Bravo isn’t missing Danielle — at all — now that she’s been cut loose from the ‘Housewives’ pack!

Wow! The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast must really dislike their former co-star Danielle Staub. When it was announced in September that Danielle would not be returning to the franchise for its third season, there were suggestions that other stars would not come back if Danielle did. Now, both N.J. housewife Caroline Manzo and Housewives honcho Andy Cohen say that it’s a good thing that she’s gone. 

“Without Danielle, it’ll be great!’ Andy tells exclusively.

“People worry that the show won’t be what it was. I’m glad it’s not what it was,” Caroline agrees. “Now, it’s drama that’s memorable.”

Expect some new people to be joining the cast this season. “There’s a couple of new faces,” Caroline states. “It’s a very different dynamic this year. It’s a lot of fun.”

Jersey is filming right now,” Andy said at the Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2011 New York Fashion Week show. “It’s going really well.”

“It’s the best it ever was,” Caroline finalizes.

Poor Danielle. It sounds like she’s on her own.
