Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey (a.k.a. the Sopranos and the prostitution-wh0re-turned-born-again-virgin), debuts tonight, and so far the biggest drama they’ve been advertising is a weave-pulling incident. Yawn. If you’re a Bravo fanatic, you know that Real Housewives of Atlanta already pulled this mess when Sheree Whitfield tugged Kim Zolciak’s weave. Kim’s weave should’ve gotten an Emmy for it’s performance in that episode, but I Glenn Close stole that sucker right out from under her.
The New Jersey drama went down in November 2009 at a fashion show while Bravo’s cameras were rolling when cast-member Jacqueline Laurita’s 19-year-old daughter Ashely Holmes yanked at Danielle Staub’s weave. Also at the scene was Theresa Guidice, the notorious table-flipper who now sports C-cups.
Danielle put her own spin on the weave-pull-by-Bravo when she slapped every one of them with a lawsuit. She eventually dropped charges on Laurita and Guidice, but stuck to her guns with Holmes. When the verdict came in, 19-year-old Ashely was found guilty of assault and fined a total of $189, including $33 court costs, so that leaves only $156 for Danielle’s new weave! The tragedy!
Oh well, at least the law was there for Danielle when she needed it. Back when she was around Ashley’s age she was getting slapped with kidnapping, cocaine possession, extortion, and narcotics conspiracy charges!
