Lydia explains why she had to get up at the reunion and what she thinks about Briana's behavior.

There is no disputing that this show is full of drama. We are all strong, opinionated, different woman. We butt heads at time, but we also are a family. At least, that's how I see it. I have been hurt, frustrated and angry at some of the ladies at different times, but each of them has qualities that I admire and love. I don't do well with tearing each other down. I like building people up. It's kind of an oxymoron being involved with a show like this, knowing at my core who I am. . .But I don't regret this journey for a second and who knows. . .Maybe I'll be back. . .

Xo, Lydia
