We all know Melissa was desperate to prove I had something to do with the "set-up" at the fashion show so she could focus on me instead of what whoever was trying to expose about her. Again, I could care less what she did or didn't do in the past, but it wasn't me. And she keeps trying to beat an apology out of me. I'm sorry but I can't apologize for something I didn't do.
Kim D. explained very clearly to everyone a million times that Melissa was going after her business and her livelihood, so she was mad at Melissa and allowed someone Melissa used to work with to approach her. Melissa was mad at Kim, Kim was mad at Melissa. They tried to hurt each other. Kim apologized, and Melissa and my brother apologized to Kim. It should have been a done deal then, right?
Except Jacqueline got involved. Jacqueline told my brother that it really was me. And for some reason I will never understand, my only brother, my own flesh and blood, chose to believe Jacqueline over me. I know this because he told me. He told me what Jacqueline said, that he believed her, and then texted me, "You're dead to me." And we didn't speak for a YEAR following that. Not over the holidays, not through the hurricane, nothing. So, yes, I blamed Jacqueline. Why wouldn't I? She knows she was lying, she knows her words had power because she was my friend, and she told my brother anyway.
