Danielle Staub Encourages Teresa to 'Be Strong'
The former Housewife has kind words for the RHONJ star.
Teresa and Joe Giudice have been dealing with the aftermath of their sentencing, surrounding themselves with the love and support of their family and friends.
Now, one person who Teresa might not have ever expected to show compassion is coming forward: Danielle Staub.
Appearing on Access Hollywood Live Wednesday morning, the former RHONJ star offered words of support for Teresa, who will be remanded to prison January 5th after being convicted of fraud.
"From my heart, I love you girl," Danielle said.
Extra host Billy Bush questioned Danielle's motives for appearing on the show, suggesting it was for publicity. But Danielle insisted her empathy for Teresa is not for the cameras: "I'm genuinely reaching out to her, giving support," he said. "People need to realize, she's a mother. Those people don't see her as anything but a mom."
Danielle also hinted that she is open to reconciliation. "I don't expect her to reach out to me," she said, "but I would love her to. I just want her to know that I'm here for her."
Danielle sat down with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live in September of 2013. Watch a clip.
