Scandal

In an interview with Fox News, she said that she heard from one of her stylists on the night of August 30 that Nancy Pelosi had booked an appointment. The stylist said that the assistant confirmed the appointment at the salon on August 31. Kious said her reaction was, “Do I let this happen? What do I do?” The owner added, “It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can’t work.” Kious went on, “We’re supposed to look up to this woman, right? It is just disturbing.”

Pelosi’s office said the speaker thought she was following the rules by agreeing to be the only customer inside of the salon at the time and added that it is illegal to perform blow-drying during the coronavirus quarantine.

Following Pelosi’s statement, Kious appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to say that her actions were not political. Kious rejected the allegation of a “setup,” saying, “There was no way I could’ve set that up. I’ve had a camera system in there for five years. I mean, I didn’t go in there and turn cameras on as soon as she walked in and set her up. So that is absolutely false.” During the segment, Kious told Carlson that since the Pelosi video was released, Kious has received multiple threats.

Jonathan DeNardo Statement

The stylist who worked on Nancy Pelosi’s hair, Jonathan DeNardo, said in a statement through his attorneys he would not have gone forward with the appointment without Kious’ approval. During a phone call in which he sought Kious’s approval, DeNardo claimed, she made “several vitriolic and incendiary comments” about Pelosi. DeNardo alleged that Kious blamed Pelosi for suspending eSalon’s business operations.

He alleged that Kious has been operating her salon contrary to guidelines and contrary to her statements on Fox News. DeNardo also alleged, “Ms. Kious has also been actively encouraging and almost forcing stylists who operate at eSalon to violate such orders for her own financial benefit in the form of receiving lease payments.” He said that Kious’s motivations are political.
