'Housewives' Ex Sues -- I Never Raped Her

10/8/2009 7:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The husband of Danielle Staub from "Real Housewives of New Jersey" claims she strait up lied when she called him a rapist and a dog murderer ... and now he's suing her for defamation.

Kevin Maher -- who was married to Danielle in the late 80s -- filed a lawsuit today in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming the following things Danielle told People Magazine in June of 2009 are a load of bull:

-- He raped her on a bed of broken glass
-- He "inserted his handgun inside [Danielle]" and played Russian Roulette
-- He murdered her dog by hanging it

Kevin say he's receieved "serious and outrageous threats" since the article was released.

Kevin is suing for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

You should have someone check the grammar before posting. It should be "straight-up" not strait, which is a channel that joins to bodies of water.

She is one twisted scary chick. The State should step in and take her kids. Ever watch the show? She's not dealing with a full deck.

Hmmm? A bed of broken glass. She must have had one lying around if what the ex says about her is true. Crying rape makes it extremely hard for the women in this world who have indeed been raped. ~ Those are some really low things she said about her ex. I hope he wins EVERYTHING and more in his lawsuit, if it is indeed true.

Kevin Maher's book says it all - he's a rat for money. He'll do just about anything for money. This lawsuit is no different.

I would like for your company to hire me or SOMEONE that knows who to spell or type correctly. Thank you

Now, this woman has huge issues. There is something terribly wrong with her. What does she do, stay up at night and think this stuff up? I hope that he sues the crap out of her.

I seriously wish this one unmarried "housewife" would be asked to leave the show. She's repulsive.

"HE RAPED HER ON A BED OF BROKEN GLASS."


PEOPLE ! ! !

Just in case you wanted to know... THOSE ARE THE TYPICAL WORDS OF A MENOPAUSAL MANIAC.

They cannot sort out reality from (literally) a bad dream.

yeah....and?    

Yet another low class "Housewife"

Do they turn these chicks out of a factory or something?

But, more importantly, would you ever, if you were this victim, want to drudge up all this sh!t now that you are a eerrr, public figure, for lack of a better term?

Guns in ones va-genie? Beds of broken glass? Dog killers?

Really? And.....you hung out with guy AFTER all of that. Thats rich.

I'm to understand that she was the one to bring this all up again on the show? For all of America to hear?

Help please, I refuse to watch this trash TV, so I'm a little clueless.


Ladies, get a life that isn't going to included making an ass out of ourselves, at least think of your children who will reemed by the public as soon as they realize whom their Mother is.

Way to go all of you "Houswives" great decision making process.
