My final blog entry comes straight from the heart. In truth, I have moved past all of the drama, and I don't want to acknowledge it anymore. This is my final blog and I want to dedicate it to all of you that have supported me immensely throughout this experience. I really appreciate the time you took to write me and share your perspectives; you have given me some really great advice. I also appreciate the constructive criticism because it helped me think about the choices I have made and the things I have said. I feel like we have gotten to know each other throughout this experience and while some may call you viewers or fans, I would like to call you friends.

Joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been an incredible journey. There are many people behind-the-scenes that work extraordinarily hard to make this show a success and they rarely get acknowledged so I am giving credit where credit is due!

I would like to start by thanking Evolution and their incredible staff from the Executive Producers to the Production Assistants and everyone in between. I would also like to thank everyone at Bravo who work equally as hard to make this show a success. Thank you to all of the media outlets that cover the show. I enjoy reading your creative and witty recaps and blogs and appreciate your sense of humor. Bonnie Fuller and her staff at Hollywood Life were wonderful to work with. StoopidHousewives.com and RealityTea.com always make me laugh and supporters like Lucien Simpson (@mintedroyalty), Coleen (@chicagocollen), Jim Kaurudor (@bitterjim2u), @piazzaalexander and all of my Twitter friends are truly special. Without all of you this show couldn't happen. I wish I could name everyone but you all know who you are and I thank each and every one of you for your hard work and dedication to making The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills a success.

I have learned so much from this experience and it has changed my life in ways I couldn't have dreamed. My husband Dean and I have grown closer as we discussed the things I've said on the show. I regret many things that I have said without thinking, but my husband and I are deeply in love and after 16 years we know how we truly feel about each other. Dean is an incredible man and he knew that I didn't intend on hurting him. I am blessed to have him and my beautiful family and I am grateful for their love and support; it means everything to me.
