The drama between Danielle Staub and Marty Caffrey, her husband of 2 months, has escalated. She went from admitting to “difficulties” in their marriage, to having not one, but two birthday events without her man. Those are all debatable red flags, but there’s nothing at all debatable about Marty’s latest statements about their relationship.
He wants out. Not only that, but he has lot of defamatory accusations aimed toward the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member.
On July 28, Marty told RadarOnline, “Marty Caffrey is divorcing Danielle Staub.” Hopefully he did not actually speak in the third person and representative just said that on his behalf.
In a statement that was released to RadarOnline on July 31, Marty shared his very detailed perspective on the relationship. He claimed to suffer from “financial, verbal, and emotional abuse.” He also claimed that he cancelled his credit cards after the “abuse” suffered by his bank account.
His noticeable absence from Danielle’s birthday was no coincidence. He explained, “Her birthday party was the tipping point. I was left completely in the dark. I wasn’t allowed to know who was invited. My family and friends were left out until the last minute only because I kept pressing the issue.”
He continued to rant about the birthday party: “There was no intention of including my family or friends. But I was expected to pay for it. Which I refused to do. This arrogant, disrespectful, presumptuous and entitled attitude I find disturbing. All of this is why I did not attend. You want to throw a self-indulgence, attention seeking party for yourselves, want me to pay for it, but I’m not allowed to know anything about it or to ask any questions? What world do you live in?”
Marty even took some credit for Danielle’s reality TV comeback. He said, “I bailed Danielle out of a really tough situation. I gave her a platform to be relevant again. Because I believed in her and loved her. I still love her and still believe in her. And her payback is nothing but financial, verbal and emotional abuse. I’ve tried dozens of times to talk to Danielle about this but she just buries her head in the sand.” There’s no better way to alleviate marital difficulties than by issuing public statements….. right?
He had even more to say to RadarOnline. Danielle’s ex claimed, “There is never one question asked to me in that house. Except things like ‘can you go pick up stuff at the market’, or ‘make sure you Venmo this or that.’ I never hear ‘What’s new with you?’ ‘How’s your family?’ Nothing. It gets back to this unbelievable level of entitlement and narcissism that exists.” Damn. Those are some fighting words right there. That doesn’t sound like something a guy would say who is trying to reconcile his marital difficulties.<
So why did he marry her if it’s as awful as he says? He said, “It wasn’t always that way but when she became relevant again, with my help, she changed. There’s never any time for just ‘us’.”
In that same RadarOnline interview, Marty claimed that Danielle “didn’t like” his children, a sentiment that he explained in an interview with Us Weekly. He. Had. Time. Marty said, “I kept on dating her, proposed to her and then married her. She won! But she offers no path forward to allow my children back into my life. Yes, I see them, but I do it alone and not with my wife. There has to be a middle ground.” Why were the kids out of his life? There are so many unanswered questions and so much drama that goes beyond “difficulties” in a two-month marriage.
A representative to Danielle responded to Marty’s allegations with a statement to Us Weekly: “Danielle is very disappointed that Marty spent time composing a three-page statement for the media but won’t sit down and talk with her about the situation. She is also disappointed that he seems much more concerned about press coverage than he does about his marriage.”
How much of this will be shown on Season 9 of Real Housewives of New Jersey? Danielle is not a expected to be a full-time cast member (yet again), but she did reportedly film the wedding for the show and she had Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Margaret Josephs as bridesmaids. It would make sense for her relationship to be a part of her story line, but who knows? Last season her proposal wasn’t even a part of the regular episodes. Instead, it was shown in a “Secrets Revealed” episode that aired after the reunion episodes wrapped up.
