She hasn’t had much of a story line in years. Unless you want to count her very short lived search for a possible third sister after a psychic reading. Or her supposed desire to want just one more baby, which came out of nowhere. And also went nowhere. One of the major selling points she tries bringing to the table is her hot and heavy marriage with husband, Joe Gorga. He’s been a favorite since he joined the show and let’s just say, I feel like she rides his adorable little coattails. She even wrote a book about how they keep their marriage spicy. Or something like that.
Gizelle and Karen have battled it out to be the Queen B of RHOP since the beginning. And their feud has so many iconic moments, from Gizelle’s #FreeUncleBen shirt to the Grand Dame’s attack on Jamal Bryantwho lives in the phone. We had the mime scene. The birthday party seat fiasco. And countless arguments during reunions. It’s a feud that I will never tire of and never truly pick one side of — I love it for what it is, and I never want either of them to leave RHOP.
Not that anyone asked, but my reaction to Melissa Gorga and her husband’s “marital issues” was one giant eyeroll. Obviously children of the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars would interpret and process things in a much different way, but you might be hard-pressed to find an adult who actually believed that mess. I’m sure Melissa’s sister tucked away in a cave somewhere would agree.
So what does Danielle have to do with Erika? Nothing really. Danielle’s only real contribution to the conversation was talking about that one time she was on Watch What Happens Live with Erika. Oh and they both worked at Shakers. Just not at the same time. Riveting, I know. But Danielle just can’t pass up any opportunity to talk about anything really. So I’m sure she jumped at the chance to trash her old castmates from Real Housewives of New Jersey. For someone who hasn’t been on the show in years (and years), she sure has a lot to say.
The documentary itself was very revealing about the ins and outs of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s lavish lifestyle that is allegedly built off of the trauma of others. Tom is being accused of stealing millions from victims of horrific incidents to fund EJ’s glam squads and private jets. And even though she’s being accused of spending money her soon-to-be ex-husband made illegally, Erika is proving she’s a stone-cold villain by prioritizing, well, herself. Even though she’s still flying in PJs and wearing designer outfits everywhere she goes. And for once, the RHOBH mean girls squad is giving EJ a pass. Where’s the outrage? Don’t worry, Danielle is making up for that by talking even more about Erika’s allegations.
