Rapper Ray J and former 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' cast member, Danielle Staub, are dating, MediaTakeOut.com reports.

Staub, who left 'Housewives' after two explosive seasons, was photographed locking lips with the 'Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business' star. Wielding a glass of champagne, the 48-year-old mother of two looks carefree as she puckers up to Norwood, 18 years her junior.

Love hasn't been easy for Staub. Her criminal past was revealed during the first season of 'Houswives' when cast members confronted her about Charles Kipps's book 'Cop Without a Badge' which exposes Kevin Maher, one of Staub's ex-husbands, as an undercover FBI informant. She was also accused of leaking her own sextape in 2010.
