Danielle Staub to host her own show on WealthTV

Danielle-StaubIf you watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey, you know that even the classiest events have the tendency to end in table-flipping or hair-pulling. Former cast member Danielle Staub’s newest reality show, however, will assure people that not all events in the Garden State end in drama. Staub has begun filming Social, a new reality show set to air on Wealth TV, available to HDTV customers. The network confirmed Staub’s role in the show: “It’s a phenomenal show and people are excited to have Danielle,” said Cary Sandoval, creator and executive producer.

Sandoval describes the show as a re-imagined Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, with Staub tackling the role of Robin Leach by traveling to the homes of fabulous friends and attending events ranging from birthday parties to black tie affairs. While her New Jersey home provides easy access to Manhattan and the Hamptons, Sandoval left the idea of traveling across the country, and even overseas, open. “[We want to] incorporate the fact that she’s an international socialite,” he said.

Despite being portrayed as the villain (or victim, depending what side you’re on) during her two seasons on RHONJ, there will be no high school behavior or mean girls mentalities on this new show. “Danielle is an absolute sweetheart. They’re going to see the show as a polar opposite to what she was portraying on Real Housewives,” Sandoval said. In addition to highlighting general fabulousness and invoking real estate envy, Social hopes to “raise awareness [for various charities] and give back to the community.”

Social is the first confirmed television project for Staub since her departure from The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Along with her budding music career, she says she’s shopping plans for a second reality show, but no networks or details have been announced at this time.

Will you be watching Danielle on her newest reality TV show? Is this the right move for her? Is it inevitable that all Housewives women will remain in the public eye even after their tenure with Bravo ends? And if that’s so, is there any Housewives lady whose impending reality show ubiquity won’t make you want to flee the country? (Fingers crossed for Beverly Hills).

    What about her contract with Bravo that states she can’t have another show on another network for two years?

    • godiva de maus

      If Bravo opts to not renew her contract, it’s quite possible she then becomes a free agent. Or, they may have agreed to release her in exchange for her signing an agreement not to sue.

  • Katja

    Oh…my lord. I don’t know much about this woman, but there is something called “Wealth TV”??? Ew.

    • JB

      heh. so true. I’ll have to tear my eyes from the pages of “Yachter’s Weekly” to catch this show.

      • Winston

        I hope they get sued for ripping off “Colbert Platinum” haha

    • Jason D

      Watch welath TV all the time..I need to keep up to date on the latest sports cars, super yachts, Beverly Hills, $50,000 rings and of course Castles and Kings.

      Actually I hope Danielle has a great time and gets picked up for another series…she was the most fun in RHONJ…without her it will get boring like Berely Hills Housewives…she should fit in well..or wealth…lol

  • Easy Does It

    Wasn’t she supposed to marry some Lori something or other that she met at Gay Pride? I thought she completely dumped her NJ home and fled to Lori’s condo or whatever… Regardless I think Danielle’s new ascent to hosting duties is gonna need a big mattress to break her fall…

  • Mystery Teri

    I would NEVER watch any thing that she does ever again…I hated her on Housewives…she’s crazy and dangerous…you folks at WealthTV (whatever that is) had better watch your backs..she will sue on in a heartbeat!

  • Rashelle

    She is trash! Doesn’t know how to tell the truth. You are sending her into people’s homes? Lock up the liquor and hide your husbands. Maybe you can all sit around and watch her sex tape. her poor children.

    • Cindy

      It is so amazing that she still has custody. What a damn tragedy noone has stepped in (like, maybe, their father, who’s probably not much better under the circumstances they got together in the first place)to put them in a healthy home away from the delusional, dangerous, nut job that is Danielle Staub.

  • tigger851

    thought she was broke and couldn’t get the daughters’ father to give her money!!! but she’s talkin’ ’bout wealth?? she’s a fruit loop!

    • Jason D

      Since when did anyone have to be rich to host a show about wealth?

  • JanJ

    Never heard of Wealth TV; I am so glad I won’t have to watch her anymore….she will fail at this too. Isn’t she really a man? Look at her!

    • TJ

      you’re being a little rough on old square-boobs, no? eh, maybe not

  • einurreta

    So happy for Danielle!!!!
    She’s a very talented person

    All the good luck to her!!

    • JD

      You were better off just posting one of those “I found my boyfriend at” spam posts

      • ani

        hahaha, very true.

  • sem

    Who are these idiots at wealthtv that think people are going to watch this piece of trash?!? Boy, are they in for a rude awakening!

  • Brent

    Damn folks! Can the woman get a gig without hate being spewed on her?

    • starfish

      Danielle spewed hate on her castmates and their children…she is TRASH..but..its appears thats what america wants to see

    • Patricia

      Danielle was ratings gold for Bravo. Wealth TV would like some of that :) BTW, it’s an HD only channel so don’t worry about tuning in unless your HD provider carries the channel.

  • starfish

    Its all about Danielle..bravo let her threaten her castmates..thru her blogs and tv show…am I the only one who can see that…reward her give her a show…

  • DMG

    @einurreta. Danielle, please stop leaving comments on yourself under a cryptic name!

  • godiva de maus

    I haven’t a clue where the channel “WealthTV” is. Even if I did, she’s not a lady enough to hold my interest for even one second.

  • sandy

    Never heard of the Wealth station but one thing I have heard of is…..you DON’T condone evilness by paying someone to promote their ugly, vile behavior in the American viewers living rooms! This WOMAN is disgusting and if I ever come across the Wealth televion station I will not indulge in a station that would promote and put this hideous woman on my screen. Are subjects that few and far between that you have to resort to this bottom feeder?
