Danielle Staub Real Housewives Of New Jersey

Danielle Staub Alleges That Joe Gorga Is Running “A Ponzi Scheme;” Says “I’m Going To Call Him Out”

This has been an interesting season on Real Housewives of New Jersey. There haven’t been any sightings of Danielle Staub, yet Danielle is staying up to date on all the drama. What a shock.

During the Season 11 premiere, Jackie Goldschneider threw a party for her husband, Evan Goldschneider’s, birthday. While RHONJ co-star Teresa Giudice was busy spreading the rumor that Evan was cheating, newbie Michelle Pais spilled some tea of her own. She told Jennifer Aydin that Joe Gorga owed “tens of thousands of dollars” to her husband, Jon Steingraber.

Joe Gorga wrote a book about how to succeed in life and business, titled The Gorga Guide To Success. That means both Melissa Gorga and Joe have published books. I’ll just let that sink in for a moment. Jon spoke at Joe’s “Growing with Gorga” lecture and claimed that he was never compensated.

Jennifer finally told Melissa about what Michelle said about her husband, and Melissa was furious. Melissa’s friend, Margaret Josephs, dismissed the rumors as “inaccurate and, again, not true at all.”

At Teresa’s tequila-fueled pool party, Joe Gorga confronted Jon about his statements that Joe owed him some cash. In the end, Jon said that there was a miscommunication at some point, and that Joe didn’t owe him any money. That still sounds sketchy to me.

Back in February of 2020, Joe Gorga posted photos of home renovations and flips that he did on Instagram. Unfortunately for Joe, he didn’t actually do all those renovations. One homeowner said that although her home was pictured, Joe didn’t do the work. The photos of that house were taken down, but fans were left questioning if Joe Gorga actually did the other flips he had pictured.

In an interview on the S’More Live Happy Hour, which is a series from the dating app S’More, Danielle sounded off on Joe Gorga’s business dealings. Danielle stated that she is “the only person on The Real Housewives of New Jersey that didn’t commit crimes in [her] adult life.”

RHONJ viewers know that Teresa and her husband, Joe Giudice, were hit with federal fraud charges and both went away to jail camp. Of course, Danielle’s scandalous past also came to light during Season 1 of the franchise.

Danielle claimed that Teresa’s brother, Joe Gorga, is also somehow involved in criminal activity. The host asked Danielle if Joe Gorga “has a Ponzi scheme happening right now?” Danielle responded, “100% – he is working it and he is trying to hide behind it but I’m going to call him out and call him right to the table,” the RHONJ alum stated.

“It’s not right what he’s doing … he didn’t flip that house, he doesn’t do anything without other people doing the work, he just takes the credit for it – not paying people is part of their scam,” Danielle alleged. There is certainly no love lost between Melissa and Danielle. Danielle even insinuated that Melissa somehow played a role in putting Joe Giudice and Teresa behind bars.

All Danielle can do is comment from the sidelines since she announced in January of 2020 that she will never be a Housewife again. But don’t worry, I  don’t think that Danielle will ever stop sharing her opinion.
