Jackie like the rest of the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast could do without Danielle from here on out – especially after her season 11 antics.
However, it seems that Jackie’s reasoning for disliking Danielle differs from her co-stars.
While appearing on Danny Pellegrino’s Everything Iconic podcast, the RHONJ star revealed why she’s not a fan of Danielle.
But before Jackie spilled that tea on that, she shared her thoughts on Danielle’s over the top antics at the season 10 reunion.
“I thought Danielle was very… I think she’s changed since last year. If you watched her on the reunion last year I think she was feistier,” Jackie explained. “This year she just seemed sad and resigned. She was over it, I feel like.”
As for Danielle’s future on RHONJ, host Danny Pellegrino asked, “Do you think she’ll end up missing it and coming back or do you think she’s done for good?”
“No, I don’t think she can come back,” Jackie admitted. “She has no … you have to have at least one friend on the cast in order to be a part of the group and there’s really nobody. I don’t see how she’d integrate at all. I think she’s done. I don’t think she really adds anything to it.”
Jackie then points out that she’s “not a big fan” of Danielle but for reasons that “most people don’t even know about.”
According to Jackie, Danielle made some comments while appearing on The Wendy Williams Show that rubbed her the wrong way.
“[W]hen you’re first on the show you’re not allowed to say anything until Bravo announces you and so I was like, the new cast member and people knew but I hadn’t had my chance to like, meet the world yet. And she went on Wendy Williams and told everybody that I was really boring,” Jackie explained.
She continued, “[Danielle said] that there’s two new cast members and one of them is really boring and she’s a one-and-done… I was so upset because I couldn’t defend myself, I couldn’t say anything. And all that anybody knew about me for a month was just that I was boring. And she only said that because I was Margaret’s friend and she hated Margaret at that point, but … I hated her since then.”
Meanwhile, Jackie also talked about her current relationship with RHONJ OG Teresa Giudice. As we all know, Jackie and Teresa didn’t exactly get off on the right foot when Jackie joined RHONJ during season 9.
Despite their past issues, Jackie says she and Teresa are currently in a good place.
“We’re okay, we’re okay,” Jackie said.
She elaborated, “We don’t talk on the phone, but we text each other and we’re really really cordial. I think she knows that like, our fighting days … I mean, unless something else happens. I think Teresa and I both realize that we’re better off as friends because we can offer each other support and strength.”
As we previously revealed filming for season 11 is currently on hold due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Thoughts on Jackie’s comments? Do you think Danielle will ever return to RHONJ? Are you surprised Jackie and Tre are in a good place?
