Danielle Staub has finally given up her dreams of being a full-time cast member on Real Housewives of New Jersey. After doing all the dirty work as a part-time cast member for three seasons, she announced her “retirement” from the series, which was pretty silly considering that she had zero friends in the cast. Obviously, she wasn’t going to film again, but that “choice” was hardly her own.
However, the show did resort to bringing in Danielle when the actual cast members weren’t generating enough drama, which seemingly meant that the door was always open for a Danielle Staub comeback, and by that I mean, an overly exploited and underpaid appearance or two. Welp, that ship has sailed. Danielle went in on Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen, calling out his alleged party habits in addition to claiming that Andy used her to become friends with Kelly Ripa.
After giving the
actual other cast members storylines for three years in a row without being full-time on Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle Staub walked away. She waxed poetic about how it was truly the end, but no one really believed that, or at least I didn’t. I assumed she could be very easily swayed if they asked her to stir up drama for the right price.
However, since she recently went in on Andy Cohen, that is never going to happen. She called out his alleged partying habits, wondering how his parents and son feel about his supposed recreational activities. Now, she’s claiming he used her for a famous friend, his now-BFF Kelly Ripa.
For anyone hoping that Danielle Staub would return to Real Housewives of New Jersey to wreak havoc, that ship has sailed. Why do I say that?
Danielle recently dedicated an entire podcast episode to trashing Andy Cohen, the executive producer of the show, and the spokesperson for the Bravo network. She put the nail in her own coffin with this one.
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Margaret Josephs has never been shy about discussing her cosmetic tweaks and updates. I’m assuming it’s one of the many things she got from her momma, Marge Senior. Let’s not forget back in the day when Marge got a facelift and had her son-in-law rub her feet over it. Bless.
The rest of the RHONJ cast, including children, have also been very open about sharing their surgeries. There’s Teresa Giudice, who had multiple boob jobs. Gia Giudice got her nose done and a procedure to reduce underarm sweating. Jeal. Jennifer Aydin even has a whole husband at home to do her surgical work. With the new season filming again, maybe it was time for Margaret to get some updates.
Other than Jennifer Aydin offending Melissa Gorga and
her cronies Margaret Josephs and Jackie Goldscnheider constantly, the most recent Real Housewives of New Jersey cast gets along pretty well. Without Danielle Staub’s hair-pulling antics, we are left with a pretty harmonious cast… which makes for boring TV.
They have to be adding someone else to the group, right? Nothing has been officially confirmed, but there are rumors floating around on social media along with some photo evidence.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues, more and more Bravolebrities are coming out with their own experiences contracting the virus.
Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Jennifer Aydin revealed she had the illness, along with her father and daughter. More recently, Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, Sheree Whitfield contracted it as well. Now another RHOA former star has also divulged their diagnosis.
All roads lead to Denise Richards these days. Even Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga has chimed in on Denise’s drama with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast.
Denise has caught some flack for not showing up to events and leaving early, and, apparently, Melissa’s perspective is similar to the RHOBH ladies’.
For the most part, the Housewives keep the feuding to their own casts, but every once in a while there are some heated battles between Housewives from different shows. For instance, NeNe Leakes has shared some choice words for Lisa Vanderpump. Brandi Glanville had a years-long legal battle with Joanna Krupa… and some other drama with Kenya Moore. Brandi also had some heated exchanges with Tamra Judge on social media… so maybe Brandi is a common thread in these occurrences.
But, for the most part, the Real Housewives crossovers are usually pretty harmless and entertaining. Well, except for when Bethenny Frankel critiqued the production value of Erika Jayne’s music video when she has no insight on the music industry. But, they seemed to move past that one. What would it be like if Erika made an appearance on another Real Housewives show? Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Jackie Goldschneider recently admitted that thought made her feel “a little scared.”
