Steve Honig, who worked for Danielle from 2018-2019, tells The Blast, “WWHL (What What Happens Live) and Andy were always respectful and professional toward Danielle and constantly went above-and-beyond to accommodate her needs and give her a voice. She was always shown empathy and understanding and given a fair platform on which to express herself. I find her comments to be untrue and, quite frankly, disgraceful.”
Earlier this week, Danielle made headlines after calling out Andy Cohen on social media. She wrote a lengthy statement saying she was reading to spill all about the Bravo exec.
The “RHONJ” star said, “I finally open up about @bravoandy. I am no longer forced to walk into the Lions Den! Andy kept me In the dark long enough! He has taken whats mine and given it to others! Now that you are a parent I’d hoped you would see some of the pain you caused my family, even when I left the show to protect my young children, you mocked me repeatedly defaming me and yet I still continued to give you over a decade to do right by me and mine! Now it’s time you understand that “for every action there is a reaction.” You must’ve seen this coming and YOU know you were wrong, yet you continued.”
She continued, “So for all the times you held me down and picked me apart instead of building me up and standing with me, for all the times you made me stand alone “kept me in the dark”, may you tread lightly in your own darkness. “For letting me be the last to know” may you learn to do better.
Danielle ended, “May you and yours never experience the pain you’ve caused my children and I. Take it or leave it, but my advise is You should lead by example bc many have put you on a pedestal they watch you and wait for you to lead, where they may follow . And follow they have they Follow your lead and mirror your behavior. I should know because the way you’ve treated me is duplicated and reflected by your fans. I’ve been waiting for you to revere me, I’ve even gone as far as to ask you to be kinder and more gentle with me but it fell on deaf ears. No more waiting or asking, i have no hate no more respect I don’t honor you and I won’t defend you. But I will advise: “ be careful who’s toes you step on today because they may be attached to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow”
