“Orange Is the New Black” actress Taryn Manning has a little problem on her hands. Manning has gained a lot of popularity since the Netflix original series began airing last year. Since the show was such a phenomenon, the entire cast gained a huge following. According to a July 3 report from E! Online, Taryn Manning has received an order of protection against a former friend. Jeanine Heller has allegedly been cyber-stalking Manning for quite some time. Heller was arrested and arraigned in court last Wednesday.
Fans may remember Taryn Manning from “Sons of Anarchy,” but her most notable role has been Tiffany or “Pennsatucky” from “Orange Is the New Black.” The story goes that Jeanine Heller tried hard to befriend Manning but there were some red flags from some of Manning's closest friends. Heller and Manning were friends for a little over a year before things fell apart.
Jeanine Heller has denied doing anything that is alleged, but no official statement has been released. Manning has been on Twitter but made no comments about Heller. Obviously there are two sides to every story, and it looks like that is the case here as well. Manning is moving on with her life and getting in gear to film the next season of "Orange Is the New Black" as "Pennsatucky."
Taryn Manning isn't the only Hollywood star to have to get an order of protection against an alleged crazy fan or stalker. Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Lindsay Lohan have all dealt with similar situations. Who you choose to allow into your circle when you are famous makes a difference. Jeanine Heller has denied stalking Manning, but the judge granted the order of protection in favor of Manning. After the week Manning has had, she deserves a little down time.
