Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub recently celebrated her 48th birthday, and RadarOnline.com has exclusive details on her intimate dinner date with best gal pal and rumored girlfriend, Lori Michaels.
Lori picked up Danielle for their “low key” dinner at Houston’s in Hackensack, NJ last Thursday, and once they got there the reality star got her fair share of birthday wishes from fellow diners.
“The place was packed with more than a few ‘Danielle’ fans,” Lori told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview. “The bar was in a bit of a frenzy that she was there!”
Getting the star treatment, the undercover couple was seated right away, but even in the dimly-lit restaurant Danielle and her date were spotted while they enjoyed spinach dip, French fries with a plain veggie burger and sashimi salad.
“We had a lot of interesting ‘visits’ from people there coming to our very visible table,” Lori revealed. “In fact, two women actually came right up and told us they were going to ‘sit down and join us,’ and one older gentleman came back two times asking Danielle if he had left his teeth on the table,” she marveled.
Far from the villain that she is portrayed as on the Bravo show, Danielle was as nice as pie to all her admirers as she shared a ‘birthday’ Key Lime pie with her special date. “The waitress brought out her cake, but hid the candle and I didn’t sing because we didn’t want to draw extra attention to the table,” said Lori.
“Danielle posed for every picture requested, talked to everyone, young and old,” explained Lori. “The waitress commented to us that famous people go there all the time and she has never seen people react like they did for Danielle.”
The couple, who have kept mum about the nature of their relationship since they first performed their duet ‘Real Close’ in June, laughed and managed to go a whole dinner without talking about business, Lori said.
Instead they just enjoyed the moment and celebrated the big event. “We had lots to drink cranberry and seltzer – we were wild!” exclaimed Lori.
