The actress Taryn Manning is famous for her role as the bizarro inmate Pennsatucky on the hit series “Orange Is the New Black” — and now she’s also famous for some crazy threats she’s accused of making against her longtime makeup artist.
According to TMZ, Manning’s makeup artist, Holly Hartman, tried to file a restraining order against Manning for several alleged fights that reportedly took place between the two. The restraining order was not granted, however, because the woman filed it in California even though the alleged events took place in Manning’s NYC apartment.
According to the documents, the last incident happened in November, and Hartman accuses Manning of head-butting her in the face, spraying Windex in her mouth and eyes, putting her in a headlock, whipping her with a wet towel, and daring her to stab her, TMZ asserts.
Hartman reportedly claimed that, mid-brawl, Manning screamed, “Pick a knife. I’m wearing a white shirt — there will be a lot of blood. You will be famous for killing Taryn Manning.”
TMZ and other sources say the actress was arrested for another attack against Hartman in 2012, though charges were later dropped.
Manning’s legal team reportedly told TMZ that Hartman’s claims are not legit, saying Hartman is actually the one who is “under investigation for stalking Ms. Manning and for theft and other crimes” in multiple cities.
