Marge Sr. RHONJ

Fans who have had the absolute pleasure of getting to know Marge Sr., will not quickly forget this woman. If you thought Margaret was sassy and mouthy, wait till you meet her mom, and if you thought Margaret was a bit of a drinker, well...wait till you meet Marge! The matriarch isn't just a partier, however. She also helps her daughter run her beauty and lifestyle brand, Macbeth Collection, and together they are slaying in the glam game.

How Old is Marge Sr.?

According to an article by Bravo, Marge. Sr. was listed as being 73 in Feb. 2019, meaning she's either 73 or 74.

As reported by Romper, Marge Sr. hasn't had an easy life. As a child, she fled Hungary to escape a communist regime and came to America. She married Margaret's father when she was very young and divorced him shortly after, so Marge and Margaret are only around 20 years apart.

In this week's episode, Margaret brought up the fact that Marge Sr. reminds her a lot of her childhood, where her mom wasn't always there for her. She recalled her mom leaving her to go out partying often, which still hurts her as an adult.

Make sure to keep watching Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10, airing every Wednesday night on Bravo.
