It seems that Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Danielle Staub and her newest fiancé Oliver Maier, have been receiving some unwanted attention from his ex. Of course, drama always finds Danielle. Why isn’t she a full-time Jersey Housewife?
Last season on RHONJ, Danielle’s antics leading up to her wedding to Marty Caffrey would make a bridezilla blush. Shortly thereafter, the couple separated but continued their acrimonious behavior leading up to their divorce. The ink on Danielle and Marty’s divorce papers was still wet when Danielle announced that she was engaged to businessman Oliver. It happened one week after her divorce was finalized. You must admire Danielle’s ability to
trap men find love so often. After all, as Teresa Giudice pointed out in Season 1, Danielle had already been engaged 19 times. If you add in Marty and Oliver, that means she has been engaged a whopping 21 times. That is table-flipping unbelievable!
People reported that the duo became engaged during a trip to St. Barth. They planned on picking up Danielle’s newest diamond sparkler and then hitting the courthouse in New York City to tie the knot. Talk about a whirlwind courtship! Danielle’s new man is the director of a private equity firm based out of New York City. Oliver, who is both French and German, is also apparently the Duke of Provence. So, Danielle will become a duchess when the two wed. I am sure that Danielle will torture her RHONJ co-stars with talk about her new title.
But not so fast! Danielle and Oliver decided to put their nuptials on hold. Danielle told TMZ that her ring needed to be sized, and that her daughters were less than thrilled with her wedding plans. She later posted to her Instagram Story to dispel rumors that the two were over. “To put the rumors that he and I are not together, here I am with my love.” Danielle said. Oliver said, “I love you.” Danielle responded, “There you go.” Yikes! Oliver looks like he is brainwashed in that video.
According to Page Six, Oliver filed for a restraining order against his ex-girlfriend, Gina Curko. Oliver stated that Gina had threatened to kill both him and Danielle. Apparently, Gina wants to get back together with Oliver. Perhaps death threats aren’t the right way to go about it? Gina has been ordered to stay away from Oliver and Danielle, and cannot communicate with either of them. On June 25, Oliver, Gina, and Danielle will go before the court to see if the restraining order will be made permanent.
There is also some confusion as to when Oliver officially started seeing Danielle, and when he broke up with Gina. Gina and Danielle were friends, which is how Danielle met Oliver. This whole situation is beyond messy!
In February of 2019, Oliver issued a statement to Page Six to set the record straight about the cheating rumors. “I ended my relationship with Gina because it was not working. My current relationship with Danielle did not have anything to do with that decision. I have no interest in a current or future relationship with Gina,” Oliver said. “Since our relationship ended she has been harassing me and my family, as well as trying to use this situation as an opportunity to get on the show and promote her boutique. She needs to stop this childish behavior, act like an adult and move on with her life.”
Season 10 of RHONJ is filming now, so maybe we will see some of this craziness play out. There are already reports that co-star, and former bestie, Margaret Josephs and Danielle had an argument that allegedly resulted in water being thrown and Danielle lighting Margaret’s purse on fire. One thing is for sure–Oliver better watch out if he is near any pools when Margaret is around. He just may end up taking an unwanted dip like Marty did.
