“I’m abstinent now,” she told PEOPLE. “I realized that with abstinence, if you really, really believe in yourself like I do, you discover your own self-worth. Abstinence means you refrain from any sex — thinking about it, doing it — even to yourself! I’m a born-again virgin.” In fact, Staub said it’s been “over a year-and-a-half” since she’s had sex.
Staub, who according to multiple online reports began shooting the reality TV show’s season 2 in August for a spring premiere, said when she finds Mr. Right, she’ll return to an active sex life. “I am saving myself for marriage. I didn’t do it the first two times but I learned from my mistakes. So now, it’s okay to wait.”
So is Staub, 45, on a mission to marry? “Marriage is a goal of mine but not because I need it, but because I want it. It’s a big difference.”
I can’t wait till the new season and all the drama. Gotta love those Jersey girls.
Danielle Staub, the girl you love to hate, was in court last week. Why? She accused frenemy housewife Jacqueline Laurita‘s, 19-year-old daughter, of attacking her after a fashion show at the Hamburg Turnpike country club in New Jersey. Supposedly she yanked out her hair extensions. Gee, what a classy young lady.
Danielle told the judge, “I’m just a little afraid, to be honest with you,” Staub told Judge Lawrence Katz. She said the hair-raising experience happened Nov. 11 after she left a restroom and found two costars, Laurita and Teresa Giudice, waiting to taunt her.
“Jacqueline and Teresa were waiting for me and began yelling at me,” she recalled. “I felt a little threatened.” Staub says she tried to flee, but as she ran through the country club she was pushed and scratched by the pair and broke her shoe heel.
Her bodyguard found her hiding in the parking lot. When he tried to carry her to her car, Laurita’s daughter, Ashley Holmes, allegedly attacked and screamed, “I’ll get her” and “I’ll kill you”. Holmes then yanked Staub’s hair and her extension came out, Staub said.
Somebody needs to put Jacqueline’s daughter on meds or something. It looks like this season of RJOJ is going to be good. Can’t wait!
The 15-year-old has just signed with IMG Model– the same agency that represents Gisele Bunchen, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss and Taylor Momsen. “She came into our offices and we were blown away!” Ivan Bart, SVP and Managing Director of IMG Models Worldwide, tells PEOPLE.com. “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.”
The 5′10″ soon-to-be high school sophomore is still taking test photos, but it is possible she could hit the catwalk as early as September for New York Fashion Week, according to IMG. “This is all very new to me,” Chirstine 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!”
I wonder what rockstar, actor, or star athlete Christine will end up marrying? Maybe Nick Jonas or Robert Pattinson? Whatever she does, she better keep her boyfriends away from her mama.
Bravo TV Exec, Andy Cohen, is getting his own late night talk show. Who is one of his first guests? Of course Danielle Staub from Real Housewives of New Jersey. I’m sure most of you’re wondering what Danielle did to piss Caroline off so much. Well, so is Andy.
TVGuide.com: What do you plan to ask Danielle?
Cohen: As much as we got to in the reunion show, there is a lot people still want to know. Hopefully we’ll get [those questions] answered tonight. I think what Caroline accused her of [at the end of the reunion] is what everyone is still wondering. I have a sense, but it’s not for me to say. Plus more information has come up since the reunion show — the Smoking Gun came out with a bunch of documents about her past and there’s been a sex tape. We’ve gotten a lot of questions already [from people] so it should be interesting.
Rumor is…Danielle slept with Dina’s first husband. During their affair, she turned Dina into “Child Protective Services” for being a bad mom. Danielle should talk, with all her boy toys crusing threw her mansion. Next season she will probably hit on her daughters boyfriends.

In the latest cat fight, according to Popsquire, they are claiming the Real Housewives of Jersey did not get paid for appearing on the show. WTF? That can’t be true. According to this document, it states that the girls have to pay Siren Media 10% of whatever they earn over the next four years. Could this be true?
Normally, Bravo contracts various production companies to produce their successful series franchise. For example, Siren Media produces Real Housewives of Jersey. Endemol TV, famous for Big Brother, Deal or No Deal, Rock of Love, etc. produces Real Housewives of Atlanta. Endemol is also responsible for the new dating show, Dating in the Dark. In Hollywood, a reality show pilot can be shot, and the cast members ONLY get paid if the show is picked up. This means Siren Media didn’t pay the girls but Bravo definitely is.

I missed the second part of last nights Reunion show. Thanks to NJ.com, they have a nice recap which I have read before I watch it on TIVO. I think it’s safe to say, most people don’t realize what they are signing up for when they decide to do a reality show. It gets kinda crazy, your personal life becomes everyones business, and skeletons you thought were packed in the closet come flying out.
“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion show served up harsh words, tears, a teeny bit of crow-eating, and a little legal lesson courtesy of Caroline Manzo: Danielle Staub’s “spoken proof” that Dina Manzo spread word of her unsavory past around town is what the legal system likes to call, as Caroline points out, hearsay.
Caroline and Dina manage to convince Danielle that Dina did not, in fact, plaster NC-17 outtakes from “Cop Without a Badge” in the Franklin Lakes town square, and Danielle admits that she might have been fed bad info. She says she lashed out throughout the first season because she was in a bad place, and Dina seems to accept that, and even allows that, given time, she might be able to be friends with Danielle. Caroline, however, can’t. There’s a mysterious-to-viewers back-and-forth about something that Danielle did to Dina that the women refuse to talk about, but it’s enough to put Danielle in Caroline’s bad graces forever.
“You are garbage, and you are disgraceful,” Caroline says, crying. “I will never forgive her, and you will never be a friend of me.” Nothing like ending the season on a cheery note!
Earlier in the evening, programming veep Andy Cohen asks the question we’ve all wondered about: Why would Danielle go on a show like this knowing she had a past like that? Danielle seems to think it would have stayed hidden if the Manzos hadn’t found out about it. Dina that they heard about the book from her niece, who had been told about it by one of Danielle’s friends. “I disliked you prior to the book,” Caroline says. “When I found the book, I disliked you ever more, and I lost any kind of faith or trust, anything I had in you.” How could Danielle fault her for investigating this, Caroline asks.
Caroline then claims that three friends asked her about the book while she was at the hair salon, so she told them what she knew. Danielle finds it veddy interesting that they knew about the book before Caroline told them. Caroline claims that the stories were already swirling around town. Of course they were, Dina says: Danielle was in the spotlight, she’s filming a reality show, people start talking, and Danielle admitted herself that a few of her Wayne friends had known about the book.
When Caroline breaks down the salon conversation in detail, Danielle is finally forced to admit that what she heard from other people may not be entirely accurate, but says she wouldn’t apologize for other people feeding her lines and turning her against Dina. “I have evolved from that and I’m a different person now, and I see that I shouldn’t have done and listened to other people and formed my judgment on that. What I did was wrong.” But she’s not going to apologize!
Danielle also offered up a few details on her past: She was born to a teenage mother, was adopted by an abusive family, raped at the age of 8, and left home “very, very young.” “I was brutalized, and I felt like (Kevin Maher, her first ex-husband) terrorized my life,” she says, breaking down in tears. “I might have said some wrong things, but I can’t apologize for the things that happened to me since I was a baby … You’re all so blessed to have such wonderful families. I’m really happy for you, but maybe one day you might see my heart and see that I wasn’t so lucky to have that.”
Well, fortunately for Danielle Staub, she’s the breakout star of the show. The women with a past, the girl you love to hate, the kind of chick guys want to sleep with, but don’t want to marry. I’m sure there will be a second season, Danielle will be paid the big bucks, and hopefully she will find a man who will treat her right.
In other rumors, some people day Danielle hit on Dina’s husband or had an affair with him. Is it true? Who knows? Definitely one of my favorite seasons.
