'Jerseylicious:' Stylists Catfight at Salon Opening
Lombardi said he will not tolerate drama.
"Jerseylicious" stars and stylists Olivia Blois Sharpe and Tracy DiMarco simply couldn't keep their harsh words to themselves during a grand opening for the Anthony Robert Salon, as seen on Sunday night's episode of The Style Network reality show.
According to The Style Network's blog, Anthony Lombardi, the Anthony Robert Salon owner, was "stepping out of the Gatsby's shadow" by expanding his own salon at its Verona location. The Gatsby, a competing salon with Lombardi and shares several employees, including DiMarco and Blois Sharpe, a Montville Township High School graduate, is located in Green Brook.
Lombardi had tried a soft opening with a "Friends and Family" event that was featured on that last episode, but after that event was unsuccessful, he had high hopes for the grand opening of the revamped Anthony Robert Salon. That was until the drama between DiMarco and Blois Sharpe began.
"I'd be an idiot to tell you that I don't expect them to fight about something, but they promised me that they wouldn't during the grand opening. I've been so good to both of them. I've helped them out and they've helped me, so I really thought they'd be able to put their problems aside for one day," Lombardi wrote on the blog.
According to DiMarco's post on the blog, the drama began when Blois Sharpe thought she was talking about her.
Lombardi also wrote it is time for him to put his foot down with the two stylists and "really let them know that I'm the boss."
"I'm going to have to start cracking the whip and letting them know that whatever happened at the Gatsby is not going to be tolerated at my salon," he said.
"Jerseylicious" airs Sundays at 8 p.m.
