Casey Cohen explains how proud she was of Chanel's stance against her ex-boyfriend.

It's so important to be there for others not only to better them, but to learn and better yourself. I’m really proud of Chanel. As her best friend, watching her hurt pains me. It’s really hard to stand up to people that have hurt you, and it takes a lot of courage to say things that need to be said. I always remind her that she should never settle for anything less than she deserves. Mike doesn't deserve Chanel... at all. Even though it was hard for her to tell Mike (her ex) about the way she felt, I’m really happy she got the closure she needed about her relationship. I spoke to her that night and told her then how proud I was of her because the hardest obstacles we face are our own fears. Pushing through those fears we learn that we are unstoppable, and we shouldn’t settle for anything less than we deserve. I know there is someone out there that is right for Chanel, and every relationship brings us closer to finding the one.

I was really looking forward to going to singles Jewish camp with the girls because I have never even heard of such a thing before and was open to seeing what it was about. I’m definitely the camp type. I went to Timber Lake Camp, a sleepaway camp, for eight years. They were some of the best summers of my life, learning responsibilities, making friends, and playing sports. When I was old enough, I even was fortunate enough to work there as a counselor and contribute to the Ceramics department. I still talk to my campers today and appreciate the experience to grow and take care of others. I was disappointed that we didn't go to the Jewish camp, and wound up at a local bar where we could make the most of the situation. I don't ever really get up and dance in bars that I go to. I was glad to see that the other girls were having fun dancing, and glad for the opportunity to sit and relax, since I work in a hospitality company usually four nights a week.
