It’s not really old school The Real Housewives of New Jersey fight until Teresa Giudice takes him there. In the currently airing season 12, the formerly incarcerated reality star was at odds with her once close friend Margaret Josephs. Simply put, Giudice doesn’t like it when someone asks her boyfriend (/now fiancé) Louie Ruelas about his intentions or his past. The drama has escalated further on the show lately, and Josephs revealed that looking back on it is obviously “worse” than living through it.
On the April 19 episode, things got really heated in Nashville, where the band is vacationing. Of course, it was over Louie Ruelas. Again. This ultimately culminated in Teresa Giudice throwing a drink at Margaret Josephs and nearly knocking over another table during the confrontation. As Marge tells it, she wouldn’t know the full extent of her co-star’s fury until recently. the The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum told Us Weekly:
Teresa Giudice has clashed with several cast members this season about her new man. First, his sister-in-law Melissa Gorga hinted that there were backstage arguments in their family group chat. (Supposedly, some sort of gag is in place regarding the subject matter of Louie Ruelas’ story, which would include domestic violence.) RHONJ vet, and Johnson to this day doesn’t understand how her husband bringing up something guys night is reason enough to be mad at her.
Now, drama is knocking on Margaret Josephs’ door for the umpteenth time, as she has apparently broken Teresa Giudice’s “love bubble.” And to be honest, it’s just as heartbreaking as a viewer to see the demise of what was once quite a quirky/fun friendship. Josephs told the outlet that she never thought things would get violent New Jersey again saying:
Margaret Josephs shared that she gave her teammate “too many assists”. She also added that the The Real Housewives of New Jersey The crew just filmed the Season 12 reunion special with Andy Cohen, and Teresa Giudice had “no remorse” for what happened between them. This apparently includes Giudice’s comments about Josephs in the heat of the moment, which were seen as body shaming. Josephs recalled that it was “demeaning,” as well as not being in the best shape, given that the show goes deeper into Jackie Goldschneider’s eating disorder this season.
For her part, Teresa Giudice only publicly stated following this season that her friendship with Margaret Josephs may not survive in the long term. And sadly, Josephs also seems to agree. Tune in to the Nashville drama that picks up where the fight cliffhanger left off in the next episode of The The Real Housewives of New Jerseyairs April 26 at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo as part of the 2022 TV schedule.
