Teresa Giudice shaded Margaret Josephs on a recent episode of her podcast after her co-host, Melissa Pfeister, mentioned that Lisa Rinna had exited The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after seeming “problematic” and “fighting with everybody” on the series’ 12th season.

Before revealing plans to move out of her home state once her youngest daughter, Audriana Giudice, 13, goes to college and reacting to Caroline Manzo‘s addition to the fourth season of Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star slammed Margaret for trying to hurt families with her “dirty” behavior.

“The way you describe Lisa Rinna, it sounds just like Margaret on our show,” Teresa noted on the January 11 episode of Namaste B$tches. “I’ve never seen somebody so messy and so involved and so toxic. She’s behind a lot of the stuff that’s going on in our show. And I just hope the truth does come out.”

According to Teresa, she recently heard Margaret and her husband, Joe Benigno, throwing shade at Luis Ruelas (the couple questioned what Luis does for work last month).

“It’s like, ‘Are you serious? You need to get a life.’ She’s very messy, very dirty, like trying to hurt people’s families, like what she did to [Jennifer Aydin] and [Bill Aydin],” Teresa explained, giving a nod to Margaret’s season 12 reveal of Bill’s affair.

During another recent episode, Teresa confirmed plans to move to the West Coast of Florida.

“I told Luis, four more years. I’m counting down four more years till Audriana goes to college. I need to either be in California or Florida,” she revealed on the January 18 episode.

As for Caroline’s addition to RHUGT season four, which also includes Brandi GlanvilleCamille GrammerVicki GunvalsonGretchen Rossi, Eva Marcille, Phaedra Parks, and Alex McCord, Teresa said that while she believes the experience will “be good for her,” she can’t see her fitting in with anyone aside from Vicki.

“She doesn’t really show too much. You have to be covered there so I think that’s a good thing. [But] I just don’t get it,” she admitted. “I didn’t see her fitting in but let’s see how it goes. The only one I could see her kinda getting along with is Vicki… Everyone else, I don’t feel they would vibe. I could see, if anything, [Dina Manzo], of course, more so than Caroline, or even [Jacqueline Laurita]. I just can’t see Caroline.”

Also during the episode, Teresa was asked if Dina would do RHUGT — even after skipping her August 2022 wedding to avoid cameras.

“That’s totally different because… I guess that would be a job, you know,” she suspected.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 premieres on Tuesday, February 7, at 9/8c on Bravo.
