According to another In Touch source, Staub "will be filming several episodes" for the upcoming season, which will also feature former The Celebrity Apprentice contestant Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga dealing with the effects of Hurricane Sandy instead of their own blowout arguments.
"The producers squeezed all the juice they could from the Giudices-versus-Gorgas story line and had to think of a fresh outlet for drama," the source added. "Having [Danielle] back on will ruffle a lot of feathers!"
Staub -- who sought professional treatment for psychological problems caused by childhood sexual abuse in May 2011 -- left The Real Housewives of New Jersey after its second season, which aired in 2010, due to overwhelming fights she had with fellow cast members.
