You need to focus on your "greatest accomplishment" your kids! Tell your friend to get on with his hot self and his 80's hairdo!
Here we are Episode Six, the finale.
I want to say how much all of you mean to me! I have so many women opening up to me and telling me how they are completely moved by my experiences in my life. My life journey has thus far been full and difficult to say the least, but all of you are making me realize the reasons why I had to go through all that I have. There are so many of you reaching out to me and filling me with such warmth, love, support and understanding, telling me I am helping you because you have been through the same thing I have. I want to say that while you are thanking me and looking to me for advice, I am so very grateful to all of you who fill me with such joy, happiness and love. It is you that I am thankful for. Thank you for giving me such courage and enlightenment. You are the ones lighting my path. Thank you for showing me how we can ban together and lift one another up. Thank you from the depths of my healing heart!
To all of you who defend my honor and demand respect on FB, I thank you for being my friends and all of you are indeed that! My friends! I will stop what I am doing for any one of you to listen and feel your joy or pain! Anything you need emotionally good bad or indifferent I will do my best to help even if that means to just listen. There is a lot to be said for listening to someone when they speak. I teach my children each and every day to be supportive of other women in life. I teach them to be supportive of others and respect their personal choices, because no one can know or how any idea what a person has been through in life. If you don’t listen and pay attention to someone when they speak, you may just miss learning a vital life lesson that God was trying to teach you by learning from someone else's experience. If you ignore others, you may just have to learn these lessons yourself, the hard way! Like the many lessons I have had to learn on this show. It has been drilled into my head time and again that you need to be equally as open with all women and I ask you to do the same with me. I ask you to pay close attention to instances that involve me that are a double standard on this show. I am certain that each one of you, at one time or another in your life, has met a woman that you instantly clicked with as a friend. Yes, Jacqueline and I met briefly before the taping of the show and I don’t see what is wrong with our instant connection.
You need to focus on your "greatest accomplishment" your kids! Tell your friend to get on with his hot self and his 80's hairdo!
I love the show and all the housewives bring a lot of drama but you all are acting like highschool girls. All the ladies need to grow up especially you because you love to be the victim, please surpass the bad things they said because words are words and Ashley was only defending her mother(someone said you hurt Jacqueline, even if that wasn't the truth). The other ladies problems are their own and please live your life with your blessed and talented girls that are really mature beside all the housewives.
Big and good wishes for your own life, Puertoricans fans
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE READ dani, hi i want you to know that i am intelligent and level headed and i want you to know that i think you are the most sincere person on the show. ...no fakeness, no pleasing anyone, no kissing up to be in the crowd and no hypocrite. what i want to say is Joe (guid) never said anything about you even though the others say stuff..he is alwyas quiet so pls don't say anything about him. and don't say anyhting about the others either. your daughter christine is right..ignore them an dbe nice to them and be quiet if you have to..just like when you did not get in teresa's way at the club but she troubled you. just don't say a bad word about them any more anyou be in love and light. let's see you would come out a winner..you and your daughters!! leave the fakers to themsleves and remebr..no bad words about them again!!! YOUR DAUGHTER CHRISTINE IS ALREADY ENOUGH TO MAKE THEM ALL JEALOUS ESPECIALLY ASHLEY..AND TERESA! HA! YOU'RE REALLY AMAZING AND STRONG
Danielle, We love you . You got them on the run and they deserve everything they get. You are terrific and so are your girls.
i think u are down grading the show u should get of the show with your has been friends. they bring nothing but imbaresment to the show and u with your goonies your a desgrace to the show also. iam going to start a facebook blog to get rid of u.and bring dina back. she showed more class then u will everhave in your lifetime. i dont like to watch the show anymore because of u.
Danielle u really need 2 grow up.... ur kids tell you right from wrong. What happened w/ u being the mom..... sorry the way I see it...... why do u have 2 bother ppl u don't get along w/ ? Move on to real friends. Its a big world. Sometimes ppl just need to go in different dirctions...... live & be happy... stop all the kids games ( drama) you may find u might get a friend.......
I love you Danielle! You are one hot single mom! I absoultely love you on the show! You make the show without you the rest of them would have nothing to talk about! They would not even be a show! You make the show interesting for sure...and its all about entertainment!
Unfortunately, your first instinct is to reverse anything anyone says and put a negative spin on it. When Chris said you were in for a surprise, he only meant that you were overdressed for the occasion, but you had to put a different meaning on it. Grow up. Your girls are more mature than you are. Get a job!!!!!!
oh my lord. you are an insane person who is acting like its high school. getting the bully to have your bacK? so awkward and your poor kids who totally get it. I cringe every time you say something... HAHAHA I guess thats why its entertainment?! yelp -no really HELP
Danielle, Your so beautiful and a Great Person Perfect in every way, So now that we have that out of the way. Try to focus on being the things that you think you are. Talk about your kids. NOT DENA Gossip about the mailman NOT CAROLINE Be thankful for what you have. NOT JEALOUSY FOR TERESA
hi danielle, how r u,i hope fine.i started looking at ur show in the middle,loved it ,so i looked at all the reruns.i felt very bad for u because it looked like u were being ganged up on. i want to tell u this as a christian woman that in the eyes of God we r all sinners so do not let anything or anyone get to you.all who r calling u names have not walked in your shoes.please if i was u i would not talk about them,i would not even make any comments about them,they r not worth it.concentrate on yourself and your beautiful daughters and by the way u should listen to them,kids are very smart!!!!!!you should look at the shows and you shall have more knowledge,just do not react let things happen if anyone wants to be friends let them come to you.remember what i said say neither good or bad and you will be the better person God Bless and keep it cool
Hi Danielle. Just wanted to say i love the show, but you are my favourite lady in it..! you are gentle but tough strong and delicate!! hooo i wish i had your balls!! lol...everyone makes mistakes in their life! i bet everyone of those who critised you have skeltons in the cupboard!! no one is perfect.. you are cool... I miss you now the show has eneded good luck Danielle.. from Beth in the UK... xx
I couldn't read all of this blog. It was so long-winded. I hope you can get to a place where you can put all of this behind you. I feel like the drama is stoked by your strong negative feelings about Caroline and Dina. I'm not saying the feelings are or aren't justified - but by allowing them to fester inside you you are only hurting yourself. You should read the book Dina gave you "The Power of Now". I say this seriously. It's helped me in my life. I truly wish you happiness and peace.
keep a stiff upper lip. i know you want friends and want to be accepted but don't try so hard it makes you look desperate and gives those others entirely to much power over you. after seeing the reunion shows over and over again i began to see you in a different light. everybody wants to be loved.
hello,my name is aaron i just wanted to say that your cast mates so called friends had no right to do what they did to you like they say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
I DON'T SEE A POST WHERE SHE SAYS SHE DIDN'T MEAN TO TALK ABOUT LINOLEUM FLOORING. I SEE NO REASON FOR BASHING AN INANIMATE OBJECT LIKE A FLOOR. IT MAKES US ALL LOOK LIKE JERSEY GIRLS WITH CHEAP HAIR EXTENSIONS AND EVEN CHEAPER FLOORING. I WAS VERY OFFENDED BY THAT COMMENT. I HAVE ALWAYS HAD LINOLEUM BECAUSE I CANNOT AFFORD TILE OR WOOD IN MY KITCHEN. I FIND MYSELF APOLOGIZING THESE DAYS FOR MY LINOLEUM FLOOR, AND OFFERING UP THAT I ONLY HAVE IT UNTIL I GET MY REAL FLOOR.
Danielle, Where there is smoke there is fire... Everyone lives in their won reality but how exactly did you meet your ex???
Your past is your past. I feel for you that the bad choices you made in your youth have been exposed for all the world to see. We ALL do stupid things when we're young, and some of us do REALLY STUPID things that we pray will never surface. You're too smart NOT to have known that this stuff would come out when you signed up for the show though, right? In any case, I hope you make more authentic choices from here on out and take care to not repeat the past.
In addition, I just want to say that every show has to have a villain--an Alexis Carrington--to make it worth watching. The show would be totally boring without you, so take it to the bank and make a nice life for you and your daughters.
Hi Danielle, As I'm sitting and doing my homework my daughter sits down and turns the tv on your show (reruns) I AM IN LOVE!!! You and I are so much alike it's unreal, and I'd love to be your friend in real life and hang out. Those other women on the show are B****'s so you don't need them in your life anyway! it's only because of your past that makes you the great woman that you are today and I toast to you!
Danielle, you are truly a good person who got caught up with the wrong crowed many many years ago,what happen in your pass is none of thier bussiness.but i saw for myself how dina was jealous of your realtionship with jacklyn,that family clams to be a loving family, they are not very nice people at all and wouldn't want any of them in my family.i also come from a very big Italian family the only difference from us is we are also a very caring family we forgive and forget because life is way to short, Tearesa and Jacklyn were never your friend they are phony's. how they followed you the night on your date when that guy didn't show up,they cheered to (here's to friends to don't leave a friend hanging) what was that about? all lie's from so called friend's you don't need them thier all losers and you are the winnner, that's how i see it. you had ever right the bring that book to the table,they couldn't handle the truth that's why dina had to go running to big sister for some help. they are all stuck up bitch's who will never know what true friendship is all about. good luck to Danielle in all you do and remember your the winner here.
Daniel, I would have brought the book out at the dinner table as well!!! You had them all in one room at one time and seemed the only way to get it out and bury it. Ok, now it's done. So go on with your life, enjoy your successes and children. I'm not a fan of any one of you, however I do defend your decision.
Danielle, You are a classy classy woman and the only one among this miserable bunch of women that shows integrity and honesty (well maybe Jacqueline does a small amount). They are all loudmouthed, vulgar, uneducated bullies, that like to throw their weight around pretending they are something other than stupid. Hang in there, you deserve better than the treatment you have received from these false friends.
Danielle, at first I didn't like you very much. But, watching how the others treated you and rejected you for a lifestyle you got yourself into 20 some years ago, I have learned to respect you. caroline acts like a Mafia Mama -- controling everything and everyrone. I know lots of mass. italian contractors and believe me , NONE of them live in houses like Teresa's. Got to be Mafia money there. If her husband was upset at how much she spends, he should not give her access to so much. Judge ye not, lest ye be judged also. Jacquline was the only compassionate one in the bunch, but she will side with family in the end. Move on and find some other friends.
Why so much rage with Danielle? Why did you get so furious with the ladies reading the book. You emphasized your anger toward the wrong people. What about your ex-husband? You handled this very WRONG! You say that the book is full of lies. Did you sue your ex-husband? What did you do to keep the book from ever being published? Why blame the ladies for questioning your integrity? You shoul've been the bigger person and confided with Jacqueline who you claim was your best friend instead of sitting there pretending you were crying and no teasr rolled down your face. I noticed you did this a lot. You convinced me you are so desperate for attention. Someone who has been engaged for 19 times and been married a couple times shows they're unsecured about themselves. You need to seek help from a therapist. Insulting someone about having lonolium was not nice. You are being supported and cannot afford to live in the house you're in. Before you start critizing other people, take a good look at yourself. If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all.
All of the women on this show have some issues. If they didn't, it wouldn't be worth watching and Bravo wouldn't be wasting their time with it :) That said, I really feel that Danielle may have borderline personality disorder. It's not going to be possible for Danielle to have a healthy and functional relationship until she is ready to see her part in creating what happens in her life and relationships. She does provoke and attract drama. She does project herself as a perpetual victim. Her dating choices completely contradict what she claims to want. The bottom line is, Danielle, you aren't going to attract a healthy, stable and honest person until you have cultivated those qualities in yourself. I know it's hard to see outside of the victim box when you are depressed, but with some therapy and maybe some medication you can begin to see yourself more clearly and become yourself what you seek in others.
I understood your reactions through the entire series after I watched the reunion. I heard how you have been going through so much in your childhood and now adulthood. I understand totally why you were on the offensive side. I would have been also if the shoe was on the other foot. The families that you were trying to be apart of were not really worth it except Jacqueline. Dina was okay as well she just tries to make her big sister happy be your own person Dina. Caroline is miserable with her boring life she doesn't know what to do with herself. So she decides to but in your life. So what you have a book,so what you have a younger boyfriend. so so what you are who you are and your not ashame of that. We all need to be more like you. Stop hiding behind our family and just be you. Either you like it or you dont so what get over it. Danielle I love you I respect you, you keep your head up and keep your eyes on the prize. And remember the lord will bring people in your life for a reason and for a season. That season is over lets start with a new one. God Bless!
Danielle, I am sorry to have heard about your past, no one should have to endure the pain you have. However, you try to be a classy lady but fail each time. You say you want to be accepted by this family, but you bring a very controversial book to a private fun dinner & are shocked when you get the response you got!!!! Are you kidding !!!!
I think it would be best if you part ways from the rest of the housewives. There is too much bad blood. I don't know how you threatened Deana, but being Italian myself, it will not be forgotten. Blood is and always will be thicker than water. Get out now with some of your humility in tact.
You are UNREAL!! How dare you show up at the family dinner and throw that book on the table and then act hurt and betrayed as they fought back!!! You have serious issues and I question your stability to raise your children to NOT be like you! You are very Imature and you want family stability so bad that you are willing to try to break into a family you are not part of!! Grow up, Find your OWN Family and move the F on!!!! Why are you even on the show!?!?!?!?!?
I CANNOT STOMACH DANIELLE she seems like a liar and mean. Dina was write to say that if the shoe was on the other foot Danielle would have done alot worse. Danielle wishes their were something wrong with Dina but Unfortunatly for Daniell Dina has alot more common sense and that scares Daniell!!! It is not the past that makes you who you are everyone makes mistakes some more than others but how you move on from them!
your comment about linolium floors is so stuck up. Who are you to put down people who have linolium flooring? I grew up with it,... I have it (modern style) in my bathroom,... hey stuckup,.. not everyone can afford marble flooring. At least real women are not trying to find someone to pay their bills for them!
Whoever supports this woman has to be as self-centered, and out of touch with reality just like Danielle is.
My husband and I are hooked on the show....but only because of you. We are definitely fans!!! I love your motto "When I am attacked...I will attack back!!! Girl you are bad!! In a good way "bad"!! I don't know if you will get this or my other post...and if you don't I hope you at least read each post because from what I see EVERYONE ADORES YOU...your blogs are honest and sincere...I was reading some of Dena's Hate Mail (comments)...most of us think that she is conniving, classless, and very, very, jealous of you. I refuse to even go in to comment on her blog!! She is NOTHING!! Although you didn't have a husband on the show NEITHER did she!!! I do not believe she is still with her husband..and if she is poor Tommy!! Good Luck and I look forward to seeing you for Season!! Bravo producers...if you lose Danielle you will lose your ratings!!! Pulllleezzzee believe me!!!
You stood up for yourself and in doing so, you did the right thing. Who cares about the damn book? Most of what's contained inside of it is 20 years old. We've all done things we regret. Though I respect Dina and Caroline, I do feel they ganged up on you and, having been victims of nasty rumors themselves with respect to the alleged mob-associations connections, they should have known better than to engage in the same type of smear campaign against you that they endured at the hands of the media and idle gossipers. Thanks also for standing up for your friend and the gay community. Joe's comment was offensive, though I don't believe him to be homophobic. Hold your head up high, Danielle, and don't allow anyone to bully you or make you feel bad about yourself. We've all screwed up; nobody's perfect. xoxo LeoFromEdgewater
I have to start by saying that you being honest with your children and telling them the truth about things is a best thing. I believe in being real with your children. People should be honest with their children and not treat them like they are stupid and don't see how the world really is. I have a daughter and I believe that it is better for her to hear it from me than some asshole out in the street who doesn't know shit about me. And I like that way you handled to situation with the book, what better time to bring it out I don't care what anyone says that was BOLD! I Loved It! Hahaha the look on everyones face. Stay sweet Danielle and just live your life for you and your girls don't live it for any man because men come and go. I'm a single mom I know. And don't live it for people either. I hope you learned a valuable lesson hun, because with friends like that its better to have enemies. Atleast you know where you stand with them. And try to love yourself some more too.
Can't wait to seem NJ Reunion part 2 tonight! Hopefully Danielle will get a chance to speak her mind, that is, if Caroline will shut up and stop covering up for her clan! Kudos to Jacqueline (and Chris) for doing what was right and standing up for Danielle. One piece for Danielle though... never regard your kids as you friends or girlfriends... they're your CHILDREN... be a Mom and don't take them into your every confidence as though they were adults! And Theresa... you're really cute, but, as Danielle said, "try to keep up. pul-eeze" !! Love the show!
Danielle, Sweetie, you just have to leave the passive-aggressive types(Caroline) to heaven and get on with your life! They'll discount everyone else's feelings and thoughts, never apologize, and gen. make you miserable, to bolster their fragile egos.
You fit the diagnoses of: 1.antisocial personality disorder, 2.borderline personality disorder. Their are reasons for all disorders, generally a very disturbed, chaotic childhood. You need to learn how to have genuine loving relationships based on honor, truth, and courage to face your problems. Sad thing is, most folks with these types of personality are unable to live their life honestly without lying and manipulating. I would not want to have to live that kind of life. Hope you can find help, and your children can be okay to live beyond your limitations.
Danielle, you looked worn out last night- Please get rid of the Italian "Mean Girls". If we all had books written about some of the things that we did 25 years ago, there would be no trees left on this earth. That gang reminds me of the judges at The Salem Witch Trials. I wonder what will happen if someone comes up with a story about Tiny? They sure shouldn't throw stones at anyone. Dina is very insincere and insecure and Caroline protects her way too much. Perhaps there are problems there that no one wants to talk about! Your girls are adorable and seem very grounded. Clean up your act, stay away from those Eye-talians girls (Theresa is a big joke, by the way) and move one. Find a man who loves you and believe me, you don't need a homely 26 year old Goomba in training. You should look for a nice man and forget about the extravagent lifestyle. Jacqueline, in the end will side with the family, so a few new friends will help you in the end.
Danielle...your the Bomb!! Anyone who saw the show...saw who the liers were and they admitted that, on national television and said just so you love your family...you can lie all you want just to protect them! BS!!
Caroline is a ICE QUEEN Bully ...and I don't have any respect for her or her homely sister Dina...she contradicts everything!!!She should re-watch the shows...and just see how classless she was...and that Teresa, she not even worth wasting my breath on!
Your Beautiful, Classy and there is no show without you...I hope you get your own show...the other ones I wish would just go away...i only watched it because you were on...Have a Good one Sweetie!!
Danielle, I too know what it means to not be "part of the crowd." Hold your head up and walk proudly. Who among us can cast the first stone? Caroline, Dina, and Theresa will have to answer to a higher power. Pray that God has mercy on them. You are a fantastic mother. Best of luck to you.
Danielle, You should watch the reunion episode. You know those little old ladies who have never smiled a day in their lives, and their lips are turned down at the sides? That is going to be you. Look at your face the entire time. You need to take a good look at your life. You have two beautiful daughters who, after seeing how you acted outside the supper episode with a cigarette hangin out of your mouth and the smoke blowing right at your girls, are learning the wrong way to handle conflicts. Good luck to you in your quest to find a rich man to take care of you.
Danielle, I seen the Reunion and sweetie,Out of all the housewives I have the most respect for you. No one else, not even Jackeline seems to care anymore for you like she sais she did. I'm sorry but they had no right when it came to "that" book to put it out there and they had no balls confronting you but yet they liked talking behind your back. They just had no right doing so. Jackeline seems as if her sister-in-laws manage her life which is sooooo sad to see. C'mom- she should speak up for herself. You raise your daughters good and I know for a fact that the only perso who can judge you is God. They should of confronted you and asked about "the Book" before talking shit. Dina on the other hand also needs her BIG SIS to help her. From watching the show Jackeline really seemed to a friend, everyone else were not. Liek they say, what goes around comes back around baby. You stay focused on your girls.
I began to watch this show as a curiosity and have learned that just because people talk over you doesn't make them right. They seem to survive en masse rather than communicating in a dyadic. They lose credibility to me thinking that if they run their mouths and give you no room to speak that they have won. The large redheaded woman especially seems to 'protesteth too much'. The table tipping (cow tipping in rural areas) embarrassment made me concerned for the big haired woman's children and for their safety. This is not a mentally healthy person. i have not read 'the book' but I can tell you this. If someone wrote a book about me from 24 years ago I would probably not like everything that was either falsely reported or, if they did get some facts right I would not like that either. The lying redhead and her sister (proved to be a liar by the woman who suffered from miscarriages) at the dinner table makes then pathetic. Perhaps on Thursday you can change the pitch and volume of your voice to sound more nasal,screechy, uneducated and narcissistic and then you may get a word in edgewise. Stay strong and stay away from those others unless this can be a stepping stone to something good. Peace to you and yours.
I have to say this because I feel as though you are letting yourself off the hook. For someone who claims to love Jacqueline as much as you do, not only have you continuously thrown her under the bus, you have constantly put her in awkward positions. I believe it was you who said that if she was going to be her friend she'd have to deal with all the issues that you had with her family after she had told you that she could not handle those comments. I don't know what is or is not left with editing, but you my dear are not shown in the positive light you see yourself in and I think you are a bit delusional. I hope the best for you and do not judge one's past, but the actions of the present.
Danielle, If you leave I am done with the NJ housewives. I have never blogged before but I have to tell you. In the beginning I wasn't thrilled with you. After watching each episode, I have more respect for you then anyone on any of the housewives shows. You have two beautiful daughters, intelligent, kind and loyal to their mother. Great job! Caroline's daughter from what I remember graduated from High School two yrs ago and has done nothing. But then again, a high school graduate who doesn't understand the words "democracy and dictatorship" really doesn't have much to offer. Her oldest son is in Law school, fine. The youngest has a dream of owning a topless/car wash. Fine aspiration! Dina, has a daughter so lost in unreality that she thinks the woman her mother hired should wear a uniform and call her maam. Then we have Theresa, she wanted her daughters removed from the table when your book came out (no matter that your daughters had to hear about it from the gossip these mean women spread all over town) but thought nothing of discussing the fact that their father wanted to satisfy his sexual desire in the car on the way home from her "boobie" surgery at that same table with them sitting there. And never forget there was her casual double entendre about "swallowing" that Dina and Caroline found soooo hysterical all said in front of her precious daughters. As for Jacqueline, I was so for her at the dinner,she was brave and honest and true. The first part of the reunion had me confused. I do remember you asking her about 'clearing the air" then when you mentioned it at the reunion and Caroline asked her, she then indicated no and the Grande Duchess of Nothing, stated "I prefer to believe Jacqueline" or something like that as if that was all that mattered. Please spare me!
Love Love Love you! Do not let people bring you down, because they don't like you. I felt your pain yesterday and I wanted to cry. It is truly difficult for me to watch these women cannot feel your pain. My heart almost fell down the floor and I said to myself these women don't care. Danielle I care and know that you have many supporter out ther and I am one of them. I would like to meet you in person and be your friend. Inspite of your past, you appeared to be a good person. I hope the best for you and your family. Don't let these women bring you down as I stated and stay true to yourself. Love yourself.
