Now that sex tape actress Danielle Staub was possibly fired from Real Housewives of New Jersey she needs more attention than ever. She'll get plenty of negative attention for this performance of her dance single on a local news show!

Staub stopped by WPIX's PIX 11 Morning News program today with her recording partner (and maybe girlfriend) Lori Michaels and what appears to be a three-man dance troupe that they picked up in Union Square on the way to the studio. The only thing more awful and predictable than Danielle's psychotic behavior is how she is ripping off the career trajectory of Real Housewife of New York Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, complete with the sorry morning show appearance.

At least Staub can sing (marginally) better and brought her own brand of patented insanity. While warbling their song "Close to You," Staub and Michaels were wearing "Danielle's Mafia" T-shirts, probably in response to last night's season finale where she sat down for a frank (and hilariously fraught) conversation with fellow Real Housewife Caroline Manzo. Of course Danielle couldn't do her little dog and pony show before sitting down and talking about her "dialect" with Caroline. Danielle may be dangerously monomaniacal and delusional, but she sure knows how to bring the crazy. We sure are going to miss this bird.
