Just to fill all of you in, I haven't seen Lauri for over two years. I was invited to George and her wedding at their home a few years ago, and I even had her daughter Ashley to our vacation home in Arizona, and there were never any issues or conversation about anything negative. I always wanted the best for her and her family and am very hurt that she would stoop so low with the things she has decided to "throw up" on me this year.
There is much more to be revealed in the upcoming weeks, so I don't want to give it away but what I will say is I'm not letting this subject end or her get away with it. My thoughts about bringing this up about Brooks on Tamra's wedding dress shopping is: POOR TIMING! She obviously wanted to try and break me by saying what she did about Brooks in front of everyone the way that she did. If she really was a class act and really had compassion, she would have taken me aside, one-on-one and told me what she heard.
After I got home I reflected that night about what Lauri said. I spent quite a long time on the phone with Brooks trying to comprehend many things, but one of the most important things was MOTIVE. What was her motive to do and say this? When I spoke to Brooks, his story was quite a bit different than hers so right now I choose to believe Brooks. Everything Lauri has said about me has been blatant lies so why would I start to believe her now? Brooks told me that George's daughter and a few of their friends were cocktail waitresses at a poker party that he was at and that she introduced herself to Brooks, stating that I knew her stepmom. Brooks said he never saw her after that evening, didn't date her, didn't give her money and didn't take her out to eat. Someone is lying and I choose to believe it is Lauri. . .AGAIN. Bottom line is I am not here to defend Brooks or to fight his battles.
