Felicia Forrester (Ridge's half-sister) invited Ashley to Taylor Hayes' (one of Brooke's other enemies for breaking up her and Ridge) baby shower.

Ashley began dating Brooke's brother Storm Logan but dumped him once she found out he shot Ridge's mother Stephanie Forrester (who is Brooke's other enemy for breaking up her and Eric Forrester) which Ridge told her about. Ashley broke it off because she wanted to save her security and Katie Logan (Storm's sister) thinking Storm was going to shoot Ashley took the gun away from him and Katie got shot. Bridget (Brooke and Eric's daughter) told Storm that her aunt Katie would die without a heart transplant so he committed suicide so Katie could have his heart to save her life.
