Ashlee Holmes Malleo and Pete Malleo are going their separate ways.

Holmes, daughter of The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Jacqueline Laurita, announced today that she and her husband of almost two years are splitting.

"I've been trying to find the right words to share this news. It's something that has been weighing pretty heavy on my heart, and I feel that it's best for my healing process to just put it out there," the former Bravo star share in a lengthy message in her IG stories Thursday. "A lot of you have sent me so many messages over the last few months. Some of you have even left comments on certain posts of mine with speculation. I've always been an incredibly open and honest person. Although no one is entitled to the details of my private life, I have always chosen to share them with you. I acknowledge and understand the fact that such a significant part of my life has been documented on television. Those of you who follow my husband Pete and I on social media have naturally become invested in our lives over the years. That being said, Pete and I have decided to separate."

"Pete and I have been through so much together over the last ten years of our lives as not only best friends, but partners in navigating parenthood. This was a difficult decision for us. We intend to always be in each other's lives, and continue to support one another as we grow as individuals. We will continue being loving, dedicated parents to our son Cameron, who we both love more than anything," Holmes continued. "Our new goal in our journey through life together is to become the best co-parents that we are capable of being. Regardless of your opinions, we ask that you please think of our son and try your best to respect our family during this time."


Holmes and Malleo married in August 2018 after welcoming son Cameron Hendrix Malleo, now 3, in August of 2016. The former couple got engaged in February 2016.
