With each episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle Staub's behavior gets stranger and scarier. Tonight was no exception.

Even she seemed to realize it for a brief minute after she wildly ranted to herself about all the injustices she's suffered at the hands of the other Housewives. "I'm standing here talking to myself, wow, that's healthy!"

Kim G. finally showed a spine and questioned Danielle as to why she didn't speak up when her thug friend/bodyguard called Caroline's son "a faggot."

Staub, who calls herself a "gay advocate," says she was offended by the remark, but offered no real reason as to why she let it slide when just last season she went ballistic over Joe's utterance of the word "gay." 

Then there was the whole Internet war between Staub and Jacqueline's 18-year-old daughter Ashley. Danielle set out to get a restraining order after getting what she deemed a threatening text from the teen. She says Ashley's "We Don't Like Danielle Staub" Facebook page is "nothing short of terroristic" and compares it to the KKK.

As for the text, Danielle may have read a little too much into it. "Bye? Is 'bye' a threat?" she said of the way Ashley ended the text.

Ashley says Danielle has called her and her arms "fat." Ashley's boyfriend, Derek, summed Danielle up well: "She literally is like a 16-year-old trapped in a 47-year-old's body."

For some reason Dina felt the need to call Danielle and get together for some closure. Why they all don't just walk away and never look back, I don't understand. Well, except for the fact that if there was no Danielle drama, there would be no show.

Anyway, Danielle was hoping for an apology (but had her bodyguard standing by just in case she was ambushed), but Dina was there to tell her she wants her out of her life forever.

Voices were raised, and Dina apparently crossed a touchy line when she tried to "shush" Danielle.

"You can't shush me. Next time you shush me, expect me to speak louder!" she said ever-so-menacingly.

The hour was up, and the discussion is to be continued next week with teasers of conflict over Danielle's sex tape.

I think Caroline spoke for most of America when she said of Staub: "We don't want you in our lives. Go away."

What did you think of this weeks' episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey?
