Did RHONJ’s Danielle Staub Take Her Best Friend’s Boyfriend? It Looks That Way

Danielle Staub on the beach Instagram

The gossip on the streets is that Danielle Staub has her best friend’s boyfriend between the sheets! She recently let the world in on her new romance in a very public way. The infamous Real Housewives of New Jersey star posted a photo on Instagram of her kissing an unnamed man. Was the hashtag “mystery solved” in response to reports of a mysterious new man in her life?

According to her RHONJ co-star and former bestie, Margaret Josephs, the mystery man had been dating one of Danielle’s close friends. The man has since been identified as businessman Oliver Maier.

Recent Divorce

Fans of the Bravo reality show know that Danielle recently divorced Marty Caffrey after a short four months of marriage. Their engagement and wedding were featured on seasons 8 and 9 of the show.

Amid mutual allegations of abuse, the couple separated after just two months. Their divorce was finalized a few days before her Instagram post with new beau Oliver. It looks like she waited to share who it was because of her divorce. 

Margaret’s Accusation

Sources say Danielle was introduced to Oliver in early February by her close friend. The friend is now reeling from what must feel like a double betrayal. Because of this, she could have lost her best friend.


Margaret claims to be a mutual friend of the woman and refers to the woman as Danielle’s “best friend.” According to Margaret, Danielle had only known the man for a week before she started sleeping with him.


Viewers know that Danielle has a long history of going through friends almost as often as she goes through men. Danielle and co-star Teresa Giudice may be friends again (for now.) They certainly weren’t friends when Teresa flipped a table on Danielle back in Season 1 of Real Housewives of New Jersey. The ladies publicly feuded for many years after the iconic table-flip. Danielle has also had feuds with Dina Manzo, Dolores Catania, and most recently Margaret, among others.

Her marriage to Marty was her 3rd trip down the aisle. Revisiting Season 1 once again, Danielle claimed that she had been engaged a whopping 19 times… and that was ten years ago. With her track record, Oliver should be popping the question any day now.

Tune in to Real Housewives of New Jersey to watch how the drama unfolds next season. The reunion episodes were already filmed before this new love of Danielle’s debuted.
