RHONJ season 8 casting is in the works, and as of now the only new name in the mix is Danielle Staub. No one wants Danielle back less than Jacqueline Laurita, and as a result Jacqueline is constantly speaking out against Danielle, even in situations that don’t involve her.
Recently we told you that Dolores Catania reiterated claims that Danielle stole her spot on season one, and she was definitely a bit shady throughout her interview. Danielle responded on Twitter and insisted that Dolores wasn’t being considered for season 1, but that she was “a nice girl” and “caught up” about her potential return!
Following this, tension is brewing and Jacqueline Laurita is fueling the fire. She can’t stop discrediting Danielle’s possible return, and is siding with Dolores; (trying) to confirm that Danielle stole her spot.
Danielle spoke to AATRH exclusively to comment on Jacqueline’s nudging; she kept it short, sweet and classy.
“Jacqueline will align with whomever she can as a desperate attempt to discredit anyone who she is threatened by I guess for today … that would be me. Let her pathological paranoid behavior rest where it may . She knows it’s only a matter of time before she is fully exposed. Perhaps I am the only one who knows her ‘true lies,’” Danielle explained.
I am not sure if Jacqueline is just lying because Danielle is a huge threat to her and her future on RHONJ, or if she was shady years back. Teresa Giudice accused Dolores and Jacqueline of having issues in the past, so Dolores may have been her target back when season one was being cast.
I can honestly see Jac bringing Danielle on the show in secret, and acting innocent when Dolores got cut. Danielle and Dolores may both be naive to this situation; having no idea of their “friend” Jacqueline’s scheming. It is discrediting her reputation further that now her games from season one are coming back to haunt her.
In typical Jersey fashion, the shade is getting real before the season even starts! The official cast is still yet to be decided, but we’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear who’s signed on the dotted line!
