There’s a lot of drama happening on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but right now, Margaret Josephs’ mind is elsewhere.

The blonde beauty just suffered a devastating loss, sharing that her furbaby Bella has passed away.

Bella quickly became a staple on the show, as the adorable teacup Yorkie always appeared in scenes that were filmed at Margaret’s home.

Sadly, Season 14 will be the last time we see little Bella on our screens, as she’s now crossed the rainbow bridge.

Bella’s passing comes at a time when Margaret is still mourning the death of her ex-husband and best friend, Jan Josephs.

Jan died unexpectedly in 2022 and in a past episode, we saw Margaret still trying to grapple with his death — admitting that it took a toll on her mental health and her marriage to husband Joe Benigno.

Just when Margaret was starting to move on from the loss of Jan, she’s been hit with another tragedy.

“Our living angel baby Bella has gone over the rainbow bridge. Our world and hearts are broken,” wrote Margaret in her caption. “She was the perfect, happiest little bff in the world.”

Margaret told her followers that everyone loved the always-cuddly and playful Bella and that she was always there to brighten up her “darkest days.”

“A piece of me died along with her. She was a rescue but in reality, she saved us 💔🥹🐾🌈,” added Margaret.
