TSG: Danielle Staub Coke/Kidnapping/Escort Criminal Records
We hate reality shows and never had any interest in the gruesome-sounding Real Housewives of New Jersey, but we're a little more tempted now that The Smoking Gun has laid out Housewife Danielle Staub's criminal records under her old name, Beverly Ann Merrill. "Testing" cocaine for dealers? Involved in kidnapping? Described by a witness as having "worked for an escort service"? Five years probation for extortion? We understand its old news to reality show fans, but for us, it's like we've been living in an alternative universe all this time. Plus she "seductively danced with her son"? Even by reality show standards, that's impressive. Tell us: are they like this on Dancing With The Stars?
