How’s this for an epic throwback!? Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub took to Instagram to reminisce about her days as a soap actress on All My Children with a very young looking Josh Duhamel for a fun throwback Thursday.
She wrote, “#tB @abcnetwork myself in a scene w longtime friends #waltwillie & @joshduhamel filming #allMyChildren in the early 2000’s @bravoandy used this scene bragging about me being one of his #OG’s #rhonj (so flattered) when josh appeared as a guest on #WWHL @bravotv”
The pic is from a 2001 episode where Danielle played a sexy Italian woman chatting it up with Josh’s character Leo du Pres (he starred on the former ABC soap for three years) while on a date with Jackson Montgomery (played by Walt Willey).
Danielle is no stranger to Hollywood. She and fellow soap alum Kelly Ripa go way back apparently. Danielle revealed her friendship with the Stratford born talk show host back in June in another epic throwback Instagram photo.
Danielle wrote, “#funfact @kellyripa and I were very close friends she would come to my house every weekend our kids went to school together #appleMontessori …where did time go.”
One photo that is definitely not a throwback (or mirage) is this one of her and Teresa Giudice.
The one-time RHONJ enemies have recently rekindled their friendship after bonding over yoga in October.
Could this spark Danielle’s return to television!? Andy Cohen, we’re hoping for an answer in the New Year!
