Ashley says she never meant to hurt anyone when she digitally took hundreds of photos of April and Nathan’s twin daughters and reposted them as if they were her own daughters on social media.
“I really don’t mean you guys any harm. I really don’t,” Ashley says on Thursday’s Dr. Phil, finally admitting what she had done, after being confronted by April and Nathan, who say Ashley had been “cyber hijacking” photos of their 4-year-old girls over the years.
Yet April says Ashley’s actions have left her and her family feeling extremely vulnerable.

“You have completely stolen … I don’t even know how to explain… we are completely violated,” April tells Ashley. “You have followed our lives the whole entire time … it scares us … we’re scared to death … you have changed the way that we live.”
“I apologize for how I made you guys feel, I really do,” Ashley says.
