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 “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?

If you really look at her she actually looks like a young Dorothy Straten who was taken from the world at a very young age. She has an innocence about her that I hope her mother sending her into hollywood isnt stolen from her.

As far as Danielle and the housewives. I think all of them have skeletons in the closet and they made it sound like they were all angels but what does their family do for a living?

So, I don’t think the things Danielle did were right but I don’t think airing it on TV was fair either..the language used was in appropriate with all the children in the room.

Dina was not innocent but tried to come off as if she was and her older sister is a bully who should look in the mirror she is not the godmother..but she sure acted like one..Teresa pays cash for everything no one thinks that is strange..who carries 10K in cash where ever they go…

anyway…I wish this child well as her and her sister have been exposed to too much too soon…

Christine is gorgeous and NATURAL looking. I hope she says that way. It’s ironic isn’t it, considering the NJ group is super enhanced with Botox and silicone!!! She looks nothing like the fake Housewives, and she’s the one with the modeling deal.

I agree with Marlene’s comment” Probably the least tacky person on the show was Danielle’s daughter… I wish her the best.”

Oh good, she was the most sensible person on the show and maybe now she’ll become the most successful as well. Too bad she can look forward to supporting her useless, famewhoring mother for the rest of her life. If she’s truly as smart as she seems, she’ll grab her little sister as soon as she can and dump mommy to her own attention-seeking devices.

I think the post about her mother was very inappropriate, whether it is true or not. This isnt about her mother, so why drag her into this? Her daughter is very pretty and I wish her much success.

She is absolutely beautiful. I also knew from the moment I saw her on TV, that there is something special about her.

She has such great features. I wish her the best!
