From a heated exchange between Perez Hilton and that led to a rumble, to another Real Housewives of New Jersey star hating Danielle Staub, to Terrell Owens being told off by a Playboy model, this week had some quality celeb feuds.

Oh, and don't forget Mark Sanford feuding ... with brainpower and morals during his affair with Maria Belen Chapur. Side note: Jon and Kate Gosselin have been removed from this list, as their "feud" ended in divorce. So it's over. With no winner.

A Republican strategist who is now representing The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub says she has not ruled out running for U.S. Congress.

According to Garden State political insiders, Staub is mulling a bid to challenge U.S. Rep Bill Pascrell (D-Paterson), in the November 2010 election.

"At this point Ms. Staub is fielding numerous offers and has ruled out nothing," Thomas Ammirato said. "Her advisors will be discussing her future shortly."

Ammirato, who does political PR work, says he threw out that very possibility to Danielle Staub, but probably doesn't expect to see her on any ticket.

"I don't see that happening," Ammirato told the Newark Star-Ledger. "It would be the longest of political longshots ... unless there's a huge groundswell."

Well, The Real Housewives of New Jersey does get high ratings ...

Before you write Danielle off and say she is "completely unqualified to run for office" in New Jersey, consider that she already has a criminal record, so she's got that going for her. Her hobbies include lying, gossip and sex in public.

Check, check and check!

Besides, after Ashley Dupre, Rielle Hunter and now Maria Belen Shapur, how bad could Steve Zalewski possibly hurt her? And come on, as if people running for office in this country haven't been labeled much worse than "prostitution whore."

The one potential snag for Danielle Staub? No, not her sex tape, which she blocked in court yesterday. She isn't even registered to vote in New Jersey.

Neither is Beverly Merrill, for that matter.

Score one for Danielle Staub.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star has temporarily stopped her ex-boyfriend Steve Zalewski from releasing a sex tape he supposedly has of them.

Wednesday, a judge ordered an injunction banning the release of sexually explicit footage featuring the troubled Staub, 46, and the shady Zalewski, 27.

Her attorney, Darren Del Sardo, said in a statement:

"We went to court in order to prohibit distribution of any tape or photograph and to temporarily restrain him from doing that, and we were successful."

The Danielle Staub sex tape was completely "unauthorized" and was "taken with his cellphone," according to the embattled prostitution whore.

Real Housewives of N.J.

HIT HOUSEWIVES: Bravo's latest band of rich nut jobs has hit the big time as Danielle and the wives make the cover of Jon and Kate Gosselin Weekly ... er, Us Weekly.

The sworn enemy of Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo, Staub has confronted one huge scandal after another since The Real Housewives of New Jersey debuted.

Staub - who was present at court Wednesday - has filed a lawsuit against Steve Zalewski, claiming that he is trying to get back at her after she dumped him.

Danielle Staub, whose coke whore past was revealed in great detail earlier, is accusing him invasion of privacy, defamation and infliction of emotional distress.

The most hated woman in the Garden State was allegedly involved in a kidnapping plot that grew out of a botched cocaine deal, and worked as an escort.

If The Real Housewives of New Jersey's table-flipping finale and the show's subsequent reunion special didn't satisfy your Danielle Staub fix, this ought to.

The Smoking Gun has unearthed a 26-page manifesto on Staub's 1986 arrest, which was mentioned in Kevin Maher's 1995 memoir, Cop Without A Badge.

Also known as "THE BOOK."

Some of the highlights shedding new light on Staub's coke-whore past:

  • When Danielle Staub was living in Miami in 1986, she worked as an escort and went by Angela Minelli. One of Danielle's johns was Daniel Claudio Aguilar.
  • Daniel, of course, was a major cocaine dealer for the Colombian drug cartels. In June of that year, Daniel sold two kilos of coke for $48,000 to some guys.
  • Danielle's neighbor, Carmen Centolella, brokered the deal. Before the deal was final, Daniel sent Danielle to Carmen's pad with a kilo of coke for "testing."
  • The dudes who were going to buy the coke turned on Danielle, stole the drugs and took off. Daniel blamed Carmen, beat his ass and held him for ransom.
  • Danielle Staub was in on the kidnapping and made several calls to Carmen's father demanding $25,000 for his son's life. Carmen's dad called the FBI.
  • They traced calls back to Daniel's apartment and they found Danielle.

  • They arrested Danielle Staub and confiscated $16,000 cash and six kilos of coke.
  • They also busted Daniel. To save herself, Danielle turned on Daniel and agreed to work with prosecutors. She pleaded guilty to one count of extortion.
  • When Danielle Staub got out of jail, she received several threatening phone calls. One from a lady who said, "Your life is at an end, honey." Danielle and the authorities both believed the threats were coming from Daniel's people.
  • Danielle's apartment was also broken into several times. During Daniel's trial, his lawyers pained Danielle as a prostitution whore. So to speak.
  • Daniel was found guilty and sent to prison. He got out in 1994.
  • When Danielle came off of probation in 1988, a doctor asked the court to keep her in a rehab program due to her drug history and lifestyle.

Wow. Combine all this with offering oral sex to random strangers and you wonder why Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo don't wanna be associated with her.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey concluded its first season last week with an epic fight in which Danielle Staub was labeled a "prostitution whore," among other things, while nearly having a table flipped onto her by an enraged Teresa Giudice.

The classy ladies will reunite Tuesday night on Bravo for a post-mortem. In anticipation of the drama to come, Caroline Manzo and Danielle Staub spoke out separately to discuss their feud. All the N.J. wives seem to feud with Danielle.

Where They Stand

Caroline Manzo: She’s invisible to me. I never had a relationship with her and I will never have a relationship with her. She’s a pathological liar. She is manipulative. She is an opportunist. She has no conscience. She has no morals.

Danielle Staub: If you’re going to call me a pathological liar, challenge me. I’m a human being, and on the inside my heart aches just like theirs. Just because there’s so many of them that doesn’t mean that their pain is more important than mine.

Who Is Lying?

Danielle Staub: I have a big problem with Caroline. I think that she’s a big bully. She’s lying. And I don’t understand her motives. Protecting your sister is one thing, but what exactly are you protecting her from?

Caroline Manzo: A lot of people are upset with me for “lying for my sister.” I didn’t lie for my sister. That’s not who I am. And there’s no truth to that at all. If Dina showed that book, I would have let her fight her own battle. So, Danielle, sorry to disappoint you.

Danielle Staub's sordid past was the subject of an amazing fight on Monday's finale. Now it looks like it may continue to haunt her - sex tape style!

Steve Zalewski claims he has videos of The Real Housewives of New Jersey star performing sex acts - on him and on herself - and may sell them.

Danielle's O-Face

Her ex-boyfriend, 27, whom Danielle dated and dumped on the Bravo reality hit last week, says the 46-year-old Staub was a raging nymphomaniac.

"Not only does she want to have sex all the time, but she loves the thrill of doing it in public places, where she might get caught," he says.

"She wanted to make love in restaurant bathrooms every time we went out — she'd get excited and say, 'The people can hear you doing it outside!'"

Danielle Staub and Steve Zalewski had a good run. A sex-filled one.

Other locales in which Steve Zalewski porked Danielle Staub include the back patio of her home, in cars, at a police firing range (!?) and a crowded park.

But the two went through a bad breakup, fueled in large part by Staub's penchant for borrowing large sums of money from him, Zalewski says:

"She tries to look affluent. But she couldn't pay the household bills or buy food. Even then, she'd want to borrow 20 grand from me to buy jewelry!"

Now Steve is turning to the best possible way of recouping some of his cash: distributing a Danielle Staub sex tape - or tapes! to the top bidder.

"I'm definitely weighing my options as far as getting it out there," Zalewski said. "She cost me so much money, why shouldn't I make a few dollars?"

Why on earth would Danielle Staub think of bringing "The Book" to dinner on Tuesday night's season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey?

Simply put, the producers told her to she felt it was the perfect time to stick up for herself and to encourage serious ratings others to do the same.

Serene Staub

"I have a lot of people emailing me in a real positive light and saying they're looking to me for courage to stop bullying," Danielle told E! regarding an epic Real Housewives of New Jersey finale that will go down in reality TV history.

"It's about confronting people when you have an issue you want to address. The message is to build fame each other up, not tear each other apart."

Here's an interesting revelation: Danielle's daughters not only knew about the dinner surprise, they insisted on staying for the final showdown.

"They felt that I had every right to address the issues," Staub said. "My kids deserved to see how Mommy was going to grow from this and move forward. My children need to learn from that, and that is why they wanted to stay in the room."

Danielle still isn't completely convinced that it was Caroline Manzo - and not her sister, Dina - who initially spread gossip about her super shady past.

"I really don't care at this point," she said. "I think if it was [Caroline], I might be completely surprised; I would be shocked, to be honest with you."

As for Teresa Giudice's now legendary table-flipping, no apologies have been exchanged. Even so, things aren't that bad between them.

"She's actually the nicest out of anyone to me," Danielle Staub said.

Next up for Danielle? Well, she's pumped to do a second season, plus she's got herself an agent. They're already talking to publishers about  (what else?) a book.

Last night on the epic season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice went absolutely nuclear, flipping over a table and berating co-star Danielle Staub as a "prostitution whore," among other choice adjectives.

In front of several of the cast members' children, too. Awesome.

There's a bunch of back story here, most of it involving Danielle's coke whore past and "the book" that describes it in detail, but that's really secondary.

You don't have to be a Real Housewives of New Jersey devotee to appreciate the insanity below, in which Teresa Guidice flips the f*%k out on Danielle Staub, who one gets the impression was told to show up by Bravo producers with this in mind.

This clip should do wonders for the Garden State's reputation:

Tough break for Danielle Staub.

She lands a role on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, only for her past to suddenly be dug up and her former life of drugs, sex and kidnapping to be exposed in front of a national audience. What unfortunate timing!

Danielle Staub Naked

Now, days after Bravo aired an episode that focused on Staub's shady past as a stripper named "Beverly Merrill," the author of Cop Without a Badge, the book that started it all, is speaking out.

From knife-wielding and cocaine-snorting to reality TV, it's been quite a journey for Danielle Staub.

According to Kevin Maher, an ex-con turned police informant, Danielle lived as an escort, stripper and drug addict in the 1980s; she was also arrested on felony kidnapping and extortion charges by the FBI.

“She’s very smart, and when she wants something, she’s one of the most determined women in the world,” Maher told Star Magazine. “But she’s also a pathological liar. I believe she’s been psychologically scarred since childhood, and when you live that kind of life, you have to be a liar.”

Now a private investigator, Maher says he and Staub met at a party in Miami and proceeded to have sex in a bathroom. But the relationship didn't last because she once slashed his arm with a knife and continually cheated on him.

Then again, he can't really blame her for the latter incidents. After all, Maher labels his ex as a"raging nymphomaniac."

On last night's edition of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle Staub opened up about her past. Sort of. Kind of. Okay, not really.

The cast member sat down and said she was ready to discuss "the book."

But then didn't really respond to allegations in Cop Without a Badge, the 1995 memoir that claims Staub used to go by the moniker "Beverly Merril" and was a cocaine-addicted stripper with an arrest record for extortion.

Watch the video after the jump and judge for yourself:
