Did ‘Real Housewife’ Danielle Staub Leak Her Sex Tape?

It looks like the Real Housewives of New Jersey sex tape drama continues to get dirtier and dirtier.

Hustler, Inc. is releasing a sex tape starring RHONJ villain Danielle Staub that was allegedly filmed last September. Now, Danielle’s co-star and former friend Jacqueline Laurita is saying that Danielle released the tape herself to gain publicity.

Jacqueline took to her Twitter on Tuesday night to break the news:

Heard from a VERY reliable source that D (Danielle) released her OWN sex tape. Heard it’s disgusting. Such disregard 4 her kids. I feel horrible 4 them.

Danielle’s camp responded by saying that Danielle “knows [the sex tape] is being released.” Hm, okay.

While we don’t know if Danielle did actually release the tape herself, the idea doesn’t seem unlikely: Danielle is notorious on the show for her outrageous behavior and troubled past. During her first season on the show, the 47-year-old Jersey girl asked a date on camera to have sex with her in a restaurant bathroom (he politely declined) and she admits that she was arrested in conjunction with a drug-fueled kidnapping when she was younger.
