The Worst People in Reality TV History

23. Danielle Staub

As seen on: Real Housewives of New Jersey (2009-2010); Famous Food (2011)

Insufferable cast members aside, Real Housewives of New Jersey offers much in the way of entertainment. One of the most memorable (apart from the time Teresa flipped a table over): When cast member Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter, Ashlee, took it upon herself to yank a chunk of Danielle Staub’s weave right off her scalp, because she believed that Staub had assaulted her mother.

If you’ve never seen the show, the snap reaction would be to feel sorry for Staub, but hold that thought. Staub had been a crappy mother, regularly putting her own well-being over that of her two teen daughters’, and she was constantly taking up the entire show with her drama. Luckily, she’s faded into obscurity since leaving the show in 2010, but the scars left from her stint—and the recent sex tape floating around the Internet—have yet to fade away.
