    New Jersey Housewives: Ratings Will Drop Without Me, Says Danielle Staub

    RHONJ, Danielle Staub Bravo

    We all know booted Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Star has a high opinion of herself.

    But does she really think the Garden State reality series will fail without her?

    "It's not going to have the ratings," Staub told us of the third season of Housewives while promoting her new upcoming VH1 reality show Famous Food. "I brought the [drama]. People either loved me or hated me, but they were paying attention. This [season] is just full out nasty family fighting. Everyone's got that. Where's the element of surprise there?"

    Staub insists she will watch "not a second" of RHONJ.

    "It was becoming nonproductive for me," she says. "I'm so much, so much more less stressed. I mean Bravo was amazing, the producers were amazing, but you know the cast, there's no resolve with them...I think it's time for everyone to see who truly the crazy ones are."

    But, of course, there's one thing that would lure her back to Housewives.

    "Money," she said. "Money, money, money."

    What did you think she was going to say—a free cannoli?
