Once upon a time on Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle Staub and Marty Caffrey were embroiled in a messy divorce. Their separation happened just two months into their marriage. Their divorce was finalized in February of 2019.
Fast forward to this season, and the exes are quite a bit friendlier. Much to Margaret Joseph’s horror, she was told by Teresa Giudice that not only are Danielle and Marty living in the same house, but they had sex. Yikes!
Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub are at WAR on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The fallout from last week’s episode will likely last all season. It’s a bloodbath in the Garden State. Teresa Giudice is directly in the middle, and her friendship with Marge is in big jeopardy. Teresa’s somewhat blind loyalty to Danielle is mind boggling. What is she doing here? Why does she want to be her ally so badly?
It’s also only a matter of time before some of the other women have a falling out. For the most part everyone’s getting along right now. That’s going to change. It wouldn’t be Housewives if it wasn’t going to. It’s probably a safe bet that it’ll be Jennifer Aydin who finds herself at odds with someone. Will it be Jackie Goldschneider again? Although someone new would be more exciting.
No one can ever accuse Bravo’s Andy Cohen of not dreaming big. He has his sights on nabbing a royally big name to join Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Andy already has one Housewife with a title. He has Countess Luann de Lesseps on Real Housewives of New York.
If Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub had made it down the aisle with her 21st fiancé, Olivier Maier, she would have received a title as well. Danielle would have been a Duchess if she had successfully
trapped wed Olivier, who is the Duke of Provence.
Veteran Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers will never forget the big fuss Danielle Staub made when Jacqueline Laurita’s (then-teenage) daughter Ashlee Malleo yanked on her extensions at the country club.
It’s especially relevant nowadays since the episode just aired when Danielle channeled Ashlee by pulling on Margaret Josephs‘ ponytail. Danielle upped the ante though. She also poured the contents of Margaret’s purse into a lit candle. So, of course, this new content has led to more shit talking between Danielle, Jacqueline, and Ashlee. Gotta love that cling for relevance. Nevertheless, Danielle allegedly took things too far. Yet again. Color me shocked.
Danielle Staub has gone out of her way to stay relevant with the hopes of securing a full-time spot on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Unfortunately for her, Bravo didn’t want to buy the cow if they could get the milk for free. Instead, Danielle got married, got engaged again, befriended Teresa Giudice, and pulled Margaret Josephs‘ hair allfor a part-time “Friend of the Housewives” spot on RHONJ.
She doesn’t get a tagline. She doesn’t get confessionals. And, of course, she doesn’t get what matters most: that full-time paycheck. Now, that she and Teresa are on the outs, there’s no chance that she will be on the show next season. I mean, come on, every other cast member cannot stand her. So, instead of just fading away or getting fired, Danielle recently announced her retirement from the show during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live. Yes, this is such a moot point since she hasn’t been a real cast member since Season 2 and she has zero relationships with current cast members, but here we are. It seems like she’s took a cue from the Jill Zarin playbook. Jill is constantly teasing a return to RHONY, but she too recently said she’s “done with the show,” although we all know she’d sprint to the set if production ever called her. This is because the show is done with her, not the other way around.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey are the gift that keeps on giving! Last week’s episode was such a RIDE. From Margaret Josephs dumping water on Danielle Staub, to THAT hair pull. These women are violent, and we can’t get enough. That entire final five minutes was so legendary. If you like heart racing edge of your seat drama, you were loving it.
The chaos that these ladies were causing in that store is mind boggling. Everyone was looking on like WHAT IN THE ACTUAL F**K? Where do Margaret and Danielle even go from here? They can’t be friends. There’s no way. Danielle called her trout mouth, and Margaret called
Beverly Danielle a prostitute. Those are fighting words in Jersey. The women of Beverly Hills or OC could NEVER. The fallout from this is going to be pure golden entertainment.
Tonight’s Real Housewives of New Jersey episode starts right where the last one ended: with that epically horrendous hair pull. Everyone in their right mind sided with Margaret Josephs after Danielle Staub dumped the contents of Margaret’s purse into a lit candle and pulled on Margaret’s ponytail.
And then there’s Teresa Giudice. She thinks the real crime is that Margaret poured water on Danielle. Oh, girl. What is going on in that mind of yours?
Not much. Melissa Gorga, Dolores Catania, Jackie Goldschneider, and Jennifer Aydin are there to support Margaret, but not Teresa. She still thinks this is all Margaret’s fault. I cannot wait for the tables to turn (pun intended). I can’t wait to see what Danielle does that finally turns Teresa against her, but that’s not happening tonight.
Real Housewives of New Jersey is known for its drama and tension during cast dinners. Just think back to Season 1, and Teresa Giudice’s legendary table-flipping rant against Danielle Staub.
Now the RHONJ ladies can add a clothing boutique to the list of public places where they
went nuts and are no longer welcome have had an argument turn physical. We know that someone pulled Margaret Joseph’s ponytail during a heated argument, but now we get to see exactly what transpired.
