On the August 14th episode of’ RHONJ’ the women battle with their daughters in different ways — bringing more drama to the Garden State.
And the troubled 20-year-old Ashley Holmes faces an intervention that leads her to being kicked out of her own home.
Jaqueline Laurita’s daughter’s father, Matt, flies in from Texas to participate in the intervention. Everyone is incredibly fed up with her late night partying and are concerned she is not headed in the right direction. But Ashley is clueless that the invention is even in the works until later in the episode when they all meet at a restaurant.
Of course, the intervention does go as planned.
Ashley ends up insulting her mom saying “sorry I don’t have a baby,” after Jaqueline comments how Ashley has little to no responsibility.
“She throws in my face all the sacrifices she’s made for me,” Ashley says about her mom. “I don’t think I should pay for them.” Ashley proceeds to admit that she feels like her mom is mean to her because she is resentful that she had her when she was 20.
Jaqueline storms out crying after telling Jaqueline she should leave the house. The angry mother says she has had enough — and her husband agrees!
Meanwhile, Kathy Wakile is dealing with having “the talk” with her 16-year-old daughter, Victoria, as she gets ready to go to her first high school dance. Kathy tells Victoria how boys these days have ulterior motives and that she needs to watch out. Victoria says she knows and good thing she’s a black belt — plus I don’t think any boys wil be messing with her knowing what a crazy dad she has!
Caroline Manzo also deal with issue mother/daughter issues this episode. Her daughter, Lauren, confides in Caroline saying she is unhappy with her weight and that she feels unattractive. A supportive Caroline tells her beauty comes from within, and that she’ll help her with whatever she needs to make her feel better. Caroline really is such a great mom!
With all of the crazy Jaqueline/Ashley drama, it was refreshing to see Caroline and Kathy’s positive relationships with their own daughters.
