Danielle Staub -- Settlement Reached in War with Ex

10/4/2010 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Danielle Staub has reached a settlement with her ex-husband Kevin Maher -- thus ending a ferocious legal war over allegations that he once raped her with a gun and murdered her dog.

Danielle Staub settlement.
The terms of the settlement are confidential -- but one source close to the case tells us ... "cash was involved in the deal."

As we previously reported, Maher had sued the former "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star for $5 million -- claiming she defamed him by allegedly spreading horrible lies about him to several people and various news outlets.

TMZ spoke with Maher who told us, "The matter was resolved to the satisfaction of both parties." Maher also told us, "It's interesting that the case gets settled the day before Danielle was supposed to be deposed ... it was going to be the worst day of her life."

A rep for Staub had no comment.

He sounds like a very violent bad ass to me. He denies what she is accusing him of yet if you listen to what he's saying these days, it drips of violence.

I personally believe this guy did all that stuff. He is a covicted felon who said he was a cop among other things!

As for the rest of the people on the show...I hate that Bravo censors all the posts, ESPECIALLY the ones that are negaive to their "stars or favorites"! Hell, you can't even post on the Salahi one cause they will delete it! It's only positive stuff!

Jaqueline was an escort in Vegas, which is how she met her husband.

Ashley has some serious anger management issues and has been seen drinking unerage and using drugs.

Caroline and her family are super mobbed up! Her father in law was murdered by the mob execution style!! And yeah, she is an instigater and deffinately is an underhanded and conieving person. She is super two faced and makes everyone think she is sweet and nice.

Teresa, hell where to start with that nightmare! She has lied about multiple things with the house and everything. Can't believe a single thing she says!

This show was a trainwreck from the start and they made Danielle out to be the bad guy and all she did was not hide her life!

Nasty, skanky, tranny Dani had to avoid being deposed at all costs. She wouldn't have been able to deny all the whopping lies she told once she was under oath. Well, of course she could lie, but then she'd be in real trouble with the court. Now she'll just dance around (with or without her pole) pretending to be vindicated. Kind of like she pretended to be Michael, commenter #17 in this discussion. Go away, Danielle/Angela/Beverly.

That's the scariest face I've actually seen on a person. I actually peed a little. Yeesh! She must terrify small children.

Of course she came up with some cash she couldn't testify because everything she said was a lie. Wonder where she got the $$$$$$$$, unless she has a lesbian sugar daddy??? Danielle is all fake, boobs, hair, nails, face, and if not fake then everything she says is a lies, and yep Danielle the Manzos still don't want to hang with you.

What a freaking life she is in!!!
