Jacqueline says congrats to Christine and Gia, and talks about her relationship with her own daughter, Ashley,

on May 10, 2010

 

Let me start off by saying how proud and happy I am for Christine getting the opportunity to model with the best in the industry! Christine, I always thought you were a beautiful girl. You have a lot going for you. Always stay true to who you are and what you believe in. Do you remember our private talk we had out back of your house last year? Just remember that you control your own life and you make your own choices. Nobody else can tell you how to feel about another human being or about a particular situation. You should always stand up for how you feel, what you believe in, and make the right choices for what's right for you and don't you EVER be afraid to respectfully express that to ANYbody. Be strong and when you need help, don't be afraid to ask for it. You're a great kid and I know you'll go far. I wish you the best of everything. I wish Jillian the same. You are great kids.

Danielle, stop looking at yourself in those scenes and take a closer look into your daughters eyes and what she's crying out to say. PAY ATTENTION, PUH-LEASE!!! Three words for you this week: CALCULATING, TRANSPARENT and NARCISSISTIC! I hope you see it.You talk about our "true colors showing"? What chu talkin' bout, rainbow bright? Again, Danielle's scenes speak for themselves. No explanation needed.

Prior to filming, in a desperate attempt to maintain her position on the show, Danielle reached out to me to apologize for all of her wrong doings and swore she was a changed person and was moving forward in a positive direction. Even knowing the hell she put everyone through with her lies and everything else that she did, a part of me still felt sorry for her and wanted to believe that she truly wanted yet another chance. She seemed desperate. She went after me because she was hurt by what she saw I said on the show last year. I still don't see what I said that was so horrible. I was always honest with her from day one and I always gave her the benefit of the doubt. If I heard a rumor, of which there were MANY, I always confronted her with it like she had asked me to. (Then she lied to my face.)

ANYway ... I told her before we started filming that I accepted her apologies and I apologized to her as well if I had hurt her and she agreed that we would move forward as "peaceful acquaintances." Too much had happened and I really didn't trust her 100% with everything that she had done, but I didn't wish her any harm. I wanted to go my way and I wanted her to go her way. I told her I wouldn't talk poorly of her either. I did wish her and her children well. If I saw her out in public I would treat her respectfully and not make her uncomfortable. I told her that this was all I could offer her right now and that my husband was also uncomfortable with her as well. I wasn't going to cut her out 100% from my life, but I wasn't going to let her 100% in. She told me she respected that and understood my reasons why and that it was all she could ask for. I would text her from time to time congratulating her every time I heard great news about her or Christine. I told her that I wouldn't be hanging out with her, but she still continued to call me to do things with her anyway, knowing that my answer would be no. I feel like she enjoys putting me in awkward and uncomfortable situations. Friends don't do that to each other. I feel that she's a very calculating person. Besides what I was hearing her say about me around town combined with leaving those two empty chairs at her luncheon and making an announcement to everyone as to why I wasn't there just proved to me that she hadn't changed. She still has a vendetta against me and my family for rejecting her.
