Ashley Holmes

Ashley talks about the hair pull, her relationship with the Manzos, and rising above the negativity.

on Jul 23, 20100

 

Hey everyone! I'm sorry that my blog is so late! This past week three of my friends celebrated birthdays! I've been busy. Let's get started. Well, where should I begin?

The show opens with Joe and Teresa getting the girls ready for karate. How freakin' cute are they? That whole family is just so precious. LOVE LOVE LOVE them! Was anyone aware that Joe is a black belt? How awesome is that?

As for Danielle's boxing scene - seriously? What a joke. "I find it pathetic that 7 police cars arrived and no arrests were made." Well Danielle, I find you pathetic in general. A few people were asking why her girls were there with her. Really? It's Danielle, when aren't her girls in awkward situations with her? I think it's perfectly fine, in my opinion, for a mother to bring her children to a defense class. It's good to have a basic knowledge of self-defense. It is not OK, in my opinion, for a mother to bring her children to a defense class, and then proceed to talk shit on people. Whatever. I also find it a joke that Danielle claims that she's NEVER thrown a punch in her life...hmm. Really Danielle? Really? The part that made me laugh most is when Danielle was mocking us and said, "I don't know why you keep saying I'm the victim," and then responded with, "Well bitch 'cuz I am! Stop chasing me." Yeah Danielle, you're as innocent as a bunny. As far as us chasing you goes, I don't know where you've been, but that episode is over, no one is "chasing" you anymore. You said that I ran at you, and pulled your hair as you were being carried away. If you watch the footage, you can see I wasn't really running. Oh, and you weren't being carried, you were walking, being escorted by your bodyguards. Which reminds me Danielle, considering that I put my hand on your bodyguard's arm before I pulled your hair, and he did nothing. I can't help but wonder, did he slip up on the job? Or did you tell your bodyguard that if one of us were to get physical to try not to respond? I think you brought them for show, pushed buttons, and then told them to let whatever was going to happen, happen. Just sayin', but I don't know, I'm just trying to get inside your head for a second, but then again I never really was that good at calculating. He did push Teresa, so maybe it's just me, who knows. Let's bring it back to the comment you said about how, "It only takes one good smack in the head to make a person never walk again." Yeah Danielle, you really sound like a victim. Was that a threat directed towards me? Hmm.. interesting.

Let me say this now - in the scene with my mom and Kim G., THERE WASN'T ANY HAIR IN MY HANDS AFTER I PULLED DANIELLE'S HAIR. NONE. Rewind the tape, pause it, do whatever you need to, it's a quick scene, and you can see that I have NO HAIR in my hands. I didn't "drop" anything. Kim G. knows that, for the record. At what point would she have picked up hair that I "dropped" and delivered it to Danielle anyway? Also, why would she even pick them up and deliver them? What makes me angry about this scene, is that Kim G. told me (and later told my mom) was that Danielle's extensions were loose, but that Danielle pulled them out herself when she was in the car. Just sayin'. Kim G. is not really on my good side right now.

unfortunately I missed the last episode and I am so dying to know what was the outcome of the court case and what was Ashley's sentence. Anyone know?

I have to say Ashley, I give you alot of credit. You really did handle that mess like a true lady your Mom and Dad (Chris) raised. At first, a few weeks ago, I felt bad for Danielle. We ALL make mistakes, and you see yours and are doing your best to correct them. I haven't seen Danielle take responsibility for her actions. Playing this out on television for millions to see, is something I couldn't do, it must take an enormous amount of strength to go thru this week after week. Maybe the haters should give credit where credit is due!! Being from Jersey, and Italian, I know tempers run high, must be in the water!! LOL Best of luck to you and your family Ashley, you all deserve it!!!!

I completely agree with Caroline on this situation what you did Ashley was wrong but the reason behind it had good intentions. Danielle feeds off of everything you do. When you pull her hair or write stuff about her that just makes her want to be more devious which in turn drives you nuts. Danielle is poison and that is just the type of person she is nothing can come good around being around her or in her life. You will soon realize that it's a waste of your energy to even think about her. You have to deal with the consequences of what has happened just keep in mind next time something like this pops up just be the bigger person.

Ashley, im not going to say what happened is wrong but... im sure that sometimes some people cant learn to stop stuff and make up things just to get attention. as parent i know how my kids would react to the same. I hope that this issue has worked out for you and your famly for the better now as for Danielle I have a message for her GROW UP! QUIT STARTING CRAP YOU CHICKEN OUT OF! as for your mom i love her on the show!and Treasa well all except for two.

Hi Ashley I can clearly see why you would feel the need to stick up for your family ess you're mom. Loyalty is admirable but letting danielles negativity take over your life is hurting you .She has been waiting for an opening to get at you and your family and you gave it to her .Don't help her ashley just sit back and watch her self destruct .As far as the way she treats her girls .I tend to agree something just isn't right .I feel really bad for them but the way I look at it is this .Their father see's what is going on and mental health professionals are watching this show .

Ashley, My only comment to you is to show more respect to your mom. You consentrate too much on Daneille.

Danielle daughters are respectfull and I have yet to see her cry due the disrespect from her daughters. Your mom is in constant tears due to lack of respect.

My heart breaks for your mom.

You need to lose your Attitude and Grow up. Learn to have respect for your parents who love you. I was living halfway across the world alone when I was 18 and learned how to take care of myself. Shame on you. There is no excuse for touching another human being in anger. You need anger management classes and learn to show remorse for your actions. Your mom is so good to you and you treat her badly with your words. Shame on you. Grow up and get over yourself.

Gee, Ashley I sat here and read others blogs posted on the 26th and 27th, then I got to yours and wow it was like I was blasted with this clear hatred of Daniella. Yes you don't have to like her, you can hate her etc. but I am so sad for you that you don't see the condequences of physically assaulting someone...stoping calling it just a hair pull...you laid your hands on someone and physically assaulted them. The degree at this point doesn't matter the fact that you did it to someone who is more then 20 years your senior does. This wasn't a teenage HS brawl. You viciously attacked a 48 year old woman. At this point it no longer matter what she has said or done to you...once you physically assault someone that is all that ends up mattering. Yet, you have shown time and time again not just on a show taped 6 months ago but now in this blog typed on July 23rd 2010 that you show no remourse or understanding of the consequences of your actions. The thing that is even sader is that whwtever message you want to send about her is deleted because of your actions. I won't even discuss the verbal attacks in both directions because you took it to a level you had no legal right to do. And that is all that counts. Stop bashing her and start concentrating on getting your life back together. Now that the tape is public knowledge is shows that you did this...you will have to answer for it, you can't get around that tape and you did tell her, "who do you thik you are!" then pulled her hair..in that context that is a threat as good as I am going to kill you because you paired your words with the actions of physical assault. Oh and please don't think I am a "hater" as you put it. I actually say all this with the hope that if you keep hearing thsse things you can understand the gravity of the siutation...even Caroline is truly struggling to see how you are remorseful...I am sure if she read your 7/23 blog she would agree you are not. And whether you quote your mom's words who is now emoitional because you are her daughter and she is so scared for you she is lashing out You are demonstrating that yes she is not making a good example of her woeds to "ignore" Danielle but parents aren't perfect either, your mom makes mistakes but your mom didn't physically assault someone...you did and you did it recently, not 25 years ago and paid your debt. You now have to face up and if you do so honestly and truly apologize you will have grown from the experience. Good Luck...my heart goes out to your and your family. Oh and yes they are your family...I am so sorry anyone thought to imply otherwise...that is a shame. I can clearly see you are a part of the Manzo clan.

AShley, listen to your parents! They are trying to teach you a valuable lesson, but all you seem to know how to do is roll your eyes & laugh about it? GROW UP and stay out of business that doesn't really concern you. I don't think you have learn your lesson , but when your in front of that judge..you better not roll your eyes then...I wish you luck..Next time, just be the bigger person and leave or something?

Ashley; It is terribly hard for any 'older' teenager to accept direction and in your particular case you do have layers upon layers of emotional up sets. Your mom has done the best she knew how with the tools she had. Don't hold anyone responsible except you now. Direction and focus and positive self esteem is where your mind should be. Not that I think they are all great but a life coach may be in order. Good luck dear one.

Ashley, Although I do understand if you felt your heart sink hearing that your mother was struck by Danielle. Just maybe you should have found your mother before the pulling of her hair huh! I almost think that is just an excuse for you to confront her as you did. Your laughter about the legal situation that you are now in only shows your age and lack of respect you have for others including your parents. You should be grateful they are so willing to help you. Be a big girl and take their advice they are on your side. Stand up and make your parents proud, stop with the silly behavior.

You can't keep straddling the fence...it's time to grow up and take responsiblity for your actions. You can't keep depending on your family to clean up your messes. Danielle didn't hit your mother, and if someone told you otherwise...then it was a lie. She was too busy running from Theresa to do anything to your mom. Your mom was nowhere to be found when you pulled Danielle's hair. So,just be honest, you pulled her hair because you wanted to be a part of the drama, not because you were defending your mom. And the fact that you were bragging about it shows that you are no better than Danielle. What I found funny is that you weren't bragging about it to the police. The fact that you and Theresa acted like you didn't know what was going on was very immature. I agree with your step-dad. You are on your way to being like Danielle. It's obvious that Danielle has some mental issues..so what is your excuse for acting the way that you do? The only person that I feel sorry for is your mother, because as a mother she has to be there for you even though (in this instance)you are sooo wrong.

I hope you learn a good lesson from this mess.You can dislike someone but you cannot put your hands on them no matter how much they anger you!Because you acted before thinking, you made a skirmish into a big deal.I don't have a clue what your punishment will be but learn and never do this again.Danielle can be exasperating, but she's having the last laugh now!

LOVE IT!!
LOVE IT!!

ASHLEY, THANKS FOR MAKING THIS SEASON EVEN BETTER!!!!!

I don't think you're a bad person at all - I was once an immature young adult myself. I just want to let you know...I work at an adoption agency and we dig stuff up from when people were teenagers, even stuff that was "expunged" and it is definitely used to disqualify people from adopting a child. Before this, I worked in a position doing background checks for people wanting jobs - just regular jobs, not FBI or anything. So the point is, that you never know where life will take you...maybe you'll really want that certain job, or will experience infertility in a relationship and want to adopt a child. The things you do now will limit your opportunities. Danielle is not worth those types of outcomes. Please stay focused - good luck, you seem like a really good person.

Ashley,

Grow up! Forget about Danielle and live your life. You will be considered an adult, when you show your parents the respect they deserve and stop acting like a child. Best wishes with all your endeavors.

I don't know why your so proud of your "altercation" with Danielle, it didn't make you look cool or hard, you pulled her hair from behind. where i'm from we call that a coward! I cringe watching you. You are really immature for 19. All you did was validate all of her claims. You really shamed your family.

Girl get a life! Really! That's was not even your mom's fight, it was Teresa's! Ughh your logic and mind set has to be the most ridiculous, seriously. You can not rationalize and justify what you did, own it! We all make mistakes but you seem to think that this was deserved by Danielle and as annoying as she is, you have no right to be the one to punish her for being who she is! She hangs out with ex-cons, her whole love and light banter is B.S. yea sure we all know, but so what, WHO ARE YOU TO THINK THAT "YOU" CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!!! Girl your real family needs to give you a real intervention, some glasses, or something because you have tunnel vision and can only see your perspective(which is quite stupid, being frank)!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not a Danielle fan but get over her already!! I really feel for your mom and chris. You just don't seem to want to get it. I hope, for your entire family's sake, you've matured since all this was filmed and taken true responsibility. You have two brothers who will learn from you, good and bad!

Ashley, you can't live your life constantly being out to get Danielle. In life you're gonna face problems and people bigger than you and you can't spend all your energy trying to get them back. You're better than that and have a bright future ahead of you, if you make the right choices. Let it go and move on. I wish you the best, and a Life Coach doesn't sound like such a bad idea for you to consider. Anything to get you on the right track.

Ashley, Tough times calls for tough measures! I know you were trying to protect your mom... I get that! Your better then that! Don’t let Danielle pull you down. She is using you to get back at your mom, end of discussion! Be the beautiful “Lady” you are and feel sorry for her, because she is pathetic! Don't get me started there, not worth talking about. I want to see you move forward, and forget what is going on with Danielle so you can have a future! Nothing good will come from her involvement in your life! You have a precious mom, so be a loyal family member and give her the respect she so deserves! I am looking forward in seeing what good things are going to happen in your life! Best of luck!

hey i am a young lady too. i want to say respect and appreciate what you have and what people can offer you. i bet you can go to college and not have to work while some are working and going to school. if your parent turn their backs you will be doing it all on your own! i dont want to seem material but is this world, everyone wants the finer things in life and if you have it earn it right, not doing the mishaps that you do!

Honestly honey, let the adults deal with their own problems do not get involved. From the way you act, you are far from being an adult. Just because you are 18 does not mean you are an adult, legally yes, mentally hell no! If you want to be treated like an adult with no cerfue and all that jibber jabber then act like an adult!! Go get a job, pay for all your court fees, quit living off your parents then maybe you might have a say so, but until then do not get a head of your self thinking ypu run the show because as long as you live in mommys and daddys house, its mommys and daddys rules. So drop your attitude and grow up!!

--- To AlliViewerFL: You can tell your young too!! Do you not know the law? No matter how bad or not the situation may be, you cannot put your hands on some one else, period! That is why there is a charge called SIMPLE assult! It can be that simple! I really hope you are not a mother, from how nieve you sound I dont think so but just in case you are.. WAKE UP and QUIT making excuses for her! She brought this on herself, shelter life or not. I grew up pretty much just like her but I still know right from wrong it does not take a genius to figure that out!

you need help!
you need help!

Ashley, I was a teenager too but now you are an adult and it's time to start focusing on your future. Why aren't you in college? Do you have any aspirations beyond "still want[-ing] people to see Danielle for who she really is"? I think people can see Danielle quite clearly and please don't underestimate the intelligence of your viewers. Honestly, I fear one day you will look back at these clips and cringe with embarrassment. I frankly am embarrassed for you and it's hard to watch the show when you are on. Peace.

Whatever!
Whatever!

It sounds like you have moved on from the Danielle problem after filming was over. I know Bravo wants you to write about her because that keeps people interested and it keeps them insulting you. Hope you have moved onto better things and have better thoughts since the whole fiasco is really over. Or at least I hope for you it is. Best of luck with your charity.

Ashley! I understand your obsession with Danielle. Without wasting time explaining all the ins and outs, please listen to this- Everyone already KNOWS what Danielle is. People use her like she uses them. Kim G is on of those users. Unfortunately this show has given Danielle a platform to abuse as well. Time will heal all this, and one day you will forget Danielle's psychopathic ways.

Time to move on, make yourself your own best advocate and start concentrating on your own life. Wanna tick her off really good.. FORGET ABOUT HER! She thinks because you are not Chris' biological child that you can be picked on. She got learnt, and will continue to learn as she goes back to the coke house and you become the beautiful adult we all know you are going to be!

Ashley,

It is very concerning seeing you laugh at the charges brought against you. Your mom is right when she says you need to take these charges seriously. What you did was wrong. Not that I am a supported of Danielle because I am not. You can't put your hands on anyone. I love your mom and her beliefs. You need to be more like your mom. You need to grow up. I am not sure what the out come of these charges that have been brought against you, but hopefully you learned a lesion the hard way. Apparently, that is the only way you are going to learn anything in life. You are one hard headed girl.

Ashley, you need to stay in a kids place and let the grown ups handle the situation. Your mom and dad loves you and want the best for you and you should take their comments and sincere words and listen to them. They are telling you things that would help you not hurt you. I know I am a mother myself and no parent wants their child(ren) in the situation you're in now. You need to grow up and stop being so angry because one of these days you're going to find yourself in a situation that's absolutely too hard to get out of or that your parents cannot help you with. Another thing, your aunt Caroline haves your back and believes in you 100% and you should listen to her. She knows whats best for you, trust me, look at her children, they are absolutely the best. Caroline and her husband raised some terrific kids and you should be honored to have her on her side and giving you advice. I'll tell you what, if you don't listen to her, you do deserve whatever comes your way, because she's trying to help you before it's too late. Lastly, I agree with the viewer that said that your mother needs to take you off the show. You need to focus on yourself and get a job (a real job) and not have anything handed to you. Then maybe, just maybe, you will appreciate life my better. Love you Caroline!!!

Ashley,

You are so young. You are also very bright and beautiful. I have a niece who is just like you-sweet, adorable and hot-headed. Please don't be flip about your situation. You have so much potential and so much to offer/learn in your future ahead of you. Take your time with what you say and do. Think before you speak/act. Patience and a cool head will serve you well in the future.

Take Care.

Ashley,

Seriously, I can't wait until you get older and watch yourself on TV. You're going to CRINGE!!! Your poor boyfriend looks so freakin' embarrassed by you. And your poor mother. All she asks you to do is leave Danielle alone, but look at your post. I actually stopped reading after the first sentence. All it sounds like is, blah blah blah. Your entire life revolves around Danielle. You need to admit it. It's just pathetic. I am starting to take her side!! You're beginning to look like the psycho! You are a freakin' immature kid who tries to be hard. I'd love for you to come to my town and try that crap. You bragged about pulling hair....lmao! Ahhhh, I'd give anything to see you try that on someone your own age. You KNEW a 47 yr old wouldn't hit you back...that's where that bravery came from!

Why are your blogs so long? You give a play by play account of the show as if we didn't see the show. Hello! We saw the show. You don't need to recap it scene by scene. Get to the point.

Like everyone, I cannot stand Danielle. I would have defended my mom too. But, there are always consequences to actions. You keep laughing about things and not taking things seriously. You have attitude towards your mom and step-dad even though they are the ones helping you out. Are you paying for the lawyer? Are you handling the legal issues on your own? Are you living on your own? Are you paying your own bills? I'm 100% sure you are not. You think you are an adult, then do all these things on your own. So stop with the attitude and be thankful that you have a family that is helping you through this mess. What would you do if they didn't help you out? Have you stopped and thought about that?

You need to stay in your place as the little girl that you are and it's not your fault totally your mother needs to learn how to be a mother and keep you out of grown folks buisness. I blame your mother for raising such a disrespectful child she should have slapped the hell out of you when you pulled danielle's hair and as a real woman made you appologize and I don't think she would have pressed charges. Right is right and you are wrong!

I don't think you are reading all the response from your blog because if you were you are not applying it to yourself yyou are still Ashley that is so greedy to get some attention. Does anybody tell that snow cap doesn't look good on you?

Ashley, you have so many choices in life to do something positive with your life. Some young women do not have the kind of life or money. So stop thinking so hard about the petty things and do something else with your life you will not have time to think about Danielle. Respect your parents more make them proud not upset with you all of the time. Take Care Ashley
