Danielle StaubProviding a clue of what's to come in the second season of Bravo's 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey,' star Danielle Staub, the center of much of the drama last season, says another housewife's daughter pulled her (fake) hair out by the (fake) roots.

According to The Record newspaper of Bergen and Passaic counties in NJ, where much of the reality series is filmed, Staub filed a complaint in municipal court in Wayne, NJ, alleging that during a fight at a country club last month, Ashley Holmes, 19, pulled one of Staub's hair extensions out. Holmes is the daughter of Jacqueline Laurita, another housewife on the show who had previously demonstrated a friendship with Staub despite pressure from her husband's family -- including housewife sisters Caroline Manzo and Dina Manzo -- to cut ties with Staub.

Staub -- who arrived in court yesterday with three friends and Bravo cameras -- was the main event last season when it was revealed, via an uncovered old book penned by an ex-boyfriend, that she reportedly had a questionable past, including another name and an arrest on what she said were false charges.Danielle StaubProviding a clue of what's to come in the second season of Bravo's 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey,' star Danielle Staub, the center of much of the drama last season, says another housewife's daughter pulled her (fake) hair out by the (fake) roots.

Staub -- who arrived in court yesterday with three friends and Bravo cameras -- was the main event last season when it was revealed, via an uncovered old book penned by an ex-boyfriend, that she reportedly had a questionable past, including another name and an arrest on what she said were false charges.

After the fight, Staub also issued complaints against housewife Teresa Giudice and Laurita, but dropped those complaints (that alleged the ladies cursed at her, issued threats and chased her following a fashion show at the country club) during the court session. Yet she maintained her complaint against Holmes. The newspaper reports that Staub alleged that before Laurita's daughter pulled out the hair extension, the teenager said, "I'll get her," and "I'll kill you."

Staub said the hair drama, which reportedly happened during a show taping, followed alleged harassment by Laurita and Giudice, after which Staub ran away, left with scratches and a broken heel before hiding in the parking lot, allegedly being attacked by Holmes while being assisted by her bodyguard on the way to her car. Holmes told police officers that she believed she was retaliating for Staub hitting her mother, though Laurita denied being hit.

The judged issued Holmes a summons on charges of harassment and simple assault. The newspaper also reported that this past summer Staub brought a lawsuit against another ex-boyfriend to prevent him from releasing sex tapes, thought the suit was dropped.

Giudice, known as the table-flipping housewife for her infamous explosion directed at Staub during the first season, refrained from approaching any sort of table during the argument and was listed as a "uncooperative witness" in the police report, according to the Star-Ledger newspaper of Newark, NJ.

While the table flip has thus far stayed exclusive to the ladies in Jersey, it's looking like hair-pulling is becoming a hallmark of the 'Housewives' franchise. A conflict between housewife Kim Zolciak and housewives NeNe Leakes and Sheree Whitfield during the latest season of 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' culminated -- amongst other things -- in Whitfield tugging at Zolciak's wig in an attempt to "shift" it.
