Ashley said she was remorseful for the comments she made about Kathryn's mothering and how often she sees her kids, among other personal hits she delivered last season.
"I think she said she was sorry," Kathryn said of the apology on Southern Charm After Show, adding that Ashley's words "go in one ear and out the other."
"She went into her own problems and her own life," Kathryn said. "I don’t know how you can go from one polar opposite end of the spectrum to this one, I don’t buy it."
Was Ashley right to even attempt to apologize after all that had gone down?
"It’s never too late. If you are sincerely attempting to make a genuine effort, do it," national etiquette expert Diane Gottsman told Personal Space. "It’s much better to get along, as opposed to living in a constant state of angst and turmoil."
"However, the apology must be real," Gottsman added.
Steps to an apology:
"Verbalize it. Say the words, 'I apologize,' and mention what you are actually remorseful about," Gottsman said.
"Mention how you plan to rectify the situation.
"Be clear that you have no intention of bringing it up again.
"Move on. If you continue to argue about the same altercation over and over again, you will not move out of the past.
"Remove the word 'but' from the apology. Anything you said before of the word 'but' is negated once you start to make an excuse."
