There has been kindness from Joyce and Carlton that is for sure, but I wasn't as invested in them as our relationship was just developing. But I have so much respect for Joyce repeatedly standing up for what is right and not being afraid to hold her ground. I recall how she looked me in the eyes and told me how she tried to warn me at the beginning, about the nastiness behind my back from people I naively adored.
Brandi was so eager to be part of our group, to immerse herself in my world and she was well aware that Scheana was in Vanderpump Rules, its first season, and that Scheana had worked for me for five years. Nothing could change that. Sometimes planets collide and that's what happened in this instance. Of course paths would cross.
I can't attack. Of course, there are many things on all of them I could call out -- secrets that have been shared, scenarios I have witnessed. Some would be an easy target, but that's not who I am nor who I want to be. So, there we have it.
In reference to Brandi's comments saying David works for a living -- inferring Ken doesn't is so disrespectful. Regardless of what he has done for her, my husband has diligently worked his whole life, starting with nothing, digging ditches, taking risks with his savings to create a business. He even bought his parents a house before he bought his own. He has loved and cared for us, and I resent that coming from somebody like her. I was a huge supporter as she relayed her story to me -- a divorcee, struggling, desperate to join this group for all the opportunities that would accompany it. I was her biggest advocate. That was my first mistake -- defending her, often to my detriment. That will never be resolved. That train has well and truly left the station.
