Danielle Staub has taken time out from planning prepping her Ray J sex tape to comment on the upcoming season of her former show.

New episodes of The Real Housewives of New Jersey kick off tonight, but Staub - who exited the series a few months ago - doesn't have high hopes for her ex-castmates.

"It's not going to have the ratings," Staub told E! News. "I brought the [drama]. People either loved me or hated me, but they were paying attention. This [season] is just full out nasty family fighting. Everyone's got that. Where's the element of surprise there?"

Danielle says she won't be watching season three, but there is one thing that would draw her back to the series: "Money, money, money."

Depressing times are ahead on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. At least for Teresa Giudice.

Previewing the new season of the Bravo hit, which premieres on May 16, Giudice said "sad" times are ahead for her and her immediate family. The reason? New cast addition, sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.

"You're going to see a totally different side of me this season," Teresa told E! News. "It's really sad. I cry a lot on the show and it's very hard for me."

The season will focus heavily on Teresa's damaged relationship with her brother, Joe, which fell apart after he married Gorga.

On the upcoming premiere, an all-out brawl takes place during Melissa and Joe's christening shindig for their son, all due to nasty words exchanged with Teresa.

Danielle Staub may be gone, but the drama will still be boiling over every week on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

The series returns on May 16 with a special 90-minute episode, during which viewers will meet two new cast members, both with connections to Teresa Giudice: Melissa Gorga is the her sister-in-law, while Kathy Wakile is Teresa's cousin.

Bravo has released the first promotional shots of these new stars.

Wakile (right) is married with two children. Her official Bravo profile makes no secret that this is a woman "who loves to party and have a good time."

Gorga, meanwhile, has three kids and is married to a successful real estate developer. You won't believe this, but she does not get along with Giudice at all. Why would Bravo possibly cast her on the show in that case?!?

Teresa Giudice has thrown down with her brother. Therefore, you can only imagine what this Real Housewife of New Jersey would do to a stranger at a bar.

Then again, according to Radar Online, you don't need to imagine: sources tell that site Teresa and her reality show castmates were on vacation in the Dominican Republic in late February when Giudice started spraying champagne everywhere.

A patron's husband did not react well to the rowdy gesture, "got really angry and punched Teresa in the face!”

Real, Irritating Housewife

From there, police confirm a fracas broke out involving many faces familiar to viewers, all of whom were at the establishment: Caroline Manzo and her husband; Jacqueline and Chris Laurita, Teresa and Joe Giudice; Joey and Melissa Gorga; and the Manzo children, Chris, Albie, and Lauren.

As someone who might get murdered any day now, Danielle Staub is trying to make the most of each second.

That's why she wants 2011 to be worry-free, telling Radar Online that her resolution is to "get in touch with my fun side."

"That is what I want. I want the fun girl to come out," Staub said. "Fun is sexy and cute and dorky. I'm all those things... I am me. There is always going to be haters and they win when they bring me down."

Foremost among those haters, of course, are The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle's former co-stars. Does she have any advice for Teresa Giudice and company?

"Stop being mean girls and resolve to be nice to everyone. Period. There is a much better existence."

As previously reported, Tamra Barney and Jeana Keough got into a major fracas at a Real Housewives of Orange County wrap party on Saturday.

But these two weren't the only Bravo reality stars to pretend to fight for the camera this weekend.

According to Radar Online, Teresa Giudice attended the christening of her nephew yesterday afternoon, as hosted by her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and her husband, Joey, both of whom will appear on The Real Housewives of New Jersey next season.

Most Popular Housewife?

Following the baptism, which Teresa attended alone, the Housewife brought husband, Joe, and the couple's four children to a post-church reception. With cameras now rolling, she went up to congratulate her brother - who reportedly rebuffed the offer, saying:

"Now you want to congratulate me after all this time? Now you want to be nice to me? Your husband didn't even come to the church and you show up an hour late!"

It's just not fair.

That's the message friends of Teresa Giudice have for Bravo, as they insist this Real Housewife of New Jersey is not holding off on re-signing with the show because she's greedy; she just wants equal pay.

"I think people deserve to know the truth," a pal told Pop Eater. "Bravo pays Caroline and Jacqueline more than Teresa and she isn't holding out because she thinks she's bigger. She just wants to make the same."

Would you watch these Housewives without Teresa Giudice?

Based purely on the number of magazine covers on which she's appeared, Giudice is actually the most popular Housewife in franchise history. That's a fact not lost on her friends.

It's official: The Real Housewives of New Jersey will be far more sane next season.

Announcing the news that made its way around the Internet weeks ago, Bravo has confirmed the departure of Danielle Staub from the show's cast. Speaking on last night's reunion special - which concluded with a hug between Staub and Jacqueline Laurita - host Andy Cohen said:

"The reunion was Danielle's last appearance. We thought the hugs were a great way to end two seasons of bitterness between the women."

Evil Danielle

There will be fewer "prostitution whore" references on season three of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

The network has made contingency plans, of course. Melissa Gorga has been added to the cast already, much to the rumored chagrin of her sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice.

She hasn't even appeared on a single episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, yet Melissa Gorga is already causing tension.

The season three cast addition may be the sister-in-law of Teresa Giudice, but that doesn't mean Teresa is pleased about her inclusion on the show. In fact, it's quite the opposite.

"When Teresa got word that her sister-in-law was asked to be part of the show she said, ‘If she’s going to be on the show, then I’m not going to do it," a source told Radar Online. "Teresa and Melissa don’t get along... They don’t speak."

In other words: Bravo has struck ratings gold by adding Gorga to the cast.

Teresa Giudice might be leaving The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but her family will still be represented on season three of this Bravo hit.

Multiple sources confirm that Melissa Gorga, Teresa's sister-in-law, has joined the cast and is already being filmed by the network. She's actually the mother of the little boy that caused such controversy between Giudice and Danielle Staub on this week's reunion special.

One, big, happy, attention-craving family: Melissa Gorga poses alongside Teresa Giudice and relatives.

Gorga formerly served as the secretary for her husband when he was in the landscaping business. The family is far from poor, as a source tells Radar Online:
