A daughter of a former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star has called out Teresa Giudice for “body-shaming” Margaret Josephs.
At RHONJ Season 12 Episode 9, the feudal castmates played softball for charity. Giudice had brought her line of sportswear for the ladies to wear during the game, but Josephs refused due to ongoing tensions.
Later in the episode, Giudice made a comment about how Joseph’s butt looked “shaky,” and if she had worn her line, it wouldn’t have looked like it.

Ashley Holmes takes aim at Teresa Giudice for ‘body-shaming’ by Margaret Josephs
Many fans called out Giudice for the comments, and a former castmate even chimed in.
Ashley Holmes, the daughter of Giudice’s former best friend Jacqueline Laurita, took to her Instagram Stories to blast Giudice.
“Shaming someone while they’re trying to sell workout clothes huh…” she wrote, according to a Screenshot shared on Reddit.
Fans joined Holmes in the thread.
“Love and Light, B****”, someone wrote.
“I know 20 is an adult age, but the Gia butt grip and comparison was kind of terrifying and sad to me.” A fan pointed this out. “Like the damn Tre, you’re grown up and hot enough to sell it yourself, your behavior towards the other women didn’t make her wear your stuff, I understand your irritation but your stupidity shows every time , if you do that.”
“Teresa won’t understand” another person commented.
“I would fucking love it if they brought Jaq and Ashley back to go after Tre and Gia just to take them off the perch.” wrote another fan.
“Never thought I’d cheer for Ashlee, but here we are.” someone commented.
“Teresa is really the worst in this whole thing” someone wrote. “She’s got an army of fans who apologize for all this shit, but it’s disgusting. Plain and simple. What she’s really upset about is people asking questions about a VERY PUBLIC story about her boyfriend. You’re on a reality show, you’re dating someone whose private dating life has gone public… of course that’s fodder for the show.”
Margaret Josephs thinks Teresa Giudice’s ‘shaky’ butt comments ‘show her maturity and try to embarrass me’
When appearing on the Real Housewives of New Jersey After ShowJosephs responded to Giudice’s comments.
“I was there at that charity event, I didn’t want to let anything she said in that second distract from what I was there for,” Josephs said on the show. “It’s indicative of her character to try to do a fundraiser – to blend in – to say something rude at the fundraiser. It shows their maturity and tries to shame me.”
Fellow cast member Jackie Goldschneider, who has been vocal about her eating disorder, also addressed the comments.
“I thought it was awful because I’m so sensitive to it now,” Goldschneider said on the after show. “I just don’t like it when a woman’s body is criticized because it’s harder for me to be okay with the weight gain,” admitted the mother-of-four. “Part of it was personal, I didn’t like it at all.”
