On season two of the Real Housewives of New Jersey – Danielle Staub hinted that not all was well when it came to Teresa Giudice and her brother Joe and his wife Melissa Gorga. Danielle went as far as noting that Teresa never acknowledged her youngest nephew which infuriated Teresa who denied this. Danielle later on would comment that Melissa Gorga reached out to her via Facebook and spilled tea on Teresa and wanted to get on the show to get back at her. Although she would constantly bring this up – she never actually put the posts out there.
Fast forward to now where Danielle Staub tells Bravo’s After Show she is the reason anyone knows who Melissa Gorga is saying, “I don’t give Melissa a second thought anymore. Another person that I’m the reason that she is there. And [the reason] anyone knows who she is. Your greatest achievement in life is opening up a boutique? Congratulations. Thousands of people do it all the time. It’s not that special.”
Danielle adds, “I don’t care about her. I don’t care about Joey. I don’t care what they think about me. They both used me.”
Danielle thinks that Melissa met with her at the Jersey Shore to push her away from Teresa Giudice. Danielle says Melissa wanted Danielle to say something so that Teresa would flip a switch and that Melissa had come with an agenda.
I try not to remember those times because Melissa and Teresa have come so far but it’s pretty obvious the only reason the Gorga’s got on the show was by telling producers they had issues with Teresa. I do wish Danielle would take accountability for her actions but she seems to have a hard time doing that
