Danielle Staub

Danielle Staub (born Beverly Ann Merrill; July 29, 1962) is an American television personality, author, singer, and adult performer best known for her appearance on the Bravo reality series the Real Housewives of New Jersey. During the first season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, the participants in the reality show confronted Staub with Charles Kipps's book Cop Without a Badge, which recounts events surrounding an undercover FBI informer, Kevin Maher (one of Staub's former husbands) including an account of Staub's arrest. Known at the time as Beverly Ann Merrill, Staub cooperated with authorities and received five years' probation. Although Staub has acknowledged that she was arrested in June 1986, she denies many of the other allegations made by Maher. Staub's autobiography, The Naked Truth, was released on May 25, 2010, and in it she claims that her arrest was a matter of "wrong place/wrong time". After weeks of speculation, it was confirmed by Bravo that Staub would not be returning to the show for season three but no reason was given. It was later revealed that Caroline Manzo told Bravo and RH czar Andy Cohen that she would not return to the series if Danielle did
