Controversies that took over the BDSY 3 show before the Reunion?

Ashley Marti BDSY 3

Missing out on a reunion is a cardinal sin in the words of Bravo, yet Ashey Marti decided to abstain from showing up at the reunion. In the recent season, the stewardess ended up gathering much criticism from the fans of BDSY, mainly for two reasons-

  • Ashley Marti wanted to get into a committed relationship with Gary. Gary too found her attractive but in no way was willing to make any serious commitment at the moment. 

During a night off, when Gary King was quite heavily drunk, she despite his resentment took him to one of the guest’s room and hooked up. Gary was completely ignorant of the incident when he woke up the next morning. This behavior of Ashley outraged many viewers who took this incident as Gary’s sexual assault.

  • Ashley Marti did not appreciate when Gary flirted with other lady crew members i.e. Daisy and Gabriella.  When Chief Stew Daisy Kelliher chose Gabriella Barragan over Ashley, she behaved very rudely. As she thought, Gabreilla to be unworthy of the position. The viewers did not appreciate such arrogant behavior of Ashley.

Ashley has been one of the most controversial stewards who ever appeared in the BDSY show. Speculations were quite high that Ashley is embarrassed due to her harsh behavior with Gabriella and forced hookup with Gary. But she made no such remarks officially.

Ashley Marti took to her Instagram handle on June 26th to announce her decision of renouncing her appearance at the Reunion. She explained that at the time the Reunion was filmed, she lacked the right energy or the willingness to continue being a plaything for Bravo. Further, she felt that she would not be able to adequately tell her story due to Bravo’s editing.

She also feared that she wouldn’t be able to tell her side of the story to the audience while people were being so mean to her. She also accused Bravo of being mean while editing and claiming that he could tamper with her statements to portray her incorrectly.

She also charged Bravo for inadequate pay and that she makes more money from her paid subscriptions than shooting for BDSY 3.

She also expressed gratitude to her fans for restoring their faith in her and standing by her during difficult times. She also promised to go live later and answer all of her fans’ questions.

She also apologized to her fans who were looking forward to her presence at the Reunion and asked them to respect her decision.
