Jacqueline Grippe Laurita’s daughter Ashlee Holmes is stealing the spotlight from her mother and some of the other women on Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey by picking an immature fight with Danielle Staub. Her behavior is childish, mean, and unrepentant; instead of ignoring Danielle, Ashlee started up a Facebook hate group for Danielle, and then pulled her extensions out during a fight.
Danielle, who is equally as immature, brought Ashlee to court and got a few dollars out of her, but was still unable to garner a glimmer of remorse.
Jacqueline, who often seems overwhelmed by parenting the feisty 19-year-old, had Ashlee when she was Ashlee’s age during a young marriage to Matt Holmes in Las Vegas. The marriage lasted from 1989 to 1992, but from these pics it looks like Matt is still in Ashlee’s life. He also looks like he’s still livin’ like he’s 19 years old.
UPDATE: Season 3 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey (airing Spring / Summer 2011) features a tearful surprise reunion between Ashlee and her dad Matt Holmes.
UPDATE 2:Thursday, June 2, 2011 Matt Holmes and his wife Jodi Holmes were arrested for suspected money laundering, insurance fraud and arson. Saturday, August 20, 2011 Ashlee tweeted the following statement about the situation: “FYI- my parents have NOT been indicted..this whole thing was started by a disgruntled employee..they are INNOCENT &that’s all i have to say.”
