Bravotv.com: How did you feel going to the boat party? Did you think this would really provide resolution for the group?
Melyssa Ford: I was anxious about going on the boat but I knew that certain members of the group were going to try to resolve the issues. Others, I'm convinced, enjoy the drama.
Daisy Lewellyn: I was really nervous. My gifts were really just a way to break the tension between us all. Some tension was higher than others, but we all had our fair share. I was pretty shocked when I received the invitation, but a great guest never shows up empty handed. So my EffortlessChic boxes were a way for me to show the girls that I paid attention to each of them and cared about them all. Everyone got Positive Energy Tea. I'm actually thinking we should have all had a couple cups on our way to the boat. And then each girl got customized items and pieces that suit their personality. Brie got cute workout socks and a doggy toy since she loves Spin and got a puppy. Demetria got printed bangles from South Africa. And so on.
I thought the boat ride would be a way to have an open dialogue. Unfortunately I was rudely shut down 90 percent of the time, which was hurtful. Since when is one person’s opinion more valid than the others? So I went with hope, but left hurt.
Mica Hughes: I wasn't sure what to expect going to the boat party. I went in good faith.
Geneva S. Thomas: I was absolutely against getting on a boat with those crazy broads! LOL! But ultimately I decided to go because I'm believe in sisterhood and reconciliation. In my heart, I really want us to resolve our issues.
Brie Bythewood: Despite our differences, I honestly believed that we would find a way to come to some friendly resolve. I expected differences of opinion, but I approached the boat with a hopeful outlook.
