I wasn't going to write a blog this week. I was asked this morning for my blog and woke up to Meghan causing drama on Twitter, "fact checking" and doing a roll call for everyone that knew of David's affair. It really rubbed me the wrong way. So, I changed my mind and decided to write a blog for you all. I do have some things to say. I have incredible fans and I appreciate them so much. They want to hear my thoughts and so that's why I am writing one.
First off, I was a 'friend' this season. I understand why now, because I'm actually a great friend. Shannon hasn't acknowledged the fact that she confided in me about the affair and says that only Vicki, Heather and Tamra knew. That's not true, and perhaps she said that because she was only referring to the main Housewives. That's fine, I understand. For the record, I never heard a 'rumor' about it and if I did I wouldn’t believe it. I don't believe in rumors. Hearing Vicki tell Shannon that she was there for her when no ones else was, was very hurtful to me. I was there. I have been a great friend to Shannon and anything that she confides in me I don't breathe a word about. I defended Shannon all season. I think it's great that she has a new found friendship with Heather and Tamra, but I was there all along. I still am.
I think it's beautiful that Tamra has committed herself to Christ. It was a beautiful ceremony and I'm very happy for her. I feel really bad that this beautiful event became more about Brooks' cancer debacle. I have expressed my views on this before. I don't "fact check" my friends. I will believe my friends until the point that I can't anymore. Whatever is going on with Vicki and Brooks doesn't have anything to do with this beautiful baptism. If Brooks is lying about something as serious as cancer he will have to suffer because of it. We all sin and we all suffer for our sins, no matter the magnitude. Do I think he is lying about cancer? I will be honest, a lot of stuff doesn't add up. If he is lying, more than anything, I feel sorry for him. I also feel sorry for Vicki if she has been caught up in a mess of this caliber. I really can't imagine someone doing that and I don't know why someone would do that. It's very sad.
I am friends with both Vicki and Shannon so the feud that erupted at the baptism was upsetting to me. I can totally understand why Shannon was upset. When you confide in your friends, you trust them. That was a low blow from Rhonda and seemed to come out of left field. I did not know that Shannon was openly talking about the affair this season (on the show) until that point. So at the time it was said, I was like, "woah!" Shannon had confided in me regarding the affair, but I never spoke about it.
I feel like this season has ended on a very sad note. I care about all the women on the cast of this show. I hope time can bring clarity and forgiveness for everyone. After all, we all live in glass houses.
