As I watched Cary talk to Mark about our Mexico trip, I felt for her because I absolutely see where she is coming from. As a friend to both Brandi and Cary, it was a tough position for me. The last thing I want is to be put in the middle and lose a friend over a fight that had nothing to do with me. I love both of these girls and we always have so much fun together. I wish the three of us could have enjoyed Mexico a little more as a group.
At the Brandi Land White Party, when Brandi told me that Leeanne said Cary said she would never be friends with Brandi and I; my first thought was to look at the source, LeeAnne. I have a great relationship with Cary. I cannot possibly wrap my head around the idea that Cary would just say something like that for no reason. I know Cary and I know LeeAnne. One thing that I have learned well this past year, it is that LeeAnne like to set up situations to work in her favor no matter who it hurts! She has spread lies about all of us, so what reason do I have to believe that she is telling the truth now? Her motive has always been to hurt others while deflecting from her own issues. There is absolutely nothing that leads me to believe anything is different this time. This just seems a little too fishy to me and I have every intention of getting to the bottom of it!
Watching this episode reaffirms my belief that LeeAnne is the source of this issue. During LeeAnne’s FaceTime conversation with Brandi, LeeAnne very clearly wants to involve herself. She is not trying to be a good friend to Brandi, she is plotting to be a good villain to Cary. LeeAnne says she wants to hear Cary say it to “our” faces. She wants the four of us to all sit down and discuss what was said, but why does she need to be there? The answer is to stir the pot while thickening her plot! She said she was “coming to the party to say something to Cary so “we” can hold her feet to the fire. What? Who comes to a party specifically to try and hurt someone? Oh wait…are we seeing a pattern here? Case in point, my halloween party! Leanne was ready to attack Cary from the moment she walked in the door. Someone with that much pint up anger is dangerous. Her amazing recovery from being on your couch the night before so I’ll she could hardly move, to show up with the intention of attacking them is bullying at it’s simplest form. This is scary, toxic and clearly a pattern that needs to stop!
I did not agree with Brandi bringing up Cary being the nurse and nanny to Mark’s kids before they got together. Kids should never be involved in our group’s drama, this instance included! This is unusual behavior for Brandi and I can’t help but notice LeeAnne’s reactions during this scene. It’s like she almost gets a high from watching Cary squirm; very disturbing! Or, should I say, Very LeeAnn!!!
In that moment I could clearly see that Cary was very hurt. I think Cary could tell how hurt Brandi and I were by her comment, but I almost feel as though we weren’t able to have a full conversation because LeeAnne was yelling at someone in between every breath. If the attention is not on you, I guess your suppose to throw a wine glass on the ground, rip off your belt and get in someone’s face? Hmm, not my idea of conflict resolution! #JesusHelpMe
I know Cary genuinely has love for Brandi and myself, as do we for her. These friendships are clearly worth fighting for. I want to sit down and have a conversation, in private, so we can work this out before it is too late and the damage is unrepairable. I am not going to prolong having another discussion with a friend because LeeAnne is in the middle again. I feel some puzzle pieces starting to align!
