Reality TV Stars Who Went Broke
While Danielle Staub's reality TV career was short-lived -- not a single star from "
Real Housewives of New Jersey" was sorry to see the drama queen leave after Season 2 of the show -- it seems she has some lingering relationships with debt collectors. This past May, she filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection, saying she was about $1 million in debt and listing 35 creditors, including American Express. Kind of ironic considering she bragged on the Bravo series that she was one of the first women in the Garden State to be issued an AmEx "black card."
