After wrapping filming on the upcoming 12th season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Margaret appeared on a podcast, where she confirmed she and Teresa are estranged and revealed that the new episodes would feature “some cheating scandals.”
After calling into the November 16 episode of Discretion Advised, Margaret was asked if she knew which of her RHONJ castmates received book reviews that suggested their “food tasted like frozen dinners” and that “you can get better Italian food at Pizza Hut.”
But her suspicion was incorrect. Instead, as the host revealed, it was Teresa’s 2011 cookbook, Fabulicious!: Teresa’s Italian Family Cookbook, that received the bad reviews.
“Really? I thought Caroline’s said that! Teresa had quite a few cookbooks but I didn’t think her reviews said that, wow, I’m going to stick that to her,” Margaret shared.
At that point, Margaret was asked if her comment alluded to the fact that she was on speaking terms with Teresa.
“No. I’m not on speaking terms with her,” Margaret explained. “I thought Caroline’s was… Caroline’s a great cook but I thought someone told me it had a bad review.”
When Margaret was then asked if there were going to be any “sexual stories” on the upcoming episodes of season 12, Margaret denied that any storylines would be based around sex, but she acknowledged that “some cheating scandals” would be addressed when the series returns.
“I wouldn’t say sex scandals, I’d say some cheating scandals and some people having a lot of sex but no scandal, I don’t know if that’s scandals,” Margaret said.
“We have a great season. Great season,” she added.
While last season’s cheating scandal surrounded the marriage of Jackie Goldschneider and Evan Goldschneider, whose relationship remained completely intact despite the false rumors, season 12 will reportedly include a supposed scandal between Jennifer Aydin and her husband, Bill Aydin.
As for Margaret’s feud with Teresa, an insider told All About the Real Housewives in September that Teresa was “disgusted and disappointed” with Margaret after she allegedly brought up negative reports about her fiancé, Luis Ruelas.
“Teresa is absolutely done with Margaret. They will never be friends again ever. She thinks that Margaret is no good and believes that fans will be on her side once they see what she did,” the source stated. “Teresa knows that her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga is close with Margaret but hopes Melissa had her back this season.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 12 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime in early 2022.
