Danielle Staub may not be living near her Real Housewives of New Jersey costars anymore, but she says one of them is still in touch.

But they're not exactly exchanging pleasantries...

"Dina [Manzo] texts me," Staub told me the other day. "Yep, Dina—who's not even on the Housewives anymore. She's hanging for dear life. Shut the f--k up, Dina!"


"She's threatening me," Staub claimed. "She's an idiot. I don't answer them."

Manzo begs to differ. "I left for a reason to get her out of my life," she said. "I wish she would just do the same and move on."

Staub also said that she was hospitalized during season two when she was writing her autobiography, The Naked Truth. She said rehashing her troubled younger years took a toll on her. "I got to write my book, which was extremely healing and difficult, but there were times when I just got sick," she said. "When you're I was hospitalized for three days, but for three months I was very ill. It was all my intestines and my head hurt. I didn't feel good."

But now, despite last season's hair-tugging drama and raucous reunion, Staub insists she's all good. HollywoodLife.com reported this morning that she's signed on to host Social, a Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous-like show for WealthTV.

"I think I'm better than them," she said referring to the other Housewives. "They think they're better than me by calling me garbage? Um, no! And I am way, way more comfortable with myself than any of them will ever be—collectively."
