Danielle Staub is speaking out for the first time about her newly surfaced sex tape.
She isn't embarrassed about the footage -- which features her naked and frolicking with an unidentified man.
She said she initially tried to prevent Hustler Inc. from selling it.
"Then I just decided, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em," said Staub. "What am I left to do? This isn't something I chose to have released, but it's out there, and there's nothing I can do about it."
She said she even hopes her tape outsells one made by fellow reality star Kendra Wilkinson.
"I haven't seen hers. I haven't seen mine, either, but ... if it's going to do anything, I would hope it does better," she said. See more celebrity news.
Is she worried what the other Housewives think?
Said Staub, "I don't care what they say about me!"
