    Good interview! She looks gorgeous! I wasn't so sure about the blond hair last year but she's even more blond this year and it looks lovely on her. Ashley really makes me want to go buy some skinny jeans ASAP! She was dressed so casually but she looked awesome! Love the shoes

    A lot of the time skaters are a bit in interviews; kinda awkward and every other word is "um" or "like"...but Ashley seemed really relaxed and calm. I love what she said about Michelle! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Ashley. It's taken her a while to really make her mark but as long as she keeps up her drive and determination she's going to be successful.

    I'm cheering for her.

    She skated in a critique session last Sunday in California. Great speed and transitions. A very powerful performance.

    What a delightful interview. She's quite charming, and I loved her humor about doing ab work in heels.

    Go, Ashley!

    Ashley's blonde hair reminds me of what Jenny Kirk looked like when she went blonde.

    Ashley looks and sounds great. Very natural interview. And the hair looks really natural as well. She certainly seems relaxed in the spolight. I think that's a good thing. I wish her luck at Skate America.

    She has matured so much in the past two years. I think this will be her best season yet!

    Jesus, enough with the "almost" thing already. We get it. USFSA's media people sure love to latch onto ONE thing don't they?

    US Ladies Champion. She fits the mold for "central casting" nicely.
