Real Housewives of New Jersey Cast Info: Danielle Staub Fired?
Has the Real Housewives of New Jersey's Favorite Villain Really Been Fired?
After causing an explosion from Teresa Giudice on the reunion show, everyones' favorite villain Danielle Staub claims she left the Real Housewives of New Jersey, but the Bravo show are not confirming the same news.
Andy Cohen from Bravo released a statement on Monday saying that the reunion show was Danielle's last show and the network thought that "the hugs were a great way to end two seasons of bitterness between the women."

Danielle spoke to US Magazine on Tuesday and said she walked away from the show because she was used by the network.
"I'm way too good for this," Staub, 48, tells Us. "They have used me about as much as I can be used."
So what are her plans now?
Danielle says she wants a spin-off show where she can "be me" and "not me according to other people."
A spin-off, she says, would allow "my kids [Christine, 16, and Jillian, 12] to be seen for the wonderful children that they are. I want to be shown as a mother, an artist, a supporter of my charities and the foundations that I'm passionate about. I want to use my platform to speak about the things that I love in my life."
She wants to continue the search for her birth mother as part of a storyline for the proposed show.
She said her time on the Real Housewives was full of attacks and other clashes with the other housewives.
"I mean, what's left for [the other castmates]? To kill me? Bravo seems to be glorifying their behavior. And I think it's almost like telling children to behave poorly at school, 'It's OK.'"
