Thank you all so much for watching this season of RHOD! It has been a learning experience that I will never forget! I am happy that I was a part of this ensemble cast. I tried my best to be completely honest and raw and gave 100%.
The Reunion was such a hard day for me. It was over a year of pent up emotion that needed to be aired. I was so done with the negativity and lies that went down over the season. When Andy got to my marriage with Mark, I lost it. The anger I felt about the gossip and lies that had been going on behind my back had come to a head and turned to tears. The story that LeeAnne told was one that I had never even heard. I got so emotional talking about my husband because I love him so much and he is such a good person. Obviously, his reaction makes it clear that he has also really been affected by all that was said, too. Thankfully, one therapy session with Andy Cohen got out a year and a half’s worth of gossip and lies that I had tried to coax out for quite some time...but I digress...
The moment that I walked off set I was utterly overwhelmed…I was crying so hard my right eyelash fell off and I had snot dripping down my face…I really don’t love my cry face (especially for public viewing). I just needed to regain my composure. After I got that out, I felt better. I’m so thankful I got everything on the table and out in the open.
Rather than rehash anything else negative, I would like to focus on the positives that were also out there in full view. My amazing cast mates have some truly wonderful qualities:
Stephanie: Heart of gold. This woman is smart as a whip and classy as the day is long. She has been the voice of reason and a shoulder to cry on. This experience has brought me this amazing woman and for that I am grateful. I know she will be a lifelong friend that I trust and adore.
Brandi: Hilarious and honorable. I have found a friend that can calm my fears and make me laugh. She is truly a blessing and the girl I want to bring on a girls weekend for life! I love spending time with her and find her to be very entertaining.
Tiffany: Loyal and genuine. A beautiful women that is an inspiration. Loyal to a fault, but understandably so. I hope to continue to get to know her for who she is.
LeeAnne: Strong and giving. I feel for her and her struggles in life. I can truly understand where that angry little girl comes from. I pray that she continues on her road to healing. It is a long road but in the end I hope it leads to fulfillment and happiness. While there will probably still be great challenges, I am optimistic that we have a real opportunity for a meaningful future relationship.
There were many ups and downs this season but I am glad you saw it all. That is the reality. Not everything is rainbows and unicorns but it is real. Thank you again! Sending you all love and light.
