Joe Bradley and Danielle Olivera's Relationship Details

How Joe and Danielle Met

Though the Bravolebs previously revealed that they initially connected at BravoCon 2023, Joe shared new details on WWHL about the chance encounter that led to where they are today.

"In between panels, I remember walking down the service hallway [and] I saw her in the hall," Joe recalled of Danielle. "Every time I looked at her we, like, locked eyes. When you know, you know — you lock the eyes, and you're like, this is happening. In my eyes, I was like, you know what? I think I got a chance."

What Joe Is Most Attracted to About Danielle

Andy Cohen asked Joe a series of questions about Danielle, including what he finds most attractive about both her personality and her looks. Regarding the former, Joe said, "I just love that she's super fiery. And also, she's miles ahead of me as a human; She just developed an app and she's starting her own company, which I think is amazing."

Physically, Joe shared it was Danielle's skin that "caught" his eye. "It glows," as he put it. 

Joe Bradley and Danielle Olivera's Relationship Status

Joe answered all of Andy's initial questions without hesitation, but a certain one left him temporarily stumped: "Have you two defined the relationship yet?" 

Before Joe could answer, Danielle did instead — well, sort of. "We're not seeing anyone else," she said.

Joe, for his part, had previously told Us Weekly the same thing. However, that's not all he said about their status during the interview. In fact, he expressed his belief that he and Danielle had "moved a little two fast." 

“That’s what I think we’re figuring out right now," Joe continued. "So we’re still a little confused, but the one thing we’re not confused about is that we have feelings for each other."

“I just want to make sure we’re in the right place before I’m officially, like, ‘I’m your boyfriend, you’re my girlfriend.’ I don’t want to get hurt," he added. “But more importantly, I don’t want to see her get hurt, and I just want to be in the best place possible before we make a hard launch."

Danielle Olivera Reacts to Joe Bradley's DMs From Other Women

Joe and Danielle may not be seeing anyone else, but that doesn't mean he's not on the receiving end of flirty DMs from other people. Andy inquired about the messages he gets, and Joe admitted, "Recently it's been ladies and men in my DMs."

Does he ever respond? "Sometimes instead of ignoring, sometimes I feel bad, and I just give, like, a little heart," Joe explained.

Andy asked Danielle how she feels about that, and she simply said, "I'm okay with that."
