During a recent appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Danielle Staub did not hold back about anything. As we reported, she discussed her divorce from Marty Caffrey and now we can share with you that Danielle and her former friend Margaret Josephs get into a major feud on the upcoming season of RHONJ. She also threw major shade at some of her former co-stars.
First, Wendy pointed out that Danielle is not a full-time Housewife. “You’re not a Housewife though this time. You’re just a friend.” Danielle confirmed, “Just a friend. I would love the answer to why that is, but maybe you know some people. I don’t know.”
Wendy asked, “Why did you accept then?” Danielle answered, “I thought it was really time to explore Teresa [Giudice] and I making amends on the show and for our children as well.” She insisted, “That friendship is real to me and there isn’t anything I won’t do for her. I just wanted to be there for her.”
Wendy said, “The rumor is that Margaret is responsible for having a lot of your scenes cut out.”
Danielle told Wendy, “Well, that’s the funny thing about rumors. Wouldn’t we all like that kind of power? What is this? She’s been here a minute. We haven’t even seen her in Season 2, have we?” Wendy pointed out, “I didn’t even see you in that trailer.”
Danielle insisted, “Yeah, I’m there.” She also claimed she “brings it” this season and says, “I’m the reason for that trailer.”
As for her feud with Margaret Josephs?
Wendy asked, “Do you and Margaret get along?” Danielle shared, “You know, we don’t. We really don’t and I don’t think it’s any secret. You can see all the pictures disappearing on Instagram where we used to get a lot of love.”
Danielle continued, “I don’t want anyone to think that I’m the victim or I want attention from this, but you know, I’m going through a rough time and it would have been nice for her, not to be there for me, but to stay out of my marriage.” She stated, “In a day and age of women empowerment, we should do that for one another or just keep quiet and stay in your own lane.”
Next, Wendy asked Danielle’s thoughts about the new girls. Danielle said, “I do think that one is a little stronger than the other, but I spent more time with her, Jennifer [Aydin]. But what about Jackie? Danielle said, “She kind of disappears to me a little bit. I’m just being honest. It’s nothing personal, it’s just that I’ve been around this zoo for a very long time. I can tell which animals stay and which are going to go.”
Wendy asked Staub about her former co-star Caroline Manzo. Initially Danielle asked, “Who?” Then she pointed out, “We’re the same age, she and I, she hates when I say that. You’re welcome.”
What about Jacqueline? At first, Danielle just said, “No.” Then she remarked, “That’s a whole lot of crazy. I mean, I own my crazy, but if you don’t own it and you’re even crazier than me, that’s a lot of crazy.”
Damn. I think we are in for one hell of a season.
