Real Housewives of New Jersey is such a different show than it originally was. It started out as a somewhat lighthearted show about a family full of women who kept it real. No one was pushing cookbooks or trying to self-promote, it was just a great show full of fun drama. And at the heart of that entertainment was former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub.
There's no doubt that she was a polarizing character on the show, but, personally, I loved her. Say what you want, but there was never ever a dull moment that involved Danielle Staub. She was always stirring the pot. She got into fights with all of the women, ended up getting her hair pulled, and rolled deep with a dozen Hell's Angels to a charity event. Pretty much nothing was off limits with her, and I always wanted to know what she was up to.
These days, I don't really know what's going on in her life because she's no longer a cast member on the show. This saddens me. Is she still a force to be reckoned with? Is she still super close with her daughters, Jillian and Christine? Does she look the same? I have a lot of questions and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Let's see what Danielle Staub is up to today.
Working On Her Fitness
Danielle doesn't look like she's aged a day since her time on RHONJ! She's dedicated to working on her fitness and the woman looks good!
Posing At Photo Shoots
She's still working it for the cameras and the cameras still love her.
Cheering On Her Daughter Jillian
Danielle is a very involved cheer mom. She attends all of her daughters games and competitions to support her favorite cheerleader.
Lending A Helping Hand
Danielle took the time to encourage her community to donate to citizens who lost their homes in a devastating fire.
Just because Danielle isn't on Bravo anymore, it doesn't mean that she shouldn't be. I have no idea how accurate this graphic is, but I totally believe it.
Listening To Ed Sheeran
If you follow Danielle on Instagram, it's clear that she is a major Ed Sheeran fan. Almost every photo is an overlay of lyrics or has an Ed Sheeran reference in the caption.
Supporting Her Daughters
Danielle is very proud of her daughter Jillian's achievements at Seton Hall University and is there to support her through it all.
Surviving Her Bankruptcy
Danielle filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy with $1.9 million in liabilities in 2012, but according to Radar Online, a judge cancelled $700,00 in tax liens in 2014. Is this change in luck a good sign for other great things on the horizon?
Returning To RHONJ?
It would be make me pretty happy if Danielle returned to Real Housewives of New Jersey, and I'm not the only one. At the last reunion show, both Teresa Giudice and Dina Manzo stated that they would want Danielle back on the show. Plus, Radar Online reports that Danielle reached out to the newest RHONJ cast members Amber Marchese, Teresa Aprea, and Nicole Napolitano to try and get them on board for filming with her. Let's hope these rumors are true and that Danielle Staub is about to make a comeback!
