Heather Weighs in on the Dinner Party
Heather explains why she's been quite and what Terry was really meant when he spoke to David.
This was a very long season and after filming the Reunion I decided I needed a break. It was a multi-hour, very intense day, and, at the end, I felt that I had made my amends and that the audience would be satisfied with my responses to all of the situations that occurred this year. However, because of the overwhelming response to the final dinner party, I thought I'd make a few comments.
If you filmed someone for a year you cut together two very different movies of their lives. You could show every amazing thing they did and said and make them a hero -- or you could show every regrettable moment and misstep and make them a villain.
This season, sadly there were some bad moments for myself and Terry. Many of these you will understand after watching the Reunion, and some were just regrettable and required apologies. No one is perfect, certainly not us. This show is small glimpses of our lives. You as the audience are privy to what's going on in everyone's world . We are not and sometimes we act and react differently than you'd expect because we didn't have that knowledge. There were also many situations this season that became such a big game of telephone. It was hard to keep track.
Terry and I have been together for almost 18 years and I have never seen him speak to another person as he did to David at Vicki's party. SO not like him. All I can say is Terry never heard David OR Eddie yell out lewd things to me at the hoedown. We were told repeatedly by a very reliable (or so we thought) source about what David had said and they made it sound VERY bad. That was what Terry was reacting to.
We heard about the incident right before Bali, which is why it wasn't brought up at Lizzie's dinner party. When we eventually watched the episode we didn't think it was bad and wished we had never heard about it in the first place. For some reason, it really struck a chord with Terry. Terry is not elitist. He was raised by a plumber/construction worker and was making a comment referring to guys on a worksite whistling at girls going by. The reference wasn't meant to be demeaning. Of course it came across terribly and he is very sorry about that and he apologized to David.
I hope you all watch the Reunion and see what I had to say about what was going on in my head during many of these events.
I don't know what my future is with Housewives show but I am very grateful for all of the opportunities it's presented to me and my family. I hope you have enjoyed getting to know us over the past three years and realize we are not defined by moment or a season, but by how we live our day-to-day lives, how we love our family, and how we cherish our friends.
