When the ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey sat down for the Season 9 reunion earlier this month, the drama escalated quickly. And, insiders say that things were so tense between Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub that the two “went at it” during filming.
An insider says that “it was a lot of Margaret and Danielle fighting over how Danielle treated Margaret,” but Josephs also butted heads with Jennifer Aydin “for being pretentious in Oklahoma.”

Teresa Giudice also had some arguments during the reunion with her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and also with newbie Jackie Goldschneider. The source says that Giudice and Goldschneider didn’t “come to a resolution,” and they “fought for a long time.” And, Teresa was “tense and mad” during the majority of filming.
According to All About TRH, the fighting between Joseph and Staub started as soon as the ladies walked onto the set, and Gorga was mad and complaining that she had been downgraded and didn’t get to sit next to host Andy Cohen.
Staub’s estranged husband Marty Caffrey didn’t make it to the reunion, thanks to the two restraining orders that she has against him. But, even if he would have landed an invitation, Caffrey says he wouldn’t have shown up.

“I’m pretty confident it would go well for me if they discussed me. There’s nothing in the way I handled myself throughout filming that would make me think otherwise,” Caffrey told Us Weekly.
In a recent episode of the RHONJ After Show, fans saw a clip of Staub telling Giudice that Josephs told her never to trust anyone, and she specifically mentioned Giudice and Gorga.
“I don’t think she’s a loyal friend at all, I think she talks s–t about people and that’s her m.o.,” Danielle told Teresa. “She told me a dozen times not to trust you, or Melissa, she said it to me several times, Teresa’s not your real friend. She told me don’t trust ‘em.”
But Josephs claims that Staub isn’t telling the story right, and her exact words were “you can’t trust anyone” and didn’t mention names. Josephs says she was giving Staub this advice because she talked too much and constantly saying crazy things.

Dolores Catania chimed in and defended Margaret Josephs and said that Danielle Staub has a habit of exaggerating, and Giudice agreed.
