Kari says she didn't ask Mariah for money -- until Mariah recended what she had already paid.

I was sad to see Mariah obviously hurting from her actions. I would not wish that kind of pain on anyone. I know that she has a good husband and a good marriage and I wish them the best. I can bet that Mariah and Quad will slam me for my comments (as they usually do) for joking about the "voices in her head" and the "orange suit," but really that was just me trying to inject some humor in a sad, stressful situation. I'm not sure that everyone gets my British humor.

I was really hard on Toya at the restaurant and I did not realize how strong that came across. In my defense, I was just still really upset. I of course wish that I had handled things much better with Mariah, but I reacted out of shock and lack of experience.

Several of the guests, as they were leaving the party informed the security officer that we had hired, "two women were getting killed in there,” and he responded appropriately. He asked the guests who were fighting to leave. I simply wanted it to stop, so I agreed with him. Toya was nowhere to be found, so Mariah unfortunately got all of his attention. I certainly did not mean to treat Mariah or Aydin disrespectfully—I just wanted peace in my home.

It was a shame that it had not been in a different venue, as I would have been able to just walk away, but because it was in our home and our two small children were in bed sleeping, I did not have that privilege.
