In July, we asked whether Lori Michaels was the girlfriend or the publicity pawn of Danielle Staub. Turns out, the answer lies somewhere in between.
Sources tell Radar Online that the insane former Real Housewife and the openly gay singer were never an official item - but they did get "physical" together (yech!) and they did have a "connection."
"Lori was never going to put herself in a place where she was going to run away with Danielle," says the insider. "It became a complicated relationship."
Interesting. Tell us more, anonymous source!
"Lori doesn't do crazy. It's been a series of things. The truth is they both tried to make the relationship work on many levels... Danielle does her thing and Lori does hers. Lori appreciates the goodness when Danielle was able to give it, and I'm sure she appreciates what Lori has done."
