Danielle addresses the controversy surrounding her past.

on Jun 2, 20090

It seems everyone may be feeling I have this harshness about me, I promise you it is only because I am broken to pieces inside. To all the ladies who I respect and only desired to be a part of, I would like you to know me and see my heart.

I would like to thank my best friend Tommy, who has gone through it all with me and is the only man I have ever trusted, and is my constant source of friendship and love throughout the past twenty-eight years of my life. God bless you and I love you Tommy.

With much warmth,
Danielle

Hi Danielle, Not sure if you are reading this.. I am sure you have got this earlier from a lot of ppl..however this episode jus telecasted in India...so...jus watched the episode where you are invited to Brownstone for a benefit. I understand the family invited you so their baby could get help with the cancer..let me get to the point here..I felt you really had a heard from sometime when you shared your broken home past...honestly felt bad about how ppl treated you.. however after watching this episode where you bring your uninvited friends pretending to be in danger..well this showed your true color...you used the baby's cancer benefit to get back at Caroline...no one can ever forgive you...you jus lost it there.....how sick can you be?????????? jesus christ...its a benefit for the baby for god's sake....you create trouble....over and above that... you accuse the brownstones????u r lucky they did not stop you from entering the premises....remember u were invited by the baby's family not the brownstone...u did really terrible...u r not a good person. Dina respected you a lot..gave you a chance;......u really lost it...

danielle, I read YOUR book and I loved it, it was a little sad at times, but it helps to know where you come from and what you went through, everyone has sleletons in their closets, it is just some are really good at hiding them and we are not all born with Silver Soons in our mouths. I respect you and we all know that you paid a price for what went down, but you were really at the wrong place at the wrong time, You and your daughters are beautiful and classy, wish you would come to pensacola to do a book signing, please keep your fans in the loop as to what your next endeavers are or we will miss you. take care abd god bless

danielle, I read your book, "not the other one" and yours was a great book, I loved it but it was a little sad, but we all go through things, although all of our wrongs are not exposed, when we are young like you were, we are still adolesants, still learning and if we have no one for guidance and advice and that really cares, then we survive the best way we can, not all of us are born with a silver spoon, and unfortunately, there are are some unforgiving people out there, "DO NOT JUDGE , LEST YEE BE JUDGED:. They have to forgive if they want forgiveness from our Lord God in Heaven. This was not even their business, You are a beautiful woman and so are your daughters, I wish you all the best"Love, Light and Peace, dont leave all your fans hanging, let us know what will be going with you so that your "true Fans; can continue to follow you, I could not imagine not seeing you in the public, why dont you come to pensacola, fl for a book signing, I think you would surprised to see how many followers you have.

write us back, we miss ya, and oh what a lady you were on the reunion show, OMG, awesome, sincerely, stephanie in pensacola fl

You are sooo loony! You mustang know, right? You say that you don't care about any of the other housewives yet you constantly get anxious, nervous, amd agitated everybody TIMe you have to deal with them. A normal logical Personal can admit when they are wrong. Somehow, you can't. Think about that. Think about the mistakes you can own up to...... Then you can finally come closer to being normal. Right? Omg, Gina

Danielle,

I feel sad for you b/c I know how you feel. It stems from growing up and never feeling loved or worth anything. My mother did not give me up for adoption but I wish she had to someone who would of loved me. She was a wicked woman and took every opportunity verbally and physically abuse me. I grew up lost and found myself at times traveling down the wrong path. It took me a long time to move on and turn things around for myself. You are made out to be the "bad" one all the time. People take advantage of you and try to tear you down everywhere you turn. You have to remove the "cyst" or it will continue to grow. Your children are beautiful and you need to focus on them. Don't let these"mean" girls walk all over you anymore. Let it go and you will be able to LIVE AND LOVE. Redirect your focus and energy on those beautiful children. Forgive and Forget...

Danielle Im so sorry the way that family has treated you. Seems anyone who looks up about a person past is really trying to start problems. Also You have more class in your finger than that family has between all of them. Teresa talks about she is a lady, she is a drama queen who has no class, and hasto get violent to get attention. The whole family hasto be like a bunch of animals who can't stick up for the rights and wrongs. God bless you Danielle, I wish I could be your friend. But unfortunatly im not rich by any means.

Danielle, I pray you read this...I was never into any Real Housewives and I happen to catch my sister watching a marathon with her friends at the house on DVD then turning on the tv and watching the new episodes. If I could ever meet you I would tell you to let it go. I think those woman isn't worth it. They make there self look stupid. You never talk about them on season two they follow you like they're obsessed with you.I think you did the womanly thing by walking away when Tersea spoke to you. I real woman would have never done that and for her to put herself higher than you proves she just everything she calls you. I would have done the same thing except I'm from the country so I might actually would have hit back. I think you're a great lady I would do some things different but in your circumstance we probably done the same. I applaud you for handling thing the way you do cause I would probably go crazy if I had to deal with people like that especially Ashley. I wouldn't argue with a child on facebook cause that's exactly what she is cause only kids do that. I would leave it alone and just report her and go all the way through with it because people should raise there kids better instead of giving them warnings cause obviously it don't work. I hope you have a blessed day and yes you are a great woman no matter what those haters on the show say your a great woman because who are they to judge cause everybody done made mistakes in there life and if you learn from them and move on and make your life better than you're better than the one sitting on the sideline criticizing you.Obviously they wish they can make that type of improvement in their life

Danille, I feel very sorry for you, I am not writing this to judge you. But sometimes you handle things in a wrong way. Forget about who you have to talk bad about, forget everyone, and go forward! You have the most beautiful girls in the world, take care of them and make your life all around them,don't look back. I think Dina is a good person, and really means what she says. Pray for people you think hurt you. and just live a quiet life and a modest one too, for your children, I know you love them and they love you, that's all that matters. God be with you.

Why is it when you try to change for the good someone is always there to bring you down,The past is the past,Maybe they should deal with what they did in the past and leave you alone.I would say more but they might put a Hit on me. Keep smiling Danielle and stand your ground.Gail

Danielle, Your children are your salvation. Your past doesn't matter. Keep being the loving Mom that you are. Your daughters have a vulnerability and preciousness that few possess. A million dollars could not buy it. The road might seem bumpy at times but you are Chosen. Ignore the press and all other housewives - they do not have the cross that you bear and your road to enlightenment. I was going to say "God Be With You" but God is already with you. Just realize it and blossom to your fullest potential. Your Sent Angel Ona.

Danielle;

Doll don't let the other get to you about your past. A person's past is the past and those other ladys to me must have something in their lives going wrong to have to keep drilling you about your past. This i coming from a straight male in Tucson Az that would love to even meet you in person. Keep a smile on your face and a song in your heart gorgeous. Jeremy

Truely Yours, Jeremy

Danielle- amazing transformation! You went from such a tainted past to living in an amazing house and being on a TV show. Any tips? How did you manage to clear your name and get it all together? What type of industry do you work in now? Do you work? Take care. Dont let the haters get you down. We all have skeletons in our closets.

Hi Danielle, Just watched the episode about "The Book", and it seems to me the women that are spewing about your past are the ones wearing the biggest crosses around their necks and what that tells me is they are the biggest fakes. If you want to flaunt your supposed "christianity" then don't do what they are doing. At least your honest about your mistakes!!! I have far more respect for the fact that you are a real person with real flaws. Good luck finding "true friends"!

hello Danielle, i am from Australia and 38 years of age. I think you are a VERY STRONG women i relate to you as i to have a bad past which i belive like you the past is the past and we choose to let those we love and trust to know the truth! As for the way you confronted the other ladys at the dinner table with the book that was very brave of you, you need friends that are like you and me not people like those nasty fake women. I have a wonderful fiacee that excepts my past and loves me for who i am today. We are getting married in October. Keep STRONG and stay true to yourself Godbless to you and your beautiful daughters.

Danielle, I think you are a beautiful and stong woman and whatever happened in your past (whether good or bad) is none of anyone's business! People who are insecure about themselves try to tear others down. Don't let those girls get to you! You are an inspiration to all women to overcome adversity. Take care!

You are my fav housewife. It was totally wrong how you were treated. Especially in front of your children. Keep your head up high. You shouldn't have to explain anything about your pass. We have all made mistakes. Any one who judges you for your past is just trashy.

Danielle,

You are a wonderful woman. You are 100% real. I could tell their were times you wanted to get ghetto fab, but you held your composure. Where I come from, women do not flip tables. We may flip another woman, but a table? Come on now....lol. Everyone has a past. I have been trying to figure out why Dina would think you were jealous of her? I look at you and then Dina, I still don't get it. You are one of my fav's on the show, and I don't have many.

Sending much Luv from AZ.

Danielle I think you have come a long way baby! Just tone it down a bit. When you you become dramatic, you overshadow the others in a negative way. so if you tone it down a bit, they will get all the negative coverage.

Danielle, past is past everyone should move on in my eyes this is no big deal, but the real problem is you not leading a productive life working out and plastic surgery is not everything, work part time help out in the soup kitchen serving the poor contribute give of yourself do something and the Drama will end.

Danielle- I know I'm a little late to comment but I just got done watching a re-run of the episode! A lot of my family is from Jersey and I have to say, Teresa did handle it the Jersey way! I don't think you should have brought the book to her dinner party! I also think that your daughters shouldn't have been there! Glad your daughters do stick up for you though. If you wanted to converse the situation you should have invited everyone yourself, not someone else's party!!! In a way I do think you deserve what you got, but then again, ehh, I'm not to sure what to think about the situation myself! You handled the problem in a good way- I guess. Well, thanks for taking your time to read my post and I will keep watching! :)

Wow !! What an impressive survivor you are. I think you have left beinng a victim far behind in terms of who you are today. It is not possible to forget the things that happen to us as children It becomes part of our hard wire, The progress we make, with the knowledge about our past,is the soft ware we add to our present.

When you try and explain some of your behaviour and needs,based on your past, it is not done so as to make excuses. It is providing information for the listener to intergrate into their perceptions of who you are today.

The listener has to be an intelligent compassionate and non judgemental person to hear your story and learn about your makeup today. I didn't see anyone in the Italian family very capable of doing so. I think you may ahve one person who is perhaps a candidate and it would surprise you if I said who i thought that would be. I will hope the best for you and your new life.

Hi Danielle! I just finished watching the second part of the reunion and I'm stuck and unsatisfied as to what Caroline was talking about? I'm not sure if we will ever know, but I want to let you know that no matter what you've done throughout the show you've really kept your head up and have been really strong. It really broke my heart to hear about your past and I'm so sorry you had to go through all of that but I want you to know I'm on your side! It takes guts to apologize for everything on national tv and to tell the whole world about your past life. I hope all goes well for your and wish you the best of luck, you are an amazing woman. Can't wait for season 2!

Hi Danielle I just want to say that I believe you. I believe you are telling the truth and the whole truth about the book. Now that you have shed some light on your abusive past, I find what you have to say to be true. I was in an abusive relationship also, and my partner after I left him, told viscious lies and mean things about me, he even succeeded at getting my fired from my job. I too grew up in an abusive home and your story falls in line with many women I know who have backgrounds like ours. I see you as a defensive woman and maybe this man has turned you out to be. But there is hope. I am a christian woman now and my faith and hope comes from God. And just like you I would look at other people and long for a family like theirs. But I learned the hard way. That family you so desire to be apart of has their skeletons also. Never covet what someone else has it always turns out for the worst. I will say I am proud of you for standing up for yourself when you were ganged up on. I pray that you find peace and know that you are loved unconditionally more than you ever think or even imagine. God will make a way for you if you trust Him God bless!

Danielle, Something awful happened to you I do believe that. When we are children we have no choice as adults we do. Your move upward has only been geography from what I have seen on the show you have not defined yourself yet. Your explanation on this is "I am a victim" a victim is something you choose to be. You have children, daughters Danielle a girl who is watching you define . yourself through men in the most disgusting and demeaning way. Change Danielle, change for your daughter stop the excuses, lies and self pity focus on being more drama brings trauma and people can choose not to be around it

Danielle: What is the problem you have with Dina? I never understood why you wanted so badly to have her as a friend? Did she do something to you previously? Are you jelous of her? What has she got that you wanted so badly?

Viewer

Daniell: I give you all the credit in the world for what you did. You stand up to what you belive in and didn't back down. The past in the past and it should stay there. Everyone does make mistake and if anyone tell you different they are the one who is lying. I don't blame you at all for bring the book there because that is the only chance you had with everyone there. You are a very brave person. Dina need to get a life and also her sister. If Dina say she doesn't care and then why does she always talk about it. You are so right about something else. That family need to let other people have friend outside the family. You are the victim and they shouldn't treat you that way. Like I said that past in the past and it should stay that way. Enjoy you kids and I really hope that you find that love. Keep your head up and stay strong.

Danielle,

Chica, keep your head up and stop trying to be friends with people who dont like you. When someone doesnt like you anything you do make them hate you even more, regardless if it's negative or positive. One thing to remember, when a woman is beautiful everywhere you go you have haters. Get used to it. They honestly hate you because they're so jealous of you. You're tall and beautiful and THEY'RE NOT!!!!

GO MAKE NEW FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Danielle- WE LOVE YOU! Both my partner, Shane, and I watched NJ Housewives regularly. We often felt that you were singled out...there was no one else for them to project their negativity on. You are beautiful & you make us laugh! Hold your head up. Thank you also for taking a stand when Teresa's husband threw the word "Gay" around like it was something bad. That means a lot to our community across the country. We found it very offensive, and we thank you for being the one person who had the "balls" to say something. Please don't let that family's drama make you feel worse of yourself. You are beautiful & you have a lot to offer. I hope your good friendship with Jacqueline can be preserved, but as for the rest of them... F#(K THOSE BITCHES! Much love- Zac from Knoxville, TN

If others felt uncomfortable about the book, they should have approached you individually and asked about it. From there made a decision whether they want to continue a friendship or not. The way the other ladies dealt with everything was very childish.

Danielle, I just have to say that you are the shyt! It must have taken so much courage to be amongst enemies and to still stick up for your self. The other cast mates portray you as being the underdog, ur the top dog girl! My absolute favorite thing you said at the famous dinner party, was "were all fucking Italian"! I love you, and btw thanks for supporting us gays!

Danielle, when I watch the show I often find myself frustrated, not with you, but with the way you allow people to treat you. You're gorgeous and strong and your heart is in the right place, but why, Danielle? Why do you let them treat you like this? The men, the other women, the guy you dated. I'm appalled by the way you seem desperate for the attention of people who refuse to understand anything about you or your past -- why are you selling yourself short? You're better than that, and you're more complicated, deep, and passionate than your Jersey-girl facade lets on.

hello fine lady and i do mean lady ! after watching you in the show that u was standing up for your self and was very respectfull about it i feel that you was not only right about it but hadled your self excellent about it !those 4 other females was such assholes they dont deserve to be called your friend only one does that allso stood up for you at the table! they need to not only grow up but allso they need to learn from your great exsample of being a lady and a fine person as well! and for them to stop being gelious of you because your heart mind soul beauty and brains stand above them like no tomorrow but you dont flant that ether you are just you ! Im just suggesting to tell them f off andget better friends fo you truely deserve better ones from louist RI ps show them this so maybe the will get a grip and a clue on how to be a person and a lady !!!!!

My darling Danielle, I have watched every episode of Jersey Housewives, every time it is on. I just wanted to let you know that I am totally in LOVE with you. Don't get me wrong...not in a sexual way....but in the way that a woman can love other women as a great friend!!!!!! Just from watching the show I feel so close to you.... I sometimes sit and cry for you as my heart breaks when I see the tremendous hurt in your eyes. I am a 55 yr old married mom of four, and yet I wish I could be your Caroline! You work so hard to raise your girls with the mannors and ethics that you do I have such respect for you! My mom was a single mom with no help either so I KNOW it's not easy. I can also sympathasize with your feelings about "The BOOK" I also did ALOT in my younger days ...but Thank God no one wrote about it! Because sweetie all I can say is "There but for the grace of God go I" I have not read your book nor do I wish to, I have much better things to do with my time than read shit about someones youthfull mistakes! The way I look at life is that we all pay our dues in some way or other and its no ones damn business how we do it!!! I want to know what the rest of the girls did in their past...hmmmm betcha that would make some book... HUH???? In closing I don't know if you really read these comments.... I hope with all my heart you do and maybe you will see mine and know that there is a "Jersey Housewife" out there that is offering her unconditional friendship and love!!!!! I think YOU ARE GREAT!!!!! YOU GO GIRL !!!!KEEP THE FAITH!! AND NEVER LOOK BACK!!!! Danielle you remember to always hold your head high....you have earned the utmost respect and don't ever let anyone tell otherwise!!!!! GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR GIRLS ALWAYS...............Your friend, (I hope to become) Love Hugs and Kisses,Irene

Danielle, I honestly believe in Dina. I also think it was wrong of you to bring that book to that nice classy dinner. But it was your choice and you wanted to tell them the truth. But like Theresa said there had to be more that just getting arrested and changing your name. It was wrong of you to bring that book to the dinner and that is all I am going to say. Good luck at the reunion.
