Despite Danielle's HORRIBLE ("Whore"able) reputation, I gave her the benefit of the doubt even with all of the red flags surrounding her. I tried my best to believe in Danielle. I tried my best to help her and get her to fit in. I tried my best to change the opinion of others about her so that she could have a second chance in society. I fell for her victim and poor single mother act in the beginning. I felt sorry for her. I fought for her. I can honestly say did. For the few people that keep thinking that my dislike for Danielle is all about my family brainwashing me or just about her past … OPEN YOUR EYES AND EARS PEOPLE! Do you SERIOUSLY think her behavior has changed much and that she is making much better choices NOW than she did 25 years ago? Seriously? Get real! There is always more to the story than what you are seeing so keep that in mind as well. I feel like I am very justified in my feelings toward Danielle. From what I know, backed up with facts, the things I learned and witnessed from my own experiences with Danielle, in the moments that I have witnessed her treat and talk TO others and ABOUT others, her MANY lies she has told about me, my family, others and even about HERSELF, the conflicts I've seen and CONTINUE to see her trying to cause between others, her narcissism, her conning, calculating ways, her phony persona, and that she HASN'T changed much of her life for the better in 25 years, I believe, WITHOUT A DOUBT, that she is NOT a good OR a well person. That is my opinion and I am entitled to it. For ANYbody to NOT understand where I am coming from at THIS POINT...I'm sorry but I can't explain it any better than I already have and you will NEVER convince me any different. I know what I know about her and TRUST me, it's a LOT more than YOU know. I have experienced Danielle first hand. I AM JUSTIFIED and yes, bitter too. I'm dealing with it.
Danielle made a statement in her last blog that said, "It is the Brownstone's job to SERVE people." Guess what Danielle … YOU'VE BEEN SERVED!!!
For those that are interested in helping the family of Emanuela, please go to www.Emanuelasheartforhope.com. Thank you!
I think you have seen the light about this woman and have learned a lot about yourself in the process. Your family has not done anything except try to protect you from your our own kind naieve heart. But I do see a streak of rebelliousness in you, much like Ashley, you dont' like to be told what to do or what to think, and I think that kept you in relation with Danielle longer than you would have if they weren't trying to hip you to the situation and protect you. You don't want to be told, and that is good most of the time. Learn from this one and realize that your family and your husband in particular only want the best for you and to keep you safe. If Danielle had come between you and your husband it would have been her crowning glory. I know you were hurt when Caroline called you the weakest link, but the truth hurts and sometimes it has to be said, and thankfully you listened up. You know she is wise and discerning and she would never hurt you....she said that to make you snap out of it. You are a dear heart just like Dina and sometimes sweet people like you are the target for vipers like Danielle, that is the truth of life. Be safe, be well and be sweet, God bless you Jacqueline.
Preach it Jacqueline! You are SPOT ON ;)
All your points stood out clearly to me as a viewer, so don't underestimate the viewers and whose sides we are on ;)
Jacqueline - I'm so glad that you have been able to see what kind of person Danielle really is. You deserve to have people as wonderful as you in your life. The other ladies are incredible ladies and you should be proud to have them in your life.
I'm just sad that Kim G. is stepping into your shoes as Danielle's next "friend" or victim. I hope she saw this episode and is embarrassed by Danielle's behavior and realizes that she will be judged by her association with Danielle. This episode made her look as low-class as Danielle and her hoodlums. I'm interested to hear her thoughts about that night.
I agree with you Jac! I think that Danielle kills the show and I do not like watching her. She brings ex-cons to event to for a dying baby. She uses her daughter to promote how great she is and uses it in her best interest to be in a cover. I would not spend anymore energy on her because she is so unhealthy as a person. She needs to get a job and mental counseling. How are you going to attend a benefit and not give any money? Also considering that she is an honorary guest.
Practice what you preach woman! Danielle is the show,that's why y'all talk about her all the time...besides,her daughter is doing BIG things,where is yours? LOL!
Jacqueline, I just want you to know that because of your link in your last blog I donated to that beautiful little girls cause. Daniel never even posted a mention or a link till this week. This alone shows her true character. God Bless and please dont get too sucked in.
Jacqueline, I absolutley love you and your family. You have a big heart and tried to help someone who clearly will never change. She was absolutely trying to cause a scene and to use a poor sick baby to do so is completely classless! You and your family are wonderful people and do not ever let a piece of garbage like Danielle bring you down. We all see her for the trash that she really is!
First of all, just want to say love ya Jacqueline! You're always so grounded and try to do the right thing, no matter what. That's what makes a great person!
Secondly, you're absolutely right. When I first started watching the show, I truly felt bad for Danielle. I thought that because of editing, we weren't getting the true sense of how she is.
But after watching last night's episode, I can clearly see what everyone else has been seeing all along. You're right- everything she does is a calculated move. It's as if she's formulated some kind of malicious plan to get back at the Manzos, and quite frankly, to everyone. It was so evidently clear that that monster never had an interest in the sick baby. It was more of a pathetic attempt to show up and stir trouble- but at whose expense??
It shows she is the SAME person she was 25 years ago. I'd definitely keep my distance. That woman is crazy, and it seems the screws are looser. I really think she's working a scheme on the ladies & on Bravo. She's a snake that can't be trusted.
I agree with you 100%! Love the show and all you bring to it. Don't listen to the people about Danielle. You gave her more than a fair chance and she has done nothing but bring grief to your life. Stay positive!
Jaqueline I totally agree with every word you wrote about the Brownstone event. I observed the same in that entire scenario. I always felt a little sorry for Danielle...she seemed like the underdog. However, this season, and especially last night's episode, has shown me otherwise. Wow! I also noticed that poor baby's mother, and her look of sadness. I cannot imagine being in her shoes. Love the show; you girls are the best!
Loved, Loved, Loved your blog... as I was reading it I was thinking the same thing as I watched the show. How do you bring so many univited guests and think there supposed to be accomodated so quickly!!! And my 16 year old son is bigger and badder than Danny!!! lol
I am curious why Caroline invited Danielle to the premiere show held at the Brownstone that Albie hosted with Andy.
Danielle is proof that you can't buy class. Shame on her!!!!
May God bless that sick little girl and her family.
I have to agree with Monday Night viewer. Why give a blow by blow recap! Since you were not there you saw what we saw? We all know the cameras can make things seem over the top as you houswives have said before . I'm not execusing Danielle for her behavior and what I saw was totally wrong. However, Jacqueline you sound so bitter and you really should concentrate on your daughter who is going down the wrong path. She has know idea what she wants to do in life. Get a grip on her before you comment on someone else behavior.
Right on girl! Wish you would have figured this out sooner, but it is about time that you see she s nuts... To bad we all seen it last season!
I agree with everything you wrote in your blog! I watched last night's episode and read Danielle's blog and realized she is completely delusional! I am completely on your side (and the rest of the "sistas!") Don't let her bring you down
This is the first time I have commented but I watch RHWoNJ all the time. and Danielle is just a fool. She is evil and karma comes back ten fold. On to something better.. LOVED the scene with you a D's mom! too funny! and Gia is adorable. I loved seeing her birthday and how cute she is!
Perfect blog. You brought up many points about Danielle that I had forgotten about. I too had felt bad for her before, but no longer. She dug her own hole.
I agree 100% and find it sad that Bravo ONLY has her on for the drama she brings. You guys really shouldn't be a part of a show that only wants people like her on it for ratings...look what it brings to your lives....think about it. Bravo probably won't put this up but I'm tellin' ya like it is.
Jacquline, I think u r a very beautiful woman. I love the way that u don't let your child run over u,and you do it with dignity and respect.U really seem 2 b a very humble person.Down 2 earth.As 4 Danielle, there is nothing wrong n giving a person a chance. U stood up 4 her when no one else would. Now u know what type of friend she is. She is no ones friend.She is the type of friend u don't need. Stay true 2 yourself sweetie.
Jacqueline: Being a former Jersey Girl myself, I find it very painful to watch the likes of Danielle and Jersey Shore morons. People like that ARE the reason others have a crappy opinion of people from New Jersey.
As far as Danielle, I can't add anything to what you've already said. She is CRAZY and I just hope all of you keep your distance and KNOW she will eventually get hers.
There will come a time when NOBODY "has her back"...although at our ages, I'm not sure why anybody should. Isn't it time for her to STAND ON HER OWN?
Oh, well, I hope you see this and I hope you are really enjoying the new baby and all the good things in life.
Best Regards, Laura
Xanadu reject, Danny, is a complete moron if he thought it was a good idea to threaten the Brownstone, staff, and guests while he was on parole. Genius at work, folks- step back! Good thing Danny Einstein had the courtesy to dress up and picked out his best black t-shirt for the event. Danielle's entourage probably couldn't get through the alphabet without stopping to ask for help. I've never seen a Bentley used to deliver trash before. Love you & your family- you seem like wonderful people :)
I agree with your assessment of the situation, Jacqueline. The show would be so much better WITHOUT Danielle.
Jacq~ I too tried to give D a chance, but she has proven both you and I wrong. She is crazy and completely delusional. Thanks for pointing out how hypocritical it was for her to make such an issue over Joe's comments from last season, but it was simply great for her little felon, napoleon buddy to make his comments. She's so transparent, anyone who doesn't see it by this time certainly doesn't deserve your time or concern. God bless little Emanuela and her family.
Have just read your blog and Danielle's - funny that you managed to put a link to the website to donate to the little girl and all Danielle could manage was to say that you could find it on HER links in Twitter, etc. Just sayin'....LOL
I couldn't have said it better myself and I'm not even around that nut.
You're marvelous, Jacqueline and we love you!
Jacqualine, you got it absolutely right! We will all be divided in the end, the righous to the right, the others to the left! We all know where Danielle is going in the end!
You are a very beautiful and respectful woman, you have the most beautiful children and husband, keep it up girl!
You are absolutely entitled to your opinion (it my opinion too) and anyone who thinks "loves" Danielle is obviously as disturbed as she is!
Hi, Jacqueline- I cant see how anyone who has eyes and ears and a brain would not understand how you feel about Danielle. All i can say about her behaviour at that charity event is Wow wow wow (and not in a good way.) Best- Sharon nyc
I'm so glad that almost everyone agrees that Danielle is completely bonkers. I think a lot of us are tired of the same old plot line every week. Channeling Bethenny on RHONY, "Danielle, you need to get a hobby!" Danielle seems to have nothing else to do but shop and plot her revenge... for what?
Perfect blog! There is really no redemption for Danielle anymore after this...what you wrote is exactly what went down. I do not want to see her anymore on this show...bring in some new wives!
Jacqueline I am a huge fan of the show and you are my favorite!
I really love you all with the exception of...ehem- The 'Witch". I will continue reading your entire blog & love the way you handle everything.
Last but not least. Congratulations on the birth of your son. He is a cutie. I'm so happy & refreshing to know you shared your experience of IVF with your audience. Not many women are that courageous to do so, especially when they are in the public eye. It's good to know someone can relate to our pain.
My husband & I are ttc our first and have tried IUI with no sucess as IVF is highly recommended on our case. Unfortunately we can not afford treatment but I get so happy when it does work for another couple. Enjoy every bit of him and your oldest daughter, who is so beautiful as well.
Much happiness & blessings to you all :)
