Vicki explains that she's taking things day-by-day

Fasten your seat belts; it's going to be a bumpy ride. . .again!

How did the great Bette Davis know I would need her famous quote to describe Part 1 of our season finale? She was a warrior, and so am I. As I've been known to say before, "bring it on." I am ready as I ever will be.

Most of you knew it was coming. The season has been leading up to it, without me even wanting conflict. I didn't want it, nor do I want it now.

I have said to a lot of my close friends a saying that best fits my life right now is "I'm under construction." What I mean by that, is I'm rebuilding myself to be a stronger, independent business woman who simply wants to surround myself with people who love me and believe in me and will make me smile. I'm not where I'm going to be, nor am I who I was. "I'M UNDER CONSTRUCTION" says it all.

This season, I really tried to be nice and play nice, but sometimes no matter how hard you try, it doesn't always end up the way you want it to. Heather's party was so elegant and so classy, and I was very happy to be there. Things felt like they were finally coming together for me in my life and all I wanted to do this year was to show my "reality" -- that I'm happy, a little bruised from the recent divorce, but really coming to peace with where my life is headed.
