Was Danielle a Plant on 'Real Housewives'?

Danielle Staub

It seems like the gals on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" have been frenemies for years, but was drama queen Danielle Staub planted to stir up trouble in Franklin Lakes?

"Extra" went straight to the source! Castmate Caroline Manzo tells "Extra," "I think Bravo hit the crazy jackpot!" Caroline says they go to the same salon, but she never met Danielle and "knew nothing about her prior to the show."

Part One of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" reunion airs tonight on Bravo.
