These past two weeks the episodes in Florida were not easy to write about. As a matter of fact I’m going to make this extremely brief, because it was too upsetting to watch and comment on. One thing I will say, on a positive note, is we did actually all have a really good dinner together with the Marcheses earlier in the evening. Everyone actually seemed to finally be getting along, and quite frankly, it felt good. I must say I wish we all did not have as much to drink, because when things got heated in the house, the alcohol only escalated the situation and made things a thousand times worse.
It started with Bobby getting totally upset with me when I was falling for Jim complimenting me. I totally get why Bobby was aggravated seeing my ego getting stroked by a man who has caused so much grief and aggravation in our lives, but I will make something very clear: There is no excuse on this planet for a man to talk to a woman and use the word “stupid.” It was totally unacceptable! Yes, of course Bobby apologized, but for all the woman reading this blog, I feel verbal abuse can be just as hurtful and damaging as physical abuse. I’m a firm believer that words are extremely powerful and can lift a person up or destroy a person’s spirit. That is why these past two episodes have been extremely difficult for me to write about. There were horrific words and verbal abuse coming from Jim that night, which made both me and my sister very upset. It actually broke my heart to see my sister cry; Teresa is the toughest, strongest woman I know. I’m proud to call her my sister.
I did not appreciate Bobby leaving me downstairs, but most importantly, he should have opened the door for my sister when she came knocking. She was there without her husband, and he should have shown her respect by opening up the door.
I truly want to thank Dina for her good intentions and for keeping peace in the house. I admire Dina for her smarts, and I thank her for being a good friend. The yachting day was fun but bittersweet. I wished my sister and Rino were there the whole time. I was truly shocked when Teresa and Rino came back to the house that night. That made me really happy and I’m glad that’s how we ended the vacation.
This has been a horrific week for the Giudice family, and my prayers are with them and their amazing children.
I hope everyone has a beautiful, blessed week!
Love and Hugs,
