Texts & Love

I wanted to take a minute to thank you all for your support. I am blown away! I don't want anyone to get in a Twitter war or be mean to anyone (that's why I don't tweet mean comments myself or even RT mean comments people send me about my family or cast members), but I really do appreciate all of the honest love and support.

I thought taping the Reunion was bad enough, but the crazy accusations being thrown at me this week are insane. You know I don't usually comment on rumors about me but when a lie comes right out of a cast member's mouth and involves our children, I cannot sit back. So yes, I did give a statement to AOL about Melissa's "roughing her up" story: http://huff.to/SICJkp And no, I'm not suing anyone, I'm not about that. 

I also never said I was going to sue Jacqueline or that she "threatened" me over text. I got flustered and frustrated on a live TV show and said I was thinking about going to the cops over her crazy texts. I never wanted to talk about the texts at all, but she told Anderson Cooper when she was on his show that I didn't "reach out" to her about Nicholas' autism. That led to horrible stories about how mean I am, but I ignored them because I knew it wasn't true. Then I went on his show and he questioned me about it and the story got bigger...

So I want to clear it up directly with you, right here, right now. Here's the thing: Jacqueline's big "reveal" about Nicholas wasn't news to me -- I knew like the other Housewives did during the season. And I supported her through it all for months in person. She asked me not to talk about it on camera, and even though I was asked to, I did not.

When she decided to announce it to the public in People magazine, she had a business associate call to tell me. I guess because she was afraid she'd seem hypocritical for going after me all season for putting my family in magazines. I told the woman on the phone to please relay my good wishes to Jacqueline and Nicholas. I did also wish her well via text. I guess Jacqueline admitted that in a statement Anderson read to me yesterday, but said it wasn't enough. I'm sorry, I don't know what I else I can do. I was there in person, I respected her wishes, I wished her well twice...

I don't know why but Jacqueline put up a few of her texts between us on Twitter and now they are news stories... I'm sick of this whole thing, physically sick, but I want you to have the entire story, so here are all of the texts. Draw your own conclusions. I haven't deleted any texts from me--I usually just ignore them but they keep on coming! I did black out the names of other people though b/c I don't think they deserve to be dragged into this. They are people we both know or people I used to work with or know that I didn't know Jacqueline knew. She last contacted me last Friday at 1 in the morning, and yes, it does give me the chills, and yes, I wish she would stop.

I haven't contacted her back and I won't because I really do want this to end. I truly wish her and her son and her whole family nothing but the best! I don't want any of my fans to bash Jacqueline or her mother or nieces or whoever else on Twitter. Believe me, I feel your support and I know you feel my frustration. Instead maybe just say a prayer for all of us. xx
