Danielle Staub filed for a temporary restraining order against her husband Marty Caffrey after an incident at her home late Sunday night.
According to the order obtained by Page Six, Staub said she arrived at the home and found that Caffrey disengaged their garage door so it wouldn’t open. When the other two doors opened, “she found her husband standing in her garage. He appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, agitated and confrontational.”
She claimed that she wanted to avoid fighting with him, so she went straight to her bedroom. But “after hearing a disturbing noise in another area of the residence she walked downstairs and found [Caffrey]. Then she realized that several of her family portraits of her children and other sentimental framed photographs had been taken down causing her to be upset.”
We’re told that Caffrey called the police as Staub, 56, went through the house to search for the photos, but when officers arrived Staub was the one to get the order as she “believes that [Caffrey] is attempting to tarnish her reputation and career by making repeated false reports to the media,” per the filing.
The order says that Caffrey, 66, was given 20 minutes by the police to gather his belongings at the scene.
Now, Caffrey must stay away and refrain from contact with Staub and her two daughters and he is barred from NBC Studios at 30 Rockefeller Plaza and Monmouth University in New Jersey. Staub has exclusive possession of the home.
The order is valid until they are due in court on August 20.
Page Six reported earlier Monday that Staub has retained legal counsel to move forward with divorce proceedings.
The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star married Caffrey in a Bimini beach ceremony in May. Their marriage “difficulties” became public last month, with Caffrey releasing a statement to the media regarding his grievances with her.
