And so the story unfolds...
Thank you for all the supportive comments and understanding last week. I absolutely hate reliving that moment of weakness and unfortunately it spills over to beginning of this episode.
It was a terrifying moment when I decided to dance that Monday as I had been ordered by the doctor to rest for two days. All that time my blood pressure and temperature were monitored, and I really had no rehearsal, but Gleb and I knew if we withdrew that week we would be eliminated for sure. So we were damned if we did and damned if we didn't! I must add that my partner, who was new to the show, apart from being absolutely gobsmackingly gorgeous was an adorable man that I bonded with emotionally. We clung to each other through the eight weeks of our experience. One of the reasons I have loved sharing my journey with you on reality TV is to relish and savor the joyous and defining moments in our lives -- my daughter’s wedding, my son returning from school the first time all those years ago, our thirtieth wedding anniversary -- many moments I now have forever documented.
I smiled at the unequivocal support from my husband and daughter after being voted off, to them, blinded by their loyalty to me, I should've stayed till the end. That is one of the reasons why I love them as their indomitable support is what carried me through.
