I’m not going to relive all the drama of the season tonight. I’ve already addressed it in previous blogs. I’ve received thousands of comments regarding tonight’s episode with everything from "I love you," to "You’re a bully." I get it; it’s totally expected and normal to have a mixed bag of emotions. Guess what? It is what it is. There was absolutely no way in the world I was going to sit quietly and listen to the lies and accusations that were being tossed around. My reactions were genuine and heartfelt. I wasn’t playing to the cameras, and I wasn’t looking for anyone’s sympathy. Those ten hours were my last chance to say what I had to say. It was the last time we were all going to be together and there were some issues that needed to be addressed. I take full responsibility for what I said, and how I presented myself. Trust me, I had a range of emotions as I watched from happy to sad, proud to embarrassed. That makes me just like the rest of you … HUMAN. Next week is our last episode. I have my blinker on, looking forward to exiting the “crazy turnpike” and finding the “sunshine and lollipop highway”….. wish me luck. Again, I want to thank each and every one of you for watching week after week. You’re the best. Xoxo C. P.S. Kudos to my Lauren! She did my makeup as well as Jacqueline’s. Great job LaLa…. You made you’re momma beautiful. Xoxo P.P.S. I have a new advice column and website! Check it out! (please) and (Caroline Rules).
