EXCLUSIVE: Siggy Flicker Exposes Margaret Josephs’ Erased “Osama Bin Laden” Comeback During Milan Fight!

Posted on Dec 14 2017 - 4:39pm by Staff Writer

As fans know, The Real Housewives of New Jersey took an explosive turn when the ladies jetted off to Milan, following Teresa Giudice and Kim Depaola’s Posche fashion show blowout.

Tension erupted at a group dinner when Siggy Flicker addressed Margaret Josephs’ “Hitler” comment. Siggy told Margaret, “Unless you are discussing the Holocaust, Hitler’s name should not come up.” Margaret responded with, “How are you supposed to make analogies about evil people if you can’t use the evil people’s names?”

However, Siggy Flicker tells AllAboutTheTea.com exclusively that the real deal was left on the cutting room floor — and viewers saw a watered down version of their actual exchange.

“Once again production is trying to put out a false narrative.” The RHONJ star tells AllAboutTheTea.com. “When I calmly approached Margret about bringing up Hitler in a conversation that was far removed from the Holocaust or the atrocities of World War II, she was not apologetic.”

Siggy reveals Margaret’s unedited response was rude, dismissive and meant to provoke a red-hot reaction from the relationship expert. 

“Production left out that she [Margaret’] said — ‘Oh be quiet…you’re overreacting. What should I have done, reference Osama Bin Laden?'” Siggy shares with AllAboutTheTea.com.

The edited fight was seemingly produced to make Siggy look unhinged over what appeared to be non-inflammatory responses from Margaret.

The mom of two asserts that Real Housewives of New Jersey editors routinely slice and dice footage to paint her as emotionally over-the-top.

“This has been happening to me all season with production only showing reactions and no interactions; in effort to bury me and portray Margret as this good girl.”

Margaret launched her reality career decidedly allied with Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Danielle Staub, despite scoring the gig on Siggy’s recommendation. Siggy worked to mend the rift during filming — but as the season played out, so did the relationship expert’s patience.

On Thursday, Siggy took to Twitter to poignantly explain why Margaret (or anyone for that matter) should never casually reference Hitler — the Nazi Party leader, who systematically murdered some six million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe. “In today’s society, there is no room for trivializing evil. We need to look at this beyond the prism of reality TV. I am standing for basic human decency. Hitler’s name should never be referenced in casual conversation because there is nothing casual about it.” She wrote.

As fans know, the subject of Hitler is a sensitive topic for the “Write Your Own Fairy Tale,” author. Siggy’s father and grandparents are Holocaust survivors.

Siggy’s father is renowned scholar, Dr. Mordecai Paldiel. He’s a professor, author, a leading expert on rescue during the Holocaust, and the former Director of Israel’s Holocaust Authority. Dr. Paldiel has devoted his life to recognizing those who hid and saved the innocent during World War II.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET, on Bravo.

    I don’t like anything about Siggy except those 2 leather chairs she has in her family room. The above picture looks ridiculous…it looks like she scratching the side of her face. She adds nothing to the Housewives program and she should take her bestie with her when she gets the boot…plus she has such an annoying voice 🙂

    • Everything about Soggy is annoying.

  • Apple

    Editing aside…this one is crazy…and not very bright. How does she navigate in the world? Does she flip out every time someone says Hitler’s name? Margaret had a point…if you evaluate everyone based solely on how they treat you, you are going to be manipulated.

  • Supatall2u

    Siggy is just a thirsty old THOT who thinks she’s the answer to everyone’s problem. She needs to take several seats in the cheap assed thirsty brokedown palace that is the Poshe fashion show

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Thank you AATT and Siggy for revealing the truth about Margaret’s words. Large Marge (as Bette calls her) is a disgusting pig , who steals, lies and cheats. She turned on Siggy in a nanosecond to get some reality TV fame by hitching her wagon to a felon and felon/porn star. Large Marge is vile and needs to go next season.

    • wellWellwell

      I don’t give two shits about Siggy and her fake acts. I’m sure production encouraged her to do it. I have never liked her, but I believe she is telling the truth about production. This will be her last season.

      Nasty Andy is fascinated with another broke down, old azz con, what’s new..zzz
      Large Marge the Barge, will be her mafia name according to the Felon.
      Def: (a flat-bottomed boat for carrying freight).

      • RealitytvJunkie

        I wish you had placed a warning label at the start of your comment. I am still laughing uncontrollably at “Large Marge the Barge.” ???????????????? Andy loves a train wreck so Large Marge is in and Siggy is out. Siggy’s life is too normal for this show.

        • Cassandra Dreme

          :/

        • wellWellwell

          🙂 I think you’re right, Siggy is to normal for the show even though she isn’t coming off normal.

  • JustSayin

    A) Hitler was a better choice for the point she was trying to make, and B) I don’t get how mentioning Osama Bin Laden was rude…Soggy is really stretching to find something to be offended about ????

  • Shelly Jones

    Siggs….this is not helping. They are running with the unhinged narrative because you gave them ammunition.

  • we”r”family

    While I think that Margaret could’ve used a different comparison, it wouldn’t have mattered. Crying SIggy would’ve found fault in anything. She detest that Margaret is more likeable than she is.

  • Kissme

    Have we ever seen Siggy approach in a calm way?

    • we”r”family

      Like LisaR, Siggy is Energizer Bunny number 2. She is so full of herself and keeps going and going (and not in a good way).

      • Kissme

        I’m about ready to unfollow her because she is a maddening nut job. She keeps trying to say she was right while Margaret is wrong but she only makes herself look worse in 80+% of her tweets and retweet’s.

        • Cassandra Dreme

          just do it 😀

          • Kissme

            I’m surprised she hasn’t blocked me.
            I guess I do respectfully disagree with her but I’m always disagreeing.
            She really does have to many back & forths on Twitter.

  • Kell Mactell

    I am so impressed with Ziggy’s father!
    Not so much with her.
    Margaret is not a nice woman.
    The whole show is lacking in nice people.

    • Chickpea16

      I think Marge is nice. All this started with the wreath ceremony and Siggy felt upstaged. Considering it was a trip for Melissa birthday and getting Tre to cheer up, Siggy made it all about herself. I think Dolores is assigned to hang with her because no one else wants to film with her.

      • Cassandra Dreme

        THAT PART..

  • LondonGal

    Was this article written by Siggy? Seriously, she has to realise by now that using Hitler as an analogy wasn’t Margaret being anti-Semitic, was it insensitive? Yes. And she probably would have got an apology if she had just said that her choice of words struck a nerve or was hurtful instead of publicly naming her as an anti Semite on National television. Soggy is insufferable and I hope she doesn’t come back next season

  • sunkissed748

    If Marge used Charles Manson or Ted Bundy as a comparison, Sliggy would’ve found a way to throw it back at her. “My father’s cousin’s sister went to elementary school with one of the followers & you have no idea how it affects me!!” big mouth grudge carrying around phony. BTW stop blaming production as it is as old as the hills.

  • Kelly’s Koven

    Siggy is fighting a losing battle. Once production labels you the villain they will always edit you to look like the bad guy. I don’t like Pigtails and Dirty Danielle for obvious reasons. Melissa is insufferable.

    • Mar

      Right.. every one will have a turn to be edited in a bad way. Siggy’s histrionics is what is over the top.

    • CB

      I kind of laughed.. i heard Joe and Melissa owe millions.. so how the heck is she in italy going to buy those cloths? plus Melissa is being sued by her partner.. who they say actually owned the cloths and Melissa did not.. Melissa is so fake.. its hard to watch… a real wannabe.. but her kids are so cute…..

  • Chickpea16

    Siggy is insanely jealous of Marge. I have seen Marge’s products in Target. Real cute. Editing and Marge had nothing to do with her on the floor yelling and humiliating Melissa. Also, Siggy’s father was born in 1937. Wouldn’t he have been a kid during Holocoust so how did he head a rescue?

    Has Siggy ever appeared on WWHL? I have only seen her in the audience when Dolores was on. Dolores has been on twice already. Her blaming Bravo for her big mouth will do her in.

    • Contessa Bel Raven

      He’s the leading authority on the rescues not that he personally led any.

      • Chickpea16

        I read it wrong.

        • Contessa Bel Raven

          I hope I didn’t sound rude. I read too quickly sometimes myself so was just trying to clarify it for you. If I did please forgive me as being rude was not my intent.

          • Chickpea16

            No worries, I didn’t take it as rude.

          • Contessa Bel Raven

            ???? Good, I’m glad! Have a great weekend!

    • Bryan

      Her shit belongs in Target as tacky as she is

      • BriannaG

        Yeah, really. What to be jealous of? Pigtails has been sued by several companies for stealing their product ideas and now filed BK. Her products and taste are horrible.

        • Bryan

          Thank you, she’s a slob with questionable hygiene

          • Cassandra Dreme

            really? :/

          • Bryan

            Yes

        • Chickpea16

          I thought they were cute and well made.

          • BriannaG

            Pigtails already has at least one case that she lost, and has been ordered to pay money to a company. And more cases are coming. So she filed for BK. She is a liar and a thief, and a liar is always a liar. Siggy annoys me sometimes with over the top emotions and noise, but I’ll take her word over Pigtail’s.

          • the underground train

            Not to mention Siggy’s friends, the Lauritas have lawsuits too.

      • Chickpea16

        Hey Target is my family’s mothership. 🙂

        • Bryan

          I am sure she feels she is too good for Target

    • Kelly’s Koven

      Those aren’t Marge’s products you’re seeing at Target, it Vineyard Vines. All of Marge’s collection was pulled from all retails stores. Her products are listed as “sold out” on her website because she can’t sell them anymore since the lawsuit.

      • Chickpea16

        It said the MacBeth Collection plainly on the box and in smaller letters distributed by Kennedy Intl.

      • Texas Sis

        That is not true. I buy her things all the time and just ordered the On Vacay luggage. I received it today and I just went on her website and nothing shows “sold out.”

    • CNN

      The article doesn’t state he “head a rescue”….”Dr. Paldiel has devoted his life to recognizing those who hid and saved the innocent during World War II.”

      • Chickpea16

        You’re right, my bad.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Chick! I just posted a comment where I stated Sigmund could learn how to communicate with people by watching the eloquent way in which her father speaks.

      • Chickpea16

        Yes good idea. Siggy’s logic is flawed on how no one can speak of Hitler but her father made a career out of it. No disrespect to her dad.

    • Srl83

      How would anyone be jealous of someone who’s going through bankruptcy and got sued for copying someone else’s ideas???

      • Chickpea16

        Well Siggy is jealous on the housewife front apparently.

        • Srl83

          I don’t think so.. I just think she doesn’t like Margaret bcuz Margaret has a smart ass mouth. Which is cool but one has to know when to use a filter.

  • BriannaG

    I might be in minority, but I believe Siggy.

    We’ve discussed before that there were some scenes noticeably edited. When production showed Siggy’s reaction one after another and Margaret just sitting there with her words obviously being cut out. Like at the Gorga’s cafe food tasting.
    I wish Siggy wouldn’t give that much reaction to Pigtails, but Pigtails is a bully who made Siggy her easy target and keeps pushing.

    • Chickpea16

      Yeah, you’re the minority 🙂

    • CNN

      I believe Siggy as well. And I agree with your comment. Siggy is super sensitive and Margaret unfortunately is using that to passive-aggressively torture her.

    • Bryan

      I will take Sigmund hysterics and all over Strega Staub and Stinky Pippi anyday, and Mrs Juicy is going to regret trusting them when they fuck her over and they WILL do that!

    • Mar

      Some scenes are edited badly.

      • Chickpea16

        They can’t edit what you don’t say.

    • Marsbars09

      You can see it as clear as day, Brianna? I don’t know what or who to believe.

    • Chickpea16

      I don’t see that at all. Margaret admits she’s snarky but Siggy is the one bullying with manipulating crying and sending her rabid fans after Margaret. Siggy even called PETA on Margaret and has gotten death threats. When has Margaret made fun of her hysterectomy? The whole cast knows it is more than hormones with this woman. I think she is a spoiled brat that is used to getting her own way and hated being upstaged by a newcomer. This is why Dolores has been assigned to mainly film with her. Poor Dolores.

  • Cassandra Dreme

    GTFO Siggy! you have been claiming ‘bad editing’ all season! Even with what you are adding to the conversation…you’re still a stupid bitch.

    • Kissme

      She is coming off as obsessed with Margaret.

      • Chickpea16

        Siggy did not bring her on as a friend. Marge said on radio interview that she was approached years ago and declined because it wasn’t a good time then.

        • Kissme

          I read that also.

  • Just My Opinion

    Why is it that STIGGY is the only one on any house wives shows that always bitches about editing?? I think she is becoming a bit unhinged. Thank goodness Shannut isn’t on the same show !!

  • Just My Opinion

    Wasn’t that mark on the other side of her lip last week?..LMAO

    • Kissme

      People keep saying that, I need to pay attention ????

      • the underground train

        Pay attention puh-lease! Sorry couldn’t resist.

        • suse

          I have sat and wondered, “Where was that?” Now, I know I am not alone. :/

    • Texas Sis

      On two episodes in certain scenes it was totally not even there at all.

  • Jennymckitty

    I’m trying to decide who cries the most….Siggy or Robyn Brown from Sister Wives.

  • Marsbars09

    AATT, thank you for sharing the clip of Dr. Mordecai. He spoke so eloquently about the horrible atrocities he and his family faced during the Holocaust. His daughter needs to take a page from him about how to properly communicate with an audience.

  • Marsbars09

    When did Sigmund calmly address Marge about anything? All I saw was her going nuclear at the dinner table. Did Sigmund call Marge anti-Semitic after she made the Osama Bin Laden comment?
    If what Sigmund is claiming is true, the producers must have it really in for her. Why on earth would the producers use a newbie to make Sigmund look bad?

    • BriannaG

      I can see it. Pigtails really hit the nerve with Siggy by making fun of her hysterectomy, several times on TV and social media. That was very low. I was disgusted by it. It’s a serious issue and millions of women suffer from it. Hormonal dis balance and early menopause really affect those momen’s physical and mental health. I’ve seen it a lot in medical field. So yes, after that Siggy couldn’t take anything calmly from Pigtails.
      Pigtails is rude POS and a bully, she could be easily used to after Siggy, for a paycheck, of course. And Siggy is an easy target.

      • the underground train

        Ok Pigtails is a rude POS. Got that out of the way. You know who else is a POS? How about Siggy’s friend Jacqueline who bashed Teresa. Or Teresa who called Kim D a piece of shit coke whore. Yet Siggy tells Teresa that it is okay for her to express her feelings. All across the franchise we have women degrading their castmates. From Nene telling Claudia that her clit left her body on Atlanta to Dorinda yelling at Sonja that her vagina is like the Holland tunnel on New York to Kenya’s fertility issues being mocked, and on the OC, Kelly calling out Shannon’s facial hair and using the C word. Siggy signed up for this show knowing what type of behavior these women participate in.

        • suse

          Hear, hear. 🙂

          • the underground train

            TY. I don’t know why Siggy thinks she can get away with this victim act. Margaret may not be a nice a woman but she is not spreading rumors of drugging and raping like Phaedra. Siggy acts like Margaret is the devil in disguise.

  • Karianne

    First of all, I sincerely doubt that Siggy approached anything “calmly” with Margaret. Secondly, it’s ridiculous to say someone can’t say Hitler was not a good person, as Margaret said. Third, Margaret nailed it – Siggy over-reacted and has made a mountain out of a molehill. Margaret has family that are also Jewish, Siggy calling her “anti-semitic” is far worse than Margaret using an analogy to make a point and saying Hitler was not a good person.

    • Jane_one

      Nail. On. Head.

    • the underground train

      Yes to everything you said!

    • Elizabeth Fisher

      Thank you!!!

  • Jane_one

    The Hitler remark got blown way out of proportion by Siggy because she wanted to use it to have another hysterical fit and get more camera time.

    Margaret’s analogy was overkill, but what she said was true and it in no way disrespectful of Jews. Siggy, on the other hand, proceeds to top Margaret by calling her anti-semitic and I don’t believe for one minute Siggy thinks that is true. She just wanted to top Margaret on the outrage scale.

    Siggy also has no business telling anyone they cannot utter someone’s name. Who does she think she is to say such a thing? Being a Jew doesn’t give her that right anymore than it is the right of anyone else for any reason.

    One suggestion for Siggy. If she feels victimized by the editing, then leave the show. If she doesn’t want to do that (and she won’t), then stop playing the victim card and put your big panties on. The pull ups are getting rank.

    • the underground train

      Thank you! This comment is everything! I thought I was a lone wolf in my opinion of Siggy.

      • Elizabeth Fisher

        Y’all are not alone

    • chacha1

      wearing Treape’s and Danielle’s soiled skank underwear is not a good look for Siggy (and I do not like that name SIGGY, reminds me of an elephants name)

    • CB

      Didn’t her husband say to her on the phone to “Take her own advice??” funny how people make a living give US ADVICE and they can’t even “walk the walk” themselves! hypocrite! Remember her saying she gets triggered by people name calling her? i can’t remember Soggy Siggy? something like that.. and i think to myself.. for someone who gets triggered by JUST LOOKING AT THIS CHICK FOR HEAVENS SAKE… isn’t it interesting how LOW she gets to name call others.. unbelievable

  • boredatwork

    Siggy’s parents are squirming with embarrassment. Margaret said nothing wrong, definitely nothing anti semitic. This is a hissy fit, by a small brained drama queen, who’s grasping at straws, for attention. Siggy is fucking sad.

    • chacha1

      Although I am a catholic with Italian heritage I remember I had a neighbor when I was a young girl who had the numbers tatooed on her arm, she was a sweet lady and was so happy to escape and come to America, I got interested in her story and read a lot of books about the Halocaust and it was a known fact that Hitler wanted to create a whole nation of blond haired and blue eyed people ….. the vicious disgusting Hitler would spare the blonde and blue eyed prisoners

      • suse

        Yes, we all know that story.

        • chacha1

          Oh okay

      • Joan of Arc

        sparing the blonde and blue-eyed prisoners was probably the least of his crimes against humanity, but good for you for doing research.

  • the underground train

    Ok here I go into the fire again. Against popularity I still side with Margaret. Yes the Hitler analogy was extreme and in poor taste. However Margaret was not making light of or diminishing the Holocaust, one of the greatest travesty in human history. Siggy was amped up before confronting Margaret about the Hitler comment. Even as I try to look at this situation objectively, removing how I feel about Siggy and consider production manipulation and editing, I replay the scene in my head with Margaret saying “Oh be quiet you are over reacting. What should have I done, reference Osama bin Laden instead?” And I still feel Siggy overreacted. Even the rest of the cast including Dolores get it. Margaret is not anti-Semitic. No matter how Siggy spins it her reactions are not warranted. I just can’t get on the poor Siggy train you all keep pushing. And one more thing, can we please stop pretending Siggy brought Margaret on the show. Siggy did not bring her on the show and did not know her personally! Therefore Margaret has no need to be loyal to this deranged woman.

    • Elizabeth Fisher

      co-signing!

    • chacha1

      I am not on the Siggy train nor do I read great support for her on other sites … she is a loud mouthed crazy person who really needs to get off the show and back to chasing after her son JOSHUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA…. maybe she can set up a trailer near his college and scream for him everyday as he passes by.

      • CB

        OMG i can’t stop laughing… JOASHUAAAAAAAA YOU ARE SO FUNNY!

      • Trixie

        ???????????????? OMG!! So true!

    • mytwocents

      Against popularity? I think the majority agree with you. I don’t think hyperbole or mentioning history to make a point means you have spoken in poor taste unless you approve of what an evil dictator has done.

      • the underground train

        Well this site seems to be pro Siggy. Did you see their wonderful Thanksgiving day post of Siggy’s son coming home for the holiday? It was apparently news worthy epic headline (snorts in my coffee).

        • Joan of Arc

          This site promotes all of the ‘reality stars’ but most of the commenters here are very anti-Siggy.

        • jayanna

          I agree – it is very Pro-Siggy site. There is never a negative thing said about her in the articles. They completely vilify Margaret and worship Siggy. At one time it seemed that they were suppressing negative comments about Siggy in the comment section as well. This is not a neutral site.

    • Kissme

      Siggy is on Twitter saying she won this argument ????
      She is delusional.

    • SMDRN66

      I’m with you. I don’t think there will be too many people holding your feet to the flame since we pretty much agree with you. Yes, Hitler is known for causing the death of 6 million Jews. But there were another 6 million Christians killed as well. 12 million people were killed during the Holocaust. People choose how they act and react. Siggy needs to learn to stay home if she can’t handle what other people say. It’s not up to her to decided what is or isn’t appropriate. Comparing a bad person to Hitler is not anti-Semitic. Agreeing with Hitler and worshiping him is.

  • Elizabeth Fisher

    A great way to guaranty you aren’t brought back the following season is to call out production!!!

  • suse

    Don’t act like a nut and you won’t be portrayed as a nut. You cannot blame your reactions on others. Period. It was Siggy that goes flat out on the floor at her own party to make Melissa look bad. So, no.

  • suse

    Teresa’s family went to PRISON after the “editing” caught the attention of . . . whomever catches that. I don’t think I can recall once when she blamed it on “editing.” Siggy needs more pellets.

CRAY CRAY

    • mytwocents

      Siggy is just simply not very mature or smart.

  • mytwocents

    Mother of Gawd SIGGY! It doesn’t matter if Margaret mentioned the Khmer Rouge, Pol Pot, Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein, his sons, Idi Amin, or the leader of Isis or the Janjaweed, et al. The point was that even the most evil of human beings are nice to SOMEONE, but that doesn’t make them a good person. CAN YOU REALLY BE THAT STUPID? You are embarrassing yourself. Just be quiet, sit in a corner and keep telling yourself how fabulous you are. That seems to be all you can handle.

  • Wicked Cupcake

    Siggy makes me wish those ugly, dwarf, twins were still on the show instead of her. I cannot even make it through an entire episode watching her histrionics over every perceived slight.

    Damn woman. Let it go already. She didn’t compare YOU to Hitler, she basically compared Kim D to him. You called the cast garbage AND called Margaret anti-Semitic. I think you’re all pretty much even at this point. It’s been MONTHS since this was filmed, LET IT GO.

  • Jessica Robinson

    Wait , so if I say someone is a mini Hitler I’m anti Semitic? Siggy this is why people hate sensitive ass people quick to throw the race card. She tried to make that political real quick. I’m kind of upset I missed Margaret’s remarks on Osama bin Laden , clever joke that went right over Siggy head hahahaha
