Bravo is cleaning house.
The network announced Monday that Danielle Staub, the firestarter on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," would not be returning the reality TV series.
Andy Cohen, Bravo's senior vice president of original programming and development who also hosts "The Real Housewives" reunion shows said the network "thought the hugs were a great way to end two seasons of bitterness between the women."
Throughout the chilly second season, Staub enraged Caroline Manzo, her sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita and family friend Teresa Giudice, but Staub seemed to make amends at the end of Monday's reunion episode with Laurita and Giudice.
