Danielle Staub’s past unraveling in front of the public eye apparently means big business for her ex husband, Kevin Maher. The book he helped write about his and Danielle’s past, Cop Without A Badge, has now gone back into print. It is due out July 10th for all those wishing to their hands on this very significant piece of history.

Below are some more interesting excerpts from the book about Danielle/Beverly Merrill courtesy of Starcasm -

The book’s description of Beverly / Danielle’s involvement with the kidnapping:

”Some rich kids kept saying he didn’t have the money. But the DD knew the father was some rick old f**k, so the DD [dealer] grabbed the kid. Beat the s**t out of him for three days. Didn’t feed him. Kept telling the kid that if his father didn’t send money, he was going to kill them . . .

‘She was there man’, Uribe said with a sigh. ‘She was there through the whole f**king thing. She was partying with the DD for a month straight.”

What Kevin Maher thinks after meeting the pantiless Beverly/Danielle in Miami:

“She’s beautiful. I hope she’s not just another coke whore.”

After a couple lines of coke and romp in the sack Kevin has a startling revelation about Beverly/Danielle:

“She has no morals, but she’s a good person.”

Coke-fuelled insights don’t lie and within hours Maher is “in love,” forgetting completely that at that time he is still married to a woman named Beth. How Maher got Beverly / Danielle off with probation instead of prison for her kidnapping charges:

“Maher . . . bent the truth about one of the dealers.”

Real Housewives Danielle Staub

Danielle Staub’s ex and author of “Cop Without A Badge,” Kevin Maher continues to speak out about his ex wife. Kevin gave another interview to Star, stating her life is in danger.

The reason being? “She helped put a couple of big-time Colombian coke dealers in jail,” says Kevin. “These are dangerous men who never forget…and they could be back out on the street now. It’s mind-boggling to me that she’d put herself at risk!”

Kevin continues “I can’t believe Danielle would have allowed herself to go on TV — on a series that basically shows where she lives! — given what she has done in the past.” How sweet of Kevin for caring so much for Danielle’s safety.

In other NJ Housewives’s news, Jacqueline Laurita gave a new interview to Life & Style magazine and spoke out against Danielle once again -

“I don’t think it was something as simple as giving a phone number out, but leave it to Danielle to try to downplay her whole dirty deed. She’s an angry, bitter person. She felt Dina rejected her, so she went out to destroy her!

All of the housewives excluding Danielle also appeared this morning on the Regis and Kelly show. Danielle was not with them because the housewives felt it would be uncomfortable. Also when pressed about what Danielle did to Dina, they all refused to say exactly what it was. Below is a picture of them leaving the studio -

Seems like Danielle Staub failed to come completely clean on her past during the finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Danielle only admitted to being arrested, changing her name, and being a past stripper. What she failed to admit was that she also used to be a prostitute/high paid escort.

The Gawker got their hands on the court documents involving Danielle’s 1986 arrest, and it definitely sheds more light on her past.

The documents revealed the following -

1)  In 1986, Staub went by the name Beverly Merrill, but her working name as a high-end prostitute was “Angela Minelli.” She was living in Miami, and one of her clients was Daniel Claudio Aguilar, a cocaine dealer for the Medellín cartel.

2)  Danielle wasn’t in the wrong place at the wrong time as she claimed. She was heavily involved with the kidnapping which came as a result of a cocaine deal gone wrong, which Danielle also had a big part in. Danielle’s job was to help test the cocaine that was being sold for $48,000.

3) During the kidnapping, Danielle helped make phone calls to the victim’s family demanding a ransom.

4) Danielle was picked up/arrested with six kilos of cocaine and $16,000 in cash.

5) After her arrest, Danielle turned on her boyfriend/kidnapper known as Aguilar, and helped in convicting him.

6) During the trial, Aguilar’s lawyers tried to undermine Danielle’s credibility by repeatedly pointing out that she was a prostitute who worked for an escort service and coke addict.

7) Danielle’s ex husband and author of the Book – Cop Without A Badge, Kevin Maher, has critized her for appearing on reality citing the fact that Aguilar might want to carry out his revenge on her. Aguilar was released from prison in 1994.

I guess being a past prostitute/escort isn’t something anyone would want to admit to, but why go on a reality show knowing you have all these skeletons in your closet? If you are going to come clean, you might as well come all the way clean.

In other news, the big rumor that refuses to go away is that Dina’s husband, Tommy Manzo, has left her and moved in with a younger girlfriend. Sources say Tommy is living with his girlfriend in an apartment close to the Brownstone where he works at. I guess time will tell whether or not Dina is truly separated from her husband.

We were able to get our hands on a news article published in Miami Herald newspaper on June 24, 1986. This article talks about the kidnapping incident involving New Jersey HousewivesDanielle Staub.

Her mugshot can be seen here.

Below is the full article with the part about Danielle highlighted. Special thanks to our reader Marie for sending this to us.

“A man held for $25,000 ransom in June was arrested Thursday on federal narcotics charges involving one of his alleged abductors, the FBI said.

Carmen Christopher Centolella, 27, of Hobe Sound, surrendered without incident Jupiter based on a two-count indictment returned Aug. 28 by a federal grand jury in Miami.

One of Centolella’s alleged captors, Daniel Claudio Aguilar, 23, of 3132 NW 74th St., was also charged in the same indictment. Aguilar is being held in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Southwest Dade while he awaits trial on an extortion charge stemming from Centolella’s alleged abduction.

Aguilar and Centolella were charged with conspiracy to possess and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.

“The indictment alleges he was involved with Aguilar prior to the kidnapping,” said FBI spokesman Paul Miller.

Centolella was rescued by a SWAT team on June 23 after authorities said he was abducted two days earlier in an apparent dispute over a debt he owed Aguilar and two others holding him.

The two other people allegedly involved in the ransom attempt were Rogers Jones Jr., 22, of 2325 NW 59th St. and Beverly Ann Merrill, 23, 2629 S. Bayshore Dr.

All three were charged with extortion for making interstate ransom calls to Centolella’s father in Utica, N.Y. Thomas Centolella, retired manager of a Utica shoe store, reported the crime.

It was not clear at the time if the transaction was narcotics-related, but the FBI found explosives, 10 kilos of cocaine and scales in the kitchen at 8265 SW 45th St., where Centolella had been held. The house was rented by Aguilar.

Centolella was questioned and released following the June incident.”

A lot of information has come out recently about NJ Housewives’ Danielle Staub. People gave a great summary of all allegations about Danielle from the book, Cop Without A Badge. The above mugshot also came from the book. All of the information below comes directly from this book. The story is told by Kevin Maher, an ex criminal who also happens to be Danielle’s ex.

1) The book reveals Danielle, 46, as a woman named Beverly Merrill, a one-time stripper with a criminal past.

2) Felon-turned-FBI informant named, Kevin Maher, says he met Danielle at a drug party in Miami in the ’80s.

3) Their meeting came after she was released on $10,000 bail following an arrest on charges that she was involved in the kidnapping of a man who owed her drug dealer friend money.

4) This led to Danielle and her dealer friend being caught by police and charged with extortion, kidnapping and possession after they failed to collect a ransom from their victim’s father.

5) Kevin Maher used his police connections to help get Danielle get a deal. She pleaded guilty only to the charge of extortion and was sentenced to five years probation.

6) Kevin and Danielle would go on to date and get married. The two would wound up separating as Kevin was still married to another woman, and did not like the fact that Danielle was still stripping.

7) Danielle’s real name is Beverly Merrill, but she went by the name Danielle when stripping. I’m guessing she later decided her stripper name was best once this book came out.

The book also exposes more secrets about Danielle’s aversion to wearing underwear, her drug use and sleeping with more than 1,000 men.

The book also includes more sensational reports about Merrill’s aversion to wearing underwear, her drug use and sleeping with more than 1,000 men.

Sighs, what are my thoughts on Danielle? I think Bethenny Frankel summed it up best when she blogged, “Danielle is the fascinating character with her many levels. She seems desperate and tragic, yet she is really upfront and honest which lessens the desire to loathe her.”

We have finally gotten our hands of the infamous mugshot of Danielle Staub. This comes directly from the book, Cop Without A Badge. Also shown below are 2 pages containing Danielle aka Beverly Merrill’s story.

The Cop Without A Badge book is suppose to be an autobiographical tale of Kevin Maher, a former criminal turned Cop informant.

The gist of the story is that the main character in the book, Kevin, encounters Danielle and takes interest in her. Only to find out she is a stripper with a recent arrest and run in with the law. The run in with the law includes assisting a drug dealer in kidnapping and extortion. All of this allegedly took place in 1986. Interesting.

Kevin would go on to help Danielle get a good plea deal with the FBI. The two ended up dating on and off for 5 years eventually ending things in 1990. During this period Danielle and Kevin got married, but the marriage wasn’t exactly legal as Kevin was still married at the time. Kevin went on to state he last saw Danielle stripping in 1992.
