First I would like to say that I had such an amazing time at the Gay Pride Parade in New York City this past weekend! It was nice meeting so many of you! I had a lot of fun! My Aunt Dina was on a float there too! Did any of you see her?
Also, I am getting involved with the organization To Write Love on Her Arms. I have a lot of great ideas planned, so look on my twitter for any updates on that and any other future plans I have! @_ashleyholmes ! Follow me! I love hearing from all of you.
OK, so this episode starts off with my Aunt Caroline having lunch with my Aunt Fran and my Aunt Cookie. How cute are they together? Aunt Fran made me laugh a lot in this scene. Ugh, I hate seeing my Aunt Caroline cry, I get teary every time. She’s a tough woman, so when she cries I can’t take it. It upsets me that my Aunt Caroline is getting so heartbroken about the fact that my cousins are growing up.
I don’t get why Danielle made such a big deal at Posche. As soon as Danielle walked into Posche, Donna quickly got off the phone with Kim D. and was ready to help Danielle. Then Danielle’s phone rings, and she left the store to stand outside. Danielle then proceeds to scare poor Jillian by telling her that she has "a little situation." Then Danielle storms back into Posche (while still on the phone with Jillian) and asks Donna (who has also continued her phone call) to tell Kim to please call her back. Seeing as Donna was on the phone, of course she is going to tell her to "hold on one second." I thought Donna’s behavior was perfectly acceptable. Kim D. then called Danielle back, and Danielle proceeded to tell Kim that it was bullshit that she was paying her water bill? Why is that so hard to believe? It’s not like Kim told her she had just gotten back from space or something. When Danielle finally storms back in to Posche, she begins to rant and ramble on to Kim D. about how she is unhappy and how Donna treated her "very unkindly." My favorite comment Danielle says is, "As your friend, I’m gonna say I love you too much to come in here and be treated like this." What? I know a lot of you are on edge about Kim G. and Kim D. I can’t talk about Kim G. yet, but I think you can start to see in this episode that Kim D. is pretty much fed up with Danielle and her behavior. Kim D. means well, she does.
The scene with my Aunt Caroline and Uncle Al in the kitchen made me so sad. I see what Caroline means by her kiddos not needing her as much as they used to. It’s sad. Though my Uncle Al made me laugh when he said, "How dare they grow up? That's rude!" He reminds me of Christopher so much. HAHA! Poor Aunt Caroline, I understand why she would want my Uncle Al to retire, but I also understand why my Uncle Al doesn’t want to. Who knows what the future holds, over all I think my Aunt Caroline will be OK.
....and i thought i was the only one who saw that.....!!!! I also believe that Theresa was not sincere as she claims to be when she just had to ask Danielle "how she was" at the fashion show. Then look how fast she was to show her mean side.
Just quickly wanna say your skin looked fine without makeup. So I don't know what you're referring to. We are usually are own harshest critic. Stay fabulous! You wore olive well and curls too and your smile goes great with your eyes. And yes, your friend Greg looked pretty darn good. My final comment about Danielle is that she said RHoNJ is a good job. She said that on the WWHL show with Andy Cohen. So yeah. Actress. However, acting still doesn't explain her texting and dark drama and why she always feels attacked. Be glad you have a loving sane family and strong extended family.
Bravo, I am dissapointed that you allowed an immature 18 year old to blog on this site. Her comments are senseless and ignorant. I have been a fan of the OC and NY housewives. The NJ housewives are ridiculous, classless, immature, and senseless. The Ashley episode has made me realized that the NJ housewives are bringing the entire franchise down. Please carefully evaluate this season. I just think that the NJ housewives are giving a bad name to the franchise. Just saying
Ashley respect your parents and yourself, and stay in your place. You are out of place with the behaviors you displayed with Danielle. Danielle's 15 year old daughter has more class and style than you; she may not like what her mother does, yet she respects her and is not caught up in adult business. Now! you fine youself in a legal matter, and I hope you get what you deserve because you were out of place. Get a life. "Love and Light"
Ashley, you're stalking Danielle. You're a hard-headed little girl that doesn't realize the consequences of your actions. You have your aunts and mom believing that Danielle is starting it with you, but you're not telling them the truth. They are supporting you being picked on when that's not the case. You're a beautiful little girl that is bound to stay in trouble until you realize that you are the common denominator in this terrible equation.
Wow... So many people forgot what it was like to be a teenager. I'm sure every person coming down on you was a perfect, rational, modest, and meek 18yr old.
I'm 24 now, and have come a long way from how I was at 18. One quote that a former professor of mine taught me always stuck in my mind: "It's what you learn after you know it all, that counts."
Just keep doing what you're doing if it's what you believe in.
interesting, you say you heard danielle hit your mom, which is why you pull her hair. But in the episode, before you pulled her hair, you were seen standing in the door way with your mom, curious, why didnt you ask your mom then? nice lie.
Ashley, There's an old saying that I'm sure you won't understand at your age right now...but hopefully some day you will, and that's: Hire a Teenager......While they still know it all.
This show has taken a serious Jerry Springer turn! Mellow it out and give Dinah's cats more camera time:)
You did NOT pull her hair because you thought she had hit your mom....you pulled her hair because "she's a bitch." That's the reason you gave right afterwards and you're only now changing your story to make yourself not look so bad.
Stop being such a freakin' moron, Ashley, and grow up!
Ashley, what you did by assaulting Danielle was wrong. Anyone who justifies what you did probably has a criminal record themselves. You're an adult, and should take some responsibility for your actions. You should apologize to Danielle, and pray that you don't end up with a criminal record yourself.
You are definitely the eppitomy of a teen age girl trying to move to adult hood! You need to take respoinsibility for your mistakes - you clearly wanted to get to Danielle and made a point of getting physical - that had nothing to do with your mom! Nice story about protecting your mom to try to get you out of trouble, but as an adult, you made the mistake and need to own it. Also, sweetie, I am a mom and grandmom, I know when kids are playing their parents - how dare you put the guilt of your own actions onto your mom!!! Danielle played you! You responded the way she wanted and she saw the perfect person to play her game - that is you! Jaqueline's former friendship has very little to do with it and you should never put that on your mom - be an adult and be responsible!
Why are you so disrespectful to your mother? Drama breeds drama and you should have listened to your mother. It's obvious that you care about your family and that is normal, but you really need to stop backtalking to your mother and calling her names. It does not make you look good.
Ashley, You can't fix crazy--best bet is to walk away, and not give her the satisfaction=Do you really care what CRAZY thinks-The world is watching and everyone knows. When you are right, there is no need to fight
The only thing you add to this show is to be used as a portrait of an example of how not to behave.. you are attention starved and exercise really poor judgement and have no appropriate decision making skills at all. You need to learn to respect all of your elders and know your place as a child. Your mother and father try and guide you and you just refuse to listen. You make a consciencous decision to constantly behave in a defiant immature little girl way.
Get a filter on your dirty mouth..get a job and some responsibility..stay out of all drama especially grown up drama where you have no business being since you are emotionally and mentally far from being a grown up. You think you know everything but you know absolutely NOTHING! You don't strike me as having any type of intelligence at all. Try and be a better role model for your siblings.
All I have to say is why is Ashley allowed on this show beyond just a child of one of the Housewives? Isn't this show about Housewives of NJ? She is 18 years old and has no clue. I think Caroline's sons story about her sons college situation is a bit more REAListic to being part of the storyline. Really...Really Bravo...stop trying to amp up the drama by adding this type of garbage REALity. I am no longer a viewer of this show!!!
please don't take this the wrong way because i know it must be difficult to have to confront things you do or say months ago on national television. if i were in your shoes i'd cringe a lot having to watch myself angry with someone (like your parents or derek) at one point in time when i might not be any more...it's got to suck to have to re-hash things said months ago. and i think your mom is awesome, but watching you call her out for laughing at your "beweaveable" FB comment with you and then acting outraged when your dad was in the room really struck me as a spot-on observation on your part. i think your mom means well but i also think there are times where she sends you mixed messages so in my opinion you were kinda right to tell her that was a "two faced" move to yell at you when she does things that aren't the most mature choice to make either.
When you act like an adult, you're treated like an adult. And when you act like a child, you're treated like a child.
Just remember that the next time you think you're being treated unfairly. You're 18, it's time to grow up.
ok, you are a beautiful young women with a lot going for you. Get into school and get a degree in whatever. Do not let mentally disturbed women pull you down to their level. Always conduct yourself with class. Everyone sees Danielle for what she is. Look to your aunt caroline as a role model. She stays out of the frey. Look to her for advice and take it.
You have slowly been getting on my nerves more and more each episode you are on. But after tonight's episode you may have more haters than Danielle(wow). You are either acting and if thats the case you should move to la immediately, because you can play a spoiled little brat to perfection. For someone who constantly talks about protecting her family why don't you start by not hurting your mother on national tv. Yes Danielle has been very strange but she has never physically tried to hurt anyone on the show. If you keep up with your behavior your next 15 minutes of fame will be read in the back of people magazine under the heading "legal issues" where it will talk about your sentencing for assault and battery.
Ashley did you notice that the hair clump was 5 times larger when she showed the camera's. I think she went and cut some out. be careful, girlfriend.
I feel for you Ashley. I have parents like yours. Money/Statis obsessed parents are a cancer. CUT THEM OFF! They put you into a messed up situation by their actions. Get independent and you won't have to be their puppet anymore! Parents should learn to treat kids with respect, not crazy blame and name calling.
You need help,you need to stay out of grown folks business. What do you do during the day. You have too much time on your hands and you ened to get it together.
Your mother is putting you too much in her business that has nothing to do with you. You lies are being played out on national television and the sad thing about this who is going to hire you. The choices you make for your life will come full circle and you will reap what you sow. Stop blaming Danielle for your life choices it is getting old and tired. I am sick of all your family and Teresa with this blame game. If your family has no control of their family and they allow one person to manipulate your family what a shame on them. But there is no way Danielle is committing all these awful things to your family. All of you stop playing the helpless role and get on with your dreadful lives.
Ashley, please listen to your parents. They love you, and only want the best for you. We all remember what it's like to be 18, but trust me you will grow up to apprieciate it.
Ashley I think what happened was a result of a slow build up after all the BS you had to deal with with this Prostitution/Coke Whore. I don't think it was right, but as someone with a bit of a short fuse, especially when I was 18...ha to be honest...well into my 20's.. but anyway, I understand where it came from. and nevermind everyone leaving comments abt respecting your mom, etc. I am sure you have heard it enough. You are young and it will come in time. I have an 18 yr old myself and it is just recently that he has learned all the lessons I have tried to teach him over the years. It's calle maturity and the only way to get it is with age. As for the fashion show, you did a fab job, you do not need to be a stick figure to be beautiful. And don't for a minute thing that all of those super-models dont have break outs themselves. That is what all of those make-up/air brush artists get paid for! LOL
I can't believe you would use violence to hurt someone. You should be ashamed of yourself my dear. Totally unacceptable.
Ashley,this is real life, not high school. The consequences are different in the adult world. How tacky to fight an adult as if she is a high school girl. How rude and tasteless. You have no power to change Danelle, just yourself.
Hey ashley I love you you were awesome in the last episode :)You deserve an award for what you did to danielle.! Love it.The gay communtiy loves you even more now :) love your mom too :)
Ashley, You're how old? And you want assault on your record for the rest of your life because-you're-18-and-can-do-what-you-want? Awesome! Maybe not so awesome. Just ask Danielle. She's got a record.... Go ask her.
Bravo PLEASE take down this blog. She's too young. It's inappropriate and unfair. Remember all the stupid things you did when you were 18? Would you want them out there in cyber space for the rest of your life? As Dr. Phil says about children under the age of 21 "....teens are impulsive and don't have the ability to control their impulses at this age...because their brains aren't developed enough..."
It's obvious that Ashley is blossoming into a beautiful young woman and at the same time, it's obvious she's not mature enough to edit herself.
Danielle totally deserved what she got, but we all know you didn't do it because you thought she hit your mom. You wanted in on the action and let your "bad temper" get the best of you. That "bad temper" excuse isn't going to last much longer. You better straighten up, girly. Mommy and Daddy aren't going to be there to save your butt every time your temper gets the best of you.
Hey ashley! im 17 and love the show!! i dont really see anything wrong with you having any involement. i thought it was funny!! i love your mom & Teresa. if i was in tht situation i wouldve grabed a handful too. im protective over my mom also. hope everything wrks out for the best.
Ashley, ignore the negativity. You are no different than any other teenage girl in the fact that you can talk trash to your mother, but no one else can. Also, I think regardless to what anyone thinks of you...you are an awesome young woman with a good head on her shoulder. You pulled Danielle's hair...I can understand why. There was a mob of people, your mother was lost in the crowd, you ASSUMED that she harmed your mother - the HUMAN nature part kicked in - flight or fight. As much as Danielle grates the nerves, try to let it go for sake of sanity. Each person knows what she is just by viewing her actions from week to week. You are much more loving, caring and protective of your family. Take care!
ashley i totally agree with why u pulled danielles hair!! and i thought it was hilarous yet not so good cuz u can get introuble for touching that women. but i know u meant well and so do some other ppl i would of done the same thing if i thought someone hit my mother but at the same time i deff think ur mom could beat the hell outta anyone that touches her!!!
Would normally never comment about a teenager, but Ashely has put her life on tv and throws a lot of stones so here goes... I think Ashely herself has a very dark side. Although she does some really stupid "teenager-ee" things that you can chalk up to her young age, what really gets me is that she knows exactly how to play her parents when she's in trouble. She is fearless of telling the truth (odd), always apologizes, and not in the "gotta say I'm sorry and sound like I mean it" kind of way like teeagers will begrudginly do. She actually tries hard to make her parents believe she's "owning" it. I don't buy it for a second though. One, because she seems to cover "devious" with "sweet & innocent", and two, because if she was really truly remorseful, she would quit the behaviour. I think Ashley definitely needs professional help as well and hope she's getting it. Chris seems like an awesome dad and Jacqueline a good mom...I don't think it's about parenting at all. Best of luck to them, it's obvious that they are trying.
Ashley you're only 18 or 19 years old so you should’ve stayed in a teenager’s place, why because those women are old enough to be your mother. Your mother Jacqueline is not old nor is she sickly and she's bigger than Danielle. As long as your mother wasn’t getting beat up or was badly hurt then you should’ve let your mom handle that situation herself. All I know is had you pulled my hair out I would've punched you right in your face and still pressed charges since you started it by pulling out my hair in the first place. Next time you need to learn how to stay out of adult affairs.
Please watch the footage closely! You are incredibly immature for an 18 year old. Your response to your parents when they see you doing something stupid is embarrassing. You are rufe and disrespectful to the very people that take care of you and try to keep you out of trouble. That whole "I can do what I want" while picking your nails is awful! You are lucky to live in such a nice home with good people around you. Grow up!! I know 10 year olds that have better manners than you.
Ashley, you are an 18 year old girl acting like an 18 year old girl! I would have done the same thing. Don't listen to the weirdos on your blog that have nothing else better to do! You are acting your age, it is Danielle who is 50 something acting like an 18 year old that is disturbing!
Ashley, You may be 18 but you are very immature. I think you should listen to your parents BUT don't follow your mother or Teresa's example. They are guilty of bullying, bad behavior and this is not how you want to be or be viewed. They should be ashamed of yourself and so should you. You owe Danielle a SINCERE apology. Nothing she said or did would justify physically hurting her in any way. I do not wish anything bad for you but you need to experience some consequences of your behavior and so should your Mom and Teresa. Learn from this:)
Ashley-You can't see it, but take it from me, you are only 18, and an immature one at that. You have a lot and you sre spoiled. Someday you will understand your parents' frustrations with your attitude. I don't expect young people to be good all of the time, but it seems you are bent on bringing embarrassment to your family under the guise of protecting them. The way this is going, you probably will not stop until there are some serious consequences. You just don't get it and there aren't many role models on the show to help you! At least your parents try to exercise good sense and restraint. You should try listen to them.
Ashley!! I looooove you!! God Bless your beautiful self! last night's episode was amazing!! ;D love and light forever!
