Margaret Josephs claims that the producers of The Real Housewives of New Jersey asked Teresa Giudice to leave the cast’s vacation rental after the latter star broke out in Nashville, which aired in this week’s episode.
“You 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,” Josephs, 55, said on the latest episode of the Reality Life with Kate Casey podcast. “Do you think that was her decision? Not exactly.”
The Bravolebrity continued: “[Giudice’s] Feeling is to intimidate, dominate and humiliate. That’s how she bites, but you can’t do that with someone like me.”
Josephs went on to say she believes Giudice’s fiancé, Luis “Louie” Ruelas, is “excited” by his future wife’s behavior in Music City. The “New Jersey” OG threw Joseph’s dishes after accusing the Macbeth Collection designer of leaking information about Ruelas, 46, to “blogger”.
“Everyone was shocked. 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’s ever seen that side of her. It was, you know, it was chaos,” she said, adding elsewhere, “I think it honestly upset him, I think it upset him.”
Over the course of several episodes, Giudice, 49, has attempted to frame Joseph’s negative press about Ruelas – but Josephs has vehemently denied claims that she is behind the headlines.
Page Six exclusively reported in April 2021 that Ruela’s ex-fiancé, Vanessa Reiser, filed legal action against him when their relationship ended in 2020, claiming he’d get angry if they didn’t have sex on his schedule. The lawsuit was eventually settled out of court on undisclosed terms.
That same month, a police report obtained by Page Six revealed that Ruelas was charged with minor assault following a traffic incident in August 2018.
“Every time we have a big conversation, something comes out, and then who brings it out?” Giudice yelled on this week’s episode of “RHONJ.” “Miss Margaret does it!”
Josephs then calmly called Giudice a “sick, disgusting liar,” which enraged the infamous pinball player, prompting her to throw plates, cutlery and full cocktails at her on-screen nemesis.
Giudice later threatened to “beat the friggin’ shit up” on Josephs, who she also branded “bitch” and “c—t.”
When the cast — including Jennifer Aydin, Jackie Goldschneider, Dolores Catania, and Melissa Gorga — finally returned to their rental home, Giudice and Ruelas left in their pajamas, giving viewers the impression the couple had left on their own terms.
“That didn’t happen,” Josephs told host Kate Casey.
Bravo did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
