Teresa Giudice accused Margaret Josephs of spreading rumors about her fiancé, Luis “Louie” Ruelas to bloggers during the latest episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Guidice believed Josephs dug into Ruelas’ past and smeared the Bravo bloggers. “Because you talk to people about his past,” Guidice told Josephs on the latest episode of RHONJ. “I think so. I’m sure you inserted yourself.
One of the alleged “bloggers” is speaking out against this allegation. David Yontef, who is actually not a blogger, has been accused on social media of being Josephs’ mole. He hosts the weekly podcast Behind the velvet rope. In addition, he has formed friendships with many Housewivesbut especially the RHONJ cast.
He spoke exclusively to Showbiz Cheat Sheet about accusations that he obtained information from Josephs.
Does David Yontef Spread Margaret’s ‘RHONJ’ Season 12 Gossip About Teresa fiance?
Fans believed Yontef was guilty of spreading Josephs rumors after he was last seen RHONJ episode at his mother’s birthday party. He said he was friends with Josephs and others but was not directly involved in the drama.
“People linked me to last night RHONJ episode in which Teresa falsely accuses Margaret of leaking information to ‘bloggers’,” he said. “They incorrectly identified me as ‘the blogger’ just because I’m friends with Margaret Josephs.”
“I recently appeared on a RHONJ episode in attendance at his mother’s 75th birthday party. And I have one of the biggest and most important Bravo podcasts, Behind the velvet rope“Yontef continued. “My podcast is an interview show where people from Bravo are interviewed. It’s not a gossip show where I reveal gossip or things I’ve ‘heard on the street’.” He further added : “I am not a blogger.

“Being friends with Marge and having media through the vehicle of a successful daily Bravo pod are mutually exclusive and have nothing to do with each other. It’s pure coincidence and people are definitely holding on to straws to connect the two,” Yontef pointed out.
“Margaret Josephs never disclosed anything to me,” he insisted. “We have far better things to discuss when we get together than Teresa Giudice or her current, and hopefully indefinite, relationship with Luis Ruelas.”
The former friend of ‘RHONJ’ joins David every Saturday
Yontef may not back up the gossip, but he hosts a show on Saturdays alongside Kim “D” DePaola, who seems to have his finger on the RHONJ impulse. DePaola shares her insider knowledge on RHONJ behind the scenes of Yontef’s show. For example, she revealed on last Saturday’s show that Giudice’s brother Joe Gorga is joining the RHONJ meeting only to storm the stage at some point.
DePaola said Gorga “storms off the stage. He storms off and Andy makes Teresa chase after him. She added, “I heard it was ugly. Like, really bad. Really bad. Joe Gorga is definitely above that. He is really above that.
She thought executive producer and reunion host Andy Cohen was seriously worried about Gorga. “I guess something must have happened to make Andy feel like Teresa had to go get him,” DePaola said.
