Real Housewife Danielle Staub Says ‘I Wasn’t A Prostitute’

June 16, 2009 12:12 PM by Britteny Elrick


The Real Housewives of New Jersey have been in a frenzy over accusations surrounding Danielle Staub. The controversy began after the housewives got a hold of the book Cop Without A Badge, whichchronicles the life of undercover FBI informantKevin Maher who was married to Danielle in the 80′s. Danielle is finally opening up to address the rumors surrounding drug abuse, prostitution, and plastic surgery…

According to a report at PEOPLE, Danielle used to go by the name Beverly Merrill. Apparently, Kevin Maher has claimed that Danielle once worked for an escort service and was also involved with several drug dealers in the Miami area.

“It was such a lifetime ago. I was never a prostitute. Never,” Staub says in the new issue of PEOPLE, on stands Friday â⬔ adding that her ex-husband’s “recollection of me is completely absurd.” “I do enjoy a healthy sex life, but with one partner [at a time],” she adds. Danielle has also spoke out against Kevin saying he”brutalized and terrorized” her during their short marriage.

Danielle denies rumors of cocaine use bysaying,”I was a pothead. Period.” She does, however, own up to being arrested in 1986 after being charged with assisting in a kidnap and ransom plot.”I was arrested â⬔ what is the big deal?” she says, adding, “I haven’t gotten as much as a traffic ticket in all these years.”

As for rumors of her plastic surgery? Besides Botox (and the lip plumping she tried on-air), “I haven’t had anything done,” she says. “Just my bubbies. Two times.”

    Theresa with her “my father did it and my brothers did it”…that poor mom, oh hell, she was probably a PIA too. There is this phony family crap that usually shows up when families are chaotic and sometimes violent and then, guess what, they are saints !!
