Danielle Staub got her DD breast implants removed! The Real Housewives of New Jersey star opened up in a recent interview about her long journey under the knife. She referred to her boob jobs as the “biggest mistake” of her life.
Danielle, 57, underwent her fifth breast surgery on October 25 to remove her implants. “I regret getting them in the first place, 100 percent. The biggest mistake I’ve ever made in my life,” Danielle, 57, told People. “Nobody wants to look that way anymore. I haven’t wanted it for decades.”
She continued, “Mentally, I felt like I was trapped. I didn’t have a choice. I had to heal and couldn’t change it right away. And I hated them; hated the way they looked, hated the way people looked at me with them. I feel so relieved to have them out and to enter this new chapter of my life.”
The RHONJ star has had four boob jobs since 1992. Her second and third surgeries were back to back because one of her implants popped and she got a staph infection. Danielle’s fourth surgery was right before season 2 of the Bravo series began filming in 2009.
Her last surgery, she revealed, caused many health problems. “I had asked for a C when I went down, and I woke up with a DD,” Danielle said. “And nothing felt right. My breasts, they immediately felt cold and numb. I literally had no body temperature on my chest for years. They felt impacted, I felt ripples underneath them. And my skin was so thin around my breasts, you could see through it.”
“I was under much scrutiny on RHONJ at the time and it was a very embarrassing for me because everyone was saying things about my body and my boobs,” the RHONJ star added. “I felt shame and ridicule. It was vicious and cruel, to make fun of another woman and body shame her like that.”
