Ashley Holmes

Real Kid of New Jersey, Ashley, gives her take on the Danielle drama this season.

on Jun 8, 20100

 

Woo hoo! I have a blog! I just wanted to start by thanking all of my fans, and fans of the show that show me so much support every day on my Twitter and Facebook. YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST! As for the haters, keep hating! I'm flattered that you would take time out of your day to tell me you don't like me, love me or hate me ... it's still an obsession :) As my cousin Lauren so perfectly put it, "Seeing crazy people attack my family and me on Twitter doesn't faze me. I've done nothing to them so obviously they are so miserable with themselves they feel the need to say mean things. Don't waste your time...it doesn't bother me. I'm flattered you think of me that much, good or bad! Misery loves company!" Ditto!

Well, I think it's fair to say this season has been crazy so far, eh? I've been reading the other blogs and I would like to state for the record that NO, I was not "giving BJs at the age of 17" as Danielle said. I also HAVE NOT EVER been kicked out of any school I have attended. I went to a public school for two years. Half way through my sophomore year I moved to Texas to live with my dad for a little while. I wanted a change. (For those who have been asking me, YES my biological dad and I are EXTREMELY CLOSE.) I went to a private Christian school down there and got all As and Bs, so when I moved back my mom put me in a private Catholic school because she said that I "obviously do better in a private school setting." I think we all know what happened there if you saw season one. HAHA! Fail. The first month of my senior year I was still attending Catholic school. I was dealing with some girls there, you know, THOSE GIRLS. It was stupid high school drama. I was being bullied pretty badly, so badly that I have a special place in my heart for the organization 'To Write Love on Her Arms.' Anyway, I had really good friends there, but honestly I had more at the public school and I wanted to enjoy all the fun public school stuff during my senior year. I LEFT BY CHOICE. I'm so sorry that you felt bad to "hear that" Danielle, at least now you know the facts. Also, I GOT MY DIPLOMA, NOT A GED, thank you for asking.

OK THIS EPISODE, I’m sure I won’t have to say much. My mom pretty much covers EVERYTHING that I want to say. HAHA! But I guess I’ll start with Teresa. LOVE LOVE LOVE her! Who doesn't? I think it's cute how she brags about Gia. Every parent brags about his or her kids every now and then. Of course the other parents there are going to roll eyes and hate, they're stage parents. Have you ever seen pageant moms? HAHA! People are competitive, especially when their kids are involved. So you go Teresa! Gia is such a little ham; she deserves to be bragged about. Also, I say keep the Jersey accent too, it makes her HER! Stick to modeling if it's that big of a problem. SHE'S GORGEOUS!

Dude, I nearly spat coffee everywhere when you said on a recent episode that you have 'handled plenty' so far after stating you had a 10 - 2 job. A reality star that needs a reality check. Now my country is a bit behind on episodes so I sincerely hope you've grown up, realized how incredibly lucky you are and gave got your career sorted. More than anything, I hope you are wirkkng fullt time to truly appreciate the value if money and time. At age 20, I had finished my degree, was working every spare second I had and had saved enough to make an offer on a house. I am nearly 30 now, have my own home, work full time and run my own business. I work an average of 15 hours a day and yes that includes weekends. My commute To work in an hour a half each way. Now, no one likes work (that's the understatement of the century) and I wish more than anything for a few days off but it is a fact of life that you need to be self-sufficient especially in your 20s. I hope you realise how stupid your comments about working 5 hours a day, having to get up early and commute etc. Stop making excuses for your laziness and wake up and smell the coffee.

Hi Ashley. I watch the show and I'm not sure if what I see is just for tv or it's real. You are a smart, beautiful young girl with amazing talent. I think your decision to move away from your parents is good. You need to make your own decisions. You are an adult now and need to take complete charge of your life. I am so sorry for the way the adults in your life are treating you. Good luck. Debbie

Ashley, your just a little girl in a big girl body, saddly enough, some young girls grow up faster than others, and you are in the other group, but not to worrie, it will come, some day you become a lovely old lady, if you dont start now, good luck

Ashley, I would be proud to have you as my daughter, your mom is one of my favs on the show, but she should be proud that you took up for her. I do not allow my kids to fight, but the crazy ass Daniele for sure got what she deserves. I really don't think she is all there. She is the biggest drama queen Bravo has ever put on any of the housewives. I try to remember this is a show and hope she is not like that in real life. HAHA her little body guard she has looks like a roach (just nasty), oh well he fits her perfect. She does stupid shit just for attention. I think the father should really take those girls away from her because of some of the trash she keeps around her. Surely the judge will see she is freakin crazy and just laugh in her face and drop all of it. Good Luck you did nothing wrong, except you did not snatch all that weave out.

hey shley, i am 19 and from what i have seen on the show and read on the bogs if you dont react to the things danielle says you wont give her the satifaction of getting to you. i think if u dont say of make comments about the stupid stuff she does it will lose its edge for her and she will stop. but how you talk to your mom and the additude you give off is very immature and being 19 isnt an excuse to be that way. I have found that if you are nicer to the ones around you (your mom!) that it will come back to you, more people will support what you say and do. if you really look up to your aunt dina then follow in her foot steps. Be the better person and focuse on the good and the positive in life.

Ashley you have so many people telling you what to do that I will try not to do that. Hate is such a negative emotion that it zaps you of your life. I did not realize that untill I survuved several brushes with death. I let it all go and the freedom I got was total freedom. I would also like to say that we have all at one time been in a situation that there is no time to think, and therfore the concequinses can be terrible. My oldest son was in the wrong placxe at the wrong time and his consequece was 35 years in prison, he has been there for 20 years and has missed his entire life. He has lost his father, both sets of grandparents, missed seeing his daughter grow up, and will probably lose me before he gets out. No he did not kill anyone, he made a bad decision and has had to pay. I know your probably are saying what does this have to do with me, well you reacted and made a bad decision, you are lucky this time but if there is a next time , the consequinces could be real bad. Listen to your mom and Chris they love you and will do anything for you as long as you help yourself. Plan your future and get busy making your dreams happen. Let go of the Danielle hate and fdree your mind.

Ashely I love all you speak your mind!! And thank you for pulling Danielle's hair and I know it's wrong but all the viewers were dying for that to happen to Danielle to put her back into your place!! One thing I don't like is that I wish you were nicer to your mom because she obviously loves you and wants the best for you!! Be nice to her PLEASE!!

Love ya,

Juliane xoxo

I do agree with Angarcia1. Your stepfather Chris is right your mother can handle herself and fight her own fight. Stay out of it, it is not your place.

A viewer Ur aunt Carolyn was right u should just ignore her! It's really not that serious! You look immature on show not just with this situation but with your Mother too! I understand ur 19 and all but u should respect ur elders and if u can't do that then u should let ur Mother handle the problem! Ur a very beautiful young lady n i would hate for u to end up in jail behind a DRAMA SEEKING QUEEN! Sweetie don't even waste ur time on her! Just live ur life n just FORGET about it because in the end u are going to lose!

Ashley..i think you have a good heart and i dont blame you for pulling her hair..my moms my best friend and if i heard someone hit her..id probably do a lil more than a hair tug lol but seriously...your mom seems really stressed with everything that goes on and for her sake i think you should show a little more respect.Your moms always gonna be there for you..thats why you need to be respectfull and not argue with her..im 20 and its really hard for me to not argue with my mom but...your parents give up so much for you and do so much for you that the least you can do is be respectfull and i also have a step dad and you seem to have a great realationship with him so i suggest you try to keep it that way...on a softer note...love ya and love your family!

Ashley. I don't like Danielle, but honestly you need to find something better to do with your life than hate on another person. You are no better than her with this immature behavior. Its time to grow up!

You are a young woman, you have the rest of your life ahead of you. PLEASE LISTEN to your mother and father!! Pride comes before fall, you are headed in the wrong direction, and it's foolish to not heed wise counsel!

Ashley, I just wanted to say ,your intentions are good but you have more productive things to do with your time ,than waste it on Danielle. A little advice ,just do what Dina did and completely delete Danielle from your life completely. You have bigger and better things to do ,than let this negativity in your life. All in all the dramas not worth it ,never.

Ashley, I want to say to start that I don't like Danielle. I do belive she is a little crazy but it seems that you just love to hate this woman. It is evident in the video that you just jumped in glee to go pull this womans hair. Its between you and God to sit there and lie by saying you did it because you thougt Danielle hit your mom. You know that is not true. To every action is a reaction and I am sorry to say but you pulled her hair and hard, you deserve to have the charges pressed against you. The negative energy you put out is come back at you...I hope for your sake and for that lovely woman...your mother that you will stop. Try defending your mother another way, don't make her cry anymore.

Ashley, You and your mom are one of my favorites on the show. Caroline is my first choice of favorites. She tell's it like it is, but does it in a classy way. You are a beautiful girl, and don't let someone like Danielle drag you down. Apparently she's got issues and is unhappy in her life that she thrives on drama. Do you plan on going to college anywhere? I do respect you for taking up for your mother I would have probably done the same or worse if someone hurt my mother. Alway's protect your mother, but try to do it in the right way. I know in the heat of the moment it's easier said than done. Take care girl, lots of love, and let your fans know if Danielle brought charges against you.

What happened that made you pull out D's hair extensions?

From what I read, you were found guilty doing so in a court of law...

What was your punishment?

Since that event precedes your first blog entry here...

What is the scoop on that?

It would make sense that perhaps maybe she did feel threatened by you since you got yourself mixed up in a physical altercation with her before...

You are lucky she didn't file a restraining order on you.

You are head and shoulders above her and your life is just beginning unlike others. Tune her out forever!

Wish you all the best.

Ashley,I don't know how to use computers good but I wish you would get this message.My daughter is 22 yrs old and looks exactly like you.I would love to send you a pic of her.I don't mean to sound like a wierd person but if I could send you a pic of her,you would see how much that you have a twin!Not only do you two look alike but from what I see on the show,you two have the same personality.I just had to tell you and your mom,you have a twin.

You know all your Texas family has your back. Don't mess with Texas isn't just a saying! We love and miss you. Give all the family there smooches from us. I so want to apprentice at the Brownstone. Tell your mom to keep riding your tail it shows how much she loves you. You know I'd be the same way. Come see us soon. We are all melting in the Texas heat. Hugs and kisses, Aunt Cass

Ashley, I think it's awesome how you stick up for/are so close to your family. I was brought up in a broken family and would love to know the true feeling of home. I know the feeling of moving and not always fitting in with a private school (so clingy, right?). That's why it's always important to have your family there at the end of the day. Just remember that. Your little brothers will grow up so fast, before you even realize it/ Just lake sure to be a special part of their lives, as i wish i could have been with mine. You and your family are amazng, and i will always be a supporter. P.S. Alby is pretty much amazing, so listen to his advice with boyfriends lol

Omg!! Ashley is one of my favs and what you said to danielle was neccasary and no one likes danielle! she pobaly has only max. 20 fans! i think you shouldn't waste your time talking about her, but without danielle on the show means no drama and without drama it wouldn't be housewives!

Ashley: I am sure that Jacqueline and Chris, your Mother and Father, would agree that you should practice what you preach - i.e., you say on your blog: "As for the haters, keep hating! I'm flattered that you would take time out of your day to tell me you don't like me, love me or hate me ... it's still an obsession :) As my cousin Lauren so perfectly put it, "Seeing crazy people attack my family and me on Twitter doesn't faze me." So then stop worrying your Mom and Dad and stop it with giving Danielle attention and "flattering" Danielle and trying to defend your family. We all know Danielle is not worth it, and your Mom and Dad don't want you to get in trouble... No parent does. Your Mom probably doesn't even like your writing what you have written in your blog -- please listen to her... No one likes to see their teenager write impudent remarks.

This is much better Ashley, but I think it would be healthier for such a beautiful young girl to just move on and forget about people like Danielle, she won't change but you can be like your Aunt Dina and cut people like that from your life. Enjoy your youth and your family... don't waste too much time on her.

Ashley, I want to tell you first I have an 18 yr old daughter, who at times like yourself, is rough around the edges. You like her are so beautiful. From the things you have spoken about your aunts, Teresa and your Mom, I can tell that you, like my daughter, is very loving person. So I'm gonna give you a little advice cause sometimes you may not be hearing your Mom just like mine doesn't hear me. Have respect for the adults around you ESPECIALLY for your MOM she's a wonderful person who only wants success for you. Don't get involve in the Danielle trash your way to good for it. You have a great opportunity with this show and your blog, put positive things out there for young people to see show them what class truly is. Wishing you all the best success.

OMG! LOVE IT!! You are too funny! The square tit thing was freakin HILARIOUS!!

But seriously, just let the garbage go. For a grown woman to attack a young girl and spread those disgusting lies proves once again that your aunt was very correct in calling her garbage!

And really, this blog is HILARIOUS!!! Oh, and also, give your mom a break. I have an 18 yr old son myself and we are like oil and water. If he would just SHUT UP when I am ranting and raving at him, things would all be fine. Your mom loves you, and like all other mom's (well except maybe that skank Danielle), we all want what is best for our kids and to protect them from all harm, no matter what age they are. And as mom's, we sometimes tend to go overboard, and we tend to scream and yell alot...that is just the nature of the beast! Just give her a break, she loves ya! LOL

I think you are the snottiest young lady if that's what you actually want to call yourself! You should be ashamed of yourself how you act towards your mother on national television. It is a disgrace!

Hi Ashley I wish that you would get a long better with your mom... she loves you. When you're a mom someday -- you'll understand. Best of luck to you and your family.

Danielle just needs to go back to the hole she came out of. Do not let her push your buttons.. Bravo should be ashamed for letting her stay on the show. She has pulled the Hells Angels and felons into the picture?? She needs to go before someone gets hurt.. Stay away from bantering back and forth with her...she is crazy and you never know what a crazy person is going to do..

P.S..give your mom a break, she loves you and all good moms are concerned with how their kids are doing:) It will get better....

Dee Dee

I don't blame you for saying that to danielle. In fact, i probably would of said a lot worse. You and your family are better off without her. You all should just cut off all contact from her, no matter what she says or does. All she wants is a reaction, so don't give her that.

Ashley,I think you are a very pretty young woman,But you need to lighten up on your mama.Girl don't you know that in the end your mama is going to be your true and real friend all the way through and to the end,And back again.When you find yourself without anybody to lean on,Including your man.I'm not saying he won't be around,I'm saying that even if he is around,Your mama will be the one that will be there for you.Even if it is just to let you vent whatever it may be on your mind that your man just doesn't understand,Cuz he's a man.I wish you and your man all the best.I pray that you and your mom will one day be just as close as I'am with my mother.

Ashley, you are so disrespectful to your mom that its sad. Its crazy that you go over your bf's mom house and clean the whole house (who does that any way???) When your mom had to beg you to clean your room at home. How can you treat someone else's mom like a queen and treat your mom like crap??? I am 19 and would never talk to my mom the way you talk to your mom (because I would be knocked unconscious). To call your own mother a b*tch is beyond the lowest ever. I was so glad when she threw you out after being disrespectful (in front of other adults!!!) to her. Your parents are the best ever (behind my mom and dad :}). Its just disgusting the way to talk to your mom and it is not cute. I'm not saying you're a bad person but you do need to do a self check on yourself.

The situation with Danielle was not for you to address. Have you ever heard the saying "stay in a child's place?" I understand that she's off in the head but that had nothing to do with you. Why go out of your way or waste time making up a "I hate Danielle page"? That's just letting everyone see that you and Danielle need to get a life or a job (or in your case go to school). Your mom and aunts ignored her, you should have just followed their lead instead of adding more fuel to the fire. Just because you're 18 does not mean that you are grown and from the looks of things you have a lot of growing up to do. If you don't believe me go back and re read your blog. It looks as if my 14 year old cousin typed this.

On the subject of school, you are so blessed to have parents that are able to send you to the school of your choice and you decided to "sit out"? Instead of going to school you move in with a "friend"? Are you serious??? That just does not make any sense. I hope next season you're in school instead of entertaining mess that has nothing to do with you because **A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE**
