Danielle Staub: Mug Shot, Coke Whoring Past Reportedly Revealed

by at . Comments

Over the first couple episodes of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle Staub confessed to a two-year phone sex relationship with a man she'd never met; and offered a blow job to some random dude in a restaurant.

Both those developments pale in comparison to Staub's alleged past, which are just now coming to light.

As the show teased in its preview for next week's episode, this Real Housewife was not always a member of the Garden State's elite. She's reportedly mentioned in the 1995 book "Cop Without a Badge," a memoir penned by former FBI informant Kevin Maher.

Thanks to "Cop Without a Badge," the entire world now knows the history of Danielle Staub and her vadge.

According to this biography, Staub used to go by the name Beverly Merrill. She met Maher at a drug party in Miami in the 1980s. (He describes Staub/Merril as a "coke whore.")

The initial interaction between the pair came after she was released on $10,000 bail, following an arrest for her alleged involvement in the kidnapping of a man who owed her drug dealing friend money.

Maher used his police connections to get Staub off with nothing more than probation, left his wife for her and describes her in the book as:

"Brunette. Long, perfectly shaped legs poked out of her leather hot pants just as provocatively as her braless breasts strained against her low-cut blouse." He also writes that Merril rarely wore underwear and "is a good person. She has no morals, but she's a good person."

Does this sound like Danielle Staub? More importantly, does the following mug shot of "Beverly Merrill" look like her?

Asked about these allegations, a Bravo rep (undoubtedly giddy over the exposure), simply said: “Watch what happens.”

Based on a public records search, Staub formerly went by the names Beverly Merrill, Danielle Maher and Beverly Maher.

Wow. Bethenny Frankel is really gonna need to step it up if she wants to remain the most famous Housewife.




daniele you are one crazy ass whore. no one can stand you including kim g. and as for your bodyguards, please give me a break they was some skankass dudes with no life. do another line you freak.


Danielle, Danielle, Danielle....you are so out of touch with reality. What makes you think that the Manzo family cares about you ? They are trying to rid of you but you won't except that. Maybe it's time to get some help and concentrate on providing for your girls and move on. No one cares about you or your need for drama ! You are just not that important...So Sorry !


Lady you are one big loser with a capital L ... you want to be respected and liked then quit acting like some coked out bimbo with your ridiculous body guards and all the drama. You should use your money from the show for some serious mental illness treatment you suffer from Narcissism to the point of being pathetic. I feel for your kids to go through this and someone should get them off that show and away from you before you ruin their lives next.


Is it just me, or am I the only one who thinks that Danielle is just weird? What makes her think that these people care about her? I just don't understand. How did it get to the point where she feels the need to have bodyguards? I just don't get it.


Oh my god Danielle you look like an ass!!! Running around looking to fight with the family. You are uneducated and a low life!! Danny is an idiot as well..true gangsta's don't brag you asshole!! You are a joke.HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Really?! You show up to a benefit for a CHILD with your mob wannabe friends thinking it is a good idea? Who the fuck does Danielle think she is? And that Danny? I am a tiny 5'2" and 110 lb woman and I could and would love to have the chance to kick that guys ass! The Manzo's seem like a great family that want to stay away from Drama, Danielle and her "posse" need to just stay the hell away. That woman deserves all the negative things that come her way for sure!!!


I don't like her, I don't trust her, she is a fake and a trouble maker. Go back to brooklyn and hang with your own kind Danielle. You can not hold a candle to NJ Housewives.


danielle is a fucking nut job, im not about bashing people that hve a record, i think everyone deserves a chance, but holy crap how long can she play the victim card? its pretty clear that the whole family wants nothing to do with her, yet she cant except it? get over it!!!


why does she pretend to be italian ?
