The Real Housewives of New Jersey crashed into chaos Wednesday night — and the drama isn’t over yet.
An argument between Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub erupted in a blur of tossed wine and glass, and the episode ended with dueling defenders, Melissa Gorga and Jennifer Aydin, almost coming to blows.
Danielle, always itching for a fight, baited Margaret by bringing up her settled lipliner beef with Jennifer. Teresa Giudice tossed in her cosign, and tensions boiled over when Danielle began making nasty comments about Margaret’s splintered relationship with her stepchildren.
“I have people who I f*cking care about,” Danielle said. “And you know what, I don’t see your children anywhere, so don’t ever talk about me. If you’d spend a little time with your kids, maybe they’d be there. Maybe you’d see your grandkids, and maybe — just maybe — you’d have a relationship with them.”
“Danielle, you’re an old dog with no new tricks,” Margaret fired back. “You don’t even know my kids. … They are around, but they wouldn’t be around you.”
“Nobody knows your kids, they’re nowhere around,” Danielle screamed. “They’re not around you, let me tell you. They are not around you. Get over it.”
Twitter exploded during the episode, with fans weighing in on the drama and taking sides.
#RHONJ is so hard to watch with Danielle Staub’s psychotic ass on the screen. Literally, as awful as Jennifer is, you know Staub was fueling that fire. @BravoTV please don’t welcome this psycho back next season. She’s unbearable.

Teresa is willing to turn a blind eye to what Danielle says about Margaret, because Teresa only cares about herself. #RHONJ

I don’t understand these women… you fired the first shot and @MargaretJosephs shoots back in defense yet you’re the victim because you lost your cool… don’t dish it out if you can’t take it @JenniferAydin #RHONJ

All these arguments is Danielle’s fault. Why bring up something that was squashed? Such an asshole! #RHONJ
