Danielle, who was part of the main cast of RHONJ for the first two seasons, starting in 2009, revealed in late November 2018 that she has rheumatoid arthritis.
Initially, she decided to keep the diagnosis hidden, but eventually decided to go public with the news when she realized her appearance was changing due to treatment for the disease which included the steroid prednisone and chemotherapy.
“I was trying to learn to navigate and accept it in my body because I always felt like nothing would slow me down, nothing would stop me.” she said The dish of the day in 2018, adding: “I had this diagnosis for a while but it didn’t really settle – then it settled.”

According to Mayo Clinicrheumatoid arthritis is defined as “a chronic inflammatory disorder affecting many joints, including those of the hands and feet”.
It’s a “chronic inflammatory disorder that can affect more than your joints.” In some people, “the disease can also damage a wide variety of bodily systems, including the skin, eyes, lungs, heart, and blood vessels.” An autoimmune disease, rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body’s tissues.”
Just last week, Danielle took to her Instagram page to wish her youngest daughter a happy birthday.
“Join me in wishing my beautiful daughter @_jillianstaub a very happy 24th birthday!” she captioned a photo of herself and Jillian. ‘What an honor it is to be your mother! I can’t wait to see what you do next, I love you. #birthday #daughter #happybirthday #hbd’
After leaving RHONJ after season two in 2010, Daniele returned to the show as a recurring cast member, dubbed “a housewives friend”, for seasons eight through ten. But in January 2020, she announced his final departure from the reality series.
