'Real Housewives NJ' Danielle Staub's ex: She was cocaine addict, paid escort

Last week, Zap2it presented "Real Housewives of New Jersey's" Danielle Staub a $5 million challenge from ex-husband Kevin Maher. Staub's ex, subject of the book "Cop Without a Badge" that resurfaced on Season 1 of the show, passed a lie detector test and challenged her to do the same.

If Staub passes, he says he would drop his $5 million lawsuit, which charges the Bravo reality star with defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress for statements she allegedly made about him in an interview for People Magazine. At this time, Staub hasn't accepted his challenge and her attorney has no comment.

Nevertheless, Maher wants to make sure that everyone knows the truth and wants to dispel further lies he claims Staub has told around her 1986 arrest on eight charges including extortion, cocaine possession and narcotics conspiracy.
