Kicked to the curb in Nashville? On the last episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, we saw “table flip 2.0.” The ongoing feud between Teresa Giudice and Margaret Josephs came to a head on the cast trip in Nashville. While the entire cast has been gossiping about Tre’s man, Luis “Louie” Ruelas‘ questionable past, Marge is the only one bringing it up. Causing her to be the focus of all of Teresa’s fury.
While out to dinner, Teresa picked a fight with Marge to ultimately accuse her of leaking stories about Louie to bloggers. Tre yelled during the episode, “Every time we do have a major talk, something comes out and then who brings it out? Miss Margaret does!” Marge fought back and called her a “sick, disgusting liar.” In turn, Tre went into a rage, throwing tableware, plates and a full cocktail on Marge. Teresa had to be dragged out, all while yelling obscenities and threatening to “beat the f—king crap” out of Marge.
Teresa was ultimately dragged away back to the cast house, where she and Louie got changed into pajamas and claimed they were going to a hotel. Not so, says Marge. As reported by Page Six, Margaret made a recent appearance on the podcast Reality Life with Kate Casey to clear things up. Marge revealed, “You do see her leaving the house. You know, do you see her leaving the house? Do you remember that? I mean, let’s read between the lines.” She asked, “Do you think that was her choice? No. Exactly.”
Marge went on, “[Teresa’s] feeling is to intimidate, dominate and humiliate. That’s the way she bites, but that doesn’t work with someone like me.” She also believes that Louie was “upset” by Teresa’s behavior. Said Margaret, “Everybody was in shock. It was like blind rage on her part. I think [Louie] didn’t even know what to say or do. I don’t think he ever saw that side of her. It was, you know, it was mayhem,” she said, adding elsewhere, “I think it upset him truthfully, I think it upset him.”
Marge has denied the claims that she’s leaking stories. And obviously there are stories out there. The whole cast (and fans) were aware of the second Tre went public with Louie. In 2021, Louie’s ex-fiance filed legal action against him for alleged emotional abuse. The lawsuit was settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. On the show, Louie chalked up any negative stories about him to scorned women who wanted flout. But those weren’t Louie’s only legal troubles. He was charged with simple assault following a road rage incident in 2018. More recently, his company has filed for bankruptcy and he has been sued for over $100k by a former vendor.
