My view, on Ashley pulling the hair, is that she was standing in the crowd, saw Danielle getting the attention and she wanted some of it. She wasn't "defending" her mom. Sure, it sounds better to say that and Caroline can keep on saying it but IMO that's not the truth. Ashley has NEVER come off as truly caring about her mom (or stepdad). She's a total bore with no drive or personality! It's really sad to see ANOTHER one of these loser kids on these shows. Why are so many of the "Housewife Kids" not going to college and not trying to make something REAL out of their lives? The only good kids, on any of the shows, seem to be Jeana's and Vickie's daughters! Laurie's kids, AWFUL. Tammy's (remember her pit bull daughter and the one with all the make up) AWFUL. ETC,ETC seems to be par for the course. They're all looking for a magical shortcut to fame and success (moms and the kids). I have a 19 year old daughter and THE rule is: You go to college(or some kind of school) or you don't live here! Jackie and her husband were soooooooo worried about Ashley's curfew but how about making a rule that , for her to move back in, she had to get a job (why not the Brownstone) AND sign up for school!!!!! Just a thought! The ONLY intelligent thing that I've EVER heard Ashley say was that she knows that she ,really, isn't model material! I'm sooo glad that she can actually see that (maybe she isn't so dumb). On the other hand......... Danielle's daughter is so BEAUTIFUL! She reminds me of a very young Mariel Hemingway (only much prettier). Even with the beauty I would still tell that girl that she NEEDS, NEEDS, NEEDS to get an education. Why is this something that (most) of these wives seems to fail at?
