Danielle Staub Claims Caroline Manzo’s Family Harassed Her After Leaving RHONJ

RHONJ star Danielle Staub is revealing how Caroline Manzo’s family harassed her into moving away from her former co-stars.

That’s right, Staub appeared on Amy Phillips‘ radio show and shared a lot.

“There was everything from bullying my children behind the scenes – remember, there were eleven of the Lauritas and all of them had children as well,” Danielle claimed, saying her girls were “terrified” of the backlash they received at school. Danielle claims that Caroline, was likely the ringleader of the harassment.

Danielle told Amy about bus tours that RHONJ fans take, but said they only stopped at her house. “I didn’t know who was running the tours, but I found out later that the Manzos were involved with that,” Danielle said, adding that entire tour groups would unload into her lawn and say things to her family.

One night, Danielle’s house was even vandalized she says. “That night, my house got busted into,” she explains, “Massive front doors ruined – plowed through! $140,000 worth of security cameras ripped off the walls, ‘Prostitution Whore’ written all over the walls. My kids were terrified.”

Staub continued to say nothing was stolen from her house that night. “So we did [leave],” she said. “My daughters and I left and never looked back at the house, the house that they grew up in and the only home they ever knew.”

“You know what, don’t be sad. Because I started over and I pulled myself up,” she told Amy and listeners.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Well, if true she would have called police and there would be reports. Anyone in the blogging industry want to try to get those police reports? The FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) means those reports are available.

    Danielle has a history of lying. Until she builds a new history of being an honorable person I can only base my opinion on her past behavior.

    BTW, I’m the last person on the earth you would ever call a Manzo fan.

      Agreed. Danielle has a proven track record of lying like a Persian rug. Dina, at least, has Season One receipts of Danielle making a false report to the Department of Children’s Services calling for her to be investigated for being an unfit mother, and then there is the matter of her bragging about her mob connections only for Dina’s mailbox to suddenly be pipe bombed in the middle of their tv feud. Danielle would best let sleeping dogs lie before her called is pulled and she “gets sprayed with her own tea”.

  • I don’t believe anyone on the RHONJ has $140,000 worth of anything other than bills.

    • Aunt Bee

      Totally agree ChristopherM

    I am not surprised by that. The Manzo’s are Pit-bulls (I like pit bulls – this is just a figure of speech) just like Danielle is…you lie with dogs…you get bit.

  • Aunt Bee

    I would never believe anything this cobra would say

  • Starr

    This sounds so off the wall although I would not put anything pass Caroline Manzo.

  • Tammy Geahry

    Can’t stand Danielle! Wouldn’t trust her at all. Can’t stand they brought her back

  • Not a Housewife & Neither RU

    I believe Danielle. Those Manzos were bullies and the RHONJ got better after that whole clan was gone.

  • Sugar Mama

    It was prolly her former thug friend and partner in crime Danny looking for his money she hasn’t paid back

    “Unteal”? I have nothing against teal. In fact, it makes up a good portion of my wardrobe. 😉

    Stop the drama Danielle….. your crazy. Firstly you have put out to people what a nitwit you are and no one likes you. No one including the Manzo’s would spend one minute of their time on you. You just have to find someone else to blame. They know what you have done and they know what your capable of. You made this mess for yourself, you just cannot take responsibility for your own actions. Stop putting the blame on others and stop using your children as your pawns to get people to feel sorry for you. Never were your children harassed nor should they feel “Scared” that is all you. The way you acted in Season 1 and season 2 should be a lesson for you, all of that was YOU!!!!! BTW I have always wanted to say this… Lying is a second language for Danielle… Oh look at me poor me, she’s mean to me boo hoo. You will never be a respected member of society so stop the whining.
