The finale episode was so emotional. I was surrounded by those that I love in my personal life and those that I love in my professional life -- you the fans. It really moved me.

To see the journey that I've taken from Season 1 of The Real Housewives of New York City, when I had no money in the bank and no romantic prospects, yet knowing that I could make something out of my life, was really intense.

I really did work so hard and, for someone who isn't religious, I had so much intense passion and faith knowing that something great was possible. I'm so happy that you got to see every single stage of it since five seasons ago because I aired this all to show you that anything is possible.

I'm proud of my family, my staff, of Shed Media (my production company), of Bravo, and of you for believing in a show simply about life -- no unnecessary drama, no meanness, cattiness, and no guilt. I'm proud of a show that you can feel good about watching.

Rest assured there will be a Season 3. We start filming soon and will be back before you know it.

I love you. XO
