Who is Beverly Ann Merrill?

Who is Beverly Ann Merrill? The reality TV world knows her as Danielle Staub. Staub is an American television personality, author,[2] singer [3] best known for her appearance on the Bravo reality series Real Housewives of New Jersey.[4] and adult performer. [5]

Staub was July 29, 1962. During the first season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, participants in the reality show confronted Staub with Charles Kipps's book Cop Without a Badge, which recounts events surrounding an undercover FBI informer Kevin Maher, one of Staub's former husbands, including an account of Staub's arrest.[6] Known at the time as Beverly Ann Merrill, Staub cooperated with authorities and received five years probation.[7][6] Although Staub has acknowledged that she was arrested in June of 1986, [8] she denies many of the other allegations made by Maher.[6] Staub's autobiographical book, The Naked Truth, was released on May 25, 2010,[9] and in it she claims that her arrest was a matter of "wrong place/wrong time".[10]
Staub has also received media attention for a sex tape which was stolen from her (according to Staub) or which was deliberately released by Staub (according to an unnamed source quoted by Jacqueline Laurita). [11]Some have guessed that perhaps Staub was behind the tape, because she has had some financial problems recently and mounting court fees might be a good enough reason for her to release a sex tape on her own. The tape was reportedly purchased by Hustler, Inc. That revelation comes as a bit of a surprise because Vivid Entertainment has been the prominent company when it comes to purchasing celebrity sex tapes that are leaked.
In September 2010, she appeared on the Style Network's comedy program, The Dish. She acted in several sketches, including a surprise cold open where she tried to take over as the show's host after leaving the real presenter, Danielle Fishel, bound and gagged backstage. The appearance gained media attention after one particular sketch which some say was a parody of Staub's castmate Teresa Guidice by portraying her as a monkey.[12]
After weeks of speculation, it was confirmed by Bravo that Staub would not be returning to the show for season 3. The reason for her departure was unannounced.[13]
In June 2010, her Wayne, New Jersey home, which had been featured on the Real Houswives, was put up for sale.[14]
In 2011, Staub, along with Heidi Montag of The Hills and Jake Pavelka of The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love, began filming an upcoming food-related reality series for VH1, in which they are said to be "revamping a restaurant from the ground up." [15] May 2011, she signed a 3 year deal with Scores Gentleman's Club as a fully nude stripper and star in adult online content.[16][17] [18]

  Staub has two children, and has ran into a number of problems with the law in the past months. She has previously been charged with extortion and cocaine possession.
