<p><span></span><em>Life & Style</em> has exclusively learned that controversial Jersey girl <strong>Danielle Staub</strong> has not been asked to return for season three of the hit Bravo show <em>The Real Housewives of New Jersey</em>.<br />
"Danielle was told that she would not be returning for a third season," an insider reveals to Life & Style. In fact, Danielle's finding out she was fired "came as a complete shock, and she thought she was definitely going to return to the successful Bravo series," the insider continues.
Danielle is not only known for her vicious catfights on-screen but also for her sex tape scandal, prostitution allegations, link to drugs and legal battles with other cast mates.
The insider reveals that Danielle is currently trying to generate interest in a spin-off reality series about her life.
Danielle told Life & Style at her birthday party on Aug. 10 in NYC, "I don't know if there are talks right now about a third season of the show, but I'm more excited about talks of my spin-off than anything else."
A rep for the Bravo network tells Life & Style, "Bravo does not comment on casting of upcoming seasons of Housewives while current seasons are still airing." Danielle's booking agent had "no comment" on Danielle's status on the show.
Season two of The Real Housewives of New Jersey wraps up on Aug. 23, followed by an explosive reunion show airing in two parts on Aug. 30 and Sept. 6.
