Danielle Staub is engaged to Joe Masalta, who is reportedly a Navy SEAL Special Warfare and Intelligence expert. According to Us Weekly, the woman who made Teresa Giudice flip a table recently changed her Facebook status from "single" to "engaged" and gave the following statement confirming that she is, indeed, planning to tie the knot:

I am overwhelmed and incredibly grateful for the outpouring of well wishes and support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Joseph has helped me recognize the important things in life. As I embark on this new journey in the spirit of love and forgiveness, I'd like to apologize for mistakes I've made in the past.

In addition to giving a statement, the mother of two has also been retweeting messages of congratulations from fans.
