'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.

All I can say is, if certain posters here are, indeed, Danielle, then Caroline was kind to her. Danielle is even nuttier than Caroline portrayed her! Whew, how could anyone stand filming with her for a minute, let alone a season?

Caroline Manzo merely pointed out what 95% of the audience know to be true about Danielle Staub. DS is a vicious, manipulative, pathological liar. I watched the entire season of RHNJ and I was stunned at what a monster Danielle was. I don't understand why her ex-husband or social services hasn't stepped in and taken those children away from her. She's a psycho. It's entertaining to read posts defending her. Either they're written by Danielle herself, or by whoever she's friends with this week. I say this week, because someone with such strong personality disorders can't maintain relationships for very long.

SERIOUSLY MICHAEL?    

Truth be told..most of the negative comments have probably been made on here by Jaq & daughter about Danielle..they have been found to be "allegedly" attacking fans of the show on twitter. They aren't quite bright enough to realize IP addy's can be traced.No matter how many new twitter accounts they make up(darlings...did you no realize that no one who doesn't follow those posting to you sees what is tweeted to you unless they follow that person) Wonder how they're gonna feel when all that comes to light It will be as embarassing as Jill and that whole book scandal. Danielle maybe out there, but opening new twitter accounts to bash fans is no exactly sane either. Let's see the ratings for the RHONJ next season and see how interested the fans are in all of you.

Caroline is a jealous moron. If Danielle is what she says, then why bother with her? Jealousy is why.

Caroline is bossy, manipulative and has an inflated sense of herself. She is always saying that she has integrity, but people with integrity don't have to announce it. The way these women treated Danielle was awful. They were like a pack of wolves.

Why is Caroline even testifying in this case? I thought she wanted to avoid drama. I thought she was above it all. Yeah, right. I don't believe for one minute that Danielle told her anything about her ex-husband. Furthermore, Danielle's ex has a shady past, so his credibility is in question. I also don't believe that Danielle tried to have Dina's daughter taken away.

Caroline needs to end her obsession with Danielle and get a life. One more thing. I can't stand how when Caroline says family, it sounds like "fambly."

Caroline Manzo is the real crazy one. What an annoying loud-mouth. Danielle seems like the most normal one from the bunch of low-life crazies on the New Jersey cast.

Danielle, Keep your head high, continue to love your girls and know that you do not need to do anything sexy anymore. You are loved and ok just the way you are! You do not need to lower yourself. All of the seedy things do not need to be part of you ever! Stand tall, protect your daughters and always take the high road.
You really do have class and compassion. Please do not lower yourself for men or attention.
You are very attractive and do not need to dress sexy.
You are in this life for a purpose and all of the best to you and your girls. Ton's of people really do care about you!

This has been so entertaining, almost all comments are from RHONJ. Do you women get paid to follow stories of yourself and comment to create drama? What a sad bunch you all are... oh and Danielle please get a life and stop hanging with the Hoboken boys, their so 1990's.

Check your staff for using this pic in this story. WTF? No journalistic integrity, whatsoever. Come on, Harvey.
Caroline Manzo was deposed, so all these idiots who slam her for judging Danielle Staub, clearly don't take into consideration the legal process. She's being sued all over the place, and no doubt there will be more suits against her. Mrs. Manzo has been upfront from day one concerning her intense suspicions about Danielle, and was spot on. Actually, a person would have to be as completely naive as her sister-in-law, Jacqueline, not to see there would be major problems from associating with the likes of this lying nympho. She was more than right and I'm sure it will take some time before they entirely shake this creepy, sociopathic person from their lives.

I think Danielle is awesome and the rest of the bitches are just that....bitches who think their **** don't stink. Dina is a louse. Caroline is whacked out on something all the time. Their is no normalcy in any of them. Danielle you go girl. The rest are just jealous of you.

Any person that has gone through a deposition knows the truth. Caroline was sworn in to tell the truth and nothing but the trugh. She was subpoenaed. She just didn't go in there on her own accord. My one and only deposition took 3 sets of lawyers from varrying sides and took no less than 3 hours to complete.

Danielle is one massive lying hypocritical psychopath lying square titted S.O.B.

Ya know I dont have kids myself, but god forbid I would not want or let anyone like her near them.

Any one of us would be luky to have a Woman such as Caroline as a mother. She is warm, good hearted, and loving - but yet strict - and most importantly - she would fight for you to the death.

Spare the Rod and spoil the Child. God help us if we all wind up with a mother like Danielle. Her children barely have the courage to look her straght in the face.

Ya know - even Theresa's kids look up to the Manzo's. Theresa and Joe may give the girls a little too much and not disipline them enough, but when the Manzo's babbysitted for them while on the cruie, the girls did respect them and had fun with them.

THEY ARE ALL CRAZY!!!!! TERESA NEEDS ANGER MANAGEMENT. SHE THINKS SHE IS A THUG AND BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE. CAROLINE THINKS SHE IS A PROPHET. SHE THINKS SHE HAS ALL THE ANSWERS. DANIELLE DOES NEED HELP, BUT THE OTHER HOUSEWIVES DID NOTHING BUT ATTACK HER. NO WONDER SHE ACTS THE WAY SHE DOES. THEY ALL NEED HEAVY THERAPY. JACQUELINE AND DINA ARE ABOUT THE ONLY TWO WHO DO NOT ACT UPPITY, ALTHOUGH THEY GO ALONG WITH THE OTHER HOUSEWIVES. SHAME ON ALL OF THEM. YOU ARE ALL A MISERABLE BUNCH, ESPECIALLY CAROLINE, WHO WANTS NOTHING BUT TO SEE DANIELLE GO DOWN. BECAUSE OF THE HATRED SHE HAS FOR DANIELLE, YOU CAN'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING SHE HAS TO SAY.

Isn't she something.
Vile! Pitbull!
It is never a good thing to criticize others. Sometimes you have to back pedal and look at your own life.
I do not respect any of the women in that family OR that wanna be manzo, Teresa. BRAVO.........show me some nice women that work their butts off and don't have time for the nonsense you shoved down out throats this season. Unfortunately BRAVO and Andy Cohen are laughing all the way to the bank.
