Danielle Staub, the star of the reality television series 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey', is set to leave the show, reports the Associated Press. 'Bravo' announced on Monday that Staub will not be returning for the next season of the show, with a spokesman stating, "The reunion was Danielle's last appearance on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. We thought the hugs were a great way to end two seasons of bitterness between the women." Despite seemingly making amends during the recent reunion episode, the show has often focused on Staub's fractured relationships with much of the cast, particularly CAROLINE MANZO, her sister-in-law JACQUELINE LAURITA, and TERESA GIUDICE.
It may not be long before Staub is back on screens however - when asked by Life & Style Magazine about the new series of 'Real Housewives', the forty-eight year old said, "I don't know if there are talks right now about a third season of the show, but I'm more excited about talks of my spin-off than anything else".
Her former co-star TERESA GIUDICE has also been the subject of much controversy this week after it was alleged she hid $250,000 in assets when she and her husband filed for bankruptcy in October 2009.
