New Jersey is all about family, so it’s not so surprising that the Real Housewives of New Jersey like to keep it all in the family. RHONJ stars Lauren Manzo and Ashlee Holmes are both adults who still live at home with their parents despite Lauren being married, and Ashlee being engaged and pregnant.
After coming under fire for their lack of adultness and still living off their parents, Lauren and Ashlee both took to Twitter to sound off on “idiots” having a problem with them still living at home.
Ashlee tweeted, “Kim Kardashian is in her 30s, currently on the cover of Forbes, married to Kanye West and has two kids…and SHE even needed to save money.” (First off you’re no Kim K, Ashlee, but Kim was building a multi-million dollar house, so I doubt she was worried about saving money!)
Alluding that the reason she is living home is to save money. Got it – no biggie.
Her cousin, Lauren then chimed in saying, “@ashleeholmes u should hear the shit they say to me for living home. Don’t let them bother you. Fuck them lol.”
Ashlee then shot back saying, “lol right? Yeah, it doesn’t bother me. I was just making a point to them. Idiots.”
Personally, I don’t have a problem with either Lauren or Ashlee living at home still especially in this economy. However, it is odd that they’ve taken next huge steps in their lives and continue to live at home, getting married and having babies are both expensive endeavors, to say the least. Everyone has their opinions, but what Lauren and Ashlee are doing isn’t all that weird in Jersey at least – a lot of people do it.
I do think they both are being brats about people critiquing them and if they didn’t care, as they claim, they wouldn’t feel the need to defend it or talk about it.
