Now that we’ve seen Danielle Staub kiss and make up on the ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ reunion, surely she’ll find room in her forgiving heart to offer Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita a couple cameos on her new spinoff, right?

“Not from my franchise, no!” she tells RadarOnline.com. “It’s mine, it’s all mine. I made peace at the end of the reunion by my departure and it was my idea to depart. It was a peaceful time for me and I wanted to leave and I was just trying to say goodbye from a 12-hour shooting day… but it really marked for me my new beginning and I’m really excited about it because when you close one door, not just another one opens but so many more.”

So what was the meaning behind all those butterfly smooches and nuzzles at the end of the finale? According to Danny Girl, she essentially wanted Teresa “to shut up,” so she walked over and “genuinely hugged her because it calms my children if my children are upset…because I was done.” Comparing Teresa to a tantrum-laden child?! Great compliment, Danielle!

What were the top moments from the past RHONJ season?

As for the embrace and tender whispers to Jacqueline? Staub claims her gesture was made in love but “wasn’t a way of me saying I want a friendship” but rather, she was “saying goodbye and I’m moving on.”

Now that it seems the former ‘Real’ Housewife has made her intentions clear, whomever will she allow to take part in her “franchise”? Apparently, she’s made some new, arguably appropriate gal pals.

“Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon, they’ve reached out to me on several occasions with very, very, very kind hearts when I’ve been under fire and befriended me and they’ve also vindicated me in situations knowing that [there] were lies going on because the other women on my cast had gone to them…” she states. “They were my favorites because they just kept it real and a lot of people aren’t real and don’t tell the truth.”

Imagining the trouble-making threesome crossing over into each other’s shows would be like watching a middle-aged version of ‘Heathers.’ We shutter to think.
