Danielle Staub: “I Used To Be Close With NeNe Leakes Until She Decided She Didn’t Need Me”

Original Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub made her big comeback this season after five seasons away from Bravo. She started out on the show as a friend of Jacqueline Laurita and she left the show as an enemy of Teresa Giudice’s after Teresa flipped a table on her and chased her through a country club.

Now Danielle and Teresa are on good terms, but the same cannot be said about Danielle and Caroline Manzo, Dolores Catania, and Siggy Flicker – which is surprising to just about no one. Speaking of Danielle’s beefs, she recently revealed that she has issues with Atlanta Housewife NeNe Leakes.

Jacqueline Laurita’s Daughter Ashlee Holmes Slams Teresa For Being “Trash, Vindictive, A Hypocrite, & A Miserable Person”; Says Melissa Gorga Is Worse

 

Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey just wrapped and there are already rumors about next year’s cast. There is a lot of speculation that original cast members Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo will return to the show which would be very interesting considering their contentious relationships with Teresa Giudice. Plus fellow OG Danielle Staub is back on the scene these days so there is plenty of potential for drama.

Teresa was asked about the possibility of Jacqueline and Caroline coming back and she hurled some harsh insults their way. Now Jacqueline’s daughter (and Caroline’s niece) Ashlee Holmes is firing back.

Teresa Giudice Thinks Caroline Manzo & Jacqueline Laurita Are “Evil People” & Would Return To Real Housewives Of New Jersey “Because They Need The Money”

Now that Danielle Staub is back on Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s hard to not feel nostalgic for the good old days. The first two seasons of this show were nothing short of iconic. Sure, there have been some epic seasons since then (and some lackluster ones as well), but it’s hard not to miss the original cast.

Dina Manzo lives in California now so it makes no sense for her to be on the show, but there are some rumors swirling that Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo might return to Real Housewives of New Jersey next season. Now the only remaining OG cast member, Teresa Giudice, is sounding off on the rumors.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Reunion, Part Two

We made it. We lived through all 15 episodes of The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, and came out on the other side worn out, weary, and ready for a nice long break. Before rumors of cast shake ups for next season start swirling (as they most certainly will), let’s re-live the last gasps of this season’s wreckage.

In the second part of RHONJ’s Reunion, accusations are thrown like tables in the back room of a Manzo restaurant. Dolores Catania accuses Danielle Staub of being on drugs, Teresa Giudice (and, by association, Melissa Gorga) accuses Kim DePaola of being a White Walker madame (!!), Siggy Flicker and Margaret Josephs accuse each other of so much dirt, it’s beyond what any recap can handle. So – let’s just take a look at the highlights! Or lowlights?

Teresa Giudice & Melania Giudice Meet Rapper Fetty Wap At Concert; Attends Audriana’s Dance Competition-Photos

I never thought I would be mentioning Teresa Giudice and Fetty Wap in the same sentence, but here I am. Then again, they are both from Paterson, New Jersey, so this isn’t really that crazy. I doubt they run in the same circles, but they did actually meet when Teresa took her daughter Milania Giudice to his concert in Montclair, New Jersey. I would love to know what they talked about in between smiling for photos.

Aside from hanging with Milania at the concert, Teresa continued to be the super mom that she is and supported her youngest daughter Audriana Giudice at her dance competition. A lot has changed about Teresa since Season 1 of Real Housewives of New Jersey, but she is still (and will always be) that mom who will never miss out on the opportunity to take photos of her kids.

Siggy Flicker Explains How She Prevented Sexual Harassment From Harvey Weinstein; Shares New Thoughts On Margaret Josephs Being “Coerced”

Now-former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Siggy Flicker was a guest of Kevin Undergaro on The Tomorrow Show this week and she let her opinions fly free. Siggy shared her thoughts on a number of topics ranging from her experiences working with Harvey Weinstein to her relationship with Margaret Josephs, exiting the show after two seasons and so much more! She also reveals that she will NOT be watching RHONJ next season and also doesn’t believe the friendship between Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub is genuine.

Siggy shared that doing reality TV is hard work and that it wasn’t her choice to drag out the stupid cake story for so long. She is convinced that there wouldn’t have been any material for season 8 if it wasn’t for her.

“I’ve watched the whole season and I was shocked and I was upset. It takes a toll on you.” Reality TV is not really reality TV. It is a lot of work and you constantly have to bring up the same thing over and over and over. Do you think I want to talk about cake and a I make up a storyline: ‘let’s talk about cake for five episodes’ – I was over the cake after it happened.” She adds, “What you see is what you get with me. If there wasn’t a cake, and there wasn’t the Soggy-Siggy, there would be no season 8. The whole season was Soggy, Siggy, cake, Hitler–everything that I didn’t want stretched out to 13 episodes. I don’t know what it was, but the whole season, I was the target all season.” She does give credit to the other cast members, though, saying everyone “brought it” this season.

Melissa Gorga Wants To Collaborate With Erika Jayne; Shares Where She Stands With Former Cast Mates Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, & Amber Marchese

There are few things that I love more than a Real Housewife attempting a music career. If the song is great, then that gives me another bop to listen to. If the song is terrible, it’s entertaining for a totally different reason. I will listen to it just as much (if not more). It’s really a win-win for the super fans like myself.

That’s why I miss Melissa Gorga’s early days on Real Housewives of New Jersey when she wanted to be a pop star and her husband built a recording studio in their basement. These days she is caught up with her clothing story Envy and all of that restaurant drama, but if she ever wanted to record another song, I would be all for it.

Jill Zarin and Bobby Zarin

Unfortunately Bobby Zarin lost his longtime battle with cancer. Everyone on Real Housewives of New York City and the fans at home have always had a great love and respect for Bobby. His wife, ex-RHONY star Jill Zarin has received some support from her fellow Real Housewives and she has been very open about that in the media.

Bravo even filmed the New York City Housewives coming together for Bobby’s memorial. Current Real Housewives of New York cast members Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, and Dorinda Medley (along with her boyfriend John Mahdessian) attended the memorial. RHONY alum Kelly Bensimon and Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub were there as well to pay their respects to Bobby and support Jill.
