’8 Mile’ Actress Taryn Manning Assaults Makeup Artist…Gets Arrested

Submitted by on October 12, 2012 – 11:00 am Comments

The question one needs to ask here is, why would anyone want to beat up their makeup artist? Only Taryn Manning can give a reply to this. But, what needs to be mentioned here is the fact that, she beat up the young 23-year-old makeup artist in her room at New York City’s Dream Downtown hotel. If the name of the hotel sounds familiar, it’s because this is the very hotel outside which Lindsay Lohan just a few weeks ago brushed a man’s leg, with her vehicle.

Seems like, this is one hotel that really knows how to pick its guests. Taryn on her part was later picked up by the cops and charged with assault. She has reportedly hired herself the services of Joe Tacopina, the high profile criminal defense attorney who is also handling Lindsay’s case. One thing is for sure, with clients like Lindsay Lohan and now Taryn Manning; Tacopina shall never go out of business, recession or no recession. Also, it surely isn’t a coincidence that, Manning hired the same defense attorney as Lohan, could it be possible that Dream Downtown hotel has Tacopina on its speed dial, so he is always on call for the hotel’s more volatile clients?

Well there surely is some connection, and Tacopina must also be really good at his job, for him to be so much in demand. As far as Taryn is concerned, she has in movies and TV shows usually played characters that are either troubled or are troublemakers. Seems like the directors who cast her in those roles, must have gauged what she really is like. The fact that she kickboxes does Tae Bo and has a 3rd degree green belt in karate, must also have something to do with it.

In fact, she was the state champion in karate, in Arizona. So you can imagine the state of the makup artist who she beat up. Presently, Taryn is concentrating on her music career, besides appearing on TV shows. She recently appeared in an episode of the TV series ‘Burn Notice’, and has since 2010 appeared in a number of episodes of the series Hawaii Five-O, up until this year. It would interest you to know that, despite the alleged incident, Taryn seems to have been released from custody, as she later tweeted: ‘I’m on #MyDamnChannelLive in 30 min! Send questions… I will answer live on the show at 4pm.’
