Bravotv.com: What do you think about Ashley encouraging you to date?
Robyn Dixon: Let's be real here, Ashley is still a relatively new friend, so her interest in my life puzzles me. She just assumes that I am at home yearning for love and attention from a knight in shining armor, who is going to sweep me off of my feet and take me to some happy island. Had Ashley taken the time to actually ask me how I am doing and what I want in life, she’d realize that dating and finding happiness through a man is not a priority for me right now. I am focused on getting my family and I back to a place of stability so that we never have to experience our past struggles again. If falling in love and dating comes into play somewhere along the way, then that is just a bonus.
Bravotv.com: What were you thinking when Charrisse made her “dropping her name” speech?
RD: I love Charrisse so much but that speech was AWK-WARD! I really wanted to pull the fire alarm so she could stop talking. I thought it was very strange for her to open up to a room full of strangers about what was happening in her life. But on the other hand, I look at it as possibly being therapeutic for Charrisse. Maybe sharing that information in front of a room of strangers provided Charrisse an opportunity to be real about her situation and to accept the harsh reality in her life.
Bravotv.com: What do you think about Ashley going to Gizelle about the rumors before going to you?
RD: If you look closely at Ashley while she is spreading this gossip, you can see that she is smiling and thoroughly enjoying the moment. She is not coming from a place of sincerity, concern, or whatever other B.S. Ashley will try to play it off as. A real friend would have picked up the phone or told me directly in person (like we were just a few days before at Oz). But this isn’t the first time Ashley has enjoyed talking about my life behind my back, so I wasn’t surprised at all to see that she was doing it again.
Bravotv.com: What do you think about Gizelle and Monique's clash? Was Gizelle wrong to talk about Monique or was Monique overreacting?
RD: I totally understand why Gizelle was frustrated with Monique. Gizelle was trying to have a private conversation with Ashley about me and did not feel that it was any of Monique’s business. Monique is very new to the group and Gizelle made the right decision to try to keep her out of our personal drama. Monique totally overreacted, but I can also understand how it may not have been nice to hear that you are being talked about in your own home. However, Monique did come across as if she was just looking for a reason to get into it with Gizelle. And boy did she!
Bravotv.com: What were you thinking when Gizelle told you about Ashley by the car?
RD: Here we go again! I mean this is almost déjà vu. Why is Ashley is being messy and worrying about my life again? And I certainly don’t want to do this, here at this party, with Juan 20 feet away. This is not cool at all. At that moment, I’m just trying to figure out how to not make a scene and draw attention to this little “friend” circle by the car.
