Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub became great friends throughout season eight of RHONJ, and now the two are opening up about all the drama that happened this season in a new interview.
During an appearance on Grants Rants Hollywood Talk Margaret first shut down rumors that her house is in foreclosure.
“I had a very bad lawsuit which did come out on the show and they were attaching a lien onto my house,” The Marge admitted. “So that’s really what was coming out. So we are clearing out that lawsuit. It’s not in foreclosure. I’ll still be living here and everything else. Business lawsuits are very common. Copyright infringement is extremely common in our business and by her [Siggy] saying ‘She’s a thief,’ it’s nothing remotely like that. You can look up any reputable company and they’ve had numerous lawsuits.”
Meanwhile, Danielle flashed back to season two, which was not good for her. “I said goodbye at the reunion with all those long, awkward hugs. You don’t hug someone that long unless you’re looking at them like ‘please leave me the fuck alone. let go of me.’ I kept looking at Jacqueline and I hugged her again and I whispered in her ear and that’s what that was about. It was awkward for me too, but I was begging her, ‘Get rid of all this stuff you’re doing on Twitter and having your family do to me. Stop torturing my kids.’ That didn’t work so well, but look who’s here now, bitch.”
Staub also had some thoughts about season nine’s potential cast. “Because Teresa [Giudice] has repeated it so many times, it would be nice for she and I to be able to team up and bring one of our mutual nemeses back, which would probably be Caroline– who I must remind everybody is the same age as me. And you know Jacqueline with her four chins are invited as well.” Danielle added, “I think Melissa [Gorga] has problems with them as well.”
While Danielle is ready for a Manzo/Laurita return, Margaret had something else to say. “I think we could use someone fun, new, and spunky. We don’t need to recycle anybody. We need someone to come in and fit in organically.”
IMO, Caroline and Jacqueline returning would make for the best television for viewers. If we’re going to go there, let’s go there and get it all hashed out. Isn’t that what we all secretly want? What do you think?
