Danielle Staub Leaving ‘Real Housewives Of New Jersey’ – But Why?

September 7, 2010

Danielle Staub is leavingReal Housewives Of New Jersey’ after a tumultuous season, but many wonder whether her departure is by choice. Get the story here, and see related photos and video.

For some reason all I can picture is her wide-eyed expression as she yells to Theresa ‘that’s a f***** nuff.’ To me, that about sums up the end to her run on the Bravo reality series. It is enough…but was she actually forced out?

Many have speculated that the other ladies are tired of being made to film with her, and may have told the network that they will no longer participate if Danielle remains on the show. As a result, they say, she was given the six-inch stiletto boot.

Bravo has not provided an official reason for her departure. Andy Cohen, who hosts the reunion shows, and happens to be senior vice president of original programming confirmed Danielle Staub’s exodus, but stopped short of giving the reason:

“The reunion was Danielle’s last appearance on “The Real Housewives on New Jersey…We thought the hugs were a great way to end two seasons of bitterness between the women.”

I must say, the show may be boring without her. As hard as it was to listen to her bizarre diatribes, it kept me glued to the couch with Cheeto crumbs all over my shirt. It would be like watching Jersey Shore with no Snooki—I think the show needs her.

Her fans (are they any?) can rest assured that it may not be the end of her TV career. Sources say that she is gunning for her own spin-off reality series a la Bethenney Frankel. Would you tune in for that?

    I, for one, will not watch Housewives without Danielle. I loved watching how the other cast members tried to put her down and keep her down but they couldn’t do it. I live in the area where all of them live and I can tell you that those housewives have nothing better to do than be catty and nasty to each other and to everyday people they meet on the street. Kim G. is a monster. She treats everyone that is not on her “social level” like they are her personal slaves. What the Housewives of NJ should do is come down off of your thrones and stop letting your men do all the work. Get a hobby or, better yet, try charity work. get your hands dirty and start being real people and not those overdone, stuffed, parodies of human beings that all of you, except Danielle, has become.

    One more thing about Andy Cohen. You are as mean and nasty as the witches are. Now that I know that you are VP of original programming, I’ll keep my eyes out for any show bearing your name and I will NOT be watching. I am also disgusted about your rate a soccer player segments during the World Cup. You painted yourself as just another vapid, looks-obsessed gay man that is more concerned about “sizes” than you are about substance. Please do gay folks everywhere a great big favor….step back into the closet. You are a train wreck waiting to happen.

    I think it is probably the best thing for her. Of course she made some poor choices and personal poor decisions but she took some responsibility. I think it was way too much drama and it is unfortunate that the catty and unprofessional behavior displayed by Teresa and Kim G. and Jacqueline’s daughters were mimimized. They all need to grow up.

    It was always hilarious to see Teresa make such a fool of herself. I hope her girls turn out better than their mother. Hopefuly someone will teach them some real values and not how to just spend money til your husband’s been ground down. The high points of this show would be to see how many twisted versions of any given situation would be told. Jaqueline seems to be the only one capable of truths, and gets put under thumb when “the matriarch” needs her quiet. And there’s got to be an Emmy next year for Caroline! She should take up being an acting coach with all that “big fat amazing Italian Godmutha” sweat she put into everything.
    Love and Light to ya…Love and Light. I won’t miss them or the show. If Danielle’s leaving they won’t have any drama to create…maybe take up fist pumping?

    I don’t know who the heck this lady is, but she is wearing a G-Shock watch, and that makes her cool in my book!
