It may have been her mother, Danielle Staub, who got tongues wagging during the first season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but all eyes will soon be on Christine Staub. The 15-year-old has just signed with IMG Model– the same agency that represents Gisele Bunchen, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss and Taylor Momsen. “She came into our offices and we were blown away!” Ivan Bart, SVP and Managing Director of IMG Models Worldwide, tells PEOPLE.com. “She has an amazing amount of potential as a model. If we had seen her on the street we would have signed her on the spot.” The 5’10” soon-to-be high school sophomore is still taking test photos, but it is possible she could hit the catwalk as early as September for New York Fashion Week, according to IMG. “This is all very new to me,” Chirstine told The Daily. “I’ve never really done any modeling before, so I’m just learning while I have a chance and being guided by the best in the business. I’m also getting used to industry people looking at my face so closely!” Tell us: Do you want to see Christine hit the runway?

Congratulations. At least something good came out of that God forsaken horrible show.
Medusa, I mean Teresa, eat your heart out. See, what goes around, comes around. Go and flip some more tables. Dina, you daughter does not stand a chance. And Caroline, send your lazy daughter to a Fat Farm and you should join her, while you are at it. Danielle stay away from your kid career, is all about HER, NOT YOU. Jackie, is your daughter still lying around, doing nothing and been obnoxious?

Everything Long Island Marta said is what I feel about the other kids. This one is gorgeous, best wishes to her. Dina’s kid, wow, poor thing. Teresa’s little pageant kid, well…she’s not even cute. Maybe she can do some modeling for K-mart or something.

I think Mommy is just trying to pay the bills…..since she couldn’t find a wealthy man to pay the mortgage— she’s using daughter!

The first time I saw her on the show I commented (to my daughters) on how pretty she was. She reminds me of a young Cybil Sheppard.

She looks as homely as her mother. I am more attractive than that! IMG I am right here, hot dang!

I knew the minute she was seen on the Housewives show that she would be picked up by someone for modeling. She is just beautiful. Good for her!
