The Real Housewives of New Jersey has been super dramatic, but there is definitely some dead weight if I’m keeping it real. You can fill in the blanks on this one, but in my opinion Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Jacqueline Laurita, all make great TV, and then there are the other ladies…. I mean, people actually attacked Melissa’s 21-year-old store manager Derek Zagami, who was not even present, to get a story line. And now he is not working there anymore, is that a coincidence?
Really though. As much as I love this show (and I’m obsessed) the casting is just not 100%. Sure, I like the other cast members as people, but that doesn’t mean that they have what it takes to be entertaining on reality television. So I would actually love it if Danielle Staub returned. And believe it or not, Teresa actually agrees that Danielle should make a comeback. Wait. What?

I’m not at all shocked that the infamous Kim DePaola was doing whatever she could to be back on this show and promote her store. It was so obvious that she had zero concern over Melissa or Teresa when she told Jacqueline and Siggy Flicker gossip about Derek. If she was really concerned, she would have sent a message to the sisters-in-law, but that would not get her camera time, so Kim D knows better than to do that.
Right after that episode aired, Derek posted on Instagram that he is leaving Melissa’s store Envy. I have no idea if it has to do with Kim D talking shit or if he is genuinely ready to move on to another phase in his career, but Derek wrote, “Today I am announcing I will no longer be working as the Store Manager at Envy by Melissa Gorga. I have decided to move on in my career. Building Envy with Melissa and Jackie was an incredible experience, I wish Envy and the team behind the scenes who make it happen nothing but success on the journey!”
There’s zero indication of bitterness in that post, so I’m curious about Kim D’s allegations and if Melissa ever investigated them. I hope not. Kim D cannot ruin another thing. Hopefully this kid just found another career opportunity that suits his interests.
But anyway, this should not have even been a story line. Kim D, Jacqueline, and Siggy stirring the pot is way too desperate. They need to have someone who really knows what she’s doing when it comes to riling people up on reality TV and that would be Danielle Staub. Her words and actions during the first two Real Housewives of New Jersey seasons were iconic reality TV. Let’s bring her back.
I mean, even Teresa (Danielle’s nemesis back in the day – aka the reason Tre infamously flipped that table back in season one) can get behind this idea. A Twitter user asked Teresa, “What do you think about bringing Danielle Staub back on RHONJ?” Surprisingly, Teresa quoted the tweet and wrote, “Sure, why not. I would love to see
@daniellestaub come back to #RHONJ if she wanted to.” Wow. Hell has really frozen over.
But wait, it actually gets better. Danielle quoted Teresa’s reply and wrote, “Thank you
@Teresa_Giudice I would love to return to RHONJ. I would great to come home to @Bravotv.” She even threw a red heart emoji in there! But yes, once again, I’m not done with this one. Teresa actually ended up retweeting Danielle’s post. All of the fans who have watched this show from the start know that these two agreeing on something is a BIG deal.
Let’s get rid of the filler and add someone – Danielle Staub – who is actually entertaining to this show – cough cough Andy Cohen.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK DANIELLE SHOULD RETURN TO RHONJ? DO YOU THINK KIM D’S ALLEGATIONS HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH DEREK LEAVING MELISSA’S STORE?
