Margaret Josephs came bursting onto the scene in Season 8 of RHONJ and immediately started working her way to the top. 

More from Real Housewives of New Jersey

As everyone who tuned in for Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey has noticed, Margaret Josephs really is a “powerhouse in pigtails” as she likes to call herself. Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing for RHONJ fans is still undetermined.

What most did notice, whether you are team Margaret or not, is that even from the Season 8 premiere, Margaret has been working double time on solidifying her bond with Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. She’s also worked her way in tight with Danielle Staub.

Despite her quick trip to the top, Margaret maintains that she isn’t schmoozing her way to the inner circle. She claims that her chemistry with the RHONJ bigs is all natural and that she isn’t pretending to be their friends.

Nevermind the fact that Margaret Josephs was quick to take sides with Teresa and Melissa in Boca and trash talked Siggy Flicker for getting upset about the cake fight. Don’t forget that it was Margaret who told Siggy to bring it down a notch.

Even though Margaret keeps taking the opportunity to trash Siggy, like when she called her Soggy over and over, the new RHONJ cast member claims, “I have a whole lotta love to give and there’s enough to go around. Even for Siggy, despite her name-calling and wanting to pull my pigtails out…LOL!”

In her latest Bravo blog, Margaret Josephs insists that she’s ready to move on with Siggy and at least get along. Then she takes a shot at her and insists that Siggy should act a certain way because she is a relationship expert. The thing is, maybe she just doesn’t want a relationship with Margaret. After the Boca trip, Siggy saw what an opportunist Margaret was and she wanted none of it.

On the other hand, Siggy already blocked Margaret on Twitter. She’s moved on and apparently doesn’t really care where that leaves her on the RHONJ pecking order. I bet Siggy wishes she’d never brought Margaret in with this group!

Here’s one thing I’d love to see happen this season: I want to see Siggy Flicker actually drop all the drama with Margaret Josephs and give her a chance. And by chance, I mean a chance to show her true colors again.

Margaret claims she doesn’t hold grudges and she also claims that both her party invite and her apology to Siggy were sincere. .Then, in her party words, Margaret says, “I don’t hold grudges, I hold standards.”

Let’s just see if that’s true. Or let’s see if this sweet girl act is just that – an act. Also, Siggy isn’t the only one who can’t stand those pigtails.
