BRAVO‘s The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo, who refused to accept Danielle Staub’s apology was recently deposed in a Federal defamation lawsuit filed against Danielle by her ex-husband, Kevin Maher. Keep reading for all the details!
Apparently the drama is not only on screen for BRAVO’s The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Caroline Manzo and Danielle Staub as Caroline is now testifying against Danielle in court. Caroline Manzo recounted Danielle’s “tales of a monster” as she told everything Danielle had mentioned about her ex- husband, Kevin Maher. In Caroline’s deposition she says “She depicted him as someone who would beat her daily, as someone that put her in the hospital due to the beatings, I want to say on more than one occasion.” Manzo was deposed on behalf of Maher in an effort to help prove his defamation claim against Danielle. Maher claims the former Real Housewife of New Jersey star made allegations to other people about him, including that he raped her on broken glass, sticking a gun inside of her and hanging her dog.
Reported by Radaronline Caroline also says in her deposition “She told a story about being raped on broken glass. One incident, she said that he shot her dog. And then another incident she claimed that he hanged her dog. I’m confused as to whether this all was at the same moment of the rape on the glass with the dog, and inserted a pistol up her vagina and played like a Russian roulette.” and she continues with “She claimed to have been hiding in a tree at some point, afraid that when he came home he would find her and beat her. She claimed to be the victim of prostitution due to his demands, that he put her into that world, again depicting him as an absolute monster. And the only reason she stayed with him, because she feared for her life if she left.” For the full deposition, be sure to visit Radaronline. Danielle has filed a motion with the court to dismiss the case, so as we get more details, we will be sure to post them!
