Danielle Cabral just announced that she will be going under the knife for a tummy tuck on Thursday.
In a series of posts shared to her Instagram Story on Wednesday, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star opened up about her body struggles as she admitted to being envious of Dolores Catania‘s surgically-enhanced physique and opened up about the two previous surgeries she’s had.
“Meet my [longtime] doctor and friend [Dr. John Paul Tutela] … Dr. Tutela has performed my reconstructive breast surgery and rhinoplasty surgery … He is wonderful!” Danielle wrote in one of her July 5 posts, which included an image of herself and her plastic surgeon.
Then, in the first of three videos, Danielle said she thinks it’s time that she shares “a little something” with her online fanbase before confirming that something special would be happening “in 24 hours.”
“So I’m in the best shape of my life. I do CrossFit every day. I work my a– off. But I have not worn a bikini in eight years, I have not worn a crop top,” Danielle explained, proceeding to give a nod to Dolores’ body, which has undergone a tummy tuck and liposuction in recent years.
“I can’t even tell you what it’s like to film [RHONJ] with Dolores Catania and that body-ody-ody. I wanna jump off the f-cking bridge,” she confessed. “And I made the decision, finally, to do something about it, not for vain reasons, well maybe slightly a little bit, but I just want to feel good in my own skin.”
Continuing on in one final video, Danielle revealed that she is getting a tummy tuck.
“So after I had my children, I had stretch marks, obvi, but I have excess skin around my stomach that I just cannot lose so tomorrow, I will be getting what they call a mommy makeover, a tummy tuck, and I am so nervous,” she shared. “I know it’s a very big surgery so if anybody has done it before, please share your insights and I will be documenting everything.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey is currently on “pause” amid ongoing casting discussions.
