“We have no contact. We’re not even allowed to talk to each other,” the 32-year-old candidly reveals, adding that “the protection order is still in place” so texts and FaceTime calls are off-limits.
With the coronavirus pandemic currently sweeping the nation, Harley says, “We have to wait for our next court date to even modify that,” referring to the protection order. “It’s been put off.”
The licensed real estate agent — who recently joined Realty One Group in Las Vegas — gave birth to the couple’s baby girl in April 2018. As a single parent, Harley admits she struggles to balance work and motherhood.
“With her being 2 years old, I don’t trust a lot of people watching my daughter, and so it’s like I’ve had to put my career and my jobs or anything I have to do on the back-burner just because I’m with her,” she explains. “It’s hard to find anybody to watch her.”
Despite the hardships, Harley couldn’t help but gush over Ariana’s recent milestones. “She is potty-training. She’s almost potty-trained. She can say almost anything I think at this point. She’s talking so much.”
And it sounds like she’s following in her mama’s footsteps. “She’s just becoming her own little person. Her personality’s blooming and she’s a funny little girl. She’s such a girly girl. She loves to dress up. She has to wear like a tutu or any kind of dress like every single day. She’s so girly.”
As for whether or not the mother-daughter duo will ever watch Jersey Shore together? It’s not likely. “I wish it was never part of our lives,” she reveals about the MTV show. “It completely ruined our family, ruined the person I was in love with.”
