While I believe that everyone has the right to their own opinion and a listening ear, I also believe that the best way to be heard is through GOOD communication. When communication fails everyone loses. . .

Let me say how extremely sorry I am to everyone who was offended by my actions. It is very inappropriate at any age to fight. As hard as it was to be mature and avoid controversy, I've learned that it is just better to ignore and walk away.

If you haven't noticed Twitter, blogs, and even reality TV have become national platforms for people to express themselves. I am humbled by the excellent opportunity we're presented with, but disgusted by the way we abuse it. For some odd reason people have resorted to cursing others out, demeaning each other and just being ignorant. I hate that I can be included in this description.

Please don't misunderstand, I acted in self-defense! As you can see in the episode, I asked Mariah to be respectful and not touch me, but matters still got elevated. I am so disgusted with people talking about who won the fight. NO ONE did, we both looked silly, especially, because we are mothers. Mothers who should be beautiful examples for our children to follow and learn from.
