There is a lot of drama growing in the Garden State!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey are back with a bang for season 10. OG of the RHONJ, Teresa Giudice, had made amends with Danielle Staub and developed a friendship with her over the last couple of years. They were both cast members during seasons 1 and 2, however; their falling out ended with Teresa’s epic table flip during the finale of the first season. Although they are on good terms with one another in the episodes airing right now, we know that by the end of the season they have a big falling out.
After the most recent episode this week, Danielle got into a heated argument with RHONJ castmates, including Margaret Josephs and Jennifer Aydin. Teresa was the only one on good terms with Danielle, so after Danielle left – Teresa went to check on her and make sure she was okay.
Danielle recently opened up to Us Weekly about the drama on the RHONJ. Danielle called the RHONJ castmates “mean girls” and said that they are “100 percent” threatened by her relationship with Teresa. Furthermore; Danielle said, “They’re the ones telling my story.”
Although she’s not in a full-time role for season 10, Danielle said, “It would have made probably a different dynamic. I don’t think the group would have been as cocky, but anyway. Yeah. Let the little girls be little girls. I’m still an OG, baby.” She added, “You’re probably going to hear a lot of mean girls telling my story rather than seeing my story. Unfortunately, the fans are not going to be happy again, I don’t think. But there is a little bit of a horizon. There’s ups and downs, with Teresa and I, but you do see the development of something very real going on between us.”
As far as her friendship with Teresa goes, she shared, “I mean, from the beginning, it’s always been kind of a hot and cold thing. But we did come full circle. So I guess we’ll have to watch and see what happens between us throughout the season. But I would like people to keep in mind that it was she that asked for forgiveness. And I gave that to her and I asked my children to do the same. And they did. And we’ll just see where it goes from there. Trust is a funny thing. It’s a moving part. And I have major trust issues and they’re developing and more heightened as my years grow.”
Danielle added that the RHONJ cast, including Melissa Gorga, Jennifer Aydin, Margaret Josephs, and Jackie Goldschneider, are “100 percent” threatened by her relationship with Teresa. She said, “Why wouldn’t they? Even Melissa. Listen, it takes four people to replace one Danielle Staub.”
She explained, “Margaret Josephs, definitely. Jennifer, still don’t know what she’s about, so I’m just going to leave it. Yeah, she’s trying to tell my story desperately. Jackie just kind of will do what Melissa says, even though she has her own mind and I respect that. Never really had a conversation with me so it’s difficult for me to judge her and then say I don’t like her judging me. So I’m just going to let her be the odd one out and say she shouldn’t be speaking of me because we’ve never had a one-on-one conversation ever. And then there is Melissa, who is panic-stricken to cover up her own past with me and her history with me. She’s never going to be out in the clear until she just outs herself. It’s her story to tell. I’d appreciate her tell it on her own. I don’t have a problem with Dolores [Catania.] Dolores, as far as I’m concerned, she’s a solid staple amongst anyone of us.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
Wow! This is going to be a wild season of the RHONJ. I’m curious to know what led to Teresa and Danielle having another falling out, and I’m wondering if they’re repairing their friendship again? I feel bad for Danielle, I think she’s hurting inside. I understand why Teresa feels bad for her and always goes to check on her after she gets into fights with the other women. I feel bad for the other ladies too because Danielle says a lot of hurtful things she shouldn’t when she’s upset. I’m just so happy that the RHONJ is back on! I’m looking forward to watching this season play out.
Thoughts on what Danielle had to say? Thoughts on this season so far? Do you think the RHONJ cast is threatened by Danielle’s friendship with Teresa? What do you think Danielle and Teresa’s falling out was about? Will they be friends again? Will Danielle return full-time down the road? Sound off below!
