Danielle Cabral backs claim that Jackie Goldschneider started Margaret Josephs feud for attention

“Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Danielle Cabral is in agreement with Melissa Gorga, who believes their castmate Jackie Goldschneider started a feud with Margaret Josephs for attention.

“I have seen people do the most obscene things, act the most obscene way, be the most evil, do the most stupid s–t that is so questionable that I’m like, ‘What resides in your heart and in your soul?’ I just don’t get it,” Cabral, 38, told Page Six’s Evan Real and Danny Murphy during Wednesday’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” live taping at Chelsea Table & Stage in New York City.

“I’m so excited for all these stories to be unpacked this year, for real,” she added.

At BravoCon last month, Gorga suggested to us that Goldschneider — who used to be close with both the Envy boutique owner and Josephs — picked a bone with the latter to stay relevant.

“I think that sometimes people feel like they need to ruffle feathers to make a splash, and it’s unfortunate,” Gorga, 44, said at the time.

“You need to stay authentic to your true self,” she continued, “and I think she’s looking for rumblings, trying to throw things out there and seeing if they stick.”

“RHONJ” cast member Jennifer Fessler, who sat beside Cabral during our live show Wednesday, has a different opinion.

Though she assured co-hosts Real and Murphy that she “adore[s]” Goldschneider and Josephs equally, she made sure to defend the former against Cabral’s comments.

“I don’t think it comes from a [place of] thirst,” Fessler said of Goldshneider’s problems with Josephs. “I don’t. I think that they have had issues, and they had issues before filming started.”

The 53-year-old went on to say that she doesn’t believe Josephs sees it that way, either.

Though fans likely won’t learn about the ins and outs of the pair’s falling out until “RHONJ” Season 14 premieres, Josephs, 56, told Page Six at BravoCon that she’s “sad” over it, calling it both “weird” and “shocking.”

Josephs — who has her “own book with Simon & Schuster” — addressed speculation that she and Goldschneider found themselves at odds over the latter’s recently released memoir, “The Weight of Beautiful,” saying that she “championed her for that book” and “wanted her book to be successful.”

“I think she got very offended when I said, ‘I championed you,’” the “Caviar Dreams, Tuna Fish Budget” author admitted, making sure to note that “no one gets anywhere on their own.”

Meanwhile, Goldschneider, 47, it not grieving the relationship.

“I think the friendship kind of came to an end,” she told us at BravoCon, “and I think everybody will see it, and they’ll understand why I’m not sad.”

Regarding the catalyst for the clash, she coyly shared, “There was a trust that got broken, and I don’t know that that’s so easily repaired.”
