As many of you know, I’m new to the twitter world. And in the twitter world I discovered that someone had started a twitter account with the sole purpose of bringing Danielle Staub back to the Real Housewives of New Jersey. I found that intriguing – so I began to follow the account, and asked them to follow me. And then I asked them to write us a blog post on why we should support bringing Danielle Staub back to the show. So here it is. NMD
“Bring Danielle Back” to The Real Housewives of New Jersey
Let’s face the “reality” facts. Since the departure of Danielle Staub, the show has steadily gone down the tubes. As a fan of Danielle Staub and The Real Housewives, I have launched the twitter account or you can call it a movement, to @bringdback #bringdanielleback.
“Love me or hate me, there’s no in between with me.” Not only does it sum up Danielle, but it’s safe to say her fan base follows a similar beat. Without Danielle, fans of RHONJ have been left with a mere shell of a show that continues to fall flat and at times is downright uneventful.
So why does Bravo continue to use Danielle on the show, even though she is gone? Is it a ploy to keep viewers or are they making us think she’s coming back just to save the ratings? As fans, we can only hope it’s something different. The hope is that a new contract offer is in the works to bring Danielle back.
It makes perfect sense. Keep in mind that viewers want to know more about the e-mails between Melissa Gorga and Danielle. And why did Melissa contact Danielle? Maybe Melissa needed support during her own epic battles with Teresa? Or Maybe Melissa was manipulating both Danielle and Teresa?
Viewers will never know this and many other juicy secrets unless Bravo “Brings Danielle Back.” Fans need her to return more than ever, especially now that the tides have turned on Teresa Giudice during this current season. Lets all admit, Danielle endured the most bullying, attacks and character assassinations from her co-stars and so many past truths are now being shown.
So I guess Caroline Manzo has always been the “puppeteer” pulling the strings, operator of Mr. Toads Wild Ride” What about Jacqueline; poor, poor Jacqueline. That’s all I have to say for her.
Finally, there’s Ms. Dina Manzo; the housewife that started the whole mess with Danielle. Here’s a “slow clap” for you. And for the love of God, enough with the freakin’ Kims. Puuuhlease!
It’s time to wake up from this snooze fest and realize that Danielle is desperately needed back to breathe life into The Housewives of New Jersey. It’s time to put differences aside. Fans of the show need a housewife they can cheer for, on many levels.
Bravo, enough with the flashback scenes. Her triumphant return will most certainly prove to be a “win-win.” Your ratings will jump and fans of the show will jump for joy in celebration of the return of the most epic housewife. So make your voices heard!~~ @bringdback
Thank you @bringdback. I’m intrigued by the idea of having her return to the show. What does everyone else think? Poll below if you don’t feel like commenting. NMD

Ok so in summary Kathy congratulates the Manzo boys for opening their new restaurant. No bitterness about good ol’ Al discouraging them from opening their own restaurant but I don’t think Kathy had that in mind anyway. Then she goes into a whole spiel how she got on a journey to selling her baked goods line.
my Dolci della Dea – Goddess Sweets will launch very soon on QVC with my introductory product The Cannoli Kit. Now you too can be the Goddess of Sweets for your family and friends in your own kitchen.
That sounds so corny. I’d rather buy my cannolis from a bakery.
All of this now brings me to the fashion show. When I agreed to go I made a conscious decision to stay out of any drama.
Bravo production didn’t fill you in on the set-up so you sat there.
When we arrived, I have to be honest, I was a bit put off and upset to see the number of men that were in attendance.
Please don’t say it changes the dynamic. I’ve been hearing that ad nauseam.
I still can’t figure out why this creep thought it would be of any interest to Teresa and Kim that he claimed to know Melissa. I must admit to being naïve. I had no idea of the manipulation that was about to unfold.
Innocent and doe-eyed Kathy. Now that she’s trying to sell some baked goods she has to keep as far away from the trashy kerfuffle. How about not being on a reality show.
When he walked over to the table I thought it seemed very strange and contrived that he kept going on and on about how he knew Melissa. What was even more bizarre was the fact that Teresa didn’t call security to get rid of this loser. What was he doing there? She had to have known what his intentions were, since she met him earlier in the day while getting her hair and makeup done. After viewing that scene it’s pretty clear to everyone that he wasn’t there to pass out party favors.
Why? And what? And why didn’t she do that? And what was he doing? I see what you’re doing – making an accusation while not making an accusation.
What happens next is just a mess, and I don’t even want to play it over in my brain any longer. Till this day I keep thinking about it and wondering if there was any way this could have been avoided. Could someone have stopped the impending disaster from occurring?
See you next week when unfortunately things get even uglier.
The end of reality tv is the impending disaster you see. It’s clear Baldy was mic’d and was there to set up someone per the script. No point in watching reality tv when it’s scripted. I can see now why someone on the production staff was fired. This reality show’s credibility is compromised.
To all my Jewish friends, L’Shanah Tovah!
I see our visit made headlines again, and for such a ridiculous reason! Joe was playing with a little boy’s toy gun and I told him, “Put it down before someone takes a picture of you with it! I can just imagine that headline!” Surprise, surprise, that was exactly the headline, that Joe “pointed a gun” at me.
Just in case, take his name off the life insurance policy.
My heart was racing all over again watching this week’s episode. I think you can see I was sincerely uncomfortable at this strange guy trying to talk to me about Melissa’s past. (We all know I’m no actress — that’s actually what finally got me fired from Celebrity Apprentice!) It was very weird because the guy Angelo didn’t really do anything terrible, he wasn’t rude or aggressive, so I couldn’t really say anything more than I did. I think he really did think I knew about her past — which I didn’t, I still don’t, and I, like the rest of America, don’t care! — and when he saw I was upset, he apologized right away. But I didn’t want anything to do with anyone talking about my family, so I left (and I was downstairs, not just around the corner! I couldn’t hear Angelo and Kim D. at all!). I even told Kim D. to shut the f— up! (Sorry, Kim.)
I don’t get it. What are you apologizing to Kim for? Wasn’t she in on it? If Kim is going to be on RHONJ next season, I guess it helps to have an ally.
The whole situation just felt weird, so I took myself out of it. I can’t keep track of all the people Melissa has pissed off in our town, but I am not going to be a part of it.
How does one piss off people in their community? By requesting services and not paying for them? Go to small claims court.
You did see my honest reaction to everything and I’m proud of how I handled it. I think I’ve learned a lot over the past few years — thanks in part to Posche Fashion shows! — and I kept it together, but rose above it. I’m so thankful I don’t have to defend myself and work as hard as the other ladies do to try and convince the viewers of what “really” happened. You’re all smart, you can see for yourself.
At least you never told us to “read between the lines.”
The one thing that does still sadden and confuse me is why my cast members, especially my own family, were back then and still are so ready to believe I would “set Melissa up.” First of all, I don’t play like that. For better or worse, what you see with me is what you get. I don’t scheme and plot and try and twist people’s minds and opinions about things.
Usually people with short tempers don’t have the foresight to be sneaky.
I wish the other ‘Wives would spend half as much time taking care of their kids as they do getting into fights on Twitter. We’d all be so much better off, don’t you think?
This means you Jacqueline!
Second, I have nothing to gain from exposing Melissa. She is my parent’s only daughter-in-law, she goes by our family name “Gorga.” Why would I want anything bad out there about a Gorga? She’s my only brother’s wife, the mother of my godson, and my daughter’s godmother. She may not have any family loyalty toward me, but I have it toward her and I always will.
Save it post-divorce.
I’m just so over all of this backwards, made-up drama.
We are too. Time to go back to scripted drama. Revenge on ABC is pretty good.
When I found out — by Danielle outing Melissa on WWHL, not by Melissa owning and admitting it — I forgave her. I truly don’t believe she would forgive me for something that evil, but I did forgive her. I didn’t wait for a year to see how I would look on TV to forgive her. I did it right away. Yes, I wanted my family to be whole that bad!
So why keep bringing it up? Doesn’t sound like you’re over it.
The only thing that made any of this a big deal is the fact that Melissa freaked out, ran into the bathroom, and right away called my brother and said she’d been “set up.” What? You’ll see my face next week when everyone immediately jumps on the “Melissa was set up” train. I’m so confused. First, because I don’t think the big incident was really that big a deal. I didn’t like to hear it or be put in the middle of it in a creepy, unexpected way, but it was no ambush. (And I think I know ambush!) The guy said, “Hi, remember me?” and LEFT.
Thanks. Now that I know what happens, I don’t have to watch this fallacy of a show.
But conveniently the other Housewives, the ones with the matching blogs every week, came to the same exact conclusion right away: Teresa set Melissa up! What, what, and what? And again: what? It doesn’t make sense for me to do, they had absolutely no proof, the guy himself denied I had anything to do with it, but the truth doesn’t matter to them.
As long as you’re their whipping post, they have something to keep the cold hearts warm at night.
But the worst part is my brother, who wasn’t there, doesn’t see it. He believed their crazy story right away, still believes it I guess, and we haven’t spoken for a year. In the end, who got what they wanted? Not me…
At least your husband doesn’t have to worry about his brother-in-law borrowing tools. He already is a tool.
Hello again! Sorry for the late blog two weeks in a row, I’m really slacking!
Now we know where your kids get it from.
I was happy to see Kathy follow her passion for baking and bring it to a new level. She’s super talented, and I wish her nothing but success in her new endeavor. Just remember Kathy, the Manzos are willing to taste test at any time!
Caroline would be happy to sabotage Lauren’s diet.
I am thrilled for Lauren; Cafface is absolutely gorgeous and she is doing a phenomenal job, but more importantly, she’s happy.
Thin=happy Are you going to put that piece of advice in your book?
Ashlee is doing very well in California. Yes, she’s had some growing pains and has made her fair share of mistakes, but she was back home a few weeks ago and she has made some very positive changes. She’s growing up and taking responsibility for herself. We all knew she had it in her; maybe the California sunshine had to bring it out?
Glad she left the bad influences back in New Jersey. I’m referring to you, Big Red Clown.
The Posche fashion show is proving itself to be a memorable event year after year, wouldn’t you agree? Are we gluttons for punishment or suckers for fashion, that’s the million dollar question.
I think the million dollar question is – do you like holding the whip?
There is going to be a lot of information thrown at you in the season finale, but first let me just say for the record, I was never a “stripper or a call girl or a whore or a lesbian or a drug user” as my sister-in-law likes put out there for everyone. If I was a stripper, I would say I was. I have nothing against them, and I am definitely way too smart to deny it. I would have to be a fool to think I could get away with stripping and go on a reality TV show and no one would ever find out. Come on, you have to give me more credit than that.
I remember when you joked with Teresa in the RV about making a sex tape to get your career started. I don’t think you’re going to jumpstart your pseudo-singing career with this stunt.
Now on to the Sunday’s episode. I wish I could have been a fly on the wall when those two “masterminds” were putting this together. Are we really supposed to believe that this is just all one big coincidence?
Well, it’s how production planned it. You got the script.
First, I find it hard to believe that Teresa just so happened to go to a random hair salon to get her hair and makeup done before going to the Posche Fashion Show. We all see her get her hair done at home each week, and trust me, she does not like to try out new people when she knows she will be filmed and photographed.
Bravo is sending her a paycheck so she has to be there when they tell her to.
Second, the salon has a creepy PR manager that greets them and hands out champagne to their “housewife customers” and just so happened to work as a manager at a gentleman’s club. Interesting career move. I wonder how one goes from gentleman’s club manager to a public relations professional? I guess he wasn’t that good at his job, because the salon is now closed.
Oh snap! Bitter much?
What I love most about this scene is Teresa looks like she has stood in front of a mirror and practiced what face she was going to make for the last two weeks. For a second she actually looks confused, I think she forgot which face she was going to use, then in typical Teresa ah ha fashion she remembered and went with it. Pretty good, pretty good.
Teresa should just get a SAG card and screw reality tv.
But your family knows you all too well, sister. Then it cuts to a one-on-one of Teresa saying, “I heard rumors that Melissa was a dancer and now this just confirms it.” Way to give me the benefit of the doubt. Looks like she is just going with this one. This is all just so convenient now isn’t it?
No one really cares if you were a dancer or not. People really want to know how this affects Teresa and her relationship with her family and fake friends. Teresa, Teresa, Teresa. Sorry Melissa, you’re just playing second fiddle to your sister-in-law.
Back to the salon, Kim looks like a pig in sh– and Teresa takes the chance to say, “Please don’t ever talk about my family.” I guess only she and her husband can call me a gold-digging, raccoon-faced, lip-synching, fame whore, leave-my-husband-for-a-richer-man kind of girl. But not the creepy, fake PR guy. OH NO!
Well, if you can’t hear it from family, who can you hear it from?
Andy Cohen Denies the New Jersey Producer Scandal
Valley Val discovered that Andy Cohen, the man behind the housewives shows at Bravo, is denying the producer manipulation that is rumored to have gone on at the Posche fashion show last year. Famewhorgas blog is reporting that they have insider knowledge that it was fired producer Cat Rodriguez that was texting show star Jacqueline Laurita as the fashion show unfolded. Rodriguez allegedly told Laurita that co-star Teresa Guidice was responsible for a former co-worker of Melissa Gorga talking to Melissa at the fashion show. The funny thing is – all the co-worker said to Melissa was hi. Scandalous. Perhaps that wasn’t enough drama for the season finale so Rodriguez had to amp it up by feeding information to emotionally fragile Laurita. Famewhorgas blog is also reporting that the producer – Cat Rodriguez – was let go by the production company for conflict of interest after the fashion show.
Andy Cohen addressed charges by tweeting this:
Judging from comments on this blog, people no longer care. That’s right Bravo – you’ve jumped the shark with this one.

Jacqueline Laurita was the speaker at an Autism Speaks event yesterday. Tom Morro, who used to be Kim G’s PR person, covered the event for Fox Morning Extra according to Reality Tea. Tom reported that the event was held at the Brownstone and attended by Laurita’s co-star Caroline Manzo, husband Al, and kids Chris, Albie and Lauren), especially since the event was held at the Brownstone. Tom mentioned that there was: “no sign of the other New Jersey cast – Teresa, the Gorgas or Wakiles.” Adding that “Caroline was sweet”. Tom shared, “Jax admitted she was quite nervous, more specifically- ”scared shit” about giving a speech in front of the crowd, she said it’s very different from being in front of camera,” but that she did a great job with a heartfelt speech.
Teresa Giudicewill be in PARAMUS, NJ, at the LORD & TAYLOR HOME STORE today for an appearance. She tweeted this morning “I will see you today!!! 1-3pm”. That’s local time – not west coast blog time. Update: Teresa is at a soccer game this morning. When she tweeted the news out, Andy Cohen replied back “
@Teresa_Giudice where’s MILANIA???!!!” Perhaps Andy was just being nice, but maybe he’s trying to “make nice” with Teresa, since it’s clear she’s got a large amount of fan support.
And Melissa reminds us to take some time out of our busy day and workout. (Thanks Boston).
