Danielle Staub On Returning To RHONJ As A ‘Friend Of The Housewives’ For Season 8: “I was A Little Upset. I Was Almost A Little Bit Insulted”

Danielle Staub‘s return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey may have taken seven years, however the original cast member of the Bravo hit reality series returned in a part-time role this season. “No, I didn’t understand initially,” she admitted to The Morning Breath of Bravo’s decision to make her a “friend” of the Housewives.

“I was a little upset. I was almost a little bit insulted. But then I realized as I started to film with the ladies that I was with every group cast gathering,” she said. “So I was in every one of those scenes and I was in private scenes. So I was doing the work and spending the time getting to know everybody.”

“Bravo always knows what they’re doing and so do the producers and I trust them immensely,” she said. “They spent a lot of time on the phone with me and I do give them that, but when I look back I do regret giving them such a hard time — but then I don’t because of what happened to me in seasons one and two.”

“I had to really like understand and wrap my head around why I’m coming back and what was going to happen to me,” she confessed. “Are they using me? What was the intentions behind it [sic]? And if I’m part time, does that mean I’m disposable? But clearly I’m not.”

She also divulged that she didn’t like Margaret Josephs initially “because she got full time status right away.

“I was a little jealous I can’t lie,” she said.

Staub also told the show’s hosts Jackie and Claudia Oshry that she will be at the reunion taping as well, but didn’t say what she would discuss at the taping.
