Welcome to “Where Are They Now?” the Danielle Staub edition!

The controversial former star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is adding television host to an already-extensive resume that includes being a convicted felon, sex tape star, author and singer. Her brand new show Social premieres tonight on Wealth TV during which Danielle “introduces the viewer to one of the most fascinating celebrities in the world with an exclusive personal tour through their amazing home. Danielle and the featured celebrity guest conclude each episode with a lavish “invitation only” evening out on the town.”

Here’s a behind-the-scenes sneak peek clip:

Danielle Staub and friends kicked off the premiere season of Social with a launch party at Greenhouse in New York City last night at which Danielle wore an emerald green dress that was a little less than flattering in the bright lights:

Danielle’s first guest will be Sir Ivan Wilzig and the show will feature rare footage from inside his infamous “castle in the Hamptons.” From the press release:

New York/Miami based billionaire recording artist/philanthropist Sir Ivan is co-starring in the debut episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey Danielle Staub’s new show Social on WealthTV, the premier luxury lifestyle and entertainment network. Social, with Sir Ivan, will premiere in its prime-time slot on Wednesday, February 9th at 8pm and 11pm (EST), and will then air again on Saturday, February 12th at 7pm and 10pm (EST). In the show’s debut episode, socialite Danielle Staub visits Sir Ivan at his very unique medieval style Castle, one of only very few in the entire country and the only Castle of its kind in the Hamptons.

Many viewers may have heard of Sir Ivan’s Castle, known as “the Playboy Mansion of the East Coast,” but very few have actually seen the interiors, including its hidden rooms, “dungeon” and art collection. The Castle and its grounds are where Sir Ivan has hosted numerous lavish parties, including his world-famous 60′s themed “Castlestock 2009″ event, with over 800 guests celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Woodstock. The event, now viewed by over 6.5 million people on the internet, also launched Sir Ivan’s private foundation, The Peaceman Foundation, which he created to help victims of Hate Crime and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

As mentioned above, Social airs tonight at 8pm eastern. You can keep up to date on the show, which has already been picked up for a second season, on either the Wealth TV web site or on the Social Facebook page!
