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.
