Cop Without A Badge

The drama of the Real Housewives of New Jersey continues even though the first season has “ended.”  Dina Manzo spoke to US about the infamous book drama, claiming she had no intention of talking about the book on the show. Umm right Dina. The infamous book is the “Cop Without A Badge” book written by Danielle’s ex husband, Kevin Maher.

Dina says, “I would like to make it perfectly clear that we did not research the book, as my sister [Caroline Manzo] has said,” she continued. “It was given to us, and we didn’t even want it as a storyline on the show at all. We felt it was a little too serious to be part of a lighthearted reality show.”

“But Danielle chose to put it on the show for whatever reasons, and we need to respect that,” continues Dina. “It’s a book about her, and we did not research, nor did we spread it around. It was all Danielle’s doing.”

Teresa adds, “Watch the episode. Danielle brought [the book] to the show, not us.”

Not sure if I believe any word that comes out of Dina’s mouth at this point, especially after last night’s episode. She continues to deny spreading the book around town.

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.
