Season 13 of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” promises to be a season of highs and lows, according to one of the returning stars.
Margaret Josephs joined Evan Real and Danny Murphy of Page Six’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast this week, where she teased that the upcoming 13th season will be “comic and painful at the same time.” She said she thinks fans will love it and describes it as both “heavy” and “light”.
Several reports have indicated that three new women – Danielle Cabral, Rachel Fuda and Jenn Fessler – will be joining the cast, which has remained unchanged for several seasons. The podcast hosts asked Josephs about the change in dynamic with the new cast members and she said it felt very natural.
She confessed that she likes some newcomers more than others, but that everyone “naturally fits in”, making for a good transition for viewers. Josephs explained that she has known Fessler for a few years and they are good friends, which is her bond with the group. Fuda, on the other hand, was brought in when Gorga’s friend and Josephs shared that “she’s a doll” and very “adult”. [and] funny.”
However, in terms of Cabral, viewers can expect a bit of tension between the two women, as Josephs teased, “Danielle, I thought we started well, you guys will have to see what happens.” She then emphatically added, “I found her entertaining, you know, we’ll see how that goes.” According to Us Weekly, the series will premiere in early 2023.

During the same podcast appearance, Josephs was asked about a better place with Teresa Giudice after an intense feud in Season 12. As fans may know, Josephs was surprisingly invited to Giudice’s summer wedding to Luis “Louie” Ruelas.
The RHONJ star shared that viewers will see that progression in their relationship in Season 13, but teased that it was partly due to Giudice being more “open to hearing” Josephs’ point of view. “I know she gets frustrated with me,” she shared. “I don’t think she always agrees with everything I have to say, but I think she knows I’m coming from a good place.”
The entrepreneur then credited Ruelas with helping Giudice to that spot.
The feud between Melissa Gorga and Giudice made headlines last summer when the two clashed during filming, leading to Gorga and her husband Joe Gorga skipping Giudice’s wedding.
However, Josephs shared on Page Six’s Virtual Reali-Tea podcast that she thinks Jennifer Aydin is fanning the flames and is inside Giudice’s head.
The RHONJ star said she thinks the season will show that she “tried to be reasonable and reason with both sides,” meaning the Gorgas on one side and Giudice and Ruelas on the other to bring them all back. to get together. Josephs shared that she told both of her co-stars that once the show ends, their family will be all that’s left.
“I don’t want negativity for either of them because it’s very painful to watch,” she admitted. “I cried a lot about it.” Josephs then concluded, “It’s disappointing when someone fan those flames. I think [Aydin’s] fan the fire.”
