Ashley Perrin was involved in what’s safe to call the most-talked-about-ever episode of “Trading Spouses.” On the show, two families switch moms for a week and agree to go along with the new mom’s rules. For maximum drama, the families are almost always polar opposites. Ashley’s family, conservative Christians, traded their mother Marguerite (who referred to herself as a “God Warrior”) with a woman from a New Age “hippie” family. The episode probably went past the producers’ wildest dreams when Marguerite had a freak-out and began screaming in front of the cameras. When reunited with her family at the end of the episode, her eldest daughter Ashley cried to see her mother’s behavior.
In her brief amount of screen time, Ashley came across as a kind and warm-hearted young woman. Even though she was alarmed by her mother’s outburst, she seemed concerned rather than embarrassed. At the end of each episode, each mom is given $50,000 to give to the other family, allocated any way they want. Ashley was given $15,000, partly to give her enough financial security to move out on her own.
Ashley was driving a minivan when she apparently ran off the road, reports Reality Blurred. She was driving along Interstate 55 in her home state, Louisiana. Ashley was 25 years old. Her family has not yet released information about funeral services.
