Do the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" Have Mob Ties?

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" personality Danielle Staub Danielle Staub from the 'Real Housewives of New Jersey'is one of the only women on the Bravo show without rumored mob links - but those alleged mafia ladies may have nothing on her when it comes to crime ties.

Fans are all aflutter today over reports that Staub's mugshot may appear in a now out-of-print book called Cop Without a Badge: The Extraordinary Undercover Life of Kevin Maher.

The book, written by Charles Kipps, is described as the true story of an ex-conman turned criminal informant.

It was published in 1995 by Carroll & Graf, and is summarized on Amazon.com like this:

"Former FBI and Secret Service agent Kevin Maher describes the intervention that prevented him from following a life of crime and recounts his dangerous career in which he solved homicides, targeted the mafia, and fought in the drug war."

So where does Staub fit in?

Last night's show featured her throwing a spa party - the highlight for the Jersey gals was the free Botox injections - and sinking into a feud with rival housewife Dina Manzo, who talks trash about Staub's sexual history.

Next week's episode will apparently shed new light on Staub's connection to the book "Cop Without a Badge," which may or may not feature her mugshot, according to NJ.com.

Star Magazine has reported that Staub was arrested in early April at her home in Wayne, NJ in connection to financial issues surrounding her divorce settlement.
