Ashley has just told Shane and JoJo she will not be working for Janelle anymore.
Ashley came into the bathroom crying, saying she missed Kara. Shane, JoJo, Danielle, and Jenn were there. Ashley was starting to break, and told them about how Joe and Wil don't respect her, how Janelle favors them, etc etc etc. She started saying thing about how she doesn't like her team, how she wishes she could be with the bathroom folks, and the usual she doesn't know what to do. Shane planted the seeds of Ashley, Jenn, himself and whomever survives the eviction teaming up as a foursome.
And then Jenn went and told Janelle (who was really drunk), Frank, Wil and Joe.......and they were pissed. Especially Janelle. Eventually, Ashley and Frank ended up in the HOH to discuss what happened in the bathroom. Ditzy Ashley made an appearance and played dumb while providing just enough information to satisfy Frank. Frank swore on his Nana (and kissed her pic to prove his sincerity) that he and Ian never had a final 2 alliance (which Ian also confirmed).
In walks Janelle. Wil soon follows. Both of them confront Ashley on the sofa and block her from getting up off the couch. Both act very aggressively towards Ashley, and she is forced to back up deeper and deeper into the couch just to have some space. She tells them she feels like they are attacking her, ganging up on her, and they nevertheless keep it up. Frank, in the meantime, tries to calm down Janelle and Wil by telling them Ashley is just fine, that they talked about what happened, and it's nothing to be so upset about. Ashley kept saying over and over again how this was getting blown way out of proportion (with Frank agreeing) and that it's all just a misunderstanding. It took some convincing, but finally Janelle and Wil backed off Ashley.
Ashley then tells them all she doesn't know who to talk to, when it's okay, when it's not, and how she keeps getting in trouble.
Eventually Ashley makes her way back to Shane and JoJo, who are in the Have-Not room with Britney. She has a great heart-to-heart with them, Britney offers great advice about playing her own game (the coaches need you guys more than you need us, implying that by Ashley playing her own game, it will ultimately benefit Janelle, even if Ashley goes her own way and goes against Joe and Wil), and after Britney leaves, Ashley makes her decision to tell Shane and JoJo she will no longer be working Janelle. She doesn't believe Janelle has her best interests at heart. She believes Janelle is favoring Wil and Joe and forcing her to go along with everything, even if it's to the detriment of her own game.
And Janelle proved she's doing exactly that by complaining bitterly to Frank and Wil about Ashley "going against us."
When Ashley announced she's no longer working for Janelle, a wonderful look of happiness graced her face as the bundle of nerves she's been carrying all week dissipated. You could see she was finally at peace.
