Margaret Josephs hinted at where she stands with Teresa Giudice and Luis Ruelas, revealed if she has hope for Teresa’s relationship with Gorgas, and denied saying she was “afraid” to film with Luis.

On the latest Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, Margaret challenged Luis over allegations he hired a private investigation to find info on the cast. Their drama led to intense arguing, which seemed to permanently sever Margaret and Teresa’s once-friendship.

Speaking to Extra, Margaret hinted at where her relationship stands with Teresa.

“I think the reunion said it all,” she said, seeming to indicate that nothing has changed. “I’ll leave it at that.”

She then denied a report saying she was scared to film with Luis.

“I never said I was afraid to film with him. I’m not afraid to film with anybody. I think my position on the show has shown that I don’t live in fear, I just have standards.”

Concerning where Teresa stands with her brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa, Margaret echoed her previous sentiment, “I think the reunion said it all. I think the reunion said where everybody stands … You know what? I always hold that hope for families reuniting, but I don’t think there’s any hope.”

She eventually addressed the upcoming season. “I think I go into every season the same: just be authentically myself,” she explained. “These women are my friends — most of them I would say are my friends. I really do love them. And you know, hopefully most of us could get past things and just move it forward. That’s what it’s about, it’s about a group of friends, opinionated women, and having a good time.”

At one point, Margaret agreed with Bravo alum Bethenny Frankel’s recent assertion that cast members should get paid residuals.

“She’s not wrong,” declared Margaret. “We worked very hard, we work very hard, and I think time will tell on what happens. Everybody works hard in the industry. And you know what? The crews work very hard as well.”
