The season 9 premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey did not disappoint.
During a girls’ night, Staub, 56, made sure to tell all the ladies about the fact that Catania’s lawyer ex-husband had just been disbarred. The problem? Catania, 47, definitely did not want it discussed.
“She did bring you up, and she was saying something about how Frank was disbarred,” Teresa Giudice admitted to Catania over a lunch date. “I’m like ‘we don’t really talk about stuff like that.'”
“And you know it’s not because we are not close enough to tell you,” Catania replied.
“No not at all,” agreed Giudice, 46.
Catania explained to the cameras: “there’s like an unwritten law in Italian culture where you don’t ask someone their personal’s business. You don’t address the pink elephant in the room. If I choose to share it, that’s my choice, but of course Danielle missed the memo on that, of course.”
“Teresa tell her fu***ng face to fu***ng shut her mouth,” Catania fumed. “She’s a fu***ng nut. She’s a trouble maker, she’s a fu***ng wackadoo.”
Causing even more drama, the frenemies were then forced to confront each other during Melissa Gorga’s 39th birthday party. But Catania took the high road, and instead of yelling at Staub, she simply walked away.
“If I see Danielle at Melissa’s birthday party, I’m either going to be the person that’s going to ignore her or I’m going be Patterson Delores and flip out like I always do," Catania said. "I don’t know which Dolores is going to be there.”
“She’s going to say something to piss me off to get attention from me. Alright Danielle, lets go!” Catania told the cameras.
In the end, however, Catania decided to ignore Staub completely, and even turned around when she tried to approach her.
“I decided I’m just going to ignore her," Catania explained. "I’m not going to let Danielle get under my skin like she did last year, it’s not worth it.”
While the two left the birthday bash unscathed, their feud seems far from over.
In the next episode, drama between Giudice and Gorga escalates when the RHONJ ladies realize Joe Gorga isn't spending enough time with the family.
