Having a polarizing villain can't hurt the show's chances for renewal, and another season could vault Staub into the hallowed company of Omarosa Manigault Stalloworth ("The Apprentice") and Heidi Montag Pratt ("The Hills").
Maria Diaz, a blogger for BravoFan.com, a site dedicated to Bravo's juicy reality shows, said her readers love to hate the housewives, particularly Staub.
"They'll comment and they'll say, 'This person's evil' and 'this person's the devil,'" she told ABC News, "but they continue to watch."
It's unclear what happened after the "Last Supper" finale, but the feud may have fizzled for "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," four of whom crossed the bridge to New York this week to step out at the premiere of the new Jack Black comedy, "Year One." Staub was even pictured standing next to her nemesis, Dina Manzo.
Should Zarin bump into Staub, she admits she probably wouldn't call the police right away.
"Face to face, I'm sure I'd be phony like the rest of them and say hello," she said.
