Brandi Glanville Has a Bone to Pick With Margaret Josephs

RHONJ star Margaret Josephs was a recent guest on Brandi Glanville’s podcast and before the interview started, Marge had no idea Brandi had a problem with her.

Before Brandi called Margaret out, they made small talk about the reunion that was recently taped. “We just wrapped the reunion. It was very epic need I say more,” Josephs told Glanville. “It wasn’t as intense as I thought it would be. People asked me about it on Twitter and I said “piece of cake” because I think I was so revved up to go to it and then I said to Teresa [Giudice], ‘That was not so bad.’”

Then, Brandi aired her grievances with Marge. There’s something that you say that really hits close to home and really hurts me.” She continued, “When you’re on national television you talking about missing your kids it’s almost like you’re taking ownership of another woman’s children. I feel like it really pissed me off because all you would have to say is, ‘I miss my step kids.’”

This really caught Margaret off guard. “Brandi, I raise them. Do you know that the mother never had custody of the kids?” Brandi fired back, “But, they’re still biologically her children.”

“I understand why you feel that way.” Brandi explained, “Because it happened to me.” Marge insisted, “It was a whole different situation altogether. She really didn’t want to see them. She was not like you as a devoted mother.”

Margaret continued, “I didn’t want to call them my step kids because they were so ingrained in my soul. I wasn’t trying to take anything away from her. I was the one at their college and high school graduations. I did everything with them and we never banned her from seeing them.”

Josephs added, “I was the only one in the picture. Their mom wasn’t in the picture with them growing up.” Brandi asked, “She’s in the picture now though?” Margaret said, “No, not really.” Brandi finally said, “Well, OK then I guess I can give you a pass.”

AllThingsRH

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

  • Amanda Bates Barnette

    Stop giving Brandi any kind of publicity. She’s just trash with a drinking problem to me.

    • Starr

      Well said.

    • queenmother8

      exactly!!

    Margaret….you keep on loving those children, having a stable loving home is more important than any bio attachment. Brandi has a bug up her A$$ about LeeAnn Rimes being involved in raising her children and she is so insecure its disgusting. I agree with Amanda let’s stop giving Brandi ANY attention she is a sad soul who hates her life and cannot interact with others in a mature way. She needs some serious therapy to get over this “MY CHILDREN, no one else can love them” and move on.

    • pasteeler

      Would some one who “loved” her stepkids so much, cheat with the help knowing good and well she would be putting her relationship with them in danger. Did she think about their feelings at all? If not then Marge have no idea what real love is.

      • TNjezebel

        They were grown and out of the house. And just because she no longer loved their dad doesn’t mean she didn’t love them.

        • pasteeler

          Please marge’s horny tail was in lust and in that moment she cared only about scratching her sexual itch, not those kids or their feelings. This is not love its selfish lusts.

          • justanothermary

            Then this is true about all parents who have affairs. All they care about is their sexual itch, not their kids. Every parent who cheats could face the same consequences. Does this somehow only work when the parent is a “step”?

            • pasteeler

              It is true with biological parents as well. Getting caught in the act with the help in the couple’s own home is disrespectful and irresponsible. I wouldn’t blame my own kids for disowning me if I did it. They owe Marge nothing. If the dad would have done it, the same rules apply.

              Too many folks, yes parents and stepparents as well, say they love but really have no idea what love is or how to properly show real love.

              Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
              Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
              1 Corinthians 13:4-8

        • Starr

          True.

    • Starr

      Agreed!!

  • UnrealHousewife57

    I understand why Brandi feels the ways she does. Step-mothers need to stay in their lane. That blonde country has-been used Brandi’s own children to torture her. However, as Margaret said, her step-kids’ gestational carrier had no role in the kids’ lives. I believe Margaret is more entitled to feel the way she does, however, you can’t blame those kids for protecting their own father. They’re never going to choose Margaret over him after what she did to him.

    • Shawn Dudley-Mcclure

      So I guess step parents shpuld also keep their wallets in their lane also.

      • UnrealHousewife57

        Sure.

    • justanothermary

      What lane exactly is it that I’m supposed to stay in? I really need to know because for the past 35 years I’ve devoted myself to 4 children who are not biologically mine but who were abandoned by their mother. I love their father and he was a package deal. Now you tell me, and every other step-parent out there, what their limits are, I’d really like to know. And, by the way, there was a time in our marriage where their father was very wrong and all of those kids chose to stay with me. Biology is not everything. I’m also adopted. Do my parents have a lane? I am sick and tired of people spouting off about their “own” parent as if the rest of us don’t count. If you are not a step parent or you have never loved a child that is not biologically related to you, are you “less than”? The arrogance of people who are not in this situation makes me sick.

      • UnrealHousewife57

        I was speaking about Brandi’s situation. You need to cool down. This is not about you. This is also not about adopted kids. When the biological mother/father is around, the step-mother/father needs to know their boundaries. If I ever found out my kids were disciplined by their step-mother there would be hell to pay. This is not about love, this is about knowing your place in the grand scheme of things. Any step who thinks they have the same rights as an involved parent needs to be clued in.

        • justanothermary

          There are plenty of cases where the step may very well be the best parent for those children. Biology does not make someone a good, or bad, parent.

          • UnrealHousewife57

            Neither does being a step. And in the case we’re talking about, the has-been country singer used and still uses Brandi’s children as her pawns in her sick little game.

            • justanothermary

              We don’t really know that. She uses instagram and such but is that so terrible? Brandi is wretched and we only hear her side of the story.

              • UnrealHousewife57

                There is no side. The Step mother slept with a married man while his wife was carrying his child. The step mother refers to someone else’s children as “my boys”. I’ve heard plenty on both sides of this story. Going after someone else’s spouse is never okay.

                • justanothermary

                  I often refer to my step sons as “my boys”. I don’t see the problem with that. Also, I thought it was Sheana who slept with Brandi’s husband while Brandi was pregnant. If it was LeeAnn, did she know Brandi was pregnant? What did Eddy say about his marriage? Eddy could have lied about everything, we don’t know.

                  • UnrealHousewife57

                    It’s a small town. She knew. If she didn’t she could have found out in two minutes. Brandi is better off without him, for sure, but just do some googling and find out how Leann has caused nothing but trouble. Why doesn’t she have her own kids or adopt if she wants to be a mother so badly? She deliberately tries to hurt Brandi by using Brandi’s children on social media.

                    You wouldn’t be referring to my children as “my anything”. Not on my watch. You don’t see a problem with it but it’s not your call.

                    • justanothermary

                      The only opinion that matters, at least in my case, is that of my boys. If they had a problem with it they would let me know. There is a way of looking at your children having step-parents in a positive light and having another good adult in their lives can greatly enhance it. You’re obviously very bitter, that’s too bad.

                    • UnrealHousewife57

                      You know nothing about me.

            • Better a has-been than a never was like Brandi.

  • pasteeler

    Marge cheated on their dad, and them by extension, with the help. Those kids rightly want nothing to do with the snake. Marge destroyed their relationship, she needs to respect their feelings and move on.

    • justanothermary

      Why is this different than a biological parent doing the same thing? There are some great step parents out there who are giving their all for children they did not birth and there are some lousy ones, same as biological parents. Why do bio parents get a pass when they cheat and steps do not?

      • pasteeler

        There is no difference. Any parents who disrespects their family and home should not be surprised if the kids decide they want nothing to do with them.

  • kt

    WHOA…let’s not lump all step-mothers together here folks!

  • EnigmaWrapped’nSnark

    Although they ended up calling a truce, it was indeed painful listening for the first 10 mins. In short, Brandi didn’t do her research, because when Margaet pointed out that the kids were already (16 and up) when they came into Margaret’s life, you could almost hear Brandi saying “Oh … oops … never mind.”. But I do think Brandi’s initial rage was justified, because the way LeAnne used to post pics and call BRANDI’S children “her boys” (especially on painful holidays Brandi was w/out her kids) was just so effed up.

  • Starr

    Here we go again with Brandi putting her foot in her mouth once again. And why is she still relevant!!

  • Dear Trash Box Barbie: NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK! YOU WERE FIRED!

  • HuckabeesWonkyEye

    oooohhh Brandi baby, bitterness is SO ugly on you. And let’s face it, you’re not much to look at anyway. The booze has not done you any favors. Have ONE redeeming quality please.

  • timdun

    On a different subject, I just read where Siggy quit the show and won’t be back next year.

  • DaysofWineandRoses

    Not a Brandi fan or follower of what she’s up to lately, so I don’t have much to contribute other than liking Marge’s up-do; it’s so much nicer than her pigtails..which should never be seen outside of a photo studio on a 12 hour work day, bless her heart.

  • RM

    Why is anyone having conversations with Brandi? She is a bitter, whack job who cannot get past the fact that her husband left her. Yes, it was horrible. Yes it was hurtful and crushing but for god’s sake turn the page. Stop letting it define you and stop letting your jealousy and anger get the best of you. You are the one that looks like the kook in the end. Rise above it!!!

  • Oh, gee, a pass from the W of Babylon. This is the 1st time I have seen the name for quite a while. I bet she couldn’t WAIT to have some connection to Bravo again. BG watches a show and believes she has the right to judge someone? That is exactly what her gripe was. Now the tables have turned and she jumps on the hate the step-mom bandwagon. Go have some Xanax with a many wine chaser, BG. We don’t miss you.
