Danielle Staub

RHONJ-Dolores-Catania

The non-relationship relationship between Dolores Catania and Frank Catania will always fascinate the Real Housewives of New Jersey fandom. Even though they are not together and haven’t been for some time, he is basically her RHONJ spouse since we never get to see her actual boyfriend on the show.

RHONJ-Teresa-Giudice

Oklahoma can finally breathe a much-deserved sigh of relief because the Real Housewives of New Jersey have finally retreated back to the Garden State. The festering animosity between sisters-in-law Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice is boiling barely beneath the surface. Newbie Jackie Goldschneider is seemingly choosing sides. Margaret Josephs is glad to give her friend and OK hostess a break after invading her home with rude, spray-tanned banshees. Of course, she cannot wait to tour Jennifer Aydin’s gauche Paramus Palace of Potties. SIXTEEN BATHROOMS (screamed in my best Dana “TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND!” voice)…

Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Danielle Staub is Battling Rheumatoid Arthritis

Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub has been steeped in drama again, both on and off camera. While we are watching the countdown to Danielle’s dream wedding on RHONJ Season 9, her marriage to Marty Caffrey has already imploded. Her ex also listed her house for sale without telling her. Yikes!

Most fans didn’t realize that she has also been fighting an insidious medical condition: rheumatoid arthritis. Danielle decided to share her life-altering diagnosis with her Housewife fans.

Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Bathrooms And Bull

If the Real Housewives of New Jersey haven’t been banned from the fly-over states, it’s a corn shucking miracle! Poor Oklahoma is still dealing with the weaves and wackiness from last week’s episode as the ladies head off to a tense dinner. Margaret Josephs is happy to hear that Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga seemed to have smoothed over their argument…although Tre is unaware of how riled up Joe Gorga is after hearing Melissa’s rehash of the nasty breakfast. At the restaurant, Jennifer Aydin is talking about her ginormous house. She has to have an extra “wife” to cook and clean her seven bedroom house. She even has cameras in every room and she does random bag checks before the nanny heads out for the evening. Jackie Goldschneider finds it frighteningly hilarious that Jennifer trusts the nanny with her children but not with her collection of Chanel.

To change the subject, Margaret enlists the ladies in a game of two truths and a lie. Her statements: she used to fool around with her high school gym teacher, she’s only done cocaine once, and her ex-husband used to lock her in a closet when she made him angry. The women are surprised to hear her lie was the gym teacher. They can’t imagine feisty Margaret putting up with that in her marriage. No one believes Dolores Catania when she states she had sex with her ex-husband/roommate Frank Catania last week. Jennifer goes for shock value with tales of playing the submissive to her bestie’s dominatrix, getting a butt lift, and pooping herself in traffic. She was lying about the butt lift. Jennifer was wild before she met her ultra-conservative husband.

 

Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap:Today I am thankful for witnessing the most awkward, fish-out-of-water weekend getaway in the history of Bravo. I was hoping for a Real Housewives of New Jersey crossover with Sweet Home. All I got was the preemptive simmer of a Teresa Giudice/Melissa Gorga meltdown. However, I am so grateful for last night’s RHONJ episode, and all the wind that wound their weaves. Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!

The ladies are prepping for their southern safari with the requisite amount of leopard print and rhinestones. Margaret Josephs is thrilled to work on her Hospital Heroes children’s hospital gown line with her longtime friend Polly. Teresa calls her brother Joe Gorga asks him to spend time with the amazing Giacinto Gorga, aka Nonno, while she and Melissa are out of town. Joe is frustrated with his sister’s directives. He’s far too busy with work. He urges a reluctant Melissa to go stand up to Tre in his absence. She doesn’t want to get in between the siblings. She’s been there, done that, bought the t-shirt, and has the stripper rumors to boot!

Jennifer Aydin Says It’s “Totally Unreasonable” That Danielle Staub Doesn’t Margaret Josephs Hanging Out With Dolores Catania

We are only two episodes into Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9. Even so, it is clear as day that the demise of Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub’s friendship is imminent. Margaret told Danielle that she accepted an invitation from Dolores Catania to go hatchet throwing, as strange as that sounds.

Danielle and Dolores have residual beef for Season 8. Margaret and Dolores did not get along last season either. Nevertheless, they are trying to make amends and start new. The same cannot be said for Danielle and Dolores. Danielle completely flipped out when Margaret calmly informed her about the party. It was honestly pretty uncomfortable to watch.

Dolores Catania Sees “Something Serious Brewing” Between Teresa Giudice & Melissa Gorga; Looking Forward To Friendship With Margaret Josephs

As much as things change on Real Housewives of New Jersey, a lot stays the same. Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga buried the hatchet two seasons ago. Now there’s tension again. In contrast, Dolores Catania and Margaret Josephs went from burying the hatchet to throwing some during the last episode. While the sisters-in-law have some some familial drama ahead, Dolores and Margaret are getting along better than ever. Will it last though?
It’s a great thing that Dolores and Margaret are finally cool. Just don’t say that to Danielle Staub. She is not on board with their new friendship. At all. During the last episode, she even asked Margaret, “What do you two really have in common? You cheated on your husband and she got cheated on?” Overreaction much?

Margaret Josephs Calls Danielle Staub A “BackStauber”

Last year, fans were living for Margaret Josephs’ and Danielle Staub’s friendship. That’s about to change with the current Real Housewives of New Jersey season. There’s some obvious friction between the two of them. Will the fans pick sides? Or will the viewers be able to love them both?

Only time will tell. Two episodes in, the viewers haven’t witnessed outright drama between Margaret and Danielle, but there has been plenty of shade and tension. Margaret discussed the situation with Andy Cohen during last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live.
