The life of Danielle Staub has been a soap opera.
This controversial star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is a former cocaine addict, sex tape star and extortionist.
Therefore, it comes as no shock that Staub actually appeared on a soap opera in 2001. While not exactly type-casted, Staub guest-starred on All My Children eight years ago.
She played an Italian woman named Nora, seen in the clip below on a date with Jackson Montgomery.
The couple is barely into its first drink, however, when Josh Duhamel - who starred on the daytime drama for five years - comes storming in. Check it out, after the jump.
