Days after making headlines for signing a deal to become a stripper at age 48, former Real Housewives of New Jersey starDanielle Staub is now stating she has decided to walk away from the deal; while also seeking treatment for psychological problems stemming from sexual abuse. She also reveals she has dealt with suicidal thoughts.
“I have addictions with love and low self-esteem, and I need help!” Danielle told PEOPLE after nude photos of her stripping at Scores in New York appeared online.
“My low self-esteem derived from childhood sexual abuse has messed with my mind and self-worth, and over the years I thought about getting help but pushed it deep into the depths of denial,” says Danielle. “For years I have had the suicide hotline on my cell phone and would like nothing more than to free myself from this constant pressure.”
Danielle adds that she has decided to finally get help because she went too far this time around. The sex tape wasn’t going too far? “Seeing how I have hurt myself and my family this time, I can no longer push it behind me.”
She goes on to add that she is getting help from Dr. Drew Pinsky and claims she was “coaxed” by her handlers into signing the deal. She however states she accepts responsibility for her actions. “I have to own my mistakes and can’t blame others.”
Being that this is Danielle after all, it’s a bit hard to determine if this is legit or just a publicity stunt. But for the sake of her daughters, here’s to hoping it is the real deal and she is indeed seeking the help she badly needs.
It seems Real Housewives of NYCstar Susan SaundersJill Zarin just can’t help herself. First came Amazon-gate last year in which she was caught red-handed leaving positive reviews for her book on Amazon.com while also threatening people who left her negative reviews. And then two months later, UsWeekly reported she hired 4 media consultants to help her prep for the season 3 reunion show. Well folks, the Jillousy is back at it again!
A new report by Gawker sheds some light on Jill’s new MO, which is allegedly having others – likely hired PR interns – spam numerous blogs and sites with extremely positive comments about her.
The issue first came to light on May 1st when the TvOnTheRocks blog detected some suspicious comments about Jill from stories that were over a year old. One of the comments is below –
“Why do people say I hate Jill Zarin? Just because it’s called “reality” TV doesn’t make it an accurate portrayal of who a person really is. Do your research, Jill is a good person who does more than just appear on RHONY…she also does a lot of charity work and has a great new line of Shape wear called Skweez Couture to help us all look hot! Thank you Jill!”
As you can see, the comment is not only grossly transparent but even includes a link to Jill’s official blog under the words ‘I hate Jill Zarin.’ The reason for this? There is an actual blog on the internet titled ‘I hate Jill Zarin.’ The intention of Jill and her likely PR flunkies is that by manipulating the links, people searching online for I hate Jill Zarin would be taken to Jill’s official blog rather than the original I hate Jill Zarin blog. While also promoting her Skweez Couture line of course.
Low and behold, Reality Tea also received similar spam comments days later. Below are the three comments posted on our blog under stories about Jill –
“murphygirl on 2011/05/06 at 3:44 pm She’s pretty and smart. People should stop with all the IHate Jill Zarin stuff. She looks great and she’s using what she has to be the best reality star she can be! Jill Rules!”
“bonnie on 2011/05/06 at 4:30 pm I agree with you, Im on Jill’s side for sure. She is the sweetest onr on the show, and by far my favorite of the housewives! I dont understand why anyone would say I hate Jill Zarin”
“Erica on 2011/05/13 at 2:22 pm I have to agree with Jill, people do have a short attention span and I hope so, she deserves a new spin this season. But it’s the show, the editing and they have created all this I hate Jill Zarin buzz. The real person Jill Zarin is active in the community and gives her time to charity work. But that’s reality tv for you.”
And now back to the Gawker story which also pointed out that some hired PR flunkies superfans of Jill or even Jill herself have been bombarding the NYmag.com Vulture comments section with suspiciously pro-Jill propaganda. We do have to warn you ahead of time as some of these comments might induce nausea. Examples of the comments left by the “superfans” are – “Too many people love Jill Zarin. She is the best of all housewives. We LOVE her!!… Jill has a star quality that makes the show great… Jill Zarin is the heart and soul of Real Housewives of NYC.”
Similar to Bravo Gossip, we believe Jill likely hired a PR firm or a bunch of PR interns to help repair her tainted image. Thus explaining all the extreme Team Jill comments. Why you ask? Well folks, the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) manipulation attempts leads us to believe this isn’t the work of your average superfans but definitely a group of people knowledgeable in the SEO field aka a PR company! But then again it could just be Jill herself doing her own dirty work as she’s definitely not above that.
This would also explain the whole polling fiasco that took place last month on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. Jill was on the show with Ramona Singer immediately following the season 4 premiere of the RHONY, and Andy Cohen ran a whose side are you on poll question. Jill lost in a landslide after receiving only 22% of the votes. Three days later, Andy stated on the air that the original poll was erroneous and that Jill got 41% of the votes. Many found the recant to be odd, that is until the NY Post reported Jill was the one who demanded a recount right after the show ended, and even threatened to get her lawyers involved.
However, it was Jill’s comment to the Post that raised a red flag with us. She stated, “My initial reaction was surprise… That night, we said, ‘We don’t think these numbers are right.’ ” We questioned back then how Jill, who was very disliked last season by fans, could be so certain the polling numbers were wrong if she hadn’t done something to try to manipulate it? Well, based on the above, it seems we finally have our answer! Plus a similar poll by the HollywoodLife blog only gave Jill 19% of the votes while a poll we ran only gave her 10%. Safe to say those PR flunkies can’t get to all the polls.

On Tuesday, TMZ broke the story that Kelsey, 56, filed court papers in L.A. County Superior Court, requesting primary physical custody of his two kids with Camille – Mason, 9, and Jude, 6. If you recall, Kelsey dumped Camille, 42, last summer for flight attendant Kayte Walsh, 29, whom he was allegedly having an affair with. Kelsey and Camille’s divorce was then finalized in February and Kelsey married Kayte in the same month.
According to sources, Kelsey and Camille have been at war over the kids who have been experiencing some emotional difficulty in dealing with their parents’ divorce.
Sources close to Camille are however scoffing at Kelsey’s filing, as they state she’s been a full-time mother with 4 nannies while he has been uncooperative in trying to work out a custody agreement. They add that she was willing to give him 50/50 custody, but now all bets are off.
Camille gave a brief statement to RadarOnline, simply stating that “Kelsey is being insensitive to our children.” Camille’s employee friend, Allison DuBoisalso spoke to Radar. “Camille is an excellent mother, and Kesley truly doesn’t have a leg to stand on,” said Allison. “Good luck with that battle Kelsey, you are going to need it.” And in case you’re wondering, yes Allison is the psychic from the infamous dinner from hell episode.
Another employee close friend of Camille’s spoke to PEOPLE stating she is ready to fight for her kids. “She will fight like hell to keep her children with her, being raised by her, exactly where the children wish to be,” the close friend said before going on to bash Kelsey. “He abandoned his family and got married within months of separating from Camille, all of which speaks volumes about his parenting and his respect for his current children.”
As for Kelsey, he refused to give a statement with his rep stating, “Any statement would be inappropriate. The filing speaks for itself.”

Dustin Zito is now speaking out weeks after his roommates on the Real World discovered his shocking gay porn past on the show. In a new interview, he opens up some more about his porn past, why he did it, and why he’d do it all over again.
When asked why he failed to tell his roommates, including girlfriend Heather Marter, about his past, Dustin states he simply never thought his secret would get out the way it did. “[The site was] going to take care of me. And I was like ‘This is a small website. It doesn’t even end in dot-com,'” the intelligent Dustin, 25, tells UsWeekly.
Dustin once again claims he went into porn because he had nothing else to do in his small hometown. “All my friends had gone to college, but I couldn’t afford it, and I couldn’t find a cool job,” the Rayne, La. native says. “Fratmen called me with this offer. I was paid, and they also paid for my flight, my meals, my clothes…I was like ‘All you want me to do is get naked and be in this video? Jesus, this sounds too good to be true, ” adds the smart Dustin.
He also reveals that what started with simple masturbation scenes eventually progressed into “softcore” oral sex. He says he wasn’t worried in the beginning because “the site doesn’t make you look sleazy. It’s sort of classy. The videos are shot cinematically.” Though Dustin attempts to downplay his gay porn past as just engaging in oral sex, there were pictures of him floating on the internet showing he did way more than that, as in he went all the way with his porn costars.
And today Dustin, who admits his family was unaware about his past, makes it clear he has no regrets about what he did. “People think I was manipulated? People are crazy! I made my own decisions. If I could go back, I probably would have done the same thing,” says Dustin.
Moving right along. A new episode of the Real World: Las Vegas airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c. On the 11th episode this season, the roommates take a vacation to Cancun, but there’s trouble in paradise when tensions between Dustin and Mike-Mike come to a head.
Joining Ralph, 49, in the bottom two was Kirstie Alley who was then declared safe. “I will never forget how the fans have driven us through every week,” said the Karate Kid actor following his elimination. “It inspired me. I would run here every Monday for us to present what we worked on.”
Ralph then went on to thank his pro partner Karina Smirnoff. “Karina, you have inspired me in so many ways with your heart, your talent, your class, your integrity as an artist, and even more so as a human being,” he said. “I am proud to have been your dance partner and even more proud to be your friend.”
With Ralph’s elimination, Chelsea Kane, Kirstie, and Hines Ward move on to next week’s finals on Monday! This season’s winner will then be crowned on Tuesday.
TMZ is reporting today that Danielle, former star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, has once again become a fully nude stripper. If you recall, Danielle’s stripper past came out on the show two years ago after her castmates uncovered her past via a book written by her ex-husband Kevin Maher.
Fast forward to today and the 48-year-old mother of two recently signed a 3-year deal with the Scores Gentleman’s Club in New York. Danielle has agreed to do one live appearance and occasionally appear on ScoresLive.com.
To mark her special accomplishment, Danielle even released some new photos of herself stripping to TMZ. Some of those racy pics are below. We find it quite sad that Danielle, who claims to love her daughters very much, refuses to consider what impact her actions are having on them.
