ON THE 'PRINCESSES: LONG ISLAND' FINALE Chanel Omari says the missing Ashlee White had a health scare the year before, later revealed as a stroke in which, Ashlee tells the others, she'd been bedridden eight months. Joey Lauren, Amanda Bertoncini and Erica Gimbel go boating with Erica's dad, Roger. Erica's boyfriend Rob tells Roger he hopes he and Erica can "move forward." The women learn Ashlee is in the hospital, having hitchhiked there, she claims, after having had a panic attack. At Sip City in Great Neck, Casey Cohen confronts Amanda over Ashlee. Chanel visits Ashlee and suggests they all attend a Tashlikh casting-off-of-sins ceremony, which she considers a forgiveness ceremony. Amanda's boyfriend Jeff Hoffman gives her a "promise ring." The women have a Tashlikh at a pond, where Ashlee says how proud she is of herself. The women argue but ultimately hug.
