The feud between Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Margaret Josephs and Teresa Giudice exploded during the cast trip to Nashville. Teresa is firmly in her love bubble with fiancé Luis “Louie” Ruelas, and she isn’t going to let anyone penetrate it by asking questions. And if your past is as colorful as Louie’s is, there are going to be questions. Margaret has claimed that Louie is a “sex addict” with “a history of abuse.”
During that infamous fight in Nashville, Teresa accused Margaret of giving information about Louie to blogs. When Margaret called her co-star a liar, Teresa pushed plates of food and glasses across the table onto Margaret.
The next night, Teresa and Louie returned to the house for dinner. Teresa gave an apology to the group but explained that she was provoked. Margaret scoffed at the apology, and Teresa told her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, to get Margaret in line.
According to Reality Blurb! Margaret sounded off about Teresa’s apology and Teresa’s brother, Joe Gorga, on the RHONJ: After Show. “[Teresa] apologized to the group… blaming me, [saying], ‘When someone comes after [someone] she loves…’ That’s not an apology,” Margaret remarked. “That was a very poor excuse.” She continued, “I wasn’t coming after someone you love. I’m not coming after him. Everybody else in America’s coming after him. Not me.”
Jackie Goldschneider stated, “What she didn’t say was more telling than what she did say. I thought by apologizing to the group, she was telling Margaret, ‘You don’t deserve an apology from me.”
Even Teresa’s loyal friend Dolores Catania, who caught flack for staying with my Margaret after the incident instead of leaving with Teresa, wasn’t feeling the so-called apology. “The apology was hard for her and like, it was like, ‘Ugh, this isn’t gonna come out right, this isn’t going to work,’” Dolores commented. Duh.
Margaret would like for Teresa to “be better” and to learn to “own [her] mistakes.” And that is why Margaret has a bone to pick with Joe.
“And Joe Gorga was clapping for her. ‘Oh, thank you, Teresa.’ I was pissed off at him,” Margaret stated. “I was like, ‘Give me a f-cking break you enabler.’ That pissed me off.”

Joe said, “I mean, she put a lot of thought into it. She sat there all night, her and Luis, they sat there, they talked about it, they wrote it, they typed it all out, it was amazing.” Seriously? This is ridiculous. He added, “You gotta give it to her. She could’ve said, ‘F-ck you, I’m not doing anything.’” Joe dissed his sister for not having his back, yet he continues to back her up.
During her own segment of the RHONJ: After Show, Teresa lashed out again at Margaret. “I don’t give a sh-t what Margaret thinks. I think everybody at that table saw what Margaret did and I think everybody at that table understood why I did what I did,” Teresa stated. Guess again, Teresa. “Margaret… It’s like… What is your freaking problem? Get a life. Get a hobby.”
It is telling that since filming the RHONJ reunion, Margaret is not speaking with Teresa, and Melissa hasn’t spoken with Teresa, either. Maybe Teresa’s co-stars are sick of putting up with her out of control behavior.
