My father-in-law. I felt a strong need to talk about this as I had been dealing with this in the press for months. Every time I did an interview my side of the story was never told. There is an elephant in the room and I had to address it. I hope the viewers understand and have clarity on things now. Some may say that I have no right to condemn Danielle. Valid point. The only problem is that our stories are worlds apart. My story is not about me, or my husband. My husband and his family have a stellar reputation in the community as being a hard working, honest family, that gives back to the community in many, many ways. Now, Danielle's story is about her. Not a brother, sister, parent, or friend. HER. This reputation far precedes her coming into our lives, and the introduction of the book. To this very moment Danielle reputation is suspect in every way, shape, and form throughout HER town.
I've said in interviews over the past couple of weeks that the reunion show knocked me for a loop. It's true, I wasn't right for days following the taping. As you can see from the clips I get very emotional. I'm not looking forward to watching next weeks show, not so sure that I even will. If you don't hear from me next week, I want you all to know that I appreciate each and every one of you, and I can't thank you enough for watching and your continued support.
