HANOVER TOWNSHIP, Pennsylvania — A woman who admitted posting nude photos of her husband’s girlfriend online hit a TV reporter on her way out of court on Tuesday.

Julie Ottaviani wanted to get even with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, investigators said.

A reporter from WNEP tried to question Ottaviani as she left court.

The woman’s family members tried to block the camera.

When the reporter put a microphone in front of Ottaviani, she grabbed it and then hit him with her purse.

Investigators say Ottaviani created a fake Facebook page using naked pictures of her husband’s girlfriend — then added the girlfriend’s 14-year-old son as a friend.

    Just a warning to all you reporters: If someone tells you to get out of their face then back up! She clearly already had her crazy turned on so what makes you think your except from that? I have never hid my crazy and I would have for sure done more then hit you with my purse and just posted pics on Facebook… The husband would be paying too since he is the cheater.

      Agreed. Clearly, she’s into drama, and I would’ve expected that kind of reaction from her if I stuck a mic in her face. I have no sympathy for the reporter, or her. Sometimes, some reporter are just asking for it.

    People should really think before they act. The son did nothing to this lady. But yet she is being disrespectful to this poor boy. She needs counseling .

      I agree about the son. That was hurtful and just nasty to do that to a child. She is pretty disturbed. Sounds like her husband had a pretty good reason to get out of that relationship. That really goes beyond getting even. She needs help.
