Danielle Staub announced that she will be leaving The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Most fans were not disappointed at the news of Staub’s departure as at times Staub brings a mod mentality to the show.
With season 10 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey off to a great start as Staub is poised to make her return to stir up more drama. The housewives are already showing their colors in regard to making new friends and fighting with old ones. While Staub confirms she is in a good place and working towards her real estate license fans are a bit on edge, wondering what the housewife has in store for the Garden State. In the latest episode, the ex-stripper blindsided her castmates by pulling Margaret Josephs’ hair, causing her to have whiplash. The sneaky brunette has Teresa Giudice on her side and feels as though nothing can stop her from her.
Staub took to Andy Cohen’s clubhouse to announce to fans of the franchise that she would no longer participate in The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The 57-year-old told Cohen on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that she would never return to the reality show again. On January 8th the Bravo villain said that she had been a part of the show for over 12 years but now it was time to make her exit. The mother of two commented that she would like to find a hobby that makes her heart full every day.
Fans were curious if her departure had anything to do with the recent assault on Josephs. Cohen was surprised by Staub’s decisions as he did not expect that she would want to leave the platform. Staub was originally a full-time cast member for season and 2 but left the show after her fight with Giudice. Staub had only returned to a friend role for the last three seasons. Since returning in her minor role, Staub and Giudice have been each other’s conscience, with both of them sticking up for one another, even when they were wrong. During the January 1st episode, Giudice told the group of women that they do not fully know who Staub is and they should not be so quick to judge her. Most of the women disagree with Giudice’s opinion as they have seen firsthand what Staub is capable of.
Though there is still more to come in season 10, fans are not convinced that the two bosom buddies’ will see their friendship through to the end. Staub has always been known to manipulate those close to her and with Giudice being in a vulnerable state, issues are bound to occur, leaving the door open for another table turner incident possibly between the two.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Wednesdays at 8pm EST on Bravo.
