At the end of Wednesday's explosive episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey during which Margaret Josephs and Jennifer Aydin darn-near clawed each other's eyes out, one of the husbands quipped, "Meals bring out the worst in them."

Turns out, it's actually Twitter.

As footage aired of the ladies arguing over their marriages, how one should treat their husband, alcohol intake and more, they took to social media to continue the bashing – with an "ashamed" Margaret even calling out Bravo, the show's network.

The on-air dispute began after Jennifer called out Margaret's "embarrassing" treatment of her husband the night prior. Offended, Marge barked back that if anyone should be "embarrassed," it should be Jen over her "sloppy" drinking habits. That comment prompted Jen to note that, while Marge may not drink, she too can be sloppy – like that time she slept with her boss. The cast gasped in unison.

Earlier this season, Josephs emotionally revealed to her co-stars that she was "pressured" into having sex with a much-older boss early in her fashion career, acknowledging that it was "a very different time." She explained she wanted to share her story to help others feel empowered if ever in similar situations.

But Aydin – a stay-at-home mom of five who's married to a plastic surgeon – felt differently, noting she would "never say that out loud." She wondered why Josephs wouldn't take the tale "to the grave."

"Victim shaming is an all time low," Marge tweeted in response to Wednesday's scene. "I shared a vulnerable moment that was very painful."

On camera, however, she was absolutely heated. "You know why you never fight with your husband? 'Cause he's your f--king meal ticket for your whole f--king family!" Marge shouted at Jen, later adding, "He's your f--king sugar daddy. You're gonna tolerate any f--kng bulls--t. You're gonna stay home and be a f--king concubine!"

"Concubine??? You're gonna pull a muscle with all that reaching," Jennifer tweeted in response. "You guys have gotten to know me and Bill- I think you all know who wears the pants in this relationship."

Responding to Jennifer seen telling her co-stars that Margaret was guilty of "sleeping her way to the top," the latter tweeted, "I've been my own boss at my own company for 21 years. So not sure who I'd be sleeping with to get here." She added, "At least I'm at the top. You only slept your way to Paramus."

"You're at the top??" Aydin fired back on Twitter. "You must have some short people around you- and you've slept with EVERYONE ELSE!" She continued, "And you're slutty and everyone knows it- Don't start none, won't be none!!!"

She also wondered, "So she can say I 'Slept my way to Paramus' but I can't call her slutty???"

Aydin later clarified, "And This tweet is not even about her boss- it's about all her other sex story she tells- don't act like this is the first you're ever heard- enough already! We get it! Plus: she started."

But by that point, Josephs had already brought Bravo into the mix.

"This is what victim shaming looks like and women stay silent," she posted. "We can all say nasty things about the episode but this is an all time low. Especially with this current climate. @BravoTV I am ashamed."
