Hi lovers! We’re baaack! Miss us much? Well you’ve seen what we have done for the holidays, so now it’s time to see how we roll in the summer time. It’s a season with everything, trust me. Arguments, drama, love, tears, passion, fun, laughs, and a lot of skin!

You see in the very beginning scenes from last season, with Teresa and I hugging and telling each other that we love one another. When I talk it out and forgive and let something go, I truly mean it. I threw in the towel that day and was ready to enjoy her company, not just co-exist. I was done with all the petty games and nonsense, and Teresa said she was too. So with that in mind, yes, I was a little confused when the book came out and she threw a dig at me. At the end of Season 3, the book wasn’t done yet because the night we took the family picture she was passing around pages and pictures trying to decide which ones to put in the book. Once we started filming Season 4 the book came out and there was the dig. I was a little taken aback, because I thought we decided not to go down that road, but I decided to let this pass and not make a big deal of it.

So here we are with Season 4, the cookbook obviously being a focal point because it upset people. I didn’t tell my husband because everyone was starting to come together and I didn’t want to take a chance and ruin it. It just seemed a little petty and childish. Was I aggravated? YES! Was I going to do anything about it? NO! At Kathy’s BBQ they start talking about the book and it cuts to Kathy saying, “Teresa always says family is everything, Prove it.” It just gets you thinking and wondering why Teresa would even go there.

I will say it was interesting to watch Caroline and Teresa talk outside of Jacqueline’s house, because when Caroline brings up the dig about me, Teresa says in a very matter of fact way, “If the shoe fits!” Why? We’ve come so far. The last time we left off everything was moving in the right direction. It does make me think maybe Teresa had no intention of moving on and was just being nice for the cameras.
