The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Danielle Staub’slife 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 the15-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, tellsPEOPLE. “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.
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.
An expanded live series of Watch What Happens will premiere July 16 on Bravo at midnight with host Andy Cohen. Andy is best known for hosting Watch What Happens reunion specials including the two part reunion for The Real housewives of New Jersey.
Viewers will enjoy getting to know Andy and his weekly guests. Andy will interview guests from some of Bravo’s highly rated shows. The show is meant to keep you updated on the world of entertainment, pop culture . There will be lots of viewer interaction by email, phone, video, twitter and facebook.
We can expect the show to be unpredictable, funny, and occasionally shocking. You don’t want to miss the premier show tomorrow which will feature New Jersey Housewives’ Danielle Staub.
Hopefully Andy will ask some unanswered questions from the reunion show and let’s hope Danielle will answer them truthfully.
Energetic Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Giudice is expecting baby #4 in September. Teresa opens up to OK magazine about her pregnancy.
“I eat everything,” she tellsOK with young daughter Gia at her side. “I don’t watch what I eat – I’m not one of those ‘oh I have to watch my figure.’ I just make the baby happy. Whatever the baby wants, I eat it. No cravings.” Teresa says she has had to satisfy her alcohol cravings with food.
She goes on to say she is not interested in knowing the sex of the baby. “Whatever God wants – as long as it’s a healthy baby.” Gia adds, “It’s the fourth child and you want it to be a surprise – you should let it be a surprise.”
Big sisters Gia, Gabriella and Milania are anxious to meet the new addition to the family. Teresa also adds that hubby, Juicy Joe, is a great dad.
Lessons she will like to pass on to the kids- value family and be a well-rounded good person because you have to look at yourself in the mirror daily.
The contract information of The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast has been leaked and boy oh boy is it interesting. Popsquire was able to get their hands on the contract signed by one of the ladies, and here is a brief summary of what it entails –
Unlike most other reality shows, the contract does not require Bravo to pay the NJ ladies for their appearances.
In addition to receiving no compensation, they have to pay Bravo 10% of “any and all gross income…unrelated to the Series” that they earn for up to four years after the last episode of the series. (So I take it Bravo is earning 10% off the profits of Bethanny’s “Naturally Thin” book)
The producers did agree not to film the ladies engaging in any of the following conduct without prior approval: “(i) showering/bathing, (ii) urination/defecation, and (iii) engaging in actual sexually explicit conduct.”
Okay, so these women sign away their lives and even part of the earnings just to be on television? Fame is a helluva drug.
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 –
It is now being speculated that the exact thing Danielle Staub did to Dina Mano was try to help her ex husband get her daughter, Lexi, taken away from her. Keyword here is speculation. Allegedly, wanting to hold on to custody of her daughter might have been the main reason Dina decided to quit her job to become a full stay at home mom.
No word on if the information Danielle gave to Dina’s husband is true or false, nor do we know what information this might have been. This theory does make a lot of sense considering what Danielle wrote in her blog last week regarding Caroline’s outburst –
“I simply gave a phone number to her ex brother-in-law to contact proper people with questions that he had concerning something that was absolutely none of my business. I was asked to give this information to him. If I had to do it again, I would have declined and preferred not to get involved.”
All interesting stuff. Moving on from that, is a clip of Danielle’s appearance on the soap – All My Children in 2001. This seems to be one of the few truths to come out of her mouth, as it was revealed she was never a Ford model even though she claimed she was.
