RHONJ banned from country club; Teresa and Danielle in fist fight at reunion

Spoilers for old RHONJ, if you care
Part of the reason I’m reporting this is that I actually watched a whole episode and a half of this show over the weekend. I have to admit it wasn’t bad, although I prefer a good Cake Boss marathon. In the full episode I saw, which was from last week I think, most of the ladies went to Italy to visit Teresa and Joe Giudice’s family. (If you’re not familiar with them, they’re the couple that filed for bankruptcy but denies all responsibility for their $11 million in debt, and have spent $60k in two months post-bankruptcy.) There were some touching scenes where they met up with Joe’s Italian relatives, including Joe’s 83 year-old grandmother. Those nice moments were pretty much overshadowed by evidence of how trashy Joe and Teresa are. Joe complained loudly about how much money everything cost and Teresa paraded her four daughters around in matching custom made dresses more suited for a pageant than a casual family reunion. Those two really stole the show with their overbearing personalities and out of control lifestyle. (Also, neither Teresa nor Joe knew what a bidet was. Here’s The Soup’s coverage of that.)

Meanwhile Danielle Staub, the proud sex tape star and Teresa’s nemesis, was back in New Jersey. She was looking for her birth mother, who gave her up for adoption as a baby. She made some really narcissistic comments to the private investigator she hired, saying “I’m not interested in finding [my mom] if she’s addicted to any drugs or alcohol or is homeless. I’m not finding her to make her better, I’m finding her to make me better.” I was also really surprised to learn that Staub had two teenage daughters. You wouldn’t expect that from someone who released her own sex tape, but go figure. Staub is not going to be on the show if it’s renewed for another season and while there are rumors of a spin off show other sources say it’s just wishful thinking on her part.

Staub and Giudice are in a long term feud, and had two big fights shown on the show. In their first and most famous, Teresa flipped over a table and screamed at Danielle that she was a “prostitution whore.” In another, Danielle taunted Teresa with the fact that her house was in foreclosure. (you can watch both of those on this post.)

Radar Online has details of yet another fight between Teresa and Danielle, a fist fight they say happened at the show’s reunion. Here’s their report:

“A fight broke out between Danielle and Teresa. It got so crazy that the producers had to get involved and break it up,” a source told RadarOnline.com. The whole cast has been tight-lipped about what happened, but everyone is still talking about it amongst themselves.

“It got a little crazy,” another source said. “Did anyone walk away with a black eye, no… But it definitely got to the point where I think everyone was more than holding on to their seats or being held back.”

Adds the source: “I have seen episodes of different Housewives shows and some reunion shows and this is one that should NOT be missed.”

[From Radar Online]

The fist fight part is just in the title and not the text of their story, which reads “New Jersey Housewives Come to Blows on Reunion Show.” We’ll see, and I’m sure if it’s bad enough the clips will be online. Meanwhile all the New Jersey housewives have been banned from a country club after a fight there in which Jacqueline’s 19 year-old daughter, Ashley, pulled out some of Danielle’s hair extensions. Ashley is facing a lawsuit from Danielle over the incident. All the Real Housewives have been banned from that country club, with the general manager writing an apologetic – and scathing – letter to members explaining the incident and promising it would never happen again. You can read the letter here, and highlights includeWe clearly made a mistake in not fully understanding the potential risk of this event… these women do not represent the people and families of our many neighboring towns or the population of the great state of New Jersey.” You would really hope they don’t, or our society is in deep trouble. I kind of like Caroline, though I probably just didn’t watch the show long enough to see her major character flaws.

    The scariest thing about Danielle is her relationship with her daughters, so you probably don’t want to see those eps. They are much more mature than her and she apparently she has a fantasy of living off the older girl’s modeling career.

  2. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I watch all the Real Housewives shows and the reunion for NJ sounds awesome. I find it hard to believe Danielle would ever fight though because she clearly isn’t a physical person with the way she fled during the country club fiasco. However this will be interesting since no one on the show likes Danielle but at the same time its kinda one sided, she has no one on her side and thats not fair. Maybe Danielle brought that on herself.

    I thought those dresses for Teresa’s daughters were cute. I like to dress up and be pretty and I get Teresa’s need to be fabulous.

  3. kelbear says:

    Caroline is my favorite, she has a loving family and her son Albie is a cutie!

  4. Bored@Work says:

    Danielle is crazy but Teresa is sure giving her some competition in the crazy dept. Plus she is in serious denial with this whole bankruptcy situation. That last episode proved it. Running around Italy “Chanel. Chanel” While Joe is screaming for the world to hear how much everything costs. I don’t know how in the world she could say Joe kept her in the dark about the financial situation. She just didn’t want to hear it.

    She just doesn’t listen. Acting like a damn airhead. She’s not even cute either to be acting like that. Airheads usually compensate in the looks dept. this one I just don’t get it. To quote a line from “The Big C” either you are fat and jolly or you are a skinny bitch, pick one. she better wise up because that airhead routine is gonna land her a$$ in the poor house. That other people have lived in. Gross, I know.

    She just keep picking fights because she’s unhappy with herself and Danielle’s situation is no longer the limelight.

  5. Tess says:

    Caroline’s always been my favorite. But, I don’t get her tolerance and affection for Teresa.

    Teresa’s so obviously ignorant and classless. Don’t understand why it doesn’t rub Caroline the wrong way.

  6. alr says:

    all trash and no class

  7. guesty says:

    hopefully dina will be back with danielle outta there next season.

  8. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Theresa is a disgusting pig.

    That is all.

  9. coup de grazia says:

    i saw the episode of them in italy and was embarrassed as an american – - they were the epitome of the loud, obnoxious ugly american.

    and the way they were screaming about looking for “chanel’s”, like it’s mcdonald’s or something, christ.

  10. Snarf says:

    Danielle is a complete and total sociopath but Terresa is no prize either.

  11. Melanie says:

    I think Caroline is actually pretty likable. She seems like a great mom to her children and a really loyal family member. She doesn’t seem to have any major character flaws.

    I agree with Tess, I don’t understand Caroline’s tolerance of Theresa. My only guess is that she figures since Theresa is just dumb and harmless it would be more trouble than it’s worth to call her out on her BS or something. I think Caroline is smart enough to pick her battles.

  12. Team Bethenny says:

    Caroline’s a lot more reserved this season, and I like her being the voice of reason. I also wish my mom was as supportive as she is. But she is too confrontational and defensive; she sees the world through a lens of “us against them.” I find that sad.

    In Italy, she and Al seemed, at times, painfully embarrassed by the pack of animals they were traveling with.

  13. Leek says:

    Theresa, in my opinion, is scum of the earth. Danielle is just crazy so at least she has an excuse. Medication could help her. There is no saving Theresa.

  14. gg says:

    I don’t have any idea who these sleazy cows are, but the one with the Shirley Temple ringlets in the lace leggings – good grief, she dresses like a 13-year-old. And if you have a 2-inch forehead, there’s no need to get it shot through with botox. Zero class and no taste. I couldn’t find those horrid rags if I went looking for them.

  15. original kate says:

    theresa and joe are revolting and their daughters behave worse than feral children. all these NJ chicks are trashy as hell.

  16. Samigirl says:

    I’m with you, CB…give me a Cake Boss marathon over the RHOseries. If I want to see trash, I have recycling bins for that.

  17. excuse me says:

    I only use this site for the photos & a quick glance at the text to know what is going on with celebs. That being said, I don’t know how anyone can watch this show or any other ‘reality’ show that encourages people to act badly for the camera. The mere fact that someone actually produces this show tells me how badly the U.S. needs a moral compass when it comes to television programming.

  18. RHONYC says:

    @ original kate:

    ‘feral children’


    thanx for that…hil-fuggin-arious!!!


  19. mollination says:

    I think Dina has to go pee-pee in that last picture.

  20. aenflex says:

    Holy crap I never noticed the forhead until you just said that, GG. That’s got to be the worlds smallest forhead.
    And excuse me, ITA w/ your post too.

  21. john wilson says:


  22. pebbles says:

    Yeah, I watch, but oddly, I don’t think that these ladies will be as exciting without the Danielle dynamic. If Danielle leaves next season, I think that we will be left with a whole lotta blandness intermixed with spoiled wailing children.

  23. connie says:

    @notgaga i TOTALLY agree, some of my friends havent understood where im coming from when i sae that. that first episode when she wanted to drive by a party she wasn’t invited to, i was embarassed for her daughters

  24. chris says:

    These are really some butt ugly women. I’ve seen mountain trailer trash with 6 kids, half their teeth knocked out, and a meth habit that looks better than these women.

  25. Kiska says:

    I love Caroline but I truly miss Dina. She is so classy, beautiful, and elegant. If Danielle doesn’t return to the show, I hope that Dina does.

  26. Faye says:

    danelle staub looks like that guy who worked for Kaiser Soze. The one with the British accent.

  27. wunderkindt says:

    I’m sure Teresa started the fist fight. Cant wait to watch the reunion show!

  28. LBees says:

    Theresa… what a sloppy mess.

    Her hair looks like it is EATING her forehead.

    “Hungry hungry hungry give me more forehead RAWR”

  29. SRM says:

    Did anyone catch when Danielle was with the PI and said all she knew about her birth mom was her age and “ethnicicity”?

  30. LBees says:

    Also, as Ron White says, “…things that make you go… blegh” *shudders*

  31. mollyo says:

    Lol ethninicity- my husband and I had to rewind it twice to make sure we heard right!Danielle is so akward and painful to watch. She tries to act all cunning and cool and comes across as a fake, low-class looking trannie with her one-liners. Her poor kids…I was hoping her ex-husband would whisk her kids away during the daughter’s sweet 16 party…

  32. poopie says:

    How are theresa/joe related to caroline and the rest?

  33. daisyfly says:

    Teresa looks like Britney Spears’ doll after it’s been in the microwave for a minute on High.

  34. Tim Whatley says:

    “danelle staub looks like that guy who worked for Kaiser Soze. The one with the British accent.”

    Agreed! That, was hilarious Faye.

  35. NayNay says:

    They are all pure trash!
