Danielle Staub of RHONJ is engaged for literally the 20th time

And I thought I was bad at love. Sheesh. Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Danielle Staub got engaged for the 20th time. Do they say “20th time’s the charm?” Maybe they should. Although Danielle’s now fiancee Marty Caffrey actually asked her to be his wife back in May, it wasn’t official until the proposal, caught (naturally) by Bravo’s cameras, was broadcast during the Reunion Secrets Revealed special on Wednesday. If it didn’t happen on TV, it apparently didn’t happen. Way to keep a secret there, Danielle.

The proposal took place during a set-up tour of a mansion for Danielle, Teresa Giudice and Margaret Josephs. A violinist played, couples danced and Marty magically appeared with a lovely engagement ring stating, “Baby, when I first met you, I was struck with how beautiful you are. As I got to know you, I fell in love with you. I’ll do everything I can to love you, to protect you, and to keep you safe.” And when he popped the question, she quickly responded, “Absolutely. One hundred percent.” Awww.

Danielle said, “The engagement was simply beautiful”, adding that her fiancé is “such a gentleman.” On camera, Danielle’s co-housewives were supportive, with Margaret saying, “She deserves it. She deserves good things.” Former foe Teresa added, “From knowing Danielle in the past, she hasn’t had the best experiences with men.” Was it the 20 proposals that gave that away? She went on to say that, “It took awhile to find Marty, but sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince. And I’m really, really happy for Danielle.” Who else, besides myself, would rather hear what they said after the cameras stopped rolling?

Teresa and Margaret – as well as Danielle’s daughters and Melissa Gorga – have already been named as members of Danielle’s wedding, for which a date has yet to be set. What will you bet this whole shebang will be televised?

Danielle and Marty (I don’t watch the show, so I don’t know what he does, and the internet was of no help to me on this) have been dating since April of 2016. This will be Danielle’s third marriage (I have no room to judge here, because if I say “I do” again, it’ll be three for me). She has two daughters, Christine, 23, and Jillian, 19, with businessman Thomas Staub, hubby number two. Her first husband, former FBI informant Kevin Maher, helped instigate “The Great Table Flipping Incident of 2009.” Yep, watching that clip is all the reason I need for never having watched this show.

I know of the Real Housewives because they’re a part of pop culture, and I had a friend who was obsessed with them. When she lived in LA, I was taken to Lisa Vanderpump’s Beverly Hills eatery Villa Blanca and Danielle just happened to be there at the same time – and both she and Lisa were more than happy to pose for photos and chat for a moment, so this is really all I know about this woman. She was nice enough, so I guess congratulations are in order, huh? Make that third walk down the aisle work, and give some hope to those who may be following you in this endeavor… someday.

    It baffles me that these are shows people like and watch. I know people like to unwind with something light but REALLY?! Do people like to feel normal by watching these idiots? Or…? I have no idea

      +1. How is this even normal?

    • Annika says:

      I’ve never watched them either, just not my kind of thing.
      Genuine question though: why are the shows called Real Housewives of ___ when a lot of the women are not married?
      And why use the term “housewife?” Is that an outdated word?
      I guess I don’t exactly know what that word means.

    What on earth is Danielle wearing in that photo where she is by the staircase? It looks like she tried to give her cat a bath and it clawed off most of her outfit. Congratulations on getting engaged Danielle. Getting engaged is easy, actually getting married seems difficult for her

  3. nonny says:

    Her face should have a starring role in The Mummy.

  4. Naptime says:

    She looks so much better when she doesn’t Botox her brows all the way up to her hairline. Now if she could just back away from the cheek fillers, she would look normal and very pretty! Oh yeah, congrats…

  5. tracking says:

    Lady is a train wreck, but I guess that’s the point of these shows.

    This bish..I can’t even get Mr. Borg to get engaged after 8 yrs one time and she found 20 men to propose to her and even marry her three times…three times. I am ready to flip over a table now ala Theresa.
