of herself telling fans and followers the info a few days ago. Her caption read, “the Covid’s out of the bag… we’ve been MIA of late because we’ve all been sick … finally now negative and back together!” Maybe she really is back to being friends with maskless Tre

The caption continued, “This is real! Wishing you all a happy healthy new year.” 

In the video Margaret shares that she and her crew have been MIA because literally everyone in the family caught the virus. That includes Marge Sr and Marlene the housekeeper! Then, Marge’s husband, Joe Benigno, pops his head in to say he had such severe symptoms he was hospitalized!

As of now, the Josephs and Benigno home is testing negative for COVID. Everyone is home and well. They asked all their followers to wear masks and referred to their experience as a “shitty COVID journey.” From the sounds of the video, everyone was sick for the holidays. Bummer.
