Season 13 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is currently being filmed, and it was reported that Margaret Josephs had a major feud with her longtime best friend Laura Marasca Jensen. Margaret is no stranger to confrontation and has been known for her snappy comebacks since she joined RHONJ in season 8. Margaret started a season-long feud with former housewife Siggy Flicker after calling her “Soggy Flicker” due to her constant crying. Margaret also engaged in a battle with Danielle Staub, which eventually led to a hair-pulling fight at a clothing store.
Margaret’s biggest feud to date, however, was with RHONJ OG Teresa Giudice. The former friends couldn’t see eye-to-eye on Teresa’s fiancé, Luis Ruelas. Margaret wanted Teresa to address all the rumors about him and clear things up for the public. However, Teresa wanted to keep mum about Luis and was infuriated that Margaret was meddling in her relationship. In an explosive RHONJ season 12 episode, Teresa accused Margaret of talking to a “blogger,” after which Margaret called her former friend a “disgusting liar.” Incensed, Teresa threw plates and glasses in Margaret’s direction, causing one of the biggest fights in RHONJ history since the table flip in season 1.
It seems as if Margaret is embroiled in yet another feud. As reported by Reality Blurb, Margaret slammed her childhood friend, Laura, as a “snake” after accusing her of meeting with Teresa and Jennifer Aydin in order to get cast on the show. In a leaked group text by Margaret, she wrote to her RHONJ castmates, “Happy Sunday everyone I am so sorry to write this but Laura Jensen who is on this group text and I have brought into our group has unfortunately attempted to insert herself in my employment and contacted and met with my cast mates Jennifer Aydin to [undermine] me.” Margaret went on to tell the group that if they “choose to associate with her” to not include her. She ended the text with, “I know this is very Housewives of me but we should all know when there is a snake in the group, I hope none of you revealed anything to this BEAST.”
Reality Blurb shared a screenshot of the Instagram account Deux Moi, which posted a text from an insider confirming that the feud was true. Reportedly, Laura had gone on a cast trip with the housewives to Dublin and sat on the plane alone. Margaret was allegedly upset about how Laura was being filmed and didn’t want to be around her former friend. Another insider claimed to have spoken to Laura, who revealed to have a lot of information about Margaret Josephs. The source alleges that Bravo producers have favored Margaret in the editing room and that she was the one who started the cheating rumor about Jackie Goldschneider’s husband, Evan Goldschneider.
Margaret confirmed to Deux Moi that she had sent the group text, and accused Laura of turning on her in order to get cast in RHONJ season 13. Margaret claimed she had nothing to hide and she had pushed for Laura to be on the show for two years. She explained that Bravo didn’t want her, so Laura tried to portray herself as Margaret’s enemy instead. With all the juicy drama happening during the filming of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, viewers can’t wait for season 13 to air.
