Daniel ‘Danny’ Provenzano was seen on the second season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, due to his friendship with Danielle Staub. She had said she had Danny around for protection from her other co-stars. It was rumored that Danny and Danielle were dating throughout the series. Danny is a reputed mob associate who directed the film This Thing of Ours, that is about mobsters. The film stars Frank Vincent and Vincent Pastore. According to NJ.com, Danny is now disputing an assault claim filed by a New York woman.
According to the New York Police Department, Danny was charged with assault in February for an incident in November. The woman told police she feared for her life, and that she suffered from pain in her arm and back due to the assault. Danny claims he never struck the woman and that the dispute is “1 million percent” over money. The alleged victim didn’t file earlier because she was trying to get back money that she said Danny borrowed from her. Danny denied he borrowed money and said the woman invested in an animated series he is working on, that is titled Wise Guys and Whack Jobs.
Danny appeared with Danielle during season two of the RHONJ. Watch a clip of them below:
I remember Danielle and Danny being on the show a lot during season two. This news story is like an episode from The Sopranos. Danielle did say on the RHONJ that she previously had a little work thing with The Sopranos. I wonder if Danielle and Danny still keep in touch? I miss the earlier seasons of the RHONJ! I’m excited for the upcoming season, too. I’m hoping it’ll have the feel of the earlier seasons.
