Open Post: Hosted By Ashley Tisdale Making Her Husband Buy 400 Books For Her Architectural Digest Shoot

March 31, 2022 / Posted by:

Last year Ashley Tisdale moved into a new house when she was seven months pregnant with daughter Jupiter, who just turned 1. Apparently, Ashley is super into interior design, and she dove headfirst into decorating her new LA pad with pieces she found on Instagram. This month all her hard work paid off; she scored a coveted celebrity home tour with Architectural Digest! Oo la la.

The tour begins in Ashley’s “very bright, very zen” living room, where she shows off her Mario Bellini sofa, antique wicker chairs, marble coffee table, and built-in bookshelves. Except… those bookshelves were actually empty up until a few days before the tour. A giggling Ashley admits she told her husband, Christopher French, to go to a book store and purchase 400 books so their shelves would look full. The moment is reminiscent of Dakota Johnson and her decorative limes-lie. Except Sharpay was honest from the jump. Ashley explained:

These bookshelves, I have to be honest, actually did not have books in them a couple days ago. Um, I had my husband go to the bookstore and I was like, “You need to get 400 books.”

Obviously my husband’s like, “We should be collecting books over time and putting them in the shelves.” And I was like, “No, no, no, no! Not when AD comes!”
Here’s the video:

The moment went viral on Twitter, and some people gave Ashley flack for being phony and not appreciating books. So she hopped into the comments to defend herself:

As someone who is honest to a fault and reads approximately 1-2 books a year, I am firmly Team Tisdale! Ashley and her husband basically just donated thousands of dollars to a local bookstore. How dare anyone judge her for using her Masked Singer money to support the written word? Also, not all books deserve to be read. I’m looking at you, copy of Stephen King’s 11/22/63 that I’ve been trying to get through since the beginning of the pandemic.
