Citing her fears of Danielle Staub, Dina Manzo announced her departure from The Real Housewives of New Jersey on tonight's episode.
"The girl is freakin' obsessed with me, I swear," Manzo said. "I don't know if she wants to be me or skin me and wear me like last season's Versace. Danielle is dangerous."
"I'm not really sure what she's even capable of doing, but I'm not going to be here to find out."
So, so long Dina. While your cats kinda creeped us out, you were likable ... and obviously, intelligent given tonight's news.
During the rest of the show, Danielle was trying to reawaken her sexual side ... though it's unclear by what standards it was asleep. She does make a peculiar statement about her friend's huge dog and how she wants a chihuahua, but if she doesn't start dating soon she's going to have to go with the bigger dog.
When Steve -- yes, Steve who Staub accused of secretly recording the sex tapes -- showed up at Jacqueline's house for poker night, Jacqueline felt the need to chastise him for leaking the tapes. Steve said he wasn't even in the tapes, that Danielle just filmed herself "doing these crazy things to herself" and sent them to him.
Jacqueline has since accused Danielle of leaking the sex tape herself.
But back to poor repressed Danielle and her sexual reawakening ...
"It' s going to take a lot for me to feel like it's OK that I'm single and want to be sexy, " Danielle declares while strutting around in lingerie for her new found gang of women friends, who actually look like real housewives.
Then it's off to the strip club where she takes to the pole like the professional she is was. She says stripping is empowering and that she's "all about empowering women".
Then after dismounting the pole says, "This is what worked for the father of my children. You saw my house, right?"
Her bodyguard/ex-con, Danny, looks like he's going to hyperventilate with desire as he watches and throws money at her. "Even Danny has joined the crusade to get me back into the dating scene," she says.
Of course, that's why he's there.
But whatever it is, the pole dancing works, and just like that it became very clear to Danielle that "I still do have my sexy."
Well then, watch out guys. Danielle is on the prowl, and as she told her new besties earlier, she is "not calm in the boudoir".
