Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub is clawing at costar Teresa Giudice after she spread a rumor that Staub might be kicked off their hit Bravo show.

Giudice recently told Steppin' Out magazine that the network is "trying to get rid of" Staub. "They want to phase her out," she said. "It doesn't make sense to have her on the show. We don't hang out with her. So what's the point?"

Au contraire, Staub tells "No truth to this or anything that comes out of that ignorant bitch's mouth."
