I have so many emotions running through me after watching this week's episode. To be honest, when I first began this Housewives experience, I thought I would be the girl who didn't argue with anyone in our group. I truly thought I would be the peacemaker; the one who tried to put fires out. But after a summer with Vicki, I have to say, I was wrong! It honestly takes a lot to get me angry. As you can tell by the fight with Vicki at Watermark, even then I threw in the towel and bit my tongue. At that point, I was trying to salvage any chance at a friendship that there could be. Now, after eight months of filming and events, all I can say is just wait for the reunion show! At the reunion show, I didn't bite my tongue anymore because Vicki had already called me so many names. At the reunion show it was time for me to stand my ground. In San Fransisco, however, I was not even angry yet. At that point, it was simply communication. I was only trying to make a point, to tell her I was tired of endless badgering, but Vicki is impossible to talk to unless you are only LISTENING in the conversation. I know Vicki is claiming that I was wrong to address my issues with her at the lunch table, however, I refused to talk about it THREE TIMES. I even said that I thought we should discuss it later. Vicki was the one who would not allow the conversation to end, which is evident by her statement, "Bring it on!" What ceases to amaze me is that SHE demanded to talk about it, yet she could not finish what she started ... and had to run out of the restaurant crying instead. Point made.

I also know Vicki called me a hypocrite because I prayed for her daughter, Briana, after fighting with Vicki. I told the ladies, "This is silly. This fighting isn't what life is about ... Life is about family. Briana is here, stuck in the middle of all of this, and SHE is what matters. I want to pray for her." So, I prayed for her. And in my opinion, there is NEVER a wrong time to pray. God hears you at all times, and prayers are answered. If that makes me a hypocrite, so be it. I'd rather be a praying hypocrite than a non-praying socialite.

As for Tamra being caught in the middle, never in a million years was I trying to drag Tamra into the middle of this argument and turn her against Vicki. As you all saw, Tamra mentioned numerous times she was tired of Vicki talking to us the way she did. I simply made Tamra accountable for what she had said. I know Tamra says she is friends with Vicki, and I will never stand in the way of that. However, I will hold you accountable for what you tell me.
