Merry Chrismukkah!!! Hope everyone enjoyed the festive cheer in this week’s episode!
I love going to the South Hampton Social Club in the summer -- it’s a great place to be single and mingle. Some of you were wondering who made my orange dress from this episode -- it is one of my absolute favorite designers -- Diane Von Furstenberg (DVF for short). And the gold hoop accents were Tory Burch.
So let’s get to it…..
Ashlee is correct: “Mortified” is not the word I should have used; “moronic” is!
Ask Ashlee if Clark Kent ever ended up taking her on a date or better yet taking off that sticker from his reading glasses. I guess I’m the odd woman out for not thinking it was cute to call your parents when flirting with a cutie. In fact, why don't you all tell me if my flirting protocol is dated -- iewers, please tweet me @joey_Lauren #Santa with your thoughts on best flirting practices, and worst practices for that matter. I can't wait to read them!
I did find it funny that as I am aggressively trying to slam dunk my point home, Clark Kent asks me to come sit next to him! Perhaps that was more sexy than calling my dad, which by the way is creepy. I guess we will have to tune in and see if Ashlee “always gets what she wants” outside of her familial domain. In all sincerity, I really do hope she does fall in love (and soon). I think it would help her grow into a nice young woman and maybe even expand her views too.
Don't bother with mama dukes she is soooooooo jealous of you she can not stand herself You make her feel so bad about herself She is so threatened by you and your future success She is a 30 year old women with no job no house no education no money of her own who lives at home so her fat lazy ass can have her mom cook do her grocery shopping wash her dirty laundry and clean her room She pretends to live a lavish lifestyle that is a total lie Ashlee has nothing to offer anyone not even herself and that's why she does not like you Don't worry about her liking you, she never will, because she never will be like you Leave her right where she belongs driving her father's car while living with mommy and daddy You just keep being you and soon you will pass her in your future Bentley that you will buy on your own with the cash your gonna make with KISSAMINT You can soon wave at her in your rear view mirror So don't waste your time with the little troll She is nothing nice You don't want a friend like her anyway Who cares if she ignores you when you talk its only because she wishes she was you so bad
I agreed with your thoughts on Ashley with Clark Kent, I think any man would have been scared off.
Its ok to approach a guy, compliment a guy, make obvious jokes when flirting so long as he is doing the same... Clark didn't compliment Ashley at all after she said he reminded her of superman which to me says he wasn't really interested. I think if he was he would have found a reason to say something nice to comment on about her. " Thank you, I think you have a beautiful smile..." ,something to recipricate. Then calling Hal turned Ashley into a joke b/c it made it seem like she seriously wanted to marry a cute guy she met a minute ago. It took Chanel's joke that this was Ashley's future husband too far. It went from cute and flirty to scary and embarrassing, she shot herself in the foot with that call. Chanel was also to blame in that situation by starting the husband talk and getting involved at all, it just made Ashley seem desperate for a husband. The only reason to get involved when a friend is flirting is if the guy is a creep and they need an escape.
As a friend you should have not said anything till after she scared him off. Tell her later, "nexttime wait to call Hal when no men are there, b/c it made you seem serious about wanting to marry him within a minute of sitting down." You unintentionally made the situation more awkward and hurt her feelings. It would have been obvious to everyone later b/c Clark switched gears and wanted to sit with you. Also If he asked me if I'd switch and sit with him, I would have told him to find me later to grab a cocktail once your friends find other interesting Man to mingle with so you don't come off a man stealer (you don't want Eric's reputation).
Btw I love your Kissamint idea and I don't think it needs re-branding. Maybe have some sexier names for some of the flavors would be funny, some that also are aimed at men so they'll buy it also, b/c some guys have really horrific breath.
You and Amanda are definitely the smartest of the Women on the show. The rest seems to be very superficial and/or childish for their age.
Can you tell me where you got your black shrunken leather moto jacket? Love it. What brand is it?
Thanks, and love the show!!

Hi Joey, Casey needs to come out of her cage and experience the real world. She's been caged for years.
Joey, You are in the real world, so proud of you for standing up for all of us that where born with plastic spoons, we earn everything we have. We work hard and would not want it any other way. Don't worry about your dads approval you are the only one that needs your own approval. As long as you know you are headed in the direction you want too go keep going don't look back. You can accomplish anything you want in life as long as you keep the vision and work hard and never forget God in the picture you will get there.
For a forty-one year old mother and a grandmother of one(at a young age), and also trying to help with my husbands company, I haven't had much time to watch different things on TV. I was curious today and just finished watching the show. It was nice to see feelings and actions that seemed genuine on this show as opposed to Real Housewives (I didn't even know people could be that shallow). So it was a nice surprise. You have to be the most mature one on the show from what I have seen,( you didn't play it up for the camera) and I really liked Channel and how proud she is of her religion. It was nice to see her want to share that with her friends. Casey could use a friend like you also. I have known girls like Erica that have turned into women that still have the same personality as they did in High School. I understand where Casey is coming from and I hope she can be more trusting, because it sucks not being able to trust women or men in life. I learned the hard way. Just beware though, because one day Erica might hurt you by hitting on the man you love. Both you and Casey are naturally beautiful and you will have no problem finding the right one one day when you guys are ready. Ashlee needs to grow up a little if she wants to find a man. I agree..I would have been embarrassed also...even at the age of thirty.
You are not going to judge Erica who is a great big ball of mess, but you are judging Ashlee because she made a fool of herself in front of another guy? You say that you are better off keeping your mouth shut in situations where you really should have opened it (the drunk guest you brought to a party), yet you feel the need to tell people you are "mortified" when your friends are just having a good time. Give me a break. You are a hypocrite.
