Salon jobs evaporated like hairspray in the atmosphere—only to have new positions appear just as quickly.
"Jerseylicious" stylists Tracy DiMarco and Gigi Liscio were fired for lining up jobs with another salon behind their employer's back.
They were canned in the final part of the "Wild and Untamed" reunion special that aired Sunday, wrapping up Season three of "Jerseylicious" on the Style network.
Cast members also rehashed an incident during Season three filming, in which stylist Olivia Blois Sharpe kicked DiMarco in the head while DiMarco was on the ground during an altercation at a club.
DiMarco said she wasn't impressed with Sharpe's apology for the incident because it came weeks afterward, and she said Blois Sharpe—a Montville High School grad who went on to star on the show—can turn her tears on and off like a magic trick.
At one point, DiMarco made a plea for an end to cruel comments about her online.
"These people know that I'm a good person," DiMArco said, gesturing to the cast members around her.
"But some people love to see if they can push your buttons," host Vivica A. Fox said.
DiMarco said people can and do push her buttons.
"They can," a seemingly desperate DiMarco said, looking straight into the camera. "You guys have won, OK. You won. Leave me alone. "
Blois Sharpe has said she's thankful she wasn't wearing a shoe when she kicked DiMarco and "that night honestly was one of the lowest points in my life."
"If Tracy had gotten really hurt, I don't think I could ever live with myself," she said.
DiMarco said she didn't remember the kick because she was disoriented. Subsequent tests showed she had a concussion, she said.
On the special, Sharpe said she snapped when DiMarco attacked her boyfriend, and because her anger toward DiMarco had been brewing since DiMarco said something hurtful involving her family.
"She put her hands on him and I lost it because, honestly, Mike, he's my world. And, like, if that sounds stupid then it does. But he is," she said.
"And there's been things that I've held back. Tracy had said to me that, you know, I need the love of the fans because my family doesn't love me," she added.
DiMarco and Liscio were canned by Gayle Giacomo, a Bridgewater resident who owns Green Brook-based Gatsby Salon, where they worked. They were welcomed aboard at the salon they were dealing with, a new salon to be opened by Anthony Lombardi and Cathy Giove.
Giacomo and her daughter Christy Pereira, also a Bridgewater resident, said they weren't happy people apparently were talking behind their backs.
"I mean, if you guys don't know where you want to be, I'll make the decision for you," Giacomo said. "I guess you're fired. You can go with Anthony and Mrs. Giove."
Lombardi said they should talk about it. But Giacomo seemed ready to move on.
"I'm a strong woman," Giacomo said. "I've gotten this far. I'll get even farther."
