Siggy Flicker Quits 'Real Housewives Of New Jersey' After Racist Remarks

Following a drama filled season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey , Siggy Flicker has officially had enough. Radar Online reports that the RHONJ star decided to quit the show after her epic feud with Margaret Josephs, who made controversial comments about Hitler this season.

An inside source claims that Flicker was tired of fighting with Josephs and simply wanted out. She apparently negotiated a deal with Bravo to let her out of her contract a year early and did not need the extra money. It is not clear how big of a pay cut she took in the deal. Apart from her feud with Josephs, Flicker was unhappy with how producers were portraying her this season. By the time the reunion was a wrap, Flicker decided she had enough and didn’t want her reputation ruined any further.

Flicker’s ongoing battle with Josephs started from day one. While filming for episodes in Boca Raton, Flicker blasted Josephs for stirring up drama. The women later got into a huge fight over Hitler and the Holocaust. As fans will recall, Flicker’s father survived the Holocaust, so one can imagine how she felt when Josephs told her, “Hitler would have not killed me. Does that make him a good person?” But Flicker’s resentment towards Josephs didn’t end there.
While Flicker was unhappy with Josephs’ Hitler remark, she felt personally attacked when her RHONJ co-star targeted her daughter during the cast vacation to Italy.

Flicker firmly believes that children are off limits on the show and was further enraged when producers decided to cut Josephs’ comments from the show. At the end of the day, Flicker felt as though producers were giving her a bad rap, even though it was Joseph who was making all the controversial comments. The insider claims that Flicker is completely done with the show and has zero interest in ever coming back.

According to People , Flicker has since released a statement confirming her departure after two seasons on the RHONJ . While Flicker had it rough with Josephs, she thanked Bravo in her statement for allowing her the opportunity to be a part of the hit franchise. She also wished all her co-stars the best, including Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, her longtime friend Teresa Giudice, Danielle Staub, and, yes, even Margaret Josephs. Flicker revealed that her decision to leave the series is based on her desire to grow her business, start new projects, and enjoy more time with her family. She did not reference her ongoing feud with Josephs or her unhappiness with Bravo’s editing team.

While Flicker and Josephs apologized to each other on the most recent episode of the RHONJ , the women have continued their fight on social media. Siggy Flicker may not have wanted to come out and say it, but she clearly has a poor opinion of Joseph and doesn’t want anything else to do with her.

Fans can watch the drama unfold when new episodes of the Real Housewives of New Jersey air Wednesday nights on Bravo.

    Good she left, she didnt belong with the rest of the crazy cast except Dolores. Who throws a beautiful guest thoughtfully created by the host - Trash people who didn't deserve but got million dollars. They have no class at all. It's nothing to do with being an elitist but about respecting another individual - it wasn't a $15 store bought cake which again should never be thrown coz there are people without food. If you'll don't wanna eat it, post cutting the cake donate it - some poor kids will enjoy it. It's absolutely disgusting to see the arrogant display of wealth from some of the housewives.

    I'm not really a fan of Siggy or of the Jersey hw anymore. Better to disassociate yourself with people who you feel bring you down. I'm sure there's other factors that played into her leaving..

    Siggy was probably fired and to save whatever is left of her dignity, Bravo let her say she quit Soggy’s true self came out this season, she’s controlling and she’s an elitist and thinks people should bow down to her. She’s got the worst qualities of all housewives combined and 1000 percent worse. . Someone said her name Siggy Flicker sounds like she flicks cigarettes...?

    Stop trying to make this about racism! Its offensive and just one woman's way to keep the spotlight she is obviously so desperate for she's gone crazy. One woman was trying to make a point after Siggy decided not to like her because others didn't! If saying the name Hitler is racist then they should start pulling every television show that is based on him and there are way too many! Calling this racist is actually offensive to what the meaning implies. The dispicable acts of those who don't like another for who and what they are. Exactly what Siggy did to the other! To call someone who has Jewish children this when she was only making an analogy is a grab for attention. Attention that was given to the other woman causing a constant temper tantantrum Dont make light of this issue because if you do then I seriously back.other cases may be blown off due to others calling everyone racist! I know that Siggy's father was a victim of the holocaust and I truly can not imagine the horror he faced. Siggy getting upset every time Hitler's name is mentioned, I'm sure it may make her think of what her father went through but lets face it, that madmans name is brought up in droves mostly by those who try to educate on how this atrocity happened so it doesn't happen again. I think Margaret was just pointing out that Hitler would have liked her but hated Siggy and is that the kind of behavior we want to exhibit? To hate someone just on the opinion of another? I don't watch this show often and don't care much about them but I will speak up for a subject as important as this. I'm also so tired of people who got a taste of a bit of fame and would actually go so far to try to destroy others to get it back.
