'NJ Housewife' Slams 'Deranged' Danielle Staub

9/18/2010 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained footage of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Caroline Manzo blasting her former castmate Danielle Staub --  calling her a "pathological liar, sociopath, con artist" ... and "deranged."

Manzo sat in front of a camera on July 22 for a deposition in Staub's ferocious legal war with her ex-husband Kevin Maher ... who's demanding $10 million for alleged defamation.

During the depo -- Manzo claims Staub told stories about her alleged abusive past with Maher ... including one situation where Maher allegedly raped Staub on broken glass, killed her dog and "inserted a pistol up her vagina."

Staub has claimed Maher has "no evidence" she ever made those statements about him.

Best part of the tape -- Manzo is asked about Staub's "propensity for truthfulness" ... and Caroline just unloads.

You gotta watch this.

Wow.. talk about miss leading the public....TMZ shame on you! You placed a crazy pic and said she "unloaded" Looked like a normal type of depo to me.

I highly doubt Caroline offered to get involved and be deposed in Danielle's case. I am guessing that since she "worked" (filmed) with her, she had to do the deposition. I would guess Caroline isn't the only one from the cast who was deposed.

She was spot on accurate. This was a deposition people, she was not bashing Danielle for the hell of it!

To "Angel," Right I am sure you are. Read your post you hypocrite. "People that are happy in life do not obsess and continually degrade and insult anyone!!" Hey Pot.....

Guys..... This is a deposition! Most likely Carolyn didn't have a choice to be in that room talking about sweet Danielle! Come on! Every negative comment about Carolyn here on TMZ is most likely from Danielle herself........LOL Seriously! Anyone that watches the show, lives in their community, etc. knows how crazy Danielle is! I just feel for her children. Hopefully her children will get into a safe environment.

Caroline Manzo and her family need to stop pretending that they aren't ****ing garbage just like Danielle and all the other low life bankrupt s*** on the Housewives show. It's like their whole life is the world's trashiest kindergarten. All of these people need to grow the **** up. It's humiliating to call them homo sapiens. The fact that Caroline finds the balls to be so self-righteous is a mental condition in itself.

The commenter Angel reads like something Danielle would write. Glad to see her commenting on her own story.

Carolyn is required to attend the deposition upon the order of the court at the request of Danielle's ex-husbands lawyer. This is reality, not reality TV. Carolyn didn't just show up to a cast member taping, she was required to give a statement out of court but under oath.

All the episodes seem to back up Carolyn's claims that Danielle is a sociopath. The Danielle episodes would be a good teaching tool for diagnosing sociopathic behavior.

TMZ mischaracterized the deposition. There wasn't an unloading and I dont know where they got that screen shot photograph. Very misleading TMZ.

Happy Day    

I'm willing to bet that Danielle and some of her minions have posted a few times on this story! Because many of the posts certainly sound just like her. Especially since Dina has been specifically mentioned…and she wasn’t even a part of this article, the second half of the show, nor the reunion! Danielle has been so obsessed with Dina for the past two seasons, craving her attention and acceptance! So sad that Danielle can only define herself through others.

In the “face-to-face” dinner that Danielle had with Caroline, a point was made that Danielle doesn’t stop when the adults don’t give her what she’s after…she heads straight for their children! She’s been after Christopher, Lexi and Ashley (even before the hair pulling thing)! Danielle wants what she wants, when she wants it, and doesn’t care who she hurts, slanders, defames, or injures along the way. Afterall, it was Danielle that was bringing ex-cons and armed thugs to dinners and events, not the other housewives. Danielle's children should be very cautious if they get in her way...she will probably mow them over just as easily as she attempted to have Dina’s daughter taken away from her!

As for Caroline and the deposition, one typically does not involve oneself in such events. You must be subpoenaed to participate, and that is what seems to have occurred! Maybe Danielle should have been a little more cautious and showed a little more compassion when it came to trying to bring down the other housewives! As Danielle herself said, “Karma is a bigger bitch than I will ever be!” How does that karma feel slappin’ you in the face Danielle? OUCH!

IF, SOMEONE HAS ANY MENTAL, PHYSICAL PROBLEMS. WOULDN'T YOU WANT TO BE COMPATIONATE AND KIND?
IF YOUR "FAMILY" IS SO "UPSTANDING" WHY WOULD YOU RESORT TO NAME CALLING, DEMEANING CHILDREN AND FULL ATTACKS ON A PERSON AND HER FAMILY WHEN IT'S OBVIOUS THIS PERSON JUST WANTED TO BE ACCEPTED. REGARDLESS OF HOW SHE WENT ABOUT IT!
ALL OF THE COVERUPS OF HELPING THE POLICE DEPT. BUDDA, LETTING GO OF THE NEGATIVE, HAVING SUCH AN UPSTANDING FAMILY WITH UPMOST MORALS, MEANS NOTHING.
ALL OF YOUR ACTIONS HAVE SPOKEN LOUD AND CLEAR!!!!!!!!!!!
DANIELLE'S CHILDREN DESERVE AN APPOLOGY ON TV AND ELSEWHERE
FROM YOU ALL!!
MAYBE ONEDAY WHEN YOUR CHILDREN ARE CALLED NAMES ON NATL. TELEVISION AND THEIR MOTHER IS LAUAGHED AT, MOCKED, GANGED UP ON BY SO CALLED RIGHTOUS PEOPLE YOU WILL GET A REALITY CK!

Who'sThat    

paleeese...sheesh, Danielle is not a sociopath, she is a woman who made some mistake at her young age and now trying to live a new life with her 2 daughters...it's the other people making sure she doesn't forget what she did years ago...HOW SICKENING is that??

caroline and theresa are 2 hateful women. caroline needs to be a control freak and keeps bringing up her family constantly, you know? we all have families we love, but we don't constantly bring them up in every conversation...learn to stand on your own 2 feet, why don't you? you are like the maternal instinct gone to far!
teresa is a loud mouthed dim-witted violent soul...all she cares about is treating her daughters like her dolls and dress them up for a shoot...lol her firstborn, although a pretty girl, is too short to be a model, will never make it among those beautiful girls. you can tell already she is going to be a short and thick...spends money like she has a money tree, turns out, it was our money with her bankruptcy, she has been living like a queen using our money she has borrowed and refusing to pay back, her and her hubby...WOW WINNERS? NOT!

these 2 women belong in an institution...they need to learn to how to get along with other women...obviously, they are hateful people to others as long as their "family" is ok, it doesn't matter what happens to everybody else...they are cruel and mean, esp to Danielle. it's like their lives are so fkn boring if they don't talk about her!

they need to leave Danielle alone...she hasn't done anything to them...they start crap with her and always talk about her even when she isn't around! LMAO! so pathetic! OBSESS Much?

i feel that Danielle's only defense is to keep her head up high and to continue her life...which is what she is trying to do...only if these 2 losers would just stay out of her life! they purposefully place themselves in Danielle's life then yell and scream and bitch at her...ALL B/C OF SOMETHING SHE DID AS A KID WHICH SHE HAS OWNED UP TO...MAYBE SHE IS TOO EMBARRASSED TO SAY WHAT REALLY WENT ON? BTW...why o why should she tell these bitches anything about what happened or even if she told something untrue...so what? its none of their damn business!

what a bunch! BRAVO?....NOT! LOSERS? YES!

Danielle's reality is her poor excuse as a mother, friend, and fellow citizen. She has NO respect for anyone because she has absolutely no respect for herself. All of you calling yourselves "TEAM DANIELLE" really condone her behavior? What does that say about your morals or lack thereof? These are not middle school "mean girl" antics. She is a grown woman with children. It is high time she gets guidance. Professional guidance not the idiots that "yes! yes! yes!" her then leave the room and LTAO!

"Housewives" staff certainly did not vent this woman before putting her in this show. The show became "hers". Nearly every week the story was about her. Why did they do that? Ratings isn't a good reason. She is ruining the series. Please don't hire anymore disgusting nut cases!

#27 Danielle's children do deserve an apology. It needs to come from their mother on TV, online, in print, and most importantly in private. They need professional help as well.

Thanx for posting that interview - that was the bomb!

It's good that Daniel's type has a spotlight on it, for anyone who doesn't know people like that exist. Look at Bernie Madoff! OJ Simpson. They pull an act and lie so much, they have themselves convinced.
