According to a new tabloid report, Bravo has finally grown weary of Danielle Staub.
Despite the record ratings The Real Housewives of New Jersey has delivered this season, a source tells Life & Style that the show's most controversial star won't return in 2011.
"Danielle was told that she would not be returning for a third season," an insider said, describing the firing as "a complete shock" to Staub.
The nut job responded to this rumor by essentially confirming it. In a statement, she said: "I'm not even thinking about season 3 right now as I am considering many incredible options that have been presented to me... next year, I'll still be the one you either love to hate or hate to love."
Oh God, is she referring to a spin-off?!?
Although Staub delivers the sort of scandals and fights that reality TV executives crave, new, extremely sordid details about her drug-dealing past came to light last week.
Combined with a sex tape, there's only so much a network can ignore.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey concludes this season on August 23 - and then airs two more reunion specials on August 30 and September 6. If Staub really is being let go, Bravo will milk every last possible second of publicity it can out of her craziness.
Would you be sad to see Danielle fired?
