No more Danielle Staub drama!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres its third season Monday at 9 p.m. (EST) on Bravo, but it's a very different show without Staub, 48.
Jacqueline Laurita tells Us Weekly: "I think that was a little more dark, and now [we as a cast] have less of a fear of life. It's more like, 'Oh my God, what's my family member going to say about me?' because you're feuding with them."
She adds: "This drama went on before with Danielle but you couldn't see it because Danielle's drama overshadowed what was going on in our lives."
In the mix for season three are Teresa Giudice's cousin Kathy Wakile and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, whose family gets in a massive blowout with the Giudices on Monday's premiere.
