Danielle Staub of the Real Housewives of New Jersey has been a controversial figure in the show since the series began in early May. That controversy just got taken to a whole new level after previews for the upcoming episode show Danielle Staub’s on show enemy Dina Manzo holding a book titled “Cop Without a Badge” and revealing a supposed scandal related to Danielle. Recent media reports allege that the true crime book reveals that years before Danielle Staub was on the Real Housewives of New Jersey she was involved in a drug related kidnapping and extortion theme. The book, if true reveals that Danielle got a deal and pled guilty to only the extortion charge, for which she was sentenced to five years probation. The book and media reports also allege that Danielle was a stripper and went by several other names including Beverly Merrill, Danielle Maher and Beverly Maher. If true, this would be the biggest scandal of any Real Housewives season.
