Eps asked, ‘Where is Ashley’s mom?’ so I thought I’d just give a quick primer to those of you who aren’t familiar with Ashley’s lineage.
Fred had an affair with a worker in his shop, Kathleen Gutteridge, who became pregnant with Ashley. She ended up leaving Ashley with Fred and has since been estranged from Ashley.
Fred’s sister Beryl (I freakin’ LOVE that name) and her husband Sam agreed to raise Ashley as their own. Ashley originally came to work with Fred as his nephew and through a series of events Fred had to let Ashley know the truth.
So bio-mom is awol, but his mom/aunt…yeah…where the hell is she?
