The exciting rumor has becoming an even more exciting reality:
Danielle Staub is on her way back to Bravo!!!!!!!
The reality star, arguably the most controversial cast member in the history of that network, will reportedly appear on the upcoming season of The Real Housewivs of New Jersey.
Both Us Weekly and E! News have confirmed that Staub will stop by for at least one episode of the popular show, which is scheduled to return with new episodes later this year.
No one at Bravo has commented on these reports, but Andy Cohen did acknowledge in December that there have been "discussions" between producers and Staub.
For those unfamiliar with Danielle Staub...
... holy Hell, are you in for a treat?!?
The Z-Lister was notorious back in the day for her feud with Teresa Giudice, a rivalry that culminated in what many believe was the most memorable moment in Bravo history:
Giudice flipping over a table and labeling Staub a "prostitution whore."
In case you need a refresher, sit back and enjoy:
Late last year, however, Staub and Giudice reunited over yoga, sharing a photo on social media that teased the former's return to the franchise that made her semi-famous.
"We reconnected and it has been so natural and great,” Staub said soon after the photo went viral, adding:
“Today was the first time I have seen her in all these years. She reached out to me a few weeks ago to talk and catch up on our families."
But even if Teresa and Danielle are now best buds, have no fear:
Staub had plenty of enemies during her time in New Jersey.
Jacqueline Laurita's daughter, Ashley Holmes, for example, once ripped out Staub's hair extensions.
She also worked as a stripper... starred in a sex tape... and earned the #9 spot in the THG Celebrity of the Year rankings back in 2010.
We strongly urge you to visit our friends at TV Fanatic and watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online in order to relive Staub's fights and antics.
Staub only stuck around for two seasons on the series, telling Us Weekly the following in September of 2010, in regard to leaving:
"I think it's time for me to move on and upward. I don't see any interest for me to be attacked like that."
In the seven years since she left the program, the Staub has released an autobiography, "The Naked Truth," and appeared on the VH1 series Famous Food.
A mother of two, Staub is dating a 65-year-old businessman named Marty Caffrey.
Asked by E! News last year if she wanted to appear opposite Staub on television again, Giudice didn't hesitate.
"I've never had a problem with her, I would love for her to come back," Teresa said. "My thing is, I said what I had to say and that was it. It never went beyond that."
Bravo is yet to announce a premiere date for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Seasn 8.
But E! News has also learned Teresa will return for the upcoming season, as will her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and season seven additions Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania.
