At its iconic Tiger Cruise to see:
She did well at the time, and I seriously mean it!!
But for some, Ashley is now that person who made her husband buy £400 to fill a shelf for one of those (already fake/staged) celebrity shoots.
Sooo, Ashley toured her home for Architectural Digest and her bookshelf sparked a huge debate about buying books as decor.
It all started with this tweet:
And then all hell fell apart.
This is the library in question, or “public enemy #1” for some:
In the clip, Ashley says, “These shelves, I have to be honest, didn’t have books on them a few days ago.”
“I asked my husband to go to a bookstore and I said, ‘You have to buy 400 books.'”
“Obviously my husband was like ‘we should be collecting books over time and putting them on the shelves. “And I was like ‘no, no, no NOT when AD come.'”
This made netizens very angry…
…for, uh, Ashley is buying books.
This person asked why Ashley didn’t fill the shelves slowly over time.
This person said they don’t trust people who don’t stock their shelves.
Basically, the thread was a confusing mess…
Buuuut then the opinion changed and people were like, “What the fuck is going on, why are people mad at Ashley Tisdale for buying books?”
And like the WHO? Weeklyodcast said, hey, at least she was honest.
But really, I think the overwhelming opinion is hey, good for her to support bookstores and authors.
The thread got so wild that Ashley replied to the tweet:
So yes, that’s enough internet for the day.
Maybe this stuff was a bad idea.
