Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was by far the most drama-filled, crazy, OMG cops were called, out of hand one yet! There has been plenty of discussion over who is to blame-Teresa Giudice, Jaqueline Laurita’s daughter Ashley, Danielle Staub-but does it matter? These women have all behaved horribly throughout the season and each of their past actions have led to this moment. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be finger pointing going on.
“Teresa’s not an actress and neither am I. That was as real as you’re going to see Teresa,” Danielle tells Famecrawler. “Now people are starting to see the real Teresa. What did I say? Don’t call me honey? And I deserve to get chased. And I am insane?”
Um…no? I think.
“I tried walking away” Danielle continues. “She’s saying , ‘What are you going to do? You ‘re gonna run away?’ And what does she do? She chases me so I do have to run. But it’s not just her. She’s got Jacqueline, she’s got Ashley. Who does that to people? What did I do? I went to the bathroom and she planted herself there. I’ll just say this. Their darkness is coming and I’m getting out of it’s way. That’s all I have to say about it.”
So what are her thoughts on Ashley who is old enough to be involved in this sort of drama but still much younger than the women she is interacting with on the show? Danielle is (surprise!) understanding, but still feels Ashley should be accountable for her actions.
“I was there once and I really want her to understand that she’s at a cross roads right now. I hope that she knows. I didn’t have that kind of parenting. I didn’t have parents or family around me. I want her to see that she’s been given a really great chance and opportunity to possibly help others if she were to become a little more aware. Attacking another person is not pretty and if people think I am just picking on her because she’s 19 when she’s attacking me…think about that really. What are people saying when they say that she’s only 19? She’s attacking another person. It’s such craziness.”
Yes, yes it is craziness.
