Danielle Staub has been starring in a part-time role on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," for the series' last two seasons, but according to a new report, her role on season nine that premieres in November, has been seriously cut back due to her alleged feud with full-time cast member Margaret Josephs. On September 27, All About the Tea spoke to an insider who suggested footage of Staub had been removed from season nine due to Joseph's friendship with Bravo TV producer Dorothy Tran.

"[Margaret Josephs] is super tight with [Dorothy Tran]. They meet for coffee almost every morning at the Starbucks in Englewood [New Jersey].

[Danielle Staub] also goes to that same Starbucks — Dorothy and Margaret turn their heads and pretend they don’t see her,” a spy at Starbucks revealed to the outlet.

Dorothy Tran was once 'Team Danielle'

Although Tran was reported on "Team Danielle" in the past, she sided with Josephs after Josephs and Staub engaged in a cast feud. As for why Tran would do so, the source said the Bravo TV production team has been known to side with Josephs because they appreciate her alleged willingness to do whatever she's told. “Production loves [Margaret Josephs] because she is desperate to stay on the show and will do anything," the insider explained. "She is broke and now trying to push a luggage line. [Margaret] needs the money desperately.”

While many fans of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" believed Danielle Staub would ultimately be upgraded from part-time to full-time, All About the Tea said she doesn't stand a chance at increasing her role now that she is on the outs with Tran.

In fact, in addition to erasing all chances at an upgraded role, Staub's feud with Josephs has led Tran to cut off contact with Staub completely.

As Staub reportedly remains on the outs with her production team, Bravo TV has allegedly not scheduled any press for the longtime reality star and when it comes to her cast confessionals, Staub isn't expected to have any during season nine. She's also expected to be seen in fewer scenes than she actually filmed.

Teresa Giudice is in Danielle's corner

Danielle Staub may be on the outs with Margaret Josephs, but she's super tight with Teresa Giudice, who feels she can rely on Staub more than anyone else. “Teresa considers Danielle family," the insider said. "They act like sisters now."
