Danielle Staub Would Give Melissa Gorga a Run for Her Money If She Returns to RHONJ – Danielle Outs Melissa on WWHL

WWHL Update 9/9/2013: Danielle was shown clips of what the current Housewives said about her during their appearances on WWHL. The following are her comments after watching each clip.

On Caroline saying that if she could take back a moment on the show, it would be her meeting with Danielle, because she was mean to her – she called her a clown:

That would be the moment? The clown moment? Really?! I’m not buying it. But thank you.

On Teresa feeling an alliance with Danielle, in hindsight:

I love Teresa. I have absolutely no problems with Teresa. I really feel like she was probably stuck in between friendship and a kinship with a family that she’s known for the better part of her life and in trying to create a friendship with me. I think she was manipulated by a lot by them. Like she said, I did know things but it’s not my place. I know things about all of them. It’s not my place. In time, everyone exposes themselves – I think I said that. And I do truly believe that she feels remorse. I felt her heart when she was just speaking, and I believe it. I believe her.

On Jacqueline saying Danielle stalks her and says horrible things about her:

I think she needs to put the wine away and possibly seek help for that. I have not been around her. I haven’t tweeted, I haven’t talked. If you wanna check timelines – the internet, you can’t erase it – we all know that. We all have regrets on that. And I think that probably she might possibly be the worst example of somebody creating a truth. You know, I moved on from her the moment that she showed me her true colors. And I did genuinely hug her goodbye (at the end of the season 2 reunion special) because I felt like we had a relationship at one time, and I felt bad for her because I knew she was again caught in between family and friendship. But, in time, after that, when I thought that we were just going to move on from it, I would just read just horrific things on Twitter, and I just knew then that was just never going to be someone that I could move on from.

On Melissa saying Danielle in-boxed her on Facebook about the sprinkle cookies and that she never met her in person:

Well, the one truth in there is that we did never meet; however, it was because I wouldn’t allow that to happen. She wanted to film during season 2, and she thought it would be a good way to get back at Teresa. And I said I wanted absolutely nothing to do with that, however, I would forward all her e-mails, which were a lot, to the producers, which I did. Which is how, after two seasons of her being behind the scenes – on camera but behind the scenes – she all the sudden became a person of interest and that’s how she landed on the show. Um, I think that it would be good for her to just come clean. I wanted nothing to do with what she wanted to do to Teresa. It’s not my place. I don’t play with that. Karma has a return policy and it isn’t an exchange.

It would be an interesting battle between Danielle Staub and Melissa Gorga if Danielle were to return to the show.

In May 2010, when her memoir, “The Naked Truth,” hit book shelves, Danielle went on a national book tour, the same thing that Melissa will be doing when her memoir hits shelves on September 17, 2013.

Danielle would have something to say to Melissa about her friendship with Kim G – Melissa and Kathy were buddies with Kim G in season 3 (Kim G was ousted from the show early that season).

In an interview with PopEater in June 2010 (video below), Danielle said she is not the reason Dina left the show, plus she commented about Teresa “pretending that she’s rich.” And about all her RHONJ castmates, Danielle said:

“In me, they have all seen a little piece of them. Those women completely broke my spirit.”

Bravo recently ran a marathon of past seasons of RHONJ, and fans went on Twitter to express their support for Danielle. Many pointed out the spa party at Danielle’s home in season 1 episode 3 (“Not One of Us”) where, during Botox injections and lip plumping, Dina threw some zingers at Danielle, for which she apologized in her Bravo blog for the episode (also read Danielle, Jacqueline, Caroline, and Teresa’s Bravo blogs for the episode). The following are some of those tweets and Danielle’s replies.

@daniellestaub So glad @Bravotv aired it all again. Enlightening in hindsight…You were an outsider and I believe you were sincerely trying

Keri Lewis ‏@Caseylew 31 Aug
@jlisas777 @daniellestaub Watch how Dina treated Danielle when Danielle tried to start over and sincerely tried to be friends. It’s gross.

@Caseylew @daniellestaub agreed it was like the movie mean girls

Sue Cohen ‏@plainviewsue 30 Aug
@Caseylew @daniellestaub I still feel in my gut it was Jacqueline who told Danielle everything about Dina. J wanted to bring Dina down. IMO!

During the same interview with PopEater, there is a clip of Danielle singing live (“Real Close,” featuring Lori Michaels) on WWHL.
