What a reunion.....You asked your family not to speak of Joe's pending court case on camera because of the ramifications and I understand your request. As soon as cameras start rolling everyone including your family and especially your sister in law seemed eager to discuss Joe going away. Compare that to you flat out walking away from the cameras when conversations opened up regarding Melissa stripping when Kim D was trying to engage you in exposing her. You 100% avoided the convos except to give Melissa a heads up in the Ladies room.
You sharing your story with the magazine about your hubby going away was on your terms - requesting your family not to discuss it on camera is a fair request. Compare that to Jaq not wanting to speak of her son being diagnosed with Autism - yet ok with speaking with it in a magazine interview. Everyone honored her request - due to it also being of personal nature.
Jaq showed complete spite in the reunion - I feel for her situation as I am sure you do but she has a below the belt gut punch that there is no excuse for. Her testimony in Joe's case would never hold up in court because she is a hostile witness.
I hope the cast has a shake up next year to even the playing field the Teresa gang up is exhausting to watch - I am sure you must be exhausted living it. Thank God for Dina - nice to have a voice of reason and someone who gets what you are going through. " They" hate that she is on your side and i love it.
Defending yourself - your friends won't ask you to and your enemies wont believe you - it's just so sad when your enemies are your family. You are a survivor - hang in there.
