Kari apologizes to Dr. Jackie for the Lemon Squeeze gone wrong and explains why she brought back-up.

on May 3, 20130

First and foremost, I think I owe Dr. Jackie an apology. At the time I did not realize how much time and thought she had put into the Lemon Squeeze, and now I really appreciate her effort to get the ladies together to make peace.

It was hard for me to sit there and keep silent, since I was still furious at Mariah. I had not received an explanation or an apology from her since the party -- only a letter from her stating that she would be canceling all charges, as I explained in an earlier blog entitled "Paypal is No Friend of Mariah's"

The reason I never lie is because not only is it bad energy, but you look like a fool when you get caught.

Well it sounds as if noth Kari nor Mariah can't make up their minds about who "paid" for the party..At the wine tasting, Kari tried to give Mariah half of her money back...but after the fight, mariah said that's how they treat you after they get your coins....but then when mariah and aydin were together, they said they paid for the party..then mariah did say kari was lying about her stopping payment....im confused...sound like a bunch of half truths to me...

ok  kari -i think your getting it - that make-up session with Mariah give you start back to being classy...now all you have to do is keep it up and remember she is your friend...and watch your back with Mrs Toya...plz

Whoa

I really have to say that I am trying to get to know you but you come off as EXTREMELY JEALOUS of Mariah. You're the one who jumped on the Toya bandwagon and I get it, ladies. None of you have half the character of Mariah rather she is this or that, the public loves her because she has a real personality to show us and she is fabulous. Toya was so in the wrong and you new it but you were so happy to find someone to talk about Mariah with because you are so JEALOUS. All these comments to you that your so beautiful, really, its because people see you need it because apparently you do not feel good about yourself and they are trying to help. You could not move on from talking about Mariah and you act like you wish you could strip her and wear her like some Louis Vuitton. Also, that "cream rises to the top" comment you made may have went over dumb Toya's head, but I catch airplanes and I knew exactly EVERYTHING you meant by it. Besides that  comment you validated my suspicions with the she should be acting like the poster girl of what someone coming from nothing should be acting like comment...hmmm sounds very.....yeah.... you know. I hope everyone sees you for what you really are I do and I shared it with everybody although I will not mention it here you know what you meant and so did I. Caught out there!!.. with your comments and your jealousy.

kari i have to say i like you less and less you are so lost , i liked you in the beginning but you and your spouse are lost to the real world..no women should ever act like you unless they first know whats going on something you always fell to do. you play the victim when it has nothing to do with you and you kicked everybody out of the party. Nobody wanted to leave watch the tape you were over reacting to something you knew nothing about instead of asking what happen. your guest of honor would have told you, thats what a host does, yes both women owe you an apology. and you owe mariah one because you never asked her what happen. that would have shown classic kari.

Kari, just think, if you had gone to med school you would not be subjected to baboonery. Didn't you see "waiting to exhaling" if you didn't, then you need to listen to Mary J. Bilge "not gon cry". Girl get your own money. You are NOT going to be the next Kim Zolciak.

Kari,  I have to say that I like you more and more, as we get to know you on the show.  You are a very real and beautiful woman.  I saw your family photos on twitter.  You look just like your dad.  Also like Angelina Jolie. Just ignore the haters, they are just trying to find something wrong with you.  They are jealous of your class and refinement, your european ways.   I bet many of them have not traveled, so they are judging you based on their lack of intelligence. Keep doing you and keeping it real.   You are an inspiration of how women should act. I think Mariah owes you a big apology.  I just hope she is woman enough to see that, but I seriously doubt it.  She is such a pathetic victim.

Kari, yes Mariah should apologize for fighting in your home, but on the flip side I can see why she hasn't . You and your husband ask the security team to remove her and her husband from the party. Then you lied at the lemon squeeze that you didn't as well as saying you paid for the whole party. All of the people who uses PayPal, and there is a large number that do, knows that it don't work like that?? Before you speak do your homework. Since you think you are so high class and better than the rest. And why would your husband think that Mariah should have come with her tail between her legs? She was not the only one fighting, so was Toya, and the lemon squeeze was for everyone to lay it out on the table, as well as resolve the issues at hand. Not just Mariah, all of the women. The only man who has made any sense when speaking about the fight is Cecil, Simmone's husband. He seem to not have taken sides, but rather interested in how the ladies will resolve their differences.

First and for most it takes a lot of guts to put your "life" on TV. Everyone will judge you even more so because they see the "show", but not every moment of your life is on the show so who cares about their judgment of you. Walk a mile in my shoes before you judge me and see if you still think the same way.

 

Women tend to be a little more territorial and nit-pick each other. Funny thing, at the end of the day do these women affect your life, do they stop your world from going round if they aren't on your side? We all have the right to defend ourselves and most of how we chose to do that is formed when we are growing up. Guess what, everyone doesn't have the same upbringing as the next so we all handle things differently. We have the right to our own opinion and we have the right to disagree. Just because you don't hold the same opinion doesn't mean you cannot still be friends.

 

Everyone @ some point in their life gets told "You really need to grow up" and that is definitely in the case for the tit for tat. If you cannot pull up your big girl panties, maybe you should employ a carpenter so they can build you a bridge to "get the h*ll" of it already. Everyone makes mistakes, own up to yours and move on. Life is too short for petty stuff like this to rule your daily life.

You had previously mentioned that after getting to know Toya that you don't believe that she would gossip about Lauren (a child).  At the lemon squeeze meeting, Miss Toya admitted to gossiping about Lauren to her hairdresser/friend in her home.  Somehow this information ended up at the hair salon.  You really don't know Toya, but yet  you believed what she said happen at the party.  All the women on the show refused to look closely at the episode tape.  It will reveal that Toya started this fight.  

You also mentioned that Mariah shouldn't believe gossip and should verify it first.  Well, Toya admitted to it.  Who gossips about a child with their hairdresser/friend?  This information was not for Toya to tell anyone. It's sad that Toya doesn't get it. In fact, she's not taking any responsibility in what she did.  She needs to apologize to Mariah.

Kari, granted you and Marriah have your issues, but Toya has a negative agenda where Marriah is concerned. She is trying to turn the rest of you ladies against Marriah. Now I am not saying that Marriah is innocent, as a matter of fact she is a mess. But most people laugh at people like Marriah, because we can see that it is all for show. It is all a facade, but I can deal with Marriah and her craziness, but I do not like sneaky people like Toya. Marriah is the kind of friend you either accept her silliness or you get angry at it.

Toya, started that fight. How could she expect Marriah to chastise her mother? Was Marriah supposed to give her mother a time out? It is one thing for women to gossip about one another, but you do not bring the children in to, and thats what Toya did. If you saw Watch What Happens Show, you would have seen that over 50% of the viewers agreed with Marriah. We all have crazy girlfriends who drive us crazy(and Marriah is one), but I cannot stand a sneaky, phony woman like Toya who does not like Marriah.  She should not have approached Marriah about her mother. She should not have revealed a personal family secret regarding Marriah's daughter.

Kari, don't take Marriah to seriously, but watch Toya.

Kari, please stop. You would no get a DIME outta me if you threw me out of a party I paid for.

I_am_Noni

What about Kari's lies? You say Mariah didn't pay but if memory serves me correctly, you attempted to reimburse her for the money that she paid into the party.  If it was simply in a paypal account then why would you need to write her a check?  She said she canceled the last payment for $300 or $500, you say she took back $1,200.  If we go by what you claim then you had a $2,400 party.  For a woman of your "class" why would you need to harp on $1,200.  I mean, I'm a middle class lady and paid more than that for my birthday party.  I suspect you may not have gotten half, but I wouldn't give you half when you threw me out and allowed the other party in the fight to stay.  I agree both ladies acted inappropriately, but you are taking your faux outrage too far.  Why lie about having her kicked out, then chastise her in your blog for lying. First you think Mariah should kiss your ring and now your petty husband (who predicted they would divorce, which shows what he thinks of marriage) feels as if she should have come with her tail tucked between her legs. I truly would never want you or your husband as a friend.  Instead of someone being the bigger person, you all insist on wallowing in your own rendition of the truth.  You all are petty and childish. You just have the nerve to be arrogant about it.

Instead of taking Toya's word of what happen at the birthday party.  Please take a close look at the fight episode.  Majority of the viewers are saying that Toya started this fight.  Toya confronted Mariah about her mother and touched her hair.  Then started walking toward the pool area, Toya was still running her mouth about her mother.  Mariah touched Toya's hair, but she did not hit her.  Toya throws a glass at Mariah.  If she had hit Mariah with that glass, she would have been arrested.  That was very dangerous.  Mariah was defending herself.  At this point, she wasn't fighting over what Toya said, she was defending herself.  She didn't know if she's going to pick up something else to hit her.  Both women handled this badly, but Toya was clearly the aggressor.  Mariah was thrown out of the birthday party, one of your guest Toya threw a glass at her and started the fight.  The entire situation was handled poorly (before & after fight).  What happen to innocent until proven guilty?

 

Your comment about that everyone knew Mariah's family secret.  I believe that Mariah's family and friends knew her family secret.  But somehow that family secret turned up at the hair salon and now everyone knows it.

I love how you carry yourself on the show. As a woman of color I know we can be difficult to deal with sometimes yet I love how strong you are and can deal with the other women. You, Dr. Jackie and Dr. Simone are my favorites! Mariah and Quad are an embarrassment to ALL women EVERYWHERE and poor Toya is is just confused!  Please continue to be true to yourself and I will keep you in my prayers!

If I'm tracking everything correctly here, Mariah didn't help with any of the preparations, came several hours late, then was kicked out of this party. What exactly should Mariah be paying for? Also, you should have taken that check from Toya since the glass you complain about in your pool was thrown by her. I don't necessarily think Mariah is right, but your position on the incident isn't either.

Kari what i cannot understand is how you throw out the co host  of the part and still expect to be paid why did you not throw out Toya the big trouble maker who confronted  Mariah and you took sides and throw out Mariah search yourself and look back at the show and you will see your faults.

@vcskygirl@sbcglobal.net /// Did scary kari ever apologize to mariah for attacking quad in her home? Scary kari and tacky toya had an agenda to destroy quad and mariah from the very beginning. The fight was the end result of their devious plan. So now scary kari is trying to use the fight to elevate her status on the show and boot mariah because she's jealous. Period. Kari is no lady she's a evil jealous envious lumpy lipped nut case. What makes scary kari and her husband ridiculous is after the fight he guarantees mariah's husband will divorce her. What a stupid idiot. Cant stand scart kari and her stupid delusional husband.

 @9japride  I agree.  That wasn't Mariah's party if she got kicked out of it. How can a person get kicked out of their own party, but even worse asked to pay for the party they got kicked out of?   Also, Toya offered to pay for the damages at the party, but Kari refused to take the payment.  Why would Kari refuse to take Toya up on her offer, considering most of the damage was broken glass. If my memory serves me correctly, Toya is the person that threw the glass.

 @I_am_Noni Are we watching the same show?  Mariah just said that she was not going to pay for the party that she did not attend.  Obviously the party cost a lot more than $2400. Mariah cancelled the checks and the charges on Pay Pal.  Kari was left with the bill. Mariah is very disrespectful to Kari to not call her and apologize.

 @haughtybynature I am sorry. Did you not see at the wine tasting for the Dr party (MARIAHS HUSBAND and Karis) where Kari offered her a damned check. And they made up and Mariah was so excited about the party she would throw. Her husbands guests were in attendance, the party was thrown, she acted a fool and should have paid for the damages her escapades wrought. Dont need Amy Vanderbilt (she wrote a book on etiquette I am sure you are unaware of) to know you have to suffer your consequences. And Toya did NOT speak out of turn. This adoption was presented on TV, told to Toya, who was not a family friend, and no one is surprised. Maybe a family secret should be kept in the damned family. Kari did NOTHING.

She should at least pay for her guests that showed up on time and ate and drank the booze. She wouldn't have been kicked out if she didn't cause a scene. I recall Mariah came up with idea to have a dual party so half is hers to pay. Okay, if you want to get technical.  What's half of the cost of party and divide that to how many people from Mariah's side show up then pay the girl. Then it's all done.  Mariah ruined her furnitures too and broke damn glasses by fighting.  Kari, go to her house and start brreaking shit and don't pay her nothing for the damages and see how she likes it.

 @Cocostilletto  

 Mariah never lied about canceling the check, she said it right away but she didn't cancel the whole thing as Kari is stating and that is why she called her a liar. Even Kari's husband seemed surprised on the show coming up when Kari told him she took proof his words "what proof"  Mariah, took flowers and much more the day of the party also and Kari lied about that.  What I love most about whats coming up is when Dr. Simons husband tells her, Toya and her husband that he will not treat Mariah as they are because he has known Mariah a long time and knows her to be a good women and that they need to get over it. LOL AWESOME MAN!

Mariah told Quad that she cancelled the last $300 unclaimed payment through PayPal...not the entire amount that she had paid.  You can't cancel a payment that has been claimed through PayPal.  One would have to request a refund from the person who you made the payment to.  Also, Kari confirmed that she already had received some of Mariah's money when she wrote a check to reimburse Mariah for the party after Kari disinvited Quad (Mariah's invited guest) without discussing it with Mariah, and, at that point, Mariah wanted to cancel her involvement in the party.  With that, you know some money had already been paid.  Further, it's my understanding that Mariah supplied all the alcohol for the bar separately from any payments and some other party items.  With cancelling the $300, Mariah was still out of just as about as much as Kari for a party where she was thrown out of but didn't start the fight.  Kari is lucky that Mariah didn't send her a bill for the remaining contributions to the party that she made.

 Mariah's mother might have started the argument but she did not start the fight.She walked away and left it alone, it is Toya that went around telling anyone that would listen what the mother told her.  Toya then went over to Mariah and started the fight. You sound like Kari, you have the truth all mixed up LOL!!

Kari wrote a check of 1200.00 to Mariah when they had a disagreement at the winery.  A check back for what Mariah had already paid towards the party, but they made up so she keep the check. Money that had already gone through Kari's account obviously. Mariah also delivered flowers, food, drinks and other things the day of the party, while Kari lied on camera that Mariah hadn't done a thing. The stop payment on pay pal was for 300.00 additional cost. There is no way that party looked like a $3,000.00 party since they were going half and half.  Kari decided not to have a caterer so the cost should have been even lower.  If was Mariah, I would be asking where did the money go?

LosAngelesBravoLover

@acbkatx @vera.fuselier -agreed! And Mariah's friends eat and drank for the 2 hours they were waiting!!

9japride

@LosAngelesBravoLover Correct me if I'm wrong but I didn't see anyone eating except for Kari. Now technically, if a guest were to confront a co-host and then an altercation arise, as a co-host, I wold ask the guest who caused the disturbance to leave. Toya wasn't hiding, she was in the bathroom with cameras following her! If the one host throws out the other, then the other has just been treated as a guest and with no privileges of a co-host. So I guess the question is, should a guest owe a host money for a party they were kicked out of?
