Heather had told me she had some news to tell me at lunch. After she told me it all made sense. Gretchen lied to me! Gretchen had been telling Heather the same story about how she got this role and she would be filming on Friday but decided to give it up just to be with me. Heather being the professional did not tell G she had been cast on that show and that she knew there was no offer given to Gretchen -- only a casting call that many reality stars were called for including Alexis. That was quickly abolished before interviews ever happened.
Honestly it breaks my heart that she would lie to me after I had just opened up to her. But what hurt me even worse is her text to me two days after dress shopping.
Basically, she texted me to tell me what a great friend she was to give up her first role on a sitcom to spend that important day with me.
