Margaret Josephs is very particular about her home decor, so when she found pieces she liked in Danielle Staub's home, she wasn't going to let her tumultuous history with The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum stop her from buying them.
In the above sneak peek of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 11 After Show (premiering March 10), Dolores Catania took a moment to compliment Margaret's couch. Then, Margaret went on to explain the outrageous story behind the piece of furniture. "This I got from Danielle's house," she said. "But I reupholstered it."
As it turns out, Dolores had a major role in getting Margaret the couch. "I sent Marge the pictures," Dolores explained. "Then I had to go back and say I was the one buying it. "
However, the couch wasn't the only thing that Margaret purchased from her former friend's home. "I always wanted these horse photos that were in her house,"" she said, before explaining, "Everything in the house was staged prior, so it wasn't [Danielle's] original style or taste."
"There were certain pieces I always coveted," she added. "You know I always love a bargain. Dolores was like, 'Marge! Look at this!' and I go 'Oh, they're not going to give it to me,' so I Venmo-ed Dolores, Dolores sends the money...I went over there, I get the horse photos, and then it's like the sofa was $300. I was like 'f--k it, I'm taking it.' [Joe Benigno] goes, 'What are you gonna do with this?' I go, 'I'm gonna reupholster it it's gonna look fabulous.'
She added: "I had to have it."
Last month, Margaret showed before and after photos of the sofa, writing, "I’m the princess of prints! My settee had a glow up."
