Hear from Caroline's son about the dinner table drama!

Jun 18, 2009

Hey everyone, thanks for taking the time out to read this!

First off, I got a couple questions about the shirt I wore at the finale. It is from crescenttie.com, the designer is a friend of the family and has a really great line of clothes for both men and women. I suggest you check his stuff out.

What do I think about the book?

I couldn't care less about the book, at the end of the day it was written 25 years ago. Danielle's past is none of my business.

What was I thinking when Danielle brought the book out?

I couldn't stop saying to myself, "Is she really going to do this here?" I don't see the point in showing up to a dinner party if your intention is to cause a problem. She makes it very clear in her interviews that this was a calculated move on her part, and she went to the dinner with the sole intention of bringing up the book. Don't get me wrong, I think Danielle had every right to explain herself if she chose to. She certainly didn't owe anyone in that room an explanation. But there's a time and a place for that, and the dinner was neither. There were several people in the room that had nothing to do with any of that nonsense, so why put each of them in such an awkward position? Does anyone think that it was easy for Lex and Ashley to watch their mothers scream at each other? Or for Uncle Chris to watch his wife argue with his sisters? I just can't wrap my head around the fact that a person could actually think the need to "clear something up," transcends the feelings of others in the room, especially the kids. Her own daughters said they "felt scared" and "wanted to help" I just don't get how anyone could put a child in that position. This whole thing could have been dealt with privately, all this "pain" and "embarrassment" could have been easily avoided if, you know, it wasn't addressed on national television. But hey what's done is done, and let's be honest I think we're all kind of ok with the fact the table flipped now aren't we?
