Taryn Manning

Reports are circulating today that Taryn Manning was involved in a serious altercation with her make-up artist, Holly Hartman. 

According to TMZ, the 37-year-old actress has been accused of attacking Holly, headbutting her as well as putting her in a headlock. 

In scenes that sound like a particularly dark scene from Orange is the New Black, the incident allegedly occurred in Taryn's New York home in November. 

Holly has since filed a restraining order against the actress but her request was subsequently rejected.

"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," Taryn's legal team has since told People magazine. 

In a bizarre twist to this tale, this is not the first altercation between the duo who were one described as lifelong friends. 

Taryn was actually arrested back in 2012 for alleged assault against her supposed pal, though these charges were later dropped.

However, since then there seems to have been an increasing amount of issues developing between the two. 

"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."



All of the stars of Orange is the New Black hit the red carpet for Sunday night’s Emmy awards. Before Uzo Aduba could take home her much-deserved award however, one of her co-stars was busy sending fans into a frenzy she was quizzed on the carpet.

Entertainment Tonight asked actress Taryn Manning a question that few of us had thought to end propose, because now we just cannot stop thinking about it: Will Britney Spears be on OITNB?

In case you forget this important moment in pop culture history, Britney and Taryn starred alongside each other in the classic noughties film Crossroads. Which was written by Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes, just FYI.

So, Taryn was asked if she would want to see Britney behind bars at some point on the show. Her answer:

"Of course! I want Britney everywhere," Manning said. "She's such a good actor I feel they can do anything with her. I was so impressed working with her.”

While some might doubt Britney’s acting chops, because to be fair the OITNB cast are quite amazing, Taryn gave her the seal of approval:

“She's so sincere in her acting. [With Crossroads] everyone was maybe hoping she wouldn't be good, but she was great."

Britney has just finished filming for a different series, Jane The Virgin, so perhaps this may actually be a reality at some point in the future. Taryn wasn’t quite sure who exactly Britney could play, although we’re sure fans have a few ideas, but she could share some Crossroads memories with us.

“There’s a very specific day [that stands out to me when I look back on the movie] — I was like ‘Sing, sing for me,’ right?- she sang the National Anthem for me in the car — for us — and it was the most perfect thing I’ve ever heard”



Orange is The New Black star, Taryn Manning may be known for her portrayal of “Pennsatucky” Doggett on the hit show, but it seems Taryn may have some legal issues of her own, after accusing a former friend of stalking her online.

The 35-year-old actress has been forced to get a restraining order against her former friend, who has been allegedly harassing the OITNB star with e-mails and phone calls.

Manning’s friend, Heller was arrested on Wednesday and was taken New York criminal court for stalking of the fourth degree, although she was later released.

Manning’s lawyer talked about the arrest in statement: “The arrest followed an investigation by members of the New York County District Attorney’s Office after it was reported that Ms. Heller had engaged in a course of conduct intended to cause reasonable fear of material harm to the physical health, safety and welfare of Taryn Manning.”

Heller soon tweeted and then deleted her reaction to the statement: “Don’t believe the lies. #truth will come to light”

Taryn of course noticed this  and soon tweeted her response to Heller’s actions.

“Someone finally noticed. Tweets deleted. #guilty”

Ouch! This sounds like it will get worse before it gets any better.
