Chelsea Kane Might Be Related To Jersey Housewife Danielle Staub?

To be filed under "Things You Should Never Admit."

We thought the whole point of Dancing With the Stars finalist Chelsea Kane dropping the "Staub" from her last name was so people would never think she was related to Real Housewives of New Jersey diva Danielle "Prostitution Wh*re" Staub. But...guess not.

“I got that all the time, people were always asking me if I was related to Danielle Staub. I don’t know, I might be,” Chelsea told Fox News. “She kind of looks like my dad a little bit. They have the same nose.”

What?! Seriously, though, is Danielle's nose even her own nose? That might not be enough of a connection. You're probably safe, Chelsea! Or, er, "Kane."

“Kane is my middle name and most of my friends call me by Kane,” Chelsea claims, which is one reason she changed from Chelsea Staub to Chelsea Kane just this past year. “Mark [Ballas] calls me Kane. It was always my nickname and it just seemed like the right time to make the change. It also means ‘little battler’ so what better name to go into Dancing With the Stars with."

Watch the video below for more from Chelsea on making third place on DWTS Season 12. She's really way too sane to be related to Danielle. However, Danielle has hinted that she might be on DWTS Season 13, so that would make it a family tradition, no?
