Before the X-rated footage of 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' star is released, stills from the tape have made their way to the web, showing the TV icon totally naked.
Images taken from Danielle Staub's soon-to-be released sex tape have made their way to the web. The graphics obtained by TMZ and the Blemish show the "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star totally naked with one shot showing her carrying a handy cam.
Hustler Inc. is set to release Staub's 75-minutes of X-rated footage on June 14. In the video, the Jersey's most hated Housewife is seen getting down with a mystery man. Hustler's rep claimed that the tape was shot in September 2009, several months after the mother of two first appeared on the Bravo reality show.
Although Staub or her rep hasn't given any comment on the scandal, Hustler's Director of Public Relations, Julie Messing, told E! Online that Staub knows about their move. Messing said, "She knows it's being released," adding that neither Staub nor the mystery man contacted them about the tape.
"It was shopped to Hustler by a production company that purchased the rights to the video. They purchased the tape legally from an undisclosed party, maybe a rep or an agent. They wanted us to be the distributor," Messing explained. "Obviously she is a very well-known character and she has stayed in the public eye for the longevity of that show... our recommendation as a team to Mr. Flynt was, 'yes, let's pursue this'."
Meanwhile, Danielle Staub's "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" co-star, Jacqueline Laurita, recently told TMZ that although she's "not surprised at all," she is "sickened" of Staub's sex tape drama. She said, "I'd be very happy if [Staub] left our show... Why doesn't she just leave and go do porn? Danielle has total disregard for how [the tape] will affect her daughters' impressionable years."
