Ashlee comes clean about her health scare on the season finale.

Aug 5, 2013 - The Dish0

On Princesses: Long Island, Ashlee White is always the life of the party. But on last night's season finale, she reveals that after an unexpected health scare last year, life was anything but a good time.

At Chanel Omari's apology ceremony, Ashlee opens up about suffering a stroke last year. "I lost my speech. I couldn't talk. I lost my balance. I was bed-ridden for eight months. I lost my short-term memory." 

"I knew Ashlee was sick last year, but I never knew how bad it was," Amanda Berntoncini reveals. "Your health is everything."

Always the optimist, Ashlee learned the biggest life lesson from her experience: second chances are what really matter in life.

"I have took my second chance and I have made it into this life that is so worthwhile," she shares. "But it will never be the same."

Ashlee doesn't let Erica Gimbel, Amanda and Joey Lauren off easy. Their decision to spend the day on Erica's boat instead of rushing to her side left Ashlee crushed. The girls try to defend themselves and insist they were concerned, but Ashlee and Casey Cohen aren't convinced.

"When a friend is a friend, you would stand and take a bullet for that person," Casey says. "That's where the loyalty should be."

Even though Amanda, Erica and Joey insist they were worried about their friend, Ashlee is just thankful that she's safe and in good health. "I am so proud that I'm not on a milk carton."

Watch the revealing moment from the Princesses Long Island finale below.

I have to agree with a previous poster, that never have I had such a lack of sympathy for someone who has such a serious type of illness like Lupus.  However, I happen to know others who share that diagnosis and who, instead of using it as an excuse for bad behavior (as you clearly do here, Ashlee), actually find themselves becoming stronger, nicer, and more humane.  Or doing something positive about it like helping to raise money for or awareness of the disease.  I know that that will be a serious challenge for you, but what do you want to be known by, your 'enfant terrible' behavior or how you dealt with a serious auto-immune disease??  Maybe reviewing this season's episodes will help you, but only (I think) if you can manage to watch them with an open mind and heart.  Somehow I doubt that, for in your little bubble, you apparently can do no wrong.  How can you NOT see your consistently revolting and immature behavior???  Mean-spirited, selfish, intimidating, petty....god, I need a Thesaurus to begin to describe your awful-ness, honey.  Face it, you started this feud with your former friend Joey because she wasn't from the right part of town. Yuck. That is one of the definitions of "bad person," by the way. 

But beyond your sad personality problem (whatever that may  be), I have been incredibly appalled by your vicious twisting of the chronology of events as they transpired on this series.  Maybe it will take having been recorded on a reality show to get you to realize your awful-ness and to begin to change.  Face it Ash, this year there was a camera to record your horrid behavior.  Too bad for you, as all of the viewers out here can see how you pathologically twist words, events and meanings to get your way or to trash a former friend.  You really should be ashamed of yourself.  And so should your parents, who seem quite eligible to win the Worst Parents of the Year award (Enablers Division).

I just hope you realize what you did to your friend Chanel. She was looking for you for a long time and very very upset.  Especially after learning of your stroke, it made it worst knowing what you did to your friend. Everything is not always about you Ashlee.

Really sorry about your health scare and hope you stay in good health for many years to come. Now that your are in good health you should consider how lucky you were and be a nice person and not always trying to play the victim. You have good friends that do care about you but really don't need to play your high school games. I think you are lucky to have any friends at all. Did you watch your own episodes showing it was you that started all the issues. You better hope you parents keep making money cause we know you won't be able to get a job ever. You're thirty think about it!

I feel sorry for the people who try to be a friend to Ashlee.  They are wasting their time because all she will ever be is a

attention/drama queen for the rest of her life.  It is a shame that she tried to bully her friends into feeling sorry for her again and again and again.  They said it best when they said you are a grown woman.  I guess having a stroke makes you a drama queen and too old to act like a brat!!!

Ashlee - I have never felt less sympathy for someone so young, who has had such a horrible health issue. But you tooted your own horn, as usual, so much.. that I only felt contempt. You did not apologize for one thing, even when you threw your bread, though every one else did (however, I don't really count Casey's because she only ever apologized to herself). No one is perfect, but you (and Casey) seem to think you are. I am so fortunate to know no one like you in real life. I thought the stereotypes of spoiled, entitled, conceited, delusional little rich girls was exaggerated. You proved me wrong. You should be ashamed of the monstrosity that is your personality.
