casio080210x.jpg Bravo has confirmed that Danielle Staub has officially left the cast of Real Housewives of New Jersey. Sadness!

Despite her squabbles with the entire cast, Staub shared an awkward hug with co-star Jacqueline Laurita last night on the second part of the reunion episode, and host Andy Cohen wrote on the blog shortly thereafter, "The reunion was Danielle's last appearance. We thought the hugs were a great way to end two seasons of bitterness between the women."

So what will she do next? After releasing her single "Real Close" it looks like she's eager to make a move into the music business. Maybe she could get tips from Ashley Dupre?
