Real Housewives of New Jersey fans have known that Danielle Staub’s given name was Beverly Ann Merrill. Who could ever forget that infamous Cop Without A Badge moment from Season 1? This isn’t exactly news. Still, Danielle was clearly shook when her BFF-turned-enemy Margaret Josephs called her “Beverly” during the Season 9 RHONJ reunion.
Jennifer Aydin was out of the loop on that one. She told Danielle that she had no idea her real name was actually “Beverly,” which majorly upset Danielle. Aside from brainwashing Teresa Giudice, Danielle has no storyline this season. This makes sense since she’s a part-time cast member. Again. For the third year in a row.
Danielle ranted about the Beverly of it all during a recent Instagram Story video. She told her followers, “That name that keeps being thrown around, by the people that know what the significance is behind it, was used by my sexual abuser that would molest me and rape me as a child. I don’t know if you still think that’s funny. But, for those of you that do, shame on you.” Margaret and Jennifer can be shady and stir the pot, but I highly doubt they intentionally referenced Danielle’s alleged sexual abuse by mentioning her birth name.
Nevertheless, Danielle declared, “If you still support Margaret and Jennifer and if you think that’s a really funny story to tell and that’s the reason I can’t be at somebody’s party or not invited to somebody’s party after all that I did to defend [Margaret] when she didn’t fit in with the group.” In case anyone forgot, Melissa Gorga did not invite Danielle to
film at her birthday party. This was something that awkwardly came up in person.
Danielle continued, “And, think back, how did Margaret get into the group and solidified? Me. I take it all on and I’m not doing it anymore.” When did Margaret need help to fit in with the group? Most of the RHONJ ladies took to her right away.
Danielle teased, “So, enjoy the rest of the season. All they do is talk about me. And, if you really want to hear the truth, I guess you’ll ask me. I don’t know what else to say, other than there’s absolutely nothing I can do about the way that I’m treated by [that] group of mean women that are acting quite frankly like they’re just God’s greatest gifts. They’re not. Neither am I, but I never mean girled any of them. I’ve never done anything to them.” Really? Danielle has never done anything to them? What about when she and Melissa plotted against Teresa before Mel joined the cast? How about when she treated Margaret like shit with all of her bridezilla antics?

Danielle concluded, “Just because they’re telling a story that you haven’t seen play out, it’s just a lie. And the rest of them are swearing to it. Still a lie.” Alright, then.
