‘Thirsty Phony Bitch’ #RHONJ Newbie Margaret Josephs’ Shady Strategy To Use Costars For Social Media Following Exposed! (Exclusive)

Posted on Oct 11 2017 - 12:55pm by BeachSpin

Real Housewives of New Jersey fans got their first glimpse of cast addition, Margaret Josephs, on last Wednesday’s premiere — but where will she land, as Season 9 takes shape? 

A source close to the cast is spilling the tea behind Margaret’s rookie strategy — and is claiming that it’s all about the money. 

It only took one episode for Margaret to cozy up to the stars of the show — Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. Margaret is already beginning to turn on the one who scored her the gig —Siggy Flicker — and sidestep her way toward the Jersey felon and her sister sidekick.

According to our insider, Margaret allegedly covets the duo’s social media followers.

Margaret was kissing up to Teresa and Melissa from day one,” spills the source. “It’s all about the money.”

Teresa and Melissa have a combined Instagram following of 2.4 million, and a Twitter following of over 2 million. Margaret, a self proclaimed entrepreneur and designer, makes bank selling a mishmash of products online — and supposedly wants to tap into her co-stars’ large followings. Margaret’s unverified Instagram account has 4500 followers.

Margaret equates Teresa and Melissa’s social media following to dollar signs,” dishes the source. “She’s a thirsty, phony bitch.”

Margaret has already disclosed that her tawdry romance with an on-the-clock contractor ended her first marriage — but has yet to mention the multiple lawsuits that have plagued her “global lifestyle” brand. “MacBeth Collection” has been sued multiple times — busted for violating trademark/copyright law.

The brand has been called out for logo lifting, swiping a patented design, and for allegedly having a knocked-off product manufactured in Chinese sweatshops. In December 2015, Margaret was ordered to pay $497, 880.14, after being sued by I World LLC.

Margaret touts the “fake it til you make it” way of life — and it looks like her philosophy has spilled onto the Bravo stage.

Do you think that her shady strategy will pay off?

Check out the reality rookie on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET, on Bravo.

  • RHONJ Fan

    Margaret that likes weed on her pussy just does not fit in with this crowd. She’s the odd man out and appears to be thirsty.

    • motherall

      Tre is already in trouble and being watched I’m sure. She should get really close with this loser and be her friend in prison.

      • Trippinhhard

        LMAO they can be pen pals or yoga partners..

    • colleen

      She said “Weed”? I thought she said a spray or something…

    • Marsbars09

      RH, who isn’t thirsty on these shows?

  • colleen

    Didnt take Margaret long to stab Siggy, her sponser, in the back

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      I kind of agree, but she merely told Siggy to take it down a few notches (when she went nutty coo coo about the stupid cake) … a little out of line yes, but was it really enough to send Siggy into such a rage?

      • wellWellwell

        Ziggy loves camera time almost as much as she loves to hear herself tawk and tawk and tawk.. ugh!

        • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

          I wouldn’t F with that one … she seems like she’s go Drita and/or Rene (Mob Wives) on their asses in a heartbeat.

          • wellWellwell

            If you mean Ziggy, I agree. She is very unstable, the highs and lows, the crying and yelling, the rambling.. She’s almost like Jill (NY) know-it-all-about-nothing.

          • we”r”family

            Soggy is the neediest person on the show. She proclaims herself to be a matchmaker, peacemaker, etc. She is anything but.

      • we”r”family

        I think Siggy is more upset that Margaret has cozied up the likes of Teresa, Melissa, and Danielle.

        • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

          I think Siggy is just trying to step up her game after being ripped apart all last season for being too dull. Same with Deloris.

    • ShouldaCouldaWoulda

      Kind of hard not to when someone who invited you is screaming fuck you in her face. I am not a big Margaret fan but she won me over a bit when she stayed calm in the storm. Siggy was out of control and it isn’t a good look.

  • Marsbars09

    And the sky is blue…
    What else is new? It’s common knowledge new “wIves” use these shows for some kind of come up.

  • Evil Queen

    Logical that she would come onto the show to promote her Macbeth Collection.

    • ShouldaCouldaWoulda

      Don’t they all have something to promote? That is the name of the game and how they are willing to subject themselves to the brutal BravoTV agenda. Sure the “fame” part is attractive, but they also see how it goes down and I think they need more than that 5 minutes of fame to encourage them to be on these shows. They are all economically driven, and the paycheck doesn’t cover it so product endorsement is the name of the money game here.

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    You can tell from that picture that this trick is probably in her 60’s.

    • Sandy Wood

      The hair is a little Trump(ish).

      • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

        It’s not yellow enough:-)

        • chacha1

          or orangy enough LOL

    • Bryan

      Suzanne Sommers with those pig tails

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark
    • LeLu23

      Hatchetface from John Water’s “Cry Baby” starring Johnny Depp! Lol

    • chacha1

      that hag that wore the tutu’s when she was part owner of Envy …. I thought that was her

  • the underground train

    Dam! Who did Margaret piss off on the AATT staff?

    • we”r”family

      apparently Siggy is furious with her!

    • Sandy Wood

      LOL, they must have rooted around in the archives to find that photo. Put a bag on the hag!

      • chacha1

        you nailed it GF “put a bag on the hag” have you talked to AATT about hiring you to write about the shows?

        • Sandy Wood

          You flatter me chacha, but oh hell no! Will turn 80 next week, full time business to run and my role as the family “helicopter” keep me busy enough. I love just sitting back and enjoying the brilliant recaps and comments by my friends here.

          • chacha1

            80 Next Week !!! well here are big hugs from Chicago to my very best cyber friend ..Happy Birthday early sweet pea !!

          • Sandy Wood

            Thank you chacha, that means so much to me. It’s a privilege to be counted as one of chacha’s chill friends. (((hugs back atcha)))

    • ShouldaCouldaWoulda

      LOL. True that. I thought the same thing myself… she ruffled some AATT staff feathers!

  • GirlPlz

    When HWs on these show say “I have a multi-million business”, I don’t believe them

    • we”r”family

      Who does lol.

  • JustSayin

    “She’s a thirsty, phony bitch” — then she should fit right in with the rest of these fake bitches. The felon who faked having money to get on the show, the sister-in-law who is faking like she’s all good with the felon to keep her spot, etc etc…

  • toolate2care2000

    Do I think her shady strategy will pay off? Well it seems to have worKed quite well for our president!

  • chacha1

    Go away Maggie … I am not interested in you at all !!!

  • chacha1

    I just don’t like that name Siggy, it aggravates me !!

  • as seen on TV

    i’m really liking Margaret so far !!

  • Kathy Panarella

    Please that was so evident but treda & Melissa are just as thirsty so they went for it neither are very bright Margret & tresa have things in common both are frauds
