RHONJ star Danielle Staub recently appeared on The Wendy Williams Show and opened up about her short-lived marriage to Marty Caffrey. Staub revealed that Caffrey’s drinking problem had a lot to do with their divorce.
â€œItâ€™s funny how I saw certain things happening, but you just believe, especially with the perception around us, getting engaged would make it better â€¦ getting married would make it better,â€ Danielle said on the show. â€œIt doesnâ€™t get better, ladies. If itâ€™s falling apart, itâ€™s broken.â€
â€œHe does hit cocktail hour a little bit heavily and it does change things,â€ she continued. â€œI think all of us it changes, I just donâ€™t think it changes him for the better or his ability to maneuver through whatâ€™s going on.â€
US Weekly broke the news in September that Caffrey filed for divorce from Staub after nearly four months of marriage. News of their split came after the reality TV personality sought a temporary restraining order against him. Staub claimed in court documents that she â€œfound her husband standing in her garageâ€ on August 12, appearing â€œto be under the influence of alcohol, agitated and confrontational.â€
Caffrey then filed his own restraining order against Staub, alleging that she threatened â€œto stab [him] in the neck at least a dozen timesâ€ over the past year. Danielle’s rep called his filling â€œlaughableâ€ at the time.
Staub, however, also admits to Williams that sheâ€™s â€œnot the easiest person to live.â€
â€œIâ€™m to blame for it as well, but I feel like Iâ€™m always the person who wants to fix people and itâ€™s not fixable,â€ she explains. â€œI donâ€™t have a crystal ball, but you canâ€™t go into the public and be tweeting and Instagraming about your wife or your spouse â€¦ You just donâ€™t do that.â€
Wendy asked if Caffrey liked being a “house husband.’
Danielle responded, â€œI think that that was what Iâ€™m most disappointed about. His want for this attention.â€
