Jacqueline. Jack in the box. You go to meet Derek’s mom. I get that. I even respect that. And for a moment you even had me on that. Wow, she’s come a long way. Then, your daughter says she is 18, Derek is 23, and you say there is a "FOUR year age difference” and that’s what concerns you? Hmmm. Then you talk about Ashley not making the same mistake that you did by getting pregnant. Do you really consider your daughter a mistake? Back to the visit with Derek’s mom. You’re wasted by lunchtime and you are laying on your daughter’s, boyfriend's, mother’s lap feeding each other grapes? Classy, real classy. All I have to say is if you are going to lay on another woman’s lap can you please have it NOT be your daughter’s, boyfriend’s, mother for all of the world to see? Pretty comfortable there Jacqueline. Just sayin’.
Caroline say what you want about me. I don’t really care. But don’t think for one second that you and your family haven’t put me in a position to where I have to surround myself with people that are a little more than intimidating to go anywhere near the Brownstone. You put me in this position, you and your entire family. It’s so easy for you to sit back with your cult of 11 siblings including yourself and their children, following me and my every move. And then to use our TV show to point out that I am the one that is crazy? Teresa had a pretty strong reaction to you shaving your face. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a daughter who is an esthetician like you. Perhaps you could give your daughter some experience on how to professionally remove the hair from your face.
Kathy Innocenti, who we saw in the diner scene with me discussing Emmanuella, was not present the night of the benefit because she had purchased and given me her entire table of 20 tickets so my friends and I could sit down, and eat dinner when we got there. I know it seems like I was trying to have everyone eat for free, but I am the reason over 300 of those guests attended that night, and Kathy will vouch for that. Not only did she give me her table, her daughter was the blonde girl, Patrice who walked me in. Ameil, Kathy and her daughter Patrice printed up all of the flyers that I hand delivered to all of the businesses to bring people in to get donations for Emmanuela. My only goal was to be able to walk in peacefully in a very unpeaceful situation and be able to leave with dignity, yet my intent was not to have happen what happened. In everything that I am, I wanted only what was best that evening for the baby. If you’ll notice as we were pulling up, I was right to anticipate trouble. As Chris announced a Bentley was arriving and I was in it he said, “Nevermind.” Translation: Don’t make room for them. Another one of his shining moments here was telling his best friend’s mother that a big surprise was waiting upstairs and it had nothing to do with us being overdressed. How sad is it that they still try to push the blame off on me when they knew all along they were going to make a problem for me being there? The Manzos took away a table that was paid for and that wasn’t very accommodating. It speaks volumes for the kind of people that they are. I did invite Kim and Danny and he invited his friends who just wanted to donate money for Emmanuella. Period. Eight months later, in the place I am in right now, I realize I don’t need anyone protecting me. If I were invited somewhere now in the place that I am in today – I might not feel the same about my need for a man to protect me. Watching this scene unfold, I can see clearly now that maybe it would have been best if I just went myself.
I love that handbag you had at your nail appt. the tan and blk trim, what is the name of that bag. LOVE IT....!!!!!
I just finished watching the episode and I have to say you seem very vindictive. When Chris said you have a surprise waiting, he meant you guys were overdressed. He even said that to his best friend's mother. On the show, it wasn't said loudly, but he definitely said it. Don't twist it. Also, who brings convicts to a benefit? Maybe if you stop creating drama wherever you go, people will stop talking about you. Just sayin. You shouldn't criticize other peoples' parenting; your parenting skills are highly questionable. How can you present such painful situations in front of your children's eyes? No child should be exposed to this kind of drama. A mother should be a role model to their daughters. Not a drama queen. You say you are a new and religious person; however, being vindictive and jealous is not religious. You should repent and move on with your life and forget the rest.
Danielle is such a attention seeker. Like really come on now u r clearly jealous tht the others have a strong relationship and they wont let u get close. Its sad thtt u would make such a scene when the event was for a sick baby. Your actions were uncalled for and pathetic and you should be ashamed.
Oh course everyone that is trying to prove they are good person surrounds themselves with felons and biker gangs. Your crazy and your new found friend, Kim G. just wants to be on the show.
I hope you get help soon Danielle...I used to really dislike you but now I just feel sad for you. You are pitiful.
Just watched the show. The one thing I didn't understand was who was expected to pay for the dinner of the friends that you brought. It is a catered affair, you didn't tell the catering hall that they were coming, so did you expect that they would all get a free dinner. You didn't tell the catering hall they were coming to set up an extra table, so how could you be surprised that there was no place for them to sit when they walked in. Didn't you ever plan an event or a wedding??? Just saying. I just don't get it.
let people say what they will, u know the truth, and as long as u are happy that is all that matters. who cares what stupid idiotic conniving mean EVIL people say? U are important to ur family and friends, and to ur fans that is all that matters! Eff the rest, love u, keep ur head up
I heard somewhere that "just sayin'" is a one-star saying- that it usually follows something ignorant. ...just sayin'
Danielle get a life. You didn't need protection at the BrownStone. However you really need to get a paying job and stop hanging out with Punks! That Danny better watch himself or he'll end up in prison again. You are not that important to have come to the Brown Stone with all those people. If you didn't let them know that you were bringing your own army that's on you. How can they make room for you if they don't how many people. You have NO CLASS! And your friend Danny is the King of PUNK"S! You talk about everyone else and you just need to stop living like your in a GodFather Movie. Grow up. And you other so call friend Kim G enjoy your 15 minutes of fame. Because you are all LOSERS!
First of all Danielle if you had actually paid attention to the conversation that Christopher had with Kim G you would have seen the caption that clearly said "you are overdressesd." You walked into a room of 500 people that were not carrying a Chanel purse, nor were they in heels and dressed to the nine. Like Christopher said, you were walking into a place where the grand prize was a shotgun, which I'm sure your ex-felons shouldn't have been around anyway, and that the speaker was Elmer Fudd. Point is Danielle you were out of place because of your attire, not for any other reason. You saw the interviews with Caroline and Dina that said "you are more than welcome to be there." And it's funny you needed "protection" but neither Dina, Caroline, Teresa nor Jaqueline were there. THEY had the respect for the family of Emanuella to stay away and NOT cause drama. Sadly, you caused it yourself with your gansta wannabes!!! PAY ATTENTION Danielle, this is all you and no one else! JUST SAYIN'
You acted badly at the fundraiser, no matter how much you try to explain or rationalize. You brought too many people for the room to accommodate. You walked in ready for a scene, you riled up your friend Danny for a fight at an event that should have been peaceful and loving. You should be ashamed of yourself! Just sayin'.
ps Just read the other blogs. Everyone else gave the direct website to donate to the baby's family. You, however, want everyone to go through your "social networking websites". Just sayin'.
hi Danielle, well first of all it seems you are trying to fit into the society of caroline and the others, but it is not worth it, the more you ignore those people it's better I would say its like giving them a smack in the face, hope you understand what I mean!!! with all the actions you did today you are showing them more and more and you put yourself in the spot that people are going to talk more and more about you putting you down and degrading yoy!!!! Think of your kids!!!! imagine the comments that will be said about there mom and it really is going to hurt!!!! You are also showing the rest of the world the kind of people you are involved with and that is not a pretty picture!!!!!Its could you have people that protect you and beleive in you but there is no sense to go overboard with it!!! You are the only person that is putting yourself in that position, meaning you are looking bad and they are looking good if you got my drift!!! I really feel for you and whatever happened in your past its Ok nobody is perfect, and people do get second chances to put your life together!!!!Wo is free of thins let them through the first rock!!!! nobody is perfect and we all learn from our mistakes, your past is past and it is your privacy, and if somebody comes to judge you let it be!!! If you pay attention to them you are satisfying them and thats what they want just ignore and live your present and plan a great future!!! It is never late to construct your life again!! Danielle, when you feel so desperate just go to God while you are alone and pray, he will listen and he will take care of things that bother you and he will protect you. Danielle never feel embarrased about your past, it's all gone!!!!people have worst past than yours and they have learned how to overcome them and be a much better person. Now smile and look foward to a beautful life fill of happiness, stress free and sincerity!!!! Who ever doesn't believe in you they are not your friends and stop esplaing yoursel!!! A true friend is one that accepts you the way you are!!! If they don't want your friendship who cares, You will get true friends when you least espect it. God bless you always!!!! Grace
I love the show but I have something to say.. I just watched the episode with the Brownstone benefit and I am so disgusted. I cannot believe that someone is so insane that they would turn something like a benefit of that importance into their own drama fest. What would ever possess someone to bring like 10 uninvited people to an event like that looking for a fight. how pathetic. there is something wrong when someone feels that that would be a smart and considerate thing to do. think about someone other than yourself. that was an important night and i'm positive everything would have went fine if a giant group of biker men had not shown up. who is that selfish that they would attempt to ruin an event like that for their own personal gain? nothing was obviously going to happen to her if she had just went to the event on her own, and supported a good cause, rather than ruined it. i'm just so upset that there are people out there that would do something like this. people need to learn that not everything is about them and except that. and then on top of making a scene, the owners son said something that was in no way rude or hateful, and these grown men try and fight him. how pathetic. grow up and get a life.
I thought you were going to spend time on positive things like your daughters or spirituality. Why do you not only invite negativity into your life but want to create it in others? You know there's no better lesson than karma. What you fight against, you will ALWAYS fight against. I'm not sure who first wrote this. I read it in some book "A Cherokee Indian once told his grandson 'I have two wolves fighting inside of me. One is full of hate and rage and the other is full of love and compassion.' The grandson asked 'which of these will win?' The grandfather said "the one I feed." I ask you the same thing Danielle- which on of these are you feeding and who do you want to win?
Perhaps a little pre-communication from you directly to the Brownstone about your table arrangement with your friend and then your bodyguards coming would have helped clear up some confusion and embarrassment. Just sayin'. Clear, concise communication usually clears up lots of muddy areas.
You keep acting like you went there for the sole purpose of that sick child, when really you wanted to stir up more problems with the Manzos. Every blog that you write is filled with digs at all your castmates and every move they make. You are the one creating all of this drama in your head and projecting it out onto everyone else. I don't know why I even bother to watch this show anymore, its episode after episode of the same crap with you women...just sayin'
"Intimidating" people? Darling Danielle, there is absolutely nothing intimidating about scum of the earth, ex con ex felon (whatever?) gutter rats. What kind of impression were you trying to make showing up junkies in jeans and rags for shirts spewing obscenities at a fundraiser? And really, what did they do? Nothing. They stood around looking awkward, dirty, and whining, and then left. Hardly impressive, more...tragic. Ugh. I think my flat screen is contaminated just from having their second hand image!
Secondly, Wayne New Jersey? Honey, not something to advertise! There are far better places to live in New Jersey (and not in a decrepit, disorganized house to boot).
You have GOT to stop criticizing the other ladies! You're divorced, broke, and have a record. Glass houses honey...wait! Perhaps that's something to think about...I bet they require less maintenance.
Danielle grow up!!! The more i watch this show the more i realize how right all of the other women are about you. You act like your so innocent but we can all see that your not. You act as if everyone is out to get you but yet every word you say on national television shows that you are out to get them. You have two daughters that you should be setting an example for but yet you act younger then they do. It seems like you care more about what everyone thinks about you rather then how your daughters feel or about how pathetic you act on the show. Seriously get off your high horse and take accountability for your actions!!
Its so funny that you put so much effort into your blog talking about the manzo family and friends, seems like you need to get a hobby.secondly if it is true that you brought all those people with you to donate for the child then where was their donations? We only saw one person donate and it wasn't you, just saying!you are sad diluted woman that I am afraid isn't capable of change it seems you like to say your a changed person but the proof is in the pudding!
You bring all the drama onto yourself. You expect the worst from people because that is exactly what you would do in thier situation. You are a wolf in sheeps clothing.
I totally liked you last season, everyone has a past yours a little questionable but I still liked you. This season you really showed your true colors, it's like you can't stop. Jacquline was your friend she was there for you even when her family disagreed with her and when she did not come to your party (let me add you suppose to be struggling financially)for your daughter you get upset. If you took one second and thought about someone else other than yourself you would have caled or sent flowers to your FRIEND for the birth of her son. You have the nerve to tell someone about being a parent when last season you children discussed all the different men you brought around your daughters. A real mother would have waited until the relationship was serious before you bring men home. To top it off you discussed your sex life on TV. Dina I didn't like last season but your actions has justified her actions. I think you did want to be her friend but if someone don't want you as a friend then move on why keep persuing a relationship with someone that doesn't want it. I think you need professional help, I hope you find a man and GET A LIFE.
Danielle, the Houswive's wouldn't be complete without you. You tell it how it is, and I'm glad that you clarified the paid-for tickets and missing table. I really think that Caroline's sons comment about 'suprise' was simply about his friends mother being overdressed though, because he certainly would not have put his best friend's mother in the situation of not having a seat. You need to take the high road and just stay away from the Brownstone, even if you are invited. You have beautiful daughters you should be proud of. You've come a long way since last year, keep up the good work.
Watched episode for a second time, I disagree with you regarding what happened at The Brownstone. You, your entourgage of Danny & the guys were looking for trouble. Watch the episode again, preferably with that Catholic priest you met with earlier this season. Didn't you tell him you had changed?
Chris told Kim G. she was going to be surprised when she got to the room, b/c she was OVERDRESSED. Chris again explained "Kim G.'s surprise" to his buddies; room was full of hunters--most expensive auction item, a shotgun. Chris said nothing about "Danielle's surprise."
Table set up is a common problem at events/fundraisers, due to "final count" AKA people attending (prior to the event). The people having the event are responsible for telling the site mgr. final count/# of tables. You're charged for the "final count" plus any extra tables needed. If a table is set up and not used, you're billed for that empty table. Danielle, you may have had tickets for a full table, but how many people attended the event that were not included in the "final count?" Sorry to tell you, THEY were the ones that took your table. People having the event are responsible for ticket & table matching, not the facility (The Brownstone).
Teresa's daughters should have worn helmets. I feel they're too young for an ATV; flip over dangers, etc. Remember Ozzy Osbourne's injuries.
Everyone else you "called out" in your blog, DRAMA DRAMA. It's RHONJ, not The Sopranos.
I don't think its healthy for you to be so negative and bring so much negative energy into the lives of these women, who clearly don't care about you enough to "threaten" or "stalk" you. It's clear you're the one who's stalking them, and bringing those cons around doesn't exactly make you look like Kofi Annan. I think you're not only contradicting yourself on the show, but you're embarrassing yourself and your girls. So what if Teresa's husband brought his daughter an ATV, which you dub a boy's toy? and why do you care what Jacqueline's concerns are regarding her daughter? seriously? Is that really what you'd rather be spending your energy on?
Find it interesting that you bash Caroline's child, while if anyone did that to yours, you would be screaming.
Find it interesting that to donate to Emanuela, I have to go through your site; while everyone else's blog provides a direct site to donate.
Find it interesting that you feel the need to promote your book; best of luck with that.
All I have to say is that I am sad for you. I feel let down. I thought you wre better than that and would rise above from last season. I was a fanof yours but so far,you make irrational decisions.. You need to let go. They will not be your friends. Move on..
You're the reason for the show and the reason for the benefit.
You're a brave woman and I really admire you!!!!
your side of the story is becoming harder and harder to believe. i think it may be time you listen to your daughters and some of your viewers and get help. just watch a few of these episodes as a third person and really think about your behavior.
Danielle.... I pray that you will find the light that'll help you to become a better person and to learn how to pick your battles. I remember the episode where you met with a Catholic Priest for guidance. You want things to be positive in your life, but it's hard to believe that with the choices you make. I'm sure you have a big heart and have good intentions, but your actions and choices speak louder! May you truly open your heart and mind to God and truly listen to what He is telling and guiding you to do.
Danielle.....PUH-LEEZE....will you stop saying, "Just Sayin'?" It is incredibly annoying and SO old! Thanks!
I "WAS" YOUR FAN NUMBER 1, BUT AFTER SEEING YOUR ACTIONS ON THE SHOW TONIGHT SHAME ON YOU! NOW I UNDERSTAND THE OTHER LADIES AND DANIELLE AS YOU WOULD SAY " PAY ATTENTION, PUHLEAZE, BUT TO YOURSELF!!
Danielle, I want to say I didn't agree with you showing up with so many people but its clear you understood that. I also want to say that I believe you were judged to quickly by these snaky women who have nothing to talk about except you!! Be straong because I face issues such as these from woman who "hate" best of luck with everything..
are you seriously saying there is no end to Teresa's "butchering of the english language" when you just said puhleaze which let me just say isn't a dictionary word also you really are insane dina doesn't care that much about you she worried for herself not you so get over yourself
I don't think he was being malicious about saying you would be in for a big surprise. He was saying that because you all were overdressed and the theme of the party was hunting and everyone was pretty casual. You weren't even there when he said it and in your interview you said it was said in a "sadistic manner," yet how would you know? Also, you didn't get the full story from your friend, as if you watch the show (which you did) and paid attention to the caption, you can clearly see he is talking about the way you both were dressed.
Danielle, I'm addicted to the show and you're definately one of the reasons I watch weekly. I'm hooked! The scenarios you're involved in are the stuff good reality TV is made of. Additionally, I'm starting to wonder if you really beleive what you say about the other ladies? It doesn't appear that anyone is "out to get you". They all seem to want just the opposit but you keep finding ways of interjecting yourself in their lives. You do realize that if you stop feuling the fire it will die out, right? It's not about them, it's about living your life and raising your children. Realistically, I think jealously is what's at the heart of the issues here. It is abundantly clear that you want to be liked and respected in a deep and meaningful by each of the other ladies. It's a case of wanting to be part of the "in crowd" and they have decided not to allow you access. Wouldn't it be best to collect yourself emotionally, heal, and move on?
Then again, if you did that how interesting would the show be? LOL! U know you're out there - and by that I do mean crazy, but in the most entertaining way. Either way, do your thang! I'll keep watching what happens next! amw
All I can really say to you Danielle is that I am glad that looking back you can clearly see that coming to the Brownstone with your group of "protectors" was a HUGE mistake. You took what was an evening about a sick little girl and turned it into the "Danielle and felon friends show". That was so un-cool on so many levels. I have to say that I have never been a fan of yours, but everyone deserves redemption. I hope one day yours is sincere.
This is really a joke, right...just saying. I mean really people do not really hire out protection like that? I thought this was a reality show...this had to be an act, right?
Danielle, you really need to take a good look in the mirror and understand that you are the problem. They don't want anything to do you with you but, in your crazy world you come to believe that they are coming after you! These are good people they have worked hard to get were they are now, i stand behind them and support their belief in their family. I know that family is lost for you it doesn't mean you have to go destroying others.
All I have to say is that none of us can judge you. You will be judged on Judgement Day and let's just say it won't be pretty.
Love and Light my arse.
I will not send you any money but I will donate to the child through one of the sites that was posted by that family you dislike so much.
You showed your colors tonight - I feel really bad for your 2 beautiful daughters.
