Hey! I am so happy to finally be able to write a blog and chat with all of you. My schedule has been a tough one lately, but I am happy to say I am having the time of my life on Broadway working with some very talented actors. I am truly living a dream! If you haven't seen Cinderella on Broadway then catch it during the holidays -- it makes an amazing gift. I will be performing until January 3.
My Brentt is growing up and learning to drive. Thank God Gregg no longer wears a helmet when riding with him, LOL! My advice to him has been that you have to drive for you and everybody else. He has completed a driver's ed course and now has a learners permit! He drives with an adult in the car at all times until he turns 16.
Going into dinner with these ladies will never be a fun thing for me, and that probably will never change, but I've made a few changes of my own. I have come to a place in my life where I just don't have the time or energy to entertain people who don't like me or support me, people who hurt me and that pull energy instead of giving energy. Those that never compliment but always ridicule. Those that manipulate and lie. The people you know who are willing to turn on you for so called opportunities or the almighty dollar with no explanation! The people that want everyone to believe you're the bad guy when in reality they are. The people that stab you in the back and watch you bleed with no sympathy. The only people I need in my life are those that need me in theirs, even when I have nothing to offer but NeNe. You want to come into my life, the door is open! If you want to get out of my life, the door is open. I have simply come to a place where I do what's best for me and my little life. Not because I've changed, not because I'm better than. Yes, growth is a beautiful thing, yet I'm still that girl who will get you together. Still that girl who will give you a good read. Still that girl that speaks her mind. But a smart girl always walk away from those that are looking for a MOMENT! I will no longer coexist with people who claim to be loyal yet betray.
I'm doing what's best for me and my life, but I do have a word or two of advice for my former friend. This pit bull act you're putting on is not a good look. I know you've got to make yourself feel better about losing me as a friend and selling out, but I have to tell you, it's so sad to watch and I have been praying for you. If I were you, I would get a real team around me with real advice, because it's obvious your advice is coming from your wife! Girl bye!
