A lot of the drama and fighting has been revolved around Siggy Flicker on this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but during a recent appearance on Juicy Scoop, Siggy revealed what went on that we did’t see that caused her reaction, why Jacqueline Laurita got fired and more.
Siggy started off the podcast by giving her nemesis Margaret Josephs a compliment. “I think Margaret is a fabulous Housewife.” Siggy said, then telling her side of what has happened. “I don’t have a problem with her being a Housewife. What I have a problem with is that you don’t know me. You coming right out of the gate taking jabs at me.”
“I didn’t really know the extent of what she does,” Siggy explained. “Now that she’s been taking jabs at my expertise, I don’t have one lawsuit. This woman is engulfed in lawsuits because she copies other people’s ideas and claims them as her own.”
On the show you might be led to think Siggy’s attacks are unprovoked, but she has a different side of the story. “Margaret comes over to me and all of a sudden you see my shimmying. All the middle parts- this is what I’m pissed off about this season- there’s a story board: ‘This season we are going to portray Siggy as crazy,'” she said. “‘We’re just going to show her reacting, but we’re not going to show what she’s reacting to.’”
Next, Siggy commented about what happened at the Gorga’s restaurant opening. “When we were sitting down, Joe Gorga came down and asked us what happened in Boca. Dolores [Catania] and I were describing it. Margaret and Danielle [Staub] walked over and what you didn’t see was back and forth,” Siggy explained, adding her version of what happened to the story. “‘You’re not going to cry again because you have no uterus.’ Yeah really? Because you’re the ugliest woman in the world for making fun of me. Oh really? Some relationship expert you are. Oh really? Cheap shit that you steal from other people made in China. Oh really? Just like your implants. Bitch, I don’t have implants. I had them removed after my hysterectomy.'” She added, “There are things that happened that have been taken out that I’m letting you know right now.”
“At the end of the day, I’m going to fight because I want the truth to come out,” Siggy continued. “I’ve never attacked anybody in my life. Ever.” Then she went after Margaret: “For twenty five years I’ve done nothing but helping people and building people up. Google her name and see how many lawsuits and how many people have come after her. I’m sorry. I wouldn’t be talking about this if I wasn’t on the defense.”
She continued, “It is unfair what has been done to me. There’s a thing called karma. There’s a thing called God. I believe in God and I believe in karma. When karma comes knocking on certain doors, I’m going to be happy.”
Heather McDonald asked Siggy, “Was it hard when Jacqueline didn’t return?” Flicker admitted, “Yes. I can say this without anyone taking it the wrong way. Jacqueline Laurita not being on the show is amazing for Jacqueline Laurita. This show is not easy. She’s the happiest she’s ever been. She’s with her husband, her children, and her grandchild. She’s such a different person because it’s so stressful.”
Siggy added that she is ready for this season to be over with. “December 20 couldn’t come fast enough, especially when you’re the target.” She added, “Everyone who knows Jacqueline knows she’s the sweetest person in the world.”
But Siggy had nothing to say about Teresa Giudice at all. “There’s a reason why Teresa Giudice is the number one Housewife in history. They waited for her to come home from jail to film Real Housewives of New Jersey because that’s how magical of a Housewife she is. That’s how I feel.”
Siggy also explained why she has been so active on social media this year. “I have a right to defend who I am and my character, especially when there’s a false narrative. On December 20, you will no longer see me on social media. Until the war is over, I’m going to fight every single day.”
Siggy said, “Why shouldn’t I use social media to explain myself? If you were on Housewives, would you leave your character, your life, to the hands of an editing department?”
She admitted, “All I wish is that you would see the stuff that has not been put in. Somebody takes a jab at my relationship expertise and my career and I know their career has lots of holes in it, and you don’t think I’m going to respond. So when I respond about your cheap stuff being made in China and everything like that, people are like ‘how did you get from zero to one hundred?’”
In conclusion, Siggy mentioned that the hormone pellets have really helped her. “For the last seven months, I haven’t had a single hot flash. My sex drive is back. I’m not crying as much. I’m back to being Siggy,” she said.
What are your thoughts about what Siggy had to say?
