Ladies and Gentlemen, please take your seats because the Pageant of Bullsh-- is about to begin!
I want to start off this week's recap by stating the truth clearly. While I have worn many crowns, I have NEVER referred to myself as a queen! However, Mrs. Lock CANNOT say the same! Just scroll through her social media... Girl, you can have the title.
When I heard about the argument between Stephanie Hollman and Kameron Westcott, I gave myself a pat on the back for going to bed early! It was clear to me that Kameron was hung up on the words that Stephanie had used, while Stephanie was focusing on the intention of the conversation. There were two different conversations happening and when you add alcohol to the mix, people get confused about what they are hearing and that spells T.R.O.U.B.L.E. In the van heading to snowmobiling it was SO uncomfortable and when Brandi Redmond started the conversation I think we all thought "Oh, Jesus, don’t let this go bad!” When Brandi said she felt targeted you could see the shocked look on Kameron's face - THAT was when I knew the disagreement wasn’t about what either person thought it was! HAHAHAHA! Yes,Cary Deuber! LeeAnne is the voice of reason! FREAKY, RIGHT?
OMG! I can’t stop laughing at Cary saying I would taste like veal because I don’t work out but would be the hardest to kill. Can’t breathe... laughing so hard! And Stephanie is 100% correct, she is the only tender and nice in the group consistently.
Now on to this so-called "fight," aka the beginning of the pageant of bullsh-- that took place at 3 AM. I have a VERY clear recall about what the argument was about, being the person who consumed the least shots all day and… D'Andra Simmons did tell us how she was THE MOST important person in the group and we should all kiss her ass, but your new alliance would never allow you to say that! I jumped up to remind her that we are ALL IMPORTANT to this group. #TruthBomb At 3 AM. I LOVE Cary jumping in and saying that D’Andra was "really a lot more aggressive" than me! #truthmoment. Let me be CLEAR- I am not now nor have I ever been the queen of anything or any group! D’Andra the crown is all yours!
Now to the Pageant of Bullshit- “So with your hands…” I love when Brandi tries to stir sh-- up and I just step to the side and let that ball go right past me! Like I said, I have competed in seven nationally televised pageants. You think I don't know how to rock an introspective question? Now on to D'Andra's answer, “I feel it’s really inappropriate to call people out... it makes people uncomfortable and I don’t like to make anyone uncomfortable” Get ready for her to CALL ME OUT and MAKE ME UNCOMFORTABLE. Maybe she actually provides her own foreshadowing? YUP! You are going to ASK me or ACCUSE ME? Let's find out.
I have never said to anyone that I didn’t think I couldn’t be happily married. I believe in my soul that a happy marriage is waiting for me so the question made no sense. I answered the question with what the truth was for me at the time. Rich has been permanently blinded due to a misdiagnosis from a duty-related injury, that we as a couple, have been learning how to accept, deal with and move forward with this new situation in our lives. We have gone through hope, frustration, agitation, misplaced anger and so much more. Losing your vision is LIFE ALTERING. When you have to leave a 30-year profession where you have been decorated with awards for valor in the line of duty, it creates frustration that neither of us knew how to deal with. The stress has been incredible. So, I made the choice not to talk about the wedding while we dealt with the loss of his vision. Being patient with someone you love should be considered a kindness, not a weakness as my so-called "best friend" is implying.
Last week when it was NONE of Kam's business why Brandi kept her baby a secret for three months WHY this week is it D'Andra's business WHEN, WHERE, WHY or HOW I get married? She and the rest of this gang need to realize that my wedding, is my business. What no one in this group realizes is, we got engaged and things were great! We were asked to keep it a secret and then - BAM - Rich was blinded. That changes things. We are learning to find our new happiness in our new life. Why is D'Andra so set on making Rich seem like a bad person when he is one of the best people I have ever known! I would never go after Jeremy this way. So I’m confused why she is attacking me! Let me be clear- I just said HIS EYE INJURY was why I choose not to PUSH a wedding. Am I scared to get married? Uhh, yes! You all have seen me, I can be batshit crazy at times! Do I think a person deserves to have to deal with my craziness full time for the rest of his life…. let me turn this question over to my self-esteem. But first, let me point out, THIS is a DIFFERENT QUESTION than the one I was asked. “I have no doubt in my mind that he is my soulmate!” As I stated. When Cary asks me if I am afraid I am going to self-destruct in my relationship she hit the nail on the head. I have lived a very self-destructive life. This moment for Cary to recognize this and then offer me her confidence in me shows how far we have come in such a short period of time. Thank you, Cary!
“Do you remember what you did to me?” asks D'Andra of me. You told me you were in love, D'Andra. I supported you the way a best friend should! I held your hand and gently encouraged you. I didn’t stick my finger in your face and DEMAND answers! How quickly we go from you crying about my gentle encouragement to “LeeAnne, I want to know what the f--- is going on! You need to get it together bitch, right now!” WOW! Great gentle encouragement. Kameron please hand over your badger sash to D'Andra. Want to know why I started crying? Because I was being badgered!! How D'Andra can go from saying that she doesn’t know what is going on to Rich is scared and has backtracked is a bunch of bullsh--. WHY ARE YOU ATTACKING my relationship?
For Brandi to interrupt D'Andra's badgering and come over to me hold me should let you know how bad it actually was! SAVED BY AN EYELASH! Now that we have made it through the Pageant of Bullsh-- stay tuned for next week's Rodeo of Bullsh--! Is anyone else getting tired of the poop around here? As always, talk with me on social media and I will answer. One thing is for certain, I will always speak my truth.
