Today's #SeeHER Spotlight is shining on one the biggest stars on Bravo.... Margaret Josephs!
The #RHONJ star's new book, "Caviar Dreams, Tuna Fish Budget: How to Survive in Business and Life," spills the tea on her personal life and the journey to where she is today.
Margaret is a Jersey girl from Elizabeth who's family immigrated to the US from Hungary. Raised primarily by her mother, Marge Sr., her childhood did have its share of drama. She earned a degree in fashion design from New York's Fashion Institute of Technology and found herself working in the Garment District as a dress designer. Margaret put her career on hold in 1994 to marry Jan Josephs which blended three children from his previous marriage, with one son born to the couple in 1996.
Josephs ultimately launching her Macbeth Collection, which grew into a multimillion-dollar lifestyle brand. In 2013, the star re-married to her current husband, Joe Benigno.
The reality star has written this book to share her personal story and to shed some light on the misconception that being a member of the "Housewives" sorority is all glam and glitter.
"I think people see everybody on the show and they're like, Oh my God, they see a Housewife, they start a business, they think it happens overnight - it doesn't..."
The book is out now and while the entertainment factor is high, there is also an underlying and essential roadmap for women which is "If I can do it, you can too." Margaret is a staunch advocate for women and supports LGBTQ+ causes. We're happy to focus on her achievements as this week's #SeeHER Spotlight.
