Danielle Staub Reportedly Fired From ‘Housewives’ (UPDATE)

UPDATE: Danielle releases a statement to Celebuzz about the firing rumors and her future plans:

Actually, I’m not even thinking about season 3 right now as I am considering many incredible options that have been presented to me. Right now I just want to let fans know that we have a fantastic finale coming up next week and explosive reunion shows on August 30 and September 6. Don’t worry next year, I’ll still be the one you either love to hate or hate to love

Real Housewives of New Jersey’s resident pot-stirrer Danielle Staub may have been fired from the hit reality show.

According to Life & Style magazine, Danielle has not been asked to return to the Bravo show:

Danielle was told that she would not be returning for a third season. [The news] came as a complete shock, and she thought she was definitely going to return to the successful Bravo series.

The New Jersey mom became the subject of national attention when she first appeared on RHONJ. During the first season Danielle propositioned a date to have sex in a restaurant bathroom while being filmed and was infamously called a “prostitution w•••e” by co-star Teresa Giudice during a heated argument.

Danielle continued to attract drama in the second season of the wildly popular show. Danielle was attacked by co-star Jacqueline Laurita’s teenage daughter after a fashion show and was the reason behind co-star Dina Manzo’s departure from the show.

A sex tape featuring Danielle and an anonymous male was released earlier this year. Danielle’s co-stars claimed that she had released the tape herself although she never confirmed that she had.

In recent months, Danielle had been hinting about a possible spin-off that would focus solely on her life. The Jersey girl told Life and Style that she was “excited” about a possible spin-off more than continuing on RHONJ for another season.
