It’s not surprising to hear about mothers and daughters who share a tight-knit bond. But on sMothered season 4, the cast took the “mother-daughter” relationship to a whole another level — sharing bathwater and even the guys they date. Yes! And it was no other than Ashley Hefner who dated the same guys (twice) as her mother.
Let’s get to know her better as this article proceeds.
Ashley Hefner On TLC’s sMothered
sMothered season 4 cast, Ashley Hefner was unusually close to her mother, Cathy. The two even bought their house next to each other in a subdivision in Jonesborough and fenced their yards in together so it’s “one big yard.”
And it wasn’t just Ashley’s mother who lived next to her. Ashley’s aunt and grandmother also lived in the same neighborhood.
However, the mother-daughter wasn’t always this close. The two only took their relationship to next level after Ashley graduated from college and became a young mother herself. Since then, the duo has shared dates, and also have had matching nipple piercings and tattoos together.
According to Ashley, their first body-modification experience was Cathy’s idea. But though they both decided to get floral tattoos, Cathy’s ended up looking like a v*gina, which they laugh about to this day.
So, how did they join sMothered? Well, while in Tampa Florida, Ashley’s family co-incidentally met a producer whose friend was a producer for sMothered. Then, “one thing let to another” and the producers asked them to send them their bios telling them a “little bit about (themselves) and (their) closeness.”
“This all transpired down in Florida, then they found out we were moving as a pack to Jonesborough and they just thought that was awesome,” Cathy recalled.
This means that the duo didn’t actually start filming for the show until they were in Jonesborough.
Joining Ashley and Cathy for the fourth installment of sMothered were their co-stars, Cher and Dawn, Cristina and Kathy, Angelica and Sunhe, Paula and Francia, Shay and Angie, and Lauren and Lisa.

To recall in detail, Ashley was on a dating site and her mother decided to get on it a few years later. So, one day, Cathy boasted to he daughter about one of the gentlemen she went out with. “I was telling Ashley all about the date and she was like, ‘That’s familiar! It sounds like one I went on.’ She asked me his name and I told her. She then asked what his number was and I told her and she went ‘Mom! I used to go out with him several years ago!’ I had no clue,” Cathy explained.
So, now, they check with each other before any dates.
Also, another problem Ashley has had with dating was her boyfriend falling in love with her mother. Yes! “Every single guy I have ever dated or brought home, they either fear my mother or fall in love with her. So that’s been an issue,” Ashley shared.
