Is it just me, or is Taryn Manning becoming her Orange Is The New Black character?
The actress seemed to be in a vicious fight with makeup artist and I guess frenemy Holly Hartman, but not just vicious…CRAZY. Like, headbutting, windex and headlocks were involved. The strangest thing? It’s probably happened before.ÃÂ Check it:
The Orange Is the New Black star allegedly headbutted Hartman, sprayed windex in her eyes and put her in a headlock, according to TMZ. Hartman filed a restraining order over the incident, which allegedly occurred in November at Manning’s New York apartment. A judge declined to grant Hartman the restraining order, citing that she filed it in Los Angeles, but the alleged incident is said to have taken place in New York.
Manning’s attorney tells PEOPLE the OITNB star, 37, has not had any recent contact with the makeup artist. The pair have a long history together, with Manning arrested in 2012 for allegedly assaulting Hartman. Those charges were later dropped, and at the time they were described as longtime friends.
“The court has already denied the request by Ms. Hartman for a temporary restraining order. The application for the order is suspect because Ms. Manning has had no contact with Ms. Hartman in many months due to Ms. Hartman’s actions against Ms. Manning which are currently under criminal investigation in multiple jurisdictions,” Hartman’s legal counsel tells PEOPLE in a statement. “These investigations have long predated these entirely fabricated allegations. Ms. Hartman is under investigation for stalking Ms. Manning and for theft and other crimes. It is clear that Ms. Hartman’s camp has leaked these allegations which were not available publicly to elevate her own position and obscure her own wrong doing.”
True or not, if I was Holly I’d do my best to take some self defenses, grab that restraining order and I dunno, MAYBE STOP BEING FRIENDS WITH TARYN MANNING. Girl was SPRAYING WINDEX IN HER EYES. That’s not just fighting, that’s CRAZY. C’mon. More grown-ass adults acting like drunken little scamps, if you ask me (gets off lawn, tightens flannel bathrobe). Good riddance.
