As I told you in my previous blog, everyone does have their breaking point; however, I’m not making an excuse or trying to justify my actions. After I lost my temper with Teresa and I realized what I had said, I apologized for my outburst. I felt terrible and I didn’t need a PR rep or publicist to tell me that I should apologize, and I didn’t need to check my Twitter or Facebook page to see what the viewers thought of my behavior. Right is right and wrong is wrong. It’s just that simple, so without leaving the couch and without anyone talking in my ear telling me what I should do, I said I was sorry. I felt bad for the things I said, because I allowed Teresa to drag me into a dark place after Teresa brought her mother and father into our conversation. Whether provoked or not, I am not proud of my outburst. I have never purposely tried to cause harm to anyone, and I do not live my life that way.
I know that you heard my sister Rosie from backstage. As upset and frustrated as I was with Teresa’s comments, Rosie was even more blown away -- she tried to leave the building and be alone. She needed to blow off steam, and who can blame her? I was glad that Lauren was able to talk to her.
We sat on those couches for over 12 hours, and it was a battle to be able to finish a complete sentence without the constant rude interruptions from Teresa! As Rosie is explaining our reasons for the distance at one time in our lives, Teresa interrupts and insists that she knows more about our relationship than we do. You can’t imagine how terribly frustrating it is to be asked a question, try to give an answer, and be continually interrupted by someone who truly has no idea what they are talking about! I find it amazing that the person who has the most difficulty maintaining any semblance of a healthy relationship claims to be the expert on my marriage, my relationship with my sister Rosie, and the relationship that existed between my father and his daughters. How does she come up with this stuff? Really!
