Margaret Josephs Opens Up About Estranged Stepkids

RHONJ star Margaret Josephs confided in Dolores Catania during this week’s episode that she is estranged from her step kids. Josephs told Catania that two of her kids haven’t spoken to her in six years.

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Marge revealed why she decided that was the right time to open up about that part of her life.

“I opened up to Dolores because I felt bad. You know, she has an unconventional relationship. I wanted her to realize that I relate to her and Frank, and I’ve had unconventional relationships. And maybe she didn’t understand me that I always realize with my pain, I always make jokes, and things like that. But I’m very deep. I was always about my family, so I wanted to discuss with her where I come from and my kids and everything else.”

“We’re trying to work through it. I call them my children. I don’t even call them my stepkids. I’m obsessed with them. I love them. We’re just trying to work it out,” she said. “Families are tough.”

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.

    I haven’t liked Margaret at all. I felt she was very manipulative and played the group to find position like a high school mean girl. But I was very moved by her pain at her step kids and I so pray they reconcile. Life is so short.

    Why must we have to see her old flappy chest?

    MJ is 50?? I thought she was very elderly all this time. I really thought she was in her late 70’s.
