Welcome back, we open with this ongoing situation between Adrienne and myself. After my thank you note, she had reached out to initiate a meeting. It was a long awaited resolution that was clearly needed in order for us to move on. I have always, since entering into this domain, been open and honest with you, and now as you witness this attempt at repairing a friendship that lay in tatters, I can't deceive you and pretend that it will ever be resolved truly, as it has been too long and too convoluted to ever hope for that friendship that was once there. . .However due to circumstances, it was essential that this came to fruition otherwise I was unwilling to even engage her.
There have been too many manufactured, unfounded stories in the press, given by one of her employees since then, that I have never reacted or retaliated to, for me to believe that this apology was sincere and her goal was to bridge the divide between us.
If you notice, when I greeted her in Ojai, we kissed which was a level of civility that certainly wasn't there previously. That's the best we could hope for at this point.
