On this week's installment of The Real Housewives of New Jersey - and, based on numerous comments, on future episodes to come - the past of Danielle Staub was exposed.
Castmate Caroline Manzo just happened to come across a book titled "Cop Without a Badge," which was written by Staub's ex-boyfriend, a man that went into detail about her drug and sex habits, as well as her criminal record.
Now, without getting into any specifics (because, hey, she has to save those for the show's ratings!), Staub has attempted to clear up misconceptions about her in a blog for Bravo. Here are excerpts from it:
Over two and a half decades ago I was arrested. I was just a child, with no guidance or parents to speak of, in an industry that was very fast paced. I got in with the wrong crowd, and was not completely aware of the serious nature of my surroundings.
I did not kidnap anyone. I am not a prostitute. I was merely at the wrong place with the wrong people at the wrong time. I apologize for being vague, but this is all I can reveal at this time.
It seems everyone may be feeling I have this harshness about me, I promise you it is only because I am broken to pieces inside. To all the ladies who I respect and only desired to be a part of, I would like you to know me and see my heart.
