Danielle Staub and Teresa Giudice were very popular enemies, but today the two seem very close. After the drama that occurred on seasons one and two of the show, Danielle is explaining how she was able to forgive Teresa for everything that happened in the past.
“I have this rule in my life. I believe if someone genuinely apologizes to me, I’m going to take it from there … Otherwise, I might miss out on a really beautiful relationship and if I had closed my eyes and my heart to that, I’d be missing out on all of this,” Danielle said.
On The Daily Dish podcast, Danielle shared that Teresa reached out to her several times to diffuse the situation.
“I didn’t know where it would go when she reached out to me. I was hoping we would connect, make nice,” Staub shared. That’s when Teresa and Danielle met up for yoga.
Danielle blames Teresa’s past behavior on former RHONJ stars Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita.
“You know she’s really grown as a person and I think she’s getting rid of some of those toxic people that she had in her life. They were feeding her a lot of arsenic and she was getting sick from it.” When asked to clarify who these “toxic people” were, Danielle said “Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita.”
“They’re toxic at the highest level of toxicity. It’s arsenic that they feed you, arsenic. If they had left Teresa and I alone, we would have a beautiful relationship. But they made her feel like she was the one that had to defend them,” she continued, adding that she never felt like Teresa was out to get her. “Teresa never did that. But she did react and be protective of them and I think that’s one of the reasons she and I can reconnect, because she didn’t come for my jugular. She was reacting as if she was protecting them and doing the right thing.”
