My DVR boycotted this episode...I should have taken the hint, but On Demand is an enabler...
I blame the parents for enabling them and instilling this sense of narcissism and entitlement in each of them - even to this day as evidenced by Ashlee's mom telling her how everyone is jealous of her.
I was just coming here to post exactly this. No, mom, they're not being mean to her because they're jealous of her; in fact they're not being mean at all. They're just reacting to the fact that she seems to have come on this trip solely to be an asshole. Ashlee was delusional from the first second of her intro at the top of the show: "Joey is persecuting me"??? Holy hell, this chick doesn't have a clue. She was the instigator of the entire situation, she was the one trying to force people to choose sides and she was the one who started the scene at the vineyard (excuse me, the "wine vineyard"). Should Joey maybe think twice before making her sarcastic comments? Sure. But all of this drama was manufactured by Ashlee and no one else. Chanel completely lost me when she defended Ashlee. "But she's my best friend." Hey Chanel, when your best friend is making an ass of herself, you need to tell her that. That's what friends do.
When Ashlee was so afraid of heights that she couldn't walk down the stairs, but refused to take her shoes off to help her balance, I so wanted to be there so I could "help" her down the stairs.
It will all be revealed next week after we find out that Ashlee wandered out into traffic after being put into a fugue state by Joey being mean to her. Or she wandered into traffic because her mascara blinded her when it ran all over her face and into her eyes.
I'm only a little embarrassed to say that I was hoping for this when they couldn't find her.
The LIRR goes to Southold (which I think is where the winery was) so Ashlee could have easily taken the train home but that's not as made-for-TV dramatic as calling mommy and daddy and asking for a jet.
Easily? No, Daddee would have had to send her a hazmat suit for her to go anywhere near the train.
In anyone who's not Ashlee news, Amanda's sister is a moron. Amanda seems not to be, but when the two of them are having a conversation on my TV, my ears bleed. Vocal fry is not adorable, ladies.
