Danielle Staub got, well, real, when she stopped by to chat with Andy Cohen on Sunday's Watch What Happens Live.

Not surprising, one of the hot topics of conversation was about the legal troubles Staub's former Real Housewives of New Jersey costars, Teresa and Joe Giudice, are dealing with at the moment.

"I feel bad for them. They're people," Staub said. "They're a family and things that are very bad are happening to them, so it would be really wrong of anyone to enjoy that."

Later on the program, Staub also felt the need to address another issue that has apparently been bothering her since she departed RHONJ back in 2010.

"I wanted to ask you, Andy, why you said that I was fired when I left the show after season two?" Staub asked Cohen.

To which the baffled host replied, "I don't recall saying you were fired, because I think it was a mutual decision."

"Well, I think it was easier for you to say that I was fired, so you did put that out there. It was announced to the press and it's still out there."

Cohen quickly apologized, something Staub clearly appreciated.

"Thank you," she said. "It means a lot to me."
