Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub is writing a tell-all memoir about her time on the Bravo series. She may have left the show after only two seasons back in 2010, but that does not mean that there are not enough stories to tell.
On Friday, Staub confirmed, via Twitter, that she will be launching a new book, which will talk about the “Reality of #RHONJ” and its impact on her family life. She hinted that the Real Housewives of New Jersey may not be all that it’s cracked up to be.
A few hours later, Danielle Staub posted a lengthy explanation on Instagram on why she chose to write a tell-all. The reality star shared that she had received multiple messages on social media just hours after she announced that she is writing a memoir. She claimed that this only goes to show that she is “still the most recognized housewife in the franchise.”
Danielle shared that she keeps receiving criticisms even after leaving Real Housewives of New Jersey. Out of respect for her two children, she said that she never once fought back.

She pointed out that people had already formed opinions of her character based on how Bravo presented on the show.
“Oh if I could only pick up all the edited film from the cutting room floor we would have the best f**king reality show on that network.”
In another post, Danielle Staub, however, explained that the memoir is not in any way a form of revenge against Bravo. She said she only wanted to show Real Housewives of New Jersey fans her side of the story. She added that she did not sign a non-disclosure agreement with the network.
The reality star held that her infamous RHONJ scenes will finally be explained, as she revealed the motives behind her actions.
“The one thing I can assure you is this, when I am done every rock will be tossed and tables will be thrown… Laugh with me cry with me but don’t expect me to hold back because this is my story in detail I’ll take you there sit you next to me where it’ll be seen vividly through my eyes.”
Danielle Staub’s new memoir elicited mixed responses from netizens. Some were definitely eager to find out what really goes on behind Real Housewives of New Jersey. They held that Danielle was treated badly by some of her cast mates, adding that it was time that she started to defend herself.

On the other hand, some pointed out that they knew all along that several reality TV shows, including Real Housewives of New Jersey, were somewhat contrived. They held that Daniel Staub should have just let her hatred go, adding that it has been years since she left Bravo.
In an interview with Us Weekly back in 2010, Staub admitted that she decided to leave Real Housewives of New Jersey because she was not getting along with her co-stars.
“I mean, what’s left for [the other castmates]? To kill me? Bravo seems to be glorifying their behavior. And I think it’s almost like telling children to behave poorly at school, ‘It’s OK.'”
Daniel Staub added that she is “too good” for Real Housewives of New Jersey. She insisted that Bravo needs her to make the show successful. Back then, she shared that she was open to doing a spin-off reality show, which will focus on her life with her two daughters Christine and Jillian.
