07/01/2009 AT 12:00 AM EDT
Before the Real Housewives of New Jersey star -- whose criminal past was discovered by her costars -- put Franklin Lakes, N.J., on the map, she visited the fictional town of Pine Valley when she appeared in a scene on All My Children in 2001.
Staub, a former model, shared the scene with hunky actor Josh Duhamel, who played Leo du Pres on the ABC soap from 1999 to 2002.
Staub doesn't have many lines in the video clip, which was posted on SoapNet.com, but her delivery isn't bad as Nora, a sexy Italian on a date with Jackson Montgomery, played by Walt Willey.
Tell us: Are you surprised to see Danielle on All My Children? Should she have stuck with acting instead of reality TV?
