Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub reportedly “went at it” during The Real Housewives of New Jersey season nine reunion as a new report is also revealing Melissa Gorga threw a fit over her seating arrangement.
Nearly two weeks after the special’s taping, a source is revealing new details about what went down between Margaret, Danielle, and the rest of the ladies during what has been described as the “most aggressive” reunion yet.
“It was a lot of Margaret and Danielle fighting over how Danielle treated Margaret,” a source explained to Us Weekly magazine on January 18.
“Jackie and Teresa did not come to a resolution. They fought for a long time,” the insider added.
The ladies also discussed an old photo of Jackie at one of Teresa’s book signings that recently surfaced on social media, and throughout the taping, Teresa was said to be “so tense and mad.”
As for the rest of the cast, Melissa Gorga was reportedly throwing a fit before production began after learning she would not be seated next to host Andy Cohen, despite being the longest-running cast member, aside from Teresa.
“She got downgraded this reunion because she’s usually next to Andy. She was vocally complaining,” a second source revealed.
Instead of Melissa, it was Margaret who was seated next to Andy.
Although there was plenty of drama at the reunion, the Us Weekly source confirmed there were no real tears and no one stormed off the stage before production wrapped.
While Danielle’s estranged husband, Marty Caffrey, was likely discussed during the season nine reunion, he wasn’t present for the taping.
As fans will recall, Danielle and Marty got married during season nine in The Bahamas and tons of footage from the event was featured on the show. Then, just four short months after the couple tied the knot, he filed for divorce and she accused him of “verbally and emotionally” abusing her and her daughters, which he denied.
“He turned it on me. He needs to lash out. He’s not a well man. He’s really not a well man and I did everything that he wanted me to do to try to end this peacefully,” Danielle previously told the magazine.
When asked for a comment about becoming a potentially hot topic during the reunion taping, Marty said, “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.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season nine airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
