Thoughts and recaps to the season and NYC reunion.

on Apr 23, 2008


Your relationship was front and center once again in this episode. Do you ever wish people would just drop it and mind their own business, or do you welcome the advice?

It is not as harsh as wishing people would drop it. I was harsh with Jill at my birthday, and that was simply an accumulation of endless questions about my relationship. I love Jill dearly. I didn't mean it literally and Jill knows that, and I respect that people thought it was harsh. I am very rough around the edges, scrappy and very unedited. Sometimes I go too far, but without those slipups, I wouldn't be the brutally honest person that I am and have been all season. I think it is extraordinary and beautiful that people are concerned and interested and reach out. It's human nature to want to know what goes on with others. We are voyeurs. It's why our show is so successful. How could I possibly be upset? The number of letters and emails and baked goods orders I've received on has been astounding. I read them all and I'm so touched by all of the advice and compassion I've received.
