The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast wants returning Housewife Danielle Staub to be edited out of the upcoming eighth season after a video of her engaging in racist rant recently resurfaced.
In the video, Danielle can be seen using the N-word several times and calling her ex-boyfriend a “stupid fucking Mexican.”
While Danielle was not part of RHONJ at the time the video was shot in 2015, she is a major player in season 8.
Now the current cast is worried that having Danielle part of the cast will hurt their reputations and the show’s ratings.
Danielle is said to have an enormous amount of airtime during season 8 despite only being a friend of the Housewives and that editing her out would not be easy for Bravo.
Previously, sources told AllAboutTRH that Bravo wanted to make sure season 8 was a hit.
This even meant pushing the premiere of season 8 until “the fall’ to ensure that the “RHONJ ratings would skyrocket.”
AllAboutTRH was sent the below clip of Danielle back in August. At the time we wrote it off as old news but are now sharing it since the video has been re-released.
*Warning the video contains explicit audio and visual.*
I find this audio clip of Danielle utterly disgusting, but I highly doubt Bravo will edit her out of RHONJ. Bravo is looking for a successful season of RHONJ, and I think they are taking the notion that any publicity is good publicity.
Stick with AllAboutTRH for more details on this developing story.
