Danielle Staub Shares Update About Her Daughters Christine and Jillian

We first met Danielle Staubs’ daughters, Christine and Jillian, when The Real Housewives of New Jersey kicked off eight seasons ago. Now that Danielle has returned to the show, she’s sharing an update about what her daughters have been doing since we last saw them.

Danielle calls Christine and Jillian the loves her life and explains she has been a “solo” parent for 18-years.

“Jillian, she’s at Monmouth University. She’s shifting gears. She was starting to do pre-law and she joined a sorority. And the sorority is attached to the foundation Autism Speaks. So she went and she was apart of one of their open houses at the school and she just saw these children just as beautifully as can be,” Danielle explained in an interview with Bravo. “Jillian’s heart is so warm and welcoming, and they all kind of came to her and gravitated toward her energy.”

But now, Jillian wants to work in special education. “She shifted gears and she took her Praxis [a series of American teacher certification exams written and administered by the Educational Testing Service] and she passed with flying colors. That’s my Jillian,” she gushed. “And she nailed it. And now she’s going to be a teacher for autistic children.”

Danielle also approves of Jillian’s boyfriend, Dan Kaufman. “She met a beautiful young man. And he’s made it very clear to me that he intends on spending his life with Jillian,” she said. “That is falling into place, and beautifully.”

”Tis the season to be daging

Christine is also doing well. “She graduated from Seton Hall University with a double major in sociology and psychology. She graduated summa cum laude, the top one percent in her class. She’s going to Columbia for [grad school]. She’s very, very bright,” Staub said, adding that her eldest child is also in a flourishing romance with a Latin guy named Ivan Maggi.

“She’s in a really great relationship with a beautiful Argentinian man. And Ivan’s 6-foot-7, so Christine the supermodel gets to be short around him. They’ve been together for two years now,” Danielle, who is engaged to businessman Marty Caffrey, said. “And, actually, we just had ‘em over for pasta Sunday yesterday.”

Relationships are challenging work but for him it’s all worth it ☺️💕

    1. Nature, thankfully beat out Nurture!
      Thankfully, the Girls are creating meaningful lives and have learned What Not to Do!
      Beautiful, young Women!

      1. Amen to that. I read the Danielle Books via Google when she was first part of the show: she has a pretty seedy background, and as per her biography, appears to have narcissistic personality disorder. It is indeed a wonder that those beautiful girls have found purpose in their lives. Years ago I’ve seen Christine walk during Fashion Week in New York. Who knew she’s already made her way through University- time passes so quickly!

    2. No small wonder right? But as much as a skank “questionable” woman Danielle is, she’s always seemed like a pretty good mother.

    3. Rocky I hope you’ve been spreading the word about this site over yonder. I hear there’s a new an exciting character named FakeRealityTV over there. *wink wink

        1. Good sites like this have a way of gaining momentum – unfortunately the bad will eventually find it as well.

        1. GrlPlease, RealityTVTJunkie, CNN, Chloe, RHONJFan are all uber-aggressive/combative loons who I’ve gone around with for years (they just don’t know it:-) … and when certain friends upvote their stupid comments, they become dead to me as well. My tolerance level has reached it’s limit. Thankfully, the WWW is a great big place and I’ve always enjoyed keeping it moving. Of course that isn’t to say I’m not lurking around … *wink wink:-)

          1. LOL, I could tell after a while. Sad, as we are all here to talk about our shows. When she said yes, more should have died in Vegas…That was it. It should have been taken down immediately and NO ONE took her to task. She should have been blocked asap. When that didn’t happen….and the sight said nothing??? Done. I don’t care what political side anyone is on….to say that….was just too much. WOW

            1. I forgot about that; yes that infuriated me too (I emailed the mods and got no response). It’s political; they have an agenda and like typical libs, are silencing the other side … it’s as simple as that.

  1. They are Beautiful Girls!
    Pre- Law..
    I am, glad there are no longer suffering from Stockholm Syndrome..
    Psychology? Danielle is a perfect Abnormal Psycology Thesis and a perfect Case Study..

  2. Ugh. So glad these girls seem so well-adjusted. Seriously. I have no snark for this. The world needs at least a few people whose lives aren’t ruined by a narcissistic histrionic skank of a mother.

    OK. I had a *little* snark I guess.
