The Real Housewives franchise is almost always packed with one form of drama or the other.
However, there are some thrilling moments on these shows responsible for keeping fans glued to their skins all day long.
Danielle Staub, first joined “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” as a main cast member in in May 2009, but left after two seasons. After a weeks of speculation, Bravo announced that she was not coming back.
Now a member of “The Housewife and the Hustler” cast, she slammed the Bravo network for reportedly funding a criminal’s lifestyle.
Danielle Staub’s Calls Out Teresa Giudice
According to the reality star, the network should not include housewives like Teresa Giudice on its payroll, because she is a convicted felon.
A while back, Giudice was found guilty of 42 counts of fraud, however, she still earns $1.16 million per season from Bravo.
Taking to her Instagram page, Staub detailed why her former co-houseife should no longer be on the show. She cited that such behavior from Bravo will affect civilians “financially, emotionally, physically and mentally.”
“So happy to see you speaking out,” one fan wrote in support or Staub.
“My girl @daniellestaub ALWAYS telling it like it is!! So extremely proud of you!! Keep in mind a lot of the crimes have victims! Victims that are still suffering to this day,” another fan commented.
Staub’s Grievance With Bravo
Still commenting on the what she sees as a big problem for the Bravo network, Staub went ahead and educated the network on how to do a better job.
She noted that if the network had done its checks and balances and filmed Giudice in her real-life situation, then maybe everyone would have known that she was “fake.”
Furthermore, she said that the convicted reality star was able to sell a certain lifestyle to people because she was not filmed at home.
“I don’t judge but it was old filthy and anything but luxurious,” Staub said about Giudice’s home.
Is Giudice Leaving ‘RHONJ?’
Since Staub aired her thoughts on Instagram, neither Bravo nor Andy Cohen have put out a direct statement about the issue.
So, from the looks of things, it does not seem like the network had come to a decision on whether or not they should keep paying Giudice.
“Cheat Sheet” reported that the network still pays the reality star even after she spent some time behind bars. Although many Bravo fans agree with Staub’a deduction, others believe she is just being cruel to the American television personality.
Other Housewives With Legal Troubles & Accusations
Aside from Giudice, there are other franchise housewives who are going through court battles, but have not been put out by the network.
Erika Jayne and Jen Shah representing “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City,” have been undergoing court processions for one legal trouble or the other.
This is not the first time Staub is slamming her former housewives online. A while ago, she accused Melissa Gorga‘s husband, Joe, of running a ponzi scheme.
“… not paying people is part of their scam,” Staub said during an interview.
