At the time, everything between the two seemed hunky dory; however, on the After Show, Danielle made a surprising accusation against Melissa.
“[Melissa] took an outfit from me and never paid me for it, and literally all my friends bought thousands of dollars from her store,” Danielle told co-star Jennifer Aydin, who replied, “Are you serious?”
Danielle explained, “And I know she’s going to say, ‘Well, I helped you!’ But in reality, she made a lot of money off of all the people that I brought into that store that day. [My outfit] wasn’t a lot, but she never paid me for the outfit she got.”
The mom of two then said if Melissa ever claimed she did Danielle a “favor” by hosting the pop-up event, she would fire back, “Thank you, I really didn’t get any sales from you promoting me.”
“One friend walked out, she’s like, ‘I don’t know what the f–k just happened. I just spent $700 in the store,’” Danielle continued. “And [Melissa] was like, ‘I don’t do this for anybody. I did you a favor.’ You know, favor goes two ways in this situation.”
Danielle believes that Melissa “a thousand percent” benefited from the pop-up event more than she did.
Melissa, on the other hand, doesn’t remember much about the event but believes Danielle “gifted me a little cute thing.” Although she notes she “can’t remember.”
Rachel Fuda then chimed in, claiming that Melissa “bought it.”
“It was a three-piece set. It was a gift. I have a good memory. It was like $25. I think she charged you,” the RHONJ newbie claimed.
A surprised Melissa asked Rachel if the item was a gift, to which the newbie said, “No. You called me.”

Melissa had a pop-up shopping event at Envy to promote Danielle’s clothing line, but Danielle claims that Melissa took an outfit from her without paying for it.
According to Danielle, Melissa “a thousand percent” benefited more from the event than she did, as Melissa made a lot of money from the people Danielle brought into the store.
