The Real Housewives of NJ’s Danielle Staub is finally breaking her silence on her criminal past. You know, the one that includes drugs, stripping, prostitution, kidnapping, Colombian cartels and a mugshot to boot of course. (The above photo is of Danielle and a very pregnant Teresa taken this week as they leave a NY studio, interesting.)

Danielle appeared on the Today show this morning along with the other NJ housewives – Caroline and Dina Manzo, and a pregnant Teresa Giudice. When asked about her past, Danielle claimed everything would be cleared up in time.

“I can only touch on [the rumors],” Danielle, 46, said on the show. “I can just say, it’s out there and it will be addressed. And I will definitely touch on all the subjects that are crucially in need of touching on at the time when the time is right.” She continued, “Everybody has someone in their past or present that would like to say embellished, nasty things about them.”

Umm okay then Danielle. It’s a simple yes or no as to whether or not you were a prostitute/stripper/kidnapper. Jacqueline was not able to make an appearance on the show due to her pregnancy, as she is due any day now.

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.”

While the new season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County is scheduled to begin filming next week, one familiar housewife that won’t be returning is original cast member, Jeana Keough. The decision to not have Jeana return seemed to be that of Bravo, and not Jeana.

Tamra Barney gave an interview earlier this week to Radaronline teasing that one of the original housewives would not be returning. While Tamra did not confirm who it was, TheDirty website did confirm yesterday that Jeana Keough is the one leaving.

Tamra also says there might be a new housewife or two added to the show. I can’t help but get the feeling the show will be a-okay as long as Gretchen is still on there, and Tamra continues her pathetic mission to “expose her.” I will however miss Jeana on the show, she was a likable character. No word yet on if Lynn will be returning, does the show really need her?

Tell Us: What do you think of Bravo’s decision not to bring Jeana back?

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.

Last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of NJ as a pretty good one, but it is the previews for next week’s episode that has everyone buzzing. As it promises to reveal secrets about Danielle Staub’s past.

The accusations being thrown out about Danielle include her being an ex stripper, being involved in kidnapping and the Colombian cartel. While the accusations were being leveled against her, the above book – Cop Without A Badge, was shown, as it was discussed that Danielle was in the book along with her mugshot. (The above pic is a picture of Danielle from 2000 by the way).

I have searched everywhere and this mugshot has yet to hit the Internet. I will be sure to post it here the minute I find it. The above book also only seems to be available on amazon.com. The book is about an ex criminal turned cop informant. A man name Kevin Maher is the subject of the book.

So how does Danielle tie into all this? Well it is rumored that Kevin Maher is Danielle’s brother, and that Danielle’s maiden name is Maher. So the guess is Kevin, while talking about his life of crime might have implicated his sister, Danielle, as well.

Star Magazine’s latest issue is also reporting that Danielle was arrested last night for allegedly not paying her attorneys. Supposedly, she has been unable to pay off her lawyers due to the face that her ex husband, a manufacturer of exercise equipment, has yet to pay her divorce settlement. The lawyer fees are said to be in six figures so it’s safe to say her settlement money could be in the millions. There is also suppose to be a mugshot from this incident but the cops have yet to release it.

We will continue to get more updates and details on this story. Perhaps people with too many closet skeletons should avoid reality shows. Just a thought Danielle.

Are you ready for a new Housewives franchise? Well you should be as Bravo is now casting for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Evolution Media, the same company that produces the Orange County Housewives, will be producing this series as well.

I can only imagine the Beverly Hills housewives will be like Orange County on crack. I’m picturing more botox, plastic surgeries, sugar daddies, bigger boobs hair. And speaking of bigger hair, isn’t it time Bravo branches out to Texas? How great would it be to have a Real Housewives of Dallas series? Hope the Bravo execs are listening. We want TEXAS!

More casting information is below for the Beverly Hills Franchise -

Evolution Media/Bravo is looking for outgoing, exciting, strong, focused women who reside in and around the Beverly Hills area that want to share their lives. We are looking for women who are lively and energetic, with defined opinions and views. Our featured women should have busy lives, be involved with the community, have a strong work ethic, and an active social calendar. Most importantly, they should be enjoying the good life.

Teresa-Giudice

There must be something in the New Jersey water as Teresa Giudice is the latest housewife confirmed pregnant. People is reporting The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is 6 months pregnant. Her fellow housewife, Jacqueline Laurita, is also 8 months pregnant.

According to People, a Bravo rep confirmed this exclusively. Teresa is said to be about five and a half months along, and is “excited” about expanding her family.

Teresa is also said to be unsure about the sex of her baby, and “wants to keep it a secret until she delivers.” We’re guessing she’s hoping for a boy being that she currently has 3 daughters with her “juicy and delicious” husband.
