I Know She Likes Me Better

Rebecca talks about her emotional connection with Jackie.

I was really interested to see how the sushi scene was going to play out this week. I thoroughly enjoyed watching myself talk with a full mouth of food...good times!  When Tiffany came in I thought it was odd, only because it was all trainers, but I was honestly not bothered for a second. Jackie and Tiffany have a history and I respect what they share. There is zero jealousy between us - it's more playful banter. No spite or contempt...EVER!

Emotionally, Jackie and I are very connected. I can only speak for myself, but I was happily exploring this newfound admiration that I had never experienced prior. The trainers' reactions in retrospect were somewhat understandable. I didn't really appreciate the approach that Jesse took in questioning us -- it felt very dark. Like he was coming from a place of jealously rather than concern for his "best friend."

I like Jesse. He cracks me up with his sharp wit. Sometimes I feel he tries to build himself up by putting others down. I LOVE watching him spin his wheels. As far as Jackie hanging with two women at once, well, all parties involved were fully aware of the situation. As long as the lines of communication are open, no one can be faulted. Besides, I know she likes me better. :) OK, I know, sometimes I can be twelve!

I did think it was cool of Erika to leave with me. She didn't really know WHAT was going on with Jackie and I, but she was concerned about me. She thought my feelings might have been hurt. I adore Erika...she really has my back! For the record, my feelings were NOT hurt. I actually had plans with friends that night and had to leave regardless. The scenes with Doug were hard for me to watch this week especially when he was talking about how this would be his last birthday. It's as if he knew on some level he didn't have much longer. That kills me. Nobody knew he was sick at his party. He was so strong and put on such a brave face. I had no idea and it was jokes and laughter, as usual, with us.

I have known Doug for years since we both taught spin classes at the same place in LA. We had a very playful relationship. I always loved to shock him with my antics. I think he appreciated my openness around the more taboo subjects. He is more understated and shy and never has a bad word to say about anyone. Doug was a one of a kind, and watching him each week, along with the rest of you, makes me feel grateful that I got to know him and have him in my life. I think the show does a great job in capturing his beautiful spirit which I know...lives on.

It's A Wrap

Gregg explains how he manages to stay out of the drama!

It's a wrap. That's all for this season. It's been a fun season and I am grateful I had the pleasure of taking part in it. The trainers will keep training, Jackie will keep making new products, and I'll keep on rockin'. I'm not sure what the future holds for all of us, but it's sort of cool everybody has their something. All of you out there reading this, just keep doing your things too.

Everyone asks how I stay out of the drama, and the truth is I don't know. Maybe I don't hold animosity towards anyone or maybe I just don't care enough to argue, either way I am always having a good time and look at the brighter side of things. I have always been very focused on the things I find to be cathartic and haven't much cared for the rest. It hasn't always proven to keep me in everyone's good graces but it has however kept me ultra focused.

So I hope you all enjoyed seeing me work it out a little like Greg Plitt and his mayo concoction. You may be wondering what happened to Victoria at the reveal. Well, she booked a job in NYC and had to leave Los Angeles a few weeks before the reveal date. I hope she is staying with it and doing well. She lived almost wo hours away from the gym and we were having a hard time getting regular workouts in, but she was definitely focused on her loss. Stay up, mami.

So thank you to everyone who watched us this year. Be sure to check out the music and be sure to keep living it up. Hopefully, we'll be seeing each other again soon. Holler to all of the trainers who I don't get to see all that often and big love to all of you.

Much Love, Dig it?
