Real Housewives of New Jersey's Ashley Holmes: Why Animals Eat Their Young

Ashley Holmes, The Real Housewives of New Jersey BRAVO

Let the door hit you on the ass, Ashley.

That's what we wish The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Jacqueline Laurita would tell her spoiled spawn when she threatens to move to California.

But how do the bourgeois brat's pushover parents really respond to the freeloader's exit strategy on Sunday's episode?

At first, Jacqueline and hubby Chris seem supportive of the 20-year-old's plans, even though she (of course) expects them to fund her move and pay for her "own house."

And why not? Chris has already bought his stepdaughter a couple SUVs. (To Ashley's credit, she didn't use them to run down a nightclub crowd like Lizzie Grubman, her boss for the few days she managed to "work.")

When the discussion turns practical, Ashley turns on her signature charm. "Why are you talking to me like I'm a retard?" she whines to her mom. "You're such a bitch," she adds while smirking down at her iPhone.

Will Jacqueline really have the guts to kick this monstrous beanie baby out of her house? Or will she continue to do Ashley's laundry, clean her room, pay her allowance and tolerate her boorish behavior and hideous headgear?

Alas, we can't speak for Jacqueline—but we know what California has to say about Ashley Holmes.

New Jersey can keep her.

What do you think of Ashley? Is a misunderstood artist hiding beneath her fedoras and knit berets—or is she just an asshat?
