Danielle Staub Makes Russell Armstrong Suicide All About Herself

by at . Comments

In the wake of Russell Armstrong's suicide, numerous past and present members of the Real Housewives family have spoken out, sending their thoughts and prayers to this troubled man's loved ones.

Danielle Staub? She's taken the opportunity to bring the focus back to her and her own painful struggle.

If Danielle Staub needs help, we hope she gets it. Away from the camera and the spotlight.

"I was very close to taking my own life - not just on one occasion," Staub told Entertainment Tonight this week. "And what always saved me was the thought of my children living with that for the rest of their lives. I didn't want them to have that memory of me. I wanted them to remember me - even if I'm going through my struggles - alive."

So, just to read behind the self-serving lines: Danielle Staub is a stronger, more thoughtful person than Russell Armstrong.

Referring to the affect reality TV can have, Danielle adds that "it's really hard to talk to people who are not in our genre about what really goes on when the lights go down... it's hard to explain to people who aren't doing this for a living." How has she responded to such difficulty? By doing reality TV for a living.

Staub stars on VH1's Famous Foods alongside such other stalwarts as Heidi Montag and Jake Pavelka.

So homemade porn was ok for the kids, acting like white trash on reality tv is ok, stripping, sugar daddy dating sites, but not suicide? If she were my mom, id prefer suicide.

Shame on Danielle for doing this to Taylor and her family, shame on ET for giving her time to promote herself in the eye of another perso's tragedy! What is she doing with her finger, Daniellie have you not heard of High Def, or rewind, there are NO tears there! If you have contemplated suicide "several" times for the Love of God someone rescue those children from her! Her Genre? If it makes you suicidal what is the next stop on this phony train wreck "Celebrity Rehab"? Of which you are NOT a celebrity!!!!

Being on reality tv was so tough that she was trying to shop a new show about her and her daughters in the months after she "walked away" from RHONJ. Remember that?

You are disgusting. You use your children and anyone to make it all about you. You should be consoling Taylor instead of making a headline about you. Get off the TV!!!!

This woman is like dogs--- on the bottom of your shoe. She refuses to go away!!!! She is a plastic-faced person (can't even say woman b/c I am not sure...) God-if only there was one when discussing this thing called Danielle. Gross. By the way- who was happy you didn't do yourself in?

OH MY GOD!!!! Are you kidding me? It's amazing how she is making this all about her. She made the decision to go on the show. NOT only one season but a couple ( UNTIL SHE WAS FIRED ) if she was so depressed and upset about the show WHY keep going back? She would STILL be on it if she wasnt fired. PLUS she is doing yet another show on VH1 now. But it's so horrible for her right? Gimme a freakin break.

There you go making it about yourself again acting like the victim.
