It looks like things get Caber-nasty on tonight’s The Real Housewives Of New Jersey. After a quick demise of their unsurprisingly tumultuous friendship, Margaret Josephs reaches her breaking point with Danielle Staub and takes her shot at creating an iconic housewives moment…she throws a glass of RED wine at the Jersey original! By the sounds of it, Margaret has no regrets and leaves Mexico feeling like a true champ.
When Margaret and Danielle first met it seemed like a long lasting friendship had been formed. They both buddied up with Teresa Giudice and Danielle even made Margaret a bridesmaid in her wedding. Things quickly went south for the two friends after Danielle repeatedly insulted Margaret and was a borderline abusive bridezilla leading up to the wedding. Not everyone can find this behavior as charming as Danielle’s new husband (and even newer ex-husband ironically) Marty Caffrey. Well, when Danielle brings Margaret’s children into the fold, the “powerhouse in pigtails” finally snaps and throws a glass of red wine at the OG of NJ. Marge talked with Entertainment Tonight and it seems like the two aren’t going to be making friendship bracelets any time soon.
“I didn’t even want to engage with Danielle, but she was pushing, pushing. She was telling me what a bad mother I am, ‘Your children don’t want to be around you.’ People don’t realize I have more than two children. I have endless children. She knows that I’m around my kids. So, to make up lies and make it out like I’m a horrible mother … I was like, ‘You know what? You need to cool off. You’re just being an a**. You’re saying something purposely to hurt me. I’m gonna have to put you in your place.’ It was such an artful way, ‘cause, you know, I don’t drink alcohol, so I had to take Dolores [Catania’s] drink. I had to take her red wine and it just went across the table so effortlessly and Teresa [Giudice] was wearing white and I didn’t even get it on her, it only got on Danielle. It was just so artfully done. I was so proud of myself at the end of it.”
Apparently this was just a grape-filled domino that ended up knocking over every other Jersey girl in it’s path.
“[Danielle] tried to break a glass on my head! I just, like, leave. I go up this big marble staircase with my flowing dress. [Danielle’s] like a lobster in a pot, arms flailing. Security comes, the glasses start breaking, screaming. It was insane. Cause, you know, a glass breaks, Melissa’s like, ‘Who broke the glass? Who broke the glass?’ She’s like, ‘Jennifer [Aydin], did you throw a glass and almost cut me?’ And Jennifer cracks a glass and says to Melissa, ‘You know, if I broke a glass… you know, if I was gonna cut you…’ Like what is that about? That was, like, a threat…Melissa’s like, ‘Oh no! You didn’t do that to me!’”
Honestly, kudos to Margaret for keeping her cool this long! The whole ordeal beckons back to the early days of table flipping and reminds me of why we all fell in love with the reality series in the first place. I can only hope that an iconic catchphrase will coincide with the wine toss in tonight’s episode…although “prostitution whore” will always be tough to beat.
