Troubled troublemaker Danielle Staub was "shocked" to learn she wasn't being asked back for a third season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

A source said when Staub, who has alienated every other housewife on the show, found out, it “came as a complete shock, and she thought she was definitely going to return to the successful Bravo series," reports Life & Style.

A rep for Bravo says “Bravo does not comment on casting of upcoming seasons of Housewives while current seasons are still airing."
