It’s no secret that Danielle Staub will “never” return to the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The love-to-hate NJ villain announced a few months ago that she was officially done with RHONJ.
On Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Danielle declared, “Well I have over the past 12 years and 10 seasons been a part of this whole franchise, and I’ve been very happy to rally and stand on the platform and be here with all of you, but it is time for me to leave and do something that I want to do that makes my heart happy every day. And so I will be never returning as a Housewife again. Nope, never returning as a Housewife again… with the Jersey girls.”
But it seems that Danielle is also done with ALL of her RHONJ co-stars.
On the RHONJ After Show, Danielle said she’s done trying to fit in with the RHONJ cast which includes Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Jackie Goldschneider, Margaret Joesphs, Jennifer Aydin and Dolores Catania.
According to Danielle, there are deep issues within the group that stem from the unquestioned “loyalty” they all have for each other. Danielle claims this luxury of unquestioned “loyalty” was never afforded to her despite knowing the ladies of the group for decades.
“There’s problems that run really deep among that group,” Danielle said. “Allegiances and loyalties, to Italians, is usually everything. But it’s amazing by how these other strangers come in from different parts that they don’t know — I know Dolores Catania and her family for over 26 years. I don’t know who any of them are anymore, I really don’t.”
Danielle went on to say that she lost herself trying to fit in with the ladies of RHONJ. She also claims that her former co-stars are jealous of the attention she gets while also insisting that she’s “better than them.”
“I will tell you one thing: I lost myself for a few years of trying to fit in with people that I would normally never even give a moment’s notice to. In my life, I’m not better than anybody but I’m definitely better than them,” Danielle said. “I don’t have to try hard to get attention, I just get it. I’m really happy with who I am. I don’t have any reason to want to fit in with people who don’t want me around anyway.”
The three-part RHONJ season 10 reunion kicks off on Wednesday, March 4 at 8/7c.
