Last season, Danielle Staub was
the cause of front and center for all the drama on Real Housewives of New Jersey. The Bridezilla of Bimini walked down the aisle with Marty Caffrey on May 5, 2018. RHONJ co-stars Margaret Josephs, Teresa Giudice, and Melissa Gorga were all bridesmaids at their beach wedding. All the wedding drama, and Danielle’s insane demands, were filmed for Season 9.
Within months, their union dissolved in a blizzard of accusations and restraining orders. The duo was officially divorced in February. And one week later, Danielle was engaged again. She was on to lucky fiancé 21– Oliver Maier. Oliver is the Duke of Provence, which may have given Danielle a title when they wed. Well, besides the “prostitution whore” moniker Teresa gave her in Season 1.
Season 9 of Real Housewives of New Jersey was epic on so many levels. You had simmering tension between Melissa Gorga and her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice. There was outright aggression when Margaret Josephs pushed Danielle Staub’s then-husband, Marty Caffrey, into Jennifer Aydin’s swimming pool so he could cool off. And there was that girls’ trip to Cabo where Margaret hurled a glass of wine at arch-enemy Danielle, resulting in a melee. At the reunion, Teresa announced that she will be splitting with her husband, Joe Giudice, if he is deported. That is a lot to handle.
So, what does Season 10 of RHONJ have in store for us? So far, we have learned of an argument between Melissa and Jennifer at a restaurant in the Hamptons. Danielle and Margaret were also involved in a fight at Steven Dann’s store in Great Neck. Supposedly, Margaret poured water over Danielle’s head. Danielle retaliated by lighting Margaret’s purse on fire. Pretty soon, the Jersey Housewives will be banned at all restaurants and will be filming in fast-food joints. Or someplace where there is no glassware, no open flames, and the tables are bolted to the floor.
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!
Season 9 of Real Housewives of New Jersey was epic on so many levels. Bridezilla Danielle Staub got married to Marty Caffrey. And then divorced him a few
minutes months later. Margaret Josephs pushed Marty into Jennifer Aydin’s pool. Teresa Giudice dealt with her husband Joe Giudice’s possible deportation by dropping a bomb at the RHONJ reunion. If her husband is deported, they will split up.
During the New Jersey ladies’ trip to Cabo last season, all the claws came out. Margaret compared Jennifer’s plump lips to “a monkey’s a**hole.” And at one crazy dinner, Danielle screamed at Margaret that if she was a better person, she would get to visit with her grandkids. Aren’t kids supposed to be off-limits? Margaret tossed a glass of wine at Danielle. So, Danielle retaliated by throwing a glass, and hitting Melissa Gorga. Melissa thought that Jennifer threw the glass at her, but tequila-monster Jennifer smashed a glass and held it up to Melissa. And Teresa somehow backed up Danielle over her sister-in-law and her best friend Dolores Catania.
In more serious developments, Teresa revealed at the reunion that if her husband, Joe Giudice, is deported to Italy, that they will divorce. Joe finished serving his prison sentence and was transferred to ICE custody on March 14, 2019. He is waiting to hear the results of his appeal. And Teresa has been spending some quality time with a much-younger man, and possible boyfriend, Blake Schreck. Teresa denies that they are dating. Apparently, they just enjoy holding hands in public.
Real Housewives of New Jersey fans should admire Danielle Staub’s hustle. Her
fiasco wedding to Marty Caffrey was filmed for Season 9, even though Danielle was once again only a Friend of The Housewives. Jersey girls Teresa Giudice, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga were part of the bridal party, and witnesses to Danielle’s bridezilla demands.
The doomed wedding was quickly followed by an acrimonious divorce, which was finally settled in February of 2019. In what seems like record time, Danielle was not only dating, but back in a serious relationship. Maybe now Danielle can be upgraded to full-time Housewife?
Andy Cohen has a dream. A dream that one day, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks will meet a man. And that man… will be royalty, y’all. Thankfully, that
long shot dream of Andy’s might be coming true. Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Danielle Staub is no Cinderella. She’s no Sleeping Beauty. When I think of Snow White, Danielle definitely does not come to mind. But for Andy, she might be his only hope for a Jersey fairy-tale. Unless being thrown in a pool counts as happily ever after.
On the heels of a divorce from ex-husband, Marty Caffery, Danielle has met another man, and this guy has an impressive title! No, it isn’t Most Gullible Person Alive, although that would probably apply. This new relationship is enough to give Andy hope that one day the often-engaged housewife will go from Prostitution Whore Danielle to Duchess Danielle.
Part 2 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion ended with Andy Cohen asking Teresa Giudice about the future of her relationship with Joe Giudice. If he does end up getting deported after prison, will Teresa stick with him? Or is she not down to have a long distance relationship with someone living in Italy.
Andy also asks Teresa if she’s been faithful this whole time Joe has been in jail. Unfortunately (for the viewers), this was taped before those photos came out. You know the photos of Teresa holding hands with a much younger man. The guy that was supposedly just “helping her to the car” in Miami.
