Danielle Staub received shocking news about her bankruptcy case, but she probably shed tears of joy instead of misery. Radar Online reports on Thursday that the former star of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” heard a positive update from the judge. Her liens have been canceled, so she is no longer responsible for paying back $700,000.
Staub previously claimed she had $1.9 million in debt, and bankruptcy was the only option for her. She argued she could not pay the bills that included old taxes. After discharging her bankruptcy, the judge decided to forgive $700,000.
Staub is allegedly coming back to the “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” so a paycheck from Bravo may prevent new financial problems from appearing. However, the bankruptcy process has not been smooth, and she attempted to hide her assets at one point. Staub paid $35,000 and was able to avoid jail time, but she was carefully watched.
There are rumors that Dina Manzo and Teresa Giudice actually want her to return to the show, and fans have been wondering if Bravo is searching for a reason to have more tables flipped. Giudice famously flipped a table after an argument with Staub, so the network may feel her return could add more drama. Staub did not show sympathy for Giudice on her official Twitter account after fans mentioned karma hurting the star.
The controversial reality star was forced to defend herself because fans felt she was being too harsh on Twitter. Staub argued she did not involve the children and was simply responding to a fan. Staub desperately tried to fix the issue by posting other comments and claiming she only wanted love and light for Giudice. She also asked her fans to stop tagging her in the tweets about Giudice because it was creating problems.
