Danielle Staub’s Breakdown: Former Reality Star Quits Stripping, Seeks Mental Help

Published

on

Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub has taken a much needed step back from her desperately flamboyant life and sought psychiatric help.

The celebreality star, at 48, had been ousted from the Housewives series (because apparently they love the drama and chaos, but even they have a limit!) and subsequently started a ‘singing’ career and announced she was a lesbian (which many thought may have been a questionable publicity stunt).  

But the final straw in her desperate 15 minutes of fame came last week when it was reported that she had taken a gig as a stripper for famed strip club Scores. Staub signed a contract to make live appearances, as well as show up on ScoresLive.com.

Then, nude photos of her showed up all over the internet, and she panicked. Access Hollywood is reporting that she is now seeking treatment for psychological problems rooted in childhood sexual abuse.

Apparently the mental she is getting is from celebrity shrink Dr. Drew Pinsky.

Staub told People: 

“I have addictions with love and low self-esteem, and I need help! My low self-esteem derived from childhood sexual abuse has messed with my mind and self-worth… For years I have had the suicide hotline on my cell phone and would like nothing more than to free myself from this constant pressure. Seeing how I have hurt myself and my family this time. I can no longer push it behind me.”

You can’t help but take a step back at the reality TV phenomenon and consider that shows often seek out ‘big’ personalities, which often come in the form of slightly damaged people – to make ‘good television.’ But getting caught up in the twisted world that is entertainment, it truly does start to mess with your mind. The fickleness, the ‘one minute you’re hot, next you’re not’ mentality, and the sad truth that your personality is ultimately a product that can be bought and sold, and eventurally returned.

Sometimes you have to wonder which came first, the breakdown or the notoriety. In this case, it seems Staub acknowledges that her issues began years ago. Whether an addiction to the attention that comes with tv exposure (and the sense of loss that comes with losing popularity) in any way fueled the personal insecurities can’t be proven, but seems almost inevitable.

It’s easy for many to laugh off the dramas of reality tv train wrecks, but ultimately, she’s a human being whose got things to work out. I wish her the best.

Courteney Cox’s Instagram Caption Is Every Parent With A Teenage Kid

Published

on

Have you heard? It’s 2020 and we’re all supposed to music videos on TikTok. Courteney Cox is no exception. The TV star posted an instagram of her and her daughter Coco dancing it out, with the hilarious caption, “Wanna see your child lose their patience? Do a TikTok with them.”

Also, how long does it take to actually learn one of these routines? It seems very time consuming.

What I was really hoping for was video of her daughter losing her patience, but what we got was a pretty strong routine!

Caught On Tape

Former Law And Order Actress Representing Herself In Court? Diane Neal Claims Her Attorneys In Abuse Case Dropped Her, Leaving Her To Fend For Herself

Published

on

In an emotional, now deleted instagram post, actress Diane Neal claims her attorneys have dropped her – leaving the actress who once played assistant district attorney Casey Nowak to try her hand at being an attorney in real life.

Neal has been embroiled in a vicious legal battle that has spanned more than two years. It began when Neal filed a lawsuit alleging her ex, magician JB Benn, was a “manipulative and maniacal fraudster,” who had “defrauded her of millions” and “violently inflicted emotional distress,” according to The Daily Beast. She claims Benn subjected her to “a campaign of isolation, terror and (physical and sexual) assault, and destroyed her reputation.” She also claims he once cut her dogs throat. In turn, Benn has a lawsuit against Neal, claiming she owes him money for property they shared, and that she frequently threatened him. Part of his case: a damning recording in which the female voice, which he claims is Neal, threatens him and his dog. Listen to that tape HERE. It’s intense.

The truth is, the story is so full of battling accusations that it’s probably best to read the FULL list chronicled in this Oxygen article.

But today, in an emotional instagram post which she later deleted, (but copies have which have been retained and posted) a dramatic turn. Neal claims her attorneys have dropped her with no warning.

She speaks directly to her camera phone, saying, “So this is my version of hell. And there he is walking right past me right there” she says, referencing a man whose face cannot be seen. “So, I have been put in a situation by my own attorneys who decided to drop me as a client yesterday afternoon with absolutely no warning, wherein I have to represent myself in court. Because this is what happens to victims of abuse. My attorney yesterday accused me of having an inappropriate relation with (unintelligible**), which is not at all even remotely, a thousand times not true. Has done all kinds of things and … saying it was my fault for being abused. So wish me luck. It’s terrifying, but I am doing this for every woman who can’t do it for themselves. I stand for all of us.”

**please note that the words here were difficult to make out. We have our interpretations but don’t want to speculate without confirmation.

It’s unclear what the nature of the current court hearing is intended to cover today.
