DANCING COUGAR ALERT! Danielle Staub Edition

We’re used to seeing the tough, defensive side of Danielle Staub from The Real Housewives of New Jersey. However, even cougars who’ve been terrorized through country clubs need to have a little fun, and Danielle let loose on last night’s Watch What Happens Live! The mom / Public Manzo Enemy #1 emerged from the witness protection program long enough to do a little dance for Andy, but sadly, she refrained from actually getting up on a nearby coffee table, lest it break under her weight — clearly the result of a murderous Manzo-planted booby trap.

Fun, strange times nonetheless.

Thanks to reader LynnB for the heads up.
