Margaret Josephs Husband, Who is He?
Margaret Josephs Husband – Margaret Josephs, star of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” is married to Joe Benigno. She has repeatedly defended her husband’s profession as a plumber in public.
Since the ninth season of “RHONJ,” Josephs has been a member of the cast. Nothing was known about her or her husband at the time except that he goes by the nickname “Super Joe.”
Joe Benigno was described as a plumber and contractor on Josephs’ website. They have a “joie de vivre” approach toward life, according to her, which is why they eloped in Las Vegas in 2013. Later, I’ll go into more detail about their relationship.
Joe Benigno RHONJ Wife Margaret
While the “RHONJ” star appears to be in love with Benigno, he’s far not the only man she’s had a romantic relationship with. Josephs has already acknowledged to feeling compelled to get intimate with a former boss.
Josephs got her first job in the garment quarter of New York City when she was just 22 years old. Her attractive supervisor, who was 20 years her senior, was always interested in her and would ask her to various stores to shop with her.
They’d go to his place after eating supper, where the unknown man would press Josephs to sleep with him. The reality star admits to giving in, explaining that they had a “strange dynamic” and that it was a “very different period.”
Their romance terminated in an unknown way and at an unknown time. She had already married Jan Josephs in January 1994. Jan, who was 20 years her senior, had three children from a previous marriage when they married.
Margaret Josephs claimed his children needed someone to adore them. She was ideal for the part because she was “totally enamored” with them.
Joe Benigno RHONJ Net worth
Joe Benigno has an estimated net worth of $800,000. His wife Margaret Josephs however has a net worth of more than $50 million. Joe Benigno makes his living as a plumber.
Joe Benigno RHONJ Wife Former Marriage
In 2013, Josephs divorced her first husband, which is likely to have strained her connection with her stepchildren. She admitted in 2018 that she hadn’t spoken to two of Jan’s three children in six years.
They don’t detest her, according to Josephs; they’re just “carrying a grudge.” She was hopeful that things would grow easier over time after she said she’d die over them.
The son of Jan and Margaret Josephs is now 21 years old, and little is known about him. People even assumed she didn’t have biological children, she added.
Joe Benigno RHONJ and Margaret Josephs
In “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Josephs and Benigno’s relationship has raised some questions. Melissa Gorga’s husband, Joe Gorga, was taken aback by Josephs’ treatment of Benigno during a heated disagreement.
Joe informed Benigno that Josephs was harsh with him and that he would not allow his wife to treat him in this manner. Benigno confessed that his wife was abrasive, but that their quarrels are “over” in “10 minutes.”
It was Josephs’ turn to defend her husband publicly in May of this year. During the “RHONJ” reunion, Josephs revealed that her co-star Jennifer Aydin’s Instagram bio said “Married to a plastic surgeon,” and that it was her “identity.”
Another Housewife, Teresa Giudice, claimed it was possibly because Aydin was proud of her husband’s profession as a plastic surgeon. She went on to state that Josephs would not admit to being married to a plumber.
Josephs was offended by her remarks and stated that there is nothing wrong with being a plumber. She described her husband as a man who is trustworthy, compassionate, loving, and supporting.
Margaret Josephs even tweeted a photo of Benigno and Joe Gorga working, captioning it, “I’m proud of all the dedicated men.” The attachment between Josephs and Benigno is undeniably deep.
When Joe Benigno first met Margaret, he was working as a contractor on some improvements at her home. Margaret Josephs was still married to her ex-husband, Jan Josephs, at the time. But it didn’t stop them from having an affair, which drove Margaret to leave Jan and start a new relationship with Joe.
Margaret reportedly divorced Jan in 2013 and married Joe the following year. Their wedding took place in Las Vegas.
