"No, I didn't understand initially," she admitted to The Morning Breath of Bravo's decision to make her a "friend" of the Housewives. "I was a little upset. I was almost a little bit insulted."
"But then I realized as I started to film with the ladies that I was with every group cast gathering," she said. "So I was in every one of those scenes and I was in private scenes. So I was doing the work and spending the time getting to know everybody."
"Bravo always knows what they're doing and so do the producers and I trust them immensely," she said. "They spent a lot of time on the phone with me and I do give them that, but when I look back I do regret giving them such a hard time — but then I don't because of what happened to me in seasons one and two."
"I had to really like understand and wrap my head around why I'm coming back and what was going to happen to me," she confessed. "Are they using me? What was the intentions behind it sic? And if I'm part time, does that mean I'm disposable? But clearly I'm not."
She also divulged that she didn't like Margaret Josephs initially "because she got full time status right away.
"I was a little jealous I can't lie," she said.
Radar exclusively reported last November that Staub, 55, was returning to Bravo but didn't know whether or not she'd be a full-time cast member. She was caught filming at Kim D.'s Posche fashion show alongside Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga as producers were desperate for drama.
The show's cameras later captured her bathroom rendezvous with fiancée Marty Caffrey at the opening celebrations of Gorga's Homemade Pasta & Pizza, with insiders telling Radar that "Dolores Catania went nuts calling her a pig" over her brags about his ejaculation on her shoe.
Staub also told the show's hosts Jackie and Claudia Oshry that she will be at the reunion taping as well, but didn't say what she would discuss at the taping.
