All I have to say is that I am APPALLED at all involved who made a mockery of this event and childhood cancer. This is NOT the place for all this drama. I take this VERY seriously as these are the very babies that I work day in and day out for and I could NOT be more upset over this whole situation. I made it VERY, VERY clear to EVERYONE (even my own family) that me AND my husband were TOTALLY and COMPLETELY against this event being filmed, knowing how Danielle works NOTHING good could have come out of this. This was NOT the arena for drama.
Danielle was MORE than welcome at the Brownstone – that was clear. We cannot control the guests that come to the events thrown at the Brownstone NOR would we ever prevent funds being raised for a sick child. Maybe you should have let the people know you where bringing an entourage of loud mouth trouble makers and the family would have asked you to stay home. This was NOT ABOUT YOU DANIELLE THIS WAS ABOUT A SICK CHILD.
Please except my sincere apology that any of this was not taken as seriously as it should have been and Danielle chose to consider her selfish agenda over common sense and compassion for sick children. SHAME ON YOU.
I'm also so sorry for the North East Ridge Runners organization who held this event for this child and were so insanely disrespected by Danielle and her crew. They were CLEARLY upset that Danielle and her entourage were even there, never mind the scene that they caused. These people do wonderful work and should NOT have been treated or spoken to like that by Danielle's THUGS. This situation was my breaking point. Watch What Happens.
I know you may all say that this is not very positive of me to write, but although I try my best to stay in the positive, I am still human.
Here are some reputable foundations for children with cancer that I support. Please consider supporting them too by making a donation in the name of the beautiful little girl (Emanuela) that was so ignorantly put in the middle of this madness, and please keep her in your prayers.
I will blog about the rest of the episode next week. There is more I have to say but I think that this message and apology should stand on its own.
