Ashely Waring fills us in on her mom's wedding preparations.
So, while your mother is trying to sell the townhouse, what are your thoughts on that?
Well, last season, when my mom was talking about selling it, I was kind of apprehensive about it, just because... where was I going to live? What am I going to do? Now, it doesn't bother me as much because I'm off on my own more. It's easier to get a new place by myself. I'm working a lot and getting my real estate license... just trying to get everything together.
Are you looking for a new place?
I am, actually.
Did you get your real estate license?
As of October 1st, a new law passed, so I have to take a few more open book tests before the main test, but I'm sure I'll have it in January.
Do you spend a lot of time at the house?
I used to spend a lot of time at the house. It was fun to be with everybody, but I haven't really had a lot of time to go over there since the wedding. But, Mackenzie and I are still really close. We hang out a lot and have fun. She comes up to my house, now instead of my going over there.
Is your relationship really different with Mackenzie than it is with Sophie?
Sophie is one of my favorite people in the whole world. It's just different. I have eight or nine siblings now, and I have a different relationship with each of them. Because of the age range. I have a sister that's four, and I have them all the way up to eighteen. It's totally different with each one.
How was South Beach?
South Beach was so much fun. I definitely want to go back. I might be going back in January. It was just fun to let loose and get away with all the other girls and just have a mini-vacation. It was good.
What did you think when your mom said, "she'd think about it", when you asked to be her maid of honor?
I had been thinking about that since she and George started dating, because I figured they would get married. So I thought: now is the time to say something to her, because I wanted to be the maid of honor. I know she was hesitant at first, because of her sister — she didn't want to hurt her feelings. It was only fair for me to do it, though. It's her third marriage, and I'm here with her all the time. And we're close. We're basically best friends, so... I think it was right to ask.
Is it weird being with your mom, getting ready for another wedding?
It was a little weird, going with my mom to try on wedding dresses. I was too young to be at the other weddings, so I never saw anything. But a lot of my friends are getting married now, so it's just different. I'm getting to that age when... well, it just gave me an idea of what to expect.
Did you know who Austin Scarlett was?
I don't watch a lot of television, but I had seen him once. As soon as I saw him and said, "Saks Beverly Hills," I knew who he was.
How was that experience?
He was so fun. I definitely want him to design my wedding dress. He was so sweet to all of us, and he definitely has a great fashion sense. His dresses are amazing.
What else is going on?
Right now, just getting ready for Christmas and looking forward to spending it with my family. I'm going to be traveling a lot. I don't think I'll be home for one weekend in January, so that will be fun. Finishing my real estate license, which is almost done. I have eight hour classes every Saturday and Sunday. That's been rough, but I'm almost done.
Does George help you with your homework?
No, no. Not at all.
Are you excited about Quinn, the new housewife?
I met her once, and she seemed very nice. I remember her saying something about some young guy.
You went to South Beach with Megan and Lindsey. Do you still talk to them?
Well, I work with Lindsey still at the OC Energy Drink, a few times a week. Megan will still talk once in a while, via e-mail. I try to keep in touch with everyone as much as I can. I told Megan I wanted to hang out this week, so we probably will.
You're still working on the OC Energy Drink?
Yeah, just to keep that going. It's a fun job, and I get to work with some of my best friends, so... you can't beat that.
Any boys in the picture?
Not any specific boy. I'm dating a lot and having fun. I do want a boyfriend, but I'm not in any rush. After I get my real estate license. I'll have weekends free. I hope everyone's enjoying season three!
