The ongoing family feud on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey" — well, one of the ongoing family feuds — took a turn for the worse on Sunday night’s episode when the always contrary Ashley Holmes finally pushed her folks too far.
Frustrated mom Jacqueline Laurita and husband Chris felt they couldn’t handle anymore of the partying, the bad attitude and the teen-like drama from the 20-year-old, so they decided it was time to do something about it.
“Maybe tough love is what she needs,” Jacqueline said as she considered kicking her daughter out of the family home before Ashley's planned trip to California.
But with one unhappy wife, Chris decided the time for thinking about tough love was over. It was time to act.
“Call one of your friends to get you and get out,” the stepfather demanded. “You’ve got it all figured out? Go!”
What do you think? Will Ashley learn a lesson from that belated dose of tough love? Share your thoughts on our Facebook page!
