Danielle was adopted and raised in Pennsylvania after being born Beverly Ann Merrill on July 29, 1962, to a 15-year-old Italian American mother. It was not a joyful childhood for her, and she revealed in her memoir that she was sexually abused by relatives when she was only eight years old.

She alleges that by the age of 11, she was fighting back and turning away from her adoptive family and friends, but she got involved with “the wrong gang,” according to People magazine, and ended up working as a model in Florida. Danielle was arrested in 1986 in connection with a kidnapping perpetrated by her older, abusive boyfriend and his group. The arrest served as a wake-up call for Danielle about the status of her life, and when the judge was kind to her, she vowed to leave that life behind her and start over. She met and married Kevin Maher in 1986, but charges of his abuse (which he denies) have since surfaced, and they divorced in 1987. She married businessman Thomas Staub in 1993, and the couple had two daughters, Jillian and Christine, before divorcing in 2007.
While Danielle had done some acting in her childhood and more recently, appeared in an episode of the daytime serial All My Children in 2001, she jumped at the chance to join the cast of the reality TV show The Real Housewives of New Jersey when the opportunity arose. Danielle was a member of the cast for the first two seasons before abruptly leaving the show. She was instantly recognizable and received a huge reaction from the nationwide audience. She launched her novel, The Naked Truth, the following year as her life began to shift; she left The Real Housewives of New Jersey in 2010, placed her mansion up for sale, but eventually filed for bankruptcy in 2012. In 2011, Danielle starred in a comedic sketch on the Style Network’s The Dish and co-hosted a gourmet series for VH1 called Famous Food with other reality TV stars Heidi Montag and Jake Pavelka. Danielle has battled mental health concerns and addiction and was sued by her spouse Kevin Maher for his depiction in her memoir (the matter was settled out of court).

Still, a fighter can’t be stopped, and Danielle is on the rise once more. She announced her comeback to The Real Housewives of New Jersey in February 2017, depending on her tagline “You either love me or you hate me!” to say it all. Will her return to the program be as rocky as her first? Nobody knows, but the producers and audience are banking on it. Danielle announced her engagement to long-time lover Marty Caffrey in May, proving that love can strike twice. It’s been a crazy trip, but she’s made it obvious to her detractors that it’s only the beginning.

Danielle is not married at the moment, but she is engaged to Marty Caffrey, her boyfriend. Despite reports in the tabloids that she’s been engaged 19 times (citation needed! ), this is the genuine deal, and cameras were rolling while production for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, so expect to see the moment of truth on-air. Did the dashing Caffrey pop the proposal on one knee, as is customary, or did he go for a more modern, Instagram-friendly approach? We’ll find out soon enough, but given that this is Danielle’s third marriage, she’ll undoubtedly be a seasoned pro in every facet of wedding planning. Who knows, if Season 8 is a success and she returns, there may be a “very special episode” depicting their wedding and all the drama that comes with it.
