‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ season 5: Is Danielle Staub returning?

Even though the latest season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” really just happened to end a matter of a few short days ago, we are already starting to see some of the latest (and craziest) rumors about the future of the show popping up all over the place. So what’s one of the craziest ones? That somehow, we could end up seeing Danielle Staub grace the show again despite all of the madness that went down with her back when the show was in the thick of season 2.

Speaking recently to TMZ, Staub claimed that she has recently had a meeting with Bravo’s master of the universe in Andy Cohen to discuss all sorts of things, and the New Jersey reality show was really just one of the subjects that came up during the discussion. If this does somehow happen, we have a feeling that it will be a pretty divisive issue for many of the ladies on the show, who may already be trying to figure out whether or not they really want to stick around to deal with all of this after we have witnessed so much drama in the past two years along even without Staub on board.

At the end of the day, we’re still pretty skeptical about this. Even if Staub and Cohen did have a meeting, it does not in any way guarantee that we are going to see any more of her on the show moving forward than we have seen from her in the past; ultimately, this may have been Cohen’s way of just interviewing every possible candidate and just trying to figure out what direction he wants to take with the show next. We do know that something does need to change, though, as the reunion this season really just became three hours of women forgetting how to use their inside voice.

What do you think: is there any way you would support Staub coming back? If you want to hear what Caroline Manzo has to say about the future of the show, all you have to do is head on over to the link here.
