There was no shortage of memorable moments served up by Danielle Staub in her first two seasons of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Who doesn't have that table flip, that hair pull, or that reunion moment basically committed to memory by now?
But one of Danielle's most iconic moments as a Housewife didn't even happen on RHONJ. We're still talking about her performance of her debut single "Real Close" with Lori Michaels on Watch What Happens Live in 2010, and apparently Andy Cohen is, too. "You famously recorded the tortured lesbian love song 'Real Close,' which is my favorite Watch What Happens Live performance of all time," Andy gushed on Wednesday night's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, which featured Danielle and Gotham's Robin Lord Taylor as guests.
Lucky for us, Danielle resumed her singing career for one night only when she reprised her performance of "Real Close" on WWHL Wednesday night. Danielle sang along with a throwback clip of her original WWHL performance, and she even got a new duet partner to help her bring the ballad home. Not even in our wildest dreams could we have imagined something so divine to take place in the Clubhouse. Christmas has indeed come early, friends!
Press play on the above clip to watch the full performance, and prepare to get CHILLS.
Danielle would go on to release a second single, "Cry," in 2010. Sadly, she has not released any new music since then.
Danielle's previous WWHL performance with Lori is also famous for fueling speculation that she had been taking a dip in the lady pond at the time. She discussed her sexuality on Wednesday night's WWHL, which you can view, below.
