In England, where I am from, my parents sent me to a very posh all girls, Catholic convent school. The Our Lady (Notre Dame) Acadamy. It was a school dedicated to young ladies, guaranteed to give your child an excellent education, and an indoctrination into being a lady. In actuality, what I encountered during my time there, was a bunch of mean and often very jealous (young ladies). I was so glad to graduate and I moved on.
Now, I am a grown woman, a mother, a CFO, a mentor, and a professional in the work environment. Never did I think back to those days until recently during my time on Married to Medicine. I was once again catapulted back amongst a couple of mean girls. Girls, whose sole purpose is to bring you down in a way to make themselves feel elevated.
It came as no surprise to me that the reunion would be any different. I had dealt with it all season, and so I knew what I was going into. My thoughts were, just be real, be yourself, be kind, forgive, and take the high road. That was my MO. I may have been roped into their pettiness during the season, but I certainly was not going to fall prey to it anymore.
The reunion began with Mariah's rude and disrespectful introduction of Toya and me, trying to instantly put us down. It showed to me that she is still full of anger to and resentment. I have to admit that even I was not prepared for some of the lies that were thrown into my direction. I have not been called names since middle school, but recently I was called a "liar" by Mariah, several times in fact. It is a word that she likes to throw out randomly when you catch "her" in a lie. It is her only defense. I do not lie because it just makes you look like an idiot when people find out the truth. It is a waste of my energy. I would like her to bring up ONE thing that she can "prove" that I have ever lied about. She would be hard-pressed to do so with any proof. Anyone can make senseless accusations, and the reunion had plenty of those, but I prefer to work with facts and there are many facts that can prove I have not lied.
