Heated words were exchanged, pricey weaves were pulled and Danielle Staub left “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” after two seasons – and Bravo producer and “Housewives” reunion moderator Andy Cohen tells Access Hollywood the cast for Season 3 has still not yet been determined.
“We’re focusing right now on Season 3 of New Jersey; we know that Danielle will not be a part of that, all else is to be determined,” The “Housewives” guru told Access on Tuesday. “We haven’t begun production on Season 3 and can’t really speculate who’s going to be a part of it.”
When asked about a New York Post Page Six report that Teresa Giudice could also be exiting the hit Bravo series because she wants more money, Andy told Access, “I don’t know… everybody wants more money.”
As for exiting “Housewife,” Danielle, the reality vixen told Us Magazine that she’s hopefully moving on to bigger and better things.
“I’m way too good for this,” the 48-year-old told the mag. “They have used me about as much as I can be used.”
The “love and light” enthusiast hopes her idea of a spin-off show for herself sees the light of day.
“I want my own show,” she told the mag. “I want to be me now. Not me according to other people… a spin-off is absolutely, positively where I’m going.”
According to Danielle, she was responsible for the series’ success.
“The bottom line is, they need me, I don’t need them. They don’t talk about anything but me. I don’t talk about them, at all. I talk about me too!” she added. “I have no need for them in my life. They have a great need for me to make the show successful. I made it successful.”
When contacted by Access, a rep for Bravo said, “We haven’t made any other announcements regarding casting. Only that the show is coming back for a 3rd season without Danielle.”
