'RHONJ' Season 13 Finale: Danielle Cabral tells Melissa Gorga about cheating rumor as Margaret Josephs fights back
NEW JERSEY: The highly anticipated Season 13 finale of 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' has been announced. Danielle Cabral discusses her plan to inform Melissa Gorga about the infidelity rumor, while castmate Jennifer Aydin urges her not to.
'RHONJ' newbie Danielle may have heard the rumor that Melissa cheated on Joe Gorga, but she doesn't believe it. Jennifer A disclosed to Danielle during the cast's trip to Ireland that she heard Melissa cheated on Joe through Margaret's friend, Laura. The Boujie Kids owner claimed during the May 2 episode that she was going to inform Melissa about the rumor, but opted not to since it would spoil Teresa Giudice's bridal shower. However, it was shown in later episodes of the Bravo series that, despite the rumor spread by Margaret's friend, there was no disagreement between Melissa and the 'Caviar Dreams Tuna Fish Budget' author.

Danielle about to drop the bomb on Melissa
Danielle tells Jennifer A her plan to tell Melissa about the infidelity rumor in a sneak peek of the finale broadcast by Bravo TV. "No, Danielle, you can't do that," Jennifer A implored, not wanting to "hurt a family" after what Margaret had done to her last season by exposing Bill Aydin's affair.
"Nobody protected me [last season]," Jennifer A said. "Nobody protected my children. I don’t want to be that girl to another family." Jennifer A stated during her conversation with Danielle, "The point of me telling you was really just to justify the fact that all of this stuff, at the end of the day, comes from Margaret."
Danielle then explained why she wants to disclose the information to Melissa. "If somebody was saying this about me, I’d want to know," said the newcomer, who added in her own confessional, "I don’t want to hurt Melissa. I don’t want to believe the rumor’s true. I just want to tell [her], ‘This is what your friend has told this woman.'"
Jennifer A told Danielle that if she did it again, she would face the consequences. Danielle responded by saying she wouldn't tell Melissa where she got the information.
Danielle admits 'RHONJ' Season 13 finale left her in 'tough spot'
Danielle revealed that the 'RHONJ' Season 13 finale will depict her going through a difficult moment. She admitted to Today that the end of the current season will put her in a "tough spot." "I went through a lot," she said, "and it all comes to a head at the [RHONJ season 13] finale. It was really complicated to try to navigate all these new friendships and the right thing to do as a friend." This appears to be a motif across the Real Housewives franchise, as the ladies form cliques and struggle to do things as a group. She described several situations in which she thought she was "damned if you do, damned if you don't."
'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' Season 13 airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
