Teresa clearly knew what these articles were going to be about, because she told me about her "vow renewal" cover and what the topics were going to be in there which she said was clearing up all of the other rumors she put out there about herself. What did she think the "friends and family bullying" article would be about? I couldn't figure out why she would want to do that. I will say it again, it's one thing to put out articles about yourself, but when she would slip things in about her friends and family, that was crossing the line. I was thinking to myself, "I wish she would just tell them once and for all how she really felt instead of sending messages in magazines. Maybe then the healing could begin and she could let go of all of her resentment, forgive, and move forward." Talk about passive aggressive!
I guess I would have respected her more if instead of disregarding these articles and pretending they didn't exist, that she addressed her friends and family with some respect and apologized for the things printed and explain how they ended up in there. Why would she continue to do these covers knowing that they were mostly negative about her and her family? She allowed it.
Every other week I was reading new sob stories put out by Teresa that didn't seem to mesh with her lifestyle. I never saw her struggling and afraid of being poor. Everything was FINE! Her lifestyle never really changed. It actually got more extravagant. I was so confused as to what was really going on with her. Did she need help and was hurting or not? I couldn't tell, but when I read bad things about her, it would upset me. If you read those things about your best friend, wouldn't you be compelled to ask her how she is doing or wonder why she hasn't mentioned anything to you AT ALL about it? That is the kind of thing that me and my other best friends talk to each other about. Call me crazy, but I think anyone with a heart would be worried about their friend, if, in fact, they were a true friend.
