The news that Danielle Staub is returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey hit me like a pre-Thanksgiving miracle. It's like god listened to my prayers and answered the least meaningful one in the lot. But, whatever. I'll take it. It's pretty much 100 percent that Danielle's coming back for blood on season six, and while I'm terrified and excited all at the same time, one cast member in particular doesn't seem to care one bit that the "prostitution whore" is reprising her role. Melissa Gorga told In Touch that, nah, she ain't afraid of no big, bad Danielle, and goes on to say, "I'm not going to run from her."
Um, Melissa? I don't wanna be like telling you what to do or anything, but, um, you should run. Run run run run run run run.
Melissa explains, "I don’t think anyone can cause more problems for Teresa and me -- not even Danielle."
Fine, I'll give Melissa that. I agree that her relationship with Teresa is totally dissolved and can't dissolve any more. So yeah, there isn't anything Danielle could do to that relationship, no, but there's plenty she could do to any of your other relationships.
There's no doubt in my mind that Danielle will try and come between Melissa and Joe, Melissa and Jacqui, Melissa and Caroline, Melissa and anyone. Stirring shit up is what Danielle does best, and the sooner Melissa realizes that she's not a scaredy-cat for running away, but rather a smarty-cat, the better.
Also, do you find Melissa's wording interesting here? She says: "I’m not going to run from her. If she wants to film together let’s film together."
Wants to film together? What, Danielle calls the shots? Huh. And yeah, any notion you had that those scenes where two Housewives go shopping together, etc., are organic, think again. The need to film comes first, then the outing is planned; it's not the outing, then the filming.
Anyway, Melissa should look out. Danielle's crazy and capable of anything ... which is exactly why, I assume, she was invited back on the show.
Do you think Melissa should run from Danielle?
