The showdown we have all been waiting for commenced during the taping of The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion as Danielle “StaubGoblin” Staub and Teresa Guidice had a physical altercation that required producers to break them up. Luckily, Kim “Kim G” Granatell, Danny the Goon, and none of Danielle’s Mob Squad were there to break it up.
People Online has released photos from the taping, which has had the blogosphere and RHONJ fans itching to see the finished product by it’s August 30th air date. One photo shows Caroline Manzo, the show’s official matriarch, and Bravo’s Andy Cohen holding Teresa back from attacking Danielle, while another photo depicts a shouting match between the dueling divas as a hapless Cohen watches in bewildered concern.
“This might be the best reunion we have ever done,” Cohen told People Online and went on to say that we wouldn’t believe how it began OR ended, which is the same thing Teresa tweeted a couple of weeks ago. Hmmm, no wonder Andy Cohen is chilling overseas some where. He most definitely needed it and earned it in my book…
Rumors had been swirling around the net all week about the happenings behind the top secret taping of a season that was just a drama laden as the last. Danielle’s antics sent one Housewife, Dina Manzo (sister to Caroline and sister-in-law to Jacqueline), running for peaceful, greener pastures and had left a taste in the remaining Housewives mouth. Mid-season brought the rematch between Teresa and Danielle that has repercussions that will lead into the reunion. It’s safe to say that all the Housewives are fed up and showed up at the taping ready to get more than a few things off their chest.
Now the real questions of the moment are: 1. Was what transpired at the reunion a cloister bell to the show’s producers and Bravo that the Danielle drama was too dark for their usually light-hearted franchise; forcing them to not ask Danielle back for a third season?
