She's Not Gonna Take It
Brandi has 10 retorts to the Game Night kerfuffle, including the one thing that put her over the edge.
Is it just me or does "Game Night" make "The Dinner Party from Hell" look almost enjoyable? Watching this episode gave me so much anxiety. Having to relive it in front of an audience is almost as painful as it was living it that night. There are a few things I want to address here and then I hope to leave Pam's "Game Night" in my past for good.
1. Do not attack my babies. Life has thrown me more than a few curveballs, and I can handle most of them -- but talking about my children is crossing the line. At that point in the evening I had already felt both alienated and attacked. I was already very defensive and I had officially reached my breaking point. I'm human. There was only so much I could take and, to be frank, only so much I would take. I refuse to be anyone's punching bag. I have had my fair share of heartbreak these past few years and have developed a thick skin, but I was beyond shocked to see such a gross amount of bullying from grown women. It was actually a little sad.
2. Yep, I said the f-word a lot. I'm sorry if that offends you, but I am not going to pretend to be anyone else but myself.
3. I have learned many lessons in my life from my mama and this is one: When people call you a name, if you just agree with them it can help identify the root of the problem more quickly. It's like, "Sure. What else you got?" So I agree with their unfounded name-calling and interestingly enough, they had nothing else to say to me. Hmmm. I guess it's their issue, not mine.
Because what's the harm in agreeing with them? If they are calling you names, it's not like their opinion should hold that much weight anyway. It's like, "Really? What else you got?"
4. No, I do not believe that Kim was on crystal meth, and for that I apologize. I am also not 100 percent sold it was merely anxiety medication. Didn't she tell Kyle she was inhaling air freshener? So maybe I was wrong: it wasn't crystal meth, it was Febreeze. Under extreme circumstances I have taken anti-anxiety medication, and it did not require me to make 10 to 15 bathroom trips in the matter of four hours. Just sayin'.
5. Taylor: don't worry about my self-esteem. I appreciate it, but I haven't felt this good about who I am in years.
6. I don't care who it is: when someone attacks me (after hiding my crutches, might I add) and hovers over me with a finger pointed in my face, I will not run off with a tail in between my legs. So I don't care who you are, if you attack me, I will stand up, balance on one Michael Kors wedge and push your finger out of my face. It's just that simple.
7. When someone is dealing with an injury or a disability, it's really funny to hide their means of support, right? It's really funny to hide someone's crutches. Isn't it interesting that Kyle and Kim question my etiquette, morals, and upbringing, and yet they hide an injured woman's crutches? Hilarious.
8. There are three sides to every story and everyone saw the truth. Kyle's version was entertaining, wasn't it? I should have gotten a bowl of popcorn and some red vines because that story was straight out of her imagination.
9. I went to the charity event to support Camille, and it was clear I would not entertain their childish games. That was not the time nor place.
10. I have been blessed. I have met people from all walks of life from places all over the world. I have met many lovely, respectable and extremely classy people that have lived in mobile homes. What about living in a trailer makes you trash? I don't get the connection. While I grew up in a loving home, my upbringing was far from glamorous. I grew up with parents that taught me that bullying is an indefensible crime. I guess they don't teach that to child stars.
And maybe I didn't grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth, but at least I was taught to chew with my mouth closed. . .
