Danielle Staub: "I've Been Called The Susan Lucci of Reality TV"

Poor Susan Lucci. First there was that frustrating streak of Daytime Emmy disses all those years ago; then there was her being the international poster child for a dying daytime once news of her All My Children paycut was broken (Sorry about that one, Suse. My bad!); now comes the latest embarassment for daytime's classiest dame to be unfortunately linked to—Real Housewives of New Jersey castoff Danielle Staub.

Spooktacular Talk Show Hosts

Give a reason for daytime talk shows to dress up, like Halloween, and they will. Of all the talk shows who had major personalities dress up, my favorite is The View's Bill Getty as Nosferatu. Sherri Shepherd made up for coming as the penny, looking great as The Queen of the Damned. Barbara Walters, who obsessively stays "in character" each Halloween episode was the most disturbing. Elisabeth Hasselbeck's costume was just lame.

Over at Live with Regis and Kelly, where costumes are changed faster than coffee filters during Halloween episodes, Kelly Ripa appeared as Kate Gosselin, Rachel Zoe, and Lady Gaga while Regis appeared as Jon GosselinSusan Boyle and Rachel Zoe's style associate Brad. Both appeared as a real housewife of New Jersey.

Wendy Williams dressed up as Dolly Parton for The Wendy Williams Show. Ellen appeared as her upcoming cover on O Magazine while guest Kellie Pickler also appeared as Dolly Parton and was repeatedly scared by Ellen staff members in costume. The Today Show cast appeared as Star Wars characters.
