Margaret Josephs Won’t Apologize to Jennifer Aydin Even After Seeing What Joe Benigno Really Said at Guys’ Night
What happens at Guys’ Night does not actually stay at Guys’ Night, as we learned this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The RHONJ husbands’ hangout sesh earlier in Season 11 sparked some major drama during the couples’ trip to the Jersey Shore when Teresa Giudice mentioned what Jennifer Aydin had told her about some comments Margaret Josephs‘ husband, Joe Benigno, had made during the get-together. The conflict continued for Margaret and Jennifer the next day, who had one of their biggest arguments ever during lunch.
But now that Margaret has been able to watch this season of RHONJ, including what her husband said at Guys’ Night, does she feel like she owes Jennifer an apology? "No. No, I don’t," Margaret said during her appearance on the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen After Show on April 7 (clip above). "Because she did it purposely to think that she was validating Teresa’s behavior."
Margaret continued to explain why she still believed Jennifer was in the wrong that night. "Jackie [Goldschneider] had already been through the wringer, why weren’t we just letting this die? It was Guys’ Night. What was the benefit of her telling Teresa? And she told it wrong," she said. "So, it was just to validate Teresa’s behavior to be a kiss-ass. I don’t owe her an apology. She actually owes us an apology."
Jennifer said that she still thinks Margaret’s anger was misdirected that night. "She went so crazy on me, and I was like, ‘The f–k did I do? I didn’t say it; your husband said it. Why don’t you turn around and get mad at him?’" she said during The Real Housewives of New Jersey After Show. "And she yelled at me in front of everybody. I felt so horrible that I was the reason that Joe was doing this. But, honestly, he should know his wife by now."
And since Teresa was the one who actually brought it up at the Jersey Shore, Jennifer suggested that Margaret should instead take it up with her. "Like, a conversation that I had with my girlfriend in the car ride over here has nothing to do with you. But if she brought it up, if my girlfriend brought it up, i.e. Teresa, then your beef is with Teresa — or your husband, who is the initial person who said it in the first place. But not with me," Jennifer added in the RHONJ After Show. "How did I get involved? She blew up at me!"
