This is such a surprise to us!!!!
Okay, so maybe it wasn't such a surprise. Suuuure, Real Housewives of New Jersey's Danielle Staub has been to known to exaggerate and tell little white lies here and there.
So of course it doesn't really come to a shock to us that her lebsian romance with musician Lori Michaels was just a publicity stunt.
A friend confirmed that they were "physical" with one another, but the two weren't in a real committed relationship with each other.
The friend adds:
"They were not a couple. Did they have a connection? Yes. Was it was very strong through work and song? Yes. Did Danielle feel more? Yes. Did she indicate that to Lori? Yes. But Lori was never going to put herself in a place where she was going to run away with Danielle.
It became a complicated relationship. Danielle's an all-or-nothing person and maybe it'll have to be the nothing because Lori's not dealing with the all."
The friend also confirmed what we knew all along. The women parted ways because of "The Danielle Staubness."
Not gonna lie, we're sad that we'll no longer see them connect through "work and song" with another duet performance of their song Real Close. We hope Danielle can cope through this really difficult time.
