Remember how just a few days ago we learned that “prostitution whor-ah!” Danielle Staub of Real Housewives of New Jersey was getting married again only a week after her last divorce was finalized? They were supposed to get married today, but well, surprise! That’s not happening. There are multiple reports coming in that Danielle and her fiancé, Olivier Maier–who is allegedly the Duke of Provence–are not getting married today like they said they would, and her last husband has some ideas on why Danielle is in such a rush. Yeah girl: we all know why $he’$ getting married again.
A bunch of gossip sites are saying that Danielle is postponing, but they’re still getting married just not as soon. A source told E! News:
“Danielle and Oliver are temporarily postponing their wedding but are still very much engaged… Danielle is going to spend a few days with her daughters recognizing this all happened very fast. Her children have always been her number one priority and that will never change.”
And another source (or the same one trying to get a non-gold-digging narrative cooking) told People:
“Danielle is postponing wedding a bit as she wants to spend some time with her daughters, who were taken by surprise… They will likely get married sometime in the next week or so.”
The 56-year-old has two daughters, 25-year-old Christine and 20-year-old Jillian, both with her first husband who she divorced before she was on Real Housewives of New Jersey. So Danielle needed time to explain to her adult children that the rent was due and she needed a new source of income. I’m kidding! …But her ex-husband sure isn’t and he thinks the same thing.
TMZ is saying that Danielle’s most recent ex (as in they were legally married up until, like, last week) Marty Caffrey thinks this speedy engagement has to do with one thing: money. As part of their divorce agreement, Danielle has to buy their $2 million New Jersey home, and I’m gonna go out on a limb and assume that Danielle does not have $2 million lying around. Marty talked to TMZ about it:
“I was surprised–very surprised–but knowing Danielle as well as I know her, she’s capable of the shock value, so this is her shock value. And I don’t know what the urgency is; I suspect it’s tied to the house and the timing and all that, I suspect that’s part of it. I hope that’s not, I hope it’s really true love. But I don’t know how you can have real true love when the only time you’ve been together was for five days in St. Barts. I’d love anybody I was with in St. Barts!”
Here’s video of Marty’s full hypothesis:
Danielle’s rep, Steve Honig, was appalled about the suggestion that his client–whose been engaged more times than Phyllis on Young and the Restless–was a gold-digger and gave a statement of his own to TMZ:
“Marty needs to stop trying to parlay his 15 minutes of fame into a career in reality television… He should be spending his time addressing his own issues, of which there are many, rather than providing commentary on Danielle.”
Welp, looks like Danielle will just have to wait to be called the “Duchess Prostitution Whore-ah of Provence”. Until then she’s just regular old “Prostitution Whore-ah of New Jersey” which is so much less elegant. Unless she can’t get married and pay off her house and she becomes homeless. Then she’ll be the “Prostitution Whore-ah of Nowhere.”
