Danielle Staub is preparing for her potential RHONJ return, and it’s clear that she’s changed and grown a lot since we last saw her on Bravo. Danielle’s been very active on social media, and her fans have been extremely vocal to Andy Cohen and Bravo execs that they want this Jersey OG back for season 8!
Nothing is set in stone for season 8, but it’s obvious that IF any of the season 7 women are demoted, it will be Dolores Catania. Dolores is such a nice person, and a real friend to most of the cast; but she didn’t bring anything to the table last season, and when she actually had drama with Jac, they worked it out off-camera (while RHONJ was filming). That’s not how things are done for the show, and it’s put her future on reality TV in jeopardy.
It’s evident that Dolores is trying to secure her spot, and suddenly she’s having a voice and doing media to gain exposure; she needed to be doing this months ago! I’ll give Dolores credit, she does know how to throw some shade; I’m just hoping for her sake it’s not too late!
She recently appeared on a Dr. Tabasum Mir’s Podcast, and reiterated her previous claims that Danielle took her spot on season 1, and her tone implied that she wasn’t a fan of Danielle; she even added that she would only “be in a room with her if we were filming.”
Dolores admitted that she has “never had a conversation” with Danielle, but insisted that she knows Danielle wants back on RHONJ “very badly.”
Danielle didn’t take kindly to Dolores’ claims, and she took to Twitter to respond!
Then Danielle clarified that although Dolores was seen on-camera as a friend of Dina’s, she was never in the running to be a housewife! Dolores has been claiming for months she was set to be a full-time housewife for season 1, but then Danielle came in and took her spot. Their are two completely different stories here!
Then, a RHONJ fan pointed out the obvious (Danielle’s comeback is a threat to Dolores’ spot on the show). Danielle’s tweet was passive, but his outspoken Jersey girl isn’t one to hold back; if she had beef with Dolores she would have said so. That being said, after the podcast I’m sure there is some sort of tension!
Finally, Danielle called Dolores “a nice girl,” but admitted that she knows Dolores must be feeling the heat of Danielle’s name “popping up a bit!”
I’m glad that Danielle hasn’t been keeping up with petty RHONJ drama, if she had been, she’d know that Dolores was claiming this for a while. I like both Dolores and Danielle, but I am in total support of Danielle’s comeback. We’ll have to wait and see what producers decide, but I’m willing to bet both ladies will be involved in next season in some capacity!
