Teresa Giudice allegedly has a new minion on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," according to one of her co-stars.

Margaret Josephs teased what fans can expect in the upcoming season of Bravo's "RHONJ" during a live taping of Page Six's "Virtual Reali-Tea" podcast. According to her, Giudice has a "new lapdog," possibly replacing Jennifer Aydin.

"There's a new lapdog in town," Josephs, 55, said on stage Monday night at City Winery in New York City.

Page Six noted that the Macbeth Collection founder was presumably referring to Danielle Cabral, a series rookie, who is rumored to make her debut as a full-time "Housewife" when the series returns next year.

"I hope it's a rescue," co-host Danny Murphy playfully responded.

"I think it is," Josephs quipped.

Jackie Goldschneider, who also participated in the event, added, "She needs a bath!"

Josephs quickly pointed out that she and Goldschneider only made the comments in jest and were only joking.

"We're being shady. We're kidding," she said. "We're joking! I'm totally joking," her castmate and BFF agreed.

The lapdog remark came after Josephs and Goldschneider got asked about Aydin's allegiance to Giudice. Both have maintained amicable relationships with Giudice, 50, following the table-flipper feud. However, they are closer to Giudice's sister-in-law and onscreen nemesis, Melissa Gorga.

Siblings Joe Gorga and Giudice have been feuding on and off for 13 years, and it has been documented on their reality show. Joe and Melissa skipped Giudice's wedding to Luis Ruelas in August after a blowout fight between the two couples.

There were rumors that Melissa and Joe's marriage was on the rocks, and they suspected that Giudice was involved in spreading the rumor.

"Teresa betrayed them in a way that's unforgivable," one source told People at the time. "They're not going to celebrate Teresa's new marriage when all she does is try to tear apart theirs."

"Viewers will see, but after the continued attacks, it's clear the healthiest thing for Joe and Melissa to do is walk away," a second insider said. "They just want to find peace, especially for their three children."

Giudice admitted that it was difficult for her brother skipped her big day because he's her "only family." "It was devastating," she confessed to Us Weekly.

"I mean, the day before [our wedding], I was in tears 'cause I just found out. It was heartbreaking [because] it's my only family, and Luis was hurting for me. My children were hurting. But then [on] that day, that day was our day," she added.

At the BravoCon 2022, Joe addressed his feud with his sister. According to him, he wanted to move on and focus on the things he was grateful for.

"At this point, I just don't know what else to say. I'm tired. I'm tired of talking about this for 13 years," Joe said.

"I'm 48 years old, and I'm happy that I woke up this morning and happy that I have healthy kids, a beautiful wife, a beautiful life, and I just want to be happy, man," he continued. "This kind of drama is ruining my life."
