'RHONJ' Star Margaret Josephs Continues To Flaunt Lavish Lifestyle After Being Slapped With $180,000 Lawsuit Over Failed Payments
Margaret Josephs has not let a $180,000 lawsuit get in the way of her fabulous lifestyle.
On Tuesday, February 22, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 54, posted a quick video to Instagram, giving her followers a sneak peak into tonight's episode of the hit Bravo series — with lots of expensive goodies in tow!
"Suns out ☀️ Buns out 🥐 Of course the Marge brings coffee and croissants to the beach 😋👧🏼😝🌊⛱ #housewifeessentials @balthazarbakery • Tune in tonight! #rhonj@bravotv," Josephs captioned the video of herself decked out in a fabulous pink dress and her signature oversized Gucci sunglasses while showing off the treats from the swanky bakery.
On Monday, February 21, "The Marge" also spent time dining out with a pal at a luxurious restaurant. "A lovely dinner with the Serina From Tenefly," she captioned the photo of the duo along with a red heart emoji.
Josephs' fun escapades come as reports surfaced last week that the Macbeth Collection founder and her husband, Joe Benigno, were allegedly being sued for not making settlement payments from a former lawsuit regarding the foreclosure of their New Jersey residence.

According to legal documents, plaintiffs in the case, Charles and Camille Ardito, claimed the couple purchased two homes in Englewood, New Jersey, after Josephs allegedly promised one of the properties "could be quickly flipped for a profit."
As OK! previously reported, the RHONJ fan favorites allegedly agreed to contribute $180,000 to the purchase price of the properties. However, the Arditos claimed Josephs and Benigno purchased the first mansion for $1,500,000 instead of $1,100,000 and the second house for $1,800,000 instead of $1,400,000.
“The agreement called [the Arditos] to provide $400,000 for the purchase of the properties. [The Arditos] eventually provided $440,000 to be used by [Josephs and Benigno]," the legal papers noted. The plaintiffs also claimed the reality star couple "falsely represented that there were no judgments against them" when applying for the mortgage loans.
"Between the two of them, Defendants had judgments entered against them totaling over $330,000 that would constitute liens on the Properties, if docketed, and they soon were after the closing," court papers read.
