Why Did Margaret Josephs Throw Red Wine on Danielle Staub?

Margaret Josephs has now joined an illustrious club in the world of The Real Housewives. The fashion designer is the latest Housewife to throw a glass of wine, as we saw during Wednesday night's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

But if for some reason you missed this now-iconic Real Housewives moment, here's a quick recap of what led up to drinks flying during the RHONJ crew's trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The tension between Margaret and her onetime BFF Danielle Staub came to a head at dinner when, amid their already-fractured relationship, Danielle brought up Margaret's estranged relationship with her children.

That is, of course, a very sensitive topic for Margaret. So Margaret grabbed Dolores Catania's glass of red wine and sent it in Danielle's direction, faster than you could say, "Powerhouse in Pigtails." This caused absolute chaos among the Garden State gals, and we'll just have to wait and see how it all ends in the next episode of RHONJ Wednesday at 9/8c.

Margaret opened up more about the incident on Wednesday night's episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, revealing what about the night really pushed her over the edge, which you can view, above. "Well, she really, it goes below the belt," Margaret explained. "She talks about my children, my family. She needed to cool off, seriously."

It wasn't just what Danielle said that upset Margaret so much; it was also why she said it in the first place, she explained during The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 After Show, which you can check out, below. "She's lucky that's all I did, throw a glass of wine at her," Margaret said. "It's not that she brought up my kids don't talk to me; she was saying vicious, hurtful things. For what? What does that have to do with her? That was not the context of the argument. That has nothing to do with why we don't get along. That's the only thing she could say to me? What does that have to do with our relationship?"

So, does Margaret have any regrets about her actions? "I'd do it again, 10 times over," she said.

That answers that question.

The drama between Margaret and Danielle has been mounting all season. Their spouses have even gotten into it. Watch Margaret's reaction to Danielle's then-husband Marty Caffrey's comments to her husband, Joe Benigno, below.
