The Truth Behind the Hole in Danielle Staub's Tongue

A lot of unbelievable stuff has happened over the years on The Real Housewives — and that includes all sorts of medical emergencies. But no one could have ever anticipated what happened to Danielle Staub on The Real Housewives of New Jersey when the ladies headed off to the Bahamas for her ill-fated wedding to Marty Caffrey. As you might recall, the Garden State pal suffered an injury that left her tongue pretty badly injured after she chomped down on a cantaloupe seed. And there was only one person with the skills to help her through it: Margaret Josephs' husband, Joe Benigno.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

"I'm like 'what the f---?' I'm a hunter and I don't care about blood. I look at it and I take a cloth and I put pressure on it," he recalled in the The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 After Show, clip above.
