The reality TV personality responded to the claims via a short video posted to her Instagram Story on Monday night, just about a day after a new episode of RHOP aired on Bravo.

Is It The Housewives’ Standard Beef Or A Loaded Message?

Ashley’s video is in response to the backlash that came after Season 7, Episode 6 of RHOP aired.
