Ashley Greene burned her condo down because of a “candle” a little over a year ago, and we’re only now getting details on what happened. However, really the only details we care about are the fact that apparently there was a crack pipe found in the apartment by investigators after the fire was put out. Ohhhh snap.
The manager, Adrian Mayorga, is also suing, claiming he suffered permanent respiratory damage. According to his sworn deposition — obtained by TMZ — Mayorga says one of the men who cleared out the unit after the fire told him he found a glass crack pipe.
Mayorga said, he was the first person in the hallway after the blaze broke out and says he saw Ashley and the others “disoriented … they looked like they were drunk or under the influence of something.”
Mayorga also says in the depo … “The only people I saw getting treated was Ashley Greene, her brother Joe Green, and her — the current boyfriend, Ryan Phillippe.”
However, a “source” has refuted the crack pipe claims, as you would expect.
A source close to Greene bashed the manager’s statement, telling Us, “There was no crack pipe found in Ashley’s apartment. It’s all hearsay from unnamed sources — Mayorga’s claiming he heard from a friend of an unidentified worker who may have entered the apartment. Additionally, Phillippe went on the record saying he wasn’t there.”
Sorry, I can kinda believe it. Although “crack is whack” and rich people usually prefer the more refined drugs, like cocaine (yes, that’s sarcasm), it probably happened.
I think the most shocking thing here is that Ashley Greene is dating Ryan Phillippe. Why didn’t I know that?!

Ashley Greene‘s condo burned down yesterday. Though she, her brother, her boyfriend, and one of her dogs made it out safely, her other dog died.
:( I don’t ever use emoticons but I don’t even know how to express my sadness for her in words. Also sad is that the fire sent three people to the hospital. No word on their exact condition yet, but they are believed to be doing okay.
Oh God, and here’s the worst part: this all started because of a candle in the living room. A simple candle that accidentally somehow fell on the couch and grew into an uncontrollable fire. I often light candles in in my apartment, and I’m hesitant to even run to the bathroom while leaving them lit and unattended in the living room. Yes, it’s rare that these things happen. But it did, and Ms. Greene is apparently feeling guilty and devastated.
I guess this serves as a good wake-up call. There are accidents happen that we can prevent and we can’t take anything for granted.
(Thanks to Gather.com for the details on this story.)
Ashley Greene‘s apartment in West Hollywood went up in flames today. And sadly…one of her dogs didn’t make it. :( Oh God, I can’t even. Ms. Greene, her boyfriend, her brother, and one other dog are all okay.
No one knows yet what started the fire. Daily Mail reports that it began on the couch. TMZ offers the same info, adding,
12:16 PM PT A firefighter tells us … Ashley, her boyfriend and her brother were out late last night and were sleeping when the fire broke out on the living room sofa. They ran out of the apartment, and then realized the dogs were still there. The 2 men tried to get back in to rescue them but couldn’t. We’re told Ashley wanted to keep the dog that died, so firefighters wrapped it in a sheet and gave it either to Ashley or one of the 2 guys.
Oh God :( again.
There are also conflicting reports as to whether two or three people separate people were treated for injury and/or burns. Eonline! reports three.
Ms. Greene lives on the 3rd floor of the old school Granville Towers. My heart is aching for her right now.
And other things, too, but mostly the taint thing, because that was the most amusing part of the interview. Here’s Ashley discussing ‘Twilight’ and Kristen Stewart and everything else you just have to hear about to make it a perfect Monday evening.
Ashley on the funniest part of ‘Breaking Dawn: Part 2′:
“We secretly coordinated a dance-off during a scene! We were all in on it, but [director] Bill Condon didn’t know. [All the vampires] were supposed to charge at each other and destroy each other, but instead we just started dancing! Everyone did it—the Cullen clan and probably 20 vampire extras! It was such an amazing way to end it all.”
Wow. Yeah, not amazing at all. I’m thinking something more along the lines of “insufferably cheesy,” but hey. What do I know? I’m a lowly blogger, and not a titty-baring actress.
Ashley on her ex-boyfriends:
“I certainly have [been in love]. I can still love an ex as a person, regardless if the breakup was bad. I would never wish anything negative on them. It takes more energy to hate them than to wish them well.”
So she can love an ex as a person? Because guys, there’s this one ex I have that I definitely do not love as a person, because the whole point of ending the relationship was to rectify the fact that I somehow ended up with a person who was NOT a good person. And why would I want to love someone as a person if they sucked at it hard?
Anyway, moving on—Ashley on that taint thing:
“Hopefully it won’t taint [the movie] and people will still be able to enjoy it. I think a lot of people see us as our characters. I really want them to still be able to do that.”
Well. I guess we know that Ashley’s not nearly as friendly with Kristen outside of the ‘Twilight’ franchise as she is in it. But hey. We got to “hear” Ashley say “taint.” Isn’t that probably the most amusing thing she’s done anyway?
I ask the question, friends, because sometimes I’m honestly on the fence about this girl. Sometimes I’m just not sure whether she’s hot, cute, average, alright, or flat-out funk. So I’m going to leave these photos here and allow you to decide, because generally, I trust the opinion of Evil Beet consensus.
This photo, for example:
We’ve all seen this girl’s tits, so we know that the bra is false advertising. Not that there’s anything particularly wrong with that, but it’s creating an image that just doesn’t exist, and that might be strike one against the lovely Ashley. Also, the photo in question makes us wonder if Ashley Greene’s as heavy-lidded in the eyes as she appears, and I wonder if that’s at all hot. She’s got an unquestionably cute little tummy, and her legs are nice enough, but is it enough-enough to render her as hot as some people say? Well. We’ll see.
Last, take this photo into consideration before you make your decision. It’s of Ashley in that arched-back position, her hair flowing back from her head and her lips slightly parted in SEDUCTION:
Final review—Ashley Green: hot or not?
You guys, I almost totally forgot! The Entertainment Lawyer who scribes Crazy Days and Nights is finally “naming names,” as is his hallowed New Year’s Day tradition.
Emily hit on some of the year’s best, most salacious scandals, but you guys! THERE IS SO MUCH MORE.
- Now we know for sure: Lea Michele is starting to behave like a real diva.
- Chris Brown is kind of a dickwad—a “Don’t you know who I am?” kind of dickwad.
- Stars who hate each other: Rob Lowe and Amy Poehler, Evan Rachel Wood and Kate Winslet.
Now, you don’t need to be a Twilight fan to appreciate the attractiveness that these two women exude. … Wait, what’s that, you didn’t know they were part of the Twilight franchise? You didn’t know there was anyone aside from Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner? Well then. Surprise!
Here’s a little background information on both of them (not that it’ll really factor in to “who’d you rather,” but whatever):
- Nikki Reed‘s the one who married a creepy American Idol alum after dating for, like, three weeks or something
- Ashley Greene‘s the one who had the nude photo scandal* a few years ago that no one cared about
- Nikki Reed recently said that “not everyone on the set of the movies are friends,” so that means everyone probably hates her
- Ashley Greene thinks she’s comparable in looks and acting ability to Angelina Jolie
So … Who’d you rather?
*Not that it should, you know, sway your decision in any way, because we *don’t* have photos of a naked Nikki Reed, but here’s those NSFW Ashley Greene nudes, after the jump, if you’ve never seen them before.
