New Jersey Housewives' Danielle Staub

Danielle Staub of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is now facing a lawsuit by her ex-husband, Kevin Maher.

Kevin has filed a lawsuit against Danielle on the basis of defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.  And yes, this is the same Kevin who wrote the tell all book, ‘Cop Without A Badge,’  revealing Danielle’s scandalous past as a drug user and escort.

The lawsuit is based on an interview Danielle gave PEOPLE magazine in June 2009, during which she called Kevin a rapist and a dog murderer.

Kevin– who was married to Danielle in the late 80s — told E! News, “I am filing a lawsuit against my ex-wife, Danielle Staub, stemming from her allegations that I raped her on a bed of broken glass, inserted my handgun inside her and played Russian Roulette, and last but not least, killing her dog by way of hanging it,” Maher states. “She also threatened me on the reunion show that Bravo aired.”

Kevin says he’s receieved “serious and outrageous threats” since the article was released.

Bravo announced today that The Real Housewives of New Jersey will be returning for a second season in 2010.

The first season of The NJ Housewives was one of the highest-rated “Real Housewives” series in all demos, averaging 2.55 million total viewers.

Bravo however did not announce which of the women from the first season — Danielle Staub , Dina Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo — will be back. There are have been reports that Dina has no interest in doing a 2nd season.

Also coming in 2010 is the highly anticipated The Real Housewives of D.C. The Washington D.C. franshice will be the network’s fifth Housewives franchise.

The D.C. version will focus on women who have influence in Washington culture, whether it’s through political galas, fundraisers, or other society events.

Nene+Leakes+Real+Housewives+Of+Atlanta

New Jersey Housewife Danielle Staub seems to be in good company, as Nene Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is now admitting to her past as a stripper.

“Yes, I was a stripper – let the judgments ensue…I am not ashamed” Nene announces the bombshell in her new autobiography – Never Make The Same Mistake Twice.

Nene seems to believe her stripper past has no reflection on her presence as an “Atlanta socialite,” saying, “What difference does it make if I danced or not?” she asks. “Is the sun going to stop shining? Is my past taking food out of your mouth?”

Nene proceeds to explain her reasons for stripping, “[I stripped] for the sake of my son, and to restore my confidence in myself,” she explains. “My son was in private school, his father wasn’t chipping in for ­pull-ups or food, I had no job and no money coming in, the rent was past due, and the super told me and my roommate that our condo owner was about to put us out. It was about survival.”

The ex-stripper, who referred to herself as Silk during her dancing days as a twentysomething year old – admits that she liked the power that came with being a stripper. “I could make $500 off one guy just by turning him on.” These men “were obviously there to see what I had, and I quickly realized that those men weren’t there to make me feel bad about myself.”

Interestingly, it has always been said that Nene’s husband, Gregg Leakes, met her at a strip club while she was working. Fellow castmate, Kim Zolciak was also outed has being a past stripper by her former publicist. My favorite part of this story is that she stripped to restore confidence in herself – brings out the lols.

Christine Staub

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Danielle Staub’s life has been filled with controversy following the show’s first season. On a much brighter note, her daughter Christine Staub recently signed a modeling contract with IMG Models – the same agency that represents super models including Gisele Bunchen, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss and Taylor Momsen.

Though the 15-year-old high school sophomore is taking test photos, she is expected to hit the catwalk as early as September during the New York Fashion week, according to IMG.

“She came into our offices and we were blown away!” Ivan Bart, SVP and Managing Director of IMG Models Worldwide, tells PEOPLE. “She has an amazing amount of potential as a model. If we had seen her on the street we would have signed her on the spot.”

“This is all very new to me,” Christine told The Daily . “I’ve never really done any modeling before, so I’m just learning while I have a chance and being guided by the best in the business. I’m also getting used to industry people looking at my face so closely!”

We certainly hope that her life is nothing like her mother’s past. From watching the show, she seems like a smart young lady.

We reported a police report filed by Kim Zolciak of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, alleging that fellow castmate, Nene Leakes choked her during an argument. The choking incident allegedly took place back in April.

Nene however denied the accusation yesterday while out with New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub, at the gay club Barracuda in New York.

Kim is now fighting back in a new interview with RadarOnline. “NeNe’s a liar, and I have a police report to prove it,” said Kim. “Violence is not something I support or agree with. And she says she’s an advocate against domestic violence…what, is it a how to?”

“Well I have a police report and two witnesses…so nice try,” Kim told RadarOnline. “She definitely crossed the line. It’s one thing to call me names, but it’s another to put your hands on me. It was incredibly traumatic and I didn’t sleep for three days afterwards.”

A new episode of the Atlanta housewives airs tonight. Will watch to see if the previewed fight between Nene & Sheree versus Kim can top the catfight that took place last week involving party planner, Anthony Shorter, and Miss She by Sheree.

Danielle Staub made an appearance this week on Bravo’s new weekly talk show, “Watch What Happens” hosted by Andy Cohen.

Andy wasted no time in asking The Real Housewives of New Jersey “star” about the infamous reunion incident which left Caroline Manzo in tears. Danielle claimed that just prior to the reunion show, she gave a phone number to the brother of a longtime friend … and that brother just happened to be Dina Manzo’s ex-husband. The reason being? It had something to do with contracts of the show according to Danielle.

Dina has admitted in a past interview that the tension between she and Danielle began over lawyer fees for their show’s negotiations. Dina hired a lawyer and wanted all the women to chip in so that they could all negotiate their contracts together for the show. Danielle declined saying she wanted to do her own negotiations.

Danielle went on to admit she regrets her actions saying, “It wasn’t my place to do so.” She also adds that she didn’t think it was a big enough deal to provoke Caroline’s reaction.

Other topics covered during the show included questions about her plastic surgery and sex tape. She denied ever having a brow lift, and claimed to be laying off on the botox for a while. When it came to the sex tape issue, she claimed to have been “set up.” She also denied the news of being a past escort.

I’m not really sure how one can be unaware that they are being taped with a cell phone camera while having sex, but umm sure Danielle. I’m sure she was set up the same way someone set her up to go on national television and ask her 46 26 year old boyfriend for public restroom sex.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey attended the Cirque Du Soleil in New Jersey yesterday. Well only some of the housewives, as Caroline Manzo was not in attendance.

You have to love the picture above and the space between Danielle and Teresa. Wondering if this means Jacqueline and Danielle have made up.

Below are more pictures of the cast with their families. Is it just me or is there something sorta sexy about Jacqueline’s husband, Chris?
