T.V. personality Danielle Staub engaged for the 21st time

Less than two weeks after her divorce from Marty Caffrey, Danielle Staub has announced that she is engaged to the Duke of Provence, Oliver Maier, and plans to get married on Monday.

This will be the 21st time the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has been engaged. She and Caffrey filed for divorce just four months after getting married, following a series of arguments which resulted in temporary restraining orders.

Staub and Maier met less than six months ago when Maier was dating a friend of Staub’s. The 56-year-old star said she initially “couldn’t stand him”, but that they fell in love over time. Their friendship blossomed into romance towards the start of February 2019.

Their engagement happened so quickly that they haven’t yet had time to buy an engagement ring. According to Staub’s Instagram, the pair are currently celebrating their engagement on vacation at St. Barth’s. They plan on living between New York and Paris.

Following their marriage, Staub will claim the title of Duchess of Provence.
