Marty Caffrey, the ex of Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Danielle Staub, has spoken out in defense of his controversial ex, a week after she was seen by millions, dragging costar Margaret Josephs' ponytail.

"I laugh at all these stories about Margaret [Josephs] suing Danielle," Caffrey, Danielle's ex-husband, told Radar Online.

"I know she has threatened that before. It's another example of Margaret using Danielle to get attention when she can't get any by herself. Margaret should be worried about her career with the franchise if she ever stops talking about Danielle Staub," he told them.

The fight between Margaret and Danielle was shocking, and Margaret was even more upset when Teresa Giudice left the venue with Danielle. But as Teresa told her, Margaret assaulted Danielle first by throwing a glass of water over her head.

"The after show is a good example of how the 'full time' cast members constantly need to attack Danielle, a 'friend,' without her there to stand up for herself," Marty said. "Danielle has no platform. They get to spew whatever bulls**t they want and go unchecked. What 'friend' across all the franchises is the main focus of the season?"

Last week, Danielle revealed live on air that she is leaving the show for good and will never be making a return to RHONJ. Although, she says she's open to joining another franchise.
