‘RHONJ’ Newbie Danielle Cabral Promises Teresa Giudice Will Be Victorious Over Melissa Gorga In Season 13
The Real Housewives of New Jersey rookie, Danielle Cabral, is claiming that Teresa Giudice will be vindicated in Season 13, once the drama with her brother, Joe Gorga, and his wife, Melissa Gorga, unfolds.
The 37-year-old dished about the upcoming season in a new episode of Page Six’s Virtual Reali-Tea podcast and explained why she believed that the Bravo veteran will be cleared once the feud plays out for viewers.
“I can’t wait for this season to air because that is the No. 1 question,” the newcomer said, when asked about Teresa’s rumored role in spreading an infidelity rumor about her sister-in-law.
“I connect wait for … that narrative to come out and for you guys to see what really happened,” she continued. “Because everybody’s got it wrong.”
“He saw Melissa in the back seat and she was making out with another guy,” Jennifer, a longtime ally of Teresa’s, said.
“I was like, ‘Dang!’ You don’t want to know certain things because then when you know certain things, you’re involved in certain things and it just puts you in those situations you just wish you were never involved in,” she said.
“And it’s sometimes sucky situations and you’re stuck [between] … a rock and a hard place and you don’t know what to do,” Danielle explained. “Damned if you do, damned if you don’t type of thing.”
The RHONJ newbie shared her frustration over where she landed in the drama after revealing she wasn’t exactly shocked by the rumors.
“I think that’s what my realization was. It wasn’t like, ‘Oh my God,’” she explained. “It was like, ‘Oh s—t, now I’m involved.’”
Fans know that the clan clashed in the days leading up to Teresa, 50, and Luis Ruelas’ August wedding, after some cast members spread the rumor that Melissa, 43, had cheated on her husband with actor, Nick Barrotta. Drama exploded while production filmed the finale episode and the blowout resulted in Joe and Melissa bailing on the ritzy nuptials.
The Gorgas supposedly “laughed off” the allegation and Melissa later addressed the controversy on her podcast.
“Sometimes when things are too toxic and you try over and over and over again and it just keeps coming back around to the same thing, even if it’s family, you have to let it go,” Melissa said on her “On Display” podcast.
Danielle shared that she tried to play peacemaker to bring the two families together.
“I tried to be that peacemaker in so many ways this season,” she said.
The Bravo freshman teased that she ultimately formed bonds with Teresa and Jennifer, which thwarted building friendships with the other women on the cast—Melissa, Margaret Josephs, Jackie Goldschneider and newcomer, Rachel Fuda.
Danielle, who shares two young children with husband, Nate, son, Dominic, and daughter, Valentina, stated that she hopes to at least get along with Rachel, 31, in the days ahead.
“I hope [I can with] Rachel because, you know, what went down went down. It is what it is. But I feel like we have so many similarities and our friendship was so pure in the beginning,” Danielle explained.
She added—“And I hope we get to a better place. I hope we take this out of being, like, Team A and Team B. Can we just be the new girls on the block and be friends with be cool with each other?”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 13 premieres Tuesday, at 9 pm ET, on Bravo.
