Danielle Staub made her Real Housewives of New Jersey comeback Wednesday, after Bravo felon, Teresa Giudice lobbied for her return. But will her past deeds overshadow her reality future? A flashback lover is speaking out — and this time, Danielle is the one being put on blast.
Danielle, 55, was busted back in January 2016, after audio was leaked of the former Bravoleb unleashing a racist rant — the disturbing diatribe aimed at her then boyfriend, Joe Masalta. Press play to listen below.
“Hey stupid moron…where’s the f***ing n****r pot?” Danielle is heard yelling, using a slang expression for weak strength marijuana.
Masalta recorded the eruption — the audio captured at Danielle’s apartment in Weehawken New Jersey, in September 2015.
“Awesome, you’ve got the n***er connection,” Danielle sniped. “You’re so f***ing powerful, you’ve got the n***er connection!”
The “prostitution whore” is heard in a second expletive filled explosion — threatening to sick her “f***ing cartel” on Masalta.
“You wanna call me psycho one more f***ing time, you stupid f***ing Mexican? Go ahead, see what that gets you!” Danielle warned. “Bring it. Bring it, Navy SEAL! See where it gets you with my f***ing cartel!”
Danielle vehemently denied that she was behind the foul-mouthed tirades.
Joe Masalta is now speaking out exclusively to AllAboutTheTea.com — and confirms that the disturbing audio on the recording is authentic.
“100% that is Danielle on the tapes” Masalta confirmed. “She’s not going to admit it’s her because she’s a liar..a deceiver..and a manipulator.”
“We would argue non-stop, and she would become and irate and violent,” Masalta added. “I started recording her outbursts just to protect myself.”
The Navy Seal turned realtor revealed that the police were called on occasion, during the couple’s brief but stormy relationship.
Masalta met Danielle on Tinder in June 2015, and began dating in August. Masalta said that the couple’s relationship lasted about 3 months. Masalta also clarified that due to New Jersey’s “one party consent law” — the recordings are perfectly legal. New Jersey makes it a crime to intercept or record an in-person or telephone conversation unless one party to the conversation consents.
Danielle is set to make her dream RHONJ comeback — but will the real Danielle show up? Stay tuned.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Wednesday nights at 9:00 p.m. ET, on Bravo.
