Danielle Staub has a sordid past and former RHONJ star Jacqueline Laurita wants to make sure we never forget that. 

After finally returning to Real Housewives of New Jersey and making amends with Teresa Giudice, it’s clear that Danielle Staub has been trying to clean up her image. Staub’s drama on RHONJ has been minimal in Season 8, She’s really only had a confrontation with Dolores Catania and even that has caused less fuss than the cake throwing during the premiere.

Leave it to former RHONJ star Jacqueline Laurita to come in and try to disrupt the peace and quiet for Danielle Staub. Jacqueline just wants to make sure no one has forgotten where her Bravo enemy came from.

It’s no secret that Danielle Staub’s past is a little shady. All About The Tea recently reminded RHONJ fans of some of it. It turns out that when Teresa Giudice called her a “prostitution whore,” she probably really did mean it. After all, there are allegations out there that prior to joining RHONJ,  Danielle worked as an escort under the aliases Beverly Ann Merrill and Angela Minelli.

A scathing tell-all book titled “Cop Without a Badge” also tells a story about how Danielle Staub was jumped after delivering a kilo of cocaine from one apartment to another for a Columbian drug family.

The report gets even more shocking with claims that Danielle Staub and her partner David Aguilar ended up kidnapping the owner of the apartment where she got jumped in an effort to earn back the money that their lost drugs cost them. That allegedly ended in Aguilar getting arrested and Danielle getting busted in the sting.

An older report from Gawker (remember them?) shared Danielle’s rap sheet and while some of it adds up, there are so many questions. According to Gawker, Danielle is the one who ratted out Aguilar. Instead of reporting that he was Staub’s partner, he was called her boyfriend… or at least one of them. That report claims that Staub ratted to another boyfriend who was a professional informant.

So how does Jacqueline Laurita fit into all of this? The former RHONJ star doesn’t. She just wants to make sure that fans of the Bravo hit never forget where Danielle Staub came from.

In a response to a fan who was preaching about not judging Danielle based on her past, Jacqueline responded with this well-timed tweet.

For those who may be curious about Jacqueline Laurita’s PornHub claims, yes there is a video on their website. It’s pretty easy to find if you search for Danielle Staub sex tape and the woman in it looks a whole lot like her, to be honest. You can be the judge of the tape’s authenticity if you want.

There’s also the racist rant that had Danielle’s RHONJ co-stars upset. The rant was made public after Season 8 was taped and there were rumors that Staub’s co-stars really wanted Bravo to just edit her out of footage for the whole season.

Despite not filming with Danielle Staub for several years, it seems that Jacqueline Laurita really has a bone to pick with her. An even bigger one than she has with Teresa Giudice. It’s hard to tell what may have caused Laurita to target Staub so heavily lately.

Our guess? Jacqueline is still friends with Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania, who clearly don’t care for Danielle. She probably wants to make sure that her RHONJ foe doesn’t get offered a ffull-timespot again, even though she’s been in every single episode of Season 8.
