If ever Danielle Straub gets kicked out of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, at least she has a career to fall back on. A quick IMDB search on the most controversial New Jersey housewife doesn't reveal anything other than her stint on the Bravo reality show but the SoapNet has dug up something interesting about 46-year-old mother of two.

Evidently, Staub took a stab at daytime TV in the days when "the book" and her alleged sex tape were still under wraps. In the 2001 episode of ABC's All My Children, Staub shared a scene with Fergie's husband Josh Duhamel, who played Leo du Pres and was a regular on the soap from 1999 to 2002.

Staub played a sexy Italian woman with a name pronounced "Mow-ra" who spoke with Leo (Duhamel) and Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). You can view the clip posted on
