This Is Why Margaret Josephs Sleeps with a Full Face of Makeup

Margaret Explains Sleeping in Her Full Face of Makeup

It's one thing to show up for a hatchet-throwing session with lashes on. (That's just how East Coast ladies do it.) But, The Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers can't seem to wrap their minds around that one time they saw Margaret Josephs wake up wearing a full face of makeup. So when the "powerhouse in pigtails" stopped by Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on November 14, Andy asked her to explain: What's up with the early-morning glam?

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 premiere May 5th at 8/9c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

In the clip above, Andy read a befuddled viewer's question aloud: "Why did Margaret wake up with a full face of makeup last week?" This is not the first time Margaret has heard this question. "OK; I wrote so many tweets back about that," she said. And indeed, she did. Here's just one:

Nevertheless, Margaret was prepared to defend herself again when the heat was on in the Clubhouse. "I'm a lazy bitch, all right, hands down, I'll go home tonight, Andy, and I'll wake up like this tomorrow morning." She used her darkly manicured hand to pan over her beauty look, which had a smoky, sultry eye that doesn't exactly scream time to make the coffee. But wait, there's more: 

"I don't want to take off my makeup at night. I go home, I get in the bed, [my husband] Joe and I wake up, he wants to bang this in the morning. He doesn't want me to wake up without my makeup, my eyelashes. I get up in the morning, I look like this." #Flawless. 

Watch the clip above to hear Margaret tell it, and to see Joe turn into a human shrug emoji from the audience.
