Everyone deals with challenges differently. I was the first to admit last year that there were days I didn't want to get out of bed, but I have four girls that look up to me to see how I handle tough situations. My belief is that you get out of bed, you put a smile on your face, you put one foot in front of the other, and you trust in God. I choose to be positive. It's a choice. It's not because I'm too stupid to know what's going on or trying to be fake. It's because I've always been a positive person, and I want my children to be as well. Whatever works for you, God bless!

While I was going through a very difficult period in my life last year, we filmed Seasons 3 and 4 back-to-back. It was rough, and looking back, there are definitely situations that I would have handled differently. All I can do is apologize, learn from them, and move on. I have personally and sincerely apologized to everyone on the show more times than I can count. I would love to resolve any of the outstanding issues from last year with my family and friends because I do love them all, but it just takes time. I do and have always wished them all the best. This first episode was rough, but you'll see me really work hard to support Melissa and repair things with my brother. And there are fun times coming up, I promise!
