Her ex-husband, Kevin Maher, tells Zap2it his attorneys will file a lawsuit against Staub, her book's alleged ghost writer and its publisher, Simon & Schuster within the next two weeks for "lies" found in her book, "The Naked Truth." And her ex-boyfriend, Steve Zalewski, has filed a defamation and harassment suit against the housewife for alleged lies she told surrounding the sex tape they made together.

According to Maher, the two men hoped their suits would hit together. "Steve and I were working together," he tells us. "We wanted to sue her on both coasts at the same time, but my lawyer was too busy and Steve beat us to it."

In January, Maher's attorneys sent Simon & Schuster a letter. It informed them that he was suing Staub in Los Angeles County Superior Court and that if the book contained anything untrue about him, he would pursue legal actions against them, too.
