The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Ashley Holmes Sports a New Look!

June 02, 2011 10:00 AM by Shayla Perry

For years, fans of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey have watched Jacqueline Laurita’s teen daughter, Ashley Holmes, and suggested that she make a few changes in her life. Well, Ashley’s taken that advice, but not in the way we had hoped. In a recent appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, Ashley revealed a new, very grown up look — sporting longer locks (read: hair extensions), tanned skin, and … Well, you’ll have to see for yourself after the jump!

When Real Housewives of New Jersey offspring Ashley Holmes made a guest appearance in the after show of Watch What Happens Live, viewers immediately noticed that Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter — who, as children of Housewives go, has played a large role in the series — was looking quite different than we’re used to seeing her on the Bravo reality show.

Holmes walked onto the small set, took a seat between her mother a co-star Teresa Giudice, and showed off her new ‘do — long, blonde locks. But of course, you can’t get anything past host/Bravo exec Andy Cohen — like the fact that Jacqueline didn’t want to foot the bill for her daughter to move to the city, but paid for her makeover! So, in the Watch What Happens Live spirit, check out this clip and see if you can spot the other big change in Ashley’s appearance before Andy does!

And that’s not all!

There’s something else that’s different about Ashley — her name!

No longer is it spelled, “Ashley;” it’s now “Ashlee.” So keep that in mind when commenting on her antics this season.

What do you think about Ashley — er, Ashlee Holmes’ new look? Weigh in in the Comments section below!

    Ashley or Ashlee seems like a spoiled brat – lives at home for free, has no job, is rude to her parents, and now she has had her hair done and lip injections. Oh, that poor child. Imagine if she had to put in a day’s work like the rest of the world.

    Lipstick on a pig. She can polish herself up all she wants, but she is still a selfish, spoiled brat still sucking off her parents at her age, with no future career in sight. She’ll be 45 and living in her parents basement. haha

    Grow Up and get a J.O.B.

    OMG! Ashley is a horrible child! I don’t even know where to start….and her parents in NJ are at fault for enabling this spoiled self centered brat! I’d bitch slap her if she rolled her eyes at me that way, I’d have her scrubbing floors for an allowance, I cannot stand that kid in the show, wish they’d get rid of her and I hope her parents wake the hell up! It’s called tough love for a reason…..she should move to Texas with her dad who seems to have a clue, but she’d wear him out too. Can you spell BRAT!

    Ashlee or Ashley is a young girl, and she may be a bit flaky and lacking in goals and directions, but from what I’ve seen of the show, all the ‘grown-ups’ just relentlessly pick on her and talk her down. Her parents should be showing her the way, and just not leaving it all to her – she’s young and inexperienced after all.

    They moan and complain she doesn’t do what they want. They need to take the lead, and take an interest in courses she might do and research ideas for her and help her see it through to completion. Sometimes this is what a parent needs to do to get their child on the right track. They have to make that much effort themselves. They need to be very proactive in helping her find a job. They need to direct her to the sites online, the newspapers, and the agencies and make her fill out applications and supervise the whole process. They need to be showing her the way.

    Good advice, Anna. Ashlee needs goals and good direction. Yes, her extensions are stringy and dull looking, but probably because she hasn’t learned to care for them, yet. BTW, did anyone understand what Andy said: “Many say I have ???”

    I think her name should be Trashlee. I mean, her hair looks AWFUL and makes her look like a cadaver. Her mom can complain all she wants about how irresponsible and immature her daughter is, but she has no one to blame but herself for failing to be a responsible parent who can set and enforce boundaries.

    Sometimes, I weep for humanity.

    She wants to be Lindsay Lohan. It is so obvious the way she dresses, the way she acts. Ashley (or Ashlee!) is an ungrateful brat. Who needs to have her mouth smacked by Jacqueline. But the way Jacqueline acted when she met Kathy’s daughter, and how different kathy’s daughter from Ashlee, for some reason she didn’t look like she was envious (which she should!) she seems like she is amused how different she is from Ashlee. She kind of made a joke in the interview how she cannot imagine Ashlee saying “I will do my assignment” to that effect. For some reason she likes more of a buddy-buddy relationship from Ashlee. She wants to be the cool mom and because of that Ashlee doesn’t respect her because she put up with Ashlee’s BS. But still Ashlee is one ungrateful child. What a waste, because there are a lot of good children out there (orphans) or some who have abusive parents and deserve more than this Ashlee is getting.

    It is Jacqueline and Chris’s fault that Ashley, or Ashlee or Lazy Useless Girl or whatever she wants to be called, is the way she is. You don’t complain that someone has no direction and then let them live in your house, buy them a car, and let them screw off and do whatever they want. Kick her butt out of the house – do not pay for ANYTHING – no phone, no car, nothing. Then maybe she will learn that people actually have to (gasp) WORK to get stuff. Why would they pay for plastic surgery for her? And does she think changing the spelling of her name will help her nonexistent career? No Ashley, you actually might have to WORK, not just get lip injections. Jacq and Chris need counseling on how not to enable your child to be a useless drain on society.

    Ashlee needs to get away from this show and her mom who acts more of a trouble maker and child than she does.

    Caroline’s children are all bums and don’t have jobs and that is ok why not Ashlee? Besides she is prettier than Lauren and everyone on the show. Lauren walks off her job cause she got no respect??? That is a good one!!!!

    I hope Ashlee gets her own life away from these lame troublemakers. By the way where does Jacqueline’s husband work since his business went bankrupt? Bravo? Seems they all work on the reality show now as Bravo foots the bills.

    BRAT, always was always will be. Last nights show left me sayin “what” now shes all grown up living in CA and has a job as an artist? Hellerrr? She never even went to school for this and now shes on her own? I highly doubt that bullshit. People with college degrees in art cant get jobs, never mind untalented brats from NJ. PS her tattoos make her look even more like a spoiled brat, nothing professional there. Im sure she will be back home soon hanging on the strings of her mothers apron.
