“D” is for Danielle… and drama

During last season’s finale of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” table-flipper Teresa Giudice had had it up to here with castmate Danielle Staub.

“You’re just trying to make drama, Danielle,” Teresa told her. “Your name should be Drama.”

Truer words were never spoken, I believe, especially after reading the news today that Danielle is accusing the teenage daughter of her former best friend, Jacqueline Laurita, of yanking out her hair extensions.

According to The Record, Danielle was due in municipal court today regarding the Nov. 11 incident, which took place at the North Jersey Country Club in Wayne and was witnessed by Bravo cameras. (We can only hope some of the incident makes it into the show’s second season!)

The Record says that police were called to the club around 11 that night and found a “very emotional and rather incoherent” Danielle in the parking lot. She reportedly told police that she had gotten into an argument with Jacqueline and that Jacqueline’s daughter, Ashley Holmes, pulled her hair and ripped out clumps of her extensions. Officials note that Ashley acknowledged pulling Danielle’s hair, but says she did so to defend her mother, whom she believed Danielle had hit. Jacqueline, for her part, told police Danielle did not hit her.

No charges were filed at the time, and Teresa, who was present, was listed by police as an “uncooperative witness.” Priceless. Meanwhile, police told Danielle she could file a simple assault complaint against Ashley, Jacqueline and whoever else if she so chose. Meanwhile, we will have to wait and see if the municipal court finds that there was probable cause, which would allow Danielle to file charges against those she says wronged her.

All of this hubbub comes on the heels of Ashley’s 19th birthday – which, according to her mom’s Twitter page – was Tuesday.


Danielle dropped complaints against Jacqueline and Teresa but is pursuing charges against Ashley. Read all about it – and see a video of Danielle in court – right here.
