Margaret Josephs claims ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ producers asked Teresa Giudice to move out of the cast’s vacation rental after the latter star’s Nashville outburst, which aired in this week’s episode .
“You see her leaving the house. You know, do you see her leaving the house? Do you remember that? I mean, let’s read between the lines,” Josephs, 55, said on the latest episode of the “Reality Life with Kate Casey” podcast. “Do you think it was his choice?” Not exactly.”
The Bravolebrity continued: “[Giudice’s] feeling is to intimidate, dominate and humiliate. That’s how she bites, but it doesn’t work with someone like me.
Josephs went on to say that she believed Giudice’s fiancé, Luis “Louie” Ruelas, was “upset” by his future wife’s behavior in Music City. The ‘New Jersey’ OG threw dishes at Josephs after accusing the designer of the Macbeth collection of leaking information about Ruelas, 46, to ‘bloggers’.
“Everyone was in shock. It was like blind rage on his part. I think [Louie] didn’t even know what to say or do. I don’t think he ever saw that side of her. It was, you know, it was chaos,” she said, adding elsewhere, “I think it really upset him, I think it upset him.
Over several episodes, Giudice, 49, tried to pin the negative press about Ruelas on Josephs, a claim Josephs vehemently denied.
Page Six exclusively reported in April 2021 that Ruelas’ ex-fiancée Vanessa Reiser filed a lawsuit against him when their relationship ended in 2020, alleging he would get angry if they didn’t. didn’t have sex on his schedule. The lawsuit was eventually settled out of court on undisclosed terms.
That same month, a police report obtained by Page Six revealed that Ruelas had been charged with common assault following a road rage incident in August 2018.
“Every time we have a major discussion something comes out and then who brings it out?” Giudice shouted out on this week’s installment of “RHONJ.” “Miss Margaret yes!”
Josephs then calmly called Giudice a “sick, disgusting liar”, which infuriated the infamous tabletop pinball machine, prompting her to throw plates, utensils and full cocktails at her on-screen nemesis.
Later, Giudice threatened to “beat the fuckin’ shit” out of Josephs, who she also called a “bitch” and a “c—t.”
When the cast – also including Jennifer Aydin, Jackie Goldschneider, Dolores Catania and Melissa Gorga – finally returned to their rental home, Giudice and Ruelas left in their pajamas, giving viewers the idea that the couple left on their own terms. .
“That’s not what happened,” Josephs told host Kate Casey.
Bravo did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
