Danielle Staub’s lawyer tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that Danielle plans legal action against Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter Ashley Holmes, among others, for their wild attack on Danielle, which featured on last night’s ‘RHONJ’ episode.

Hell hath no fury like Danielle Staub attacked by a pack of raging Housewives!

The star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is still furious over the November attack that left her emotionally bruised and with one less hair extension.

We told you earlier about the July 12 episode documenting the ridiculous and almost gang like fight instigated by Teresa Giudice, which ended with Jacqueline Laurita‘s 19-year-old daughter Ashley Holmes ripping out Danielle’s hair. But HollywoodLife.com can exclusively reveal that Danielle is suing the women involved at the superior court in Passaic County, NJ.

“I’ve never seen anything like this,” says Danielle’s defense attorney Paul Giblin. “We are going to use this footage and prepare a case against these women. We are seeking assault and battery charges, defamation of character and punitive damages as well.”

But that’s not all: Paul is going to do everything he can to make sure that Danielle remains safe from the other housewives.

“We will get restraining orders by the judge against Teresa, Ashley and all others involved. We will subpoena this women to make sure they come to court. We are going to ask to impose sanctions against these women, whatever the law allows.”

i’ve been an attorney for almost 50 years — every major
i’ve never seen anything like this they are so explosive and so negative — is it over no it’s not over i don’t know that it will ever be over. danielle is a nice deep thinking thoughtful generous kind considerate for whatever reason constant baiting –
no court date — we are going to use that footage and prepare the case against them. we feel that we will be successful. No question about the assault and battery and issues of defamation and character. Ashley and Teresa — just a law suit seeking punitive damages but others as well. restraining orders — the judge — probably in the next few weeks — i don’t know when the judge will hear but –we will supine them –
these things don’t end with paying a fine
we are going to ask for the most punitive whatever the law allows us to restrain her and impose sanctions against her we will do.
there is freedom of speech amendment can you restrain someone for saying things but it’s the intent behind it — is this fueling some of the work behind this people. some kind of conspiracy it’s like a gang mentality.
superior court in passaic country highest court in the country –
Paul Giblin criminal defense attorney — Bob Cherry

Ashley appeared in court back in January but got off with a $189 fine.

“These things don’t end with paying a fine,” says Paul. “It’s not over … I don’t know when this will ever be over. There is a freedom of speech amendment so we can’t restrain Teresa for saying things but it’s the intent behind it. This is fueling some of the work behind these people. This is some kind of conspiracy, it’s like a gang mentality.”

“JEALOUSY & ENVY” are the equivalent to a Knife & a Gun! Jealousy stems from a tangible item that one possesses, or an intangible character trait that one owns and the other wishes they had!
It’s disturbing that someone’s past dictates their future, as in Danielle’s cases she feels as though she has to protect her present “character” identity. Her braggadocios reference to a conversation to her ex con friend,”…you saw my house?” Or her negative comment to Theresa, “…I saw the house you lived in, linoleum floors”…Danielle is too keeping score on everyone else as she aspires to re-live a lifestyle of which that she had become accustom to; in my opinion she is ENVIOUS. In addition, from my prospective Danielle appears to be a woman who is only happy when she has a significant other in her life; as she ill referenced Dina and relationship with her husband, as I would be remiss not to shed light on her comment to Joe, Theresa’s husband by stating…”I’m not your wife!” equating to JEALOUSY.
I truly admire Dina, and her decision to remove herself from the cast of the show. Danielle’s incessant obsession with these women, in my opinion is troublesome, and it appears to stem from a place far deeper than what the camera has already depicted on screen. I’m sure it makes GREAT television, yet, her karmic quest to teach the Laurita/ Manzo family a lesson, will bite her back. I would suggest that Danielle put her incessant values of JEALOUSY & ENVY to rest; in an effort to live by her mantra- “love & light”. Light cannot funnel through dark storm clouds!
By no means, am I condoning the irresponsible behavior of Ashley, as I believe she truly needs to be taught a very valuable lesson. However, to allow your legal counsel to represent you against women for “catty” name calling is narcissistic and absurd. As stated earlier, she has her Knife and Gun!

First Tiny MANZO was killed by mobsters; ask yourself who was he or his family hanging around with??? YES; you got it ” MOBSTERS”

Second Jaquelyn on one episode was going to pay Ashely’s teacher to pass her. ” VERY DECENT???” NOT!

Danielle invites DINA and the other dogs over for spa and DINA insults the Lady in her own HOUSE “CLASSY???” NOT!

Danielle’s drama discusted me from day one on the show. That said, I continue to watch! Now really how can you expect Ashley to know any better than to pull someones hair? Parents must lead by example. When my son was in the 3rd grade I soooo wanted to “take out” his teacher, BUT I DIDN’T!! He saw me handle a disagreeable situation with poise and maturity resulting in the outcome I desired. Now I have a mature 20 yr old whom I am confident can handle himself in any situation that may come his way. I get a kickout of seeing Theresa with the girls and Joe, NOT showing her ass by instigating a fight, BTW Theresa, there was nothing innocent about your sitting in wait for the chance to pounce so please stop trying to sell that one because nobody is buying! Next thing we are going to see is this bunch on Judge Judy! Maybe she can straighten them out.

I see some comments about an 18yr old being called a crack whore.

The 18yr old girl’s parents can’t even stand her.
They put her out because they could not control her.
the 18yr old girl threatened someones life.
The 18yr old girl assaulted another women
The 18yr old did not show any remorse

Over half of people in prison commit felony’s as young adults.

BUT these IDIOTS attempting to defame Danielles character but mistakes she made at a 19yr old or so.

Please GET the PSYCHO Ashely SOME NEEDED HELP before she HURTS another PERSON!

Danielle is beautiful to be 48 or 49yrs old comparing to the other women in their 30’s .

But what does looks have to do with people being treated with respect.

Look; The whole country is watching and Jacquelyn, Teresa, Caroline are all ruthless witches.

look at Ashley how screwed up she is…

If she would do that to another women what will she do behind closed doors to other girls or women…

Manzo, Teresa and Jacquelyn you people are some NASTY women…

No thank you,,,

Danielle is an ex con with very little class and a lot of plastic surgeries. Just look at the guys she hangs out with…all ex cons! She will do anything for attention and it looks like she’s setting the groundwork for a lawsuit. She will do anything for money, which has been the story of her life, even if it’s breaking the law and going to jail.

How could anyone think that this psycho plastic maniac thieve is good looking? Even her surguries are cheap looking!!!

I feel very sorry for the rest of the housewives who are decent, law abiding citizens that are not used to dealing with a manipulative ex con.

if danielle wasn’t so ugly on the inside, she might not look so ugly on the outside- cuz, for her age, her body does look great… yes, she paid for it to look that way, but she does have a naturally tall and slender build with long legs and such. don’t get me wrong, she’s garbage… but, if she had dina’s personality and light, we’d all be singing a different tune.

Danielle definetely has a case against Ashley but I’m not sure what kind of charges the others will face and am highly doubtful that Teresa or Jaqueline will face anything other than potentially a restraining order and/or fine.

Danielle a.k.a. Beverly ann Merrill, loves that she holds some power to make the famlies lives dlfficult. She is paranoid and completely delusional, she is arguing with and 18 year old calling the girl a “coke Whore” when she was the one who worked as a prostitute, getting caught with kilos of cocaine and charged ( and plead guilty) to extortion only after cooperating with police. So whose the coke whore? It’s like she projects all of her issues on everyone else, it’s actually fascinating to watch, i often hope she is acting.

( found all this info online, fascinating what you can find online, huh?)

Danielle needs mental help.She wants to say what she wants and then run,scream and act like someone is trying to kill her.She is a drama queen and the reason for it is bi-polar disorder.She is off her rocker big time.Ashley shouldnt have pulled that nuts hair.You dont put your hands on anyone or anything belonging to them.I saw nothing illegal about Teresa telling her off or Jacqueline standing outside.
She is the type who is always looking for trouble and a lawsuit.Too bad Caroline wasnt there to clue them in.She has Danielle’s crazy number.I feel bad for her daughters.

if danielle is thinking lawsuit now, my guess is that some fame whore attorney saw the footage and reached out to her to say they’d do a case for her for free (for the free publicity). don’t get me wrong, danielle is a lunatic and drama-obsessed, but i wouldn’t be surprised if the attorney reached out to her (which could be unethical if done the wrong way).

As far as name calling goes. Everyone of the women are @ fault. Including Ashley. I have watched every episode. Both season’s. Yes Danielle is whacked. At last yrs. reunion. Carolina said Danielle did something to Dina, & she would never forgive her for it. Dina asked her to let it go. Not to talk about it. Carolina respected her wishes. Now it has come out Danielle tried to have Lexi taken away from Dina.This is suppose to be what Carolina was talking about. This, all the lies Danielle has told, & the incident @ the Brownstone is what sent Dina over the edge.This is suppose to be why she left the show. Why she says it was because of Danielle. If Danielle did this. That is past low. If you want to talk about the adults. Trade insults.Go for it. Leave the children alone. What happened @ the Brownstone was unbelieveable.Danielle admited she could not donate anything, but she knew people who could. In walks Kim G. that’s ok. She donated money. Paid for their table, seats. If she felt she needed a “BodyGuard”. Fine. He was paid for. To bring ALL those others. THAT WAS CRAZY. Did she honestly think the Manzo’s would do any thing to ruin the reputation of their business. Something they have worked 30 yrs. to accomplish. I don’t think so. The people who were putting on the event are the ones who asked to have Danielle’s group leave. This I hope will brought up @ the reunion show. Danielle has gone TO FAR on alot of things. I can’t blame the other ladies for not wanting to have anything to do w/her. The kind of life Danielle has lived. I would be paranoid also. Maybe that is why she feels like everyone is out to get her, and she needs a bodyguard. As for all this crap w/Ashley. Ashley is acting like a 15, 16 yr. old. This girl is suppose to be a young adult. I do like the way Jacquline & Chris ar handling things. If they don’t they could loose everything. Ashley is acting like she has a chip on her shoulder. GROW UP ASHLEY. What happened on this wks.show.Ashley didn’t think Danielle had hit her Mom. She just said that. She just neede an excuse to attact Danielle. From what I saw on the show that’s exactly the way I saw it.It was an attack. I Love Teresa.BUT. She did start this. This Time. You could see it in her eyes, her actions.You could hear it in her voice.Teresa wanted to start something w/Danielle. Teresa I can’t back you on this. Jacquline. I can’t back you either. For backing Teresa.If Teresa HAD to say Hello. Why didn’t she leave it @ that? Or after she said hello. Congradulate Danielle about Christine. LEAVE IT @ THAT. It went to far. When Danielle said what she did about your house. LET IT GO. Who cares. As long as you know the truth. That’s all that matters.All that went down, & the way it went down. I would have been scared too. I will hand this one to Kim G. She did well. When all of you got to the car you should have left. Kim D could have brought you your bag. Or after Danielle got in the car,& she calmed down. You could have gone in & got your bag. Then left. Teresa coming to the car was wrong. She should have stayed in the building. When Jacquline came to get you. That’s what she should have done. Got you. Then both of you went back into the building. I knew when the police got there nothing would be done. The Manzo’s have to much money & power. The police are not going to bother anyone close to them. Jacquline knew this. That’s why she continued to stand there. She knew they wouldn’t do anything to Ashley or the rest of them. When she repeated what the police said about Danielle. That they knew Danielle. Had been dealing w/her for yrs. She was always the victim. Also the way Teresa talked back to the police. Why are you questioning me. I didn’t do anything. Her tone of voice. I KNEW nothing would happen to any of them.Ashley really should have been arrested for assault. I always try to see both sides. I have always sided w/the 4 ladies. Danielle IS always making derogatory comments about them & their children. In this case ONLY. I have to side w/Danielle. Even when Jacquline & Teresa got in the car. Jacquline said You just had to say hello. When Jacquline was walking to Teresa @ Kim’s car. You could tell Jacquline was agitated w/Teresa. When she got there Jacquline asked her what she was doing. Teresa said I just want to talk to her. There was no reason for her to be there. Even Ashley showed up. Jacquline was trying to keep her from getting into any more trouble.What does Ashley do? She acts like a 2 yr. old. Telling her Mom she was choosing Danielle over your on daughter. Grow Up Ashley. I really can’t blame Danielle for what she is doing now.Ashley just got a fine when she was taken to court the first time. Less than $200.She didn’t learn anything.Ashley acts like everyone should bow down & kiss her feet. Ashley needs to be punished. Just for her attitude. Teresa & Ashley were in the wrong on this. I doubt if anything becomes of this though. They are related to the Manzo’s. I mean come on. They give a fund raiser every yr. for the Sheriff. That says it all. Teresa, & the rest of the ladies. PLEASE BEHAVE.Act like LADIES. I don’t think I could EVER side w/Danielle again.
