Danielle Staub is the resident villain of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey and during her Tuesday book signing in Manhattan she created controversy once again, claiming she was being harassed by a former friend.
“I get several mean text messages everyday from her,” Staub told the crowd on Tuesday night. “The messages are from the person who I thought was my best friend and turned out to be the worst of all.”
While Staub refrained from naming the person, one possible candidate is fellow castmember Jacqueline Laurita- the only woman on the show who tried to foster a friendship with Staub during Season One.
However, when the women discovered the book Cop Without A Badge, which allegedly detailed Danielle’s past including an arrest on eight charges including cocaine possession and narcotics conspiracy, Laurita began to re-think her relationship with Staub.
During the second season, which currently is airing on Bravo, Laurita and Staub grew more distant after Laurita severed their friendship due to the wishes of her husband. Staub reacted strongly, bashing Laurita to a table full of friends at a luncheon Laurita declined to be at.
Jacqueline has been more vocal about her growing dislike for Danielle. “Your last name changes when you get married but where did Angela Minilli & Danielle Morelli come from? Hooker names?" Laurita tweeted in reference to the different names Danielle ha shad.
”I am completely avoiding all the housewives,” Danielle added, even extending that sentiment to the other ladies' children. “The kids can’t even play under these circumstances.”
