@FoxyBride14:  I’m glad I’m not the only one that watches this!  I couldn’t believe her either!  I have a feeling (from the previews for next week) that something else might be going on.  They showed that she was in the hospital?!  Seriously though, a 30 year old should not be acting like that.

@FoxyBride14:  OMG a stroke?!  Yikes.  

Yeah, the blame game is getting old.  Living at home at 30 is one thing, but being totally dependent on your parents??  Granted I don’t know much about her, but she just comes off as being so helpless.  Did you see the one where she was going to make frozen veggies and she had to have her dad help her because it wasn’t the normal “steam pack” that she knows how to make?  The cooking directions were right on the back of the pack!  I really do want to like her, but I just can’t get past things like that!

@FoxyBride14:  Oh my gosh yes!  I could not believe that!!  That was way over the top!  I couldn’t even think about doing something like that!  Poor guy, I can’t believe he actually did it!

I don’t think you guys should be judging someone solely based on what you see on a TV show! I agree she may be a little dependent, but shes only a product of her upbringing. 

 

In terms of JUST the show, I totally see her point.. especially if you listened to Chanel say that she feels like Joey is trying to turn everyone against her.. WHETHER THATS TRUE OR NOT, if thats how she FEELS, imagine what that would do to you. I definitely agree they are ALL too old to be making such a fuss over a fight. If you dont like someone, be cordial (dont just say you will), and suck it up if you have to be around one another. I do, however, feel that she should have NEVER said what she did to Joey about her mom.. but, I also think Joey never should have made the “funny looking” comment, since Ashlee really seems to feel insecure because of her height. =/

I’ve loved the show up until now, but this fight just made me really sad for these girls!

@FoxyBride14:  Thank you for this thread! I started a thread related to this show a couple weeks ago, but it got lost somewhere. YES, I watch this show. It’s my weekly guilty pleasure especially since I’m bored by the Real Housewives – that franchise has seen its day. I don’t like Ashlee either, but I actually feel sorry for all those girls. Can you imagine being raised to not be self-sufficient b/c a nice boy should come along and “rescue you?” What a horrible way to live. No wonder they are horrified by making it out on their own. Joey couldn’t get a decent apartment in Long Island, Ashlee has major issues, Amanda doesn’t realize (or want to realize) that her boyfriend is gay, Chanel can’t get a decent date, and Erica needs to lay off the cigarettes/dead-end relationships. The only “normal” one is Casey, and I actually have to wonder why she is even on the show as she doesn’t really “add” much to it in terms of drama.

That being said, I can’t wait for the finale next week!

@Excited To Bee:  I missed parts of a couple of episodes, hence I don’t know Joey’s relationship with her mom. Why was that a truly nasty thing for Ashlee to say?

@MrsNewDay:  I havent heard much either, and I have watched every episode. I am just assuming its rocky since you NEVER hear about her or see her, and she has the “hardest” life of all. By hardest I mean, has to work just like the rest of us. I always think its a low blow though to say “your parents were right about you.” Its already hard enough to worry about our parents being proud of us. 

 

 

@FoxyBride14:  Why did the fight even start? I remember two things, the scene where they are at the party and Ashlee is talking to some guy and flirting (but brings up her parents) and Joey goes off making Ashlee feel (im assuming) like an idiot, about how she shouldnt be bringing stuff like that up. I understand that Joey might have been trying to be helpful, but its a bit rude to do that in FRONT of someone.. so embarassing. THEN I remember her asking totally inappropriate questions at the Jewish singles dating thing they went to, which I think was the icing on the cake for Ashlee, who doesnt see that type of talk as being appropriate. I wouldve been mortified too, its one thing to talk about it around friends you’re comfortable with.. but to have someone who (as Ashlee feels “represents her as a friend”) go and do something like that in public.. its a little less than classy. I mean.. who goes to speed dating and asks how big the guys dick is?

@FoxyBride14:  You’re definitely right, but it was after the party where she felt embarassed/hurt by Joey calling her out in front of a guy. Regardless, I dont think either of them should be acting this way. 

 

To change the subject, though, werent those rings Amanda tried on last episode AMAZING? They were massive.. and gorgeous! I love my simple solitaire, but I got a little jealous seeing those beauties.

@Excited To Bee:  I agree, I guess we shouldn’t have been judging her, but with the way she’s portrayed on the show it’s sometimes difficult.  I guess that’s why she’s branded the “Daddy’s Girl” of the group!

 

I agree about the rings, they were gorgeous!  I’m wondering what happens next week with them – I feel like a proposal might be coming with the way the preview looks!  I thought he was going to get down on his knee in the middle of that dinner in the last episode with the way he was talking!

@JerseyGirl85: Me too! I was like ooooh nooo! My heart even started beating fast for her! Her poor mom is NOT ready to let go though, and I think its a bit silly.. its not like shes a child and they REALLY do seem perfect for eachother (at least as far as I can tell). 

 

I cant wait for next week! They better not leave us in suspense and end it with him pulling out the box! Ill be so cranky! 🙂
