Has Bravo handed a pink slip to Real Housewives of New Jersey's Danielle Staub?

Fuhgeddaboutit! Well, sort of.

On Monday, Staub, 48, spoke about new reports that she was fired from the series, and won't be returning for season three.

"Actually, I'm not even thinking about season 3 right now as I am considering many incredible options that have been presented to me," she says in a statement released to UsMagazine.com.

"Right now I just want to let fans know that we have a fantastic finale coming up next week and explosive reunion shows on August 30 and September 6," adds the controversial star, a sworn enemy to fellow remaining housewives Teresa Giudice, Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita. (Dina Manzo left the show in the middle of the second season after repeated battles with Staub.)

"Don't worry," Staub insists, "next year, I'll still be the one you either love to hate or hate to love."

A rep for Bravo wouldn't directly address the report of Staub's potential departure either, telling Us, "We're focused on season 2 right now…We haven't announced anything regarding a third season."
