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.
Longtime Real Housewives of New Jersey fans recall how upset Danielle Staub was when Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter Ashlee Malleo pulled her hair after chasing her around a country club during Season 2. Danielle even brought a mannequin with extensions for a demonstration at the Season 2 reunion.
After years of complaints and legal action, it’s so shocking that Danielle went and pulled Margaret Josephs‘ ponytail this season on RHONJ. Hypocrite much? Danielle doesn’t think so, of course. However, Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline do. Melissa and Jacqueline actually agreeing on something? Wow. That hasn’t happened in a long time.
Veteran Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers will never forget the big fuss Danielle Staub made when Jacqueline Laurita’s (then-teenage) daughter Ashlee Malleo yanked on her extensions at the country club.
It’s especially relevant nowadays since the episode just aired when Danielle channeled Ashlee by pulling on Margaret Josephs‘ ponytail. Danielle upped the ante though. She also poured the contents of Margaret’s purse into a lit candle. So, of course, this new content has led to more shit talking between Danielle, Jacqueline, and Ashlee. Gotta love that cling for relevance. Nevertheless, Danielle allegedly took things too far. Yet again. Color me shocked.
