Siggy Flicker has resigned from The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The outspoken reality star has negotiated her early release from her reality gig with Bravo, after her explosive feud with co-star Margaret Josephs took an ugly turn.
“Siggy had enough,” an insider for the show revealed to Radar Online. “She doesn’t need the money, so she quit. She and Bravo came to a deal that let her out of her three-year contract a year early.”
Siggy has been at odds with Margaret all season — Margaret mocked Siggy’s hormonal struggles, shaded her husband and even teased her parenting.
“She wasn’t going to let the production company destroy her reputation any longer,” added the source.
The two Jersey “Housewives” have been going back and forth all season — their bitter battle boiled over to social media and fans rallied to Siggy’s defense; after Margaret and her fans bullied the relationship expert non-stop.
During an episode of the Bravo reality series — Margaret referenced Hitler — aimed at the only Jewish woman in the group. Additionally, Margaret threw Siggy’s daughter into their drama.
“Siggy is done with the show. She was horrified by Margaret’s Hitler comment,” the insider dished. “But more than that, Margaret brought up Siggy’s daughter during the trip to Italy. No one should attack children. And Margaret did. And that was covered up too by the producers. Siggy didn’t get a fair edit the whole season.”
Tensions exploded during a cast trip in Milan, Italy when Siggy addressed Margaret’s “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?”
As exclusively reported, Siggy Flicker revealed to AllAboutTheTea.com 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 confirmed her resignation through Bravo’s Daily Dish:
“After much reflection and Bravo’s support, I have decided that this will be my last season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I am grateful to the network for allowing me to be part of this successful franchise and wish only the best for Teresa, Melissa, Dolores, Danielle and Margaret. At this time, I want to focus on my beautiful family, my growing business and some exciting new projects.”
AllAboutTheTea.com reached out to the “Write Your Own Fairy Tale” author — and she explains exactly what drove her decision to walk away from the Bravo reality series.
“The goal in life is to always be happy and false narratives have no place in reality TV.” Siggy tells AllAboutTheTea.com. “This season has caused me so much grief and I am choosing to put my family and health first.”
She continues: “I count my blessing and I am grateful for all I have in life. I just wish to be far removed from the drama.”
While fans are sad to see her go, Siggy has been used as a punching bag by her RHONJ co-stars, so removing herself from the toxic situation is the best decision.
