“Real Housewives of New Jersey” alum Kim DePaola spoke about the show’s season 13 cast during a December 2022 episode of the “Behind The Velvet Rope” podcast. The former Bravo star claimed one of the show’s new personalities, Danielle Cabral, has made an alliance with Teresa Giudice, who began starring in the series during its first season.

“She was brought on to be Teresa’s lap dog, to be her soldier,” asserted the former RHONJ personality.

DePaola went on to say that she does not believe Giudice’s friendship with Cabral is genuine.

“[Teresa] doesn’t have a real friend that can come onto this show and it would last, you know what I’m saying? So they have to get someone, random, Danielle lives in Central Jersey, she doesn’t live anywhere around here. And bring her on and she’s told what to do,” alleged the 61-year-old.

DePaola also claimed that Giudice has been spending time with individuals who have spoken negatively about her.

“I see Teresa now hanging around with this one group of girls that used to knock her. They used to knock her. And I watch it now and I’m like I can’t believe that these people who used to talk s*** and now all of the sudden they are like a group, you know, and I laugh about it,” shared the former reality television personality.
