18. Danielle Staub, Real Housewives of New Jersey (Bravo)
There are many Real Housewives with ridiculous personal lives, but only one has a sex tape and a prostitution arrest. That would be Danielle Staub. She was fired from Real Housewives of New Jersey after the second season, and her plans for a spinoff reality show never materialized.
If you think she doesn’t need a comeback, just read the details of her arrest. There’s FBI agents, high-end prostitutes, and $48,000 worth of coke. If she can’t get her own show, that could at least be a Lifetime movie.
