'Real Housewives Of NJ' Season Finale Recap — Don't Get Rid Of Danielle Staub Bravo, She's The Only Reason To Watch The Show!

Tue, August 24, 2010 11:37am EDT by 8 Comments

Danielle may divide many viewers, but as the season finale showed, she is all the other housewives ever talk about and definitely brings the drama! Would you even watch the show without her?

Love her or hate her, Danielle Staub has for the past two seasons remained the only real reason to watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey, as was clearly evident during the season finale on Aug. 23. In the episode’s ultimate showdown, Danielle faced off with Caroline Manzo and, while no tables were thrown, Danielle proved she could hold her own against the firey matriarch while also being a complete hypocrite!

Little to nothing came out of the fight, but Caroline struck first with a terrific observation — while Ashley was wrong in attacking Danielle, Danielle has frequently gone after the children of the other housewives, something they have never done to her daughters. In addition to the Ashley drama, it was also reported Danielle had called child services on former cast mate and Caroline’s sister Dina Manzo to have her daughter removed. That is pretty low!

The other MAJOR gaffe Danielle made was when she said she would not take responsibility for her friends shouting a homophobic slur at Caroline’s son Christopher. Not only is this an amazing statement from the woman who claims to be so in tune with gay people, it also contradicts the entire last season where she attacked everyone for Teresa Giudice‘s husband Joe making a similar comment. And his slur, while still unacceptable, wasn’t even directed at one of the cast member’s children!

The truth is, Danielle makes great television and while she is a constant source of annoyance to all the other women, she clearly makes the show worth watching!

On another note, Danielle and Caroline both looked gorgeous in their final scene. No matter whose side you are on, both women are looking better than ever!

So HollywoodLifers, what did you think of last night’s episode and would you watch the show if Danielle was gone?

This show would be nothing without Danielle. All the staged drama is around her.
Teresa the manzo wanna be is full of herself. She is not attractive and neither are her kids or her husband.
Jacqueline is a doormat and doesn’t think for herself. Her daughter is a mess.
Caroline is having a hard time dealing with the empty nest…supposedly. Doesn’t look like any of them moved out yet.

How can you ever support the (dumbass) idea that Danielle is the only reason to watch this show??? I totally dissagree, who wrote this anyway?
Danielle is nasty to even look at, not to mention a disgusting lunatic.
The other woman are Fun & halarious. Dump Danielle & bring back Dina!

Ok, I have never watched any of these shows but I do read celeb news and all. I see this person all the time and am I just the only one who thinks she is just scary to look at? What is going on with her face??? Has she had plastic surgery or is it just age? Man, she kinda freaks me out. I dont think I COULD watch the show with her on it. Yikes!

one of the characters on the show said she looks like the grinch… mean, but true. to be honest, despite the clearly altered aspects of her face and body, i think she actually doesn’t look bad. her body looks pretty good for a woman nearing 50, and her skin also looks pretty good. yes, botox, yes, fillers, yes, implants… but, it ain’t fun aging so i won’t fault her for those things. (no, i’m not her fan. she needs serious psychiatric help, but maybe even is too far gone for that. i don’t know if sociopaths can be reformed.)

im sick of this blog promoting danielle. shes not a housewife now, so there no reason to write about her anymore. we know you have a deal with her for content, but no one cares about her.

i stopped watching ALL real housewives series because of danielle. this may seem like an exaggeration, but it was her exaggerated nonsense that made me finally see the light that i should not be wasting my time getting worked up over such trash. as dina said, you cannot reason with this woman. she is psychopathic, and as the other posters have pointed out, she brings an actual dangerous element to the table- and not in a good way. she is the woman who will snap and drive someone off the road or run them over, whatever. she is truly crazy. it made me feel disgusted at bravo to take advantage of somebody so clearly twisted and in need of psychiatric help- so disgusted that i just tuned out of all of their shows. in fact, i finally found my rho orange county today and cleared that series recording, the last one that i just couldn’t find until now— d o n e with all of them now. i didn’t know the thing about danielle reporting dina to child protective services- but that sounds about right for danielle. none of your links to the source of this info actually works, but i believe it. danielle, whose kids should be taken away from her if there was a better place for them, tries to have someone else’s kids removed from a home. i mean, c’mon… she’s sick and bravo is taking advantage of that, and in a way, encouraging her craziness. it disgusts me. i actually don’t feel like watching bravo at all anymore, and maybe i won’t.

Danielle really needs to go. Someone is going to end up getting hurt with this psycho on the loose. She always has people with guns, she is the professional victim and never sees where she is in the wrong…a recipe for disaster. Get rid of her, bring back Dina and add Kim G.

Danielle needs to go. The reason. She brings bodyguards, with guns. There is the difference. It’s ok to have a bodyguard. To have them w/guns? No Way. In no way has any one shown they would harm her to the extent of needing someone w/a gun. A slap is one thing. Slap back. A gun? Of course this is all Danielle knows. She has delt with low lifes for so long she knows no other way to act. Go Away Danielle.
