Danielle Staub was a gem and a half on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I don't care what the haters say, she always made great television. One of the most infamous moments from RHONJ was when Teresa Giudice yelled about how Danielle has "been engaged 19 times" before she made her epic and very memorable table flip in Danielle's direction. Well, looks like Teresa can keep counting, because Danielle Staub is engaged for the 20th time!
This news makes me really happy. I've always had a soft spot for Danielle and she will always be a personal favorite. I hope this engagement works out and that she makes it to the wedding for this one. She sounds very optimistic herself, including in her statement revealing the news to Us Weekly: "I feel like a big weight has been lifted off of my shoulders, and I am finally happy."
I have to wonder what her wedding will be like. Based on her two seasons on the show, there are definitely some things that Danielle and her fiancé Joe Masalta's wedding should have for it to be my dream come true. Here are some of the "That's so Danielle!" elements that just have to be there.
1. Leopard Accents
It would be perfectly New Jersey for Danielle to have some leopard print decorations throughout the ceremony and reception.
2. An Engagement Rings Exhibit
In the first episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle revealed that she had been engaged 19 times. Yep, she said it herself; that wasn't just Teresa's count. Maybe she can have an exhibit of her past engagement rings on display or possibly a silent auction of them to benefit charity.
3. Stripper Poles
It would be such a fun reception if the dance floor had stripper poles in the middle. Danielle can show off some of her signature moves. It would also be hilarious to see some drunk aunts and uncles working the pole.
4. Sharp Cutlery
You know, for the all the food she'll have. I'm just hoping that no haters are in attendance though...
Once again, I am hoping not too much drama makes it way into her celebration, but just in case, I hope that there are security guards around to hold Danielle back in case things do get rowdy.
6. An Open Bar
Danielle has been a single mother for a long time, getting married (after 20 engagements) warrants a drink or two for celebration.
7. A Hair Stylist On Standby
Danielle had a lot of hair-related incidents on RHONJ. Let's hope she has a hair stylist on site for emergencies in case anyone wants to tug on her weave again.
I'm so happy that Danielle is so happy about being engaged again. And I'm sure her wedding will be one to remember, no matter what.
