Dolores Catania Says Jackie Goldschneider “Didn’t Really Take” to Danielle Cabral (EXCLUSIVE)
While Jackie Goldschneider isn’t a main cast member in Season 13 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, she is still stirring up enough drama to keep us watching her scenes. Her most recent feud with RHONJ newbie Danielle Cabral has become so intense that Jackie’s mom jumped in and said Danielle has “no class, culture, or manners” underneath Danielle’s Instagram photo.
With all of the issues between Danielle and Jackie, we wondered how their mutual cast members might be taking the new drama. While discussing the season, Dolores Catania, who recently became friends with Danielle and had a long history with Jackie, exclusively shared with Distractify her thoughts on Danielle Cabral and Jackie Goldschneider’s feud.
Danielle Cabral and Jackie Goldschneider’s feud began during the ‘RHONJ’ Season 13 premiere.
Danielle is close friends with Teresa Giudice, who had a huge blowup with Jackie in Season 11. While Teresa and Jackie have resolved their issues, Jackie seemingly doesn’t see it for the woman Teresa said “reminds me of me” — i.e., Danielle.
Jackie and Danielle’s feud started when the co-stars met in the RHONJ season premiere. They attended a photoshoot at Margaret Josephs’s house during the premiere, including all of the Jersey housewives’ men. While Danielle cheered on her hubby, Nate Cabral, she noticed Jackie, who was there with her husband, Evan, was “eyeing her up and down,” which signaled to Danielle that Jackie didn’t like her. Danielle responded by not inviting Jackie to her mozzarella-making party even though the rest of the cast received an invite.
Jackie confirmed Danielle’s suspicions in the third episode of the season. She claimed in the episode that the new housewife’s fashion sense was deplorable, stating her look for the day was “a train wreck [from] top to bottom.” Jackie added that Danielle’s shorts could use a strong iron, noting they looked like she took them “out of the hamper and put them on.”
Dolores Catania told us she was “a little surprised” to see Jackie and Danielle’s feud.
Danielle has become a little closer to Dolores, as the ladies have been bonding over their shared New Yorker lifestyles.
In an exclusive interview with Distractify, Dolores weighed in on Jackie and Danielle’s growing beef.
Dolores says that, out of the many feuds this season, she “couldn’t have seen” the one between Danielle and Jackie coming.
“The Danielle and Jackie thing was a little bit of a surprise for me. Jackie was very boisterous this season about how she felt about Danielle,” Dolores told us about the feud. “So that was a little bit of strife because we're just getting to know Danielle. She just kind of, like, didn't really take to her. I couldn't have seen that coming.”
Dolores also admitted there isn’t much about RHONJ that surprises her anymore. The Paterson native says that Danielle and Jackie can move on from their feud.
“That was a little bit of a surprise, but I mean, it's OK,” Dolores shared, reminding us, "They're big girls. They can handle themselves.”
Jackie Goldschneider doesn’t “really care” about her and Danielle Cabral’s feud.
While Dolores thinks Danielle and Jackie could eventually sort out their issues, Jackie shared on a podcast in March 2023 that she doesn’t care either way. Days after her comments about Danielle aired, Jackie said they haven’t been able to hash out their issues, and she doesn’t see them becoming friends anytime soon.
“Danielle decided she didn't like me right from the jump, so whatever. I don't really care about that," Jackie said in a March 2023 interview with the In The Know podcast.
We hope Jackie and Danielle are in a better place before The Real Housewives of New Jersey wraps for Season 13!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
