Days after the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member posted an image of herself and Oliver enjoying a tropical getaway in St. Barth, he’s been forced to speak out after rumors began swirling in regard to a reunion with an ex-girlfriend, who is reportedly the “best friend” of Danielle.
On February 27, sources told All About the Tea that Gina Curko was “hysterical” after learning her ex Oliver, a millionaire investment banker, had embarked on a new romance with the reality star. However, when she allegedly confronted Oliver about the photo Danielle shared on her page, he reportedly credited the image to photoshop and denied the romance completely.
“Oliver has been calling Gina since the story broke…trying to work things out…saying ‘it’s not what you think,’” an insider claimed. “He does not want anything to do with Danielle.”
Meanwhile, Danielle was reportedly left to clean up the mess she made with her friend, who is both a boss and a business mentor to her daughter Jillian.
“Danielle is scrambling because she knows that she shot herself in the foot by posting that photo,” the source continued. “Oliver doesn’t want her, and Danielle has lost her best friend.”
According to the report, Danielle, whose divorce from Marty Caffrey was finalized last week, flew back to the United States on Wednesday on a separate flight from Oliver. However, according to Oliver, he’s not trying to get back with his ex.
During an interview with Page Six, Oliver confirmed the end of his relationship with Gina and slammed her for acting immaturely after seeing Danielle’s photo.
“I ended my relationship with Gina because it was not working,” Oliver said. “My current relationship with Danielle did not have anything to do with that decision. I have no interest in a current or future relationship with Gina. Since our relationship ended she has been harassing me and my family, as well as trying to use this situation as an opportunity to get on the show and promote her boutique. She needs to stop this childish behavior, act like an adult and move on with her life.”
Page Six revealed that while Danielle and Oliver have been friends for a substantial amount of time, they did not become “romantically involved” until a few weeks ago.
Following Danielle’s romantic photo post of herself and Oliver, her former friend and co-star, Margaret Josephs, shared her thoughts on the relationship and joked that her image was “a very classy move.”
“She’s sleeping with one of her best friends boyfriends she knows for one week true love for sure!” Margaret tweeted.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season nine reunion concludes next Wednesday at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
