The internet broke yesterday when a leaked Real Housewives of New Jersey cast photo dropped.
In the picture, fans could see that the season 8 full-time cast would be made up of newbie Margaret Joseph, OG Teresa Giudice, and returning Housewives Melissa Gorga Dolores Catania, and Siggy Flicker.
Obviously missing from the photo was Danielle Staub, who will NOT be returning as a full-time cast member.
Instead, Danielle will be a friend of the Housewives for season 8. However, we hear that she will be in practically every episode.
Not surprisingly, Danielle isn’t too happy about not being a full-time Housewife and is urging her fans to change that.
On Instagram, Danielle encouraged her fans to reach out to Bravo and Andy Cohen and tell them they want her to be full-time.
Danielle hopes that this outpouring of support will make Bravo reconsider and help land her a full-time spot for season 8.
“Thank you @daniellesmafia for such a #supportive post I need all my supporters from #rhonj to #follow @daniellesmafia my return is in your hands all of you kept asking, and now here I am let’s make it #powerful #gratitude#loveandlight #repost,” Danielle wrote.
Previously, sources told AATRH that Danielle “deserves to be a full-time Housewife.” Adding that, Danielle “brings it big-time.”
While I am shocked Danielle isn’t full-time, I think she may be going about this all wrong. Having angry fans contact Bravo and Andy and demanding Danielle be full-time could backfire and piss off the network. Only time will tell if Danielle’s antics work or not.
In the meantime, I will be tweeting tonight at 9:30 pm during the RHONJ special “How They Got Here” so make sure you join me!
