Margaret Josephs’ war with onetime friend Danielle Staub appears to carry over to her estranged husband, Marty Caffrey — though she finds a unique way to help him cool off from their heated fight.
PEOPLE has the exclusive premiere of the midseason trailer for season 9 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and it features Josephs pushing Caffrey into a pool.
“You’re a liar,” screams Josephs, before shoving Caffrey (with the help of her husband, Joe Benigno).
All are dressed up during the battle, Josephs in an elegant red gown and the men both in suits. But the nature of exactly why they’re fighting remains to be seen.
Could it be that Caffrey was defending Staub, who has been angry at Josephs for not paying her enough attention during the days leading up to her wedding? Or was Josephs sticking up for Staub, who appears to be fighting with Caffrey as they make their way down the aisle? (They’ve since split, with Caffrey filing for divorce after just four months of marriage).
Either way, there’s no love lost between Josephs, 51, and Staub, 56, either.
“You’re an old dog with no new tricks,” Josephs yells at one point.
“One item from my closet that I will never give up, I hate to say it, is my vintage furs and muffs,” Josephs, 51, said at the Page Six Style launch party at Barneys New York on Thursday. “The little collars I wear and everything, they’re grandfathered in — nobody get pissed off at me, but I’m not giving it up.”
“You can throw it over freakin’ pajamas and look fabulous,” she added with a shrug.
