[Optional] Why do you think she is doing this?
Reality Star: Danielle Staub of Real Housewives of New Jersey

Well, she is engaged AGAIN!
This time, Danielle Staub and her breasts are engaged to a man she just started dating a couple of weeks ago!
And he’s not just any man. This one has a title. And that means that Danielle may soon be called… Duchess Danielle!
RHONJ’s Danielle Staub Is Engaged a Week After Divorce — and She’s Going to Be a Duchess!
Danielle Staub is walking down the aisle again!
A week after her divorce from husband Marty Caffrey was finalized, PEOPLE can exclusively report the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 56, has a new fiancé: Oliver Maier!
The pair got engaged early Thursday morning while on a tropical getaway to the Cheval Blanc maison in St. Barth. They’re planning on flying back to the states to pick up her ring at Van Cleef, and saying their “I dos” on Monday at a ceremony at the Justice of the Peace in New York City, surrounded by friends including Staub’s pal and RHONJ costar Teresa Giudice.
“I’m madly in love,” Staub tells PEOPLE. “I’m feeling elated and excited for the next stage of my life. I’m going to marry the man of my possible dreams and hopefully I’ll spend the rest of my life in bliss.”
Maier, who is German and French, works as the managing director of Speyside Equity, a private equity firm based out of New York City.
But he tells PEOPLE he’s also the Duke of Provence, something Staub says she didn’t know about until recently. Maier says his family owns 15 vineyards in the South of France as well as two castles. Their marriage would mean that Staub would become a duchess.
News of Staub and Maier’s relationship broke Monday, when she shared a photo of them kissing on Nikki Beach in front of a rainbow.
The two had met in October through a mutual friend whom Maier was dating at the time, though didn’t start their romance until this month after sharing a passionate smooch at the Baccarat hotel.
It was far from love at first sight for Staub. “I quite frankly couldn’t stand him when I first met him,” Staub jokes, explaining that she took some time to get used to the blunt characteristics of Maier’s personality. “He’s so strong-willed, and at first, I read that as rude, and arrogant and entitled. It wasn’t until I got to know him that I saw the other side.”
So they’ve been dating approximately two weeks. And they’re getting married. And she’s going to have a title.
It’s all too funny.
However, if she can get this engagement/marriage to stick, she is definitely going to get promoted from “friend” to “full-time cast member” on RHONJ!
By the way, this is Staub’s fourth marriage and 21st engagement.
No, we’re not kidding.
Congratulations to YourPRisajoke for being first with the correct response!

Danielle Staub & Oliver Maier Split
After Wild Pre-Wedding Video Is ExposedThat was fast!Danielle Staub and Oliver Maier have called it quits on their wedding just days after RadarOnline.com released bombshell video of the RHONJ star’s fiance getting “blackout drunk” during a wild beach romp in St. Barth over the weekend.
Multiple sources confirmed the breakup news to US Weekly, adding the pair cancelled their date to get married at the Justice of the Peace in New York City on Monday, March 4, after only six weeks of dating.
The couple also allegedly went shopping for an engagement ring over the weekend, but Maier, who is a duke of Provence, France, ultimately did not purchase one for Staub, 56, according to US.
“Danielle’s daughters haven’t met him yet,” a source told Us Weekly of Staub’s daughters, Jillian and Christine, from a previous marriage. “After today she realized she wants to bring her kids into the process more. The wedding has been postponed. Her daughters were surprised because everything happened so fast.”
As readers know, Radar released a shocking video of a drunken Maier sitting on the sand as waves knocked him down.
At one point, he was unable to stand and two men dragged him safely to shore.
“They’ve been at the hotel the last couple of days,” an eyewitness told Radar of the couple, who stayed at Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France. “We happened to notice them at the pool drinking. It’s obvious she drank a lot. She was s**t faced!”
“He swam all the way out,” the insider claimed. “It was alarming cause he was s**t faced. He was swimming back and he couldn’t get out of the ocean so I called someone for help.”
When the group tried to help Maier, the source claimed he screamed, “Don’t touch me! You don’t know who I am! I’m the Duke! Who do you think you are?!”
“He was on a level I never saw before,” the witness said.
Staub’s split from Maier comes less than two weeks after her divorce from ex-husband Marty Caffrey was finalized following their tumultuous relationship.
We are shocked – SHOCKED! – that this two-week relationship between two attention-seeking, alcoholic, wanna-be reality stars didn’t go the distance!
You can watch a video clip of the non-Duke getting his drunk butt dragged out of the ocean here.
“I’M THE DUKE!”
That’s funny stuff.
