We guess the much-anticipated showdown between Caroline Manzo and Danielle Staub is still out of the cards, folks!
It's been long rumored that the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star, not-so-affectionately called a "Prostitution Whore" by Teresa Giudice in the table-flipping first season finale, might be showing up the reality show's fifth season in either part or full-time capacity, but according to new sources with the Bravo network…it AIN'T happening!
While Staub DID meet with Housewives head Andy Cohen, insiders explain:
“Danielle actually met with Andy Cohen on the (November) 17th to film a Watch What Happens Live segment like Jill Zarin did, but then she wanted to get paid, so I think they aren't going to do it now. Danielle just isn’t the direction the producers want to go.”
And despite the certain drama she'd no doubt bring, we can certainly understand why!
Gurlfriend's behavior during the second season got borderline SCARY!
Oh well, though!
With the now-confirmed return of Caroline and Kathy and potential newbies signing on, we're sure Teresa will have a castmember or two backing her up this time around..just one that isn't a potential liability for the series!
