Caroline Manzo: Danielle Staub is a Liar, Has No Morals

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of New Jersey concluded its first season last week with an epic fight in which Danielle Staub was labeled a "prostitution whore," among other things, while nearly having a table flipped onto her by an enraged Teresa Giudice.

The classy ladies will reunite Tuesday night on Bravo for a post-mortem. In anticipation of the drama to come, Caroline Manzo and Danielle Staub spoke out separately to discuss their feud. All the N.J. wives seem to feud with Danielle.

Where They Stand

Caroline Manzo: She’s invisible to me. I never had a relationship with her and I will never have a relationship with her. She’s a pathological liar. She is manipulative. She is an opportunist. She has no conscience. She has no morals.

Danielle Staub: If you’re going to call me a pathological liar, challenge me. I’m a human being, and on the inside my heart aches just like theirs. Just because there’s so many of them that doesn’t mean that their pain is more important than mine.

Who Is Lying?

Danielle Staub: I have a big problem with Caroline. I think that she’s a big bully. She’s lying. And I don’t understand her motives. Protecting your sister is one thing, but what exactly are you protecting her from?

Caroline Manzo: A lot of people are upset with me for “lying for my sister.” I didn’t lie for my sister. That’s not who I am. And there’s no truth to that at all. If Dina showed that book, I would have let her fight her own battle. So, Danielle, sorry to disappoint you.

Bringing Up "The Book"

Caroline Manzo: At [my son] Albie’s graduation party we found out this book exists and immediately we went to the computer in the office and we Googled it. We read an excerpt from the contents and we were blown away. The next day, I went to the library and I got the book. Dina and Jacqueline knew I was going, and we got back to my house and read it together and had tremendous concerns.

Danielle Staub: They would not give me the chance to talk about it, and I thought [bringing the book to dinner] was the only way to get them to pay attention. They were running around even with that book laying there. If I hadn’t put it there, it never would have been addressed. It was the strongest way to say, “I have you all in one room and like it or not, the cameras are going to see that.”

Is Danielle Staub Dangerous?

Danielle Staub: Really? Was it my father-in-law that was killed and shoved into a trunk? I’m dangerous? I knew about this through the whole show. I didn’t bring it up once. I’m classy. [But] let’s talk about what’s really dangerous here. I’d like to hear about the two siblings that they haven’t talked to in a decade - why they made their wives so uncomfortable that their own brothers won’t even speak to them. But I’m the one who caused trouble in that family? Don’t point the finger at me, ’cause I’m not sitting back anymore.

Caroline Manzo: People say, “Well, why didn’t you go to her?” Because that reputation preceded her. The woman we knew was incapable of telling the truth. After screaming and arguing for days and days, we made a decision not to tell Danielle that we know [the book] exists. If we play dumb, it can’t come back to haunt us. And that’s the decision we made as a family.

What About the Kids?

Caroline Manzo: The true Danielle is in those very last moments of that footage [from the final episode]. That is the true unfiltered Danielle, with that cigarette. And who is her audience? Her children. Making pizza and climbing a rock wall don’t make you a great parent. Her children are well-behaved, well-mannered and they excel in school. But if you look at her children, they have a haunted look in their eyes. These children are paying the price for her irresponsibility.

Danielle Staub: My children were present [for the confrontation] for a very good reason. I not once used an obscenity. I not once started screaming at anybody. I not once tossed a table, or flipped out and banged my hands, or started pacing around. I was just sitting firm, waiting for my right of passage, so to speak. Did I put a burden on [my children]? Did I bring the book out? Were [the Manzo sisters] thinking of my kids? Was it me that put my kids in this position?

NOTE: No word on the "position" Danielle may or may not be in during the sex tape Steve Zalewski is thinking about selling at some point.


Caroline has such hatred and jealousy after this weekes episode of the housewives of New Jersey you can tell that. She took no consideration into why an event was being held, just getting revenge against an enemy of her family. How sad I feel for her kids who she is disgracing and her husband who deserves better than a bitch and vindictive person she is. She does not have a conscience. She is cold hearted, more so than Danielle. She needs to take a good look at herself or her family needs to take a good look at a mean vindictive person or a Godmother.


The Manzo sisters were raped by their gangster father. That's common knowledge back in the day. Their behavior makes so much sense.


why is everyone upset with caroline? danielle should have never put that book on the table. she was an invited guest to a dinner party with familt members. if you notice danielle talkes about everyone behind their back. i think caroline is honest and tells you the way she feels,TO YOUR FACE. I THINK THERESA IS funny and was pushed to her limit,she invited danielle to her dinner party and danielle made it her DINNER DISASTER. YOU GO THERESA!!!!AS FOR JACQUELINE AND DINA, I THINK THEY AR SWEET AND KIND.


Caroline is the most ugliest looking pig ever. Get off the show already. Anyone who's in the mob is a coward.


Caoline needs to be kicked off the show. SERIOUSLY ! There is nothing good going on about her in any way. The way she talks, and the certain air about her, makes me sick. She acts as if she's untouchable, and that she's the best. She is the sickest looking person ever ! Stop acting like you're the best person ever, and that you just know everything. She talks and acts like she's in the mob. If anyone has ever heard of her father in law's story, (the original owner of the Brownstone), you'd know that they're all definately in the mob. These women, especially Caroline, should not be on the show. They don't deserve it. Caroline should come back down to earth. Money doesn't make you supreme to the rest of the world. Your actions do, and your actions are garbage. Grow Up !


I'd love to see Danielle hit Caroline upside her fat pig face with a baseball bat and kill her. That'd be awesome.Caroline really is a totally fatbloated sack of crazy, and a rottenbully.


I don't really blame Danielle for messing with Dina's ugly kid. Dina and Caroline messed with hers by digging up that book.. imagine having to deal with this crap at that age. Its sad these women are mothers. What bitches.


Caroline has got issues talking about Morals and her and her sister who cant express or defend herself are married to brothers Yak! Look at yourself in the mirror before you judge Danielle.Tired of Caroline pretending to care she is a control freak and a bully.


the manzos are hypocrites!! they are all mob related & they want to talk S(*&%T about danielle? i'm sure the IRS will be looking into their activities now that the show has aired. the former NYPD chief is or will be facing charges of perjury for his mob ties. i can't stand broads like the manzos. they think their shit doesnt stink!! bty, dina's husband has a girlfriend, that's the real reason why he hasn't been on the show once. without their husbands these women would be living sparsely.


I loved watching this series, it was so gripping! I'm from the UK (Liverpool) and just couldn't get enough, it made for fantastic reality tv. I wasn't too keen on Caroline, Dina and Danielle as I think they had ulterior motives. I warmed to Jacqueline somewhat and found Teresa's wacky character hilarious. Regardless of where you've came from, if people do not want to be your friend, you cannot force them. I think Danielle's psycho gatecrashing of the others' get-togethers was asking for trouble. The way she (Danielle) behaved encouraged hostility from Dina & Caroline. Anyway, I'm watching it on repeat now, I love it that much and I am really that lame. Thanks, bye!
