Danielle's sex tape, Danielle Staub Raw, was released to the public on June 14, 2010.
In 2010, Danielle released a book titled The Naked Truth: The Real Story Behind the Real Housewife of New Jersey-In Her Own Words.
Danielle: I'm very hopeful and optimistic about love. I know through this journey of writing my book how hard it was going to be, but I also knew there was going to be a lot of light at the end of the tunnel. The light for me is I really fell in love with myself in a very spiritual way, and I think through loving myself I realize how that feels, how it's supposed to feel. Now I can be loved the right way.

Danielle: I try to tell them whatever is going on is going to be filmed. Always try to remember that you might not like something that you're going to say … you can't take it back.
Danielle: My sex tape did nothing but hurt me. To anyone who is 19 and thinks he or she has it all figured out, please sweetie, think again. It is going to do nothing for you at 19 than hurt the rest of your life. Become famous the way your destiny permits you to. It will hurt the people who love you and it will hurt you in the end.
Danielle: Even thought my happiness is based on love and not material items I'm so blessed to have two amazing daughters who are extremely thoughtful and generous!
Danielle: I've been part of the gay community for thirty years. The gay community is the one place, in all honestly, that I've ever truly felt safe and loved for just being me. Nobody ever cared where I've been, what I've done. They just let me be me.
Danielle: You either love me or you hate me, there is no in between.
Danielle: Why do these women not want to be around me, yet all they do is talk about me, tweet about me, Facebook about me, hire people to tweet about me and Facebook about me? And even have all their kids doing the same thing? It's a disgusting waste of time.
