Margaret Josephs Responds to Jennifer Aydin Saying She’s a “Master Manipulator”

The RHONJ cast member also revealed if she regretted saying that Jennifer looked “disheveled.”

Margaret Josephs and Jennifer Aydin have rarely been on the same page since the latter ’Wife joined the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey in the ninth season, and their feud is back on in full force on Season 13 thanks to a phone call.

How to Watch

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

Jennifer Aydin called Margaret’s best friend, Jennifer Fessler, to discuss her troubled “history” with Margaret, and the ladies got into a heated disagreement on the March 7 episode. According to Melissa Gorga, the argument left the rest of the ladies feeling “shook.”

Later in the episode, Jennifer Aydin, Teresa Giudice, Rachel Fuda, and Danielle Cabral caught up at a birthday party for the latter cast member’s daughter, Valentina. Jennifer Aydin called Margaret a “master manipulator” in her friendships and said that Margaret “tries to get everybody on her team.”

Though Margaret wasn’t at the birthday party, she sounded off on Jennifer’s comments when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen after the episode aired.

“I don’t manipulate my friends,” Margaret said. “I mean, listen, if that’s the case, then I should be running the entire country, [because] I’m pretty amazing.”

She also didn’t regret making a comment about Jennifer’s appearance during their argument.

“I don’t apologize for calling her disheveled,” Margaret added.

Margaret isn’t the only person Jennifer is arguing with on Season 13. Following a tense exchange at the Season 12 reunion, Jennifer and Dolores Catania hurled insults at each other at the husbands’ calendar photo shoot on the February 7 premiere.

Though Dolores said that Jennifer was “not defendable,” and Jennifer responded by saying that the mom of two looked like an “old f--king handbag,” the cast members are now back on good terms.
