Teresa Giudice on Margaret Josephs: "I Can't Wait for the World to See What a Liar She Is"

Margaret Josephs has made it quite clear she wants nothing to do with Teresa Giudice.

How to Watch

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

The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member addressed the yearslong feud during a recent appearance on Access Hollywood’s Housewives Nightcap, claiming Teresa was not the woman she met many years ago. 

“She means nothing in my life. She really means nothing in my life,” Margaret said. “She was humble, sweet, and kind. The person she is today, I would never want to know.”

The Jersey ’Wives were introduced back in Season 8 (2017) when Margaret made her official Bravo debut. Although the pair quickly developed a promising friendship, their bond weakened in Season 10 as they began questioning each other’s loyalty. Margaret and Teresa addressed their issues in the Season 13 premiere (2023) after the former brought up damaging rumors about Teresa’s now-husband, Luis “Louie” Ruelas.

“We were close but there was a side of you last year that was just so hurtful and cutting and hurtful. I was like, ‘Who is this?’” Margaret told Teresa in the February 7, 2023, episode.

“It was week after week, me hearing something negative about [Louie] and it was coming from you,” Teresa fired back before Margaret claimed she was simply concerned. “I don’t give a shit. It’s, like, leave me alone. You’re hurting our family… I thought you were my friend.”

As seen in the RHONJ Season 14 premiere, the Jersey moms are still at odds and have chosen to keep their distance. While the situation is unfortunate, Margaret suggested she had no interest in repairing the friendship. 

“What I’m hearing is, the girls are telling me that [Teresa] was obsessing over me, that she was gonna drop some bomb,” she told Housewives Nightcap. “I mean, she’s so obsessed with me. I could care less about her. Truthfully, I don’t care about her life. I don’t care about her and Louie… She’s a non-entity. She’s someone I would never want to know. I really do feel that way now. She is not the person I met, and maybe this was the real her all along.”

Although a reconciliation seems unlikely, Jersey fans know that anything is possible. Previous besties can turn into sworn enemies, while long-time foes can become close friends. Margaret touched on the twists and turns during her Access Hollywood sitdown and teased what was to come in Season 14. 

“I think you’re gonna get a lot of surprises, unpredictable moments,” she said. “People are gonna have jaw-dropping, shocking things come out… People are really gonna freak out. I think it’s a great season and very different.”

Teresa Giudice addresses RHONJ drama: "I'm done"

Teresa made similar comments during her May 7 appearance on The Talk, claiming Season 14 would include a "very eye-opening" moment. Although she didn't provide details on what was in store, Teresa suggested she would present "facts" that vindicated her and Louie.

“I’m done defending this season,” Teresa said about the drama between her and her castmates. “I can’t wait for everyone to see this season because I come out with facts — black and white facts that I can’t wait for everyone to see. And it’s going to be very eye-opening.”
