Hello everyone, I hope you had a great week. Did you hear? Bravo earned the highest ratings in history with our season premiere. Congratulations, Bravo, Sirens Media, and Purveyors of Pop! Your teams all work endless hours to tell our stories, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. The viewers have spoken. Many thanks to all of you who tuned in to watch. Congratulations to my fellow cast members and their families. I know sharing our lives can be difficult at times. Sometimes watching them play back has proven to be even more difficult. However, I know that I share the same feelings when I say it is rewarding to hear that you have helped someone get through a difficult situation in their lives just by sharing ours.
Which brings me to this week. You find us knee-deep in our relationships with family and friends. We have gotten to know Jacqueline, Chris, and their kids, and we really love them. Although Chris joked around with Ashlee a bit, who knew he had such a dry sense of humor? It was a difficult decision to have Ashlee leave the house. I was especially moved watching Jacqueline packing up Ashlee’s things. My heart was torn apart hearing her sobbing. As a mom I could feel her pain and disappointment so profoundly. It’s so obvious how much she loves her daughter and only wants her to find herself and succeed. We are all pulling for them. Jacqueline has kept me up to date with how Ashlee is handling life on her own, and it’s wonderful to know that she’s taking on her responsibilities and doing well. I guess their tough love was just what she needed. We got a chance to see her when she visited this past winter, and I’m happy to say that she looked fantastic and she’s a brunette again.
