'RHONJ' Star Jackie Goldschneider Claims Danielle Stereotyped Her

Jackie Goldschneider claims Danielle Cabral never gave their friendship a fair chance.

As the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast looked back on the many questions surrounding Danielle and her drama with her estranged brother, Jackie suspected she’d been stereotyped by Danielle as Margaret Josephs, and Jennifer Fessler admitted to having doubts about Danielle’s story.

“I actually wanted to see if I could have a friendship with Danielle. I really actually wanted her to look at me through a different lens, and there was never any chance of that,” Jackie stated on the April 4 episode of the RHONJ: After Show.

“I think that unfortunately, Danielle had already stereotyped me into the person she wanted me to be and I think that most of us called her out on the brother story and she took it all out on me,” Jackie continued.

According to Jackie, she believes that if Danielle had simply answered the questions about her brother calmly, no one would have second-guessed her.

Meanwhile, Margaret believes Danielle is struggling with the truth.

“No one believes her. I mean, this girl can’t face anything, the truth, any questioning, she’s a little immature, truthfully, and overly sensitive,” she stated.

Then, after Rachel Fuda said Danielle’s theatrics were “literally laughable,” Danielle explained herself.

“I’m out of my element in these situations. I’m not used to all this sh-t that’s going down. [Jennifer Aydin]’s the comeback queen … I’m not. I’m not very good at coming back to kill somebody. I take it in,” she shared. “So, when you come at me, and you do things that make me feel a certain way, it processes in my head first.”

As Danielle revealed, she’s “not good with her words.”

“I gotta process it. And then I come back at you. I wish I was like [Jennifer] in that aspect. I’m not good with my words. I like to knock people out,” she admitted.

Looking back at the moment in which Danielle called Rachel a “bitch,” Melissa Gorga said it felt “dramatic” and suspected she was “looking for a fight.”

Danielle may also have been looking for a fight with Jackie.

“She said something to me, something very very hurtful in response, like, ‘You’ve never had a relationship with your sister so you don’t know,’” Jackie recalled. “And in that moment I was like, ‘Okay, well, thank you because I’ll never waste another f-cking second trying to be your friend.'”

Jackie continued on, saying that “nobody is closer to their sibling than [she is] to [her] brother.”

“Nobody protects their sibling or loves their sibling the way I do my brother. So I do know a thing about loving your sibling,” she insisted. “[And] I’m not gonna be sorry for being the bigger person or for trying. She showed me who she is, and I think the universe will do its thing.”

After telling Jackie that Danielle shouldn’t have said that, Jennifer Fessler confessed to thinking that Danielle wasn’t telling the whole story.

“[And] if you are that desperate to get back with your brother, this — and I know Danielle’s smart enough to know — this ain’t the way to do it,” she pointed out as Jackie said making amends with her brother was “clearly” not Danielle’s “priority.”

Elsewhere, as Teresa Giudice said Danielle’s issues with her brother were “none of [her business],” Dolores Catania claimed the cast “should not question” her story.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 13 airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
