Danielle Cabral, a rookie to “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” is certain that Teresa Giudice will win this season.
In a forthcoming episode of Page Six’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast, Cabral, 37, reveals why she thinks the original cast of the series will be “vindicated” after her conflict with Joe Gorga’s brother and Melissa Gorga’s sister-in-law plays out on the reality program.
When questioned about Giudice’s alleged participation in spreading unfaithfulness accusations about the Gorgas, the blond beauty responds, “I can’t wait for this season to show since it is the No. 1 question.”
She says, “I cannot wait for that story to emerge and for you guys to see what really transpired. “Because everyone is mistaken,”
In the Season 13 teaser, Cabral is shown listening to Jennifer Aydin, a well-known supporter of Giudice’s and an adversary of the Gorgas, accuse Melissa, 43, of having an affair with Joe, 47.
Aydin claims in the video that “he spotted Melissa in the backseat and she was making out with another man.”
Cabral claims that when she heard the comments come out of Aydin’s lips, she was “upset.”
I thought, “Dang! You don’t want to know certain things because once you do, you get engaged in certain things and end yourself in circumstances you wish you had never been in, she laments.
The Bravo newbie claims that although the rumors’ nature didn’t necessarily surprise her, the situation they placed her in made her angry.
“I believe it was my moment of understanding. It wasn’t a “Oh my God” moment, she claims. ‘Oh s—t, now I’m involved,’ was the reaction.
Giudice, 50, and the Gorgas split up after she repeated cruel rumors that Melissa had an affair with Joe’s longtime friend Nick Barrotta, as Page Six exclusively revealed in August 2022.
The Gorgas decided to forgo Giudice’s wedding to Luis “Louie Ruelas on August 6 as a consequence of the Season 13 finale’s violent brawl that broke out while the cameras were rolling. The Gorgas, who have been married since 2004, and who have three children together, “laughed off” the allegations, a source earlier told Page Six, despite the altercation.
On her “On Display” podcast, Melissa remarked, “Sometimes when things are too toxic and you try over and over and over again and it just keeps coming back to the same thing, even if it’s family, you have to let it go.”
According to Cabral, she tried to mediate a settlement between Giudice and the Gorgas but was unsuccessful.
She claims, “I tried to be that mediator in so many ways this season.
In the midst of the turmoil, Cabral finally became closer with Giudice and Aydin, preventing deep bonds from emerging with the pair’s customary on-screen rivals: Melissa, Margaret Josephs, Jackie Goldschneider, and fellow newcomer Rachel Fuda.
The mother of two, who has a boy named Dominic and a daughter named Valentina with her husband Nate Cabral, believes that she and Fuda, a 31-year-old young mom, would eventually get along at the very least.
Because of what happened, I really hope I can help Rachel. What is, is what is. However, I believe that we are really similar, and our friendship was very sincere at first, says Danielle.
And I hope we arrive in a better location. I hope we avoid treating this like it’s between Team A and Team B. Can we simply introduce ourselves as the new females on the street and get along?
Season 13 of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” debuts on Bravo on Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET.
