Following a fight between Siggy Flicker and Margaret Josephs during last week's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, during which Dolores Catania told Josephs to “stay the f**k out” of it, Catania is speaking out.
“I don’t like what you did whether Siggy is my friend or not,” she explained to Radar Online about Josephs on October 23. “You don’t have to be loyal to her but I don’t like you jumping into a fight and going against her when it has nothing to do with you.”
“I wasn’t turning against Teresa [Giudice] or Melissa [Gorga],” she continued. “I never said a word when Siggy and Teresa and Melissa were fighting. I told Siggy to calm down. As long as no one touches each other I stay out of it when it’s amongst friends. But when Margaret starts yelling at Siggy across the table and calling her names and Melissa and Teresa allow it, how can I let all these people gang up on Siggy?”
According to Catania, Josephs jumped down Flicker's throat because she had a problem with Flicker's friendship with Kim DePaola.
“Margaret was behind every fight. Everything was escalated because of Margaret. I’ve been around long enough to know that a lot of the things that went on against Siggy would not have gone on if Margaret wasn’t there,” she noted.
To see more of Dolores Catania, Siggy Flicker, Margaret Josephs, and the rest of the cast, including Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Danielle Staub, tune into new episodes of The Real Housewives of New Jersey season eight on Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
