Last night's episode was supposed to highlight Danielle's controversial past, but, after she took a stance against another cast member's husband for making a gay slur, she redeemed herself, demonstrating that one's present, not past, defines who they are.

Teresa's husband Joe decided that he wanted to take a dancing lesson, after getting into Dancing with the Stars. So Teresa organized a night out for everyone. During the evening, Joe made several gay slurs about the dance instructor, and Danielle called him out on it, later saying, "If you wanna do that thing that Italian guys do out here in Jersey, do it, but I'm taking offense by it."
