During the season finale of Princesses: Long Island, Ashlee White revealed that she had suffered a stroke the previous year, but the show didn't seem to convey the seriousness of her ailments. Because that tiny bit of information was just casually slapped onto the last 10 minutes of the finale, it was pretty difficult to take Ashlee seriously. In fact, it almost seemed like it was a ploy for Ashlee to get some sympathy from the other women and the audience.
Well, guess what? It was definitely not a ploy. Last week, Ashlee reportedly suffered her third stroke in only two years and is currently in recovery mode. According to a tweet from Casey Cohen last Tuesday, the same day she was hospitalized, Ashlee was already "in recovery, alert & re-learning to walk." Wow.
I can't even imagine what the White family must be going through. The repercussions of three strokes are too much for any family to experience.
The good news is that it seems as if the other princesses have let go of any feuds they may have had with Ashlee and are rallying up behind her to help her get through this difficult time. The finale was pretty explosive, and we were left with a group of girls that were ripping at the seams, but it looks like this incident has brought them all together. Chanel had kind words to say about the whole incident:
Friendships aren't perfect, so despite any issues in the past year, my main priority is for her to get well and happy and be the best person she can be.
Even Joey, who was ready to end her friendship with Ashlee forever by the end of the season, admitted that it's "important to let go of the issues at a time like this." She better believe it's time to put all cat-fights aside. When a friend, whether she's a good one or not, is suffering, all arguments should be put to rest. At the end of the day, Ashlee's health is more important than any feud.
Do you think that Ashlee's stroke will mend the problems that Joey and Ashlee have with each other?
