AATRH Exclusive: How Is Danielle Staub Adjusting To Filming After Years Away From RHONJ?!

We’ve known for weeks that Danielle Staub was returning to RHONJ after years away from the spotlight, and many are wondering how she’s doing, now that she’s filming again; so we set out to get all of the scoop on Danielle’s return to Bravo!

She had a rough time her first two seasons on the show, and it was for the best that she took a step back and focused on her family; the Laurita/Manzo clan had taken over at that point, and it was clear they were out to take her down. They are officially off of the show and now Danielle is back and has a second chance to be a Real Housewife of New Jersey.

Last week she hosted her housewarming party, and it was the first time the RHONJ season 8 cast filmed as a group. While newbie Margaret Josephs was not in attendance, Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Siggy Flicker, and Dolores Catania all showed up to support.

We’ve told you numerous times that Danielle’s role is unknown at this point, and depending on what she brings to the show she will either be a, “friend,” or a full-time housewife.

We spoke to our RHONJ sources, who dished on Danielle’s return and agreed that she is a, “great addition to season 8.

Production is thrilled with Danielle; while one would assume she’d be a little rusty after years of not filming, she’s back and better than ever,” a RHONJ source confirmed. Adding, “She’s great on camera and picked up right where she left off, it was a bit unexpected to be honest.

Another insider told us that Danielle has spent the past few years learning from her experience on the show and she is doing things different this time around. “Of course Danielle will always remain true to herself, but she has grown as a person and is in a great place in her life; she’s excited to show America the real Danielle Staub,” the insider explained.

This season is just getting started and there are still months of filming to play out, however after only a few weeks it’s evident that bringing her back to RHONJ was the right decision.

It’s safe to say that we will see more of Danielle this season than originally expected,” a source wrapped!

AATRH has been very vocal in our support of bringing Danielle back to the show. Even though Jacqueline is gone and she won’t be exposing her for the schemer that she is, we have been assured that Danielle will be great for ratings and will play an important role in season 8!

Are you excited Danielle is back? Are you surprised she’s doing great on camera? Will she be a full-time housewife? Who do you think Danielle will have drama with? Did she get an un-fair shot the first time around? Let’s Discuss!

    Why aren’t the producers and writers able to bring something new to the table. We are all sick of the same old thing. Danielle should never been asked back and the only reason she is here is because NJ is failing so badly that they are doing anything they can bring it back to life. Not going to happen.
    Im bored this is why NJ is no longer on my record list, it’s old and tired.

    Nope not excited. She got everything she deserved the first time around.

      I am 50/50; the way she acted at times, then the tweets and empty threats and interviews over the years in conjunction with her boo hooing and saying she was bullied / had her daughter involved to defend her just to come back? Made no sense to me . The other side of that for me was- yay, bring the receipts on Whackie Jackie ! But I guess that wont happen now because someone never signed contract .

    Loved Danielle on the show, hope she will bring it again. Hopefully she’ll go at it with Melissa- I don’t buy M’s phony friendship with Teresa at all.
