Major mazels are in order for Danielle Staub: the Real Housewives of New Jersey alum is engaged to be married! “There was a time when I gave up on finding true love, but then I decided to open my mind, and open my heart, and that’s when I met Joseph,” she tells People. “To all women that have experienced pain and heartbreak, don’t ever give up on love.”
Her soon-to-be-husband is Joseph Masalta of Philadelphia, Penn., according to his Facebook profile. Joe put a ring on it earlier this summer (August 16), and E! News reports that he couldn’t be happier: “It is me who is extremely fortunate,” he responded to a well-wisher on social media, according to E! “Danielle has become an extremely positive influence in my life. Danielle is an awesome mother and best friend.” Danielle also appreciates the outpouring of support. "It helps me start this new journey in the spirit of peace and happiness," she tells People. Danielle's previous two marriages ended in divorce. Check out a throwback clip of her girls Jillian and Christine, below.
