It’s been a hell of a season, but it ended with a sad little whimper. If you missed Sunday night’s episode, save your Tivo space for the reunion. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.
The episode basically centeres around family - the Gorga/Giudices finally came together for a family photo, Kathy and Richie see their daughter Victoria off to the prom, Caroline finishes up her radio show, and Jacqueline once again tries to knock some sense into Ashley.
Speaking of Ashley, apparently the daughter of the year got a few tattoos - including one of a swallow - while the gang was partying it up in Punta Cana. She shows them off to her uncle Jamie, another “black sheep” of the family whom Jacqueline invites over to try to relate to Ashley.
Jamie’s advice? To tell people her tat is of a sparrow, not a swallow, or guys will get the wrong idea about her.
He also asks Ashley if she’s ever worked hard in her life, to which she replies, “Not to the fullest, no.” And yet this girl still thinks she can run off to California with no job and no drive and magically have the life she always dreamed of.
So has Ashley changed at all this season? Absolutely not - unless you count legally changing her name to “Ashlee.” Does that count as progress?
