Danielle Olivera appeared on Thursday night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, where she spoke about ex-boyfriend Joe Bradley‘s alleged hookup with Luann de Lesseps.

Just over a month after Joe, 28, was accused of getting flirty with the 58-year-old Real Housewives of New York City alum, the Summer House cast member, 35, admitted that like TJ Dinch, 29, she’s “99 percent sure” that the hookup happened as she also spoke of the night of their alleged encounter and her recent split from Joe.

“I also am 99 percent sure. That was also widely uncomfortable to watch. But there is so much that happened after that,” Danielle explained on the February 29 episode of WWHL. “The lying. Joe stayed at my apartment for two days after the alleged sleepover. He lied to my face and said like, ‘Absolutely not. I would never do such a thing.’”

While Danielle was convinced that Joe and Luann did hook up at the reunion, due to comments made by TJ, that wasn’t the only thing that made her think Joe had lied to her.

“Joe had shared his location with me [on] the night of the alleged sleepover,” she revealed. “I had been with some friends in the West Village and I was just kind of like checking in and I saw him going to the Upper East Side, and I was just like, I literally texted, I was like, ‘It looks like you’re going to make a mistake.’ And he said, ‘Absolutely not. I’m just gonna go meet up with my college buddies uptown.’ I should’ve known.”

According to Danielle, Joe slept wherever he ended up but came back to her apartment the following morning, and they spent the next “two nights together.” Then, after traveling to Los Angeles, Danielle decided to end their whirlwind romance, which began after they met at BravoCon.

“I ended it while I was in L.A. Gross, gross, gross,” she stated.

Danielle went on to accuse Joe of “love bombing” her throughout their relationship.

“In my mind, it was a fun fling, but have you ever been loved bombed before? I really don’t recommend it. [He] 100 percent [was love bombing me]. He would say the ‘L’ word and call me his girlfriend,” she shared.

Eventually, before their split, Joe’s behavior led Danielle to pump the breaks.

“I had to like, take it a step back and just really figure out what we were doing. It would’ve been way better if he hadn’t done those things and it could’ve just been fun. I would’ve laughed off like, ‘Okay, the Countess. What a legend. She’s iconic. Go forth and do your thing,’” she noted.

As for whether there would be a “showdown” between her and Luann the next time they see one another, Danielle said, “I mean, we might exchange great stares, like a nice nod…”

Looking back at the reunion, Danielle said she was “not surprised” by Joe denying his hookup with Luann.

“To my face in my apartment he did the same thing,” she stated, adding at another moment that second chances are “not for Joe Bradley.”

“[Or] Tom Sandoval,” she continued. “But I’m obsessed with [Ariana Madix] and [Katie Maloney].”

Moving on to Lindsay Hubbard, 37, and Carl Radke, 39, Danielle said it was “tough to watch” Lindsay label her then-fiance as “cocaine Carl” amid a dispute.

“I had removed myself from the situation so I didn’t really know what was going on. I was there that night and we were partying, but it just seemed like it was a nice, refreshing Carl, and I think Lindsay wasn’t used to seeing that,” she suspected. “He was just being overly fun and kind of like not on her… It was in a bottle service club. It seemed normal, but it was also reminiscent of a more fun Carl.”

Although Danielle wasn’t surprised by Lindsay and Carl’s argument the night it happened, she was caught off-guard by Lindsay doubling down.

“When you see what’s happening in their bedroom, that’s what is way more, okay, there’s something going on here, and she really doubled down on her stance, and I think that if that next morning she might have been like, ‘Listen, I’m sorry I questioned your sobriety, but there’s something different about you right now. We’re not on the same page.’ Because even then, I was just like, ‘Why the next morning when you’re sober are you going to say the same thing?’” she explained.

Also on the live broadcast, after saying that she and Alex Propson, 39, are still in touch and “good” following their fling, Danielle confirmed she is not still in touch with J.D. after kissing him at one of their Summer House parties.

“[He’s] super, super cute, and I just love that he’s one of [West Wilson]’s friends. Anyone that’s in West’s orbit is such a great friendship, but we’re just friends,” she clarified. “I really like J.D. but we haven’t kept in touch.”

Later, on the WWHL: After Show, Danielle was asked if she was surprised by Kory Keefer‘s split from Samantha “Sam” Feher, 26, following his questionable behavior on Winter House season three.

“Unfortunately I wasn’t too surprised,” Danielle admitted. “It really did suck, but Winter House was like a good showing of like, how much he was committal but also a little not, not in the way that he would ever cheat or do anything like that, but just not taking it seriously enough and Sam, she wanted to go the distance and be serious and he just couldn’t do it.”

Although Kory, 33, said he apologized for three months at the reunion, Danielle felt he didn’t do enough to protect Sam.

“[He] still [allowed] her to sit there and cry and get annihilated and like, it’s just, that’s your woman. Can you just do a little more?” she wondered.

As for what took her so long to RSVP to Lindsay and Carl’s wedding, which was supposed to have taken place in Mexico in November, Danielle said she wanted to speak to them first.

“I wanted to hear it from them, Lindsay specifically, that they actually wanted me there,” she explained.

Summer House season eight airs Thursdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
