Danielle admitted to Oprah that she “got broken so bad” by the Housewives fallout that she became suicidal.
On the episode, the mother-of-two recalled how her criminal history became exposed. Her convictions and mug shots were publicised online. At the same time, there were additional allegations being made by co-stars including Teresa Giudice. Danielle also starred in two leaked tapes and worked in a strip club.
“Unfortunately, there was some really difficult moments which ended up being the turning point for me,” Danielle admits. Adding that she asked her ex-husband to care for their children during a time she worried she might harm herself.
She continued, “The only reason I didn’t is because I would never want that to be the last memory my kids had of me.”
