Margaret Josephs appeared on Andy Cohen‘s late-night talk show, “Watch What Happens Live,” on Wednesday night, April 7, where she was questioned by a fan about whether or not she felt she owed Jennifer Aydin an apology after learning her husband, Joe Benigno, had claimed to have heard a rumor about Jackie Goldschneider‘s husband, Evan Goldschneider, during a guys night with the men of the show, as Aydin suggested.
“No, I don’t because she did it purposefully to think that she was validating [Teresa Giudice]’s behavior,” Josephs told the fan.
Margaret Josephs Wanted The Rumor To Die
“Jackie had already been through the ringer. Why weren’t we just letting this die?” Josephs wondered.
As fans of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” will recall, Giudice spread a rumor about Goldschneider’s husband potentially cheating on her at his gym during the premiere episode of the show and weeks later, Aydin attempted to solidify her claim of having heard the false report around town by revealing Benigno had told her husband, Bill Aydin, that he, too, had heard the report.
Jennifer Aydin Misrepresented What Had Happened
Although Benigno did hear the rumor, he didn’t hear it around town. Instead, as Josephs revealed, he heard it in their home.
“It was guys night and what was the benefit of her telling Teresa? And she told it wrong. He never said ‘in town.’ He said he heard it in our house. So it was just to validate Teresa’s behavior, to be a kiss-a**. I don’t owe her an apology. She actually owes us an apology,” Josephs said of Aydin.
Margaret Josephs And Joe Benigno Got Over The Gossiping Quickly
When another caller asked Josephs how she and Benigno dealt with the fight they got into in regard to her engaging in the gossip, Josephs admitted that they didn’t have as hard of a time as some might assume.
“It was fine. I kissed him that night. When you’re a married couple and he knows I’m a strong woman, it’s not a big deal. People argue. I hold everyone accountable when I’m pissed off and then I get over it. To us, it wasn’t a big deal,” she confirmed.

“I was shocked bemuses people have fights all the time. I hold people accountable, even my husband,” Josephs stated. “I say what I feel in the moment and then I move on from it. What was my husband going to do? I was having a fit. It takes a strong man to be with a strong woman.”
