Dolores Confronts Margaret Over "Horrible" Comments About Paulie: "Very Wrong"

Go inside Dolores Catania and Margaret Josephs' heated conversation about Jackie Goldschneider's claims.

By Allison Crist

Dolores Catania and Jackie Goldschneider's conversation at the Gorgas’ limoncello-themed housewarming party took a turn for the worse when it was revealed that the latter Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member had called the former a "slob" in a text sent to Margaret Josephs. This ultimately caused Jackie to call out Margaret for saying "horrendous” things about Dolores and her boyfriendPaulie Connell — and now, in a preview for RHONJ Season 14, Episode 10, Margaret's addressing Jackie's claims. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

The topic arrises in the above sneak peek after Dolores tells Margaret she seems "consume[d]" by "petty bullsh-t." 

Marge doesn't disagree, and instead points to "the whole Jackie thing."

"I'm gonna be honest, it did throw me for a loop a little," she continues. "And then when she goes over to you, one of my closest friends, to sh-t talk..."

Here's What You May Have Missed on Bravo:

Dolores then interjects to note, "She said you said horrible things about me and Paul," to which Margaret replies, "I have never — and this I could take to the grave and swear on my kids — never said a bad word about you."

That said, she was "upset" with Dolores "the night of New York," aka the evening of the RHONJ Season 13 reunion taping, because once filming wrapped, Dolores opted to go to dinner with Teresa Giudice and Luis "Louie" Ruelas (who Margaret majorly clashed with at the reunion). 

"I was so devastated," Margaret recalls. "I was like, 'The only reason Dolores is going is because of f-cking Paulie. He loves them.' And of course, do I feel like he prefers them over me? Yes."

"That's very wrong," Dolores says. "Not that he liked them more, but you separated from us. You stopped calling. Paul stopped one day and he goes, 'Call Margaret right now.' I called you and it went to voicemail like it did so many times before that.'" 

A split of Margaret Josephs and Dolores Catania talking.

Margaret offers up an explanation, but not to Dolores — instead, she says in a confessional interview, "After New York, we didn't speak for a few weeks. I had to take a step back and take a break from her." 

To find out how Margaret and Dolores' conversation ends, tune into RHONJ Season 14, Episode 10 on Sunday, July 14.
