For the first few seasons of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Ashlee Holmes was Ashley Holmes, Jacqueline Laurita’s bratty teen daughter. Yes, she actually legally changed her name from “Ashley” to “Ashlee.”
During Jacqueline’s final season on the show, Ashlee got engaged to Pete Malleo (and got upset by the editing of that special moment). She also announced that she was pregnant with her son Cameron, who will be 4 years old soon. She got married back in 2018, and now, after nearly two years of marriage, Ashlee announced that they’ve decided to divorce.
People shared a screenshot of Ashlee’s Instagram Story where she broke the news of the separation. The former RHONJ kid wrote, “I’ve been trying to find the right words to share this news.” She admitted, “It’s something that has been weighing pretty heavy on my heart, and I feel that it’s best for my healing process to just put it out there.”
She acknowledged, “A lot of you have sent me so many messages over the last few months. Some of you have even left comments on certain posts of mine with speculation. I’ve always been an incredibly open and honest person. Although no one is entitled to the details of my private life, I have always chosen to share them with you,”
which has benefitted her financially.

Ashlee shared, “Those of you who follow my husband Pete and I on social media have naturally become invested in our lives over the years. That being said, Pete and I have decided to separate.”
She admitted, “This was a difficult decision for us. We intend to always be in each other’s lives, and continue to support one another as we grow as parents to our son Cameron, who we both love more than anything.”

Her announcement concluded, “Regardless of your opinions, we ask that you please think of our son and try your best to respect our family during this time. There are a lot more devastating things going on in the world right now to be concerned with than this ‘news.’ Thank you to all who took the time to read this. Please, stay safe!”
