No Excuses

Danielle apologizes for a harsh remark, and thanks fans for supporting her and her song, "Real Close."

By Danielle Staub


How to Watch

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

On episode 8 when I came home from my surgery, I had a wonderful nurse stay with me. Her name is Josephine Carlton. I had a chance to get to know Jo during the few days she stayed with me, and I can honestly say if God forbid I ever need surgery again and need to be cared for afterwards, she would be the person I would call. Thanks again Josephine, I greatly appreciate your TLC. Her website is

I would like to take a moment to say I am sorry for what I said about Ashley. It is never pretty to get in the mud with that kind of darkness and I shouldn't have done so. I’m not proud of that moment and I can promise I will do my very best to not do that again. I’m not going to make excuses, I’m just going to simply say, my sincere apologies.

Now I would like to talk about all of the positive things going on in my life. I would like to thank everyone for tuning in every week to watch what happens on The Real Housewives of NJ. And moreover, breaking records tuning into Watch What Happens Live on June 21st to listen to me debut my song "Real Close." Your response and support has been overwhelmingly positive and so greatly appreciated. Because of the high demand to digitally release the tortured lullaby version of "Real Close" that was created specifically for WWHL with Andy Cohen, Lori and I will be working hard to have the song released onto iTunes, hopefully – fingers crossed – within the next two weeks. We’re not only going to offer that version, but a couple of remixes that are going to be nice surprises. A personal note of gratitude to Andy and the entire team at WWHL for your help and support in bringing “Real Close” to life  - I’m glad you enjoyed it. As requested, we’ll try to have "more to come."

Christine’s modeling career is going so well. She is booking up on a daily basis all the way through fashion week in September. You can find her book on my website at

I am so proud Jillian Marie is about to release her song “What You're Talking About." She is being released digitally very soon and I’m happy to say she has chosen a great venue for her release party and she is indeed the next Miley Cyrus, only better because she is Jillian Marie. Keep looking on my website for her, To really get to know me, please read my book The Naked Truth, my memoir which you can find on bookshelves everywhere. Thank you to Simon & Schuster for your support. You can find information on my book signings and all information connected to me and my endeavors including my t-shirt line, Danielle’s Mafia and my online store on Please follow me on twitter @daniellestaub.


I would like to thank Christine and Jillian and my entire team, Kristen, Lori, Todd, Joann and Mark for being equals with me on this journey and never wavering, or shaking, and being steadfast by my side. My love for all of you is held so deeply in my heart. I will keep showing my gratitude every day. Thank you for believing in me, and in us. And thank you to all of my friends and fans on Facebook and Twitter for embracing me and my entire family everywhere we go. Every blessing.

Next week, now, and always, love and light,
