The second season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has been filming for months and the drama has apparently been brewing.
Danielle Staub recently went to court in an attempt to get Ashley Holmes, the 19 year old daughter of co-star Jacqueline Laurita, arrested for pulling out her hair extensions during filming last month.
According to NJ.com, Danielle also wants to file charges against Jacqueline, her one-time close friend but with whom she had a falling-out with towards the end of last season. Danielle claims that she had gotten into an argument with Jacqueline, during which Jacqueline’s teenaged daughter Ashley pulled her hair and ripped out clumps of her hair extensions. All of this is revealed in a filed police report.
Ashley confessed to pulling Danielle’s hair but claimed she did it because she thought Danielle hit her mother. Jacqueline denied being hit by Danielle according to the same police report. The report also reveals Police found Danielle “very emotional and rather incoherent” but she wouldn’t file a report. They told her that she could file a simple assault complaint.
Danielle was back in court Thursday afternoon for an hearing that will decide whether or not she can file charges. Teresa Giudice is also said to have been present during the fight, but did not get involved.
UPDATE: Danielle dropped her complaints against Teresa and Jaqueline in court on Thursday. However, the judge issued a summons against Ashley Holmes on charges of harassment and simple assault, both disorderly persons offenses. Ashley was not present in court.
