Danielle wonders if she and her cast mates will ever be able to rise above the drama.

i love u yur the best houswive bbyyyy far and i think the only reason the other girls dont ike is cause their just jealous of you.by the way never give up and jus keep fighting cause you WILL win!!!

You Rock!
You Rock!

Danielle,

You rock, at first I kept saying well maybe it was going to far, but after seeing what Teresa did at the Country Club she was actually asking for trouble. They all say they want to get over you, yet they put themselves in your way to make it look like you are the problem and you are not. Keep your head up and don't fall to anyone's negativity. No Matter what they say about your past who cares, because if that didn't happen you wouldn't be the person you are now. I applaud you because not many women can come from a rough past and overcome it and raise two great daughters. Your daughters are well behaved, and classy just like their momma....Wish I could say the same about Ashley!

Hi Danielle, I just wanted to let you know that you are the victim. All those women act like mean girls in high school. I use to be the one who beat the mean girls up. So letting you know their all talk and no bite. So you stand up to them, but let them put their hands on you first. My mother always told me " never pick a fight but you better damn well finish it"You hang in there and be strong. Don't let them get to you their weak, I promise.

I know from experience Danielle that peace comes when you finally stop blaming others for everything bad that happens to you....Start taking responsibility, own whatever part you have in, whatever situation you find yourself, and learn how to say you’re sorry...I guarantee your enemies will drop their weapons…

Danielle, don't worry about these people, they need not matter to you or your life. Your children are the only ones who are well adjusted and normal. They are not complete spoiled demanding brats like T's children. Also, beware of Danny. He may be your friend, and I understand that, but being around him, being seen in public with him, is an embarrassment to you. I know you don't see it, but he makes you look bad. He is white trash, ill mannered, and is not well spoken. He makes you look like your as uneducated and classless as he is. Please,please, see him for what he is and let the friendship go.It will be the best thing for you in long run. That man is trouble,and he has no control oer his outbursts, and the language that he uses. It's so humiliating, that I cringe when you are with him and he opens his mouth to talk, and another sentence of butchered English comes out of his flapping mouth. You need to keep better company, people that are educated and know how to speak to others, and that are not embarrassing to be around.

No one's past should be put out in the way your's have been - However, please stop fighting with the other ladies and be a role model for your daughters - They are wonderful and a positive attitude will help them go a long way.

Danielle,

Continue to live your life the way that you want to. DON'T let all those haters and call you "kookoo" for trying to mend your life against your hard luck past. Forget Caroline, Dina, Ashley, Jacqueline and of course, Teresa. I'm sure that they aren't very good friends especially IF they don't want to get to know you better. You honestly make the show.... if they bully you, turn your back and just walk away... take Caroline's advice to both Teresa and Jacqueline before the Fashion Show, Take the high road. Avoid interactions with each other. Follow your daughter's advice as well.... Keep up on the great parenting work.

Danielle....drop the charges, so not worth it!!!! Just raise your daughters let the drama go...lose Danny and both the Kims and move on....I support you, but the drama victim act just makes you seem needy and hurt they dont want your friendship....Your daughters are well mannered and you have done an awesome job with them...keep in mind your actions effect and do embarass them....Stay strong Ma. Love and Light!!!! Karma does come back around...rise above it!

Well, Let's have the truth come out people!!!!

Danielle, after reading Teresa's story about a bankruptcy auction to sell her things to the highest bidder in her home, I believe you were correct in the forclosure of her mansion. Good thing Joe bought that apt above the pizza shop. Maybe Teresa can experience the real world! Everyone has to work hard for what they have. Even the wives of millionaires!

As for you Danielle, I think you are nuttier than a snickers bar. You know this as well. Otherwise you wouldn't be trying to hard to show everyone, well you.

Be careful of Danny bc you are the company you keep! I think you like being around him, bc it makes you feel safe. But how would you feel if you went back to prison? Do you think he would take the blame to get you off the hook? And i'm pretty sure he will toss you once he gets or even doesn't get what he wants out of you.

Lets hope that you ladies have gotten the help you need in order to make your lives a little less dramatic. So with that said, I hope you ladies find peace and get out just as Dina did.

Danielle, I am one of your biggest supporters, and I always try to be honest in my comments. I feel like the show is a high school playground and you're the only child trying to make friends with the 'cool kids.' Everyone you try to embrace all like you but because they have to interact with the cool kids, they have to sell you out in order to not get picked on as well. What I feel like your next move should be is to embrace yourself and your family, be okay with being by yourself. Keep your personal life separate and treat people the way you wanted to be treated.

Honestly, talking about Ashley need to be in a mental house cause she pulled your hair. I think you need to be in one all you do is complain and cry but want people to feel sorry for. Yea Ashley was wrong but i think you finally got what you need to show you nobody playing with you. You act like you in High School worry about your damn kids and stick to your family. "If you don't start stuff it wont be no stuff " learn that quote and handle your family and stop being so dramatic even though you make the show with you think everybody hates on you. lol Nobody gives a crap you just cry all the time. Dang !!

Just read Teresa's belongings are being auctioned and her house is in foreclosure so you were right about that. Enough with the drama and the bodyguards - really unnecessary. Your friend Danny looks shady and I would stay away from him.

Cristina

The more that Danielle becomes engrossed in this "the world is against me" mentality ...i.e. hiring thug "body guards", exaggerating every little comment as a "threat" against her...etc...the more Danielle concerns herself with all of this the more her looks have changed...unfortunately for the worst! I would suggest that Danielle just go BACK to being an adult who doesn't even HEAR the comments/threats/whatever that are said by those with the High School mentality...and allow your inner and outer beauty to return before it's too LATE!

Danielle,

I think the Kim G fashion show may have turned out just the way you wante, with you being the victim once again. They played right into your hands, didnt they?

Try visiting a mental health care professional, one that can prescribe meds.

You and Teresa should actually become good friends. I think you are both from the same side of the "tracks", as my Mom would say. You can take the girl out of the wrong side of town, but you cant take the "wrong side" of town out of the girl.

I have to ask where the hell did this Danny character come from all of a sudden? He looks like the guy who got sand kicked in his face at the beach. He talks a good talk but is beyond immature. And who on earth is Danny's sidekick who always has the most baffled look on his face AND NEVER SAYS ANYTHIHG! It crack up everytime he has a few seconds on camera. To be honest he looks very uncomfortable so I'm curious as what his story is.

You need to wear less make-up and whatnot cause its not becoming it makes you look witchy and like a characature. In one of the "side bars" where you were speaking to the camera, you were wearing a black top and had your hair down and what looked like minimal make-up and I thought that you really looked pretty decent and actually was like OMG, your youngest daughter looks just like you!!!

If this "love and light" is really what you are all about and want in your life by now, you should realize its not going to happen on this show. So in order to live your life the way you claim to want to are you willing to walk away from the craziness that is the HWONJ or stick it out in hopes of getting your own spin-off which is what I really think you are trying to do but you don't have much substance to carry a full season, you've got nothing constructive going on in your own life; not your daughter's modeling career, not this other chick's singing, YOUR OWN LIFE. Before this show, what did you do?

Danielle,

I am glad you are moving on and are staying positive. The greatest lessons to be learned on this show can come from you letting go of your past and embracing the future and about not judging somebody entirely by their past. I love you and your family and pray that you continue to focus on becoming a better person and helping your girls realize their dreams. Stay away from the Manzos--they are not ever going to accept you and it is a waste of your time and energy. You would be much better off seeking new opportunities to explore your talents. I didn't even know that you could sing!!! Out of all the housewives on any of the shows, you have the best natural voice. If all anybody ever looked at was your past, they'd never find your God-given talents. God gave you that voice and that's another reason you should never let anybody put you down and call you trash. Do you think God wastes His time giving something that valuable to somebody that doesn't matter? Every good and perfect gift comes from the Father. That's in scripture. I wish some of your critics would pick up the Bible sometimes and see what it says before judging you!!! Lots of love to you.

You seem to really believe all you say and write. If you're really concerned about your girls, leave the show. Andy Cohen would probably give you your own show like Bethany anyway. It would be good to see you go through instensive therapy as you attempt to come out into the light.....

danielle,

keep up the great work in wanting to change your life.... leave all the other "ladies" on this show alone especially Teresa and Jacqueline.... you have 2 wonderful, mature and great daughters.....focus on them instead of the immature 18 year old.

Praying for you and your girls....

so amazing

Danielle, it's admirable how you are NOT rehashing the events of the show on you blog and not mentioning names. You really are rising above the crowd. It's inspiring. There are so many women who need encouragement. You're the first Real Housewife to really rise above former circumstances and fashion a new life. And we get to see it before our very eyes. Your story is like a show unto itself, how one woman gets a bit of a rocky start, endures the hissess of the snakepit, and emerges with grace, beauty, kindness, class, and real friends. Yours is a true Cinderella story (complete with stepsisters)! There is a handsome prince and fairy-tale ending out there for you. And you've already created the theme song! Danielle, you are a real-life heroine. Keep working toward your new future and the beautiful life you're destined to live. Stay focused, be positive, and keep smiling your gorgeous, sweet smile! Love, light, and laughter to you and your beautiful girls.

Now you are your "playing a character" on a show. Is the show called REAL Housewives of NJ. Lies,lies,lies that's what only comes out of your mouth. I hope your ex-husband has the sense to take full custody of the children, before they turn out just like you! Please take her off next season, she has know credibility.

I come here and read all of the blogs. However, I must say that this blog in particular has absolutely NOTHING to do with what happened on the show. If I wanted to read about what is HAPPENING NOW; I would go to your website that you posted here TOO many times.

So, how about getting back to what the subject at hand should be; THE SHOW AND WHAT YOU WERE THINKING, YOUR REAL TAKE ON WHATEVER, ETC.

Danielle, from watching the stuff that goes on, it seems that you ought to just hang out with nice people. Stay away from tricky, calculating, jealous, manipulative, vindictive, fickle, unhappy people. If you're not 'made like them', then you'll just suffer from their infectious misery. If you hang out with garbage enough, you'll start to stink. And you don't want them to affect your kids, either. You have been working hard to revive and restore your life. Stay away from people who drag you down. You are a star, and it's wonderful to see you shine! It's one of the more positive aspects of the show. You're beautiful, talented, you have a good head on your shoulders and a good heart. Keep doing good work within yourself, and you will continue to shine, like the star that you are. Luv ya!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxox

OK, Please let me be the first mael to have bad spelling on this and doesn't know where the end is going!

First off, yes I am in favour of Danielle ... but I also love Terissa, but Danny has some style. What you see on TV is so - SOOOOOO Different in real life - there are many parts to this.

I don't like how some people have taken to her - and in 2 points out of close to 1,000 post's have to make - but Danielle, there is more to learn than to burn her at first 3 epesodes...

I just hope she is ok, and not too depressed with all the hate that has been given to her! She has had a bad run - and what, we are the ones to finally run the last nail into the coffin? Leve her alone and respect everyone's individule respectful point of view...

Thats all for now.

BTW, Thanks Bravo - Top Chef, very nice - but wee want more cooking not drama on rice on the ground! then spend 30 yrs looking and someone that has droped their rice on the ground... then dramatize it, like its the end of the world - focus on how each make their dishes - short cuts to show how they put it to gether!

Sorry Wrong post.

Go Danielle, Love ya Terissa...

This evening I allowed myself to catch a glimpse of the Jersey Housewives show. After viewing this particular episode, it left me feeling sorry for those so called, grown women acting like thugs, for their behavior was off base, ganging up on Danielle. I've raised a 29 year old, intelligent, mature daughter and a 25 year old, intelligent, mature son. Perhaps if the daughter who pulled Danielle's hair had a positive environment to follow, she wouldn't be in trouble with the law... Young people follow what is demonstrated before them. I've seen nothing but childish bickering against Danielle. I've seen a table overturned in front of children too... It's not funny, but rather sad, for no wonder Danielle is defending herself, from such childish women who seen to not be able to move forward and grow up.

Danielle, I just want to say that I do not condone Ashley's behavior whatsoever, however, I would like to say that you do seem to overdramatize matters on the show. Ashley should definitely know at her age that there are consequences to attacking someone the way she attacked you. You're in the right with that 100 percent. Do what you have to do! On the contrary, come on Danielle please you are a tough cookie, and I know you could stand up to Teresa and everyone else alone. Don't play the victim card because it's quite sickening to see someone that has such strategic plans be such a coward. I don't know if you want to call it a misconstrued form of editing or what, but this is what Bravo is showing us the viewers. I really believe that if you felt like Teresa was attacking you that night than you would have had the episode end with a better result than whining about a little girl pulling your hair. Give us all a break. I mean although I am a Teresa fan i don't condone bullying or physical violence. Send Ashley where she needs to go, but do not blame everyone else for her idiotic actions. Stand up to these women like a woman, or better yet just leave them alone because it seems like noone really cares what is going on with you and your life. I do have to say that after watching Ms. Jacqueline for some time I am annoyed with her more. She really does seem to be quite hypocritical with numerous aspects on the show. Plain and simple, I believe that she was two faced, and she probably did air a lot of things out to you about her conflicts with the family. Whatever Danielle! Move on! Do not make your life revolve around them! I will give it to you that you do have two beautiful daughters who deserve a peaceful, calm, and serene life. Don't get it twisted I have empathy for you, but I back Teresa 110% if you mess with her. Do you want to know why? I'll tell you why. She is the epitomy of a woman who cares about her FAMILY. Please Danielle forget about these housewives and keep up the good work with your daughters.

Danielle, I have enjoyed watching you more than anyone else on ANY "Housewives" show! You're the real deal. You are so much fun. The other ones are mostly self-righteous, judgmental liars and losers, constantly rationalizing their deplorable actions. You're much more relatable than stupid people who flip tables and pretend to be in the Mafia. Puh-leeeze! Love you 4-ever!!!!!

Danielle,

While you overreacted to the situation at the Posche fashion show, Teresa was way out of line and so was her nasty little niece. Boundaries were crossed, an assault occurred and the police did not perform their requisite duties. You should make a formal complaint against them, press assault and battery charges on Ashley and assault charges on Teresa because assault is verbal and threatening while battery is physical.

Keep your head up. That entire family is crazy!

Table Full Of Friends
Table Full Of Friends

I am not sure why anyone be jealous of another person. The question Danielle needs to ask herself is why would you want to be Friends with people who don't want to associate with you. During the Fashion show were you not sitting a a table full of your Friends. And didn't you Friends meet you at the Court House to stand my your side when you filed charges against Ashley. Life is too short, We have all made mistakes in our lives and hopefully we learned from them. Move on you have choices and if they or you choose not to associate with one another then so be it.
