NJ Housewife Danielle Staub: ‘I’m a Member of the Gay Community’

NJ Housewife Danielle Staub follows up her performance on Watch What Happens Live, after which she played coy with Andy Cohen about her relationship with collaborator Lori Michaels, with a chat with FOX411 expressing her devotion to the gay community.


Boasts Staub:

“I haven’t even begun my work in the gay community yet. I want to go to senate, I want to pass a bill and get gay marriage legalized. I go to events, I march in rallies. I’ve been a part of the gay community for 30 years….I met Lori a year ago at a gay pride parade. I fell in love with her music, which deals a lot with the issue of equality. It was very organic for me, that performance."

Despite her love for the gay community, she'd like to exploit potentially being gay as long as possibly to draw attention to herself:

"I want that question mark there. If I’m suggesting something, people pay attention. A long time ago, I realized the power of my fame and that my work on Bravo has given me a voice. Women are going to talk about me, why not use my fame for awareness…Since birth, my daughters have been a part of the gay community. From teachers to friends, these are the people they are surrounded by. I don’t feel as comfortable around mainstream society as I do around that community. I don’t feel as comfortable around heterosexual people as I do around gay people…When I got arrested, my dear friends like Tommy (who is gay) were the ones who bailed me out. Now he is Uncle Tommy to the girls.”
